An Art Gallery Happy Birthday

 


I love the color Flirty Flamingo and it makes me happy to use it. I started with that color as my base and layered a piece of the gorgeous Fine Art Floral DSP on it. I then cut a white rectangle with the large die in Nature's Thoughts dies and ran it through the Painted Texture embossing folder. I then grabbed a blending brush and add some Petal Pink ink over it. I stamped the bloom on white card stock in Flirty Flamingo ink from the Art Gallery set and two stepped it with some Merry Merlot ink. For the stem, I used Old Olive ink. I cut them with the matching Floral Gallery dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the set in Merlot ink and cut with one of the cute scallop dies in the die set. 
I ran some gold Fine Art ribbon around and added a bow to finish it off. I love all the texture on the card!

Hope you have a beautiful day and weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking Of A Touch of Ink

 


This is a SAB (Sale-A-Bration) post for sure! I grabbed two items you can earn free with SU! product purchases now thru the end of February 2021. First, I used the Oh So Ombre paper in Bermuda Bay( you can earn this pack of 6" x 6" paper free with a 50.00 purchase) and cut it 3" x 5 1/2" and ran it though the Subtles embossing folder. I layered it on a piece of white card stock and then a Bermuda bay base. I then took the next SAB item A Touch Of Ink stamp set (you can earn this for free with any 100.00 purchase) and stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black along with the hummingbird and the floral image (twice to make a full bunch) on a white stitched circle. I then did a two step with the set it color in the images. I used Bermuda Bay on the bird and Blackberry Bliss on the flowers. I then went back to the bird and sponged a little Granny Apple Green ink on and same on the flowers with Magenta Madness ink.
I then added a scallop Basic Black circle under the white. I finished it off with some iridescent pearls.

Hope you have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

GDP275 Love You More

 



This is my Valentine's Day card this year. I just had to work purple into the black and white. I am also playing along with the love theme over at global-design-project.com today. I used the Forever & Always bundle along with the True Love DSP. A strip of the DSP was added to the white background then a piece of Basic Black and finally a white base. I cut the love in black for the solid background and the white for the word with the Always dies and added them to a Purple Posy heart punched with the scallop punch in the Heart Punch pack. I stamped the flowers and leaves on white card stock in Memento Tuxedo Black before I colored them with the Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin Blends. I stamped the love you more in same ink on white and cut with the a label die from the Always dies. I finished off with some matte black dots. 

Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

CTS404 Amazing Things

 



My first play with the Hydrangea Hill suite and you know my love of all purple! I think it went well for the sketch today over at casethissketch.blogspot.com   I stamped the two floral images from the large flower with stem in the Hydrangea Haven stamp set but cut off the stem.
I stamped them on white card stock in Memento Black then used my blending brush to blend on some Gorgeous Grape, Purple Posy and Seaside Spray inks. I cut them with the matching die from the Hydrangea dies. I popped them up on a piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock layered on a piece of the beautiful Hydrangea Hill DSP before adding to the Grape base. I also cut some Old Olive leaves as well as stamped some blending Old Olive ink on. I stamped the sentiment in Grape ink on a the white die from the same die set. I like that it is stitched. I finished off with the Pastel Pearls I have been hoarding. 

Hope you have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

FMS468 Beautiful Friend

 



I did a little casing from Narelle over at narellefarrugia.com today..love her projects and these colors for the shells. I wanted to use the new Friends Are Like Seashells bundle for the sketch today over at freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com   I started with the Misty Moonlight base and added a print from the Sand & Sea DSP before adding a rectangle of Smoky Slate. I then cut a white rectangle for my shells and stamped some splatter or sand on with Misty Moonlight ink. I stamped all the shells on white card stock in Misty Moonlight ink and colored them with the Stampin Blends in Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate and Pool Party. I cut the small shell with the matching die called Seaside Seashells but the other two I hand snipped. I placed some braided linen trim with the end pulled apart behind the shells and on top, I added the sentiment stamp in Moonlight ink on a Ornate Frame die in white card stock. Love how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Monday!

Beary Comforting Cards

 






I made this card with December 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit called Beary Comforting.
I added a few things that were not in the kit like a strip of Calypso Coral card stock on the first card.
I added a gold foil heart outline on the second and a solid gold heart on the last. I also stamped the bear with the stamp set and colored him with my Cinnamon Cider and petal pink Stampin Blends markers.
I hand snipped him out to pop on the card heart. I also used a round tag from another kit and some cut heart cut outs. 
Hope you have a sweet day!
Thanks for stopping by!

PP523 Dragonfly Inspiration

 




Great color combo challenge over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com today! I had to pull out my Dandy Garden DSP along with the Dragonfly Garden bundle. The dragonflies were punch off a sheet of the designer paper which made this card super easy! I then added them to a piece of the designer paper with a Bumblebee color print and layered it with a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock. I then ran a piece of white card stock though with the Ornate Floral embossing folder and layered it on a Misty Moonlight base. I placed a strip of Bumblebee card stock on before I added my rectangle with images.
I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink on a label cut with Blackberry Bliss card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The label was cut from the new Messages dies. I finished it off with some Misty Moonlight dots. 

Hope you have a lovey and inspired day!

Hope For The Pals Blog Hop

 



Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.



 

 I love getting free SU! product during sale-a-bration or SAB! I am using two today on my project- a stamp set and two prints of designer paper. You can earn the set called A Touch of Ink free when you spend 100.00 or more and the Oh So Ombre DSP when you spend 50.00.

