Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #109



Happy Wednesday Everyone,

Well its monsoon season in Colorado and it rained, rained, rained. Everything is soaked. My flowers will enjoy it though. They will be all perky for a couple of days before they need water again. Of course it will probably rain again today too. Sigh. Well thats enough ranting.

Today I am playing with the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #109. The sketch was designed by Lisa Altman. Love this sketch and the stamp set bundle I'm about to show you. This is a early release from the up coming 2017 Holiday Catalog, and will be available for purchase on August 1st, a whole month before the Holiday Catalog goes live. The holiday season can be a total blur for me. So I really appreciate any jump I can get on this card making season. So let me show you what I have put together.
The Stamp Set is the Carols of Christmas and the Card Front Thinlits are the coordinating dies that go with. Remember if you purchase them together you will save 10%. If you earned any Bonus Days Coupons in July you can apply them to this purchase.

Card Details -

Card Base & Scalloped Layering Square - Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.

Card fronts (there are 2) - Be Merry Dsp is behind the Vellum front.

Focal Square, Poinsettias & Inside Layer - Whisper White Cardstock.

Poinsettia Leaves - Wild Wasabi Cardstock.

Ink - Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green.

Ribbon - Cherry Cobbler Double-Stitched 1/4" Ribbon.

Stamps - Carols of Christmas & Merry Mistletoe.

Dies - Card Builder Thinlits.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked what you found here.

SUO Challenge #179 – New Fun from Stampin’ Up!



Good Morning,

I have been on a gift card holder kick lately. Every time I look at a new Stamp set I think "Wow, that would make a great gift card holder." Sooo... here it is. Please take a look at the other 2 I  made as well. They are in the previous post.

Todays project is for the SOU Challenge #179 - New Fun from Stampin' Up. I like this Gift Card Holder Template a lot. I've seen it all over Pinterest and the net and can't honestly say which one is better. You can adjust the size of the front to accommodate whatever you choose to show on the inside off to the right. This time I used my NEW Coffee Cafe Bundle. The stamps and dies are just too cute together.
The base is Early Espresso Cardstock and measures 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2" and again at 9". The card front is 3 1/4" x 4", I used the coordinating DSP, Coffee Break for this as well as the inside card flap which is 1 3/4" x 4". The inside piece is Whisper White and measures 4" x 5 1/4". I stamped the sentiment in Garden Green Ink and the little Coffee Beans, Coffee Cup Lid and the oval sentiment in Early Espresso ink. I cut the Coffee Cup out of the Coffee Break DSP. Then cut it and the lid using the Coffee Cups Framelits. After I stamped the Thanks a Latte oval I cut it with the oval framelit from the same set. Then I layered the oval on top of a oval Corrugated Element. The half circle on the Gift Card flap was cut with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch. I taped the flap down with Tear-nTape. I put a strip of Soft Sky Cardstock under the Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon just to make it stand out a little more. I popped up the Coffee Cup with Dimensionals.





Don't forget Bonus Days are still going on this month. For every $50, before tax & shipping, you spend, you will receive a $5 coupon you can use in August.

Global Design Project 093 | Colour Challenge



Good Afternoon Everyone,

It's been a long time since my last post. Things have been a little busy around here. We had a couple of things to do at home this spring. We had ordered a Murphy Bed to put in one of our spare rooms, and in the process decided to paint that wall a different color. We chose the same green we used on our sort of feature wall in the living room. Fortunately I had a gallon left over from that project. Plus we added a new closet organizer in that room and we needed to hang the new bifold doors we had bought to go in that closet(which I had to paint). If that wasn't enough, we needed to finish the bathroom in my room. We added a Barn Door to that bathroom(Which I had to seal and varnish).

Then it was my turn to host our monthly Bunco night. That was the 3rd week in May.  I wanted to share a photo of the table signs I made for our group. They turned out so stinkin' cute. I used our new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack - 144131. I chose the new Lemon Lime Twist color so that my signs would stand out easily when you are looking for the correct table.
Bunco Table Signs
I also used the Number of Years Stamp set - 140653 as well as the coordinating Large Numbers Framelits - 140622. I mounted the numbers onto the Oval Stitched Shapes Framelits - 145372, and then matted the oval on the Scalloped Oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits - 141706. I used Wild Wasabi Ink and Cardstock to contrast with the new Lemon Lime Twist. Too too cute.






On to the main reason for this post. The Global Design Project 093 | Color Challenge. My project for this challenge is a Gift Card Holder. I totally love this bundle. From the cute little two step flowers to the fabulous Happy Birthday Thinlit.

I know, this is two posts in one day. But, when I should have posted the 1st one I was at a Stamp Camp with my Up-Line, who is a delightful person who's company I so enjoy. I had such a good time with all the ladies there. Are you ready?
