Love and Share What You Do

Love and Share What You Do

This is another take on the Love What You Do stamp set and the Share What You Love DSP.  I like using these two, there are so many combinations of cards you can make with all the beautiful DSP. No challenges today, just my own design. The color scheme is rose and wine colors, using the Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugar Plum colors.

The base is Rich Razzleberry. I then made the made using a panel of the Share What You Love DSP, cut at 2-1/2 by 5-1/4. I also cut a panel of Sweet Sugar Plum, now retired, and put it though the Big Shot using a now retired embossing folder.  I cut around the embossed piece to give it more dimension.  These two were taped together and then popped on the Rich Razzleberry base.

I used an oval stitched die to cut the oval for the art piece. I stamped the art piece using the Love What You Share Stamp Set. I stamped in Rich Razzleberry first and then Versa Mark and heat set using clear embossing powder.  I then colored the poppies using an Aqua Painter and Rich Razzleberry ink.  I find it great that you can turn a dark ink like Rich Razzleberry into a pink ink by keeping on adding the water to the ink until you get the shade you are wanting I added a little bling to it after finishing the coloring.

I used a piece of the Share What You Love DSP on the inside sentiment panel also.

That’s all I have for today.  Come Again. Have a blessed day.  Hoping you got inspiration and encouragement from what you have seen today.

Flourishing Phrases/Petal Palette Happy Birthday

Flourishing Phrases/Petal Palette Happy Birthday

I think this a lovely card with all the embossed flowers and roses I made for a friend’s birthday.  You may  think it is a hard card to make, but it is simple, just multiple layers

 

You can see complete instructions here, better than I can explain Debbie’s Designs

Or you can go to Pinterest and put in Z fold cards and you will get all kinds of cards. There are several different z fold as you will find when you search Pinterest.

This is the card all spread out.

This is the card  folded.  It fits in a regular card envelope.

Stamp the art pieces with the Flourishing Phrases stamp using Tranquil Tide ink and then stamp with Versa Mark and use Clear Embossing Powder to  heat set.  Color using Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz ink and an Aqua Painter.  The Vellum leaves are from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit (retired).  You can cut leaves from plain vellum to use.  I had these left over, so I thought why not use.  The rose on the 1 5/8 x 2 panels is from Petal Palette.

These two challenges are the ones I have entered this card in.  Challenge #134 Embossing

Can It Be Your Birthday!

Can It Be Your Birthday!

Can’t believe the time has come for another Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop, time flies when you are having fun, and we all know it is fun making cards.

I have to admit, I never liked Mint Macaron when we had it before and thought that I would never use it this time. I thought it would be one of those colors that you just let go by. To my surprise, I decided I love it after seeing Jo Hooper cards on The Crafty Crafter.  You can see that I have CASd one of her cards.  I found them lovely and it sure changed my mind about Mint Macaron.

Here’s the card.   Don’t ask me for measurements, other than the basic card base.  I guessed at measurements and did them the way I chose on the card, from the way Jo’s looks my measurement is definitely not the same.

I used the Love What You Do stamp set, paper from Share What You Love DSP, Linen Thread for the bow and the wrap around on the card.  I used a white Uniball pen to make the stitching around the card base.  I stamped the art piece with Mint Macaron and then Versa Mark and used Clear Embossing Powder to emboss.  I colored it using Mint Macron Stampin Pad and an Aqua Painter.

 

The sentiment inside is from the Pretty Kitty stamp set.  Stamped in Mint Macaron on a panel of Whisper White cardstock then matted on a panel of Mint Macaron which is glued to the Tranquil Tide base.

Lovely Floral- Celebrate

Lovely Floral- Celebrate

This is a really simple card.  A one-sheet wonder I suppose, as I only used half a sheet of card stock to make.

 

I used Whisper White card stock and using Stampin Up’s Lovely Floral  DTEIF,  I used Olive Olive, Blushing Bride, and Daffodil Delight Stampin Marks to color the embossing folder then put it through the Big Shot.  I wanted to see how this embossing folder would turn out coloring the folder before stamping.  Maybe it would be better to emboss then use an aqua painter and ink to color the flower.

 

I used a sponge and lightly sponged around the flower with Blushing Bride but it does not show up.

I stamped the sentiment and did not write it down as to the name and now I can’t find it among all my stamps.  I think I used three different stamps for it.
