Two a Wild Rose Trio …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you’re loving the “To A Wild Rose” bundle … I have a great offer for you! This has been posted before and I just wanted to remind everyone that if you purchase the “TO A WILD ROSE” bundle from me by August 31st, 2019, I will send you all 3 cards with directions and tips to recreate them yourself!! You will also receive a Virtual Rewards point!! You get a Rewards point for each $50 (before ship&taxes) USE HOSTESS CODE: ARQ3KZ9U and place your order by August. 31st. 2019. Cards are ready and will ship as soon as I get your order notification! 

The “True Friendship” card is done with the basic stamping technique of “Color on Color” … I love going back to the basics sometimes, then the technique of sponging color onto the image really adds a soft beautiful touch to the card ….

Today, my “Hello” card features the “Coloring with Stampin’ Blends” technique …

Before I decided how my card would look, I chose my color pallet; Whisper 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 bundle yet?  I find it so versatile and easy to use. How would you like these cards?

I have a SPECIAL OFFER FOR YOU …

Bouquet of Roses … Three Techniques!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … we made it half way through the week and we are quickly heading into the weekend! I love Thursdays 🙂  Today I have the card I promised to share with you (from yesterdays post) with yet another technique using the To A Wild Rose Bundle.

On Monday I shared the “Blessed” card demonstrating the Three-step Stamping technique …

On Tuesday I showed you the “True Friendship” card and the technique of sponging color onto the image ….

Today, my “Hello” card features the “Coloring with Stampin’ Blends” technique …

Before I decided how my card would look, I chose my color pallet; Whisper 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.

Simply Sunday: Peek Through Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today we’re pulling out the BigShot to create our Simply Sunday card, which features the Peek Through technique.  This is the technique my Technique Clubs learned this month and this is one of their cards.

It’s a done in our Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White, in fact, we are using the “thick” Whisper White for today’s technique card. Our base is in the Sweet Sugarplum and our Thick Whisper White is our 4″ x 5-1/4″ front.

000_4077

We are using the Special Reasons bundle found on page 42 of the Occasions Catalog. These special dies create our “Peek Through” by cutting the flower without cutting the edge so it gives you an almost negative image and allows you to see through to the back ground. It also comes with an outline die that will cut out the same flower … so it gives you two uses!

We used the Precision plate with our flower die and placed it onto our thick cardstock and rolled it through. It cut out beautifully and easily releases the pieces, however if you have the die brush you can use that to hurry the process of removing the pieces.

You can see from this camera angle that the entire white front piece has been popped up which creates a wonderful dimension to the flower and the card.

000_4076

The greeting comes from the Suite Sentiments stamp set found on page 54 of the Occasions catalog … you’ve seen me use this stamp set many times.  Did you know that the fonts in this stamp set coordinate with fonts from some of the other Occasions stamp sets! Good to know 🙂

The ribbon is the coordinating Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon and is used as an anchor to the card. Then just a touch of bling was added to draw your eye around the entire card, and it really completes it.

Thank you so much for joining me this Sunday,

I hope you have a wonderful day.

Simply Sunday: Softly Falling Snow

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Welcome to my Simpy Sunday series … this is one of my favorite days to post. I love being able to show you how beautiful a simple, easy to make card can be.

Today our card begins with the new “Thick” Whisper White cardstock… it’s just a bit sturdier than our regular Whisper White but still easy to use.

000_2776

My card front is a embossed with the “Softly Falling” textured embossing folder that can be found on page 24 of the Holiday Catalog. I then popped it up with dimensionals … I like to do that when I make a card with white on white.

000_2771

The pretty little snowflake is one of our “Snowflake Elements” embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. On Friday I share that this technique is the one our Technique clubs did this month … so much fun. It was topped off with a Rhinestone.

The title or greeting “snow” comes from the framelit set “Seasonal Frame” and was cut from the beautiful Silver Glimmer paper.

I hope you had a nice weekend, and I thank you for sharing part of it with me.

Have a great day ~

Cool Technique with Embossing Folders!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am excited that the weekend is here, and today I kick off a new season of my Stampin’ Technique Clubs. Our September technique will focus on different ways you can use your embossing folders… and I chose the new “Woodland” folder.

Today I will show you something fun to do with your folders (they’ll make 2 more!) I can’t show them to you yet because it will spoil their fun. I began my card by embossing the trees using Soft Sky cardstock

000_2528

Using the “White Stampin’ Chalk Marker” – I colored the trees and branches to highlight them even more. Wow … it looks so cool and it’s so easy to do!!

I colored in the indented areas of the tree with my Soft Suede marker to coordinate with the base of my card. Don’t you think it makes the tree more realistic looking? I love White Birch … I think it’s my favorite tree!

000_2530

I added a simple greeting (I think this one got past my purging of discontinued sets) and then added one of the new “Snowflake Elements” to add texture and continue the “woodland” feel of the card.

I didn’t want a lot of glimmer on this card, so I added just a touch with a rhinestone in the center of the wooden snowflake. You could easily add glitter to the branches to create a shimmery snow effect!

000_2525

What a simple way to make an impact (the WOW effect) on your card… just by coloring the embossed area.  Hope you enjoyed today’s technique tip!

Thank you for taking time to visit with me today.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend ~

 The pumpkins were stamped with the Pumpkin Pie and topped off with the Old Olive marker.  The faces were done in StazOn.  I also sponged Pumpkin Pie on the pumpkins so the lines weren’t so obviously white.

My greeting was highlighted with the use of the Word Bubble Framelit dies… It’s a great stamp set!  I’d love to help you earn it 🙂

Stop back tomorrow, I will share a card featuring the “Good Greetings” stamp set and “Festival of Tree’s” stamp set from the Holiday catalog .
