Pretty Delightfully Detailed Note Cards

Today I want to show you how you can make some quick and pretty notecards using the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards and the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Boy, that's a mouthful!

Aren't these beautiful?  The Note Cards have the watercolor wash already printed on them. You'll get 20
3 1/2 x 5 cards and envelopes.  There are 4 different watercolor looks; 2 in Mint Macaron and 2 in Blackberry Bliss.  How easy is that!  I added a layer from the Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and the cards were almost done!

Delightfully Detailed All2.jpg

We made this one at the OnStage Convention where we were able to play with new products.  That's one of the perks of being a demonstrator.  The strip of Grapefruit Grove Cardstock was covered with the beautiful Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The small piece of Very Vanilla was stamped and then punched with the Detailed Trio Punch and then some Faceted Dots were added.

Delightfully Detailed Happy Birthday2 - small.jpg

The Blackberry Bliss background on this card is so beautiful.  I cut a strip of 3/4" x 5" of Mint Macaron and then stamped the Sentiment from the Hand Delivered Stamp Set.  This is a free set with an order of $150 and I love the fonts on the sentiments.  The small scalloped layer is one of the Laser-Cut borders and I sponged it with Grapefruit Grove.  I added some Artisan Pearls to finish it off.

Delightfully Detailed Happy Birthday - small.jpg

This is one of my favorite layers, its so delicate.  All I did was add a 1" x 5" strip of Tranquil Tide and then cut a piece of Mint Macaron using the Stitched Label Framelits.  I stamped the Sentiment using that same Hand Delivered set.  A piece of Mint Macaron Nature's Twine was wrapped around the strip of Tranquil Tide and then a bow added with a glue dot.

Delightfully Detailed Congratulations - small.jpg

This last card is what I made on the video.  I cut the largest Stitched Oval and then stamped it with Blackberry Bliss Ink.  The stamps are from the Love What you Do Stamp Set.  I stamped the flower on scrap paper twice before stamping on the oval so it would be a lighter shade.  A few Blackberry Bliss Faceted Dots were added to give it a little shine.  Here's the video:

Lovely Cards Featuring Accented Blooms!

Today I made some beautiful cards featuring the Accented Blooms Stamp Set. The Stamp Set coordinates with the Tailored Tag Punch so you can stamp the sentiment, punch it out and fit it into the space within the flowers.

Accented Blooms Both.jpg

I stamped the flowers using Black StazOn Ink and then colored with Watercolor Pencils and blended with Blender Pens.  The purple flowers were colored by picking up some ink off the Highland Heather Ink Pad with my Blender Pen.    

Accented Blooms Thank You.jpg

The Thank You and Hello Fonts are so pretty. I Stamped it on a piece of scrap cardstock, punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch and then adhered with Dimensionals.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

Thank You Both.jpg

Today I'll show you how to make a very simple Thank You card using the Thank You Thinlits and some Designer Series Paper (DSP). 

The colors are Granny Apple Green and Basic Black.  I'm loving this Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.  If you're watching this in July, 2018, don't forget that there's a special going on where if you purchase 3 packages of DSP, you get 1 free.  You don't want to miss out on this! 

Thank You Card.jpg

Aren't those Faceted Dots so pretty?  They just add a nice sparkle to the card.  The Thank You was cut out twice; once in Granny Apple Green and once in Basic Black.  I adhered the Green onto the Black, slightly offsetting it to get the shadow effect. 

Here's a look at the inside of one of the cards.  I used the sentiment from the A Big Thank You Stamp Set which comes in a bundle with the Thinlits. I also added a 1/2" strip of the DSP to the side of the inside layer.

Thank You Inside.jpg

I made the second card using a different sentiment from the same set but stamped it in Memento Black Ink.  

Thank You Card Inside2.jpg

You can watch the video to follow along with the steps to make this card.

Here's one more card using different colors and DSP.  The base is Lovely Lipstick and the DSP layer is the In Color Designer Series Paper.  I stamped some flowers with the Pop Of Petals Stamp Set and punch with the coordinating Punch.  The colors are the In Colors and I really love how bright and cheerful this card is.

Sweet Friendship Card with Time for Tea!

Wouldn't you love to send this card to a special friend?  I used the Time For Tea Bundle and it has some great sentiments and beautiful floral images along with a pretty teacup.

Time for Tea.jpg

The cardstock and ink are a new color called Merry Merlot and it's really beautiful.  I stamped the teacup on a piece of scrap and then onto the cardstock to get a lighter shade.  The layers with the doily style edges were made with one of the framelits that comes in the bundle.  A piece of the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon adds such a nice finish to the card.  

