HAPPY BIRTHDAY ORCHID

Hello out there.  I’m starting the week off with a soft and pretty birthday greeting with the Climbing Orchid Bundle.  Can’t seem to stop playing with this set, lol.

I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to create this background and used the same technique as this card.

To create the perfectly simple birthday card, you need the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.  So pretty and adding that pretty orchid tops it off beautifully.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

A NARWHALE KIND OF BIRTHDAY

He, he, I’m stamping with this very cute Quirky Critters stamp set again and adding a cool background as well.

Isn’t it cute!  To get that cool background, I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, ink and a sponge.  Just layer the first design over top of your paper, sponge the colour of choice and then change the mask to a different background and sponge a different colour over it.  Pretty cool don’t you think?

Adding those pretty Glitter Enamel Dots finished this card off nicely.  The soft green matches the green in the background.

Here’s the list of products for you.

TRY THE NEW EMBOSSING PASTE – IT’S FUN!

Good day and I’m excited to show this card created by using our new Embossing Paste and the Old Olive ink refill.

This paste is easy to use, just lay the Pattern Party design mask of your choice over the piece of thick very vanilla paper and spread.  You will need to set the background aside to dry for about 5-10 minutes.

In the meantime, stamp the orchids, stems and greeting and cut them out with corresponding framelits.  TIP:  The branches were stamped onto Soft Suede cardstock and then cut out with Paper Snips.  When your background is dry, arrange the flowers and branches and add your greeting.  I’ll post a video for you tomorrow to see how to use this Embossing Paste.

PLAYING WITH ORCHIDS – AGAIN!

Hello and I’m playing with the Climbing Orchid Bundle – again!  This time by creating these lovely vellum orchids.

Working with vellum makes for a lovely twist, especially when using the Berry Burst ink!  The first thing to do is to stamp the branches onto the whisper white background and then run it through the Big Shot so you can add the Garden Trellis.  I did a little trick by adding the branch onto the greeting piece so it would lie nicely at the top.  TIP:  Just stamp the greeting first and then lay the piece over top of the already stamped branch to get an eyeball of where it should be over top of the greeting.

Here is the list of products used for this card.

COFFEE WITH A FRIEND

There’s nothing better than coffee with a friend and good conversation!  This card was created to celebrate that fact.

I used the Coffee Cafe Bundle(145331) and Shimmery White paper to get the “recycled” look for the coffee cups.  The background paper from the Wood Textures designer series paper stack makes the perfect background as I was looking to give this card the feeling that one is in a coffee cafe!

CRAFTING IS FUN

Crafting is fun and I love to create so when this stamp set showed up in the new Catalogue, I just had to get it!  It’s called Crafting Forever and has some wonderful images to use!

Here’s what I created.

I used all of the colour families for our Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the container of brushes and also did a little paper-piecing with the Wood Texture Designer paper stack for the brush container.  If you look very closely, you should also be able to see our Gold Metallic Thread weaving over the top of the images.

Check out all the fun images in this stamp set.

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.

THIS IS ONE HAPPY PIGGY

I thought that i’d show this Happy Piggy today.  Who doesn’t like happy dancing pigs, lol?

She looks so sweet with the Lemon Lime Twist card base doesn’t she?  I used Shimmery White paper and an Aqua Painter to get her to just the right shade of pink.  The new InColor, Powder Pink was perfect!  This stamp set is so perfect when you want to send a happy greeting!

CASE-ING THE CATALOGUE

Good day to you and today’s card is a “Case” (copy and share everything) from page 18 of the new Catalogue.  I used the new Coffee Cafe Bundle for this one.

There are several different sizes of coffee cups in the matching framelits and I used the smallest one.  A quick and careful swipe of colour from the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker was all that was needed to colour the lid on the cup.

Here’s the list for you.  If you are a coffee lover and know someone else who is as well, you may like to add this bundle to your stamp collection.

EASTERN BEAUTY

I thought that I’d show you this card that was created with the Eastern Beauty Bundle.  It is so beautiful with the new InColors, Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig.

If you look closely you can see that I heat embossed the little flourish in gold and then added the centrepiece using the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers.  A tiny gold bow finishes it off nicely.

Here is the full list of products used.
