Thougthful Blooms, Under My Umbrella!

Howdy!

Wow, I just realized that it has been too long since I have posted! Jeepers! No excuses to offer…just caught up in my teaching life and time got away from me. Now that I have more time and no teaching outside the house..I’m back!

For Hostess Club this month I created some simple cards with the Small Blooms Punch (a Sale-A-Bration item to earn) and Under My Umbrella stamp set. I also used the Pleased as Punch DSP! Fun cards. I have 1 to share with you now.

UNDER MY UMBRELLA BUNDLE (ENGLISH) PLEASED AS PUNCH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER SMALL BLOOM PUNCH

I saw this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! and immediately thought of umbrellas…

but that didn’t pan out the way I thought it would and then this one came to mind. I love how it turned out!

1585183142789.jpg

The flowers and the umbrella were punched from the Pleased as Punch DSP! Easy-peasy! The sentiment is from the Under My Umbrella stamp set. I hooked the umbrella under a flower petal and love how it turned out so cute! During these crazy, surreal times, I’ll be sending these out and many others. Everyone needs to feel loved and safe right now! Card makers can do their part in helping!

So, that is all I have for now. More to come! Keep crafting and breathing! This too shall pass…and I believe we will all come out on the other side better for it!

Belated Thanks!

Howdy!

Have you ever gotten sidetracked and forgotten to send Thank Yous to people you know you really should have? Yes, me too! Even as a card maker, I sometimes don’t get the cards out that I should! Well, today I got super motivated to make the Thank You cards for the baseball sponsors…yeah, I know…baseball regular season ended a month ago! Shame on me! I have had the sponsor team pictures sitting in my Creation Studio for awhile, then I bought the frames, then just needed to make the cards…and then got sidetracked with life.

I am taking responsibility for my tardiness, though…and made my first Belated Thank You cards! I used the team colors for each card and a simple sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!

This one was great for using some of my old baseball stamps…yeah, sorry, these stamps are long since retired…they are from before clear and photopolymer stamps were evenaround and are still on wood! They are Stampin’ Up! though!

Here are my cards…

1563472494452.jpg

I used Aqua Painters to make the swishy water color bottoms of the cards. I like the subtleness of it! I used the two main colors of the teams for the thanks and the swish. Gray is obviously a common color theme for our teams. They all wear gray pants. I like the colorful words vs the words being in gray and the swish being in color.

I know…lots of white for this girl! And no distressing the edges…Wait! What? Yes, no distressing! I like them! What do you think? Feel free to leave me a comment about them! I love comments!

Below I will list the supplies and how I used them. That’s it for today! Off to the mountains for some camping and fishing! WooHoo! See you next week!

Around the Corner w/ Tropical Chic

Howdy, Everyone!

Wow! It’s summer vacation! Yay! However, this is not my usual kind of summer because I got a new teaching job! I started teaching English to Chinese children online. It is lots of fun! I think of it as being a host of my own children’s show! It is really boosting the creative side of my brain! Which means you’ll probably be seeing more posts on here…not a bad thing, right?! That’s the best kind of summer!

I whipped this card up faster than I think I have ever done! Creative juices have been flowing! Love these fun bright colors!

Fusion was the inspiration for the colors…

And here is my card…I did a combination of the colors from the VW and the sketch.

I started with a card base in Daffodil Delight. Created a Whisper White rectangle with the Stitched dies. The stamp set is Tropical Chic with the matching dies for my main focal images. The flowers are in Mango Melody and Melon Mambo while the leaves are in Bermuda Bay.

Then I used the ‘Hello There’ sentiment from the Around the Corner stamp set. I think this might be the first time using both of these sets. Glad they carried over into the new Annual catalog!

I’m truly loving the feeling these bright summer colors give me!! We’re still waiting on summer weather here in Montana! Lots of rain and cool days. Definitely not like in Arizona, where it’s triple digits! Don’t really miss that, just would like some days warmer than 50-60s! 😁

That’s all for today…I’ll be back sooner than usual! I have some graduation cards to share!

Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

GSF – The Neutrals

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy!

It’s the first Friday of the month, so that means the amazing Demos of the Global Stamping Friends are having another hop! This month we are showcasing The Neutrals.

What are the Neutrals you ask? The Neutrals are, in order of appearance, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, and Soft Suede.

neutrals assorted ink pads

These are some very useful colors and most can be used in combination with any of the other color families that Stampin’ Up! has to offer! 

