Birthday Memories…

Here’s a card we made with new product at OnStage in Savannah.  The images in this set REALLY appeal to me (love them)!  I have so many sketches done for this suite of products, but my order won’t be here until Friday so stay tuned…

Awwww…cute, right?  Can’t wait to get my hands on this set.

Here are the new incolors …

The florescent lighting distorts the pure color somewhat.  These samples were part of the table centerpiece.  From left Tranquil Tide, Lemon-Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig.  Don’t they look nice together?  It’s always exciting to have new colors to work with.

Today I’d like to share more swaps from the weekend…

Today I’m doing something totally different than stamping but something I love and enjoy…gardening!  I’ve been to the nursery with a friend who has a truck?  Uh Oh!

Here’s you “B-ism” for today…

are you smiling?

Stay inky…be HaPpY!

Friendly Bumble Bee…

Today’s card is one of my favorites.  I like the way it folds together, I love the designer series paper and bumble bees are one of my favorite things on this earth because of the work they do (worker bees) and the fact they are not aerodynamically designed to fly…but do!

Here’s the card…

There’s that gingham!  I hope the new annual catalog has more…

Glamour close up…love that bee!

Do you like the opening?  The flower on the front holds the card closed.

Easter Dogwood…

Recently cute bunnies were posted to celebrate the upcoming Easter season, but today’s post features spring dogwood blooms.

Have your dogwoods bloomed yet?  Mind are buds but will be in bloom before Easter.

Here’s today’s card…

and a close up…

peeking inside…

This is my first time using the water color pencils on Kraft Paper…I learned a few things and hope to do more this week, but thought this one turned out well.  I’m not sure if this is a dogwood bloom but it was close enough for me.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits

Stuff

  1. Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock and Kraft Cardstock
  2. Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  3. Stamps:  Penned & Painted, Suite Sayings (sentiment) and Birthday Blooms (dots)
  4. Tools ‘n Embellishments:  Water Color Pencils, Blender Pen, Window Sheet

Digits

  1. The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  2. The Kraft Cardstock layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp leaves and flowers with outline stamp in Archival Basic Black.  Be sure to let this ink dry…it takes a bit.  Or you can heat it (like me!)  I have no patience…
  3. Color all images with White Water Color Pencil (your colors will be brighter).  Add Old OLive to leaves, Daffodil Delight to flower centers and Melon Mambo to shade from centers of flower petals out.  Smooth colors with Blender Pen.  Be sure to clean tip between each color change.
  4. Cut a window sheet 3-3/4″ x 5″ to use as a template to draw border skipping when you meet the leaves or flowers.  Add dots wherever you like them.
  5. Inside the card the border was drawn again and dots were added to coordinate with card front.

I’ve been playing around with this same set and water color paper.  If it turns out, I’ll post it next week.

  • I would be a poor SU! Demo if I didn’t tell you that until March 31st the best deal SU! makes is still effective.  You can become a demo (with absolutely no obligations to host parties or sell anything) and get $125 worth of product (anything in the catalog!) and only pay $99!  Whoa!  And not only that great deal, but you can pick out two additional stamp sets (anything in the catalog) for FREE!  Sounds like a “no brainer” right?  But the “cherry on top”?  You can be a Rambling Rose “BUD”, meet people all over the world and attend amazing SU! events.  Seriously, there are even more perks I can tell you about…we need to talk!  Remember, this is only available until this coming Friday.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

ask me how I know…

Totally Awesome…

Today was class day…and today’s post is one of the cards we made which I totally cased from from Krista Frattin who is a member of the Artisan Design Team.  I think the only change was the Linen Thread…

awesome

Isn’t that pretty?  Thanks so much Krista!  The first thing about this card that makes it so appealing to me is the color combination of blues and greens (a personal favorite) and the simplicity of the card.  All the stampers today loved this card.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Mint Macaron
  • Ink:  Sky Blue, Mint Macaron and Daffodil Delight
  • Stamps:  Botnical Blooms and Grateful Bunch (sentiments)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Botanical Builder Framelits, Basic Pearls

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • The Sky Blue layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″ attached to the card front with adhesive
  • The Whisper White layer is 5″ x 3 3/4″.  Stamps background a total of eight times side by side to create background in Sky Blue.  Stamp leaf veins in Mint Macaron at opposite angles from center.  Stamp Mint Macaron leaves with Mint Macaron ink with small flowers for dimension and attach with glue dots.  Add some adhesive to start loops of Linen Thread, loops three times catching the adhesive each loop.
  • Cut Whisper White bloom with framelit and one flower center.  With dauber and Daffodil Delight color flower center and center of stamen layer leaving tips white.  Add flower to card front with dimensionals.

Sometimes simple is best.  This card works for any occasion with a change of sentiment.  A great one to have in your stash!

I’m so glad you stopped by on this beautiful May day and hope you feel inspired to create art of your own.
