A VERY SPECIAL DAY

Birthday’s are special and today’s card is so cute and sure to delight someone special in your life!

I just couldn’t help but CASE this card from page 92 of the Annual Catalogue.  It starts with a card base of Purple Posy(2019-2021 InColour) and goes from there.  The critters are just too darn cute for words and cut out easily with the Special Day Dies((153587).

The new Water Painters((151298) are fantastic, come in a package of three with different sized tips, narrow, medium and wide for larger areas.  I used the wide tip to colour the background for those critters.

Here’s the long list of products used.

CELEBRATE WONDERFUL

Happy Monday and welcome!  Today’s card features the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle(154065) done up in shades of blue.

I found a card like this on Instagram done by one of our Stampin’ Up! Artisans and was really taken with the technique that she used.

The first step was to sponge the colour, Misty Moonlight, onto a piece of cardstock and then overstamp with the sunflower image.  Then, she heat embossed with Clear Emboss powder and cut it out with the flower outline die.  Then, the actual petal outline die(can’t think of another way to describe it) was used and adhered to the top with our Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  Voila, a wonderful and beautiful blue sunflower!

Here’s the product list for you.

SUNNY DAYS ARE HERE

The days have been sunny and warm lately which inspired me to colour some sunflowers!

The Jar of Flowers Bundle(154064) fits the bill very nicely!  There’s 4 lovely bundle of flowers to choose from for some relaxing colouring!  And… a little fussy cutting too.  I love the Jar Punch and frequently use it with Vellum Cardstock so you can see the stems inside.

CASE THE CATALOGUE

When in doubt, CASE(copy and share everything) the Catalogue!  Today’s card was cased from page 11 using the Jar of Flowers stamp set(152515).

If you look closely, you can see the thin red piece of cardstock under the image piece.  I wasn’t sure at first, but do like the blend of the red and Magenta Madness!

The Stamparatus(146276) is the perfect tool to use when lining up images. Just place the stamp and then move your paper as you stamp each image.  Using the Small Grid Paper(149621) helps to keep your paper straight!

LIFE’S GARDEN

Wow, it’s Friday already!  I’m looking forward to doing a little work in my flower garden over the weekend.  We’ve had a ton of rain up here so the weeds have taken off!  Since I’ve been thinking of gardens, I pulled out the Grace’s Garden photopolymer stamp set(151513) and got to work.

This stamp set is full of beautiful images and lends itself very well to colouring.  So a large assortment of Stampin’ Blends to the rescue!  I “cased” this card according to the photo on page 87 of the Annual Catalogue.  The matching Garden Gateway dies(151512) are a must when using this stamp set!

Here’s the list of all of the products used.

IT’S JUST KNOT GOOD

I’m laughing as I post this.  Who has every seen a giraffe with a knot in its neck?

Laughing is the name of the game when using the Back On Your Feet stamp set(149385)!  The images are so funny and should cheer up someone who’s under the weather every time!

I used the new Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends to colour that “knotty” giraffe and backed the image up with a piece from the Playing with Patterns DSP(152490).  And, there’s nothing like a bright card base to cheer someone up as well.

I’m hoping that this will qualify as a Clean-and-Simple card to play along with The Paper Players challenge.

Here’s the list of products used and make sure to check out the Back On Your Feet stamp set too.

SIMPLY THE BEST

Hi and welcome!  Today, I’m playing with the Tasteful Touches Bundle for a clean and simple card.

The combination of the Tasteful Touches stamp set and matching Tasteful Labels dies makes it easy to create a lovely card!  (Get 10% off by purchasing the Bundle)  Since the dies focus on labels only, fussy-cutting is needed for those pretty flowers done in the new InColour, Bumblebee.  Of course, I had to use it’s partner Just Jade for the sentiment and amped it up with an overlay of Versamark and Clear Emboss powder!

The card layout is courtesy of the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

SUCH SWEET GIRLS

I’m feeling a little nostalgic today so am posting this card that I created with the Beautiful Moments stamp set.

I’m calling this Sweet Girls as it reminds me of my daughters who loved to dig and play so a little dirt was part of the game, lol.

I used a combination of Poppy Parade and Balmy Blue and coloured their hair with the So Saffron Blends.  This is another beautiful image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set(151677) and probably my most favourite!

PAMPERED PETS BUNDLE

Let’s start a new week with a hello to our pets!  I love the Pampered Pets Suite and used every item on this oh-so cute card.

We don’t have pets anymore so I was quick to put this Suite(154136) on my shopping list!  It’s a good way to enjoy them!

Both were coloured with Stampin’ Blends, the kitty in Smokey Slate and the puppy in Grey Granite.  I had to get a piece of the Playful Pets designer paper in there so cut an oval of the pawprints and hearts.  I just love this suite!
