Five Colors, Five Cards … 5X the fun!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m excited to share today’s 5 cards with you … YES, 5 cards! Since I shared the beautiful In Color ribbons yesterday, I thought you would enjoy these ribbons used yet again! I’ve got a great way for you to make sweet -n- simple cards that really showcase the pretty In Colors.

Let’s begin with a card kit … the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Cards & Envelopes. These cute cards come in our new 2020-2022 In-Colors, and look … the envelopes are already decked out for us!!

I love these card bases for quick and easy cards. There are 2 each of 5 2020–2022 In Colors. 10 printed card bases and 10 printed envelopes. Discover Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight.

I think the Polka dots are cute so I didn’t want to hide them so my first layer … usually Whisper White measures 4″ by 3″ and fits nicely inside my polka dots. To add a touch of color I will add the coordinating In Color 6 x 6 Designer paper pack and the ribbon. For some fun … we’ll use some of the punches we have. Let’s begin ….

My first card highlights the Misty Moonlight, so what better to start with than the “Cat” punch ….

My apologies for using the “retired” moon & stars … Looks like I need to check my catalog a little closer, but it does look nice with our Cat silhouette. I colored the polka dots with my Stampin’ Blends … one touch and they were “Bumble Bee”. I also used it on the envelope (and a ruler to guide me)

The next card highlights the Just Jade and the “Pine Tree” punch …

I punched the tree from two different patterns, added the ribbon with a bow (it is Christmas) and our greeting comes from the “Arrange a Wreath” stamp set. I used this stamp set for the rest of my cards today.

The third card brings us into Spring and the Magenta Madness …

I used the “Heart Punch Pack” to create this card… the scallop heart is punched in the Magenta Madness cardstock and the other heart is punched from the In Color 6 x 6 Designer paper pack. I also changed the layout from horizontal to vertical … they can be used either way.

I also switched up my ribbon from a simple bow to two lines of ribbon. Ribbon is the perfect way to add texture and color to your projects at a budget friendly price … there is a lot of ribbon on those bolts!!

My fourth card uses the ribbon in a similar fashion, more to dress up the card than to create a bow …

Talk about a simple card … I took the “sun” embellishment out of this months Paper Pumpkin kit! It’s cute and matches perfectly. The Paper Pumpkins are designed to coordinate with other products … and the stamp set, you guessed it – also from this kit! Each month you get an “Exclusive” stamp set that you’ll have around whenever you need it.

The fifth and final card today celebrates both the Bumblebee and the Cinnamon Cider …

I used both Daisy punches to create a sunflower and both the Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider ribbon to create a pop of color and texture. The greeting is again from the “Arrange a Wreath” stamp set.

So, as you can see with the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Cards & Envelopes as your base and a little designer paper, ribbon and punches you can create “Simple yet Stunning” cards for all occasions!

Doesn’t that look like a mailbox full of fun! I hope I inspired you to start creating, and use some of those items you have in your collection to make something fresh and new.

Thank you for spending a part of your day with me. Stop back tomorrow I’ll have more goodies for you. If you like what you saw today, feel free to leave me a quick note below or hit the LIKE button.

Creating Unique Cards with Ribbon & Punches

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ll be sharing my creations from last nights Facebook Live along with the video, and the “new” card that I talked about in my video. These unique cards turned out so cute … it’s amazing the things you can do with ribbon and some punches!

Grab a cup of coffee and kick back while you enjoy the video …

Oh my gosh … that is so easy and such a fun way to create with ribbons. and it adds so much texture to a card. Here is a close up of the cards …

The dimensions for the squares I used were as I stated in the video … The piece that I put the ribbon on was 3″ x 3″, the punched square is 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ and the colored mat is 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″.

Above the mat color is Bumble Bee and below is the Magenta Madness …

I like sharing the close up pictures with you after the video so you can get a better look at the cards. They really turned out cute! Now I’m sure you want to see what I did with the gold edged Red & Green ribbon …

I wanted to take a different approach to this card, so instead of using the reverse punched area … I’m using the actual punch, Pine Tree punch to be exact. Then I framed it … both items were done in the Gold Foil paper which is also on the retiring list (along with the butterfly and Pine tree punches).

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to stop back tomorrow because I have 5 cards that highlight the In Color Ribbon and more.

