A Soft Friendly Hello

 


This next class card uses two items you can earn free from the Sale-a-bration (SAB) promotion going on right now with SU! When you spend 100.00 or more on products from SU!, you can earn the set and DSP called Friendly Hello for free!  I am casing the layout from fellow demo Amanda Pitman.  I love using the three panels of the designer paper for a taste of all three colors I am using to color the image.
 I cut the DSP strips 1 5/8" by 3 7/8" and added them to piece of white card stock cut 4" by 5 1/4" then added to the Pool Party base. I ran a piece of Fresh Freesia open weave ribbon around and a tie before adhering. I used the Scalloped Contours die to cut the panel piece I stamped the image and sentiment on in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiment comes as Hello Friend but I snipped the Hello and Friend apart because I will use the Hello more alone. I colored the bird with the Pool Party Stampin Blend marker, the leaves with the Granny Apple Green, the flowers in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink and the limb in SU400. I finished it off with thesome opal rounds gems. 
Thanks for stopping by!
Have an amazing weekend!

Thinking Of Honeybee Home

 


I did some casing for this class card from my friend and fellow Pal Michelle Quinno using the Honeybee Home bundle. I used a white base and then a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock was ran through the new Hive embossing folder. I then cut a piece of the Heart & Home DSP with the Stitched Rectangle dies. I cut about 13" of the demin ribbon to loop behind a Heart & Home doily. I stamped the floral stamp and the two honeybees with Basic Gray ink on white card stock and water colored some So Saffron ink and Misty Moonlight ink with my water color brush. I cut them along with the So Saffron stem using the Honeybee Blooms dies. Finally, I cut a So Saffron label die from the Meadow dies and stamped in Basic Gray in the sentiment from the SAB set called Special Moments. 
Hope you have a lovely Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

Relax In Magenta Madness


I love black/white/hot pink together! I decided to make another class card with the In The Moment set but have the white on Magenta Madness. The image shows up better in person. I stamped in white craft ink and colored a little with the white water color pencil. I cut it out with the largest square in the Stitched Shapes dies. I stamped the sentiment in Magenta Madness on white card stock and punched it out with the Rectangle Postage Stamp punch. For the background, I started with a Basic Black base and added the white Stitched Rectangle plus a strip of Pattern Party DSP and a strip of Basic Black cut with the Basic Borders die. I then ran a piece of Polished Pink open weave ribbon around. I finished with some Black Matte dots. 
Hope your Wednesday is relaxing!

Valentine's Day Card With Sweet Talk Suite

 


This is my Valentine's Day card for classes this month. I used the Sweet Talk suite to make this cute card and I love the purple, red and pink together. I started with the Highland Heather base and added another piece of the same color card stock I ran through the Gingham embossing folder. I cut a strip of the Sweet Talk DSP and added some Real Red faux linen ribbon down for my background. I cut the white rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink plus the X and O in Highland Heather ink from the Sweet Conversations set. I stamped the two hearts from the set on Highalnd Heather and Blushing Bride card stocks and cut them out with the Sweet Hearts dies. I also cut the red hearts from Real Red card stock and the mini envelope as well in Blushing Bride card stock. 
Hope you have a sweet Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

More Relaxing In The Moment

 


I am using the In The Moment set again. Sometimes I will pull out a set and create several projects at one time as I have them in my head. This set is so easy to stamp and color. Here I have stamped the image in White Craft ink and then did a little coloring with my water color pencil in white on Night of Navy card stock. I added the image to a piece of Basic White cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies and stamped with the sentiment in Night of Navy ink. I added it all to a Navy base and ran some retired blue/silver twine around with a tie. I was a quick card and I like the Navy and White together. 
Hope you have an awesome weekend!

I did stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my Stampin Blends markers. I used Cherry Cobbler for the wine, Pool Party for th birds and on the glass, Misty Moonlight for the dress, SU400 and SU1000 for the skin-I colored lifted some of the dark SU400 and added the lighter on top, Crumb Cake for the hat, Smoky Slate for the table and SU300 for the hair. I then cut this out with the Stitched Shapes die and popped it on the DSP piece then a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock and a white base. I did add some Cherry Cobbler twine to pull out the pop of red from the image. I finished with some blue gems.

Driving By For The Pals Blog Hop




Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop in 2022! This month, the theme is Sale-A-Bration. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.



My favorite item from the new spring 2022 sale-a-bration(SAB) brochure is this Simply Marbelvous DSP and I paired it with the SAB set Driving By. My mother drives a yellow VW bug and so I had to make a card with one to send her. I stamped the cars/van in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored them with my Stampin Blends markers. The small car is in Poppy Parade, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party. The VW bug is Mango Melody, Basic Black, Smoky Slate and pool Party. And for the van, I used Highland Heather, Pool Partty, Smoky Slate, and Basic Black. These are easy to hand snip so I did and added to a Stitched So Sweetly white rectangle stamped with a sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black in from the same set. I layered a piece of the DSP in Highland Heather shades and then a Gorgeous Grape base. I wanted to add bling but liked it without. 
Remember, you can earn this DSP or stamp set free with a 50.00 or more purchase from SU! now through the end of February 2022. 


More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Relaxing In The Moment

 


Sometimes I like to have cards in my stash that I do not put a sentiment on so I can write wat I need inside like for this one it might be thinking of you, get well, a congrats on retirement, etc. I would even send tjis for a birthday hoping they have a relaxing one. I stamped the image from In The Moment set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored with my Stampin Blend markers. I used the new skin sets I got to pre order and coming to all in February. For the skin, I used SU900 and for the hair SU300. I used Plished pink for the shirt, Misty Moonlight for the jeans, Daffodil for the pillows, Soft Suede for the trim, and Balmy Blue for outside. I then cut it with the retired Layering Square dies along with the Misty Moonlight scallop one. I popped them on a piece of SAB DSP called Simply Marbleous DSP and then a piece of Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue base. I did add some white twine with a tie put attaching. I finsihed of with some blue gems. 
Hope you do have a relaxing and beautiful day!

Sweet Conversations

 


I was just playing around for the first time trying out the new Sweet Talk suite. I decided to make a cute 4 1/4" square card with Highland Heather, Blushing Bride and Pool Party for colors. I stamped the background 4" square piece of Highland Heather with the X & O stamps in the same color ink. I then cut Blushing Bride hearts from the Sweet Hearts dies to scatter. I also cut the little white tag from the same dies and added the Pool Partybow. I stamped the stripes stamp from Sweet Conversations set in Highland Heather and the large swirl stamp in Pool Party on white card stock and cut them out with the same Sweet Hearts dies in two sizes of hearts. I then stamped the little water color looking heart in Blushing Bride ink and the used a Gorgeous Grape marker on the sentiment from another heart stamp from the set Sweet Conversations and cut it out. 
Hope you have a sweet day!
