Blooms and Wishes

Last year I bought several packages of the Blooms and Bliss designer series paper as I loved the colors but the co-ordinating stamp set did not appeal to me.  It wasn’t until a few months ago that I looked at it again in this year’s AC and felt I needed it and promptly picked it up.

I used the stamp set for this project.

You can add a message on the back.

 Thanks for stopping by today as time for the eclipse is quickly approaching!

Lovely as a Tree

Who does not have the Lovely as a Tree set?  I believe it must be the longest current stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.  I can never grow tired of using it and at my downline meeting today, I am sharing with my team the split negative technique.

This is one of the cards we’ll be making.

This was a technique I learned several years ago and I was going through my technique book to come up with something that we haven’t shared and I thought they would enjoy this one.

The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Powder Pink.  The DSP is from the Naturals Designer Series Paper Pack.

Short post today as I get ready for our meeting.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Wood Words Diagonal Card

Do you ever see a card that you like and instantly think of the stamp set you want to use to make it?   Wood Words came to mind when I saw a card on Pinterest (Lisa C) that I wanted to make and here’s the result.

You know that I just love black and white and this was my go to color combo to try this card.  The card base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  I cut another piece of Black card stock 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ to cut out the a section to form the diagonal cut.

I first rubbed the Embossing Buddy over the area that I was going to stamp .  I next used the floral stamp from Wood Words and stamped with White Craft ink across the opening and then sprinkled some White embossing powder over the stamped images and heat embossed it.  The sentiment is stamped with White Craft ink and embossed with White Embossing powder.  I positioned the corners onto the front and cut some strips of Powder Pink card stock to provide the pink borders.

I next added the foam strips around the triangle pieces and adhered to the front of the card.  I completed the card with a triple bow using the Pink Pirouette seam binding ribbon.

You can purchase the supplies to make this card at my online store HERE.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps:  Wood Words
  • Paper:  Basic Black, Powder Pink
  • Ink:  White Craft
  • Accessories:  White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Pink Pirouette Seam Binding, Foam Strips

Bright Wishes

Two things that I have been wanting to do but hadn’t found the time but made an effort today to do both and finally did it.

I wanted to make a card using the Bright Wishes stamp set and also make a card using the  Polished Stone technique, one of my all time favourite techniques.  I did both and this is the result!


I started with the focal panel first cutting the Glossy White card stock to 3 3/4″ x 5″. I added some Wild Wasabi and Old Olive ink refill on a soaked cotton ball and dabbed it to the lower portion of the panel as I wanted to create a grassy image. I then soaked another cotton ball with alcohol and added Pool Party and Marina Mist ink refill and dabbed it on the upper portion of the panel to create the sky. I then added some Gold Mixative ink refill to a soaked cotton ball and lightly dabbed it on the panel randomly.

I inked up the image with Black Archival ink and stamped onto the panel and added the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous to the bottom of the panel. I then adhered it to a piece of 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ Black card stock and then onto the card base of Marina Mist cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.

Thanks for stopping by on another beautiful day and happy stamping!

Endless Thanks Masculine Card

Sometimes you need a quick CAS masculine card and this card was put together so fast.

I used Sahara Sand for the card base and the retired Scenic Scenery DSP pack.  It was such a great background pack and am very happy I still have some to make some quick cards.  I used the Banner Triple punch to layer the two banners and the Circle Layering framelits for the sentiment piece.  I stamped the sentiment with Black Archival ink.   So quick!

I pulled out the Scallop Topper punch and made this card with the Lemon Zest Bundle that comes with the Lemon Zest stamp set and Lemon Builder Punch.


This is such a delightful set with some very cute sentiments. We made some cards at my Open House and hadn’t used it since so it was time for another card.   The card base is Daffodil Delight, with Whisper White mat and the retired Fruit Stand DSP.

I stamped two lemons with Daffodil Delight classic ink on Whisper White card stock and two leaves with Pear Pizzazz classic ink on Whisper White card stock and punched them out with the Lemon Builder punch.  They are adhered to the side panel with Tombow liquid glue and dimensionals.

