Truly Tailored You're a Fox

You know that the Truly Tailored stamp set pairs perfectly with the stamp set Foxy Friends.  Of course you would also need the Fox Builder Punch.  They all go together like bread, peanut butter, and jelly.  Here's my card for today.

Truly Tailored & Foxy Friends  Luv 2 Create

I've seen cards on Pinterest with this sentiment and the punch art fox.  This is my take on the idea.

The card base is Cajun Craze 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Night of Navy layer is cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  The next layer is Very Vanilla.  It measures 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Run the vanilla layer through the Big Shot with the Hexagon 3D Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  Adhere all of these layers.

Add a piece of the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper across the lower part of the card.  It measures 1 1/2 x 3 5/8.

The sentiment is part of the Truly Tailored stamp set.  Stamp it first in navy on Very Vanilla card stock.  Punch it out with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Stamp again on scrap vanilla with the Cajun Craze ink.  Cut out the fox and adhere on top of the navy fox with a dimensional.

You'll need to punch the parts of the fox with the Fox Builder Punch.  Punch from Cajun Craze for the head, body, and tail.  You'll also need the tip of the tail and part of the face from Very Vanilla.  Put all the pieces together.  Stamp the face and legs with Memento Black.  Use dimensionals to attach the fox.

The inside of the card has Happy Birthday from the Perennial Birthday.  It's stamped in Cajun Craze.  Add a strip of the True Gentleman paper 3/4 x 3 5/8.

It's a Picture Perfect Birthday!

Hi!  So glad you are here today to see my Picture Perfect Birthday card.  This stamp set is in the Occasions catalog.  It is so much fun to use.  Here's my card for today.

Picture Perfect Birthday  Luv 2 Create

With the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set you can recreate those noise makers that you used in your youth.  Of course they are still around so you might have used them recently.

This card has a base of Dapper Denim measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The Old Olive layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.

The Whisper White layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Stamp candles randomly on this layer.  Use Dapper Denim and Old Olive.  Top each with a Daffodil Delight flame.

A Calypso Coral ribbon goes across the card.  This ribbon is part of the ribbon offered as one of the Sale-a-Bration choices.  It has the Calypso Coral along with Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay.  It's very pretty and is called the Shimmer Ribbon Pack.

Use the Layering Circles Framelits to cut a Whisper White circle and a Calypso Coral scalloped circle just a bit bigger.  The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set in Dapper Denim.  The coral piece is on dimensionals.

The blowers or noise makers are stamped in three parts.  Start with the straight part.  It's the same piece used for the candles.  Add the fringe part and then the part that is rolled up.  Use Dapper Denim, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive but change the order around.  Fussy cut these.

Picture Perfect Birthday inside

Here's the inside of the card.  The stamps are all from Picture Perfect Birthday.

Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper Goes Birthday

The Myths & Magic 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper is beautiful.  But, sad to say, I'm not much of a glimmer paper kind of girl.  I was challenged to use this paper and I accepted the challenge.

Happy birthday Thinlits and Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper Luv 2 Create
I used the Happy Birthday Thinlits to cut the words.  Do you notice something that looks a little strange?  Yes, it's that last Y.  I told you I'm not much of a glimmer person.  I'll be honest and just tell you that I borrowed this paper from a friend.  Then I cut the birthday and realized that I had just cut off a little of the Y.  I just couldn't waste more of that paper, so I gave the final Y a little hair cut.  As card makers we learn to fix our mistakes whenever possible.

Start will a card base of Bermuda Bay measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded.  The large dots on the background are stamped with the moon/sun stamp from Waterfront.  Stamp these in Bermuda Bay.

The Whisper White cardstock is cut to 3 x 4 1/2.  The patterned paper is from the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper.  It's a FREE Sale-a-Bration choice with a purchase of $50 before shipping and tax.  It measures 2 7/8 x 4 3/8.

Happy Birthday Thinlits with Myths & Magic Glimmer paper inside

The inside of the card has a sentiment from Picture Perfect Birthday stamped in Bermuda Bay.  The balloon strings are stamped using the Bird Banter stamp set.  Just ink up the strings.  A small part of the balloon shape also stamped, but I was able to cover it up with the balloons.  The Balloon Bouquet Punch was used to punch three balloons from the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop Goes with Color!

