Fast Friday - Wetlands at the State Park

Today's Fast Friday layout is from a weekend getaway my husband and I took to Maine last fall.  One of the days was so warm, that we decided to go hang out at the state park.  It had some nice cool water, but living on the coast, we're used to the ocean!


For this layout, I used Old Olive for the background and Sahara Sand for the inner layer.  The smaller piece of DSP is from the old Welcome Neighbor pack, mounted on Pool Party.  The larger piece is from the Sweet Li'l Things pack mounted on Old Olie.  The pictures are both mounted on Sahara Sand and Old  Olive.  The paper small paper with the trees and clouds is also from the Welcome Neighbor pack mounted on Old Olive.   I stamped  the goose from the Wetlands set in the lower left corner in Sahara Sand.  I finished it off with a littlle Vermont license plate sticker that I had in my stash.

This layout came together in less than 20 minutes.  I  think the trick to making it look like it's more detailed and time consuming is the layering of the papers.  Layering takes no time at all, but it gives layouts such a  great look.

Happy scrappin' and stampin'!

Throw Back Thursday - Time for Tea

Today's Throwback Thursday has a current retired item and a way-back retried item!  I made this for a special lady for her birthday.


The DSP is from the very old Print Poetry, and the card base is Raspberry Ripple from the 2012-2014 In Colors.  The cups, spoon, and tea bag label were all die cut from the Cups and Kettle Thinlit set from the 2016 Occasions catalog.  The doily is embossed using the Delicate Designs embossing folder which has been retired for a couple of years as well.

The card came together pretty easily.  First I cut the card base, middle layer, and card front.  Then I embossed the doily and fussy cut the scallops.  The next step was to die cut three cups, the spoon (from the gold foil sheet paper) and the tea bag label.  I stamped the sentiment and attached a bit of twine to the tea bag and that was it.  Not much stamping at all this time!

Cardstock:  Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White
DSP:  Print Poetry
Other Paper:  Gold Foil Sheet
Thinlits:  Cups and Kettle

I just love this DSP, and have hoarded it because once it's gone, it's gone!

I hope you will come back tomorrow for a Fast Friday layout!

Happy Stampin'!

Washi Wednesday with Wetlands

For today's Washi Wednesday card, I've again used the Wetlands stamp set.  It uses more masking (sorry about what turned out to be a masking week!).




For this one, I punched out a 2 1/2 circle.  I then put a piece of masking tape across it and sponged the water with Pool Party.  Next, I placed a piece of masking tape over the water.  I punched out a 1" circle and placed it where I wanted the sun to appear..  I sponged the sunset with So Saffron and a touch of Pumpkin Pie.  The reeds were stamped with Wild Wasabi.  I attached it towards the top of the card front and then added a piece of washi tape from the retired Beach House collection; added the sentiment, and the card was done.

Cardstock:  Pool Party, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink:  Pool Party Party, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi
Stamp Set: Wetlands

Although this week ended up having lots of masking, and although all the cards used the same stamp set, I think they all have very different feels to them.  Changing up the colors and the masking techniques made each of these cards pretty unique, don't you agree?

Check back tomorrow for a Throwback Thursday project.

Technique Tuesday - Reverse Masking

Welcome to Technique  Tuesday.  I've chosen to do a reverse masking with the Wetlands stamp set for today's card.


With typical masking, you cover up an image that you do not want to stamp over; with reverse stamping, you expose the portion of the paper you want the ink to appear on. For this one, I used one of the dies from the Square Framelits set and cut out a frame to use as my template.  I placed the frame over my card front and then sponged the different colors in the center of the frame so that it would appear nice and neatly once I removed the template.

The  colors, from top to bottom, are Soft Sky, Marina Mist, and Crumb Cake.  The reeds were stamped with Crumb Cake, and the sentiment was stamped in Marina Mist.  A very nice card in a short amount of time!  If my instructions are confusing, I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have!

Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Whisper White

Masculine Monday with Wetlands

It's Masculine Monday and this week I've decided to showcase the Wetlands set.  After I finished my projects, it occurred to me that all three of my  cards for the week all used masking in one way or another -- although they are different uses of masking!


