I can’t believe it’s been over 3 months since I’ve posted some stamping. It got so busy with a graduation, an Eagle Scout, end of school, summer camps, etc. I’ve stamped a little here and there but for the most part, I have really missed my stamp room! So it was fun to get back to it yesterday and make these cards with one of my favorite stamp sets. It’s the You Equal Kind set by Wplus9.
And since I had so fun stamping and cutting those cute flowers and leaves, I had plenty for two cards.
Now I’m feeling crazy to go do more stamping!
I LOVE the color Bermuda Bay by Stampin’ Up! This week’s challenge over at Global Design Project is a color challenge that uses it. I’ve never used any shade of peach with Bermuda Bay so I was ready to stretch myself with their suggested color combo using Peekaboo Peach and Early Espresso ! I used the fabulous Paisley’s & Posies stamp set and coordinating dies. And here’s what I came up with for #GDP077!
I ended up really liking the way the colors coordinated together
I’m just crazy about all the cute images of this set and the fun pieces they make for cards
It was fun!
Have a great day!
I’m back again today for the same challenge as last post. It’s this picture! I just love it!
Here it is again. The February Inspiration challenge by Altenew
So today I have another card that is inspired by it. It’s more on the fancy side!
In my last post, I shared a picture of the place we stopped in Florida to snap some pics of the amazing flowers on this building. Here is another picture
So you can see why I couldn’t get enough of this challenge and had to play with it twice! With the extra bit of elaborate style, this card captures the feeling of this picture.
Again, I just love this Painted Flowers stamp set and dies by Altenew! I also used this beautiful Prayers set by Hero Arts for the sentiment.
I clear embossed the die cut image on black paper and mounted it on black foam for a thick look.
Overall, I’m sure you can tell I just LOVED these flowers in Florida, LOVED how the Altenew challenge reminded me of them and LOVED playing with Painted Flowers to recreate the feeling of both.
Have a happy day!
I LOVED the picture that Altenew used for their Inspiration Challenge!
Not only because it’s beautiful as can be – but because it reminds me of a memory I have in my favorite place – Southwest Florida. I had my husband stop in front of this building just so I could get out for a picture because the flowers were so gorgeous!!
So even though it’s been an incredibly busy month, I couldn’t let the month end without participating in this Inspiration Challenge with Altenew!
I’ve actually made two cards for this challenge because my inspiration was overflowing. Today is card one and is on the simpler side of card design.
I used the beautiful Altenew stamp set and dies, Painted Flowers. I stamped them on vellum and colored the back side with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. After cutting them out and carefully adhering them, they added the delicate touch I wanted.
The cover-up die background is by My Favorite Things as is the sentiment.
My next card uses the same stamp set and color scheme but is has much more detail. I can’t wait to share on Monday morning!
A quick post to share this fun card that I made a bunch of
I grouped them together in sets of 5 with envelopes
Then I tucked them in to a sheet protector and sealed all the sides up using the FuseTool
And the sets are complete. I used the Modern Blooms set by My Favorite Things and was able to make a bunch pretty darn quickly using the MISTI tool.
Such fun with stamping!
I always love a good clean and simple card. And the gals over at Case this Sketch always give fabulous inspiration to get started on one with their challenges. Today’s card was inspired by Sketch #204.
I couldn’t think of a color combo, so I also jumped in to another challenge by My Favorite Things. Their current color challenge is really pretty, so I used it to know what colors to grab for my card.
And here’s the card!
I used Painted Flowers by Altenew and Simply Fab sayings by My Favorite Things (a stamp set I grab frequently!) I brushed a Spectrum Noir glitter pen over the flowers to finish it up.
And a Clean and simple card is finished -with a new favorite color combo added to my list.
Have a happy day
Playing with this Wednesday sketch today by My Favorite Things.
I used the Beautiful Blooms stamp set and I couldn’t resist using some Spring colors! I’m sure it’s because of all the snow and gloomy skies where I live.
I love this stamp set and all the pieces that coordinate so well together. Not just pretty flowers, but long stems and foliage.
Another great thing about the set is how MFT has outlines around the flowers and their coordinating layers. Makes it easy to know what images go perfectly together!
Blueprints die cuts are a staple in my collection and were a must in bringing this card together.
The collection I have from My Favorite Things, really is among my favorite things in my stamp stash!
Have a happy day ☺
