Dandelion Wishes – Thinking of You

I fell in love with Dandelion Wishes the moment I saw it. It brought back so many memories of picking dandelions, making daisy chain necklaces/crowns and blowing wishes once the dandelions turned in to puff balls.

Simple childhood games. So many good times!

Dandelion Wishes Stampin' Up! Ginny Harrell

I did a little research on dandelions: Did you know Dandelions are the flower of healing? Once they become puff balls they stand for the moving on to new beginnings.

We all thought they were just weeds.

After all this research I realized the sentiment I chose worked perfectly with this stamp set. Part of My Story is a Sale-a-bration set. It can be yours with a $50.00 purchase.

For the circle highlight I created a mask and used the sponge brayer to apply Daffodil Delight ink on my card front. Then I stamped my image and the sentiment. Super easy card to create multiples. I send a lot of Thinking of You cards.

Card Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 8 ½”  x 5 ½” scored and folded

Garden Impressions DSP: 5 ½” x 4 ¼”

Daffodil Delight Cardstock: 5 ¼” x 1”

Whisper White Cardstock: 5” x 3 ¾”

Ink: Memento Black and Daffodil Delight

The tiny butterfly is cut with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlit dies. HINT: You can cut the butterfly out of the center of your first layer of DSP. No one will ever know.

Two For the Price of One – Paper Players 428

Hello Friends. I have two fun cards to share with you today. Same card in two totally different color schemes.

A few weeks ago, I taught a Beginning Stamping class and we created this lovely card. I think blue and yellow combinations are some of my favorite. This card is so bright and cheery and makes me long for spring.

#simplestamping. Beauty Abounds

Then I saw the Paper Players #428 color challenge:

Here is the same card but different colors. I LOVE the difference and the colors just pop on this card.

(sorry the gingham ribbon is retired)

Changed the sentiment…

Friendship Card in Gorgeous Grape

I am continuing to work on my goal to have cards ready to send friends that need a little encouragement or a sweet thinking of you message.

Today I am using a set from the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up!®Annual Catalog. I didn’t purchase this set for a long time, but I kept seeing so many pretty cards I had to give in and buy it. I’m so glad I did. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

The bold Gorgeous Grape ink and cardstock are what make this card pop.

Look at the beautiful flower. It is so pretty. Adding the vellum leaves creates texture without overwhelming the sweet flower.

Thinlits and punches made this card a snap. It was easy to make several in a short amount of time. You could easily change the sentiment on this card and make it birthday or wedding. Love when that happens!

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!

Humming Along for Freshly Made Sketches

Hello Stamping friends. Time is flying by as we get ready for Christmas. Have you finished your Christmas cards? I still have a  few to complete.  I am sure they will get done, but I may be working up to the last day!

Today my post is not a Christmas card day. I created a thinking of you card for Freshly Made Sketches using a new stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Did you know Stampin’ UP! ® Demonstrators get to purchase from New Catalogs early? One more reason to become a demonstrator!

Here is the sketch FMS#366:

Here is  my Humming Along card:

This hummingbird was so much fun to color using Stampin’ Blends. I experimented with mixing some colors to get the shades I wanted. Of course, this bird is covered with Wink of Stella. It is hard to see the shine in a picture….

Confession time, this is the first time I had the nerve to cut the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper. I was so afraid I would mess it up. It was simple to cut and now I have more pieces to work with! This paper is beautiful!

The New 2019 Occasions Catalog is coming out soon.

You will be able to shop starting in January. If you don’t have a demonstrator you shop with and would like a catalog leave me a message and I will be glad to put one in the mail for you.

Thanks for stopping by today. Check back tomorrow for a blog hop with tons of inspiration for Thank You cards.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!

Sitting Here – Thinking of You

I held a club class yesterday and this Sitting Here card was one of our projects. I love the simplicity of this card and am so glad I will have 5 for my use. One can never have too many thinking of you cards. Now I can just reach in my card box and pull one out as needed.

Sitting Here Thinking of You

I left the inside blank to be able to write a personal message.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  • With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a card base of 11” x 4 ¼”. Score and fold at 5 ½”. I used Soft Sea Foam cardstock.
  • Use the Stampin’ Trimmer, cut Garden Impressions DSP 5 ¼” x 4”. Cut two pieces of Whisper White card stock 4 ½” x 3 ¾”. One for card front, one for inside.
  • Stamp front of card using Black Memento ink and Blueberry Bushel. Start stamping from the bottom up so you can get the spacing correct.
  • Color image with Soft Suede, Flirty Flamingo, and Pool Party Blends.
  • Stamp pillows on scrap pieces of cardstock and DSP. Color as desired and cut each pillow.
  • Assemble the card as shown.
  • Create a small banner and attach it to the top of your card. Add a tiny bow of baker’s twine.

Happy Stamping!

Rooted in Nature Easel Card

Today I am sharing a Rooted in Nature Thinking of You card that has a different type of easel front. For this card I also used Stitched Seasons Framelits.

rooted-in-nature-stampin'-up!-ginny-harrell

To create this card, you will die cut the middle-sized label for the framelits. Stamp the sentiment with Tranquil Tide ink.  Stamp three “small twig branches” on Mint Macaron card stock with Mint Macaron ink. Stamp three of the “fancy” leaves on Powder Pink with Calypso Coral ink. Stamp two “3 leaf” leaves on Tranquil Tide with Tranquil Tide ink. Die cut all the stamped leaves. Die cut one larger leaf from Cajun Craze card stock.

The card base in Cajun Craze cut 5 ½” x 4 ¼”. Cut a piece of Whisper White 5 ¼” x 4”. Cut a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock 6” x 2 ¼”. Cut DSP and 6” x 2”. Adhere DSP to the Tranquil Tide leaving a border on the bottom edge. Score at 2” from the bottom edge and ¼” from the top edge. Fold and crease the ¼’ end and adhere that edge to the back of the Whisper White piece. You will then adhere the Whisper White piece to the card base. This will create your easel. Fold at the 2” score and adhere the label to the 2” area. Now you are ready to adhere all your leaves, bow and embellishments. Fold easel up so you will know where to adhere the large Cajun Craze leaf. Use dimensionals for the leaf. Add other leaves as desired. Add sentiment. The Cajun Craze leaf will then hold your easel in place.

Here is a side view of the Rooted in Nature card that will help you see how this card works.
