Posting from the Waiting Room


I am sitting in the surgical center waiting for my daughter to head to recovery following her tonsilectomy.  Of course I am using this waiting time blogging my latest card.  :)  And, not just any card, but her get well card I made to give her today when we get home following surgery.  This is also my post for Kylie's Go For Greece Training Group Blog Hop.  That seems appropriate since my daughter really wants me to earn the Greece trip so she can go with me.   I have to agree that would be an amazing start to her Senior year.


This card was make using her favorite DSP from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  This paper happens to be part of the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Sale that is happening through the end of July.  I love the frames that are part of the DSP and can be used as amazing frames for a sentiment.  I put one on the inside of the card.

Check out all the other creative cards by hopping around the world in Kylie's Go For Greece Training Blog Hop.

Christmas in July with Wood Words


Do you already have Christmas on the brain?  I do!!!  I am super excited to see my first sneak peek of the 2018 Holiday Catalog at the end of this month.  In the meantime, I am focusing on designing Christmas cards for several of my July classes.  This card was created for the Christmas in July Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge and it is also the Christmas card I will be using with my featured August stamp set--Wood Words.  I am still on track with my goal of creating at least one Christmas card with each of my featured stamp sets of the month.  I challenged myself starting in May of this year.  We'll see how long I can keep it going.



I love that if you wanted to add the moon or rooster to an ornament for this card, they would also work.  I chose to use the heart and star.  I also love that the Under the Mistletoe DSP has pages with pine branches, so I can attach ornaments to the paper and have them look like they are hanging off the tree.  I used retired baker's twine from a holiday bundle for the ornament strings, but you can use gold thread, ribbon, or who knows what will be available in the 2018 Holiday Catalog???

Video: July Online Class Featuring Pocketful of Sunshine Week 2

It is time for another online class featuring the Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set.  This week we made a fun fold card.  I also demonstrated how to use the Stamparatus to add stamped details on dies cut from plain cardstock.  This method eliminates the need to spend time lining up the framelit perfectly around a stamped image and hoping it does not shift during the cutting process.  Using a template and the Stamparatus also speeds up the process of creating multiples of the same image.


\
The fun fold we created today was an easel card.  Watch the video to see how it was made.  A strip of the Broadway Bound DSP created the stand for the easel.  The pocket on the front of the card has space behind the paper money to add some real money or a gift card or a special note.

Lemons, Limes and Oranges . . .Oh My!

The colors for the TGIF challenge this week are very bright and remind me of the style in the 1980s.  The also make me think of summer and sunshine and cheer.  They also remind me of citrus fruit and considering the Stampin' Up! names of these colors, a citrus fruit inspired card seemed appropriate.

No matter which is your favorite citrus fruit, it is represented here.  I know the title mentions lemons, lime, and oranges, but the color is called Grapefruit Grove and you could also consider it a tangerine if you want.  So, choose your favorite citrus fruit, enjoy it in the sunshine, and remember "Life's Short . . .Squeeze It For All It's Worth!"

Narwhal and Tranquil Texture Waves

 I'm not going to say this is my new favorite color, because I am now, always have been, and probably always will  be a purple girl.  But, I will say this is the color card stock I am drawn to most often and it does go really well with purples, so it all works out great.  :)  The color is . . .Soft Sea Foam.  It also was appropriate for a card depicting the sea and coordinates with the Tranquil Textures DSP that makes up the waves.


The Narwhal image from the retired Quirky Critters stamp set added just the right amount of whimsy for this card.  I love how the Artisan Pearls represent bubbles in perfect coordinating colors.  I carried the waves into the interior of the card to help the interior match the card front and carry on the ocean theme.
