Pretty Petals and a great layout

Watercolor wings

I love having a super sketch to start out my card designs!  And the folks at Mojo Monday have a great new sketch every week.  Here was the sketch for last week:

Mojo407sketch

  • See how quick and easy your cards come together with a wonderfully balanced layout?  I’ll tell you a bit about my card in case you want to duplicate it.
  • Another fabulous tool to quick and easy cards are the designer papers from Stampin’ Up!  This card features Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack, which comes in a 6″x6″ packet – 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  The possibilities are endless!  I chose the butterflies and then simply built my color scheme around that paper.  And the little butterfly is punched out of another pattern using the Bitty Butterfly Punch.  Here are some of the other terrific patterns:

 

Pretty Petals DSP

  • And here’s a link to view another card I made using Pretty Petals – click HERE to view.
  • The 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon has been a terrific addition to our new Annual Catalog.  Here I’ve used Pacific Point to coordinate.
  • The heartfelt sentiment comes from Watercolor Wings stamp set.  It’s my most favorite new stamp!  Who wouldn’t like to receive a card acknowledging how precious life’s moments are with them!
  • All three circles come from Stampin’ Up! Punches – 1″, 1-3/4″ and 2″.  The Pacific Point and Old Olive cardstock circles are run through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder for some added texture.
  • My accessories continue with a small Pearl and Rhinestone, as well as some Gold Thread behind the sentiment.

Welcome baby with Zoo Babies

Zoo Babies

Zoo Babies stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is still my favorite “go to” set for babies!  The images are sweet, and when paired with the new Sweet Li’l Things Designer Paper and color scheme, it takes on a fresh, new life!

  • There are two new ribbons and trims in this card.  The Tangelo Twist 5/8″ Striped Cotton Ribbon is cinched with some Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine.  These pretty cotton ribbons come in all of the 2014-16 In Colors.  Get your New Catalog Share of these beautiful ribbons plus more right HERE!
  • The sweet star paper is a piece from Sweet Li’l Things Designer Paper and is in Hello Honey.
  • The elephant is stamped in the new In Color Tip Top Taupe, both on the 2″ Very Vanilla circle and on the Envelope to coordinate.  A Pool Party Candy Dot from the Subtles packet acts as the elephant’s eye on the card, and I colored in the eye with a Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker for the envelope.
  • The Tangelo Twist cardstock circle is cut with the Circles Framelits and Big Shot, then run through with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder.  Both circles are held together with a little mini Clothespin I found amongst one of my kits.  Then that whole main image is popped up off the card with Dimensionals.

Zoo Babies2

  • Just for a little added dimension, I stamped the elephant twice then cut out his ear with Paper Snips and added it with a Dimensional.

World of Dreams and Pretty Petals

World of Dreams1

I love the combination of World of Dreams stamp set and Pretty Petals designer paper from Stampin’ Up! – the images look so nice with the paper prints! This is a very special card I designed to give to a friend who is moving away.  There’s a going away party for her this week, and I wanted to be sure to be ready with something particularly nice.  Because of that, I pulled out all the stops, decorating the envelope front and back as well as the inside of the card.

  • The color scheme in the Pretty Petals paper is Mint Macaron, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Basic Black and Very Vanilla.  It’s easy to find what your layering colors should be from the designer paper colors!
  • I stamped tone-on-tone with Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom layer.
  • The birds and nest image was stamped in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool.  Don’t forget to swipe your cardstock with the Embossing Buddy so that little bits of black won’t adhere where they don’t belong.  Another tip to embossing:  keep a clean, unused small paint brush handy to flick off specks before you heat emboss.
  • The little flower is punched out with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and the center is a small White Perfect Accent colored with a black Sharpie.
  • With this gorgeous paper, I lined the Very Vanilla Envelope with coordinating Pretty Petals designer paper using the Envelope Liner Framelit and the Big Shot.  I cut my paper at 3″ x 6″ and used SNAIL Adhesive only on the top and the two “winged” sides, not on the bottom, so that it can slide easily into the envelope.

World of Dreams2

  • And here’s the front of the envelope.  I carried the greenery theme into the corner to dress up even the front.

World of Dreams4

  • Since the card base was in Basic Black Cardstock, I lined the inside of my card with Very Vanilla Cardstock and stamped the greenery motif again.  The sentiment is so perfect for my friend who is heading out with her family to start a new job in another state.  They’re really excited about going and the possibilities it holds for the family.  I’m going to miss her though!

