Creating with Bundles

Delightful Day Note Cards using Scalloped Note Cards

SU Scalloped Notecards

 

I love the new scalloped note cards and envelopes.  They make creating a little note quick and simple. Using just ink and stamps, you can make cute note cards, too! 

 

This set of note cards is dressed up a little, but still come together quickly.  They use the new Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes paired with the Delightful Day stamp set. This stamp set is perfect for making tags, but is so versatile, it works great for cards, too! 

 

DELIGHTFUL DAY BUNDLE

 

These note cards come in a pack of 20, in 4 colors, with 20 matching envelopes. They are one of the hidden gems in the new Annual catalog!

 

To create this card:

  • cut a 3/4" x 5" piece of designer paper to coordinate with the note card color

Stamp the leaves across the front of the note card, followed by the flowers. After stamping the leaves, color them in with a coordinating Stampin' Blends marker.  Old Olive ink and Blends marker where used on today's projects.  Add a strip of designer paper along the bottom inside edge of the note card to peek out from under the scallop.  The stitched edge dies from the Stitched Labels Dies adds the perfect element of detail to the front.  Add any sentiment of choice.

 

STITCHED LABELS DIES

 

Stampin' Tip:  The White Stampin' Chalk marker is a fun way to add details to colored cardstock or note cards.  This was used on the Balmy Blue note card.

Coloring Fun with Bloom & Grow

The Bloom & Grow stamp set with coordinating Budding Blooms dies.

 

Welcome back!  Today I have another project featuring the Bloom & Grow stamp set, and I paired it with the coordinating Budding Blooms dies.  Together these are fantastic!  I have stepped up this card, adding layers and embellishments.

 

The flowers are so fun to color!

 

The floral spray used on this card is so fun to color.  It is large enough to do some shading if you choose, but small enough to take just a couple of minutes to complete.  I chose to use Stampin' Blends, however, Aqua Painters with ink, Pigment Sprinkles, or watercolor pencils would also work great!  This could also be stamped directly onto designer paper and die cut for a quick accent piece.

 

Silver Metallic Thread and Rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch!

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Perennial Essence designer paper
  • Cut a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" piece of vellum

 

After coloring the floral spray, I embossed the vellum with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  The sentiment was cut using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  This was all layered together with dimensionals, and some Silver Metallic Thread and Rhinestones were added to finish it off.

New Catalog Blog Hop with Bloom & Grow

Simple stamping with the Bloom & Grow stamp set!

I am happy to be here today with a project using brand new items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  What's even more exciting is I am hopping with some of my Luv 2 Stamp team members!  We are each featuring a bundle from the new annual catalog.  You may have just visited Patty Bennett at Patty Stamps, where she featured the Floral Essence bundle.  Hop along with all of us!

 

This bundle was the first one I chose to create with.  The more I used it, the more I loved it.  The sentiments are perfection!  And the best part - it's so simple!  I love the clean look, and how the colors pop. I call this Simple Stamping!  

 

Mix in little pops of color to add interest to your project!

 

The Bloom & Grow stamp set is part of a bundle, pairing perfectly with the Budding Blooms dies.  I did not use the dies on this project, but they work so well together, I wanted to share them with you.

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" for the base
  • cut a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" for the layer
  • cut a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock 1" x 3 3/4" for the sentiment

I stamped the florets in Highland Heather ink, than added pops of color with Gorgeous Grape and Pineapple Punch, by carefully inking one floret, and randomly stamping throughout the cluster.  To do this, use washi tape or masking tape as a mask on your stamp, or just carefully ink the stamp on the edge of a stamp pad. 

 

I hope you enjoyed today's project!  Stop back Monday for a stepped up project featuring this bundle!

 

Now hop over to Cindee Wilkinson at Just Sponge It for a beautiful project using the To A Wild Rose bundle.  Or head back to Patty Bennett at Patty Stamps to see the Floral Essence bundle.  You can also visit Kurstan del Rosario at Stamp with Kurstan to see the Come Sail Away bundle.

Color Fusers Blog Hop June 2019

Color Fusers Blog Hop June 2019

 

Welcome back!  It's hard to believe June is here and it's time for another Color Fusers blog hop.  We hop on the first Monday of each month.  Thanks for joining us!

 

 

Color Fusers June 2019:  Blueberry Bushel, Real Red, Gray Granite, Black

This month's challenge is modern and contemporary.  I ran with this and used some scraps to create fun colorful circles.  Not only is this a great way to use some of your scraps, but it's fast and easy.

 

The stamp set I used is one of my go-to sets for birthday cards, Broadway Birthday.  I love the large bold sentiments and solid images.  It has coordinating dies as well, making it even better!  Now this stamp set and the coordinating dies will continue into the new catalog, however, it is currently bundled at a discount, which will end today! 

 

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a Thick Whisper White card base at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a Whisper White layer 4" x 5 1/4", and emboss with the Subtle Embossing Folder

 

To make the colorful circles, I pulled scraps of the 4 colors we are working with this month and adhered them onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I used the circle die from the Broadway Lights Framelit set to die cut them, creating circles with varying color.  The 1" circle punch would work as well.  Arrange the circles onto the card front and add your sentiment.

 

Making Colorful Circles

Well Said meets So Hoppy Together

The Well Said bundle paired with the FREE So Hoppy Together stamp set.

 

Today I am sharing one of my favorite bundles from the 2019 Occasions catalog called Well Said.  This is a huge stamp set, with a coordinating die set called Well Written.  This bundle allows you to create custom sentiments and greetings galore for any project.  And I love the script font of the dies!  They can be purchased separately, or in a bundle at a discount!

 

 

I have chosen to pair it up with the So Hoppy Together sale-a-bration stamp set.  It's adorable, and you can get it FREE through the end of this month with a qualifying order.  Do you love FREE stuff?  

 

The Well Written dies are not only versatile, but so easy to customize.  I was quickly able to create the perfect play on words for my sentiment by cutting out the 'a' in happy, and replacing it with the 'o' cut from the love die, to make this punny greeting.

 

Easily create custom sentiments and greetings with the Well Said bundle.

 

To recreate this card:

  • Cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a piece of Call Me Clover designer series paper 3 3/4" x 5"
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"

 

I used a sponge brayer with Pool Party ink to add a bit of color along the bottom edge of the Whisper White layer, than added the lily pad, which was cut using the Layering Ovals framelits.  After stamping the frog, I colored him with Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Punch Blends, did a little fussy cutting, and put him on his lily pad with a dimensional.  A Flirty Flamingo flower cut from the Well Written dies was the perfect accent on the lily pad.

 

The Well Said bundle is quickly becoming a staple in my card making.  Click on the link below to get your bundle today, and you can choose the So Hoppy Together stamp set FREE as your Sale-A-Bration item!  While you are in my store, gather the rest of your supplies to create a punny card, and share it with me.  I would love to see what you create!

 

Thanks for hopping by!