Have an amazing day ~

Our Friendship Card …

Hello Stamping Friends ~

Today I would like to share with you a card using the retiring Beauty Abounds stamp set.  When I saw it … I had to have it. My Mom loved butterflies so every time I see one … I think of her. This way she is always around me.

I must say … this card is much more beautiful in the hand! We used the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Combo for coloring our flowers and butterfly and then the Olive and Granny Apple Green for a beautiful contrast on our leaves.  The secret to the leaves is to color the dark first. then go over it with the brighter Granny Apple Green.

The beautiful greeting was die cut using the Layering Circle Framelits, and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals … as was the butterfly.  We added just a touch of the Wink of Stella (not visible on the photo) in the center of our flowers and then gently over our butterfly to give it a hint of sparkle but not overpower.  We also added some Rhinestones which were colored with the Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends.

The inside was stamped and colored just as the front with a touch of our Wink of Stella as well.  It is amazing how the touch of Stella can transform a card.  You can see from this angle that not only did we pop up the greeting and butterfly, but the entire front as well.

I had a few more of these to make (for those who missed club) … YES, I make up the samples for my Club participants as long as they have their orders and payment in before class.  I wouldn’t want them to miss out on the amazing cards we do.

Anyway … I love coloring with the Stampin’ Blends; coloring in general, it is relaxing and soothing for the soul. My quiet and reflective time.

Thank you so much for stopping back today, I hope your day is filled with “A Million Little Wonderful Things”.

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

Bouquet of Roses … Three Techniques!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! With the retirement list in full swing and my Catalog Retirement Party coming up this weekend, I will be focusing some of my favorite “retiring” products this week. Today I’d like to share the “To A Wild Rose” Stamp set.

There are so many different ways you can use this versatile stamp set, I thought I’d share 3 different techniques with you.  The first is the “Three-step Stamping” technique …

You begin with the most solid of the three images … this one gets the lightest color, or in my case … I “stamped off” to lighten the Daffodil Delight.  Then the second image is stamped with full color, and the last and most detailed stamp, I used Crushed Curry.  You can see the three layers as it gives our flower highlights and lowlights!!

On my “True Friendship” card, I used the technique of sponging color onto the image ….

I used the detailed image not only to stamp my flower that was sponged, but my background!  I love doing “color on color” and on this card I’m using the Basic Gray.  I think that Gray and Pink are so pretty together.

My last of the three card features the “Coloring with Stampin’ Blends” technique …

Before I decided how my card would look, I chose my color pallet; Basic White and Highland Heather. I stamped the rose image with the Momento ink and began to color it with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Duo. I begin by coloring a petal with the light marker, then add the dark marker at the part of the petal that is closest to the center and over the lines in the rose. Then I go back over the dark with the lighter marker to blend the colors … you can always add a little more dark again. I leave the edges of the petals as light as I can.

The center is colored with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Marker and then the rose is die cut.  The leaves cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  The lattice piece was cut in Whisper White and Highland Heather and then layered to create an added dimension to the card.  The white base was stamped with the “Hello” from the stamp set and then the entire piece was embossed using the “Subtle” Folder.

Have you fallen in love with this amazing stamp set yet?  I find it so versatile and easy to use. Don’t forget that the “To A Wild Rose” coordinates with the Wild Rose Die Set.

Thank you for joining me today. Let me know if you have any questions on the cards shared today.

Hope your day is filled with beauty … pass it on.

Simply Sunday: Laser Perfect

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a card I made with the Laser cut paper from the Dandy Garden Suite. So pretty and so easy to make!

Let’s take a look at today’s card …

I began with the Laser cut piece and layered it over the stunning Fine Art Floral Designer Series paper from the Mini Catalog. I chose the pattern that looks like brush strokes of a painting … I thought it created a beautiful background to my laser cut paper. This front piece was layered with dimensionals onto a piece of Mango Melody which I cut a small piece off and split it apart to create some added dimension and creates a simple but fun twist to the card!

The greeting comes from the “Heal Your Heart” stamp set (already retired) I used the Everyday Label Punch to highlight the greeting, I then put on a few Rhinestones and popped it up with dimensionals. I love the layering on this simple card … it really helps bring it to life!

