Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek Petal Palette

All cards are special and made with love…

But every now and then you make a super special one…

You know, the kind that’s almost hard to give away.  That’s today card for me.

You are going to LOVE the new Petal Palette Suite from the 2018 Occasions Catalog!!

Speaking of new product…I’ll be using the brand new Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set in my Facebook Live tutorial tonight at 7:30 EST.  Swing by and check out this bright and cheerful birthday card that can work for either a girl or a guy – it’s a win-win!

So back to today’s card, which I…Am…In…Love…With…

I start out with a piece of Watercolor Paper.  I stamped the larger flower cluster in two of the corners and the smaller cluster in the other two corners in Archival Blank Ink.  I also stamped the little chickadee in Archival Black Ink over one of the flowers in Archival Black.

I first colored the images in using the Watercolor Pencils.  The roses were colored in using the Melon Mambo pencil, the leaves in using the Old Olive pencil, and the chickadee in using the Bermuda Bay and Early Espresso pencils.  I then went over the images with an Aqua Painter to smooth out the color.

Next I took an Aqua Painter and Soft Sky ink pad and very lightly colored around the flower images.  I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Pallet stamp set in Archival Blank ink in the center of the card and then matted the Watercolor Paper on Melon Mambo cardstock and then adhered everything to a Soft Sky card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bike Ride – Two Ways

My first order from the 2018 Occasions Catalog arrived and I’ve started playing with a few of the new goodies.

You are going to LOVE the new catalogs!!!!!

I feel like a kid in a candy shop playing with brand new product.  There’s something about opening a new packet of DSP or ribbon…so exciting.

Also be sure to check out my Product Share of all of the new Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and Embellishments.  I offer a number of options and you can check out all the details here.

My Facebook Live Video Wednesday night at 7:30 EST will feature the new Picture Perfect Party Suite.  Swing by as I give you a tutorial of a brand new card.  I have fun, and am very real, as I’ve been known to run out of adhesive, forget names of product, and even go live upside down.  🙂

On to today’s card…

I am all caught up on Christmas cards so I thought I’d use the Bike Ride Stamp Set today.

It’s been a bit since I’ve used it and I had so much fun, I thought I’d make two cards.  I’d love to know which one if your favorite.

Card number one starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then took a panel of White Shimmery cardstock to create my scene on.  I cut out a circle using the Layering Circles Framelits from copy paper to create a stencil.  Next I put it over the Shimmery cardstock and colored the top part in using an Aqua Painter and Powder Pink ink and the bottom using Berry Burst ink.

Next I stamped the bike from the Bike Ride Stamp Set in Archival Black ink, as well as the flower clusters in two of the corners.  I used an Aqua Painter to color the flowers in using Berry Burst ink and the petals using Tranquil Tide ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Archival Black ink.  I matted the Shimmery White cardstock on Tranquil Tide cardstock and adhered everything to the card front.

Card #2 starts off with Tranquil Tide cardstock.  Next I stamped the bike from the Bike Ride stamp set in Archival Black ink in the center of a panel of White Shimmery cardstock.  I also stamped the flower cluster in Archival Black ink hanging off the bike.

I colored the bike and flowers in using an Aqua Painter and Berry Burst ink and Tranquil Tide ink.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black Ink from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to the left of the bike.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Coffee Cafe & Merry Cafe

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

It’s sort of ironic because I made this card over a week ago.  I was waiting for a good time to post it.  So I was so excited to see the above sketch challenge – it was perfect!

My card starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I then took four patterns from the Coffee Break DSP and matted them each on Early Espresso cardstock.

I then stamped the coffee cup outline in Early Espresso ink on another pattern from the Coffee Break DSP.  I stamped the outline of the lid in Early Espresso ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I cut them out and the cup holder using the Coffee Cups Framelits.

I stamped the heart sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Pear Pizzazz ink and fussy cut it out.  Before adhering the cup to the card front, I cut a piece of doily to adhere behind it, as well as a folded piece of Soft Sky ribbon.  I adhered the cup and lid using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin Blessings

Happy Monday everyone!

Today’s card combines two of my favorite stamps from the Holiday Catalog – love-love-love!

