Friendship Highlights

 

Hi!  Today I am playing along in Kylie’s International Project Highlights!  I haven’t had a chance to play along the past few months – so am happy to be back today!  Our theme this month is Friendship! I’d love your vote for my card!  Hop over here and click the heart on my card to vote for i!

Here is my card:

Friendship, Sand Dollars, Sea of Texture, Thoughtful Banners, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #internationalprojecthighlights

I just LOVE the Sea of Textures suite!  From the fun and quirky to the soft and subtle, this suite has it all!    I did a little watercoloring for the background as well as splattering with a marker.  The sand dollars and coral are die cuts from the coordinating framelits.  My sentiment is formed using words from the Thoughtful banners set.

Here is a video showcasing this card:

In the Sea

Hi! Today I have a card showcasing the Tranquil Textures Suite in the new catalog!  The Sea of Textures Stamp set and dies are so  fun to play with!

Thanks, Octopus, Sea of Textures, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2018AnnualCatalog

I demonstrated this card on Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live yesterday.  I love all the different elements on this card along with the color combination!  The three main colors are Fresh Fig, Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide.

The base of the card is Mint Macaron.  A piece of Designer Series Paper from the Tranquil Textures pack is mounted on that at a skewed angle.

A Watercolor Wash technique using the three colors was applied to a piece of Watercolor Paper.   The net behind the octopus is die cut with the coordinating dies from Crumb Cake card stock.  The octopus is Fresh Fig which is first stamped on scrap paper, then on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. He is die cut using the coordinating die.   The sentiment is stamped in Tranquil Tide ink.  The octopus is attached using dimensionals.

The finishing touch is thick Baker’s Twine using the Nature’s Twine collection.

Here’s the video – it is the second card:

One More To Whet Your Appetite

Hi! Today I have one more card using the Share What You Love Bundle!  The deadline for ordering your bundle and getting FREE goodies with it is almost over.  So, maybe this one will tempt you to place that order!

Birthday, Love What You Do, Share What You Love, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2018AnnualCatalog

I also shared how to make this card in May 22nd’s Tuesday With Teresa on my Facebook page.  Here’s the video – it is the first card:

This is a tri-fold card – thus why the front looks a little off in the picture above.  Here is the card open:

I love different fold cards – they add a little something more to the card.  This card will still fit in an A2 envelope.

Here are the dimensions and scoring for the card:

  • Base – 4 1/4 x 11″ – score at 3 3/4″ and 8 3/4″ on the 11″ side
  • Inside Panel – 4 3/4″ x 4″
  • Front Left Panel – 3 1/2″ x 4″
  • Front Right Panel – 2″ x 4″

To finish off this card, I stamped Happy Birthday from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and flowers and leaves from the Love What You Do stamp set.   This is punched out with the 1 3/4″ circle punch and layered on a 2″ circle punch.   This is then attached to a Pearlized doily.   The doily is attached to just the right front panel.

The leaves on the inside are stamped in Tranquil Tide.

This product suite is sure to be a favorite in any stampers’ collection.  While you will be able to order the products in the bundles separately starting June 1, you can order the bundle and get FREE product when ordered by May 31st.

You Are Remarkable

Hi! Today I have a card featuring the You Are Remarkable set which is retiring at the end of this month.  The flowers in this set are gorgeous and just pop on a card.

Flowers, Thanks, You Are Remarkable, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I had some fun sponging this background.  The bottom part is sponged in Pear Pizzazz while the top is Soft Sky with a hit of Tempting Turquoise.  It is fun to mix the colors a bit to see the final result.

The flower is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and colored with Rose Red and Pink Pirouette markers.  For subtle shading, I’d run the tip of the Pink Pirouette marker lightly over the tip of the Rose Red and then color.  It is a great way to blend the colors together.  The flower is cut out with Paper Snips.  A frame is created using the Layering Squares and Stitched Shapes framelits.  The stem of the flower is put through the frame and then the two pieces are adhered together on the base of the card.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  The stamped panel is mounted to a piece of Basic Black card stock.  The base of the card is Soft Sky.