For this card, I used painter's tape to mask off the part of the card front that I didn't want the stamping to appear. It's important to use low tack tape or else you will tear paper when you remove it.  After I masked off the portion that I wanted to ink up, I applied Bermuda Bay towards the top section and Sahara Sand towards the bottom.  Then I carefully peeled back the tape.  I stamped the reeds in soft Suede and the seagulls in Basic Gray.  I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede.  I love being able to make a card using only one stamp set!

Cardstock:   Bermuda  Bay, Whisper White, Sahara Sand
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Basic Gray
Stamp Set:  Wetland

Give it a try -- you can do so much with ink and masking tape!!

Fast Friday Layout

Today is Fast Friday, and this layout came together really fast -- it doesn't look like it did though, does it?


There really were only a few cuts to this.  The background paper is from the retired Farmer's Market DSP.  I cut a small strip  from a second piece from the Farmer's Market and mounted it on Hello Honey.  The pictures were all cut the same height -- and all the bottom ones are also the same width.  I didn't mount them individually, but instead mounted them together to cut down on cutting.  I stamped the title using the Labeler Alphabet set onto Very Vanilla mounted on Mossy Meadow.  The bottom embellishment was made with the Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating framelit, Everyday Jars.  The words "with lots of" are from the Labeler Alphabet, and the word "love" is from the Jar of Love set.  A small piece of embroidery floss on the bottle and it was done! 

I just love when I can get a layout done in less than half an hour, don't you??  Sometimes I end up taking hours to finish a layout to get it "just right", after which I find myself exhausted!  At that rate, I'll never scrap all the pages I want to!

What's the quickest layout you ever made?

Happy scrappin'!

It's Throwback Thursday - Eat Chocolate!

Today's Throwback Thursday stamp set is called "Eat Chocolate".    I made these cute little ATCs for a swap on scrapbook.com.  The theme I chose was my birthday month -- October  Well, who knew that National  Chocolate Day is in October (on the 28th this year).  Perfect for me, because I LOVE chocolate.



The ATC is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.  All the layers are Chocolate Chip.  The first layer is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.  The next layer is 2 3/8 x 3 3/8.  The chocolate bar sections are made by pop dotting  1" squares and then 3/4" squares on top of that.  All the edges were sponged with Chocolate Chip ink so the layers would pop.   To make the wrapper, I cut a piece of DSP from the pack, Fresh Prints, and tore it at a bit of an angle.  I taped it to some aluminum foil and crinkled the foil as shown.    I wrapped the edges around the back and bottom.  The label was made by stamping the words in Chocolate Chip onto Very Vanilla and punched out with the large oval punch and layered onto the scalloped oval.  Done!

Cardstock:  Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
DSP:  Fresh Prints
Stamp Set:  Eat Chocolate
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Punches:  Large Oval, Scalloped Oval

Washi Wednesday Thank You Card

It's Washi Wednesday today, and this is a card I recently made for some students for the thoughtful end-of-the-year gifts I was given.  It was an easy design to make assembly line style, and still look like a lot of thought went into  it.


The card base is Thick Whisper White, and the card base is Whisper White.  First I stamped the small mason jar from the Jar of Love set in Basic Black.  I then stamped two bees in the jar.  I stamped them in Basic Black and colored them in with a Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker.  I did the same on a piece of scrap paper and then die cut it with the coordinating die from the Everyday Jars set and pop dotted it. Next stamping was the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler from the same set.  I added some washi tape from the Gingham Garden set (retired long ago!)  That was how it was originally designed, but when I looked at it, I thought there was too much Daffodil Delight so I cut 1/4" strips of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and added it over the washi tape.  It still looked like something was missing, so I added the white gel pen stitching.

Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Stamp Set:  Jar of Love
Framelit: Everyday Jars
Ink:  Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler

Technique Tuesday - Watercoloring

Welcome to Technique Tuesday.  I've chosen to do a watercolor technique using the Lots of Love stamp set.  I'll have to admit that this was one of the first times I've done this technique, but it was pretty easy.


I hope I can explain this without sounding too confusing!

