Painted Fall Flowers

JVHL4014

I LOVE this bundle!  I have heard that the Painted Harvest Bundle has been our top seller from the Holiday Catalog!  Do you need a copy mailed to you?  Let me know!

I made this one for our monthly club.  I stamped the smaller of the sunflowers with Pumpkin Pie and then followed it with Crushed Curry for the bigger flower.  The center is Chocolate Chip and Wink of Stella.  I also used Old Olive ink to stamp off the filler leaf stamp and used full strength ink for the leaf detail stamp. Next, I used a sponge with Early Espresso to distress the edges of the card stock and DSP.  To add depth and texture, I added dimensionals and linen thread.

Painted Harvest 1

When I saw the preview of the Holiday Catalog, the Painted Harvest just called my name! Of course it was first on my list when we could pre-order (one of the many perks of being a demo!) from the catalog this month!  I still want to play with color combinations-and I have seen some gorgeous ones on the blogosphere!

This one will be a card for my Sweet & Simple card class on Tuesday, August 29th! (if you are local, come join us!  Just RSVP 7pm-8:30pm)

To make this card, I used Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight for the two yellow colors.  This set is a 2 step stamp set that makes your cards pop!  I aimed for lining up the center with the 2nd stamp.  It doesn’t matter which one goes first. I then used Garden Green and the more water colored fern stamp to make the background.  Next, I followed up with Chocolate Chip for the center and used Wink of Stella (I really need help….) for the centers! I thought a textured background piece was perfect! So I chose the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder.  I added some distressing with a sponge and lightly brushed it across with Chocolate Chip ink.

The Painted Harvest come in a bundle option that includes a Leaf Punch.  It’s pretty darn cute to add a quick accent to your card!  To finish it off, I added some Linen Thread and the sentiment.  All done!

I love the Coffee Break suite! 

I still remember looking through this catalog in April and coming across this suite!  I shrieked loud enough that people down the hall in the hotel had to of heard me! I LOVE my Starbucks!!  So this was just a pleasant surprise-even the color combos!!

So this month’s club I wanted to make a card that was a little different.  An easel card fit the bill!  And they are so easy!  The Coffee Break suite has super cute framelits that can cut out cups, tops, beans, shapes, and cupcakes!  Plus a cute whipped cream (or poop emoji) shape too!  To make an easel card you start with a 11″x 4 1/4″ piece of cardstock.  Score at 5 1/2″ and fold like a normal tent card.  Then you will take the front and fold it back on it’s self and crease.  That will be the part to place your Tear & Tape.  Then decorate a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece to place on top of the folded back part with the tape.

coffee break tentIt will lay flat and look like a normal card until you prop it up on the pearl stoppers.  The inside of the card is hard to see since it’s Crumb Cake.

Here a top view and you can see the DSP strip peeking out.  I just love the beans!!

And of course I had to use Wink of Stella clear for the whipped cream!!  I made a clear lid with the Window Sheets.  And the corrugated pieces are just to stinkin’ cute!!

Daisy Delight Addiction!

I am soooo happy that the Daisy Punch is back in stock!  This is by far my favorite items so far!  So easy to make quick cards like the one above!  I literally made this in 5 minutes flat!  I love to use the color combinations that they have in the Designer Series Paper designs!  I just flip over the pack and read the colors used!  To add more colors you can stamp off your inks for lighter shades of the ink pads!  Gives you more mileage on your ink and color choices!

I just stamped color on color (Wisteria Wonder) and punched out 2 daisies.  Used a couple glue dots to adhere together.  Then I used my bone folder to fluff the petals.  To create the fun fold, I cut the DSP paper to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Then I cut down the center with the Paper Trimmer (helpful because you control how far the blade cuts into your paper). Finally I folded the pieces back on themselves and placed some adhesive on the back to keep them flat.  Crease with a Bone Folder to help.  I finished it off with a Silver Faceted gem and took out my Calypso Coral marker to add the faux stitches.

Bright birthday

I have seen a lot of cards using this super fun Happy Birthday Framelit!  I was trying for a multi layer for height only, but by accident it moved.  I love how it’s offset and really pops off the paper!

I will admit, when I first saw Lemon Lime Twist I wasn’t too sure about it.  But I have grown to love it! It just adds fun, pop, and a touch of whimsy to cards! I wanted a fun background, so I used the two circles from the Eastern Beauty Stamp set!

I then added some balloons to make it more festive!  I cut out 1 Basic Black sentiments and 3 Lemon Lime Twist.  All of the Lemon Lime Twist I glued together with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. (TIP: act like you are writing when you apply the glue-and I used the Silicone Mat to keep the glue off of my surface). Then I applied glue to the Basic Black and off set the letters to create the pop!  I used dimensionals for the balloons and behind the Whisper White piece.

Happy Stampin’!

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.
