HUMMING ALONG FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU

Wow, what a cold and snowy weekend we had!  So, while I was tucked away in my stamp room I went to the Humming Along Cling stamp set to put a little spring warmth in my day!

This card is one of the pretties we’ll be creating at this Wednesday’s class!  So simple but packing a Wow with the Blueberry Bushel coloured Humming bird!

I am playing along last minute with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout and used the Envelope Punch Board to round those corners on the background designer paper!

Here’s the full list of “ingredients” used to create this little pretty!

CLIMBING ROSES FOR YOUR MONDAY

Happy day to you and thank you for visiting!  Today’s card features the new Climbing Roses Cling stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

I kept it simple and did a little colouring with our Stampin’ Write Markers!  I cut the large mat panel out with the new Rectangle Stitched dies – perfect for adding that subtle border!

Freshly Made Sketches posted this great layout which made it easy to go for this simple and clean look.

MONOCHROMATIC BUTTERFLIES

Hi and welcome to Cynthia’s Creative Corner!  Today’s card is a study in Monochromatic using the beautiful Highland Heather colour from Stampin’ Up!

Of course, I started with a card base of Highland Heather cardstock! Then I added that beautiful piece of Botanical Butterfly designer paper that is Free(with qualifying purchase) from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

The butterflies themselves were stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock with Jet Black Stazon in and then overstamped with Highland Heather ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to lighten the colour on the wings to give it a little contrast.  This is just one of the cards we will be creating in the Butterfly Gala card class on Tuesday, January 15, 2019.  Have you signed up yet?  Visit my Class Calendar to save your seat.

A WARM CUP OF TEA

Hi and welcome!  I’m starting the week off with a warm cup of tea that uses the Tea Together Cling stamp set and the matching Tea Time Framelits dies.

You will find the Tea Together cling stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and the Tea Time Framelits dies are a FREE choice in the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

The background was created by using the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Vellum.  It’s soooo pretty.

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge to show off that lovely tea cup and beautiful rose.

The tea cup and flowers were first heat embossed with Gold Emboss powder and then the rose was coloured with the Calypso Coral and Old Olive Watercolour pencils.

TIP:  I wanted the embossed vellum piece to stay firmly on the card front so used a Stampin’ Sponge and our Liquid Multipurpose glue.  Just squeeze some of the glue onto the Silicone Craft Sheet and use the piece of sponge to lightly spread the glue onto the back of the vellum.  This way, the glue won’t show and the vellum piece will be firmly attached!

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

HELLO FROM FABLE FRIENDS

Hello from the new Fable Friends Cling stamp set.  This set is full of really cute critters and I picked the little squirrel image to bring greetings to you today!

There’s nothing like bright spring colours to brighten the mood is there?  This little squirrel and his sweet daisy was just too cute to resist and he played in well with the layout from Freshly Made Sketches!

This Fable Friends stamp set is just one of the new Cling stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! has introduced.  They are great – they cling nicely to the clear blocks (no falling off at the crucial moment).  I know that you’re going to love using them.  Enjoy this video below which shows you just how they work.

Here’s the product list for today’s card for you.  You can click on any picture to go directly to my Online Store.

WELL, HELLO BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLIES

Happy New year to you!  I thought that I’d start off the new year with a “kaleidoscope” of beautiful butterflies.  After all, don’t we all count the days to spring starting today?

I followed along with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge as I felt that it was the perfect opportunity to show off this beautiful stamp set bundle from the 2019 Occasions catalogue.  Also, there’s some new framelits that will cut out perfect rectangle shapes for you every time!  The Rectangle Stitched framelits!

Here’s the layout that I followed – I used those rectangle framelits to cut out the vellum pieces.

Everything will be available for you to shop on Thursday, January 3, 2019!

CHEERS TO THE NEW YEAR

Hi there!  I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and are ready to say Cheers to a brand new year!  I’m thinking 2019 will be a good one!

I used the Half Full stamp set because there just “needed” to be a glass of champagne on this card to compliment that great greeting from the Warm Hearted stamp set(2018 Holiday Catalogue host set).

Freshly Made Sketches posted this great layout which was the perfect inspiration for this cheery card.

I pulled the Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker out to give that glass of champagne a little colour and the sequins add a few bubbles here and there!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

A SNEAK PEEK FROM THE 2019 STAMPIN” UP! OCCASIONS CATALOGUE

The 2019 Stampin’ Up! and Sale-A-Bration period starts on January 3, 2019!  I couldn’t wait to show you this sneak peed of just one of the beautiful stamp sets that will be available to you on January 3, 2019!

Check out that NEW Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper!  I stamped the images with Versamark and then heat embossed using the Gold Emboss Powder.  The pretty rose was coloured using Stampin’ Blends and the tea cup and rose were cut out with the Tea Time Framelits Dies which are a FREE choice from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  LOve, love, love!

The stamp set used is called Tea Together which highlights a new element in stamping – Cling Stamps!  These stamps are available in the Occasions catalogue and are absolutely great because they cling to the Clear Blocks so tightly – no more “drops offs” while stamping!

The Year-End Closeout is still going on.  Have you checked it out?  There may be some items that you really want so make sure to visit my Online Store and some items are going very quickly and may no longer be available!

Take care and Happy Stamping to you!

ONE RED ROSE

Hello there!  The days are counting down to Christmas but I decided to feature this one red rose that’s destined for someone over this holidays.

I love the drama of the black and silver backgrounds – they highlight that rose perfectly!  It’s a simple layout compliments CAS(E) this sketch!  Check it out.

The silver glimmer lattice was sitting on my crafting table from a previous project, so I used it as a lovely angled background.  Love it!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

AT PEACE BY THE RIVER

Happy Friday and welcome!  Today’s card features the beautiful Peaceful Place stamp set that’s available in Clear-mount and Wood-mount.  One of the stamps features a lovely, peaceful scene so I went all-in and did a little colouring.

It didn’t take much to add colour using our Stampin’ Blends markers and a touch or two of the Colour Lifter gave it just the right amount of shading.

I choose to use Old Olive as the card base and frame to play along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches.

I have another stamp set in mind for this layout as well and will be posting it next week!

In the meantime, here’s the list of products for you.
