Kim's Card Class

Simple Mermaid Card using Magical Day

I love, love, love the new Myths and Magic designer paper. Its so sparkly, colorful and magical!

I put together a quick card using the mermaid paper and the Magical Day stamp set. Who can resist a beautiful mermaid card?

The mermaid in the circle was stamped with the black memento ink pad and colored with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used the pool party and bermuda bay markers as well as the ivory, pumpkin pie and daffordil delight colors.

To pick up on the sparkle from the Myths and Magic designer paper, I added a strip of the new Myths and Magic glimmer paper in bermuda bay.

Can you see the sparkle on the mermaids? I also added a few Glitter dots in pink, blue and green, randomly on the bubbles of the paper. Can you spot them?

A small knotted lemon lime twist ribbon is attached with a glue dot, beneath the little mermaid.

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.

IMG_0345

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..

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.

IMG_0284

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!

Picture Perfect Birthday- Stampin Up

I'm sharing a super sweet birthday card with you today. I got this idea from Janice Weightman, in a swap that we did together.

I loved the colors and the simplicity of this card. It was a snap to put together, especially with the beautiful Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and gorgeous Picture Perfect Party designer paper. You seriously need to check out this paper in the Occasions Catalog or the product list that I posted below. It is amazing!

IMG_2720

This is the coolest birthday verse ever... Cue the Confetti- I love it! I also love all the vibrant colors. I used lemon lime twist, peek a boo peach, pool party, so saffron and berry burst inks and cardstocks. The lemon lime twist banner was punched with the Triple Banner Punch to create the tail on the banner, which I placed side-ways on the card.

  IMG_2721

I added a few rhinestone gems to the candle flames for shine and sparkle. I love how easy, but so cute, this card is. I could whip up dozens of these in no time at all!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Petal Palette and Stampin' Blends

One of the first sets that I ordered from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog was the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating dies. This set is not only lovely, but comes with some wonderful greetings and verses.

I have actually used these greetings many times with other stamp sets, because they are so perfect for many occasions.

For this card I also used the Petal Passion designer paper. This paper is all black and white and so beautiful. It goes with every color of the rainbow! The patterns are gorgeous as well.

I first stamped my roses in memento black ink, and then colored them in with the Stampin Blends Alcohol markers. I used the rich razzleberry light and dark, pink pirouette dark, and old olive light and dark markers.

IMG_E2715

I punched a hole in the designer paper with the 2 1/4" circle punch and mounted the roses over the hole with dimensionals. A strip of the new Myths and Magic glimmer paper in lemon lime twist adds some sparkle.

  IMG_E2719

Check out the new Glitter and Clear Epoxy shapes on the rose petals. I thought I would use them as "dew" on the petals.

IMG_2714

The black and white designer paper really makes the color of the roses "pop." I am loving this paper more and more, each time I use it.

IMG_2717

Sweet and simple on the inside, for the bride and groom.

Check out the Petals Palette bundle in the Occasions Catalog- link on sidebar,(2nd catalog down) or below in the product list. There is so much more to this bundle than you see here. I think it will be one of your favorites as well.

Stampin Up Amazing Congratulations

What a cool 3 step stamp set, I must say. The Amazing Congratulations stamps are made to layer and blend together as you stamp them.

I used 3 colors for the word "congratulations." The colors are dark to light, dapper denim, bermuda bay and marina mist.

This card is super simple. It doesn't need a lot of embellishments, because the color layering does all the talking!

IMG_2712

I started with the dapper denim outline stamp and filled in with the other two colors. I found it so much easier to line up this way. I also found that if I focus on lining up the full letters only, it goes together really well.

IMG_2711

Check out that beautiful marbled background. I used the Marble background stamp, inked in marina mist and stamped on marina mist for a tone on tone look. A small Enamel Shape in dapper denim tops off the greeting.

IMG_2710

That's it. Super quick and super special.

Thanks for checking out my blog today.
