Indescribable Gift for #rrcb199

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was created for the Tickled Pink Challenge #199 over @ Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  My card was chosen as the winner for the #rrcb194 Challenge and now I have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for the this challenge.  Thank you Design Team for choosing my card!  I love to play with the old stamps and it's a real treat to join the team for this fun challenge.

This card is also inspired by my dad.  His birthday is January 27th.  I miss him everyday and have very fond memories of our apple orchard.  This branch is an apple blossom branch to my eye, and its dads' birthday, so of course I have to stamp with it!




***  The Trix  ***

*  Stamp the image with Memento Black Ink and colour in with Flirty Flamingo, Soft Succulent & Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Markers.  *Trix* add a bit of Wink of Stella® Clear Glitter Brush, #141897 to the branch to give it a silvery look.

*  Adhere the stamped 4 x 4 piece of Very Vanilla to a Basic White layer a smidge bigger (1/16th of an inch) and then adhere to a Very Vanilla 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.  

*  Heat Emboss the sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder, #155555 

*  Create a Very Vanilla 1 1/4" x 4 1/4" band of texture with the Stripes from the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder, #157980 and adhere with dimensionals.  Embellish with Festive Pearls, #159963




***  Click here to shop the current products and consider using Wisteria Wishes Stamp Set, #159434, or Garden Birdhouses, #155090 as alternative stamp sets.  




I'm not sure the age of this stamp set, maybe around 2007.  The stamp was an old style clear mount.  Here's a *Trix* if you have one of these old sets, and the 'cling' doesn't grab the clear block as well, try adding a bit of Tombow Removable Adhesive to the cling side, it will grip the clear block.

Something Fancy Stamp Set with Free DSP for #jai637

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge over @ Just Add Ink .  If you'd like to give this sketch a try click the hyperlink, or the image below to visit the blog challenge post and see what you can create.

I tried to create a card with colours from my friends favourite football team, using the Dandy Designs DSP  from Sale-a-bration, #160836.  It's free while supplies last with a $120 order 'til February 28th 2023.  How did I do, can you guess the football team?




***  The Trix ***

* Angles on a card always challenge me a bit, but I think I figured out a *Trix* for this one.  After cutting the angle pieces from two coordinating 4 x 5 1/4 pieces of dsp glue them to a 4 x 5 1/2 piece of vellum before adhering them to the Bermuda Bay cardstock layer.  The Multipurpose Glue allows you to squish them into place evenly on the vellum layer.

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, #160416 on Basic White then cut out with a Stylish Shapes, #158183 circle die.  Adhere the circle to a Bermuda Bay Stylish Shapes banner die.

*  The card base is Night of Navy.  Is your guess correct? The answer is the Miami Dophins - Navy, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, & Mango Melody.  (& yes, when I compared the colours online, I thought Mango Melody was closer to the orange they use than Pumpkin Pie).

Ready To Ride DSP & Something Fancy Bundle for #hssic406 & #gdp378

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the Sketch Challenge over @ Global Design Project and the Inspiration Challenge over @ Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge.  Please click on the hyperlinks or the images below to visit the blogs and enjoy the inspiration.




***  The Trix  ***

*  Keep the colour palette simple - the #hssic406 picture inspired the black, white & red  focus of my card - I love that sweet little kitty in the pic, 'she' reminds me of my childhood cat named Cleo :)  Anyway,.... the card base is Basic Black, with a 1" strip of wrenches from the Ready To Ride Specialty DSP, #160752.  The Basic White Tag is from the Something Fancy Dies, #160425 and the Cherry Cobbler hearts are from the Country Bouquet Punch, #160382.

*  Balance the scale of the patterns - the wrenches on the strip of dsp are large, but the pattern created by the Metal Plate 3DEmbossing Folder, #160766 are smaller, they work together.  I think the rule of thumb when mixing patterns is to vary the size of the pattern.  

*  The extras - tie the tag on the card with Black Bakers Twine, #155475 *Trix* the tag isn't really tied on, it's held in place with dimensionals, but I did tie the twine around the Basic Black, DPS, and embossed layer layer, then through the tag and tied a bow, before gluing it to the card base.  Embellish with hearts - no extra gems are needed - just like the sentiment says 'Nothing Fancy Just Love'

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Jaydee's Clean-and-Simple Challenge over @ The Paper Players Challenge.  The theme is 'Happy Bird Day'.  Please click the hyperlink to visit the blog post and enjoy the inspiration.

I purchased the By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper, #160434 as part of the Paper Share I've provided for my customers, but I don't have the Seaside Bay Stamp Set, #160436 so I cut this sweet little bird out of the paper - neat eh!  And yes, I think I'm going to get the stamp set.  




