It’s All About You

I adore cats and dogs, and most animals.  So I knew I had to have the suite of products fro the Pampered Pets.  I love all of the products.  Especially the designer series paper!  I love the animal prints that match the stamps, and the coordinating opposite side.  My favorite though is the expressions on the animal’s faces from the paper and the stamps.  I do believe they Smile at us.

 

 

Of course I also believe in spoiling the pets.  So the sentiment I chose for this card pairs perfectly with that idea!!  In making this card I am playing along with the Case This Sketch challenge #378.  Here is the sketch for the challenge.

 

This sketch is wonderful to use up those smaller pieces of DSP that I always seem to have quite a lot of.  Neither of these layers are very large.  I mentioned how much I love the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper at the beginning.  I chose to use two different pieces of the paper for my layers.  The words on the paper behind the pup are so cute and just perfect for it.  I layered the DSP on different card stocks to share the colors a bit more since a lot of the card is the white front.

The puppy is stamped with Soft Suede and colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  I used Light Cinnamon Cider for the dark places, Light Crumb Cake for the allover body, and Dark Flirty Flamingo for the collar and nose.

The sentiment is from the Many Mates stamp set.  It has a great mix of sentiments and fonts.  Different fonts are my preferred ones to use.  The sentiment is punched using the Classic Label Punch.  For the background I used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.  Because it is the 1/2″ size, the tip looks very similar to the tip from the Classic Label.  Another unexpected , but happy, find.

A 3×3 Smile

I made this card as a 3X3 card because I am totally out of my Random Act of Kindness little cards.  Because of  the Covid I have not been going out in what seems like forever.  So I gave them to delivery people.  Now I need new and summer cards.

 

 

Even though my card is 3X3, this would work just as well as a full size card.  I am loving the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  We had a square one a couple of years ago that I really liked.  However, this one is more flexible because of the size.  I am hoping that it stays around for a while.

The sentiment is from the Lovely You Stamp set.  I colored the flower using Stampin’ Write Markers in Magenta Madness, Rococo Rose and Shaded Spruce.  Sadly, you cannot purchase individual Stampin’ Write Markers.  They are only available in color families, or In Color families. The In Color families are only 5 markers, so they are a bit less.  I stamped the Smile with the Magenta Madness Ink Pad.

The gorgeous background is a sheet of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  It is cut to 2 7/8 square.  So I could was able to get 16 pieces from one sheet of DSP.  My RAK cards are back in stock. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend.  Please come back on Monday for another new project.

You Make Me Smile

I want to share some sunshine here and make you all relax and hopefully Smile!  So the next couple of posts are going to be along those lines.  Today I have a daisy, which is simple flower that always makes me smile.

 

 

I have a mix of bundles for this card.  The Daisy Lane stamp set debuted in a previous catalog as a bundle with the Medium Daisy Punch.  Although they are no longer a bundle, they are both in the current catalog.  The other is the Many Mates Bundle.  It is the sentiment and the background for the daisies.  The sentiments for this set are varied and a mix of fonts.  The mixed fonts are always a favorite of mine.

I also used the Lovely Label Punch for the sentiment.  I adore the two different shapes for the ends of the punch.  In case you missed it.  I did a tip in one of last weeks posts that shares how to get the equal distance on each end of your sentiment.  Click HERE to go to that post.  The tip is in the middle of the post.

For the daisies, I punched four daisies to make the two flowers.  I fussy cut the small daisy and the fern.  The fern was an experiment.  I stamped it on Whisper White card stock, and to say it didn’t look good was mild.  The white actually shined, in a bad way!!  So I used my Light Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blend and went over the entire leaf.  I was happy with that.  I was trying not to use another set of dies to get some greenery.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another Smile project.

Hello Fern

The Forever Fern stamp set and the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper are fabulous.  I was not going to order the “leaves” set.  LOL!!!  The first time I saw it stamped, I fell in love.  And it is even prettier in person.  I did a little bit of a fun fold to go with the card today.

 

 

I used two different sheets of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper for this card.  I love the Pretty Peacock added in with the softer colors.

The fun fold is the front right edge.  I folded back 1″ from the edge.  The ribbon is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack.  I love mixing a gingham with floral.  The ribbon is secured on the back of the 1″ piece and then that piece is secured to the card.  I like the idea of showing the strip of DSP on the right side of the inside of the card.  And here is a view of the inside.

 

 

I did not add an inside sentiment since the front says Hello.  I did add that adorable berry to the inside.  The detail is beautiful.

I have all  of the measurements for scoring and the other layers just below here.  I also have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of the post.  Thank you for stopping in today.  Please return tomorrow for another new project.

Measurements and Directions:

  • base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored along the 8 1/2 side at 1″ and 4 1/2″. Fold and burnish both scores.
  • fold back onto the front piece the 1″ scored piece.
  • the DSP is cut to 5 1/4 X 2 for the front, and 5 1/4 X 3/4 for the inside edge.
  • the Pretty Peacock layer is 2 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • the Whisper White layer is 2 1/4 X 4
  • the inside Whisper White layer is 5 1/4 X 3

Peony Love

I have commented a few times regarding the Peony stamp set and that it is my favorite flower.  Today’s card is a bit of an  elegant version using that stamp set.  I rarely do cards on the elegant side.  I hope you like this one.

