Razzle-Dazzle-Berry Mambo

Razzle Dazzle, Rich Razzleberry Lemonade, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry... are you  hungry yet?!  lol!  I was working with these colors and papers... no wonder I got hungry!  lol!!  jk

Today's card is one from a card class I had so it is pretty simple and quick but has lots of punch via the colors used.  The pungent yellow of the Crushed Curry in the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper and the Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon is a great counterpoint to the intensity of the Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry .

The floral image from the stamp set was stamped onto the Melon Mambo card in the same color ink for a subtle background.  Then the section of Rich Razzleberry was treated with the Scallop Edge Punch before the layer of Razzleberry Lemonade was applied over it.  Two Gold Mini Brads were inserted into 1/4" circles and attached to the upper right side of this layer; the cardstock circles help both ground and emphasize the brads.  The length of Crushed Curry Ribbon had a soft knot tied in the center and was then wrapped around this layer and adhered to the back.

I stamped the oval frame from the Sale-A-Bration Vintage Labels set in Crushed Curry on Whisper White then stamped the wish from Teeny Tiny Wishes (you need this set!) in the center.  This was punched out with the Wide Oval Punch (this punch has been a great addition to our punch "arsenal" this year!).  I lightly sponged some Rich Razzleberry ink onit with a Stampin' Sponge then adhered it to the card.  Viola!  Easy, quick and cheerful!  Ready to send to someone who needs a get well wish!

Thanks for visiting today!  Hope you get a chance to stamp a little love today!

Vintage Vogue Explosion Box Card

An Explosion Box is so cool to make and it's so much fun to see the look on the recipient's face when they open it!  It has been several years since I made one so I was excited that Jann McCollom brought this Make 'n Take to our Stamp Therapy meeting about a week ago.  We all loved it! 

The box/card base is So Saffron, the Designer Paper used is Razzleberry Lemonade and the ribbon is Stitched Rose Red 1 1/4" grosgrain.  The flower on the top is made from Pretty in Pink cardstock punched with the Fancy Flower Punch and the leaves are loops of Old Olive Satin Ribbon. The little banner coming out from underneath the flower has a sentiment on it from the Vintage Vogue set (Occasions Mini Catalog) that says "You raise kindness to an art."

Here are a few more views of the box:

The lid of the box showing the flower center, a So Saffron mini brad:
And finally, the lid removed and the box open:
The inside is stamped with the Vintage Vogue set.  A square of Whisper White is stamped with the Friend stamp from the same set.

What a fun and special card/box to give to a friend!  You can actually put a small gift in the box.  The box size is a 2 3/4" cube.

Stamps:  Vintage Vogue
Ink:  So Saffron and Rose Red Classic, Rose Red Craft
Paper:  Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper; So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White cardstock
Accessories:  Fancy Flower Punch, Clear Embossing Powder, So Saffron Brad, Heat Tool, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Dimensional.  All products from Stampin' Up!

I have no written instructions for this but the beginning size of the base cardstock is 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" and the size of the cardstock for the lid is 5" x 5".  I did Google and found instructions for Explosions Boxes on numerous websites and blogs.

Thanks for visiting today!  Have a great week!

Forest Friends and Picture This Card

Today's card is made for Blogger's Challenge # 144, a sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch our challenge "mom" Lisa gave us to use.  I thought it was a difficult sketch but it could be I just had so many interruptions while working on this that I couldn't get my mojo going for long at a time!!

For my card today, I chose the flower pattern from the Tall Tales Designer Series Paper.  I haven't actually used it before but have always liked it and I like the color scheme of Brilliant Blue, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and So Saffron.  I chose to make the card base of So Saffron and Brilliant Blue for the full layer.  I can't tell you how long it's been since I've used Brilliant Blue but I LOVE it!  I ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to give it some fun texture.

I decided to use a heart shape instead of the half-round, so I stamped the heart image from the Sweetheart set onto a So Saffron dotted piece of the Tall Tales DSP and cut it out with my Paper Snips. 

