Sponged Timeless Tulips One Layer

Hello Everyone ~ Today’s share is a Sponged Timeless Tulips One Layer card.

I was at the hospital all day and night on Friday.  So I did not have time to work on a post.  I am afraid that over the next week or so my posting will be hit or miss.  I will try to do them in batches so if I cannot schedule each night there will be some for a few days.  I managed to make a few cards the other day so I will have a few to post.

I saw a card like this and wanted to try my version.  I began by masking off a 1 1/2″ panel on a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White.  Then using my make up brushes I sponged on Pear Pizzazz on the bottom section.  Next I added some Petal Pink in the middle and finally some Highland Heather at the top.  The masks were removed and I stamped my large tulip 2 times and the small tulip once.  I stamped them in a cascade down the sponged panel.  The stem for the tulips were stamped under the flower.  I created masks for the tulips and added them before stamping the leaves.  When the leaves were finished the masks were removed.  This panel was added to a Highland Heather card base.  To finish the card some rhinestones were added.  Here is the completed Sponged Timeless Tulips One Layer creation.

This pretty Sponged Timeless Tulips One Layer idea is easy and quick. Could be created using various colors.

First Frost Vintage Friend

Hello Everyone ~ I tried my hand at a vintage card with my First Frost Vintage Friend creation.

I got home from the hospital late last night.  I am up early today to go there again.  This will be short and sweet.

I tried a vintage card for today’s share.  I began by taking a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock and Crumb Cake ink and stamped the script from Very Versailles all over it.  I mounted this panel onto a Crumb Cake card base.  I took a 3″ x 4″ piece of Crumb Cake and using Crumb Cake, Merry Merlot, Real Red, and Soft Suede ink I created a vintage stamped card.  This panel was attached to a piece of Merry Merlot card stock a little bigger than the stamped panel.  The Gold metallic edge ribbon was added to the bottom of the image panel.  This panel was attached to the card base using dimensionals.  A bow was also added to the ribbon to complete the First Frost Vintage Friend creation.

Look at this pretty vintage style card. Who would not like to receive this First Frost Vintage Friend creation in their mailbox?

Under My Umbrella Catalog C.A.S.E.

Hello Stampers ~ I have an Under My Umbrella Catalog C.A.S.E. for you today.

I am headed to the hospital again today.  I was going to meet my cousin and drive in with her but I would have to halfway around the Beltway to meet her and then I would have that drive home at night by myself.  I am nervous about driving around in the city so I did some research and they go right by a metro stop.  We have arranged to meet at the stop.  Now I just have to figure out how long it will take me get to the stop I will get on at.

I played with a set in the Occasions catalog I had used before.  The Under My Umbrella stamp set is a fun set.  When I was preparing to leave I stamped a bunch of images that I could use to make cards while I was in Maryland.  The Under My Umbrella set was one of those.  Since I was strapped for time I went looking for ideas in the catalog to see if there was one I could C.A.S.E.  I found a fun image on page 42.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did not have the paper they had used for the card so I went looking at what I have that I could use.  The picture looks like they had used Coastal Cabana to match the designer series paper.  I found a great pattern in the Occasions Catalog with the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper.  This one was the background piece.  In the picture the yellow piece looks like it is vellum.  I did not have any in this color, so I looked at my designer series paper and I found a yellow  piece that would work in the Best Dressed designer series paper.  I added a strip on top of the other designer series paper.  For the circle element I used the raindrops in the stamp set and stamped them in Balmy Blue piece of Whisper White.  I used the largest circle die in the Stitched Shapes dies to cut out the circle.  This was added to the card front on the right hand side of the card using dimensionals.  The umbrella was stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink onto Grapefruit Grove card stock.  The punch was then used to punch it out as well as the handle using Old Olive card stock.  The handle was glued to the circle and the top of the umbrella was added with dimensionals.  To finish the card, a bow using Whisper White baker’s twine was added with glue dots.  Here is the completed Under My Umbrella Catalog C.A.S.E.

This cute card was inspired by a card in the 2020 Occasions Catalog. Get the details for the Under My Umbrella Catalog C.A.S.E. creation.

Timeless Tulips with Masking

Hello Everyone ~ I played with a new bundle with my Timeless Tulips with Masking idea today.

I am sorry this is posting late.  I was at the hospital all day yesterday and when I got home I was exhausted and had not taken my pictures.  I will be taking pictures and working on posts for the next few days so I have something.  I will not have videos for a while as I did not get them made and I am not home to access my video equipment.  I will let you know when I am back and can get some made.

One of the new bundles in the catalog is the Timeless Tulips bundle.  I love tulips at this time of year as they scream Spring to me.  I know we are all anxiously awaiting warmer sunnier weather so maybe this card will bring a smile to your face.  I saw this layout done by someone else and decided to put my spin on it.  I began with a 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White.  I used the small tulip head and inked it up using Mango Melody and then sponging on Real Red.  I stamped them 3 times going down the strip varying the direction the head faced.  I also stamped the image onto post-it notes 3 times and cut them out for masking.  The stems were added using Old Olive and masking the tulip if necessary so the tulips were in the front.  The masks were then applied to each tulip and the leaves were randomly stamped.  This panel was added to a 1 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Real Red card stock.  A piece of 3″ Mango Melody was embossed using the Subtle embossing folder and the stamped panel was added to the right hand side using Tear & Tape since the Mango Melody was embossed.  A 6 1/2″ piece of flax ribbon was used and the center 3 threads were removed.  The piece of ribbon was added to the left hand side of the Mango Melody panel using Tear & Tape.  This panel was then added to a Whisper White card base.  To finish off the card I took the 3 thread I pulled from the middle and tied them loosely around the ribbon near the top.  Here is the completed Timeless Tulips with Masking.

Tulips to me are a sign of Spring. I used some today to create this pretty Timeless Tulips with Masking creation.

Bee Hello Sketch Idea

Hello Everyone ~ I played with the Honey Bee bundle for out sketch today and created my Bee Hello Sketch Idea.

Today is “Thank a Mailman” day!  Make sure you let your mailman/maillady how much you appreciate him/her.  You can always give them a handmade card or make a special holder and give him/her a cookie or two.  They work hard to get our mail to us and we need to let them know we appreciate them.

We have a fun sketch challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge Blog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I knew when I saw this sketch I wanted to use the Honey Bee bundle and Golden Honey designer series paper.  I began by addressing the 2 patterned papers in the background.  I chose the black and gold honeycomb designer and cut the edge following the honeycomb design.  I then chose the black and white bee and beehive to pair with it.  I used some black card stock and cut out the honeycomb die.  I added it to the lower right hand part of the Gold foil paper.  The black and white paper was added on top and then the black and gold honeycomb was added next to it.  This panel was added to a Basic Black card base.   I stamped the beehive using Crushed Curry ink then cut it out.  I mounted it onto a piece of Basic Black and fussy cut around it leaving a small edge.  This element was added to the card front using dimensionals.  The bee was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap of Crushed Curry.  The coordinating die was used to cut it out.  It was added to the beehive with a dimensional.  I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Crushed Curry card stock.  The Classic Label punch was used to punch it out and then reinserted it into the punch and repunched the other end to make it a smaller size.  It was also added to the card base using dimensionals.   Here is my completed Bee Hello Sketch Idea creation.

Isn't this a cute bee card? Do you like the honeycomb element peeking out of the bottom as well as the cut edge of the black and gold designer series paper? Check out the details for the Bee Hello Sketch Idea.
