Colorful Seasons Green Leaves Card

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

I’m a little behind with this post.

We’re camping at Heaton Bay Campground near Dillon Reservoir.  We have granddaughter Molly with us; it’s so much fun to have her. 

We went down early Monday morning for Lisa’s surgery and came back up Tuesday morning.  I just face-timed with her and that made me feel good.  She’s doing so well all things considered.

The card I’m showing you is the one that I’ll use for my Thailand trip swap.   It is so versatile as it has something for all seasons in it. I used two old techniques that we haven’t used in awhile:  the marbles technique and the baby wipes technique.

 

I don’t  seem to have my usual tools  with me so the directions won’t be quite as good this time.

Colorful Seasons Green Leaf Card

Colorful Seasons stamp set, p. 147, 143726, $27.

Garden Green card stock, p.185, 102584, $8 or assorted, 131192, $8.

     8 ½ x 5 ½”

     2” strips for punching

Whisper White card stock, p. 185, 100730, $9 or assorted, 131191, $8.

     5 ¼” x 4”  2 each

     2” strips for punching

Garden Green pad, p. 185, 126973, $6.50.

Garden Green reinker, p. 185, 102059, $3.75 or Regals reinkers, 131169, $32.

Pear Pizzazz reinker, p. 186, 131160, 3.75 or Subtles reinkers, 131170, $32.

Burlap ribbon, p. 198, 141487, $7; or 3/8” Garden Green 3/8” stitched satin ribbon, $8.  The Garden Green ribbon is a little bit easier to work with.

Pretty Label punch, p. 207, 143715, $18.

Gold Faceted Gems, p. 197, 144141, $5.

The marble technique is what I used for the background.  I put a few drops of Pear Pizzazz reinker (maybe 5) into a wood stamp case (they’re available but not in catalog) and dropped in 3 marbles.  I ran the marbles through the ink until I thought the marbles were coated.  I then put a little piece of snail on the back of my white cs and taped it to the lid of the case.  Then I closed the case and ran the marbles over that.  Then I repeated with another case and Garden Green reinker.

To stamp the leaf bases, I put several drops of each of the above colors onto a baby wipe and that became my stamp pad.  (The colors bleed together on the baby wipe.)

I then stamped the leaf outline over the large leaves with Garden Green ink.

For the greeting, I punched one label from the Whisper White and two from the Garden green.  I then “surrounded” the white label with two green labels.  Then I attached it with dimensionals.

This will be a beautiful card using Fall colors, too.  For this one, I wanted Spring/Summer.

Enjoy this card; it’s really fun to use these old techniques again.

Please let me know if you have any questions; I love to talk stamping.

Hugs, Pat

Colorful Seasons Lawn Chair Card

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

I need to apologize as I’m a little late in posting this.  Yesterday was my birthday and we were celebrating all day.  We had a great day!

Today I have one of the cards that we did at our BOGO event on Friday.  It used the new Colorful Seasons bundle along with its matching Colorful Theory designer paper. I love this set as it has year-round images.

Layering Ovals Framelits, p. 214. $35.

Seasonal Layers Thinlits, 143751, $33.

We sponged Flirty Flamingo ink on to the top of the Color Theory designer paper.  The only thing you need to be cautious of is only put glue on the part of the chair that sticks to the white cs.

If you want to place an order, please this host code KJGXGPVS.  If your order is over $150, please don’t use the host code so that you can reap the host rewards for yourself.

I think this is a great card and you’ll have so much fun with it.

Hugs to each of you, Pat

Hot Air Balloon Card

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

I have another card for you.

This time it’s the Lift Me Up hot air balloon card.

 

Lift Me Up stamp set, p. 58, wood 142893, $29; clear 142896, $21.

Flourishing Phrases, p. 24, wood 141531, $49; clear 141534, $37—for that cute little “Hello”.

     5” x 3 ¾”

     5 ¼” x 4”

     1 inch strip for clouds

Daffodil Delight card stock, p. 186,  119683, $8; or assorted 131190, $8.

Up & Away Thinlits, p. 216, 142748, $30.

Seaside Embossing Folder, p. 210, 141481, $8.50.

A couple of tips for this card:  the Scotch tape is used to hold the balloon pieces together before you attach them to the black balloon itself.  We turned the balloon colored pieces backwards, assembled them and then put a piece of tape on their back side to hold them together.

Also, the clouds are sponged on the edges with Smoky Slate ink. The only piece that has a dimensional under it is the Hello cloud.

Enjoy this card.  It’s fun to do with all of the bright colors.

If you want to place an order, please this host code KJGXGPVS.  If your order is over $150, please don’t use the host code so that you can reap the host rewards for yourself.

Adorable Note Cards

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

I think Summer might actually be on its way.

I have a couple of things to tell you today.  May 31 is the last day for you to order from the current regular catalog and the Occasions mini catalog.  Please don’t miss out on something that you’re wanting from either of those catalogs.  Once they’re gone, they are gone for good.

