Friendship

Today’s card is a sweet Friendship or Valentine card.  The Country Bouquet Bundle is an awesome one.  I love the colors of the Designer Series paper.  It is a happy paper for sure.

 

Stampin' Up!, Country Bouquet, Country Floral, Heart Punch Pack, Heart Pearls, Jackie Beers

 

Paper

This beautiful DSP is the Country Floral Designer Series Paper.  The colors and designs are somewhat Country, as the name suggests.  But they are wonderful together and have a different sort of mix.  I love the unexpected bicycle print on the larger piece I used.  The vertical strip of Balmy Blue DSP is from the same pack of papers.  And of course, all of my other color choices came from the bicycle print.

Stamps

I do have to say that the Country Bouquet Punch is out of stock until April.  However, you can still purchase the stamp set.  The sentiment and stamps are wonderful and since it is a punch containing the two hearts, you could quite easily cut them out.  I stamped and then cut these two hearts.  The left and right ones are from the set.  As is the sentiment.

Punches

As I said, the Country Bouquet Punch is not in stock, but there are other heart punches.  For the center heart with the sentiment, I used the Heart Punch Pack.  This is the smaller of the two hearts.  I believe it fits perfectly here between the two curvy hearts.

Finishes

To complete the card, I chose the Sweet Sorbet as the background for the bicycle print.  That is the color I used to stamp the two hearts also.  And since there are hearts in the strip of Balmy Blue DSP, I added one more.  The Heart Pearls are a wonderful embellishment to have on hand.  They fit in here perfectly.

Love Cats

Cats can be the sweet, playful, and so funny, which is why I love them.  Not to say they cannot be a pain sometimes!  But if there is a cat stamp I must have it.  Today’s card is using the Love Cats stamp set.  And I do love these guys.

 

Stampin' Up!, Love Cats, Flowers & More, Layering Circles, Decorative Circles, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

This cat is definitely in the Love category.  I have two sisters who both love to roll in the floor and play.  This image fits them perfectly.  The Love Cats set has three cat images and fun saying to go with each one.  I have used the hanging out cat previously.  You can see it HERE.   Both the cat and the sentiment are stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Papers

To continue the Fun theme, I went with a bright and happy piece of DSP.  This sheet is from the Flowers & More Designer Series Paper.  It is another of the multi-packs of paper that is a Host item in the Mini Catalog.  I love the multi-packs for making multiples of one card or 3D projects.  Sometimes you need more than two sheets of one pattern.

As usual I picked the DSP first.  Then I found colors in the paper that I thought would go with my image.  The card base and cat layer are Balmy Blue with the heart and layer in Polished Pink.  I covered the bases for a sweetheart card for guys or gals.

Extras

To give some added dimension I used the Decorative Label Punch as the background for the kitty.  Just having a different shape behind the circle really pops.  The circle is cut using the Layering Circles Dies.  If you still have circle punches,  this is about 2″.

And for the finishing touch I used the new Pastel Sequins.  To not play favorites, I used both pink and blue there also.  These sequins are really nice and come in two different sizes.  I love that.

Love You!

Today’s card is a sweet Love You! card for anyone.  It is pairing old and new products for the Make My Monday Challenge.

 

Stampin' Up!, Count On Me, Country Bouquet, Dainty Flowers, Heart Punch Pack, Three Twine Combo, Jackie Beers

As I mentioned at the top of the page, this is my card as a designer on the Make My Monday Blog Challenge with the theme of Love Is In The Air.   Please click on the image below to be taken to the blog.  You will see the other designers’ cards and can upload your own version of the theme.

New Products

I said this card is a combination of old and new products.  I am going to begin with the New ones.  The DSP is from the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper , which is a Sale-A-Bration item.  That means it is FREE with a qualifying order of $50.00.

The second new is the I Love You stamp.  This special little stamp is part of the Country Bouquet stamp set.  It is a Valentine and Love type set with a country theme.  And I do Love it!

The third and final New item is the Thread.  To add some extra detail at the top of the card, I went with the Garden Green Bakers Twine from the Three Twine Combo Pack.  Even though my card stock is not Garden Green, the shading works perfectly.

Loved Products

I don’t want to be rude and call this group of products OLD, so I am using the well loved description!  The Koala Bears are from the Count On Me stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  It is a variety of animals with lovely expressions and signs of affection.  These two hugging seemed perfect for the Love theme.

The next two items are the heart layers for the Koala Bears.  They are the Heart Punch Pack duo.  These are such a perfect size for so many images in the catalogs.  I used Mossy Meadow for the large scalloped heart so it would contrast more against the DSP.

And the final of the Loved products is the little bit of bling.  This is one of the 2021-2023 Opal Dots.  It shows a bit darker in person.  I wanted a little something to pair with the yellow flowers of the paper.  Everything else is on the deeper tones of color.

Thank you for stopping in today!

