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!

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

Extraordinary Hop – SU! Sale-A-Bration Style

Hello, Hello!

It’s that time again…a Blog Hop with Global Stamping Friends! WooHoo! These ladies are quite talented, live all over the world, and I really enjoy hopping with them! So, let’s get this party started!

Since it is Sale-A-Bration, Stampin’ Up!’s most special time of year…I chose a stamp set from the new Occasions Catalog called Meant To Be. Yes, it is a Valentine’s Day stamp set, however, it can also just be a stamp set of LOVE! We all love the versatility of stamp sets!

And then there is the framelit set that goes with it, as a Bundle, of course! I LOVE< LOVE< LOVE it! It’s called Be Mine Stitched Framelits! I am truly loving all the stitched framelits they are coming out with!!

Here is the card I made:

1547181499862.jpg

I used Powder Pink cardstock as my card base and Powder Pink ink to stamp the hearts all over the card in random ways…even falling off the card. I used most of the hearts in the set. Then I used my Big Shot and ran these 2 framelits through using Lovely Lipstick cardstock. The little heart at the end of the sentiment is also Lovely Lipstick cardstock from the cloud of hearts framelit that I used for another card you will see in the next post. I almost lined the hearts up perfectly, then asked the Hubster what he thought (he has a good eye for photos and colors) and he agreed that offsetting them and making them wonky looked better. That was the way I was leaning toward as well. Linear has it’s place, just not on this card. 🙂

The sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black ink and actually comes from the Part of My Story stamp set which is FREE with a $50 order in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. It has such great sentiments! You’ll see more of them on my future cards and scrapbook pages!

That is all I have for now…come back later and you’ll see more of these stamp sets and framelits!
