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.

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.
