Freshly Made Sketches #38

A very good morning to you all! How was everyone’s Saturday? Mine was great, I crafted all day! I got all of the elements stamped and cut for the invitations that I’m making and I’ll put them together tomorrow. As an added bonus I was a Cut Above over at the Paper Players! I love playing along each week with the fabulous ladies over there. You can see the original post here and see the Paper Players post here. For today’s card I made a card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches. Linda Callaghan has come up with this sketch for this week…

I looked at the sketch and decided to use the new From My Heart Stamp Set. The image is nice and large and can stand all on it’s own. I stamped it in Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla Card Stock and backed it with a piece of Red Riding Hood Card Stock. A piece of Riding Hood Red 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon from the Clearance Rack is tied around the bottom and some Basic Jewels Pearls are added to the four corners. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount it to the card. The top layer of the background is a piece of Fan Fair Designer Series Paper. Under that is a piece of More Mustard that I used the new Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies on. Everything is adhered to a base of Riding Hood Red Card Stock. What a nice card to send to a friend just to let them know that you are thinking of them. I hope that you liked today’s card and thank you so much for checking in. Have a great Sunday!

Indigo Argyle Amazing Card

Good morning everyone! How are all of you on this beautiful Saturday? I’m good and getting all geared up to start my invitation making marathon! I will have to escape for a little while today, especially if it stays sunny out. 🙂 Today’s card is another one that uses all new products for the new 2012-2013 Catalog and also would make a great masculine card. The base of the card is Island Indigo Card Stock. I used the Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with a piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock for the background. The images and greeting are from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set and are stamped in Island Indigo. The large image is cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. I used the Paper-Piercing Essentials Pack, Stampin’ Pierce Mat and the Paper-Piercer to create the border. I love it because it has templates for a lot of the Framelits and Punches and you can either do create a pierced border inside or outside the cutout. The “Amazing” is stamped again and cut out with my Paper Snips and popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two pieces of Island Indigo 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon are adhered to the back and then it is attached to the background with more Stampin Dimensionals.  I used the Ticket Builder Duo Punch to punch out the “winner” tickets and adhered them with Stampin Dimensionals too. Who wouldn’t want to get a card that says You’re Amazing for a birthday, thank you or just because. Thanks for visiting today and enjoy your day!

Burgundy Delicate Heart Postage Birthday

Good morning everyone and HAPPY FRIDAY! One of my favorite days of the week! I have lots of crafting to do this weekend, birthday invitations and wedding invitations, I’ll be busy but loving every minute of it! Today’s card is a quick and easy card to make. It has lots of texture and dimension and I used a color combination that I haven’t used before. I started with a base of Sahara Sand, a color that I often forget about but I think I will use more in the future. I used the new Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with some Bravo Burgundy for the strip on the right side. The large stamped image is from the Postage Due Stamp Set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip. The postage stamp is from the same set and is stamped in Bravo Burgundy on Sahara Sand and punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch. The greeting is from the From My Heart Stamp Set and is stamped in Bravo Burgundy and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. The large image, postage stamp and greeting are all adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the elegant simplicity and I think that you could even get away with using this for a masculine card too. Thank you for visiting today and I hope that you have a great Friday!

Primrose Lacy Papillon Fan Hello

Happy Thursday! I got my box-o-stampin’ goodies yesterday! It was just like Christmas… only better! Today’s card was made from some of the new stuff that I got yesterday. I started with a base of Primrose Petals Card Stock. I used my Big Shot and ran a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock through with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Before I adhered it to the front of the card I took a piece of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon and wrapped it around the sides and adhered it with Sticky Strip. The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and are stamped in Primrose Petals Ink. I used the coordinating Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch them out. The Hello is from the Lacy & Lovely Stamp Set and is also stamped in Primrose Petals Ink and cut out with my Paper Snips. The teeny tiny label is from the Lovely Little Labels Stamp Set, also stamped in Primrose Petals Ink, and punched out with the Little Labels Punch Pack. All of the stamped items are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the simplicity and elegance of the card. The Fancy Fan embossing really helps to make the images pop. Thank you for checking in with me and have an amazing day!

Mojo 244

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Half way there kiddies! I am super happy today because my new catalog order is coming this afternoon. I can’t wait to play with some new stamps! 🙂 Today’s card is for this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. The sketch is provided by Julee Tilman…

Everything on today’s card is from the new 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. I started with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock and added a piece of Baja Breeze on top. Before I adhered it to the card I took a piece of Soft Suede 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and wrapped it around the sides and adhered it with some Sticky Strip. I used one of the new Naturals Designer Buttons and tied some Linen Thread in a bow and adhered it with a Mini Glue Dot. The strip of Designer Series Paper is Comfort Café and I punched some Soft Suede with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and placed it behind the DSP and also behind the main image. The backing for the main image is Midnight Muse. I used the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die to cut out the scalloped circle in Soft Suede. The stamp is from the Layered Labels Stamp Set and is stamped in Midnight Muse and cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. I stamped it again in Baja Breeze and used the 1″ Circle Punch to punch out the create. The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and is stamped in Cajun Craze and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. The backing was also cut out using the Bitty Banners Framoelits Dies. I hope that you like this weeks Mojo Monday Card and thank you for taking a look. Have a great day! 🙂

