Sing Along to Happy Birthday

The Background Music notes stamp gives off a Christmas vibe....which there is musical note PAPER coming in the Holiday catalog.......more on that in a few days.  I'm really trying to use the Annual catty stamps before I get caught up in the Holiday catty.

I try to keep Birthday cards on hand, often FORGET to send them, but really try!! I ordered some of the Crinkled Seam Binding in Night of Navy.......so that drove the color selection.  Night of Navy ink on Very Vanilla.  Trying for a bit of a Vintage vibe, yet added some color for the Musical vibe.....on a Daffodil Delight card base.


The Balloons were all stamped with Night of Navy ink on Sweet Sugarplum, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Berry Burst.  These are from the Stamp set "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" and the Balloons match the Balloon punch many of you have!  I love it when we use tools for multiple stamp sets!



I used Silver Metallic Thread to tie off the Balloons, the sentiment was cut with Layering Squares Framelits.  And love this Crinkled Seam Binding!!

Coffee Break

 Today I am showing off 2 more patterns of the Coffee Break dsp. The Colors in this paper are so perfect for your Caffeinated Cards and Projects!

The Garden Green cup is from the Be Merry Designer paper in the New catalog on page 113.  Love this Traditional Holiday paper and the scrap was the perfect size for a coordinating cup.  The wrap is Crumb Cake and this Framelt cuts and EMBOSSES!!  Early Expresso for the lid and the Heart is Garden Green.  I can't remember what this is called?  Comment with the answer and I'll send you a prize!!  It is NOT a stirrer.......I know that!



The Coffee Bean and Heart papers were cut 2 1/2 X 5 1/4 and 1 1/2 X 5 1/4.  The new Burlap ribbon meets in the middle.  The Bottom cup is cut from the Wood Grain paper stack(another scrap) and the Sentiment stamped in Early Express on a plain Crumb Cake wrap.

Summer Drinks


Today is a BIG DAY!!  ON Stage registration........my flight is booked, now to get registered and get a Hotel.  November seems a long way off....but it will be here before I know it.

A BIG THANK YOU to all my customers that have supported me this year and I hope I can continue to inspire you with Stampin' Up products.  The Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration catty will be revealed to us demos Nov 9-11.  More FUN times ahead!!

And speaking of FUN,  This card is FUN!!  Do you remember those metal tumblers....not sure who made them, but they were Magenta, Teal, Orange, Yellow  and maybe a Green?  I loved those cups, they were the Summer go to cup.

Here is my Line up of Summer cups!  Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist on a Crumb Cake card base.


The Lemon Lime Twist looks yellow in this picture, I think it is because of the light.  I colored on the back of the Vellum tops with Water Color pencils and Blended with  a Blender Pen.


I added Clear Wink of Stella on the Tumblers and the sentiments is from "All Things Thanks".  The Background paper is the Foil Frenzy Specialty paper.  Love the Shine on this paper!

Thanks A Latte.....

I've been MIA again, cleaning my flooded basement.  Still not totally finished, but this BOX of Goodies was calling my name, so I had to take a break and make a few new cards.

I am not a coffee drinker....I drink HOT Tea and an occasional Hot Chocolate.  So this Iced Latte may be a stretch.......please let me know if I insult the Professional Coffee Drinkers of America!

This paper is the cutest and all the Framelits in this matching Bundle give you endless Drink options....hot or cold, coffee or tea!



I cut the largest cup in Soft Suede and used Crumb Cake ink to add the Ice Cubes.  I adhered the
3 X 5 1/4  dsp to a Crumb Cake card base.



I stamped the outline of the Lid in Archival Black on Vellum and cut out with the Framelits.  The Straw is Soft Sky.

I added Tombow behind the bottom black line to adhere the Vellum to the cup.  Trying to hide adhesive on Vellum can be a bit tricky, but if you use a very light trail of Tombow it will dry almost invisible!!

 The sentiment was stamped in Early Expresso on Soft sky card stock and cut out.  Now I see the framelit for the OVAL.......I hand cut that, can you tell?

Another Daisy....Oh so Sweet


I am so in LOVE with this Bundle and keep seeing such awesome cards.  Today I paired Perfect Plum and Fresh Fig, purples are my favorite colors and appear thru out my home and wardrobe.  So I reach for this color scheme often, but try to spread the color love around the spectrum!



I randomly stamped the small daisy in Fresh Fig on a 4 X 5 1/4 panel.  The Daisy was stamped in Fresh Fig on Whisper White and punched with the matching punch.  Trim your paper to a width with a bit extra to fit the Daisy punch.  Then Stamp and Punch to minimize paper waste.  I added a Yellow Center and Sponged some Perfect Plum on the petals.


I used the Layering Squares Framelits to create the Layered Back drop for the Daisy.  Daffodil Delight ribbon and a Birthday Banner add the Greeting.

Ingredients:

Daisy Delight Bundle   145361  $31.50  Photopolymer stamps and Punch

Brilliant


Today I really "Lit" this card with 2 Light Bulbs!  Stamping on vellum and using a Colored Pencil to add some color to each Light Bulb.  Backed with a Basic Black Circle and some Rhinestones to cover the Tombow spots.  The DSP was cut 4X4 and added to a Whisper White card base and 1 1/4 X 4 Black for the bottom.



This pattern paired really well with Black and White.  The Sentiment was stamped and punched with a NEW punch.   Pretty Label.  This punch is part of a Bundle, which I will be using later this week.

Love you WATTS

Today I am showing you two more patterns of "Pick A Pattern" dsp on  "Flirty Flamingo card stock.  I wanted the Light Bulb to really stand out, so stamped on Vellum and colored the Heart on the back side with the Flirty Flamingo Marker.  I cut 3 ovals with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  A small Whisper White and a Large one of the Flower Pattern.


I adhered the Vellum under the light socket with Tombow to the White oval, then the White Oval to the dsp and then popped it all up.  The reserve side of the dsp gives some contrast to this simple card.

Handwritten Notes

We all need to write more notes......we really do!  Likes are nice and Hearts and Ha Has on FaceBook, but nothing is more personal than a Handwritten note.  Just for you in your mail box.
I still love the excitement of getting REAL Mail!!

Today I used these Beautiful Pens on this note....from Crafting Forever......and the Sentiment is pretty true in my case.  I would rather craft than do almost anything else!


The card base is Tranquil Tide with a piece of Delightful Daisy dsp.  Adhered the dsp and then embossed with the Ruffle Dynamic Embossing folder.  Water color paper was stamped with Archival Black ink and colored with our Color Pencils and Blended with a Blender pen.  Wink of Stella for some Shine.


And Stitched Framelits are the stars for cutting out the Oval and Squares.
