Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper #4 - Stampin' Up!

Simple touches like die cuts mounted with dimensionals make elements stand out on a card.  Here I used a framelit from  the Apothecary set (retiring on June 2) with the sentiment from Kinda Eclectic which is being carried over into the new catalogue on June 2.  A white Baker's Twine bow and a couple of rhinestones finish of the card.  I really like the Blackberry Bliss card stock and ink with this Painted Blooms paper.

Two more cads to this set of six...

Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper #3 - Stampin' Up!

For today's card I heat embossed the sentiment from Million & One (retires as of June 2) using Versamark and Rose Red Ink; made a bow from a strand of the Jute Ribbon and added a few rhinestones, which I coloured with Blendabilities.  Seeing as the Blendabilities are no longer available you can use a coloured Sharpie or any alcohol based markers.

Once again, credit goes to Patty Bennett for her 6 cards from one sheet of Painted Blooms DSP inspiration!

Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper #2 - Stampin' Up!

I know, not much done here!  But you don't have to complicate things.  I think it is pretty with just a sentiment (now retired Lotus Blossom) and a Baker's Twine bow.  Paper was mounted on a piece of Blackberry Bliss and stamped in the same colour.  Can you find this section in the piece below?  :)

Credits:  Cased from Patty Bennett who inspired this 6 cards from one sheet fun!

See you tomorrow for card #3

Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper - Stampin' Up!

I've made a set of six cards from this one sheet of Designer Series Paper called Painted Blooms.  They are based on a set made by Patty Bennett, a talented US Demo.  This paper is on page19 of the Occasions catalogue which expires on June 2, 2105.

Here is what the sheet looks like before I cut it up!

Besides the retired ribbon (Old Olive Striped Organdy) and the paper, everything else will be available when the new catalogue goes live on June 2.  I embossed the sentiment but it does not show in the photo.

Here's what else I used on the card.

Regals Candy Dots
Deco Labels Framelits
Merry Everything Stamp Set
Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink
Clear Embossing Powder
Versamark Ink

Stay tuned for the other 5 in the days ahead.

Adventure Bound Bravo and Adventure Bound By the Tide - Stampin' Up!

Two more Adventure Bound cards for you today!

Another card CASED from Brian King.  This time I changed out the sentiment (from the stamp set Bravo) and embossed with white embossing powder.  Reminds me of graffiti on a school brick wall; so I thought it would be a good card for a high school graduation.  I had messed up on the embossing on my first attempt so cut out the star and adhered with a tiny piece of dimensional to make the star pop on the word you.

This card was also quick and easy; using By the Tide and the reverse of the paper as an accent. Happy  Birthday sentiment is from Crazy About You.  The Burlap Ribbon was cut down to size.  Love that the gold buttons are coming back in the new catalogue in June!

Adventure Bound - Stampin' Up!

This sweet paper comes to an end on June 2 or while quantities last.  This image piece comes in a paper stack of 48 of 4.5" X 6.5" double side pages.  There are 12 designs in all of which only a couple are sampled in today's post.  Get these packs for $8.50.

My scenery piece was cut down to 4" X 5.25" and is mounted on Mossy Meadow card stock.  The sentiment and accent was stamped on a piece of card stock vellum with Stazon On black ink.  There was a thin strip of extra paper left over that I used as a border on the inside of the card.

It really doesn't get much easier than that....a few minutes and you have a lovely card!

I think this card ROCKS!  I CASED it from Brian King, a talented US demo.  Everything used in this card will retire at the beginning of June except the card stock and the sentiment.  Sentiment is from the very versatile set called Crazy About You, currently on page 31 of the 2015 Occasions Catalogue.  There are 33 stamps and comes in wood mount ($63.95), clear mount ($47.95) and Photopolymer ($30.95).  

The grid look on the left hand side is the Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets. 8 sheets; 2 ea. of 4 designs; 6" X 12".  $11.95

The word bubble was adapted from one of the framelits in the Word Bubbles set on page 230 of the Annual Catalogue.  They are $36.95 for 8 dies and also have a co-ordinating stamp set Just Sayin'.  I will miss these framelits and am hoping they will eventually have something similar we can use.

There is more to come with this fun paper!  Until then...

Happy Stamping!
