Thinking of You-Honeycomb Style

card idea, stampin up, stampin up demonstrator, thinking of you, butterfly punch, sheltering tree

 

I always want to get the most out of my stamps – anyone else with me on that? For this card, I used one of the Sentiments from the Sheltering Tree stamp set – without using the tree. Sentiments are pretty versatile and cool like that.

  • For the background, I used the Dictionary Background stamp and the Honeycomb Embossing Folder
  • Instead of embossing the panel, I just added ink directly to the Embossing Folder and pressed the card stock between the folder with my fingers – rubbing over the outside of the folder to transfer the ink to the card stock without the embossing finish.
  • The butterfly image was stamped with Papillion Potpourri and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch
  • I wanted a background color that popped against the Coastal Cabana – and I found the perfect background paper for this card in the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. It’s not just for Valentine’s Day after all!
  • Can you guess how I distressed the card front and the banners? I’ll give you two hints: Sahara Sand and a Sponge Dauber (It really is one of my favorite techniques – its so easy!)
  • Linen thread brings a natural texture to the card front

Daffodil Delight Hello

Hello Card, Card Idea, Stampin Up, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Scallop Punch

 

Another Hello Card to brighten someone’s day! Daffodil Delight is such a fun color – bold, but not too bold! It pairs pretty nicely with Smokey Slate, don’t you think?

  • I created the background for this card using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set – be sure to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig if you don’t want to have overlapping images like the ones featured above. (The overlap personally doesn’t bother me on this card – but for others it would drive me nuts. A Stamp-a-ma-jig is definitely a must have for every craft room just in case!)
  • The flowers were created using Scallop Punches…be sure to cut into the scallops to create petals

stampin up, card ideas, hello card, stamping, stampin up demonstrator

  • The flowers were punched out with Whisper White Card Stock and then colored in using sponge daubers with So Saffron and Daffodil Delight ink
  • Linen thread behind the flower image adds some natural texture to the card front
  • The sentiment is distressed using the same sponge daubers that were used to color the flowers – as well as the edges of the card front
  • Complete the flower by adding a little bling to the center with a rhinestone

Flower Hello

Flower Hello Card, Stampin Up, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Card Idea, Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch

Sending Hello Cards to friends and family is a great way to let them know you are thinking of them AND to give them a wonderful surprise in their mailbox! I can’t tell you how often I look through my mail and just throw all of it away. It’s awesome when I actually have something to open and cherish!

  • For the Background, I used the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and the Dictionary background stamp. I was able to get more definition on the Hexagons and “antique” the background using a sponge dauber
  • I used the Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch and the Flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to create the layered flowers.
  • I punched the flowers out with Whisper White Card Stock – then colored them in using sponge daubers with Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White Craft and Sahara Sand ink.
  • The “Hello” sentiment comes from the Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set – I just love that handwriting!

Card Idea, Hello Card, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Dictionary Background Stamp

  • I completed the flowers with a Neutrals Candy Dot right in the middle
  • White Jute Ribbon adds more texture behind the flowers and sentiment, as well as the linen thread tied around the sentiment
  • The card base is made with Strawberry Slush Card Stock and layers with a piece of Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock and Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper

Live the Life You Imagine

Live the Life You Imagine Uplifting Card Stampin Up Cardmaking Stampin Up Demonstrator

 

I’ve had the Typeset Paper for months now… and I finally decided to use some! Using Designer Series Paper is something that I struggle with – I don’t want to cut into the gorgeous paper! Of course, I need to just get over that – it is there to be cut into!

  • The Typeset Designer Series Paper is ultra lightweight – be very careful with it or you might have some unintentional tears

 

lifelifeimagined1

 

The sentiment comes from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set – the first Stamp Set I purchased as a Demonstrator! I have used this set dozens of times and I love how the sentiments are perfect for card making AND Scrapbooking/Project Life’ing.

lifelifeimagined2

 

Remember how I said to be careful with the Typeset paper or you might have an unintentional tear? I only know this because it happened to me! I didn’t want to throw the whole card front away and start over again – so instead I just made a layered banner with Very Vanilla and Basic Black card stock, stapling the layers together, and used a Dimensional to adhere the banner to the card front. Not only did it give me the coverage I needed to hide the tear – it added another element to my design!

Retro Fresh Thanks

Retro Fresh Thank You Card

The papers in the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper are certainly fresh! I love the graphic patterns and bold colors – at one point while making this card I even told my husband that this background pattern would have worked for some Christmas Cards!

  • I used the Banner Framelits to cut out the banner and the basic black matting – with the Magnetic Platform, cutting is a snap!
  • To add a bit more definition to the layers, I distressed the edges with Tuxedo Black ink using a sponge dauber
  • In lieu of using ribbon, I just cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to add some separation to the background paper

  • I used the Card Layout from Monday as an inspiration for this layout. Is it exactly the same? Nope. And that’s okay! Sometimes we just need a starting point – and for me, it was the banner!
