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.

THOUGHTS OF YOU

Welcome and thank you for visiting today!  Do you scroll around through Pinterest for ideas?  I sometimes do and found a beautiful card that uses the Climbing Roses cling bundle. Well, I decided to re-create it myself and this is what I came up with.

I started off by using the Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers and an Aqua Painter to colour those beautiful roses.  I applied the colour with the markers and then used the Aqua Painter to spread and lighten it.  You can also pick up the colour from the marker tip and apply it that way.  Either method works very well.

The rest was putting together these lovely colours and adding a piece of the Grapefruit Grove Organdy Ribbon from the Combo Pack that’s in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

Here’s the list of products used.

I hope that you are inspired to give this colouring method a try, it’s not as hard as it sounds.

Happy Stamping!

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.

IT’S TIME FOR DAFFODILS

Are the daffodils blooming in your area yet?  We still have a lot of snow so it will be a while before we see any daffodils peeking through.  So, I made my own!

Now doesn’t that look cheerful?  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the You’re Inspiring clear-mount stamp set to create this happy and cheerful card.  The daffodil was coloured with our Stampin’ Blends and then carefully cut out with Paper Snips.  I also used an exacto knife to clean out the smaller spaces.
TIP:  If you want to add a little colour to clear epoxy embellishment, The alchohol ink in our Stampin’ Blends works beautifully!
Here’s the sketch…..

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.

HELLO LEMON LIME TWIST

Hello there!  It’s been a while for a new post but we were off enjoying the sun and sand in Puerto Vallarta.  It was a happy break from our cold and snowy weather!

The Paper Players Clean & Simple Monochromatic challenge and Freshly Made Sketches simple layout made coming back home to stamping a little easier.  (Do you find that it’s sometimes difficult to get back into stamping mode when you’ve been away!)

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!

LOVELY LATTICE FROM THE SALE-A-BRATION CATALOGUE

Today I’m showing off two great cling stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  Presenting…….Lovely Lattice and Part of My Story!

Isn’t it just so beautiful?  I see many opportunities with this stamp set – you can make that spray of flowers any colour that you want! I choose to use the colours that The Paper Players challenged us to use, Grapefruit Grove, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.  The fourth colour I choose is Mint Macaron for the leaves!

The greeting is from the Part of My Story stamp set and I did some “masking” to get just the word – friend.

TIP:  I use scotch tape to cover up the part of the stamp that I don’t want to show.  Just ink it up, remove the tape and then stamp your preferred word!

Here’s the list of products I used.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!

SIMPLY THE BEST

Hi there!  Today I’m showing of a simple and pretty card created with the Varied Vases Bundle.  I love the matching Vases Builder Punch, it makes cutting out those tiny vases so very easy!

Of course I had to use the Stamparatus for the placement of the greeting a “squiggly” line under it.

The inspiration for this simply the best card came from the sketch posed by CAS(E) this sketch.  Of course, one could add a lot more details, but I like the simplicity of this card.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  You can click on any picture to go directly to my Online Store to stock up.
