Enjoy Today…

Does your normal schedule just get whacked in the summertime?  There has been nothing normal about this summer so far.  And I don’t mean bad things are happening…just LOTS of things are happening.

Even with all the planning, planners and memory joggers there are times when it’s a struggle to keep up.  And you know what happens?  We forget to enjoy the day.

So today’s post is a reminder for me and maybe for you…

The Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder plays background for the Oh So Eclectic flowers.

And a closer look shows the Window Sheet and flowers on the inside too.

And a pretty Crinkled Night of Navy Seam Binding bow adds another dimension.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for today’s post…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White plus Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Pear Pizazz, Smoky Slate and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Oh So Eclectic and Climbing Orchid (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Night of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding, Linen Thread, White Craft Ink, White Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Eclectic Layers Thinlets, Window Sheet

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • Using the Pinewood Plank EF with Smoky Slate ink rubbed on the raised edge (Sizzix logo side) place the card front inside and emboss.  Immediately clean your EF with wet wipe.
  • Cut at 2-1/4″ from the 5-1/2″ fold line.
  • Cut a piece of Window Sheet 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Add SNAIL underneath the top front 2-1/4″ fold over and slide the window sheet under this fold over.  Press to be sure it is attached well.
  • Cut a 1-1/2″ piece from the remaining embossed panel and add to bottom of Window Sheet using SNAIL.Wipe front of window sheet with your Embossing Buddy.  Stamp sentiment in Craft White Ink on Window Sheet.  Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat using the low setting on your heat gun.  You can heat from back side too.
  • Cut a piece of the graduated navy DSP 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and attach to inside of card with SNAIL.
  • Stamp flowers on scrap Thick Whisper White.  You’ll need three of each size in Berry Burst, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.  Stamp two leaf and stems in Pear Pizzaz.  Cut all out with Thinlets.  Add to top front with multipurpose glue, single dimensional and double dimensionals at top and multipurpose glue at bottom and inside card.
  • Make a bow with several loops, tying center with Linen Thread.  Add to top of card front with glue dots.

So my thought for the day to myself is to enjoy this day and I offer that to you too!

Guy Note…

Probably most of us make a lot of cards (I know I do!), and it’s a pretty good bet that the majority of the cards we make are for our feminine friends and family.

Why is that?

  1. It would be easy to list several reasons quickly…
  2. Girl cards are cuter so more fun to make
  3. We can use flowers which most of us love
  4. And sweet, soft colors…etc.

And while all that may be true, guys like getting cards too.  Today’s card post is definitely for a male…

Now that’s cute in a guy sort of way…note the camo pen!

Here’s a close up…

In this side view you can see the frame and pen are raised with dimensionals.

And a peek inside…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Very Vanilla cardstock, water color paper and Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Soft Suede
  • Stamps:  Crafting Forever, Background Bits, Gorgeous Grunge (splat) and Soft Sayings Stamp Kit (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, Stitched Square Framelits, sponge,  water color pencils and small round brush

Digits

  • The Very Vanilla base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The DSP layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The top Very Vanilla layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Sponge edges with Soft Suede ink.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black.  Add script and splats in Soft Suede stamped off first.  Add a piece of Burlap Ribbon around the top of this layer and then add layer to card front over DSP with multipurpose glue.  Weight this layer with acrylic blocks to set.
  • Using a couple of pieces of burlap, tie a knot around ribbon.
  • Cut a frame using DSP and Stitched Square Framelits.  I used Strip Adhesive to attach to card front framing the sentiment.
  • The pen was stamped in Archival Basic Black. Let dry.  Color with Gray, Black and Old Olive water color pens.  Use small round brush and some water to smooth colors.  Fussy cut pen and add to card front using Strip Adhesive on back leaving a space with no adhesive so that the pen will fit over the frame.
  • Inside the Very Vanilla layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Sponge edges with Soft Suede.  Add splat stamp and script in Soft Suede that has been stamped off.  Cut a piece of DSP 1/2″ x 3-1/4″ and attach with SNAIL at bottom of layer.
  • The envelope isn’t pictured but I did add the script and splat stamps in Soft Suede to the lower left corner to coordinate with the card front.

