Hexagons – Just A Note

My card today starts off with Wild Wasabi cardstock.

Do you find Stampin’ Up! colors have “seasons.”  I rarely pick up Wild Wasabi in the fall or winter and I’ve used it multiple times in spring so far.

Back to my card…I then took a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock and dry embossed it using the Hexagons embossing folder.  This picture doesn’t do it justice – the impression it makes is stunning!!!  This folder is a MUST!

I matted the Crushed Curry on some Whisper White cardstock and tied around it a bow using Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.  I then adhered it off center on the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Wild Wasabi ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  Next I cut out a bumble bee using the Detailed Dragonfly and adhered it to the card.  I took the Basic Black marker and drew dots away from the bumble bee as if he was buzzing around.  And because he came from somewhere…

I continued the dots on the inside.

Enjoy!

My card was inspired by the challenge this week at Stamp Ink Paper.

Penned & Painted – FMS282

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I do have to admit, though, that I just noticed where the sentiment was supposed to be placed – oops.

I wanted to do the spotlight technique on my card today.  I was so focused that I totally forgot to “spotlight” and do the cut outs the first time around.  However, I liked how it looked so much, that I decided to show it anyway.

Card #1 uses Mint Macaron cardstock as its base.  I used the Penned & Painted stamp set to stamp the outlined image of three flowers and three leaves on Whisper White which I matted on Marina Mist cardstock.

Next I stamped the solid flower image (stamping off first) in Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Marina Mist ink.  I added the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Marina Mist ink.

Card #2 uses Marina Mist cardstock as its base.  I again stamped the outline flower image three times on Whisper White cardstock.  This time before coloring them in I used the Layering Squares Framelits and cut out three squares.  I stamped the solid flower image in the same three colors (Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Marina Mist) on the squares that were cut out.  I matted them on the scalloped squares that coordinated with the color of the flowers and adhered them in the correct spot.

I added the sentiment, this time in Mint Macaron ink, and matted the Whisper White cardstock on Mint Macaron cardstock.

Enjoy!

Falling Flowers

If you’re swinging by from Amy’s blog – Welcome!

I am having so much fun playing with the new goodies from the new Annual Catalog!  My favorite Designer Series Paper has been English Gardens.  However, I must say that the new Blooms & Bliss DSP is by far my new favorite paper!!!  I love the pattern and the colors are so sweet and pretty together.

141654G (2)

For today’s card share, I started with some Sweet Sugarplum.  I took one of the patterns from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and layered it over some Whisper White.  I then took another pattern from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and cut it in a 1′ strip and used the Triple Banner Punch to snip the ends.

Falling FLowers - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The sweet flowers and leaves comes from the Falling Flowers Bundle and were cut in Flirty Flamingo and Sahara Sand.  The sentiment comes from the Better Together Stamp Set and was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum.

Enjoy!