The stamp set I used is Geared Up Garage. Yes! I really do love this stamp set and framelits…A LOT! If you have any doubts, or need other ideas on how to use it, you can check out the other posts here, here, here, and here! 😉 It’s just a perfect set for the guys in my life! 

Here is my newest card creation:

1554017473958.jpg

Then on the inside, it looks like this. The top flap of the card was trimmed off a bit so that the smudge and navy line were part of the inside, too.

The materials used for this card are:

 

Feel free to shop in my store to get your hands on this amazing stamp set and framelit dies HERE or by clicking on the blue words in the list above! Don’t forget the DSP while you are at it! I sure trust this set makes it into the new Annual Catalog! We will find out soon! I’m not ready to stop using it! 😉

That is all I have for you today. I trust you enjoyed another creation from one of my all time favorite Occasions Catalog stamp sets! Now let’s hop on over to Tricia Butts blog and see what she created with The Neutrals!

Sketch + Colors = Mom?

Howdy!

Was on a good creative roll this weekend and wanted to get the cards blogged before the challenges run out…seems to happen a bit to me lately!

So, here is the color combo from Fab Friday and the sketch from Sketch Saturday. They were some great inspiration for this card!

 

 

And here is my creation using these 2 wonderful inspirations!
1553993309064.jpg
I used Wink of Stella on the wreath and the bow to give it a little more pizzazz…who doesn’t love a little sparkle, right? Here is a closer look…
Over all, I love the bright springy colors on this card! I am sure my Mother-in-Law will too!

Happy Tails are Meant to Be!

Howdy!

How are you all today?! I am on my first day of Spring Break and happy for it! What better way to start it than telling you about this cute card I came up with to enter into the Sketch Saturday Challenge? I have fun with sketches and this one turned out cute!

Here is the sketch:

I figured I would change it up a bit and instead of going with circles, I went with a heart and puppy dog! Here is mine:

1553208383820.jpg

And, since I am into different ways of folding cards lately…I went with a new fun one that I learned…it’s a double door kind of fold. First card I made I had the heart straight up, half on one side, half on the other. Then at my card class this week, Crystal said she was going wonky and I really liked that idea…so I went with a wonky heart too! I like this one better!

Materials used for this card are:

Here are 2 pictures of how it looks when you open it:

I left the inside blank so that I can write whatever to the person who gets the card. I may choose to put Very Vanilla cardstock inside to make writing easier because the inside is textured as well. Oh…when you use the paw and bone to stamp all over the front…stamp before you emboss…it’s easier! Just saying because I forgot to do it that way. 😉

Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Stella Says Sketch! Christmas?

Howdy!

Wow! TGIF! It’s been a long week with subbing while fighting off a cold, but I made it through the week and those 2nd graders were a dream class! Amazing! So very sweet and considerate! I’ll miss them, but am so ready for the weekend…and a 3 day one at that! WooHoo!! Thank you, MLK Jr! 😉

I have this fun card to share with you tonight…based off a sketch from Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, who were celebrating their 9th Birthday this whole week! Fun! Been too sick/busy subbing to join in the celebration, but I did get this one done last weekend before I got sick!

Their Stella Says Sketch Challenge was this:

Isn’t it cute?! When I saw that stripe pattern, the Dashing Along DSP popped right into my head and I knew I had to make a Christmas card! Yes, I did say Christmas card and I know that the holiday is over, but like I have said before…I am making them all year long so that I don’t have the crush and cram come Nov/Dec. I plan on having my whole Christmas card stash made before the end of October so that I can play with the new Holiday stuff without the stress of needing to make my own cards for sending! Keep coming back to see how I do! I’ll see about figuring out how to keep a count of them on the blog sidewall, if I can…stay tuned!

Here is my card for this challenge! Funny how I have had that Santa Stache stamp set for about 5 years and this past season is when I finally get around to using it and now I can’t stop! LoL

1547517743749.jpg

Didn’t this turn out so cute?! I love it! It could easily be a way to use up smaller pieces of patterned papers and be done on a note card too! Hmmm…I’ll need to keep that in mind!

Supplies I used are:

Psst, I haven’t looked because I have them…but retired stuff might be found on ebay or fb yard sale site…it’s worth a look if you really want to find them. I’m keeping mine since I fell in love with it so much this past season.

Time for bed…haven’t kicked this cold completely, so rest is still needed! Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

A Fairy Celebration

Howdy!

I’m having a lovely time subbing in that 2nd grade classroom, even with this cold. They are so sweet and behaving so wonderfully! It makes it so much easier!