I cut a strip of the fun flowers from the DSP and layered it onto Rose Red, then tied a grosgrain ribbon toward the right end.  Then I stamped the owl from the Forest Friends set in Chocolate Chip onto yet another pattern of this DSP, a subtle Saffron stripe and punched it out with the 1" circle punch.  This was layered onto the 1 1/4" circle punch of Old Olive and applied to the card with a Dimensional.

I chose to use the right horizontal strip as my greeting piece;  I stamped the greeting from Picture This, the Level 1 Hostess Set in the Occasions Mini, in VersaMark onto Rose Red cardstock, added White Embossing Powder and heated it with the Heat Tool.  This was punched out with the Modern Label Punch
 and adhered with Dimensionals.

Fancy Flower Tag from Two Tag Die

One of the cool dies for the Big Shot in the Stampin' Up! catalog is the Bigz Two Tag Die, new this year.  You get two attractive and useful tags together on this one die:  one with a rounded scallop top and pierced "stitching" and the other, wider with a score line and a slit to tuck it up into.

The tag pictured uses the scallop top tag, even though you can't really see it in the picture.  I wheeled across the bottom in Pretty in Pink Ink and the Very Vintage wheel, then added the Happy Easter from the Well Scripted set (Occasions Mini Catalog) punched with the Large Oval and layered on a Certainly Celery Scalloped Oval.
The flower was made by rolling a strip of tissue wrapping paper with the same Very Vintage wheel in pink ink, folding it into eight layers and punching it with the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch.  A brad was inserted into the center then the layers lifted up individually and "fluffed" with my fingers.  The green leaves beneath the flowers are actually punched from Certainly Celery cardstock with the Five Petal Flower Punch.  Gotta' love all those great and useful punches!  They make great projects and make them go faster!!

A 1/8" hole was punched in the top and a length of the luscious pink Taffeta Ribbon inserted and tied.

This tag would be great on a gift bag or package, or any number of other uses!

In these two pictures you can see close-up details of the tag:

I have a picture of a gift bag with one of these tags on it that I'll find and upload tomorrow!

Thanks for visiting!


3-25-10  Edited to add: Here is are two bags embellished with the Sweet Pea Designer Paper Pack and the tags I posted above.  These were designed by my talented friend and fellow demo, Gayle Enouen.  Aren't they gorgeous?!!  She gave me the one on the right!!  Love it!!

Garden from the Heart with Herbs

Today's card is another one using Garden from the Heart, a lovely set from the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog.  The stamp image of herbs drying on the line is the focal point.

The color scheme is Rich Razzleberry and Barely Banana.  The herbs are stamped in Basic Brown on Whisper White cardstock; soft color is added with Stampin' Write Markers.  I used a Blender Pen with pale Almost Amethyst ink to add a faint shadow around the herbs.  The lower corner was torn off, the edges distressed with the Cutter Kit and the edges sponged with banana ink.

A square of Rich Razzleberry had each corner punched with the Scallop Edge Corner Punch before the image layer was adhered.  A knot of the gorgeous Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon was added to the upper left corner.

In this set is a stamp which fits the Curly Label Punch!  I love it when our stamps and punches work together!  This "label" was stamped in Razzleberry and the bird colored with a Creamy Caramel Marker.  A line of Barely Banana was added with the marker just inside the outline of the label.  I punched it out with the Curly Label Punch and adhered it with a Dimensional.

Rich Razzleberry cardstock is the base; a layer of Barely Banana was run through the Big Shot machine in the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to give these deeply embossed dots!  It's amazing how much texture and dimension the embossing folders give!

On the inside I layered white cardstock and stamped it with the another curly label frame, this one from the Vintage Label set which is free with a $50. purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  Inside it I stamped the "Happy Birthday" that also came with the set.  The garden gloves were stamped in the lower right corner of the card.

Thanks for visiting!  Don't forget that Sale-A-Bration is almost over but there is still time to place your order and reap the benefits of FREE STAMPS!!  March 31st is the last day!!

