The Path of Wildlife for Joe

I needed a Thinking of You card for the husband of a friend of mine named Joe. He’s been going through cancer treatments and it seems like one issue after another with side effects. I wanted to cheer him up a bit to let him know people are praying for him. I don’t know him very well, so I’m hoping he appreciates wildlife like I do. This card uses the bear and shadow stamps from Wildlife Wonder and the tall grass from Wildflower Path. The Wildlife Wonder set is a DistINKtive set, which means it is designed to create multiple shades with just one stamp. I used Blending Brushes to create a soft background as well. The added texture from the Timber 3D Embossing Folder gives it a subtle background. I didn’t feel like any embellishments were needed.

Card Recipe
Stamp Sets: Wildlife Wonder, Wildflower Path
Cardstock: Basic White, Old Olive, Pool Party, Soft Suede
Ink: Old Olive, Pool Party, Soft Suede
Tools: Blending Brushes, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Timber 3D Embossing Folder

Glimmering Smiles

Introducing the 5 new 2022 – 2024 In Colors that will be available on May 3 for two years! All 5 colors are absolutely beautiful together! And Holy Smack, you guys! What an added bonus that the 5 new colors are all available in GLIMMER PAPER, too?!? I am in heaven!

This card today makes me so incredibly happy! The new Sending Smiles bundle includes a stamp set with a great variety of sentiments and coordinating dies. Here you also get a sneak peek of the In Color Decorative Dots, too. So cute! I couldn’t let the background get all the sparkle, so I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to the flower. Only one thing would make me happier…if I could find glittery nail polish to match!

Summer Sun and Shadows

Today’s card uses a little bit of new and a little bit of retiring. The new Sun Prints Designer Series Paper is right up my alley with all the gorgeous shades of blue. The Brushstroke Specialty Paper is beyond beautiful with the shimmer so I decided to use it for the top flower die layer and the strip that I embossed Happy Birthday on in white. Another new product is the Lovely Layers Vellum that I used for the background flower die. Retiring products are the Pierced Blooms dies and Polished Dots. The current catalog ends on May 2nd and the new one starts May 3rd. Just over a week to go!

Inspiring Earth Day

I used to do so many different kinds of crafting and one was using fabric paints and iron on transfers on clothing. My cousin April introduced it to me while I was visiting family in Florida. This was over 30 years ago, but I’ve never forgotten the sweet quote above on one of the designs. I loved it then and I love it now…quoting it often. It’s my hope that people treat every day like it’s Earth Day.

My cards today are for some special coworkers that focus on recycling efforts in my County. I have volunteered for activities in the past and can appreciate all the hard work it takes to make those events come together. I love what they do and I appreciate them!

Ombré Sea Life

Here’s a fun Birthday card using the Seas the Day bundle in the January – June 2022 mini catalog. It’s another one I will miss. I didn’t use it nearly enough, to be honest, and I’m kicking myself for it. You can still grab it before it’s gone…and tomorrow, Thursday, April 21, 2022 Stampin’ Up!® is offering Free Shipping for 24 hours (with a minimum $75 purchase)!

I love shaker cards and this one is just plain fun! An underwater scene that uses 2 retiring In Colors – Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider. I glued the jellyfish, starfish and yellowfish to the inside and glued the crab and seaweed on the outside. I filled the shaker with shimmery hexagon glitter I found at the local craft store. The top scene die is cut from the Ombré Glimmer paper, which is also retiring, so be sure to grab a pack of that, too! It comes in 4 fabulous colors.

Card Recipe
Stamp Sets: Seas the Day, Blossoms in Bloom (sentiment)
Cardstock: Basic White, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy
Specialty Paper: Ombré Glimmer, Window Sheets
Ink: Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Coastal Cabana, Poppy Parade

Easter Ode to Kismet

As the January – June 2022 mini catalog comes to a close, I thought it would be a good idea to post a few sets that I will definitely miss. Below are the Easter cards I made this year using the Easter Friends set. It’s an adorable spring set that can be used for things other than Easter. Do you know someone that has a sweet little bunny like me? Send them a card using the bunny! Do you know someone that adores little baby ducklings? Send them a card using the duckie! Do you know someone that has a little backyard barn of chicks? Send them a card using the chickie! So cute…you still have time to grab the stamp set…and what better time than Thursday, April 21, 2022 when Stampin’ Up!® is offering Free Shipping for 24 hours (with a minimum $75 purchase)!

These 1″ book-fold cards feature the bunny that reminds me of our pet bunny, Kismet. I couldn’t resist! I decided to break out some retired In Colors, DSP and sequins from my hoarding stash to make these sunshiny cards. I had to add the sweet bow because it’s too cute. I wish I could get Kismet to keep a bow on her ear! So here is my Easter Ode to Kismet:

Card Recipe
Stamp Set: Easter Friends
Cardstock: Basic White, Thick Basic White, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove*, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist*
Designer Series Paper: Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″*
Ink: Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove*, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist*
Lovelies: Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack*, Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins
Tools: Birthday Chick Dies, Layering Ovals Dies, Ornate Frames Dies

Saying Goodbye to the Big Cats

The new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog is almost upon us and we must say goodbye to the retiring products. You can still score these products…and in fact, the dies, embossing folder and DSP are all on sale!

This card features the “book binding” style on the left. That 1″ scored part has the ribbon wrapped around before being adhered to the base. I have a funny story about the card base…I am working on wedding invitations for my son and his fiance. I made 80 of these bases…then realized I scored at 1″ instead of 1 1/4″. So…had to re-do the invites and now I will be making this style card for quite a while!

Card Recipe
Stamp Set: Wild Cats
Cardstock: Basic White, Thick Basic White, Evening Evergreen
Designer Series Paper: In the Wild
Ink: Crushed Curry, Early Espresso
Lovelies: Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon
Tools: Animal Print Embossing Folder, Big Cats Dies, Layering Circles Dies

Mountain Wildlife

I needed a masculine card for someone I know that has recently had surgery. I bought these dies months ago, but this is the first time I’ve used them. They are super fun and easy and I should’ve been cranking cards out with them sooner! I took my inspiration from another Demonstrator that I happened upon online. Her name is Pam Nichols and you can see her blog post here.

I chose to only have the Designer Series Paper layer on the card base and I popped the die cut up using our Black Dimensionals. I am loving this mountain background for the sweet little deer. I don’t feel like the card needs any extra embellishments, so I left it like this and I am loving it!
