Love What You Do from Stampin’ Up

Good Morning Ladies ~ do you have the stamp set Love What You Do from Stampin’ Up?

The weather yesterday was gorgeous!  The temperature was perfect and there was a light breeze.  Bijou loved it when I took her out.  I think she even let me know she had to go out more often than normal.  My day was chopped up but I did manage to get some videos made.  I did some planning ahead of time so when I had a few minutes I took advantage and made a video.  That was good since I needed one for today.  The weather today is supposed to be just as nice as it was yesterday.  I will be doing some more planning so I can make more videos later this week.

Today is my 10 Minute Creation video.  I decided to use Grapefruit Grove with Night of Navy.  I liked the combination and I wanted to use some of the Night of Navy gingham ribbon.  Since I needed a card in less that 10 minutes, I opted to use the Love What You Do from Stampin’ Up stamp set.  I loved the simple flower spray and knew I could use it to create a quick card.  I used some tone on tone stamping by stamping the flowers with Grapefruit Grove ink on Grapefruit Grove card stock.  Here is the video showing how I created this card.

 

 

 

Here is the card so you can see the placement of the flowers.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am babysitting the girls this evening so not sure how much I will get done today as I will be in and out again.  Hopefully I can get a few cards made.  Have a Sensational Sunday and what colors would you use to make your version of Love What You Do from Stampin’ Up?

 

Stampin’ Up Hearts Come Home Warmth

Hello Stampers ~ I used a Christmas set for my Stampin’ Up Hearts Come Home Warmth creation.

I had a fun time in my Facebook Live last night.  I showed how you can find inspiration anywhere.  I showed a card I made based on a top in a clothing magazine.  Then I used a dress in the same magazine to create a card Live.  I love how it turned out and will be adding a sentiment and a ribbon to finish it and will post it in my Facebook Group.  I am converting over to a group so that others can share when you are inspired by my idea from the Facebook Live.  Look for the new group on Facebook.  It may come up a couple of times and you want to choose the group one rather than the page.  I would love to see you join the new group as I will be posting all my shares in the group rather than the page.  I will be using the page to advertise my classes and specials.  Come on over and join me!

I will be working on some videos this weekend as I need some more 10 Minute Creation videos.  I need to do some exploring to see what I can come up with.  I look for sketches and other things that might inspire me for my creation.  If you have an idea you want me to use send it my way and I will see what I can do.

I cannot believe I had this card created a week ago and had started this post and then slowly missed posting it.  This is for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.

I really liked how my card turned out so you would think I would have remembered to post it.  I guess it is better late than never.  I was not sure what I wanted to do for my card with these colors.  I did not want to do flowers so I started looking through my catalog.  I saw the Hearts Come Home stamp set and decided to try it.  I began by sponging the Smoky Slate at the bottom in a hill shape (I created the hill shape by cutting some post it notes and setting them down).  Once I had my hill formed I pulled out the houses and stamped them in Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.  I used the stars and stamped them in Pool Party and Daffodil Delight across the top of the card stock in a swoosh style pattern.  To finish off my panel I took the sentiment and masked off the words I did not want, inked the stamp up with Pool Party, and pulled off the post it note and stamped it at the top of the panel.  I added a bow of linen thread then the panel was attached to a Smokey Slate card base.  Here is my completed Stampin’ Up Hearts Come Home Warmth creation.

Oh So Eclectic Fast and Fabulous

Happy Friday Stampers ~ today I have the Oh So Eclectic Fast and Fabulous video for you.

Well I had a heck of a time last night.  You Tube has changed their who look and I could not find the Creator Studio to edit my video for today.  I had to delete the old video and reload it.  I need to do some more exploring and see if anyone else knows how to edit a video you have uploaded previously and scheduled for publishing.  I am hoping someone in the Facebook group has some hints and can help me out.  It was even worse when I searched for how to find the Creator Studio button and they kept telling me to click on the button.  Technology can be so frustrating at times!

The weather is supposed to get a little less hot and humid over the next few days.  We could all use a break as it is very dangerously hot and humid.  Make sure you stay safe and drink lots of water so you are hydrated.  This is the perfect time to stay inside and pull out your supplies and create some cards!

Since it is Friday that means it is time for my Fast and Fabulous video.  This week I used the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and Eclectic Layers thinlits for my Oh So Eclectic Fast and Fabulous creation.

 

 

 

Here is the photo of the card so that you can see the embossing on the background better.

Stampin’ Up Animal Outing

Hello Everyone ~ I played with a new set today for my Stampin’ Up Animal Outing creation.

I hope you had a great day yesterday.  I ended up going on base with Jess and the girls to see the fireworks they had.  They had a few games and bounce houses set up also so the girls had a great time.  The fireworks were good and the girls enjoyed them.  They were tired though as they had spent the morning at the beach also.  I am headed to the yarn shop today to do some more knitting on my sister’s scarf.  When I get home I will be working on some more cards for my Catalog Journey.

Today’s card for the Catalog Journey is one I will be sending to the girls.  I recently got this bundle as I knew I could use it for cards for the girls so I just had to order it.  I had the coordinating designer series paper so I thought I would use a piece of that.  I chose the paper that had the hippos on it as I just loved those butterflies.  I used the dots from the Swirly Bird stamp set to add some interest to the card.  I then cut a strip and attached it to the Melon Mambo layer.  I added a piece of the Pool Party shimmer ribbon to cover up the edge of the paper.  This panel was mounted onto a Whisper White card base.  I stamped the rhinocerous using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used the Smoky Slate alcohol markers to color him in.  To color the bird, I colored him first with a Blushing Bride marker and then added some Melon Mambo along the belly.  To blend them I used the Blushing Bride marker to color over the whole bird again.  If you do this, make sure you scribble the dark color off your light marker so it does not ruin it.  The beak was colored with the Daffodil Delight marker.  I cut the square and then mounted the square onto a piece of Smokey Slate card stock.  I attached the image layer using dimensionals.  Here is the adorable Stampin’ Up Animal Outing rhinoceros.

Petal Palette in Pool Party

Happy 4th of July!

Good Morning Everyone ~for my One Color Wonder today I have Petal Palette in Pool Party.

Do you have some fun plans for today?  Maybe you will be having a going to a barbecue and then later you will be watching some fireworks.  I hope whatever you do you will remember all the servicemen who are not at home with their families as they are protecting our freedom.  These men and women give so much for our country and I am so grateful for all that they do.

Today I will be catching up as I had an appointment yesterday that was a no show and that messed up my plans.  I need to finish the few tasks that were on my list from yesterday.  I am hoping that today I can get some videos made and several cards made.  Wish me luck that I get it all completed today.

My One Color Wonder today uses the Petal Palette stamp set and the color Pool Party.  I used the blender pen to color the image.  Here is the video showing how I created the Petal Palette in Pool Party card.

 

 

 

Here is the photo so that you can see all the details up close.
