Giggle Greetings… Sometimes Life is the Pits! – Stampin’ Up!

Lately life has handed me more than my fair share of bad news, so it seemed like the perfect time to have a laugh.  Giggle Greetings is the perfect stamp set to put a little bit of joy into life when life is the pits!

Giggle Greetings (5 of 6)

I don’t mean to sound negative.  My life is full of wonderful blessings too (my new job, a loving family, and most importantly my precious son).  This card is my way of focusing on the positive and bringing some humor to the situation.  I created two different versions of this card because I just couldn’t make my mind up on the design.  Which is your favorite?

For the green and yellow version, I wanted to add a bow, but I didn’t have any Cherry Cobbler ribbon.  So, I used my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker to die a scrap of white satin ribbon.  It was super easy and did the trick perfectly!

I stamped the cherry bowl image on the inside of the card in Memento black ink.  I used a post it note to mask the greeting above and below the image.  I liked the simple sketched appearance of the stamped image, so I decided not to color it in on the inside of the card.

I like how these cards turned out.  I had fun coloring them with my Stampin’ Blendabilities markers, and as always, creating something fun took my mind off of other things.  I just love Stamping!

Watercolor Wonder Good Thoughts – Stampin’ Up!

I recently learned that a former co-worker of mine has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  I made this get well card featuring a sentiment from Perfect Pennants and the beautiful flowers from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper pack for her in an attempt to lift her spirits.  It is never fun to have the occasion to make this type of card, but I hope that it will brighten her day a little to know that she is not alone and that I am sending good thoughts her way!

Watercolor Wonder & Perfect Pennants (1 of 9)

This card was pretty quick and very simple to create.  I started with a Whisper White card base and layered on two different panels from Watercolor Wonder.  I inked around the edges of the panels with Tangerine Tango ink to add a little definition to the layers.

Next, I stamped the leaf image from Summer Silhouettes three times in Old Olive on the yellow and orange watercolor wash design from the DSP pack.  I cut out three flowers from a sheet of the rose design paper in the Watercolor Wonder pack and added them to the front of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally, I stamped the “Sending Good Thoughts Your Way” greeting on to a piece of polka-dot DSP and cut it out using my banner framelits dies.  I inked around the edges of the banner with Tangerine Tango ink.

I finished the inside of my card with the leaf motif and another rose from the Watercolor Wonder DSP.
