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!

Dragonfly Dreams Extension

Today’s card is an extended card using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Open up the card and you have dragonflies flying up the card.

The card base is Pool Party.  You will need two pieces of the card stock cut 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  The Whisper White piece is cut 3 3/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5″ and 10″.  Fold on score lines and add the images inside.  I cut the dragonflies in Island Indigo and stamped the background with Pool Party.

Place the folded card with the 1″ strip on the top facing.  Adhere the larger portion to a piece of the Pool Party card stock.  Add adhesive to the 1″ strip and position the other piece of Pool Party on top, lining it up with the other piece.

I decorated the front of the card with a piece of the Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack.  Add some Whisper White twine and then adhere to the front of the card.  Cut out a circle using the Stitched Shapes framelits.   I stamped the dragonfly onto a piece of Vellum using Island Indigo classic ink and cut out with the framelit.  This piece was layered onto another dragonfly cut with Pool Party card stock.  Adhere to the stitched circle framelit with dimensionals.  Pop up the circle on the front of the card with dimensionals and finish off the card with some rhinestones.

Supplies:

  • Stamps:  Dragonfly Dreams
  • Paper:  Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Vellum, Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack

Santa’s Sleigh

Santa’s Sleigh is a carry over stamp set from last year’s Holiday catalogue and I was so happy that it is available as I really didn’t get a chance to make too many cards with it last year but hope to do so this year.

We made this card at my Christmas in August class this past weekend using the set and I love how it turned out with the use of Tranquil Tide and the Delightful Daisy DSP.

We used the Basket Weave technique for the detailed side fold.  The reindeer were cut using the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.  As I turned the glimmer paper face down on the cutting pad, they are facing left rather than to the left.

We  inked up the wreath stamp with Versamark and then with Tranquil Tide and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  As long as you use your Versamark with the color you wish to have embossed, there is no need to purchase the colored embossing powder.  The Versamark creates the stickiness to allow the embossing and simply use clear embossing powder to heat set.  They were then cut out with the co-ordinating thinlits.

The trees and bows were all cut out with the co-ordinating framelits from the Santa Sleigh’s Thinlits  Finally we created some snow on a strip of Whisper White card stock and used the Fine Tip Glue pen to add some adhesive and then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.

Thanks for stopping by today 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

Beautiful You in Pop of Pink

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.

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!

Whole Lot of Lovely

I couldn’t resist this beautiful Whole Lot of Lovey Designer Series Paper pack when I saw the sheet with the black background and beautiful Tangerine Tango  flowers.  This is my share for today.

The paper just pops paired with Pool Party mats and the Tangerine Tango butterfly cut with the medium butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits.  I added some Enamel Glitter Dots to the butterfly.

The sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet, a set that I haven’t fully used but anxious to make some cards with it.
