Back On Your Feet Trio – Card 3

Today’s card features the sad, upside down turtle from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on page 83 of the Annual Catalog. Yesterday’s card featured a poor little sloth, which you can see here. Card 1 from two days ago is a giraffe tied in a knot. You can see that card here. I can commiserate with this little turtle. Sometimes we get turned upside down and all we can do is SIGH. He’s stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Stampin’ Blends. I thought the Arrows Embossing Folder was a good match for this card. I love the greens and browns together and enjoyed dusting off some retired Always Artichoke cardstock and ink and a super old roll of Old Olive ribbon.

Back On Your Feet Trio – Card 2

Today’s card features the poor little sloth from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on page 83 of the Annual Catalog. Yesterday’s card featured a giraffe tied in a knot. You can see that card here. Tomorrow’s card will have the upside down turtle. This sad, hurt little sloth can’t make it out of his little tree. Poor thing! He’s stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Stampin’ Blends. The Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder is embossed on the Old Olive layer. It coordinates perfectly with the leaves on the stamp as well as the wooden leaves from the Sale-a-Bration Butterfly Elements that were available at the beginning of this year.

Back On Your Feet Trio – Card 1

Who doesn’t love a sweet card when you’re feeling down, under the weather, or have an owie? The Back On Your Feet stamp set on page 83 of the Annual Catalog fits almost any situation. There’s a tied up giraffe, hurt sloth and upside down turtle. I’ll be sharing cards made with the sloth and turtle in the next two days, but for now, here’s the poor little giraffe. He’s stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Stampin’ Blends. I thought it would be cute to add the braided linen trim to correlate to the knot. It’s difficult to see in the photo, but I also used the Subtle Embossing Folder on the black layer. Just look at that face – so sad! This could definitely cheer someone up!

Daisies by the Bay

Over and over I tell myself that I don’t need any more flower sets. But the new Daisy Lane stamp set kept calling my name. And for there to be two Daisy punches now just takes the cake! No…don’t get it!  But it’s so pretty! No…you don’t need more flowers! But there are TWO punches that match! Ugh. Yes. You know me too well. I am the happy owner of the Daisy Lane set as well as the punches and I have no regrets.

Daisies by the Bay
I have 6 awesome ladies that join me for stamping fun 7 times throughout the year (my stamp club) and I just knew we would be stamping daisies! The flowers are each stamped twice and punched out. Before gluing the two layers together, we used the Bone Folder to curl each petal downwards. The flowers are popped up on Dimensionals to keep the curl from going flat. Such a neat touch!

Stamp Set:  Daisy Lane
Cardstock:  Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody, Whisper White
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody
Lovelies:  Gold Faceted Gems
Tools:  Daisy Punch, Medium Daisy Punch, Bone Folder

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.
