Stampin’ Up! You’re Inspiring on a Coppery Basket Weave

Merry Monday, y’all!  Well…it IS Monday – you decide if it’s Merry or not!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch and see how I made today’s card, here’s a link to the YouTube replay!

I was celebrating the arrival of my little yellow daffodils – they took last year “off”! – and made this card with the gorgeous flower image from the You’re Inspiring stamp set.  And, after seeing a card on Pinterest (thanks for sending it, Elisha!), I wanted to try the technique.  Take a look-see: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! True Gentleman Basket Weave

Mornin’!  Hope your weekend has started off well – and that you’re planning something fun!

My card for today is a pretty large departure from my usual style.  In that it’s not got a ton of layers, and embellishments.  No froof.

I was sort of thinking…masculine card – after I saw the color scheme at this week’s Color Throwdown.  So I pulled out some True Gentleman DSP and the Truly Tailored Bundle and put it all on top of a Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF embossed card front.  Take a look-see:

The layout – which is quite clean and simple – is courtesy of the FabFriday sketch challenge this week. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Springtime Petals Wreath

Well, hidey-ho, my peeps!!  Friday arrived quickly, thanks to the miracle of a Monday holiday!  Gotta love it!

I found out yesterday evening that a friend of mine had been in the hospital the past couple of days – with a flu-like illness (but not “the flu”!).  Fortunately, she (and her baby! 🙂 ) are fine and have been sent home.  But, since I’m not there to administer a hug in person, I thought I’d send her one in paper-and-ink!

So, I pulled together some of my favorite Springtime Foils Specialty DSP, a few leaves from Petals & More, and a couple of sweet sentiments from the Hanging Garden and Lots of Love stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

The inspiration for this card came from the photo in the Fusion challenge this week. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Day for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! It’s color week and we’ve got the full complement of hoppers…. so be sure to check out all their projects when you’re done here, won’t you?  

I inked up a new-to-me stamp set called Beautiful Day from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  I’d seen a lovely card out in the ether that had a large flower embossed on Vellum and colored and I remembered how much I liked the technique.  So, I decided to use the flower in the Beautiful Day stamp set to create my own paper stained glass window.  Take a look-see:

I played along with our color sketch, of course… Continue reading