I like to share our retiring products so you can get one last look before it retires. If you want to see more, and have some fun … Join me at my Catalog Retirement Party this coming weekend. Here is the link CLICK HERE to request membership into our Private Party Group!!

Have a wonderful day and Thank You for joining me today.

Christmas Layers Dies, Not just for Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am sharing cards were created with the Christmas Layers Dies. These were paired with the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set … both of these items are retiring, and I’m taking a look back to share with you some cute cards in case these are on your retiring Wish List!

 

I wanted to show the different elements of the stamp set and dies to demonstrate how versatile this bundle is.

The first card is bursting with holiday flair and is decked out in gold.  The floral pattern really highlights the greeting and ties in the gold throughout the card so nicely. The Shades Spruce and Cherry Cobbler look so regal … You can use the Plaid Tidings Designer paper which is currently on our Clearance Rack!

Here is another sample that highlights the floral dies cuts … I love these, they actually look more like a metal embellishment than a die cut piece of cardstock!! They also used the die cut image to create a fun background on this card.

My second card is so different from the first in that we have created our own “Shimmer” paper by spritzing the beautiful Seaside Spray from our 2019 – 2021 In Color collection.  For a little more sparkle, the snowflakes are cut from the Sparkle Shimmer Paper! But wait … there is one more layer of sparkle when I added the Rhinestones to the snowflakes.

This card is just simply elegant and done with White and Silver … and yes, graced with a touch of glitter. Instead of die cutting the image and adhering it to the base as I did in the first card, I actually cut it out of the front and used it to impose a second layer to the card… stunning.

I have another samples the highlights the foliage die …

If you didn’t know these cards were from the same stamp set/dies … you might not know that they were!  Oh wait … I have one more project that can be created with these stunning dies.

Each of these cards/projects were done with the Christmas Layers Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. I have “one more” card sample for you below!!

Thanks for checking in with me today … meet you back here tomorrow.

Have some fun today!

Gear Up for Retiring Stamps …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your week so far. I’ve been busy having fun planning and creating more cards for my upcoming stamping events; the Retirement Party and then in May, the New Catalog Launch Party. First, lets talk retiring products, and today I have a masculine card to share …

Our masculine card today is designed from the Geared Up Garage stamp set and Garage Gear dies. Not only is it a great masculine card but it’s an “Easel” Fold card. The color pallet is simple: Real Red, Basic Black and Silver… oh yes, and a little Whisper White.

The amazing Garage Gear dies not only cut out the gears but emboss them so they have detail and texture which really jazzes up the card. Everything you need to start working on your cars are included in this duo.

Let’s take a look at another card. This is a fun “guy” card … the background was created with the stamps included in the set and really look like a stained garage floor!!

The greeting comes from the Geared Up Garage stamp set and was punched with the Tailored Tag Punch. I punched a second piece out and cut it in half so I could create a mat.

The silver strips were scrap pieces I used to highlight my greeting and my car … nice masculine card, or a girl who is into nice cars! Love me a classic.

I hope you enjoyed today’s masculine card using the Easel Fold. Now for the some fun upcoming events ….

Thanks so much for hanging out with me today. I appreciate the company!

Have a wonderful day ~

True Love Gate Fold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a “Fun Fold” for you!! This gate fold has a bit of a twist … I invite you to sit back and watch my video on “how to” made this beautiful card.

You will also get to hear a few announcements in the video… Enjoy.

With a few simple steps, it makes this card fun and easy to make … I hope you enjoyed the stampin’ tips to make your card making more “full proof”, so you don’t make those silly mistakes.

I love using the “edges” of my floral designer paper as part of my cards … usually on the inside, to decorate. I think it adds a nice touch and you don’t waste paper!

It almost looks like a stamped image, but it is the True Love Designer Series paper… this beautiful paper will be retiring (in June). I hope you enjoyed today’s card and inspires you to try out this cool Gate Fold Card.

Thank you for hanging out with me today. I’ll be back tomorrow with something new (or old … on the retiring list)!

Enjoy your day !

Always on My Mind

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I’m late with today’s post … I got carried away cleaning out my stamp room yesterday!! I’ve been pulling out all my sets that are going to retire 😦 and making room for the NEW ones to join the current remaining sets! 🙂 Today, I have another card from the UNDER MY UMBRELLA stamp set and coordinating punch … as promised.

