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

Painted Harvest

There are so many amazing options with this beautiful stamp set! I just can’t seem to put it down!!! So, I decided to show you the versatility of this awesome stamp set!

  • The sunflowers are a two-step stamp. So, each flower base is stamped in Daffodil Delight. Then the top layer either Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry, or Tangerine Tango
  • The next step was to add the centers in Smoky Slate with dots in Basic Gray and Lemon Lime Twist
  • Then add some ink splitters in Lemon Lime Twist, Smoky Slate, and Daffodil Delight
  • The leaves were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and punched with the new coordinating leaf punch.
  • The sentiment stamped in Smoky Slate and punched with the 2 inch circle punch. The background is the 2 1/4 inch circle punch
  • The gingham ribbon soften the card bringing it all together!

The second card is a quick and easy card that was super fun to make. I flipped the sketch and rotated the circle and banner. How fun is that????

 

  • The background was made with the Embossing Paste and Lemon Lime Twist ink refill. I just mixed a little ink into the Embossing Paste till I had the desired color.
  • Using one of the Decorative Mask and a pallet knife I added the texture to the card.
  • The flower was stamped in Daffodil Delight and Peekaboo Peach, The leaves in Lemon Lime Twist, The sentiment in Peekaboo Peach
  • The ribbon is the new Burlap Ribbon in the Holiday Catalog

A fun color combination for GDP097

The Global Design Project has a great color combination for us this week. It is Berry Burst, Wild Wasabi, and Crumb Cake.  Be sure you hop over to Global design Project and see all the fab. inspiration the design team has for us this week!  I think you will be quite impressed with what they came up with.  Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom and see all the wonderful creations by those playing along.

This lovely color combination is quite vestal. And should be kept in mind for all seasons. It makes beautiful summer flowers, awesome fall leaves, and would be wonderful for a modern Christmas Card!

I decided to pull out a stamp I had not used in a while. Defiantly Dahlia. This is a large background stamp that is us

I thought berry burst would be the perfect color for this sweet flower! And of course, I made another square card with it!!! I paired the Dahlia with a sentiment in the Climbing Orchids stamp set. I made three versions of the card for y’all today. The first two are the Global Design color combination. The third was a happy accident 😜

  • The Dahlia was stamped in Berry Burst on Shimmery White paper. You can’t really tell in the picture. But, this paper gives the stamped images a beautiful finish.
  • The thinking of you was stamped in Wild Wasabi.
  • The third step was to add the layers and ribbon

  • The Dahlia was stamped in Berry Burst again.
  • Then I used a baby wipe to add texture to the flower.
  • Next using another baby wipe I added Crumb Cake.

  •  The Dahlia was stamped in Basic Gray. You can see little spots of Berry Burst. That’s because I did not clean my stamp before reinking. I was planning on using Berry Burst, but picked up Basic Gray.
  • This one was so pretty just the way it was. That I decided to keep it extra simple and not add a bow
  • I really love how the Basic Gray picks up the detail of this stamp

The final cards are 5 1/2 by 5 1/2.  The Shimmery white layer is 4 1/8 by 4 1/8.  Then each layer is built out from there.  The two Wild Wasabi cards the layers are 4 1/8 , 4 3/8, 5, and the 5 1/2 card base.  The Basic Gray card layers are 41/8, 41/4, 5, and the 5 1/2 card base.

Crafty Friends! 

My Stampin’ Up! friends are amazing! They are full of kindness and compassion.  Each one of them brings there own sence of happy to this world! This is my favorite part of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is the friendships I have made. And the friendships that have grown stronger through stamping!!! It just makes my heart full!  Recently one of my Stampin’ Up! friends , Andrea sent me a card in the mail that she knew I loved. We are both part of the InKing Royalty. Brian King’s group!!! The best group ever!!! Anyway, Brian had a great little challenge for us in our InKing Royalty Facebook Group. The challenge was to make a card each day for 15 days! This challenge was so much fun and filled me with new ideas.  So, Andrea posted this card one of the days. I commented on how much I loved the card!  And guess what??? She sent me the card with the sweetest note inside!!! Is that not the nicest thing ever!! 

  • The background is from color theory paper! 
  • The chair and waves are from the seasonal layers dies
  • The sun is from stiched shapes dies and a few banners

There is so much to love about this card!  Here’s my top 3 reasons I love it!!!

  1.  The happy mood of the card!!! 
  2. The creative way Andrea used her dies. She fliped one to make waves. And her sun is just super smart! 
  3. There is no sentiment on tge outside! This card is just perfect standing alone as it is.  She used the inside of the card for a sentiment and a sweet note! Just perfect

Ink play with color insperation from Hacking the Color Wheel #hackingthecolorwheel

I hope each of you had a wonderful 4th of July! I spent my day working on a “mood” color swatch journal.  I actually made the journal. I have not put the cover on it yet. But, I have the pages bound together. And journal a little.  I am taking an art journaling class that is all about the Color Wheel. The class has been lots of fun! And I am learning so much. #hackingthecolorwheel. Today’s card is the result of my first page color combination in the journal.  This color combination is from a magazine page the teacher was using.  Hacking the Color Wheel is tought by Kiala Girehand and a whole host of other artist. This lesson was taught by Sherry Canino.  You can check out class info at Kiale Girehand 

Color inspiration in art journal

  • I love how combining ink colors we can make new shades that blend with existing colors
  • I’m not a big muted color fan. But, the green grey created by mixing smoky slate and crushed curry
  • Colors can create a certain mood. The magazine page that this combination was pulled from was a yoga pose in front of mountains. With splashes of bright color. The mood energizing..

  • The card base is ink smeared on a block with very little water. Then sliding the block across watercolor paper to create a textured pattern.
  • I cut off most of the Smoky Slate. But, you get a few hints of it in the green created when it mixed with Crushed Curry
  • The Berry Burst stands out as the star of the show!!!!
  • this card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2. (cut paper so that it is 11 by 5 1/2 and then score at 5 1/2 inches on the 11 inch side) The berry burst layer is 5 by 5. And the inked layer is 1/8th inch less
  • I adore using the Just add Text stamp set!  It is perfect for all the beautiful backgrounds you make!!!
