Freshly Made Sketches #341



Good Morning,

Stampin' Up! has a new distINKtive stamp set that I think you will love. Healing Hugs is going to be my Go To Get Well Set for this year.  I chose the Freshly Made Sketches #341 as a way to share my first card from this set. My card also uses 2 new colors too.
Lovely Lipstick, one of the new In Colors for this year, and Shaded Spruce, a truly beautiful new green that was introduced with the Color ReVamp for this year. Living in Colorado I am so in love with our Blue Spruce Pine Trees. Shaded Spruce is so close to their color. I have also selected a sheet of the new 6 x 6 In Color Designer Series Paper to use for my Card Front.

June 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop


Welcome to the June 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month's theme is all about the New Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I am simply over the moon for so many of the new products in the new annual catalog. I will so enjoy sharing my creations with all of you as I work my way through the next few weeks.

My contribution to this hop is a card I made using a couple of new sets that I know you will want to get your hands on. Animal Outing and Rooted In Nature. The adorable Kangaroo with that sweet baby Koala bear peeking out was just screaming at me to ink it up.

The Card front comes from the Nature's Poem DSP.  The Soft Suede Cardstock Strip has been embossed with the triple leaf embossing die from the Rooted in Nature Bundle. I also chose the triple leaf Stamp and Die from the Rooted in Nature Bundle to accent the Ovals. The Oval behind the Kangaroo is a piece of Wood Textures 6" x 6" DSP (Designer Series Paper) that I embossed with the Pinewood Planks DTIEF (Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder). Then I mounted it onto a Soft Suede Scalloped Oval Mat. Both of the Ovals come from the Layering Ovals Framelits. The Kangaroo is stamped with Soft Suede Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock then I took a blender pen to all of the shaded areas to soften it some more. I fussy cut the Kangaroo out, the coordinating dies are on order but I could not wait to play. The sentiments are stamped with VersaMark Ink onto Soft Suede Cardstock. I used White Stampin' Emboss Powder to heat emboss the sentiments. The Stitched Labels Framelits Die I used fit the words perfectly. I popped up the Ovals, Stitched Labels and the Kangaroo on Dimensionals. I wrapped some Linen Thread around the Card Front and tied a bow. The Sentiment on the Inside Layer is from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set.

The Stamparatus and the Wreath Builder Template


I wanted to find something unusual to demonstrate this wonderful new tool Stampin' Up! has given us. The Stamparatus has become an essential part of my card making. Aside from the fact that I no longer have to deal with slightly crooked sentiments. I'm sure you have seen the Wreath Builder Templates all over the net these days. I thought I would give it a try. I think it turned out pretty good.

To make the Template I cut a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock 5" Square. Then penciled lines from corner to corner to help me find the center. I used the largest Square Die from the Layering Squares Framelits to cut the Squares. I have made a video showing both the Template and the Wreath I stamped with the help of the Stamparatus.

Card Base - Rich Razzleberry Cardstock - 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".
Card Front - Share What You Love DSP - 3 3/4" x 5".
Pool Party Cardstock Layer - 3 1/4" x 4 1/4".
Rich Razzleberry Cardstock Mat - 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Whisper White Design Layer - 2 7/8" x 2 7/8".
Whisper White Scrap for the Sentiment Label.
Inks - Pool Party, Powder Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Berry Burst.

Global Stamping Friends BlogHop: The New Catalog

Hello Everyone,

Today the New Stampin' Up! Catalog goes live. Get your wish list together. I'm afraid of how long mine is going to be. LOL  We have an entire year to collect our favorites.

This months GSF BlogHop is all about the new Catalog. I chose to show you a card that I had made using the Share What You Love Suite.  The Designer Series Paper in this suite is a heavy weight paper that has a pearlized finish on one side and a normal print on the other. I was able to capture a little of the shine in my photo. The fact that the paper is a heavy weight lends itself to a variety of uses. I was able to fussy cut many of the flowers to create this card. You could easily use it as a notebook cover it is so strong.
