Card Sketch Challenge – Birthdays are the Best Days

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

This is the last card I made on Saturday using the Card Sketch Challenge

Birthdays are the Best Days

I love Sketch Challenges…the work is already done for you. All you need to do is work out what colours and Designer Series Paper or stamps you want to use.

If I’m stuck for ideas and not sure what to do I will go back to Sketches that I have saved on my computer or on Pinterest and use them for my inspiration. Ideas for cards and Scrapbook pages can come from all sorts of places. The Stampin’ Up! ® Catalogue is a great source of layout ideas.

For my card below I have used products from the Forever Greenery Suite Collection to create my card. I have kept it very simple using the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper as the main feature and used a Gold Hoop Embellishment to highlight the sentiment.

Black and White Challenge

Good morning, I hope you are keep warm, on this wonderful Winters day.

Thank you for joining me on my blog to day where we will look at another Challenge I did last Saturday.

Black and White Challenge

Use only Black and White…no other colour!

It didn’t have to be a card…it could be anything I want…What would you make?

 

Painted Poppies

I made a card…Again I kept it simple and used the Painted Poppies Stamps.

For this card I stamped the poppy image with VersaMark onto the Basic Black. The VersaMark was hard to see on the Basic Black so I stamped and heat embossed half the card at a time using the White Embossing Powder.

The Whisper White panel across the middle of the card i cut using one of the rectangle dies from the Ornate Layers Dies. I trimmed the side edges of as it was too long for the width of the card front. The bed of Poppies where stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed using Black Embossing Powder.

To finish the card I wrapped Whisper White Crinkle Ribbon around the Whisper White Cardstock and tied off with a knot, cutting the ends at a angle. A simple way to finish your ribbon instead of tying a bow or if your length of ribbon is too short for a bow.

Happy Birthday – The Spot Colour Challenge # 119

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Who loves a Challenge?……I do!

While checking my Facebook posts I came across this challenge by…

The Spot

So I just had to give it a try, as I love those colours – Magenta Madness, Basic Black, Gold and Pool Party.

Now if you enjoy a challenge here is the link so you can participate as well..‘The Spot’

Happy Birthday

I’m have been doing a bit of #Loveitchopit lately….using up some of my collections of Designer Series Paper. The challenge said I could use Whisper White but “Sparingly”…hope I haven’t used too much. But I love the Gold Flowers on Whisper White base…it’s so clean and fresh. What do you think?

This Designer Series Paper comes from Stampin’ Up! ® Ornate Gardens Suite Collection 154153 and is called Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper 152488. The Magenta Madness cardstock I embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder 152725, a beautiful little floral. I also embossed the Pool Party Cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder151775.

The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set 151534 and was stamped using VersaMark ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today…I’m not usually into geometric shapes, but by adding some floral…I’m happy….Hubby loves it….LOL!

Product List

You are simply…WONDERFUL

“You are simply Wonderful” what a beautiful statement and something I know we would love to hear.

This stamp ‘Grow & Bloom’, is from the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. You can purchase this as a Bundle with the Budding Blooms Dies with a 10% discount.

The flowers I have coloured using Stampin’ Up! Blends – Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Calypso Coral, Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade. All of these colours ‘POP’ against the black.

The sentiment – You are simply Wonderful’ was Heat embossed using Stampin’ Up! White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Basic Black cardstock. The flowers were then attached to the back of the strip.

I have also used the Buffalo Check Stamp for my background and have stamped it multiple times at different angles using Momento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This gives it a country grunge look.

TGIF Challenge #tgifc213

Its another Challenge and I have never done a challenge with TGIF and their Challenge is all about ‘Gingham Gala’. I love this DSP and it was one of the products from the last Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue.

Click on the Challenge image below and go over to TGIF and have a look at the amazing projects their Design Team have done to inspire us.

I decided with this card to team the old with the new… Gingham Gale with Stampin’ Up! ‘Bloom and Grow Bundle’. The Bloom and Grow stamps and Dies are two of the new products that are in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.

“Bloom and Grow’ is a wonderful set if you love to colour, all those beautiful flowers and what better to colour with but with Stampin’ Up! Blends.

There are 13 Photopolymer stamps made up of 5 sentiment stamps, 3 large floral swags and 5 small stamps. The ‘Budding Blooms’ Dies have 10 pieces – 3 that cut around the 3 swags, 4 to match the 4 smaller stamps, 1 that cuts 3 small flowers and 2 scallop lengths.

How I made this card…..

  • Card Base -Whisper White cut 14.5 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm
  • Card Front – Highland Heather Gingham Gala cut at 10 x 14cm, adhere to Card Base.
  • Whisper White circle cut using the Stitched Shapes and stamp the sentiment. Adhere to card front.
  • On a large scrap of Whisper White Cardstock stamp the largest of the swags and the Leaf/Berry Branch stamp twice with Momento Ink.
  • Coloured the images with Blends – Highland Heather, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody. NB: Only need to colour one end of the second swag.
  • Cut the swags and Leaf/Berry using the dies
  • Using dimensionals attach one of the swags to the left side of the stitched circle. Because the swag does not follow the curve of the circle I added the 2 small leaf branches. They are tucked under the swag and come out following the arc of the circle and adhered with Multi Purpose Glue.
  • Cut down the 2nd swag and add just under the stitched circle.
  • Add a small bow.
