Stampin' Up! Grown With Love friend card

Another color challenge!  This one featuring the Stampin’ Up! Grown With Love friend card.  As much as I love gardens I had yet to use this wonderful and fun set!  Love the ” little red wagon” and the fall colors!  This weeks color challenge colors were Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Crushed curry, Daffodil Delight, and White.

Remember!  You can save 10% by purchasing the Grown with Love Bundle! Start with an A2 card base of thick white cardstock cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The second layer is Cajun Craze cardstock cut at 5″ x 3 3/4″.  Finally the top white embossed layer is cut at  4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″.  This layer is embossed using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured embossing folder.   The DSP is cut at 1.5″ x 4 7/8″.  Add the ribbon to finish off the Stampin’ Up! Grown With Love friend card.

I used Stampin’ Up! markers to color directly to the stamp for the vegetables.  Huff  🙂 Stamp 🙂  Remember to make your envelope pretty too!

Stampin' Up! Bike Ride friend card

Here’s a fun fall Stampin’ Up! Bike Ride friend card or just for someone you love!  There are so many die cuts that come with this set it makes me want to create more and more!

I love that the cobblestones in the  set are an impression, not a die cut.  These types of “framelits” have added a nice versatility to our most recent sets!  For this card I did an impression along the bottom and a few scattered around.  However, I thought ” wouldn’t a winding path through trees be fun??

Since this card was mostly assembling the diecuts it is really uncomplicated.  Just start with an A2 card base in Old Olive cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The white stamped layer is 5.25″ x 4″.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin’ Up! Sharing Sweet Thoughts

Stampin' Up! Sharing Sweet Thoughts

Stampin’ Up! Sharing Sweet Thoughts is the perfect name for this stamp set and for creating this sweet card. This was another color challenge, and boy was this one challenging!

This sweet card is really quick and easy, the hardest part is die cutting the squares, and if you happen to have an old 1 3/8″ square punch laying around just use that.  However, I do have to say the layering squares framelits is a must have for your craft stash!

Start with an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold in half at 5.5″. Add a whisper White cardstock layer cut at 5.25″ x 4″, and a second Night of Navy cardstock layer cut at 5″ x 3.75″.  Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, the branches in Old Olive ink, and the butterflies and ladybug in Momento Black.  Color using the Many Marvelous Markers by Stampin up!

This Stampin’ Up! Artistically Asian Sponged card was so fun! I love the look of sponging, and using the Timeless Textures stamp is a perfect “water look” for the base of this card . This weeks color challenge used Pacific Point, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Real Red and Basic Black.

I started with an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  The Real Red layer is 5.25″ x 4″.  And the White sponged layer is 4 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  The video shows the details on how to do the stamping off and the sponging technique.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin'Up!  Custom Inked ribbon and background

This Stampin’Up!  Custom Inked ribbon and background was essentially created by accident.  My friend reminded me of the technique of dying ribbon to match cardstock, and so at a retreat she showed me an easy way to do it.  This also included using the leftover ink to color your cardstock, creating your own custom background…lol…

We simply tapped a pad of tempting turquoise on a silicone sheet and used a few spritzes of water to preferred color intensity.  You can go for a more mottled look or solid color depending on preference.  After we colored the white ribbon and dried it with a heat gun I blotted & ran a piece of white card stock through the leftover ink creating a custom background… Yay!!
