Bike Ride – CAS Card

My card today was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch and TGIF challenges.

My card today is a super simple CAS (clean and simple) card.  This card is great because it uses only three ink colors and (other than the gravel) does not use the Big Shot.  It’s great for a beginning stamper or someone looking for a quick cute card.

My card today starts off with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock for my scene.  To the right side I used the Labeler Alphabet to stamp my sentiment in Crushed Curry and Lemon Lime Twist ink.

I used the Bike Ride Stamp Set to create my bike which I stamped using Pool Party and Crushed Curry ink.  I used the “gravel” embossing thinlit that comes in the Build a Bike framelits to create some texture under the bike.

I took the banner from the Build a Bike Framelits and cut out a banner (twice) in the corner.  I then matted the Whisper White cardstock on Crushed Curry cardstock.

Enjoy!

Oh So Eclectic Stampin’ Up!

For my card today, I’m prepping for my August Make & Take party.  For my party, we’ll be making four cards using the Oh So Eclectic Bundle.  If you’re in the Upper New York area, I’d love to have you join me!!  Check out the details on my Facebook page here.

My card starts with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Naturally Eclectic DSP, matted it on Soft Sky cardstock, and adhered it to the card.

Next I took some Berry Burst Crinkled Ribbon and sort of folded it on itself and adhered it down.  I cut out one flower in Soft Sky cardstock and one in Peekaboo Peach cardstock using the Eclectic Layers Framelits and adhered it over the ribbon.

Lastly, I stamped the petal stamp from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp on Peekaboo Peach cardstock in Peekaboo Peach ink and then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy over it and cut it out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Badges & Banners

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took another panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Swirly Bird stamp set to stamp different sized swirls over it in Berry Burst, Melon Mambo, and Powder Pink ink.  I matted this on Melon Mambo cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I next stamped two badges.  The one badge I stamped in Versamark ink on Melon Mambo cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I cut it out with the Best Badge punch and adhered two strips of Powder Pink ribbon behind it. The other I stamped in Powder Pink ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Before adhering the banners, I added a banner of Powder Pink cardstock behind them.

Enjoy!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then used the Stitched Framelits, Coffee Break DSP, and Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz cardstock to cut out 4 stitched squares.  I then used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut out scalloped squares to put behind the stitched squares.

I created my coffee cup using Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede ink and the Coffee Café Bundle.

Behind my coffee cup I adhered a piece of burlap and then tied around the coffee cup a linen thread bow.  I adhered the cup using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Oh So Eclectic Greeting

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I used the one leaf embossing framelit from the Eclectic Layers Framelits to make an embossed impression in the left side of the cardstock.

I took a panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and used the one die cut from the Oh So Eclectic Bundle to cut out a pattern in two of the corners.  I matted the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock on Whisper White cardstock and adhered a piece of Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon to the one side.  I purposefully left a tiny piece of Lemon Lime Twist poking out the side, as I did with leaving a tiny bit of Berry Burst showing to the right of the Lemon Lime Twist.

I cut out two leaves from one of the patterns in the Naturally Eclectic DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist.

Daisy Delight Greeting

My card today was inspired by challenges this week at Fab Friday and Sunday Stamps.

My card starts off with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Delightful Daisy DSP, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card.

I took another panel from the Delightful Daisy DSP and made a banner going across the center of the card and adhered over it a piece of Old Olive mini chevron ribbon.

I created my daisies using Berry Burst ink and the Daisy Delight Bundle.  I added a few Old Olive leaves (that I fussy cut out) and a Clear Faceted Gem in the center of each.  I adhered them using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst ink and adhered it overlapping one daisy.  I stacked two Stampin’ Dimensionals to the end that wasn’t touching the flower.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love

My card today was inspired by challenges at Global Design Project and Stamp, Ink, Paper (although loosely as I’m just now seeing the “add a metallic”).

 My card today starts off with Island Indigo cardstock.  I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and matted it on Berry Burst cardstock.  I used the Lemon Lime ink pad and an Aqua Painter to add color behind the jar.

I created my jar using the Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating Everyday Jars framelits.  I stamped the outline of the jar in Memento Black and the stems in Island Indigo ink.  I first stamped the flowers in Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist ink and then stamped the highlight in White Craft ink.

I adhered a Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon around the top of the jar and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card.  I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Badges & Banners

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Fresh Florals DSP and adhered it on the card

I took a banner of Watercolor Paper and stamped the birdcage image from the Badges & Banners stamp set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I then took an Aqua Painter and wet the paper and added Berry Burst ink to it.  In order to dry it faster, I used the Heat Tool to dry the paper which made the ink run, which I actually really liked.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Berry Burst cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and set it with the heat tool.  I used the Duet Banner punch to cut it out.  Lastly, I matted the banner on a bigger Berry Burst banner.

Enjoy!
