I hope your week is going well so far! I had stampin’ night the other night and one of the cards to make was this Easter card. I got a bit of inspiration for Pinterest. I used the set Summer Silhouettes and stamped the flower in Sahara Sand, Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana. I then stamped the centers of the flowers and the sentiment in Basic Gray. The sentiment is from the retired set Delightful Dozen, but it is my only Easter stamp so I had to use it! I pulled out some Daffodil Delight grosgrain ribbon and tied it around the card. This card is also for the challenge at SU Only since it to create an Easter themed card! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
I have not participated in a challenge at The Paper Craft Crew in a while, but this sketch pulled me in. I started with a base of Smoky Slate and like I realized a couple posts ago, it looks great paired with pastels. I added a Tea Doily and stamped the flowers from the set Summer Silhouettes. Behind that layer, I added some Coastal Cabana ribbon for a bit of dimension. On the Decorative Label punch, I stamped the Thank You from the set Lacy & Lovely. I added a retired Perfect Plum button and a couple of rhinestones. Thanks for stopping by!
Did you see the photo inspiration challenge at Stampin’ Royalty? How can it get better than gray, yellow, and quatrefoil? I am loving the quatrefoil pattern right now, I even bought curtains for my stampin’ room with that pattern. See below!
I just got them the other day so I am super excited to hang them up! But anyway…onto the card. So I chose the pattern from the bottom right picture for some inspiration which coordinates nicely with the Mosaic Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up! On top of the Basic Gray, I layered a piece of Crushed Curry and a piece of Whisper White. On the white, I stamped the pattern stamp from the set Summer Shilhouettes in Crushed Curry. I added a bit of retired Basic Gray ribbon and tied it in a bow. To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from the set Regarding Dahlias in Basic Gray. Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you are having a great weekend. Today I created a card for the challenge at Case Study Challenge Blog. The inspirational card was beautiful with clean lines and lots of white space so that is what I tried to create. I started out with a base of Whisper White and added another layer of Whisper White. I rounded the upper right corners on both with a circle punch. I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! set Summer Silhouettes because I thought the leaves would be perfect. I stamped the leaves three times in Lucky Limeaid and then off stamped twice to get a lighter image. Next I stamped the little flower bursts in Pool Party. I added the sentiment which came from the set Upsy Daisy in Not Quite Navy. I wrapped two strands of Pool Party Baker’s Twine around the bottom of the card. I usually don’t create white on white cards, but I am really happy with how this one turned out. Thanks for stopping by! Happy stamping!
Today I have a card to share with you for sketch challenge at Unscripted Sketches. If about a year ago when Summer Starfuit debuted, you would have told me that I would love it, I would have told you that you are crazy. But, after using it and pairing it with a couple of different colors, I really do like it. I think Crumb Cake works great with Summer Starfruit so I chose that as my base and rounded the corners. I created a flag using my square punch from some Summer Starfruit cardstock. I have to tell you, it has been a while since I have pulled out my embossing supplies, but I actually did for the design on the flag. I used the pattern stamp from the set Summer Silhouettes that I embossed in clear embossing powder. I actually stamped the image twice using my Stamp-a-ma-jig (see tutorial here). I added a button tied with some Baker’s Twine. I pulled out my two stamps that I got with my first Paper Pumpkin kit and stamped the ink spots randomly around the card and the sentiment in Basic Gray. I showed this card to my husband and he said “looks kinda utilitarian”…surprisingly, that is kinda what I was going for =) Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
