Happy Celebrations Birthday

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.

My card starts off with Emerald Envy cardstock as the base.  I used one of the Happy images from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and stamped it all along the front of the card in Emerald Envy ink.

I layered a pattern from the Party Animal DSP over some Whisper White cardstock and then wrapped some Emerald Envy Taffeta ribbon around it twice.

I stamped the “splotch” image from the Happy Celebrations stamp set in Crumb Cake (stamping off first) on some Whisper White cardstock.  Over that I stamped the happy sentiment in Emerald Envy ink.  I trimmed it down and mounted it on Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment in Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock and trimmed it down before adhering it to the card.

Enjoy!

SOON TO BE RETIRING 2015-2017 IN-COLORS

Honestly I’m in complete denial that we’re even talking about retiring colors, but as only a good demonstrator would do, I feel I need to give you plenty of time to mourn, eh, I mean, stock up on these colors before they’re going.  Pretty soon these five amazing colors will be discontinued (sniff, sniff).  Sale-a-bration is the perfect time to stock up on them – while you still can.

Best. Guy. Ever.

I loved the colors at the Can You Case It? challenge this week.

Masculine cards.  <Face in hand>  I have a love-hate relationship with them.
No bells or whistles and yet still fun and creative.

A little plug – If you’re in the Upstate New York area, I’ll be having a masculine make & take party on June 8th.  I’d love to have you join me!

Today’s card I kept really simple.  I went back and forth with whether to add more to the card, but at the end of the day, I left it clean and simple.

My card starts with Night of Navy cardstock as its base.

I then cut out a number of stars using the Stars Framelits and Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, and Copper Foil cardstock.

The sentiment comes from the Suite Sentiments stamp set which I stamped in Night of Navy ink and then fussy cut out and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

That’s The Tag

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge over at Paper Craft Crew and Fab Friday.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock which I layered with a panel of Mint Macaron Cardstock.  I cut a strip from the sunshine pattern from the Tasty Treats DSP and adhered it to the left side of the card, covering the seam with a strip of Burlap Ribbon.

I created my tag using the That’s The Tag Bundle and Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral ink.  I cut it out and adhered it by tying a bow around the burlap ribbon through the hole in the tag.

I cut out two banners using So Saffron and Peekaboo Peach cardstock and adhered them underneath the burlap.  The tag didn’t seem to be laying flat so I put two Stampin’ Dimensionals underneath it so it lay against the card.  I added a few So Saffron Enamel Dots to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Any Occasion – It’s a Girl Card

Today’s card is inspired by challenges over at TGIF and Freshly Made Sketches.

I used Smoky Slate cardstock to start off my card which I layered with Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut out two banners, one slightly bigger in Pink Pirouette cardstock and the other using So Saffron cardstock.

I then cut a panel using a pattern from the A Little Foxy DSP and layered a larger Whisper White panel over that.  I stamped the bunny and chick images from the Basket Bunch stamp set first in Memento Black ink.  I then colored them in using a Blender Pen and So Saffron, Smoky Slate, and Pink Pirouette ink.

(Because I stamped the bunny slightly higher than the chicks, I added a shadow underneath them so the bunny looked like he was jumping.)

Next I took the Any Occasion stamp set and created the banner using Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette ink.

Enjoy!

Sweet Strawberries

Today’s card inspiration was the Global Design Project Challenge this week.

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock which I layered with Whisper White cardstock.  I took a small strip of Real Red cartstock and dry embossed it using the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I covered the seam with a Real Red Bow from the Sending Love Ribbon.

I used the Cool Treats stamp set to stamp my strawberries in Real Red, Memento Black, and Garden Green ink all behind where my sentiment was going to go.

I then created my sentiment using Memento Black and Real Red ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Enjoy!
