Foliage Thinking of You Card

Hey, there!

I made a card!  (I decided I owed it to myself to get inky!)

Of course, now I don’t want to shift gears and do the medical paperwork I need to do.

I was inspired by various crafting blogs displaying a Simon Says Stamp and Reverse Confetti joint collaboration stamp set (part of Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember…which, as of 8:39 pm on September 9th, is sold out. Wasn’t in my budget anyway!).

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Desert Storm, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, inks – Gina K. Designs Jelly Bean Green, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, VersaMark, die – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Classy Copper, linen thread – Stampin’ Up!.


Pink and Gray Baby Onesie Card

Using up a few of the gray pieces that were left over from another project.

Supplies:  Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Simon Says Stamp, Sugar Pea Designs, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pink Pirouette, Smoky Slate, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Lawn Fawn Manatee, VersaMark, dies – Simon Says Stamp, Sugar Peas Design, embossing powders – Ranger Super Fine Detail white, Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.


Blue Floral Thinking of You Note Card

This is an old wood block stamp that I found in my stash while digging for something else.

I dragged the Salty Ocean Distress Ink pad down the stamp from top to bottom to create the striped texture.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Salty Ocean, VersaMark, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white.


Foiled Citrus Got Real Card

Still trying to find my mojo with the citrus set ( Squeeze the Day ) from Essentials by Ellen.

I embossed a collage with Ranger Super Fine Detail embossing powder, and ran it through my laminator with Rainbow Shattered Glass foil. It came out so bright & shiny (and difficult to photograph!).

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Ranger Emboss It, foil – ThermOWeb iCraft Deco Foil Rainbow Shattered Glass, embossing powders – Ranger Super Fine Detail clear, white.


Many Thanks Butterfly Note Card

I was in the mood for a butterfly.

I am STILL in the mood for a butterfly – I need to venture into one of my craft storage boxes and find an old stamp set. Hopefully, I will find and and make something with it over the weekend.

Supplies:  Stamp – Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Poppy Parade, Soft Sky (retired), Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Essentials by Ellen (scallops), Impression Obsession (butterfly), Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


Bright Floral Wreath Square Cards

 

I wanted to use the Essentials by Ellen “positive mental vibes” sentiment on a wreath card, which led me to bright, happy color choices.

And you know I have to make 2 of anything with lots of stamping – in case I mess up at the last step. Luckily, this time, no snafus for me!

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Gina K. Designs, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, PopTone Razzle Berry, Sour Apple, inks – Hero Arts Fiesta Yellow, Taylored Expressions Lime Zest, Lollipop, VersaFine Onyx Black, wreath builder template – Gina K.
