Amazing Silhouettes Faith over Fear Card ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card to share from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set and a fun technique that really showcases the silhouette aspect of this stamp set. There are three different images in this stamp set and it’s when you add ink that they really come to life.

I’m going to be using a type of “Emboss Resist” technique on my card today. Starting with the VersaMark pad … ink up the butterfly image and stamp it onto your card front (I’m using a 3-3/4″ x 5″ sheet of Basic White) re-apply ink and stamp a second and repeat. Pour White embossing powder over the butterfly images and heat until the powder turns smooth and shiny.

Next I pulled out my Blending Brushes along with Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, and Coastal Cabana ink pads….

Pull the Blending Brush across the ink pad to ink up and then using a rotating motion beginning “off” your cardstock bring it in and color in your butterflies. I used a different brush for each color. Then grab a tissue and wipe excess ink off of the embossed area.

Once the excess ink is wiped off, I added the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon between two of the butterflies attaching the ends to the backside of the card front. Once secure, I tied another piece onto the ribbon to create a bow. This is when I layered the Flirty Flamingo mat behind my card front.

Using the same Charming Sentiments bundle I used on yesterday’s card, I stamped the “Faith over Fear” sentiment in Highland Heather and then die cut it with the coordinating dies in the bundle.

I then embellished the card using the Iridescent Rhinestones. I love how they pick up the colors of the ink I used and just twinkle on this card … it gives you a soft, warm feeling like a hug, and pairs perfectly with our sentiment.

Such a beautiful card with a soft touch of color, and pretty darn easy to make too! Embossing is what actually attracted me to the world of stamping, with a few simple steps you can elevate your card to the next level. What inspired you to begin stamping?

Thank you for visiting my blog today, hope yours is a good one.

Simply Sunday: Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a simple card created with the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set from our Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog. Get back to nature with the nature-inspired images in the Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set. Create beautiful silhouettes in one simple step. Use one color to make a bold impression or multiple colors for an ombre look.

My card base is Mossy Meadow and the beautiful designer paper is Sale-a-brations very own Dainty Flowers … the paper you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase. Because the Dainty Flowers paper has shades of Mossy Meadow and Old Olive, I used the Old Olive ink for my stamped silhouette and my greeting…. both on Basic White cardstock.

I wrapped bakers twine around my stamped image to create some texture and add a touch of nature to the card. This entire piece was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting is a bit more than what I usually use for a Simply Sunday card but I couldn’t resist. Meet the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set, which includes various sentiments in different stylistic fonts designed to be used for all occasions. With this set, say thank you and congratulations, wish happy birthday and good luck, and show people you care. Grab some ink, pair with the images of your choice, and create your personalized handmade cards.

Love this sentiment set, and it gets better because it has coordinating dies!! That’s right … you can stamp your sentiments directly or die cut them and add them anywhere on your card! I also cut out a mat using the greeting die for some additional layering and to enhance the sentiment.

A great sentiment stamp set (with dies) is a must have for any stamp room, and a good investment as you can use it with any other stamp set, or just to add it to some of our stunning designer paper that doesn’t need anything else!

A simple card today that could be used for a man or a women, perfect isn’t it? I thank you for taking time out of your Sunday for the visit.

Have a great day ~

Oh Happy Day Card with Playing in the Rain by Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

A little late out of the gate today but you’ll see it’s worth the wait. My Oh Happy Day card using Playing in the Rain is sure to bring a smile to anyone who receives it! It is a monochromatic card (basically one color: Fresh Freesia) and a fun stampin’ tip you can use over and over again.

Let’s take a look at today’s card ….

I teamed up the bunny from Playing in the Rain with the Fresh Freesia from the Dandy Designs out of the Sale-a-bration catalog. This is one of the items you can get FREE with a qualifying purchase of $100. There are 48 – 12″ x 12″ sheets in this package.

Need patterned paper that can be used for any season or occasion? The Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper is the one for you! It includes versatile patterns such as plaids, polka dots, and stripes. Make this paper the background for a card or scrapbook page. Or cut it into strips or accent pieces. However you use this paper, it will make any creation look dandy!

