Stampin’ Up! Acorny Thank You

For today’s card I wanted to feel like fall.  I wanted the card to come across as warm and cozy.

I start off with Delightful Dijon and layer it with Garden Green and then Whisper White.

acorny-thank-you-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

The first stamp I used was the Stitched With Cheer stamp set which I stamped three times (Delightful Dijon, Garden Green, Basic Black) using the knit stamp.

Next, I pulled out the Acorny Thank You stamp and coordinating Acorn Builder Punch.  I stamped the top part of the acorn in Delightful Dijon and the bottom in Basic Black.  Before adhering it, I took a bit of Garden Green Baker’s Twine to poke out behind the acorn.  To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment in Garden Green.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends – Kitty

I find creating a complex, layered, pulled together card sometimes just as challenging as creating the most simple one.  Today I’m playing along with the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

cts_190

I created two cards using the sketch, both using the Foxy Friends Stamp Set and Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set.

My family and I have a soft spot for kitties.  We’ve had many over the years and currently have 2 tabby cats and just got a new orange 3 month old kitty.  They were my inspiration for these cards.

My cards use Thick Whisper White cardstock as their base and then I layered another Whisper White on top using dimensionals.

foxy-friends-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I created this card using Smoky Slate ink for the kitty and Archival Black for the whiskers and paws.  I then used Melon Mambo for the sentiment and Thick Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine for the roll of string.  (I must say that the details on both cards were inspired from cards I have seen elsewhere and are not original ideas.)

I created the second card using the same base, but this time stamped the kitty in Peekaboo Peach.

This time the sentiment was stamped in Real Red and I used the Everyday Jars Framelits to cut out a heart for kitty to hold.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Just a Note

I have to start off by saying I went back and forth about today’s card.

As much as I like layers and frills, I also really like simple and clean.  So here we go…

Paisleys & Posies - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Simple, right?!

I started with Smoky Slate as my base color and layered it with Whisper White and then Basic Gray.

My card starts with some Sweet Sugarplum layered with Whisper White.

First I cut out some flowers (one larger and three smaller) flowers using the Flourish Thinlits.  I used Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron, and Wisteria Wonder.

Next I positioned them on the card where I wanted them so I knew where to stamp the leaves.  I stamped the leaves in Wild Wasabi in different areas around each flower.

To finish the card, I cut a strip of Wisteria Wonder and then stamped the sentiment “Just A Note” from the coordinating stamp set Flourishing Phrases in Wisteria Wonder and then snipped the end in a banner.  I adhered it in the center of the Wisteria Wonder cardstock and then added a Linen Thread bow.

Enjoy!

Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette are my primary colors this card and I went clean and simple with the details.

Flourish Thinlits - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

To add some detail on the base of the card, I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and stamped some smudges in Rich Razzleberry.  I cut out two thinlits from the Flourish Thinlits.  The Rich Razzleberry lattice I tucked under the sentiment which is from the Flourishing Phrases.

The flower thinlit I cut in Pink Pirouette and then trimmed it down a bit.  I adhered it just under the sentiment and finished the card off with a few rhinestones.

I started with a base color of Sahara Sand and then layered it with Island Indigo, Whisper White, and Sweet Sugarplum.

Next I took one of the flowers from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and stamped it in the corresponding color that it overlapped (Island Indigo over Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum over Sweet Sugarplum).

The new Flourish Thinlits is gorgeous!!!

For today’s card share I started with a base of Pink Pirouette.  I then cut out four flowers and four leaves from the thinlits in Whisper White cardstock.  Flourishing Phrases - Stamp It Up With JaimieTo get the color, I used Daubbers and dabbed the flower part in Melon Mambo and leaf/stem part in Pear Pizzazz.  I also cut out a strip of the “lattice” in Whisper White.

I adhered the lattice first and then the flowers and leaves in a circle at the center of the card.

Flourishing Phrases - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

For the sentiment, I stamped a banner from the Banners for You Bundle in Pear Pizzazz on Pear Pizzazz and heat embossed the sentiment in white over it.  I attached it using dimensionals to give it a little lift.
