Cherish Dragonfly

 


I wanted to use some more of my Dandy Garden DSP before it retires in June. I grabbed the print which I can punch out a dragonfly to get this Calypso Coral one. I also punched two small ones with the Dragonflies punch from the other side of that same DSP print. I then added the Coral print of DSP to a white piece of card stock and ran some white ribbon around before layering on the Blackberry Bliss base. I cut the stitched square from Stitched Shapes dies in white and then layered on a Blackberry Bliss one. I popped up on dragonfly after stamping the sentiment in Bliss ink from Etched In Nature-a new set coming in the SU! 2021-2022 annual catalog on May 4th. I finished off with some holiday rhinestones in Pumpkin Pie. 
Hope you have a fab day and thanks for stopping by!

PP537 Posy In Polished Pink

 




I made this card for an OnTour event online with SU! this past weekend. I was showing off the Pansy Petals suite and the new in color Polished Pink.  It works great for Laurie's clean and simple birthday challenge over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com  I stamped the flowers, stem and leaves with the Pansy Patch set and cut with the matching dies. The flowers was stamped in Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, and Early Espresso for the center. The leaves/stem stamped in Evening Evergreen. I added it to a stitched rectangle of the Natural Touch specialty paper and another cut with Polished Pink card stock. I popped these up on a print of the Pansy Petals DSP and layered it on a Polished pink base. I stamped the sentiment in Polished pink ink and punched with the Double Oval punch.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

Hydrangea Hill Gift Bags

 


I decorated white gift bags with the Hydrangea Hill DSP and card stock for my guest this week at card classes. I used a piece of the DSP cut 4" by 6".

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

Happy Father's Day Card

 


This is my Father's Day card for classes this week. I wanted to use the Soar Confidently set and do some fun background.  For the background, I started with a piece of Whisper White and sponged on Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue inks. I stamped some compasses from the Sailing Home set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then ran it through the Subtles embossing folder for texture. I added it to the piece of Basic Black card stock and a Pacific Point base. I added a strip of Pacific Point card stock across and added the sentiment stamped in same color on a white strip. I cut two stitched rectangles in black and white. I stamped the hot air balloon on in Memento Black and added a little Pacific Point ink with the sponge dauber. I finished it off with a iridescent pearl. 

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

Thinking Of You In Blooms

 


This fun card is for card classes next week combining the Blossoms in Bloom set and the Brilliant Wings dies. I used a fav color combo in Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green.
I stamped the big floral image from the set in Gorgeous grape ink on a white piece of card stock measuring 4" by 5 1/2" and then I cut it in half so my class can make two cards from this one image. 
I actually cut it after I added the Mango flowers, Granny Apple leaves and the Memento Tuxedo Black centers. I then layered this 2" by 5 1/2" strip on a Gorgeous Grape base with some Mango Melody cut 2 1/2" by 5 1/2".  I then cut two Grape butterflies from the Brilliant Wings dies to pop on. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black and punched with the Double Oval punch along with the scallop Grape card stock. I finished off with Grape rhinestones that are retired. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Hopping By With Kangaroo & Company

 


I have another card for classes next week with the Kangaroo & Company bundle. I went with a neutral color in So Saffron and Mint Macaron in case someone wants to make a baby card with this for class. 
I added the Tasteful Textile embossed So Saffron to the base after running twine around and adding the bow. I then cut a Stitched So Sweetly scallop rectangle in white card stock and stamped some grass in Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Early Espresso. I then stamped the mama kangaroo and baby in Early Espresso on Gray Granite card stock and cut them with the matching Kangaroo dies. I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with the Mint Macaron, So Saffron and Petal Pink Stampin Blends markers. I added a rosy cheek to the kangaroos with the Petal Pink blend. I finished off with a few pearls. 

Hope you have a fun Thursday and thanks for hopping by!

