The Hand-Lettered Prose Dies were perfect to use for today’s color challenge.
The color challenge is from Fab Friday:
First, I used a stamp from the Waterfront Stamp set to stamp rows of the colors on Whisper White Cardstock.
Then, I used the the letters, “h-a-p-y,” to cut “happy” from my striped paper, and layered the letters for thickness. Can you see the stamp I used from Waterfront?
“Birthday” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, stamped in Pacific Point Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die.
For the background, I thought the bright letters would look great against white, and decided to emboss the Whisper White Cardstock with the Brick & Mortar Embossing folder.
I appreciate you visiting my blog, and it gives me pleasure to share my ideas with you. Enjoy shopping at my store, and have a happy day!
Today’s project is a trio of daisies and ferns from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set.
Daisies & Ferns
I chose Garden Green Ink for stamping the fern on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the daisy, on regular Whisper White cardstock, in three colors: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Crushed Curry.
While stamping the fern and daisies, I had the Fab Friday sketch on my mind.
After fussy cutting the daisies, I shaped them with my fingers, and placed them on Dimensionals atop the vertical section of ferns. The right-hand, scalloped strip was made with a Be Mine Stitched Die and Garden Green Cardstock. The stripe on the left is a piece of Regals 6X6 Designer Series Paper in Garden Green.
The sentiment, “It’s your time to shine,” is also from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. I used the same Be Mine Stitched Die to make the scalloped edges. Everything was glued on a Thick Whisper White card base, and my card was complete.
Thank you for visiting today! You’ll notice from my picture of the 6X6 DSP in my Product List that the stripe isn’t there. The stripe is from the previous catalog, but you can use a different pattern, and make this card your own. Have a wonderful day!
Today’s Tropical friendship card was designed with two challenges in mind.
Fab Friday for the sketch.
Global Design Project for the colors.
I chose the Tropical Chic stamp set, because I could imagine it in these pretty, bright colors. I began by stamping the flower in Pineapple Punch ink on Whisper White cardstock. The Tropical die set has a die for cutting the three flowers. The set also has a die for the ferns, which I cut from Coastal Cabana cardstock. I used a Rectangle Stitched die to cut a Thick Whisper White background for the flowers and ferns, which I raised on Foam Adhesive Strips. The ferns are glued flat, and the flowers are on dimensionals.
TIP: The middle flower is on two dimensionals (stacked) for greater height.
The background on the cardbase is a layer of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed with the Basket Weave embossing folder, and glued showing the debossed side.
I brought Gorgeous Grape to the scene with some striped 6X6 Designer Series Paper, which I cut with a Rectangle Stitched die. The same 6X6 pack was used for the larger, dotted banner in Coastal Cabana. I cut a piece, 4″ X 1″, and used the Banner Triple Punch for cutting.
TIP:The Banner Triple Punch is great, because it gives you perfectly cut banners in three widths: 1″, 1 1/2″ and 2″.
The sentiment, also in Gorgeous Grape, is from the new, Good Morning Magnolia, stamp set. It was sitting on my work table, because I just received it, and “Enjoy Today” was the right size and sentiment for this project. Don’t you agree?
The five, tiny pearls were the finishing touch.
This Tropical Chic Bundle is carrying over into the new catalog, which makes me very happy. I have it listed separately in my Product List, but, if you love it, buy it now for a 10% discount. After June 3rd, the stamp set and dies will only be sold separately. The bundle number is 148399.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Enjoy today!
The Colorful Seasons stamp set has wonderful sentiments with lovely font. It also has beautiful blossoms, both of which I’ve used on today’s project.
Here’s a close look at the Colorful Seasons stamp set, although the stamps are larger than pictured.
Since I’m in Valentine card making mode, I stamped the blossoms on hearts from the Be Mine Stitched die set. The three, blossom stamps, are slightly different, and I stamped them in three shades of pink: Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Petal Pink.
The hearts are on a 2″ strip of Thick Whisper White that I gave a scalloped edge with a Be Mine Stitched die. I also ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtle Textured embossing folder.
The sentiment, “Thinking of you,” is from Colorful Seasons, stamped in Black ink and cut with the smallest Rectangle Stitched die.
The card base is Thick Whisper White, topped with a panel of Petal Pink cardstock that I embossed with the Lace Texture embossing folder.
My inspiration for the layout was from Fab Friday.
I enjoyed pairing new Occasions products with Colorful Seasons for this Valentine. Scroll down to see my Product List and go to my online store for purchasing.
Please post your projects using the fabulous, Colorful Seasons stamp set in our WWYS Gallery. I can’t wait to see what you create!
The Happy Tails stamp set from the new Occasions 2019 catalog makes me a very happy stamper! My followers know how much I love the Cat Punch, so now I have a dog to play with.
Happy Tails Dog Punch
I couldn’t wait to stamp this puppy in Soft Suede ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. He comes with two stamps for spots; large and small, and I used the Stamparatus for perfect placement. Don’t you think we should call him Spot? It’s such an original name, LOL. Spot loved being punched out with his very own punch, and couldn’t wait to see what was next.
Spot needed a collar to settle him down, so I stamped one in Cherry Cobbler ink, and sat him in a circle of Pool Party cardstock. It was once solid, but Spot chewed a hole in it, so I evened it out with a Stitched Shapes circle die. He promised to be good, if I raised the circle on dimensionals, so I did.
Stitched Shapes are very popular, and Stampin Up! blessed us with a whole set of Rectangle Stitched dies in the new Occasions 2019 catalog! I used one for a Mossy Meadow layer, and one for a Pool Party layer, which are layered on a Shaded Spruce card base. This die set will make layering so much fun!
If you couldn’t guess, Spot is saying “Happy Birthday” (Ruff! Ruff!). I decided to repeat it in human language on the inside, using the Well Written die set, also in the Occasions 2019 catalog. I used Shaded Spruce for the words on Pool Party cardstock, cut with a Rectangle Stitched die.
I thought about adding something to the front, but wanted to keep it clean and simple for this week’s Global design project. Plus, clean & simple is good for masculine cards, and this one qualifies.
And, you can see that I found my colors at Fab Friday.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of Occasions 2019. Clicking on the pictures in my Product List below will give you the details on the items I used today. The first four are from the Occasions 2019 catalog, which demonstrators are able to purchase now, and customers Jan 3rd.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The Dashing Deer stamp set and Detailed Deer dies leapt out of the Holiday Catalog as my number one favorite. I wasn’t expecting my first design to be a Thank You card without deer, but here it is.
Many Merry Thanks
I first cut the pretty, filigree corner dies from Thick Whisper White cardstock. The four, patterned corners fit perfectly on a 3″ square of cardstock, and I glued them in place.
“Many Merry Thanks” is a great sentiment, and I could see it stamped in black on Whisper White with small bright flowers suggested by the Fab Friday Challenge.
The Stamparatus was used to insure the sentiment, “Many Merry Thanks,” was in the middle. I die cut the small flowers from cardstock in the four colors: Call Me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade. I glued them right on top of the white flower in the filigree pattern.
I added texture to the top layer by using the Simple Stripes embossing folder, and dimension by using Foam Adhesive Strips beneath my 3″ square focal piece.
Many Merry Thanks
I have a feeling the deer were pretty upset they weren’t featured on my first card from the Dashing Deer stamp set, but their time will come.
I hope you can see the versatility in this fabulous, Dashing Deer Bundle, even beyond the holidays. Keep scrolling to see the products I used. I appreciate you shopping at my store. Have a wonderful day!
