Lemon Lime Twist and Emerald Envy Smiling Card!

Got so excited when I saw the new Post Script Stamp in the new catalog.  Oh,my, so much fun.  It is a background stamp I had to use it first!  It is a large stamp, lovely full back ground for a regular card face or stamp it and cut up the stamped image to suit your design.  The square Very Vanilla Card Stock was stamped using Emerald Envy Ink.  Then I looked all over the stamp and found the perfect square for this card.  Die cut out and layered it with Emerald Envy and Lemon Lime Twist.  See below for a list of the products that I used on this card.

Sympathy Card using Stampin’ UP! Special Reason Bundle

This lovely card was inspired by Windy Ellard’s card you can see here Windy’s Wonderful Creations.  I changed the colors a bit and changed the sentiment.  I love this design!

Crumb Cake card base, using a layer of Rich Razzleberry behind the Whisper White Card Stock on the top.   Using the Stylish Stems Framelits die cut in the middle of the Whisper White Layer.  Sweet Sugarplum Ink was stamped in Whisper White and die cut using the largest flower.  Rich Razzleberry Ink was stamped and die cut.  The leaves are Old Olive stamped and die cut. The two flowers are raised a bit using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder  Stamp Set stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

The inside sentiment is from the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set stamped in Rich Razzleberry. The flower was stamped in Rich Razzleberry using the Flower stamp from the Special Reasons’ stamp set. The inside was layered using Rich Razzleberry Card Stock and Whisper White Card Stock.

Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point suitable to be a masculine sympathy card

Today I am featuring a Masculine Sympathy Card.  Sometimes those are hard to come up with.  This one has a base of Whisper White Card Stock.  Pacific Point Card Stock is the next layer on the front with  a piece of   Party Animal DSP on the upper 1/2 adhered with Snail adhesive.  Whisper White 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (Sending Love Ribbon Combo/Occasions Catalog) attached on the back on the left before adhereing the piece to the front of the card.  Later I added three larger pearl embellishment (Pearl Basic Jewels).

Next I stamped the lovely simple flower image from the Artistically Asian Stamp Set \ in Pacific Point Ink on Whisper White  Card Stock.  It was then easy to match an oval die  from Stitched Framelits (now available again!)  Then using the next size up oval from the Layered  Ovals Framelits dies I die cut an oval in Pacific Point Card Stock.  This was then adhered to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a little “dimension”.

The Sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and is stamped in Pacific Point Card Stock on Whisper White Card Stock.  It is also die cut using Oval Stitched Framelits and the next size up oval from the Layered Ovals Framelits.  Again it was adhered to the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals

The inside was finished by layering Pacific Point Card Stock on the Whisper White Card Base.  The image was stamped in the lower left  corner of the Whisper White Card Stock Layer in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped off one time to make the image a bit ‘dimmer’ on the inside.  All layers were adhered using SNAIL adhesive.  At the bottom of this blog is the list of products that I have used in this card.

Stampin’ Up! Petals and Paisleys Speciality DSP Thinking of you

Autumn, Fall and Thanksgiving Cards are so much fun  to create.  I think it’s the colors that represent Fall and Thanksgiving to me.  I love the golds, yellows, oranges,  rusty reds and dulled greens of fading leaves.  This card is no exception!  Delightful Dijon, Very Vanilla and Petals and Paisleys create a beautiful, elegant Thinking of You Card!  Hope you agree.

The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock layered with Delightful Dijon Card Stock.  The two panels are layered Very Vanilla with Petals and Paisleys Speciality Designers Series Paper.  Before adhereing the two panels to the front I added a horizontal ribbon in Delight Dijon, 3/8″ ribbon trio (Holiday catalog).  The panels were then adhered to front using SNAIL Adhesive.

The sentiment is from the Wetlands Stamp Set stamped in Delightful Dijon Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock.    It was then die cut using the Layering Oval Framelit Dies in a size to fit the sentiment.  Using the next size die the frame was cut in Delightful Dijon.  These layers were adhered together using SNAIL adhesive.  The finished sentiment piece was attached to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The little tail sticking out on the upper left side of the oval was just a small piece of the Delightful Dijon 3/8″ ribbon and attaching a glue dot kind of tucked it under the edge and leaving the tails sticking out.

The inside was finished by using Delightful Dijon Ink using the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set in two corners on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  This layer was then adhered to the back inside.
