BLUE BIRDS OF FRIENDSHIP

Today’s card is all about blue birds and friendship.  I pulled out the beautiful Free As A Bird cling stamp set, some Stampin’ Blends, a piece of the lovely Bird Ballad designer series paper and went to work.

Aren’t they just the cutest birds ever?!  They are so easy to colour a look great sitting on that branch!

The colours I used come from this week’s colour challenge from The Paper Players, 

so I used a piece of the 1/8″ Blueberry Bushel grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.

YOU ARE AMAZING

Hi there and thank you for stopping in for a visit.  I went to an Aqua Painter for today’s amazing card.

The Band Together Bundle supplied those bright flowers and leaves.  It has some amazing greetings as well and I’ll probably be using them a lot on projects.

The flowers and leaves were coloured with Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green and I used the matching Stampin’ Write Markers to add the extra shading.

TIP 1:  To watercolour, I recommend starting with Shimmery White cardstock.  It holds the colour better and doesn’t “pill”.

TIP 2:  The Tear & Tape adhesive is great for adhering a “heavy” piece to your card base.

LACY WEDDING WISHES

Hi and welcome!  I’ve been thinking weddings lately so pulled out a newcomer to my stamping supplies to create this lacy wedding wish.

The newcomer to my supplies is the Bird Ballad Laser-cut cards and tin.  It is full of lacy card bases that you can use to create any card you wish.

However, CAS(E) this sketch posted this layout and I immediately thought wedding!

Those lovely roses are from the Tea Together cling stamp set and were coloured with the Highland Heather combo of Stampin’ Blends.  I added a hint of dark Petal Pink to the blooms for a subtle highlight.

The perfect greeting makes the card just right and it comes from A Little Lace cling stamp set.

TIP:  Use a thin bead of Multi-purpose Liquid Glue to add the coloured backing behind the lacy front of the card.

Here’s the list of products used.

THINKING OF YOU

Sometimes you just need to send a thinking of you card off to someone who needs to hear from you.  Today’s card should make that person happy!

It’s a study in soft blues with the combination of the new InColour Seaside Spray and an “old” InColour of Blueberry Bushel.

I downloaded the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches this week for the layout inspiration and pulled out Woven Heirlooms and Butterfly Gala for the focal points.

The butterflies were stamped onto a scrap piece of Woven Threads designer paper and then cut out with the matching punch.  I used the very handy Take Your Pick tool to place them just so on the card.  Make sure to check out this tool, it has many uses!

Here’s the list of products for you.

The best day ever could be a special birthday, an anniversary, wedding or a great achievement!  You choose which one and then create a card like today’s to celebrate.

All you need is a beautiful design from the Perennial Essence designer series paper as the background!  Then add the perfect greeting set off with a beautiful lacy label and you’re all set to wow the recipient!

I think I like the dies from the Band Together bundle the best – they are quite simply – beautiful!

SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL

Good morning!  Since the Band Together Bundle was sitting on my crafting table I just couldn’t resist creating another simply beautiful card.

This time, I paired it up with the Heirloom Frames dies and 3D embossing folders with a touch of the beautiful Woven Threads designer series paper.  I love the combo of blue and terracotta tile!  The flower was coloured with a combination of Calypso Coral and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.

THE DEFINITION OF CHEERFUL

This Tuesday card is the definition of cheerful with it’s bright colours!

I had fun making a mess with the Stampin’ Up! Pigment Sprinkles for sure!  There is an assortment of colours to choose from and I went for Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody and Gorgeous Grape for this one!  They were are sprinkled onto Shimmery White cardstock and then I used the Stampin’ Spritzer to really bring on the colours!  Messy for sure, so make sure to cover your work surface with a layer of paper towels!!

The simple card layout comes from CAS(E) this sketch which is perfect for showing off those cheerful colours.

I love the Praiseworthy Prose bundle with it’s large selection of letter dies and perfect greetings!  Check it out in the product list below.

BAND TOGETHER BUNDLE

Hello out there and welcome!  Today’s card features the Band Together Bundle with it’s lovely flower stem.  I had my eye on this bundle from the beginning because of the beautiful matching Detailed Bands dies.  They pretty-up a card perfectly!

Those dies make the perfect frame for the perfect greeting, don’t you think?  I also love the background piece from the Garden Lane designer series paper!

I took some time to colour those blooms with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends and used So Saffron and Mango Melody for the highliights.

Here’s the list of everything used.

FOR A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY

There’s nothing like the happiness of daisies to celebrate a special birthday and today’s card highlights that happy bloom.

I added a little help with two more stamp sets, the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle for the leaves and Special Celebrations for the birthday greeting!  I’m playing along with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge for this card.

I added the wood look by using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing folder and, to bring out the grain in the wood, added a little Crumb Cake ink and lightly sponged it over the design.

To get the leaves, I stamped the large magnolia image onto Old Olive cardstock and then cut them out.  They were placed on the back of the layered daisy using Mini Glue dots.

Here’s the list of products used.

DAISIES EVERYWHERE

Today’s card features the Daisy Delight photopolymer stamp set with it’s line-up of pretty daisies.

I’ve seen cards with the images line-up along the edge, so gave it a try myself.  It was a simple matter of lining up the cardstock on my Grid Paper and then placing post-it notes along the edge about 1/2″ in.  This way I could stamp the images without leaving “extra” where it wasn’t wanted.  It also aligns nicely with the new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

Here’s the list of products used.  While you’re checking out the Daisy Delight set, make sure to take a look at its “sister” stamp set, Daisy Lane (149325) on page 23 of the Annual Catalogue.