Garden from the Heart, Two Tags Die Card

Think Spring!!  That's the theme of this week's Blogger's Challenge #143!  Yesterday was the first day of spring, and in Oklahoma we celebrated by ... having a BLIZZARD!!  Yup, howling winds and blowing snow, the whole bit!  It has quit snowing today but it's still cold; tomorrow is supposed to be better, YAY!!

What's more indicative of spring than planting, flowers and butterflies!  I love this new set from the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog Garden from the Heart!  This tag, cut with the Big Shot and the Two Tags Die from Whisper White cardstock, makes a perfect background for the straw hat from the set (stamped in Basic Brown ink).  Using the Aquapainter and Soft Suede ink, I added color to the hat, Regal Rose color to the ribbon and Old Olive to the leaves and stems.  The flowers were colored with the Rose Red Stampin' Write Marker.

At the scalloped end of the tag, I added a punched flower of Regal Rose and Rose Red centered with a So Saffron Brad.  A half-flower of Old Olive is tucked underneath for some leaves.

The card base is Regal Rose, topped with a layer of Sahara Sand cardstock run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and a bottom edge of Whisper White treated with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch.  I love how that punch adds such a crispness to a design!  A 1-1/8" vertical strip of Sahara Sand Designer Paper from the hostess Paper Pack III (free with a $150. or more order) covered by a strip of Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon was added to the left side before the tag was layered on top.  The So Saffron butterflies were cut with the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die which cuts and embosses all at the same time!  Love that!!

Our schools here had Spring Break this past week and we had pretty weather punctuated by the blizzard on Saturday!  Crazy!  I had company this week so I'm a little behind on my posting!  Thanks for visiting again!

Fancy Flower, With All My Heart, BC 142

Here's another clean and simple card made with the new Fancy Flower Punch, With All My Heart and Well Scripted stamp sets.  I posted a similar one a few weeks ago; this is one I used for my last workshop.  I love the soft spring-y colors of pinks, yellows and greens.  Can't wait for the spring flowers to bloom here in Oklahoma!

The card base is Pretty in Pink with layers underneath the flower of Regal Rose, Whisper White and Certainly Celery.  The open side of the card was treated with the new Pinking Hearts Border Punch.  (I just {love} the new punches Stampin' Up! has for us in the Occasions Mini Catalog!! ).  On the inside edge, I placed a 1/2" strip of one of the patterns from the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper.  When the card is closed, it gives a colorful edge to the card.  It's amazing how a little touch of the DSP can add so much to a project!

The Barely Banana flower was first stamped with the same color ink and then punched out with the Fancy Flower Punch.  I snipped between the petals a bit then curled them with my bone folder  and shaped them with my fingers.  For the center I added a Regal Rose flower centered with a small Pretty in Pink flower, both punched with the Boho Blossoms Punch.  I also snipped between their petals and shaped them with my fingernails.  (Those acrylic nails should be useful for something, lol!)  You can't see it in the picture so much, but the inner blossoms also curl up some and give nice dimension.  A gold Mini Brad attaches them together.

The sentiment was stamped in Old Olive ink with the "Happy Birthday" from the Well Scripted stamp set. 

I'm posting this card for this past week's Blogger's Challenge which was Birthday.  You can see a list of the other talented BC gals here to see what they've posted for the challenge.

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a good Monday!!

Easter Chocolate Bunny!

That little chocolate bunny you used to find in your Easter basket is now a rubber stamp!  How fun is that?!  It isn't part of a set but a single stamp and inexpensive to boot!  The Chocolate Bunny stamp is found in the Occasions Mini Catalog with the "a la carte" stamps on the very last page, 43. You NEED this stamp...I did!  lol!

Laura Lipe and I did a one-on-one Easter/Spring swap.  This is Laura's adorable card; she used the Chocolate Bunny stamp on Close to Cocoa in Chocolate Chip ink then cut it out and adhered to  Whisper White; this was then layered on Old Olive. 

