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.


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.


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


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!

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...

Stampin Up Serene Garden in Coastal Cabana

The Serene Garden stamp set and coordinating dies are a pretty and elegant bundle. I chose to do this card in only two colors, whisper white and coastal cabana.


The coordinating framlit dies, actually come with an embossing die as you can see in the bottom left of the card. These framelits are so cool and add an extra wow element to the card.


This is a better photo. I didn't have a great focus or angle on the photo above. The dove and flowers were also stamped in coastal cabana and die cut. I attached them with dimensionals.


This is such a simple and elegant card. The white polka dotted tulle adds a softening touch to this get well card.

Serene Garden is the perfect set for so many occasions, like, weddings, anniversaries, get well, thinking of you, sympathy and more.

I hope you liked my quick and easy coastal cabana card.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Stampin Up Graceful Glass Beauty

Stampin Up has introduced a new kind of vellum. Its vellum with a variety of images embossed in black onto each sheet. It is called Graceful Glass designer vellum and it is awesome!

This vellum coordinates with the new Painted Glass stamp set and framelits bundle. If you love to color, this is the perfect vellum for you. If you don't love to color- this is also great for you, because it is so easy to color because of the embossed lines. It makes it simple to stay "in the lines" with little effort.

Here I colored the stained glass window vellum with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. The markers dry nicely on the vellum. I layered a piece of whisper white cardstock behind the vellum to give the effect of light coming through the glass.

Did you know that our Liquid Multi- Purpose glue will not show through vellum? Its perfect for attaching vellum to any cardstock.


The Stampin Blends that I used are rich razzleberry, old olive, daffodil delight, night of navy and calypso coral. It really was so easy to color in. The black embossed images made it easy to stay in the lines. In this picture, if you look close you can see the embossed black lines.


Here's another close up.


I layered soft seafoam and basic black as the card base. I think it highlights the stained glass's soft glow.

The Graceful Glass vellum has many beautiful patterns. Here's another one I did with a row of birds on a wire.


I used the same colors here, in addition to the pool party Stampin Blends. I also layered whisper white behind the vellum here as well.


I added a bermuda bay striped ribbon around the front of the card.


The Graceful Glass vellum is so elegant and such a lovely stained glass look. The greetings on both cards are from the Itty Bitty Greeting stamp set. Its perfect for a small sentiment on these cards. However, the coordinating Painted Glass stamp set also works wonderfully as well.


There are so many beautiful designs and images in the Graceful Glass vellum pack, these are just two of them.


I hope you give this vellum a try. Its gloriously beautiful and fun to color, for sure.

Thanks for stopping by today.

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.


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.


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.


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.


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!

Sailing away with Stampin Up's Lilypad Lake bundle

Summertime is finally here and I'm excited to be stamping with some brand new summery stamp sets.

The set that I used today is called Lilypad Lake. Its such a calming and peaceful stamp set, especially those tiny sailboats and soothing ripples of water.


For this card I used whisper white, balmy blue, so saffron and coastal cabana cardstocks. I colored the sailboats with the same color Stampin Write Markers.


You can see by this close up that I splattered some ink onto the background. I did this by dipping an aquapainter into some coastal cabana re-inker and tapping it above my cardstock to get the cool splatters.


I love that there is a "Lakeside" coordinating framelit set to cut out the sun, waves and sailboats. It makes creating a breeze! I finished it off with a lemon lime twist ombre ribbon and a touch of white bakers twine.


The sentiment is perfect for someone who is not feeling well or going through a difficult time in their lives.

I hope you liked todays Lilypad Lake greeting card.

Sneak Peek- Stampin Up New Catalog

I am loving the brand new Stampin' Up colors this year. They have added 21 new colors in all!

I had to use the awesome new purples on this card made with the Abstract Impressions stamp set, coming in June.

The colors are Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape as well as Balmy Blue, Soft Seafoam and Granny Apple Green... oh and Gray Granite. I'm so excited to have all these beautiful shades in our new color line.


Abstract Impression is a 3 step stamp set, so I used the Highland Heather first, stamped it off once onto scratch paper and then stamped onto the card. Next was the Gorgeous Grape which I stamped the same way and I also used the Balmy Blue on the small flower in the stamp set and stamped it in the middle of the rose. I wanted to make the colors pop.


This is a super simple card to make, especially if you need to make a LOT of them! I used the Gorgeous Grape cardstock for the base and added the Balmy Blue at an angle.


I also added pearl jewels that I colored with a light old olive Stampin Blend alcohol marker. Did you know that you can color on non porous surfaces with our Stampin Blends? Pretty cool, huh?


Here's some cards where I added the new white polka dot organza ribbon. I love anything with polka dots. Especially ribbon!