The card front is watercolor paper.  The first thing I did was spritz it with water until it was good and wet.  Then I stamped the blue water in Marina Mist using thee water image in the stamp set.  As soon as I stamped it, the colors ran.  Then I did the same with the two greenery images using Wild Wasabi.  Next is lightly sponged the background of the card front with Marina Mist. Then I dried the paper using my heat tool.  Once the paper was dry, I stamped the  greenery images using Momento Black over the watercolored green images-- do not use a water based stamp as it won't work.  Next I stamped the outline of the jar, also using Memento Black.  I made the flowers using the same technique using the Flower Shoppe set and Daffodil Delight.  I added metal rimmed brads to the centers of the flowers as well as some Daffodil Delight seam binding to finish off the card.  The card front is mounted o Whisper  White and then onto Daffodil Delight.

If I've confused you at all, or if you have any questions, please contact me and I'll try to clarify!

Check back tomorrow for a Washi Wednesday project.

Masculine Monday - Ship in a Bottle

It's Masculine Monday, and this week's stamp set is Jar of Love.   At first, I was a bit stumped, but once I started, it all came together. I just love when that happens!


The card base is Sahara Sand; the middle layer is Whisper White, and the card front is Pool Party.  I embossed a piece of vellum using the Softly Falling folder and layered that on top of the card front.  I was going for the look of bubbles in the water.

For the image, I stamped the boat from the Swirly Bird set on Whisper White (bottom is Soft Suede, and sail is Real Red).  I daubed Pool Party around it, and die cut it using the Everyday Jars Framelits.  then I stamped the jar on vellum using Mememto Black Ink.  I added slivers of dimensionals along the edge to raise the vellum from the stamped image.  I tied a bit of dark brown embroidery floss around the top of the bottle.

I wrapped some embroidery floss along the bottom of  the card and then attached the sentiment (from the Jar of Love set) punched out with the retired oval punch.

Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Pool Party, Whisper White
Paper: Vellum
Ink:  Soft Suede, Real Red, Black Memento, Chocolate Chip
Stamp Set: Jar of Love, Swirly Bird
Framelits: Everyday Jars
Embossing Folder:  Softly Falling


Check back tomorrow for a Technique Tuesday project using the Bundle of Love set.

Fast Friday - Scrapbook Layout

Today's Fast Friday project is a scrapbook layout of my younger daughter's 11th birthday.  Again, I used Stylized Birthday stamp.  I must admit, though, that it was going pretty quickly, until I decided to change the placement of the balloons, and ended up tearing some of the paper.  So I had to die cut the date to cover it, and it then wasn't as fast as it originally was.


The background paper is Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry.  The DSP is from the retired set Kaleidescope.   The strip of DSP across the middle is the backside of the polka dot piece, so I only used one piece of DSP.  The pictures are mounted on Whisper White and Melon Mambo.  The title is stamped in  Crushed Curry on Whisper White and mounted on Melon Mambo.  

I used the Birthday Banners stamp set to stamp the candles (Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry), and fussy cut them by hand.  The balloons are stamped using the Birthday Banners set an Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo ink and punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch.  They are tied together with Bermuda Bay baker's twine.

The "11" is die cut from the Little Numbers Thinlits set, as is the date.  The date is mounted on a banner made with the Triple Banner punch.

In total, this entire layout -- including the extra die cutting for the date -- was under an hour.

I hope you've enjoyed this first week of projects.  Please come back again on Monday for a Masculine Monday project.

Happy Stampin'!

Throwback Thursday - Just Jeans

Today's Throwback Thursday features the retired "Just Jeans" background stamp.  I just LOVE this stamp.  I've seen techniques online to make the denim look, but with this stamp, it's just ink and stamp!

I made this card for my husband this passed Father's Day.  He's a "jeans" guy through and through, so it was perfect for him.  The one thing I would probably do differently next time would be to make the card front a full card base size rather giving it a border.  The card base and the card front are both Marina Mist, and the ink is also Marina Mist.



To make the stitching, I used a ruler to pierce holes at 1/4" increments.  Then I used a whit gel pen to make a line to the left and right of the stitches.  That seemed a bit harsh, so I wend over it with some white craft ink to soften it.  I also made white lines connecting the holes.  After the white craft ink was dry, I very lightly sponged a bit of Marina Mist down the center of the stitches to give a more realistic  look.  To make the pocket, I used the Banner Framelits and did the same stitching technique.  I added two brushed bronze brads to the pocket to resemble gromets.  To finish up the denim, I lightly sponged the edges with Marina Mist.

