Cards Thank You

Stampin' Up! Country Home stamp set

Are you ready for another beautiful card made with the charming Country Home stamp set? I adore this set. Its so easy to color with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers or even the watercolor pencils or aqua painters. But, for now, I'm loving it with the Stampin' Blends.

I used some brighter colors of fall for this "thank you" card. Pool party and blackberry bliss are the main cardstock colors as well as whisper white. I also used a strip of designer paper from the Frosted Floral paper pack.

The new Galvanized Metallic paper looks amazing embossed with the new Tin Tile emboss folder. I made the tin tile look more rustic and worn by rubbing my memento black ink pad across it. Then I buffed off any excess ink with a paper towel.

The blends colors are pool party, daffodil delight, highland heather, old olive, blackberry bliss and crumb cake. The crumb cake was used to shade the little puffs of cotton.

I also used a few silver metallic pearls to accent the thanks tag and the highland heather flower. An oval framelit from the Layering Oval Framelits collection frames the rustic pitcher, perfectly.

A strip of gorgeous grape striped ribbon ties it all together. I actually wrapped a piece of ribbon around the tin tile and then used another piece of ribbon to make the bow, which I attached with a mini glue dot.

For the cool background, I used my new favorite Buffalo Check background stamp inked in pool party ink. I love these purples and blues and greens together with a tiny pop of yellow!

Here's a quick run down of the cardstock sizes: Blackberry Bliss 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card.

Whisper white: 4 x 5 1/4, Pool Party: 3 3/4 x 5, Galvenized silver: 2x4, Frosted Floral designer paper: 1 1/4 x 3 3/4

This is definitely a set that I would recommend for making your fall, spring or even summer greeting cards!

Thanks for visiting today.

Until the next time...

Stampin Up Varied Vases bundle

I'm loving the colors of this Varied Vases thank you card. These colors were showcased on our Stampin Up demonstrator website, and I just fell in love.

I used highland heather and whisper white cardstock as well as grapefruit grove designer paper. The card is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch card. The whisper white is cut to 3 3/4 x 3 inches and the "in color" designer paper is cut at 5 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches. I stamped the flowers images in memento black ink first, starting with the middle one and spaced them about 1 1/4 inches apart. I then punched out the vases and layed them on scratch paper and stamped the flower stems in them - then simply lined them up with the flowers on the card.

IMG_2539

I added several "Share What You Love artisan pearls" and some grapefruit grove ribbon to add some interest and dimension.

For the water in the vases: I masked off the top of the vases with a post it note and then sponged some balmy blue ink on the bottom of the vases. Works great for the look of "water".

IMG_2538

I colored the flowers with grapefruit grove, mango melody and highland heather Stampin Write Markers. I also used tear n tape to attach the ribbon onto the card. The vases were so easy- because there is a coordinating Vases Builder Punch to punch them out, quickly and easily. I love punches!

IMG_2540

A few of the vases were "popped up" with mini Stampin Dimensionals and the others were simply taped in place with snail adhesive.

Such a darling little stamp set with so many fun possibilities!

Thanks for dropping by!

Sneak Peek- Tropical Chic

Here's a sneak peek at one of the sets we will be using at my Card Class next week. The stamp set is called Tropical Chic and has coordinating thinlets dies that can be purchased as a bundle for a 10% discount. We will be making a card very similar to this one.

IMG_3126

I adore this tropical, breezy and beautiful stamp set. I used blushing bride, flirty flamingo and soft seafoam inks, as well as soft seafoam cardstock.

IMG_3131

There is a 3x3 square of the coordinating, Tropical Escape designer paper behind the leaf cut-out, which was also cut at 3x3 before die cutting. This is a very subtle pattern, however, the designer paper has so many gorgeous tropical images, that you'll love every one of them!

IMG_3132

I inked the flower with blushing bride ink and used a sponge dauber dipped in flirty flamingo to dab the middle of the flower, before I stamped it.

IMG_3129

I added a sequin to the flower using liquid multi-purpose glue. I pick up my sequins with a toothpick, dot the glue on the card and drop the sequin unto the glue.

IMG_3133

I like to stamp the inside as well- this leaf looks so pretty stamped in the same soft seafoam color as the cardstock.

IMG_3127

The twine is the new Silver and Petal Pink bakers twine. It matches this card perfectly. I used a strip of tear tape to hold the twine in place on the card.

IMG_3134

The soft colors and flowy nature of this card almost make me feel like I'm enjoying an tropical breeze right here in Pennsylvania!

IMG_3137

The more, the merrier!

I hope you'll check out this bundle, below- its definitely a favorite of mine and I know you'll love it too!

Until the next time...

Lined Alphabet - Thanks Friend

As you know, I'm obsessed with this Lined Alphabet set and coordinating Layering Alphabet dies. And for good reason! Its amazing, fun to create with and so incredibly unique!

I went for rainbow colors this time and created a special card for a friend.

The card is the standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" and each piece of cardstock is cut the same size as well.

IMG_2657

The colors are real red, mango melody, pineapple punch, granny apple green, pacific point, and glorious grape. I used the Stitched Label framelits for the little granny apple green heart, because those stitched hearts are just the cutest!

IMG_2661

The sentiment comes from the Varied Vases stamp set.  I just love the font in that set- its so fun- just like this card!

I used the Lined Alphabet stamps to stamp over the letters in the same colors as the cardstock for a tone on tone look.

IMG_2668

I finished it off with a tiny rhinestone jewel placed in the middle of the stitched heart. It just gives it that little bit of sparkle at the end of the rainbow.

IMG_2656

I can't say enough about this amazing bundle. I have a sweet baby card and more fun cards to share with this set, coming soon!

Thanks friend, for stopping by today.

Until the next time...

Stampin Up Rooted in Nature bundle

This is one of the best stamp set bundles in the entire catalog, in my opinion. The Rooted in Nature bundle is absolutely beautiful and can be used to create cards for any occasion at all. Its also perfect for creating cards for the special men in your life.

We created this monochromatic card at my team meeting earlier this month. Soft suede is the perfect color for this greeting card, because it lends itself to the colors of nature.

The card is the basic 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" card. The tree and leave cardstock pieces are 3 x 2 and 3 1/4 x 2 1/4 respectively.

IMG_1908

The designer series paper is the new Natures Poem that coordinates perfectly with this suite. You'll notice that I embossed the leaves on this card. I did that with the framelits from the Natures Roots coordinating dies. I used the new Big Shot Embossing mats to create this look.

IMG_1910

I had to use the beautiful Leaves Trinkets that are part of this suite because they are shiny and add the perfect accent to this greeting card. I attached the leaf with a glue dot. The Natures Twine looks so rustic rolled up under the 1" circle punch. Both were attached with dimensionals.

IMG_1909

This set is a classic and was actually designed to coordinate with the ever popular Lovely As A Tree samp set that has been in the catalog for as long as I've been a demonstrator. Thats over 20 years!

Hope you loved this soft suede monochromatic beauty.

Thanks for stopping by today.
