Color Dare Card – Falling For You

I adore fall colors! I love their warmth and softness, so, of course, when I saw the Falling For You products, I knew they were a MUST have.  This week’s Color My Heart Dare challenge required to use of the Falling For You paper colors along with Saffron, Goldrush, and Fern plus one additional neutral color.  I chose to make this simple Thank You card along with two others using the Falling for You papers and stamp set.

FallingForYouThankYou_CardA

On this card, I used the Falling for You patterned paper with Espresso cardstock for the card base. The leaves were stamped with Fern and Goldrush ink, then cut out using the matching Thin Cuts. (LOVE THIS SET!)   I used the lighter side of the Saffron cardstock to stamp the sentiment.  I enjoyed this paper and stamp set so much that I made two other cards, duplicated them, and was able to make nine cards from one sheet of Falling For You paper.  (A few of them were Pinterest inspired.) Now I have a stock of Thank You cards to send to my wonderful customers. 🙂

Don’t you just love these cards?  I am giving away this three card guide FREE to anyone who places and order on my website during the month of November. This guide will show you how to recreate all of these cards three times from one sheet of Falling For You paper.  That’s NINE CARDS that you can use yourself or give as a gift to a teacher or friend.

As always, I have listed the products used on these cards at that bottom of this post.  I hope you enjoy these Falling For You products as much as I do.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Christmas Tunes Layout

I must admit that it is difficult to keep myself from singing Christmas carols as I create with the Christmas Tunes stamp set.  During the month of October, I will be posting weekly projects using this stamp of the month in hopes that you are inspired to create projects of your own. This week, I have created a Christmas themed scrapbook layout with our Enchantment Fundamentals papers using the Snow Globe image as a simple accent.  You could easily change the color palette and use this layout to showcase your wintry photos.  As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this layout at the very bottom of this post.

ChristmasTunesLayout.jpg

Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ B&T Paper (Ruby Dots), 1¼” x 12″ B&T Paper (Ruby Stripes), 1″ x 12″ B&T Paper (Ruby Stripes), 4″ x 12″ B&T Paper (Fern Stripes), ¼” x 12″ B&T Paper (Fern Stripes), (2) ¼” x 12″ Silver Glitter Paper, 5¼” x 3¾” Fern Cardstock, (2) 5″ x 3½” White Daisy Cardstock, 3″ x 3″ White Daisy Cardstock , 3″ x 3″ Vellum Paper, 3″ x 9″ White Daisy Cardstock, 2″ x 4″ Ruby Cardstock

Techniques Used:
•  The tree border was created using the Tree Line Border Thin Cuts.  I drew a horizontal line 1¼” from the top of the paper then used that line to align the base of the Thin Cut across the paper as I cut out the border.  I used this same line when adhering the Silver Glitter Paper strip.
  The Snow Globe was stamped onto White Daisy cardstock using Black Memento Ink. ChristmasTunesLayout_SnowGlobe I shaded the base of the image using ShinHan™ Markers by blending Carmine, Warm Grey, and Lavender, then I added glitter to the base using a Clear Shimmer Brush.
  The top of the Snow Globe was created by stamping image onto  Vellum Paper.  While the ink was still wet, I sprinkled the image with Clear Embossing Powder, then heated the powder with a Craft Gun.  I also added glitter to the globe using a Clear Shimmer Brush.

 

Remember, the Christmas Tunes Acrylic stamp set is available until October 31st!  Contact me, or visit the Promotions tab my website to see how you can get this stamp set for only $5.00.

It’s simple, fun, and full of ideas using the products from the New Holiday Expressions catalog.

If you get lost , you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, so naturally, I was drawn to the autumn themed products in the New Holiday Expressions catalog.  My favorite stamp set, so far, has been the Falling For You Cardmaking set with the matching Thin Cuts.  This set is full of possibilities.  You can shade the images with markers or pencils, cut them out and layer them, use them for a background, and more. On this card, I chose to use the stamp set many different ways, including heat embossing the images.  As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this card at the very bottom of this post.

HolidayBlogHop_Card
Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 4½” x 3¼” Watercolor Paper, 1″ x 6″ Vellum Paper

Techniques Used:
• Since Fall is so full of color, I used our Watercolor paints to create a background on the 4½” x 3¼” Watercolor paper.  HolidayBlogHop_WatercolorBaseWhile is was still partially wet, I stamped the leaf images onto the cardstock using Flaxen & Saffron inks.  This is what mine looked like when I was finished.
• The larger leaf images we created using our Gold & White Embossing Powders. Once the watercolor paints were dry,  I stamped the White Embossed Leaf image first, heat it to set, then stamped the Gold Embossed Leaf image.
• The sentiment was created by taking the phrases and placing them in a line on a 3½” x 2″ Acrylix Block, then stamping them onto the watercolor paper with Black Ink.
• The smaller leaf images were heat embossed with our Gold & White Embossing Powders on the 1″ x 6″ piece of vellum.  I used the matching Thin Cuts to cut out the images, then layered them behind the watercolor paper.

