Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love

My card today was inspired by challenges at Global Design Project and Stamp, Ink, Paper (although loosely as I’m just now seeing the “add a metallic”).

 My card today starts off with Island Indigo cardstock.  I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and matted it on Berry Burst cardstock.  I used the Lemon Lime ink pad and an Aqua Painter to add color behind the jar.

I created my jar using the Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating Everyday Jars framelits.  I stamped the outline of the jar in Memento Black and the stems in Island Indigo ink.  I first stamped the flowers in Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist ink and then stamped the highlight in White Craft ink.

I adhered a Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon around the top of the jar and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card.  I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Badges & Banners

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

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Fresh Florals DSP and adhered it on the card

I took a banner of Watercolor Paper and stamped the birdcage image from the Badges & Banners stamp set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I then took an Aqua Painter and wet the paper and added Berry Burst ink to it.  In order to dry it faster, I used the Heat Tool to dry the paper which made the ink run, which I actually really liked.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Berry Burst cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and set it with the heat tool.  I used the Duet Banner punch to cut it out.  Lastly, I matted the banner on a bigger Berry Burst banner.

Enjoy!

June 2017 Paper Pumpkin

Do you have a child that is creative?
Does it seem overwhelming to start a project with them?
Want to beat the summer’s “I’m bored”?

Or maybe you yourself love to be creative, but don’t know where to start?
Or maybe you don’t want to invest in all the crafting product, but would still like to create?

Paper Pumpkin to the rescue!

My daughter had a friend over this morning and I thought it would be great for them to put together June’s Paper Pumpkin.  They made the six cards and four gift bags on their own (with a little guidance).  I plan on filling the bags with watermelon sour candy and giving them to their teachers, as tomorrow is their last day of school!!

Here we come summer!

Are the projects perfectly made?  No.  But they’re made with lots of love and I believe their teachers are going to love them!

The four gift bags easily come together and will hold the watermelon sours as a little something to say thanks to their teachers.

The six cards were my favorite part.  I love the bright colors and summer-y patterns.  Teaching kids to send/give thank you cards is something I think is so important and definitely their teachers deserve it!

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You

Today’s card starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I dry embossed it using the beautiful new Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

I then took a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped in Memento Black ink the house from the At Home With You stamp set.  I cut it out using the coordinating At Home Framelits.  I stamped the wreath in Memento Black ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored it in using Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride, and Wild Wasabi markers from the Subtles Stampin Write Markers.

I then cut a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Wisteria Wonder ink to the right of it.  I added a few pearls for some detail.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was loosely based on this week’s challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch!

Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest Birthday

My card today was inspired by challenges at Freshly Made SketchesTGIF Challenges! (loosely, as this isn’t necessarily a masculine card, but a gender-neutral card),  and Color Throwdown this week.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I dry embossed using the new Polka Dot Basics embossing folder.  I then cut out a scalloped circle using the Layering Circles Framelits from the Naturally Eclectic DSP and adhered it to the card.

I created the lemons using the Lemon Zest Bundle.  I stamped the whole lemon and piece of lemon in Lemon Lime Twist ink and cut them out using the coordinating punch and Layering Circles Framelits, cutting the piece of lemon in half.  I stamped the lemon leaves in Crumb Cake ink and used the punch to cut them out.

I added some Pool Party solid baker’s twine over the leaves for a little detail.  (Hard to see from the picture, but) I stamped on Pool Party cardstock the cut lemon image in Versamark ink and then stamped the sentiment over that in Night of Navy ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Coffee Cafe

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge.

I knew from the first time I saw the new Annual Catalog, I wanted the Coffee Café Bundle.  Not only is it super cute and adorable (and I love the colors), but I can see it being used for thank you cards for teachers, cute thank you favors, masculine cards, etc.

My card today starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Coffee Break DSP and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock and adhered it to the card.  I then took a panel of Soft Sky cardstock and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock and adhered that to the card.  (What can I say, I love layers.)

I created my coffee cup using the new Coffee Café Bundle.  I cut the cup itself out using Crumb Cake cardstock and the lid using Whisper White cardstock.  The cup holder I cut using Soft Suede cardstock.  The framelit that cuts it out also embossing it – so cool!  I stamped the sentiment using Soft Suede ink.

Under the cup I cut a piece of Crumb Cake ribbon and tied a bow at the one end using Linen Thread.  I then stamped some coffee beans (Soft Suede ink) and cut them out and placed them around the coffee cup.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Oh So Eclectic

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

My card today starts off with Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on a piece of Gold Foil Sheet.

I then used the Oh So Eclectic Bundle to create my focal point.  I first took the beautiful detailed thinlit in the Eclectic Layers Framelit Dies to cut out the lattice piece in Gold Foil Sheet.  Because the thinlit only cuts out the diamonds, I fussy cut the entire piece out and adhered it to the card.

Using the Oh So Eclectic Bundle, I then stamped the flower (Dapper Denim) and leaves (Tranquil Tide), first stamping off first to get a lighter shade, and then adhered them to the card.

I stamped the sentiment in Dapper Denim ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Then I wound around some Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon and then wrapped the center using Linen Thread.

Enjoy!
