INSPIRATION IS EVERYWHERE

It may be a little early for dragonflies, so why not create your own.

This colourful pair look great flying around don’t you think?  I stamped them with the Jet Black Stazon ink and used an assortment of Stampin’ Write markers to colour them.  Since dragonfly wings show iridescent, I added a touch of Wink of Stella(141897).

This curvy layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

I don’t have a curvy die, so I lightly marked the curves in pencil and cut them out by hand.  TIP:  when using paper snips, make sure to move the paper as it gives a cleaner cut.

Here’s the list of products used.

SPRING FLOWERS ARE ON THE WAY

Spring flowers are coming soon – we, in Northeastern BC just have to wait a little longer.  BUT…….when you have some beautiful designer paper handy you can make your own garden of spring flowers!

I used a modified version of the “Spotlight” technique for this by using the layering circles dies to cut out an assortment of flowers on scraps of the Flowers for Every Season designer paper(152486).  And then added those pretty frames to highlight them.

The theme challenge from The Paper Players was the inspiration for this flower-laden card!

KANGAROO & COMPANY

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card is a CASE(Copy and Share Everything).  I pulled out the Kangaroo & Company Bundle(156269) ’cause it’s just too cute!

You can find the original of this card on page 17 of the January-June 2021 Catalogue.

There was a lot of die-cutting going on, lol, but it was worth it to end up with this very cute card!  It could be used as a birthday greeting, congratulations or baby card – you choose!

The reason I did this CASE was to play along with the SUO Challenge for this week.

Here’s the long list of products used.  Hint – the Kangaroo & Company Bundle is going away on June 30.

MORE TULIPS FOR EASTER

Since the Timeless Tulips stamp set was on my table, I went with it and added the matching Tulip Builder Punch for a little 3D effect.

I added a pice of designer paper from the Playing with Patterns pack(152490) and used a Layering Circles dies to cut out a piece of the card front.  After stamping,  the two front blooms were put together with Mini Glue Dots.

Then I stamped the smaller tulip images on the inside and left room to handwrite a greeting.

Here’s a view of the front.

You still have time to save 10% on the Timeless Tulips Bundle(153793).

HAPPY EASTER, HAPPY SPRING

On this Good Friday, I wish you a Happy Easter weekend and happy spring!

There’s nothing like a bunch of tulips to signal that spring flowers are just a few weeks away!  These happy tulips where stamped with Bumblebee and Magenta Madness with touches of Just Jade for the leaves.  These are from the 2020-2022 InColors.

The technique, Masking, helped with the placement of the leaves – just stamp the image onto a post-it note, cut it out and then place it over top of the image.  It’s fun and a great way to keep from over-stamping your images.

Here’s the list of products used.

LOVE ALWAYS

Love always makes things just a little better and it’s always time to send love thoughts!  Especially when you have the Forever & Always Bundle(156200).

Check out that beautiful designer paper!  It’s perfect when you want to add a little shine to your greeting and comes from the Love You Always specialty designer paper package(154280).

I stamped the flower in black and then added a bit more pop by embossing with Clear Emboss – it really makes the black pop.

The greeting was cut out in black and then I got the bright idea to use the Foam Adhesive Sheets(152815) to pop up the letter “L”.

This layout that I followed came from The Paper Players and leaves lots of room for interpretation.

FEATURING THE JAR OF FLOWERS BUNDLE

Today’s card ties in with the Easter holiday that’s coming up with it’s bright and happy jar of flowers!

The month of April is full of birthdays for our family so it was time to stock up!  The Jar of Flowers Bundle(154064) will no longer be a bundle in the new catalogue, so I recommend that you get it now in order to save 10%.  I also used the Prettiest Birthday stamp set to add that lovely greeting.

The top of the jar looked a little too plain, so I wrapped it with a length of Braided Linen Trim(147808).

Here’s the list of products used.  Note:  I used the Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker for the tiny flowers.

AN ODE TO SPRING

Spring is coming – it’s just taking its time up here, lol.  I can hardly wait to see the flowers in our gardens bloom!  But, when you have stamps you can make your own flowers – so here you go.

I played with the Art Gallery Bundle(156227) and a piece from the Fine Art Floral designer paper(154558) to set up the background.  And a piece of ribbon from the Playing with Patterns ribbon combo doesn’t hurt either!

This is a 2-step stamping set which makes it easy to create a lovely blend of colours for your flowers!

DOGS BRING SMILES

I remember our dog, Max who always made us smile no matter what!  So this card is in his honour.

Max was a Cairn Terrier (think Toto) who definitely thought that he was the boss.  I tended to disagree all the while laughing at the expressions on his little wiskered face!

This Pampered Pets stamp set and all of its matching accessories sure do help to make a card come together easily!  I used a bit of everything, so look for the Playful Pets Suite(154136) , as it’s on the Retirement list, and get everything you need to create a card like this one.

Here’s the list of products used.
