Come Sail Away Memories & More Quick Card

Have you ever needed to put together a quick card? Perhaps you’ve noticed the Memories & More Card Packs in the Annual Catalog. If not, they are found on page 171. They are designed for quick and easy scrapbooks. But they also make great pieces for quick cards, too. I used the Come Sail Away pack that coordinates with the Come Sail Away Suite on pages 144-145. Just one pre-printed card pack piece, two pieces of cardstock (Balmy Blue & Night of Navy) and one embellishment from the Sail Away Trinkets. No ink or stamps needed!

Lily Fun Fold for #JOSTTT016

JOSTTT016Today’s card is my submission for The Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe April 2020 Challenge #JOSTTT016. I used Flowers, Ink Blending, and Designer Paper.  I thought I’d do a fun fold that would showcase both sides of this beautiful Lily Impressions DSP.  Please don’t ask what this fold is called, because I have no idea! Sale-a-Bration is over, but I will still use these beautiful Lily products! I stamped the lily in Lovely Lipstick, then made a small pool of Wink of Stella on my scrap paper and used the Aqua Painter to pick up some Flirty Flamingo ink and added it to the WOS and watercolored the flower that way. I hit it with the Heat Tool on setting 1 to dry it quickly. I also hit it with heat on the backside to help flatten it out. I die cut it out and layered it onto a second die cut from Lovely Lipstick. So pretty!

Praying For You Triangle Fold for WWC265 Challenge

I haven’t participated in any stamping challenges lately, so I looked through some of my favorite blogs and decided to enter a card in the Watercooler Wednesday Blog challenge. This week’s challenge is:

WWC265 – Marsha’s Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

I wanted something soft, demure and with flowers. I also knew I wanted a fun fold. I was looking though my Pinterest folder Cards – Folds and found the Triangle Fun Fold Card by Jackie Bolhuis at klompenstampers.com. I just knew it was perfect to highlight the gorgeous paper in the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP. Praying For You Triangle Fold

Balloon of Heal-ium for a Special Someone

Today’s card has an adorable little mouse holding a “heal-ium” filled balloon (that is the sentiment stamped inside). I just adore the Special Someone stamp set in the 2020 Spring Mini catalog. It also has a raccoon and a squirrel. It’s a two-step stamp set, so you can use a darker ink for the outline detailing and a lighter shade to color the inside quickly and easily. You could also choose to stamp the outline and color in the images with watercolor pencils or Stampin’ Blends. Lots of coloring options. I also adore these shades of purple and I hope the recipient likes them, too!

A Touch of Tulips with The Joy of Sets Blog Hop

March 2020

It’s time once again for a super fun blog hop with my fellow The Joy of Sets hoppers! Scroll to the end to see the complete list of hoppers. Our theme this month is anything Easter or Spring. What a perfect time for tulips! My mother has always loved yellow tulips, so she is the inspiration for this card.  I adore this fun fold and thought it was perfect for the flowers. I used the Tulip Builder Punch with a sticky note to create a mask so that I could have some of the flowers in the background without stamping over the foreground.

Woven in Joy Wedding Card

The Woven Threads Suite featured on pages 12-13 of the Annual Catalog is so vintage and the colors remind me of my grandparents. This card comes together quickly and the layout is typical of my style. The Perennial Essence Vellum used for the leaves gives it a 70s vibe. Sweet and simple.
