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.

Kindness Makes A Difference

Kindness Makes A Difference

I didn’t realize when I made this card for a kindness done for me that it can be for three different challenges.  After I got it made, I thought I need to make some cards for challenges.  When I went to look at what the challenges were for the week, was I  ever surprised!

Flowers, ribbon, and bird for this one.

Then there is the Viva La Verve Challenge for the week.

The Third One Tic, Tac Toe Challenge 045.  Flowers, Free, Thanks

I am truly amazed at being able to do three.  For me that is unbelievable.

I started with a card base of Tranquil Tide. Then I embossed a 5 x 3-3/4 panel of Whisper White with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.

The Tranquil Tide mat for the Share What You Love art piece is cut 3-3/4 x 3-3/4.  The art piece is cut 3-1/2 x 3-1/2. I adhered the art piece to the Tranquil Tide mat with Liquid Glue and popped it on the Whisper White embossed panel and wrapped a length of Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon around the panel and secured it on the back with tape.

I then adhered the Whisper White panel to the Tranquil Tide card base.  A greeting from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set was stamped on a Whisper White circle that had been cut using a circle die and a scalloped circle die.  The bird was stamped in Tranquil Tide ink on a scrap of Tranquil Tide cardstock and cut using the die from the Backyard Basic Thinlits Dies. The bird along with flowers that had been cut from the Share What You Love DSP was popped on the circle with the greeting.  Rhinestone embellishments were used on the flower centers, and my usual little heart was placed beside the greeting.

The inside sentiment was stamped using the Petal Palette Stamp Set on a Whisper White panel.  I off-stamped the birds once and then stamped on the panel.

That’s it for today. Visit again.  Have a blessed day!

Love What You Do

Love What You Do

My card for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

My card is made using the new as of June 1, Love What You Do Stamp Set and the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set.  Everyone is going to love these two sets.

I used Tranquil Tide as the card base, cut 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2.

The mat for the Whisper White panel is cut 4 x 3 from a piece of the paper in the Share What You Love DSP.

The Whisper White panel is cut 5-1/2 x 2-1/2. It is adhered to the Share What You Love panel with liquid glue.

This was popped on the Tranquil Tide card base.

I fussy cut flowers from one of the pieces of the Share What You Love DSP and popped on the Whisper White panel that had been sponged lightly with Tranquil Tide ink.

I used the greeting from the Work Of Art Stamp Set to stamp the greeting on the Whisper White panel.

The inside sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set. It is stamped on a Whisper White panel using Tranquil Tide ink.  The leaves on the inside sentiment are from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set.  I  fussy cut a flower from the Share What You Love DSP and popped it on the leaves.

That’s it for today.  Come again!

Be Creative

Be Creative

It has been almost two weeks and we are still in the process of cleaning up from the flood the washing machine gave us.   Getting everything cleaned up has been the main thing so my card making has almost been put on hold.  I have very little time for cardmaking, but it is always in the back of my mind and creeps in with oh I want to use that stamp set and make a card.  I have several sets I have never used and I must use them before all the new stamps are upon us.

I am using the Paper Players Sketch Challenge 390 for my design today. 

I wanted to use one of the unused stamp sets. I really like this stamp set and can see myself using it again.  I have to give Joanne Cantrell, from Illinois credit for my wanting this Crafting Forever Stamp Set.  She had a cute card at OnStage Atlanta and I ask her the name of the stamp set.

I started with a card base of Berry Burst. The mat is Color Therapy DSP matted on Whisper White card stock and then matted to the Berry Burst card base. The circles are cut using the layering circle framelits.  The Ribbon wrapped around the matted panel is Berry Burst ½ inch Finely Woven Ribbon.

I stamped the art pieces on thick Whisper White cardstock using Memento Black Ink.  I colored them using an Aqua Painter and Retired Watercolor crayons.  I applied Wink of Stella Glitter heavily thinking it would show up better in a picture, but found out differently when I took pictures.

The inside sentiment is also from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set, stamped in Berry Burst on Whisper White.  I stamped the Statement of My Heart on one of the cards from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.  The Statement of My Heart is so appropriate for this card as it says Do Something Creative Every Day.

 

That’s all for today. Hope you enjoy and return soon.

Products Used For This Card 

 

Pink and Gold

Pink and Gold

Here it is Monday, and I hope this week is much better than last. Last Monday we had a flood at our house and it has been a mess all last week and there is still cleaning to be done to finish up all the mess that happened.  My washing machine took revenge on me and let me have it big time.  Didn’t have time for one card until yesterday and then I made one for a little fellow that has been having a hard time.

My card for today is a combination of Crazy 4 Challenges and Tic, Tac, Toe Challenge 044. I used the top row across.

I started with a Rich Razzleberry card base. I cut a mat from the Painted with Love DSP. I cut a wedge out of it by marking from corner to corner on the reverse side, so I would know how far to cut the wedge.

          On the Rich Razzleberry  wedge that shows after adhering the Painted With Love DSP, I stamped using Versa Mark the flowers from the Love What You Do stamp set, (The early release for customers runs 1 – 31 May.)  I then used the white watercolor pencil from the Watercolor Pencil packet to color the flowers.  I thought the flowers would be white, but they have come out a lilac color.  I suppose the white on top of the Rich Razzleberry turns it to that color.

       I also stamp a second flower on a scrap of Rich Razzleberry, after coloring it with the white watercolor pencil, I fussy cut it and popped it half on the Rich Razzleberry wedge and on the Painted  With Love DSP.  I added a bit of bling using the Enamel Shapes Embellishments.

The greeting is from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set, stamped on a scrap of Whisper White paper and popped on the Painted With Love DSP.

         The inside sentiment also from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set is stamped on a panel of Whisper White and adhered to the card base with liquid glue.  I stamped the flower from the Love What You Do stamp set on the panel below the sentiment using Rich Razzleberry ink.

This is the card without a bow.  I like it better I believe with a bow.  What do you think?

That’s it for today.  Hope you enjoy visiting, come again!