Laura used the Cottage Wall Designer Paper layered on Old Olive on two panels, making an interesting layout.  The card base is Orchid Opulence cardstock.

The "Happy Easter" is from the beautiful Well Scripted stamp set (eight stamps) from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and punched out with the Designer Label PunchRich Razzleberry punched with the Curly Label Punch is layered behind the sentiment for depth and contrast.

Thanks, Laura, for a fun swap!!  You've inspired me to get my Chocolate Bunny stamp out and use it some more.  It is just so yummy!  lol!!

You can find the card I sent to Laura here and her blog here.

Thanks for visiting today!  Have a great weekend!

Close as a Memory

Sympathy cards are not what we would prefer to have the occasion to send, but when you need one, it's nice to have a good stamp set to use to make it.  Close As A Memory is just such a set.  A set of four images with three sentiments accompanying the watercolor-style floral image comprise this set.

I've actually made two versions of this card with just a couple of differences.  A soft color scheme of Pale Plus and Perfect Plum conveys a sense of serenity and warmth on both.  The flower images were colored with Stampin' Write Markers in Perfect Plum and Old Olive; the texture of the stamp gives the variance in how the colors look. 

For the first card, the greeting was stamped at the bottom in Elegant Eggplant.  I used Whisper White cardstock for this layer but one could also use Watercolor Paper and mist it lightly which would give a lovely watercolored appearance to the flowers.  The corners were punched with the Ticket Corner Punch and a length of Old Olive Mistletoe Ribbon (from the Holiday Mini, not currently available, but perfect for this card) was softly knotted in the center and wrapped around.

The Pale Plum cardstock was run through the Big Shot with the Finial Press Embossing Folder to give it this wonderful dimension!  The corners were treated with the Ticket Corner Punch and then the layer was adhered to the Perfect Plum card to complete it.

The second card starts out the same way but the sentiment is separate.  A saying from the Thoughts and Prayers set was stamped on Whisper White in Elegant Eggplant then punched out with the Scallop Oval punch and the edges lightly sponged with Perfect Plum Ink. 

Another difference on this second card is the background which was stamped with the Bella Toile background stamp in the same color as the cardstock, Pale Plum, for a subtle look ( you may need to click on the picture for a closer view to see it although it is easily visible IRl.)

Both of these cards convey the message with softness and an understated loveliness.  I'm so glad I have this set when I need it; of course, the flowers can be used for many other types of card for happier occasions too!

The insides of both cards are stamped with the verses that come in the set, and they are very nice and appropriate.

The top card was one of the cards I designed for a recent card class for sympathy, get well and thinking of you cards, the kind we seem to always need to have on hand.

Thanks for visiting today!  I appreciate your time and any comments you may leave. {smiles}

Medallion in Suede and Blush

What a beautiful image this Medallion stamp gives!  It's so elegant and yet can work with a number of artistic styles. 

Today's card uses it in more of a vintage way with the distressed background stamp called Sanded first stamped in Creamy Caramel ink onto the Blush Blossom cardstock for a soft background.  The Medallion was then stamped in Soft Suede ink over the this.  The corners were punched with the Ticket Corner Punch and some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint was applied lightly with a Sponge Dauber to give it some shimmer and more depth.  I had earlier sponged a Chocolate Chip 5/16" Jumbo Brad with the Champagne Mist and allowed it to dry;  I inserted this into the center of the medallion before layering it onto the Soft Suede card.

The sentiment is from the Thoughts and Prayers set; it is stamped in Soft Suede onto  Blush Blossom cardstock then punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch and layered onto Soft Suede which was punched with the Wide Oval Punch.  This was adhered to the card with Dimensionals.  The inside was stamped with a saying from the same set.

This is a very lovely and muted card, very appropriate to convey your thoughts for occasion.  Blush Blossom and Soft Suede make quite a pleasing combination together; I'll use this combination again!  This was one of the cards I designed for a recent class making sympathy, get well and thinking of you cards.

