Fabulous Flamingo Stampin’ Up!

My card today was inspired by three challenges this week, Hand Stamped Sentiments, Paper Craft Crew, and Stamp, Ink, Paper.

My card starts off with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set to create my scene.  I stamped the water image in Soft Sky ink and Tempting Turquoise ink on the bottom and stamped the palm leaf image in Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist ink at the top.

Next I took a 3″x3″ square of Tempting Turquoise cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder.

I stamped the solid flamingo image in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it out using Paper Snips.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Tempting Turquoise ink on Soft Sky cardstock.

Enjoy!

Yesterday I finally (after having set the goal months ago to do so) did my first Facebook Live Video making this card.

You can check it out here on my Facebook page.  Of course something was going to go wrong because it was my first one and I was, well, live, so just be aware that the camera is upside down for the first 5 minutes.  (Face in hand.)  Oh well.

In my video I switched around the sentiment to “Thanks.”  Here are the two cards below.

Oh So Eclectic & Embossing Paste

This weeks Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I’ve been wanting to try the Embossing Paste for a while now and finally got the goodies to do so!!  I took a panel of Lemon Lime cardstock and placed one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks over it.  Using one of the Palette Knives I smeared the embossing paste over it, pulled it off, and then let it dry.  This was my first time using the embossing paste and I’m in love!!!

I then used the Oh So Eclectic Bundle to create my focal point.  I stamped in Versmark the various images on a variety of cardstock colors, sprinkled them with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed them.  I cut them out with the coordinating Eclectic Layers from the bundle.  I adhered them over the embossing paste (now dry).

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations in Versamark ink on Berry Burst cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I layered underneath it a strip of Bermuda Bay ribbon and added a few enamel circles.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by the color challenge this week at Fab Friday.

Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Flamingo

My card today starts off with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set to create my scene.

I stamped the outline of the flamingo in Flirty Flamingo ink, the second shade lighter in Powder Pink ink, and the lightest shade in stamped off once Powder Pink ink.  Before adhering it to the card, I wrapped a piece of Powder Pink ribbon around the side of it.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock, sprinkled it with embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I cut the end in a banner and added a smaller banner of Powder Pink cardstock underneath it.  I wound some silver thread behind it.

Enjoy!

Congrats – Cupcakes & Carousels

Whenever I need a quick card – I always turn to Designer Series Paper (DSP).  It fills the card nicely and all you have to do is add a sentiment and maybe another detail or two and you’re good!

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock as its base.  I then took a pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and using a sponge, highlighted around the edge of it with Early Espresso ink.  The paper naturally has a distressed look to it, but I thought I would just emphasize it even more.

I then took another pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and adhered a panel to the lower part of my card.  Using yet again another pattern, I cut a square and matted it on Calypso Coral cardstock and adhered it to my card.  Lastly I used the Banners for You bundle and Bermuda Bay ink to stamp and cut out my sentiment.

We made this card at a continuing education class I taught this spring.  I accidentally cut the Bermuda Bay cardstock the wrong way and so we turned it around a bit.  I love how this one came out too!

Enjoy!

Feminine Card Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “feminine” cards.  I hope you enjoy hopping around to see what everyone created.

For my card today, I start with Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Falling in Love DSP and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock which I adhered to the card.

I took one of the beautiful thinlits from the So Detailed Thinlits and cut it out using Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I trimmed down the ends before adhering it.  I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand from the So In Love stamp set on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Behind it I added a banner of Silver Foil and some wound up Silver Thread.  I adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.

I added a few rhinestones and Pink Pirouette enamel circles on the card.

Enjoy!

Baby Boy Congrats

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  I took some liberty with this challenging – using only a bit of the Blushing Bride. 😉

This card is made for my cousin and his wife who just had a baby boy.

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut a piece of Soft Sky cardstock and dry embossed it using the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder.  I tied some Very Vanilla ribbon round the bottom of the card in a knot.

Pause for a moment – This picture doesn’t do the embossing justice, no picture does.  It is far more impressive in person that I imagined.  It-is-amazing!

I stamped the tools in Sahara Sand ink on Sahara Sand cardstock and cut them out using the Nailed It Bundle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Suite Sayings stamp set in Soft Sky ink and added a Blushing Bride enamel heart.

Enjoy!

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.

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!
