Focus on Pretty Peacock

I adore all the new 2019-2021 In Colors, but Pretty Peacock is definitely my favorite. Here’s a quick and easy card focusing on that gorgeous, regal color. The script side of the double sided Designer Series Paper flows perfectly with the lovely font of the sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set. The Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds just the right amount of texture and the Faceted Dots give a sprinkle of sparkle. A naturally charming card!

Are you a SIPper, Casual or Avid Stamper?

In all of craftdom, there seems to be 3 main types of stampers.

There’s the ‘SIP’per     (I’m happy with Stamps, Ink, and Paper)     #simplestamping
SIPThe SIPper Card Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  Floral Essence, Woven Heirlooms
Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray

And the CASUAL Stamper     (I also like Layers, Punches, and Embellishments)
CasualThe CASUAL Card Adds:
Cardstock:  Pretty Peacock, Whisper White
Stampin’ Blends:  Light Old Olive
Lovelies:  2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots

And the AVID Stamper     (Gotta have it all!)
AvidThe AVID Card Adds:
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz
Lovelies:  Metallic Pearls, Silver Metallic Thread
Tools:  Frosted Bouquet Dies, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Paper Snips

My crafting supplies define me as Avid, but I think my style is more like the Casual card. I want everything and I love making cards for family and friends, but if I can’t make a card in under an hour, I get a little bored of it. Anyone else feel the same way?  Whatever your style, just keep on making and giving those beautiful hand-made treasures!

Garden Goodness Good Luck

A coworker is moving on to greener pastures. I wanted to give her a little card and I knew the new Garden Goodness stamp set would be perfect – she is quite a gardener. I remember coming in to work one day and finding a bucket of cherry tomatoes on my desk. So sweet. She will definitely be missed. This adorable 3.5” square card tucks perfectly into an envelope made with the same Designer Series Paper as the background piece on the card.

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.
