Fun Fast Birthdays

These are 2 of my favorite types of cards ~ clean, simple image/layout on 4 1/4" white card bases. My sister just ordered this Fun & Fast Notes set from SU and she was nice enough to let me borrow it and stamp a few images. There is a stamp for every occasion and they're all adorable! As the name implies, it's perfect for quick cards and she mounted the images and sentiments separatly which makes it even more versatile. I made these two birthday cards this week, one for a guy and the other for a girl.
My guy card features real red and ballet blue. A little added Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds really makes this little cake pop ;) ! I used Copic markers (R29, B31 & 34) to add a little color to the cake. The sentiment is punched out with the word window punch.

My girl card features textured Melon Mambo & Regal Rose. I used Copic R29, R81 & R83 for a splash of color and Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds again for the finishing touches. I really, really like PaperTrey's premium white cardstock to use as white card's crisp, white & nice and sturdy! I used the Scallop edge Punch and word window punch, along with 3 Kaiser self-adhesive rhinestones for a little extra sparkle :) !
That's all for now. We're having a wonderfultime in the Seattle area visiting family :) ... getting ready to shower and head to church! Enjoy your day, thanks for stopping by.

Divine Design September

It's September 9th ... time to post our Divine Design projects for this month. I've been making bookmarks but this month decided to make a card instead.
I chose the verse from Romans 12:12 - "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction , faithful in prayer." This little verse is important to me because it focuses on three areas I want to grown in. Having this card out on my desk will give me the opportunity to see this scripture several times each day.

Be sure to check out Lori, Angel, Taylor & Jami's projects too! And when you upload to SCS, use the words BVC09

I have to apologize for not posting a Divine Design project for August. This challege came during finals week and I was just too buried in school work to even think about stamping. I really enjoyed making today's project. Stamping with scriptures is always extra fun :) !

For today's card I used a retired SU set called Elegant Expressions for the verse and a newer SU set called Thoughts and Prayers for the flowers. I colored the stamp with SU markers (Old Olive, Pumpkin and Ruby Red) then shimmered 'em with Spica glitter pens. The shiny finishng touch was Crystal Effects in the centers of the flowers. The cardstock is PT white, Old Olive & Ruby Red and that beautiful Olive ribbon is from the new Holiday Mini Catalog. I ran some Olive cardstock through an embossing folder then punched out the Photo Corners.

Thanks for stopping by :) .... I hope you're playing along with Divine Design. Remember, you can start anytime, the rules are simple and you can find all the details right HERE.

quick n easy birthday cards

These past few months, since returning to college, my stamping time has been very limited so I've returned to a very quick and simple style for the most part. I found an old favorite SU set on my shelf, Think Happy Thoughts that's really helped me with fast,easy birthday, friendship and thank you cards. It's one of those "stamp", "punch" and "you're done" sets.
As much as I LOVE to color with my Copics, sometimes there's just not time, and for those times, this type of set is perfect. Plus, its can be used for masculine or feminine cards depending on the colors and accessories you chose. Skip the scallop circle and pop a brad or star in the center and you've got a great guy card.
I used the new
Cottage Wall DP as my color inspiration and used Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence and Old Olive. I just stamped the birthday greeting, punched it out with a 1 1/4" circle punch, layered it with 1 3/8" and scallop circle punch, then punched out a 3/4" center to give the button (from the button bouquet collection) a little contrast. I layered up the cardstock and DP and had these cards completed in no time at all. Here's another variation ~
and for the inside...I used the Heard from the Heart set ~ That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by :) !!

Loads of Anniversary Love

Hello and Happy Wednesday! It's been a busy summer but my classes are over and I finally have a little time to do some stamping so I thought I'd show you one of my cards! I've got several birthdays and anniversaries coming up on the calendar, so I thought I should start with those cards. Plus my goal is to start and finish my Christmas cards before fall term begins on Sept I've got a lot of cards to make in the next 4 weeks.
This card is for my parent's 54th wedding anniversary coming up later this week! I used yesterday's color challenge at SCS for some inspiration (CC223) which I really needed after not stamping much for the past 8 weeks. I borrowed this Loads of Love SU set from a friend thinking I'd make a few Christmas cards, but it works great for a variety of occasions, including anniversaries :) ! I added the sentiment (Happy Anniversary) from the retired set, Hugs & Wishes.
I used Copic Marker E25, E31, E34, N1, N3, N5, R46 & R43 and Spica Glitter Pens in Silver and Red. Crystal Effects gives the Hearts, Wheels and Glass some shine and dimension. You can double-click on the photo to see some of those details.

