Serene Silhouettes Stamp-a-Stack – Stampin’ Up!

On Friday, I shared an elegant card featuring the Serene Silhouettes stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) from Stampin’ Up!  I liked the card so much, that I decided to create a stamp-a-stack collection around it.  If you live in the Atlanta area and would be interested in making this gorgeous card set , please contact me to sign up for my Stamp-a-Stack class on Saturday, May 3rd from 7:00-9:00 p.m.  We will create this set and another one (I’ll post about that one soon).  The cost of the class is $15 and includes all consumable materials, use of my stamping supplies, and I will do all the prep work… you can’t beat that!  I would love to connect with some of you face to face for an opportunity to truly create together!

I maintained the same design elements for all four cards of this set.  For details about the techniques used in this project, please click here.  Below, you will find card recipes for the specific supplies and dimensions for each card.

Simply Sketched, You Make Me Happy! – Stampin’ Up!

Today’s card features the Simply Sketched (wood mount and clear mount), Papillon Potpouri (wood mount and clear mount) and Perfect Pennants (wood mount and clear mount) stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!  The Simply Sketched stamp set is one of the lovely hostess items you can earn through the Stampin’ Rewards program.  I am in love with the flower in this set! This is the second card I’ve created with it this week.  I think you can see by the different colors I used how versatile that little flower can be.  (There’s a cute little bird in that set too.  I haven’t used that one yet, but I expect you will be seeing it here soon.)

If you like what I’ve created today, I would love it if you would leave me a comment.  On March 31st I will do a drawing and one lucky person who left me a comment will receive a handcrafted card in the mail!  Also, if you enjoy reading my posts, why not have them delivered to your inbox automatically.  Just click on the “follow” button in the sidebar.  I get super excited every time that I see someone else is following my blog.  It just makes my day to know you are following along with me as I create these posts!

Simply Sketched Perfect Pennants (5 of 6)

Today’s card was inspired by:

I began my card with a  Whisper White card base.  Then I added a panel of Tempting Turquoise card stock using SNAIL adhesive.  Next, I dry embossed a panel of Island Indigo card stock using the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and added that to the front of my card.  For my focal point, I layered panels of Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight as the base for my three dimensional elements.

Simply Sketched Perfect Pennants (3 of 6)

Next, I used Staz-on Black ink and my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the flower and leaf elements from the Simply Sketched stamp set onto a square of  watercolor paper. I also stamped an additional flower and leaf on another scrap of watercolor paper to add some dimension later.  I colored my stamped images using the Brights Collection Stampin’ Write Markers (Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, & Daffodil Delight) and a Blender Pen to give it a watercolor effect.  I cut out the extra flower and leaves using paper snips.  Then, I  attached the leaves to the foreground of my square with mini glue dots and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to add my flower on top of the one on the square of watercolor paper for some extra depth.  Then I stamped the butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set onto some Whisper White card stock using Staz-on Black and colored it with my markers.  Then I cut it out using the Bitty Butterflies Punch.  I added a Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accent to the butterfly and added it to my square using Stampin Dimensionals.  I adhered my watercolored panel to a square of Whisper White and added the finished piece to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Simply Sketched Perfect Pennants (1 of 6)

Then I stamped the “You Make Me Happy” greeting from the Perfect Pennants stamp set on Whisper White card stock using my Tempting Turquoise Classic Stampin’ Pad.  I cut that out using the Banners Framelits Dies (2nd from the center).  I also cut a banners in Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo (3rd from the center). (Remember, the Perfect Pennants stamp set and the Banners Framelits can be purchased as a bundle for 15% off, wood mount and clear mount.)  I layered my greeting onto the Island Indigo banner and trimmed it down. Then I repeated the process with the Tempting Turquoise banner.  Finally, I finished my design off with a button from the Designer Subtles Collection and some bakers twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (Sale-a-bration item).

Simply Sketched Perfect Pennants (4 of 6)

For my finishing touch, I stamped the leaves from Simply Sketched and the butterfly from Papillon Potpouri on the inside of my card and colored them to match the front of the card.

I love how my watercolored square turned out.  The colors just pop off the page, and the dimension added by the 3-D elements make it all really jump out at you.  If you liked my post today, please pin it to Pinterest for me.  I am new to blogging and I would love your help in developing a blog following.  If you scroll to the bottom of the post, you will find a “pin it” button just below my supply list for the project… and, don’t forget to leave me a comment for your chance to win a handcrafted card!

Make a “Mosaic Madness” Wish with Stampin’ Up!

I have been having lots of fun with challenges this week.  I wanted to see how many challenges I could cover with a single card.  It really gets the creative juices flowing!  Today’s card features the Perfect Pennants (wood mount and clear mountand Mosaic Madness (wood mount and clear mount) stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!  I love that the Modern Mosaic stamp set also has a coordinating punch and embossing folder… oh the possibilities! LOL!

If you enjoy this card, please leave me a comment.  I would love to hear what you think.  On March 31st, I will do a drawing and one lucky person who left me a comment will receive a beautiful handcrafted card in the mail!  Also, if you enjoy reading my posts, why not have them delivered to your inbox automatically.  Just click on the “follow” button in the sidebar.

