BIRDS OF A FEATHER

Birds of a feather flock together – I think that’s how the quote goes, but today it’s just one little bird standing alone!

I took inspiration from one page of the Bird Ballad designer paper that shows rows and rows of feathers with all of it’s lovely bright colours.

Since I still had the tray of inks and an Aqua Painter sitting on the table, it just seemed right to colour that little bird with those colours(Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape) with a hint of Smokey Slate.  It’s easy to use our Ink Refills and I encourage you to take a look at all of the different colour families.

The layout is compliments of the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge for this week.

IT’S SIMPLY FLOWERS DAY

We have had a very large dump of snow so……it’s simply time for some flowers on this blog.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the snow but flowers are a favourite around here so check out this flower-laden card!

I’m playing along with The Paper Players colour challenge and did a little watercolouring with some ink refills.  I found this little watercolour tray at the dollar store and find it very handy to use.

Here are the colours that we are asked to use.

I’m pretty happy with today’s card and think that the challenge colours go very well with the Bird Ballad designer paper.

IT’S TIME FOR TEA

With the cold and snow we’ve been having lately, I decided that a project made with Tea Together stamp set would be the best way to go today.

This stamp set was carried over last year along with the matching Tea Time dies!  I was following along with the CAS(E) this sketch layout and decide to use our Pigment Sprinkles(Bermuda Bay) and a Stampin’ Spritzer for the background piece.

NOTE:  When it dries it wrinkles the paper so I recommend using Tear & Tape Adhesive to attach it to the card front.

Here’s the list of products used.

THE COLOURS OF FALL

Today I’m focussing on the colours of fall with this card created with the Bloom & Grow Bundle.

Those lovely flowers were coloured with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends in Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron.  When the colouring was done, they needed a good background piece so I went to the Come to Gather designer paper package.  I wasn’t sure at first, but do like the blend of Cajun Craze with the Pumpkin Pie card base and So Saffron mat.

It just goes to show that playing around with colours can show one different ways to enjoy them!

THE WARMTH OF SILVER

Good day to you!  Today’s card is all about silver!  Silver foil and silver glimmer paper with a tiny touch of colour.

The Frosted Foliage Bundle was my choice with that beautiful frame and I just had to add a bit of glimmer with the snowflakes.

This comes from a challenge from The Paper Players to use marvelous mettallics on our project so that’s why silver was my choice.

Here’s the short list of products used.

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY

“Days are beautiful that begin with you”!  What better way to say that than with this lovely greeting card.

It’s such a simple way to send that greeting to someone that you love!

I started off with a card base of Petal Pink and matched the flower using Petal Pink Classic ink.  The punch that goes along with the Floral Essence Bundle makes creating perfect flowers really easy! TIP:  The Leaf Punch (144667) matches this stamp set perfectly too!

The Stitched Nested Labels Dies were used to cut the background designer paper (Perennial Essence) as well as the greeting label.

Here’s the list of products used.

I’m happily off to create a few more cards with this lovely bundle so have a great day and Happy Stamping to you too!

LIFE IS BETTER WITH YOU

I thought that I’d end the week with another creation using the Seasonal Wreaths Photopolymer stamp set that’s coming in the 2019-2020 Holiday Catalogue.  There’s nothing like playing with new products!

And this stamp set is perfect for all-season wreaths!

I pulled out the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches for this so I could also show off a couple of the beautiful designs in the Come Together Designer Series Paper pack.  It compliments the Seasonal Wreaths set so vey nicely!  Here’s the sketch.

And, here’s the list of products used.

DOUBLE THE HAPPINESS

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card features the Varied Vases Photopolymer stamp set and matching Vases Builder Punch.

It is so sweet with those trailing blooms and I’m sure will be received with delight!  To get those flowers and vases placed just right, I used a post-it note to cover the designer paper while stamping the flower images.

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge for the layout which worked perfectly with my idea.

SIMPLY THE BEST

Today’s card is something a little different from my usual style.  I did a little stamp spritzing for this one.

So, I inked up the flowers from the A Little Lace cling stamp set and then used the Stampin’ Spritzer on the stamp before applying it to the paper.  I used Calypso Coral and Blueberry Bushel inks for this.

TIP:  Definitely used Shimmery White cardstock for this technique as it take water well and doesn’t pill.

Then, that imaged need a frame so I used two of the Stitched Rectangle dies to make the Calypso Coral frame and adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To keep the colour the same, I used a piece of Shimmery White to create the card base as well.

Here’s the list of products used.

HELLO THERE

Well hello and welcome!  I felt that his Monday needed some bright flowers so I pulled out the Band Together Bundle and the Pressed Petals Specialty designer paper and got to work.

In case you haven’t noticed, I really enjoy colouring with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends and chose Lovely Lipstick for those bright flowers.  The dies that go with the Band Together set include shapes for leaves so I cut out quite a few to add to those blooms.

There’s a little bit of everything on today’s card and it’s all listed below for you.
