Stampin’ Up! Delightfully Detailed – Two Cards

Have you checked out the new Delightfully Detailed Specialty Paper?!!

It’s gorgeous!!!

I used it two different ways to create two Best Wishes cards.

These cards were featured on my Wednesday night Facebook Live Tutorial.  This is a weekly tutorial I do at 7:30 pm EST.

I first created this Soft Sea Foam card….

…and then piggy-backed it with this Gorgeous Grapefruit card.

If you catch my Facebook Live Tutorials live and leave a comment, at the end I draw a name for someone to win that night’s card.

If you ever miss a video, you can always catch them on YouTube.

Here’s this week’s video.  Please note the sound is low until about the 6:00 minute.

Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases – Just a Note

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

My card starts off with Mossy Meadow cardstock which I embossed with the new Subtles Embossing Folder.

I then matted a panel of Petal Pink cardstock on Gold Foil paper.  I stamped the rectangle frame from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Versamark ink and also heat set it in Gold Embossing Powder.

I cut out three flowers from Petal Pink cardstock and three leaves from Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Flourish Thinlits.  I added three pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to each flower.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card GDP144

I’ve been so busy with thank you cards, I’ve sort of neglected birthday cards.

Today’s card came together so easily and yet the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper really steals the show.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took the candle pattern from the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper and matted it on Gold cardstock.

I took the star pattern and cut it in a banner and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I took a Tupperware and mixed a little Gold embossing powder and Black embossing powder.  I stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled the mix of embossing powders on it.  I then heat set it.  The mix of the two colors gives a very cool look – love it!

Before adhering the sentiment down with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I wound behind it some gold and black cord.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing Big Thanks

“Fussy cutting”

It’s a term to describe having to meticulously cut out an image with scissors.

Nowadays we’re spoiled because we have the Big Shot and thinlits and framelits that cut out the images perfectly for us.  But every now and then, you have to go old school and fussy cut.

My card today put my fussy cutting skills to the test.

The new Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper is so fun and really lends itself to creating a fun card with virtually no stamping.

My card today starts off with Call Me Clover cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Animal Expedition DSP and adhered it down the middle of the card.  Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Gray Granite cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Berry Burst cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then cut Mr. Rhino out using the coordinating rhino framelit from the Animal Friends Framelits, but the other images of the branches and birds I fussy cut out and arranged the images on the card front.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lilypad Lake

Happy Monday!!!

How’s your week looking?  I know most don’t like Mondays, but I sort of welcome them.  It’s an opportunity to kick start the week right.

My kiddos are now home for summer vacation and I try and do something fun with them every day to stay busy – I call it Mommy Camp 🙂  Here’s to the first full week of summer vacation!

99% of the time I buy a stamp because I think it’s versatile and I can get a lot out of it.

However, sometimes I’m just drawn to a specific image.

But in the case of the Lilypad Lake (which I recently bought) it was the sentiments.  As I created my card today I had a very specific person in mind and decided to keep the front sentiment-less and on the inside I stamped the “Thinking of you with loving thoughts and prayers.”

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I embossed it with (what I think is) my new favorite embossing folder – “Subtle.”  I actually bought it because I couldn’t really see from the catalog what it was and now I LOVE it!!!  It’s well…subtle, but is perfect for when you want a little texture, without anything really out there.  Love, love, love!

I then wound around a Lovely Lipstick bow.  Then I matted a panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock on Whisper White cardstock.  I took another panel of Pool Party cardstock and used the Lakeside Framelits Dies to cut out a wave into it which I then matted on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the lilypads and crane from the Lilypad Lake Bundle in Stazon Black ink on Shimmery White cardstock.  I used a Blender Pen and Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick ink to color in the lilypads and Daffodil Delight ink for the crane and then cut them out with the coordinating framelits.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.

Stampin’ Up! Sea of Textures Card

Once a month the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop will be combining with the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We can choose between two challenges and I chose to work with the sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the Tranquil Textures DSP.

I next matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on Balmy Blue cardstock and adhered another pattern from the Tranquil Textures DSP to the bottom of that.

I used the Under the Sea Framelits Dies to cut out the various ocean details using Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue, Tranquil Tide, and Crumb Cake cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment twice, first in Versamark ink on Tranquil Tide cardstock which I sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set.  The second time I stamped it in Tranquil Tide ink on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I fussy cut out the “wonderful” from the latter and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals over the other.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons – SIP Challenge 155

There’s nothing like new Designer Series Paper to inspire you.

Someone recently asked me how do you decide what colors to use for a card.
Well, many times I pick colors that Stampin’ Up! has put together in Designer Series Paper.

The great thing is Stampin Up marks right on the bag of the packet of paper what colors are in it/coordinate with it.

For today’s card I was inspired by the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper and in particular the one pattern in the upper right hand corner.

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock.  I then matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on Melon Mambo cardstock.

I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out a bunch of flowers to cascade down the card.  I used all the pinks and oranges from the Garden Impressions DSP:  Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Petal Pink, Powder Pink, So Saffron, and Mango Melody.

I cut out a circle using the Layering Circles Framelits from Melon Mambo cardstock.  The DSP also had a hint of Soft Sea Foam, so I used that cardstock to cut out an Adirondack chair.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Mango Melody.

Enjoy!


My card was inspired by this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge.  I chose my design for this challenge because summers always mean hikes in nearby mountains which happen to be the Adirondack Mountains – it’s where the type of chair in the die cut got its name – “Adirondack chair.”  I also love all the bright, vibrant colors in the flowers in summer.


Today is Wednesday which means one thing….Facebook Live Tutorial tonight!!

Tonight I’m going to make a card using the new Varied Vases Bundle!  Catch it live at 7:30 pm EST, leave a message, and at the end I’ll draw a name for someone to receive tonight’s card!

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature – HSS#292

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments #292 Challenge is a fun sketch challenge!  Be sure to play along!

I used the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set to create a clean, minimalist card for the challenge.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took two patterns from the Nature’s Poem DSP, offset them from one another, and adhered them to the card front.

I then took a panel of Vellum cardstock and stamped the two leaves twice from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled them with White Embossing Powder and heat set them.  I adhered the Vellum down using Tombow liquid glue, as I find this does not show through.

I stamped the sentiment from the Another Wonderful Year Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it down.

Finally, I added two Adhesive Backed Sequins to the corner and tied a Linen Thread bow for the other.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Expressions Congrats Baby Card

I Love – Love – Love the new Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper.  It coordinates with the Twinkle, Twinkle Suite from the Annual Catalog.

Of course this suite is designed with baby projects in mind, but this paper has so many possibilities beyond that.  I love the colors in the pattern I used for my card today.

I love stripes and the Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Pool Party, and Night of Navy are so sweet together!!

I also thought I’d try my hand at a simple fancy fold – It’s kind of like an inverted match box.

I started off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP on Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the new Friendly Expressions Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Night of Night cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I cut out a Petal Pink heart using the Sunshine Wishes Framelits Dies, making sure only to adhere the top part of the heart down and not the bottom.  I wrapped around a Medium Night of Navy Baker’s Twine bow to hold the card shut.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy ink and comes from the Special Celebrations stamp set.

Enjoy!
