COLOUR BLOCKING FOR A BIRTHDAY

Hi there!  Today’s card shows off some of the great Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack for a simple birthday greeting!


Freshly Made Sketches posted a great layout that I thought would be perfect to show off a couple of the simple designs in this stack.

All I had to do then was add some swirls cut from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, a great greeting from Guy Greetings and this card is ready to be sent away!

Here’s the sketch,

And, here’s the list of products that I used.

SAYING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE MAN

Do you struggle with ideas for cards for the man in your life?  I do too but after some serious creating, came up with this card for a good friend of ours.

I used Guy Greetings and am very happy with the way it all turned out.  The background piece sets the stage and I thought that layering a piece of Copper Trim over the Burlap Ribbon would add that extra touch of pop and secured it with Mini Glue Dots(103683).  TIP:  I used our Tear & Tape Adhesive to add the burlap piece to the background.  It secures it all nicely!

Here’s the list of all the products that I used.

I hope that this card inspires you to create your own masculine card idea.  Happy Stamping!

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!

Here is the list of products for you.

NO BONES ABOUT IT

Welcome to a traditional twist on a kid’s card that I showed you the other day.

The first card was created with pinks (see it here)but sometimes going “traditional” makes for a really cute card too.

I used a combination of blues to make this cutie for my great-nephew.  Since this set is a 2-step stamping set, he bones were stamped with Dapper Denim and then over-stamped with Soft Sky.  Of course I used some of our new InColors for the different leaves.

Here’s the list of products for you.

The No Bones about It stamp set is so very cute and perfect for the dinosaur lover, give it a try yourself and Happy Stamping!

HERE’S A CLEAN AND SIMPLE MASCULINE CARD

I have been trying to do more masculine-themed cards and today’s fits the bill with its clean and simple lines.

The new and soon available to you Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack has all the right pieces for your masculine themed projects!  I choose this blocked piece with its Crushed Curry flavour and added some simple stamping from the Swirly Bird stamp set to play along with CAS(E) this Sketch.

I wanted to add a “pop” to this card so stamped, cut out and popped up that tiny bird next to the greeting.  A few metallic stars and it’s good to go.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

Have a wonderful day and Happy Stamping!

IT’S HERE, THE NEW LOVELY INSIDE & OUT BUNDLE

Hello and I’m starting out the week with a new stamp set bundle called Lovely Inside & Out.  I’ve been busy sorting through my Pre-Order of new things that are coming in the new 2017-2018 Catalogue and had to show off this simple and lovely stamp set with the matching Lovely Words Thinlits.

I also used some new designer paper from the Color Theory stack with a design that goes very well with our Dapper Denim cardstock.

Starting with a simple card sketch helps to inspire and the Freshly Made Sketches challenge was the perfect inspiration for this clean and simple card.

You will notice that there is a shadow behind the word “friend” – cut out one in Dapper Denim and the other in one of our new InColors called Lemon Lime Twist.  I love the bright and cheery hue of this new colour!

Here’s the list of the products that I used.  NOTE – you will not be able to order the new products until June 1st.  I know, it’s hard to wait, but I’m sure that you are going to love all the great new products in this new catalogue!

OH, THESE BOOTS

Do you remember that song called “These Boots are Made for Walking”?  It’s definitely an oldie and is probably dating me but it was the inspiration for today’s card.

I’ve been working on adding to my masculine card collection and this will make a great addition.  The mat piece was made using the Brick Wall embossing folder and I patted the Sahara Sand ink pad on the inside of it before adding the cardstock.  After you run it through the Big Shot it comes out with that old look.  Nice!

I really like the greeting from Guy Greetings but changed it from “shoes” to “boots” just by crossing the word out and adding the other with the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  It may be an idea you would like to try on a card of your own.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

WHEN SOMEONE SPECIAL NEEDS TO KNOW

What a great way to start a Monday – with a card designed for someone special in your life!

I played around with the Guy Greetings stamp set(137178) with a touch of You’ve Got This(139575) for this special card.

It would be a great one for Father’s Day too( that was on my mind while creating it)!  I used the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to add the detail to the anchor image and love the look of the larger red circle behind it.

I was following along with the Freshly Made Sketches layout and am quite happy with the way it all came together.  Here’s the sketch so you can see why this card was put together this way.

MASCULINE CARD WITH GUY GREETINGS

Happy Tuesday to you and today I thought it would be a good idea to post this masculine card for you.

The image and greeting comes from the Guy Greetings stamp set that’s available in Photopolymer, wood-mount and clear-mount.  So whatever your preference is, it’s there for you.

I’m mimicking the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch and the Playful Paletter designer paper is my version of the stripes on the sketch layout.

I don’t make too many obvious masculine cards so I really like this one in it’s simplicity.

Here’s the list of products for you.
