Adventure Bound DSP Stack

Posted on

The Adventure Bound DSP Stack is something very different to what you normally see on offer from Stampin’ Up! Some of the designs are photo-like which really had my head-spinning.

One in particular, the picture of sun streaming down into the forest, really did my head in hence I challenged myself to use it. Here they are…

This next design is something I’ve wanted to try for the longest time but could never settle on a stamp to use. Well, this DSP certainly solved this problem.

Adventure Bound - Simply Wonderful - JIF

My last card utilized the top of the sheet above. As you know I like to utilize every little piece of DSP and Cardstock I have with this piece being NO different. The wood-paneling is also from the Adventure Bound DSP.

Adventure Bound - Curtains - JIF

I’m lovin’ this Sahara Sand 7/8″ Lace Trim. There’s no denying, when you first look at it you are reminded of the lace on your Grandma’s well-worn old knickers but it takes on a new life when teamed with all the beautiful colors from Stampin’ Up!

Rainbow Butterflies!

Posted on

I am having SUCH fun with the fringe scissors from the Celebrate the Everyday catalog. Aah, seriously, why couldn’t this catalog simply be called the Spring Catalog, for me it makes so much MORE sense but hey, there’s only a couple more weeks left of it so I’ll stop my moaning but keep that in mind if there was anything in it that you haven’t ordered yet but would like!

Feel Goods - Rainbow Butterflyies - JIF

I love the end result of this card and did you notice how I’ve used some of the left-over Silver Glimmer Paper? I’m still in two minds as to whether or not I should have dry embossed the Silver Foil Paper. What do you think?

She Believed She could… so she did!

Posted on

This is one of those cards that looks like you’ve gone to a lot more effort than you really have. Another thing, I’m not really a yellow person, yellow is never my first choice of color, yet here I’ve used So Saffron twice in the one week!

She believed she could

On a So Saffron Base I’ve added Cajun Craze to border the Natural Ivory which I’ve spritzed with the Cajun Craze and Chocolate Chip then added Mini Silver Brads to each corner. The sentiment from Feel Goods stamp set was stamped in Cajun Craze.

She believed she could butterfies

Then in Cajun Craze the rectangular Designer Framed was embossed then fussy-cut out. To the center of this frame I simply added a piece of the Gingham Garden DSP and from the reverse side of that same paper, I punched two different sized butterflies, layering one upon the other. Adding some bling to the butterflies with Rhinestone Jewels and a hint of Dazzling Diamonds (I couldn’t resist!).

Bring on the Sunshine…

Posted on

Or should I be saying bring on the new catalog, I’m not sure but before the 2013-2014 IB&C goes live in a matter of hours, here’s one last card with products from the Spring Catty which will be finishing tomorrow night at midnight. So… bring on the sunshine!

Inkee Fiddlings - Bring on the Sunshine

Wow, the flash makes it look as if I’ve used a lot more Dazzling Details than I have! It’s only on the leaves and flower petals believe it or not. Isn’t the bird cute though? It’s a strip of DSP from the Birds of a Feather collection.Inkee Fiddlings - Bring on the Sunshine - Birds of a Feather

The card was seeming a little flat so I added one of the Designer Builder Brads to the center and to the center of that I’ve added Basic Pearl Jewels (uh-oh, and I thought I’d been using a lot of the butterflies lately...).

Five Minute Friday!

Posted on

This card all but made itself. A few weeks back I was once again pondering what could be done with the a couple of the designs in the SU! Print Poetry DSP Stack as the design was almost an embellishment itself.

Typically, as soon as I was actually holding the DSP in my hand I knew exactly what I was going to do. How cute is this? (Until I looked at this photo I hadn’t realized I have yet to dust off the Dazzling Details, oops!)

The Best Things in Life

This is a closer look at the card. The DSP has been trimmed to fit the entirety of the card front. For the sentiment I chose one from the Feel Goods set in the Spring Catty (which finishes next Friday… just sayin‘).

Butterflies and Flowers!

Admittedly it could have been even faster even I had remembered to use the butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri which co-ordinates with the butterfly punch but as luck had it though I had two of these already cut out on my desk so…

Oh how I love butterflies and flowers!

With a couple of glue dots I adhered the butterflies so their wings were three-dimensional then added both some Dazzling Details and Pearl Basic Jewels to each.

Card Recipe
Stamp Set: Feel Goods, Papaya Collage
Card-stock: Not Quite Navy
DSP: Print Poetry DSP Stack
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Embellishments: 5/8″ Vanilla Flower Trim, Pearl Basic Jewels,
Dazzling Details
Tools: Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Mini Glue Dots,
Sticky Strip, Two-Way Glue

How quick and easy was this, yet how fabulous was the result?

Let me know how your’s go and don’t forget, we really are on the final count-down now for the Spring Catty… only seven days to go so please, PLEASE contact me today to place your order. Particularly if you want any of those Vanilla Flowers, Print Poetry DSP and the Feel Goods Stamp Set.

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
