Another Swap Card

It’s amazing how when you set your mind to doing something, it gets done so quickly!  This is another swap card I made and this one is a Dutch Door card.


The main card stock is Island Indigo and the layering pieces are the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper.  The square pieces are Mint Macaron and Island Indigo cut with the Layering Squares Framelits.  The sentiment is from Suite Sayings stamped with Island Indigo classic ink and cut out with the Layering Circle Framelits.   The butterfly is punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch also using the Blooms and Bliss DSP and a small pearl completes it.

The sentiment on the inside is from Dragon Dreams.

Artistically Asian Swap Card

I didn’t think I had time to make any swaps for the OnStage event this weekend but I managed to make a few as I know there will be some awesome swaps and didn’t want to miss out on them.

Here’s one of the cards I made using the Artistically Asian stamp set.

One of the difficulties in coming up with something is having a sketch.  Once I have a sketch, it makes the task of coming up with a card so much easier!  I used this sketch from Mojo Monday from a couple of weeks ago.   The card base is Whisper White with Emerald Envy being the accent color along with the 2016 – 2018 In Color DSP.  The image is inked up with Emerald Envy and Peek-a-boo Peach Markers.  The Emerald Envy ribbon ties it all together.

Tasty Trucks

This year’s Sale-A-Bration selections are so awesome and Tasty Trucks is one of the cutest stamp sets in the brochure.

We made some invitation cards for Colin several years ago with a bus on the front that moved across the card front and today’s card reminded me of it so we made this at our recent stamp club meeting.

Pull the ribbon and the truck moves along.

Isn’t it cute?   I used the Sheltering Tree stamp set for the background and just received my High Tide stamp set and added the birds from that  set.

Be sure to come back tomorrow as I have another “moving” card share for you.

Suite Sayings Meets Suite Sentiments

Two stamp sets with “sweet” sayings were used for today’s card.   I had started out using the more colorful side of the Fruit Stand DSP but couldn’t get the colors to work as it seemed too “busy” for me.  And on the reverse side of the piece I was using was this more muted piece that I absolultely love!

The card is a modified Dutch Door cut on a Watermelon Wonder card base.  The top panel is a piece of Flirty Flamingo stamped with the floral image from So In Love using Watermelon Wonder classic ink.

The lower panel is a piece of the DSP.  The sentiment in front is from Suite Sayings.

The sentiment inside is from Suite Sentiments.

Just a quick post today!   Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Stampin’ Up! Year End Closeouts and Bella and Friends Birthday Card

Twenty-one years ago yesterday that I received a very precious birthday present as my grand daughter, Danielle, was born on my birthday!  What a wonderful birthday I had!  This year not so great as I’ve been so sick with a sore throat and laryngitis!  I hope it goes away soon.

I pulled out the Bella and Friends stamp set to make this card for her from her Uncle Colin.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Cupcakes Pop Up

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.

Stampin’ Up! Baby Card and Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder

The Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and co-ordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch is one bundle that you may want to get if you don’t already have it!  Not only does it have the most adorable holiday images but I made this baby card using the bear.

I had to make a baby boy gift basket and they always ask for a card to go with the basket and I thought what a great idea to use the new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Oh my goodness – it is awesome!  When you emboss it, you get this deep 3-D appearance on your card stock.  Can you imagine all the possibilities?

cookie-cutter-christmas-baby-blueThe card base is Soft Sky with a layer of Whisper White and then I cut a piece of Soft Sky 3 3/4″ x 5″.  I spritzed it lightly with water on both sides before running it through the Big Shot.  Because the embossing folder is very thick, you only need one cutting plate for the sandwich to run it through.  I stamped the bear image on a piece of Whisper White card stock using Soft Sky classic ink and then cut it with a circle framelit and layered it onto a scallop circle framelit.  The facial expression is stamped using Basic Black Archival ink and as I had a scrap of Red Glimmer paper on my work desk, I punched out a little heart from the Cookie Cutter Builder punch.  It’s adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Baby Bear stamped with Soft Sky classic ink on a piece of Whisper White which was stamped with one of the banners from Thoughtful Banners and then punched out using the Duet Banner punch.

It’s such a precious card and I love it!

Stampin’ Up! Project Life Hello Lovely

On page 163 of the Annual Catalogue is the Project Life Hello Love Card Collection and Accessory Pack.  The Accessory Pack includes a stamp set that you can use with the cards.  I only just had a chance to open this up and I love it!

The card collection comes with 100 cards!!!   2 each of 50 double sided designed in 3 sizes – 3″ x 4″, 4″ x 4″, 4″ x 6″.   So easy to make into quick cards and here’s a couple I made yesterday – so fast and so beautiful!

For this card, I chose a 4″ x 6″ card, trimmed it down and layered onto a piece of So Saffron and attached to a Basic Black card.  The sentiment is from Tin of Cards stamped in Calypso Coral and a few Calypso Coral dots added to complete the card.

pl-hello-lovely-saffron

I love this next one and again the only thing that was stamped is the sentiment.  I used Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz markers to ink up the image from Suite Sayings, stamped it on Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and layered it onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Punch and popped it up with dimensionals over the Calypso Coral twine.