InKing Royalty January Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January 2023 Blog Hop! If your craft projects aren’t already filled with hearts, then you might be behind the eight ball. No worries – we are here to help. We are excited to share our heart-filled creations with you and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The Hearts theme was an easy one to follow with the fabulous new Country Floral Lane Suite of products in the new Mini Catalog.  I loved this Suite as soon as I saw it and hope you will as well.

Stampin' Up!, Country Bouquet, Country Floral, Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon, Bough Punch, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Punches

My card is sort of a Heart Bouquet.  And is not at all what I had planned originally!  The Country Bouquet Bundle is a Punch Bundle.  That was where I was originally headed.  Then I saw the floral heart that I have used and changed directions just a bit.  I did use the leaves from the punch.  They are slightly hidden by the bow.

However, the floral heart intrigued me and I had to give it a try.  It is a two step heart with the flowers and greenery separate.  The flowers are stamped using Sweet Sorbet Ink and the greenery is Pear Pizzaz.  Sadly with this being a punch bundle, I had to cut out the heart myself.  Since a heart is mostly straight lines that was not a huge undertaking.   I did use the leaves from the stamp set in Pear Pizzaz as well and punched them using the Country Bouquet Punch.  Then decided it needed more greenery to look like a bouquet.  So out came the Boughs Punch for the background greens.  This punch has been getting a lot of use from me of late.

Papers

To continue with the Sweet Sorbet and Pear Pizzaz, I went with a striped piece of DSP.  It is from the Country Floral Designer Series Paper that is also included in the Suite of products.  I layered the striped DSP onto a piece of Basic White and then to the base card of Pear Pizzaz.

Finishes

There are several final add on touches to complete this card.  First is the sentiment.  It is from the Country Bouquet stamp set as well.  So this is a one set card basically.  I love that!!  But it is die cut with a die from the Beautiful Trees Dies.  It is nothing flashy, and just has a bit of an embossed border around the edges.

The most notable of the finishes is the beautiful bow.  The Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon is so pretty and extremely easy to work with.  Due to that I went a bit out of the norm and created a three strand bow.  I love how it really pops up.  And the final touch is the Festive Pearls scattered around.  There are some on flower centers of the heart, and one on the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sheryl Abernathy at Elegant Sentiments. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Hearts For You

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you!  Surprisingly, I have made a very simple card to share with you.  Sharing our hearts is always a good thing and I hope this card gives you a Smile!

 

Stampin' Up!, Sweet Conversation, Sweet Hearts, Sentimental Swirls, Happy & Heartfelt, Jackie Beers

 

This 3 Heart card is also for the Make My Monday Challenge.  I hope you will give this challenge a try and allow us to see your spin on 3 Hearts!  Here is a link to the site.

Stamps

I joined two different stamp sets for this 3 Heart challenge, plus a matching die set.  The sentiment is from an awesome stamp set named Happy & Heartfelt.   And since fonts are a measuring tool that I use for sentiments, I give this one a 10!  All of these are fun ones like this and are a great mix of sayings.  For the second stamp set, I used the large swirl fro the Sentimental Swirls set.  It was perfect for “hanging” my hearts on.

Dies, Texture, and Fun

The hanging hearts are from the Sweet Hearts Dies.  They are part of the Sweet Conversations Bundle, which I have used several times.  And I did use it on the inside of the card.  I chose two of the heart shapes and die cut two of each to see how they fit best on the swirl.  They are “hanging” from the little Classic Matte Dots in White.

I hope you can see the background texture also.  It is the Tasteful Textures Embossing Folder and gives just enough of a fancy paper feel for the simplicity of the card.  To finish the card, I went with the great Open Weave Ribbon in Polished Pink.  I think it adds the bit of a fancy touch to finish the card.

Double Card Fun Fold

 

A Fun Fold Blog Hop is my favorite.  Because I truly love Fun Folds of any kind.  Today’s card is a Double Card with an Extra Fold.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sweet Conversations Bundle, Sweet Talk DSP, Special Moments, Jackie Beers

 

Paper and Folds

This Fun Fold is cased from Lisa Cursio.  I love mixing the different patterns of paper from the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper.  I have used two pieces from that paper pack.   I love mixing Red and Purple reminiscent of the Red Hat Club colors.

The fold is actually very easy to do.  It just takes a bit more cardstock.  The card base is 5 1/2 X 10 1/2, so more than half of a piece of 8 1/2 X 11.  Other than the larger size, the folds are a base card with a smaller card added to it’s front.  The Plus, is the extra side fold.  Here are the other views of the card.

Stamps and Dies

The stamps and dies are from the Sweet Conversations Bundle.  It is part of the Suite with the Sweet Talk DSP.  The front tag is from the Sweet Heart Dies.  This is probably my favorite of the set.  It is a perfect size!  Both the sentiment and the heart are from the set.  And the inside Luv U is from the set too.  The only different stamp set is the Special Moments set from the SAB catalog.  It is the Wonderful statement on the inside.
