Another Papertrey Ink Project!

This is made with another PTI set. It is called Quilted Summer and has matching dies also. It was fun to make. You cut out the quilt pattern and then stamp all the pieces and put them back in.

The first card I had a little glitch on one of the little pieces so it looks a little different. The second card is the best. It shows this as a pinwheel pattern. The third card I had another little glitch on the sentiment so I stamped it again and fussy cut it out. So most of the time when you make a mistake it can be mostly fixed.
I used daffodil delight, mint macaron and melon mambo for the color combo on this card and layered it with melon mambo cardstock.
I added a couple of little rhinestones to the center of the quilt block and the flower.
The flower is a two step flower and then it has its own little die cut. With these dies, you cut everything out first and then stamp on them because these dies are not thinlits.
This is a fun stamp set. It has the flower stamp, and also has two sizes of pinwheels (stamps and dies) also two sizes of butterflies and a couple of other flowers. So it has lots of possiblities with it.
Tomorrow I will have another PTI card with the Cutting Garden set again.
Happy Stamping!

Make It Monday at PaperTrey Ink!

Over at Nicholes blog for Papertrey Ink, they have their Make It Monday challenge. This week it is to fussy cut something. I just got two new sets in the mail from them on friday and love them both. I love stamping with their photopolymer stamps. They stamp and ink up great. So I stamped the flowers from the Cutting Garden set and stamped them down the side of the card. Then I cut around the edges of the flowers. Of course there are matching dies for this set and I did get them with the set but didnt use them so I could enter this challenge.
This is a single layer card which is really hard for me. It just doesnt seem right not to layer it up and add some great embellishments. So I did add some ribbon on it.
The ribbon is also papertrey ink I think Aqua Mist. The inks are stampin up, the new in colors watermelon wonder and macaron mint, plus daffodil delight and melon mambo.
The sentiment also came from the Cutting Garden stamp set. I think there are 4 sentiments with this set.
Happy Stamping!

Stampendous Build A Bouquet!





This card is so much prettier in person. I love how it turned out. One thing you cant see in the picture is the shimmer on all the flowers. I used Wink Of Stella and made them very sparkly.
This set is from Stampendous Build A Bouquet. I had to wait a whole month to get the complete set.
First I got the pop up die, then the flower dies, and finally the flower stamp set.
I colored these with Copic markers. I hadnt colored in so long it was hard to get back in the swing of it.
The pop up die has 4 tabs on it for the vase and flowers to make them stand out.
The Happy Birthday is from my new Gina K designs Stamp Tv kit. I love the font on it.
It looks so elegant
Happy Stamper!

Painted Petals!


This is a set of cards I made using Stampin Ups Painted Petals set. I love the watercolor look to this set and the petit little flowers. I used Melon Mambo and Old Olive inks. I also used the papers to match this set. I decorated the envelopes too including liners. I am thinking of making a purse to match to store these cards in. I made them all thinking of you cards so I decide to give them as a gift they can be used for lots of occasions.
Happy Stamping!

Saturday Sketch Challenge!

Hello!
Here is a springy card using mostly all Gina K Design products. The yellow is actually So Saffron from Stampin Up and I did use Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Inks from SU. All other products are from Gina K. The stamps and dies for the flowers and leaves are from the new Gina K Stamp TV kit.
The ds papers are from it also. I had also purchased her inks Blue Denim, Powder Blue, Prickly Pear and Sweet Corn.
I used the sketch from sketch saturday for the layout of this card.
Scraps leftover from other card

Used Sketch from Sketch saturday

I had a few scraps leftover when I made this card. My papers were 6 x 6. So I made them into 1" strips and made the other card. I also had extra roses and leaves cut out.
Happy Stamping!

Floral Wings and CTS#123

This card was made with the sketch from Cas(E) this sketch #123 . I used all the new Stampin Up In-Colors. Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon.
The stamp set is also from the new catalogue and it is called Floral Wings. It has a matching die but it wasnt on the sneek preview list so I had to cut these out by hand. The lace at the bottom of the card is also in the new in-colors. It is 5/8" wide but I only let about less then half of that show. I have used the word window punch for the sentiment which comes with the Floral Wings set. The flower on the butterfly is also in the new catalogue and comes in all the in colors. I have used a little bit of the lace and then put one of the flowers on top.
All of  the items for this card will be in the new catalogue. Everyone will be able to order out of starting June 2nd. I cant wait to start ordering from it.
Happy Stamping!