I also created this same card changing the color of the flower to Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry.

Flowers, Thanks, You are Remarkable, Stampin' Up!, SU!

You only have a few more weeks to purchase this set before it is gone for good.  You’ll find it in my On-Line Store here.

Don’t forget the retiring Colors as we look for a fresh lot of colors in the new catalog.  Remember to purchase a reinker and card stock!

One of the Harder Ones

….in more ways than one.  Sympathy cards are very hard for me to make – it may just be the reason for needing one, but I do tend to struggle when making this type of card.   It will be a little harder yet with the retirement of the “Thoughts and Prayers” stamp set used to make this card.

Sympathy, Thoughts & Prayers, Starry Night, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Waterfront

I went with (or tried to anyway) a “starry night” sky using the Waterfront stamp set (think sand from that set).  This was stamped in Versamark and embossed with White Embossing powder.  I then sponged Crumb Cake and Old Olive ink on the bottom of the cardstock to represent the ground.  Three colors of ink were sponged for the sky – retiring colors Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo with the final layer being Night of Navy.  I am pretty happy with how the colors blended – tho I think I could have used a few more “stars” in the top corners.

After creating the background, I stamped the tree in Basic Black Archival ink.   The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes – another set that is retiring and that I’ll miss.  This is punched out with the Classic Label punch.  A bit of Crumb Cake ink was sponged on this piece to   soften the look of the Whisper White.

What type of card do you struggle with making?

Don’t forget, today is the last day that the following retiring colors are guaranteed for ink pads and refills.  After today, these color products will be available “while supplies last”.    Card stock is already at “while supplies last”.

You’ll find all the supplies to make the above card in my on-line store.  Please consider using Hostess Code: 4CKMSHRT for orders less than $150.  (US, prior to S/H and tax).

For the Graduate

Hi!  It is hard for me to believe that my oldest is graduating in a few short weeks from High School.  I’ve been busy working on her invitations but took a little break yesterday to make a graduation card featuring her school colors.  I LOVE it!!

Graduation, Punch Art, Large Numbers, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Beautiful Bouquet

I had seen the Impossible Fold card created by Dawn Griffith and thought it would be perfect for a graduation card.  I must say, I am sorry to see the Large Number dies and stamp set retiring this month.  If you do not have these (at least the dies) add them to your list! Better yet – get them here now!    They are great not only for graduation, but birthday, anniversary, and even New Years cards.  They are also great for scrapbooking layouts.

For this card, I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Whisper White for my color scheme.  The “1” is a piece of printer paper rolled up and tied with retired Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Boutique and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  The Graduation hat is made using Basic Black cardstock.   I hope her friends will like them!

Tune in to my Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live on May 8 at 7:30pm EST to see just how to make this fun card!

Butterflies Fly Away

Hi! Today I am showcasing the Butterfly Basics stamp set that is retiring at the end of May.  This is such a pretty set!  For both cards, I stuck with Island Indigo, Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip for my color palette.

Butterflies, Butterfly Basics, Bold Butterflies, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, I did stamp off for the Island Indigo stripe on the left as well as the leaves stamped in Soft Sky.  I also did generational stamping for the leaves – ie, I stamped the leaves twice before reinking the stamp.   Linen thread was wrapped around the hand 3 times, then twisted into a figure 8 before being adhered to the back of the butterfly.  I love the layered look of the butterfly.  A few rhinestones down the center finishes it off.

The dimensions for the card stock are:   Soft Sky base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Chocolate Chip mat – 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Whisper White layer – 3 3/4″ x 5″.