 

 

The only item from the Peony Garden Suite that I did not use is the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon.  And it would have worked with this card.  I just didn’t think of it.

I really adore this Dainty Diamond 3D Embossing Folder.  It is pretty regardless of which side of the embossed paper you use.  It is another folder that is a bit on the more subtle side.  I like that very much.

The small peony flower is just so pretty.  I stamped it with Gray Granite Ink and colored just the highlights of the blossom with Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  The leaves were colored using the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  It is die cut and then raised using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the stamp set and it stamped in Gray Granite as well.  I stamped it towards the bottom of the card stock and then punched using the Label Me Lovely punch.  The added touch is the Elegant Faceted Gem.

I wanted a bit more for grounding the sentiment and flower.  So I used a 3 X 3 piece of the Peony Garden DSP.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners and then layered the Square Vellum Doily on top.  This could be placed square or diamond angle.  I liked the diamond better.

Thank you so much for stopping in today.  I hope you like this card and will leave some comments.  Please return tomorrow for another new project.

Goat Birthday

I  had a great vacation last week on the beach.  The weather and water were wonderful.  I had filled in my cards to share with a few of the Stampin’ Up! videos.  I hope you enjoyed those.  There are quite a few of them on the Stampin’ Up! YouTube channel.

For today I am sharing a fun stamp set that I know I will be using quite often.  It is the Way To Goat set.

 

 

I love the goat and to me the expression on his face is sort of “I don’t care what you think”.  I love that.  The sentiment goes right along with the expression.

I did minimal coloring on the goat.  I only shaded the darker areas on the body and the flower he is snacking on.  Since he is snacking on what could be a daisy, I paired the Ornate Garden DSP piece of daisies.  I based my colors from that DSP as well.

The banner regarding the cake he ate is cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies.  This banner, and those dies, will get a lot of use.  For the second part of the sentiment, I used the Classic Label Punch.  I cut one end off flush with the edge of the paper to make it a banner of sorts as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I will have another new project to share tomorrow.  I am back in full swing again.

Love and Thanks

My favorite flower is a Peony.  So when Stampin’ Up! debuted the beautiful Prized Peony stamp set, I knew it was coming to my house.  Today’s card is the first time I have inked it up.  I am in love once again!

 

 

This is another time I purchased the entire Suite of products for the Prized Peony.  All of the items are wonderful.  With the exception of the tag punch I used for the sentiment, everything is from the suite of products.

The colors of the Peony suite are gray and pink.  I used Petal Pink and Gray Granite for the card stock colors.  The DSP, Peony Garden Designer Series Paper, shares those colors as well.  The ribbon is a shimmery Gray Granite.

I stamped the flower in Gray Granite Ink and colored with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and Old Olive Light Stampin’ Blend.  It is die cut using the matching dies.  It may be a bit hard to see in the photo, but behind the flower is the Square Vellum Doilies that are also part of the suite.  The vellum is just enough for some added texture.

The sentiment is from the stamp set and it stamped in Old Olive Ink.  It is punched using the Lovely Label Punch.  I found a tip for the cutting of the label length from another demonstrator and then could not find it again.  So I say Thank You and I apologize for not making note of your name when I saw the tip.

Stamp your sentiment and then punch with the Lovely Label punch, either side works the same.  The tip is to save the little piece that was cut off.  Now lay it on the strip of your sentiment at the proper length away from the sentiment to center it.

Now simply trim the strip at the outside of the little piece and then punch.  You should have a perfectly centered sentiment for your project.  Woohoo!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend.

Celebrate

I have a Celebration card to share with you today.  Today is the InKing Royalty Blog Hop with the theme of July 4th.  I could not commit to the hop, but had the theme idea in my brain.  So I decided to play along anyway.

 

 

I started with the new Arrange A Wreath stamp set.  I was going to make a patriotic wreath.  And I sort of did, it just wasn’t what I intended.  My idea wasn’t working so I got the Stitched Stars dies out to make different sizes and colors of stars.  When I noticed the large swirl of stars, I knew it would work perfectly.  It is sort of a banner across my wreath.

I did add a few extra stars to the wreath to evenly balance it out.  I wrapped twine from the Flowers For Every Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.  The Celebrate is from the new stamp set Many Mates.  It is cut using the Ornate Frames dies. The finishing touch was a few Red Rhinestones to some of the white stars.

One of the good things I did on this was to remember our Stampin’ Up! Adhesive Sheets.  I added the adhesive sheet to the Real Red card stock prior to cutting the banner.  It makes for very easy adhesion.  Otherwise I would have had a glue mess on my hands!

Thank you for stopping by today.  It is hard to believe we are mid June already.  July is only a few weeks away.  I will work on another July 4th card for the actual holiday.
