Pretty Pink (Freshly Made Sketches #301)

Posted on

My good intentions for completing one or two cards during the week, at my leisure, are once again out the window as here it is Sunday afternoon with the clock ticking. Therefore without further ado, this is my card.

And this is the original 301 sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. As you can see, I rotated my card to stand upright. Landscape just wasn’t working for me today.

Isn’t the pink foil on kraft cardstock just the nicest? It’s a fabulous DSP package that’s available in the current annual catalog from Stampin’ Up!

Remember, you can always order from me if you’d like to add some to your stash… I’m only to happy to help!😆

Halloween Wondrous Wreath

Posted on

The Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set  (135047 – $31.95) on page 9 of the Holiday Catalog has had to be one of my most “go to” stamp sets for this season. Hence it was my first choice to use in a workshop a few weeks.

The hostess had requested we make a Christmas Card but I really wanted to highlight other occasions you could utilize these stamps.

JIF - Wreath - Halloween

Making this Halloween Card I was reminded how this bird’s appearance could be altered so quickly merely by the placement of its wing. If the wing tip is placed up it makes the bird look cute. Where as placing the tip down and moving the larger part of the wing up, gives the bird a more sinister, Halloween appearance don’t you think?

A quick reminder the last order I’ll be placing for the year to ensure deliveries before Christmas will be taking place this evening should you wanted to add an order. HOWEVER , 24 Hour shopping is still available from my website!

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

Stars for You

Posted on

The inspiration for this card came from Michelle Last over in the UK. It was perfect as it was just what I wanted for a Shaker Card.

On a base of Crumb Cake Cardstock, dry embossed stars also with Crumb Cake Cardstock were framed with Very Vanilla Cardstock. I then Silver Heat Embossed two stamps from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set. Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Baker’s Twine finishing off the card before I adhered the Shaker Frame.

For the Shaker Frame a piece of Window Sheet was cut to size then adhered to the top piece where a 1-3/8″ Circle was punched. Onto the bottom embossed piece a 1-1/2″ foam Shaker Frame was attached. I then added my Silver Foil Stars I punched with the Confetti Stars Punch.

Age Awareness

Posted on

Today’s 2-4-Tuesday is the Age Awareness Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. When I first saw this set I just knew I had to have it. Of course,  sitting there this morning with it, well, my mind was… blank!

Fortunately the courier arrived just at the same time with another box of goodies from Stampin’ Up! which included the wonderful Filigree Frame Textured Impression Embossing Folder.

WOW, this is going to quickly become my “go-to” for a quick card as it creates such a beautiful effect, requiring little else besides a sentiment and perhaps an embellishment or two.

This next card was the result of a total accident. I’d actually punched some Petite Petals from the Sweet Taffy DSP for the previous card before realizing if I wanted to give it to a male, well, flowers weren’t going to cut it. Hence the Silver Glimmer Paper stars cut from the Star Framelits.

Looking at the DSP I wished I hadn’t punched the flowers thus began attempting to “replace” the flowers. Didn’t take long to conclude this was NOT going to work but could in-fact work for me in another way.

The flowers were then each finished off with a silver sequin from the Frosted Sequins available now in the Holiday Catty with a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel in its center to complete it. I couldn’t resist then adding more bling to the left-hand corner of the card!

Pictogram Punches

Posted on

When the new catalog came out I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set on page 89. It was a slow start but eventually the wheels began turning and I began creating. This was my first card using the colors Pacific Point and Soft Sky as a border all with a hint of silver.

Pictogram - Stars and Moon - JIF

After such a clean card I needed more color so created this one. For the vase I used Stampin’ Markers but I wasn’t happy with the strength of color in the vase so “touched it up” with the Not Quite Navy Blendability. Note to self: use LIGHT colors FIRST not the dark! The “thanks” sentiment is from the Oh My Goodies Stamp Set.

Pictogram - Pink Flowers - JIF

This next card came together all by itself. The What’s Up Punch providing the large Red Glimmer Arrows on either side of the I {heart} U sentiment.

Pictogram - I Heart You - JIF
