I used Thick Whisper White as my base and then did some layering with Crumb Cake, Old Olive, and (more) Whisper White.

one-big-meaning-stamp-it-up-with-jaimieI used the Falling Flowers Bundle to create by background, stamping the various flowers in Flirty Flamingo, Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Old Olive and So Saffron.  I stamped a separate flower in Soft Sky and cut it out with the coordinating bundle framelits and added a few Crumb Cake leaves.

For my sentiment, I placed a Soft Sky horizontal strip and then stamped the Thank You from the One Big Meaning stamp set in Flirty Flamingo, cutting the end to be a banner.  I added a few enamel dots here and there to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Cozy Trees

Today’s card share is inspired by this week’s challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches and Fab Friday.fms-final-255-001fabfri-003My card uses Delightful Dijon as its base which I dry embossed using the Softly Falling embossing folder.

stitched-with-cheer-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Then I layered Very Vanilla on Emerald Envy and stamped the larger tree from the Foxy Friends in Emerald Envy and then the smaller tree in Emerald Envy (stamping off first).  I used the masking technique to give a sense of depth to the trees.

Lastly I cut out a strip of the Delightful Dijon Ribbon from the Trio Pack and after deciding the placement of it, I stamped the sentiment from the Stitched with Cheer in Delightful Dijon above it.  These colors felt like a cozy fall evening which is why I chose that sentiment.  Fall is in the air!!

Enjoy!

Congrats – Fab Friday

My congrats card today uses both the Flourish Thinlits and the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

I first start with Crumb Cake.  Next I cut out a piece of Rich Razzleberry.  Before adhering it, I used the long thinlit from the Flourish Thinlits to cut out a strip to the left of my card and then re-applied it (after popping out all the negative pieces).

Congrats - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I cut out two shapes in Sweet Sugarplum using the Flourish Thinlits, the little flowers and then the cluster of…well, cluster of…whatever those are.  I actually cut out two of these because the little circles sprinkled around the card come from this cluster of, well, whatever it is.

Congrats - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

I then cut a rectangle of a pattern from the Blooms & Bliss gorgeous DSP and layered it over some Sweet Sugarplum.  Over that I placed a strip of Burlap and then over that I cut out the congrats in Crumb Cake from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  Just to add some extra touches I added the Sweet Sugarplum circles and some pearls.

Enjoy!

Acorny Thank You

For today’s card, I was inspired by the color challenge over at TGIF Challenges and the layout challenge over at Fab Friday this week.

FabFri93 TGIF August 2016 Challenges_2-003

I used the Island Indigo as the base of my card today and layered it first with some Smoky Slate and then Whisper White, leaving a little Smoky Slate exposed to the left.  I then used some Ruched Flirty Flamingo to tie a bow over the Smoky Slate.

Next I created my acorns.  I kinda liked the ideas of using these non-conventional colors for acorns for this card.  I used the Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, and Flirty Flamingo to create the tops and bottoms of the acorns from the Acorny Thank You Stamp Set.

Acorny Thank You - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Underneath the acorns I layered a pattern from the A Little Foxy DSP, a hint of a Delicate Doily, a few loops of Silver Thread, and then finally the sentiment stamped in Flirty Flamingo from the Acorny Thank You which was fussy cut and adhered.

Enjoy!

Scenic Sayings Friend Card

Today’s card share was inspired by the Fab Friday layout challenge.

FabFri91

My card starts off with a base of Thick Whisper White.  If you’re using Whisper White as your card upon which you’ll build on, honestly, the Thick Whisper White is the way to go.  It holds its shape and won’t bend or flop when opened up unlike the thinner (regular) Whisper White.

Scenic Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I layered a pattern from A Little Foxy DSP over some Pool Party and adhered that to the Whisper White

Scenic Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Then I took another pattern and made a 2′ banner out of it using the Triple Banner Punch and adhered that to the left of my card.

Scenic Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

For my layering over the banner I first punched two swirlies from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, one in Smoky Slate and the other in Basic Gray.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Scenic Sayings stamp set in Pool Party, trimmed the edges, and adhered it over the swirlies using dimensionals.

To finish it off, I added just a few white sequins.

Enjoy!

Swirly Bird Kites

I love when a sketch challenge perfectly works with a color challenge to make a fun, bright card.  The sketch challenge comes from Pals Paper Arts and the color challenge from Fab Friday.

PPA-306-June23

Fab Friday Logos-018

I started with a base of Tempting Turquoise and layered it with some Real Red over Whisper White.

Swirly Bird - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then traced the clouds from Balloon Celebration, fussy cut them out, and placed them over the Real Red.  Next, I stamped three kites from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set (Real Red, Island Indigo, and Night of Navy) and placed one over each cloud.  I stamped the kite tails in Night of Navy and then added a white Baker’s Twine bow to each kite.

The sentiment comes from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo.

Enjoy!

I had fun participating in the Fab Friday Challenge this week.

Fab Friday Logos-087

For the card, I went with the bright colors from Cherry on Top DSP and a sweet (retired) sentiment.

I started with a base of Watermelon Wonder and then layered it with three different patterns from the Cherry on Top DSP, each matted on a corresponding color.

Happy Birthday - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The sentiment was stamped in Pool Party and layered over Bermuda Bay.
