HEARTFELT BLOOMS FROM SALE-A-BRATION

Today’s card is focused on the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set.  Hmmm, this week is turning out to be focussed on using our beautiful and fun Sale-A-Bration stamp sets!  Well, why not!

I love the stand-out red for this card!  I stamped that flower image twice.  Once for the background of flowers and the second time so I could cut out the popped up flowers to add a little depth.  I’m actually playing along with The Paper Players colour challenge.

The dilemma for me was how to add the Crumb Cake(kraft) but my ribbon collection came through!  I added a short length of our 3/8″ Classic Weave in Crumb Cake and topped it with those pretty red enamel shapes.  Challenge completed!

As usual, here’s the list of everything I used for this card.

LOVE FROM THE PANDA

There’s more to the Party Panda stamp set than balloons!  How about a little love note.

Isn’t that just too cute?  The Paper Players posted a valentine theme and since the Party Panda set was still on my table – well, there you go!  Also, that set is the challenge for What Will You Stamp this week.  So I’m playing along with that challenge as well.

If you haven’t seen this oh-so-cute stamp set yet, here is the challenge photo.  It’s just one of the Free selections from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue with a qualifying purchase!

 If you look very closely at the photo, you will see that I used the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder(page 5 of the Occasions Catalogue) for a little background interest.

And, here is the full list of products that I used.  Note – the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker from the Brights collection was used to colour in that tiny heart.

VALENTINE BE MINE

Here’s another Valentine idea for you today.  This one is pretty simple and uses the Heart Happiness and Bloomin’ Love stamp sets one more time.

The Paper Players posted this simple and timeless layout that is perfect for any card and any occasion.  You could even use it as the foundation for a lovely scrapbook page!

I did some quick colouring with our Stampin’ Write Markers on the heart and added that lovely sentiment from the Bloomin’ Love set.

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. 

Happy Stamping!

IT’S A GOOD DAY

It’s Friday and a good day to start off the weekend so I thought that this cute and colourful card would start things off on the right foot!

The Paper Players posted a Colour Challenge that had me scratching my head a bit, but the new and coming to you soon, stamp set, A Good Day worked perfectly.  The colours we were to use are Melon Mambo, Powder Pink, Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist, so I used our Stampin’ Write Markers in every colour family to amp up all of those sweet little critters!

NO SHIPPING DURING THE HOLIDAYS:

Just wanted you to know that Stampin’ Up! will be taking time off over the holidays so there will be No Shipping December 25-26, 2017 and December 29 to January 1, 2018.  You can still place an order, but just know that the wait time to receive it will be a little longer than usual.

Take care, have an excellent weekend and don’t forget to get a little stamping done!

THE BEE HAS IT

This bee does have it for sure.  I created today’s card in black, white and crushed curry as a step away from Christmas colours.

And yes, I fussy cut that tiny bee because he just needed to be there!

I followed along with The Paper Players sketch for perfect placement of those lovely designs from the Pick a Pattern package which is ideal for creating many different card or scrapbook page styles.

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

WARM AND COZY

Wow, we’ve had some pretty cold days up here so I got work to create this warm and cozy hot chocolate card.

This is for The Paper Players Warm & Cozy challenge so I thought that there’s nothing better than a cozy sweater and a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter day!

It’s hard to see on the Early Expresso card base, but I did use the Cable Knot embossing folder for the sweater background.  I also used a piece of Watercolor Paper for the cup to help make it look more authentic.

WHITE ON WHITE WONDER

Well, we got more snow and some very chilly temperatures over the weekend which helped to inspire me to create this white on white Christmas card.

This is a 4-1/4″ square card which fits in for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge as well as The Paper Players white on white challenge.

Here’s the sketch that I followed for Freshly Made sketches.

I pulled out the older but beautiful Flurry of Wishes stamp set and had some heat embossing fun with those beautiful snowflake images.

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

CHRISTMAS HAPPINESS – FRAMED

It’s back to Christmas cards for today’s post and I’m using the Christmas Happiness stamp set for this lovely, framed picture.

The Pretty Pines Thinlits dies worked perfectly for this card – the only stamping involved is the greeting!  I followed along with The Paper Players Holiday Pines challenge and am pretty sure that this works.

Here’s the list of products that I used.
