Layers of Kitty Hellos

Aren’t these kitties just too cute? It’s one of those stamp sets I rarely turn to. Why? I have no idea. These kitties make me smile. I used some retired (ret) Designer Series Paper that I was hoarding and the card came together quite quickly. I couldn’t decide which color I liked best for the kitties, so I tried out a few options. I’m leaning towards the gray, but would’ve liked it a little lighter. You can’t see it in the photo, but all the flowers have Wink of Stella on them. The shimmer is so pretty in real life. Next time I feel like coloring, I will dust off the coordinating set Bella & Friends and color in some cute puppies!

Everything is Rosy Thinking of You

From the moment I set my eyes on the Everything is Rosy product medley, I was in love. The Night of Navy ribbon edged in metallic Rose Gold and the Designer Paper with all the Rose Gold foiling is so beyond gorgeous. I have seen a lot of samples online, but have not seen one yet that included the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint. That paint becomes absolutely magical when you add it to a Stampin’ Spritzer with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol! I covered the Night of Navy layer in spritzes of shimmer. The kit comes with Rose Gold adhesive backed mirror embellishments, but I decided to use my hand-held paper punch (it’s a really old one from my junk drawer) and punched circles out of the Rose Gold Foil Paper after die cutting out the gorgeous leaf spray. Can you see the Rose Gold foiling on the Designer Series Paper sheet? That foiling is on one side of every sheet! I am in love with the Night of Navy ribbon, but since the background layer is that color, I decided to play it up with the lovely Melon Mambo Ruched Ribbon. It is so soft and easy to work with. I was able to tie a bow on my first try! There are several sweet sentiments to choose from in the stamp set (see below), but I chose to use one from the Paper Pumpkin kit Friends of a Feather (October 2018) because I’m sending this to a sweet person that needs some cheering up.

Classic Class of 2019

I was commissioned to make a card for a college graduate. Back when my middle child graduated High School, Stampin’ Up! offered a “Class of 2015” stamp. Obviously after using it for that occasion, it started collecting dust. I spied it and thought, “Hey! I should cut the stamp apart!” And that is what I did. I finally thought outside the box. I also decided to use gold foil for the year and I think it is a great fit with this card. I used a little-known die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits collection that cuts a series of small circles. Using this on the gold foil paper made the circles look like metal brads and I just love the effect! The Take Your Pick Tool was a lifesaver in picking up those little circles and placing them on the glue dots.

#JOSTTT005 Balmy Tropics

The Facebook group I belong to, The Joy of Sets, has a fun monthly Tic Tac Toe challenge blog (check it out here) and this time around, I actually achieved TWO rows! I was having a difficult time trying to decide what to do at first. But once I decided to stop overthinking it, it just started to flow. I love all the layers on this card and how there is such depth – some things are popped up on one Dimensional, some on two and the shaker component is made with the Foam Adhesive Strips. I can’t stop shaking it – I love the sound of the diamonds in it! Interactive shaker cards are the best!

Here’s the #JOSTTT005 May Challenge:JOSTTT005 Challenge

I did Green-Flowers-Stripes and Stripes-Blue-Emboss and I’m feeling so accomplished!

Woven Heirlooms Sneak Peek

To say I’m in love with the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper is an understatement. This color combination conjures up fond memories of my grandparents. As a teen, I would spend almost every weekend at their house. If you walked into my Grandfather’s bedroom or bathroom, you would be surrounded in shades of Seaside Spray. If you walked into my Grandmother’s, you would be immersed in shades of Rococo Rose. These two new 2019-2021 In Colors evoke so much nostalgia, you’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them in upcoming samples. Scroll down to see all five of the new In Colors. I stamped the sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Terracotta Tile. I used 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots for a little sparkle. The pièce de résistance is the exquisite Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon. All of these lovely items will be available to purchase when the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live on June 4th. Mark your calendars for the evening of Monday, June 17th if you’d like to see this card in person!

Stitched Lace Die & a Butterfly

Sorry about my absence on here…I had a visit from an awesome person that I don’t get to see very often. His arrival even trumped me opening an Annual Catalog pre-order box!  Today’s card is so simple, but looks stunning with the new Stitched Lace Dies that I know you will want – and you can get your hands on them when the catalog goes live on June 4th. Or, for even more fun, mark your calendar for my Annual Catalog Kick-Off Open House on Monday, June 17th and you can see it in real life. I’ll have more details for you coming up.

So back to this die set. It has one piece that is 5 7/8” x 4 5/16”, which will cover a complete card front. Then, there is an awesome second piece in which you can cut the scalloped shape shorter, either vertically or horizontally. When I made this card, the row I die cut out became a pretty doily style strip that I’ll use on another card. Oh my! And it even has a coordinating stamp set!

This card also uses a new 2019-2021 In Color called Rococo Rose. (Hunter said it sounded like a rapper’s name…hahahaha!) I love how soft and muted it is. So pretty in real life. (Please note the ink color and cardstock color are the same. Unfortunately, I am terrible at taking pictures. I definitely need Sydney’s camera skills.)  I also used the Butterfly Duet Punch and coordinating Butterfly Gala stamp set that were introduced in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Perfect Simplicity!
