Kinda Eclectic

I like a couple things…I like bright happy rainbow colors and I like stamping images in colors that are not always the ‘natural’ color for that image.

Take leaves for example…I don’t always feel like I have to keep leaves in the greens or even pretty fall colors.  I think leaves can be any color in the rainbow and I decided to do that with the really cool leaf image in the Kinda Eclectic set.  One of the best things about this card is just how quick and easy it is!

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Shimmery White – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 (okay used this because didn’t notice that it was the Shimmery White…you can use regular Whisper White), stamp leaf image in Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, So Saffron, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, greeting in Memento Black and little dots (from Cool Treats set) in Smoky Slate
  • Tide piece of Flirty Flamingo around top, add panel to card front

Yep…that about covers it, quick, bright, and happy!

Set(s): Kinda Eclectic, Tin of Cards, Cool Treats
Paper: Shimmery White, Peek-a-boo Peach
Ink: Memento Black, Smoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, So Saffron, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

I was in the mood to do a splatter type card.  I love the new splatters in the Happy Celebrations set but I also LOVE the Gorgeous Grunge set.  The two really work so nicely together.

I started putting these two splatters together and thought this ended up being such a fun card!  I’ve really been into the Peek-a-boo Peach color (note to self…order more cardstock) and paired it up with Real Red and Basic Black for a fun look!

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 3 3/4 x 11 folded
  • Real Red Diagonal Stripe – 3 /4 x 3 3/4, add to bottom of card front
  • Basic Black – 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2  x 4 1/4, stamp larger splatter using Peek-a-boo Peach, smaller splatter using Real Red and greeting using Memento Black, add to card front
  • Add some Silver Metallic Enamel Stars to finish off

How quick and easy!

Nothing but Words

CreateFA15HopWelcome

Oh do we have a fun challenge for the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop – Nothing But Words – using a words stamp as the main focus of our project.

For my project I decided to go a little different direction than probably the other design team members.  As soon as I saw this challenge I thought of this card that I made back in February 2014.  It was one of my favorites and I thought it would be fun to update it with some of our current stuff.

sathopwords

It’s this fun!  I think it really does feature the words…but instead of it being the focal greeting, it is the background!  It really is a fun card…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, corner round the bottom left.
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, corner round the bottom left, stamp greeting using Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron, and Perfect Plum.  The great thing about using the Photopolymer stamps is that is makes placement so easy!
  • Basic Black – cut out umbrella and handle.  I want the rod of the umbrella to be a little long so I did split it and extended it on the back.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Silver Metallic Dots to finish it off.

Now to send this to a friend of mine who has been a bit ‘under the weather!

Set(s): Tin of Cards

Paisleys & Posies

img_3389I don’t know WHY I did’t want to get this set.  I LOVE it!  When I first saw it my thought was…WAAAY too fussy and those of you who know me know I don’t do fussy .

But then after seeing so many cool things using this set, well I did HAVE to have it.  If you haven’t check out my other cards you can see a super simple one here and a fancier one here.

This is another simple card and think it is a great card for fall.

  • Mint Macaron and Basic Black – cut out ‘fancy’ leaves and add to paisley
  • Delightful Dijon – stamp medium ‘flower’, cut out with matching framelit and add to paisley to finish off
