Merry Café

Yesterday, I shared a sweet pouch box that is perfect for a set of cards. You can see the pouch box here. Today, I’m sharing the cards that will go into the pouch as a gift! I used the same products to make coordinating cards.  The Merry Café is defiantly a favorite stamp set.

Merry Café

I love how this set coordinates with the Coffee Café bundle in the annual catalog.  The little perk up even coordinates with the small coffee cup die. What fun!

Coffee Café Bundle

I mix and match stamps from both sets all the time! I love the sketched look of the coffee cup in Merry Café so I use it a lot!!! I also adore the little coffee beans in the Coffee Café set !   They both go perfectly with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

I adore this paper! I seem to be wanting to use it on every project! The colors are just amazing and there are some watercolor wash pages that I just love!!

  • The colors are Cajun Craze, Soft Sky, and Chocolate Chip.
  • The thanks a latte (Coffee Café) is stamped in Soft Sky!  I promise thought, I’m wondering if I used Pool Party to ink my Soft Sky Ink Pad.
  • The coffee cup(Merry Café) is stamped on designer series paper then die cut with the coordinating dies Along with the coffee lid on Cajun Craze
  • The coffee cup sleeve is die cut in Crumb Cake
  • The little adorable espresso beans are stamped on Very Vanilla with Chocolate Chip ink
  • The background is a few stamps from the Merry Café set using Old Olive and Cajun Craze

 

  • The colors used are Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black
  • The Daffodil Delight layer is embossed with the layers leaves embossing folder
  • The sentiment is from the Merry Café set. How fun is that sentiment
  • The yellow peeping out behind the Cajun Craze coffee cup sleeve is made by cutting a yellow sleeve then cutting it in half and glueing it to the back of the other coffee  sleeve.

The card base is a Very Vanilla Note Cards (4 bar size)  The Stampin’ Up! Note Cards and envelopes are perfect for this size of card!!!  The layers are as fallows

  • 3 3/8 by 5 7/8 inches

Happy New Year

The host set in the Holiday Catalog is such a fun whimsical set! I love the sketched feel of the set. I love that the ornaments are perfect for coloring. I love the simplicity of the sentiments and the stamps.

Season of Whimsy

The Other is always wanting new years cards.  So, I decided to make a few using the sparkler! It is just too much fun!

  • The colors used are Pool Party, Powder Pink, and Champagne Foil
  • The Champagne Foil is beautiful embossed. Here it is embossed with the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder
  • The sparkler is heat embossed. I wanted something similar to the Champagne Foil and something shimmery. So I took silver embossing powder and added a little gold, a little copper, and some dazzling diamonds. Shook it all up for a unique color.
  • The final touch was to add some copper thread. I’m a huge fan of the mixed metal look. The Champagne Foil lends itself to this look quite well

A note about the Champagne Foil it is not this gold looking in real life. Unfortunately, even after trying several time of day, the foil photographed quite gold looking.

Here’s a up close of the mixed embossing powders

The card base in a Whisper White Notecard & Envelope.  The Pool Party layer is 4 7/8 by 3 3/8 inches. The Champagne Foil is 4 3/4 by 3 1/4 inches and embossed. The small Pool Party layer is 3 5/8 by 2 1/8 inches.  The stamped layer is 3 1/2 by 2 inches. The ribbons used are Powder Pink shimmery ribbon and Soft Sky classic weave ribbon.

At Home with you sweet puppy

It is always a sweet moment when a friend brings a new pet home.  A friend recently got a new puppy.  So, of course I had to make them a card that will go along with a gift from my favorite pet store. Come Sit Stay in Nashville, Tn.  This store is amazing and the owner Robin always knows just the right gift! She is amazing at what she does. So when you are in Nashville be sure to stop by her store! You want be disappointed!

For the card, I used the stamp set bundle At Home With You! This set is super fun! I love the door and all the seasonal decorations!!

At Home With You Bundle

I love the classy modern feel of this stamp set!!! How fun is it to have a beautiful door to decorate.

  • Each element was stamped and then watercolored using watercolor pencils and ink refills.
  • Then using the coordinating dies, each element was cut out
  • The background is the brick walls embossing folder and the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper(available Sep. 1)
  • The door has a special die that cuts it on three sides allowing the door to open.
  • That cute little dog is from the build a bike bundle. Is he not just adorable in front of the door…

The door opens up for a sweet message. That was created using a little masking, stamp surgery (yes I cut a sentiment in half 😱…it will be okay 😜. I put him back together with ❤ …😂), and the Brushwork Alphabet set.

Watercolor Wings

We have many New and Wonderful stamp set with the Annual Catalog and up coming Holiday Catalog.   It would be really easy to forget about the amazing stamps we already had… I don’t want them to get lonely.  So make sure you get them inky from time to time!  I decided to us my Watercolor Wings stamp set today.  For this very reason.  It had been a while sence the stamps has seen ink and they were feeling a little left out! That’s just no good.  So, I gave them a little love with two challenges today.  The SU!Only Challenge and The Fab. Friday Challenge. The Fab. Friday has a great sketch challenge going on right now!

The SU!Only Challenge is featuring butterflies and dragonflies. How fun is that!!

Earley in the week was the Inking Royalty Blog Hop.  Lynn Kolcun featured a card that uses Stampin’ Up! ink refills on a gel plate to create a fun background. She had cased the technique from Lydia at Understand Blue.  So, now I’m CASEing both of them. What fun!!!

Watercolor Wings is one of those stamp sets that I just love! It makes it so easy to make pretty butterflies by layering the stamps!

Watercolor Wings

The butterflies in this set are gorgeous. The stamp I use the most is the little dots in a row! I love this set so much and those dots!!.

  • The panel that looks like watercolor is glossy white paper , inks, and a pressed with the gel plate.  Very similar to watercolor smooching. I used Marina Mist, Pool Party, and Lemon Lime Twist
  • After doing the gel plate technique I added some ink spatters in Tranquil Tide and Smoky Slate. Using my markers to flick color onto the card
  • The colors for the butterfly are Daffodil Delight, Powder Pink, and Calypso Coral.
  • The ribbon is New in the Holiday Catalog! 5/8″ burlap ribbon
  • The sequins are from the iridescent mix
  • The Pool Party layer is embossed with the polka dot basics embossing folder

Each of your comments makes me smile! Please, comment HERE.

The envelope was given a little love as well. Using the small butterfly and the dots I love so much!

Feather Together

I loved yesterday’s Inking Royalty blog hop! It was so much fun hopping with my stamping friends.    If you would like to see the Fall Fav. Hop click here.   What awesome fall inspiration was shared!

My card for you today is a Faux Batik card using the Feather Together Stamp Set.  I love feather stamps. And have owned several over the years.  This one is just extra lovely to me!

Feather Together

This is a stamp layering set.  So you can layer the stamps to make a feather that looks like it has dimension.

Faux Batik is one of those techniques that I just can’t get enough of right now! I am just loving it!

  • The colors used are Always Artichoke, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry
  • I picked three of the feather layers and heat embossed them onto tissue paper for the Faux Batik technique.
  • I taped a border using painters tape on shimmery white paper
  • After adding the embossing to the tissue, lay the tissue over your paper (shimmery White in this case)  and use a baby whips to add color to the tissue.  This will “transfer” the image to the card.
  • The sentiment is heat embossed with copper embossing powder
  • The copper foil and the Smoky Slate card base lightens up the card! This make the feathers pop!

Each of your comments makes me smile! Please, comment HERE.
