Weather Together – Celebrate

My card today was inspired by the CASEd card over at TGIF Challenges.

I love how she created the little window out of the card, and it really inspired me.

My card uses Thick Whisper White cardstock as its base.  I used biggest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and cut out a sort of window from the cardstock.  I then cut out the same sized Stitched Square from Pool Party and Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I used the next smaller square from the Layering Squares Framelits to cut out the inside of the squares.

I stamped the flowers from the Weather Together Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink on either corner of the square and the sentiment on the inside of the card.

I then stamped the umbrella and handle from the Weather Together Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on Pink Pirourette cardstock and cut it out using the coordinating framelits from the bundle.

I played with the placement of the frames and umbrella a bit.  When I’m trying to decide where to place something, I take pictures of it on my phone.  I find looking at the card in a picture gives me a better idea of how it truly looks as opposed to trying to gauge it in front of me.

Here’s one I thought might work:

And another one:

I finally settled on moving the frames around and placing the umbrella to the upper left hand corner.

Enjoy!

Watercolor Dragonfly Dreams

The inspiration for the colors in my card come from the challenge over at Sunday Stamps.

ssc145

My card starts off with Pink Pirouette as a base.  I layered some watercolor paper over some Basic Gray cardstock.

I stamped the falling dots from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set at the top and bottom of the watercolor paper in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I then took an Aqua Painter and squeezed it to get the water to pool at the end of the tip.  I dotted the water all over the falling dots that were stamped until they were wet.  I dried the paper with a heat tool, which caused some of the ink to run, giving it a really cool look.

My guess is that if you were to make a bunch of these cards, each one would have a unique look.

I cut out the dragonflies from the coordinating thinlits in Smoky Slate cardstock and after adhering them to the watercolor paper added three pearls on each one.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo and cut the end in a banner.

Enjoy!

So In Love – Celebrate Card

Today’s card was inspired by the challenges over at Stamp, Ink, Paper and Global Design Project.

gdp070 sip-81-color-challenge-1024x962

Today I’m bringing you a simple CAS (clean and simple) card.  My card uses Basic Black cardstock as its base.  I used the sentiment from the So In Love Stamp Set which I stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed using white embossing powder.

so-in-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out the detail using Whisper White cardstock and the So Detailed Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the little center detail and “Enjoy” using Real Red ink.

Lastly, I tied a ribbon around the card using the Real Red Ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack and added a Real Red Enamel Heart.

Enjoy!

Celebrations Duo – Celebrate

My order with the new product from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalog arrived yesterday.  The quickest way to get out of a creative lull – new product!

I was so excited, I didn’t know where to start.  I love everything – it all!

I had seen the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder and was so intrigued by it.  The great thing about the two folders is that it creates a negative impression of the sentiments.

142760g

For my card today I’m starting off with Sweet Sugarplum cardstock on which I took a pattern from the new (and gorgeous) Succulent Garden DSP and layered it over Whisper White cardstock.

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

Next I took some Whisper White and dry embossed the “Celebrate” using the Celebrations Duo TIEF.  I then took the circle image from the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set and stamped circles in Sweet Sugarplum, Smoky Slate, and Mint Macaron across the “Celebrate.”  I layered the Whisper White on some Smokey Slate cardstock.

Now I was struggling a bit to keep the ink from going into the word, so I looked up a card my upline, Amy, had made and sure enough she had a great TIP!  If you keep the cardstock after it goes through the Big Shot in the folder, it give you some umf (and yes, that’s a technical term) on which to stamp.  I had much better results doing it this way!

Lastly, I heat embossed the “Good Times” using white embossing powder, Versamark ink, and the heat tool.

Enjoy!

Celebrate – Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

15253458_10211555773398244_4659025991003193577_n

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop theme is: Celebrate.  Be sure to hop through all the blogs to see what everyone created for this theme.

For my card I’m celebrating the new year.  As the sentiment says – There is much to celebrate.  2016 has been a good year to me and I look ahead to 2017 with an excitement.

My card starts with Elegant Eggplant as its base.  I used the star stamp from the Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set and inked it in Versamark and stamped it a few times on the Elegant Eggplant.  I then heat embossed the stars using White Embossing Powder.

heres-to-cheer-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used a Silver Foil Sheet to cut out the 2017 using the Large Number Framelits.  Next I stamped the sentiment from the Here’s to Cheer in Versarmark and heat embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder.

heres-to-cheer-stampin-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut it out using the Layering Circles Framlits and cut out a layering circle (Elegant Eggplant) behind it.  Both circles were layered over a Silver Doily.  Lastly, I added a few white sequins all around the card as well.

Enjoy!
