Clearly For You Mojo

Image
Another Mojo Monday....sure needed a boost for the mojo.  And I'm still not sure about this card.  Maybe it was the sketch.  Sure, I'll blame it on the sketch. Anyway, I wanted to ink up my new rubber -- Clearly For You (#121976 clear).  I just loved those little raspberries.  That was how I came up with the color scheme.  I first colored the raspberries in rose red, then I didn't like the way they turned out, so I went to rich razzleberry.  That I liked! The leaves on the flowers are colored with the always artichoke marker. I already had the rose red card stock cut, so I thought I would use it.  It actually doesn't pair too badly with the rich razzleberry.  The other layer is crumb cake embossed using the square lattice embossing folder (no, I didn't use the tulip frame -- but I was tempted).  The bird is punched using the extra large bird punch.  The scallop edge border punch worked well on the rose red layer.  The ribbon is 1/4" rich razzleberry grosgrai

Sweet Summer Thanks

Hi Stampers.  Today's card is a total CASE (copy and share everything).  Unfortunately, I don't have the "owners" name.  If this is your design, email me so I can give you credit. Anyway, the pear pizazz background is embossed using my favorite embossing folder -- tulip border (what else!?).  The next layer is poppy parade 4-1/4" x 3" (perfect size that fits in the frame).  The striped paper is from the Springtime Vintage Designer Paper (found in the mini), and the flowers are stamped from the Sale-A-Bration set called Sweet Summer.  The ribbon is actually 5/8" certainly celery, which matches the pear pizazz pretty well. To get your Sweet Summer stamp set (FREE), simply place a $50 order.  You can get that set or others in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  What a good deal!!! Click here to place your order or email me .

Nature Walk Thanks

Image
Hi Stampers.  Today's card should have been posted a week ago ... it's from a Stamping 411 sketch challenge.  The simple layout and color scheme would be great for a guy or a girl.  The colors are pacific point, sahara sand, very vanilla , and a piece of Blueberry Crisp designer series paper .  The stamp sets used are Nature Walk (colored using pacific point and crumb cake markers ), Punch Potpourri Hostess Level 1 (stamped with pacific point on sahara sand, then punch out with bird punch ).  The decorative border on the the pacific point is punched using the scallop trim border punch .  Oh, and I can't forget the tulip frame embossing folder .....it felt neglected. How would you like to earn the Punch Potpourri Hostess Level 1 stamp set (or any of the hostess sets).  Simply gather a few of your friends together for a time of stamping and fun (my house or yours).  Sale-A-Bration is an excellent time to hold your workshop.  For every $50 you or your customers spend,

Vintage Bliss

Image
Hello stampers.  Today's card is on the vintage side.  The background is crumb cake, with the next layer in early espresso embossed using the square lattice embossing folder.  The very vanilla oval center (cut using the Ovals Bigz die) is stamped in crumb cake using the Bliss stamp (from the Sale-A-Bration collection).  The riding hood red butterflies are cut and embossed using the Beautiful Wings embosslit die and sponged with early espresso.  The bottom portion of the card is a 2" x 5" piece of Botanical Gazette designer paper (found in the Occasions Mini), crumbled up, then sanded to get the totally vintage look.  The side ribbon is cut using the ribbon punch topped off with a taffeta ribbon.  Any of the Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiments would work well, then cut out using the word window punch, encased with a modern label punched piece of riding hood red.

Take a Spin Birthday

Image
Hello Stampers!  Today's card features the Take A Spin stamp set -- with a spin.  Instead of using the spinner hands, I've made a "view master" type card (something I learned at Stamping School).  I also wanted to use the Sale-A-Bration Ice Cream Parlor Paper, and this is what I came up with.  The sentiment is from the SAB So Happy For You set.  The colors are pacific point, old olive and peach parfait.  Such a simple, but fun card! Come back tomorrow, and I'll show you a video on how to make the card. Until then, feel free to place your Stampin' Up! supply order here .
