Singing Bunnies

I hope you found some products that you needed on yesterday’s 24 Hour Sale.¬† I stocked up on some of the card stock, replaced an ink pad, and a few sets that I had been hesitating on. ūüôā

Today’s project is a quick and cute little Christmas or Winter card.¬† It features the Warm & Toasty stamp set, along with the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.

 

These little bunnies seem to be having a jolly time singing their songs.¬† I went with the haphazard layout of the layers for a bit of extra fun.¬† The bunnies are stamped and colored using Stampin’ Blends.¬† They are punched using the Label Me Lovely Punch.¬† For more texture, I added a mix of ribbon pieces behind the punched layer.¬† I colored the Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon with the Poppy Parade Stampn’ Blend for that bright Poppy color!

I stamped the sentiment, which is included in the stamp set, directly on the DSP.  This was another pretty quick card that would be great for multiples.  The background layers are 5 X 3 3/4 and 4 3/4 X 3 1/2.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I really appreciate it.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for a Thanksgiving and Thankful card.

Best Time Of Year

Today’s card is a perfect layout to use leftover strips of designer paper.¬† You can alter everything easily to coordinate for a specific occasion.¬† My version today is a Winter or Christmas card.¬† Although the colors are not your traditional Christmas colors by any means.

 

 

The jolly polar bear is from the Warm & Toasty stamp set.¬† It is full of cute winter images.¬† The DSP is the Play With Pattern Designer Series Paper 6×6 stack.¬† I love all of the colors in the package.¬† I chose the Night of Navy and Calypso Coral for my pairing.

The bear is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored using Stamin’ Blends.¬† There really is not much to color. I did highlight the edges of the bear with the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend to show the “cold”.¬† It does not show up very much in the photo.

The sentiment is from the Host Rewards stamp set A Merry Hello.  It is an adorable stamp set that was high on my must have list when the Mini Catalog debuted.  I love the look of stamping on DSP.  I just forget to do that sometimes.

I have all of the measurements listed just below so you can give your scraps pieces a new look.¬† Thank you for visiting today!¬† I really appreciate you stopping by and love to hear from you.¬† I very much appreciate your comments.¬† Although I had some glitches on Wednesday’s blog hop with comments.¬† They all went to spam!¬† Yikes!!¬† Hopefully that is all corrected now.

A Cup of Sweet for GDP221

I hope you had a fabulous day yesterday!  My hubby and I just relaxed all day, and ate too much.

Today’s card is another use for the Cup of Christmas Bundle.¬† It shows that this stamp set doesn’t have to be for Christmas.¬† To me it seems more like a wintertime set.¬† And that is what I used it as.

 

 

To play along with the Global Design Project 221 Color Challenge, I made a cup of hot chocolate.  To me that is most definitely a Sweet Treat!

Here is the Color Challenge:

These colors, and especially the Early Espresso, made me think of Hot Chocolate.¬† I did a bit of a watercolor wash behind the cup using¬† watered down Shaded Spruce at the bottom and Early Espresso at the top.¬† It was supposed to be a little shadow and then steam coming out of the cup.¬† But when I added the tag it covered up most of my steam.¬† So I went with the tried and true “flicking” of color from Stampin’ Write Markers to give the background some color.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Hopefully you have another day of relaxing to do.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.

Nature’s Christmas

I am giving one last love, probably, to Nature’s Beauty stamp set.¬† I said probably because I may use it again as just a winter time card.¬† I love the animals and the background I envision with them.

 

 

As with most of my cards, this did not end up the way I intended when I began.  But I am okay with that.  I started with the stamp set and saw the negative of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from the challenge card the other day.  That gave me the idea for sponging that I have not done in some time.

I used Pool Party and Balmy Blue for my background sponging but they did not show up very well.  I wanted light, but this was too light.  So I decided to give it a border.  I first used the Journaling Pens on page 170 of the Annual Catalog.  With the negative still in place, I just drew around the inside.  I was a bit off, the negative slipped, but that is okay as well.

The journaling pens gave the look I wanted, but it still needed something.  I decided this leaf would work perfectly.  Sort of like the old pictures you see draped in pine boughs.

I hope this gives you some ideas for all of the negatives I am sure you have from using your die shapes.  Thank you for stopping in today.  Merry Christmas Eve!!

Merry Moose

Today’s card is a winter card as much as for Christmas.¬† I love mixing the stamps and designer series paper to make cards that are for more than a season.¬†¬† This one works as a masculine card as well.

 

 

Who doesn’t love a Moose with a scarf?¬† LOL!!¬† I wanted to give him a softer look and decided I did not want to fussy cut the scarf in the stamp set.¬† I adore the Braided Linen Thread and thought the extra piece as a scarf worked.

The trees are from the Merry Moose Bundle as well.  I stamped them once full strength and then again before re-inking to get the different shades of green.  The one on the far left is stamped a third time without re-inking.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I have a cute Halloween card to share tomorrow for Trick or Treat day!

Snowman

This is my second card from this cute as a button Snowman Season stamp set.¬† I clicked the “I want it all” button on this group of products!

 

 

Even with a bit of coloring using the Stampin’ Blends, this is a quick card to make.¬† My favorite sort of project.¬† With the limited coloring, this would be a perfect card to make multiples of!

You may not be able to see it very well in the picture.¬† But I used the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend on the ground at his feet.¬† I think that it works great to reflect the snow with just a couple of strokes.¬† The hat and scarf are colored with Real Red and Bermuda Bay.¬† TIP:¬† I find that when coloring small spaces like this that using the small tip on the Blends works best for me.¬† That tip is actually larger than the tip of the painting end, but because it is firm I do not run out of the lines of the small space as much.

The Designer Series Paper is from the Let It Snow DSP.  The opposite side has the raised and sparkles area.  But you know I love the flip sides!  The coordinating colors are Real Red and Coastal Cabana.  I chose to go a tad darker and used Bermuda Bay on this one.

The Real Red Curly Ribbon is such a great added element.¬† It is a little thicker though.¬† You almost have to raise your focal point with Stampin’ Dimensionals to keep it smooth.¬† My knot is just a little piece cut off and tied around the main piece.

Thank you for stopping by today.¬† I hope you will return for tomorrow’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop.
