Avant Garden Shadow Card

 

 I shadow stamped the three Avant Garden flowers for this simple card. First I stamped the image with Flirty Flamingo, cleaned the stamp with the Scrub and Mist and then stamped again slightly off of the first image with Watermelon Wonder ink.

 

 

Avant Garden Watermelon Wonder Card

 

 Watermelon Wonder flowers were stamped at an angle before topping with Whisper White cardstock cut at the same angle.

I cut the top piece to 4" wide and 4-1/4" high before using my paper trimmer to cut the angle allowing for a 1" space. Then I layered the cut piece on top of the piece I was going to stamp on and and pulled the pieces back just a bit. A faintly drawn pencil lined helped keep the flowers aligned.

Celebrations Duo Masculine Card

Happy Celebrations Masculine Card

 

Isn’t this a great masculine card? I think if would work well for celebrating those milestone birthdays, too, you know – the big 4-0 or old fart kind of birthdays.

This card was shared with me by Carolyn W. I’m doubly blessed because she is a good friend and also a demonstrator. We have the best of both worlds – coffee dates and and stamping together.

 

To make this card, I embossed the word "HAPPY" twice on a piece of Basic Gray 5-1/4" x 4" cardstock, once on the top and once on the bottom. I guess technically it is debossing since the Celebrations Duo Texture Impressions Embossing Folder presses the words into the cardstock. I adhered the embossed piece to a 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" folded Smoky Slate cardfront. The Whisper White middle piece is 4" x 2" and has HAPPY debossed in the center.

The Happy Celebrations stamp set greeting was stamped with Basic Black Archival ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3/4" wide. I fishtailed the edges with the Triple Banner Punch before adding White Perfect Accents coloured black with a Sharpie marker.

Although this card would work well with any colour combination, I really like the grays together. Thanks for sharing this card, Carolyn.

Builder Birdcage Watercolor Card

Builder Birdcage by Stampin Up

 

Builder Birdcage was not the stamp set at the top of my Occasions catalogue wish list but after using it a few times, I like how unique and different my cards are using this stamp set.

I watercolored the background in Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Watercolor Wonder before stamping the birdcage with Basic Gray Archival ink. Then I just added some gold embellishments and polka dot designer series paper to complete the card.

 

Today was one of those lazy Saturdays that I love. After a quick trip to Starbucks for my favourite drink, I came home and spent time making cookies – Oatmeal Raisin for Phil, Chocolate Chip for Alex and Gingersnaps for Liam.

While the cookies were baking, I spent some time stamping. And this evening, I’m going to start the new Meredith Duran book that I’ve been saving for a night like tonight with no distractions.

Hope your weekend is just an enjoyable however you spend it.

Step it Up: That’s The Tag

That's the Tag and Timeless Tags Navy

 

Another clean and simple card using only Night of Navy and Whisper White.  I added some paper from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper pack as a focal point.

I made the butterflies tag with the That’s the Tag stamp set and Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies Bundle. I like how simple to use these tags are and the interesting shapes – a classic oval, large flower, sunburst, butterfliies, stars, leaves and a small flower. Think of all the possible card and projects using only these thinlits together in different combinations.

 

But then I decided to step it up a bit and created a second version …

That's the Tag and Timeless Tags Copper

 Here is the stepped up version using Copper – Copper Foil Sheets, Copper Metallic Thread and Copper Embossing Powder.

 To make the copper doily, I added VersaMark ink to one of the Lace Doilies by tapping the ink directly onto the doily on the white side. Then I added Copper Embossing Powder and heat embossed with a Heat Tool.

Take Your Pick: To Color or Not

Perfect Mix Stamp Set in Black and White

 

I was working on a few simple cards for a class recently and really wanted to use my new Perfect Mix stamp set. I love the images in this set and the fact that the greetings are part of some of the stamps.

I think I love to cook as much I love to stamp. And I love to try new recipes especially those for pasta or noodles. Yum!

Can you see why this stamp set was one I had to have?

Perfect Mic Stamp Set by Stampin' up!

 

 This was my first card. Super simple in mostly black and white.

But then I started to wonder if it was too simple?

 

Perfect Mix with Color

 

So I added colour using a Blender Pen and ink.

