Easter Peeps

My card today was inspired by the challenge over at Global Design Project this week.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock as its base.  I took a smaller panel of Melon Mambo cardstock and dry embossed 3/4 of it using the Polka Dot embossing folder.

I then took a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock (2-1/2″ x 5-1/4″) to build my striped cardstock on.  I cut strips of 3/4″ Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Tempting Turquoise cardstock and staggered them on the scrap cardstock.  Once all the colors were adhered to the scrap cardstock, I flipped it over and trimmed off all the extra cardstock overhanging.  I adhered this striped cardstock to the left of the card and covered where they met with a Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow.

Using the Decorative Label punch, I cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock for my peeps to adhere to.  Using the Basket Bunch Bundle (say that ten times fast) I created my three peeps, stamping the bunny in Memento Ink on Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I created my sentiment using Tempting Turquoise ink and the Alphabet Labeler stamp set.  I saw this cute sentiment from another demonstrator’s card (can’t remember the name), but it’s not an original idea to me.

Enjoy!

PRODUCT LIST: 

Succulent Garden – GDP#080

Today’s card was inspired by the CASE The Designer challenge at Global Design Project this week.

My card uses Crumb Cake cardstock as its base.  I took a pattern from the Succulent Garden DSP and mounted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.  I took another pattern (flowers) from the Succulent Garden DSP, mounted it on Whisper White cardstock, and layered it towards the bottom of the card.

I cut a 2″ strip of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and cut the end using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set and stamped a few of the flowers in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I used the Silver Ribbon (Sale-a-bration item) and Linen Thread to tie a bow at the top of the tag.

Lastly, I used the Designer Tee Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration item) to stamp my sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum ink.  I layered a small strip of Mint Macaron cardstock under the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Watercolor Class Cards

This past Thursday I invited a good friend of mine to teach a watercoloring class for my customers.  Watercoloring is something that has always been challenging for me and she just has an eye and gift for it.

She taught us techniques using th the aqua painter, blender pens, watercolor pencils, and spritzer.  It was a lot of fun and VERY helpful!

For my first card today she taught us using the wax paper technique.

My card starts with Basic Black cardstock.  The image comes from the Scenic Sayings Stamp Set and was heat embossed using Versamark ink, black embossing powder (retired), and a heat tool.  On that I created the watercolor effect using Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point ink, a spritzer, and watercolor paper.

Once the watercolor paper was dry, I mounted it on Basic Black cardstock and then on Daffodil Delight cardstock.

I then used the Botanical Builder Framelits and cut out two smaller leaves, one in Tempting Turquoise and one in Emerald Envy, and one larger leaf in Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I used a sponge to stamp the edges of the leaves to darken them a bit using Pacific Point ink (on the Tempting Turquoise and Emerald Envy leaves) and Emerald Envy ink (on the Daffodil Delight leaf).

Here’s a look at the second card we made using Rose Red cardstock and ink, Old Olive cardstock and ink, and Archival Gray ink.  This card was colored using a Blender Pen.  The stamps used were Oh So Succulent and Birthday Blooms stamp sets.

The third card we made used Tempting Turquoise and Night of Navy cardstock.  It uses Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, and Garden Green inks.  The flower was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using white embossing powder.  It uses my favorite sentiment – “Just a Note”- from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and gold metallic ribbon (Sale-a-bration item).  The flower comes from a retired stamp set.

Enjoy!

Sweet Strawberries

Today’s card inspiration was the Global Design Project Challenge this week.

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock which I layered with Whisper White cardstock.  I took a small strip of Real Red cartstock and dry embossed it using the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I covered the seam with a Real Red Bow from the Sending Love Ribbon.

I used the Cool Treats stamp set to stamp my strawberries in Real Red, Memento Black, and Garden Green ink all behind where my sentiment was going to go.

I then created my sentiment using Memento Black and Real Red ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.

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!

So Detailed – Just A Note

My card today was inspired by challenges over at Global Design Project and Hand Stamped Sentiments.

My card today uses Tip Top Taupe as its base.  I cut a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on a slightly bigger panel of Mint Macaron cardstock.

so-detailed-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used the So Detailed Thinlits and cut out the flower detail from Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  I cut out the same image from Mint Macaron cardstock and then using Paper Snips (sort of as a spatula) plucked out the pieces of the flowers that I wanted to color the Sweet Sugarplum in.  I adhered the tiny pieces using a Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

No Special Reason – Special Reason Card

My card today starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Falling in Love DSP.  I took a smaller panel of another pattern (3.5″ x 5.25″) and matted it on Blushing Bride cardstock to layer over the other pattern.

special-reason-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Next I created a cluster of flowers in the corner of my card.  I used the Special Reason Bundle and Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand cardstock and ink.  For the negative image flower, I cut it out using Very Vanilla cardstock and then fussy cut around the negative lines.  I adhered some of the images using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