So since this card sentiment says “just a note” this card would work for a birthday or thank you or just thinking of you.  Hope this helps you with ideas for the guys in your life.

Powder Pink Spotlight…

Seriously love this new shade of pink…an alternate name for it might have been Fairy Dust Pink…but that’s just me.

Today’s new InColor spotlight falls on Powder Pink and the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.  These floral patterns in the new InColors give you endless opportunities to create gorgeous cards…

The challenge for me is to use a piece of each pattern…

a glamour close up…

a side view for dimension…

and a peek inside (got that last DSP design in!)

If you love Blushing Bride pink (which I definitely do!) this new pink is lighter and softer in shade.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Powder Pink Cardstock, plus Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Sahara Sand and Powder Pink
  • Stamps:  Colorful Seasons
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The first layer of Powder Pink CS is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to the card front with SNAIL
  • The second layer of Fresh Florals DSP is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The diagonal DSP layer was cut 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Place one top corner on paper cutting line and the opposite bottom corner and cut diagonally.  Add one layer to card front with SNAIL.
  • Cut a piece of Pink Powder CS 2-5/8″ x 3-5/8″ and a piece of Thick Whisper White the same size.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black on white layer and chair stamps using Sahara Sand and Pink Powder.  Attach these to layers together askew then add to card front with dimensionals.
  • Inside the Powder Pink layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ as is the Thick Whisper White layer.  Attach these two layers together askew with SNAIL.  Fussy cut floral design and add with SNAIL. Add DSP strip at bottom of Whisper White layer 1/2″ x 3-1/4″ with SNAIL.
  • I didn’t take a pic of the coordinating envelope, but the envelope flap was lined with the Fresh Floral DSP

We are still decompressing for our whirlwind weekend trip to NYC and processing everything we were able to fit in such a short trip…amazing!  Because this trip was 100% kid oriented, we didn’t get to the 911 Memorial which I really wanted to see.  Guess Sweetums and I will have to go back!

Hope you are having a terrific day…today was Stampin’ Up!’s Demo Pre-order day!  This demo was up early to get my picks processed and on their way.  So many beautiful things to share with you.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Life Looks Beautiful…

Today is the last of this series of cards using the Beautiful You stamp set, but certainly not the last time this set will be used.

In addition to the images in this set being somewhat retro (which I love!) the sentiments are so expressive for today times.

Here’s the card…

and a close up of the masking…

You can catch a peek here of the envelope flap with coordinating Designer Series Paper.

So just like the two cards recently posted, this one too uses the masking technique.  Would you like to give this a try?  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock and Falling In Love Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Sky Blue and Smoky Slate
  • Stamps:  Beautiful You, Gorgeous Grunge (splat) Wherever You Go
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Post It Note, sponge, Blender Pen

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The DSP layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The top Whisper White layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.  Cut a piece of copy paper this same size, make a slit in center with snips and tear away the shape you want to sponge on your card front layer.  Add SNAIL to all corners and around torn edge.  Take away most of the sticky with your fingers then add this layer on top.  Stamp girl image in Archival Basic Black.  Then stamp again on Post It and “fussy cut”.  Add SNAIL to back, take away the stickiness and add this over the girl image.
  • Now sponge over the area exposed with Soft Sky.  Stamp bridge in Smoky Slate and sun rays in Daffodil Delight and Gorgeous Grunge in Soft Sky.  If you stamp and drag the rain effect is achieved.
  • Remove mask from girl and color with ink that has been transferred from ink pad to the lid of the pad and a Blender Pen.  Here dress is Blushing Bride as is a lighter color for her skin.  Hat is Daffodil Delight.
  • Remove bigger mask and stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black.  Do you love it?  Masking (I say this all the time) is my favorite stamping technique!
  • Add this layer to card front with SNAIL.
  • Inside there is a 1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of DSP attached with SNAIL along bottom edge.
  • The flap of the envelope has been covered with coordinating DSP.

I bet you are wondering if that lil’ baby arrived yet…nope!  He has his own idea of when he wants to celebrate his birthday…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

seriously.

Or you could stamp…and be HaPpY!