The colours are Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango.

Cake Crazy – Layering Fun!

 Cake Crazy Birthday Card

Stamping with the Cake Crazy stamp set was just too much fun!

Where to start? Did I want a cake made entirely of words? A single candle or lots of candles? Stars or a bow?

 

There are so many options for layering that I just had to keep on creating to get different looks. The stamps are photopolymer so it’s easy to line them up.

After stamping the brighter colours, I added a third heat embossed layer.

I’ll share more samples at a later date but I was really impressed with the versatility of this stamp set. Masculine, Kids, even Wedding, this set has it all.

In addition to the Real Red and Flirty Flamingo, I also featured lots of silver on the card – Silver Emboss Powder, Silver Glimmer Paper and Silver Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Order Today and Receive Your Free Item

Lift Me Up Bundle by Stampin' Up!

 

There is just over a week left to get your free Sale-a-bration items.

And one of my faves is the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (item 143608) which looks so good with the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and Up & Away Thinlits Dies

Bonus! Save 10% with the purchase of the stamp set and thinlits as a Bundle.

 

This card came together quickly because the thinlits do all the work. Each layer of colour is a separate die so all that is required is a bit of assembly.

And the designs on the paper create the perfect background. I cut the bottom piece of Smoky Slate at an angle to help the balloon look like it was floating before adding the clouds.

Some Sale-a-Bration items are now sold out (Card Tin and Glimmer Paper) so place your order today. All SAB items are while supplies last.

Go Together: Happy Celebrations & Celebrations Duo

Stampin Up Celebrations Duo Card

 

This was a super quick card to make pairing the Celebrations Duo Textured Impression Embossing Folders with the coordinating Happy Celebrations photopolymer stamp set. These two prodcuts definitely go together – you really can’t have one without the other.

 

With the Big Shot, I debossed the work "celebrate" onto Thick Whisper White cardstock and then overstamped the images. Since the word is actually indented into the cardstock, no ink covers up the greeting. I found that it really helped to stamp on the Stampin’ Pierce Mat for a crisp image. If you are a fan of photopolymer stamp sets, a softer surface like the mat under your cardstock can make a difference to the quality and evenness of the images.

 

I think it’s official – my favourite colour combination is Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. I love, love, love these three blues together. And this card uses all three for both ink and paper.

Don’t Miss Out on New Sale-a-bration Gifts

Stylish Stems Glimmer Paper Card

 

Let me introduce you to my new favourite SAB free item – the Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack.  Included are 12 sheets: 4 each of 3 colours sized 6" x 6". The colours included are Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum.

Since there is so much wonderful glimmer and shine on the paper, I decided to choose Crumb Cake cardstock as a neutral to really highlight the colours.

The layered Crumb Cake piece needed a little something so I embossed it with the Festive Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The "Happy Birthday" greeting was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink onto Vellum with a Whisper White cardstock layer behind it to help the words stand out. The edge was fishtailed using the Triple Banner Punch.


 

 

Stampin Up Special Reason Glimmer Card

 

 The Stylish Stems Framelits Dies for the Big Shot make pretty flowers and leaves like these with little effort even when using the glimmer paper.

Sweet & Sassy Framelits Valentine Card

Valentine Card with Sweet & Sassy Framelits

 

Today I wanted to make a Valentines card for my hubby. I can’t believe that this will be our 26th year celebrating the day together.

The card needed to have a masculine touch so I decided to focus on Crumb Cake and Real Red and stay away from pinks.

The two hearts were made with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies. Did you notice that the hearts are slightly different shapes? This set has 15 dies offering several different sizes and shapes of hearts.

I wet the larger heart with water and a Spritzer and then crumpled it up. After opening, I let it dry completely before adding it to the card.

I added the smaller heart with a Mini Glue Dot and then added lengths of twine from the Burlap ribbon. Cut the ribbon to the length you need and then pull out the individual pieces of twine to use on the card.

The greeting is from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set stamped in Real Red ink

 

 

Stampin Up Valentine Card

 

Can you see the hearts in the background?

I stamped over and over with the hearts from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. Don’t overlook this set as it is for so much more than calendars. It makes all kinds of backgrounds and textures including stars, dots, blotches, leaves, suns and more.