Mosaic Madness4

This card combines three challenges in one:  SCS Sketch Challenge #477,  Color Challenge #467, and SUO #91

Screen Shot 2014-03-01 at 10.14.17 PM

I began my card with a Bermuda Bay card base, then I dry embossed a Soft Sky panel using the Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered this panel to the card base using SNAIL adhesive.  Next, I cut a banner in Midnight Muse card stock using the largest of the Banner Framelits Dies.  I trimmed 1/2 inch off of the banner from each side to make it the appropriate width for my card design.  Then, I added panels of Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla using SNAIL.  (Before adhering the panels, I inked the outside edge of the Very Vanilla panel using a sponge dauber and my Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin’ Pad.)

Mosaic Madness2

After creating the basic design, it was time to add the details. I used Bermuda Bay ink for all of the stamping in this project.  I stamped the “Make a Wish” greeting from the Perfect Pennants stamp set (available as a bundle with the Banner Framelits Dies for a 15% discount off the regular price; wood mount and clear mount).

Mosaic Madness8

Next, I stamped some of the stamps from the Mosaic Madness stamp set and cut them out using the Mosaic Punch.  (The Mosaic Madness stamp set and the Mosaic Punch are also available as a bundle for 15% off the normal price; wood mount and clear mount.)  For a little bit of “bling” I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewel Accents to my punched pieces.  Finally, I stamped some banners using the Perfect Pennants and Banner Blast (Sale-a-bration item) stamp sets.  I punched out the small banners using the Banner Punch (Sale-a-bration item), and I attached all of the detail pieces to the front of the card using  Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Mosaic Madness6

As a finishing touch, I added a Very Vanilla panel to the inside of my card and stamped it with the banner stamps I used on the front.

I am pleased with how this card turned out.  I like that it could be used for a man’s birthday card too.  I tend to make my cards very “girly” so this one is pretty neutral for me!  If you enjoyed my post, please pin it to Pinterest for me.  I am working on building up my blog following and could use your help in getting the word out!  If you scroll to the bottom of the post, you will find a “pin it” button just below my supply list for the project… and, don’t forget to leave me a comment for your chance to win a handcrafted card in the mail!

Life is Wonderful with Perfect Pennants and Mixed Bunch from Stampin’ Up!

My card today was created using the Perfect Pennants, Mixed Bunch, and Flower Shop stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!  It also features the Modern Mosaic and Decorative Dots (Sale-a-bration item) embossing folders.  The Decorative Dots embossing folder is one of my favorite items available FREE with a $50 purchase through March 31st!  There are just so many things you can create with that cute design.  So, if you love this card and want to get some of the supplies, now is a great time.  For your convenience, I have hyperlinked the names of products to my online store… just click and you’ll be on your way to creating this beautiful card too!

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch3

I started my creation by cutting panels of Whisper WhiteCoastal Cabana and So Saffron card stock.  Next, I dry embossed the Coastal Cabana and So Saffron panels using the Modern Mosaic and Decorative Dots embossing folders using my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.  Then, I added some Coastal Cabana Stretch Ruffle Trim to the top of the yellow panel with SNAIL adhesive.  I used the Adorning Accents Edgelits to cut a scalloped strip of Whisper White card stock, and I used a small hole punch to create a hole at each scallop to give my trim an eyelet lace effect.  Finally, I  adhered it to the bottom of the Coastal Cabana panel and layered all of my panels on a  Basic Gray card base.

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch12

Once the foundation for my card was finished, it was time to embellish it with a lovely flower and my card greeting.  I chose the “Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful” sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) for my greeting.  I love this one because it can be used for many different occasions.  I stamped it on Whisper White card stock using the Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Padthen I cut it out using the 3rd smallest Banner Framelits Die.   (Remember, the Perfect Pennants stamp set and Banner Framelits Dies can be purchased together as a bundle for 15% off the regular price. Available in wood mount or clear mount bundles.)

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch17

After stamping the greeting, I used a sponge dauber to apply ink to the edges of my banner for a little added contrast.  I attached a brad from the Vintage Trinkets accents and elements  set to the top of the banner and stuck it to the front of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped two round medallions using my  Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin’ Pad and inked around the edges after I cut them out.  Then I attached one of them to the bottom of the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I set the other one aside to use on the inside of my card later.

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch5

For my flower, I used my So Saffron Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp a large flower using the Mixed Bunch stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) and a small flower using the Flower Shop stamp set (wood mount and clear mount).  Then I punched out the flowers using the Blossom Punch and the Pansy Punch.  (The Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy Punch are available as a bundle for 15% discount off the regular price.  Available in  wood mount and clear mount).

The leaves of the flower were stamped using the leaf stamp from the  Secret Garden stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) and my Pear Pizzazz Classic Stampin’ Pad.  I inked up my leaf stamp and then stamped it twice without re-inking between stamps.  This gave my design some added dimension and contrast.  Then I used the Secret Garden Framelits Dies to cut out the leaf images.

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch12

Finally, I attached my leaves with Glue Dots and layered my flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The center of the flower was finished by adding a large pearl from the Basic Pearls Jewel Accents.

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch13

I finished the inside of my card by adding a panel of Whisper White card stock with a strip of So Saffron card stock along the bottom.  I brushed Coastal Cabana ink along the bottom edge of the trim using a sponge dauber to give it some extra contrast.  Then I attached the second medallion I created earlier to the center of the yellow strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you have enjoyed my share today.  I certainly enjoyed creating it.  I just love the color combination.  I know that someone special will enjoy receiving it at just the right moment.
