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.

BEST DAY EVER

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.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA

Today, Canada is celebrating it’s 152nd birthday!  Happy Canada day to my fellow Canadians!

I wanted the background to look like fireworks so brought out the new Pigment Sprinkles and a Stampin’ Spritzer!  Looks like fireworks to me!

The maple leaves were heat embossed with White and then cut out with the Seasonal Layers dies and I love that greeting from Praiseworthy Prose!

The layout for this celebratory card comes from Freshly Made Sketches, which made it easy to put this whole card together!

FRIENDSHIP DEFINED

Have you ever wondered what the true meaning of friendship is?  Wonder no more – the Praiseworthy Prose Cling stamp set can help by adding the definition and I used it for today’s card!

Of course, when one is thinking of a friend, why not add some beautiful flowers!  I had these magnolias stamped and waiting for some ink, so coloured them with our Stampin’ Blends and placed them just so.  There was also a piece of “lace” sitting on my table and I decided that it would be the perfect backdrop for that lovely greeting!  I really love the purple theme on this card!

SOMEBODY LOVES YOU

I’ve been thinking of all of the wonderful people in my life and it inspired me to create this card to show that there is always somebody loves you!

The Butterfly Gala stamp set and matching punch were put to good use here along with that lovely greeting from the new Parcels & Petals stamp set.

Of course a good layout was needed and CAS(E) this sketch provided it.

This card also shows off two of our fabulous new InColors, Pretty Peacock(card base and butterflies) and Rococo Rose for the greeting.

ONE RED ROSE

Hi and thank you for visiting today.  I’m a little late with this post but am happy to be able to show you this one red rose.

I had some fun colouring with our fabulous Stampin’ Up! blends and love the way this rose turned out.  You are probably asking why it’s been cut into tiny squares – right?  Well, Freshly Made Sketches posted this layout and so I challenged myself to play along.

It took some patience to get those tiny squares lined up but I’m sure happy with the result!

TIP:  Start by placing the outside pieces and then add the others – it helps to make sure that they are all lined up as perfectly as possible.

The pearls were a necessary addition as far as I’m concerned and the Take Your Pick tool (144107) helped a lot with placement!

Here’s the list of products used in case you’d like to try it for yourself.

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.

BEAUTIFUL WITH LOVELY LATTICE

Today, I present you with a bright and beautiful take on the Lovely Lattice stamp set!

This set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue will be going away forever on March 31, 2019 so I felt that it needed a bit more love.

I’ve been experimenting with using coordinating colours from the Stampin’ Blends collection and love the way this one turned out.  Adding that lovely variegated ribbon works perfectly with the colour scheme and gives the perfect finish!  And…no card is complete with out the perfect greeting!  This one, compliments of the Part of My Story stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.
