Cards Thank You

Stampin Up Cute Animal Outing Card

Throwing in one of the cards we had made at Card Class recently. Its a cute and colorful, thank you card. This set is adorable and there are matching framelits too!

I also used other products from the Animal Outing Suite, like the Animal Expedition designer paper and the Leaf Ribbon.

The Animal Friends coordinating framelits cut the images that appear on the designer paper as well.

The colors I used for this card are granny apple green, balmy blue and whisper white. The designer paper is the Animal Expedition paper, as I mentioned above. The Balmy Blue cardstock is cut at 4 x 3 and the alligators are 4 x 2 1/4". The stip in the middle is 4 x 1/2" attached over the balmy blue.

I punched a circle in the balmy blue with the 2 1/4 circle punch, then popped it up with dimensionals onto the card. The dimensionals also hold the Leaf ribbon in place, behind the card. The leaves were held in place on the front of the card with glue dots.

I colored the frog with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers in old olive and the branch in call me clover and crumb cake. I popped the branch on with mini dimensionals and added some Metallic Pearls and Glitter Dots.

Country Home in Blueberry and Mango- yum!

So, I thought I would step out of the box a little with some fresh vibrant colors using the Country Home stamp set. As you know this is my favorite fall set in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. I'm addicted to this set and don't want to put it down!

For this lovely card I used mango melody , blueberry bushel, blackberry bliss and whisper white cardstock. I guess I used a little scrap of old olive cardstock for the little tag, as well.

I love how these colors compliment each other.

IMG_5482

For the background I used the new Buffalo Check background stamp inked in blueberry bushel and stamped onto blueberry bushel cardstock. I love the country look of the Buffalo Check stamp- it reminds me of a cozy flannel shirt.

IMG_5476
Of course I had to use my Stampin Blends alcohol markers to color it in. I love how the markers glide like butta! They blend so beautifully. I used crumb cake, mango melody, night of navy, old olive and blackberry bliss markers. Always use a memento black ink pad to stamp your image when using the alcohol markers so they don't bleed.

IMG_5479

The smaller strip of mango melody cardstock was emobossed with the new Tin Tile emboss folder. Perfect match for this stamp set! A few Galvanized buttons were attached with glue dots and I also threaded them with our rustic linen thread.

IMG_5480
Don't forget to stamp the inside... don't you just love the vibrancy of the blueberry bushel ink? So gorgeous!

IMG_5477

The shiny silver piece is the new Chicken Wire embellishment sheets. It adds the perfect touch to this country card and plays off the buttons so nicely.

IMG_5475
If you look close you can see that I shaded the pussy willows with a tiny bit of the crumb cake light marker.

The whisper white cardstock was cut 2 1/4 x 3 inches and I always keep my image straight when I layer angled layers behind. It makes it easier to look at and the angled layers show more color and interest toward the focal point. The blackberry bliss and mango melody cardstock were cut at 2 1/2 x 3 1/4 each.

IMG_5478

The whisper white cardstock was attached over the card with stampin' dimensionals to pop it up a bit.

IMG_5481

So, how do you like these out of the box colors? I love experimenting with colors, there's always a new combination to discover.

Thank you for checking out my blog today.

Until the next time...

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.

IMG_5243

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.

IMG_E5251

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.

IMG_E5250

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.

IMG_E5249

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.

IMG_5307

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! 

IMG_E5248

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.

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!

Until the next time...

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...