Hello Succulents…

How many ways can you love a bundle?  The Oh So Succulent Bundle on page 21 of the Occasions Catalog has to be one of the top sellers in this catalog.  This bundle confirms my original thought when seeing it…there’s nothing you can’t make from paper…

Today’s post uses an old technique with a new product to perfection…

In the background is yet another project with this bundle…

Stamped or three dimensional this set is right on trend.

A close up of the coloring technique that keeps the colors vibrant on the Crumb Cake cardstock.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits on this card and the coloring technique…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Crumb Cake and Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Craft White
  • Stamps:  Oh So Succulent and Water Color Wishes Kit Stamp Set (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Succulent Framelit Dies, White Embossing Powder, Water Color Pencils and Black Micron Pen (size .005) or substitute Project Life Journaling Pen

Digits

  • The Crumb Cake base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The Whisper White layer is 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The top Crumb Cake layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Before attaching to card front over Whisper White with SNAIL, rub surface with “stamping Buddy” and stamp plants in bottom right corner with solid stamps (not outline) in Craft White Ink along with sentiment of your choice in Craft White Ink.  Cover with White Embossing Powder and heat.
  • Using SU! water color pencils, color plants.  I used Daffodil Delight with Old Olive for shading and Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry plus Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point.  I did not use water on this project, but there will be one in a day or two.
  • Lastly, the border is drawn by hand with a Black Micron pen and a window sheet cut 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Draw around any images that fall within that space.  Add dots to border
  • Inside the card there is a layer of Whisper White 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.

Without the layers of Craft White Ink and Embossing, you would not be able to maintain these vibrant colors.  It’s just a little bit of magic.

I want to say to all my blog readers…You are AWESOME!  I love all the comments and getting to know you and the types of projects you are interested in seeing and learning.  It’s such a help to me when searching for new ideas and it helps me learn new things too.

And know that there is always an open invitation for you to join my team.  In fact we have a virtual card making class and meeting (well…we will be chatting while we play) coming in the next couple of weeks.  Why not come along with us?  Signing up isn’t a life decision…it’s a no brainer!  Especially during the Sale-A-Bration months of January, February and March with free products and no obligations.  I’d love to talk to you if you are the least bit interested…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

You & Me…

On a regular basis cards are made and sent to my sister who suffers with Alzheimer’s Disease.  She has been in a care facility for over five years now.  She is such a beautiful person inside and out.  She will enjoy this one…

sybilart

How sweet is she?  Because this is so visual and something she will recognize, I know she will love it.

This card showcases the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper…lots of fun to work with.  And you can see the coordinating Washi Tape holder…holds the tape perfectly!  Got this idea from Sam Hammond earlier this week.

  • The second smaller vertical Crumb Cake layer is 1 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ attached to card front overlapping first vertical layer centered top to bottom and set over 1/2″ to right.
  • Stamp the artist easel on Crumb Cake cardstock with Soft Suede ink and “fussy cut”.  The photo was cut 2″ square with a 2″ square of fun foam glued to back and then to easel frame.  Add easel to card front tilted to left.
  • Stamp Banner with Soft Suede on Very Vanilla cardstock and add sentiment. Then punch with Duet Banner Punch.  Also punch a Crumb Cake and Watermelon Wonder banner.  Glue together and then attach to card front with dimensionals.
  • Inside there is a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ layer of Watermelon Wonder with a Very Vanilla layer 3 3/8″ x 4 3/8″ attached with adhesive.  I used the sentiment “Our friendship is a work of art!”

So maybe this will add a little ray of sunshine for her this week…she deserves all she can get.

Vintage Leaves Watercolor…

Making a fall themed card was the furthest thing in my mind today…but this beautifully colored piece of watercolor paper was sitting on my desk…

Then this happened…

vintageleaves

That just makes me feel cooler looking at those fall colors.  Well, shoot, when you consider we will be getting the Holiday Catalog next week,  an autumn card in the middle of summer doesn’t seem that odd.

