You Brighten My Day again

We did the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Blog Hop on Saturday.  While I had this set out, I made another card using the cute little light bulb and the sunburst from Kinda Eclectic.

You Brighten My Day

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Whisper White, folded in half.
  • Next is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Crushed Curry cardstock.
  • On top is a 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Back to Black Designer Paper.
  • The 2 x 3-1/2 layer of Smoky Slate was punched with the Heart Border Punch across the top, then a 1/2 x 2 strip of Crushed Curry put behind the hearts to show thru the openings.  It was placed diagonally on the front of the card.
  • The sunburst was stamped partially on the 2-1/4 x 2-1/4 Whisper White panel with Crushed Curry ink and adhered over the Smoky Slate layer.
  • The light bulb from You Brighten My Day was stamped on scrap Whisper White, colored with Crushed Curry Marker and punched with the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch, then layered on a 1-3/8″ Circle of Basic Black.  It was placed on the front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • You Brighten My Day was stamped with Tuxedo Black above the sunburst.

So fun and whimsical, isn’t it?

I need to send a card to someone who needs a little sunshine in their life!  Of course, I pulled out my trusty Beautiful Bunch stamp set and favorite background set, Kinda Eclectic.  With as many Christmas and Fall cards that I’ve made lately, it felt good to use a flower set again!

Beautiful Bunch 3

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Old Olive, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White, I stamped the polka dot background stamp in Stampin’ Up!’s Kinda Eclectic with Calypso Coral ink.  Over that I stamped the sunburst with Hello Honey Ink.  The greeting was stamped with Old Olive ink.
  • I used my Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Markers to color the Beautiful Bunch flower, then punched with the Fun Flower punch.  I colored the center with the Old Olive Blendabilities and punched with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, then used a Dimensional to pop it up in the center of the flower.
  • I tied a double bow with the Old Olive Bakers Twine and added it with a Mini Glue dot to my flower.

Very simple, but love the coloring with Blendabilities on the CAS background!  Don’t forget…today’s the last day of my 40% Adhesive Sale!  Don’t miss out!

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Lost Lagoon, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White, I stamped the dotted image twice…once full strength and once stamped off towards the left side.
  • Then I added the sun image in Hello Honey Ink above it and the greeting below it.
  • The butterflies were stamped with Twisted Tangelo on scrap Whisper White, and punched with the Bitty & Elegant Butterfly Punches.  I added rhinestones for the bodies.

So…I ended up using 3 of the new In Colors on this one card!  I love how it turned out!

CCMC307 Beautiful Bunch

Oh, I was SO excited to see another flower stamp set and punch combination called Beautiful Bunch and Fun Flower Punch!  I know…we have several…but this has a LARGE flower and it is so pretty that I couldn’t resist!  And, Create with Connie and Mary’s sketch this week was perfect for a large flower!  Here’s my card.  I combined Beautiful Bunch with Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set!

This week’s sketch…come play along!

Details of my card:

  1. I stamped the dotted pattern from Kinda Eclectic with Lost Lagoon Ink across the middle of the Whisper White.
  2. Then I added Mossy Meadow leaves (making them lighter by stamping off) on top and bottom of the dotted image.
  3. I wrapped the Strawberry Slush twine around twice and adhered in the back.
  4. The greeting was stamped with Strawberry Slush Ink in the lower right corner.
  5. I stamped the flower from Beautiful Bunch twice with Strawberry Slush on Pink Pirouette and punched with the Fun Flower Punch.  I layered them together with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Next I stamped the flower again with Strawberry Slush on Daffodil Delight and punched with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle.  Did you know it fits PERFECTLY???  I added it to the center with another Stampin’ Dimensional.  And there is a little Rhinestone to add a little sparkle.
  7. I didn’t want to add another punch, but the Lost Lagoon butterfly just jumped on there…I added Rhinestones for the body and adhered it with a Mini Glue Dot.
  8. The Whisper White layer was added to the  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 base  of Strawberry Slush, folded in half.

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  We’d love for you to join us by playing along!