The second thing that I want to tell you about is something that’s been in our catalog for several years.  I’ve only used them a little bit in the past, but I’m now in love with them.  They are the Whisper White Note Cards shown on page 195 of the new catalog.  There are 20 cards & envelopes in a package for $6.  And, Very Vanilla Note Cards are also available in the new catalog.  (The white ones are still available in the current catalog.)  Each card is 5” x 3 ½”.

I’ve been making lots of them as thank you notes using the Delightful Daisy designer paper on page 188 of the new catalog.  I’ll include pictures of some of the ones I’ve made, but I want to give you the measurements.  As mentioned above, the cards are already cut and scored for you.  The solid piece of card stock is 4 ¾” x 3 1/4”; the designer paper is 4 ½” x 3”.

For the envelope flap, I cut the designer paper 6” x 2”.  I then put quite a bit of snail on the envelope flap (outside) and a tiny strip of snail in the middle of the back of the designer paper and attach the two.  Then I just trim around it.  They are so cute.

If you place an order before the end of May, please use this hostess code:  2G3HBFMW    SHOP NOW     I’ll  start another hostess code for June.

If your order is $150 0r more, please don’t use the host code so that you can collect the host rewards for yourself.

Here are pictures of some of the note cards I’ve made.

 

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs to each of you, Pat

Fresh Fruit Peach Card

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

Before I show you today’s card, I want to be sure that you can see how to navigate this site.

There’s a narrow bar (reddish or purplish) under the picture of the card spread.  It’s fairly narrow and kind of hard to see as it’s fairly small.  (Jim has tried to change the bar, but hasn’t been successful yet.)  Anyway, when you move your cursor across that bar, you’ll see the different things you can click on.

If you want to be notified whenever I create a new post, you can fill in your email address in a box on the right side.

Okay now for today’s card.  I love this card, set, and designer paper.  When I first saw the set, I wasn’t really interested, but now I love it.  The set and designer paper are retiring, but they’re still available at the moment.

If you place an online order using the host code:   2G3HBFMW    SHOP NOW       This 18% offer ends today, May 12.

The peach card is one of my favorites from all of the cards that I’ve made and /or demonstrated in all of my 18 years as a demonstrator.

Best Birds Card

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

May 5 was my 18th anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  It has been SO much fun.  I’ve met wonderful people, traveled the world, and made some extra money. 

In honor of this anniversary, I’ll give you an 18% discount on any one item on an online order when you use the hostess code.  That means that I’ll mail you a check for the 18%.  To place an order visit www.stampinlady.com or click on this link and use this hostess code:   2G3HBFMW    SHOP NOW  

This offer is good for 5 days and will end on Friday, May 12.  It cannot be combined with any other offers that I’ve put out.  It’s a fun way for me to celebrate my anniversary and give all of you a big thank you for your support.  Thank you so much!!!!

I want to share this beautiful bird card with you.  We made it at a recent event and everybody loved it.

As I’ve said before, I have very little talent, but I’m very good at copying.  So, probably most of this card is CASEd.  (That stands for Copy & Share Everything.)

It’s classy and pretty easy.  It does have a little coloring, but other than that, it’s very easy.

 

BEST BIRDS CARD

Best Birds Bundle, p. 53, #142315, $43

Crumb Cake card stock, p. 170, #120953, $8 or assortment, #131191, $8

     8 ½” x 5 ½”

Calypso Coral card stock, p. 171, #122925, $8 or assortment, #131193, $8

     5” x 3 ¾”

     Scrap

Whisper White card stock, p. 170, #100730, $9 or assortment, #131191, $8

     4 ¾” x 3 ½”

     5” x 3 ¾”

     5 ½” x 4 ¼” (inside)

Chocolate Chip pad, p. 170, #126979, $6.50 or assortment, #140933, $32.50 (6 pads)

Calypso Coral pad, p. 171, #126983, $6.50 or assortment, #131185, $54.50 (10 pads)

Soft Suede pad, p. 170, #126978, $6.50 or assortment, #140933, $32.50, (6 pads)

Watercolor Pencils, Occasions, p. 24, #141709, $16 (13 pencils)

Blender Pens, p. 180, #102845, $10 (3 blender pens)

Diamonds (retired but coming back reconfigured in the new catalog, available June 1)

Dimensionals, p.182, #104430, $4

Big Shot for cutting out the Buds & Blooms framelits—part of bundle above

Big Shot, p.190, 143263, $110

The background was stamped with Soft Suede to keep it fairly light.  You could probably use the Chocolate Chip pad and stamp off.  The bird and branch are stamped with the Chocolate Chip pad and then colored with the colored pencils.  Then it’s carefully blended with the blender pens.

The reason I say carefully is that Chocolate Chip ink is not a permanent ink and it could smear.  The permanent colors are Archival Basic Gray & Archival Basic Black.  They just didn’t seem to fit the bill this time.

The only other thing that’s a bit different is on the leaves.  We first colored them with the Old Olive colored pencil and then went over it with the Cucumber Crush marker.

I hope you enjoy this card; it’s a fun card and made with a bundle that I hadn’t used.  The stamp set & framelits are coming back in the new catalog, but they aren’t bundled so you lose out on that 10% discount.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I love to talk stamping.

Hugs to each of you, Pat
