Fabulous

This is my second card using the super cute stamp set “You’ve Got Style”.  This lady is just adorable and a super “smile” card maker.

 

You’ve Got Style, 143898

 

I did not use any designer series paper today.  That alone is unusual.  I also did not start with a color combination or even a plan.  I know, crazy!  I stamped the lady and her kitty and then started coloring.  I used markers this time instead of watercolor pencils.  I wanted a bolder look.

After I got everything colored, I then decided on a color scheme and knew that it had to be bright.  Therefore Real Red and Daffodil Delight seemed to fit perfectly.  Since I did not use any designer paper, I felt like it still needed some background design.  I looked around and came up with this stamp from Oh So Eclectic for a random background pattern.  I think it worked perfectly.  Also, I could not leave off some “Bling”.  So the necklace and the kitty each received a small rhinestone for some sparkle.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate hearing from you and reading your thoughts on the card.

You Are Amazing

I have another quick and easy card for you today.  The sets I have used are older, but wonderful, stamps that I have not utilized in a while.  So I dusted them off and came up with this card

 

All Things Thanks, 143097

 

This is such a sweet card and takes only a couple of minutes and minimum product to complete.  The color choice came from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  It has such unique patterns and is a group of the new InColors for 2017-2019.

The base and Ink are Dapper Denim with the variegated piece of DSP.  I bordered the DSP with a layer of Whisper White card stock and then bordered the Whisper White stamped piece with Dapper Denim card stock.  The flowers are from Flower Shop stamp set and have a matching punch.  I just stamped the center one with full strength Dapper Denim ink and then the other two are stamped after stamping off once.  If you haven’t tried that technique it is a great way to give some depth to your stamped collage type areas.

The sentiment is from All Things Thanks set.  Most of the sentiments in the set are a variation of Thank You, except for this one.  I use it frequently!  And to finish off the card, I added Clear Faceted Gems to the center of the flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  The supplies are listed again at the bottom and clicking on a photo will take you directly to my Online Store.

Coffee With Friends

I don’t even drink coffee and I am in love with this new Coffee Cafe Suite!  Everything in the suite is just wonderful.  And it’s the little things!  The Designer Series Paper is beautiful, the matching framelits are a must have.  I have used the little tag,( I actually think it may be a tea bag!), several times to attach a tag to a little card or gift.  And I know we have had coffee sets from Stampin’ Up! before, but this one is just at at the top of the scale.  So enough of that, here is the card I made.

 

Coffee Cafe Bundle, 145331

 

My color inspiration for this card came from this DSP.  As I mentioned in my comments above, everything in this suite of items is wonderful, and the DSP is no exception.  This paper I used is probably my favorite of the DSP pack. And gave me the color combination.

I did this card with my Stamp Club on Sunday and one of the ladies commented that she would have never put these two colors together.  I responded with “I would not have either” it was the DSP’s fault!!

To give some extra color to the open portion of Soft Sky card stock, I used the coffee mark from Timeless Texture stamp set and stamped in Soft Sky Ink. The coffee cup is stamped in Soft Sky with the lid stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  They were cut out with the matching dies in the Framelits set.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.  The one thing I would change is the little heart stopper in the lid.  I cut it out in Soft Sky card stock and you really cannot see it.  As a redo I would use the Early Espresso or Crumb Cake for that.

Burned Out

The card I have for today is from one of the cutest sets in the catalog.  It is Watts of Occasions.  There are four lightbulbs with matching sentiments.  What could be cuter?  These are designed to bring a smile to the recipient’s face and I promise it will bring a smile to your face as well.  Here is my card.

 

Watts of Occasions, 143867

 

I added the splatter from of Touches Texture stamp set to help with the “burned out” image.  The sentiment is stamped and cut out with the Pretty Label punch.  I layered two black labels behind the sentiment to give it some depth.

And to finish this card, I added one of the other sentiments to the inside of the card.  Here is that picture.

 

This was a super quick and easy card.  I hope you will check out this stamp set, as it meets so many reasons that we make and send cards.  The products I used today are listed below.

Thank you for visiting today.  I very much appreciate it.

 

Berry Burst Beautiful You

I have used this wonderful set, Beautiful You, so many times.  But it seems the sentiments and the ladies seem appropriate for the type of card I happen to need or decide to try.  I hope you have tried playing with this wonderful set. Here is my card for today.

 

Beautiful you, 143637

 

This lovely Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack was my color inspiration.  It pretty much said that I was going to use Berry Burst!  The only discrepancy is the watercoloring of the lady.  I used the Rich Razzleberry Watercolor Pencil and a Blender Pen.

The lady and the sentiment are both die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. In that set of framelits you get squares, circles and ovals.  I just adore using those.  The stitching means I do not have to layer another piece under that die cut.  In this case it would have been difficult due to my color choices.  The set of framelits is most definelty a Must Have for your tool kit of dies.

The finishing touches for this card are the Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding and the Enamel Shapes (I used a Rich Razzleberry shape again to compliment the Berry Burst).  The Crinkled Seam Binding is a dream to work with.  It is extremely light and maneuverable. The bow came out perfect the first time!

Best Friend Badge

I believe anyone would love to receive a card that said they were the Best Friend Ever!  But my idea for this card came from thinking of our lovable, goofy, tennis ball addicted, Chocolate Lab – Marley.  (He never met a tennis ball that he did not love!) He left us a year ago today.  So when I was looking for a card inspiration and saw the sentiment, I knew it was perfect.  Even when he was not perfect, the love and fun we got from him was well worth the troubles.  I am sure you know what I mean.  Here is my Marley inspired card.

 

Badges & Banners, 141610

 

My color inspiration came from the Delightful Daisy DSP.

I stamped the two badges in Tranquil Tide onto a scrap of Whisper White, and punched them using the Best Badge Punch.  The tag is made with a 2″ wide strip of Daffodil Delight and is punched using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I used a tiny strip of the same DSP, just the reverse side, to add a touch to the end of the tag.  The ribbon is White Thick Baker’s Twine.  I just untwisted the part above the tag.  And of course I had to add the gold star to the badge.  There is a tiny bit smaller star in the stamp, but I felt it needed a shinier one!  The star is a Metallic Enamel Shape.

And that is my simple Best Friend card.  I hope you will be inspired to make your own Best Friend card either for a two or four legged friend !!
