GSF – Stamper’s Choice

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy!

Can you believe it is already the 2nd month of the new year?! Wowza! It’s also that time again…the first Friday of the month and a Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! WooHoo!! It is so fun to hop with these amazing demonstrators from around the globe! They are so inspirational!

This month the theme is Stamper’s Choice…so I chose to go with 2 #simplestamping cards! It seemed like the smartest choice since my craftroom is still a bit of a mess from the mini makeover. Stay tuned for more pictures on that this weekend!

I chose a stamp set from the Occasions Catalog called Meant To Be. I LOVE it! So versatile…we just have to love the versatility that Stampin’ Up! brings to their stamp sets!

Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set

I used Melon Mambo on Whisper White cardstock. Since Stampin’ Up! is promoting #simplestamping using paper, ink, and stamps, I wanted to give it a whirl. I am not used to being that simple in my card making, yet it was fresh, fun, and easy to do! I thought this card turned out great! Talk about simple…as in easy! I also used a favorite technique of mine called Stamping Off. You ink the stamp once and then stamp 2 or 3 times. Each time the ink gets lighter and looks like a different color, but it is just lighter shades of the original color…in this case, Melon Mambo (a favorite pink of mine!)

The next card I made was also a #simplestamping card. I used one of my FREE stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration brochure called Hello Cupcake

Hello Cupcake Photopolymer Stamp Set

This was a fun card to make as well. And, yes, I used the Stamping Off technique here too! I used Whisper White as my card base again and changed the color to Rich Razzleberry for the cupcake paper which I stamped at full strength and the icing was stamped off on scratch paper and then on this card to give it a lighter and fluffier look. Crumb Cake was used for the actual cupcake that shows up between the paper and the icing after stamping off on scratch paper, and then the sentiment was Crumb Cake at full strength.

Easy-peasy card! Yummy looking, too, don’t you think?

I think a future post should show you how I might take these cards to the next level. I love watching Connie Stewart’s Now, Wow, or Holy Cow card videos. She is one of the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator’s that I follow on You Tube. She is very inspirational! I have all kinds of ideas running around in my head after watching her videos.

That’s all I have for you today! Back to reorganizing the craftroom. There will be a new post on that this weekend! Now on to see what Tricia chose for sharing with you! Just click the Next picture.16142532_1545314942146166_6627757169686037005_n

Global Stamping Friends – Seasonal Fun

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Hello, Hello!

It’s that time again…First Friday of the month…hopping with my Global Stamping Friends! These are some amazing ladies who make some amazing projects so enjoy the hopping! This month’s theme is Seasonal Fun…so let’s have some fun and I will show you what I created!

I am all about snow right now! I live in Whitefish, Montana and we are supposed to have a lot more snow than we do right now!! Our ski mountain has been making snow to open yesterday. That is so sad! I figure if I keep making cards with winter scenes and lots of snow maybe we will keep getting snow! As a snowmobile rider, I want a lot more snow! I decided to “capture” some snow in a shaker card!

Here is my creation:

1544079113131.jpg

I love purple! So using Gorgeous Grape is a joy! So happy for this new color from Stampin’ Up!! I kept this card simple using the Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White cardstock with a little bit of Tuxedo Black ink. The bow was inked with Gorgeous Grape and stamped off 2 times on other paper before using it on this card. I also used the framelits to make the snowflakes and used silver and lighter colors from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.

I used the Jars of Love stamp set

Jar Of Love Photopolymer Stamp Set

and Everyday Jars Framelit


Everyday Jars Framelits Dies

I used my Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder on the Gorgeous Grape layer after I used the stardust stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set to give it a background pattern. Also from that set are the front sentiment, punch out with the Everyday Label punch and the holly, which I used Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers to ink the leaves and berries and then fussy cut them out. The inside sentiment is from Beautiful Baubles. The inside snowflakes are from the Colorful Seasons stamp set which was inked 1 time and stamped 3 times. Yep, my favorite technique! And I used 3 Pearl White sequin from the Adhesive Backed Sequin set.

 

 

 

 

I am so proud of myself for mixing up my stamp sets…I used to only use what it came with it instead of incorporating others. I am Out-of-the-Box now!! YAY! Finally!

Thank you for hopping with me, now it’s time to enjoy what Jenn made for your delight!16142532_1545314942146166_6627757169686037005_n