***  The Trix  ***

*  Cover the front of the Night of Navy cardstock with a piece of dsp, a smidge smaller (a 1/16th of an inch)

*  Adhere a 1 3/4" x 3  3/4" piece of coordinating dsp from the pack, *Trix*  trim the bottom edge to match the flow of the waves on the dsp.  

*  Stamp a sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, #160416 with Night of Navy Ink and die cut using a Stylish Shapes Die, #159183.

*  Adhere a piece of Balmy Blue & White 1/2" Variegated Ribbon, #160448 to the back of the die and then adhere it the card base with dimensionals.

*  Fussy cut a bird from the paper and adhere with dimensionals.  Embellish with gems of choice.

Something Fancy & Like An Animal Specialty DSP for #fms569

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Jacquie's Sketch Challenge over @ Freshly Made Sketches.  Please click the hyperlink or the challenge image below to visit the blog and enjoy the challenge.  When I first saw this sketch I was sure I'd create a scene to frame in with a great sentiment on the bottom but then I opened the Like An Animal Specialty Designer Series Paper, #160841 and wow!

I love this paper so much I had to make it the star of the show!  Each piece has a shiny side,  and I think I'll be making a few special bags and such, stay tuned :)




***  The Trix  ***

*  Frame the fabulous 3 3/4" x 5 " piece of dsp with a Smoky Slate cardstock layer a smidge bigger, (1/16th of an inch)  then adhere to a Basic Grey card base.

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, #160416 using Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock then die cut with a Something Fancy Die, #160424.  

*  Adhere two pieces of ribbon to the label before adhering to the card.  I used the Smoky Slate Textured Ribbon, #155813 *currently available on the Clearance Rack woohoo!* & Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon, #152463  *Trix* apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the label die and add the ribbon to it.  Adhere both to the card.  Embellish with the Classic Matte Dots, #158146.

Warm Welcome for #pp623

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Claire's fun  Colour Challenge over @ The Paper Players.  Use Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, Highland Heather & White!  Please click the hyperlink or the image below to visit their blog challenge and soak in the inspiration!

I love to create a few all occasion cards at the beginning of the year.  This one is a baby card or a Welcome Little One card using the Warm Welcome Bundle, #160704 from the new January - April 2023 Mini Catalogue.




***  The Trix *** 

*  Colour Blocking - create a bold band of colour with scraps of cardstock, it doesn't matter if they're the same size.  

*  Proportion - I tried to match the sizes of scraps to the size of the presents, and add the sentiment near the bottom, the widest part, hoping for some balance and visual continuity.

*  Repeat the colours - Stamp the presents from the Warm Welcome Stamp set, #160698 with Memento Black ink, then colour with Stampin' Blends Markers.  Stamp the sentiment with Orchid Oasis.  Colour Rhinestone Basic Jewels, #144220 with the Stampin' Blends Markers.  Add a piece of Parakeet Party Baker's Twine, #159195   

*  Create a focal image base with a scalloped die from the Scalloped Contours Dies, #155560.  I used the Warm Welcome Dies, #160703 to die cut the presents and popped them up with dimensionals.

Country Floral Lane Money Holder for #tgifc403

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge over @ TGIFChallenges this week.  Please click the hyperlink to visit the challenge.   These sweet bicycles from the Country Floral Lane DSP from the January - April 2023 Mini Catalogue, caught my eye for the long rectangular strip on the card.  I created a Belly Band with the greeting that for the vertical rectangle of the sketch.



***  The Trix ***

* Create a money holder with a 7 x 10 piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock scored at 3 and 6 1/2.   Fold in the 3" section to create a pocket for the money, adhere with glue on the sides only.  *Trix* use a punch to cut a space to pull our the cash :)  

*  Let the pattern on the dsp dictate the size.  I had a 6 x 6 piece of dsp from our Paper Share, I loved the floral heart border above and bellow the line of bicylces, so the dsp became a 3 1/8 x 6" band.  

*  Use up the cardstock scraps - the belly band is a 1 1/4" x 10 piece of Sweet Sorbet, (cut when I created the 7 x 10 card base)  The scrap Petal Pink dsp is an 1/8 of an inch smaller than the Sweet Sorbet belly band.  The hearts are from scraps of complimentary dsp and cut out with the County Bouquet Punch, #160382

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set, #158701 with Sweet Sorbet ink.  Embellish with 2022 -2024 In Color™ Matte Decorative Dots

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set.

This month I've been experimenting with tone on tone colouring.  The result is a pile of die cut images that I've mixed and matched to create slightly different Customer Thank You cards.  I love how ink colours look different on different colours of cardstock.  What's your favourite?  Mine is Flirty Flamingo, :)
