Floral Statements

This stamp set is  definitely a Floral Statement and one of my top 10 picks from this year Annual Catalogue.

The stamp set just jumped out at me when I was going through the catalogue and knew it was a must have!

The card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Old Olive.  I stamped the image on Whisper White using Black Archival ink.  I brought out the Watercolor pencils and colored the flowers with Rich Razzleberry and the leaves with Old Olive.   I used a blender pen to spread out the color and finished the card front with some sequins from the Frosted Sequins package.

You can purchase these items at my online store, always open to serve you!   CLICK HERE to enter my store.

Thanks for stopping by and having a fun stamping day!

Touches of Texture in Cracked Glass

Everything old is new again, right?   It’s been sometime since I made a card using the Cracked Glass technique and at our last club class, we decided to use this technique and this is the result.

Stampin’ Up! used to carry a product called Glassy Glaze that you need for this technique but it was discontinued.  We used the UTEE that you can get from your local hobby store to produce the cracked glass effect.

For the cracked technique, we stamped the images on the Whisper White card stock.  Then cover the entire piece with Versamark and then sprinkle the UTEE over it and heat with the heat tool.  While it is still warm, add another layer of UTEE and heat again.  Repeat this process for a total of 3 runs.  Place in the freezer for a few minutes and gently “crack” the image that provided a cracked glass effect.  You can add more texture to your art piece by sponging one of the colors used for the stamped images into the cracked grooves.

We used the new Oh My Stars embossing folder for the background layer.  The stamp set is Touches of Texture and the ink colors are Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful stamping day!

Jar of Love

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!

Also co-ordinating with this bundle is the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack and today’s card uses all three of the items.

The card base is Dapper Denim cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at  5 1/2″.  I trimmed down one of the sheets of the Color Theory DSP Paper Stack to 3″ x 4 1/2″ and adhered it to a Basic Black mat cut 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″.

On the DSP I used a mask to sponge the sun with Daffodil Delight classic ink.  The birds are from High Tide stamped with Black Archival ink.  I used the Season Layers thinlits to cut the chair as well as the cool drink of lemonade.  The sentiment is also from Colorful Seasons.  I love the peaceful image of the card.

Lovely Friends Stamp Set and Lovely Laurels Thinlits

A preview of a fantastic bundle coming on June 1 is the Lovely Friends and Lovely Laurels Thinlits.  Do you like pop-ups?   Then you will love this bundle!

Here’s today’s card.

I started with a Whisper White base cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  The Lemon Lime Twist layer is cut 5″ x 3 3/4″ and the Whisper White focal layer is cut 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″.  I inked up the large sentiment with Lemon Lime Twist classic ink and then tapped the Tranquil Tide classic ink stamp pad on an angle over the sentiment randomly.

The flowers are stamped in Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight and the leaves are cut out with one of the thinlits from the Lovely Laurels Thinlits in Old Olive.  I added some Wink of Stella over the flowers and finished them with a pearl.

The Lovely Laurels Thinlits have these pop up pieces to make a laurel wreath and banners.  I cut out the laurel with Lemon Lime Twist card stock and the banner with Tranquil Tide card stock.  There is also another sentiment banner thinlit and after stamping the sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist card stock using Tranquil Tide classic ink, I ran it through the Big Shot.

Here’s a closer view of the inside of the card.The Lovely Friends bundle, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide card stock and classic ink pads will all be available on June 1.   But before it starts, don’t forget to the retiring products will be leaving on May 31!

Birthday Wishes for Mojo Monday

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.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamp Sets:  Party Wishes (retired)
  • Paper:  Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, Crumb Cake, Birthday Memories DSP (available June 1)
  • Ink:  Sweet Sugarplum
  • Accessories:  Birthday Friends Framelits (available June 1 in a bundle with the Birthday Delivery stamp set), Oval Layering Framelits, 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes, Stampin’ Dimensionals

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.

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.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