I teamed up this bundle with some darling designer paper found in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer paper … specialty because it has “gold foil” designs (I’ll share that another day). I’ve also used the Triple Banner punch – also retiring … on today’s card.

You will see the discounted products at the end of my post – we’ve got some pretty good savings for you!

Take a look at the flowers on the stamp set … don’t you think the look similar to the flowers on this pattern paper? Me too!! So, I thought they would go perfectly together …

My apologies … the camera did not do this card justice!! The colors are actually Old Olive and the retiring Terracotta Tile and the designer paper is much prettier too.

I stamped the umbrella onto the designer paper and punched it out … I punched out a 2″ circle with the “retiring” 2″ Circle Punch to create the focal point … the umbrella. I also fussy cut a few of the flowers and placed them around the card to draw your eye around the entire card.

I used my Terracotta Tile marker to dye my white Bakers Twine and added it to the top of my banner. I stamped my greeting underneath my focal point … the umbrella. I chose this greeting because today is my Mom’s birthday, and I think of her “rain or shine”. She is truly missed.

I want to “Thank You” for hanging out, stopping back and checking out my post today. I hope you have a beautiful Sunday ~

April Showers, Brings Loves Flowers ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing a card that I made from the “Under My Umbrella” stamp set … it was a must have on my Wish List. It was the little “boots” that got me. Now my friends, it is on the retiring list. I’m going to miss this little beauty.

Today’s card was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.  She used the small hearts paper from the “From the Heart” Specialty Designer paper, I used the same… although this paper is retired, just think of all the pretty paper you have in your stash … or that are in the catalog just waiting to get into your hands! I did change the orientation and a few other things on the original card to make it my own ….

This is one of the cards that my February Stamp Club made … This card highlights the Under My Umbrella stamp set and introduces the Umbrella Builder Punch. Great News; the Umbrella Builder punch is currently ON SALE!! I have the list of ingredients below so you can check it out there. Here is the the cute Under My Umbrella stamp set ….

Shower your loved ones in good wishes and flowers with the Under My Umbrella Stamp set. Line art images are fun to color and easy to customize for any occasion. The greetings in the stamp set work perfectly for thinking of you, sending love, wedding, or baby projects. Stamp the raindrop or flower images repeatedly to create backgrounds. You can also use them to decorate the umbrellas or the rain galoshes.

We used the stamp set and Real Red ink to stamp onto our designer paper.  We then punched out our umbrella and trimmed it to the stamped lines.  Then we punched an umbrella and handle out of Real Red cardstock and used it to mat the designer paper punched umbrella.  The little boots were fussy cut and then colored with the Real Red Marker.

The greeting and floral stamps were stamped with Momento Ink and colored with our Stampin’ Write Markers (see colors below). Our greeting was punched using the Pretty Label Punch, but again … you can use one you have at home, or we have some great ones in the catalog. I stamped two so I could use the Real Red as my mat.  Rain was stamped in Smoky Slate.

I wish I could tell you the talented demonstrator who inspired me to make this card but her link was not working properly, in other words, it did not direct me to her site. I just had her verbiage translated and discovered it was German.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card … I have another to share with the Under My Umbrella again tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by ~

Beautiful Cards … just add Lace!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I am excited to share a few cards with you today. It’s from the A Little Lace bundle and it just shouts “HELLO SPRING!!” This is another of my favorites that is on the retiring list. I love the whimsical floral pattern in the stamp set and the detailed die that coordinates …

The sentiments in the set are perfect for all occasions! Take a look at the die and you will see the amazing detail, and today I’ll share different ways in which you can use it.

Let’s begin with a card the showcases the detail of the die. This die normally sells for $35.00 BUT is now ONLY $14.00 – can’t beat that!! This is one of the first cards that I had made with this bundle ….

I used the lace die on the entire front of my card. I had a little fun with this card … I actually “cut” the bottom edge off the card front, and glued it onto what normally would be the inside!! When the card is closed is looks like a normal card, but what a fun surprise when ti’s opened.

For my second card … Nothing brings the thought of warm more than our Daffodil Delight … bright like a daffodil standing tall in the sunshine. I’m featuring both the stamps and the die on this card to really highlight a unique way to use them …

I cut the lace die cut … you can actually get 2 squares cut out of the lace die cut. I backed my Daffodil Delight lace square with Whisper White. The lace design allows the white to peek through which really highlights the pattern.

