I taught a Creative Class at Stamp-n-Storage on Saturday, October 20. We had a great time stamping and creating five fall themed cards. I thought I would pop on today and share those projects with you.
We had a lot of fun putting these cards together. Especially that last one! I was able to teach a fun new water color technique. I will be back on Wednesday with a quick tutorial for this.
Here is everyone with their finished projects! They all did a great job.
The next Stamp-n-Storage Creative Class is Saturday, November 17 at 1:00PM. You can find more details and register for the class over on the Stamp-n-Storage website HERE. I’d love to have you join us!
That’s a wrap for today. Join me again to put a spotlight on creativity!
The weather here has been nutso this week.. We dropped into the 40’s, back into the 50’s, jumped up to the 80’s for a day, then plummeted back to the low 50’s. Plus rain every other day. Please, bring back the sun and some warmth! I am not ready for winter. At all. I think I need to move farther south.
In spite of the weather, I have been busy creating some fun Christmas cards. And I just got some new goodies that I can’t wait to play with this weekend! I’m excited to share those projects with you soon. Today I have a card that puts the wonderful Wishing You Well set center stage.
I love the combination of Crumb Cake, White and a touch of copper! I embossed the wreath in white and added little “berries” with the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint. I used the stylus end of the Take Your Pick Tool, dipped it in the Copper Shimmer Paint and dotted it on the wreath. a great way to add some detail with the shimmer paint. A Copper Trim bow is a great finishing touch for the wreath. The sentiment is embossed in copper on a little tag cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits. This would be an easy card to mass produce.
While I am not ready for winter and the cold and gray skies that come with it, I do love Christmas and creating fun cards to send to friends and family. But, hey! I can do that year round!! Hmmm – maybe I do just need to move where it is warmer….
That’s a wrap for today. Please, join me again to put a spotlight on creativity!
Time for the Stamp Review Crew to put another great stamp set in the spotlight! Today’s blog hop is featuring the amazing Buffalo Check background stamp. Buffalo Plaid is very trendy and yet timeless. It can be found all over fashion and home decor. With this stamp, your card making can be on top of one of the hottest trends too! It is great for any occasion and can be the star of the show, or a great supporting role.
Let’s start with featuring Buffalo Check in a supporting role.
Stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White card stock, Buffalo Check makes a great base for this bouquet from the Wishing You Well set. The layers and ribbon look black in the photo, but it is actually Night of Navy. The flowers and heart are Lovely Lipstick. I love the little corrugated tag!
The next card puts Buffalo Check in the leading role.
Stamped in black ink on Real Red card stock, you get the iconic buffalo plaid. I used the tiny cup from the Coffee Cups framelits and layered it on a white Stitched Shapes circle. I hand wrote the sentiment to get just what I wanted and to fit the space. The ’tis the season repeated on the right is from Itty Bitty Greetings. Final touches are a few pine sprigs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits and tree from the Festive Farmhouse Elements. I used the backside of the tree and colored it with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker.
One last card. I know I have shared it before, but it showcases this stamp so well.
I think this is one of my favorite Christmas cards I have made this year. I love Buffalo Check paired with the log patten from the Wood Textures designer series paper stack. (I don’t know why the tiny bit got blurred out in the photo. must have blended with my backdrop too much.)
If you are #madforbuffaloplaid like me, this stamp is a must have. Check out the rest of the stops on the blog hop for more amazing Buffalo Check inspiration! You can go back to the wonderfully talented Nikki or move on to the uber creative Stesha. Enjoy the rest of the hop and join me again to put a spotlight on creativity.
Welcome to My Inky Friends 2018 Holiday catalog Showcase blog hop! We are shining the spotlight on some of the great new stamp sets in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. If you are following the hop in order, you have come here from Cindy and her wonderful Winter Woods display. Now, join me as I put the fantastic Wishing You Well set center stage.
I love a versatile set and this one really is great for any season. So, let’s take a look at some of it’s many talents.
I love this wreath with the Wood Textures designer series paper! Lemon lime twist and Berry Burst create a vibrant contrast to the wood. A wonderful card just to let someone know you are thinking of them. But, change out the greeting and this would work for a Christmas card as well. See, versatile!
Since this is the HOLIDAY Catalog showcase, I naturally had to make a Christmas card. I went with traditional green and red, but chose to work with bright and bold Lemon Lime Twist (I seriously can not get enough of this color!) and Poppy Parade.
I love how the bit of striped Poppy Parade paper peeking out from the main panel echoes the striped Poppy Parade ribbon! The three little pearls were colored with my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends marker. Voila – perfect coordination! This would be an easy card to mass produce. Simple, but with some fun little details to make it interesting.
That’s a wrap for me. I will now send you over to Twila who is showcasing one of my favorite sets – Dashing Deer. Thanks for stopping by! Come back again and join me in putting a spotlight on creativity!
