Thinking of you… still!

This card came about quite by accident, all because of the way this DSP from the Print Poetry DSP Stack and the Very Vanilla looked together. Layered with the Just Thinking Stamp the effect is quite elegant I think.

For ages now I’ve had the Adorning Accents Embossing Folders along with the corresponding Adorning Accents Edgelits so what better time to take them out for a test drive.

Added to this Just Thinking stamped twice in Midnight Muse then one die-cut with the Windows Frames Collection Framelits, the other I hand-cut the center, adding some Basic Pearl Jewels. Completing the card is some 7/16″ Trim Ribbon.

Just Thinking… again!!!

As promised, here is my girlie take on the Just Thinking stamp available now in the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog but only until the end of next week, May 31!

Inkee Fiddlings - Just Thinking of You - Raspberry Ripple

On a background of Whisper White I’ve adhered some Print Poetry DSP layered onto Raspberry Ripple. Still in the Raspberry Ripple I’ve used the heart adorning accent folder to emboss an inch-wide strip which has been gently rubbed with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint then centered on the card. To this on either side I’ve added some of the 5/8″  Flower Trims.

For the stamp I used Raspberry Ripple Classic Ink on Whisper White, cutting close to the edge. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, this was centered on a frame die-cut from the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies in Raspberry Ripple. This too had Stampin’ Dimensionals added to it along with the Dazzling Details before being centered onto the inch embossed strip.

Just Thinking!

This is the name of one of my  “go-to” stamps at the moment – I just love it. It’s a single stamp currently available in the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog (which concludes next Friday… just saying) that also happens to co-ordinate with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies which were thankfully carried over from the Holiday Catalog for those of us who “forgot” to buy them then, phew!

Anyways, back to Just thinking, what can I say, I simply love it for its versatility.

Just Thinking Stamp

Without even thinking, my cards tend to become “girlie” so I set the challenge for myself today to make this card “masculine“!

Inkee Fiddlings - Just Thinking - Summer Starfruit

The base of the card is the beautiful Summer Starfruit Card-stock matched with Early Espresso and the retiring Night Quite Navy. I’ve cut free-hand around the circle and also removed the word FRIEND from the sentiment to keep in with the masculine theme. I gently rolled the cut edge of the circle around on the ink pad then sponged it to help “even out” my cutting.

Inkee Fiddlings - Not quite Navy - Thinking of You

Although I’m not a girlie-girl myself, I do have a habit of putting ribbon on my cards and as this challenge was for a masculine card what I’ve done is gathered up strips of DSP to create a ribbon like effect. To help create the folds as I’ve inherited my father’s fingers (short and stubby) I utilized the new Paper-Piercing Tool from the current IB&C (p.181). The paper ribbon wasn’t enough I felt so added a strip of Summer Starfruit which I had paper snipped the entire length. (Not sure where the color went, with or without bright lights it remained washed out, bizarre…)

As you can see from the bottom right-hand corner above, I also spritzed the card with Early Espresso to give the base more depth.

Five Minute Friday!

Come the end of the week it’s good to feel as if one has accomplished something doesn’t it?! So I had a ponder…

This turned out to be a far easier task than first thought as all I had to do was look at my table as I held my whisper white card-stock. There’s something to be said for we who find it hard to throw out anything!

Inkee Fiddlings - Kindness Matters - Five Minute Friday

How quick and painless is this – tuck a couple of branches from the Bird Builder Punch in the retiring Mustard Card-stock under a left-over strip of the Print Poetry DSP on the right-hand side.

Then in the center of a die-cut flower in Raspberry Ripple Card-stock place a Designer Builder Brad with a Large Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center. To finish-off add some Dazzling Details (if I refer to Dazzling Diamonds this is what I’m talking about) around the Rhinestone Jewel and the lower edge of the leaves. Then in Raspberry Ripple Ink stamp Kindness Matters. Ta dah!

Honestly, it may take you only five minutes but I think it looks so much more. Enjoy your long week-end!

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