Blackberry Bliss

2014_07_18IMG_1620 For today’s card, I wanted to showcase the new in color, blackberry bliss.  I used a sheet of the Moonlight DSP paper stack #133701.   The Stampin Up DSP paper stacks sized perfectly for a card maker because they are  4 1/2 ” X 6 1/2 ” pieces of beautiful double sided paper.  Each paper stack comes in  paper 48 sheets of 12 doubled sided papers. For the main focal point of the card, I stamped the Happy Watercolor (now retired) flower and then used my Blackberry bliss ink and aqua painter pen to color in the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Sassy Salutations #126707. I added the panel to the inside of the On Film #132969 photo frame and added 3 rhinestones colored with the all new Rich Razzleberry blendabilites #131003.

Crisp Hello

2014_07_16IMG_1426 Today’s post is another card that I made with left overs laying on my table space.  Most of the stuff for this card is no longer available from Stampin Up but it features a pre-printed watercolor card that Stampin Up had available in the spring catalog. The crisp cantaloupe flower is from the now retired Happy watercolor  stamp set. I used the Deco Label framelits #130102 to anchor the cantaloupe circular sentiment.

Even though this watercolor card base is no longer available, Stampin Up sells many kits and card bases that you can use to add your own coordinating embellishments to suit the occasion.

Happy Day

2014_06_25IMG_0911 Today’s card is one that I have used for happy occasions and also for not so happy times just but swapping out the sentiment.  The card base is stamped with the Hardwood background stamp #133035 from the Stampin Up annual catalog. I then used the Hexagon Hive #132965 to create a trellis.  I stamped and hand cut the flower from the now retired Happy Watercolor stampset and added the little leaves from the Little Leaves sizzlet (now retired).  I added a piece of crushed curry Chevron ribbon #130019.  The sentiment is stamped from the Happy Day (now retired) stampset and then cut out with the Apothecary Accents #127003 label and finished with 2 basic rhinestones.

The In colors are here

2014_06_09IMG_1621 With every new Stampin Up catalog, Stampin Up says goodbye to some in colors and hello to new In colors. Today’s card showcases all 5 of the new2014-2016  In colors: Blackberry Bliss (background cardstock),Mossy Meadow (Upper left square),Hello Honey (Upper Right Square), Tangerine Twist( Lower Left Square), and Lost Lagoon (Lower Right Square).   Each square is the in color ink stamped from the Happy Watercolor (no longer available)stampset and then the floral image from the same set is stamped on top in black ink.  The yummy 3/8″ stitched satin ribbon is also featured on this card.  The 3/8″ stitched satin ribbon comes in all 5 in colors and is a tone on tone ribbon that ties up beautifully.

I love the new colors but my favorite is the Hello Honey because I just like to say it.

Double Happy

2014_05_13Pumpkin-Mambo Happy Watercolor 001

For today’s post, I am showcasing the Happy Watercolor flower stampset #133191 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  Cammie used the same layout but switched up the color scheme, sentiments and embellishments to give a different look.  The Happy Watercolor stamp set is so versatile but is only available until June 1.

Celebrate Mom

2014_05_11Mothers day

Today’s post is one of the mother’s day cards I made this year.    I kept it simple and used the fabulous Watercolor Wonder Designer Note cards #133362 as the card base and then stamped the flower from the Happy Watercolor stamp set #133188 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. I used 3 shades of Stampin Up purple inks and a blender pen to color in the flowers.  I hand cut a banner and stamped the sentiment and added a bow from the silver Bakers twine #132976.

Simple Blessed Easter

2014_04_14IMG_1125 Today’s card is the 3rd in my Blessed Easter series and I paired the Happy Watercolor #133191 stampset with the Blessed Easter #133212 single stamp from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. I used the blob stamp from the Happy Watercolor set to to get the color and then stamped the Blessed Easter stamp on top in black ink.  It does not get much easier than this to create a simple but pretty card.  I distressed the edges on the panel in wisteria ink and wrapped organza (now retired) ribbon to complete the card.

Fancy Schmancy

2014_03_27IMG_0622 Today’s post is an out of the ordinary for me.  I am really not a gold fan but this card came out great and is all product from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  The card base is the gold foil sheets #132622 embossed with the Ampersand #132970 and then the Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape #133000.  I added a hand cut a banner and added the sentiment from the Happy Watercolor #133191 stampset and a gold bakers twine #132975 bow.

This card turned out great and would be  great for  golden anniversary.

Cure for the Blues

2014_02_16IMG_0631 (2) Our dear friend and great Stampin Up customer, Sheri, fell as a result of this nasty Ohio weather.  She had surgery and is now recovering at home.  I wanted to take her blues away by sending her a pretty get well card.  I always tease her that she loves pastels and the retired Baja Breeze was one of her favorite colors so I pulled out the ink and paper and created this little beauty.

I wanted to use a stamp set that Sheri had not seen before so I used the Happy Watercolor #133188 stampset  from the Stampin Up occasions catalog to create the faux water color background and then stamped the flower on top of the splash of Baja.  I then stamped the flower 3 more times- twice on Baja blue and once on a scrap of the yellow Watercolor Wonder DSP.  I hand cut and pieced the flower together and popped it on top of the stamped image.  I added a sentiment from a retired stampset cut into a banner using the Bitty Banner Framelits #129267.

I was reluctant to purchase another stampset with flowers because I have so many sets but there is something about this set that I love.  I especially love the watercolor shapes that come in this set and can’t wait to use this set soon.  Get well soon Sheri.  I hope we can craft soon.

I lava you

2014_02_02Laural Mnt, Sunshine and Val 006-Val3

Today’s post is a “groovy” one that takes you back to the 1970’s when lava lamps were hip.  Cammie used the Happy watercolor #133191 stamp set from the Stampin Up occasions catalog and Baja breeze ink to create the background for this cool valentine.  She then stamped the  lava lamp from the Crazy Mixed up Love #131071 in the Stampin Up annual catalog and matted the panel on real read cardstock.  To make the valentine even groovier, she added to ribbons and bows using the 1/4 ” real red stitched ribbon.  Thanks for the blast from the past and making me happy with memories of my lava lamp.
