Stampin’ Up! NEW Technique Part 2

On Wednesday I shared a card that used a really cool technique that I completely accidentally stumbled upon.

I decided to try the same technique and change up the colors.

First up, I used Seaside Spray and Night of Navy on my technique and added Gray Granite to the overall card.

I used the To A Wild Rose stamp set for the sentiment and Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut it out and then the Very Versailles Stamp Set for the stamped image and the Wild Rose Dies for extra detail.

Next I tried my technique using Pear Pizzazz and Mint Macaron colors.

I again used the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set for the sentiment and the Wild Rose Dies to cut it out, as well as for some extra detail.  I brought in a Garden Lane Designer Series Paper pattern to bring out both colors.

For a detailed look on how to create this technique, check out my YouTube tutorial on it here.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

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

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the bigger floral in Daffodil Delight ink, the smaller floral in Pool Party ink, and the leaves in Old Olive ink.

I used the Nested Stitched Dies to cut out a label and stamped the small rose in Daffodil Delight ink (stamping off first) and then the sentiment over it in Pool Party ink from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp.

I wound behind it some Silver Thread and adhered a small panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock down.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! CAS It Starts with Art Card

Sometimes you just need a quick CAS (clean and simple) card with a fun sentiment.

The Follow Your Art Suite is perfect for such a card.

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.  Next I layered a pattern from the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper on Pacific Point cardstock.

Next I used the Nested Stitched Dies to cut out another pattern from the Follow Your Art Designer series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the It Starts with Art Stamp Set in Pacific Point ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies and adhered it over a Petal Pink stitched circle which I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.

For the fun of it, I made the same card but this time with Calypso Coral cardstock.

Which is your favorite?


For the first time Stampin’ Up! has added stamps to the clearance rack!!  This is pretty exciting.  There’s a slew of them and they’re available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  So don’t wait!

Stampin’ Up! 1 Design, 2 Cards Hold on to Hope

A customer recently requested I make a card using the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set.

I have to admit it’s not one I pull out often, but I’m always up for a challenge (and I love when someone requests something).
Here’s what I came up with…

My card starts off with Pretty Peacock Cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile embossing folder.

I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on a Silver Foil Sheet and stamped the floral image from the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock on the front.

Next I cut out the solid cross and the detailed one from Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Cross of Hope dies and adhered them over each other.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink and cut it out using the same Cross of Hope Dies.

I wanted to see what it would look like if I switched up the colors and this is what I came up with…

Same design, just reversed the colors around.

Enjoy!


The Daisy Lane Stamp Set and Medium Daisy Punch are a great addition to your collection.  They coordinate perfectly with the returning Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Daisy Punch and offer so many possibilities.

If you purchase the Daisy Lane Stamp Set between now and July 20th through my store, I will e-mail you four free video tutorials using the Daisy Lane Stamp Set.  These will include tutorials to make three cards and one gift item.

If you purchase the Daisy Lane Bundle, I will mail you the product needed to make one of each of the four projects.  Please note that per Stampin’ Up! policy I can’t mail any stamped items.  The necessary cardstock will be included, but you will need to stamp these images.

Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Thing – Sweet Card

The very first thing I ever bought from Stampin’ Up! was their Designer Series Paper.

I loved all the designs, high quality product, and how everything was color coordinated.

And something they match Designer Series Paper to framelits that cut images out – now that’s pure brilliance!

My card today starts off with Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I then took a panel of Pool Party cardstock and embossed it using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the new More Than Words Stamp Set (part of the newly released Sale-A-Bration coordinating product) and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink.

I adhered over that a pattern from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  I took another pattern and used the Jar of Sweets Framelits to cut out the jar of goodies, adhering the one down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This paper combined with the framelits make this card easy peasy!

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Birthday

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

My card today starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I then layered a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP over the card front.

Next I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Call Me Clover cardstock.  I stamped the flower from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and colored it in using Call Me Clover and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I used the Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker to color just a little bit around the flower.

Lastly, I tied a Linen Thread ribbon through a True Gentleman button to the one corner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Love You To Pieces Card

I’ve been so busy cutting up and prepping my Product Shares that I really haven’t had time to play with my new Annual Catalog goodies.

So I was so excited yesterday to pull out the Love You To Pieces Bundle for my Facebook Live Tutorial.

This is a fun set and I knew I “needed” it because my girls and I LOVE doing puzzles in the fall and around Christmas.  I can’t wait to scrapbook with this bundle!

I had to move my Facebook Live Tutorial to Friday night because of a scheduling conflict, but normally they’re Wednesday night at 7:30 pm EST.  If you catch it live and leave a comment, at the end I draw a name for someone to receive that night’s card!

If you ever miss a tutorial, you can always catch them on YouTube.

Hand Stamped Sentiments #289

I am pretty excited about this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments #289 challenge – I LOVE banners!!

Be sure to play along and link up your card to the challenge!

It’s just about wedding season and I actually had a special request come in to make a wedding card.  This is what I made…

My card starts off with Powder Pink cardstock which I embossed using the Softly Falling embossing folder.

I then cut out a 2″ Silver banner and adhered over it a Marina Mist scalloped square which I cut out using the Layering Squares Framelits.  I stamped in Powder Pink ink and cut out the cake using the Cake Soiree Bundle.

I cut out a silver rose using the Sweet Cake Framelits.  Next to it I wound around some Silver Thread and placed a Silver Enamel dot over it.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, and heat embossed it.

Enjoy!
