THOUGHTFUL DAISIES

Welcome to you.  Today’s card is stepping away from Christmas and going towards a Thank You card.  We do need to consider sending thanks to those who do lovely things for us, after all!

The Daisy Delight Bundle stepped up to the plate for this cheery and colourful card as well as a piece of designer paper from the Naturally Eclectic package.

I also followed along with the Create with Connie & Mary sketch and really, really like the way everything fell into place.  Especially the stem from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies!  These dies are great for every season and just about every theme!

THE THANKFUL OWL

Happy Tuesday to you!  It took 3 stamp sets to create today’s card but I think this thankful owl was worth it.

I’m playing along with 2 challenges as well, a colour challenge from The Paper Players and the sketch that CAS(E) this sketch posted.

The Colours that The Paper Players asked us to use are Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach.  I had a little trouble adding the Peekaboo Peach but think that the owl looks pretty good in that colour and sitting on that branch.  The card base was embossed using the Woodland embossing folder and you may have to click on the picture to get a good look.

This card was fun to put together and here’s the list of products that I used.

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!

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 .

THIS LITTLE PIGGY IS THANKFUL

Have you checked out the This Little Piggy stamp set?  It’s on page 48 of the Annual Catalogue and is just so very cute!

The images in this stamp set can be used to send “you go girl” sentiments of a pretty thank you.

I am playing along with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week, so chose to use the thanks sentiment that sits prettily on a small banner.  The Cupcake Cutouts framelits is where I got the banner shape from and I did some rearranging to cut it smaller to fit the sentiment.  TIP: Cut out the banner shape, stamp the sentiment, and then re-cut to get the size you desire.

Our Stamping’ Write Markers were used to add a little extra colour to that thankful piggy.

Here is the full list of products used.

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!

Here’s the list of great products that I used for today’s card.

DAISY’S ALL IN A ROW

Hi and welcome to today’s line-up of daisies.  The Daisy Punch is now available so I thought showing off this card with the Daisy Delight Bundle would be perfect to brighten your Friday.

The Delightful Daisy Designer series paper has some pretty happy designs in it and this design is just perfect for this card.

I did do some “fussy” cutting for the leaves so they could be popped in the lineup.  And, I stamped and cut out the flower centres so they could be popped up on the flowers as well.

If you wanted to you could change the greeting to another to fit the occasion.

Here’s the list of products.  The Daisy Delight Bundle would be the perfect addition to your collection!

PAPER PUMPKIN FUN MY WAY

I talked to you yesterday about the May Paper Pumpkin kit and today I made a card “my way” with the products.

The card base uses the new InColor, Powder Pink and I also added touched of Lemon Lime Twist.  Those lovely little flowers are part of the May Paper Pumpkin kit as are the tiny pearls and the greeting.  So, the story here is that you can use the products in the Paper Pumpkin kits to create your own projects!  Nice!

Here’s the supply list for you.  REMEMBER, the new products will not be available for purchase until June 1st.

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!

THE BEES HAVE IT!

Do you like bees?  Well today’s card shows off a hive of bees!  I wanted to highlight them so starting with Basic Black was the thing to do with a touch of Daffodil Delight.

The background papers are from the Playful Palette designer series paper stack and the stamp set is Dragonfly Dreams from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

I stamped the outline of the bee first using Daffodil Delight and then it was easy to add the rest of the bee with Basic Black archival ink.

So, do you like bees a little better now? Actually, as long as they are on paper, I’m good with them.  Otherwise, if you see me running that means there are too many in my vicinity, lol.

Here’s the supply list for you.
