THERE’S NO STAMPING ON THIS CARD

There’s no stamping on this card – I let the die-cuts do all the work!

I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, sprinkled 3 of the colours from the Brusho® Crystal Colour collection and then used our Stampin’ Spritzer to add the “wet” to help spread the colours.  After it dried, I attached it to the Pool Party card front with our tough Tear and Tape adhesive.

Then it was just a matter of cutting out the words and adding those lovely Glitter Enamel dots and the White Perfect Accents to give it a little more Pop.  Love it!

Give this a try yourself.  The Brusho® Crystal Colour is so much fun to play with!

WHAT DO THE MERMAIDS SAY?

What do the mermaids say?  Well, that you are amazing!

Aren’t they just too cute?  I had fun colouring with our fine Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter.

TIP: Because these are smaller images, I used the Aqua Painter with the smaller tip.

The Magical Mates Framelits dies make it so easy to cut them out and the Celebrate You thinlits dies are perfect for adding those great words of greeting!

SAYING THANK YOU WITH FLOWERS

Today is a good day as I was playing with a very pretty Hostess stamp set called Background Bits(144029CM 144026WM).

This stamp set has 8 images that includes two greetings but  I chose to use a greeting from the Sale-A-Bration set, Heartfelt Blooms.

I started with this great card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the rest just came together.

The bundle of flowers at the bottom were coloured with the “direct to stamp” technique using the Berry Bliss and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then, I added a mat in Berry Bliss for a little pop on the white card.  It’s a simple and pretty way to send off a thank you!

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

PANDAS AND BALLOONS

Pandas and Balloons, the perfect party combination!  That’s the theme for today’s really cute card.

I followed along with the layout from CAS(E) this sketch

and used a post-it note to do some masking.  I wanted to show that bevy of balloons by themselves so laid the post-it over the card front so the panda bear wouldn’t show as I stamped just the balloon image.  Then I stamped the panda image again and cut it out with Paper Snips so he could be popped up onto the greeting banner.  Just plain cute, don’t you think?

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

That’s it for today,  Happy Stamping to you!

MANLY HEARTS

Today’s card is a tribute to the men in our life with some “manly” hearts done up in Powder Pink.  That’s cool – right?

And….there’s a couple of blue hearts there too!  I started off with the great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and went from there.  Using the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer paper with a light blue touch adds that traditional masculine feel.

Here’s the sketch that I started with in case you’d like to use it yourself.

Here’s everything I used for today’s card.  Just click on the picture to go to my store if you find that you need anything.

A LITTLE LOVE

Hi there.  Today’s card shows a little trellised love with some watercolour wash.

Isn’t it pretty!  I used an Aqua Painter and Calypso Coral ink to was the colour onto the panel and then, for a little more interest, cut it out with the trellis die from Eclectic Layers Thinlits dies.  All it needed then was a few tiny hearts and that simple sentiment from the Party Pandas stamp set.  Of course, a few strategically place pearls don’t hurt either!

The inspiration for this card came from The Paper Players challenge to create a love note.  Ok, it’s not really clean and simple, but it is a pretty love note!

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

FOR AN AWESOME GRANDSON

Our eldest grandson is turning 14 this month (where-oh-where does the time go?) and he likes music so…….I played around with the Sale-A-Bration set, Epic Celebrations.

This set has a set of headphones image as well so is perfect for the music lover.  Since it does have a music theme, I used the Sheet Music background stamp for just a hint of a musical background.  The stamp was inked up with Smokey Slate and then “stamped off” onto a scrap of paper before it was added to the card front piece.  I l love the way it turned out.

To give those cool runners a bit of a kick, I added touches of black with the sharp end of our Stampin’ Write Markers.

Three of the colours(Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim) that I used are part of The Paper Players challenge this week.

Here’s the list of ingredients for you.

Note that I used three colours for the “celebrate”!  The entire word was cut out with Powder Pink, Calypso Coral and Gold Foil.  Then I cut the Gold Foil and Calypso Coral into pieces and glued each piece over the main part using our fabulous Liquid Multipurpose Glue.

BEAUTIFUL, SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL

This Beautiful Peacock is, quite simply beautiful!  It’s a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set that lets you create some great projects like this card.

It’s a 2-Step stamping set so you can add extras to that peacock image!  I added the “tail” image in Lemon Lime Twist and topped it off with some Garden Green for a little extra pop.  After inking up the image, I stamped it off so it would add just a touch of the darker green.  The same was done with the sprays of leaves.

All you need to do to get this set is spend $60 starting on January 2, 2018!

Here’s the list of products for you.
