Spirited Snowmen by Stampin' Up!

20180924_182511

Such a HAPPY fellow because he is surrounded by HAPPY COLORS of Real Red and Granny Apple Green! This is an easy format: simply cut 1" off the right front edge of your basic card. That piece becomes the banner by tucking 1" under the inside Whisper White layer and folding back over the front! PRESTO!

This arrow shows where the 1" banner tab is tucked under the inside white layer.

Blends were used to color the Spirited Snowman #148072. Time to start those Christmas cards!

All is Bright Designer Series Paper

20180820_152519

Christmas is coming FAST!! Here is a quick, inexpensive little gift idea. These are composition books covered with the BEAUTIFUL "All is Bright" Designer Series Paper #147892.

20180819_184846

I placed Tear & Tape #138995 on all edges of the book. I avoided the fabric spine because it flexes when the book opens. Next I placed a straight edge of the designer paper right along the fabric spine, smooth the paper, opened the cover and cut away the excess designer paper. 

20180820_152411

This paper is colorful and playful! This book would make a great Christmas Shopping List or Teacher gift!

20180820_152424

This paper is from the same package, but has an elegant feel.

Try covering any size book that suits your needs. It's easy!!

Baby Shower Challenge

20180913_155318

Grey and White isn't very exciting. That was my challenge when I offered to help my working daughter with a Baby Shower she is hosting soon. The shower is for TWINS - a boy and a girl. Well, I decided to add lots of texture, shine and glimmer! These are "Table Tents," which are the same on both sides.

20180913_155430

By adding a "W" of cardstock inside, I insured the tents would not collapse.

20180913_155453

The cute little critters are from A WILD THING Stamp Set #144344. The Teeny Tiny bows are from the FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES #147922 and cut six bows at once.20180913_155721

This TWINS Banner will hang on a white tablecloth on the food table. 20180913_155828

 Texture, shine, glimmer!!

20180910_163419

Mini canning jars with cute critters and vellum "grass" are accents for the food table.

20180910_163920

I attached the critters to floral wire and added a die cut tree from the same FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES. So how did I do with a challenge of grey and white?? Your stamps are so versatile so use them beyond greeting cards! 

 


Enjoy Life Stamp Set

20180918_110621

I enjoy creating Sunset/Sunrise cards! "Enjoy Life" Stamp Set #148190 is a lovely silhouette stamp set to use with this FUN technique.

20180918_100214

Here is my process which allows me to reproduce the same card multiple times:

    *Punch or die cut a generous shape in the center of a quarter sheet of scrap cardstock.

    *Lay this template on your cardstock and hold in place. (I just use my fingers.)

    *Using a Sponge Dauber #133773 pounce on an ink pad to collect color, then scrub ink into the opening of the template, using a horizontal motion going beyond the edges of the template.  Blend one color into the next if desired.

    *Mark your colors for use at a later time and keep in the template in your stamp case.

    *Stamp a silhouette in black ink within the window before removing the template.

20180918_110644

This is a lovely, thoughtful sentiment! Try sponging a Sunrise/Sunset!

Buffalo Check

20180913_160019

Color makes all the difference!! I'm playing with all the Buffalo Check samples I recently made and posted. LOVE the versatility of the Buffalo Check Background Stamp #147797!!

20180913_160034

Checks stamped in NEW Mango Melody ink give a BRIGHT, CRISP feel. It's happy and youthful. This sweet little lion is from A Little Wild Stamp Set #144344.

20180913_160048

Cherry Cobbler and NEW Shaded Spruce inks create a wonderful CLASSIC, traditional Christmas feeling. Notice I added added lines within the checks with Shaded Spruce BLENDS marker! Sure changes the look. This adorable little tree is from Timeless Tidings Stamp Set #148936 20180913_160102

Lastly, Canjun Craze ink feels like chilly autumn and flannel shirts. I added TWO lines within the checks using Old Olive and Daffodil BLENDS markers. The sentiment is from Labels to Love Stamp Set #144967.

From Woodsman to Sweet Baby, BUFFALO CHECK background stamp #147797 has you covered!

20180906_105225

The Stamparatus Positioning Tools lets you print perfect checks. If you don't have that tool yet, this is my preferred printing method for large background stamps: lay the stamp rubber UP, ink up the stamp well, lay cardstock on top. Place a large piece of scrap paper on top and RUB thoroughly with your hand both horizontally and verically. You see my scrap paper on the right. Lift the cardstock straight up.

20180906_111356

The dark colored cardstock does not grab the ink as well as Whisper White and Very Vanilla. But this looks like FANNEL to me, perfect for masculine, outdoorsy cards! Black ink on Soft Suede Cardstock. Black ink on Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.

20180906_111248

The soft colors on Whisper White are Balmy Blue, Powder Pink and Sea Form. They remind me of Spring, Easter and BABIES!

20180906_111423

Crisp, bright Mango Melody and Real Red look like PICNICS and summer!

20180906_100913

CHANGE your check to a PLAID!! Simply draw consistent straight lines - SO EASY. I love BLENDS for this because the color goes on even. Start your lines OFF the edge of the cardstock. This is Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White Cardstock with Old Olive and Daffodil Blends. Definitely AUTUMN!
