Incredible Bluebonnets

final-4

This is one creative way to use the stamps in the Incredible Like You stamp set!  I saw a few on Pinterest and Stampin’ Up!’s site-so I had to recreate it!  I used Night of Navy and Blueberry Bushel to create the bluebonnets.  To create softer flowers, I stamped twice with the inked stamp before re-inking it.  The stems of the flowers are stamped in Call Me Clover and are stamped twice as well.

I love the cascading from one side to the other to leave room for the sweet sentiment!  To make the outside base look soft and not overpowering, I used the Subtle Embossing Folder. This is a must have embossing folder!  It’s so versatile and I use it a lot!

As you can see, I used Wink of Stella on some of the blossoms to make it sparkle!

After I ran it through the Big Shot, I used Wink of Stella to add some glimmer to the flowers. The Floral Romance DSP was used for a soft and elegant background for the main image.

Then I chose the Stitched Label out of Stitched Labels Framelits to cut out the sentiment.  A couple of Rhinestones completed the look!  We made this card at club for the Faux Canvas technique!

Tufted Petals

watermarked3(2018-07-03-1323)

Wow!  The Petal Promenade Suite is just gorgeous!  I can picture wedding/anniversary cards, birthday cards, and so much more with the Petal Promenade DSP!  The flowers are so soft and blend so well together!  The set, Beautiful Promenade, and it’s matching Beautiful Layers Thinlits help you create stunning works of art with minimal effort!

watermarked4(2018-07-03-1323)

I love that the dies include an envelope liner so your card looks even more special for the recipient!  There are so many fun shapes and images that will meet a lot of your card making needs!

I stamped the inside of the flower with Petal Pink and the outside part of the flower with Fresh Fig.  Next, I cut a 2″ by 3″ piece of Fresh Fig and ran the tag edge on each short end to create a fun tag! There are a couple of border type stamps that add flair to your creation!  I also added some Tea Room Combo ribbon tousled behind the flower. I finished it off with some Wink of Stella, a sentiment, and some leaves!

Simple Hugs

Healing Hugs 1

Wow!!  The dist-ink-tive stamps in the Healing Hugs is just stunning!  Look at the detail!! Berry Burst is still one of my favorite 2017-2019 In Colors!  I paired it up with Granny Apple Green!  (I LOVE THIS Color!) It still gives a pop of green with out being too bright!  I still love Lemon Lime Twist, but this is a new option for pops of color!

I made this card for my upcoming Sweet & Simple class next week (6/27/18 @ 7pm for my local peeps).  I did use the cross-stitch patterned stamp as a color on color image on the card base.  It needed extra depth-but I didn’t want to use the Big Shot on both cards for this class.  I hold a class one evening every month and rotate the night.  I like to have this class available for people that are new to stamping or need a quick creative fix!

Healing Hugs 2

June 22nd is the last day to get your FREE Creative Card Class to Go!  This is great for people that cannot make classes but love to create!  It gives you 3 designs with the same stamp set/bundle!

Love you to pieces

love you to pieces1

I had to have the Love You to Pieces Bundle when I saw the new catalog!  I have a few friends who have children with Autism that I would love to make these for!  I have a few other designs floating around in my head as well!  I can’t wait to get back into the stamp room!

What I really like about this bundle is the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits that coordinate with the stamp set!  Stampin’ Up! now offers Embossing Pads that turn your Thinlits/Framelits into dry embossed images!  So you can create even more with this bundle!

I used 4 pieces of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 squares of the following colors: Real Red, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushell, and Daffodil Delight. I lined them up as shown below-makes for one pass through the Big Shot. how to puzzle

Boy, that close up of my clear plates makes me want to order some new ones!  Wow!

There are a few days left to order the Creative Class to Go!  Click on the June 2018 FREE Creative Class to GO for more information!

In Love with Rooted in Nature

Once again I find myself gravitating towards the Rooted in Nature bundle! The coordinating Nature’s Poem DSP makes color coordination a snap! The colors just pop off each other!

We made this card for stamp club this month. We started by random stamping the big leaves with Tranquil Tide and Grapefruit Grove. We then added the returning favorite Blackberry Bliss with the smaller leaf stamp! Just look at the details in the lead stamps!

Next, we added a strip of a subtle pattern from the Nature’s Poem DSP followed by the Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine. I made the ends frayed for extra texture. You just simply twist the ends to un-twist the strands. I use a piercing tool to comb it out.

The metallic leaves are cut out of Copper Foil & the matching framelits. To complete the look, we stamped the greeting with the Blackberry Bliss on the Grapefruit Grove cardstock.
