Thoughts and Prayers – An All Occasions Card

                                         Thoughts and Prayers Summer Mini Hostesst Rewards

Hello My Stamping Friends – Happy Saturday.  Today I have a card to share that is a KISS kind of card.  You say what is KISS (Keep It Simple Sweetie).  This just means to keep it clean, crisp and not too many layers.  Of course this concept is in the mind of the beholder.  By eliminating some of the matt on my focal point you could even make this more KISSable.  LOL  Now let's get started, my card base is a 5.5 x 8.5, scrored at 4.25 in Soft Suede #115318.  I matted it with a piece of designer paper from the Elegant Soiree' (check back Monday)  #117163.  My second layer is Soft Suede and Baja Breeze #111352.  My focal point was stamped from the Stamp Set Thoughts and Prayers #113252 on Very Vanilla cardstock #101650.  My sentiment was taken from the set Sincere Salutations #115068.  For embellishments I used some 5/8" Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon #117291 and I used a few of our new pearls from our Jewels collection #119247.  Easy Peasy now you have a great looking all occasion greeting card. 

Be sure and check back in on Monday.  I have something for you.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your week end.  Toodles

Priceless With Sunny Garden DP

Good Morining My Stamping Friends – Happy Friday.  You're gonna love this card that I have to share today.  It's clean and simple and so very summery.  I got my layout from Michelle Wooderson over at Mish Mash.  Just love her site.  Of course the stamps and embellishments are different.  Mine is all SU.  I used our crisp Whisper White #100730 for my base cardstock and them I matted a piece of one of our new In-Colors Pear Pizzazz #119795.  My next matt is a piece of designer paper from Sunny Garden #119831.  This is were I stamped my images.Priceless Happy Together Scallop Square Punch Summer Mini 2010-2011 Stampin Up Catalog  Don't be afraid to stamp directly on your designer papers.  It makes for a great look.  I had to use several stamp sets to get the images I wanted.  My stems are inked in Pear Pizzazz #119784 and came from the set called Happy Together #114314, The flowers are inked in Poppy Parade #119782 and came from the set Priceless #115052.  I punched out some Daffodil Delight cardstock  #119683 and used our Scallop Square Punch #119884 and punched three squares.  I matted them with some scraps from the dp Sunny Garden and added some cute buttons for some pop.  The sentiment happiness comes from a retired set from a couple of years aga but you can make it your own by using anything you like.  And that's it Easy Peasy.  I hope you get some stamping time this week end.  This is a lovely card that would put a smile on anyone's face.

Apple Blossoms

Good Morning Everyone – Hope your day is starting out mighty fine.  Today I have a card to share using the Level 2 Hostess Set Apple Blossoms #120139.  This set is soooooo cute.  I think the thing that caught my eye is the funky cute long stems.  My cardbase is Early Expresso  from our new Neutral Collection #119686.  If Choc Chip was one of your favs, you're gonna love this one.  It is much darker and richer.  My next layer is a piece of WW #100730 and I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on the right side #118402 for that extra special touch. Apple Blossoms Level 2 Hostess Summer Mini 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog My focal point is a piece of Pear Pizzazz #119795 and then another layer using Peach Parfait #119794.  Both of these colors are from the new In-Color collection for this year.  For my flowers I used an old method called masking.  It has been around for a long time.  I stamped my Peach Parfait flower first on a piece of sticky note and then placed it in the corner of my WW piece.  Then I stamped my Pear Pizzazz flowers where I thought they should be.  Removed my mask.  I then stamped my Peach Parfait flower on a separate piece of WW and cut it out using my Paper Snips #103579.  Great pair of scissors, they are super sharp and pointed so you can cut in close.  I then stamped my sentiment with Early Expresso Ink #119670.  For some added pizzazz I added  a piece of 1/4" Early Expresso Ribbon #120931 and also you will notice I added a Scallop corner.  I did this by punching a corner of Early Expresso with the matching scallop corner punch #118870.  I trimmed up the corner and put it up underneath my WW piece.  There you have it easy peasy.  Now it's your turn.  Thanks for stopping by and chatting today.  I have a full day of house cleaning you know how that its.  I spend most of my week end out in the yard.  We had mighty strong winds Saturday night and the front yard was full of branches and leaves.  Don't you just hate that.  It took most of Sunday morning to rake and pick them up.  Have a wonderful day.  See ya back here tomorow.  Toodles  Oh I forgot to mention the polka dots on my card.  As many of you know empty white space bothers me some times, so I took a white paint pen and added the swiss polka dots to the white areas of my card.  It is very soft and subtle but I do think you can see it even in the picture.  Always trying little things to perk up a card.

Watercolor Trio 101

Hello Friends – It is Wednesday right.  Has everyone got big plans for the weekend?  I know when we had a lake house at Table Rock Lake, Memorial Day was like opening day.  It's the start of the summer.  I'm hoping to get to work on the pool a little bit.  It's always a challenging time getting the pool ready.  Oh My!!!  Today I have a very pretty card, at least I thnk so.  It's our beautiful Soft Suede again.  Such a lovely color as a background.  I'm so glad it will be around for another year.  Watercolor Trio Summer Mini Stampin' Up SpecialsAnd of course there is nothing prettier than matting a piece of PIP on top punched with the Scallop Trim Border.  This punch will be available again come July 1st.  i used a piece of Sweet Pea Designer Paper which is retired right now.  I sure hope SU comes up with another packet of Designer Papers like that.  It was a great go to source.  I also used the very pretty and new Square Lattice Embossing Folder #119976 which can be found on pg 24 of the Summer Mini.  The summer mini is just chocked full of great summer fun sets and they are very reasonable priced especially if you have gone to the clear mounts.  The stamp set is Watercolor Trio #120084.  This stamp set is fool proof.  I find the best way to ink it up is to use your markers.  This gives you the look of two colors the easy way.  My inks were Soft Suede, So Saffron, and Regal Rose.  My sentifment is from Great Friend #113792.  For embellishing I used a little piece of PIP 1/4 ribbon.  Easy Peasy.  Now it's your turn to make something beautiful.

In my last post I reminded you of some of the ongoing specials that we have for this month which by the way is coming to an end very soon.  Please take another look and make sure you havn't missed out on anything.  There is still time to reserve the new Idea Book and Catalog.  Please give me a holler so I can have one put aside for you.  Also I may not have mentioned it, but this posting everyday makes for a lot of cards.  If there is a card that you like and would like to have please let me know.  Most of my cards sell for $4. and that includes shipping.  If there is one that takes your fancy and is just a must have, let me know.  LOL Or you can hop on over to my Etsy Store just click on my icon on my left sidebar and check it out there.  Also I am still in the process of making Rag Purses.  I know some of you are using them to take to convention for all of the great swaps that you're going to get.  If you would like one just Email me your colors .  Thanks for stopping by and I see you all right back here tomorrow.  Toodles
