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!

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!

Product Used for This Card

It has rained here for the past three days so this is for all those who are having rain!

Bird Banter on A Rose

Bird Banter on A Rose

I love the colors on this card.  My design layout is from SIP Challenge #145.

I like the design of this card, the rose vine with the bird.  It has a very calming effect I believe. The bird makes me think of sitting on my mother-in-law’s front porch watching the birds in the rose bushes.  A very peaceful feeling indeed.

I started with a Tranquil Tide card base.  Cut 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2.  The mat is a panel of Delightful Daisy DSP by Stampin Up.  It is cut 4 x 5.  This is popped on the Tranquil Tide card base. I wrapped a few strands of Linen Thread around the Delightful Daisy DSP.

The art piece with the vine and rose was in a stack of cards I received as a gift when I left my job that was supposedly done away with, only to find it had been given to a board member’s wife.  We’ll save that story for another day.  I colored it using Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, and a Blender Pen. I then fussy cut it, but you know how fussy cuts look there is always a little white border that seems to glare at you.  I used a Blender Pen with Tranquil Tide ink that had been rubbed off until it was faint, then I went over the white edges so they would not glare at me.  I popped this over the linen thread.

The bird was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White card stock using Tuxedo Memento Black Ink.  I then colored it with Tranquil Tide ink using a Blender Pen.  I colored the beak using a Daffodil Delight Stampin Write Marker.  I fussy cut this also and popped it on the rose which was popped on the panel from the Delighful Daisy DSP.

I cut the decorative piece from a small piece of Whisper White using one of the Thinlits from the Petal Palette Stamp Bundle.  I used liquid glue to adhere it to the panel from the Delightful Daisy DSP.

The inside sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up stamp set that was free during Sale-A-Bration a few years back.  I used it at my friend’s house, so do not remember the name of it, but it was one of those sets you had three steps to make the flowers.

That’s all for today.  Come again and thanks for stopping by.

  • Whisper White art piece cut 4-1/4 x 3
  • Art piece stamped in Memento Black Ink
  • Art piece colored using Wisteria Wonder and Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Up Ink Pad and Blender Pens.

The Tranquil Tide mat was adhered to the card base using Liquid Glue.  The art piece was popped on the Tranquil Tide mat.

The inside sentiment is stamped using Elegant Eggplant ink onto a panel of Whisper White which is adhered to a panel of Tranquil Tide card stock.  The Whisper White panel was embossed in the right corner using the Petal Pair TIEF.
