HOGS & KISSES JUST FOR YOU

Today’s card goes back to the oh-so-cute This Little Piggy stamp set with this pretty in pink card.

He, he, I just love this stamp set and with its selection of greetings, it’s perfect for an Anniversary or a just because I love you card.  I’m playing along with the What Will You Stamp challenge for this week which is also why I chose this stamp set.

There are several great designs in the Pick a Pattern designer series paper and this particular pattern led me to the combination of pinks for this little piggy.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

CATS IN VIEW

Hi and happy Monday to you!  Today’s post is all about cats for a great wedding or anniversary card.

I just had to get my hands on the new Cat Punch that’s in the 2017 Holiday catalogue and here they are in counterpoint!  The cat punch is part of a bundle for halloween crafting but as you can see, it can be used in other ways too.  Don’t they look cute with their tiny bows?  TIP:  I used a mini glue dot to make sure that that box stayed exactly where I wanted it.

Of course these cats needed eyes so I used our Pearls basic jewels as New, yes new black rhinestones from the 2017 Holiday catalogue for the white cat.

The idea for this card started with the Freshly Made sketch for this week.

As you can see, my card doesn’t follow the sketch exactly but there is nothing wrong with using a little “artistic license” when you’re in the creating zone!

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.

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.

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.

ORCHIDS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL

Do you like Orchids?  I think that they are so beautiful and was delighted to play with the new Climbing Orchid Bundle.

This is one of the cards that we had fun with in class yesterday.  I kept the background plain so we could show off those beautiful Orchids.  Perfect Plum is the perfect colour to set them off don’t you think?  We just stamped the images and then used the matching Orchid Builder Framelits Dies to cut them out.

It didn’t take too many supplies to create this card so this list is short.

I recommend that you purchase the bundle so you can save the 10%.

SUNNY SMILES FOR YOUR MONDAY

We had an absolutely lovely weekend full of sunshine and smiles, so I thought it only appropriate to share this sunny card today.  After all, isn’t a sunny smile a great way to start off the week?

I “borrowed” the greeting from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and did something a little different to get that shape. TIP:   I first traced the outline of the stamp onto the whisper white paper, then stamped it with Old Olive ink and then cut it out with Paper Snips.  It’s a fun way to add a little interest to your project!

A CUT ABOVE:

I’m delighted to share with you that I was one of the Paper Players choices for A Cut Above on their challenge for last week.  This is the card I shared with them.  Thank you for choosing my card!

ONE LOVELY ROSE JUST FOR YOU

Happy Monday to you and what better way to start a new week than with one lovely rose!  This card was made with the Graceful Garden stamp set and I love the rose images.

It’s perfect for watercolouring so I brought out our Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painters to get just the right touches in that lovely rose.  TIP:  Use our Shimmery White paper when watercolouring.  It won’t pill while you’re blending the colours.

Notice that interesting layout?  It’s from Freshly Made Sketches and was fun to put together with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  The background looked a little too bare for me so I added that trellis image from the Graceful Garden stamp set to finish things off.  Perfect!

Here’s the sketch for you – you might want to give it a try yourself.