The tag is made with Soft Suede.  Before I inked it up, I crumpled it into a wad to give it a leathery look.  I did the stitches the same way as the jeans, but only  used one row.   The sentiment is from the Guy Greetings set, stamped in Chocolate Chip.

The whole process was a trial and error; I just kept playing with the white highlights and the inking until I got the look I was after.  He loved it, and that's the most important thing!

Cardstock:  Marina Mist, Soft Suede
Stamp Set:  Just Jeans, Guy Greetings
Framelit:  Banners
Other:  White Gel Pen, mini brads

Please come back tomorrow to see a "Fast Friday" project!

Washi Wednesday - Happy Birthday

Welcome to Washi Wednesday.  Today I've used the Stylized Birthday stamp again to make this quick Birthday card.


This card, no exaggeration took me about 10 minutes to put together!  The hardest part of this card (and it wasn't hard AT ALL) was the "to you" for the sentiment.  I used only part of the stamp from Guy Greetings that says "Hats off to you".  I only inked up the "to you" because that's all I needed.

Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White, Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamp Set:  Stylized Birthday, Birthday Banners, Guy Greetings, Painter's Palette
Ink:  Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy
Washi  Tape:  Playful Palette
Framelit:  Bunch of Banners

Technique Tuesday - Emboss Resist with a Twist

Happy Tuesday!  Today is Technique Tuesday, and I chose to do a card using the emboss resist technique, but with a little twist.  Instead of using the usual white embossing powder, I used a soft lavender.  It's an old SU powder that I had in my stash that I thought I'd play with.


I will admit, it took a bit of getting used to, and it basically does just look like lavender embossing on a card, but the ease of making the card was perfect.  

To make the card, first stamp the sentiment using Versamark embossing ink.  Then cover it with embossing powder and heat set.  To make the background, ink up a sponge in Bermuda Bay and lightly pass it through the middle at an angle.  Then to the top and bottom of the that color, do the same with Pear Pizzazz, follow with more  Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz until the entire card is covered.  After all the inking is done, run a soft cloth over the embossed sentiment to remove any excess ink.  Voila!

Cardstock:  Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, Versamark Embossing Ink
Embossing Powder:  Lavender
Stamp: Stylized Birthday
Ribbon:  Pear Pizzazz seam binding

Give it a try!

Please come back tomorrow for Washi Wednesday!

Masculine Monday - Happy Birthday

Welcome to the first day of a new blog series!  During the months of July and August, I will be posting projects on weekdays -- Masculine Monday, Technique Tuesday, Washi Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, and Fast Friday.  My hope is to use one stamp set throughout the week on the projects (except, of course, on Throwback Thursday when I'll be using an older, retired set).  Because I have set dates where I post specific types of projects (1st of the month, Blogging Friends Blog Hop 10th of the month - Inspiration projects; 15th of the month - a layout; and 20th of the month ATCs), I'm going to try to incorporate this new series into those posts.  I hope you can join me for a summer full of fun projects.

So, without further hesitation, here is the first in the series for Masculine Monday.  The stamp set that I'll be using this week is Stylized Birthday.


This card was quick and easy.  I used the reverse mask technique on this card. To make center hardwood image, I cut a piece of paper the same size as the card front and roughly cut out an oval in the center.  I placed it on top of the card front that I was using for the final project and stamped the Hardwood stamp, inked with Always Artichoke onto it.  The result is that only the center of the card front was stamped.    Next I stamped up the Stylized Birthday stamp in Early Espresso.  The middle layer is Early Espresso, and the card base is Always Artichoke.  I added three candy dots in Always Artichoke in the upper right corner and then tied a piece of Always Artichoke denim ribbon (retired) along the bottom.  That's it . . . quick, simple and masculine!  This could easily be made for a woman by changing the colors, adding rhinestones or pearls in the upper corner, and tieing the ribbon into a bow along the bottom.

