Varied Vases Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 New catalog

Simply loving this Varied Vases Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 New catalog bundle!  This is just a small sample of all the super cute flowers and vases included in this set!  As much as I absolutely love framelits sometimes the ease of a punch makes card making quick and easy.  A quick tip is to look at the orientation of the stamped image you want to punch so you can place it on the paper in the easiest way.

I created this card as an A2 landscape from Basic Black cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The Soft Seafoam layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Make sure and attach the polka dot ribbon before adhering this layer!  I cut 2 more pieces at 4″ and made a knot.  The top black layer is cut at 4.25″ x 2.75″, and the top stamped layer is 4″ x 2.5″

Stampin’ Up! Waterfront Cityscape

Stampin' Up! Waterfront Cityscape

My Stampin’ Up! Waterfront Cityscape was inspired by a recent Blog Hop I participated in.  I saw a night time skyline and loved playing with this idea.  I did start out with a color challenge in mind, but it quickly went in a different color direction…lol…  That’s how creativity flows sometimes and I feel like I’m just along for the ride.

I actually love sponging.  I find that if you start lightly it is a very forgiving and controllable technique.  The trick is that you can always add more color, but you can’t really take away.  Use a light hand and many layers.

To create the “buildings” on the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront Cityscape:

I used the skinny strip from the Waterfront stamp set and stamped varying heights in a row.  Then I flipped the stamp over and stamp again mirroring the “height” on the top.  Make sure to stamp off before stamping the mirror image buildings!  I used the little “hut” stamp for the tops of the buildings and a white gel pen for the windows. 

Remember to decorate your envelope!

Petal Passion DSP focal with Stampin’ Blends coloring

Petal Passion DSP focal with Stampin' Blends coloring

I simply adore this Petal Passion DSP focal with Stampin’ Blends coloring card.  The Petal Passion DSP has amazing prints that just beg to be colored and showcased!  What a perfect combination with the new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers!

There are many flowers and sets of leaves that can be colored and fussy cut to use on a variety of cards.  I have used them as accents on cards, or like here as a stand alone focal.  Yes the Petal Passion DSP is that great!

The card base is an A2 size portrait base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The white layer on the front and inside are cut at 5.25″ x 4″, and the pear pizzazz square on the front is cut at 3.75″ x 3.5″.  Wrap the ribbon around the two top layers before attaching to the base and pop up your focal with dimensionals.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Daisy Delight Quick & Easy Thank You card

Daisy Delight Quick & Easy Thank You card

This Daisy Delight Quick & Easy Thank You card was a happy accident.  I was cutting out daisies from another project and I liked the combination of these two colors!  The glitter enamel dots just make me happy!  I love having the varying shades in all the colors, and they can add that extra something to finish off a card.

This card starts with an A2 card base in whisper white cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The pool party layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, and the top white cardstock is cut at 5″ x 3.75″.  Next stamp the repeating sentiment along the right side in soft sky and calypso coral.  Be sure and stamp the stem in pear pizzazz before attaching the flower.  Add the soft sky classic weave knot and sprinkle a few glitter enamel dots.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!
