SUO146WOO HOO…it’s Tuesday!  And so it is time for another SUO challenge!  Our theme this time is All Kinds of Showers!

When I first saw the theme my thought was rain showers but then realized it might also be something like a baby shower or a bridal shower.  Well…ANY of those are okay for this challenge!  I’m so glad!  I wasn’t into doing a baby or bridal shower kind of card as I REALLY wanted to use the fun Shine On Specialty dsp for this challenge!

Here’s the details…

  • Kraft – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Raindrop Shine On Specialty paper – 4 x 5 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/8 x 4, stamp raindrops and greeting using Versamark, silver emboss, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Silver Foil – 1/4 x 4 3/4, add to panel
  • Stamp cloud on Whisper White using Versamark, silver emboss and punch out.  Cut out some silver clouds from the specialty dsp, layer all together and add to card front using dimensionals

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

Set(s): Sprinkles of Life
Paper: Whisper White, Kraft, Shine On Specialty dsp, Silver Foil
Ink: Versamark
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Tree Builder Punch, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

CFSwapBoy…it won’t be too long now until the Stampin’ Up! retirement list comes out.  I know I will be losing many…that happens to me every year.  But I know FOR SURE that the Sprinkles of Life (the RMHC set) will retire as these only stay around for a year.  I don’t know about you I LOVE the set this year!  I  LOVE that it has a matching punch (and LOVE the punch!) and LOVE how well it works with the Sunburst thinlet (and you KNOW I LOVE that!)

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • So Saffron – 3 3/4 x 5 1/2, run through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder
  • Whisper White – used different sized punches to make the ‘clouds’, trace on Whisper White and cut out.  Add one to the So Saffron panel and trim edges.
  • Crushed Curry – cut out oval shape then the Sunburst Thinklet, stamp the line of dots in Basic Grey Archival, add to card front
  • Add second Whisper White Cloud using dimensionals then add panel to card front.
  • Stamp cloud 3 times using Basic Grey Archival on Smoky Slate, punch out using Tree Builder Punch, add to card front.
  • So Saffron – 3/8 x 2 3/4, stamp top line only of greeting using Basic Grey Archival, cut into banner on both ends and add to card front.
  • Add some small Basic Rhinestones to finish off

TSSC367Happy Monday everyone!  It’s time now for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!  This is a fun sketch this week and since I’m really lovin’ Mint Macaron, I thought I’d pair it up with Watermelon Melon for a fun birthday card!

This is the first I’ve played with the Everyday Chic dsp and loved how this print went with the rest of the card.  To do the background white piece, I used the largest Lots of Labels framelit but made it shorter than the framelit by running it through twice to make it shorter.

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 11
  • Mint Macaron – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Elegant Dots embossing folder and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – cut out using the Lots of Labels Framelits, run through twice to make it shorter.  Add to card front.
  • Watermelon Wonder – 1/4 x 3 3/4 add to card front.
  • Everyday Chic – cut out four rectangles 1 x 3/4 and add to card front.
  • Stamp greeting using Watermelon Wonder.
  • Stamp cupcake base using Memento Black on Whisper White, cut out, stamp cupcake top using Memento Black on Watermelon Wonder and punch out, later and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add Perfect White Accents to top of cupcake.

TSSC367Interesting sketch this week…I really enjoyed playing with it.  I hope that that you join our challenge!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

TSSC366Okay before I get into this first I have to say I LOVE this card!  Seriously…it was just so much fun to make and LOVE the colors.  The second thing I have to say is that it sort of took a DETOUR a bit from the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge sketch.  Pretty much the elements are there, but things sort of moved around a bit.

I remember working with another very talented stamper on the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and sometimes when I saw her cards and looked at the sketch I would just scratch my head and she would say…the sketch is an inspiration and who knows where it will take you.  Well…that sort of happened here.  I saw the sketch and as I worked on it, this is where it took me!  LOL!!!  I LOVE it!  (Did I mention that yet?)

Here’s the details –

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 2 1/2
  • Watermelon Wonder Envelope paper – 1 x 4, add to bottom of Whisper White Piece, stamp greeting on Whisper White using Memento Black.
  • Cut three strips of dsp each 1 1/8 width from the Cherry on Top dsp.  I did 1 1/8 x 1 3/4, 1 1/8 x 1 1/2 and 1 1/8 x 1 1/4.  Add behind panel then add to card front.
  • Stamp cone on Crumb Cake using Memento Black and cut out.  Stamp ‘ice cream’ in Memento Black on Pool Party, Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder.  Layer the ice cream onto the cone then add to card front using dimensionals.

TSSC366If you look closely you will see that I pretty much did use all the elements on my card…just not in the same layout.  I hope that that you join our challenge!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

CardClass2I thought I’d share another card that we did at my June card class!

I really love the new Ronald McDonald House Charity set – Sprinkles of Life.  There are just so many different option you can do with this set – trees, cupcake, ice cream cones, clouds, flower basket…WOW!!!  I also LOVE that there is a matching punch to go with it.  I’m sort of torn between which I like the most – doing the tree or doing the ice cream cone – they are both GREAT!

Here’s the details –

  • Watermelon Wonder – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.  Stamp ‘clouds’ using Pool party and layer onto Tip Top Taupe 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Add panel to card front using dimesionals.
  • Wild Wasabi – 1 7/8 x 4, add dotted paper (Cherry on Top dsp) 1/2 x 4, then cut into a banner.
  • Stamp greeting using Memento Black the add using dimensionals.
  • Whisper White 2″ circle layer onto Watermelon Wonder 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch using dimensionals then onto card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp tree trunk using Soft Suede on Tip Top Taupe, with using Tree Builder Punch, stamp ‘leaves’ using Garden Green on Wild Wasabi and punch using Tree Builder Punch, add using dimensionals.
  • Punch flower (Tree Builder Punch) and add to tree.
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to the center to finish off.

Oh what fun!  And speaking of fun…if you live around the Dayton Ohio (Indiana, Kentucky, Columbus, Cincinnati area)…Create with Connie and Mary are going LIVE on July 11th and we would LOVE to have you join us.  Here’s a ‘sneak peek’ of the projects we will be doing…