Thanks for visiting today!  I've been working on our taxes and am about finished so I can hopefully get back to more stamping soon!

Inspired by Nature, two cards

Today's "Thinking of You" card is another one I designed for a card class last week.  I was looking for some soothing colors and design for someone who needs kind thoughts because of stress in their life.  What is more soothing that the soft colors of nature, grass, and animals, in this case, butterflies?  I pulled out another great set that I hadn't used in awhile:  Inspired by Nature.

Soft colors of nature, Bashful Blue accented with Old Olive, form the color scheme here.  The card base is Old Olive with a full overlay of Bashful Blue that has been stamped twice in Old Olive with the tall grass stamp.  This was wrapped by a sash of Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon then adhered to the base green card. 

The greeting was stamped in Old Olive on Whisper White, punched with the Small Oval Punch then layered onto Old Olive that was punched with the Large Oval Punch Dimensionals were used to adhere this to a Barely Banana Scallop Oval punch out which is then adhered to the ribbon. 

The butterflies were embossed and cut all in one operation by using the Beautiful Wings Embosslet and the Big Shot.  It actually cuts out three other butterflies at the same time also!  I used a Sponge Dauber to add some color to the raised portion of the butterflies then adhered them to the card front.  After stamping a saying on the inside, we were done!  The ladies seemed to like this card a lot, and it was quite easy to make.

Tip:  When inking a large stamp, lay it rubber-side up on the table then use the ink pad to apply the ink to it.  Then carefully place your cardstock to be stamped over the inked rubber and rub all over the card with your fingers to transfer the ink to the card.  You can also add a half-sheet of copy paper over the cardstock before rubbing, particularly if the cardstock is not as large as the inked stamp, to prevent getting ink on your fingers.  You can also use a clean rubber brayer instead of your fingers, especially if you're doing several.  Carefully lift off the stamped card and you're done!

This Congratulations card also uses the Inspired by Nature set but instead of the grass it uses the large coneflower stamp.  The color combination is a little more dramatic, using Always Artichoke, Rose Red, Baja Breeze (one of last year's In Colors) and a touch of Whisper White.

First the Always Artichoke cardstock was stamped in Artichoke ink with the tall grass stamp used on the previous card.  Then a square of Always Artichoke DSP from one of the DSP 6 x 6" packs was stamped with the large flower stamp in VersaMark then embossed with White Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool.  This was layered onto Baja Breeze and Rose Red cardstock and a Rose Red brad applied to the upper left corner.

I wanted to add a hint of soft color to the white images so I used my Stampin' Pastel Chalks and applied them with the little sponge applicators that come with it.  I was very pleased with the result of my little experiment!  : )

Next I wrapped a double layer of ribbon, Baja Breeze over Rose Red Stitched Grosgrain, around this layer and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the Congrats! stamp in Always Artichoke onto Baja Breeze cardstock, punched it out with the 1" Square Punch then layered that onto a Whisper White Scallop Square Punch-out then onto a Rose Red square.  This was placed on the lower left of the image layer.  Three more Rose Red Brads were added to the lower right to balance the design and complete the card.

TIP:   To emphasize the Mini Brads, add a 1/4" circle of cardstock beneath them!

TIP:  Even though the Baja Breeze color is no longer available in the US and Canada, one could easily substitute Bashful Blue.  I did this card a while back and just realized today that I had never posted it on my blog.  I was waiting for some reason, which is now forgotten, lol!

I hope you enjoyed these two versions using the Inspired by Nature set.  It has lots of possibilities, plus some nice words that also come in the set.  I have several other projects on my blog using this set; just enter "Inspired by Nature" in the search box at the top left of this page.

 Thanks for coming by!  I really appreciate your visit, and your comments or questions!  Hope you get to stamp this weekend!

