Vintage Special Delivery

The other day, I posted my Baker Birthday Card and explained that it was my third card that day. The other two are today's post. My goal when I started was to make a card in the style of the vintage Campbell Soup advertisements. I started with this girl:

I colored the little girl with my watercolor pencils and used a blender pen to wash over the colors. I had to hand cut the bouquet because I lost the framelit. It will reappear some day, but it wasn't in time for my class. Thus, why I tried other designs.

This card is my favorite. I just love that cake. The background Designer Series Paper adds dimension and repeats the pattern. I really love the Real Red ink on the Crumb Cake. 

If you are looking carefully, I have one punched sentiment that is from a new punch you can order in September! How cool! 

Happy Stamping!

Weekend of Fun

Today, I am showing you another set of pages I created using the Memories and More products. This was a weekend two years ago I spent with my niece and nephews. I love the use of Emerald Green in this card pack.

The Lemon Lime Twist is a fun accent color that matches Clare's dress. I added some washi tape for accents.

Clare and I went to the NEW ZOO's event, BOO ZOO. It was fun to wander the zoo with her and watch her kindness with other little kids. One little guy was in his stroller as a bee and she walked right up to him to make him smile. How she knew how much his family appreciated it, is a mystery. She was a flapper, but her imagination also made her a gypsy. Such fun as a kindergartner!

On Sunday, we had an early am with Tim and then played games in the afternoon. After a while, we wore Clare out!

We had a great time and my pictures show it. The Perfect Days Cardpack was, well, Perfect for these pages!

A Little Wild- Powder Pink or Lemon Lime Twist

The stamp set, A Little Wild, had my heart right away, but I just picked it up using my Bonus Days rewards in my last order. I love the little animals and wanted to make a clean, quick, and easy card. I decided to try a new challenge for me called Freshly Made Sketches, because I loved their sketch!

I just love that little guy. or girl. Since the set stamps and, with framelits, cuts the front and back, I decided to add the back to the inside. How cute!

I also made a Lemon Lime Twist version:

So cute, right?

I used Thick Whisper White for this card, which means it's a very sturdy white card. 

Such a neat look!

Happy Stamping!

Birthday Baker

My Stampin' Celebrations group meets today and hopefully will love this card:

It took me three tries to get a design that 1) didn't take forever to complete and 2) I had supplies for to make 40 cards.  My first two designs were great, but didn't meet the requirements, so I'll show them another day.

My plan was to mimic the Campell's Soup Kids artwork. The watercolor/colored pencil look was my plan. I then knew that to get a white for the coat, I needed a Crumb Cake or Sahara Sand background. Crumb Cake looked better, so I went with that. I stamped the baker with Basic Black and them colored him with watercolor pencils. My final step was to brush over the pencil with a blender pen. The darker colors blend well like watercolor. The white sometimes got wiped off, so I re-colored after it dried and re-blendered. It shows up pretty well, huh?

The little stripes of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper add an accent. I created the curve by putting the end of my paper in the backside of a circle punch.

The inside needed a little more fun, so I added some birthday hats stamped in Real Red, and a strip of Designer Series Paper.

Beautiful Butterfly

Today's card is one I showed quickly during my Embossing Paste class, but I wanted to show it in more detail.

I used Lemon Lime Twist colored Embossing Paste and the circle design mat to create the background on the Color Theory Designer Series Paper. I then cropped it into a 4" by 4 1/2" rectangle. I added a 3/4" inch piece of Whisper White on the top and used Tranquil tide to stamp the sentiment. The Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon makes a nice border. I just added loops to make my "bow."

The butterfly was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, and Tranquil Tide. The body is in Basic Black. This butterfly is striking and looks like a challenge, but it's really simple. Stamp. Stamp. Stamp. Done. I love that kind of card!

Happy Stamping!

Memories of Sunshine

At our retreat, I was able to get some scrapbooking done and it felt great. I am huge fan of the pocket style scrapbooking, because it looks great, is easy to do, and lets me finish many events in one day

Here are the pages I created using Stampin' Up!'s Memories and More kits.

I had triple the pictures of this day, but I think these 6 sum it up pretty well. I love the new card--Clare was full of sunshine that day! I also got to use an overlay, and the stickers have an ombre effect across my page. I needed a little more "something" in the bottom right, so I cut a banner from a photo leftover. Pretty fun.

This is a coordinating page from the same day. Just cropped pictures 3x4 and 4x6 and Voila! a page!

Happy Stamping!

Through The Fence

I was inspired by a swap card to make this card:

and the inside:

I used the second largest Circle from the Layering Circle Framelits to cut out the hole. I stamped the flowers on a piece of 3 1/2 square Whisper White Cardstock. For the backgound, I stamped the lace image in Crumb Cake and then "stamped off" next to the first one,  and repeated until no more ink stamped. It created this ombre effect. It's easier to see on the inside how the Crumb Cake fades away.

The flowers are aquapainted in Rose Red, which came out a very cool mauve. The Marina Mist flowers add a little accent. I colored the dragonfly with Bermuda Bay and my aquapainter and cut it out with my scissors. The mini dimensionals worked perfectly behind it.

I hope the stamp group loves it!

Happy Stamping!
