Congratulation On Your Graduation

Congratulation On Your Graduation

This card is for a dear young woman that graduated last week from my old school.  She is a precious young woman and is taking a gap year to go as a missionary.  I told her I could not be one that goes, so I would be a sender.

Cardstock is Stampin Up in Blushing Bride, Old Olive, and Whisper White.  How would this card look if the base was Melon Mambo, a dark pink and the mat was from the new Highland Heather or Balmy Blue.  The flowers in the card would take on a whole new look.   You can look at the color chart at the bottom of this post.

The embossing folder is Stampin Up’s Layered Leaves.  I used the Stitched  Shape Framelits to cut the Whisper White for the art piece.  The flowers for the art piece are from Power Poppy.  They have beautiful flowers and I just could not resist them once I saw some cards made using them. 

 

I find it amazing that two pictures of the same picture can be so different in color, just from lighting.  One darker than the other.

Two Stampin Up retired punches was used to punch the piece for the greeting.  You can use other punches for this also.

The pearls are from the Pearl Basic Jewels from Stampin Up.  The Linen thread for the bow is a Stampin up product.

The inside sentiment is stamped in Blushing Bride Ink from Stampin Up on a panel of Whisper White.  The sentiment is from Verve Stamps

I am entering my card in the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 446.Here are the cuts for the card:

  • Blushing Bride for card base – 4-1/4 x 11 scored at -1/2
  • Old Olive –4 x 5-1/4
  • Whisper White for art piece – 3-3/4 x 3-3/4
  • Whisper White for inside sentiment – 4 x – 5-1/4

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.

In order to keep our color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, we moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. We’ve also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!

Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections above. You can refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog.  You should have your catalog by now.  If you have not received it, please let me know.  These changes were based on needing to maintain color balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.

Marriage Made In Heaven

Marriage Made In Heaven

I loved making this card as it is white on white.  I think white on white is so stunning.    My card will be for the WWC169-Charlotte’s “All About Occasions” Challenge.

 

Since my card is all white, there isn’t too much you can say about it.  The base, mat, and heart art piece are all Whisper White cardstock.  The mat is embossed using a heart embossing folder that is either from Stampin Up or Sizzix, as Sizzix is stamped in the corner.

I  popped the heart in several places to give more dimension to it.  I also used Rhinestones to embellish the center of the flowers.  The Whisper White Organza Ribbon is from the Occasions catalog, soon to expire May 31.

The inside sentiment is from the Rose Wonder Stamp Bundle (retiring as of June 1)  May 31 will be the last day to purchase it.

I have had a terrible thing, terrible to me anyway, happen to my blog. If you browse older blog post, you will find many of the pictures missing.  How this happened I have no idea.  My blog host told me the only way to get them back would be to insert them again and then post again as an update.  So if you go to older post that is what happened.  They said I must have gotten hacked and the pictures got deleted.  Maybe some of you have had this happen also.  I probably would not have noticed but wanted to go back to an older post to see if I had posted something on it. Did I ever receive a shock when I saw what had happened.  So, beware of your post.

That’s it for today.  Thanks for stopping by.  Come again!

Celebrate The Good Stuff

Here is my card for Freshly Made Sketches this week.

Here is my card.

I  started with a base of Bermuda Bay cardstock cut at 4-1/4 by 11 and scored at 5-1/2.

The black mats are 4-1/8 x 3-1/8 cut from Basic Black cardstock.

The panel of Whisper White and the Petal Passion DSP are cut 3 x4.

These are adhered to the black mats with liquid glue.

The Petal Passion DSP is popper over the panel of Whisper White with Stampin Dimensionals.

The inside sentiment is a Whisper White panel cut 3-3/4 x 5.

The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink from Stampin Up.

That it for now. Thanks for stopping by!  Come again to visit.  Your comments are welcomed.

Happy 80th

Happy 80th

These cards are for a dear friend, no pun intended, in Texas who will turn 80 on Saturday.  I made this one first but really didn’t like it.  I think it is too blah once a picture was taken of it.   I should have just stopped with it no matter how it looks, but being me I could not.

