Garden In Bloom – Catalog CASE

 

My mission is to always try and make simple cards!  I found this card on page 139 of the Annual Catalog and set about to recreate it!  In case you missed it, (CASE, Copy And Share Everything) 

Of course, I don’t have the Blooms and Wishes stamp set, yet!  But I wanted to challenge myself to use something in my collection that would be similar.  I had to make a baby card and don’t have any of the baby stamps!

139The flower from Blooms and Wishes was similar to the flower from Garden in Bloom.  Don’t be afraid to check out your collection of stamps to see if you have something that would work.

I also grabbed my Banners For You stamp set as that had some leaves and dots that were perfect for the look I was trying to achieve.  The Congratulations On Your New Arrival came from the Better Together stamp set.  Check that one out because there are sentiments for many special occasions.

Stampin’ Up! Work Of Art!

Stampin’ Up! Work Of Art!

Two weeks ago, I was in my studio glancing through Etsy and I came across a card that was printed on a computer.  However, my wheels started to spin and I thought I could loosely recreate the background by using the long strip from Work Of Art!  Now, I know many of you do NOT like to mass produce cards, however, I have a plethora of birthdays that I need to send cards out for and those NEW In Colors where just calling my name.

birthdayThese are just a few of the cards I made.  My son’s birthday has come and gone and I didn’t get the picture of his card.  Suffice it to say that since he is in the Air Force, it was based on their colors.  Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Basic Gray.

My daughter’s boyfriend’s birthday was a few days later.  I produced a card with camouflage colors, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand.

I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and the Classic Label punch for the birthday sentiment.  If you notice carefully on the right side, I masked the area where I stamped Happy Birthday for something a little different.

These cards were absolutely fun to make, especially when you are looking for different color combinations.  I went straight to my Pinterest Account and went to my Color Combination Board for inspiration.

Stampin’ Supplies:

  • Work Of Art Stamp Set     (134114)    $22.00
  • Thoughtful Banners            (141614)    $21.00
