Hello Everyone, Hope you are all doing well. I’m still in Maine and having a great time with family and friends here. The high today was only 63 degrees and it’s supposed to only get up the the low 70’s all week! A few of the leaves have already started to change colors, as well. I can’t wait to see the trees in a few weeks when all their leaves have changed…I know it will be soooo beautiful!
I’m still making cards and things. The photo came out a little blurry, but here is one of the cards I’ve finished.
It was made with So Saffron, Whisper White, and Tangerine Tango Card Stock. The So Saffron was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder. The girls are from one of my favorite sets, The Nicest Things, and were watercolored with Stampin’ Write Markers. I used the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to cut out 3 pieces of Tangerine Tango CS to place behind the Bitty Buttons. I love this punch set and the buttons because the buttons are clear and you can make any color button you need just by punching the card stock in one of the 4 shapes and adhering it to the back of the button! Now, I don’t have to buy buttons in every color of the rainbow. I also punched out a strip of the Tangerine Tango with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border. (Another punch to have handy if you can’t afford to buy ribbon of every color.)
I still need to take photos of the other cards, but will get them on here soon.
Right now I’m working on one of Tim Holtz’s Configuration Boxes. Of course I’m using some of his products in it, but with a lot of Stampin’ Up, too. I can’t wait to show it to you all!
Thanks for stopping by! Terry
Happy Labor Day, Everyone!
Here is one of the cards I’ve made since arriving in Maine. I shipped three big boxes of my Stampin’ Up! stamp sets, card stock, paper, punches, my Big Shot (of course) and other supplies up here from Florida. That’s not including what I’ve purchased since I got here. I’m going to have even more toys to ship back home! I will be having a couple of classes before I leave here to go and this is one of the cards we’ll be making.
Don’t you just love the Elements of Style stamp set? It’s one of my favorites!
The flowers were stamped in Cherry Cobbler onto Whisper White Card Stock. The Whisper White panel was then run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I wrapped ribbon around the middle of the panel, added a bow, adhered it to a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock, then adhered that to a white card. The sentiment is from the Three Little Words stamp set. It was stamped and cut out with the Scallop Oval punch. I also cut another small piece of Cherry Cobbler with the Decorative Label punch, adhered those two pieces together, and then adhered them to the card front with Dimensionals.
The picture didn’t come out very good and doesn’t really do the card justice. It’s beautiful! I am going to be making several sets of this card using different colors and sentiments. Then I will make a box for each set so I can give them away as gifts. So, So easy!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Terry
Don’t you just love sponged and brayered backgrounds? I know I do! This one was done by sponging Perfect Plum, Tangerine Tango, Peach Parfait, Rose Red, Daffodil Yellow, and So Saffron Inks over the tree image which was first embossed in black on the Whisper White background.
This was so much fun to make!
This card was made with the retired Stampin’ Up! Set, “Always”. I love this set and hate that it has been retired! I guess I’ll just have to buy more stamp sets from the new catalog!! There’s so many great sets to choose from this year.
I had seen a card similar to this one somewhere and made a quick sketch in my notebook so I could make it one day. Well, I finally got around to it a few weeks ago. I stamped the bird in Early Espresso ink and cut it out. The heart in the Whisper White background was stamped in Pink Pirouette. All the pink designer paper was adhered to Early Espresso Card Stock and then adhered to a Crumb Cake card.
