Joy of Sets May Blog Hop

I just love how this sentiment turned out! I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss, then in Whisper White and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I then stamped with Whisper White again and heat embossed using clear embossing powder and it came out so interesting. It pulled the Blackberry Bliss and the Old Olive into the final colors. I used Old Olive to stamp the stems. The little flowers are Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo.

I followed a sketch from Inspire. Create. Challenges.

Say Goodbye to Animal Outing

I decided to play with my embossing paste on this card. I mixed a few drops of Gray Granite re-inker into a pile of embossing paste for the background. I also created the mask for the background by using the stones die from the Animal Friends dies.

Say Goodbye to Beautiful Promenade…

…Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper, and Blueberry Bushel.

I’m low on mojo right now so I headed straight for card sketches. Today I’m using the May 2020 layout from Sheetload of Cards.

The flower is stamped in Flirty Flamingo but I needed to stamp it off on scrap paper first before stamping the image because it was too bold otherwise and Petal Pink just didn’t look right either. I used a sponge dauber and the Stamparatus to color in the center part of the flower to make it stand out a little more. Once I adhered the patterned paper, I used the Subtles embossing folder.

Say Goodbye to the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack

The Magnolia Lane card pack coordinates with the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and makes these cards so quick and easy to put together. Most of the cards are made with just the 3″ x 4″ card on the front popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. On the insides I used the 4″ x 6″ cards.

Say Goodbye to the Come Sail Away Memories & More Cards

I love to buy the Memories & More card packs but I forget to use them. I recently sent a make & take using these Memories & More cards along with paper from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. Each card will be a little different because there are only two of each design in the card pack. Here was my example card for them.

Very Versailles Love

This card was inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video where she was stenciling and masking. I die cut a heart out of Very Vanilla cardstock, masked off the all but the heart on the front of my card, then stamped. I’d recommend using the largest heart die from the Stitched Be Mine dies and not the one that just does stitches like I did. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used a craft knife to finish cutting out the heart. I stamped the words, frame, leaves, and a heart inside the heart before inking with Crumb Cake. Then I put the heart in place, removed the outside, and inked around with Soft Sea Foam. That didn’t set off the heart well enough so I stamped the leaves and added the heart frame. I finished it off with the sentiment on dimensionals. I was trying to make a one layer card, maybe next time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mountain Air

I finally broke out my Mountain Air stamp set and coordinating Majestic Mountains Dies. I stamped the tree line in Mossy Meadow ink on Mossy Meadow cardstock and then again using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. I found it a challenge to line up the die for the tree line so next time I may die cut it first and then stamp. The mountains are stamped in Versamark on Smoky Slate and embossed in white. I inked the background with Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. Once I put the card together, I decided to splatter some Frost White Shimmer Paint on it for stars…I forgot to protect the mountains and the trees so a shimmer spritz to the rescue again. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also the moon is Basic Gray ink on Basic Gray cardstock and punched out with the 1″ circle punch to hide a splotch of paint that was too big.