You punch both sides of the card stock with the Scallop Topper punch and trim the ends to create this card.  I love the new 1/4″ Double-Stitched Daffodil Delight ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today – another beautiful sunny day – happy stamping!

Oh So Eclectic

The Naturally Eclectic Suite  on pages 132 – 133 of the Annual Catalogue is so pretty.  I love the colors that are shown from the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon – Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, Berry and Emerald Envy to the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and the Naturally Eclictic Card Overlays!  Oh, and I haven’t mentioned the Naturally Eclectic DSP!

While the images are very bright, I went the opposite route for my card share today – subtle tones.

I chose Peekaboo Peach for the card base and one of the soft sheets of the DSP to build my card.  A panel of the DSP is layered with one last year’s doilies then a panel of Whisper White stamped with the petal image In Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach and Soft Sky.   I stamped off the Peach and Pear Pizzazz and used the Soft Sky at full strength as it is a very light color.  I then stamped the flower image using Berry Burst.   I used Soft Sky to stamp the background with one of the little flower centres available in the stamp set.

The stamped image is popped up with dimensionals and the sentiment is also popped up with dimensionals.   Thank you Kathleen for the layout!

Next on my list to do with the set is to cut a mask with the thinlit and use it with some of the embossing paste.  Looking forward to trying that!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy stamping day!

Thanks Floral Statements

There are only two stamps in Floral Statements but I think that they pack such a statement with just those two.

I needed some thank you cards and this is one that I made using the Thanks stamp from the set.  The card base is Pink Pirouette with a mat of Pear Pizzazz.   Each time I use the Black Archival ink I am awestruck with the crispness of the black and always let out a “wow” when I pull the stamp away from the card stock.  I colored the flowers with Pink Pirouette and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz markers and added a few of the retired dots.

When I first started with SU, one of the color combinations that I used a lot was Mossy Meadow and Pretty in Pink and I still think it’s a great combination with today’s shades of pink and green.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful stamping weekend.

Artistically Asian Window Card

A window card is a pretty and easy card to make and today’s card uses the Artistically Asian stamp set.

You only need two pieces of card stock cut 4 1/4″ x 5″ and score at 1/2″, 1″, 4 1/2″ and 5″ on both pieces.  I stamped the bamboo image using Versamark on the Peekaboo Peach card stock piece to give it a subtle background.

Use the 2 1/2″ Circle punch and centre it on the Peekabook Peach piece and put the card stock right to the bottom of the circle.  The reason for putting right to the edge of the circle is that I wanted to stamp the sentiment towards the bottom.  (You could just centre the punch in the centre of the card stock).

I flipped the piece over so that there was more space at the bottom of the card stock to stamp the sentiment.

Position the Peach card stock over the Whisper White card stock and gently mark the outer rim of the circle to give you a visual to stamp your image.   After stamping the image, erase the pencil marks.

I inked up the image with Peekaboo Peach and Old Olive markers and huffed on it before stamping on the card stock.  The sentiment is stamped with Old Olive classic ink and pearls were added to complete the card.

Fold on the score marks on both pieces of card stock and adhere the edges with Tear and Tape.  Bend the score lines to create a window effect.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!

Graceful Garden Basket Weave – Polished Stone

At our stamping event, my friend, Janet, demonstrated two fantastic cards.  For the first one she showed us the basket weave technique and used the Graceful Garden stamp set and co-ordinating Petal Garden Designers Series Paper Stack.

With the return of the Glossy White card stock, Janet’s second card featured the polished stone technique.  The card base is Fresh Fig.  The reinkers she used to create the polished stone effect was Pink Pirouette and Fresh Fig with the gold metallic.   She finished the card with the dragonfly and a Swirly Scribbles thinlit.

Thanks so much Janet for two wonderful demonstrations!

We had a lot of mom and daughter attendees and here they are.

and Maxine, one of my team members.

Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful day before the long Canada Day weekend.  Happy stamping!