I started with the Blackberry Bliss base and layered a piece of the DSP with dots or circles and then a piece of white card stock before adding the second print of DSP. I stamped the hummingbird in Blackberry Bliss ink and then used the two step stamp to color it in with the same ink stamping off once to make it lighter. I hand snipped the bird out. I stamped the floral image the same way with the same ink color on a stitched white circle and added the sentiment. I ran some white twine around a strip of Blackberry Bliss card stock and finished it off with a bow. Love the monochromatic look especially in my fav color-PURPLE!

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on February 10th when our theme will be “Birthday Bonanza” where the design team will be sharing birthday projects that celebrate our family and friends. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.

Thank You With True Love DSP

 



I loved coloring this designer paper called True Love. It comes in several cool prints in all black and white. I used my sponge daubers to add Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green ink just where I wanted on the floral and leaves images. I then layered it on the piece of Basic Black card stock and a white base. I did add some Magenta ribbon before adhering together. I stamped the sentiment from a new set called Happy Thoughts in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and ran through with my new Stitched With Whimsy dies. These dies do not cut out but just add the fun stitching around. I finished off with a bow. 

Hope you have a lovely Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Of You With Sweet Strawberry



I loved playing with my new set called Sweet Strawberry and being able to pair it with the free DSP called Berry Delightful DSP. I earn the paper free with the SAB or sale-a-bration promo going on now thru end of Feb 2021. I layered the DSP on a piece of Granny Apple Green card stock and then a Poppy Parade base. I cut another strip of Granny Apple Green cards tock to go across the DSP on a piece of white. I stamped the sentiment in poppy Parade in to the white strip then got to work on my strawberries. I stamped the berries in Poppy on white card stock and then two stepped to color in with Flirty Flaming ink. I then did the same for the leaves with Granny Apple Green ink and stamped off to make it lighter when two stepping the inside. I used the Strawberry Builder punch to punch the berries and stems/leaves. After popping them up, I added some retired Granny Apple Green glimmer dots to finish it off.  

Hope you have a berry delightful day!  Thanks for stopping by!

I love the way this card turned out and perfect with 
this color combo from global-design-project.com this week.

embossing folder. I love this texture!
I stamped the flowers from Forever & Always in Memento 
Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my

PP522 Happy Birthday With Shells

 



This is my first card using the new Friends Are Like Seashells bundle.
It is my fav suite in the new mini catalog so perfect for the challenge 
over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com this week.
I did a little casing from the mini catalog which started yesterday. 
I liked the colors and softness of the project on page 78.
I stamped the shells on white card stock in Crumb Cake, Misty Moonlight,
 Rococo Rose, and Mint Macaron inks.
 I used the matching Seaside Shells dies.
For the background, I used my blending brush to blend 
Soft Sea Foam ink on the white card stock and then I stamped
 the sand looking stamp in the same color around where 
I was going to place my shells.
I also stamped on the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink.
I layered it on the Soft Sea Foam base to finish.

Hope your day is filled with all that is good!
Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Art Gallery

 


I decided I had to use this lovely print from the 
Floral Gallery DSP pack since I had already cut into the
sheet for the Pool Party print on the backside.
I layered it on a piece of So Saffron and then a Night of Navy base.
I then stamped on a white circle the floral image twice
(once up and once upside down) in Terracotta tile ink.
I then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and cut it 
out with the die from Always dies. 
I think the die might be a new fav!
I layered the circle on a So Saffron shape 
punched from the Label Me Lovely punch.
I finished it off with a Night of Navy twine bow.
Love how it turned out and when the 
designer paper steals the show!


Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Thank You With Forever & Always


I just received my Forever & Always bundle and this 
is my first play with it.
I grabbed the lovely True Love DSP for the background
and layered it with a piece of Petal Pink card stock

I wrapped the retired Petal Pink ribbon around before attaching.
I stamped the flowers and leaves in Memento Tuxedo Black ink
on thick white card stock and colored them with the 
Stampin Blends markers in Petal Pink and Mango Melody
on the flowers and Mint Macaron on the leaves.
I cut them out with the matching Always dies.
I cut the white banner from the same dies but stamped it 
with a sentiment from the Art Gallery set in black ink.
Added a few pink pearls from a kit to finish it off.

Hope you have a blessed Monday!

Happy New Year and Hello 2021 Mini Calendar!

 




Hi 2021!
I hope you have had a lovely New Year's Eve!
I bought some mini tear off calendars a few weeks back and 
decided to make a new stand up for my kitchen bar.
It is the one I look at the most and so I decided it had to be 
in my favorite color- PURPLE!
I started with a piece of Blackberry Bliss cut 4 1/4" by 11"
and folded in half. Same size as a A2 card base.
I then cut a piece of the same card stock 3" x 4 1/4" 
and scored it at 1/2" , 1 1/2" and 2 1/2". 
I added this to bottom to make it stand up and not fall over.
For the front, I added a piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock cut 
4 " x 5 1/4" and then cut a piece of the new 
Hydrangea Hill DSP for the top half. 
I then glued the mini calendar to bottom half with tear tape.
I ran the striped ribbon around before I had attached the 
Grape piece to the base.
I finished it off with a bow.
I purchased the mini tear off calendars from 
Taylorexpressions.com 
They were 10 for 3.50.

Hope you have a blessed 2021 
and thanks for stopping by!
