Custom fold over a 6 x 3 inch piece of Under the Mistletoe designer series paper to bring attention the greeting. Then travel down the card to enjoy the print. Last, provide a little pattern relief with a strip of real red and old olive card stock.

This is a design that a stack could easily be created in a short time. The patterned paper does the work of making this card fast and fabulous.

I have been wanting to ink up this stamp set for months and did I ever ink it up! I used all of these ink pads in order of the inking line.

These are the colors I used…

Linen thread and burlap ribbon were discarded as embellishment. They took away from the serene scene.

Ink and Share Blog Hop Sunny Days

28059369_10155813494401140_2143749391452299936_n

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring summer themed projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Cindy’s blog and her fabulous project. My hop design is below.

I created this greeting card on the Summer Solstice while it was raining outside. Sunny days are surely ahead, at least in someone’s mailbox anyway!

I used the largest Stitched Shapes oval framelit to cap the top of the focal point to mimic the banner shape in the stamp. I used about a third along the longest side of the framelit to create the cap.

Stampin’ n write markers were used to color the images. Whisper white thick cardstock was run through the Big Shot using the ruffled embossing folder to create a little interest. Mats in flirty flamingo and daffodil delight cardstock complete a pink lemonade look.

All the supplies used…The birds were singing by the time I finished writing this post so maybe the rain will give away to a sunny day!

Happy Birthday Aunt Dollie!

My Mom’s sister celebrated 80 years of good living with a surprise party at her favorite neice’s house. Aunt Dollie likes to color images for focal points on her greeting cards. Since I have stacks of stamp sets, I decided to stamp 80 images that she can color to her hearts content.

There are 2 of each image stamped with Memento ink pad, a mix of retired and current images. If she does not like the color combination she picked for the first image, she can change up the colors for the second image.

IMG_8423

I used a card exchange card and color coordinated with a Paper Pumpkin box to gift the images in. A simple and complete package that was quick to assemble.

Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project for You Are My Anchor

I’ll be a hop stop tomorrow for an alternate Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop featuring the April kit, You Are My Anchor. Today, I am sharing a project I designed in a few minutes with the help of this kit. The gift note makes a perfect gift bag tie on with enough space inside to write a personal message.

The gusseted cello bag is a roomy 6×17 inch bag that can contain a nice array of goodies. I designed this bag with the intent that this could be a bon voyage bag for a trip across the state, country or day outing too. The glare from the cello makes this photo out of focus but wanted to share the ruler scale for perspective.
