CASE Monday - Painted Harvest

Hello, my stamping friend!
And Happy Monday. Today I am CASing my own case from several months ago. This layout is my "go to" for quick cards. I tried to recreate it once again with my new favorite set - Painted Harvest.

Peekaboo Peach/Pumpkin Pie combo for flower with crumb cake for center and Old Olive for leaves:
Pool Party/Bermuda Bay for flowers and garden green for leaves
New in-color combo: Powder Pink/Berry Burst, Lemon Lime twist:
Another in-color combo: Powder Pink/Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide
Sweet Sugarplum/Rich Raspberry:
This was most unusual combo - sweet sugarplum/soft suede for flower. It gives the card very natural look:
Leaves are punched from vellum and champagne/copper foil.
 How Tos:

  • Card front is 8.5 x 5.5 piece of card stock scored at 4 1/4
  • Whisper white - 4 x 5 1/4. Take a framelit that you will use for sentiment and lightly trace inside of it on the whisper white piece. This will give you idea where to stamp flowers and leaves
  • Stamp flowers and leaves as desired. Adhere to card front
  • Punch accent leaves from vellum and foil. You can stamp on velum first than punch
  • Stamp sentiment on a scrap of whisper white, cut with the ftamelit
  • Add greeting with dimenstionals
  • You can add extra layer of soft sued between card front and white piece. If desired, reduce the whisper white piece to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 and cut soft sued 4 x 5 1/4.
That is all.Very quick to make and with so many colors - possibilities are endless! What color combo will you choose?
Place any order in my store and receive 2 of them in the mail.
Happy Stamping!

Christmas Friday - Card Kit Review

Hello, my stamping friend.
I am introducing new series - Christmas Friday. Even so it is only September, we all know how time flies and it is better to start get ready now.
The easiest option for mass production of Christmas cards this year is the project kit from the Holiday catalog. Those cards are truly easy to make, and you will only need one stamp set and ink.
I created a card using this stamp set. Here is what I came up with:

  • Real Red: 8 1/2 x 5 1/5 scored at 4 1/4, piece to dies cut circle
  • Old Olive: 4 x 5 1/4
  • Whisper White: 4 x 2 1/4, piece to cut the stitched circle
  • DSP: 4 x 2
  • Randomly stamp a tree with Old Olive ink on Old Olive piece, color with Wind of Stella
  • I added washi tape in a center of dsp glued on top of whisper white
  • I die cut than stamp, was much faster
  • add 3 rhinestones for dots of each 'i' 
Those cards truly come together very fast:
My suggestion - get the kit and stamp as a backup.
Happy Stamping!

Painted Harvest - Card #2

Hello, my stamping friend.
Today I want to share a card I made for an organized swap. As Painted Harvest was my #1 stamp set from Holiday catalog, I decided to use it. this is what I came up with.
It is actually double CASE. I cased the layout from the card  we made at Happy Hour class last month, what was the CASE from other demo:
I used crushed curry and pumpkin pie inks for the flower, and fussy cut them.
Happy Stamping!
