Sailing away with Stampin Up's Lilypad Lake bundle

Summertime is finally here and I'm excited to be stamping with some brand new summery stamp sets.

The set that I used today is called Lilypad Lake. Its such a calming and peaceful stamp set, especially those tiny sailboats and soothing ripples of water.

IMG_2693

For this card I used whisper white, balmy blue, so saffron and coastal cabana cardstocks. I colored the sailboats with the same color Stampin Write Markers.

IMG_2696

You can see by this close up that I splattered some ink onto the background. I did this by dipping an aquapainter into some coastal cabana re-inker and tapping it above my cardstock to get the cool splatters.

IMG_2694

I love that there is a "Lakeside" coordinating framelit set to cut out the sun, waves and sailboats. It makes creating a breeze! I finished it off with a lemon lime twist ombre ribbon and a touch of white bakers twine.

IMG_2695

The sentiment is perfect for someone who is not feeling well or going through a difficult time in their lives.

I hope you liked todays Lilypad Lake greeting card.

Until the next time...

Layering Alphabet - You had me at "hello"

I've been eager to share another of my Layering Alphabet / Lined Alphabet cards with you. This one is sort of a copy of the one in the Stampin Up catalog. I did make a few tweaks to give it my own spin.

I love the colors on this card. I used Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Lemon Lime Twist, and Pineapple Punch.

IMG_2688

I stamped the tone on tone flowers in the background with the Varied Vases and Pick a Pennant stamp sets. The adorable hearts are cut with my new favorite framelits, The Stitched Label framelits.

IMG_2683

I used the Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon on this one and the one below, I used the new Pineapple Punch grosgrain ribbon. I can't decide which I like better...

IMG_2681

The words, Friend and You are from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

This is a close up of those adorable little stitched hearts.

Here's a look at both cards, side by side.

IMG_2692

I also used the "negative" pieces that I had left over after I cut out the letters for the cards above and made this card from the left over pieces.

Baby Card with the Animal Outing Kangaroo and Koala

My last post featured the Animal Outing stamp set and today, I'm going to share another card that I made with the same set.

This time I used the sweet kangaroo from the Animal Outing stamp set to make a darling baby card.

IMG_2697

I colored the kangaroo and koala bear with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers, just like I did with the rhino card in my last post. I used the ivory, bronze and crumb cake markers on the kangaroo and the smoky slate markers on the little koala bear. The cardstock colors are So Saffron and the new Gray Granite.

IMG_2700

Once again I used the fabulous Share What You Love designer paper for the background. However, I cannot wait until I get the coordinating Animal Expedition designer paper to use with this set! I also added lots of fun squares to frame this cute duo. The squares were die cut with the Layering Squares framelit set.

IMG_2698

I wrapped it up with a lemon lime twist ombre ribbon and a button from the True Gentleman button assortment pack. Such a sweet card to give either a baby boy or girl!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stampin Up Animal Outing Stamp set.

What an exciting day! The NEW Stamping Up Annual Catalog 2018-2019 went LIVE today! I placed my first party order today as well as my own tiny little order. Just kidding.. it wasn't tiny AT ALL! lol

So anyway, I made this darling card yesterday and wanted to share it with you today. I think this stamp set is adorable! Its called Animal Outing. It also has coordinating framelits, but I don't have them yet..I did however, use the new Stitched Labels Framelits for one of the cool circle cut outs and the cute little heart on this card. Isn't this rhino ever so cute? And how about that little froggie?

IMG_2702

I used the Stampin Blends to color in the rhino as well as all of the other images.

IMG_2704

The designer paper is from the Share What You Love paper pack. I used Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizazz, Powder Pink, Whisper White and Watercolor Papers as well. The buttons are from the True Gentleman button pack which I attached with glue dots and I added some Linen Thread for some texture.

IMG_2701

I stamped a few branches inside the card too. The Stampin Blends colors that I used were the smoky slate pairs, old olive pairs, bermuda bay pairs, pumpkin pie and crumb cake pairs. I used an aqua painter dipped in the lid of the balmy blue ink to fill in the "sky."

