Are you new to stamping?  Here is a great card to try out!  Just a few supplies and you are ready to go!  I made this for my Sweet & Simple class this month!  Love this new Berry Burst color with pops of Lemon Lime Twist!

Here is how to make the card:

  1. Cut 8 1/2″ x 11 card stock in half (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″);  Whisper White 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″; scraps of Basic Black, Whisper White.
  2. Ink the water color flower image with Berry Burst & stamp off before adding to the Whisper White card stock. Stamp the flower cluster randomly with Berry Burst ink onto the Berry Burst card stock. Adhere Whisper White piece with water color flowers to card.
  3. Stamp the upright flower out line image with Memento Black Ink. Color with the Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist markers. Stamp sentiment of your choice on the Whisper White square.
  4. Cut out Square Stitched Shapes with the Big Shot. Adhere that image to the Basic Black square as a mat. Attach to card using dimensionals. All done!

Elegant and Oh, So Eclectic 

I won the Oh, So Eclectic set at On Stage in April.  I finally got to play with the set and the coordinating dies this week!  I love the geometric shapes that one die cuts out! This card is for this month’s stamp club!

I first cut the flowers out with the two dies (one for the detail and the outline to cut it out) that nestle together nicely!  (figured the nestle part out the 2nd time) Next, I used the matching ink color to stamp the watercolor image to match the flower cut outs.  I did use Wink of Stella on the centers.  Then I used the Lemon Lime Twist to add that pop of color!

I added some texture with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder!  These are so great for vivid detail!  I finished off the card with Silver Foil behind the geometric pattern and a sentiment.

Crafting Forever Fun

QEVA5281

Crafting Forever is such a fun set!  All of the attendees of Center Stage were presented this set in April at our dinner.  There are great pictures of scissors, brushes, a stamp, and the cute pens above!  There is even a Stampin’ Up! Copyright stamp in there so you can sell your creations while complying with the Angel Policy.

I cut the card stock just a hair taller than the pens.  The stamp has 3 pens lined up-so I just stamped them side by side.  I did make the paper longer so I could cut off the ends that weren’t straight.

I just got my box of goodies and the paste was in the box!  I can’t wait to try it out!

I made this card for this Sunday’s New Catalog  Open House! I did stamp off the Real Red ink before stamping on my paper. I paired it with Wild Wasabi leaves and Basic Black for the pistils. The sentiment is from Eastern Palace, I just straightened the word before stamping. I wanted some texture with out adding too much-so I used the Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder with Real Red.

Truly Courageous!

UDYF9878

Ribbon of Courage is a beautiful set that Patty Bennett (awesome demo!) helped design after reaching her 1 million in career sales!  After going through breast cancer myself last year, I was so happy when I got this set at On Stage!  There is even a matching Framelit set!

IT’s so versatile that you can use any color for the ribbons to help support your cause!  You can use the hearts by themselves for Valentine’s day cards too!  I chose to use the new In Color Powder Pink for my base.  I accented it with Blushing Bride and Whisper White card stock.  The sentiments are beautiful and the images are elegant!

I added the word hope, from the Sunshine Sayings framelits, using Silver Glimmer paper.

High Tide So Serene

By the Tide II

High Tide is a wonderful set to use when making thinking of you cards, sympathy cards, masculine cards, and framed art pieces! I really enjoyed the 2 step stamping that this set showcases!

I am usually a card maker that loves a lot of layers!  This has the texture and movement of the Cherry Cobbler embossed piece underneath the main image.  I used the Seaside Embossing Folder for that and used the NEW Wood Textures 6×6 paper pack!  Can I tell you this pack if FULL of great wood images!  The possibilities are endless with this paper pack! With the rustic farm designs taking storm lately, this is a must for your paper stash!

By The Tide

I first used the Cherry Cobbler and stamped the 1st part of the lighthouse.  Then I used Dapper Denim to add the dimension.  The photopolymer stamps really make this a seamless image! I used Crumb Cake for the sand stamp and Old Olive for the beach grass.  Next I used Dapper Denim for the water waves and followed that with a blender pen to create the softer water color. The sentiment is stamped with Basic Gray so it wouldn’t take over the focal point.  The linen thread was added for a little more texture.

Happy Stampin!

Colorful Beach Season

Colorful Seasons

Colorful Seasons is a beautiful set that has intricate dies (Seasonal Layers) to match! When I first saw this set, I saw so many card/scrapbook ideas!  And the Adirondack chair spoke to me!

This was made for a SWAP that we do at our quarterly team gatherings!  I first water colored the background with Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight, and let it dry while I made the rest of the card.  After it was dry, I used the blender pen to add waves accented with Wink of Stella clear.  I used the High Tide set for the beach grass and birds.  Then I used the Calypso Coral watercolor pencil to add sun set color to the sky.  I went back with my Daffodil Delight in the left top corner to add more sun. I also used the fine tip of the Crumb Cake marker to add bigger sand granules.

Colorful Seasons II

Then I wanted some texture for the background piece.  So, the Seaside Embossing Folder was the perfect choice!  A little Linen Thread and some Dapper Denim to finish it off!

I can’t wait to make a ton of great creations with this great bundle! You can order it starting June 1st!  Be sure to let me know if you need a catalog!