SFYTT Reverse Confetti Challenge

This card is for the challenge at SFYTT Reverse Confetti . They have some of the cutest stamps and dies. I love this one. I used the little ice cream die and sentiments to go with it. The sentiments are called Love and Ice Cream. It has some really cute sentiments with it.
The DS papers are from Best Creations Inc. Candy Shop collection and I also used SU Strawberry Slush cardstock. I added stickles on the bottome of the hot fudge sauce, the cherry and the ice cream.
The ice cream cup was run thru the cuttlebug with the swiss dots embossing folder.
The little cherry on top is from the cupcake punch from SU.
Happy stamping!

Cute Purse/Container!



I found this great idea for the wood mount stampin up cases at Inking Idaho's blog on making these cute little purses out of the stampin up wood mount cases. I thought oh no I dont have any and am not going to be ordering for awhile. But then I realized I do have lots of extra thin cases. I have several Stampin Up sets that came in these woodmount size cases. But they are photopolymer sets and fit easily in the smaller cases. So I transferred one of them over to a smaller case and then had a larger case ready to try this new purse.
So it was really easy and fun. I found some pretty papers to use and then decorated the outside of the front and added the handle.
Very cool! You can use it to put cards in with maybe a matching pen and some postage stamps. Or I found out that these cases are the perfect size to put your stamping supplies in for traveling. Like your scissors, bone folder, adhesive, and whatever small tools your might travel with.
So I am off to Tamis house on saturday for a day of stamping and thought I would try it out.
On this case I used some Elizabeth Craft word dies, and Stampin Up butterfly thinlit. I sprayed the butterfly with some Tattered Angel glimmer mist to give it a little bit of sparkle.
You could also add some glitter to the butterfly. Then I put one of the pretty embellishments from the stampin up occasions catalog on the butterfly.
Happy Stamping!

Butterfly Thinlits!

I found this card on pinterest and added just a little bit. I changed the color of the butterfly and added the white row of embossed dots across the bottom. These butterfly thinlits are very popular right now at stampin up. All materials for this card are Stampin Up. I used the Painted Petals stamp set and the hardwood background stamp on Smoky Slate cardstock. I layered it with white to add a little pop to the color. The flowers and fern are elegant eggplant,  primrose petal and old olive. The little butterfly stamped across the top is from one of the Sale a bration sets It is also stamped in Elegant Eggplant and was added from the original card I cased.
Happy Stamping!

Baby Cards!



I made these baby cards for a previous co worker. She is going to be having a baby girl in the middle of June. I made a gift bag to match and put the card for her on the outside instead of an envelope. Then I made 25 cards that say thank you so she can use them after the baby is born.
I received this set last fall at the Stampin Up catalogue premier. I bought the matching punch.
I didnt think I would ever use this set but it does make a cute baby card.
Happy Stamping!

Conserving Paper!

Here is another card I cased from Simply Simple Stamping. It is using Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink. Also some black ink. The stamp sets used with this card are Gorgeous Grunge, Feel Goods, and Everything Eleanor.
I love the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. It looks so artsy but it works great with a lot of things.
I also punched out some little flowers with a marvy flower punch and added some gold glitter glue.
This card is a little different. The actual opening is on the front and then it is attached to a quarter sheet of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. So the opening is on top not the normal opening. If you are trying to conserve paper this is a really good way to do it.

My Friend!

Here is another card I cased from Simply Simple Stamping. This one is very pretty. The raindrops are
filled in with Glossy Accents and then filled in with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
The image is stamped on glossy cardstock and then sponged in with yellow for the sun and blue for the sky. I used a crayon around the hello and image that I didnt want the sponging ink to stick too and then when you are done sponging you wipe off the crayon and buff your card at the same time.
The cheaper the crayons the better, because they have more wax in them. I believe I used marina mist and daffodil delight cardstock.
Happy Stamping!

Cupcake Shop!

This was a really fun card to make. I love how it looks like a little bakery shop.
I used the stampin up Create A cupcake stamp set and punch. I have had them forever and I think only used them once before.
I found someone that has great tutorial on you tube. Her name is Connie Stewart and she has a great blog and great videos. I spent a whole day watching them and found tons of things I wanted to case.
You can find her here . I cased this card from her. I showed it to my husband and he saided it needed something so I changed it up a little. I added the brown strips in the awning to give it some contrast and the cupcake tops instead of stamping them, I punched them out of Pink Pirouette and then stamped the sprinkles and then ran them thru the cuttlebug with the swirls embossing folder to make them look more like frosting with texture.
Check out Connies Videos! They are awesome!!!!!
