Banners For You

Banners For You

Blue Striped Night of Navy and Whisper White make my heart go pitter patter!  This color combination is both gorgeous and spectacular at the same time.

Christine’s Tip: 

  • I like my cards quick and easy, however, keeping things to an absolute minimum works best for my busy schedule.  If you are busy like me and the rest of the world, then keep your color palette to two colors, Whisper White and one other color.
  • Even better, stamp on your pretty papers.  This one, Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper works well to do just that.
  • I love to SAVE 10% by bundling and saving.  This versatile stamp set coordinates with the Bunch of Banners Framelits!

Use the Hostess Code HVXNTG4V  when you place your order in my Online Store and I will send you a package of Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine. Do not use the Hostess Code if you place an order of $150 or more. You will still receive the FREE Gift.

Serene Scenery Wedding Card

Serene Scenery Wedding Card

Green Wedding CPThe Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper has become a fast favorite among my printed papers.  As you can see by this picture, stamping on it is easy.  In case you are wondering, the paper is designed to look like the sun is shining through. Gee!  I’ll bet you thought my photography skills were bad, didn’t you?!

Green Wedding BoxChristine’s Tips:

  • I used the Better Together Stamp Set.  Let me tell you, this set has lots of pretty sayings and font styles.
  • The best part about using the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper, is that you can pick which area of the paper you would like to use on your card.
  • Notice that this card only has two layers:  The base cardstock and the printed paper with the stamped image.  My kind of card.  Quick and easy!
  • I used only Archival Basic Black Ink!

Falling Flowers and Stylized Birthday

Falling Flowers and Stylized Birthday

Another amazing week of getting my stamping in!  Whooo Hoooo!  I had been wanting to use my NEW bundle from Stampin’ Up!  Falling Flowers with the May Flowers Framelits.  Since it is summer, I couldn’t resist the urge the pull out the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  It is fun AND fresh all at the same time.  I love that I can stamp directly onto it with the Stylized Birthday Stamp.  Yes it is a single stamp designed for a large impact.

Nature Inspired Vintage Leaves

Natured Inspired Vintage Leaves!

Nature plays a BIG part when I try to think of a card design!  When I take a run in the morning on our local Rail Trail, the beauty of all the green leaves inspired me to pull out this versatile set, called Vintage Leaves.  The best part is about this set is that it is paired with a set of framelits called Leaflets!

Green LeavesChristine’s Tips!

  • In case you are wondering about the Happy Birthday!  I grabbed it from a NEW stamp set called Feather Together!  I first stamped the Happy Birthday onto the white cardstock in Archival Black ink.  Kind of nearer to the left side of the piece of cardstock.  I wanted to leave room for the popped up leaf on the right.
  • Using two pieces of post it notes, I covered the Happy Birthday and stamped the leaves across the top.
  • Then I did the same thing for the bottom.
  • I then used Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set to add the little black dots.
  • I stamped a second leaf in Pear Pizzazz, die cut it and popped it up.
  • All the leaves were done in Always Artichoke, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.
  • Be sure to stamp your envelopes.  It truly adds a special touch

Quick and Simple One Layer Card Idea!

Work Of Art and Butterfly Basics!

One of my favorite things to do is come up with a One Layer card idea! Just like masculine cards, One Layer cards can be a challenge for most of us.  Here I picked a muted color palette with which to work with.   What I love about Stampin’ Up! is the wonderful coordination of products!

Thoughtful Banners

Thoughtful Banners

Hi Papercrafters!  It has been a nice break to not blog!  Now that summer is here, I can channel my efforts into posting more often.

Creating is more in line with what I love to do.  While I don’t really mind the administrative end of this business, my Etsy Shop takes up alot of my time and so do my honeybees, garden…you get the idea.

Stampin’ Up! came out with a NEW stamp set called Thoughtful Banners.

Thoughtful

I used the NEW 2016-2017 In Colors to create this fabulous little sentiment on the front of the card.  While I did not use the coordinating punches below, this set is bundled for 10% discount as shown below.  The stamp set also coordinates with the Classic Label further down the page.

To add and interesting border, I grabbed the doodle stamp from Tin Of Cards and used that around the edges in the Archival Black.

I am loving the NEW In Colors, they are so fresh and fun.  I know you will like them as well.