High Line Rose Wings Believe Frame

Good morning peeps. How was everyone’s Monday. Mine was good because I had card class! It nice because my daughter Taylor comes with me and we get to laugh and make cards for a few hours. Today’s project is a picture in a frame. I wanted to show how you can use some simple elements to embellish a picture. The picture was taken in Manhattan at the High Line which is an old section of elevated freight train track the runs from Gansevoort Street to West 20th Street on the West Side that they have turned into a green space. I went there a few months ago with my friend Kim and took this picture of a flower. I’m not even sure what kind of flower it is but I love the way  it is in focus and all of the background isn’t. The greeting is from the Just Believe Stamp set and is stamped in Rose Red and cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies. The butterflies are form the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and are cut from Rose Red Card Stock. All of the items are mounted to the picture on Stampin’ Dimensionals. I put the picture in a shadow box frame. I think this would make a great gift for anyone. I highly recommend that if you are ever in Manhattan that you go and take a walk on the High Line. Its a beautiful and different way to spend the afternoon. Thanks for checking in with me and enjoy your day!

Paper Players #98

Hello everyone and a good Monday morning to you. I hope that you all had a great weekend, I know I did. I had two meetings with friends about making invitations and my brother and his fiancée stopped by and picked their wedding invitations. I had a nice crafty Sunday! Today’s card is for this weeks Paper Players Challenge. This weeks host is Jaydee and she has given us a theme challenge…

Summertime! As soon as I saw it I thought what says summertime better than a pinwheel! The base of the card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock. I ran a piece of Real Red Card Stock through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The pinwheel is made from a 3 1/4″ square piece of Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper. I used a Brights Collection 3/16″ Brad to secure all of the wings to the center. A piece of wooden dowel makes the handle and I tied a piece of Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon to the middle. The greeting is from the Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I used the new Bitty Banners Framelits Dies to cut it out. I adhered everything to the card with some Mini Glue Dots. It’s a relatively simple card to make and I love all of the bright colors.  I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and thank for stopping by. Have a great Monday! 🙂

Burgundy Artichoke Vermillion Old & New

Good morning and happy Sunday to you all! I had a very nice day in the city yesterday. It was a little rainy in the morning but I got to drive with the top down in the convertible on the way home. 🙂 Today’s card is a simple card that would be a great masculine card and with a sentiment change could be for anything. I used one of my favorite stamps, the Young Vermillion Wood Mount À la Carte**. He is retired but he’s still a good one. He’s stamped in Bravo Burgundy and mounted on a piece of Bravo Burgundy Card Stock. The leaves image is from the Lovely As A Tree Wood Mount Stamp Set and is stamped in Always Artichoke and mounted on a piece of Always Artichoke Card Stock. I used one of the new Naturals Designer Buttons and tied it with some retired Natural Hemp Twine**. I saw the idea for the way to tie the button on Pinterest. It’s backed by some more Always Artichoke Card Stock and adhered to the card with Sticky Strip for extra staying power. The background is Crumb Cake embossed with the Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and that is mounted to the base which is Bravo Burgundy. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Wood Mount Stamp Set and is stamped in Always Artichoke and punched out with the Word Window Punch and the re-punched to make it shorter. I love the colors and the little bird and will miss him now that he is gone! I hope that you like today’s card and thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

CCMC 204 Up, Up & Away Birthday

Good morning everyone, happy Saturday! What kind of plans do you all have for the Weekend? I’m off to the city today for a bit to see a friend and do some consulting. I love going to Manhattan! Today’s card is for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a color challenge…

I am a big fan of the 2011-2013 In-Colors and Early Espresso was one of the first colors I got when I joined Stampin’ Up! I was also a little inspired by the new layout of the Create with Connie and Mary blog. I made a 3D window card using some 12″ x 12″ Wisteria Wonder Card Stock cut to 5 1/2″ x 12″. It is scored at 1/2″, 3 1/2″, 4″, 7″, 8″ and 11″. The windows are cut out of the two larger sides so when you fold it the middle is the back of the card. The best thing about this card is that it folds flat and fits in a standard medium envelope. The clouds in the background were made using the Cupcake Builder Punch. The frosting makes great clouds! I stamped the birds from the Up, Up & Away Stamp Set in Early Espresso. The balloons are stamped in Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade and the baskets are stamped in Early Espresso. On two of the baskets I used tiny pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals to give them a little more depth. The greeting is stamped in Early Espresso too and the flags are stamped in Wisteria Wonder. I thought the card need a little bling so I used 4 of the Basic Jewels Rhinestones on the four corners of the greeting.I love these 3D cards and hope that you enjoyed it too. Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to pay me a visit! Have an awesome Saturday!!
