Black, White, and Melon Mambo Card!

Last week I made a black and white card (with a hint of Bermuda Bay) and today I’m bringing you another black and white card, this time with a hint of Melon Mambo and Smoky Slate.  I’m really liking these colors together (thank you Global Design Project).

I started with a base of Basic Black and then layered it with some Smoky Slate.  Over the Smoky Slate, I strung around some Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine.  Next I layered some Basic Black over Melon Mambo over some Whisper White.

Banners For You - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

First I stamped my sentiment (so I had a gauge of space and size for the flowers) in Melon Mambo on Whisper White.  The banners and sentiments com from the Banners For You Bundle.  This bundle is great because it really allows you to create different phrases for your sentiment.  I built my phrase using 5 separate phrases.

For my flowers, I used the various flower stamps in the Banners For You Bundle and stamped them above and below the banner in Versarmark.  (I first drew lines in pencil that could be erased so I knew whereabouts to put them.)  I heat embossed the flowers in white using the heat tool.  To adhere the banner, I used dimensionals to give it a bit of a lift.

Enjoy!

Today’s card layout was inspired by this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I am having so much fun with the Jar Of Love Bundle.  I hope you’re not sick of me posting cards starring it yet.  I’m sure there’ll be more to come.

For today’s card I started with a base color of Watermelon Wonder.  I then layered it with Crumb Cake and Pool Party.

I then used Crumb Cake to create the mason jar, Pool Party to fill it in, and then Peekaboo Peach for the goldfish.  They were cut out using the Everyday Jars coordinating framelits.  Included in the Everyday Jars framelits is a row of hearts.  I stamped out six hearts in Watermelon Wonder and placed them as if they were the goldfish bubbles.

I then took a 1″ pattern from the Affectionately Yours DSP and used the Triple Banner Punch to snip the end and tuck it behind the mason jar.  I next took the 5/8″ Mini Striped Watermelon Wonder Ribbon, snipped the end to make a banner, and then tied it next to the jar with Linen Thread.  The sentiment was stamped in Crumb Cake and is from the Jar Of Love Bundle.

Enjoy!

Sunshine Congrats

Happy Father’s Day to all great dads out there!  Although neither follow my blog, I am blessed with a great dad myself and my husband is absolutely the best of the best to our three kids.  They definitely deserve to be honored, as I’m sure yours do too!  So Happy Father’s Day!

Now, onto my card.

Life has been crazy busy lately (gotta love end of the school year), so I’m not carding (yes, that’s my verb) as much as I’d love, but this was a fun one to make.  A dear friend needed a retirement card and this is what I created…

Sunshine Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I started with a base color of Watermelon Wonder and then layered some Daffodil Delight over Whisper White and put it all together.

Sunshine Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

I used the “smudge” stamp from the Sunshine Sayings Bundle for the background detail behind the flowers.  I then cut out two flowers, one in Pear Pizzazz and the other in Watermelon Wonder, to layer over my “smudge.”  I then added a Daffodil Delight bow to tie the flowers together.

Sunshine Sayings - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The sentiment comes from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits which comes in the bundle and was cut in Whisper White.  The rest of the sentiment comes from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and was stamped in Daffodil Delight.

Enjoy!

LAST Day For Double Rewards!

I had fun combing the color challenge of Pals Paper Arts with the layout challenge from Freshly Made Sketches for today’s card share.

I started with Night of Navy as my base and layered with Whisper White.

For the left hand corner, I layered Mint Macaron over Sahara Sand and then stamped the dotted stamp from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set in Mint Macaron.

 

Swirly Bird - Stamp It Up With JaimieFor the shape, I cut out two “nests” from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, one in Sahara Sand and the other in Night of Navy.  I then fussy cut the bird and eggs out, stamped in the same colors.

I added the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set with a retired ribbon behind in Mint Macaron.

Enjoy!
