I hope everyone is safe and well after the nasty weather of the weekend. We were very lucky and did not get the ice that was expected.
Today’s card is a quick and easy one that could be done with almost any stamp set and designer paper. I used the awesome Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. I really do love that paper!!
Enjoy Life, 148190
I did a different pairing of colors than I have done previously. I paired Coastal Cabana with Tranquil Tide. I was attempting to bring out the lighter / brighter blue in the DSP. The positioning of the sentiment is totally to show off the beautiful DSP. And I really like it in the corner, as opposed to centered. Not your normal positioning and I like that as well.
I hope you liked my quick and easy card. Please return tomorrow for a new project. All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Once again I have been playing with the pieces of scrap paper on my desk. We all have those little strips or scraps that we have punched something from. I really do try to keep it neat, but I do not always succeed (well, rarely succeed!). Today’s card is more of the leftovers.
Country Home, 147678
Today’s layout is one of the easy to use classics. Even if you do not like the card, please make note of the layout.
My background banner piece is actually a sneak peek of a DSP in the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog. it is from a make ‘n take we had at OnStage that I did not make. I believe the card called for the opposite side of this piece, but I loved the vibrancy of this side better. I may have stamped my piece too similar to the print of the DSP. The strip of white is stamped on with First Frost stamp set for the flower. A definite “Keeper” set. The little leaf is from Peaceful Noel. It added just enough of a soft touch.
The sentiment is one of my all time favorites from the Country Home set. That set will for sure be staying with me, and I really hope it carries over to the 2019 Annual Catalog. It is a very versatile set with awesome sentiments.
Thank you for stopping by today! All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page. I hope your day is amazing!

Today’s card is a case of a wall decoration I saw on pinterest. That was a painting instead of a card. But I thought it would make a great card. The concept is nothing new, but the look of the fence was the inspiration and one I have not previously made.
Rooted In Nature Bundle, 148353
I mentioned above that I have made similar cards with a cut out that is raised above the stamped image. But I had not used a different type shape, like this leaf. I had not previously used the Wood Textures DSP either. I love the wooden fence look.
I added the die cut/stamped leaves in front of the tree as some added dimension. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the final result. I hope you will give this a try using different shapes for the cut out.
The cut apart words are also a first for me. I am not sure why I spread them around the card, but when I tried with them all together, it just did not work for me. A day of difference!
The tree in the background is colored with Stampin’ Write Markers. I really hate that they cannot be ordered individually right now. I periodically add that to the idea box on the Stampin’ Up! website. Hopefully it will be an option in the future.
Thank you for stopping by. I will be back on Monday with a new project. I hope you will check in to see what it is. Here is wishing you a good weekend to come!
Today is another of my Stamp Club Fall Swap cards. It also fits perfectly with the challenge from Global Design Project #163. That is to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary/Birthday. And to share what we all love about Stampin’ Up!. For me, Stampin’ Up! is the definition of Friends and Sharing. I have made some fabulous and longtime friends through Stampin’ Up!. I cherish them all and am so thankful for what brought us together. So my card today fits perfectly on that idea of a Grateful Heart.

I shared this type card once before on a Blog Hop. It is the Double Z Fold Step card. It sounds complicated but is super easy to make. I love easy that packs a WOW.
This card layout does require designer series paper. On this one, I mixed some DSP. My favorite part is the sentiment though. I LOVE that saying, as well as the mixture of fonts. I am crazy for a mix of fonts.
Here is a side view of the Double Z.

I am sharing with you in the next couple of days cards that I made for my Stamp Club’s Fall Swap. Then it is off to Orlando for the Stampin’ Up! 30th Anniversary! I am so excited. If I read the information correctly, we can share new products this time. Usually we cannot. So be sure and follow me on Facebook for the updates. I may not be able to do new posts but I know I will be able to add to the Blueline Facebook page.
Now, back to the cards. The first is from my favorite set, Wishing You Well. I have shared a similar card before I believe. But this is definitely a keeper in the layout department. When making multiples this card is awesome.
Wishing You Well, 147864
I purposely did not put a sentiment on the front. That is the great thing about this stamp set. You do not need a sentiment to ground it. The additional bonus is that you can make multiples and put the appropriate sentiment on the inside as you need a card to send. A Win / Win situation!!
I have listed all of the information on today’s card below, as well as the supply list. Thank you for stopping in today. And be sure to like my Facebook page for updates from Orlando beginning on Thursday.
NOTE: There is a new feature being tested in the Online Store. It is “Shop the Project”. There are pictures of a card, etc, and you can click on it and see all of the supplies used. If you need any of them, you simply click on that item and it goes into your shopping cart. How cool is that??? Hopefully it will be utilized and become an added bonus to the website.

I have a quick and easy Thank You card for today. I have used the Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes. They are The Best for quick, easy, and clean cards. Plus they are a great value for your money! I have added a small piece of the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper and it is finished.
Frosted Floral DSP, 147800
And this is not even the prettiest side of that piece of DSP!! It is still gorgeous, and I love all of the sheets in this pack of paper. I wanted a simple and clean card though. So I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock a 1/4″ smaller than the card. I then layered the DSP strip, added the piece of ribbon, and the sentiment. It was finished very quickly! This would make a great little Hostess type gift. Take several of these and wrap a pretty piece of ribbon around them.
The sentiment is from the Million Dollar set, Many Blessings. As I have said before, that set is a keeper!! I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzaz and punched it out using the Darling Label Punch. It is the Punch Box in the current Annual Catalog. Another fabulous punch from Stampin’ Up!’s collection.
I apologize for the little smudge on the picture. I am not sure where that is from. I use my phone for photos and cannot imagine how you would get a smudge on there??? Any thoughts???
