Fast & Fabulous on Friday - Another Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper Card....

Here is another quick & easy (no stamping!) card using the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper.  This time, I took my sponge brayer and inked the leaf pattern piece of the DSP with Min Macaron ink.  I finished it with the largest Stitched Oval cut from Very Vanilla card stock and the Happy Birthday die cut from the new Rose Glimmer Paper.  I love the changes to the glimmer paper - it is so much easier to cut with the dies!  Again, I used the liquid glue/water combination on my Silicone Craft mat to apply adhesive to the back of the Designer Series Paper.

Just A Few Friends Stopping By to Say Hello!

 Today's card uses the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series paper.  Can you see where?  Yup, the little border on top of the ribbon and on the inside of the card.  I love that there is just enough of the border to use some both on the front and on the inside of the card.  Do you think they planned it that way?  Hmm....

I am so in love with the Animal Outing stamp set.  These guys are just so much fun!
On the inside of the card, I used the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper which I cut with my ScanNCut to get the giraffe and hippo.  Check out my video to see how to make this card.

Fast & Fabulous on Friday - Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper....

Welcome back to another edition of Fast & Fabulous on Friday!  While I have been sharing projects using the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper on my Tippin' on Tuesday videos, I wanted to share some quick and easy cards made using this paper as well.  How's this one for quick & easy?  No stamping at all - just a few die cuts!

If you have not been watching my videos on this paper where I show how to adhere your DSP to your cardstock, here's a brief description: 

What You Will Need:  Silicone Craft Mat, Tombow Liquid Glue, Water Mister Bottle & Sponge

Grab your Liquid Glue and squeeze a small amount onto the mat in the top left corner.  Spritz lightly on the glue and mix together using your sponge.  Place the DSP piece face down on the Silicone Craft Mat.  Sponge the back side of the DSP until you have it covered and then adhere to your cardstock.  Easy peasy!

Creating with the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper - Card 1 in a Series of 9

I recently held a class where we used the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper and I had so much fun making cards with this paper that all of a sudden I realized I already had 9 projects!  Since I didn't want my attendees to be here until midnight, I had to cut it down to 5 projects that they would create and then show them 4 other projects that they could make with the paper. 

This first card is made by using a portion of the 12"x12" floral piece and using it as a mask while spritzing it with an alcohol & reinker mixture.  Check out the video to see the whole process as well as how to attach the paper to the inside of the card below.

A Few Friends Celebrating A Birthday....


Who wouldn't love having a bunch of fun animals come wish them a happy birthday?  Certainly, I would love it!  This card was inspired by a card made by Joy Smelt, a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in South Australia.  I just love these animals - they are so adorable!  I colored the animals using markers and use the Darling Label stamp set and punch for the sentiment.  Since I did not want a bunch of the frogs (on the branch) showing up, I punched my holes for the rhino and giraffe inserts and then stamped the branches, strategically placing the frog either off the cardstock or in the center of the hole.  I did keep the one little frog in the bottom left corner. 

Colors used on this card are Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Suede and Whisper White. 

I used the Detailed with Love stamp set for the sentiment and cut the animals from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper using my ScanNCut.

Love What You Do....


 Did you take advantage of one of the Love What You Do bundles that were offered back in May?  Even if you didn't you can still get all of the products.  I used the Love What You Do, Swirly Frames and Treat Time stamp sets to make this card as well as the Share What You Love designer series paper. 

The flowers are stamped using Memento Ink for the outline and Berry Burst for the inside.  I stamped off once so it wasn't so intense but achieved some deeper color where the stamps overlapped.  The leaves were stamped in Old Olive.

The Lazy Days of Summer.... Or Not!

 Are you enjoying the lazy days of summer?  What does that really mean because I can tell you that mine is definitely not the lazy days!  The last two weeks of May, I was in Montana and came home for three days before leaving for a two week trip to Alaska.  Home for a couple weeks and then to Bodega Bay for a couple weeks.  Heading home tomorrow and in two weeks, I will be heading back to Montana to assist in packing our daughter and her boyfriend up to move to the Sacramento area.  All that to explain why you will see intermittent gaps in my blog posts.

For today, here is a card that we made recently at class.  We used markers in Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Garden Green and Mossy Meadow on the bonsai with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede on the trunk.  The pot is colored using Poppy Parade.  We used the direct to stamp technique.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  The other thing that I wanted to showcase is the new Subtle embossing folder.  In the catalog, it is very difficult to see the pattern so I wanted to use it so you can see how pretty it really is.  I sponged the embossing so that it shows even better.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Kindness & Compassion stamp set and the Botanical Tags Thinlits.
