Whole Lot of Lovely

I love the Stampin’ UP! designer series paper and as each catalog comes to an end there are so many I will miss. The Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper is one of them, I love the colors, the different prints and how it works with so many stamp sets. To create my card I used one of my favorite stamp sets from the Occasions catalog, Petal Palette and Artisan Texture from the NEW the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalog (Available June 1,2018)

To complete the card you will need to…..

  • stamp the sentiment in versamark ink on the black oval, cover with white embossing powder, shake off excess and heat until shiny. Adhere to the soft sky scallop oval and punch a 1/8″ hole on each side.

Bird Banter Birthday

A little birdie told me…..the Bird Banter stamp set is one you may have passed by in the Occasions Catalog (check page 42) I would  have too but at the last On Stage event for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Brian King demonstrated a card that sold me. Now 4 months into the Occasions Catalog  I decided to see what I could come up with. This fun card is perfect if you happen to be a little late on sending birthday cards….or if you are on the ball just leave out “obviously, it wasn’t an early bird”. I am sure with all the great bird images you will be creating all sorts of fun cards.

Heartfelt Blooms

With Sale A Bration coming to an end I though I would share a stack of  note cards I made using the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set and Shimmer ribbon pack. I’m so glad I didn’t overlook this stamp set, it was perfect to create this quick and easy note card with just a few supplies.

IMG_7166

To get started you will need a note card and envelope, basic gray ink, a piece of whisper white card stock cut at 3 7/8″ X 2 3/8″, basic gray card stock cut at 4″ X 2 1/2″, a piece of the gray shimmer ribbon (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), Heartfelt Blooms stamp set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), Hardwood background stamp, dimensionals, stampin’ sponges.

  • basic gray ink- ink  the hardwood background stamp , stamp off a scrap piece of paper then on the front of your note card.(this will give a lighter image)
  • basic gray ink- stamp the flower and sentiment on the white card stock, use a sponge with basic gray ink to soften the edges of the note card and card stock.
  • adhere the image to the basic gray card stock, wrap the gray shimmer ribbon around and tie a bow.
  • attach to the front of the note card with dimensionals

….finish off your set by stamping the flower on the envelope and a corner on the inside of the note card. That was pretty simple, repeat with the different sentiments to create a stack of note cards for you or to give as a gift.

The Perfect Pear….

Sometimes your plans just don’t work out….like sharing samples last week of the Tutti-Frutti Suite. I live in California and we are very lucky to have been having some amazing weather so we headed to the beach for a few days to relax and enjoy the sun with friends and family.

Today I cleared off my desk and started to get back to what I started, creating with the Fruit Basket stamp set and Tutti-Frutti Designer Series paper….the perfect pear!

Watermarked(2018-02-19-1014) (1)

Directions:

  • Start with a card base of lemon lime twist CS (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″)
  • Next emboss a piece of whisper white CS (3 3/4″ X 5″) with the Simple Stripes embossing folder and adhere to a piece of crumb cake CS (3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″), adhere to the lemon lime card base.
  • Make a banner with a 2″ strip of Tutti-Frutti DSP and flag the bottom with the triple banner punch
  • Wrap a 6″ piece of lemon lime twist ribbon around the top of the banner and tie in a knot, adhere to the front of the card.
  • Punch out 1 starburst in tutti-frutti DSP, die cut 1 stitched circle in whisper white and sponge the edges in crumb cake ink. With crushed curry ink and a sponge dauber color the back side of a metallic foil doilie and cut in half.
  • Stamp the basket in crumb cake ink on crumb cake CS and cut out. Stamp a couple pears in both crushed curry and lemon lime twist ink, punch out with the pear punch. Stamp “hello” in crumb cake ink on a scrap of whisper white CS, cut out and punch a 1/6″ hole. Wrap a piece of linen thread around basket and tie a bow with the tag.
  • Attach the basket to the stitched circle with dimensionals, add the pears with mini dimensionals.
  • Layer together by adhering 1 half of the doilie to each side of the starburst, attach the whisper white stitched circle next with dimensionals, and adhere to the banner below the knot and add acouple tutti-frutti sequins.

I love making cards that are general, they are perfect when you just want to say hello and brighten someones day or add a sentiment inside!
