Simple Things

I really like the options in the Yay You hostess set in the Occasions catalog

and decided to make a card for my Stamp A Stacks using it.  I chose to use Sweet Sugarplum, Basic Gray and Whisper White as my card stock colors.  

For the inks, I chose old Olive and Smoky Slate and added some Glitter and Clear Epoxy shapes, retired washi tape and metallic thread for accents.

February Stamp Club Projects

For this month's Stamp Club projects, I focused on Occasions catalog items for the most part.  The Painted with Love specialty paper was the focus of two of them and the Waterfront stamp set was the focus of the third.

The Waterfront card is sentiment free and I used the Stitched Shapes framelits to highlight some of the images.

For the second card, I paired the Hold on to Hope stamp set with the Painted with Love specialty paper...

And finally on the layout, used colors that coordinated with the specialty paper and also added some punched pieces using the 1 1/4" scallop circle, 1 3/8" scallop circle and 1 1/2" circle punch.

As always, if you think these look like fun - contact me for more details to try out or join our monthly stamp club!

Bride and Groom

Another current Stamp a Stack card option...this one uses the Lots of Lavender (SAB 2018) stamp set and Falling for You.  It is a simple layout but with all the colors I think turned out pretty well.

I chose Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi and Crushed Curry ink to stamp with the filler stamps over the bouquet.

Hold on to Hope

Apparently when I made the card I shared with you yesterday I left the Sheet Music background stamp on my desk so I would use it a little more!  It is paired with the Hold on to Hope stamp set for this card.  

I have added some lace trim behind the sentiment and attached it with Stampin' dimensionals, and punched out the "hold on to hope" with the classic label punch.

Musical Thoughts

Well, I am back again!  The mess of redoing much of our upstairs flooring is finally gone and there is just a few little details left to complete.  I finally made it back into my craft room today after about two weeks away so I hope I can once again keep up with projects to share with you!  

I decided to pair the Sheet Music background stamp with the Heartfelt Blooms (SAB 2018) stamp set for this card that is in my rotation for my Stamp a Stacks right now.  I used Crumb Cake ink for the music and Island Indigo for the flowers.

Bright and Epic

There may be a little break in the posts after today - we have been on vacation for about a week and also have been replacing a bunch of flooring in our house before and after and have been living in a mess.  I haven't had a lot of time to play around in the stamp room, but hopefully I won't have too long of a break before I am back!

This card uses one of the Tutti Frutti card and envelopes from Sale-a-bration as well as some Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper, Epic Celebration and some Shimmer ribbon.  The colors are pretty bright so I intended the card to maybe be for a teenager...

Brusho Butterfly Basics

For this card, I used some Brusho Crystals and water on watercolor paper and added an image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Memento Black ink after it was dry.  I think the background colors got a little too dark for this image so I will have to try something different on the leftover pieces.  

I also added some Shimmer ribbon (SAB 2018) for a little accent and left off any sentiments for now.
