CARD: Itty Bitty Birthdays

Good Morning!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  

Today's card was made for the Case This Sketch Challenge.  I set out to use some of the retiring designer paper -- I have quite the stash!   This is from the Best Route pack:

Cts318tammy

Simple was the word of the day!!  Colors came from the dsp itself:  Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch and Gray Granite.  The sentiment was stamped then cut out using the Big Shot and the retiring Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I cut the banner out twice -- once in Whisper White, and then again in Gray Granite for the "outline" piece!  The ribbon is tied around the middle piece--mini glue dots were used to hold the bow in place!

Here's the sketch used:

Enjoy!!  Have a great week!

 


CARD: Geared Up Garage

I really love this masculine set -- one of the best that Stampin' Up! has come out with!  This card was Case'd from Cindy at Heart's Delight Cards:

My stamp ladies were so funny -- the instructions were to "stamp, cut, emboss" (meaning:  stamp the sentiment, cut out the large gear die and adhere it, then emboss it with the subtle embossing folder).   You could hear them all afternoon, whispering "stamp, cut, emboss" to themselves! haha!!  If they said it in the wrong order, someone would correct them!  

Have I mentioned how much fun this last stamp club was?!  The ladies are awesome!

Here are the supplies used:


CARD: Graceful Glass Vellum

And, here's another stamp club card from this month!  I CASE'd this card from Tammy Beard! Mary requested ideas using vellum, so I pulled out the Graceful Glass Vellum, but got stuck!  So I went to Pinterest and searched for ideas!  This card came up, and I thought it was perfect!  Thanks, Tammy, for the inspiration!!

I used the Wood Textures Designer Paper for both the chair and the "sand".  We sponged Early Espresso ink over the "sand" to add some grainy-ness to it.  (not sure that's really a word, but you understand!)  I love it!  The vellum was colored in on the back side with Stampin' blends.

Here are all the supplies used on this card:


CARD: Petal Promenade

Here's a super simple card using the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper!  You could easily switch this up using any designer paper!!  And, any sentiment!!  I used one from the Beautiful You Stamp Set.
