Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames – Best Wishes

Happy Friday everyone!

Any fun plans this weekend?!

I’m in Orlando right now for Stampin’ Up!s OnStage with a whole slew of other demonstrators.  Head over to my Facebook page to check out pictures of our travels and some sneak peeks of things to come.

For today’s card I started  off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock, embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder, and matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Next I adhered down a pattern from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper.

Next I used the Foliage Frames Thinlits to cut out a floral frame from Night of Navy cardstock.  I cut out a few different leaves using the same thinlits and Silver Foil, Petal Pink, and Soft Sea Foam cardstock to adhere behind the Night of Navy frame.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Petal Pink ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Enjoy!

Have you headed over and “liked” my Facebook page yet?!

I am currently in Orlando, Florida with 4 team members for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage.  I will be posting lots of pictures of our trip, so head over to see what we’re up to!

Oh masculine cards, oh masculine cards.  They can be so challenging.

I then cut out three patterns from the Best Route Designer Series Paper to go over the Whisper White.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set in Versamark ink on a panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Thank You

I sure hope you’re having a great week.

I have been a lean-mean crafting machine as I’m doing a craft fair this weekend – making lots of super cute and fun doo-daas.

I hope to post some pictures Saturday on my Facebook page.  Wish me luck!

My card today is all fall!!

It starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock which I embossed using the Simply Stripes Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock (to be matted on Mossy Meadow cardstock) and used the Painted Harvest stamp set to stamp sunflowers across it.  I used Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze inks to stamp the sunflowers.

I used the masking technique to stamp the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink around the sunflowers.

Lastly I did some layering with a Very Vanilla banner, punched Mossy Meadow leaves, and Very Vanilla Polka Dot ribbon.  For the sentiment, I stamped it in Versamark ink on Cajun Craze cardstock.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder, heat set it, and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Joyous Noel Card

Happy Columbus Day!

Do you have any fun plans for today?

I’m heading to a farm that has lots of fun fall activities for the kids to do and pumpkin picking – one of our favorite places to go in the fall.  I’ll post pictures on my Facebook page.

And while we’re enjoying fall – snow isn’t too far behind.  Sorry folks, I know I’m the rare one – I LOVE snow!!  Bring it on – nothing like crafting during a snow storm.

So my card today starts off with Gray Granite cardstock.  I then layered a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Gold Foil.

On the right side of the Whisper White I adhered a pattern from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.   I covered the seam with a thin piece of Gold Foil.

I then used the Lined Alphabet to stamp the letters of “snow” in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set it.

Lastly I tied a Merry Merlot ribbon around a Snowflake Wire Element and adhered it over the Designer Series Paper.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Well Notes

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge is a fun color challenge.  Be sure to participate this week and link up your project to the challenge.

I thought I would keep things super clean and simple today with a set of note cards.

I love note cards – they don’t need a lot of detail on them and yet they do just the trick when wanting to send “just a note.”  I made these note cards the other day, so maybe I’m on a roll.

My note card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.    I then cut a banner using Gorgeous Grape cardstock to run down the middle.

I then stamped the wreath from the Wishing You Well Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, which I matted on Night of Navy cardstock.

I then stamped the bow in Flirty Flamingo ink and fussy cut it out, adhering it with Stampin’ Mini Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Night of Navy cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I decided to switch the colors of the wreath and bow to have a few options with subtle differences.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic New Home Card

You might see today’s card and think – tropical theme and a new home card?!

They don’t go together.

And you’d probably be right, but this card was designed with someone very special in mind.  My aunt is moving from the New England area to Florida, and they’re looking forward to the warm, ocean-y, palm tree atmosphere that this brings.

My card starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then adhered over it a pattern from the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.  I loved how Karren, from the Global Design Project’s design team, did her sentiment along the side and thought I would follow her lead.  I stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the leaves from the Tropical Chi stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out using the coordinating Tropical Thinlits.

I tied a Granny Apple Green ribbon to go over the leaves and added a few Granny Apple Green Glittery Enamel Shapes.

Enjoy!
