Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Bundle

June 2020

I finally used my Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Bundle that carried over as a bundle in the NEW 2020-2021 catalog! I did a clean and simple card for a test run…

The Card base is the NEW Misty Moonlight. Seaside Spray looks so beautiful with it, don’t you think? Going with more subtle colors, I chose Pear Pizzazz as my green and Very Vanilla as my neutral. I have not used Very Vanilla in a long time!  My resident art critic said I should have had some water on the lower part of the card. I said…what a great idea- water, trees and mountains! Will have to play around some more with that idea!

Sometimes, I just need to get my hands on the stamps and dies to create my initial card, and then I get inspiration to try other designs. Need some more ideas…check out the Stampin’ Up! Home Office Video. George did a fine job of showing this versatile REVERSIBLE stamp set!

You can find the sentiment in the Blossom of Blooms  stamp set. Remember this card using Misty Moonlight and Pear Pizzazz? The colors go so well together!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Stampin’ Up! My Meadow with Special Celebrations

May 8, 2020

Happy Friday, Friends! Here’s a sweet card to brighten someone’s day!

The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper is just so pretty, isn’t it…I wish it could stay but it is going away. My wheelbarrow is fussy cut and popped off the Nested Label. I used another great stamp set called Special Celebrations for the sentiment. It is retiring:(

Oops….

The item # for the Special Celebrations is #151396 since it is now a cling-
mine was not a cling stamp and had another item #.

A little DSP finished off the inside with a coordinating sentiment from Special Celebrations:)

Here’s another card I made…

Have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Bundle Easel Card Video Tutorial

May 6, 2020

Yeah, I kinda like the Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Bundle…this time it became an easel card.

I used Seaside Spray for my blue on this card and a bright green Granny Apple Green. I think it really worked with the Night of Navy Frame and the So Saffron sun. Believe me when I tell you I sometimes try a lot of different colors to see which ends up to my liking. Frequently,  I change it days later. I first had a Daffodil Delight sun but liked So Saffron better…no rhyme or reason…just liked it better. Do you ever do that?

 Well, anyhoo, here’s a video showing how easy it is to make an easel card and some little tips using the Stitched Shapes and Rectangle Dies. Please forgive the shadows at the end of the video when my light went out…thankfully, the bulb was just loose in the socket. I should have just reached up to check it! But then it would have been hot… and I might have burnt myself…and my hands would have been compromised…and maybe I could not stamp for awhile…and we would not want that to happen!

 

So, what about the boat? Are you Team Crumb Cake or Team Real Red?

Card Base: 4-1/8″ x 11″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side

Stampin’ Up! Pedal to the Metal Retiform Technique Video Tutorial

March 18, 2020

My friend Lisa needed a card for her son, Richard. He is celebrating the big 16!
He’s our official Bingo caller at my events- a really nice young man! I think he will like the card:)

I made this card using the Retiform Collage Technique. It reminds me of a cool project I did in art class when I was in school.
It’s fun, give it a try with one of your stamp sets. text me a pic if you do!

 

I liked just free form cutting around the sentiment on this one. What do you think?
