A LATTÈ HAPPINESS

Today’s card shows off the fun Coffee Cafè Bundle and matching Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.  I also have a little tutorial for you that shows how to do the Masking Technique.

Isn’t it cute?  I got my start with the great sketch by CAS(E) this sketch and went from there.  If you look very closely, you can see a shimmer on the foam over the cup – that foam was cut from a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

Now, on to the tutorial.  If you want to add just a few words from the greeting in the stamp set, just cover the ones you don’t want with pieces of scotch tape as shown in the picture,

Then remove the tape and stamp the word onto your piece of cardstock.

It’s a simple and clean way to add just the right word or phrase to your project!

Have fun with this technique and Happy Stamping to you!

BEAUTIFUL AUTUMN

It’s hard, but I’ve decided that autumn has to been my favourite time of year.  It’s the colours of the season that say it for me…the rusty colours of the leaves touched with the muted yellow of the sun!  The bringing in of the harvest.  This is what I tried to portray in today’s card.

Cajun Craze is such a lovely, rich colour and that is why I started with it for the card base.  The Painted Autumn designer paper has a couple of pages full of pumpkins so I cut one out to add to the bundle of leaves.  This is all done to play along with the Stampin’ Up! Only(SUO) challenge and it did take 3 stamp sets to get it “right” but I’m very happy with the outcome.

The background was stamped using the Touches of Texture stamp set and I used the “stamping off” technique to get the muted tones of Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.  The leaves have a touch of Always Artichoke thrown in because some haven’t quite finished turning colour yet.

PRETTY ORCHIDS JUST FOR YOU

Do you like Orchids?  They just seem to say something exotic don’t they?  Todays card shows off a few with a little heat embossing.

The Paper Players posted a great Colour Challenge that includes, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Silver and White so I went for it!  I wanted to use the Climbing Orchid Bundle so checked out the card sketch from CAS(E) this sketch and went from there.

The silver on my card is the mat behind those pretty pink orchids and I combined White and Silver emboss powder(about 1/2 tsp of each colour) to get that muted colour for the flower centres and the greeting.

Here’s a copy of the sketch in case you’d like to play along as well.

CASEING A BEAUTIFUL CARD

The other day, I saw a beautiful card posted that was created with the Painted Harvest Bundle and just had to CASE(copy and share everything) it for our stamping class!  It was done is white and blue and here is the one we created.

I love the depth in the flower and it’s easy to achieve as the Painted Harvest stamp set is 2-step stamping!  Did you know that you can use the Clear Blocks to stamp as well?  We used Clear Block D to get that Sahara Sand square in the background.

Here’s the list of products that we used. 

I have classes scheduled for September and October so make sure to check out my Class Calendar and sign up.  If you are interested in having your own stamping party, contact me as well.

We’re all heading to the race track this weekend for our last race of the season so it will be loud, fast and fun out there!  Have a great weekend yourself and Happy Stamping to you!

BACK TO SCHOOL

It’s back to school as well as starting school for many so I created this card to cheerfully send them on their way!

And the Crafting Forever stamp set (143958CM 143955WM) worked perfectly for The Paper Players Back-to-School Theme challenge.

I stamped that trio of pens with the Basic Gray Archival ink and then relaxed with a little colouring with our fantastic Stampin’ Write Markers.

The “S” looked a little lonely on that circle so I added the “chool” to finish the work and just had to fussy cut out that tiny pair of scissors to add.

A SPECIAL DRAGONFLY FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY

Today’s card shows off the beautiful dragonfly from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and matching detail dragonfly thinlits.  Because, everyone needs a special dragonfly for their special day!

I love the way it looks like this dragonfly is landing on those leaves from the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  The detailed outline of the dragonfly was stamped onto a piece of white vellum and the I overstamped a bit of Pear Pizzazz ink to give it a bit of that green shimmer.  Adding those Iridescent Sequins(144212) finished off the shimmer.  I especially like these sequins because there are tiny ones in the mix in that lovely green shimmer!

The layout for this card comes from the CAS(E) this sketch challenge for this week.

It’s a great sketch and I enjoyed playing around with it.

LET’S GATHER TOGETHER

Autumn is on my mind and it’s also a great time to gather together to do some stamping.

This card was created using the new Painted Harvest Bundle and the beautiful matching Painted Autumn designer series paper.  Which is why I decided to let the paper do most of the talking on this card.   The Leaf Punch is part of the bundle and is perfect for adding that touch of autumn leaves!  This card is just one of the 4 we will be creating at the September 5th Class.

It really is time to gather together to do some stamping and I encourage you to sign up for this fun class.  Here’s the link for easy sign up and you may want to check out the other classes I have scheduled as well.

PUT A LITTLE AUTUMN IN YOUR DAY

I hate to say it but Autumn is really right around the corner.  We can already see the leaves turning colour and there is a definite “crispy” feel to the air.  But, the colours of this coming season are spectacular and I tried to capture them in today’s project.

The Colorful Seasons Bundle has all the pieces needed to created these beautiful autumn leaves!  I first stamped them using Crushed Curry ink and then added the other colours by swiping the inked stamp with a stamping sponge.  The Seasonal Layers Thinlits(143751) dies did the rest!

The layout so show off the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer series paper came from the Create with Connie & Mary sketch .

CRAFTING FOREVER FROM STAMPIN’ UP!

This new stamp set, Crafting Forever(143958CM 143955WM) is a lot of fun to create with and today’s card delivers a clean and simple message.

I had some fun with the Gold Emboss Powder and Heat tool to get that golden pen and then cut it out to sit just so on the card.

The layout from CAS(E) this Sketch was the starting point and that’s why the pen sits just above the greeting circle.
