Celebrate Spring with a Handmade Card


Petal Palette Stampin' Up!
Hello Friend,

Yesterday's late season snowfall is rapidly melting in today's sunshine.  We have a black metal roof on are house and the  booming sound gigantic drifts sliding to the ground is rather exciting.  Couple that with the sweet sound of eager song birds, I can't help but smile.  Today's card made with the Petal Palette Bundle celebrates the spring sunshine, the song birds and the melting snow.

Retiring Soon

Not me, but the fabulous 2016-2018 In Colors.  Which is your favorite?  Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach or Sweet Sugar Plum?  That means that any thing involving the 2016-2-18 In Colors including ink, ink refills, Card Stock, Ribbon, Designer Paper, Kits and anything else with these colors will land on the Retirement List soon.  And if it is anything like past years, they will be flying off the shelves.  In past years, the ink refills were gone in a blink of eye.  Get ahead of the crowd and get them before they are gone for good.

Stampin' Blends Announcement

Extremely long lead times with Stampin' Up!'s supplier, combined with an unexpected increase in demand has forces Stampin' Up!'s hand in making the difficult decision to make our entire Stampin’ Blends product line unorderable until approximately the end of May. This is not a decision made lightly.

Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning Friday, March 23, noon (MT).

Rich Razzleberry Flirty Flowers


Flirty Flowers Stampin' Up!Hello Friends,

My Stampin' Blend Markers are making me fall in love with coloring all over again.  For today's card, I created a playful backdrop with the Flirty Flowers stamp set.  These quirky little flowers are so fun to color.


Flirty Flowers Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Blends Markers are fabulous for coloring line art stamped images, but did you know that you can also use them to color soft, billowy backgrounds.  For today's card, I colored with the brush tip end of my Light Crumb Stampin' Blend between my flirty flowers.

Coloring Ribbon for Card MakingQuick Tips

I love the Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon the way it, but did you know that you can also add color?  Yep, for today's card I colored a length with my Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend.

I created the lovely detailed scallop with a die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies set and Gold Foil Paper.  The sentiment label was cut with the same dies.  The Petals & More Thinlits Dies were designed to be used with the Petal Palette stamp set, but don't stop there.  As you can see, they pair nicely with the Flirty Flowers stamp set too.

Add extra shimmer to your colored images with your Wink of Stella Pen.  Simply, brush it over your colored images.

7 Painted Harvest Cards

 

Painted Harvest Stampin' Up!
 

Hello Friends,

Happy Friday!  We've all seen lots and lots of beautiful cards made with the 2-step sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  They're all over the internet.  But did you know that the leaves and itty bitty acorn can make equally beautiful cards?  Plus, the leaflet has a coordinating punch.  The acorns and the leaflets are a real stand out against the the crisp Whisper White Embossed background mounted on a Crumb Cake Card Base.  The other little bit of loveliness behind the acorns and leaflets are a snippet of Copper Trim loosen into a ribbon of fun, a wee bit of burlap ribbon for a little more texture and a swirl of Linen Thread to finish it up.

Be sure to scroll down and see all 7 Painted Harvest Cards.  There's lots of eye candy for you to see made with the Painted Harvest stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  And at the tail end of this post I've listed all the supplies needed for making this top card.


Painted Harvest Stampin' Up!

I stamped my sentiment with Soft Suede ink which looks almost golden against my collage.  I stamped my leaflets with Always Artichoke and Soft Suede inks.  I had to dust off my neglected Always Artichoke ink.  It's been a long time since arty has gotten any action.  Did I mention that the embossed background was done with the Dynamic Textured Impressions Layered Leaves embossing folder.  Hint:  When embossing with the thick Dynamic Folders remember to use only one cutting pad.

Painted Harvest went pink one month for my customer Thank You cards.  The bottom layer was stamped with Blushing Bride Ink and the top layer was stamped with Berry Burst ink (stamped off for a lighter shade of Berry Burst).  And the center was stamped with Fresh Fig Ink.  So pretty!

 And last, but certainly not least, here's a very basic Painted Harvest Card that we stamped last week at a live event.  The flowers were stamped with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Chocolate Chip Inks.  And the leaves were stamped with Sahara Sand ink.