I also made this card using the same color palette and stamp set:

Butterflies, Butterfly Basics, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, I used a large post-it note to create a mask for the stamped panel.  I sponged Soft Sky along the left hand edge and then inked the leaves in Soft Sky, stamping off once, before stamping over the sponged area.  After stamping was complete, I removed the post-it note pad.   The butterflies were created in the same manner as in the first card.   To add interest to this card, I added two thin strips of Chocolate Chip cardstock behind the main panel in a diagonal fashion.

The dimensions for this card are: Base – Thick Whisper White – 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″.  Chocolate Chip mat – 4″ x 5 1/4″. Whisper White mat – 3 13/16″ x 5 1/16.   Chocolate Chip strips – 3/16″ x 4 1/4″ (trim off the ends that overhang the panel).  Chocolate Chip mat – 3 7/16″ x 4 11/16.  Whisper White panel – 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.

Here is the video from the Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live showing a demonstration of these two cards:

Sad Saying Goodbye

Hi!  Today I have a card featuring one of my all time favorite sets in the Annual Catalog – Vintage Leaves.  I am extremely sad to see this set and the coordinating framelits leaving this year.

Vintage Leaves, Leaves, Fall, Thank You, Wood Textures DSP, DSP, #loveitchopit, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, I paired the retiring Vintage Leaves stamp set with Wood Words and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  The leaves are stamped directly on the Wood Textures DSP – I love the added depth it gives the leaves.  Here’s a closer look:

Vintage Leaves, Leaves, Fall, Thank You, Wood Textures DSP, DSP, #loveitchopit, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Even the die cut leaf (die cut using the Seasonal Layers thinlet) is die cut from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  The other leaves were stamped in Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake.

The leaves are layered on a  4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Wood Textures DSP and the base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ of thick Whisper White card stock.

The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip (going to miss this color!) and is from Wood Words stamp set.  This is punched with a 1″ circle punch and layered on a 1 1/4″ circle punch of Cajun Craze card stock.   A bow made from linen thread finishes off the card.

If you haven’t yet purchased the Vintage Leaves stamp set and coordinating Leaflet Framelits, I highly recommend getting them now!  Shop my on-line store and use Hostess Code: 4CKMSHRT  This is a great masculine, Thanksgiving, Thank You, Fall, Thinking of You stamp set.

Don’t forget to stock up on the retiring colors – especially grabbing a reinker and cardstock!

Love It, Chop It

Hi!  Today I am sharing my creations using the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  If you Love your Designer Series Paper, Chop It – so you can use it!

#loveitchopit, Daisies, Delight Daisy, Daisy Delight, Designer Series Paper, DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I LOVE this paper!  It is so pretty and really doesn’t need much more added to it.  I shared these quick and easy cards with those who qualified for the Sale-A-Bration Celebration party this past month.  They were each given 4 4″ x 5 1/4″ pieces of Designer Series Paper, 2 sheets of solid color card stock coordinating with the paper and 1 sheet of Whisper White card stock to make their own versions.

For this set, Calypso Coral is the base for the card stock.  On two of the card Tranquil Tide is used as a mat behind the sentiment.  Given the prettiness of the paper, the other purpose was to showcase larger sentiments.  The Happy Birthday is a single stamp in the catalog.  Thanks Kindly is from One Big Meaning and hello is from  Hello, Friend stamp set.

I also used the coordinating Daisy Delight stamp set on two of the cards.  In both instances, the daisies were stamped in Smoky Slate ink and punched with the coordinating punch.  The centers are circles punched from Tranquil Tide card stock.  A touch of ribbon and linen thread finished off the two outside cards.

Here’s a closer look at a few of the cards:

#loveitchopit, DSP, Delightful Daisy, Happy Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!

#loveitchopit, Hello, Hello Friend, Stampin' Up!, DSP, Delightful Daisy, SU!  I am having quite a bit of fun using up Designer Series Paper – it feels good to use it up!  New papers will be coming out soon – and this is a great time to finish up paper and make room for new!!

I hope this inspires you to #loveitchopit and use that gorgeous patterned paper in your stash!
