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!

PRODUCT LIST:

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.

Enjoy!

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.

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.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using Blushing Bride ink.

Suite Sentiment Card

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

15590489_10211887776538115_4326421003536483901_n

Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is so beautiful that I really wanted to showcase it for this card, knowing it fit perfectly with the color challenge.

I started off with the Tip Top Taupe as my base color which I layered with two patterns from the Succulent Garden DSP, offset from each other.

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

I next cut out a Mint Macaron swirl from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.  I glued down some adhesive in the center of the swirl and wrapped around some Linen Thread a few times.

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

My sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments stamp set which I heat embossed using White Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink, and a Heat Tool.  I cut it out and other layers of Tip Top Taupe and Old Olive using the Layering Squares.

Enjoy!

So In Love With You

The colors for my card today were inspired by the Color Challenge over at My Favorite Things this week.

mft_colorchallenge_paintbook_62

My card uses Mint Macaron as its base which I layered with Basic Gray cardstock and then Whisper White cardstock.

so-in-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I used the So In Love stamp set to create a cluster of images and a variety of inks:  Night of Navy, Mint Macaron, and Bermuda Bay.  I added a few enamel dots around the flowers.

Lastly, I heat embossed using white embossing powder the two sentiments, each in a banner.

Hey, Chick

I’ve had these silly little chickens/egg since the beginning of Sale-a-bration, not quite sure what to do with them.

So I decided to just dive in and embrace their craziness.

I stamped the four images in Archival Black on watercolor paper.  I used an aqua painter and a slew of inks to color the chickens/egg in (Watermelon Wonder, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Marina Mist, Smoky Slate).

hey-chick-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then cut the images out using the Layering Circle Framelits and overlapped them over each other using some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

hey-chick-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder and added some Striped Watermelon Wonder Ribbon underneath it.

Enjoy!
