A Little More Traditional

Hi!  As promised, today I have a little more traditional color combination using the Incredible Like You stamp set.  Maybe this one will appeal to you more.

Friends, Incredible Like You, #DIstINKtiveStamps, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For these two cards, I used Garden Green and Crushed Curry as my color scheme.  Still love the look of the DistINKtive stamps as it really makes it easy to show the details of the flowers without having to figure out my own color combination.

I did demonstrate how I made the card on the left in this video:

I colored the rhinestones with the Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends to place around the sentiment.  I think it adds a nice touch.

I do like how the “So Glad we Are Friends” card turned out – that I made 20 of them with a different sentiment for my Mother-in-Law to use as she recovers from surgery.  Here they are:

Thank You, Incredible Like You, #DistINKtivestamps, #simplestamping, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

If my Crumb Cake card using this set didn’t inspire you, perhaps these cards will.

If you have other color combinations you’d like to suggest, let me know!  I see myself using this set quite a bit!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Spring

to brighten your day!  I know it isn’t spring yet, but thought maybe today, you could use a little spring.  Not to mention, I LOVE how this turned out!  So cute!!!

Spring, Bunny, Fabled Friends, Painted Seasons DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019SaleABration, #2019Occasions

I love the Sale-A-Bration Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper – so pretty and can be used with so many stamp sets!   For this card, I paired the paper with the bunny from Fable Friends Stamp Set found in the Occasions Catalog.  He is colored using our Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  Just adorable!

I also colored three Rhinestones using the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends for just a touch of bling in the corner.  The base of the card and layers are Poppy Parade.

I have a few little great nieces and nephews and might make a few to send their way for Easter.

Coffee & Friends

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  I had some time this weekend to play a little and came up with this card featuring the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set.

Coffee, Friendship, Coffee Cafe, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I am not a coffee drinker – I prefer tea, but so many of my friends and family are coffee drinkers that I thought it was time to use this set.

The coffee cup and coffee cup rings are stamped in Early Espresso.  I did place the Whisper White layer directly on top of the Crumb Cake card base before stamping the coffee cup rings from the Timeless Textures stamp set so that the rings would carry through to the base.  I then placed a layer of Blueberry Bushel in between the two layers for a bit of a pop of color.

The Coffee Cup and sentiment were stamped using the Stamparatus – such a great tool to use to align stamps and for mass production.  The Sentiment is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.

The coordinating framelits – Coffee Cups were used to die cut the cup and lid.  Dimensionals were used to pop the lid.

A pretty simple card, but so fitting for so many people in my life!

Beauty Abounds

Hi!  Today I have a card featuring the Beauty Abounds stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  This set is so pretty!

Friendship, Beauty Abounds, Butterflies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2019Occasions

I stamped the flourish in StaZOn Jet Black ink along the right hand side as well as along the bottom.  The flowers were colored with Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo while the leaves were colored with Soft Seafoam and Pear Pizzazz.   The butterflies are colored in Flirty Flamingo.

The sentiment is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and punched with the 1 3/4″ circle punch.  This is layered on a 2″ Circle of Pear Pizzazz.   A butterfly element from the Sale-A-Bration catalog  is colored on the edges with a Crumb Cake marker and attached using a glue dot.  These wooden elements are a FREE choice during Sale-A-Bration where a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE product!

The base for the card is Soft Sea Foam and measures 4 1/4″ x 11″ – scored at 5 1/2″.  The mat is Pear Pizzazz and measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The Whisper White panel measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.

Here is a video from my Wednesday Wow Facebook Live:

There are a set of coordinating dies that when purchased with the stamp set as a bundle, saves you 10%!  A great bundle for any crafter!

Wild About You Valentine

Hi!  Today I have another Valentine featuring the Animal Outing Bundle.  Yes, I know, I’ve shared others – but this one is so cute, I couldn’t resist!

Valentine, Animal Outing, Stampin' Up!, SU!

How can you resist these adorable images?  Over the weekend, I had decided to do something with a bunch of projects I had started and never finished.  In the pile were a bunch of rhinos, giraffes and trees.  I believe I had planned on using them for thank you cards, but never got to it.  I also had one of these hearts but in a different color from another project and thought – hmm, I think these pieces would make a cute Valentine.

So, here is my final creation.  In the end, I made 13 of these Valentines – 12 of which I sent to a friend.

The sentiment is also from the Animal Outing stamp set.  I used Stampin’ Blends to color the animals.  The heart die cut is from the Sunshine Wishes framelits set – and something I recently pulled out for the first time.  So nice to finally use products that had been sitting unused!

All in all, I am happy with this card and happy to have used up the pieces I had sitting around.  Feeling very accomplished!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  You will find all the products listed below and in my on-line store.  Don’t forget, we are still Sale-A-Brating and a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure!

Happiness Blooms

Hi! Today I am sharing a card made using the Happiness Blooms suite from the Occasions Catalog.  Love the bold look in this suite.

Birthday, Happiness Blooms, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The flower is stamped in Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover inks.  This is attached to a card from the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Card pack as is the flowered panel behind that.  The card base is one of the cards from the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Cards & Envelopes – and is larger than our normal A2 size cards that I typically make.  The inside of the card is white.   The card is finished with the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

If you haven’t checked out the suite yet in the Occasions Catalog, hopefully this will  entice you!