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso
Ink:  Early Espresso, Always Artichoke
Stamps:  Hardwood, Stylized Birtheday
Other:  Candy Dots in Always Artichoke, Always Artichoke denim ribbon

I hope you can come back tomorrow to see a new project for Technique Tuesday!

Happy Stampin'!

July Blog Hop - Summer Fun


Welcome to the July  Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month's theme is Summer Fun, and I'm sure you will find some great inspiration from all of the very talented bloggers in this group!  If you've been following along on the blog hop, you have arrived here from Crystal's blog.  At the end of this post, you will find a link to the next blog, as well as a list with links for all the other bloggers.  Sit back and enjoy the summer projects!

I've worked in a school  for the last 15 years and, up until 3 years ago, always had the summers off so I could be home with my girls.  My neighbor also worked a similar job, so when school was out, we would get together with our kids and swim in my pool and end up around the fire pit enjoying some summery drinks -- some alcoholic, and some not!  This new stamp set, Mixed Drinks, immediately brought back memories of those summer days.


The card base is Flirty Flamingo and each "drink" is stamped on Whisper Whit and mounted on the same color as the stamped image.  The top row is Daffodil Delight (we love drinking out of Mason jars) and Blushing Bride (pink lemonade); the bottom row is Sweet Sugarplum (a yummy frozen concoction) and Peekaboo Peach (an orange sherbert float).  I happened to have some pearls that were the same color as the Flirty Flamingo and used them as embellishments (I needed one for an ink smudge so I decided to use a few more!  I used a bit of Wink of Stella on all the drinks, but it doesn't show up good in the picture.

Cardstock:  Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach, Thick Whisper White, Whisper White
Stamp Set:  Mixed Drinks
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Sweek Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral (straw in the pink lemonade), Real Red (cherry in the float)
Ribbon:  Flirty Flamingo Rouched Ribbon
Other:  Wink of Stella (clear), pink pearls (non SU)

________

Another favorite hobby of mine is dragging my husband to see lighthouses, and we usually do that during the summer.  That's where I got the inspiration for this next card.



The card base is Marina Mist; the middle layer is Whisper White, and the card front is watercolor paper.  To make the water I squeezed the Marina Mist stamp pad until the ink pooled in the cover. Using a blender pen, I put the ink onto the bottom half of the paper.  I did the same with the top using Daffodil Delight.  Then I spritzed the card front with water to blend the colors.  Before it was completely dry, I sponged a bit of Calypso Coral in the sky and a very light touch of Emerald Envy in the water.

Using the From Land to Sea set, I stamped the lighthouse in Real Red. I die cut it using a coordinating die made by Dies by Dave (contact  me for info).  The sailboat is stamped with the Swirly Bird set -- gray for the boat and Pacific Point and Real Red for the sailes.  I fussy cut that out.  The boat and lighthouse are popped up for some dimension.

I used the sentiment "Thank you for being there when I needed you the most" from the Sitting Here set.  I thought that sentiment was perfect for boat and lighthouse scene! I stamped it in Pacific Point.

Cardstock:  Marina Mist, Whisper White,  Watercolor Paper
Stamp Set: From Land to Sea, Swirly Bird, Sitting Here
Ink:  Marina Mist, Emerald Envy, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Real Red, Basic Gray,  Pacific Point

________

This last card was a last minute one.  I've been meaning to try this since I first saw it on Pinterest about a year ago.  What a perfect reason to make it!  My family is always looking for watermelon as soon as summer arrives!


The card base is Cucumber Crush.  The card base is Whisper White.  The watermelon was made with the Work of Art set.  The rid is Cucumber Crush, and the watermelon is Watermelon Wonder (of course!).  To make the seeds, I punched out a couple hearts in Basic Black using the tiny  heart punch from the Tiny Accent set (retired).  The "Sweet" is from the new Thoughtful Banners set, and the ribbon is Cucumber Crush lace (retired).

Cardstock:  Cucumber Crush, Whisper White, Basic  Black
Stamp Set:  Work of Art, Thoughtful Banners
Ink:  Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder
Punch: Tiny Heart (retired)
Ribbon:  Cucumber Crush Lace (retired)

So, that's what summer is to  me -- drinks, lighthouses and watermelon!  What about you???
