ONE LAYER NOTE FOR HOME TO ROOST

Hello and welcome!  Today’s card shows you the one layer look.  And…. it took a lot of thought because most of my cards have at least two layers.  I really wanted to use the soon to be gone Home to Roost stamp set so here goes…..

…..all it took was a little extra thought and some masking!  First, I embossed that handsome rooster with Copper Emboss Powder and then added the wheat using the masking technique.  This is a great technique when you want to layer images without the extra lines showing on the “top” image.  You need a post-it note, then stamp the “top” image onto it making sure that the sticky on the back is a part of the image.  Cut it out and then place it over your previously stamped image.  Check out the photo below.

Then, just stamp the second image over top and you have a lovely layered image.

All of this took place so I could play along with The Paper Players “one Layer Wonder” challenge.  I think I nailed it – don’t you?

It took a few things to create so here’s the list for you.  Note:  I used the Old Olive Stampin’ Write marker to colour the greeting and the stems of wheat.

I encourage you to give the masking technique a try and Happy Stamping to you!

YOU’VE BEEN ON MY MIND

You’ve been on my mind!  Sometimes a thought turns into a lovely greeting card and that’s just what happened today!  The Beautifully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper is the focal point for this greeting card.

Sometimes you don’t need a lot to create a beautiful card!  Just stamp a few butterflies and you’re off!  I used the Stamparatus for perfect placement of that greeting so I could play along with CAS(E) this sketch this week.

At first glance, I wasn’t sure about this sketch but I love how the card turned out!

Here’s the short list of products used.

LASTING LILY DISTINKTIVE STAMP SET

Today, I’m introducting you to the Lasting Lily stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue!

This one deserves a special introduction as it is a patent-pending  “Distinktive” stamp set.  That means that the image is made with a “photo-realistic” style.  This stamp image will lay down the image with different opacities of ink.  The stamp itself looks like it has a flat surface but delivers a great image!

Check out this video to see how these Distinktive stamps work.

Great video!  If the Lasting Lily is on your list, make sure to get it before March 31, 2019!

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

BEAUTIFUL LIFE

It’s a beautiful like despite all the snow and cold don’t you think?  There’s always something great and beautiful to look forward to!

Which is why the Beautiful You stamp set came to mind for tday’s card.  No matter what, we can always dance!  I chose to use Black Emboss powder to accent that lovely dancer and then thought that the opposite in White Emboss powder was a good idea for the sentiment!  Of course, the butterfly background helps to add that touch of spring.

The layout is compliments of CAS(E) this sketch #311 which made it easy to put the idea together.

A SWEET INSPIRATION TO THOSE WHO INSPIRE

There are many people out there who inspire me everyday!  Not only for my paper-crafting business but in the way they handle life’s challenges!  This card was created with those very fine people in mind.

Of course every card needs a great layout and this one from The Paper Players was just one of the inspirations.

I’ve been playing with the Butterfly Gala cling stamp set bundle all week and had those lovely green butterflies sitting on my table.  There were the perfect addition to this inspired card!

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

Who inspires you?  Leave a comment for me!  Happy Stamping to you.

MORE BUTTERFLIES FOR YOU

The Butterfly Gala Cling stamp set bundle is just so pretty and so I present to you another bright card.

This time I used the tiny butterflies stamped in both Pineapple Punch and Gorgeous Grape classic ink!  Also, If you look closely you will see the imprint of the Lovely Floral image from Dynamic Texured  Embossing Folder.  A few pearls, and this bright card is ready to make someone happy!

I was inspired to play along with this fun sketch from the TGIF Challenge blog.

FRIENDLY BUTTERFLIES

Someone said to me the other day that they would be happy with more butterflies – So – today’s card feature a couple of friendly butterflies for a friend.

I started out with a Grapefruit Grove card base, added a matching piece of gingham from the Gingham Gala Designer Paper Stack and went from there.  It took 3 stamp sets to put this together in order to play along with CAS(E) this sketch and I love the soft simplicity!

In order to make the butterflies stand out, I over-stamped them with Versamark, added some Clear Emboss Powder and heat set them before cutting them out.

Here’s the great sketch that was posted.

NOTE:  The Organdy Ribbon Combo pack that I used is un-orderable at the moment but Stampin’ Up! is expecting delivery to start again on March 4, 2019.

LITTLE TEAPOT

Welcome to my blog and a brand new week.  I thought it a great idea to start off with this Little Teapot adorned with flowers to pass on a little cheer to you!

This was one of the cards that we made in class last week that we tried a new technique on.  The Beautifully Detailed Laser-cut designer series paper is truly beautiful so we used a piece of it to add that texture on the Soft Sea Foam mat behind the teapot.  All it took was a Stampin’ Sponge and Pear Pizzazz ink!  So pretty!

The flowers were stamped onto the teapot image which was cut out with the Tea Time Framelits Dies (page 17 in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue).  Then we used various Stampin’ Blends to colour them.

Here’s the full list of products used.