IMG_2705

I attached the greeting with dimensionals and the black ink is the Memento Tuxedo black pad.

IMG_2703

Hope you liked my cute little rhino! There's so many amazing stamps and accesories in the New Stampin Up Catalog, that I am having a ball playing with them all! Can't wait to get my next order!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sneak Peek- Stampin Up New Catalog

I am loving the brand new Stampin' Up colors this year. They have added 21 new colors in all!

I had to use the awesome new purples on this card made with the Abstract Impressions stamp set, coming in June.

The colors are Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape as well as Balmy Blue, Soft Seafoam and Granny Apple Green... oh and Gray Granite. I'm so excited to have all these beautiful shades in our new color line.

IMG_2385

Abstract Impression is a 3 step stamp set, so I used the Highland Heather first, stamped it off once onto scratch paper and then stamped onto the card. Next was the Gorgeous Grape which I stamped the same way and I also used the Balmy Blue on the small flower in the stamp set and stamped it in the middle of the rose. I wanted to make the colors pop.

IMG_2388

This is a super simple card to make, especially if you need to make a LOT of them! I used the Gorgeous Grape cardstock for the base and added the Balmy Blue at an angle.

IMG_2387

I also added pearl jewels that I colored with a light old olive Stampin Blend alcohol marker. Did you know that you can color on non porous surfaces with our Stampin Blends? Pretty cool, huh?

IMG_2393

Here's some cards where I added the new white polka dot organza ribbon. I love anything with polka dots. Especially ribbon!

IMG_2392

Layering Alphabet meets Share What You Love

So, you all know how much I love the Share What You Love exclusive bundle thats only available this month.... Well, I love the designer paper so much that I wanted to use it all at once!

I paired it with the New Layering Alphabet dies- they will be available on June 1st. Oh my goodness, I couldn't stop playing with these Alphabet dies. Literally, I have created so many amazing cards with them. I'll will of course share them all on my blog in the coming days.

But, the first one I wanted to share was the one I made with the Share What You Love designer paper.

 I designed lots of beautiful cards with this die and paper. This is the first one I made.

IMG_2087

Aren't the Layering Alphabet dies phenominal?! This is what it looked like at first- and I thought it was too "busy" so I added the letters on top in solid colors to match the paper colors.

IMG_2066

Its so cool how the dies make the points with the letters connected. Here's another look with the solid letters attached.

IMG_2202

I honestly think the Lined Alphabet and Layering Alphabet are my favorite bundle of all time. Its so unique and so fun to create a variety of greetings and personalized cards.

IMG_2200

I popped the letters on with mini dimensionals.

IMG_2201

The colors I used are mint macaron, rich razzleberry, so saffron, powder pink and old olive.

IMG_2203

If this isn't the coolest bundle ever, I don't know what is!

So, once you cut out your letters, there is a negative piece left over. So, of course I made another card from the leftovers.

IMG_2197

This time I also used solid letters over top in rich razzleberry. I embossed them first with the Garden Trellis emboss folder and added a few Share What You Love pearls.

IMG_2198

How fun are all those beautiful papers on one greeting card? So fun!

IMG_2204

Here's a bonus card using all of the NEW In Colors for 2018-2020! Aren't they gorgeous? I also embossed this with the Lovely Floral emboss folder from the Share What You Love Bundle.

IMG_2191

IMG_2205

The Lined Alphabet and Layering Alphabet bundle are a little pricey. At first I didn't want to order it, but I'm totally estastic that I did!! I honestly LOVE it. Wait until you see the other cards I have in store for you!

I've included a video below, by Stampin' Up to that shows how to use the Layering Alphabet bundle. I've also included a supply list- scroll down to the bottom of this post.

You'll be able to order the Layering Alphabet and Lined Alphabet in June. However, the Share What You Love bundle is only available until May 31st, so don't forget to order it, before its too late!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...
