Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends wherever you may reside!
I am very thankful for an early birthday present that I received yesterday that enabled me to make today’s card to share with you.
OMG, thank you to my DD, Alannah, who gifted me with the Large Letters framelits. Of course, I just had to do a card using the eclipse technique that is so popular right now.
The card uses the Blooms and Wishes stamp set and the color palette is Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Currey and Old Olive. The card base Cajun Craze. The focal panel is Whisper White cut 3 3/4″ x 5″ and the mat of Old Olive is 1/8″ larger on all sides.
After stamping the flowers and leaves I stamped the sentiment from Daisy Delight in Cajun Craze classic ink and then cut out the letters with the Large Letters framelits. The letters are raised with Stampin’ Up! foam tape.
Thank you for stopping by on this beautiful Thanksgiving Day here in Metro Vancouver and happy stamping!
Here’s a card that we recently made at one of my Christmas card classes.
It started out with Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper but ended up with the Silver glimmer paper as the contrast with the white is more defined and after the image was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Silver embossing powder, it made “co-ordinated” much better with the Silver glimmer paper.
Enjoy your World Card Making Day events! Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
Beautiful You in a Pop of Pink! I used the retired Pop of Pink Specialty Designers Series Paper for this card as I love the contrast of Melon Mambo with the Black.
I used the brush stamp from Beautiful You for the background in Melon Mambo and stamped her image with Black Archival ink. The focal image is cut with the Layering Oval framelits and popped up on a Melon Mambo oval and finally on a black Stitched Shapes framelit.
This Birthday Delivery stamp set has so many adorable images and this is one of the sweetest.
She’s so cute with the surprise package behind her. I started with the Lemon Lime Twist card stock and layered a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ on the top and cut a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist Fresh Florals DSP cut 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ for the bottom.
The image is stamped with Black Archival ink and color added with a Blender pen. I cut her out using the Oval Layering framelits and matted it to a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock cut with the oval Stitched Shapes framelits.
I wrapped a length of retired Whisper White ribbon over the middle of the layer and attached to the card front. I popped up the art image with dimensionals and finished the card with the sentiment stamped with Black Archival ink.
Thanks for stopping by and having a stamping good day!
Jar of Love is a very versatile bundle is retiring as of tomorrow! It is retiring as a bundle (save 10%) but will be returning in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue a la carte. So if this has been on your wish list, you want to get it by tomorrow for the 10% savings!
Today’s card is a sweet clean and simple one using the smallest jar as a vase to hold the flowers.
The card base is Whisper White cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. I used the Oval Layering Framelits to cut out the new Powder Pink layer. I cut out a scalloped oval also from the Oval Layering Framelits and stamped the jar in Smoky Slate and cut it out with the framelit. I stamped the two small flowers in So Saffron and used Daffodil Delight to add the accent pieces. This is a single stamp with the two flowers and the framelit cuts out the two flowers separately – very neat! The larger flower is stamped in Powder Pink and overstamped with the detail stamp using Rich Razzleberry. The leaf stems are stamped with Pear Pizzaz and cut out with the co-ordinating framelits.
I stamped the water in Pool Party and assembled the leaves and flowers over it. The sentiment is also from the set stamped in Smoky Slate and punched out with a retired Oval punch.
ONLY TODAY AND TOMORROW for the current catalogue items – don’t miss out on your favourites and shop my online store HERE.
Thanks for stopping by on a much cooler day today after several scorching hot days! Happy stamping!
It’s been a while that I participated in a Mojo Monday sketch challenge and today’s card uses this week’s sketch. I used the Birthday Delivery bundle and Birthday Memories DSP (all available June 1). I love all the colorful images in the DSP, they are so adorable!
The base card stock is Blushing Bride with a layer of Sweet Sugarplum. I stamped the cupcake image from a retired stamp set, Party Wishes. The cupcake is inked with Sweet Sugarplum classic ink and stamped in second generation across the card stock.
I cut a piece of Blushing Bride 2 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ to layer over the Crumb Cake card stock cut on a diagonal. It is 2″ wide. I snipped out a piece of the DSP with the girl image and cut it out with the Oval Layers Framelits. It is popped up on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then added some Sweet Sugarplum 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes on the Blushing Bride panel.
Tres Chic! That’s the way I would describe this Beautiful You card. So stylish in her Navy dress. For this card, I used the paper piecing technique.
The card base is Night of Navy card at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. On the Whisper White layer cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ I added a strip of the Floral Boutique DSP cut 2″ x 5″.
I stamped the lady image using Basic Black Archival ink on a piece of Whisper White cut using the square Stitched Shapes Framelits (measures at 2 1/8″x 2 1/8″). For the paper piecing, stamp the image again on a scrap piece of the DSP and fussy cut the dress and hat and adhere it to the stamped image.
Adhere it to a piece of Night of Navy cut with the Layering Squares Framelits (measures 2 5/8″ x 2 5/8″) and then pop it onto the card using dimensionals. Complete the card with the sentiment stamped using Night of Navy classic ink.
Stamp Set: Beautiful You
Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Floral Boutique DSP

Who doesn’t like butterflies? Especially a butterfly shaker card?
The base card stock is Blushing Bride with the Fluttering embossed Very Vanilla for the first layer. If you don’t have the Falling In Love DSP from the Occasions Catalogue, it really is a must have with all the beautiful subtle colors in the package. The strip across the centre, layered over a piece of Blushing Bride card stock, is one of the patterns and another pattern is used inside the shaker portion.
I used the Layering Squares Framelits to create the frame for the shaker portion and the sequins are from the Fancy Frost Sequins.
Paper: Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Falling In Love DSP, Acetate Sheets
These cards have been popping up all over so I had to give it a try and this is the result. So sad that Watermelon Wonder will be leaving us next year as it’s a gorgeous color and that was the choice to make this card with the Sweet Cupcake Bundle.
And here’s the inside! The DSP is the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks.
I love this fold and will certainly be making more cards using it. The Sweet Cupcake Bundle is on page 23 of the Annual Catalogue (#142232, $54.75. There are 24 photopolymer stamps and 10 dies (on page 192). The In Color DSP Stack, Card Stock and Ink are on page 169 of the Annual Catalogue.
