So In Love With You

The colors for my card today were inspired by the Color Challenge over at My Favorite Things this week.

mft_colorchallenge_paintbook_62

My card uses Mint Macaron as its base which I layered with Basic Gray cardstock and then Whisper White cardstock.

I used the So In Love stamp set to create a cluster of images and a variety of inks:  Night of Navy, Mint Macaron, and Bermuda Bay.  I added a few enamel dots around the flowers.

Lastly, I heat embossed using white embossing powder the two sentiments, each in a banner.

Enjoy!

Hey, Chick

I’ve had these silly little chickens/egg since the beginning of Sale-a-bration, not quite sure what to do with them.

So I decided to just dive in and embrace their craziness.

I stamped the four images in Archival Black on watercolor paper.  I used an aqua painter and a slew of inks to color the chickens/egg in (Watermelon Wonder, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Marina Mist, Smoky Slate).

hey-chick-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then cut the images out using the Layering Circle Framelits and overlapped them over each other using some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder and added some Striped Watermelon Wonder Ribbon underneath it.

Enjoy!

When in Doubt – Stamp!

Today’s card is inspired by this week’s challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper.

sip-sketch-challenge-83-800-791x1024

When creating a card, it can be hard to know what colors look good together.  A great help is Stampin Up’s Designer Series Paper.  Today’s colors are inspired from the Tasty Treats  DSP and were my inspiration.

My card uses Pool Party cardstock as its base which I layered Whisper White over Peekaboo which I offset on the Pool party.

happy-celebrations-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used the different shapes from the Happy Stampers stamp set to make a colorful background to my sentiments.  I used inks:  Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder, and Pear Pizzazz.

happy-celebrations-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-upThis card will be sent to my new upline who just signed on under me, so I wanted to use the “When In Doubt: Stamp” from the Suite Sentiments stamp set.  I heat embossed it using white embossing powder on Peekaboo Peach cardstock which I cut out using the smallest circle Stitched Framelit.  I layered it with Crumb Cake cardstock and Watermelon Wonder cardstock (cut out using the Layering Circles Framelits).  I cut out two banners which I adhered behind the circles to make it look like a ribbon.  I then heat embossed the second sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set on Peekaboo Peach cardstock.

Enjoy!

Avant Garden Birthday Card

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

15747338_10211887771377986_7379289071360287579_n

My card today uses the Bermuda Bay as its base which I layered with Whisper White cardstock on Early Espresso cardstock.

avant-garden-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then took the Avant Garden Stamp Set from the Sale-a-bration catalog to create my border on either side of the Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the flower in Peekaboo Peach ink, the petals in Bermuda Bay ink, and the pollen stems in Early Espresso.

avant-garden-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I originally stamped the sentiment right on the Whisper White, but I stamped it crooked, so I stamped it on a separate piece of Whisper White in Bermuda Bay and cut it out and layered it over Early Espresso cardstock.

Enjoy!

Tasty Trucks – Thanks

My card today is a bright and cheerful thank you card using the Tasty Trucks stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  If you use Whisper White as a base to your cards a lot, you definitely need the Thick Whisper White cardstock.  It is more durable and can stand up much better than the regular one.

I layered the Whisper White first with Bermuda Bay, then Calypso Coral, and lastly Melon Mambo cardstock, each one a half inch smaller than the previous.

tasty-trucks-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I next stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner in Melon Mambo ink, as well as the banners behind the truck.

tasty-trucks-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I stamped the Tasty Truck image in Archival Black ink (oil-based, so water doesn’t make it smear).  Then I used the amazing Watercolor Pencils (see below for status) to color it in.  I used Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, and Early Espresso.  I then went over the coloring using a Blender Pen to get a more consistent look.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it over the cardstock.

Enjoy!

Party On – Birthday Card

The inspiration for my card today came from the Freshly Make Sketches challenge this week.

fms-final-271-001

For my card I’m using the Balloon Adventures stamp set and colors in the coordinating Designer Series Paper, Party Animal.

I used Pacific Point cardstock as my base and stamped the swirlies in Pacific Point from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set all over it.

balloon-adventures-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out a panel of Party Animal DSP and layered it with a slightly smaller Whisper White panel.  On the Whisper White I first stamped the bigger sentiment in Pacific Point.  I next stamped the balloons in Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry (the balloon strings as well) using the masking technique.

Lastly I stamped the banner and “Party On” in Pacific Point, fussy cut it out, and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