If you look closely, you will see two different patterns. I stamped the bunny image on the floral pattern and then cut out the shirt and dressed my bunny in his new outfit!! You can tell by his reaction that he loves his new shirt …. LOL

This technique is fun to use and can be done on almost anything! This angle shows you the layers of circles that I cut out using the Layering Circle dies, and I used the vellum cardstock to highlight the bunny… he is attached directly to the vellum and then popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the greeting with Fresh Freesia, but it with the Layering Circle dies and tucked it in with the other circles. I finished off the card by embellishing it with the Basic Rhinestones.

Thank you for hanging out with me today. How are you liking the Playing in the Rain so far? I shared 3 different designs this week, and will share more soon.

Tomorrow I have a whole new stamp set that has been just waiting for me to pull it off the shelf!

See you then ~

Another Window Card using Playing in the Rain

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share another card from the Playing in the Rain using the same Window Card layout as I did yesterday. The only thing I changed was moving my “bridge” to the other side of the card, and of course my designer paper pattern and critter!

I wanted to share one of the two “rain” patterns that are included in the Rain or Shine Specialty designer series paper. This paper is a bit on the stormy side, however life can still be beautiful if we have a positive attitude. They say, it’s not what happens in life, but how we react to it …

And this happy fox doesn’t seem to let that stormy weather bother him at all. I fussy cut the flowers out again because I wanted a touch of pink in the card to coordinate with the umbrella and to create a better flow on my card. I changed the greeting as well … and I agree, rainy days are always better when your with people you care about.

Measurements:

  • Card base = 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Score at 4-1/4″ then Cut at 5-3/4″ … cut 1-1/2″ from the piece you cut off.
  • Window Sheet & Basic White Inside: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Mat: 5-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
  • Designer Paper: 5-1/8″ x 1-1/8″

I wanted to show the “embossing” on the Rain or Shine Specialty Designer paper and how much dimension and texture you create with the layers of this card …

And by the way … got the greeting down on the first try! lol I have just begun to play with this cute bundle … Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing them with you!

Thanks so much for stopping back today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Here is the list of supplies that I used for today’s card ….

Window Card using Playing in the Rain by Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share the replay and the card from my Facebook LIVE last night. It was so much fun playing with the Playing in the Rain bundle, it actually just made me happy! The song Singing in the Rain just keeps playing over and over again in my head.

Let’s get right to the video …

So, what did you think? Cutest paper right! I have my two little granddaughters this weekend (for a princess party) while mama’s at work so we are going to be “Playing in the Rain”!

Let’s talk measurements again:

  • Card base = 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Score at 4-1/4″ then Cut at 5-3/4″ … cut 1-1/2″ from the piece you cut off.
  • Window Sheet & Basic White Inside: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Mat: 5-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
  • Designer Paper: 5-1/8″ x 1-1/8″

And my greeting … Well, I pulled out my Stamparatus and the greeting was aligned perfectly. Ahhhh … the tools we have to make our cardmaking easier. Not sure why I didn’t think of that sooner.

I did a little addition to the inside as well …

I used some of the scraps left over from trimming my designer paper and added to the inside. Someone once told me it was not nice to have naked envelopes or insides!! lol

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. Hope you have all the information and instruction you need to create this quick & easy window card using the Playing in the Rain bundle and Rain or Shine Specialty Designer paper.

Have a sun shiny day … or have fun playing in the rain!

Beautifully Happy & Watercolor Pencils

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to introduce you to the magic of Beautifully Happy & Water color pencils, these two make the perfect coloring combination and it’s great for beginner stampers, or anyone of us who just loves to color. The Beautifully Happy Stamp Set can be found in our Sale-a-bration Catalog.

We begin with a plain white (Basic White) piece of paper and stamp your image with the Momento or the StazOn ink. Then I lightly color in my petals with the “Balmy Blue” watercolor pencil … I’m using Assortment 2 (found on page 126) in the Annual Catalog.

Next, I darken the area closest to the center where the flower dips down and again by following the lines in the stamped image. Now you can blend your pencil color with the Blender Pens. These are filled with specialized solution for easier blending. I did the same technique with my leaves in Garden Green, and a little dab of Crushed Curry for the center of my flower.

