Creating the Waterfront Stamp Set

 

Today's project is a tropical paradise card using the Waterfront Stamp Set. There is so much versatility when creating with this stamp set. I'm happy that it will be included in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

The weather in Minnesota will almost be tropical today. I may be stretching the truth a bit, but after the winter that wouldn't end, it will seem tropical. [insert a huge smile]

 

Directions:

Card Base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Early Espresso Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".

First Layer:  4" x 5 1/4" Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, placed inside the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder and put through the Big Shot.

Second Layer:  3 1/4" x 4 1/4" Early Espresso Cardstock

Third Layer:  3" x 4" Whisper White Cardstock, You will need three Sponge Daubers to create the sky.

  • Use the long narrow image multiple times in Crumb Cake Ink to create the sand at the bottom of the cardstock.
  • Use Early Espresso Ink to add the palm tree images.
  • Use a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and color it with a  Sponge Dauber in the  Crushed Curry Ink. Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso Ink and punch it out with the 1 3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch. Attach with Dimensionals.

You can shop in my 24/7 online store here for all your papercrafting supplies. It is hard to believe that the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog will be done on June 3, 2019. But the upside to that is the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog starts on June 4, 2019!!!

 

Last weekend, we spent Saturday with some of Dan's sibilings. Sunday, we celebrated Mother's Day with  brunch at a local restaurant. The big surprise was watching our oldest grandgirl D-R-I-V-E her mom and sister to and from the brunch. If you could have seen the shocked look on my face! Wasn't I just rocking that baby girl to sleep? In six months, she will be a licensed driver. Yikes! Today is Stampin' Up!'s worldwide Day of Service. I'm looking forward to doing some volunteer work with my team members. Enjoy this wonderful Wednesday's weather and thank you for stopping by!

 

 

Using the Well Said Stamp Set & Well Written Framelits

 

There are times when Stampin' Up! designs different products that go together. The Well Said Stamp Set and the Well Written Framelits are an example of the current trend where sentiments combine a stamped image along with a framelit image.

 

Well Said Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

There are 51 images in the Well Said Stamp Set.

 

 

Well-Written-Framelits

Combine them with the 24 images in the Well Written Framelits and you have endless sentiments to use on your papercrafting projects.

The color scheme on today's card uses Powder Pink (a retiring In Color), Smoky Slate and Whisper White. It also uses the Country Floral Embossing Folder, which was a Sale-a-Bration free item. Guess what? It is in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

 

 

Directions:

Card Base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Powder Pink Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".

First Layer:  4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Cardstock. Place inside the Country Floral Embossing Folder and put through the Big Shot.

Second Layer:  1 1/4" x 4" Smoky Slate Cardstock.

Third Layer:  1" x 4" Powder Pink Cardstock. Stamp the sentiment in Smoky Slate Ink.

Use a scrap of Smoky Slate Cardstock and place the "love" from the Well Written Framelits on it and put it through the Big Shot. The final touch is to tie a knot in the 5/8" Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and attach it with a Glue Dot.

 

This is really a simple card to make. The two different styles of sentiments adds such such a unique touch to this card.

 

 

Supplies Used:

 

I have been spending any spare time I have working on card swaps using products from the new Annual Catalog. Little by little, they are getting finished. On Monday, I finally got outside and worked in the flower gardens. Sunshine and the smell of fresh dirt was wonderful. It is still too cold to put the annual plants out, but hopefully the weather will change. Today, I have some volunteering to do and then a much needed haircut. I'm hoping for a warmish Wednesday. How about you?

 

 

Creating with the Pop of Petals Stamp Set

 

It is still too cold in Minnesota to plant annual flowers. The morning temperatures have been in the 30's and 40's. Since I can't have colorful annuals in my yard, I'm creating colorful floral cards in my studio. Today, I'm using the Pop of Petals Stamp Set, which has a coordinating Four-Petal Flower Punch.

When the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape colors were introduced last year, I was one happy gal. Not only do I love any purple colors, but I feel nostalgic when they are used together. My childhood home had a half bathroom that was decorated in light and dark purple colors. My mom sewed fabric into three-inch wide valances. They were put on small curtain rods and attached to the front of the three shelves. I don't think I've ever seen another bathroom with ruffles along the shelves. 

 

Directions:

Card Base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Very Vanilla Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".

First Layer:  4" x 5 1/4" Highland Heather Cardstock. Place inside the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and put through the Big Shot.

Second Layer:  Three 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" Gorgeous Grape Cardstock squares.

Third Layer:  On a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock, stamp three floral images in Gorgeous Grape Ink. Punch them out with the Four-Petal Flower Punch. Attach to the Second Layer with Dimensionals.

The final touch is to add three Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequin to the center of the flowers.
