Keeping It Simple Friday

Hi!  Today I have a quick and simple card for you – because sometimes, that is just what we need.  Thinking of You, Rooted in Nature, Fall, Stampin' Up!, SU!Simple doesn’t have to mean ugly.  I love the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper pack – such gorgeous colors!  I am not sure I would have thought to do leaves in Blackberry Bliss and Petal Pink – but this paper is just so pretty!   As I said, I kept it simple by just adding a sentiment, a little baker’s wine and a leaf embellishment.    Pretty straightforward and done in less than 10 minutes.

What do you think?  Do you like quick and easy?  With some of our Designer Series Paper you don’t need more than a sentiment and a little embellishing.

We are winding down our two promotions – only 2 weeks left – to get the Blended Seasons Bundle and earn a Bonus Day’s Coupon!  Shop my on-line store today to get both!   Please use Hostess Code XVQXXWVU for orders under $150 (prior to S/H and tax).   There is no limit to the number of Bonus Day coupons you can earn!  Every $50 (prior to S/H and tax) earns you 1 coupon!!  Coupons can be redeemed in September!

A Lemon For Teacher?

Hi!  Today I am playing along in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights!  Our theme this month is Teachers!   If you like my card, I’d love your vote!  You can vote here  and then click on the heart in the upper right corner of my card.

Ok – so here’s my card:

Teachers, Apples, Lemon Zest, Stampin' Up!, SU!

School starts at the end of this month for my kids, so now is a good time be thinking of back-to-school cards and gifts.

I didn’t really have an apple set or anything else teacher related – so I turned my lemons into apples!  That’s right – I stamped the lemon from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Real Red ink, punched with the Lemon Builder Punch and then trimmed top and bottom to make an apple.  I added a stem using a scrap of Early Espresso card stock.  The leaves are stamped in Old Olive.  What do you think?  Pretty clever?

I added a Welcome sentiment using the Banners For You stamp set and the Duo Banner punch.

The apples are attached to a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Tropical Escape Paper Stack that measures 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.   This is mounted on Early Espresso Card Stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The base is Old Olive Card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ – scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

Make sure you check out all the other demonstrators for more fun Teacher themed projects!

You’ll find all the supplies to make this card in my on-line store.

Don’t forget it is Bonus Days time and each $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) you spend this month, earns you a $5 coupon to use in September.

Mountain View

Hi!  How are you today?  Sorry I didn’t get to post the other day – I’ve been trying to get better about posting 3-4 times a week – and that didn’t happen.   But, I am back today with a card featuring the Waterfront stamp set.

Hello, Just Because, Waterfront, Stampin' Up!, SU!This is the card I featured at the Catalog Kick-off back in June to showcase the Stamparatus tool.  This tool makes it so easy to create scenes such as this one – and to mass produce them as well.  The mountains are stamped in Soft Suede, the water in Balmy Blue, the trees in Old Olive and the sun in So Saffron.  The Sentiment is from the Varied Vases stamp set and is stamped in Soft Suede ink.

The mountain scene is stamped on a piece of Whisper White Card stock that measures 3 3/4 x 5″.  This is mounted on a piece of Soft Suede card stock that measures 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.  The base of the card is thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″ – scored at 5 1/2″ and folded on the score line.

These products can be found in my on-line store here.

Hostess Code until August 15 is W6P6Y3C6

This card does have some sentimental value to me as well as growing up my family would spend a week at a lake in the summer and sometimes I’d get to see a view similar to this.

This coming week I’ll be showcasing a few cards featuring the new Blended Seasons bundle that is available for purchase for August only.  Stay tuned!

Dandelion Wishes

Hi!  I’ve got a quick and easy card for your Saturday morning featuring the Dandelion Wishes set.

Smiles, Friendship, Dandelion Wishes, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Masking

The background is sponged with Balmy Blue ink.  I created a mask from a piece of the card board that comes in the Designer Series Paper Packs the same size as my front panel (3 3/4 x 5″) and cut a rectangle from the middle of it to create the mask.   After sponging, I stamped the single Dandelion from Dandelion Wishes in Crumb Cake ink.  The sentiment is from the You Lift Me Up stamp set.

The Whisper White panel is layer on Early Espresso card stock that measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8″.  The base is Balmy Blue card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.  Easy enough card to mass produce and you can just swap out the sentiment for a Get Well Card, Thinking of You, Thank You or Birthday.

I also did a monochromatic version:

Smiles, Dandelion Wishes, You Lift Me Up, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Masking

It is fun to come up with quick and easy cards – as sometimes we need that.  Hope you liked today’s version.

Happy 4th!

Hi!  A quick card for you today to celebrate the 4th of July!

4th of July, Fireworks, Dandelion Wishes, Stampin' Up, SU!, 2018-20 In Colors

This card is made using two of the new 2018-2020 In Colors!  These debuted in the new catalog introduced on June 1.  Say hello to Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel!

I used the Dandelion Wishes set for my fireworks – love when you can use every day sets for special occasions.  I used the markers to color the fire works so I could get alternating colors.

The word Celebrate is die cut using the Celebrate You thinlets in both Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel and layered on top of each other.  I did use Clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to the word Celebrate:

July 4th, Fireworks, Celebrate, Dandelion Wishes, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2018-20 In Colors

I love how this card turned out!  You could easily change up the colors and use this design to celebrate any occasion.

Wishing you all a fun-filled and safe 4th of July!

Thanks for stopping by!
