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.

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.

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!

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.

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

The more, the merrier!

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.

Until the next time...

Serene Garden in Glorious colors...

I pulled out my awesome Stampin Blends alcohol markers today to color one of my new stamp sets, Serene Garden. I've made other cards with this set, but I have always used soft, subtle colors of ink and cardstock. I've never actually "colored" the images in this set... until now.

I decided on pinks, reds, corals and greens for this vibrant card. The Stampin Blends markers that I used were, rich razzleberry, calypso coral, lovely lipstick and old olive.

IMG_2532

I used the memento tuxedo black inkpad to stamp the images, before I colored them. This ink is a must when using alcohol markers. The cardstock is shimmery white, basic black, pear pizazz and grapefruit grove.

IMG_2531

I tried to capture the amazing-ness of these colors with my camera. The colors are so stunning and vibrant.

IMG_2528

I've attached a piece of lovely lipstick ribbon across the card and folded two 1" pieces of the ribbon in half a slipped them under the greeting with a dimensional.

IMG_2529

I used the Stitched Shapes circle framelit for the pizzaz pear circle and the 1" circle punch for the greeting, which is from the new Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.

IMG_2535

A few rhinestone jewels were added for a touch of sparkle. This is an absolutely beautiful stamp set, which also have a coordinating framelit set (thats how I cut out the butterfly). It also includes an embossing framelit as well!

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Until the next time...

Stampin Up Varied Vases Stamp set and Punch

Oh how cute this set is! The Varied Vases stamp set is a bunch of cute vases in various sizes and shapes with fun flowers as well. It also can be bought with the coordinating punch- it punches the vases, flower, and leaves.

IMG_2402

I used two new Stampin Up colors on this card. Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover are the colors I used in addition to the new Call Me Clover paper in the new In Color designer paper pack. The vase is actually punched from a piece of the new In Color paper as well.

IMG_2400

I stamped the tulip in Lovely Lipstick, but I stamped off onto my scratch paper first, for a softer color, then full strength ink for the outline of the tulip. I did the same with the Call Me Clover ink for the leaves. I also used whisper white, velum and call me clover cardstocks.

IMG_2403

The tiny bow is made with the new lovely lipstick ribbon and I added 3 of the new Faceted Dots in mint macaron below the greeting. The card is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" base, the In Color dotted designer paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4" and the velum is 2 3//4" x 3 1/2". The whisper white is 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 and the call me clover is 2 x 2 3/4.

IMG_2401

Of course its always fun the stamp the inside too!

I hope you enjoyed me quick and easy, super cute tulip card. This stamp set is a must have if you like cute flowers and adorable vases!

Thanks for stopping by today.
