Today’s card feature a sentiment stamp set called Layering Love. Another great set from the 2016 annual catalog, it features 4 great sentiments in a big bold size. I paired it with some nice bright fall colors and a little bit of bling!
It’s Friday!! That means it’s time to share my other passion with you, quilting! This particular quilt was a true labor of love, it was made as a wedding gift for my “adopted daughter” whom I have watched blossom into a beautiful woman over the past umpteen years. I had to make up part of the pattern as I went along because I wanted to add theses beautiful passage from the Psalms into the quilt. It took a bit of trial and error to get the sizing right but I am over the moon pleased with how this one turned out. So here’s to you Steph and Mark may you have a marriage that stands the test of time and a love that lasts forever!
It’s that time of the week again! Time for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week we were given a sketch challenge. I always find these a lot of fun. Sometimes it’s a new layout I haven’t thought of or an old friend I want to revisit. Today’s sketch is more of an old friend. Remember if you want to join me for these fun challenges you just have to become a member of my team. More information on the benefits of joining Stampin’ Up! can be found on my team page. Be sure to ask if you have any questions.
Here’s the sketch we were given this week
I chose to do a more masculine card today, as I always seem to run out of them.
I hand colored the Elk to give him a bit more dimension and am really pleased with the results. I love our markers for just that reason – so many ways to use them!
Today’s card features one of the Hostess sets from the 2016 Annual Catalog. I love this versatile set! It’s perfect for a little pick me up or to share something special with that special someone. The only way to get these little cuties is by hosting a party – let me know what works best with your schedule.
It’s time once again for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. Today’s challenge was a product challenge featuring out wonderful masks. These amazing tools are so versatile! They work great on cards, scrapbooking, fabric creations…… the list goes on and on!
Here is our challenge:
Here is what I came up with for the front of the card
Hey, Girl! I think the name of the stamp set says it all in this case. I love the fun images and multiple accessories that come with this “Girl”! I think the possibilities with this set are endless. It works for a girl of any age. Of course, while I was creating this card I couldn’t decide on just one color. So I decided to make one in Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush, two of my favorites from the new In-Color collection for this year. They are both so bright and vivid they just make me happy!
Don’t you just love the great images in the Everything Eleanor stamp set. I think the images are so classic and feminine! For today’s card I used one of the flower images. This card would make a great card for any occasion. I added a little Dazzling Diamonds to the centers for a bit of bling.
I just love the Guy Greetings set! There are so many awesome possibilities for the men in our lives. I know I struggle with cards for guys so this set is a real win win for me! I will admit I am really drawn to the car image and it is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. With this card I wanted to push my boundaries a bit and use a color combo I wasn’t to sure about. When the new In Colors came out this year the Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Djon were not on the top of my list but I really like how this card came out!
Today’s card is a bit different, I don’t normally do Baptism cards because there aren’t a lot of stamps from SU that cover this special day. But they’ve come out with a great new set so I just had to give it a go. This card will be one of 10 in my upcoming Card Buffet. Remember to-go kits are always available if you’d like to make this great card at home!
I’m excited to announce that a project I’ve been working on for a while now is finally finshed! I just added a new page to my blog entitled Retired Product. This is where you can find those hard to find stamp sets and such that are no longer available purchase from SU.
