Stampin' Up

Motherhood: A Sheltering Tree, Stampin’ Up

Hey all you stampers! I thought I would give you one more lovely idea for a fairly simple, but gorgeous Mother’s Day card šŸ™‚

This card has lots of layers, which makes a huge impact. But you could use this for SO many other card styles as well. You could even switch out the color scheme to blues, or a tone on tone neutral version.

I will say what makes the card is the sponging on the edges….it really gives a feel of so much beauty and effort with a very simple technique.

There is much more info on the video, so I hope you’ll give it a glance!

As always I love to hear your suggestions and comments, so please drop me a line below,

and until next time…….Stay Crafty !!

Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up

Helping me Grow, Stampin’ Up

Hey there Stampin’ Friends!! How are you? Are you having a beautiful spring so far? Have you started your gardening yet? I did this past weekend, I bought a few early Mother’s Day plants for myself and potted them. A few I bought had some blooms already and I also did a few bulbs too, so I have to patiently wait for those :/ Ā In the meantime, these pretty cards blossomed for me! They would all make fantastic Mother’s Day cards. I used the sentiment from the April Paper Pumpkin.

SeeĀ the kit here——>

 

I did several different versions of the cards, but did a video on the Calypso Coral version.

Hope you like them, but tell me which is your favorite in the comments below!

Going Global Note cards and Gift Box, Stampin’ Up

This is a really cute gift idea for a friend. Whether you just give the little cards and envelopes, or add in the little gift box. You can also swap out the DSP(designer series paper) for ANY occasion, change greetings, there are so many options.

 

You could also use Whisper White card stock instead of the Pear Pizzazz if you wanted a more understated box. I hope you’ll give it a try.

Again kudos to Angie Juda at Chic n scratch for this great project inspiration.

Outside of card holder box (I did restamp the sentiment from what the video shows….I wasn’t happy with the look)

 

Card bases:Whisper White 3″ by 6″, score at 3″

DSP layer 2 3/4″ by 2 3/4″

Sentiment on 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, 2″ Circle Punch if you want another layer

Box: 1 full sheet of card stock 8 1/2″ by 11″; score at 1″ on each side, place in landscape(long side across) and score at 5″ and 6″. Fold all score lines, cut to edge of score lines, trim a hare off if you like, add adhesive and secure your box.

DSP(for card box) 1 sheet, all measurements are on the video as well!

Till next time…..Happy Crafting šŸ™‚

Retiring Products 2016, Stampin' Up

Bird Builder Wreath, Stampin’ Up

On this beautiful morning, here is another really cute and simple card using the retiring Bird Builder Punch. I’m kind of sad it took me this long to make a wreath card. This would also make a pretty wedding card if you used two birds facing   each other. Or  a funny cheer you up style card  for a mom  or dad who’s child is leaving  the nest so to speak ;-). College, summer job, or traveling abroad. 

Keep in mind that the Bird Builder Punch, Stylish Stripes embossing folder , Word Window Punch and the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set are ALL retiring. So if you want any of these head straight to the online store and get them. Sadly, I had an order I was waiting to place and by the time I sent it through ( which was a matter of two days) two of the items were no longer available. So if you snooze, you lose:(.

***The modern label punch was already discontinued, I am sorry for that, you could sub out to just the Word Window Punch, which is also retiring.

 

Bird Builder Punch, Retiring Products 2016, Stampin' Up

Bird on the Dock, Stampin’ Up

A really cool example one of the many birds you can make with the soon to be retired  Bird Builder Punch. So many great possibilities, but if you’ve been with me for a bit now, you know i have an obsession with the nautical themed card.:-). I simply adore the sea and will really miss this set once it’s gone. Also I mistakenly said the Modern Label Punch was retiring but it has already been retired from last year.  However another punch you could use in its place is the retiring Word Window Punch. It also fits all the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamps which is another retiring set. It has so many different holiday and standard greetings it would be a fantastic addition to your collection. My only advice is get it before it’s gone!
Full card demo is on the video, but a quick summary:

Soft Sky base card 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″

Watercolor Paper layer 4″ by 5 1/4″

3/4″ strip for the Hardwood Pier Piling

2 1/2″ scrap of Cherry Cobbler for the life bouy 

And some Whisper White for the bird and greeting piece.

Retiring Products 2016, Stampin' Up

Seahorses By the Tide, Stampin’ Up

I am SOOOOOO very sad this set is retiring…..it is TRULY one of my very favorite stamp sets ever! I thought this was a great card too because it involves a brayer, which is also sadly retiring…..I just don’t know what I am going to do. Brayering and Nautical stamp sets are my favorite things šŸ˜¦

 

This pretty card would be great as a  wedding card, especially if it is a beach style wedding.

It would also make a lovely Mother’s Day , Thinking of you or Sympathy card.

 

 

 

I used a Pool Party base measuring 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″.

Layer of Whisper White 4″ by 5 1/4″, which is what I brayered.

I used Watercolor paper to stamp the seahorses and fussy-cut them out.

Also just HAD to add some Wink of Stella to give a little sparkle šŸ˜‰

Hope you enjoy this card and get to my online store before these Seahorses swim away for good.

Until next time…..Stay Crafty  šŸ™‚

Retiring Products 2016, Stampin' Up

Retiring Going Global, two ways, Stampin’ Up

Here are two simple but beautiful cards done two ways. Well, one way really, I simply inversed the color scheme!

The first card has a Basic Black base card with a Whisper White panel then the Big Dipper stamped in Craft White ink and embossing with clear powder stamped into a piece of Night of Navy.

#1 Craft White ink, with Clear Embossing Powder

 

 

The second card has a Whisper White base card, a Basic Black panel and then I used the White craft ink on the Big Dipper with White Ā embossing powder andĀ  again onto a panel of Night of Navy.

On both cards I used the Versamark ink for the sentiment, but I used Silver embossing powder on one and Black embossing powder on the other. I thought the silver glimmer paper gave it an extra pop. I also went around the second card with the sponge dauber in Night of Navy ink along the cards edge. The first card I used a sponge to do some wisps of white to create those dust clouds you see in space. (well that’s my image of space anyway)
You’d better get this set before it’s gone for good!
