Love you always!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I would love to share with you the cute card that I made using some of the Weekly Deals. If you would like to see them again CLICK HERE.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I think our “Hearts Border Punch” and “Something to Say” stamp sets are a great combination to have around! Let’s not forget the Envelope Paper … I’ve combined them all for today’s post  …

This card is dedicated to our dear friend Alice … We loved stamping with you, your sense of humor, and your wit. You will be deeply missed, and we know there is a special angel watching over us ❤

I started with the Envelope paper because it would help determine my color pallet … I chose the “Watermelon Wonder” for my card. At this point I pulled out the “Envelope Punch Board” because I not only used the paper for my card but created a matching envelope. How fun is that!

Next I punched a strip of hearts with the “Hearts Border” punch and decided to put a strip of “Dazzling Diamonds” Glimmer paper behind it … gotta love that sparkle!

With so many greeting types in the “Something to Say” you think it would have been hard to chose from, but I was focusing on Valentine’s so the “love you always” was easy. It has a coordinating stamp “big ways, small ways” that I stamped on the inside of my card.

The little heart also comes in the “Something to Say” stamp set and I stamped that on the front greeting and on the inside of my card. On the front I added “Crystal Effects” to my heart and then sprinkled it with some “Dazzling Diamonds” while it was still wet … LOVE that effect!!

I finished off my card with a simple bow made from the 1/4″ White Cotton Ribbon. It’s so easy to use and I keep plenty on hand because it goes with everything!

Simply Sunday … Walk in the Wild 2

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  I got to spend some time with my granddaughter and my sister Eileen.  Yes stampers … we are planning an event, and as soon as I lock down the location, I will send you the details.  It’s going to be fun & exciting!!!  Tentative date: Thursday, May 28th.

Today is day 2 of my “Walk in the Wild” card share … I went pretty masculine on this one.  I am really going to miss this set! I love, love, love the moose.

I wanted something simple, yet a bit different from the textured embossing folders, so I went “old school” and crumpled up my “Baked Brown Sugar” cardstock, cut the edges, and then sponged it … to age it.  I love the warm color of the Baked Brown Sugar against the richness of the Early Espresso…. it even looks better in hand!

Next I stamped my moose with the StazOn™ Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, and did a color wash over the entire piece.  Just a little ink in the tray of the ink pad and my “Aqua Painters” and your done in mere minutes!

My greeting comes from the”Something to Say” stamp set … then I cut it into a banner, curled up the edges … sponged it (to age it) and then anchored it with an “Antique Brad”.  I used a Blendabilities pen (some of you are still using yours) or you can use a sharpie, to tone down the color a bit.

This angle shows the dimension in the card … I popped up the moose, the greeting, and the brad with my Stampin’ Dimensionals.  TIP: Use your craft scissors to cut the tines off the brad so it lays evenly on your project.

Hope you enjoyed today’s manly moose … and don’t forget to stop back tomorrow to view the last card from my “Walk in the Wild” series.

Remember, it is retiring so you will need to purchase it before the end of this month.  Just click the link I have posted for you below in my “Stampin’ Supply List”.
