Flower Patch Fun

Posted on

Finally after weeks of sitting on my table, teasing me, I finally put ink to cardstock last night to make a couple of cards with the wonderful new Flower Patch Stamp Set.

Why is whenever I think I have a quick and easy card in mind it then takes me hours to complete a single one. This was my first card. Initially the Washi Tape was what tripped me on this card until I remembered something from this coming Thursday.

Flower Patch - Washi Tape - JIF

This second card is even more clean-cut but took forever as my ink-pad was just too juicy, leaving “bubble gaps” on my stamped image which I just wasn’t happy with. With the help of a little silver heat-embossing, I’m now MORE than happy with this card!

Flower Patch - Pool Party - JIF

CARD RECIPES
Cardstock: Whisper White, Marina Mist, Pool Party
Stamp Set: Flower Patch
Classic Ink: Marina Mist, Pool Party
Specialty Paper: Silver Foil
Washi Tape: Beach House, Tell You on Thursday
Bakers Twine: Gold Metallic
Heat Embossing: Heat Gun, Versamark, Silver Embossing Powder
Embellishments: Basic Rhinestone Jewels
Essentials: Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Stick Strip,
Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Scrub & Mist

Time to think Christmas!

Posted on

People often laugh at me when I say I’m beginning my Christmas cards in August but as we all know, once August rolls into September, times flies by. School begins, for us we have leave, there’s Halloween, then with Christmas preparations and parties, it’s Christmas!

Now, let me clarify something here, when I say I’m BEGINNING my Christmas cards what I’m saying is I’m designing and deciding what products I’ll use, noting how many cards are required and how I’ll “pose” the children this time. I’m not physically sitting down and making them although I do have intentions year of doing so, lol! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! released “A” stamp set last month to whet our appetites and get the old grey matter bubbling with ideas in readiness for the release of the holiday catty at the end of this month.  Here is the teaser set that’s available now…

Beauty of the Season

How beautiful is this set? It’s the perfect set for your Aqua Pens or even your Blendabilities. It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

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

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
