SU Petal Palette Blue Bird

February 9, 2018

My chickadee has turned blue on this card…he’s kinda like a chameleon.
He turns any color I want him to…

I was earning to use some Night of Navy, and I thought Daffodil Delight would pop right of the dark background.
I just colored the beautiful images found in the Petal Palette stamp set with my Stampin’ Blends
and added in some cute little Perfect White Accents.
Don’t you just love that lacy element and the sentiment die cut that comes in the Petals and More Thinlits?

For my northern friends…
Think spring- flowers and birds- just like the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #136 is this week…

SU Apron of Love

February 7, 2018

 Claire has a Valentine theme this week at The Paper Players # 379.

I think Valentine’s Day should be celebrated every day and in every way!
Let’s never miss an opportunity to share our love with a special thanks to a friend!

I made another checkered bottom on my card but this time with a white background! Just adhere five 3/4″ black squares to the bottom of the Whisper White 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel. I used a lot of the dies from the Apron Builder Framelits for this card- the apron, the neck strap, the waist ties, the oven mitt, the pockets, the baking utensils, the trim on the bottom of the apron, and even the hearts. What a super bundle! I think this card can be unisex, too.  Add in those BBQ tools- the classic red and black fits both guys and gals! Just stamp DAD on the apron, and you have a Valentine for him or a Father’s Day card!

Those sweet little hearts go with the SU Only Challenges #193 Hearts a Plenty
so I am sharing it over there, too:)

SU Bubble Over with Sale-a-Bration Bubble and Fizz DSP

January 10, 2018

I saw this cute idea from Sarah Klass using the friend die cut from Lovely Words
with the pop bottles in the SU Bubble Over stamp set.

The idea stuck in my head and came to life on my desk a week or so ago so we made it at our Kick Off Luncheon last weekend. I used the FREE Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper (DSP) behind my die cut and cut the straws from vellum…or invisible paper it seemed as we played with it at our luncheon…lol.

It was easy to create a bright palette for my card since I just pulled the colors from the DSP- Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral. I used some retired Bermuda Bay baker’s twine to add some texture. I used the negative of the larger bottle die on the inside and popped in a cute little label.

The Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper is just perfect with the Bubble Over Bundle. Not only does it have designs with pop bottles/pop caps but also designs with stripes/geometric shapes that can work with any stamp set.
And the best part of it…it is a FREE Sale-a-Bration item with a $50 Sale-a-Bration order!!!

SU Painted Harvest

 

September 15, 2017

I think this may be the hottest item in the new catalog!

~The Painted Harvest Bundle~

My stamping girls certainly loved it at class last week!

A few gals actually said the DSP was missing in their kits. then I showed them how they were going to make it! However, there is an absolutely beautiful sunflower patterned paper in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper🙂

Have you seen all the combinations of colors- yellows, purples, blues-that people have been using on Pinterest?  We used this color combination at our Demo meeting- Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Early Espresso for the flowers and  Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green for the leaves. To add a little more detail, my friend Linda Heller had us slide a Soft Sky ink spot over the Very Vanilla cardstock before we stamped.

It was super easy to create this fun fold card- just cut off 1-1/4″ of the Early Espresso card base and then…use it for the banner! No waste- ask my girls, I always show them how to get the most out of their cardstock! I used the coordinating leaf punch that comes in the bundle to punch out the leaves for the banner. The 1/4″ Copper Trim finished the banner off wonderfully! Oh, and we jazzed it up with some Wink of Stella on the flower centers.

Here’s a story of  how God is in the details- I was going to a Girlfriend’s Luncheon last Sunday that my most precious friend Donna has every year. I wanted to give her something to let her know she is appreciated far more than any thing or any words can express. I happened to be out and picked up this sweet watering can of greens and flowers as an example of how she is just “pure sunshine” to anyone who meets her. When I got home, I decided I was going to make her a card with the Painted Harvest stamp set. Little did I realize that this one matched perfectly in color, style, and occasion! I mean, so perfect that I should take some cards down to that shop to go with the gift!!!

 

A little tip using this two step stamping stamp set- I found it easier to stamp the dark flower first than the lighter one even though the lighter one is bigger. I also stamped the veined darker green leaf first, too. It was much easier to see the dark ink and stamp the light ink on top of it. I have heard people suggest stamping the middle of the flower first but did not want to risk not having room for the petals and leaves later.

I also masked off  a bit of the leaf stem by rubbing ink off with my finger so the leaves appear to be coming out from under the sunflower- your choice it looks great either way:)

SU Dragonfly Dreams Bundle Inlay Technique

March 13, 2017

We made this card at our Dragonfly Dreams Product Class this month.

It uses an inlay technique.

  • First, I stamped the three blue swoshes from the Work of Art stamp set in Soft Sky, Marina Mist, and Dapper Denim ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock.
  • I then die cut the string of dragonflies out of that stamped panel and set it aside.
  • I then die cut two more strings of dragonflies from two more pieces of Thick Whisper White cardstock.
  • I adhered the stamped panel with the “hole” left from the dragonflies to a same sized piece of Whisper White cardstock to close up the “hole.”
  • Next, I inlaid one of the whites strings of dragonflies into the “hole” using dabs of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
  • I layered another white string of dragonflies onto the first white inlaid string.
  • Then I finished off the technique by adhering the die cut blue dragonflies on top of the two white strings of white dragonflies.

 It has a neat layered effect on the card. I hope you can see it here:

It is hard to see but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the swooshes and a few scattered rhinestones.
A few stamps of the dots on the top and bottom finish off the inside of the card:)
