Friday Fun Mash-Up Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ve got a Friday Fun Mash-Up Card. Now days they call it “Mash Up” but you and I know that we’ve been creating cards using multiple different stamp sets, dies and papers … it’s just what we do!

I have been wanting to use that cute Pale Papaya paper from the “Rain of Shine” Designer paper since I saw it … it is bright and makes me happy!! You can click on the link to view all patterns.

Isn’t it pretty!? It’s such happy paper, so it will be my card front because I want to highlight it. Next I have a leftover piece over die cut piece that I used on yesterday’s card that came from the Irresistible Blooms Bundle. I die cut that piece from the Naturally Gilded Specialty paper. Click to view!

And since the piece had silver in it and all those little dots … I draped it in Rhinestones! Because friends, you’re worth it!!

I decided to use the Daisy Punch because it is similar to the flowers on my paper and to me … they are happy flowers! For my centers … I punched out the daisy in Mango Melody and snipped off the petals, so if you look closely, they are not perfect circles.

The greeting comes from the Playing in the Rain stamp set and “punched” … yes, punched! If you go to my online store, you will find that the 1-3/4″ and 2″ punches are back. Check it out here.

It’s just been a bit gloomy here in Wisconsin so I thought this would be the perfect card to brighten someones day. And …. isn’t that why we send the cards we make?

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.

Have a “Fun” and “Happy” Friday ~

Hello, Irresistible suite & FUN and Easy Embossing Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~ Today I’m sharing the video replay of my Facebook LIVE and I’m highlighting the Hello, Irresistible suite and a FUN and Easy Embossing Technique. Then I’ll share an alternative design using Black Ink verses the White Embossed flowers you see in the video …

This suite is so fun to work with and the flowers … well, they are perfect for so many techniques. Embossing is one of my all time favorite techniques because it adds an elegance and texture to your cards, and when you combine it with a touch of ink … you get depth too.

I used the designer paper for the background and to cut out the leaves, so if you are used to embossing or die cutting, you will find this card pretty easy to recreate. Overall, I would give it a medium rating.

Now for the “Black” ink card. I used a lot of the same materials and the dauber technique as well. I cut the leaves out as I did on the first card but used the “other” awesome die in the bundle. Check this out …

The card base is Basic Black and cut 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″, and the second black piece is cut to 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ and then die cut with the circular die. The card front is Petal Pink (same as the small flower) and measures 4″ x 5-1/4″.

And this time I added the “purple” adhesive dots for my purple fans! Both card were fun to make and somewhat similar but they really look different! I love it 🙂

Hope you enjoyed today’s cards, and thanks to those who came over to my blog from Facebook to check it out.

Have a great day … Linda

Hello, Irresistible Suite Collection ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you ready for a beautiful new suite? Let me introduce you to our new OnLine Collection; Hello, Irresistible Suite Collection ….

Today I’d like to share the two cards that I created during my Facebook LIVE on Tuesday, unfortunately there will not be a video but I do have the cutting pattern for these two cards. I used one of the 6″ x 6″ sheets of designer paper from the Hello, Irresistible paper and cut it to create my new cards.

You will be able to CLICK on this photo and download the pattern for your personal use.

I used the 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of designer paper to create my first card. This layout I’m sharing is very easy yet the designer paper makes your card look stunning ….

The background “is” the designer paper, you don’t have to do anything but choose one of the sentiments from the Stamp Set! I used the Dual Oval punch to highlight the sentiment and stamped it in Flirt Flamingo … same color as my card base.

I used the Daffodil Delight Loose Frosted Dots … HINT: they really pop when you put them over “white”. I’m really liking these dots!

The second card uses the 5-1/4″ x 2″ piece … remember the 3/8″ strips are to be used on the inside of the card.

The second half of the Flirty Flamingo cardstock was used to this card base as well. I used Timeworn Type embossing folder to add texture behind our designer paper, there is also a pop of color – I used So Saffron cardstock behind it.

I popped up the designer paper piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then stamped my sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink and punched it out using the Lovely Me Punch.

Thanks for checking in with me today. This amazing Hello, Irresistible Suite Collection will be available March 1st, 2023.

Have a great day!
