Let's Celebrate Amazing You!

Hi and welcome to my weekend edition blog post.  Happy Family Day weekend to my Canadian friends!  I hope you are enjoying your three day weekend!

What better way to spend some time than to get inky!  The cards I created have something in common.  They all use the same stamp set - Amazing You, which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  I love the versatility of this set!

I used Note Cards for each of the card bases.

For the layer, I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 2 3/8" x 4 7/8".  Next, I inked up the stamp in Old Olive, and randomly stamped the image.  I adhered the layer with Multi-Purpost Liquid Glue.  The sentiment was stampin in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White cut to 3" x 7/8", then punched using my Banner Triple Punch and popped up with Dimensionals.  The last step was to stamp 'You' in Old Olive on a 1 1/4" x 1/2" Whisper White scrap.  I also used the Banner Triple Punch.

On this card I stamped onto the card base using Calypso Coral.  What I love about this colour is how soft and fresh it is and how well it goes with Old Olive.  The sentiment layer is 3" x 1 1/2" with one end punched using the Banner Triple Punch.  Naturally, I used Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment.

Last but not least, is my Rich Razzleberry & Basic Gray card.  The layer is 3 3/8" x 4 7/8", and stamped with both images from Amazing You.   I added a  1" x 4 7/8" piece of  Whisper White to break up the layer from the sentiment.  So, lastly to the sentiment.  I cut the piece 1 7/8" x 2 1/2" and added Rich Razzleberry ink to the edge.  

I'm curious!  What do you think of the simplicity of these cards? My thought behind these cards was to show you how easy it is to create simple and pretty cards, even with limited supplies.  Check out the list of products at the end of this post.

Hippy Love - Brusho Style & Blog Hop!

Welcome to our monthly blog hop!  For those who follow our team blog hop, you'll notice our team name has changed, and we're very excited to now be known as Stamping Symphony.  We're all loving our new team name!!

Let's get to the card I've been waiting to share with you!!  So, lately, I've been playing with Brushos again, and am head over heels in love with the tie-dyed hippy style background for my card!  

If you haven't tried Brushos, you need to because it's super easy to use, and you get awesome effects!
For this card, I started with a Note Card base, then I cut watercolour paper 3 3/8"x 4 7/8", then spritzed the paper with water.  With an idea of how I wanted my background, I sprinkled the colours onto different areas of the watercolour paper.  Brusho comes in 5 colours:  Brilliant Red, Bamboge (orange), Moss Green (which I didn't use for this card), Prussian Blue, and Yellow. 

I spritzed a bit more water, lightly to complete the look.  What I find to be such a big WOW, is how the crystals and water react on the watercolour paper.  Truly amazing!!  Dare I say I feel artsy!

I let my paper air dry, but if I had been in a rush, I would have used my heat tool. 
Did you stamping on this card.  None.  The hearts & 'love' are Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers - new in the Occasions catalogue. Simply peel & adhere!!

Party Pandas Hello Baby

What a weekend!  Although we had a bit of freezing rain courtesy of Mother Nature, and our 'It's All About You' event was postponed due to this inclement weather, we're happy to announce will be rescheduling soon!  I'll keep you posted. đŸ˜„

My card today features three Sale-A-Bration products. Wasn't the plan, but everything just came together and what you see is the result.

I started with a Whisper White Note Card base, then cut & adhered two pieces of Bubbles & Fizz DSP to the base.   Next, I stamped the panda, from the Party Pandas set, in Black Memento ink onto Whisper White paper.  Then, die cut the image using an ovals in the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I added a layer of Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper that I die cut with a Layering Ovals Die.

To adhere the Shimmer ribbon I ran my snail adhesive in two lines, then zig-zag'd the ribbon.
Next I popped up the panda with dimensionals.  For the sentiment, I brought out my Teeny Tiny Wishes set and stamped the sentiment 'hello baby' in Black Memento ink.

The finishing touch was to die cut hearts from Support Ribbon Framelits dies - two using the Bubbles & Fizz DSP and one using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Cute, eh?

Did you figure out which items are from Sale-A-Bration? 

Here they are: Party Pandas, Bubbles & Fizz DSP, Shimmer Ribbon.

I've been a very busy girl lately! On Feb 11 I'm co-hosting a multi-vendor event.  You can read about it (and RSVP) on the Upcoming Classes & Events tab on my blog.

This little panda card will be on display at the event. It is even cuter in person!

I started with a Whisper White Note Card base, then added a layer of paper from .
Sweet Soiree DSP  Next I stamped the panda (from Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration) in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Using my Calypso Coral Blends marker I filled in the heart - cute, eh!  I then die cut the image with one of the circle dies from Stitched Shapes Framelits, and placed it on a Silver Foil layer that was die cut with a Layering Circle Die.  To add the ribbon, I made a line of 'glue' from my Snail Adhesive, then simply zig-zagged the ribbon.

The final touch was die cutting the word Love using my Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and popping the word up on mini dimensionals that I cut in half.  Can you say tiny!!
