BEHIND THE LENS

Behind the lens with cameras, cameras everywhere!  I though that a very appropriate title for today’s busy card.

These patterns are from the Pick A Pattern Designer series paper and I’ve been itching to play with them.  The light came on when I grabbed Marquee Message from the shelf – perfect for my idea!

I stamped the word “awesome” directly onto the designer paper with the Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, added the Versamark.  A little Clear Emboss powder and the Heat Tool and voila!  The rest of the greeting was stamped onto a thin piece of whisper white cardstock and then I added the camera and Rhinestones just for fun.

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

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.

ADD A LITTLE MUSIC TO YOUR DAY

Do you like to listen to music when you’re stamping?  I do and, it may sound early, but a little Christmas music while stamping doesn’t hurt either.  That’s what I was doing while creating this card.

I used the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies to create that lovely frame on the card front and then backed it with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The Carols of Christmas stamp set added the happy greeting decorated with those tiny poinsettias.  The musical background piece is from the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series paper and it was cut to fit inside that pretty frame.  This is one of the cards we will be making at next Tuesday’s card class – want to join in?  Just Click on the Sign Up button and I’ll make a space for you.

GREEN CATS ARE COOL

He, he, green cats just have to be cool, don’t you think?  I sure had fun with this one!

I used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series paper to create the card base and used the Lemon Lime Twist colour to add the extra details.  That lovely black Vintage Crochet trim was just waiting to be used, so why not?

The layout of this card came from Freshly Made Sketches, and here it is below.

The Spooky Cat stamp set has a matching Cat punch and this all comes as a bundle so you can create some great Halloween-themed projects.

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.

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.

BUTTERFLIES AND A LITTLE PIGGY

Good morning!  I just had to combine this cute little piggy with a butterfly on this card.  It looks like the little piggy is showing off a flower to that pretty butterfly.

SUO Challenges has butterflies and/or dragonflies on their mind and posted this challenge to play along with.  So I pulled out Butterfly Basics(138816CM – 138813WM) and added This Little Piggy.

I used out new Glossy cardstock to this card so I could do a little watercolouring.  But, I changed my mind and used a stamping sponge to add the Pool Party ink instead.

A LITTLE MUSIC NEVER HURTS!

Do you enjoy listening to music while you stamp?  I do and sometimes it can get a little loud, lol.  But was part of the creative process for today’s musical card.

I thought the greeting from Lift Me Up was a small “tongue in cheek” way to boost someone’s spirits.  This wasn’t intended to be a Christmas card but it could be transformed into one just by changing the greeting and maybe adding another small image to the greeting banner.

Here is the list of products in case you’d like to re-create this card yourself.

Have a wonderful Monday and Happy Stamping!
