Mint Macaron

I really love this incolor and will be sorry to see it go.  But we do have some beautiful new incolors to replace the outgoing ones.  Certainly makes it interesting every year.  Fortunately there were no changes to our core colors this year.
I used a mint macaron wash for the background on whisper White card stock and die cut the flowers and leaves with the Stylist Stems Framelits dies on page 42 of the OC.  I used the SAB glimmer paper in addition to the Mint macaron sheer ribbon found on page 178 in the AC.

Nailed it!

I am really disappointed that this set, page 48 of the OC is retiring.  As far as I know, the Build it framelits dies have already been sold out.  Since this is such an awesome masculine set and it went over so well with just about all of our customers around the world, maybe SU will think of designing another set with matching dies in the future.  I am hoping that maybe they will decide to come back with this set.  Wouldn’t that be nice.  Wishful thinking!
Colors I used were Soft Suede, Smokey Slate and Crumb cake.  I added the Urban Underground Embellishments on page 47.

Dragonfly

This was created with the stamp set Dragofly Dreams, page 26 in the OC.  I used black embossing powder and tempting turouoise ink.  I used the Metalic enamel shapes, page 177 of the AC.  One really great set because of the fantastic sentiments and will be very versatile because of it.  In addition, it has its own diecuts, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits on the same page and can be purchased as a bundle with a 10% discount.  This set will be held over, along with the thinlits to the new annual catalog.  However, the bundled discount will not be available after May 31st.

Sale-A-Bration (Last day to get this FREE)

Isn’t this the cutest little treat holder?  I created this with the SAB set, Tasty Trucks, page 12 of the SAB Catalog.  I used the colors Mint Macaron and Daffodil Delight.  I fussy cut the image out and double backed it to make it stronger for both sides.  The center part to create the box is 1 1/2″ x 5 1/8″, scored at 1 1/2″ from each end (long side) and 1/4″ from each side (short side). There are several patterns to make this on You Tube, just put “Tasty Trucks Stampin’up” in the search box and you will find many.

If you spend $50 in merchandise you can get this set.  You can place an order on my site 24-7 but make sure it is before midnight tonight.

Pop-up Balloons!

This card was so much fun to create.  It is not hard to do at all if you have the right tools.  Right now you can get these Balloon pop-up Thinlits Dies, Page 5 of the OC to make this card.  I used the Party Animal DSP on same page.  I used the embossing Folder, Celebrations Duo found on page 40 in the OC and the sentiment inside from DragonFly Dreams, page 26.

Oh Yeah!

Ok, I am obsessed with this stamp set, Nailed it, page 48, oc.  I love the fact that there are die cuts that go with these stamps and I think I have made at least 5 or 6 different cards with them so far.  The possibilities are endless.  What I love about this set are all the embellishments, washi tape and DSP that you can use with it.  These are all listed on page 47 along with the lovely embossing folder, Hexagons Dynamic Textured impressions.  In addition, another stamp set in this same catalog, Urban District can also be combined to make dozens of masculine cards for Dad or the men in your life.  Save 10% by buying the bundle.

Day at the Beach

I just rec’d this set and I really hesitated if I should order it or not.  So glad that I decided to get it.  It is very versatile and the images are really great.  You can find this on page 34 of the OC.  When you live on the coast this set can be very useful.  The DSP that I used in the background is from By the Shore, page 173 of the AC.  I used the sentiment and the birds from the set, High Tide, page 25 in the OC.

Happy Easter

This is a little different take on the set, Easter Message, page 19 OC.  I used Always Artichoke, Wisteria Wonder, and crumb cake inks.  Card stock is Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and base card is Thick Whisper White.
If you have not tried our heavy Whisper White card stock, you are missing a wonderful card base.  It is the best! Sold on page 175 of the AC

Avant Garden

This card was created using the SAB set, Avant Garden, page 5 of the SAB catalog.  I cased this card from Sandi McIver and thank you Sandi for the inspiration.  This technique is called “Black Magic” and I really love it.  You first stamp the images in craft white ink.  Once it is dry I added our White watercolor pencil and then added Melon Mambo, Dafodil Delight, and Old Olive pencils, page 24, OC.  I outlined each image with a white gel pen.

I embossed the copper foil paper, page 47 in the HC, with the embossing folder, Pretty Paisleys, same page.  The DSP is Fruit Stand from the AC on page 173.  In addition, from the same catalog, page 194, I used a die from the Flourish Thinlits, on the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper, page 55 of the HC.  I added that to the sentiment, from the Set, First Sight page 46 of the AC.  The 3/8″ Ruched ribbon can be found on page 178, also in the AC.

The North Pole!

This card we made at our Wednesday morning club.  The set, Christmas Magic, is the perfect set to add to your collection.  It has beautiful images and wonderful sentiments.  If you have been keeping track, I have used it several times in my blog.  I think I will certainly get my money’s worth on this one.

I did the sky on Whisper White card stock, in Dapper Denin, and splattered white craft ink refill, page 180 of the AC, mixed with a little water using a paint brush.  The sentiment is a banner cut out and held with our Bow Paper Clip embellishments found on page 177 in the AC.  I used Marina Mist to highlight the snow drifts, and used a blender pen, to color the images with our classic inks.

Father Christmas

I love this set because it is so vintage looking.  IN this card I used a monochromatic technique which requires different shades of one color.  Here I selected the brown family using Tip Top taupe, crumb cake and soft suede.  The image is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.  The set can be found on page 22 of the HC.

Ho Ho Ho

I painted this tree, from Santa’s Sleigh, on water color paper and then cut it out with the matching Thinlits dies, page 24 of the HC.  Tha Santa was stamped from the set Cookie Cutter Christmas, also on water color paper, and cut out with the matching punch, page 6 of the HC.

I used the negative piece of the cut out tree as a stencil, and sponged the tree on the card front.  I then, popped up with dimensionals, the cut tree and laid it on top of the stenciled image.  The sentiment is from the set Reason for the season, page 34 of the AC.   I thought it needed a little something so I added the Brights Sequins, page 177 in the AC.  It sounds like a lot of work but it was pretty simple.  What do you think?
