Falling Flowers

Hi!  Back today with a set of cards I made featuring the retiring Falling Flowers, coordinating dies, and the retiring In Colors 2017-2019.

Falling Flowers, In Colors 2017-2019, Stampin' Up!, Thank You

I just love these colors paired with Gray Granite.  I think Gray Granite is my new favorite Neutral color.  I’ve used it so much lately.  For today’s cards, I used the retiring In Color 2017-2019 collection – Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig.  I tried to add Lemon Lime for the leaves, but really didn’t like it – so I switched to staying with just the one In Color on each card as my pop of color on Gray Granite.

The flowers are all embossed in Clear Embossing powder on Whisper White Card stock.  For the large flower, I first colored them by picked up ink with the Aqua Painter and watercoloring.  Then I went over each of the flowers using a brayer and the same ink color – this allowed for a lighter shade of the ink on the outside of the flowers.  For the medium sized flower, I brayered ink on first, then used a clean AquaPainter to remove some of the ink.  In this way, I have a darker outside to a lighter petal color.  For the smallest flowers, I colored with the marker then did a quick brayer over each.

Here is a closer view of the Tranquil Tide card:

Falling Flowers, Thank You, Thankful Thoughts, In Color 2017-2019, Stampin' Up!

I love how you can obtain different looks and shades using one ink pad.

To finish off the card, I stamped the leaves in Gray Granite in the top left.  I also used the Gray Granite marker and flecked each card.

The sentiment is stamped in the same In Color Ink used in the flowers on Gray Granite card stock then punched with the Classic Label punch.  This is layered on a Classic Label punch out of the same In Color that is cut in half.  The small flowers and the sentiment are attached using dimensionals.

I am sad to see this stamp set and die set leaving -these flowers are so pretty.  If you don’t have them yet, hurry before the are gone for good!  Just click on the product below to go to my on-line store and place your order.  Don’t forget to get your re-inker and card stock for those retiring colors as well!

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!

Thank You, Animal Outing, Giraffe, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This is the second card I featured in last week’s Facebook Live Demonstration featuring the Animal Outing bundle.  For this card, I created a frame by using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares.

The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive ink.

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.

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!

Go For Greece Training Group Blog Hop

Hi! Today I am playing along in the Go For Greece Training Group Blog Hop!  I joined this group this year to work on building my business and earn a trip to GREECE!!  I still have a long way to go to earn the trip, but through sales, recruiting and team building, I am making some head way.

For today’s card, I am showcasing the Eclectic Expressions Sale-A-Bration stamp set.

Dragonfly, Thank You, Circles, Eclectic Expressions, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2018SAB

I just LOVE this card – from the color combination to the layout – it is one of my favorites that I created for last Friday’s Sale-A-Bration Gone Wild class.  For colors, I paired Fresh Fig, Rose Red and Smoky Slate.  The stamps in this set are so versatile and can be used for all kinds of cards for young ones, old ones, males and females.  I great set to have in your collection!

The stamped panel measures 3 3/4″ x 5″ and is layered on a Fresh Fig card stock layer measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The base is Smoky Slate, measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.

The Dragonfly is die-cut using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets from Basic Black card stock.  He is then covered in Clear Wink of Stella for a sparkly look.  Here is close up of him:

Dragonfly, Eclectic Expressions, Glitter, Thank You, 2018SAB, Stampin' Up!, SU

So pretty!!! The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and the end is punched with the Triple Banner punch.  This is layered on a piece of Fresh Fig card stock also punched with the Triple Banner Punch.  I found it easier to punch my Whisper White sentiment panel first and then use that as a guide for punching the Fresh Fig layer.
