A FRIEND LIKE YOU

Hi there and welcome!  Today’s card uses more of the Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments stamp sets from yesterday with a few changes.

This one is a clean and simple greeting to a great friend. I wanted that wonderful sentiment to stand out so used Pretty Peacock classic ink!

Keeping it simple is the theme for this week’s CAS(E) this sketch challenge and if you look closely you will see the lightly inked and stamped background behind those lovely flowers!

POOL PARTY POPPIES

The Peaceful Poppies Suite is beautiful for sure and today, I decided to change up the colour to Pool Party!

This involved some heat embossing with Gold emboss powder, an Aqua Painter and the Subtles Classic Ink refills!  The flowers – Pool Party and the leaves – Pear Pizzazz.  I used our Shimmery White cardstock as it works really well for water colouring!  I also think I used most of the suite by incorporating the crinkled seam binding ribbon and the sequins.  Awesome!

SINGING IN THE RAIN

Well, it’s not raining up here but I am trying to sing a happy song after being sick with a very nasty cold virus this past week!  That sucker “is a mean one, Mr. Grinch!”

I did find time thought to make this simple card that uses of piece of the Pleased As Punch designer series paper(153558).  There are some very pretty images in this package that coordinate really well with the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Mini Catalogue items.

The Masking Technique helped with the greeting and was fun to put together!

SENSATIONAL YOU

Today’s card features the Sending You Thoughts Sale-A-Bration stamp set for a sensational you card.

I love all of the sentiments in this stamp set and did a little fancy masking to get the sentiment just the way I wanted it!  This card is filled with love and that is why I’m posting on The Paper Players “Love is in the Air” challenge.

The “another year of sensational you” is all one stamp, so I used scotch tape to mask off the words to make it easier to separate them for the card layout.  If you try this, make certain to clean the stamp after every use!

SUNSHINE AND ROSES

It may be very cold up here in northeastern BC, but when the sun shines, it lights up the mood!  So, it also inspired me to pull out the To A Wild Rose Bundle and get creating.

I decided to play around with our Pigment Sprinkles and love the way the different colours add highlights to those pretty roses.  It just seemed appropriate to give them a white edge, so out came the Versamark and White Emboss Powder.  TIP:  I used the Heat Tool to dry the paper after the sprinkles making it much easier to add the heat embossing!

The new Freshly Made Sketches layout came into play here with a piece of the Peaceful Poppies DSP and a small side plate to cut the rounded edge.

Here’s the list of products used.

HONEY BEE BUNDLE

The Honey Bee Bundle is another stamp set that I smiled at while browsing through the new 2020 Occasions Mini Catalogue.  And, the matching dies make it so easy to create a busy bee hive!

There’s also the beautiful Golden Honey Specialty designer paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue to amp things up to a whole new level!  I used a piece for the background on this card.  You can earn this beautiful paper pack with just a $60 purchase!

I wanted to play along with The Paper Players first challenge of the new year.  So this card is the “something new” that I’m playing along with!

ALL OF ME LOVES ALL OF YOU

All of Me Loves All of You – what a beautiful sentiment for that special someone!  And I think that this card will make a lovely Valentine greeting with that beautiful sentiment.

I’ve been using the Forever Blossoms bundle(153781) again – I just love everything about it and the flowers are so easy to colour!

In order to show off a bit more of the beautiful Parisian Blossoms design paper, I followed along with the new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

THIS BIRTHDAY IS NOT FOR THE BIRDS

Hello there and welcome!  I’ve been quiet lately and focussing on Christmas with my family!  I did finally have some time to stamp and created this pretty bird infused birthday card.

There’s always a need for birthday cards in our family and this one has a nice touch of spring to help add a little lightness to our winter.

I used a Sale-A-Bration set, Happy Birthday to You for the greeting because I love the font!

Here’s the list of products used.  Just a note – the Sale-A-Bration set will not be available until January 3, 2020!

Have a great day and Happy stamping to you!

RED ROSES FOR A DECEMBER BIRTHDAY

I’ve been having a lot of fun creating with new stamp sets and accessories from the Spring Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues!

Today’s card with the cake covered in Red Roses is especially pretty!

This is the Happy Birthday to You set that’s a FREE choice ($60 purchase) from page 8 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  It’s perfect for using the Stampin’ Blends!  I chose red to colour those lovely flowers as this card is for my daughter and she loves red!

The background mat showcases the Country Floral 3D embossing folder which works perfectly with the rose theme.

TO A WILD ROSE

Happy Monday and a warm welcome to you!  I recently added the To A Wild Rose bundle to my stamp library and got right to work with it.

It’s so very pretty so to get started with it, I CASE’d the card on page 140 of the annual catalogue.  I used an Old Olive card base as the starting point and used the Corrugated embossing folder to add some texture.

Masking is he technique used here to make it easier to add those extra blooms.  Just use the die to cut out one flower and place it over the first stamped bloom.  Easy!
