Meant To Be is this week’s featured stamp set at What Will You Stamp?
This stamp set is perfect for weddings, anniversaries, valentines, or just to say “I love you.” Plus, it is bundled with the fabulous, Be Mine Stitched die set, where you can save 10%! Here’s a picture of the stamp set, and you can check out the dies in my Product List below.
This project began with a sheet of beautiful, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. All of these flowers were begging for a heart with a sentiment expressing love. I hadn’t made an “eclipse” card for a while, so I used a be Mine Stitched die to cut a heart from the floral DSP. While I was cutting, I used another die from the set to cut the numerous hearts across the bottom.
After cutting, I glued this holey DSP on a Sahara Sand card base. I thought about using Whisper White, but went with Sahara Sand to bring out the darker tones in the floral print. Next, I glued the cut-out piece with numerous hearts back in place. Then, I layered the large heart for thickness, added dimensionals, and placed it back in its spot.
The sentiment is from the Meant To Be stamp set, which I stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Petal Promenade DSP. This is the reverse side of the floral paper, and looks like marble. So pretty! I used a smaller heart from the Be Mine Stitched die set for cutting, and it was layered for thickness.
For a final touch, I added three Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope you were inspired. Won’t you share some “Meant To Be” love with us by posting your creations in our WWYS gallery? Clicking on the WWYS pic of the stamp set at the top of my post will take you there.
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!
Beautiful Promenade is a great stamp set, and was chosen for this week’s What Will You Stamp? challenge.
Today, I’m sharing with you a “quick & easy” card using this stamp set. How do you like my yellow hibiscus?
PS. You are Loved
There’s a stamp for the outline of the flower, which I stamped in Pineapple Punch ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. A second stamp was used for the detailed lines, with Daffodil Delight ink. I stamped the leaves with Granny Apple Green ink, and then used two of the Beautiful Layers dies for cutting the flower and the leaves.
Yellow and purple make a pretty combination, so Highland Heather cardstock is the card base, topped with a piece of Highland Heather Gingham Gala 6X6 DSP. I added texture to it with the Dot To Dot embossing folder. This was an experiment, and I was really pleased how the horizontal lines matched up.
The rectangle behind my hibiscus is Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut with a Rectangle Stitched die. A Beautiful Promenade stamp was used to create the detailed edge with Gorgeous Grape ink.
“PS,” and “You are loved,” are also from the stamp set, and stamped in Highland Heather ink. I really like this sentiment!
Sometimes, you just need a “quick & easy” way to tell someone they are loved. I think this would do the trick!
I’d love to see how you were inspired, so won’t you please post your creation in the What Will You Stamp gallery? Thank you!
The Spirited Snowmen stamp set has been a Christmas card favorite, and will continue to be used throughout the winter months.
My husband and I were married in Pittsburgh on February 1st, nearly 33 years ago. There was snow on the ground, and even though we live in San Diego, I think this will be a perfect Anniversary card for him. Isn’t this couple adorable?
Spirited Snowmen in Love
Stamping and coloring the couple is the first thing I did. I stamped the couple in Smoky Slate ink on Watercolor Paper, and used an Aqua Painter with Smoky Slate to fill in their bodies. I continued watercoloring, using six other ink pads: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz, Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede.
Once colored, I used a Rectangle Stitched die for cutting around my snow couple. The sentiment, “love never melts,” is so cute, and a must for this Anniversary card. I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on Watercolor Paper, and used a Rectangle Stitched die for cutting.
The layer of hearts is from a Be Mine Stitched die, and fits in perfectly with the current Global Design Project, sketch challenge.
The background was made with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder on a piece of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. I chose a Smoky Slate card base, so it would all blend together.
I’m so glad this is the stamp set that was chosen for this week’s What Will You Stamp? challenge. As a member of the design team, I am asking you to join us, and I’m looking forward to seeing your contributions in our gallery. Clicking on this picture will take you there.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, the last day in 2018. Happy New Year!
The Merry Christmas To All stamp set has been used for many Christmas cards, but I also wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Wishes
I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, layered with Galvanized Metallic Paper for some silvery shine.
Balloons are a must for celebrating on New Year’s Eve, and I found the perfect one in the Blow Out The Candles stamp set. I stamped the balloon, randomly, on the top third of Thick Whisper White cardstock in four colors: Lemon Lime twist, Call me Clover, Pacific Point, and Gorgeous Grape. Then, I added confetti with a die from the Candles and Confetti die set, because you HAVE to have confetti.
TIP: I “stamped-off” the balloons to give them a see-through appearance. This means, I inked the balloon, stamped on a piece of scrap paper, and then stamped the balloon on the card front.
“Wishing” and “You A” are from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set, stamped in Pacific Point and Call Me Clover ink. I used a Rectangle Stitched die for cutting; a new die set from the Occasions catalog that will be available January 3rd, 2019.
“Happy” is from the Merry Christmas die set, cut from Galvanized Metallic Paper, which matches the border.
“NEW YEAR” is from the Labeler Alphabet set, stamped in Gorgeous Grape, fussy cut, and placed on tiny pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals. The letters are slightly askew for character. Besides, it was easier than arranging in a straight line. 😉
This project began with the challenge of using the Merry Christmas To All stamp set. Since I’m a member of the What Will You Stamp Design Team, I wanted to use this stamp set, and show you it can go beyond Christmas. If you own this stamp set, I’d be thrilled if you played along with us, and added your project in our gallery. Clicking on this picture of the stamp set will take you there. I hope to see your contributions!
“New Year’s” is the theme at Festive Friday, so I will share my card there.

What Will You Stamp? is featuring the Making Christmas Bright stamp set this week. It happens to have a twin stamp set, Making Every Day Bright, that expands the use of the fabulous Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.
I first stamped three bulbs in Real Red ink, and two in Garden Green ink on Whisper White cardstock, and then had the fun of punching them out. To make them extra “bright,” I stamped them in Versamark, sprinkled them with Clear Embossing Powder, and shot them with my Heat Tool. Can you see how they sparkle?
The bulbs needed a pretty place to hang, so I found this great branch in the Night Owl die set. I used Wood Textures DSP, and layered the branch with cardstock to give it thickness. Then, I arranged the bulbs, and glued them to the back of the branch.
For the background, I chose a piece of Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, and ran it through the Big Shot with the Corrugated embossing folder.
The sentiment, “Sending warm wishes your way,” is from the Still Night stamp set, and cut with a Night Owl die.
Challenges are great for inspiration, so I’m sharing one of my last Christmas cards of the season with Paper Players and Festive Friday.
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Bulbs card. Thank you for stopping by. Now, it’s your turn to add your Making Christmas Bright project to our gallery. Clicking on this picture of the stamp set will take you there. Have fun!