Watercolor Wings and Bold Butterfly Framelits

Watercolor butterfly

I’m sure by now you’ve seen lots and lots of samples using the coordinating products Watercolor Wings stamp set and the Bold Butterfly Framelits by Stampin’ Up!  But really, the possibilities are endless!  And you save by purchasing both in a bundle!

  • I’m totally hooked on the new 2015-17 In Colors.  I just can’t get enough of them!  And in my opinion using Basic Black with them just makes them pop.  I tried using the Tip Top Taupe as the card base and butterfly, and it just wasn’t as pretty.  Check out another card using 2015-17 In Colors and Basic Black HERE.
  • I began by running a strip of Delightful Dijon cardstock through the Big Shot with the brand new Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.  Another great one to use would be Fluttering with the embossed butterflies.
  • Rounding the corners on the Mint Macaron cardstock softens the look and coordinates better with the Watermelon Wonder cardstock circle which was cut with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.  The leaf that’s stamped tone on tone comes from World of Dreams stamp set.
  • Now for the fun part – creating our butterfly!  I ran Basic Black cardstock through the Big Shot with the Bold Butterfly Framelit.  Then I used the framelit to trace a butterfly on the Watermelon Wonder Designer Paper.  I cut it out by hand with my Paper Snips and glued on the Basic Black piece over the top with a 2-Way Glue Pen.  After gluing, you can go back and trim more paper off if necessary.  I stamped the antennae on the circle then adhered the butterfly to the circle with one Dimensional in the center.

Bold Butterflies Framelits

  • This beautiful sentiment is contained in the Watercolor Wings stamp set.  I love what it says and I love the font!  I stamped in Black Memento Ink – my black ink of choice for most projects.
  • Now for some accessorizing!  The sweet resin flower is from the new In Color Blossom Accents – 4 each of all 5 colors in a package!
  • The four black shiny circle accents are White Perfect Accents colored with a Sharpie.  You can color them any color you choose, and they’re self adhesive.

Happy Birthday with Cottage Greetings and a Cherry on Top

Happy birthday 2

Sprinkles of Life is the Ronald McDonald charity stamp set this year – Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 to this worthy organization for each of these stamp sets purchased.  Buy this great set AND support this cause – a great combination!

I love the coordination of the Sprinkles of Life stamp set with the Cherry on Top designer paper.  In fact, I had a hard time deciding which papers to use with my card – they all looked great!  So here are a few other samples with different papers for the center strip.

Happy birthday 3

Happy birthday1

  • Another star of the show is the Cottage Greetings stamp set.  This great set was designed to go with the Cottage Greetings Card Kit (which I’ll show you another day), but of course, you can always use the stamp set with other cards.  I just love the whimsical font!
  • You’ll want to grab the Tree Builder Punch that also coordinates with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.  This will enable you to punch out many of the images in the stamp set.  I’ve popped up the cupcake top with Dimensionals after punching it out, as well as the cherry on top of the cupcake.
  • Stampin’ Up! is now carrying a banner punch so that you’ll never have to figure out how to cut your banner ends evenly again.  It’s called the Banner Triple Punch and is designed to punch three different width of strips, but really any size strip will work.  It’s a must for quick, neat banners.
  • Another greatly used punch in my stash is the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.  It was designed to be just the right “swoop” for your Project Life cards and photos, but it works perfectly for your cards, too.  Just rounding one corner and placing the background Whisper White Cardstock over to the far left rather than centered gives this card a fresh look.

Happy birthday closeup

  • Place your cupcake on a Crushed Curry Cardstock circle using the Circle Framelits and Big Shot.
  • Don’t forget to add a little sparkle to your cupcake.  I used a 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the cupcake top.  And for the shiny 3D finish on the cherry, just add a little dab of Crystal Effects.  Be sure to let it dry – it takes a little time.

 

REMINDER:  My Stampin’ Garage Sale is still going strong!  Get 40-75% off my personal retired Stampin’ Up! products – check out all the information HERE.

 

Don’t Forget!

And as always, make a purchase through my Online Store HERE and you’ll receive free card kits from me as a thank you.  June’s Card Shoppe cards were posted a bit late this month, so I’ll be offering this same great line-up through July 15th.  On July 16th, we’ll switch over to the July Card Shoppe card choices.  (There are also July Stamp With Me card choices HERE.)