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  This month we are learning all about ways to color!  Stampin' Up! has so many options!  My name is Jo Anne Hewins and I am from the USA.  I'm so glad you are here.

Here is my card for the hop.

Coloring on Layered Leaves Luv 2 Create

This card might appear very difficult.  It really isn't although it might take a little time.

Let me very quickly give you give you the stats on paper sizes.  The card base is Garden Green in standard card size.  The next layer is Pear Pizzazz cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  The Garden Green layer measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  The final layer is Watercolor Paper that is 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.

Use the Layered Leaves 3D DynamicTextured Impressions Embossing Folder.  You can spritz your Watercolor Paper with water first if you wish.  To be honest I did not do that.  If you do, allow to dry.

Using the Aqua Painter, paint the leaves on this layer.  Just press the top of the ink pad to get ink in the lid.  I used Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz.  If you really look, you will see that my work is not perfect.  I think this adds to the look.  Maybe that's just what I'm telling myself!  Adhere this layer with Fast Fuse.  This background made me think of the jungle.  That's how the rest of the card came about!

The branch is cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies in Early Espresso.

The birds are stamped on Whisper White in Memento Black ink.  I used the light and dark Daffodil Delight, light and dark Smoky Slate,and the light and dark Calypso Coral.  If you haven't used the new Stampin' Up! Blends, you should.  Fussy cut the birds.  Adhere with dimensionals.

The card needed something else so I added some more leaves.  Use the Painted Harvest stamp set and the Leaf Punch.  Stamp in Garden Green on that same color.  I did pinch each leaf to make it have a little texture.  Glue some of the leaves and use dimensionals on some.

The sentiment is from the Soft Sayings Card Kit stamp set.  Stamp in Early Espresso on Whisper White.  Cut the words apart and add to the card using dimensionals.  I did add a few single leaves to some of the words.

Coloring on Layered Leaves inside of card

The inside of the card also has a saying from Soft Saying Card Kit stamp set.  I added a few more leaves here and there.  Stamp the bird and color with Blends.

Coloring on Layering Leaves  and Bird Banter

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #497 Falling Flowers

Welcome to all!  It's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we are using Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist, and Garden Green.

I often start a color challenge by looking at the designer series paper choices available with the colors needed.  That's the direction I headed this time.

CCMC#497 Falling Flowers Luv 2 Create

I like my card.  It is brighter than my usual.  That's why I love these color challenges.  They make me stretch!

The base of this card is Thick Whisper White.  Cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4, and fold.  It's important to score this thicker card stock.  The fold is cleaner that way.

The Garden Green paper witht he hearts is from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 4 x 5 1/4.

The other papers are from the Tutti Frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  I absolutely love this paper!  If you are not wild about fruits, just look at the backs of the paper!  Love it!  The Real Red paper measures 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.  The Lemon Lime Twist paper is cut to 3 x 4 1/4.  The red paper is slanted a little.  The others are straight.

I used the Stamperatus to stamp the sentiment.  It's from the Watercolor Words stamp set.  Stamp in Archival Black.  I'm so glad I did use the Stamperatus.  I would have ruined my paper.  I did have to stamp more than one time.

CCMC #497 close up

The flower parts are stamped on Watercolor Paper in Archival Black.  Use the color in the lid of the stamp pad and the Aqua Painter.  Use  Real Red, Garden Green, and Lemon Lime Twist ink pads.  To get the darker color I did have to let it dry and add more layers.  Cut using the May Flowers Framelits.  Use snail and dimensionals to adhere.

CCMC#497 Falling Flowers inside

The sentiment inside is also from Watercolor Words.  Add a sprig from Falling Flowers.

CCMC#497 Falling Flowers card

I have fallen in love with this card.  I love Falling Flowers and the simplicity of the designer series paper chosen.  Go back and pull out your Falling Flowers stamp set and the May Flowers Framelits.