Once I completed my coloring, which I find so relaxing, in fact … I like to stamp several images and color them all at once, then set them aside for when I need a quick card. The base and front piece for my card are both Basic White. The front piece was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. The flower image was then attached to the front of my card using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting comes from the Beautifully Happy stamp set. If those pretty Hollyhocks don’t get you, the beautiful sentiments in this set will. They are a perfect combination to make “beautiful” cards with the perfect sentiment. I used the Double Oval punch to highlight my greeting and pop it up.

To complete the look, I added the Mango embellishments from the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots … my new favorites! You will find them on page 31 of the Jan-April Mini Catalog. The come in four colors; Mango Melody, Night of Navy, Petal Pink and Clear. They just seem to go with anything!

I hope you were inspired to pick up your Watercolor Pencils again, learned a new stampin’ tip, or hack for quick cards. Let me know in the comments below.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a fabulous Monday.

I used the Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent for my inks for this two step stamping technique and I brought back the Fresh Freesia Fine Glimmer paper as I did yesterday. I also added Wink of Stella onto my Hollyhocks to tie in with the Glimmer paper.

The greeting comes from the Beautifully Happy stamp set and then punched out with the Double Oval Punch. This was attached to the floral piece and then both were popped up using the Stampin’ Dimensionals to create texture and dimension to the card.

To finish off this beautiful card, I used the Fresh Freesia color of the Milky Dots (I just love them) and they really do complete this card. Have I sold you on this stunning Fine Shimmer paper yet? I can’t seem to keep my hands off it.

Dainty Delight Bundle meets Fine Shimmer; Stunning!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing a stunning card created with the Dainty Delight and the Fine Shimmer paper from the Fancy Flora Suite. I also borrowed a die from the Framed Florets Bundle. Let me walk you through how I created this card.

I began by stamping my floral image with Momento Ink and coloring it in with the Fresh Fresia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. (same as yesterday) and added a touch of Wink of Stella to tie into the shimmer from the Shimmer paper. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out. I then die cut the sweeping leaves from the Soft Succulent Fine Shimmer and intertwined the two pieces.

Before attaching them to my card front I created a beautiful layering … I started with a Basic White card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored and folded at 4-1/4″. The I took another piece of Basic White measuring 5″ x 3-3/4″ and then die cut with the Oval Hearts dies from the Framed Florets bundle. Then from the same packet of Fine shimmer paper, I used the Fresh Freesia Shimmer paper measuring 5-1/4″ x 4″ and layered it behind the die cut hearts allowing the pretty freesia shimmer shine through ….

Then I prepared by greeting stamped in Soft Succulent and die cut with the Stylish Shapes circle die and then used a scallop die to mat it in Soft Succulent Fine Shimmer paper. Now I layered my floral piece onto the front by using our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

You don’t really need to embellish this card as the hearts allow the shimmer to shine through …

The combination of the Dainty Delights bundle, the hearts oval from our Framed Florets truly creates a stunning card with the Fine Shimmer paper in Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent. The Fine Shimmer paper also has a sheet of Gold – it contains two 12″ x 12″ sheets of each color for a total of 6 sheets.

I fell in love with this bundle because of it’s beautiful florals and was excited to see that our Sale-a-bration catalog has a FREE offering of coordinating designer paper. You’ll see that in many cards I’ve already shared …. Just put “Dainty Flowers” into the search box!

There is years and years of information and samples for you to discover … check it out!

Thank you for joining me on this Saturday, I appreciate the visit. I’d love to know what YOU think of this card I feel is a stunner with that Shimmer paper!

Have a great day ~

Happy Friday! I’m excited to feature the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set with you today. I’ve shared several card designs that highlighted the Dainty Flowers Designer paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog, now it’s time to feature the star of the show!

The polka dot background paper comes from the Dainty Flowers designer paper but I kept it subtle to really showcase that beautiful bouquet of flowers.

I used the Fresh Freesia paper and Basic Black to make a bold statement because the beautiful flower bouquets in the Dainty Delight bundle are so delicate. I have just begun to play with this amazing bundle … In fact, I am hosting a class highlighting the best features of this bundle!