If you check out pages 14 & 15 in the catalog, you will see the other items in this Suite.  There are Copper Tea Tins, Copper Vinyl Stickers, Ribbon and beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I ordered the DSP with this great promotion for the month of July, 2018 where you purchase 3 DSPs and get one FREE!

Here are the Dimensions:

  • Merry Merlot Card Base - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4

Gorgeous Roses With Healing Hugs!

Today, I made some beautiful cards using the Healing Hugs Stamp Set. The flower and leaf images are photorealistic stamps.

Healing Hugs Both1.jpg

The Gorgeous Grape and Lemon Lime Twist color combination is so pretty.  I stamped the darker rose first and then without re-inking stamped the top one and then again without re-inking stamped the bottom one.  Three different shades of the same color!  

One is a get well card using the sentiment from the stamp set. 

Healing Hugs1.jpg

The second card is a birthday card.  The sentiments are from the Varied Vases Stamp Set.  I love the font on the sentiments.  The ribbon is the Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon and then there's a Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dot to finish it off.

Healing Hugs2.jpg

Here's some additional cards using the Healing Hugs Stamp Set.  They both have Pear Pizzaz card bases and one is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the other in Highland Heather. I used the Detailed Trio Punch on the corners and then added a Pearl Basic Jewel to each. Which do you like better?

Sweet Dandelion Wishes Card!

Today's card was made with the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set. It's really so simple but so pretty. It reminds me of being a child and blowing on a dandelion and making a wish.  

Dandelion Wishes.jpg

The card base is in Mint Macaron and a layer of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) was stamped on and then backed with a piece of Basic Black.  

I stamped the images and sentiment in Memento Ink and then embossed it with Clear Emboss Powder. This gives it a little shine. The final touch was to add a few Black Faceted Dots.

Thinking Of You Card Using the Gorgeous Nature's Poem Suite

How is it that I missed Blackberry Bliss. It's a returning color that everyone was so excited about and I never even used it before. It is so rich and gorgeous.  

httpswww.pspapercrafts.comblog2018619fun-animal-outing-cards Single.jpg

The Designer Series Paper is called Nature's Poem and it is a favorite of mine in the new catalog.  I stamped the tree ring in Blackberry Bliss on scrap paper twice before stamping on the cardstock to get a light shade. Then I stamped the sentiment straight on.  

It was easy to fussy cut the image out. The final touches were to add some Silver Metallic Thread and a Leaf Trinket.  Gorgeous!!!!

Rooted In Nature - Thinking of You - closeup.jpg

For the inside, I stamped the leaf images in Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze to match the DSP. So simple but so beautiful.

Fun Animal Outing Cards!

I think Animal Outing is one of my favorite new stamp sets and Nature's Poem is my new favorite Designer Series Paper (DSP).  

Animal Outing Nature's Poem DSP Both.jpg

I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) this card design from Amy Koenders.  The DSP that I used is different and I changed up a couple of other things.

Isn't this rhino so sweet, I just love him. This Mint Macaron card base along with a layer of Tip Top Taupe go so nicely with this DSP. The sentiment is from the Bella & Friends stamp set. 

Animal Outing Nature's Poem DSP Rhino.jpg

And Oh the Giraffe, how I love the Giraffe!!!  The Wild About You sentiment is great for someone special.  I can see using this set for baby cards, kids cards and cards for someone special in your life.

Thanks For Lifting Me UP - CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge

CAS(E) this Sketch #276 - I'm participating in another Sketch Challenge.  It's fun to do a challenge.  You should give it a try.

First, the sketch...

Screen Shot 2018-06-17 at 4.13.50 PM.png

I used the Lift Me Up stamp set and the new 2018-2020 In Colors.  This was such an easy card to make, just ink and paper!

Octopus Adventure with Sea of Textures

Using the Sea of Textures Bundle you can make some great ocean scenes. There's the octopus, netting, great sea plants, schools of fish and sand dollars.  What more do you need?  Maybe a mermaid from the Magical Mermaid stamp set!

Sea of Textures Both.jpg

The octopus and sea plants are stamped using Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped off (stamped on scrap paper and then on the cardstock) to get different shades of the same color.

Sea of Textures.jpg

The background netting was stamped in Crumb Cake and it's light because I also stamped off onto a piece of scrap before stamping on the cardstock. The larger net was cut out in Crumb Cake cardstock using the Under the Sea Thinlits.  Watch the video to see the trick to adhering it.  

