Springtime Foils & Stampin’ Blends

Happy Monday, Stamping Friends. I am back today with an easy WOW card for you to create. Springtime Foils is one of the new Sale-a-bration free items. This Designer Series Paper is shiny and smooth and oh so pretty. It makes lovely cards when left plain, but WOW cards when you color it with Stampin’ Blends.

Here are my cards:

Blends Coloring Tips

Tips for adding color: Start with the lightest color and add the darker highlights. Go back over it with the lighter color to blend and smooth the colors. The more you work with the colors the prettier it looks. Because this DSP is smooth you can even go back over the colors a few hours later. I found that waiting for the colors to blend and dry was helpful. Then you can go back and smooth the colors out if needed. The sentiment can be placed wherever you want. I looked at the flower to leaf balance and then decided where to place the sentiment.

Do you love these cards?

I sure do. So much so I have already mailed the birthday cards to friends!

Bird Banter for Fab Friday #131

Fab Friday #131

I knew Bird Banter would work just perfectly for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. Bird Banter is one of those stamp sets that makes you giggle. Everyone needs a laugh now and then.

Here is the sketch:

So simple, yet you can doll it up if that suits you. I chose to stay with the simple sketch but to add some details to the elements. Here is my card:

 #2108 Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog #Ginny Harrell #Bird Banter

The Berry Burst base is a standard A2 size. Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock at 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” Adhere to the card base. Cut the DSP 2” x 4 ¾” and use the Triple Banner Punch to make the tag. Use the Layering Circe Framelits to create the Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst elements. Stamp the parrot and color with Blends. Fussy cut the parrot. Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White and cut a notch on one end. Now you are ready to assemble your card. Tie a fluffy bow of Berry Burst Crinkle ribbon and adhere with a glue dot.

This crinkle ribbon is so yummy. It ties a soft and pretty bow.

 

Once you reach a “certain age” funny, sarcastic cards are the perfect choice and Bird Banter certainly is a funny stamp set. I absolutely love this stamp set!

I appreciate you stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Love You Still for Freshly Made Sketches #324

Freshly Made Sketches #324

Participating in a challenge is a good way to get your creative juices flowing. This sketch by Narelle Farrugia at Freshly Made Sketches is so clean and simple. I struggle with simple cards because I love embellishments.

Love You Still

Love You Still has some lovely images and the sentiments are spot on for a wedding or anniversary card. I can even see these sentiments working well for a baby card. So sweet!

Spring Foil Designer Series Paper – Sale-a-bration

The Spring Foil Designer Series Paper is one of the new offerings during Sale-a-bration. This paper can be yours for free with a $50.00 purchase. It gave me the perfect inspiration for this card. Mixing gold, silver and copper is very trendy. You can mix and match the papers and ribbons for a special on-trend card.

Tips and Tricks:

Start with a Smoky Slate card base. Heat emboss the sentiment using Gold Embossing Powder on Very Vanilla cardstock. The flourishes are die cut using the Flourish Thinlits. Use wax paper when cutting detailed elements. The wax paper helps the cardstock pop right out of the thinlit. One quick swipe with the Big Shot Die Brush will get all the tiny chads out of the thinlit. Layer the Gold Foil, DSP, ribbon and focal elements to add dimension and texture. Your beautiful card is complete.

It is so good to be back creating and stamping! I sure did miss my crafty time. Holidays are always fun, but coming home is special also. Now, if the laundry fairy would visit it would be even better!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy stamping!
