Beautiful You

What an EASY theme we have for the SUO Challenge this time.  Our theme is feminine and there is just sooooo many different ways you can go with this!

With this theme the first thing that came to mind was the Beautiful You set.  It is just such a pretty set and oh so feminine.  With everything going on this month, I have been keeping things nice and simple and this one is oh so simple!

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, stamp female image in Peek-a-boo Peach, greeting in Night of Navy, and dots using Soft Sky
  • Night of Navy diagonal Stripe dsp – 5/8 x 5 1/2, add to back of Whisper White Panel, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off

Did I mention easy?  What can I say…truly easy!  Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

Weather Together

One set that I just HAD to have when the last new catalog came out was the Weather Together set.  I just LOVE the umbrella in this!

I have used the umbrella on a couple different cards but as I was working on getting some cards together for this month I decided I wanted to us this one (okay…that and I had already packed away a lot of my stuff and this was one I left out).  I thought it would be pretty in the colors in the Cupcakes & Carousels dsp paper stack.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/4, stamp greeting using Basic Black and Bermuda Bay, run through Falling Petals Embossing Folder, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Three prints from Cupcakes & Carousel dsp paper stack (So Saffron print, Peek-a-boo Peach print, Bermuda Bay print) – stamp umbrella using Memento Black, cut out using mating framelit
  • So Saffron, Peek-a-boo Peach, Bermuda Bay – stamp umbrella handle using Memento Black, cut out with matching framelit.  I wanted the handle to be longer so I cut each into two pieces and then extended the handles when I taped to back of each umbrella., layer and add to card front using dimensionals

Love the pretty soft colors on this!

Set(s): Weather Together, Beautiful You
Paper: Whisper White, So Saffron, Peek-a-boo Peach, Bermuda Bay, Cupcakes & Carousels dsp paper stack
Ink: Memento Black, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay
Other: Umbrella Weather Framelits, Falling Petals Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Beautiful You

So I had this idea for a quick and easy card using one of my favorite sets – Beautiful You!  I wanted to do a ‘watercoloring’ kind of card and since I’m not all that good at watercoloring I used the technique where you wet the paper (LOVE using the Shimmery White for this) then stamping an image (I used one from Happy Celebrations) and let it fun for that watercolor look!  Although this is a quick and easy look…you do have to make sure your ‘watercoloring’ is nice and dry before you do do the stamping on top of it!

Here’s the details…

  • Shimmery White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Shimmery White – 3 3/4 x 5, wet the paper and stamp the one image from Happy Celebrations in Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party (and finish with Flirty Flamingo again).  Set aside and let dry (I waited over night).
  • Stamp image and greeting using Memento Black, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Take the backing  off 5 small Perfect White Accents and add using Tombow Glue

I’m on a roll with QUICK AND EASY!

Weather Together

This time the SUO challenge theme is A Favorite April theme.  As soon as I saw that, I thought April Showers.  I just love the Weather Together set and just haven’t used it enough (sure hope it doesn’t retire!).  The umbrella was perfect for an April Showers theme!

I didn’t want to use any of the greetings that came with the set but LOVE the greeting from Beautiful you and it worked just perfectly with my card.  It looks so good with in different colors!

Here’s the details…

  • Soft Sky – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Basic Black and Rich Razzleberry, stamp raindrop in Sof Sky
  • Succulent Garden dsp (Calypso Coral print) – 1/2 x 5 1/2, add behind right side Whisper White panel
