Color Throwdown #398

Hello, crafty friends.  Today, I am sharing a fun card I made following the color challenge at Color Throwdown.  Here's the challenge:
Some super fun, and bright summer colors for this weeks challenge.  The colors are stated as: red raspberry, hot pink, lime green and bright yellow.

Here's what I came up with using: Raspberry Ripple, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight Stampin' UP! ink colors.

I started out by white washing a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock with Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight ink refills.  I then heat set it, and flicked (like my professional word?) Raspberry Ripple droplets randomly onto it.  I, then heat set it again.  I was then ready to stamp my images using Basic Black ink.  This is the Falling Flowers stamp set., and the sentiment is from the Love & Affection stamp set.


I then cut three of the largest flowers from the May Flowers Framelits in Raspberry Ripple, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight cardstock and pieced them together.  Next, I added three leaves die cut in Cucumber Crush.  Sequins and Daffodil Delight Enamels finish it off.

The stamp set and framelits can be purchased as a bundle to save 10%!  See page 127 of the annual catalog for more information.


Thanks for stopping by today!  Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday to my daughter!

Hello!  I have a quick post to share today. It's our daughter's birthday today and I am sharing the card I made for her using the Marquee Messages stamp set.  When she was little, her favorite color was green, but now its blue.  So, had to use the new In Color: Dapper Denim and its complimentary color: Soft Sky.

As you can see, I am having fun with the Marquee Messages stamp set! And of course I had to use other new fun stuff on her card- namely the Festive embossing folder (141471), and the Fiesta Time Framelits (141475) which are the cool banner streams and flags at the top of the card.

The number "19" is from the Little Numbers Framelits set which is now retired.  The Marquee Messages stamp set was embossed in Silver embossing powder, and pieced together.  I used  Dimensionals under the fun arrow.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Marquee Messages in Bloom

Hello, crafty friends! Today's card share features the Marquee Messages stamp set dressed in new In Color inks and homemade DSP made using the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set.
Colors are: Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo.  As my stamping friends know, limiting yourself to using 2-3 colors on a card usually results in fabulousness!:)    

The Marquee Messages stamp set is photopolymer so its easy to stamp the words exactly where you want them.  There are 16 images in this stamp set and the set contains phrases perfect for finishing the inside of the card too!  So I would say this stamp set is even more fabulousness- HA!

The Perfectly Wrapped stamp set is also photopolymer and contains 17 images.  It was created for the Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit (142439).  This kit is perfect for all the busy crafters out there.  And who isn't busy these days?! 

You can see a cute gift set I made with this stamp set and the Gift Bag Punch Board (135862) HERE .

    Pop of Pink #2

    Hello.  Here is another CAS card I made using the Pop of Pink Suite.  My objective is to make a gift set of trendy thank you cards using the adorable "thank you" sentiment in this set. :)  Here's card #2:


    For this card, I used the same items as my previous post HERE, but this time I stamped the "thank you" sentiment in Melon Mambo and a few pieces of the striped Melon Mambo Pop of Pink Washi Tape .


    This time I used the Happy Hearts embossing folder on the card base and kept the card as a single sheet of paper even though my instinct was to add another base layer.   


    I will have another CAS card to share tomorrow. Till then, happy stamping!

    Hello.  Today, I am sharing a clean and simple (CAS) card I created using the Pop of Pink Suite which can be found on pages 84-85 of the annual catalog.  Melon Mambo and Basic Black with a pop of gold embossing look awesome together.

    Sweet Sugarplum Rose

    Hello, and happy Tuesday! Today, I am sharing a card I made featuring the Rose Wonder stamp set.  This set has a matching die set, but I have never just stamped and colored the flower so today was the day.  And since we have some new sweet colors, I had to play with them as well.  Here's my card:

    I first stamped the flower image in Versamark ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I also stamped and embossed another leaf section to obtain more foliage.  Next came the fun part- water coloring!  I used Blushing Bride ink and Sweet Sugarplum ink to paint the rose, and Mint Macaron ink for the leaves.  


     

    Other supplies:
    • Softly Falling Texturized Embossing Folder (139672);
    • Thoughtful Banners stamp set and Duet Banner punch Bundle (142330);
    • Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" Ruched Ribbon (141428);
    • Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape (141649);
    • Mint Macaron washi tape (retired hostess item);


    And its party time! Yes, during the month of June, all orders or workshop orders totaling $350 or more are eligible for an additional $35 in FREE MERCHANDISE!

    Lets Celebrate for Sunday Stamps! #128

    Hello, and happy Sunday!  We have a new challenge for you to play along with at Sunday Stamps! It's a sketch challenge:

    And here's what I decided to create:

    Doesn't Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum and Soft Sky look fabulous together?! A great new color combination.  And notice the Sweet Sugarplum washi tape?  It comes from the new Playful Palette collection.  I gravitated right to it because it contains so many of the new In Colors.  And look at the new 3/8" Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon?  LOOve it! 
    I also gravitated to the Balloon Celebration stamp set to make my card.  It is a carry over from the 2016 Occasions Catalog and really is a fabulous set.  There are so many different ways to stamp the balloons.  
    For this card, I stamped the balloons on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Dapper Denim followed by Basic Black "dots".  I then added two more dimensionalized balloons stamped on Dapper Denim cardstock and punched with the Balloon Bouquet punch.  I also stamped some clouds in Soft Sky ink and added stars in Sweet Sugarplum and Basic Black.   I love the Confetti Textured Embossing Folder.  I have used it a million times! Doesn't it look perfect with this stamp set? 

    Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set

    Balloon Bouquet Punch

    Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

    Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape

    Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" (1 cm) Ruched Ribbon

    New In Color Catalog Kick off!

    Today is the big day we all have been waiting for! The day the NEW 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! catalog goes live! Yippee!

    In honor of its release, I am sharing a card I made using all of the new In Colors along with 2 new stamp sets called Thoughtful Banners and Perfectly  Wrapped.
    New In Colors are (from top to bottom): Peekaboo Peach, Flirty  Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim.  Aren't these colors gorgeous?  They are so bright and cheery and work great together!

    To make this card, I first stamped the rectangle solid shaped image from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set in a straight line down the center of a Whisper White card made out of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die set.


    Next, I stamped the small flowers from the the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set randomly using Basic Black ink and all of the new In Colors inks.  The adorable word banners were created with the NEW Duet Banner punch. The Thoughtful Banners stamp set and Duet Banners punch can be purchased as a bundle for a 10% savings! See page 73 of the new Stampin' UP! catalog!

    I love this card! It was so fun to make and is a bright and cheery birthday card for someone special this summer!
