Cups of Cheer

In playing around with the Spooky Night designer series paper and the Coffee Cups framelits, I came up with these very similar cards one day.  Each uses the same pattern of designer series paper and has a die cut square in the background made with the Stitched shapes framelits.

The sentiments are from the Merry Café stamp set and I added them in a different way on each card.

The card below uses the Everyday label punch for the sentiment although I cut one end straight.

I just love the tiny coffee cup framelit so I die cut that in Basic Black ink and then stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla, cut it out and added it to the cup.

Sponged Sympathy

Sometimes I find it difficult to come up with new ideas for sympathy cards and I had recently seen a few sponged cards using the High Tide stamp set so I thought I would put something together using that.

I cut a circle out with the Layering circles framelits on scrap paper and used it for my mask, then sponged Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Dapper Denim ink inside the circle before adding some stamped elements.

For a Special Couple

The card I am going to share with you today has a couple different layouts although they are very similar.  Each one uses the Wood Textures designer series paper  as a background and some Bundle of Love specialty paper as well as a doily and pearls.

The sentiments are from the Special Occasions stamp set and I also added some lace trim for more texture.

Junior High Football

I love scrapbooking the sports composite pictures, the are so much easier to do a quick page with since the title and layout on the 8" x 10" does a lot of the work for you.

I added it to a 12" x 12" Basic Black card stock and matted the photo on Whisper White.  For some accents I added some 7/8" striped ribbon and a piece of Crushed Curry that I die cut some designs from using the Eclectic Layers thinlits.

October Stamp Club Projects

Well, the harvest finally caught up to me last week with no time to post any projects for you.  I can't guarantee it won't happen again even though we are finished with harvest.  There is still a lot of post harvest work to get done so we will see if I can keep up!

These are the projects we used for Stamp Club this month...the layout uses the Musical Instruments thinlits, Merry Music specialty paper and Quilted Christmas designer series paper.

The fall card uses the Colorful Seasons stamp set on glossy card stock and the foil leaf is from the September Paper Pumpkin kit.

Finally the Cup card uses the You've Got This stamp set in the background and Merry Café for the sentiment.  I chose to use the Merry Little Christmas card stock pack for the cup and added some Year of Cheer specialty paper and a foil snowflake.

If you think these projects look fun and would like to join us, contact me here for more details!

Birthday Blues

I was playing around with colors again using the Painted Harvest stamp set.  This time around I chose Dapper Denim and Island Indigo ink along with Soft Suede for the middle of the flower.  

A few of the cards I did were without sentiment and a few were Happy Birthday using the Special Occasions stamp set.

I also added a few glitter enamel dots as accents and for some texture.

I was randomly going through some scraps when I put this card together, thinking it would be a good masculine birthday card - and I need a lot of those...

It started with two patterns of the Eastern Palace specialty paper and a die cut circle that was cut using the Stitched Shapes framelits.  Then I added the sentiment from Happy Celebrations and put it all together.

I have already shown you a card using the same two stamp sets as I have used on this one - Sorry for Everything and Background Bits.  This one is a little bit different using different colors and some different designer series paper.

I chose to start with a Pool Party background and added Delightful Daisy designer series paper.  The flowers in the background are stamped with Peekaboo Peach ink.

Bloomin' Heart Congratulations

When thinking about creating some wedding cards recently, I decided to pair the Sweetheart folder and the Bloomin' Heart thinlit.  This actually covers up the heart impression on the Sweetheart folder, but I like the rest of the embossing as well.

My sentiments come from the Cheers to the Years and Special Celebrations stamp sets and are stamped with Bermuda Bay ink.  The accent flowers are retired and were recently on the clearance rack.

Pocket of Flowers

This is another of those sentiment free could be used to cheer someone up, for a birthday, a hello or for lots of other things and the sentiment may be added later or left blank.  I started with the Pocket Full of Sunshine stamp set and coordinating Pocket framelits dies.  The pocket is cut from some Naturally Eclectic designer series paper.

I stamped the outline of the flowers with Fresh Fig ink and then used the stamp to color in with Berry Burst and Daffodil Delight.  The little images around the pocket are in Pool Party and are from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set.  Finally, I added some metallic shapes to the pocket for accents.