Bermuda Bay Upsy Daisy

Wow, I hadn't used my Upsy Daisy in a while; it's such a great stamp set!  I'm thinking (wishing) for warmer weather and these flowers really appealed to me, PLUS I love how this print from the Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper pack reflects the daisy look!! 

I designed this card for a card class I did last week using the color scheme of Bermuda Bay, Barely Banana and Sahara Sand.  The daisy design was stamped on Sahara Sand then layered on Bermuda Bay and Barely Banana.  A strip of the DSP was layered onto the Bermuda Bay card and then the daisy layers added on top.

The sentiment from Whimsical Words (I got FREE as a Sale-A-Bration bonus for a $50. purchase) "You're never more than a Thought away" was stamped on sand with Bermuda then punched out with the Curly Label Punch.  This was then layered on additional punch-outs of banana and Not Quite Navy and added to the upper right-hand corner.  A single 5/16" Silver Jumbo Brad was the final touch!

Stamps:  Upsy Daisy,  Whimsical Words
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Not Quite Navy
Paper:  Thoroughly Modern DSP; Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand, Barely Banana, Not Quite Navy
Accessories:  Curly Label Punch, 5/16" Silver Jumbo Brad

This was a simple yet cheerful card to convey your thoughtful message to a friend or loved one!  The banana color was the perfect counterpoint to brighten up the Bermuda Bay too!


Your comments make my day! 

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!

Sweet Pea Paper & Felt Card

Here's another project with the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  This time it's a card using the paper for the background and the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt embellishments.  So ever-lovin' cute together!  And it's quick and no-stress because the products are already coordinated for you!

I used Sage Shadow cardstock for the card because it coordinated well with the teal in the Designer Paper.  Rose Red cardstock is layered over that then the Sweet Pea DSP.  I simply selected three matching or similar Sweet Pea Stitched Felt items and added them to the front of the card with Mini Glue Dots. 

The sentiment is stamped with Thinking of You from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, punched out and layered on a Modern Label Punch then adhered at the top.  A strip of Pumpkin Pie cardstock was treated with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch and tucked under the DSP then a band of Sage Shadow 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon wrapped around and a small knot added with a Mini Glue Dot to complete the card.

Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Old Olive
Paper:  Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack; Sage Shadow, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White cardstocks
Accessories:  Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Sweet Pea Stitched Felt, Sage Shadow 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Mini Glue Dots.

I hope you'll try these Sweet Pea stitched embellishments and the new Designer Paper!   They are great fun to play with and add new dimension to your projects!

Thanks for visiting!  Hope to see you soon!


On Board Bird Book

Three On Board (chipboard) Books appear for the first time in the current 2010 Occasions Mini CatalogHeart, Scallop Circle and Bird Book.  The Heart and Scallop Circle are about 6" in diameter and the bird book is 8 1/4" x 3 3/8" which makes them a great size for a mini album, keepsake or altering.  They appear on pg. 34 of the mini catalog and are only $4.95 for a set of eight with a ball chain included!  What a great buy!  And you can use them all together for a mini scrapbook, or use them singly for other purposes such as banners, wreaths, home decor, chair hangers for teas or luncheons and no telling what YOUR creativity can come up with.

Today I've used the bird chipboard to make a door knob hanger.  First I covered it with the beautiful pink with butterflies paper from the Sweet Pea Designer Paper Pack using my Stampin' Up! Glue Stick; then I sanded the edges.  A length of luscious silky Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon runs through the pre-punched hole and ties to form a hanger for a door, shelf or wall.

Several of the delightful Sweet Pea Stitched Felt embellishments encircle the bird's neck and a couple of extra butterflies die cut from Barely Banana cardstock with the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit add to the butterfly images of the designer paper.  There, done!  And easy to boot!

Paper:  Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Pack  (2010 Occasions Mini Catalog); Barely Banana cardstock
Accessories:  Glue Stick, Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Sweet Pea Stitched Felt, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Big Shot, Mini Glue Dots

I hope you'll try some of the great chipboard that Stampin' Up! carries; it is really fun and easy to use and make some
