Wisteria Pool Party Vogue Thank You

Posted on

Good morning and happy Saturday to everyone! I’m off to the city again today to drop off some more Stampin’ Up! orders. What kind of fun things are you guys up to this weekend? For today’s card I was asked to make a Thank You card for a friend of mine that lives in Missouri, Dawn. The card uses the Note Card and Envelope Set in Whisper White. I used a plain piece of Wisteria Wonder for the Background. The images are from the set Vintage Vogue and are stamped in Wisteria Wonder. The large flower is cut out and mounted over the smaller stamped flowers with a Stampin’ Dimensional. A piece of Silver Glimmer Paper is punched out with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. and adhered to the middle of the flower. The greeting is from Curly Verses and is also stamped in Wisteria Wonder. They are all backed with Pool Party and adhered to card with SNAIL. For a great finishing touch I used a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon across the middle. I also stamped one of the small flowers on the front corner of the envelope. Thank for stopping by and have a good Saturday!

Vintage Vogue Concord Bride

Posted on

Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is just a few hours away! My good friend Angie from Blue Springs Missouri had her fist Workshop tonight and I attended it via FaceTime! You gotta love Apple and modern technology! 🙂 For today’s card I wanted to make a very feminine pretty birthday card. I used some Concord Crush for the base of the card. I took a piece of Very Vanilla and used the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set to make a background randomly stamped in Blushing Bride. I stamped some more images from the set in Concord Crush and cut out the flower image with my Paper Snips and used the Ticket Corner Punch on the F image. I stamped the Happiest Birthday from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set (Occasions Mini) in Concord Crush and used the Ticket Corner Punch on that too. They are both mounted on Concord Crush Card Stock and all of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the perfect finishing touch I used a Twitterpated Designer Button in Blushing Bride on the cut out flower image. I hope you like today’s card and thank you so much for taking some time to stop by and visit, I appreciate it! Have a great day! 🙂

Simple Sympathy

Posted on

Hello there people and welcome to Thursday. Only one more day until the weekend! Today’s card is a card that no one likes to have to make, the sympathy card. It’s always a sad time but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful and simple. I started with a card base of Baja Breeze and to that I added a piece of So Saffron that I ran through the Big Shot using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate. The image is from the Love & Sympathy Stamp Set and is stamped in Baja Breeze on Whisper White Card Stock. I choose the greeting from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set and that too is stamped in Baja Breeze and both are mounted on Baja Breeze Card Stock. A piece of  So Saffron 3/16″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon from the  Elementary Ribbon Originals on the Clearance Rack finishes off the card. I hope that you like today’s simple sympathy card and thank you so much for stopping by!

A-maze-ing Baja Birthday

Posted on

Happy Wednesday morning to all of you! Its mid-week which means we are halfway there! For today’s card I finally used some items that I purchased from the Occasions Mini Catalog a while ago. The base of the card is Chocolate Chip. I took a piece of Baja Breeze Card Stock and stamped it with the Woodgrain Background Wood Mount Stamp in Chocolate Chip. The cool little Maze Game is backed with a stamp from the Totally Amazing Stamp Set also stamped in Chocolate Chip and is punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. For a little more detail there is a piece of cheese in the middle that was stamped in More Mustard. I used some Glue Dots and Tombo to adhere it to the card. I stamped the mouse image in Chocolate Chip and punched it out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch and backed it with a piece of Chocolate Chip punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. The top greeting is from Happiest Birthday Wishes (Host(ess)) and the lower greeting is also from the Totally Amazing Stamp Set. I think the idea of a maze game on the front of a card is fun. When you send this out  I would use one of the padded envelopes just to make sure that it arrives in one piece! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! 🙂

Mojo 234

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope your Monday was a good one, mine was ok. For today’s card I give you this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge…

I decided that I would use some of the Sale-A-Bration items before they are gone. The base of my card is Lucky Limeade. I added three strips of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration) for my background. The stamps are from the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set (Sale-A-Bration) and are stamped in Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait for the center images and the stamp image is stamped in Lucky Limeade. I backed the center image with Pool Party and the stamp image is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch and backed by a piece of Peach Parfait that punched out with the 1 3/8″ Square Punch. I adhered the center image with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the set Fabulous Phrases and is stamped in Lucky Limeade and mounted on some Poppy Parade. For the finishing touch I placed 3 Basic Jewels Rhinestones on the three outside stamped flower images. I love the Mojo Challenge and hope you like the card. Thanks for taking a look and have a great day!

Paper Players #88

Posted on

A good Monday morning to you. I hope that you all had a nice weekend. As I mentioned yesterday, I went to see Rent and it was great! Thanks to My friend Kim, my daughter and I had a great afternoon! For this weeks Paper Players Challenge Ann has provided this sketch…

I always like to work with a sketch because it makes most of the work, the card layout, so much easier because it’s done for you. As soon as I saw this I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I used one of my favorite sets, French Foliage. The base of the card is Early Espresso and I used a piece of Well Worn Designer Series Paper for the background. I placed three 3/16″ Metallic Brads in the lower left corner, two in the brownish color and one in the aged silver color just to be a little different. I then stamped a piece of Very Vanilla with the En Français Background Wood Mount Stamp in Early Espresso Ink. I punched a piece of Cajun Craze with the Scallop Edge Border Punch and placed it underneath. The piece of ribbon across the front is Early Espresso 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon. After all of that was assembled I adhered it to the card with some Sticky Strip (I like to make sure that it’s not going anywhere!). The stamped images are from the French Foliage Stamp Set and are stamped in Cajun Craze and River Rock and I backed it with some Early Espresso. The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Early Espresso and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and half of it is hidden behind the stamped images. I love the card and think I want some more Well Worn DSP! Thank you, as always, for stopping by! Have a great day!

In-Color Flower Burst Thanks

Posted on

Happy Sunday peeps! I’m off to the city today to go and see Rent with my daughter and my wonderful friend Kim. It is supposed to rain all day but I still love a day in the city. For today’s card I used, in my opinion, a somewhat underused product… the Flower Burst Embosslit. The base of the card is Wisteria Wonder. The background is created with the Big Shot and the Texturz Plates 1 Backgrounds using some Pool Party. I stamped the greeting from Outlined Occasions (Sale-A-Bration) in Calypso Coral and used my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the stars. It’s mounted on a piece of Wisteria Wonder and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the Flower Burst Embosslit to cut out some Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral Card Stock and they are also adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. It’s a nice and bright cheery card for an otherwise gloomy day. Thank you, as always, for stopping by! Have a great day!
