Painted Harvest Cut Away Card

Hi Stampers,

I think I am stuck in Painted Harvest mode. I guess with the changing colors occurring earlier this year and just the feeling of Fall in the air it's easy to reach for this stamp set. This time I used the cut away card technique. I managed to use some retired dsp in Elegant Eggplant and the same color in candy dots. The flower is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum. For the center of the flower I used Wisteria Wonder with Elegant Eggplant dots.

Window Flip Card with Painted Harvest

Hi Stampers,

Yes, I reached for my Painted Harvest stamp set AGAIN!!! LOL This time I actually made a sunflower with it and used the Window Flip Card Technique. The sentiments I used are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

I used the new Everyday Label  punch and attached a scrap piece of cardstock to the piece I punched out back  into the punch to make it smaller.

This is the inside of the card:

Window Flip Card Instructions:

There are three main pieces of cardstock on this card:

  • 4-1/4" x 5-3/8" Crushed Curry cardstock
  • 3-1/2" x 5-3/8" Whisper White cardstock
  • 3" x 11" Garden Green cardstock, scored at 5-1/2"

Make sure you use a strong adhesive like Fast Fuse or Sticky Strip to adhere the flap behind the card. I used the green tombow glue on mine.

Punch a 2" circle from the front of the Garden Green cardstock. I ran my through the Big Shot with the petal burst embosssing folder.

Triple Time Stamping with Painted Harvest

Hi Stampers,

I used the triple time stamping technique with the new Painted Harvest stamp set. This time I stamped with colors of pink. For this card I used Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry on Very Vanilla cardstock. I used some retired ribbon in Rich Razzleberry. The sentiment is stamped with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I used the stitched oval framelits to cut out the sentiment.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #242-Autumn Happy Celebrations

#242

Hi Stampers,

This week on our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge we have a product spotlight. We are to use the Stampin' Up! Ink Refills. I reached for my Happy Celebrations and Colorful Seasons stamps sets along with the coordinating embossing folder and framelits. I also used Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Cajun Craze reinkers. I used the Baby Wipe Technique to achieve the results. I also made a Twist Card.

I guess because it is August already I was thinking back to school, fall, shorter days, cooler days..... etcetera.

I love how it turned out!!! I just love Fall and all the rich regal colors!!! It will be here soon enough!

 


Graduation Twist Card

Gradsdads

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to Grads & Dads week. Today, I have a graduation card. I have been meaning to try this technique for so long and just thought I don't have the time. Actually, it is not time consuming at all but VERY ADDICTING!!! My head is spinning with all the ideas for cards using this technique. I am sure there are tons of names for it but I am calling it a Twist Card.

DSCN0081

I used the new gorgeous foil frenzy speciality DSP from the new catalog. This paper is great for 3D projects--nice and thick!!! I also used the sentiment from Happy Celebrations. Open the card and this is what you see-the banner twists and opens to this:

DSCN0082

Before I get a bunch of emails telling me I have lost my mind I think I better explain. LOL This is the first year in a very long time we have no openhouses!!! BUT-I know of at least 2 for next year so I used 2018. I cannot believe I already have a card made a year in advance!!! THAT NEVER HAPPENS!!!LOL

I hope you give this technique a try!! They are so fun to make!!

REMEMBER: You can order everything to make this card in my online store

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #225-Double Ribbon

#225

Hi Stampers,

Back today with a DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. We have a home sweet home challenge. The pic reminds me of Spring that is coming---oh, wait-I live in Michigan and we are under a Winter Weather Advisory!!!! LOL Snow forecast for today and tomorrow and then 60-70 degree weather this weekend!!! Crazy!!!!

I used a cute little trick I learned from my awesome upline Dawn Olchefske. You use a 1/2" circle punch and then thread your ribbon through it.

Inside of the card:

I tried it first with some thinner ribbon but my hole showed through. So I used some retired ribbon which was thicker. It definitely seemed to work better. I hope you will give this a try!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #222-Black Magic

#222

Hi Stampers,

This week for our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge we have a product spotlight using Watercolor Pencils. If you have them, you know how great they color. They are smooth as silk. A few weeks back my upline, Dawn Olchefske, posted some cards on her blog utilizing the Black Magic Technique. This is such a cool technique and has been around for a long time but I have never tried it until now. All you do is stamp in White Craft Ink (let it dry naturally) or use your heat gun as it does take a little bit for it to dry on Basic Black or any other dark cardstock. Then you just color and highlight with the chalk marker (if you want). For those that like the ever popular adult coloring books this would be great for you to make your own!!!

I used the Melon Mambo watercolor pencil. Then I just cut freehand around the flowers.

Baker's Box BBQ Grill

Today, I volunteered to make a project for Technique Tuesday for my upline's group. I was going to make a card in a box but thought, why not use our Baker's Box thinlits instead?

This would be cute for a masculine card, Father's Day, etcetera. Why not give it a try? Just remember this will not fold flat to put in envelope. It would have to be hand delivered.

I typed up a pdf file so you can download the instructions.

Snow Friends Framelit Easter Bunnies!!!

Ever since I bought the Snow Friends Framelits Dies I have thought the smaller snowman would make an adorable bunny!!! Question was, how to make the ears? Not hard at all, I used the ice cream cone upside down from the same set. You do have to run the die through the Big Shot twice but it was worth it. I think it turned out adorable!!! NOTE: I used some retired designer series paper (DSP) on this as I do not own the current style.

DSCN1090

Recipe:

Stamp Set: Rotary Alphabet Stamp

Ink: Memento Black

Paper: Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue (retired), Wisteria Wonder designer series paper (DSP)-retired, Whisper White

Accessories: Big Shot, dimensionals, SNAIL, white enamel dots for tails, Snow Friends Framelits Dies, Wisteria Wonder ribbon, washi tape punch, Decorative Dots embossing folder
