Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest – Two Ways

Before we get to today’s card, just a reminder that you have until noon today (September 1st) to order one of my 2017 Holiday Catalog product shares.  You can see all the details here.

My card today is inspired by the sketch challenge this week at Global Design Project.

My card today starts off with a Panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Lemon Zest stamp set and Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, and Pink Pirouette inks to create my pattern.  I then stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink.

I matted the Whisper White cardstock on a panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and then tied a bow around them using the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon.  I then adhered that to a Peekaboo Peach card front.

And the inside…

Without thinking, I first cut the Whisper White cardstock too small to coordinate with the sketch challenge.  I had already stamped it out and didn’t want to just toss it, so I made another card and this time used Daffodil Delight ribbon and changed the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Special Occasions – Happy Birthday

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenges over at Global Design Project and CAS(E) this Sketch!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I embossed using the Seaside embossing folder.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Paisleys & Posies stamp set to create my pattern with Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, and Flirty Flamingo inks.  I then matted it on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I really enjoyed the ribbon effect I used in my card the other day, that I decided to do it again. I put some Tear & Tape adhesive down first and then sort of folded the Bermuda Bay ribbon over itself on it.

I stamped the bigger image from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set (first stamping off first) in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp in Night of Navy ink.  I cut it out using the Stitched Framelits and mounted it on a scalloped Bermuda Bay circle cut out using the Layering Circles Framelits.  I adhered the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

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

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.

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.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday

Today’s card was inspired by the tic-tac-toe challenge at The Paper Players this week.  I went straight across the top.

My card today starts off with Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the A Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and matted it on Basic Black cardstock.  I took another pattern and cut a 2′ strip and the end in a banner.

I used the Stitched Framelits to create a background to the diecut Happy Birthday.  I cut circles out in Whisper White, Powder Pink, Pool Party, and Basic Black.  I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set to create the stamped sentiments on two of the circles.  I used the washi tape technique so as to be able to break up the sentiment.  I stamped the first part in Memento Black ink and the second one in Versamark ink which I sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed.

I cut out two birthdays, one in Whisper White and one in Pear Pizzazz.  I cut off the “happy” part of it and layered one over the other.  I wrapped around some Pool Party Baker’s Twine to finish it off.

Enjoy!

PRODUCT LIST:

Eastern Palace & Embossing Paste

My card today was actually the third one I made.  I started off with two completely other designs and color scheme and just wasn’t “feeling it.”  I found myself getting frustrated.

So what did I do?  Changed the color scheme completely (as I wasn’t inspired by the first one at all) and picked up something I love to work with (the embossing paste).  The result is something I absolutely love!

My card today starts off with Dapper Denim cardstock.  I used the Party Pattern Decorative Masks to create the 3D design on my card.  I mixed some embossing paste with two drops of Lemon Lime Twist ink refills and filled in the mask using the Palette Knives.  When I lifted it up, I got this beautiful design on my card.

I used the Special Celebrations stamp set to stamp the birthday sentiment in Dapper Denim ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

I adhered two patterns from the Eastern Palace DSP over the paste and then wound some Dapper Denim Baker’s Twine around them to go underneath the sentiment which I adhered using Stampin’ dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by the case the designer challenge this week at Global Design Project.

Pocketful of Sunshine – Sunday Stamps

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock. I took a panel of Vellum paper and embossed it using the Sparkle embossing folder.  I adhered a strip of Dapper Denim cardstock behind the Vellum and one strip of Real Red cardstock in front of it.

Using the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle, I stamped in Memento Ink the pocket on Dapper Denim cardstock.  I used Night of Navy ink to highlight the edges around the pocket.  I stamped the “HBD” and adhered it behind the pocket.  I adhered the pocket using Tear & Tape adhesive which I find is needed because of the bulk the pocket creates.

I then stamped the sunglasses from the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle in Memento ink and adhered them to the front of the pocket.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps’ challenge and Hand Stamped Sentiments.