Thanks for stopping by ~ hope you have an awesome week!

Supplies for the card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) ~ Stamps: Loads of Love & Hugs & Wishes Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Real Red & Paper Tray White Ink: Ranger Distressed Black Soot & Chocolate Chip Accessories: Copics, Spica Glitter Pens, Retired Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, 1" & 1 1/4" Circle punches, Heart to Heart punch, Pepr piercing tool & Mat Pack, Crystal Effects, Small Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities, Big Shot.

Quick and Easy Bookmark Idea

The new SU Idea Book & Catalogs arrived a couple weeks ago and my girls who pre-ordered catalogs all received this little corner bookmark along with their new catty :) ! It's an idea that SU gave us in the latest demonstrator magazine. Super quick and easy project and an extra special touch you can add anytime you give a book as a gift. I used the new Jumbled Alphhabet set which has 2 varieties of each letter, one small and one larger. As you can see, there is quite a variety of fonts and that's what I like about this set....the variety. The larger letters punch out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and layer up nicely with the 1 3/8" circle punch. Of course, I also used some of the new in-color cardstock and Designer paper (Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo & Razzleberry Lemonaide DSP).
The finished size of my bookmarks is 2", but you can make them any size you'd like. Just start with a square and score it down the center, turn and score it down the center again. I started with a 4" square of melon mambo cardstock....scored it at 2", turned it and scored again at 2". Then, cut one of the scored squares out. Here's how it looks (easy schmeezy...): Then you just fold your score lines and adhere the back flap to the middle flap. Those flaps that are adhered together will be the "back" of your bookmark, creating a little "pocket" between the back flaps and the front flap. (fyi- I used Zip Dry Paper Glue for this entire project...great stuff, economical, strong bond and quick dry and it does not wrinkle your paper.) You may need to do a little trimming if you can see any edges of the back flaps from the front. Here's how it looks just before you fold over the back flap and adhere it to the middle flap:After that I just layered up some cardstock and DP. Here's another bookmark I made using the Designer Label punch, one of the smaller letters from the Jumbled Alphabet set, and the 3/4" and 1" circle punches.
I used Melon Mambo Classic Ink for all the monogramed letters.

Here's what the bookmark looks like as it marks one of my favorite pages (pg 162) in the catalog...featuring the new Designer Papers :) ~

We normally post our Divine Design projects on the 9th of each month, but this month it will be the 16th (Thursday) ! Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy the bookmark idea. See you Thursday :) !!!

Water in-colored Rose

Quick post to show you a card made with the beautiful Fifth Avenue Stamp set and watercolored with 3 of the new in-color inks: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry. I have to thank my good friend, Nancy Littrell, who shared this technique with me the last time we got together. I'm a real novice at watercoloring, so if I can do this....anyone can! We stamped the rose with white pigement ink onto watercolor paper, hit it with the heat gun, sprayed the image with a water spritzer (you want the image to be wet), then took a watercolor brush and used re-inkers for our paint. I started with Curry, added some Melon then added touches of the Razzleberry last.
After the image dried, I cut it out and mounted it on the card.
The new Razzleberry Lemonaide DP and along with textured card stock in Razzleberry and Melon provided great layers and pulled all the colors from the rose together.
This card highlights one of the things I love most about Stampin Up... perfect color coordination of the products! Plus, those re-inkers make beautiful "paint" ... I felt like a real artist while adding the color and watching the rose come to life! A simple sentiment from the
All Holidays set was the finishing touch (punched out with the Large and Small Oval Punches). I used lots of Dimensionals which gives the card plenty of dimension.
If you want to see some REALLY beautiful cards, including several using watercoloring techniques, be sure to check out
Nancy Littrell's SCS gallery .... I guarantee you'll be inspired! You can find her gallery right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by...have a great week :) !!!

