Filigree Fun

Who loves patterns and pops of color?  This bundle is for you!  Look at this gorgeous Florentine Thinlits Die!  I see so many possibilities with he negative pieces-so I kept them to the side!

To make this card, I ran a piece of Early Espresso through the Big Shot using the Florentine Thinlit die.  A great feature of the coordinating Florentine Filigree stamp set is the patterns are all on one stamp lined up for you!  Place your filigree that you cut out over a piece of Whisper White. Then place them on a block, ink it up, and stamp where the negative spaces are!

To make the sentiment stand out I stamped it on a small Gray Granite banner piece.  Then I stamped the medallion stamp with Flirty Flamingo on to Whisper White and then again on Costal Cabana with Costal Cabana Ink. (well, I cleaned them in between of course). I used a 2″ and 1 3/4″ circle punch to cut them out.  Next, I layered them and used dimensionals to create more depth.

A few pearls to give it a little extra elegance and we are done!

Thankful Country

KSME2505 (1)

The Country Home stamp set is one of my favorite “go to” sets!  It captures the farmhouse style and delivers wonderful water colored results! Not to mention you can use it all year for multiple occasions!

I chose to stamp the succulent bouquet with Soft Suede ink because it was a water based ink. The Stampin’ Blends worked well with the line color because it was water based and the Blends are alcohol based.  I then chose to color the bouquet with the following Stampin’ Blends: Soft Suede light/dark; Blackberry Bliss light/dark ; Mint Macaron light/dark; Cajun Craze light, and Crumb Cake light. Next, I fussy cut the image out and accented it with Wink of Stella.

I ADORE the Chicken Wire and I pray it stays as a regular in our next Annual Catalog! I used this behind the Country Lane DSP banner I cut out.  Then, I stamped the sentiment on Mint Macaron with Blackberry Bliss Ink.  It’s all topped off with the new Braided Linen thread!  (I am on my 3rd roll already!)

Country Copper

As you can see, the Country Home stamp set if a true favorite!  We are slowly changing our house to the farmhouse style.  So, when I saw this set, I had to have it!  And the Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder is a wonderful compliment to this set!  It creates texture to the background of the card.  To add more whimsy to the card I ran some Copper Foil through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder!

To color the pitcher, I used both of the Night of Navy blends and went over that with the color lifter to add highlights.  Then I used Mango Medley, Night of Navy, Soft Suede, Shaded Spruce, Cajun Craze, and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color the image.  I did use a Color Lifter as well to add some depth to the focal point.

I created the sentiment by stamping the “thanks” from this set with StazOn on to Copper Foil and cut it out. Next, I wrapped some Linen Thread around a few times and tied a knot.

I love how it turned out!  If you love this set-which I knowyou do-then you need to order Country Home today! (It’s the featured set for my card kit-purchase the items listed in September Creative Kit to Go and get the supplies to make 6 cards FREE)

Bring on Fall

I am so ready for fall!  This is the fifth card that I have made with the Blended Seasons bundle!  I used the cut out from my previous card to create this simple fall card!  We are making it tonight at my Sweet & Simple card class!

To create this beauty:

  1. Stamp the leaves with Early Espresso ink randomly on Soft Suede cardstock.
  2. Stamp thank you on a Crumb Cake piece and run it through the Big Shot with the smallest of the Stitched Seasons label die.  (I centered the sentiment more towards the top to leave room for the embellishments)
  3. On a scrap of Very Vanilla, use the Watercolor Assortment #2 and color with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Granny Apple Green.
  4. Cut out 2 leaves and use Wink of Stella to blend the watercolors.
  5. Tie a bow with 2 pieces of Linen Thread.
  6. Dimensionals were used to pop up the sentiment piece and glue dots for the leaves & Gold Glimmer paper.

Colorful Seasons-Fall

watermarked6(2018-08-08-1624)

During the month of August, you can purchase this versatile Blended Seasons bundle!  The stamp set covers fall, Christmas, wedding, and floral images great for any occasion!  Plus, the Stitched Seasons Framelits are a must have for cutting out sentiments or adding that extra dimension to your project!  To sweeten this deal, Stampin’ Up! added NEW Watercolor Pencil colors too! This whole offering is great for scrapbooking too!

There are 3 different sizes of stitched labels that nestle inside one another.  The best part is that the die cuts a stitched outline on both the cut out and the negative!  This alone doubles your value creating a frame to tuck in an image or a sentiment.  That is what I wanted to showcase with my card today!

My inspiration came from a sample that Stampin’ Up! posted for this bundle.  I first off set the smallest of the label framelits and cut out a section of Crumb Cake for the card base. (and kept the cut out for another card).  Then, I stamped the leaves in a random pattern using Early Espresso ink.  Next, I used various colors from both Watercolor Pencils (assortments 1 & 2) to make fall color leaves. (Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Old Olive) I used a Blender Pen to blend the colors together for a more natural look.  I LOVE these watercolor pencils!  They blend so easily with blender pens or water.  Plus, they look great with out using any blending tools!

I cut out 2 Copper Foil leaves and used a bow of Copper Trim.  The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso as well!

img_0540Here is another card idea for the Abstract Impressions set!  This set has yielded at least 4 cards already!  I had to try out the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape!  I paired it to color the stems with Granny Apple Green and Lemon Lime Twist.  The results are stunning!

This card was made for my Annual New Catalog Open House/Customer Appreciation this past weekend. There were goodie bags for those who attended, lots of retired items for sale (I can post a list if you are interested), tons of samples using new products, and wonderful friendships celebrated! It was a great turn out!  And a dear friend took the plunge and joined my team!

My 8 year old begged to make a card with us and I was thrilled with his results! I didn’t help him one bit!  So proud!!

Who is ready for the NEW catalog!!???  I have a LONG wish list!!!  I can guarantee that Rooted in Nature stamp set and the coordinating Nature’s Roots Framelits is a must for your wish list!  Look how quickly you can create simple, elegant, and masculine cards with it!

This card was made for my club members last month! We stamped the tree in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla.  Then, we adhered the Nature’s Poem DSP strip & smaller strip together.  To finish that piece, we tied Linen Thread around it twice and tied a knot.  Next, we cut out a leaf stamped in Grapefruit Grove (a new favorite color of mine!) and a Copper Foil piece too! It was easily assembled onto Tranquil tide and Mint Macaron!
