Buttons

 Three is a magical number: 3 buttons, 3 flowers, 3 colors...just because. Don't even get me started with the significance of 3 and religion. Although, in sports, 3 strikes and you are OUT! So, what do you think?




Stamps:
   Doodle This
   And Many More

Paper:
   Bumblebee A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

Ink:
   Archival Basic Black

Markers:
   Bumblebee
   Pretty Peacock
   Cherry Cobbler

Technique:
   None

Accessories:
   SU Buttons
   Glue Dots
   Adhesive

Like many of my cards, the sentiment can be changed to suit your needs, or it can be left off completely.

The colors can also be changed to coincide with your accessories or your personal taste.

What I most enjoyed about creating this card is that your coloring does not need to be precise. After all, the name of the stamp set is, Doodle This.

Halloween Scarecrow

 I make cards all year long for all of the major categories, usually whenever the mood strikes me. For this card, I was challenged to make a card with a scarecrow on it. This is what I conjured up using my supplies. What do you think?




Stamps:
   Cookie-Cutter Halloween
   Teeny Tiny Wishes

Paper:
   Old Olive A-2
   Halloween Night DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4, 5/8 x 2-1/4, 2-1/2 Sq.
   Basic Black 3/4 x 2-1/2

Ink:
   Archival Basic Black
   Real Red
   Pumpkin Pie

Markers:
   Mango Melody
   Old Olive
   Pumpkin Pie
   Real Red

Technique:
   Punching
   Sponging

Accessories:
   Cookie-Cutter Punch
   Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
   Brights Candy Dots
   Sponge
   Dimensionals
   Adhesive
   Paper Pumpkin Left-over Tag

I first stamped, punched, and colored my scarecrow. This was my main focus, since I was challenged to include one on my card.

Next, I chose my card base and adhered a panel of DSP on it.

I then attached the scarecrow using dimensionals.

I stamped the black crow.

I found a left-over tag from my Paper Pumpkin supplies. I stamped and sponged it. I adhered it to a Basic Black piece and attached it using dimensionals.

Lastly, I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

Just Magnolias

 Beautiful printed paper should never be hidden. I have been going through my stacks of designer series paper and have found quite a few that I have not wanted to cut. They are so beautiful, they can stand alone on a card. Still, they should be enjoyed and awed by everyone. Plus, I need to stop hoarding these supplies! How many of you also hoard your paper? Come clean and cut, cut, cut. 




Stamps:
   Dozen Thoughts (A)

Paper:
   Petal Pink A-2, 1/2 x 4
   Magnolia Lane DSP 5-1/4 x 4

Ink:
   Mossy Meadow

   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Adhesive

Of course, the sentiment can be changed to suit your needs. You can also leave it off completely, creating an All Occasions card.

The rhinestones can be switched to pearls or left off completely.

Just Madness

 Here is one when you just want to send a card and make someone smile. Image receiving an envelope that is clearly not a bill or junk mail. You carefully open it and see this card. Immediately, your reaction is to smile. If not, go see a doctor, something is wrong with you. For the rest of you, spread joy and happiness. Why? Just Because...




Stamps:
   Lovely You

Paper:
   Shaded Spruce A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), 3/4 x 2-3/4
   Flowers for Every Season DSP 1 x 3

Ink:
   Shaded Spruce
   Just Jade
   Magenta Madness

Markers:
   Just Jade
   Magenta Madness

Technique:
   Punching

Accessories:
   Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
   2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots
   Dimensionals
   Adhesive

The leaves are stamped twice before re-inking. This created the two tones of Just Jade.

The flower with the stem attached is inked with markers and then stamped on the Whisper White panel. Always remember to breathe on the stamp before applying it to paper. This will moisten the ink. 

The single flower is inked using the ink pad. This gives it a bit of a darker impression.

Fresh Thank You

 Beautifully designed paper yields a beautiful card. Just add you sentiment using one of the colors on the DSP or a neutral color of your choice. I like to sponge it with a lighter color, also found in the DSP. I then use this same color as the card base bringing the whole card together. What do you think?

Thank You Evergreen

 Sometimes all you need is a beautiful embossing folder. There are many techniques: add ink to the folder, emboss different types of paper, stamp on it, and the list continues. I kept this one simple.




Stamps:
   Four You

Paper:
   Whisper White A-2, 5-1/4 x 4

Ink:
   Merry Merlot

Technique:
   Dry Embossing
   CAS

Accessories:
   Evergreen Forest 3-D Embossing Folder
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Adhesive

I ran my Whisper White panel through my emboss and die cut machine using the Evergreen Forest embossing folder.

