Watts of Occasions – Color Theory

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

For today I made a CAS (clean and simple) card.  It starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Color Theory DSP, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it on the card front.

I stamped the light bulb from the Watts of Occasions stamp set in Archival Black ink on Watercolor Paper.  I used an aqua painter to fill it in with Crushed Curry ink and fussy cut it out.  I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals and stamped the lines around it with the Archival Black.

I stamped the sentiment from the Watts of Occasions stamp set in Archival Black ink.

Enjoy!

Lift Me Up – Fab Friday 110

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge at Fab Friday this weeks.

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and using a brayer and Pool Party ink I created a gradient look of color.  Next I used both the larger and smaller clouds and stamped them around the card in Pool Party ink.  I matted this on some more Whisper White cardstock before adhering it to the card.

Next I created my hot air balloon using the Lift Me Up Bundle.  The outside of the balloon was cut out of Whisper White cardstock and I used Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy, and Old Olive cardstock for the inside of the hot air balloon.  I adhered the balloon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I tied a bow around the bottom of the balloon in Night of Navy solid baker’s twine.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Night of Navy ink.

Enjoy!

Basket Bunch Card

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

My card uses Melon Mambo cardstock as its base.  I took a pattern from the Sale-a-bration Carried Away DSP and layered it over the card with a piece of Whisper White cardstock over it.  In the bottom left corner I used a Stamping Sponge and sponged lightly some Peekaboo Peach ink.

I used the Jar of Love Bundle and Archival Black ink to create my jar and cut it out.  I adhered the jar to the Whisper White and then created three flowers to put over it.  I stamped the flowers from the Basket Bunch bundle in Archival Black and colored them in using a Blender Pen and Melon Mambo and Peekaboo Peach ink.  (Don’t the colors look yummy together?! Almost like sherbet.)

My sentiment comes from the Sunshine Sayings bundle using Archival Black ink and Peekaboo Peach cardstock.

Enjoy!

Cherry to My Sundae – Cool Treats

My card today is actually one that I’ll be doing with my Special Education class and Make & Take class this week.  I’m super excited!

It starts off with Peekaboo Peach cardstock which I dry embossed using the Polka Dot embossing folder.  I then cut a 2-1/4″ strip from a pattern from the Tasty Treats DSP and adhered it along the middle of the card.

I then cut out the Whisper White circle using the second to largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and then cut out the scalloped circle using Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the second to largest scalloped circle.  I cut out my sundae using the Cool Treats bundle and Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, and Chocolate Chip cardstock.  I stamped the cherry using Real Red and Crumb Cake ink and cut it out using the Cool Treats Bundle.

For my sentiment, I used the Washi Tape technique.  I first covered the “cherry” part of the sentiment using Washi Tape and inked it up with Watermelon Wonder ink.  I then removed the Washi Tape and stamped the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock.  I trimmed it down and adhered it to the card.  Then I stamped the full sentiment and fussy cut the “cherry” out and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Tasty Trucks – Taco Card

I am embracing the fun, taco lovin’ self deep down inside all of us for my card today.

I used Peekaboo Peach as my base on which I stamped the taco image from the Tasty Trucks stamp set in Peekaboo Peach in a diagonal pattern.

Side note:  I originally was just going to stamp the tacos around the truck, and, well, I got a little carried away with the tacos.

tasty-trucks-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I stamped the truck using Archival Black ink and then colored it in using the Watercolor Pencils (Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, and Calypso Coral) and used a blender pen to smooth out the coloring.  I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay and then fussy cut the truck out.

tasty-trucks-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I cut out a 2″ panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock and a 1-1/2″ panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and used the Triple Banner Punch to trim the ends.  I wrapped a Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twine bow around the Rich Razzleberry.  I adhered the truck to the banners using Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the tails of the bow would fall underneath it.

Enjoy!

