Butterfly Notes

Hi!  How are you today?  Hope you are doing well!  Today I have a very quick card for you featuring our Note Cards and Envelopes:

Thanks, Note Cards, Butterflies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019Occasions

I used the Stamparatus to align the butterfly from Butterfly Gala and stamped in StaZon Jet Black ink.  They are then colored with Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam markers for a subtle look.  To add interest to the card, I used the Simply Scored board to score 3 lines about 3/4″ from the bottom.   The sentiment is from Beauty Abounds and also stamped in StaZon Jet Black ink.

While this is a very quick and simple card, it is still very pretty and the note card size – perfect for a quick thank you.  If you haven’t tried our Note Cards and Envelopes – perhaps this will inspire you to do so.

Hello, Hello, Hello!

Hi!  Had a little fun yesterday playing with the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set and heat embossing!

Calligraphy Essentials, Hello, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Heat Emboss

I stamped the Hello from in Versamark on a piece of Vellum Cardstock, sprinkled White Embossing Powder and heat set with the heat tool.  I then flipped the vellum over, and sponged Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay ink on the back.   A fun and quick technique.

The vellum is mounted on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  The base is Poppy Parade and I used a scrap of Designers Series Paper from the Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Pack.  The rhinestones are colored with Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends.

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!

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.

Don’t forget, we are winding down to the end of Sale-A-Bration – there are only a few weeks left to get your FREE products with a $50 purchase.  Just click on a product below to go to my online store and shop!

Yes or No?

Hi! I have a card to share with you that is a little out of the norm.  I did share how I made it on a recent Facebook Live and some liked it and some maybe didn’t.

I do like the color combination of Blueberry Bushel and Granny Apple Green – just not sure Crumb Cake is the best color for the background.

This card features the Incredible Like You stamp set.  Do you love the detail in the flower?  While this is a 2-Step Stamping set – it is also a DistINKtive stamp set which allows for one ink color to take on different shades as seen in the leaves and main flower above.  I LOVE this look!

To give the card a little more flair, I added a touch of white at the base of the small flowers using the Chalk Marker.

So, what do you think?  Like it? Yes or no?  Be honest – (but kind, please).

I’ll have a more traditional card using this set a little later in the week.

Fly Fishing Anyone?

Hi! Today I have another card featuring the Best Catch bundle from the Occasions Catalog.

Masculine, Fishing, Best Catch, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Love how this card turned out – and it is a pocket card – so you can tuck a little gift card or your note right there.

For this card, I sponged Balmy Blue and So Saffron ink on pieces of Designer Series Paper from the Wood Textures pack.  The fisherman is stamped  in StazOn Jet Black ink.   The base of the card is Balmy Blue.  A little burlap ribbon to finish it off.

For the base, start with a piece of Balmy Blue measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ edge.  Slide the score line to the 2″ mark and cut (this allows you to create the pocket).  From the same sheet of Designer Series Paper, cut one piece 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ and another 5 1/4″ x 1 3/4″.  Save a scrap for the sentiment.  On the larger piece, sponge Balmy Blue on the bottom and So Saffron on the top to create the water and sunset.  Then stamp the fisherman.  On the smaller piece, sponge Balmy Blue on the top and Old Olive on the bottom (hard to see in this picture given the ribbon).  Use the envelope punch board to round all the corners.  Attach the top piece to the Balmy Blue base.  Use Tear & Tape on just the two sides of the lower flap and adhere to make the pocket.  Wrap the ribbon around the Designer Series Paper before attaching to the front of the pocket.  Add your sentiment and done!

Broadway Bound Birthday

Hi!  A few quick cards with the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper for you today:

Birthday, Broadway Bound, Around the Corner, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #simplestamping

This is a very quick card and is for Stampin’ Up!’s #simplestamping featuring Birthday cards.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Broadway Bound Designer Series Pack and features gold foil elements on the sheets.  The stamp is from the set Around the Corner – for something a little different.

The Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 2 1/2″ is matted to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock measuring 4 1/8″ x 2 5/8″.

The base is our Thick Whisper White.

Here is another card using a different piece from the Broadway Bound pack:

Broadway Bound, Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #simplestamping

So many different looks you can achieve with this pack of paper!  For this one, I went with the Lovely Lipstick ink for the sentiment which is from Perennial Birthday.   A few added pieces behind the sentiment to dress up the card using a Triple Banner Punch.

If you haven’t checked out the Broadway Bound suite, maybe this will give you inspiration to try it!

The One That Got Away?

Hi!  Today I am sharing the card I made during last week’s Facebook Live using the Best Catch bundle in the Occasions Catalog.

Fishing, Masculine, Best Catch, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Birthday

I am so happy with how the fish turned out.  I used an aqua painter and Old Olive and Crushed Curry ink to color the fish and then applied liquid glue using the Fine Tip Glue Pen to cover him. – here’s a better view:

Best Catch, Fishing, Masculine, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For the background on the card, I stamped the Crackle Paint Stamp set in Old Olive ink on Whisper White.  The cattails were die cut from the coordinating framelits from Old Olive Cardstock.  The Rectangle frame uses the new Stitched Rectangle Framelits in the Occasions Catalog as well.  I just layered two together and ran through the Big Shot once to make the frame.  Very easy and I love the stitching on it!  The sentiment is from the Piece Of Cake stamp set.

Here is the video – it is the second card:

What do you think?  Do you have fishermen on your friends and family list?  This would be a great bundle to use for birthday, Father’s Day or even Thank You!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!