Here is another card showcasing the stamp set and dies, along with a note card that illustrates the use of just a strip of the die … that is what the skinny die is for!! Cool right! These cards were created by Stampin’ Up! and are in the current catalog … I use the catalog for inspiration all the time …

Just like sunshine … I needed a little sparkle so I painted a little Wink of Stella onto the petals. Not to be outdone, the centers were colored with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and then I went over the top with the Shimmery Crystal Effects … and yes, I even sprinkled glitter over the top of that!!

Thank you for joining me today, I will be back tomorrow with another beautiful card. See you then.

Have an amazing day ~

Here is the list of basic ingredients used to create these cards. Please note that the “Stitched Lace Dies” are ON SALE for ONLY $14.00. You may click on any item for more information and/or begin your shopping. Thank you

The Floating & Fluttering Butterfly bundle … Retiring

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share the beauty of the Floating & Fluttering Bundle… my heart sank when I saw this on the retiring list, because that means I have a limited time to share this bundle with you! This amazing stamp and die set can create beautiful cards. Not only will I share the cards, but videos to show you how to make them.

Let’s begin with the simple “floating” butterflies …

The video will explain step by step how easy it is to create this beautifully textured card, and how I colored the butterflies.

The next card I’d like to share again is the Joseph’s Coat technique. This technique is really pretty simple yet it creates a stunning effect …

I used a little bit of a twist on this card, the wonderful “Blending Brushes”. You will fall in love with the magic of Joseph’s Coat and the pop of color this creates …

Isn’t this a fun and magic technique!! Think of the colors you could use … Your friends will be amazed when they receive your card.

They will be equally amazed at the next technique …. the Floating Frame Technique!

The Floating Frame Technique; it takes a little patience but as my friend Olivia said “I like that you get 2 cards for your effort- and they both look great! I will be trying these cards soon. Also I love press n seal- use it a lot in the kitchen and for things around the house. Never thought to use it for stamping so that just blew my mind! Thanks for the tip”

Let’s take a look at the “Floating Frame” Technique …

I hope you enjoyed this showcase of cards & videos that highlight the Floating & Fluttering Bundle and some of the cool techniques that really embrace it. But don’t stop here, there are more right here on this blog, just put Floating & Fluttering Bundle in the search box. You will find the video’s on My YOUTUBE Channel.

Then … if you decide you would like to purchase this bundle from me, I will invite you into my Facebook Classroom where I have 3 more stunning cards (with Step by Step video featuring all 3 cards and PDF – Written Directions with Photos) Use Hostess Code: JWHA6EMK This will be open until the end of April. You can also CLICK THIS LINK! to get your bundle.

Thank you so very much for hanging out with me today.

Have a great day ~

Field of Flowers: Retiring

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share a pretty bundle that I think has so much potential for creating amazing cards. First, we’ll start with a quick and simple card with the Field of Flowers bundle and then share a “stepped up” version! Today I’d like to share a few tips & techniques you can used to step it up a bit! Here is my simple stamping card ….

The heartfelt greetings and beautiful images of meadows, flowers and a dragonfly allow you to express your feelings of friendship & love. It’s fun to pair with the Confetti Punch to create layered images of blossoms.

Today’s card is layered and I borrowed a sheet of the designer paper from the Forever Fern suite to begin. I added dimension in my greeting by stamping the “Thinking of you” on the Garden Green cardstock this time.

I wanted to change up the look of the designer paper, so I ran it through my embossing machine using the Subtle Embossing Folder … stunning!! It adds a subtle texture which really changed the look of the background … try it!

My card front is now smaller and the focal point on the card. I switched out the Daffodil Delight for the new In Color Bumblebee which gave me the opportunity to add the delightful ribbon that coordinates so nicely. No need to add rhinestones today … I did not want to detract from the overall look of the card.

If you look closely … you will see a “double layer” of stamping on the greens, this added depth and a slight change of color, even though I’m still using the Garden Green … I just didn’t re-ink my stamp. And “no” dragonflies on this card either.

It’s amazing what a little “steppin’ it up” can do for your card. Both are pretty … It all comes down to “your style of stamping”. Isn’t that beautiful?

Thank you so much for stopping back to visit with me today.

Have a beautiful day ~