I snuck the greeting out of the Flowering Tulips stamp set … I love this stamp, it’s one of my favorite greetings and I use it a lot. I used the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink pad on the greeting and my flowers.

The greeting was attached to the piece with the flower and then the entire piece was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. It’s a pretty card that is easy to replicate … so have fun with it!

Thank you for the visit today, I appreciate you taking time out of your day to see me. I’d love to have you join me for my class as well … it’s going to be a “Galentine” party!!

Gettin’ Punchy with the Fun Cut Pattern Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you ready for some more fun cards? I’m getting punchy with the Fun Cut pattern and Dandy Designs paper I shared with you yesterday. I thought I’d share some cute cards you can recreate right away by using punches you have in your stamp room. I also added the Organdy Glitter ribbon and Iridescent Rhinestones.

Let’s take a look! Today I’m using the paper with with the Fresh Freesia and the Petal Pink. We’ll start out with the Heart Punch Pack. I punched the solid heart from the designer paper and the Scalloped Heart in Basic White cardstock.

So you’ll see the same layouts as yesterday, just my new colors and I’m highlighting the Peaceful Moments stamp set … I’m using this for my greetings on all 4 of the cards. Here you will also see the Stitched with Whimsy dies which adds texture and this cute pattern of stitching which really frames your greeting. Both the greeting and the hearts are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My second card features the Label Me Lovely punch …

This sweet and simple card also showcase a bit of bling with the Iridescent Rhinestones and White Organdy Glitter Ribbon … WOW these go together really nicely! I tied my bow “first” and then attached it to the ribbon with a Mini Glue Dot.

The third card … there she is, our Medium Daisy Punch!

Once you get your Dandy Designs paper cut and laid out onto your card mat, you can really whip out a whole stack of cards. I just added a simple banner with my Daisy and then added a few Iridescent Rhinestones.

For my last card I kept it really simple, and sorry, but on punch …

Again I brought in the Stitched Whimsy Dies, Organdy Glitter Ribbon and Iridescent Rhinestones. This pattern, a great sentiment set and a few items you have in your stamp room will create wonderful cards to share and bring joy to a friend or family member.

I want to thank you for joining me today. Have an awesome Thursday …

Fun Cutting Pattern + Fun Fold + Sentimental Park Bundle = Fabulous Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m thrilled to share the cards and the cutting pattern from my Facebook LIVE last night. I will share the replay with you which walks you through the cutting pattern, how to assemble and then finished cards created with the Sentimental Park Bundle. Plus you’ll learn a really cool way to use your Sentimental Park label dies.

Let’s watch the video first ….

Pretty cool right? A special Thanks to LeAnne Greff for sharing her Designer Paper pattern with all of us. The Dandy Designs makes picking patterns pretty easy too, and the Sentimental Park bundle … is it on your Wish List now? I love sentiment stamp sets and the fact that we can create so many with this set is amazing, and I love dies that are not like all the rest.

Here is a “cheat sheet” so you can remember the cutting dimensions. Feel free to click on the image and download it so you can keep it in your files.

Between the video and the pattern, I hope you feel inspired enough to make some of these up yourself. I will share the rest of my color pallets with you the next few days but let’s get a better look at the ones I did last night …

On this card I only used 2 of the 4 patterns that I cut. I used the smaller of the two label dies with the flowers (it’s so cute) then I added the Fresh Freesia Opaque Adhesive Backed Gems and a swatch of the Fresh Freesia ribbon.

Next up is the cute flowers, you can use them separately, or layer them as I did …

I used the second smallest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies for my greeting on this card. Can you see the embossing on the flowers in the center… too cute.

Another card for you …..

This is the largest of the dies with the floral pieces on it. I also used the Opaque Adhesive-backed Gems on this card … they were right, but I used my Stampin’ Blends to color them so they popped on the die cut. I also added Wink of Stella to the flowers.

Now we’re going to use this die to cut a piece of Fresh Freesia ….

