Lighthouse Sketch

Lighthouse Sketch

Hello Friends, 

This lovely Lighthouse Sketch was done with only stamps, paper and ink.  Let's  get back to the basics 0f stamping.   Mr. Brown delivered my High Tide Stamp set yesterday.  What a great stamp set!  I'm so glad that it is carrying over to the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog.

High Tide Stampin' Up!

Stamping with the High Tide stamp set had me singing  My Lighthouse by Rend Collection, but that's ok.  This year's Wacky Wild Water Week's theme is Captain Salty's Lighthouse Adventure.  And since I will have 3 of my grandson's that week, I need keep up my Nana's Coolness factor and know the My Lighthouse song.

The 16 piece High Tide  photopolymer stamp set has plenty of stamps for making a sketch.  And the the photopolymer stamps are completely see through for easy placement.

For the look of a sketch, I used 3 inks-Basic Black, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

The Designer Paper peeking through is the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper Stack.

Simple? Handmade Card

Handmade Card

Hello Friends,

Sometimes less is more when it comes to making handmade cards.  Take today's "Moose You" card,  it's quite simple to make.  It's striking and fun too.  So why, oh why did I spend an additional 30 minutes trying to add more?  Just a bit of Baker's twine or Linen Thread should finish my card nicely, right?  Wrong!  Bad idea!  What about  adding some Glimmer Enamel dots or a touch of ribbon?  No, no, no!  This really should be a 5 to 10 minute card making process.

Pick a Pattern

The Pick a Pattern Designer Paper (available starting June 1, 2017) is so quirky and fun!  I really would have bought the pack of paper for the 2 sheets of  fun critters and campers, but like the name implies, there are so many patterns choices.  I chose to fussy cut the moose and the simple house.  Have you ever tried to fussy cut with hiccups?  I really thought that I would loose an antler.  

Just 7 more sleeps until the 2017-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog goes live.  What's on your wish list?

Moose You Card

I wanted to make my own message, so I used the Labeler Alphabet stamp set to stamp "moose you".  Our son and his family live in Wyoming, so we don't get to see them as often as we would like.  And it's not uncommon for a moose to wander into their backyard.  Besides, the quirky moose is cute!

Birthday Adventures

Handmade 3 Year Old Birthday

Hello Friends,

One really cool thing about handmade cards is that you can personalize them.  For my grandson's 3rd Birthday Card, I personalized his card with both his name and his age.  Now that's pretty cool!

The 3 birthday Balloons were stamped with the Balloon Adventure stamp set and punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch.  The number 3 was cut with the Large Numbers Dies.  And I stamped his name with the Labeler Alphabet Stamp set.

Colten Joseph

The Balloon Adventures seemed like a perfect choice for a little fellow who is always up for an adventure.  Happy Birthday Colten!

Balloon Pop Up Birthday Card

Inside there's one more surprise for our adventurous little fellow.  It's a Pop-Up Card made with the Balloon Pop-Up Dies and the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

 

 Brandy from Stampin' Up! goes into great detail about how to use the Balloon Pop-Up Dies.  

The Balloon Pop-Up Dies are half price until May 31, 2017 or While Supplies Last.  Then they are gone, gone, gone.