These leaves were cut from a piece of watercolor paper that had been sprinkled with Ken Oliver’s Color Burst dry pigment and spritzed with water.  However, if you wanted to use reinker instead, you could spritz the watercolor paper first and then drop reinker on the paper and let it do it own thing.  Either way you’ll get beautiful fall leaves for your card.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this one…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Delightful Dijon, Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla and Tip Top Taupe cardstock, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Tip Top Taupe, Memento Black and Soft Suede

  • The Bermuda Bay layer is 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, attached to card front with adhesive
  • The Tip Top Taupe layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″, stamped with the Netting background stamp in Tip Top Taupe (2nd generation) then any of the other stamps in the Amazingly Artistic set you like.  Use Soft Suede for the fern leaves.  Attach this layer with adhesive.
  • Stamp the dragon fly using the “rock ‘n roll” method in Delightful Dijon and Bermuda Bay on a scrap of cardstock and “fussy cut”.  Cut some dimensionals for the wings and set aside.
  • Stamp with Memento Black and the Vintage Leaves stamp set on your watercolored paper and cut out with framelits.  Attach the two larger leaves with tombow glue.  Add dimensionals to the smaller leaves, tie with Linen Thread and add to card front.
  • Add dragon fly to card front.
  • Inside there is a 3 1/2″ x 4″ Very Vanilla layer stamped with one of the leaves using the “rock ‘n roll” method.
  • You can see the envelope has also been stamped to coordinate with the card.

Sometimes it’s the little things…

So Zoe did “kill” her Minion yesterday.  It finally quit yelling MONDAY! and now she couldn’t care less about it.  She wants a new one…nope.

Things here are crazy in the studio.  Finished all my classes on Monday so I can make a big mess and not have to worry about it.  My goal is to leave it clean…ummmm, not sure that will happen by the looks of it right now though.

I will be sharing snapshots from Salt Lake City each day on my facebook page at Rambling Rose Studio.  If you’d like to search and “like” it, I’ll try to keep you up to date while I’m there.  It will be so exciting to reunite with friends made over the years…that’s the BEST part of convention…but so much of it is just fun.  I’m sure Shelli (the CEO) will be greatly missed this year.  That part will be very different.

Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for taking time to stop by my studio.

Mojo Monday Entry…

Had every intention to post this card yesterday.

Then I lost the no line circle…looked forever and never found it.

Went to Plan “B” and repainted that circle for today’s post.

Honestly, how can you lose something like that you just had a minute ago?

So here is the card I had planned to show you yesterday…today.

So….the big brown truck came again today with my new product order….squeal!!!  Tomorrow’s post should be a good one.  Be sure to stop by.

Butterfly Wishes…

Here’s a technique you might enjoy trying.  It’s made with the Basic Butterfly stamp set and framelits.

I love the effect of the butterfly flying right out of the front of the card.  Here’s how you do it if you haven’t tried it yet…

halfbutterfly

Isn’t that pretty?  I purposely left the sentiment off until this card is ready to be sent.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black and your choice of DSP
  • Ink:  Memento Black
  • Stamps:  Basic Butterfly
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Basic Butterfly Framelits

Digits

  • The Very Vanilla base card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • The Basic Black layer is 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • The top Very Vanilla layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Cut a Basic Black butterfly and set aside.
  • Position your top Very Vanilla layer on a cutting pad on top of the magnetic board.  Now lay down the butterfly framelit and position the top cutting pad from the midpoint of the framelit out.  Run through the Big Shot.  Turn the magnetic board around and reposition the top cutting pad so that you are cutting the other side of the butterfly leaving the center uncut.
  • Adhere the Basic Black layer to the card front.
  • Adhere your DSP of choice to the center of the Basic Black layer.
  • From the back of your Very Vanilla layer, place the cut out Basic Black butterfly.  Add Tomboy glue to the back of the butterfly and Very Vanilla cardstock and attach to the card front
  • Stamp the smaller butterfly on a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut with framelit.  Attach to top of Very Vanilla butterfly.
  • The antennae are hand drawn.  The center of the butterfly is a long skinny triangle of Basic Black rolled from the fat end first and glue with Tomboy.  Glue to center of butterfly.
  • You can see I have stamped some of the smaller butterflies to the envelope to coordinate.

This is really an impressive card in person.  I hope you will give it a try.
