PARTY HEARTY WITH THESE ZANY ZEBRAS

Why not start the week off in party mood with these cute little zebras!  I smiled heartily when I saw this Zany Zebras stamp set(152536)!

I started out wanting to play along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout and went from there.  Those triangles came from the Playing with Patterns designer paper pack but I wanted to amp it up a bit – so – here comes the zebras!

This is where the Stamparatus146276) comes in very handy, as I stamped them first with Jet Black Stazon ink and then was able to over-stamp with Versamark!  And yes, each one was cut out with scissors to be placed strategically around the Gold Hoop!

Here’s the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  And, I just want to say Thank You for choosing this card as one of the favourites for last week’s challenge.

Here’s the list of all of the products that I used for today’s card

DEAR DEER

We have a couple of families of deer that visit our yard.  One with 2 fawns and the other with 3 fawns.  It’s so much fun to watch them(even when they’re munching on my flowers), so I was inspired to create this card.

The Nature’s Beauty stamp set(150528) was perfect with a little help from Grace’s Garden(151513) and the sentiment from Many Mates(152633).

I stamped the flower bunches with Pear Pizzazz ink and then filled in the blooms with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Each day that these deer families visit is a happy day!  Take care and happy stamping!

PAMPERED KITTIES

Ok, it’s time to move on to a couple of pampered kitties today.  I created this card while thinking about our orange tabby, Riley.

He was a great guy and we do miss him even now!

I coloured those two with the Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends – that colour is closest to the orange tabby look!  I also took the liberty of using a couple of the sweet designs in the Playful Pets designer paper package(152489) – they are all so sweet so it was hard to choose.

Check out those tiny hearts – there is a die in the package that is meant to be footprints and the centre pad is shaped like a heart!  Make sure to check them out!

A LITTLE MORE CHRISTMAS CHEER

Ok, I am loving the Warm & Toasty stamp set(152615) with its cute critters so here is another to cheer you!

What a cutie!  I used a few Stampin’ Blends to colour that cute little mouse and then decided to add a “new to me” technique to send these Christmas cheer greetings.

All I did was cut out several labels from the Tasteful Labels Dies(152886) collection, stamped the greeting and then place them strategically on the front of the card.  Looks pretty cool don’t you think?  Give it a try, it’s pretty easy to do!

SNOWFLAKE WISHES IN AUGUST?

Today I’m introducing the Snowflake Wishes Bundle – in August!  Well, in my defence, we have gotten snow up here is August.  Not this year but the intense heat had me thinking of the snow that will be here in a couple of months!

This bundle(155172) is a beauty, especially when paired up with the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper and those tiny snowflake sequins.

I was following along with the new CAS(E) this sketch layout so it  was easy to highlight those beautiful layers of snowflakes!

The matching Snowflake Splendor designer paper makes for a very beautiful and soft background.

HELLO LOVELY

Ha, it’s Friday and time for a lovely, flowery card – again!

I had cut out a few pieces from the Many Medallions dies so used this one as a background for those lovely flowers.  This time, I glued it down with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue(110755).  It’s good a strong and you only need a little bit!

I followed along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches for this.

Have a terrific weekend and I hope that you take some time to do some stamping!

LATTICE CONGRATULATE YOU

A little play on words there for today’s card.  I played with the Many Medallions dies(153584) for this one!

This die is a bit of a challenge to cut out, but it’s so very worth it in the end!  I decided to back it with a piece from the In Good Taste designer paper to add just a touch of design.  The layered blooms look like they are climbing a lattice and were stamped with the Forever Blossoms stamp set and matching Cherry Blossom dies.  My new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine got a good workout, lol!

The colour combination was taken from the new challenge from The Paper Players.

Here’s the product list for you.

GRATEFUL IN THE COUNTRY

Living out in the country is a true blessing!  We are visited by deer and moose regularly and it’s just so peaceful.  The animals do love my flowers though, so I created some on today’s card!

The Jar of Flowers stamp set(152515) can be used for more than a bundle in a jar and this card does just that!  I wanted to play along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge so that’s why the flowers are placed on the edges.

As you can see, I added some butterflies compliments of the Butterfly Gala stamp set(148580) and that greeting from Country Home stamp set(147678) says it all!

WARM & TOASTY

From summer flowers to warm and toasty winter!  Only in the stamping world!  I just couldn’t resist the snowman in the new Warm & Toasty stamp set(152615) that’s in the 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue!

Isn’t that the cutest snowman ever?!  And, he can skate!  I kept this card really clean and simple so that active snowman would stand out.  His scarf was coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers, Shaded Spruce, Real Red and Seaside Spray.  A background mat of Real Red sets him off along with the red in the “Tis the Season Designer Paper.

Here’s the list of products for you.

A LITTLE JOY TO START THE WEEK

Hi, I hope that you had a great weekend filled with brightness and joy!  Ours was busy as we enjoyed the lovely bright and sunny weather, so what better way to start the week than with a really bright card!

This card brings me joy for sure especially since I got to use the new Joy Dies(153530).  They have both the word and the base with 2 sizes to choose from.  Make sure to check them out in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue 2020!

I’m also playing along with the SUO Challenge which is a designer’s choice.  I think this card fits, don’t you?

Here’s the product list for you.