This one is special because we can tuck the solid die cut label and tuck it into the floral one … I flipped when I figured this out. Image this in whites, it would make a perfect wedding card. Add Gold and turn it into an anniversary card. The possibilities are endless … see why I fell in love with this amazing bundle!?

Love this cute cutting pattern, and trust me, you can use this pattern with any of your favorite designer papers. So I hope you go into your stamp room today and try it out. And if you fell in love with the Sentimental Park bundle, I have the link for you below … just click on it and you can have it in your stampin’ stash soon.

Thank you so much for hanging out with me today.

Creating beauty with Scrap paper … and a cute card!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m thrilled to share this beauty I created with scraps left over from tonight’s Facebook LIVE. It’s so cute! I’m using the Dandy Designs Designer paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog. I’ve got a really cute project planned for tonight’s LIVE so I hope you join me at 6:30 HERE.

So my scraps are 1″ wide and then I cut them down to 3-1/2″ in length so they would fit when I laid them out on my card. The colors are so bright and cheery and well … that Daisy returns (I think I am waiting impatiently for Spring!) or I just want to cheer up a friend and everything just goes together so nicely.

My greeting comes from the NEW Sentimental Park stamp set from the Jan-April Mini Catalog and is stamped in Coastal Cabana. I die cut my greeting with the largest of the banners from the Stylish Shapes dies, this is a great set of dies to have because there are the banners, circles and squares.

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you consider joining me tonight for my Facebook LIVE to see what I’m doing with the rest of that designer paper!!

Have a great day ~

Quick & Easy Dandy Designs Thank You Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have one more card from my quick & easy cut patterns I shared yesterday. It comes from the 4″ x 6″ pattern cut down to 5-1/4″ …. using the Dandy Designs as well and mounting it onto a Coastal Cabana cardbase.

The greeting comes from the Charming Sentiments stamp set and stamped with Coastal Cabana ink … I just cut the points off the square to create a look similar to the squares on the designer paper.

I punched 6 daisies out and layered them to create 3 flowers and added Coastal Cabana to the centers. These add so much dimension and texture to your card and they are cute!

Once those daisies are popped up with dimensionals, I added a little Wink of Stella to the centers to add a little sparkle. Not much else to say … this card is that simple, but will bring a smile to who ever receives it.

I think we all like making quick & cute cards ….

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week.

Simply Sunday: Quick & Easy Cards with the Dandy Designs Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ll share a few Quick & Easy cards that I created with the Dandy Designs Designer paper in the Sale-a-bration Catalog. The idea behind these creations is to “cut” your designer paper and use it! lol

We begin by cutting 4″ strips from our 12 x 12 Designer paper … then cut it in half (6″). From there we trim it down to 5-1/4″. This gives us a nice border around our card base, and that little left over piece can be used to decorate the inside of your card.

All of my cards have been embellished with the Medium Daisy Punch ….

With this quick & easy cut pattern, you can create 6 cards per sheet ….

This is just a representation of the cut pattern and NOT “exact” measurements.

Next up we have a 4″ x 4″ cut pattern with results in 9 cards per sheet. There are more ways to use both of these cut patterns. I’m just sharing the most popular / simple card designs. Also note that the peek of paper behind the designs cut is the reverse side of the these designer paper sheets.

This is just a representation of the cut pattern and NOT “exact” measurements.

On this card we are creating a card with the 4″ x 4″ square with a twist … We cut the square piece of designer paper diagonally … from corner to corner. Then you attach to card at opposite ends to create the “Split Card Technique”. How cool is that!

You can use this fun and easy technique with any designer paper but with 48 sheets in the Dandy Designs package you will have an endless supply of fun, and so many card possibilities. Dandy Designs is one of the choices in FREE merchandise during Sale-a-bration.

My last card also uses the 4″ x 4″ piece, however we trimmed it down a 1/4″ off the top and side so we could have a nice border around it …..

These quick & easy cards were all created during my LIVE presentation yesterday for my Catalog Launch party. I go LIVE on Tuesday Nights at 6:30 with New Products, Fun Folds or Techniques … always a fun time and great projects! Hope to see you there.

Thank you for stopping by this Sunday. Have a wonderful day ~