Wishing you a bee-autiful day

Quick post to show you a card I made this week :) and to wish YOU a bee-autiful day! I used the OCL set, Bees Knees. I had so much fun with this set!! I'm in the process of making a bunch of cards to be sold at a local Relay For Life event, so I need to keep the post short and get back to stamping. This set works really well for mass producing projects, including cards and bookmarks :)
I used my SU mat pack to create some fun paper piercing along the bottom edge.
I'm also anxiously awaiting the new SU catalogs which should be arriving on my doorstep sometime today. For those of you who pre-ordered your catalog, it won't be long now!!
Have an awesome day :)

Supplies for the card (size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2) ~ Stamps: Bees Knees Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Neenah White Ink: Ranger Distressed Walnut Copic Markers: E31, E34, Y32, Y35, YG82, YG11, C1 Accessories: Nesties petite circles, Big Shot, SU Mat pack & Paper piercing tool, Sakura glaze pen, Spica clear glitter pen, brown gingham ribbon

Beauty and the Beach

Today's card is my case of this week's features stamper at SCS (FS123) ... Roseanne! I love this image of Granny (Beauty and the Beach from OCL) and the way Roseanne used her nesties to create a small frame effect, so I tried both with my case. You can find her card that I cased HERE. I colored Granny with Copics (V06, E00, E02, YR04, Y08, Y11, E31, E34, R81, RV17, BG000, C3) and added some sparkly fluff to the beach (brown sugar) and her gray hair (platinum). If you double click on the photo you can get a great look at the sparkly fluff!!! I also added some Crystal Effects to add shine and dimension to her glass lenses, flowers, and her awesome jewelery.
Don't you LOVE how Granny is fully accessorized, even at the beach?? Speaking of love ... I have another sweet picture of Chloe to share. This shot really shows off her chubby little chins :) !
You can see a little more detail in this next photo of how I outlined Granny, cut her and the beach scene out, popped her and the sand pail up on dimensional, and used a background of white cardstock. The DP is from the new SU Razzleberry Lemonaide collection that will be available on July 1st in the new catalog along with the Rich Razzleberry cardstock that I used.
Thanks for stopping by ... have a great day :) !

Supplies for the card (size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2) ~ Stamps: Beauty and the Beach (OCL) Paper: Razzleberry Lemonaide DP, Rich Razzleberry, Neenah white cardstock Ink: Ranger Distressed Black Soot Accessories: Copic Markers, Spica Glitter pens, Crystal Effects, Sparkly Fluff, Lg Oval punch, Scalloped Oval punch, Kaiser orange self-adhesive rhinestones

Razzleberry Mambo Cupcake

Quick post to show you another birthday card I made last week with my SU Crazy for Cupcakes set, along with two of the new 09/10 in-colors, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry and the new DP, Razzleberry Lemonaide.I added some touches of Crystal Effects to the cupcake to give it some dimension and shine (you can double click on the photo to see some of those details).
I had a fun day with Chloe yesterday and took a few photos. Here are a couple of my favs ... She'll be 6 months old next week and is healthy, happy and cute as a bug :) ! Hard to believe this little girl spent most of her first 6 weeks of life in the hospital, undergoing 2 major surgeries. You'd never know it by looking at her today.... such a miracle!
Thanks for stopping by :) .... have a great day!

Supplies for my card (size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2") : Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes (SU) Paper: Razzleberry Lemonaide DP, Rich Razzleberry & Melon Mambo, Neenah White Ink: Ranger Distressed Black Soot Accessories: Copic Markers, Flower brad, rhinestone, Crystal Effects, Photo Corner Punch, Oval Nesties, Big Shot, Dimensionals