I stamped my sentiment with Merry Merlot and adhered the panel to the Whisper White card base.

I added three rhinestones to finish the card.

Thanks Iris

 Clean And Simple (CAS) cards are elegant and beautiful. You do not have to adorn your cards with too many embellishments to make them beautiful, especially if you plan on mailing them. Here is a card with only five little enamel stars. What do you think?




Stamps:
   Inspiring Iris
   Gorgeous Grunge

Paper:
   Soft Suede A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

Ink:
   Soft Suede
   Flirty Flamingo
   Terracotta Tile
   Mossy Meadow

Technique:
   2-Step Stamping
   CAS
   Stamp-Off

Accessories:
   2016-2018 Enamel Shapes
   Adhesive

This is a 2-Step stamp set. First, you stamp the outline of the iris and then you stamp the color. The same happens on the leaves. 

The background splatters are from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I stamped twice (stamp-off) with the stamp before re-inking. This gives the variation in color for the background splatters.

The sentiment can be changed to suit your needs, and the colors can be changed to whatever palette you desire.

With Sympathy

 You can never go wrong by sending flowers. No matter the occasion, flowers always suffice. I added a few pearls to this bouquet and attached a sentiment. What do you think?




Stamps:
   Flourishing Phrases

Paper:
   Rococo Rose A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4, 2-1/2 x 2
   Pressed Petals DSP 3-3/8 x 4-1/4
   Mossy Meadow 3-1/2 x 4-3/8

Ink:
   Mossy Meadow
   Rococo Rose

Technique:
   Punching
   Sponging

Accessories:
   Extra-Large Oval Punch
   Sponge
   Basic Pearl Jewels
   Dimensionals
   Adhesive

The wooden panel with the flowers is from the Pressed Petals designer series paper pack. All I had to do was mat it with some Mossy Meadow cardstock and add a few pearls. 

I then stamped the sentiment on a Whisper White scrap and punched it out using my Extra-Large Oval Punch. I sponged it with a bit of Rococo Rose and added some pearls. I attached it using dimensionals.

Just Because Lakefront

 The Waterfront stamp set is quite versatile. You can create endless scenes, using the stamps in the set only, or combining them with other sets. If you run out of ideas, just check your favorite social media sights, or click on Waterfront on the left sidebar. I believe I have blogged more than 10 cards using this set so far. Here is another...Just Because.




Stamps:
   Waterfront
   Dozen Thoughts (A)

Paper:
   Mango Melody A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

Ink:
   Granny Apple Green
   Mango Melody
   Misty Moonlight
   Crumb Cake

Technique:
   Stamp-Off
   CAS

Accessories:
   Clear Wink of Stella
   Adhesive

I began by stamping land in the middle of the panel, using Crumb Cake. I used one stamp and stamped twice before re-inking.

Next, I stamped the trees, using Granny Apple Green. By stamping two and three times before re-inking, you create the different shades of Granny Apple Green plus dimension. 

Then, I stamped the lake using Misty Moonlight. It is a very dark shade of blue, so I stamped-off on a scratch paper and then stamped twice on the panel before re-inking. 

I then added a sun using Mango Melody. 

The sentiment was stamped with Misty Moonlight.

I added clear Wink of Stella to the lake to give it some shimmer. It looks wonderful in person, but the glitter does not show up on the photo.

All in all, I used 4 stamps from the Waterfront stamp set and one stamp (sentiment) from the Dozen Thoughts stamp set.

Space

 I like this starry bokeh background stamp. I only wish Stampin' Up! had made it larger. There is a technique so that you can create your own bokeh background, but I wanted the stars for a more galaxy effect. 




Stamps:
   Lovely You
   Bokeh Dots

Paper:
   Very Vanilla A-2
   Going Places DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Whisper White 3-1/4 x 4 

Ink:
   Archival Basic Black
   Delightful Dijon

Technique:
   CAS

Accessories:
   Adhesive

I stamped the starry bokeh background on a 3-1/4 x 4 inch Whisper White panel, using Delightful Dijon. I then trimmed the piece down to 2-3/8 x 3-1/2.

I like the color variation between the Whisper White panel and the Very Vanilla card base. 

I stamped the sentiment using Archival Basic Black.

I then adhered the Just Because panel onto the center of the card base with the Going Places DSP on it.
