PENNY BLACK - Harmony




I am going through some stamps and deciding which ones I can let go.  This was one of them; but before listing it on eBay I decided to stamp a couple of the images.

The first one was done using the SU Petal Pink blenders and card stock.

For the second one I used SU Soft Saffron.

Both are stamped with the "Wishing You" from a Verve Stamps set.  When I want to use them, I will choose one of the variety sentiments from the set for the inside.

After completing the cards, I listed it on eBay and shortly after a lady from the UK inquired if I would be wiling to sell it to her and send it to her daughter in California.  Another stamp that moved very quickly!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOYCE!



Over a month ago I saw a card that was called a "quilt".  It looked fun  to make so I tried to choose some designer papers that could look like patterns on a quilt.  After attaching the quilt pieces to a piece of white card stock, I ran the piece through the Cuttlebug using an embossing folder to give it the quilted look.  That piece was then added to the Night of Navy  card base.

Today is my friend's birthday and since she has been making a lot of quilts,  I  put this card aside and saved it for her.

STAMPIN' UP! - Happy Birthday to You (2 cards)


This stamp set is such a pretty design.  It could make a great card to use for a wedding or bridal shower as well as birthdays.  I stamped the design using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the card front (a heavy card stock) but even with this light color it showed through on the inside.  I trimmed it down so that the Balmy Blue Frame could be placed on top. 

I colored with SU BLenders Light & Dark Balmy Blue, Light Olive and a Gray Copic marker for the cake stand.  Then I used a portion of the stamp to do the individual flower which I fussy cut and added to the card with a foam square.


This card was done using SU Blenders Light & Dark So Saffron, Light Olive, a touch of Calypso Coral and Soft Suede for the cake stand.  I also used a set of stitched rectangles for both the So Saffron mat and the White stamped piece. When I fussy cut a second flower from the stamped image, this time I added it to the top flower on the cake.  I really like this set!

Last Saturday I participated in a second Summertime Creative Retreat which was put on by five very talented and fun Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  I hope to have some new cards from that retreat to post here very soon.

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #6


The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them.

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #5


I modeled this card after one I saw on Pinterest.  I had really debated about buying this 12 x 12 pack of Mosaic Mood designer papers until I started seeing cards made with the designs.  I love that the sheet I used for these three have parts that look enameled.

Thank you for coming by today!

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #4


The first two vases were punched from pieces in a 12 x 12 designer paper pad. I had seen a card with vases and one of the vases had been stamped using a retired large stamp which I didn't have. So for the third vase I looked through my Stampin' Up! designer papers and found one with a flower that gave a similar look with the swirled look once I punched it out.  

Thank you for coming by today!
