Sure Do Love You

I am so excited to start sharing the cards I’ve been making with new products from the Occasions catalog!  This is definitely one of my favorites.  It features an amazing sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! and some beautiful new Designer Series Paper called Painted with Love.  The paper is stunning with its brushstroke designs and splashes of gold foil.  You’ll definitely want to add it to your next order.

For the focal point, I stamped the “Sure Do Love You” sentiment in Melon Mambo ink onto Whisper White card stock before cutting the words apart.  A small heart was stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink, then die cut.  The Sure Do Love You stamp set coordinates with the Lots to Love Box Framelits, used for die-cutting both heart shapes.  The “Love” was die-cut from gold foil with the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.  To tie everything together, I added some Powder Pink Mini Tinsel Trim to the back of the large heart.  The tinsel trim is available in a 2-pack that also includes a pretty gold trim.  I love the bit of sparkle it adds to the project.

Daisy Delight Thank You FMS301

Today I’m sharing one of the Daisy Delight cards that we made in Card Club this month.  This one is super easy!  It features unusual angles and a trendy color scheme.  I used the sketch below from Freshly Made Sketches for the layout.

For my Card Club, I design 5 projects and try to focus on one stamp set, coordinating designer series paper, and a limited number of ink colors.  I want my customers to see all the variation they can create with just a few supplies.  This month, we used the Daisy Delight stamp set, Daisy Punch, and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

 

The Daisy image was stamped twice with Tranquil Tide ink onto Whisper White card stock, then punched out.  To create the angled edge, I simply placed a ruler and drew the lines before cutting.  The “Thank You” sentiment was stamped along the angled edge in Tranquil Tide ink.  A few of my club members chose to leave the sentiment off so that they could use it for a different occasion.

 

Daisy Delight Thank You FMS301

As a finishing touch, I scattered a few Clear Faceted Gems onto the front of the card.

The Card Club tutorial will be available in the blog sidebar tomorrow.  It includes all the measurements, so you don’t have to figure it out for yourself.  My customers really enjoyed this class and the simple beauty of these cards.  I hope you do, too!

Who’s Having a Birthday?

Birthday Memories Suite

 If you haven’t fallen in love with the Birthday Memories Suite yet, I think that today’s card may push you over the edge.  How cute are these poodles?  There are two 12″ x 12″ sheets of the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper covered in poodles, plus one of the die cuts will cut out the main poodle image perfectly.

Birthday Memories Suite

The greeting is from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and it was stamped in Real Red ink onto Whisper White card stock.  I used the Big Shot and the Layering Circles Dies to cut out the Whisper White circle and the Real Red Scallop Circle.  To accessorize the card, I tied on some Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and added a few Real Red Enamel shapes.

Hip Hip Hooray! It’s Your Birthday!

Birthday Memories Suite

If you are looking for some bright, colorful images to adorn your handmade birthday cards, look no further than the Birthday Memories Suite of products.  There is an amazing bundle that features the Birthday Delivery Photopolymer stamp set, Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, and Birthday Friends Framelits.  What I love most about this bundle is the coordination of the Framelits with the Designer Series Paper.  For today’s card, I was able to die cut the fox image and banner from the paper…..very little stamping required!

Birthday Memories Suite

There are a couple of stamps that will fit inside the banner.  I chose to stamp the sentiment in the coordinating Pacific Point ink.  The background was embossed with the Big Shot and the new Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder.  I also added a few Brights Enamel Shapes to make this card even more festive.

Birthday Memories Suite

For cards that feature a darker card stock base, I always place a piece of Whisper White card stock on the inside for stamping and/or writing a personalized greeting.  On this card, I also added a strip of the Designer Series Paper to match it to the front.

Birthday Memories Suite

I’m trying very hard not to hoard my Designer Series Paper this year.  I was able to die cut quite a few of the fox images from my paper and create these cards for my most recent downline meeting.  My group of demonstrators meets every other month to share ideas and talk shop.  We also have a group Facebook page where we can share our card creations.

Oh So Eclectic #SSINKCS46 Sketch Challenge

Oh So Eclectic
By now you’ve had the chance to drool over the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and I’m sure you were blown away by the colorful designs on the front cover.  Today’s card features several products from the catalog cover, including the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and the coordinating Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  I used this week’s sketch from Stylin’ Stampin’ INKSpiration for my layout.  Be sure to visit the SSINK blog and play along with us this week.
Oh So Eclectic
At first glance, this card probably looks fairly simple.  However, it took some work to line everything up properly.  I had to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig and a little masking technique to create the layered flowers.  It is rare for me to dust off the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I’m very much an “eyeball it” kind-of girl, but I could not line these flowers up correctly without it.  Perhaps, you’ll have better luck!  If you are interested in seeing a video on how I stamped these images, just leave me a comment on this post.  I’m hoping to get some video time in this week.
Oh So Eclectic
You’ll notice that there is a bit of texture to these images.  It really adds a watercolor look to the card.  I did stamp off the ink one time for each of the “solid” flower stamps to create a lighter color, before stamping the line-art stamp over it at full-strength.

If you’d like to add the Oh So Eclectic stamp set to your collection, you’ll find a complete list of supplies at the end of this post.
