So Sentimental Monochromatic Swap Card

I participated in a swap this month using either carry-over items or new catalog items. I chose to use a carry-over stamp set. I’m using the Mojo Monday Sketch #536 again for this card. My mojo is still running low so I’ve learned that the easiest way for me to work around that is to use sketches and apparently monochromatic color schemes.

I have three versions of my card. First is my original design. I embossed a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel and adhered it to the front of the card and I used the Scalloped Lace Trim.

I normally don’t like to emboss my card base but in this instance I thought it looked better to have the entire front of the card embossed. I also didn’t have enough of the Scalloped Lace Trim for all of the swap cards, so out it went too. Here is my second card and my swap card.

I also made one more card like my original with the Scalloped Lace Trim but the whole front of the card embossed. This one is my favorite. You probably can’t see it in the photos but the butterflies have Wink of Stella on them.

Say Goodbye to Breathtaking Bouquet

It’s no secret if you follow my blog that I loved the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp. I was cleaning off my crafting table and I found a leftover piece of watercolor paper embossed with this stamp. Well, I got out my pigment sprinkles and I attempted to watercolor on the stamped image. It’s really hard to see white embossing on white paper but I gave it a try. I much prefer just using the pigment sprinkles and a spray bottle. 🙂

After I finished the watercolor, I die cut the image and sprayed it with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol to give it a little shimmer. The sentiment comes from the retiring Kindness & Compassion stamp set. I die cut the edge of the card base with the border scalloped die from the Stitched Be Mine dies.

Say Goodbye to Royal Peacock

It’s time to say Goodbye to the Royal Peacock stamp set along with the rest of the items in the suite. I loved the Nobel Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper and Foil sheets. They are just so pretty I had to use all of the foil colors on this card along with a piece of the specialty DSP. I even stamped the inside of the card, I don’t usually do that because I donate many of the cards I make.

I’m playing along with Fusion Card Challenge.

Say Goodbye to This Little Piggy

I used the light Calypso Coral, Light Smoky Slate, Light Soft Suede, and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends markers to color the image. Then I inked around it using Balmy Blue and a make up brush. I also inked the smaller circle because the white was too stark.

I followed Mojo Monday sketch #536.

Say Goodbye to Daisy Delight

I don’t have to be too sad to say goodbye to Daisy Delight because I also have the Daisy Lane stamp set and it’s sticking around. I will miss using the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder for blog posts but it will be staying in my collection because I love it. After stamping the flowers, I inked the top of the die cut with Balmy Blue. For the daisy, I used my bone folder to curve the petals up and then to curve the ends of the petals down.

I’m following the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge #456 which is pretty similar to many of the cards I’ve made lately. 🙂

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 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.
