Penned & Painted

Penned & Painted

Hello Friends,

I woke up this morning with the Penned & Painted stamp set calling to me.  Have you ever had that happen to you?  The stamp set won't get out of your head until you create something beautiful. That was Penned & Painted this morning.   Plus, the Penned & Painted stamp set is Retiring.  Which means that it will only be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or until May 31, 2017.

Penned & Painted Stampin' Up!

About Today's Card

 I wanted a soft outline, so stamped all 3 layers including the outline with the same color on each flower.  It's a stamping technique called 3-step stamping.  Each stamped layer builds on the other.

Today's color combo is Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango and Old Olive.  These colors together are a bit of a stretch for me, but I think that they turned out lovely.  It was the Color Challenge this week on Splitcoast Stampers.

After stamping all the flowers and leaves I decided to add just a little more happiness, so I sprinkled in Tangerine Tango dots.

The "sloppy bows" are 5 layers of Whisper White Baker's Twine.


Here for You

Some friends of ours have spent the last several days at the hospital for a unexpected medical emergency.  What do you say at a time like that?  The Here for You stamp set covers so many hard situations.  Here's what my card says inside.

There's so much to love about today's birthday card.  It's clean, it's fresh and it's whimsical.   And it's a Sneak Peek of the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  

The rolling script of the Happy Birthday thinlit is a perfect match for the 32 piece Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set.  The playful, bright flowers look like they are doing a little dance.  The party balloon blowing in the breeze is also a stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set and it coordinates with the ever popular Balloon Bouquet Punch.

Super Simple Happy Birthday Card to Make

Super Simple Card to Make

Today's Card was inspired by the inside of this card, which I will show you next.  But first, let's talk about the card front.  It's a super simple card to make.  The Card Base (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") is Powder Pink cover with 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack.  This paper is going to be popular.  It is really quite beautiful and it includes the 5 lovely 2017-2019 In Colors.  The flowing Happy Birthday die cut is the Happy Birthday Thinlits die from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle.

And here's the whimsical inside that inspired today's Birthday Card.  Notice how well 3 of our 2017-2019 In Colors play together.  Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink make great playmates.

Colorful Seasons Card Tips

I could almost feel the water washing over my feet as I splashed a little Tranquil Tide Ink across my Watercolor paper.  Tranquil Tide is a beautiful new In Color that's a cross between green and blue.  To add the appropriate amount of sparkle and shine, I then washed my Wink of Stella Brush across my Tranquil Tide.

To make a cool refreshing glass of Lemonade with a coral straw, I inked my stamp with my So Saffron and Calypso Coral Markers.



Relax and enjoy your weekend,
