Swirly Thank You

My card today was inspired by challenges this week at Sunday Stamps and Global Design Project.

My card starts off with Pear Pizzazz cardstock as its base.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and in the bottom corner stamped one of the swirls from the Swirly Bird stamp set in Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz, and Mint Macaron ink.

Next using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, I cut out swirls in Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz, and Mint Macaron cardstock and adhered them over the coordating ink color.  Before adhering it to the card, I snipped off any cardstock that was hanging off the card.

Using the Layering Squares Framelits, I cut out a frame in Whisper White cardstock using one bigger scalloped framelit and one smaller square framelit.

I stamped the sentiment from the One Big Meaning stamp set in Peekaboo Peach ink and adhered it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped and cut out a bunch of flowers and adhered them around the sentiment.  Some I adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Timeless Tags – Thank You

My card today starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Falling in Love DSP and matted it on Blushing Bride cardstock to adhere over the Very Vanilla.

I then used the Timeless Tags thinlits and cut out butterflies in Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride, and Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I glued them in a gradient fashion on a piece of Vellum and adhered that to the card.

I out a 1-1/2″ banner in Blushing Bride cardstock and adhered a piece of Very Vanilla lace behind it before adhering it to the card.  I wrapped around some Linen Thread to make a bow and stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and snipped the end in a banner.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge over at Paper Craft Crew this week.

Dragonfly Thank You

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

My card today starts with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took a smaller panel of Mint Macaron cardstock and dry embossed it using the Woodgrain embossing folder and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I first adhered a Lace Doily on the card and then a strip of Burlap ribbon.  Next I created my dragonfly using the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.  I stamped the dragonfly in Versamark ink on Calypso Coral cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, the heat tool, and the embossing buddy.

Lastly, my sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  I used the washi tape technique to cover part of the sentiment and stamped the Thank You in Calypso Coral ink.  I added a few rhinestones to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Nailed It – Thanks

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge over at Fab Friday.

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock as its base.  I took a panel of Delightful Dijon cardstock and using the Nailed It stamp set stamped in Archival Black ink the different tools on it.  I then matted the Delightful Dijon on Very Vanilla cardstock.

I used a pattern from the Urban Underground DSP and matted it on Basic Black cardstock and adhered that to the card.  I then embossed and cut out the little ruler using the Build It Framelits (included in the Nailed It Bundle) and Silver Foil sheet.

SOON TO BE RETIRING 2015-2017 IN-COLORS

Honestly I’m in complete denial that we’re even talking about retiring colors, but as only a good demonstrator would do, I feel I need to give you plenty of time to mourn, eh, I mean, stock up on these colors before they’re going.  Pretty soon these five amazing colors will be discontinued (sniff, sniff).  Sale-a-bration is the perfect time to stock up on them – while you still can.

Cupcakes & Carousels Thanks

My card today was inspired by the challenge over at Sunday Stamps.

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock as the base.  I then took a pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and layered it over the card followed by a large banner using Early Espresso cardstock.

Before adhering the DSP to the card, I tied a Linen Thread bow around it.  Under the bow I cut out a leaf using Calypso Coral cardstock and the Flourish Thinlits.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the One Big Meaning stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on So Saffron cardstock.  I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! – Make a Medallion

My card today was inspired by the Global Design Project challenge this week – a color challenge.  They give you three colors and you got to pick the fourth – I chose Copper.

I used the Early Espresso as the base to my card on which I layered a piece of Copper Foil.

I cut a smaller panel of Whisper White and stamped the Make a Medallion stamp set a bunch of times on it using Early Espresso and Bermuda Bay ink.

I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  I cut it out using the smallest framelit from the Bunch of Banners framelits.  I cut a very small banner of Copper Foil behind it and wound some Copper Thread behind that.

Enjoy!
