Peaceful Reflection in Pink

I have another Peaceful Reflection card to share with you today. This is the stamp set that can be used to make a reflection in the water, by flipping the actual photopolymer stamp over on the block and stamping with it.

IMG_2496

I used petal pink, and shaded spruce cardstock as well as lemon lime twist, petal pink, shaded spruce, lovely lipstick an balmy blue inks. For the splatter, I dipped an aqua painter in a puddle of lemon lime twist ink, and flicked it over the cardstock.

IMG_2494

As I mentioned, I did the reflection with the same stamps that I stamped the green plants in, only I flipped them over on the acrylic block to the flat side of the stamp. I did stamp off first with the balmy blue ink, before stamping the reflection. ( stamping off: ink stamp, then stamp on scratch paper right before stamping on the card for a softer color)

For the layered background, I attached a 5 1/4 x 4" piece of petal pink at an angle to the front of the card.

Then, I turned the card over trimmed off the over-hang pieces.

I scattered a few of the Share What You Love pearls around the card and added a greeting on an oval Stitched Shape framelit.

IMG_2493

I love pinks and greens and was surprised how well the various shades meshed together so well on this card.

Its effortless to make reflections with this super cool stamp set. I hope you decide to give it a try.

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 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!

Stampin Up- A Good Day Lemonade

I simply can't put this set down! I keep thinking of more cards to create with this darling stamp set.

A Good Day stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I was thinking spring and wishing for warmer days today, so I came up with this refreshing and brightly colored greeting card.

IMG_E0915

Ahh... so refreshing. I used some cheerful and happy colors for this card, including, daffodil delight, lemon lime twist, and peek a boo peach. Even the names of these colors make me happy.

I colored the drink glasses with regular Stampin Write Markers in the same colors.

IMG_0918

I didn't use the coordinating Embroidery Hoops this time, but I did use the 2 Scallop Circle punches that coordinate with this darling stamp set.

IMG_E0919

The daffodil delight cardstock measures 4 x 5 1/4, the peek a boo peach is 5 1/4 x 3 and the Tuttu Frutti designer paper is 5 x 2 3/4.  I stamped the "Just for You" starburst twice. Once on lemon lime twist cardstock and once on whisper white. I then used the 1" circle punch to punch out the words on the whisper white cardstock and used a dimensional to pop it up on the lemon lime twist scallop circle.

IMG_0916

 I tied it up with two ribbons made with my favorite gorgeous, lemon lime twist ribbon and added a few Tutti Frutti self adhering sequins!

I hope this makes you all warm and happy and ready for spring!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up Barn Door Stamps and Dies

I have some fun cards to share with you today, made with the new Stampin' Up Barn Door Bundle.

Its such a fun set to play with. I've created 3 different designs and one of them we will make at Card Class this week. Yay!

The first card is also made with the " This Little Piggy" stamp set. I thought it would be fun to put the piggy in the barn. It works perfectly with this set. I will post a Stampin' Up video below, showing just how to make a barn door card with the Barn Door Bundle. So scroll to the bottom of this post to see it.

The cardstock that I used is whisper white and basic black and also the Woodgrain Designer Series paper. The inks are smoky slate, crumb cake, pink pirouette, and the memento black pad.

IMG_0714

I colored in the pig with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used both the smoky slate and pink pirouette sets of markers.

If you watch the video below, you will also get a list of the "behind the scenes" items that were used to put this card together. I will also post the supply list below.

IMG_0715

I used the Stampin Write water based markers to color directly on the wreath stamp in crumb cake, pink pirouette and basic black.

How cool is this? The door slides back and forth to reveal the message. The whisper white piece that has the pig/message stamped on it is 41/4" x 2 1/2". The card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  The door is cut out with a framelit from the barn door set.

IMG_0716

IMG_0719

This is the card that we will be making at Card Class this week:

IMG_0710

I hope the card class girls like it!

IMG_0709

The colors are whisper white, crumb cake and basic black- same for the inks as well as cherry cobbler. I also used the Hardwood Background stamp for the card base. Same measurements as above.

IMG_0713

I colored the wreath, the same way as above... using the early espresso and cherry cobbler Stampin' Write markers.

IMG_0707

IMG_0712

It's so fun to slide the door back and forth!

IMG_0708

Here are both cards:

IMG_0720

And slide...

IMG_0721

One last quick card that I made while I had extra pieces to use up...

IMG_E0802

The inks on the sign, greeting and flowers are dapper denim, calyso coral and marina mist.

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)

IMG_0485

I randomly painted some ink onto the paper.

IMG_0486

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

IMG_0487

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

IMG_0491

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.

IMG_0494

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.

IMG_0488

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.

IMG_0511

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

IMG_0490

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.
