So Detailed – Just A Note

My card today was inspired by challenges over at Global Design Project and Hand Stamped Sentiments.

My card today uses Tip Top Taupe as its base.  I cut a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on a slightly bigger panel of Mint Macaron cardstock.

so-detailed-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used the So Detailed Thinlits and cut out the flower detail from Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  I cut out the same image from Mint Macaron cardstock and then using Paper Snips (sort of as a spatula) plucked out the pieces of the flowers that I wanted to color the Sweet Sugarplum in.  I adhered the tiny pieces using a Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

Enjoy!

No Special Reason – Special Reason Card

My card today starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Falling in Love DSP.  I took a smaller panel of another pattern (3.5″ x 5.25″) and matted it on Blushing Bride cardstock to layer over the other pattern.

special-reason-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Next I created a cluster of flowers in the corner of my card.  I used the Special Reason Bundle and Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand cardstock and ink.  For the negative image flower, I cut it out using Very Vanilla cardstock and then fussy cut around the negative lines.  I adhered some of the images using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using Blushing Bride ink.

Balloon Adventures Part 2

Yesterday was our weekly Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  It was a color challenge and I loved it so much, I decided to make two cards.  If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it here.

My card today uses Pool Party cardstock as its base on which I layered a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Before I go any further, I just want to say that one of the reasons why I love today’s card is that it’s very versatile and uses hardly any product at all.  You could switch out the colors to make it more feminine or juvenile.  You could turn the sentiment so it’s not on an angle.  The possibilities are endless.

balloon-adventures-stamp-it-up-with-jaimiNext I created my sentiment by stamping it in Pool Party ink from the Balloon Adventures set.  I then angled it on my card, used a pencil to mark where it needed to be cut, and cut it on the angle.  I added a Pool Party Enamel Heart (to be honest) to cover a smudge.  Isn’t that what embellishments are for anyways?! 🙂

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

I placed the sentiment on my card and drew a line on either side so I knew how low and far up I needed to stamp the balloons.  Using Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder, and Crumb Cake ink, I stamped the various balloons from the Balloon Adventures stamp set in different heights around the card.

I matted the sentiment on a panel of Watermelon Wonder cardstock and adhered it over the balloons.

Enjoy!

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

15726580_10211887781018227_8575702416860075941_n

A little tease…I loved these colors so much that I made two cards.  Come back tomorrow to see the second card I made using this color combination.

My card today uses Pool Party cardstock as its base.  I then cut out a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and used the big framelit from the Balloon Adventures Bundle to cut out the balloon image.  Before adhering it to the Pool Party cardstock, I cut out a piece of the Sending Love Glassine Sheet to put behind it.

balloon-celebrations-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then made my balloons using Whisper White, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder cardstock and the Balloon Pop-Up Framelits.  I adhered the middle balloon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

balloon-celebrations-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I stamped the banner and sentiment in Watermelon Wonder Ink using the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly I cut out a bow in Whisper White cardstock and adhered it over the cut out bow.

Enjoy!

Tasty Trucks – Taco Card

I am embracing the fun, taco lovin’ self deep down inside all of us for my card today.

I used Peekaboo Peach as my base on which I stamped the taco image from the Tasty Trucks stamp set in Peekaboo Peach in a diagonal pattern.

Side note:  I originally was just going to stamp the tacos around the truck, and, well, I got a little carried away with the tacos.

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

I stamped the truck using Archival Black ink and then colored it in using the Watercolor Pencils (Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, and Calypso Coral) and used a blender pen to smooth out the coloring.  I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay and then fussy cut the truck out.

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

I cut out a 2″ panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock and a 1-1/2″ panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and used the Triple Banner Punch to trim the ends.  I wrapped a Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twine bow around the Rich Razzleberry.  I adhered the truck to the banners using Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the tails of the bow would fall underneath it.

Enjoy!

Any Occasion – Thank You

I’ve recently started redecorating our living and dining room.  Before they had dark wood with lots of color on the walls.

I’ve decided to embrace a completely different look and am going with neutrals with pops of subtle color.

So for my card today, I thought I’d continue my new found love for neutrals.

I started off with Thick Whisper White as my card base which I dry embossed using the Polka Dot embossing folder.

any-occasion-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out a strip of Silver Foil Sheet and a smaller strip of Smoky Slate cardstock and then layered a piece of Silver Ribbon across them.

any-occasion-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I cut out a star using the Stars Framelits and then heat embossed in white embossing powder the sentiment from the Any Occasion Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration item – free with $50 purchase) and adhered it using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I cut out a smaller star from the Silver Foil Sheet and used a White Mini Paper Clip to attach it to the bigger star.

Enjoy!
