A LITTLE MANGO, A LITTLE MINT

I was playing around with the Seasonal Wreaths Cling stamp set on the weekend and came up with this Mango and Mint combination!

The first thing I did was to draw a light pencil line around the second largest Layering Circle die!  This was my guide the stamping the flower flourish in the shape of a wreath.  Once the stamping was done, a White Eraser was used to get rid of the pencil line.  TIP:  It’s very important to use a White Eraser as it won’t leave marks.

Then it was just a matter of colouring with our Stampin’ Blends!  I really like the combination of Mango Melody and Mint Macaron with just a touch of Mossy Meadow.  Then I decided to fussy-cut the wreath as I didn’t like the extra white edges.

MAKE A SWEET BABY ANNOUNCEMENT

Hi there and welcome.  I thought that I would start off the week with these really sweet baby announcement cards.

I don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl, so choose the soft colours of Soft Sea Foam and Daffodil Delight!  The pandas from the sweet Wildly Happy Cling stamp set, were heat embossed with Black Emboss Powder and the greeting was done with the Shimmer White Emboss Powder!

I just love these and I hope that the intended recipient does too!( the plan is to create another 4 just the same)

Where did I get the layout idea?  From the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

THERE’S A CERTAIN BEAUTY IN COPPER

Hi and welcome!  Today’s post contains a card created using the new Celestial Copper Delicata Mettalic Ink!  It is so easy to use and makes the images pop!

Of course, why not add a bit of the Copper-Foil to add a bit more pop!  I used the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder for it as well as the Subtle Embossing folder on the card front.

This card was so much fun to put together for the Freshly Made Sketches layout.  It all came together so perfectly.

A STUDY IN BLUE FLORALS

Happy Wednesday to you and welcome to today’s blue-themed post! I had seen a card that carried a blue and brown theme so decided to give it a try myself.

This is what I came up with!  I used the Floral Essence Bundle with it’s matching flower punch and did some “fussy cutting” as well.  The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is beautiful and this piece is the perfect subtle background!

Here’s the list of products used.

PUMPKINS FOR FALL

Well, it is feeling so much like fall out there so why not focus on some great-looking pumpkins!

The Come to Gather Designer Series paper package contains some great designs and I put my focus on those lovely pumpkins for this card.  Well, I had to add some fall-coloured leaves as well so I could show off the new Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic ink. That’s a mouthful but the ink is fabulous to work with and adds just the right amount of “fall feels”!  So why stop at leaves, why not add a copper-inked wreath as well?!

TIP:  Make sure to check out all of the Delicata Metallic inks on page 16 of the Holiday Catalogue!

The original plan was to play along with The Paper Players colour challenge and I think that I did get all of the colours in.  Plus a few extras, lol!

LAYERED THANKS WITH BLOOM AND GROW

Happy Monday and welcome!  We had a very cold and rainy weekend so I pulled out the Bloom and Grow Photopolymer stamp set and coloured some pretty flowers.  A girl has to do something to get rid of the grey skies blues,lol!

I started out by colouring the flowers on a piece of Whisper White that measured 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Then stamped the flowers again on a piece that measured 3″ x 3-1/4″ and coloured them as well.  Then it was just a matter of placing the Thank You die just so and cutting it out.

Here’s the side view for you.  TIP:  I cut the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals into tiny pieces in order to pop the die-cut up.

The layout is simple and comes from this week’s CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

I was delighted to be chosen as an Honourable Mention from last week’s CAS(E) this sketch with this card.

Here’s the product list for today’s Bloom and Grow card.

A MOOSE IS A MOOSE IS A MOOSE

What better way to end the week than with a moose!  A very merry moose that is!

We’re no strangers to moose up here in northeastern BC and that is why I purchased the Merry Moose Bundle(153015).  I love the images in this set and will have a ton of fun creating with it.

I started off with this great layout from Freshly Made Sketches and went from there.

I played around with those circles for a bit and then and idea hit!  I used a die from the Layering Circles dies and lightly traced it out with a pencil.  Then I grabbed the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and added the dots.  When it was done, a white eraser was used to get rid of the pencil marks.

Here’s the list of products used and make sure to check out the Merry Moose Bundle, it is fun, fun, fun!

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY

“Days are beautiful that begin with you”!  What better way to say that than with this lovely greeting card.

It’s such a simple way to send that greeting to someone that you love!

I started off with a card base of Petal Pink and matched the flower using Petal Pink Classic ink.  The punch that goes along with the Floral Essence Bundle makes creating perfect flowers really easy! TIP:  The Leaf Punch (144667) matches this stamp set perfectly too!

The Stitched Nested Labels Dies were used to cut the background designer paper (Perennial Essence) as well as the greeting label.

Here’s the list of products used.

I’m happily off to create a few more cards with this lovely bundle so have a great day and Happy Stamping to you too!

A WREATH FOR FALL

Good day and welcome.  I’m working on fall-themed cards this week and came up with this one to show a couple of the rich, fall colours.

Our leaves haven’t fully changed yet so I included a little bit of green for this wreath.  Notice the background?  I checked out a new way to add a little texture with die-cuts.  These little images were cut with the All-Around Wreath dies and glued down using the Fine-Tip Glue pen.  (I took a picture before they were glued so I could keep them where I wanted them)

The card layout follows along with this new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

The Seasonal Wreaths Cling stamp set can be found on page 59 of the Holiday Catalogue and can be used for pretty much any season!  Make sure to check it out.
