Oh So Eclectic – FMS301

Today’s card was inspire by the challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered a pattern from the Naturally Eclectic to the front of the card.

Next I cut a panel of Berry Burst cardstock.  I stamped the two flowers from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set in Versamark ink on the cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed it.

The sentiment comes from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set which I stamped in Versamark ink, sprinkled with white embossing powder, and heat embossed.  I added a bow around the Berry Burst cardstock using Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

Enjoy!

CASE Thank You Card – GDP100

This week’s Global Design Project challenge is really fun.  Each designer has created a new card and we can choose which designer we’d like to CASE (copy and selectively edit).  I’ve chosen Jessica Williams.

I was immediately intrigued by her card.  It didn’t have a lot of bells and whistles, but it’s clean design was so pretty and I loved the bright colors.

My card starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I first took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Embossing Paste to create my colored background.  I mixed some paste with Melon Mambo ink and some with Bermuda Bay ink and then spread them across the diamond patterned mask.  I matted the Whisper White on a piece of Vellum cardstock and adhered it to my card.

Next I used the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits to cut out a dragonfly using the Copper cardstock.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set on Vellum cardstock in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with copper embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I unraveled some Solid Whisper White Baker’s Twine and wound one of the strands behind the sentiment.  I also wound around some Copper Thread behind it.

Interesting discovery, vellum is usually hard to adhere to cards because you can see the adhesive through the paper.  However, this time I adhered it with Tape & Tear adhesive and I noticed you could barely see it!

Enjoy!

Birthday Memories Card

My card today was inspired by this weeks TGIF Challenge.

My card today starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I took a strip of Tear & Tape adhesive and placed it down the middle of the card.  I then took the Pacific Point Stitched Edge Ribbon and sort of folded it onto itself over the adhesive.  I layered it  a panel of Pacific Point cardstock which I adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I took the Birthday Memories DSP and fussy cut out two cakes and a bunch of presents.  I arranged them over another pattern from the Birthday Memories DSP.

I layered the cake and presents with the sentiment which comes from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and was stamped in Real Red ink.  I added a few enamel dots to finish off the card.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Christmas Happiness Card

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I used the NEW Christmas Happiness stamp set and stamped the needles in Old Olive ink (stamping straight on, as well as stamping off).

I took a pattern from the NEW Merry Little Christmas designer series paper and matted it on a panel of Early Espresso cardstock and adhered it to the card.  Using the Christmas Happiness stamp set, I stamped the outline of the two bigger pinecones in Early Espresso ink and stamped one solid pinecone image in Soft Suede ink and the other in Crumb Cake ink.

I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Whisper White cardstock and stamped the background pinecone in Crumb Cake ink (stamping off twice first).  I fussy cut the pinecones out and adhered them to the card front.  I folded around some Old Olive Ribbon and tied a Linen Thread bow around it to hold it together.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Merry Café

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

My card today uses a bit of brand new product from the Holiday Catalog, as well as product that is currently in the Annual Catalog.

Specifically, from the Holiday Catalog I used the Merry Café Stamp Set which coordinates beautifully with the Coffee Café Bundle.

My card uses Soft Sky cardstock as its base and layered it with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut a banner of Gold cardstock which I layered over that.

First I took a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock.  On the bottom I adhered behind it two banners of patterns from the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.

I used the Coffee Café Bundle to create my coffee cup using the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.  The lid and sentiment comes from the NEW Merry Café stamp set which I stamped in Soft Sky ink.  I picked this sentiment, thinking this card would be sweet for someone expecting a new baby.  I layered underneath the coffee cup some Soft Sky Ribbon and Mini Gold Sequins.

Enjoy!

Bike Ride – CAS Card

My card today was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch and TGIF challenges.

My card today is a super simple CAS (clean and simple) card.  This card is great because it uses only three ink colors and (other than the gravel) does not use the Big Shot.  It’s great for a beginning stamper or someone looking for a quick cute card.

My card today starts off with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock for my scene.  To the right side I used the Labeler Alphabet to stamp my sentiment in Crushed Curry and Lemon Lime Twist ink.

I used the Bike Ride Stamp Set to create my bike which I stamped using Pool Party and Crushed Curry ink.  I used the “gravel” embossing thinlit that comes in the Build a Bike framelits to create some texture under the bike.

I took the banner from the Build a Bike Framelits and cut out a banner (twice) in the corner.  I then matted the Whisper White cardstock on Crushed Curry cardstock.

Enjoy!

Fall Frenzy Blog Hop

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is Fall Frenzy.

I love fall, it’s in fact my favorite season, so I was excited for the theme!

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the NEW (to the 2017 Holiday Catalog) Painted Autumn DSP.

Next I cut out the letters “Fall” from Tangerine Tango cardstock using the Large Letters Framelits.  I adhered them to a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on Tangerine Tango cardstock.  Underneath it I wound some Burlap Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow using Linen Thread.

Next I used the Bike Ride Bundle to create a few images around the card.  Here in Upstate New York, fall means back to school, apple picking, and bright sunflowers.  I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to focus on, so I used all three!  I stamped the images in Memento Black and then used Real Red and Old Olive inks for the apples, Crushed Curry and Old Olive inks for the sunflowers, and Tangerine Tango and Crumb Cake inks for the books.  I stamped the “Hello” from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper

Today’s card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Delightful Daisy DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I then took another pattern, cut it at 2′, and used the Triple Banner Punch to cut the end.  I took a 1-1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and cut the end of that.  Lastly I cut a 1″ strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock and cut the end of that.  On the Whisper White banner I stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set in Old Olive ink.

I wound around some Old Olive Chevron Ribbon and then tied a Linen Thread bow around it and around a piece of Burlap Ribbon.

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Time Birthday

Today’s card is inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

My card starts off with Fresh Fig cardstock.  About midway down the card, I wound around a piece of Gold Thread.

I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and used the Celebration Time stamp set to create the banner.  I stamped it in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Fresh Fig ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  When I cut it out using the Celebration Thinlits, I put a piece of Gold cardstock behind it.  I snipped off the top and bottom of the cake and adhered them over the Very Vanilla cut out image.

I made a bow using the Celebration Thinlits and Gold cardstock and added a few Gold Enamel Dots.

Enjoy!
