Live Happy & Enjoy the Weekly Deals …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today’s card share is a reflection of what I showed you the past two days.  I also have the NEW weekly deals listed for you today.  I am using the “You’re Lovely” Sale-a-bration stamp set, and a similar layout as I did yesterday… like I did for the fab four.

This simple technique of using similar layouts to produce a different looking card can make our busy lives much easier.  I know some of you love to sit and create – others like the simple, easy to recreate cards.  That is why stamping is so much fun, you can do it your way!

I changed my color pallet from yesterdays Basic Black, Real Red and Very Vanilla, to Island Indigo, Pool Party and Whisper White.  I am using the “Quarterfancy” Designer Specialty Paper (left over from the fab four).

I used the floral stamp today, along with the “Live Happy” greeting that comes in the “You’re Lovely” stamp set.  This was stamped in Black StazOn.  I used my “Blender Pens” and the Pool Party ink pad to color in the flowers.  The greeting was stamped in Island Indigo.

The stamped image and the Island Indigo mat where cut out with the “Deco Labels Collection” framelits.  I can’t believe that I did not have this collection of framelits!  The entire piece was popped up using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished off my card by embellishing with the Pearls.  I love the string of pearls, it makes embellishing your card so easy!  You saw me wrap them all around the oval on the baby card from the “Fab Four” post.

Lovely & Lace

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you have a “fab”ulous weekend!  Thanks so much for the comments and for sharing my blog!  Please … feel free to share with all your friends, that is what stamping is all about, a collection of fun, creative minds.

On January 29th, I introduced that stamp set “You’re Lovely”, from the Sale-a-bration catalog and said that it coordinates with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits (and that I would be ordering them).  Well … they have arrived and I got a chance to use them this weekend.  I don’t know how I got along without them – they work nicely with our circle punches too!

I used the same stamp as I did in January, but will be sure to make more for you with the others.  I then cut it out with the Deco Labels Framelit and also cut a mat from Basic Black.

I wanted the pretty flowers to pop, so I used the Real Red ink pad and a Blender Pen to color them in.  I went over the greenery with the “Wild Wasabi” Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I wanted to use some Designer Series Paper for my card and decided to use the “Modern Medley” … I think it suits this stamp nicely.

Next I wanted to add a touch of lace, but with the light background and the polka dots, it was a bit hard to see.  So, I decided to thread a pop of color in it.  There is a definite pattern in the lace ribbon so I used that for the spacing of the weave.

I used the needle from the “Heartfelt Banner Kit” – the end of the needle is not sharp but still goes through the lace.  Once you get the ribbon up to the lace, you just wiggle it through sideways.  It’s a bit tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, it goes pretty good.  I also tied a bow (the fork bow) and attached it with Glue Dots.

To finish off my card, I felt I need something at the bottom … so I colored my Pearls with a Black Sharpie Marker (permanent marker) and added them to the bottom to balance out the card.  I also added 2 to the greeting to complete the look.  I love black pearls!  In fact, you can have whatever color you want … Sharpie makes a variety of colors.
