It’s a beautiful day

Hello fellow stampers and card makers.  Today I have a card to share with you that I made at a recent Stampn’ Up! cardmaking class.  I love the beautiful designer paper and how nice the sentiment coordinates.

Because I didn’t write down what products were used, I can’t tell you what they are.  So sorry.

Enjoy your weekend.

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Baby Bear

*SCS Weekly Favorite

Hi folks.  Are you in love with this Baby Bear stamp set as much as I am?  I paired it with Technique Junkies Love Harlequin background stamp that you can get for 10% off just by using my code TJ10Beth.  I like this card so much that I plan to make ten more of them.  The girls at work are always after me for cards.

I made this card for my granddaughter’s first birthday.  She isn’t walking quite yet, and threw away her smash cupcake. She was not impressed with it at all.  Here are some photos of my children with Charlotte.

 

Proud mama, Sarah, with Charlotte.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend.

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Happy Birthday

Hello folks!  I had so much fun making 11 of these cards, using Tree Rings and Painted Harvest.

I used my Misti to stamp out my Tree Rings twice to give it a nice dark appearance.  Next, I stamped my sunflower, first in Distress Ink “Mustard Seed” followed by “Spiced Marmalade.” My SU pads are pretty dry because I’ve had them for years, so I put in an order for many ink refills.  I am so anxious to get them in my hot little hands.

My leaves were stamped out in Green Galore then over top with Hunter Green.  The centre of the sunflower was stamped out with brown Memento.

My background and sentiment was stamped out in brown Memento.  My Happy Birthday is from Technique Junkies.  You can order Happy Birthday 3, or any other product that is not a new release for 10% off by using my code TJ10Beth.

Be Unique

I’m playing in some challenges this week and one of them uses Brushos/Color Bursts.  My background turned out muddy and looks like Northern Lights.  I couldn’t figure out what to do with the Northern Lights as the surface is bumpy from adding embossing powder so I added some Stampn’ Up! leaves coloured with Copic markers.

My sentiment, Cherish what makes you UNIQUE comes from Technique Junkies Things I want to do set.  You can receive 10% off this sentiment set, or any other product at 10% off simply by using my code TJ10Beth.

Here is the video I was directed to.  It’s called Color Explosion.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Hey, Chick

Happy Stampn’ Up! Saturday.  Brrr, baby it’s cold outside.  This is a good weekend to create cards for your stash for the New Year.  I just love Stampn’ Up’s Hey, Chick stamp set.  If you look closely you will see that I created a door by using Technique Junkie’s Wood stamp, which you can purchase at 10% off, along with any other item that isn’t a new release.  All you have to do is use my code TJ10Beth and your discount will be applied to any product your purchase.

To create my door, I placed my stamp in my Misti and stamped out the Wood until it was nice and crisp.  I used black ink on my stamp and stamped onto Kraft paper.  If you look closely, you will see brads on each of the four corners to represent nails.  And looking closely, once again, you will notice a criss cross shape in the centre of the door.

Stay warm and happy stamping!

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – High Tide

Hello and welcome to another Stampn’ Up! post.  I fell in love with the nighttime scene using High Tide.  I am going to use these as sympathy cards.  You can see the You Tube video I followed here.

Tonight is the nighttime Christmas parade here in Sarnia, Ontario.  Looking forward to it.  First it’s supper at a restaurant with eight friends and then standing in the cold by the water for a couple of hours.  Do you go to Christmas parades?

Stamp: High Tide

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Sweet Sugar Plum, Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Cajan Craze, Night of Navy, Soft Suade and Black

Have a great day!

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Painted Harvest

Hi folks!  Sorry I am a day late.  Yesterday was a jammed packed day with grocery shopping, putting up the Christmas tree, three hour nap and then date night with Al.  We saw Murder on the Orient Express and went out for a nice steak.  Considering I just finished my card yesterday, you can see why I had no time to post.

So long to fall; we had our first snow.  I quite enjoyed it.

Now onto my card.  I used Painted Harvest on Triple the Fun card that I filmed a tutorial for Technique Junkies way back in 2013.  You can find the tutorial here.

The inks I used were a variety of Distress Inks, and Adirondak inks as my SU pads are drying up because they are so old.  I decided as I need new ones I’ll order the new pad along with the reinker as the new pads are newly designed and so juicy.  My greens are Old Olive and Hunter Green from SU.

The green paper I used is retired Hunter Green.

Have a nice weekend.

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Birthday Hedgehogs

Hi folks!  No doubt, if you’re a Stampn’ Up! fan, you’ve seen these critters around. My dad used to have a hedgehog and my son wants one so bad.  So, for my son’s birthday he will just have to settle on paper hedgehogs instead of the real thing.  All products are Stampn’ Up! including this delightful designer paper.

I followed a tutorial by Tina ZinkFrenchie has also done a wonderful video as well.

My hedgehogs and foilage came from the set Painted Harvest, and the grass came from the set High Tide.  I didn’t have any faces as shown in the videos so I drew mine on with a marker.

These are fun to make and I hope I’ve inspired you to try making your own set of hedgehogs.

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Lovely as a Tree

Whoop, whoop, it’s the weekend and I’m off work this weekend.  I was on 3-11 last week and had lots of energy to make loads of cards before I went to work.  I even had time to join in on a challenge this week.  The challenge was to make a reflection which I did by stamping on acetate and pressing it upside down under my stamped trees.

I thought this would make a great masculine card for my friend who is undergoing knee surgery in November.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy your weekend.

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Kind and Caring Thoughts

Hello friends and fellow stampers.  Welcome to Stampn’ Up! Saturday where I try to post every Saturday a card using one of my Stampn’ Up! sets.  To see a close up on my card see below.

Heidi, of My Little Stamping Blog has inspired me to pull out some designer paper.  She has an eye for what papers should be used.  Since I am a paper piggy I decided to pull out some Stampn’ Up! DP (Falling in Love) and paired it with my Kind and Caring Thoughts stamp set.

To create colour on my image, I coloured the flowers with a Tombow marker and lightly spritzed water on my stamp.  The same thing was done with my sentiment, using a light and dark pink, but there is no dramatic difference.

Sadly, I had two sympathy cards I had to send out in a matter of a month.  I ran out of handmade sympathy cards and (GASP), had to buy a Hallmark card.

Thanks for stopping by!
