Penguin Playmates DSP

Today’s card was created using some FREE Sale-a-bration DSP and a Freshly Made Sketch. YOU can earn this DSP for free as well by placing an order of $60+ between Aug 3 – Sep 30. This is my FAVOURITE time of the year!

The only part that is stamped is the sentiment from one of the soon to released stamp sets – Christmas To Remember. The rest is DSP that is cut into rectangles and the bear was fussy cut.

I used Opal Rounds as an accent, the fabulous Glittered Organdy Ribbon, and some Wink of Stella on the tummy, paws and ears of the polar bear. A little bit of sparkle always perks up a card.

Darling Donkeys – FMS469

This week’s sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches (FMS469) was exactly what I needed to use up some paper scraps on my desk. I grabbed 3 different 4″ X 1/2″ strips, added some details by stamping and embossing them and voila, perfect background.

January 2021 West Coast Creators Blog Hop

I am so lucky to be a part of a fabulous team – The West Coast Creators. The group is full of creative inspiration and challenges, support, and good friends. For this month’s hop I was playing around with the new Pretty Perennials stamp set and dies from the Stampin’ Up! Jan – June Mini Catalogue. I was also inspired by the TGIF Sketch Challenge #298. I love these flowers and how the die accents make them pop. The font for the sentiments was the real eye-catching part of this set for me – it just makes me HAPPY!

Thanks for hopping along with us!

To create this card I stamped the flowers in 2nd Generation Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry. Then I die cut the flowers and added accents in the same colours using the coordinating dies. The sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay and then fussy cut. The background is Smoky Slate, embossed with the Pine Planks Embossing Folder. The circle in the back is cut using the largest Stitched Shapes circle out of Fine Art Floral 12 X 12 DSP. I embellished the flower centers using Opal Rounds. I think these are my new FAVOURITE embellishment!

Approaching Perfection Splish Splash Challenge Card

I am so happy with how this card turned out! You never know what you are going to get when you start splashing a smooshing inks. This card was inspired by The Spot Creative Challenge #145.

I started by splattering ink using my water painters and ink refills onto a piece of watercolour paper. Then I splattered some Wink of Stella. When I create backgrounds like this I tend to work with multiple papers so that I can use up all of the water colour that I create. It is also nice to have ready to go water coloured backgrounds for other projects. Next I stamped the Happy Birthday from the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set Approaching Perfection in Bermuda Bay and a row of candles from the same set in Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Pacific Point. I punched those out using the Label Me Lovely Punch and mounted the whole image on a 2-1/4″ black circle. After that, I embossed a strip of 1-1/4″ X 3-1/2″ Bermuda Bay cardstock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and snipped the ends with the Tailored Tag Punch. I tied a double strand of white twine and made a bow. The black and white DSP I used is from the True Love 12X12 DSP pack in the new Jan – June Mini Catalogue. The rest is pretty straight forward gluing, adhering with Dimensionals and embellishing with a dash of sequins. You’ll find a full list of supplies below.
