Jar of Love Birthday

My card is inspired by challenges over at Freshly Made Sketches and The Paper Players.

My card today starts off with Perfect Plum cardstock.  I took a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock and used the wavy Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to cut the end of it in a wave.  Next I took a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and stamped in Sahara Sand the Hardwood stamp first.  I traced the wave from the Mint Macaron cardstock on the Sahara Sand panel and fussy cut out the wave (leaving a bit of a gap to show through).  I mounted both cardstocks on a panel of Whisper White panel.

For my jar, I used the Jar of Love Bundle and first stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron ink directly on the Mint Macaron cardstock.  I stamped the jar image in Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating framelits.  I stamped the flowers in Perfect Plum and Mint Macaron inks (stamping off for the lighter shades) and cut them out using the coordinating framelits.  I adhered a few using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment comes from the That’s The Tag stamp set and was stamped in Perfect Plum ink.  It’s a photopolymer stamp so I was able to maneuver to curve it, mirroring the wave in the cardstock.

Enjoy!

Delicate Details – Sympathy

My card today was inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

My card starts off with Emerald Envy cardstock as its base.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Delicate Details stamp set to stamp the lace at the top of the card in Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay, and Mint Macaron.

Before adhering the Whisper White to the card, I tied an Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon around it in a bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut out a scalloped oval to put behind it in Bermuda Bay using the Layering Ovals Framelits and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out two leaves in Emerald Envy and Mint Macaron cardstock using the Flourish Thinlits Dies and tucked it under the bow.

Enjoy!

Dragonfly Dreams – Thursday Blog Hop

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

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I layered with Whisper White cardstock.  Over that I adhered two panels, one in Mint Macaron cardstock and the other in Watermelon Wonder.

I used the Layering Circles Framelits and cut out a circle from the Affectionately Yours DSP which I layered over Copper Foil paper.  I cut out a dragonfly using the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and Copper Foil paper.  Before adhering it to the card, I wound some Copper Thread behind it.

The sentiment comes from the One Big Meaning stamp set and was heat embossed using Versamark ink, copper embossing powder, and the heat tool.

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.

PRODUCT LIST: 

Special Reason Birthday

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I took a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Pink Pirouette cardstock and dry embossed it using the Petal Burst embossing folder.  I adhered a delicate doily over that.

I used the Special Reason Bundle to create my flower and petals.  I stamped the flower in Pink Pirouette ink and cut it out using the coordinating framelit.  The leaves I cut out using the larger petal thinlit and Wild Wasabi cardstock.

I stamped the shape around the sentiment in Wild Wasabi ink and cut it out using the larger shape and then cut out the middle using the smaller shape (making it hollow).  I then stamped the sentiment in Wild Wasabi ink and fussy cut it out.  I added a small Wild Wasabi enamel circle next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge at The Paper Players.

Soar Above the Rest – Congrats

My card today was inspired by challenges at Sunday Stamps and The Paper Players Challenge.

pp333 ssc147

I used So Saffron cardstock as the base to my card today.  I used a pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP matted on Bermuda Bay cardstock to layer over the base.

cupcakes-carousels-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I stamped three balloons from the Lift Me Up Bundle each on its coordinating paper (i.e., Calypso Coral ink on Calypso Coral cardstock) and cut them out with the framelits from the bundle. I adhered the larger balloon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

cupcakes-carousels-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I stamped the sentiment using Calypso Coral ink on So Saffron cardstock and adhered a smaller Calypso Coral banner behind it and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestones here and there on the card to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Balloon Adventures – Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

15822762_10211923272945503_223384966683691578_n

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!