Autumn Thank You Card

I am a fan of quick and simple cards – the ones I can throw together in under ten-minutes.   I like cards that appear elegant and classy, yet took minimal effort to make.  If you feel as I do, you will adore this autumn thank you card which uses simple images from our Feel So Blessed stamp of the month. This card is all about textures. Texture can add so much to a simple card and bring it to the next level.  I have included a few simple techniques you can use to create texture on any card. As always, the list of products I used can be found at the very bottom of this post.

AutumnThankYouCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 4¾” x 4″ Tangerine Cardstock, 2″ x 6″ Fern Cardstock, 1½” x 1″ Espresso Cardstock, 1½” x 3¾”” Almond Cardstock

Techniques Used:
• Embossing Folders are a great way to add texture. I used the Rose Embossing Folder on the Tangerine cardstock, rounded the corners, and cut it into 1″ strips.
• Our Thin Cuts create a soft edges around each of the images. Since my Cricut® was packed away, I needed an alternative way to cut out the leaves. Our Falling For You Cardmaking Thin Cut worked perfectly for this task.  (Just because they came with the stamp set, doesn’t mean I always have to use them with the stamps.) After cutting three leaves from Fern cardstock, I used the Buffalo Plaid Embossing Folder to add “veins” to the leaves.
• Ribbon is another way to add texture to a project.  I used Burlap Ribbon to create a decorative knot  and attached it to the bundle of leaves.
• You can use ink to add more depth & texture.  I inked all of the edges with Toffee Ink before attaching them to the card.

Don’t forget that the Feel So Blessed stamp of the month is only available until September 30th.  Visit the “Promotions” tab on my website to learn how you can purchase this stamp set for only $5.00.

National Stamping Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Stamping Month Blog Hop where we will be featuring the From the Heart products.  These products include a beautiful card kit and stamp set that can be used to make some gorgeous creations.  StampingMonthBadge If you have come here from Vickie ODell’s blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog.  This blog hop is designed to allow you to start here and work your way around. It’s simple, fun, and full of ideas using the From the Heart products.

If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog: http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.

During the month of September, I will be creating some simple projects using the From the Heart stamp set so make sure to visit often for more inspiration. As I roamed the internet for ideas, I saw that this stamp set was used often with brightly colored flowers and I wondered what it would look like using simple brown tones.  I decided to step outside the box and use our basic colors which resulted in this fall layout that features our Basics Fundamentals papers and inks.  I truly enjoy how it turned out. As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this layout at the very bottom of this post.

NSMBasicsLayout
Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ White Daisy Cardstock, 1″ x 12″ B&T Paper, 1½” x 12″ B&T Paper, ¼” x 12 Espresso Cardstock, ½” x 12 Espresso Cardstock, 6″ x 2″ B&T Paper (Basic Fundamentals), (3) 2″ x 2″ B&T Paper (Basic Fundamentals), 6″ x 4″ Espresso Cardstock, 2″ x 2″ Nutmeg Cardstock

Techniques Used:
• I used all of the brown tones of the Basic Fundamentals paper pack.  You could change this by using all of the grey tones with a Black & White photo.
• After placing down the top and bottom paper and cardstock strips, I used a pencil to draw out the space where my photos and papers would be placed. This helped me to stamp the images on the corners without having to create a mask.  Some of my images where stamped partially inside the drawn rectangle to allow my papers to overlap the stamped images.
• The images were stamped using the From the Heart stamp set with Almond, Toffee, Espresso, and Nutmeg inks.  To create more depth, some of my images are stamped using second generation stamping allowing me to using the inks twice for the same image.


• The small heart was created using Nutmeg cardstock and our Basic Hearts Thin Cuts.  I took apart the White Burlap Ribbon and created two pieces of twine to tie across the heart.
• I always adding a little shine to my layouts, so I placed a strip of Rose Gold Foil tape across the base of the inner rectangle.  After looking at it longer, I might add some Rose Gold gems later.

July is almost over and time is running out to purchase this awesome stamp set.  Throughout the month, I have posted some simple projects you can make using the Storybook Alphabet acrylic stamp set.  This week, I have created a vintage layout for my heritage album using some of our Basics Cardstocks and Rustic Home Fundamentals.  The ENTIRE Basics color palette is retiring this month as well as all of our Fundamentals B&T papers. Make sure to visit my website and order your Basics cardstock, inks, and reinkers, as well as your Fundamentals Papers before they are gone FOREVER.

Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ Cocoa Cardstock, 11½” x 11″ Cashmere Cardstock, 10″ x 5″ Sweet Leaf Cardstock, 7½” x 1″ B&T Paper (Basics Fundamentals), 8″ x 1″ B&T Paper (Basics Fundamentals)

Techniques Used on the Layout:
• The Storybook Alphabet letter stamps were placed randomly onto large 4″ x 5″ My Acrylix blocks, then stamped onto the background cardstock using Cocoa Ink.
StorybookVintageLayout_Block
• The edges were sponged with Cocoa Ink.  I also applied some Cocoa Ink with a sponge onto the letter background of the Sweet Leaf and Cashmere cardstock.
• The White Burlap Ribbon was attached using Micro Glue Dots.  The knot was tied separately, then adhered to the page with a Micro Glue Dot.
• The Rustic Fundamentals Vellum was attached using our Bonding Memories Glue Pen.  I applied the glue the full length of the vellum, allowed it to dry until it was tacky, then attached it the tie B&T paper strip.

Storybook Puppy Love

For all those fur parents out there, here is an adorable layout you can create using our Storybook Alphabet acrylic stamp set.  Over three years ago, we decided to adopt a dog that was found starving, sickly, and tattered along the roadside. She was so frightened when she came into our home and often hid whenever someone came into the house. Well, not only was she tattered, but we found out soon that she was pregnant. We made the decision to continue the pregnancy, assuming that nothing would survive, but a few months later we had six healthy puppies and , OF COURSE, we had to keep one.  God had a plan because six months later our two other dogs (ages 16 and 17) passed away.  We are true dog lovers in this home and I felt this layout is a perfect display of our love for those fur babies.

Washi Wonder Medallion Card

For this week’s Color My Heart Dare challenge, we are required to use Tangerine, Sorbet, Sea Glass, Lemon, White with optional Gold from our Prickly Pear color palette. I was able to use all the colors for this week’s challenge by taking advantage of the washi tape designs on our Washi Wonder acrylic stamp set.

I am so excited that this stamp set was brought back for our July Stampaganza special. I would love to see what you create using some of our stamp sets that were specifically brought back for our Buy 2 Get 1 Free Stampaganza and join the Color My Heart Dare challenge this week.  If you wish to recreate this card, a list of the supplies used can be found at the very bottom of this post.

MedallionWashiCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 5¼” x 4″ Sea Glass Cardstock, 5″ x 3¾” White Daisy Cardstock, 2¼” x 3¾”  Sorbet Cardstock, 2″ x 3½” B&T Paper (Floral Prickly Pear), 12″ x 1″ B&T Paper (Lemon Prickly Pear), 12″ x  ¾” B&T Paper (Sorbet Prickly Pear), 3¾” x ¾” White Daisy Cardstock

Assembly Instructions:
1. Adhere the Sea Glass cardstock onto the center of a 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base.
2. Using Sorbet, Sea Glass, Tangerine, and Lemon Ink, stamp the “Washi Tape” images onto the lower right side of the 5″ x 3¾” White Daisy cardstock.
3. Adhere the 5″ x 3¾” White Daisy cardstock to the center of the Sea Glass cardstock.
4. Adhere the 2″ x 3½” B&T Paper onto the 2¼” x 3¾”  Sorbet Cardstock, then adhere horizontally to the top of the White Daisy cardstock ¼” from the top.
5. Using the Say It All acrylic stamp set, stamp a sentiment with Black Ink onto the right side of the 3¾” x ¾” White Daisy cardstock strip. (NOTE: The Say It All acrylic stamp set is only available during our Stampaganza event.)
6. Adhere the 3¾” x ¾” White Daisy cardstock horizontally to the center of the 2″ x 3½” B&T Paper.
7. To create the medallion, first score the 12″ x 1″ B&T paper every ¼” the full length of the paper. Fold an accordion fold the entire length of the paper, then adhere the ends together to create a tube.
MedallionOne
8. Flatten the tube and adhere the center together.  I have found it best to cut a 1″ circle out of cardstock, place a glue dot onto the center of the circle, then place the cardstock circle onto the center of the medallion.
MedallionTwo
9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create a second medallion with the 12″ x  ¾” B&T paper.
10. Layer the medallions and adhere to the card as shown, then place a small gold gem in the center.

Don’t forget that the Washi Wonder and Say It All acrylic stamp sets are available for a limited time during our Buy 2 Get 1 Free Stampaganza event.
