Masculine Petal Passion

HECN5226 (2)

I love it when I am working on one project, then cut out a piece from the Big Shot, and then a new idea hits me!  I saw the negative of the Petal Branch from the Petals & More Thinlit dies and immediately saw this card!

It was such a simple card to put together too!  I just popped a piece of Copper Foil in the background and matted it with Early Espresso.  A little Linen Thread and a sentiment, finished!  And it’s masculine!  Those are usually my hardest to design!

The pictures do not do the copper justice at all!  It really pops in person!

My son has grown up around me making crafts with Stampin Up! products.  He wanted to make his friend a birthday card, so off to my room we go.  He usually goes through my pieces that don’t make it onto a project and scrap paper.  But I am so proud of what he made!!

He tells me he wants to be a Stampin’ Up! demo when he gets older!  Ha!  I will see what he says when he’s 18!  Until then, I will eat up these moments!

Love My Lavender!

HEMR9526 (1)

When I first saw the Sale-a-Bration catalog, I knew I had to earn the Lots of Lavender set right away!  I love the soft blossoms and that it’s photopolymer!  It makes 2 step stamping so much easier! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and used it for my Quarterly gathering!

I used Perfect Plum for my card base, Petal Passion DSP, and Silver Foil for the side accents.  I already have gone through one of the Silver Baker’s Twin!  So fun!

There is Wink of Stella Clear on the blossoms too!  When I first saw the Classic Label punch, it didn’t wow me.  But I use it all the time!  I love it now!

Colorful Copper Leaves 

Colorful Seasons copper 1

I am so happy that it is finally starting to feel like fall here in Texas!  I wanted to create some cards to celebrate the season!  One of the bundles that I will treasure for a long time is the Colorful Seasons bundle!  It is a must have for a new stamper too! It covers all the seasons and has such beautiful dies to coordinate with the images!  Not to mention the paper, color combos, and accessories to boot!

Part of my monthly stamp club includes a technique.  The members get a sample of the technique and a small blurb that explains how to create it again.  When they first join, they receive a journal to put these in so they have it to look back on for a handy (and pretty) reference!

This card plays up the Emboss Resist technique.  I just switched the embossing powder to Copper!  I then used Sponge Daubers to rub Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler.  (in that order)  I started with the middle of the leaf towards the stem.  I only used the Cherry Cobbler on the tips of the leaves.  I then cut them out as well as one Copper Foil leaf.

I just love how the Copper Foil, Copper Embossing Folder, and Copper Thread make this card pop!

Rustic Rooster

BUMD4726

I have found so many different ways to utilize the Wood Words Bundle!  I needed a birthday card and came up with this rustic looking card!  I got the color idea straight from the picture for this suite right in the catalog!

This card is super easy to re-create too!  So, I made this a club card for my girls!

First, I stamped the floral bunch with Peekaboo Peach on to Peekaboo Peach paper.  I then took 1 1/4″ pieces of Early Espresso paper & the Wood Textures DSP pack.  If you tear slowly away from you the middle of the paper will not show.  I did use a sponge and Early Espresso to distress the edges.  Next I stamped the rooster with Cajun Craze and punched him out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch.  Then I punched the Small Scalloped Circle with Cajun Craze paper.  To give it that extra vintage feel, I crumpled up the paper and flattened it back out.  To give the doily extra fluff, I folded it in half before adhering it behind the strips of ripped paper. I also used the Early Espresso to distress the doily.

I then cut out the cute tag with the tag from the Wood Crate framelit set.  To finish the look, I tied a bow using the Linen Thread!

Cute little piggy!!

EWVG0672

Remember how I like to use the same layout?  Here is another card using the same layout as the previous post!!  I actually was trying to make a different card and it failed.  So I couldn’t waste this cute little pig!! So I just whipped up another birthday card!  You can never have too many of those!

I used the Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the outline stamp of the pig.  If you want to stamp and not include a sentiment attached to the stamp, then use a piece of scotch tape.  You just place it over the words, stamp as usual, and take off the tape before stamping on your card stock.  I then used an Aqua Painter and the top lid of the ink pad to color the image. ASTE7004

I thought the Wood Grain DSP paper pack would look perfect with this cutie!  I finally bought the Classic Label punch and I love how it looks!  And it’s quick too!