In the interest of time, so that I can go crawl into bed and get a good night’s sleep to face another day of 2nd graders, I will make this fairly brief. If you have any questions about what or how I did something, please feel free to leave a comment below!

I started with a sketch from Sketch Saturday that looked like this:

Then it turned into this:

1547435198207.jpg

I actually used a new technique that I hadn’t done on a card before…I used black embossing powder to outline my stamped image and then colored it using Stampin’ Blends. I am not very good at coloring with them, but I keep giving it a whirl. I’m liking how this card turned out!

Here is my supply list:

Lastly, some Wink of Stella on her pretty wings to make them shimmer as a fairy’s wings should. Not easy to photograph, but I think you can see it well enough in this picture.

1547435291224.jpg

Inside I kept it simple, yet magical…

1547435342046.jpg

I like the idea of using the black embossing powder to help me color with the Stampin’ Blends. It looks cool, too! So, what do you think?

Time for me to sleep and heal, heal, heal! This cold needs to go away as I have plenty of ideas of what I would rather be doing! 😉

Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Tricky card = Cool Card!

Howdy!

Yep, that is what I usually use in person vs. the “Hello, Hello” I have been using…so I’m going to use it here! It’s me…from AZ! (that’s where I grew up)

I started this tricky card with this sketch from CAS(E)this Sketch:

Then I looked over at Fab Friday and saw this awesome color challenge:

When I saw that cool sketch I thought strips of paper would be neat! Then, on the Fab Friday page I saw that Brian King had pieced paper strips in a circle with some of the colors and I thought a paper piecing strip would be good and easy. Not! The paper piecing was easy enough, it was figuring out how to get the strips onto the card without messing it all up that was tough. 🙂

Thank goodness for the Sizzix adhesive multipurpose sheets! Although, once I got the strips on there…how to transfer them became an issue. So, very carefully, I peeled off the backing and prayed they all stayed together while I flipped them over and put them on the card front. They did, shew!

And, viola! My card…

I used the Tranquil Tide ink for the “You are” and Highland Heather for “amazing” sentiment parts. They came from the Amazing Life stamp set. (and, no, I did not realize I used the same sentiment as Brian did until I was doing all the links…great minds and all that 🙂 ) The card front is backed on to Highland Heather cardstock. Since purple and green is my favorite color combination right now, I wanted to use it the most. Pear Pizzazz is the card front. Then Tranquil Tide, Mint Macaron, and Lemon Lime Twist fill in the other colors.

Here is the inside of the card:

Keeping it simple! The sentiment and flower also came from the Amazing Life stamp set. What do you think? Got any tips to make it easier? I’m all ears!

And so, after subbing all day and almost losing my voice because of this cold, it is time to hit the hay for this girl! G’nite!

Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Blessings, June

Meant To Be

Hello, Hello!

I have been a card making fool the past few days! Time to get them all blogged and entered into their respective challenges! Then I need sleep! My scratchy throat is a warning that I haven’t slept as much as I should…and I substitute all week in a 2nd grade classroom, so sleep is a priority this week!

It’s now time for another sketch from CAS Colours &Sketches! Here is the sketch:

For this sketch, I knew I wanted to use the Meant To Be stamp set that is in the Occasions Catalog, along with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits! What an amazing set! I have used a few times already! It’s bundled and that means it’s 10% off! Gotta love it and have it! Click on the picture and it will take you right to the bundle! Or you can click on anything in blue and it will take you right to that item as well! Easy-peasy!

Meant To Be Cling Bundle

After the stamp set, I needed to figure out the colors. I chose Lovely Lipstick, a current In Color 2018-2020, Whisper White, and Powder Pink, also an In Color 2017-2019.

Here’s my card and then an explanation of how it came together…

I used the Lovely  Lipstick cardstock for the card base, stamped hearts, and cloud of hearts using a framelit. I used Whisper White cardstock for my front layer and the smaller rectangle. Then Powder Pink cardstock for the frame of the small rectangle. Those Rectangle Stitched Framelits are really versatile!

I also used Tuxedo Black ink for the sentiment, which is actually from the Part of My Story stamp set out of the Sale-A-Bration brochure and is FREE with an order of $50 or more. Gotta Love FREE! Part Of My Story Cling Stamp Set

Overall, I am happy with this card and really like the sketch! If I had more time tonight, I would run down to the Creation Cave (new name for my craft space) and make one of these in a Christmas card since I have vowed to make Christmas cards all year long instead of Nov/Dec crush time! Alas, it is almost bedtime and I have full days of subbing all week…maybe next sketch!

That’s it for today! Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Blessings, June