Mothers' Day With A Welcoming Window

 

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Great Family Occasions.” 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 the Welcoming Window bundle and I am so glad it is is carrying over for the next year. I look forward to using it some more. You can see it now in the SU! 2021 Spring mini catalog and it will be in the new annual catalog which kicks off May 4th, 2021. It has a lovely Mother's Day sentiment in the set and so I knew I would use it for my Mother's Day card for classes this year. I had this idea in my head and then my friend and fellow Pal, Brian King, made a card super close so I just had to do some casing.  You can see Brian's card here
I started with the Pool Party Base and added the Soft Suede card stock on top. I then stamped on my Whisper White panel with Cajun Craze ink with the brick stamp in Welcoming Window. I left a white space in the middle for my window. I then stamped the shutters in Soft Suede on white along with the flowers in Just Jade and Rococo Rose and cut them with the matching dies called Window Flower Box dies. I used these to cut the window in Soft Suede and the flower jug in Pool Party card stock. After arranging, I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party ink to finish it off.  


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 May 12th when our theme is “2021-2023 New In Colors” when our Design Team creates a project with the new family of In Colors for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.

Hello Pansy Patch

 


This is my first play with stamping the Pansy Patch flowers and I did some casing from page 28 of the new Annual SU! 2021-2022 catalog which goes live on May 4th, 2021. Looking forward to my card class playing with this new suite next week in class. I started with a white base and added some Fresh Freesia cards tock and then a piece of Soft Succulent card stock for the background. I then stamped the background in Soft Succulent ink from the Tasteful Touches set. I stamped the flowers in Fresh Freesia, Blackberry Bliss and Pale Papaya inks on white cardstock and cut with the Pansy dies. I also stamped a few leaves in Soft Succulent ink and cut out along with some in Evening Evergreen card stock. I then stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch set in Blackberry bliss on a strip of white card stock and cut two more strips in different patterns from the Pansy Petals DSP. I finished it off with a few champagne rhinestones. 
I used 4 of the 5 new in colors on this card- Evening Evergreen Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, and Soft Succulent. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a lovely day!

A Pansy Patch Birthday

 


I wanted to play with the new Pansy Patch bundle along with the beautiful matching paper.  First, this Pansy Petals DSP is so beautiful that I will probably be buying an extra pack. The floral images are great but it some gingham patterns as well that I love. I was interested in seeing how the dies worked to make a flower and still not sure I used them right but was happy with the total card. I cut a white die from the Nature's Thoughts dies and layered it on a piece of the Pansy Petals DSP and added that to a Evening Evergreen base. I then cut leaves/stem from Evening Evergreen with the Pansy dies. I used Blushing Bride, white, Calypso Coral and a dot of Bumblebee card stocks to cut the piece for the flowers. I finished it off with stamped the sentiment from Pansy Patch in Calypso Coral ink.

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

Blooms In Fresh Freesia

 


I cut the white die with the Many Layered Blossoms die and did not use it on a project. I then decided to stamp the new in color called Fresh Freesia with the Blossoms in Bloom large stamp on a piece of Whisper White along with the sentiment. I added this to a Fresh Freesia base and glued the die on top. I finished it off with some gold dots on the center of the blooms. Really nice but super quick card!

PP535 Thinking Of Blooms

 



This is my first play with this lovely set and of course, I had to use one of my fav color combos- Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green.  Jaydee's spring flowers theme challenge over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com comes at the perfect time as I just received this set called Blossoms In Bloom. I did not use the dies this time but they are awesome as well.
 I stamped on the white background the large flower die in Gorgeous Grape ink. I added the black centers and then the Mango Melody small flowers before the leaves in Granny Apple Green. Super quick stamping!  I ran a tri color striped ribbon around the layers of Mango Melody before adding to the Gorgeous Grape base. I then stamped the sentiment from the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on a white card stock and used my Double Oval punch to punch out the sentiment as well as the Grape scallop oval. I wanted to add some bling but decided I liked it the way it was.

Hope you have a wonderful Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

Healing Thoughts

 


I wanted to color some of the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance set with the Stampin Blends this week. I stamped these two butterflies from the set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored them before cutting with the Brilliant Wings dies.  I colored the top one with so Saffron and Magenta Madness blends. I colored the bottom with the Bermuda Bay blends. I added them to the white panel after stamping the middle a sentiment from Well Said set in Memento ink. 
I layered on the Magenta base two prints from the Butterfly Bijou DSP. Before attaching I ran a piece of Magenta Madness ribbon around. I finished it off with some Magenta dots. 