 

Stamp Set: Nature Sings and Balloon Adventure

Card Base: Crumb Cake – Cut 4 ¼ x 11. Scored at 5-1/2

Banner: Wood Texture DSP – Cut 4-1/2 x 1-1/2

Background on Card base: Stamped with Versa Mark using a stamp from Nature Sings

Mat for Large Deer: Basic Black Cardstock 3-1/4 x 3-1/4

Art Piece: Watercolor Paper 3 x 3

Dies: Stitched Layering and Circle Dies

Inside Sentiment: Balloon Adventure Stamp Set

####################

 

SINCE I DIDN’T LIKE THE FIRST CARD I THOUGHT I WOULD JUST MAKE A GENERIC CARD GOOD FOR ANYONE.

  1. Stamp Set: Balloon Adventure—Inside Sentiment
  2. Card base: Tranquil Tide– Cut 4 ¼ x 11. Scored at 5-1/2
  3. Mat: Melon Mambo Cardstock  —  cut 4 x 5-1/4
  4. Art Piece: From Picture Perfect Party DSP—cut 3-3/4 x 5
  5. Wink of Stella on the Flames of the Candles
  6. Happy Birthday Thinlits – One from Tranquil Tide, one from a scrap of another DSP—do not have the name, but you can use any coordinating DSP
  7. Inside decorations cut from Picture Perfect Party DSP—they look 3D when you look at the real thing.

Stay a bit longer, I made a third card and finally gave up trying to make the card I wanted that was in my brain, but I couldn’t get it out for some reason.

  1. Stamp Set: Balloon Adventure and Number of Years and Endless Birthday Wishes
  2. Card Base: Bermuda Bay – Cut 4-1/4 x 8-1/2. Scored at 4-1/4
  3. Whisper White Cardstock —  Cut 8-1/4 x 5-1/4  for Art Piece then scored in half at 4-1/8″. Die Cut using the largest of the dies from the Balloon Adventure Bundle, lining up the center of the die with the score line on your card, then run it through the Big Shot. The die cuts out the balloons, scores and embosses all at the same time.
  4. The balloons on the front were cut using the Balloon Adventure dies and the Balloon Punch from Stampin Up. They were cut from scraps of several different pieces of DSP. You can use what you have in your stash that you like.
  5. The happy birthday on the front is from a many year’s retired stamp set. I like the fonts of the set so use often.
  6. The 80 is cut using the numbers from the Number of Years Bundle.

The Inside panels are 2-1/4 by 5 cut from panels of 6×6  Picture Perfect Party DSP. The sentiment is from Endless Birthday Wishes.  The panel on the right is left to write a personal note.  If you have questions please call or email

It’s really hard to capture the fun of this pop-up die in a picture!  Again, looking at the real card instead of a picture, the balloons on the right and left panels look 3-D.

Well! that is it. I finally gave up and decided I needed to get this posted, no more card making.  I will probably end up making another as these are just not what I want.  Thanks for stopping by. Now on to the fabulous Nanette and her post for the day.

Hello and Thanks

Hello and Thanks

I have multiple cards for today’s post.  Well to be exact just 2. The  first is CAS(E) this Sketch #269

I started with a card base of Marina Mist. Cut 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2.

A panel of Whisper White cardstock was cut 5 x 3-3/4 for the art piece.

I used the Pretty Kitty and Bella and Friends Stamp Set to stamp the art work in the corners using Memento Black Ink.

I colored the art piece using the Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils.  I cut the two balloons from the Birthday Memories DSP. This was adhered to the card base using Liquid clue.

The inside sentiment is from the Pretty Kitty Stamp Set.  

That’s all for this card.

The next card is for the  INKSPIRE_me CHALLENGE #348

 

I started with a card base of Daffodil Delight. Cut 4-1/4 by 11, scored at 5-1/2.

A one inch strip of Basic Black card stock and adhered it to the card base on the left side. I trimmed a stripe of the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Speciality Papers and adhered it to the Basic Black strip.  I cut a half circle and adhered another piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser Paper to it and popped it in the right corner.  The greeting was stamped on a scrap of card stock and popped on a piece of Basic Black.  Both were punched out using retired punches from a few years ago. 

The Inside sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set. It was stamped on a panel of Whisper White card stock which was adhered, using Liquid Glue, to a panel of Basic Black card stock. This was adhered to the Daffodil Delight card base using Liquid Glue.
