Frosted Thank You

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???

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate your time.  All of the supplies, limited as they are, are listed at the bottom of the post.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Whisper White Notecards and envelopes
  • Whisper White card stock 3 1/4 X 4 3/4
  • DSP Strip 2 X 4 3/4

Country Home

I have another Country Home stamp set card today.  I really am loving this set.  For today I combined Country Home with Love What You Do stamp set.  I almost named the post Country Pitcher, LOL!  The pitcher reminds me of the old blue metal dishes that were speckled and usually had a tad of rust on them.  Am I dating myself? HaHa.  Anyway, I turned it into a vase.

Country Home, 147678

 

Isn’t that Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper just beautiful?  Stampin’ Up! continues to top themselves on the beauty of the DSP.  This pack has each sheet with one side that is either pearly or copper.  It is just “WOW!!

Because I wanted a blue pitcher, I chose to focus on the blue of the DSP.  My base card is Blueberry Bushel.  I have used it before, but when I put it with this DSP it just seemed to brighten.  My coloring is with the Stampin’ Blends.  I love how they seem to blend themselves and do not leave lines.  I am definitely not a great blender!

To finish off the card I knew it needed something but I did not want to cover up the DSP.  So I added the Pearlized Doily.  It sort of blended into the paper, so I backed it with a Blueberry circle.  The sentiment is stamped and backed with Blackberry Bliss.  I added just a single pearl to go with the pearlized paper and doily.

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it.  I have a complete supply list at the bottom of the page.  Also I have included the measurements just below.  Thanks again and please stop back tomorrow.

You’re The Best

I was so excited when I saw this typewriter set in the new Annual Catalog.  It reminded me of a favorite from a few years ago.  I have made several Thank You 3X3 cards with it that I have not shown here.  So today I have a full size card to share.

 

P.S. You’re The Best, 146516

 

I used only the stamps included in the stamp set.  I love being able to complete a card with only one stamp set.  The background blue layer is Balmy Blue stamped with Balmy Blue Ink.  The blue of the center is Balmy Blue Ink applied with an Aqua Painter.

I stamped the typewriter and then used a mask to place over it to stamp the flowers.  One flower is stamped and fussy cut out to give some depth.  They were all colored using Stampin’ Write Markers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Blog Hop card as well.  Please be sure and check back on Monday, but also next Wednesday is the InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There will be lots more great ideas for you.

A Fall Blended Season

I debuted the Blended Seasons Bundle during the July InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  You can see that card HERE.   This stamp set is only available during August and While Supplies Last!  The stamps are perfect for Spring/Summer, Fall, and Christmas.  But the Framelits are spectacular.  They match a few of the stamps but the best part are the three layers that are stitched!  They are stitched inside the cutting line and leave stitching around the outside of the cut out.  It’s a super look!  Take a look at today’s Fall inspired card.

 

Blended Seasons Bundle, 149894

 

 

I used one of the layering dies from the matching framelits so you can see the stitching.  The background is the Subtle Embossing Folder.  The leaves are part of the Blended Seasons set as well as the Die Cut leaf.

I stamped the leaves in Cherry Cobbler Ink and then used the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen to color the leaves.  The sentiment is from the precious Host Stamp Set – Very Vintage.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend and will return to see my Monday project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Don’t forget about Bonus Days!!!  For every $50.00 you spend (at one time) during August, you will receive a coupon code worth $5.00 to use in September.  It’s like getting paid to shop!

Watercolor Notecards

It helps if you put the correct date on the scheduled post.  Sorry about that!!

Today I have a one layer card.  That is super unusual for me.  I do love my layers!  But I hope when you see this one, you will consider these great notecards as quick and easy cards to have on hand.  Half of the work is already done for you.  Take a look and then I will explain what is already on the card.

 

Delightfully Detailed Notecards, 146911

 

 

I love how this card turned out!  These notecards are delivered with the watercolor wash look already on them.  They are half in Mint Macaron and half in Blackberry Bliss.  I love the subtle watercolor look which screams for you to just stamp on top of it.  The Blackberry Bliss has a darker background and is maybe even more beautiful.

These notecards would be the perfect way to make and have on hand some quick Thank You type cards, or for a beginner crafter to not have to worry about doing layers.  You get 20 notecards and envelopes for $9.50.

I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede and the tree by coloring with my Stampin’ Write Markers in Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede.  And that is the completed card!  It cannot get much simpler than that.  The stamp set is Rooted In Nature, a wonderful set, especially for more masculine cards.

I also stamped on the envelope to give a little “something special is in here” look to it.  I try to always remember to do that.  It is a leaf from the same set stamped in Mint Macaroon.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return on Monday.  Please remember to review all of the current specials.  The JOIN NOW is the best ever!!!

Detailed Smiles

I have another quick and easy card today.  I am also showcasing the beautiful Highland Heather from the Stampin’ Up! Color Revamp.  It is gorgeous!  And I am once again using the Detailed With Love stamp set.  It is a very versatile set for sure.

 

Detailed with Love, 146606

 

I have also, for the first time, used the new Stampin’ Up! Embossing Mats.  I used it for the detailed cutting in the center of the card.  I may not have needed to do that, but I did not have a lot of time and didn’t want to mess up the card.  So I played it safe and I love the outcome. I will definitely be playing with these mats more in the near future.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  This is a very simple layout that could be utilized in a variety of ways.  I hope you will give it a try.