Hope you day is full of beautiful things and thanks for stopping by!

Along The Way

 


I got inspiration from a mood board with my Pretty Pals stamping group for this card. I started with a white card stock panel and used my blending brush to add from top Flirty Flamingo, then Petal Pink and last Sahara Sand ink. I then stamped the sand from the Friends Are Like Seashells set in Sahara sand along the bottom. I attached it to a piece of Petal Pink and then a Sahara Sand base. I stamped the sand dollars in Sahara Sand on the same color card stock and cut them with the matching dies called Seaside Seashells.  I then stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink on white card stock and punched out with the postage stamp punch. I finished it up with some opal rounds. 

Hope you day is beautiful and thanks for stopping by!

FF0081 Soaring For Earth Day

 




It is fun to create a scene with your stamps. I did one here for the Earth Day challenge over at festivefridaychallenge.com using clouds, green blue and trees. Earth Day is Aprill 22nd.  I had some help with the March 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit called Here's To You where I used the cloud stencil to sponge on some Balmy Blue on a white background. I then stamped the trees in Shaded Spruce ink. Some where stamped direct and some were lighter being stamped off once. I then added some birds in Night of Navy ink. Last, I stamped the sentiment in Navy on a white strip to add on the trees. I then turned to my Soar Confidently set to stamp the plane in Navy ink on white card stock and hand snip it out to place in my scene. I layered all on a Balmy Blue cards tock panel and then a Night Of Navy base. 

Hope you have a wonderful Monday and thanks for stopping by!

GDP286 Amazing Seashells

 



I knew I would grab my Sand & Sea suite when I saw the color challenge over at global-design-project.com this week. I used a Seaside Spray base and piece of So Saffron on top before adding the amazing piece of designer paper from Sand & Sea DSP. I wish I could design paper to look like that! I stamped my shells from the Friends Are Like Seashells set on white cards tock in So Saffron, Seaside Spray and Sahara Sand inks and then hand snipped them out. I then laid each in the emboss folder called Seashells and ran it though the emboss machine. Love the texture on the shells and it makes them pop!  I then stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand from the same stamp set on a white Stitched Rectangle die. I added some linen thread wrapped around before attaching all and made a double bow. I finished it off with opal rounds. 
Hope you have an amazing weekend and thanks for stopping by!

I also used another print with the blooms for the panels. I wrapped some Gorgeous Grape ribbon around along with a bow before adding my sentiment from the Tranquil Thoughts set in Grape ink cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies in white card stock.

I wanted to ink up the Butterfly Brilliance large die as a background.

I stamped the sentiment from the Many Messages set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Pool Party cards tock and punched out with the Double Oval punch. I used same punch for the Basic Black scallop oval. I finished off with some black matte dots.

FabFri210 A Better Place

 



I wanted to use this Beautiful World bundle again before it retires in May 2021. I will probably still keep it and use since I love the sentiments like the one I used here and the globes, too! The colors for the fabfridaystampinchallenge.blogspot.com were easy to use with this bundle. I started with the Misty Moonlight base and added a piece of pear Pizzazz and then a piece of Peony Garden DSP in Smoky Slate pattern. I added a Misty Moonlight rectangle which I heat embossed with white emboss powder. I stamped the globe in Misty Moonlight and added a little Pear ink with a sponge dauber. I cut it out along with the brass foil stand with the World Map dies.

I cut the butterfly from a sheet of Butterfly Bijou DSP with the Brilliant Wings dies and added it to a Stitched So Sweetly white label. I added a few mint pearls from a kit to each end. I layered this on a piece of the Butterfly Bijou with pretty bright butterflies and then a piece of So Saffron card stock and a Mint Macaron base.