I didn't put a sentiment on the inside of this one but stamped the same sea plant images. 

Sea of Textures Inside.jpg

Cute Cards with Animal Outing

One of the new stamp sets that I truly love is the Animal Outing set.  It has such cute animal images. Don't you just love the Rhino and the Kangaroo? I really like the shading that is in the image.

Animal Outing Both.jpg

I used the new Shaded Spruce color for the cardstock and layered on a piece of Garden Impressions DSP. The stamping was done using Blackberry Bliss Ink which is a color that retired and they brought it back. What a beautiful, rich color.  

Mr. Rhino has a cute little bird on his horn. This one is a thank you card. The Nature's Twine comes in some great colors, one of them is Blackberry Bliss. The Faceted Dots also has some of the dots in Blackberry Bliss. It's so great how everything coordinates.

Animal Outing Rhino.jpg

Ms. Kangaroo is so cute with her Koala Bear in her pouch. Instead of the twine, I used the Burlap ribbon and also changed up the sentiment.

Fun Birthday Card with Varied Vases

You're going to love this bundle called Varied Vases.  It's a great stamp set and comes with a matching punch.  It was designed by Mary Fish, one of the recent Million Dollar Sales Achievers.

Varied Vases Both.jpg

The vases were punched using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  Some of them were embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  It gives them great texture.  The flowers are in the new 2018-2020 In Colors which are just beautiful.

Varied Vases.jpg

 I had a little trouble lining up the green shelf with the black outline so I tried my new Stamparatus and it worked out great.  It is a new stamp positioner and it really was easy to use.  I'll be bringing you some videos on different ways to use it.  You can purchase it starting June 1, when the new catalog goes live!!!!  

Here's a look at the inside of the card.

Lovely Embossed Vellum Hello Card

This beautiful card features the new Lovely Floral Embossing Folder along with some Share What You Love DSP and the stamps from the Varied Vases Set. 

Embossed Vellum Hello Card .jpg

I love the look of vellum on a card and wanted to emboss it but didn't want to hide the glue behind embellishments. Using a Multi-Purpose Adhesive Sheet to adhere the vellum to the Grapefruit Grove cardstock worked beautifully.

The flower images and the sentiments are from the Varied Vases Stamp Set.

First the sketch:

Screen Shot 2018-05-22 at 9.19.23 PM.png

I like the simplicity of this sketch and thought about flowers or butterflies and then decided to use the Ribbon of Courage set.   

Case this sketch #272.jpg

First I stamped one of the images from Touches of Texture around the bottom of the card for a background.  Next I stamped the heart and flower images randomly.  The ribbon was stamped and colored using Stampin' Blends.  

These are the products I used.

Quick & Easy Masculine Card

This Truly Tailored Stamp Set and True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper is just great for a guy card. You can use it for Father's Day or a Birthday.

Masculine Card - Father's Day  Birthday Both.jpg

It's so simple to pull together a card when using great Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment and then punched it out with the Tailored Tag punch. The ribbon is Night of Navy Corduroy and it really finishes off the card nicely. The sentiment on the inside can be used for any occasion.  

You better hurry though the DSP and Stamp Set are on the retiring list and may sell out quickly. The punch will carry over to the new catalog. It's really a great punch!!!

Beautiful Mother's Day Card!

Happy Mother's Day Happy Birthday.jpg

Isn't this Share What You Love Designer Series Paper just beautiful. It's so easy to make a gorgeous card with. I made a Mother's Day card and a birthday card with the same design and products, just changed out the sentiment.

Happy Mother's Day - Share What You Love.jpg

The card base is Rich Razzleberry which coordinates so well with the DSP. I stamped some flowers from the Love What You Do set by stamping off on scrap paper first, so it would be light and not take away from the sentiment.  The Artisan Pearls are so pretty and that along with the velvet ribbon really finish off the card nicely.

Hello Friend - Tutti Frutti DSP

I'm participating in another CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. Its fun to try to come up with a card based on a sketch. 

Here's the Sketch that I used to make my card.  

Screen Shot 2018-05-05 at 8.19.22 PM.png

When I saw this sketch, I was thinking about the Fruit Basket and Tutti Frutti DSP.  I played around and came up with this card.  Its a bright and cheerful card.

AS(E) this Sketch #270.jpg

The strips are from the Tutti Frutti DSP; I just cut a row of fruit out and then went from there.  The Real Red strips are just a little larger.  The Triple Banner Punch was used for the banner ends.  The sentiment is from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set.
