Bella & Friends Meets Stamparatus

My card for you today was made using the Bella & Friends Stamp Set with the Stamparatus

I made this card back in March (you’ll hear me reference reserving the Stamparatus in my video) … but I totally forgot to post it.  I just happened upon it when I was cleaning off my memory card. 

There are three things retiring….

  1. Enamel Shapes 
  2. Soft Sky card stock
  3. Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper

In my video …. you’ll see I ran out of Enamel Shapes and I used Rhinestones instead. 

I used Stampin’ Blends Markers to color Miss Bella and the turtle …. hopefully all three will be back in stock soon!

  1. Pool Party Stampin’ Blends
  2. Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends
  3. Old Olive Stampin’ Blends

If you’ve not already ordered the Stamparatus … it will be available on June 1st.  Yay!!

Paper & Ink Sketches 24

I’m sharing Paper & Ink Sketches #24 with you today!

paperandinksketches24b

I love this Sketch because it’s super simple (sometimes a sketch can throw me for a loop).

I used the Flying Home Stamp Set with the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.

The card base is Soft Sky card stock and I used the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.

I colored the image with our Stampin’ Blends Markers and I can’t wait for them to get back in stock!!!!!

Paper & Ink Sketches #23

I’m super excited to share Paper & Ink Sketches #23 and I hope you like my card!!

paperandinksketches23b

We’re picking back up where we left off and we have a total of 48 Sketches planned for the coming months (two a month).

I used Thick Whisper White card stock for my card base with the Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper (four pieces total). 

I stamped the greeting from the Charming Cafe Stamp Set with Basic Gray Ink and cut it out with the 2″ Circle Punch.  And, layered it on the Tangerine Tango starburst cut out with the Starburst Punch.  Since the Starburst Punch is on backorder 🙁  you could use the Layering Circles Framelits.

You can flag the ends of the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper with the Banner Triple Punch … or the Tailored Tag Punch

To wrap up the card I added some Tutti-Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins and some Calypso Coral 1/8 Sheer Ribbon.

Here’s a picture of Paper & Ink Sketches #23.

Special Note:  Use Sketches as a starting point for your card making and feel free to make changes just as I did with my card.  I changed the ribbon and the measurements for the Designer Series Paper

Stampin’ Blends

Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning Friday, March 23, noon (MT).  As soon as they are available to order again I will make the announcement on my blog (and shout it from the roof top).  I already have projects and videos  planned out for the next month using the Blends and I will apologize in advance that you will continue to see them for a while.  I will do my best to give you advice on what other coloring tool you can use.   This does NOT affect my Stampin’ Blends giveaway this month, those babies are already in my possession (and worth gold at this point). 

Thanks & have a great day!!

p.s. thank you all for the kind emails and your suggestions regarding my headaches!!  I hope I’ve seen the last of them but this weather certainly doesn’t help!

The Little Things Halloween Card

Stampin’ Up! The Little Things Halloween Card

TheLittlethingshalloweencard

The card I’m sharing with you today is a card I designed for a swap that I participate in with Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.

I love swapping… as the cards I receive usually always inspire me when it comes time for me to create projects for my blog.   I’ll share a secret with you …. I ALWAYS get stressed out about my swaps and fear they’re going to hate my simple cards.  That’s one of the reasons why I almost always use our Paper & Ink Sketches!!    Which brings me to… this card was designed using Paper & Ink Sketches #6.  You can check it out here. 

I bet you’re going to ask … what happened after Sketch 22?  Honestly … life (I can’t sum it up in just a paragraph).  But, the good news is… we have Sketches 23-36 ready to go. The bad news is… it may be January before we can restart them.  I will say this … if life doesn’t throw us another curve ball this last quarter of the year, I’ll start them sooner.  

Enough about me… here’s the details about this card…

thelittlethingshalloweencardb

I used The Little Things Stamp Set with the 2″ Circle Punch … along with the Starburst Punch.

The base of my card is Very Vanilla card stock and I used it with the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.  All the measurements are posted in my Inspiration Sheet posted below or below the video box.

Cool Treats and Sketch 18

Cool Treats and Sketch 18

CoolTreatsaa

I’m sharing another card using Paper & Ink Sketches #18.

Yesterday I used the Succulent Garden Designer Series that has been added to the Sale a Bration selections.   And today I’m using the Cool Treats Designer Series Paper as it’s also a new Sale a Bration item.  

Over the next month you’ll see me use both of these Designer Series Paper a lot, regardless if they sell out because I’ve planned my projects ahead.  April and May are going to be really crazy busy months for everyone (retirement list, new catalogs, end of school year, trips, etc).

I’m excited to share I’ll be traveling to On Stage next week and I can’t wait to get the new Catalog in my hands!!!  Can you hear the excitement in my voice?

cooltreatsb

So, back to the card … it was made exactly like yesterdays card with the exception of the Designer Series Paper, colors and Ribbon.

I used Watermelon Wonder ink and the Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon, I thought they went well together on this card!

All the measurements and supplies are listed in the Inspiration sheet below.