Lift Your Spirits – Lift Me Up

The inspiration for today’s card came from this week’s challenges over at Fab Friday and Global Design Project.

gdp_colour_challenge73_png

My uses Thick Whisper White cardstock as its base which I layered with a smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock over Watermelon Wonder cardstock.

lift-me-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I stamped a few of the bigger and smaller clouds from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Watermelon Wonder on the right side of the card.  To create my hot air balloon, I just used a paper towel.  This technique is normally done with a daubber or sponge, but I didn’t have either so I just inked up a paper towel using the ink pad and dabbed the top of the stamp with Daffodil Delight ink and Emerald Envy ink.  I cut it out using the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

lift-me-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I then cut out a 1-1/2″ banner from the Carried Away DSP and tied a bow using Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine at the bottom.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Emerald Envy and adhered it over the DSP.

Enjoy!

Delicate Details Card

For today’s card I’m using some FREE items from the Sale-a-bration catalog along with a new stamp set from the Occasions Catalog (and one I’m super excited about).

My card starts off with Flirty Flamingo which I layered with Whisper White.  I used the Delicate Details stamp set to stamp the background to my card.  I used Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride, and Pink Pirouette inks which I alternated using with the multiple patterns.

suite-sentiments-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

The sentiment comes from the Suite Sentiments stamp set.  What I love about this set is that each sentiment coordinates with a different suite from the Occasions Catalog.  If you’re looking for one stamp set to cover a variety of occasions and holidays – this is just such a stamp!

142971g

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and then heat embossed it using white embossing powder.  I cut it out using the Stitched Framelits (soon to be available again) and then layered it over a scalloped oval of Pink Piourette cardstock cut out using the Layering Ovals.

Lastly I cut out a 1-1/2″ strip of Silver Foil Sheet on which I tied a bow using the FREE Metallic Ribbon from the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

Weather Together Card

Welcome to this week’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  This week we bring you a color challenge.

14045548_10210533916492460_8058346096815913938_n

For my card I used the Weather Together Bundle.  My card uses the Emerald Envy as its base on which I layered Whisper White and then the Dapper Denim.  I used the rain drops framelits from the Umbrella Together Framlits Dies to cut out a few drops from the Whisper White so the Dapper Denim cardstock behind it would show through.  I then also stamped in Dapper Denim the raindrops across the Whisper White – which by the way I love.  You can see some of the raindrops are solid and some are just the outline

weather-together-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Next I both stamped (Emerald Envy) and cut out my umbrella using the Weather Together Bundle.

weather-together-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it using white embossing powder and lastly added an Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine bow to the bottom of the umbrella.

NEW Lift Me Up Cards – Part 2

Yesterday I previewed two of the cards we’re making at my December Make & Take party this week and today I’m showing you the other two.  If you missed yesterday’s cards, you can see them here.

As I said yesterday, I’m IN-LOVE with the Lift Me Up Bundle and coordinating FREE Carried Away DSP from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  They had me with all the great sentiments!!

For my first card, I use Night of Navy as my base.  I then layered a pattern from the Carried Away DSP (Sale-a-bration item) over some Whisper White.  I created the hot air balloon by cutting the balloon out in Night of Navy and the different background pieces in Smoky Slate.

carried-away-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then created a banner using Mint Macaron cardstock and stamped the sentiment (cute, right?!) in Mint Macaron on Whisper White.

carried-away-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-upMy second card comes right out of the Occasions Catalog (which is a great source of inspiration).  The base for my card is Basic Gray which is layered with some Soft Sky.  I then created my balloon using Smoky Slate for the balloon and Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White for the background pieces.

lift-me-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out a few Whisper White clouds (one adhered using a dimensional) and then stamped the sentiment in Archival Basic Gray.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Wishes

If you saw yesterday’s post, I pointed out that the “negative deer image” came from today’s card, so here you go.  Now you can see what I was talking about.

I used Crumb Cake as my base and then layered Real Red over a pattern from the Candy Cane Lane DSP, slanting them ever so slightly.

christmas-wishes-stampin-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I stamped the tree image from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set in Garden Green on Pear Pizzazz and the deer image in Chocolate Chip on Crumb Cake and cut them both out using the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlit Dies.  I then stamped in Real Red the star and bow and cut them out using the Santa’s Sleigh Bundle.

christmas-wishes-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Next I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and mounted it on another piece of the same patterned paper.
