Serene Silhouettes Meets Work of Art

When your life seems to be a bit unsettled, the best therapy is to sit down and stamp and that’s what I did this morning and after I finished the card, I truly felt 100% better and the card brought a smile to my lips.

I absolutely love Serene Silhouettes and even more so when I combined it with the Work of Art stamp set.

Serene Silhouettes Work of Art

I started with a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock cut 4 1/4″ by 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  The second layer is a piece of Calypso Coral cut 5″ x 3 3/4″.  To that I layered a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cut 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.  I ran it through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.

The focal image is stamped on a scrap of Whisper White large enough to cut out the Oval Framelit (#4 with the smallest being #1).  I stamped the background using the Work of Art brush stamp.  I inked it up with Crisp Cantaloupe and stamped off once before applying it to the Whisper White.  This is repeated 3 times.

The image from Serene Silhouettes was inked with Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz markers and then stamped over the background.

This was this run through using the Oval Framelit #4.

After adhering the Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypyso layers together, add some Calypso Coral twine (retired) around the middle.  You can substitute the Calypso Coral with the Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Bakers Twine (#135636).   Place dimensionals on the oval piece and adhere to the front of the card and then complete the tying of the twine by adding a Vintage Faceted Designer Button.  Place a glue dot on the button to make sure it stays in place.

Complete the card with pearls – one in the centre of the button and three tiny ones in the centre of the blossoms.

Supplies:

Now if only the temperatures would only moderate, I would be feeling 110% better (shouldn’t complain I know, but it’s just too much heat for me). My apologies to all you sun worshippers. :)

You can shop my online store HERE for the supplies to make today’s card.

Thanks for stopping today and happy stamping!

Stamp of the Month Kit

I’m happy to introduce a Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Kit.  What is a SOTM Kit?  This is a great way to receive a new stamp set and all the supplies to make 3 projects featuring your new stamp set.  Each month I will select a stamp set for the month.

The cost of the SOTM kit will be between $35 – $45 depending on the cost of the stamp set (the stamp sets will be ordered in clear mount only and may include a set of embellishments).  If you prefer wood, we can work out the extra costs for the stamp set and Canada Post charges.

As a product based club, you can add to your stamp collection as well as have product to use your stamp set right away.  When the kit is sent to you, you will receive a pdf file which will have full instructions with pictures on how to assemble your 3 projects plus pictures for additional projects.

PAYMENT

You will pay in advance.  Once you email me that you would like to purchase the SOTM Kit, I will send you a Paypal invoice with payment to reach me by the 1st of the month.  I will order your stamp set, etc by the 3rd of the month and send it to you along with the supplies to make 3 projects and will also send you via email the pdf instructions.

You will be billed for the cost of the SOTM kit and Canada Post Priority Mail of $12.23 (from BC to SK) or $20.16 (MB east).

CHOOSE YOUR SIGN UP OPTION

  1. Month to Month – Shipping by CP Priority Mail of $12.23 or $20.16 will be added to your order.  No charge for local subscriptions picked up from me.
  2. Sign up for Three Months – your shipping charges will be half of the regular CP Priority Mail charges, $6.12 or $10.08.

WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE

By signing up for the SOTM Kit, you will receive:

  1. The kit at a discount with the featured stamp set
  2. All card stock pre-cut for the 3 projects, Designer Series Paper (if applicable to the projects for the month), and accessories used on the projects **
  3. All punching and dry embossing (if applicable) will be done for you
  4. A pdf via email with instructions and pictures for each project
  5. Additional pictures that you can use to create more projects

** Adhesives, ink and stamped images are not included.  Stamped images cannot be included as per Stampin’ Up! rules.

The first SOTM starting in August is the Beautiful Bunch stamp set.  If you already own this set, you can select a stamp set of equal value ($24.95).  As this stamp set co-ordinates with the Fun Flower punch, it will be part of the kit.  With the punch being part of this initial kit, the costs are just slightly more.

As this first kit is a bit more than the general cost of each kit, I am offering a larger discount for the kit.  The kit charge will be $50.00, regular price for both stamp set and punch would be $59.00, a savings of $9.00.  Plus you receive all the supplies to make the 3 projects.  Canada Post Priority Mail charges will added to the kit cost.

Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks

There’s a need for some thank you cards as Colin has been having a grand time spending time with his cousin, Cary, in Victoria and then with Susan and Tom on Keats Island this summer.  I brought out the Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks to make this one for Cary.

Just Sayin' Stars Decorative Mask

These masks come in four different patterns, one set is the Hearts and Stars and the other is the Dots and Stripes and priced at only $3.95 for each set. They are also very easy to use – just in regular stencilling, place the stencil/mask over your card stock and using the sponge daubers or sponges, apply your color. When you’re finished you can clean the mask either with a baby wipe or rinse off the color.   For this card, I used Cherry Cobbler.

The sentiment is from Just Sayin’ and cut out with the co-ordinating Word Bubbles framelits.

Kinda Eclectic

Have you used all the stamps in one set at the same time to make a card?  Very seldom do I actually use every stamp in a set but in this card, I used all of them.

Kinda Eclectic Meadow

I wanted to use Mossy Meadow but not having purchased the new In Color Color Coach (tsk! tsk!), I turned to the net to see what I could find to give me some ideas.  I came upon this site where I inserted the color Mossy Meadow and it came up with the combination of Mossy Meadow, Blushing Bride, Whisper White and Wild Wasabi.  It’s a great color combo!

With the large starburst image I decided to make a square card and am very pleased with the result.  What do you think?

Supplies:

 

Petite Petals

I received this new Tiny Triangles embossing folder a few weeks ago and am only just using it in this card.  So many lovely new embossing folders in this year’s catalogue and they are my favourite accessory.

Petite Petals Banner

The base card stock is Pool Party cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  The layered embossed Whisper White measures 5 1/4″ x 4″.  The flowers from Petite Petals are stamped with Pool Party on Whisper White and Pool Party card stock.

The sentiment from Lots of Thanks is stamped on Whisper White and then cut out with the Banners Framelits.  I used the Essentials Paper Piercing template to pierce the border of the banner.  This was layered onto a piece of Pool Party card stock also cut out with the Banners Framelits one size larger.

A length of Pool Party ruffled ribbon (retired) is placed around the centre of the embossed Whisper White layers and the banner focal piece was adhered to that.  A few pearls were added to the centres of the flowers to complete the card.

Beautiful flowers

It’s always great to receive samples of cards made by friends or my downline.  Today’s share is from Shannon, one of my team members, who signed up with me last year.  We had a meeting scheduled last week but unfortunately she came down with the flu, seems like it’s going around right now, but sent me photos of her swaps that she had prepared.

Shannon's Card Fronts_edited-1

She made her flowers combining Blushing Bride with Calypso Coral card stock and completing the flower with a Subtles Candy Dot.  I love the way she used the Banner Punch with the Banner Blast (SAB) stamp set to frame the flower.  The DSP is from the Regals DSP, sentiment from Itty Bitty Banners that were cut out with the co-ordinating Bitty Banners Framelits.  Shannon completed the flowers by adding a whimsical bow using the Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine.