Born to be Wild

Today is my brother-in-law's birthday and this is the card I made for him ~ Happy Birthday Bob !!!
I used one of my favorite new OCL sets, The Tribe. If you double click on the photo you can get a better look at this cute little native. This set has so many fun and unique images...perfect for man cards, which are always challenging for me. Plus, I love the native lady and accessory pieces that comes with this set too :) !! On the inside of the card, I stamped "Happy Birthday" along with a Cupcake image ... sorry, in my haste to leave for Corvallis I forgot to take a photo of the inside, but you can see the entire set including all those super fun pieces right HERE.
I tried out some of my brand new
09/10 SU in-color cardstock on this card ~ Soft Suede & Dusty Durango. Copic E08 is a good match for Dusty Durango (you can see that on his shield). I've heard E44 is a good match for the Soft Suede, but I don't have that color yet, so I don't know for sure. The DP is by My Mind's Eye and you can find it at eP along with a great selection of Copics ! The layout for the card is from this week's sketch challenge over at SCS ~ SC232. For the stitching, I just used my paper piercing tool and mat pack to create the squares then threaded some linen thread into a needle and stitched in some Xs. Which reminds me, I received a few inquiries about how I did the ribbon treatment on my Divine Design project a few days ago so when I get home next week, I'll take a quick photo and show you how I did that. Super easy once you see how it's done.

That's about it. I'll have some new photos to show you of my sweet grandbaby, Chloe, soon ... I'm going to spend the entire day with her tomorrow!!! She's almost 6 months old and the most adorable little girl in the entire world. Nope, I'm not a bit biased, LOL !

Supplies for the card (size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2) ~ Stamps: The Tribe (OCL) My Mind's Eye DP, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Neenah White Paper: Ink: Ranger Distressed Black Soot & Chocolate Chip Accessories: Paper piercing tool/mat pack, linen thread, Copic Markers, Crystal Effects, Nesties Rectangle, Big Shot

Mambo Melon Cupcakes!

I had the most wonderful morning just coloring,
relaxing and putting a few cards together!
I haven't done that in so long....what a treat! And to make it even sweeter, I had a few brand new goodies from the upcoming SU catalog to play with: Mambo Melon cardstock, and Mambo Melon 1/2" polka dot gg ribbon, Razzleberry Lemonaide DP. This Mambo Melon color is going to be a favorite of mine. I did a little color matching with my copics and ended up using RV17 along with R83 for the frosting. RV17 is a pretty close match for Mambo Melon, but I've also seen RV29 used and that looked good too. I used R29 & R22 for the cherries and and N3, N1, C1, E31, E34 & E13 for cupcake bases and tray.I topped the cherries and tray off with a little crystal effects to give 'em shine and dimension...I love that stuff!
I'm pre-making as many cards as I can during my break because once my classes start again, my stamping time will be very limited and I want to have plenty of cards on hand to give when I need them. I learned that lesson the hard way when I was trying to make graduation cards during finals week....not a good idea. Much, much more enjoyable to make them now when I have time to relax and create!

I'm off to Corvallis to visit my girls and my grandbaby :) ... yay!! Thanks for stopping by, I have a few other cards uploaded and will be sharing those over the next few days. Enjoy your day!!!
Supplies for the card (size 4 1/4" square) ~ Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes (SU) Paper: Razzleberry Lemonaide DP, Mambo Melon, PT white Ink: Ranger Distressed Black Soot Accessories: Copic Markers, Crystal Effects, Horizontal slot punch, 1/2" Mambo Melon polka dot gg ribbon, round Nestabilities, Big Shot

Divine Design May

It's the 9th, time to share my May Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge bookmark with you ! I've had a super busy week at school, so it was really nice to take a little break and make my bookmark. I used one of the ODBD stamps from the Design Team Scripture Collection 1. This wonderful scripture was selected by the very talented Amy Sheffer, to be part of the collection (great choice Amy!).
Romans 8:28 ~
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose"

I will enjoy focusing on and memorizing this scripture during the month of May. How reassuring to know that God is working for my good...and thank goodness it's with His plan and not mine, LOL! His perspective is far broader and infinitely wiser than mine. Are you playing along with the monthly Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge? You can find the detais HERE. And if you're looking for a little inspiration, both artistic and spiritual, be sure to check out the Divine Design gallery at SCS. When you upload your project to SCS, be sure to use the keywords BVC09, so we can check out YOUR creation!