Butterfly In The Hydrangeas

 


I needed to place this lovely butterfly I cut out from the Butterfly Bijou DSP with the Brilliant Wings dies on a card and decided the Hydrangea Hill DSP would be perfect...especially since I love yellow and purple together. I layered a piece of the DSP on a Highland Heather base then popped the butterfly on the side. I stamped the sentiment from the set Hydrangea Haven in Gorgeous Grape ink on a white label cut from the Hydrangea dies. I then added it on the white Stitched Rectangle die. I finished off with some retired glitter dots in Gorgeous Grape.

GDP284 Adventure Awaits Grad Card






A friend asked me to make her a grad card for someone and I thought of the Beautiful World bundle and matching DSP right away. Then I looked at the global-design-project.com this week and saw Krista had used this same World Of Good suite so I am playing along with their challenge this week. I needed to use colors for the school I was making the card for so went with black, brass, and Cinnamon Cider. I got inspiration from my friend and fellow demo, Rick Adkins over at rickadkins.com   You can see his card here.

 I used a Basic Black base and layered a piece of Whisper White and then a piece of Black embossed with the Old World Paper embossing folder. I ten cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider and added it under a piece of the World Of Good DSP which already has brass embossed on it. I stamped the globe on white card stock in Memento Tuxedo Black and sponging a little Cinnamon Cider ink on before cutting with the World Map dies. I cut the brass foil stand with the same die set. I then stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Cinnamon cider and punched it out with the Lovely Labels pick a punch. I added two matte black dots on the ends of the label. Inside, I used a retired grad set called Pure Gumption for the sentiment and added the black stand and brass globe cut from the dies. 

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

I am playing along with Ann's animal challenge over at thepaperplayers.blogspot.com and I made another Easter card in time to send out this week. This one is on its way to my dad.

Pretty Perennials Split Design

 


I am so happy to be a guest on the Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop today and this split design was so fun to make! Take a look at my cards:












I made two cards with the split design with the Pretty Perennials bundle and some of my fav colors. I try to mirror them with the floral layout but I change the sentiments slightly so I would have a birthday and a kind of congrats card. I started with a Gorgeous Grape base and then layered a piece of Whisper White on top. I stamped my sentiments in Grape and Mango Melody inks. I then blended some Purple Posy ink on the top where I would place my flowers. It does not show up well in the photos since is a light color. I then stamped different flowers from Pretty Perennials set in Mango Melody with Early Espresso centers, Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather plus leaves in Granny Apple Green. I cut these along with tops in Purple Posy and leaves in Granny Apple Green card stock with the matching dies called Perennials Petals dies. I finished off the center of the flowers with pastel pearls in Highland Heather. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Treat Yourself Fun Fold Card

 





I had originally made this fun fold card for my card classes last week but then changed to the gatefold instead. I started with a Blackberry Bliss base but then cut off the front panel at 2 3/4". I then added a strip of Ice Cream Corner DSP cut 2 1/2" by 4". I cut the Pool Party rectangle at 4 1/4" by 3" and a white piece cut with the stitched rectangle die. I stamped the dots in Petal Pink and the sentiments in Blackberry Bliss and Purple Posy from the Sweet Ice Cream set. I used this same set to stamp the scoops with sprinkles on white card stock in Purple Posy, Petal Pink and Pool Party inks plus Blackberry Bliss for sprinkles. I punched these out along with a Cinnamon Cider triangle with the Ice Cream Cone builder punch. I added the waffle design with the same ink color. Inside the card I added a piece of Whisper White cards tock and stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss. I finished it all off with a Blackberry Bliss striped ribbon bow.

I started with a white base and added a Tasteful Textile embossed piece of Seaside Spray card stock on and then a strip of Hydrangea Hill DSP. I then cut a white Stitched Nested Label to pop my flower on stamped from the Hydrangea Haven set in Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock. I then cut it out with the matching Hydrangea dies and stamped over the leaves with Old Olive ink and the solid leaf stamp. I then took my blending brush and blended on Highland Heather ink to the bloom. I stamped the sentiment on the label die in Black ink and added the pastel pearls in Seaside Spray.
