Daisy Thanks

Hello stampers,
     So today's card is one that I did at Linda Bauwin's stamp day when she came here last month. I really like this card, the set & Luscious Lime is becoming a favorite color of mine.
     We started off with a Whisper White Card Stock base, followed by a layer of Basic Black Card Stock, an even smaller layer of Whisper White Card Stock & a layer of Fresh Florals DSPLuscious Lime 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon was added around the smaller layers before adding 2 punched flower parts using the Daisy Punch & then adding a Luscious Lime Card Stock dot punched out with the 1/2" Circle Punch. I'm not sure which set the sentiment came from but it was stamped using Memento Black Ink & then fussy cut out to make it look like a banner.

Jar of Love Birthday

Hello stampers,
     Oh my, it's been awhile since I posted & I have all of these cards just waiting to be shown, just not the time to finish a post. UGH!
     So I made this card at one of Kerri's classes a while back. Not sure how I missed posting this but I did. The card starts off with a Peakaboo Peach Card Stock base, followed by a layer of Basic Black Card Stock. On Whisper White Card Stock, we stamped the jar from the Jar of Love Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink along with the sentiment (which I'm not exactly sure which set it comes from). Next, we took a piece of retired Mint Macaron Card Stock punched it with the retired Scallop Edge Punch & then fussy cut a "v" into each scallop to make the grass. Lastly, the retired Spring Bouquet Punch was used to make flowers beforehand for us in Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum & So Saffron Card Stock, which we then added a Basic Pearl to each flower.

BSU062817

Hello stampers,
     So today's BSU challenge is all about our favorite set. I have several to choose from that are new to the catalog, but I chose to go with Colorful Seasons Stamp Set.
     This first card was done at Linda's stamping event a few weeks ago & while I had the set at home this was the first time I had used it. I like it because it reminds me of the Cherry Blossoms in Okinawa & that you can use it for all 4 seasons, so very versatile. We started with a Berry Burst Card Stock base which was just 1/4" sheet of card stock, layered it with Whisper White Card Stock that was cut down by 1/4" to make the actual card part. We stamped the flowers from the set on top of the card part in Berry Burst Ink. We then used a piece of the Color Theory DSP to line the bottom of the card. Next, we took a layer of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock & Soft Sky Card Stock which was stamped with a sentiment from the set in Rich Razzleberry Ink. We then used Seasonal Layers Thinlets to cut out the branch using Early Espresso Card Stock, the flower using Rich Razzleberry Card Stock & 2 flowers that were stamped using Berry Burst Ink then cut out using the Big Shot.
   
      The second card was done at Kerri's class last week. We started with a Cameo Coral Card Stock base, followed by a Pink Pirouette Card Stock layer. Next, we started with the circle, sponging Pink Pirouette Ink & Cameo Coral Ink into a die cut circle remnant. Then we stamped the chair using Early Espresso Ink & Cameo Coral Ink, followed by the flowers & branch with Soft Suede Ink & Cameo Coral Ink. Lastly, the sentiment was added fron the set using Early Espresso Ink.
     Don't forget to head on over to Carol's blog HERE and then to Stace's blog HERE. To see what both did for this week's challenge. I'm sure both will be fantastic. Hope you try this challenge out too! We have a new Facebook group if you want to join us and show us what you came up with HERE.

Tranquil Tulips

Hello stampers,
     So this past Saturday I got to go to Linda Bauwin's stamp event for a day of stamping. I had a lot of fun & got some wonderful ideas for some of the new sets in the catalog.
     Today's card uses the new hostess set Tranquil Tulips. We started with a Very Vanilla Card Stock base, layered it with Tranquil Tide Card Stock that had been run through the Big Shot using the Ruffled DTIEF. Next, we stamped the tulips from this set onto Very Vanilla Card Stock using Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Ink, for the leaves & stamens we used Tranquil Tide Ink. For the sentiment, we used the Wood Words Stamp Set stamping it with Tranquil Tide Ink onto Tangerine Tango Card Stock then cut it out using the Big Shot & the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

BSU060717

Hello stampers,
     Long time no see everyone! Life has been a whirlwind around here. Don't you ever wish that you can have a Calgon moment with stamps & let all your worries & problems just wash away? Yeah me too! I've got all these new things from the catalog & I haven't even touched them yet, how sad right?
     Today's card is for this week's BSU challenge which was all about Father's Day or Masculine cards. This card was done in Kerri's class but I thought I would use it here since it fit the bill & since I'm so behind on challenges & have touched anything I figured it would work before I missed another challenge which I really do hope to make some cards up for past challenges.
     Basic Black Card Stock was used as the base of the card. Next, retired Brush Silver Card Stock was run through the Big Shot using the Hexagon TIEF then layered on top of Basic Gray Card Stock. A 1" piece of Basic Gray Card Stock was then punched on one end by the Triple Banner Punch & added to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment stamp is from the now retired Urban District Stamp Set, stamped using Basic Gray Ink & fussy cut into a hexagon, it was then layered on top of Basic Black Card Stock which was also fussy cut around that to have a layer.

     Don't forget to head on over to Carol's blog HERE and then to Stace's blog HERE. To see what both did for this week's challenge. I'm sure both will be fantastic. Hope you try this challenge out too! We have a new Facebook group if you want to join us and show us what you came up with HERE.
