Apron Of Love- Another cute apron card to share

I wanted to share with you another darling apron card that I made using the Apron of Love Bundle. Again, I used the Tutti Frutti designer paper for the apron, as it goes so well with this set.

This is actually one of the cards that we made at card class last week. I think the ladies really had fun putting this together.

It was pretty simple as well. We mostly used the big shot- to cut and emboss all the pieces. The vine on the lemon lime twist strip is the new Petal Pairs emboss folder. There are two folders that come with the Petal Pair emboss folder set. The other one is a gorgeous spray of flowers. The folders are 2" x 6" each.

I used soft suede and real red ink as well as crumb cake and silver foil paper on this cute card.

Here's a look at the inside..

Watercolor and Pink Pineapples

So, I finally was able to have some fun with the new Fruit Basket stamp set and coordinating Fruit Punches. I was eager to make some pink pineapple cards for sure!

I started with watercolor paper, my aqua painter and a melon mambo ink pad. I wanted a splash of water color wash in pink for my background. So, I used the ink in the "lid" of the melon mambo ink pad and painted it onto my watercolor paper with an aqua painter. ( close your ink pad and squeeze the lid of the inkpad so that the ink deposits onto the lid inside)

I randomly painted some ink onto the paper.

 I then flicked the barrel of my aqua painter to splatter water/ink onto the watercolor paper.

I let it dry, and then it was time to decorate!

The 3/4" circle punch was used to make the basic black circles which I adhered the melon mambo and lemon lime twist pineapples onto with mini dimensionals.

I decorated the card with the new Tutti Fruitti sequins, which by the way, are self adhering! I also added a rhinestone to the middle of each sequin.

The black and white dotted paper is from the Tutti Frutti designer paper pack and the ribbon is lemon time twist. I thought it would be cool to stamp the greeting directly on the ribbon in black archival ink.

Of course I had to stamp some cute pineapples on the inside of the card as well.

Making this "Pink Pineapple" card made me so happy. I didn't stop there, though, I have more Fruit Baskets to share this week as well. So be sure to check in later.

How to make a Quick and Easy Waterfront stamp set card

The Waterfront stamp set in the Occasions Catalog is simply amazing. It really doesn't look like much in the catalog, but its one of the easiest and most VERSITILE stamp sets that I've ever used!

This really makes beautiful scenery cards with little to no effect. The separate stamp images can be used in so many ways to create any setting you can imagine. There is water, mountains trees, sky, cottage, sun/moon, splatter and a variety of verses.

I almost didn't buy it, but once I saw all the amazing cards that people were creating with it, I had to get it for myself.

This is a simple card that we made at Kim's Card Class. The ladies loved it! We made 3 cards each of this same design and it literally took all of 10 minutes.

When you find yourself in need of a masculine card, this set is absolutely perfect for that too. You can use it in so many ways, beach, woods, mountains etc.. so you never have to make the same scene twice!

I stamped the mountains in crumb cake ink, twice, and over lapped them. It actually gives them more depth to overlap. The trees and grass are in tranquil tide ink, and the water is soft sky and marina mist. The log cabins are stamped in chocolate chip ink as well as the verse.

IMG_0285

For the sun, I used so saffron, then I punched it out with the 3/4 " circle punch and used a sponge dauber dipped in peek a boo peach ink, to sponge around the outside of the circle. Its difficult to see in the photo, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the sun and water to add shimmer.

The background paper is from the new True Gentleman designer paper in the Occasions Catalog. It has the perfect colors and patterns for a masculine card.

I'll be designing with this set a lot more- can't wait to make a beach scene!

Until the next time...

Stampin Up: Apron of Love Bundle

This is the most adorable stamp set. I remember years ago when I first joined Stampin Up, I made an Apron card from scratch and it was published in the Stampin Up Idea Book. This stamp set, brings back all those memories for me.

I paired this set with the Tutti Frutti designer paper, because the fruits, colors and patterns were perfect for an apron card!

IMG_E0278

I also used one of our white doilies, but I sponged over it with a sponge brayer and night of navy ink. It looks just like denim! This card was fairly simple because most of it was die cut with the coordinating Apron Builder framelits. *see product list below.

The gorgeous ribbon is the new night of navy Corduroy Ribbon. Its so soft and pretty.

IMG_0280

I attached the utensils behind the pocket with a few mini dimensionals as well as the apron strap die cut. The night of navy and lemon lime twist circles were punched out with the 2 and 2 1/4 inch circle punches.

I attached the tongs inside with the fine tip glue pen.

IMG_E0281

Looking forward to using this stamp set and dies many, many more times in the near future.

A Couple of shares from the Stampin Up Convention

I have two projects that I forgot to share with you. I made these during the Stampin Up Convention Make n Take event.

The first card is made with the Petal Palette stamp set. The designer paper on this card is called Petal Passion and its all black and white patterns. However, we colored in some of the images on the paper with a calypso coral Stampin Write marker to match the bird and cardstock. This way, we can make it any color we want!

IMG_1792

I love the layout and the layering on this card and also the little details, like the Petal Passion silver flower and leaf embellishments, tucked within the layers of the card.

IMG_1794

Here's one more project for you. A couple of darling little tags made with the Fruit Basket stamp set and coordinating punches.

Of course, I LOVE the tiny little pineapples! I can't wait to make them PINK!

IMG_1796

The punches are so cute - theres also a strawberrry and a citrus slice (the hole in the top of the tag is actually punched with the citrus slice) as well as the pear and pineapple punches. The Tutti Frutti designer paper is new too. These patterns are subtle, but there are so many bright and fruity patterns as well, in this package.

Thanks for visiting today.

Until the next time...