My card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

I then took a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Versamark ink on it.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it using the Heat Tool.  I matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I used the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle and stamped my pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie, Peekaboo Peach, and Crushed Curry ink.  I cut them out and a few vines in Copper Foil Sheet using the coordinating framelits.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by challenges this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper, TGIF, and Hand Stamped Sentiments.  For the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, I went right across the middle.

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin & Count My Blessings

Today’s card was inspired by challenges this week at Sunday Stamps and Fab Friday.

Today’s card starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Tranquil Tide cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I cut out two (almost) squares.  I cut out two Whisper White panels and stamped the sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink on the smaller one.  I matted that one on Rich Razzleberry cardstock and the other on Tranquil Tide cardstock.

I cut out the pumpkin and leaves using the Patterned Pumpkins Framelits and Rich Razzleberry, Tranquil Tide, and Cajun Crazy cardstock.  I adhered the leaves behind the sentiment with a piece of Burlap ribbon and then the pumpkin towards the bottom.  I added a few gold sequins and enamel shapes to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin

My card today starts off with Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I then took two panels of a pattern from the Painted Autumn DSP, mounted them on Tangerine Tango cardstock, and adhered them over a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.

I took another panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and mounted it on Gold cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Old Olive ink on the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I added a Tangerine Tango and Gold enamel dot in the upper left hand corner.

I then used the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle to create my focal point.  I stamped the pumpkins/gourd/leaves in Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive inks.  Hands down my favorite piece to this bundle is the die cut pumpkin (Gold cardstock) and curly stems (Old Olive).

Stampin’ Up! Class Thank You

I try to give a little something extra to say thank you for my stamp party attendees.  It’s not always a card, sometimes it’s a treat or a special ordering deal.

When I do a card, I write my message on a Post-It so the recipient can reuse it.

If you are in the Upstate New York area, I’d love to have you attend one of my parties.  You can check them out on my Facebook page.  I am SO excited for my Holiday Catalog Party next Friday – can we say ladies night out!!

Back to my card for today…

My card starts with Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I then took a panel of Tranquil Tide cardstock which I clipped the end to be a banner.  I then dry embossed it using the Petal Burst embossing folder.  I then took a pattern from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and clipped the end to be a banner and layered it over the Tranquil Tide.

I stamped the sentiment from the Label Me Pretty stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink on Pool Party cardstock.  I cut it out and the scalloped circles (Tangerine Tango and Basic Black cardstock) using the Layering Circles framelits.

I doubled up a piece of Pool Party Baker’s Twine and tied a bow to finish it off.

Enjoy!

My cards were inspired by this week’s Fusion challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Back to School

My card today is inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

This past Thursday my kiddos started back to school.  I always like to make a card for their lunch box telling them how proud I am of them and encouraging them in the new year ahead.  If you go down a bit on my Facebook page, you can see this years’ cards.

I created today’s card with the idea of slipping them in their lunches maybe in about a month or so, you know when homework is in full swing, the novelty of a new year is wearing off, and the reality of tests and quizzes is setting in.

Today’s card’s base is Thick Whisper White cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered that to the card.

Using the Layering Circles Framelits, I cut out another pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP and matted it on a scalloped Flirty Flamingo circle.

I then used the Bunch of Banners Framelits to cut out yet another pattern from the Pick a Pattern DSP.  My sentiment comes from the Watts of Occasions stamp set and I thought it fit my card perfectly.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and cut them apart and adhered them to the card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest – Two Ways

Before we get to today’s card, just a reminder that you have until noon today (September 1st) to order one of my 2017 Holiday Catalog product shares.  You can see all the details here.

My card today is inspired by the sketch challenge this week at Global Design Project.

My card today starts off with a Panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Lemon Zest stamp set and Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, and Pink Pirouette inks to create my pattern.  I then stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink.

I matted the Whisper White cardstock on a panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and then tied a bow around them using the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon.  I then adhered that to a Peekaboo Peach card front.

And the inside…

Without thinking, I first cut the Whisper White cardstock too small to coordinate with the sketch challenge.  I had already stamped it out and didn’t want to just toss it, so I made another card and this time used Daffodil Delight ribbon and changed the sentiment.

Enjoy!
