Fore You – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

I think we all know someone who is hooked on golf.  I use to play myself and my Mom would say to me “have you played any cow pasture pool lately?”  Use to crack me up hearing how ridiculous she thought the game was.

Most golfers are serious when it comes to the game though.  Not my darling husband and I, we played Army golf, right, left, right, left.  That is, we never hit the ball down the middle of the fairway, we would hit it right then left, right then left, lol.  Not from lack of trying to get it down the middle, we just pretty much stink at golf.  Don’t get me started on hazards such as sand pits and bodies of water.  Just know I never came home with the same about of golf balls I would start with.  I lost plenty of them.

This little guy from the Stampin’ Up! On To Adventure stamp set almost makes me want to take up the game again.  Actually I love all of the little people in this set, they have attitude.  :). They also make darling cards.

On to Adventure, 149334

Royal Peacock Thank You – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

Check it out, anytime I wish to make a big statement with a greeting card I turn to a 4″ x 9″ card which fits in a #10 size business envelope.  You can pick up those envelopes super cheap at any big box store.  You don’t need any extra postage for this size card as long as you don’t put bulky stuff like bows or brads and such on the card.

This size card offers room for a large sized panel to create your masterpiece on.  I went with a bit of a collage feel today using the new Royal Peacock bundle as one of my focal points.  My other focal point is, of course, the big “Thank You” die using the Thank You Thinlit Die.

Adding a few fun and interesting items in the background can really take your card to the next level and give it that collage feel.

Inspiring Iris – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

Do you love stamp sets which have 2 step stamp images in them?   If you don’t know what 2 step stamps are the stamp set, Inspiring Iris which I used today is a perfect example.

Inspiring Iris, 149268

The stamp set has both an outline stamp of an image and then solid stamps to over stamp the outline image to add the color.

I love this type of stamp set, not only because it is quick, but because you have options.  For instance, in my project today I wanted to keep the images looking loose and not so defined so, I just stamped the solid images and didn’t stamp the outline image.  This gives you a more painterly look don’t you think?

Free as a Bird Wreath – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

I’m often asked how I come up with my card ideas, well I start with an idea and then think about the stamp sets I have to pull the idea together.  What I will put in the back ground, middle ground and fore ground.

I combined a couple of stamp sets to create today’s project.  I knew I wanted to create a wreath (middle ground) so I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! First Frost stamp set which has a great twig stamp perfect to pull off the wreath look with.  Added some images from the new Free as a Bird stamp set for decoration (fore ground) and the Crackle Paint background stamp for the panel the wreath is on.

Breaking my scenes down to Background, middle ground and fore ground helps my mind from getting overwhelmed.  I pick out the stamped images for those areas one at a time.

True North – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

Have you had a chance to check out all of the new stamp sets in the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalog, if not, you can find the link at the bottom of this post.  In my first order out of the new catalog, I made sure to pick up the Come Sail Away Suite of products, page 145.

The stamp set that all the products in the suite coordinate around is this beautiful, Sailing Home Stamp Set.  I love fine line stamped images which are more realistic than the norm.  This goes a long way in helping your stamp scenes look like hand painted masterpieces which will WOW that person who is lucky enough to get one of your creations.
