June D's Stamping Team USA Blog Hop - New Products

Welcome to D's Stamping Team USA Blog Hop for the month of June our theme is new products from the Stampin' Up! new annual catalog!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love this Fresh Fruit new stamp set!  I knew it was one of my must haves at OnStage Live back in April when I first saw it.  I was in need of a fun summer birthday card, so I used a card from the Stampin' Success demonstrator magazine as inspiration for this card.

The base is thick Whisper White and has a 1" x 6 1/2" layer of Fruit Stand DSP that is accented by the Triple Banner Punch.  The mat (3 15/16"x 6 1/2") is Pear Pizzaz to coordinate with the inks.  The regular Whisper White piece used for the stamping is 3 11/16" x 2 1/2".  Let's just say I started with a 4" x 3" piece of cardstock but cut it down to end up with this size. :)  

As far as the inks here are the details:

- Pear Pizzaz - strawberry & peach stems and the pear
- Soft Suede - pear stem
- Watermelon Wonder - strawberry
- Peekaboo Peach - peach
- Memento Black - Happy Birthday sentiment

The masking for the stamping was done by stamping a pear on a post-it note, cutting it out, and then laying it on the card while stamping the strawberry & peach.  The matted piece was popped from the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I hope you have enjoyed my card!  Thanks for stopping by and check out the next blog in our hop, Nichole!

OSAT Blog Hop - Summer Lovin

Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop for June with a theme of Summer Lovin!  I hope you enjoyed the great projects from the fabulous, Jeanna!

When I think of summer I think of gardens, vegetables & fruit, and fun times with family & friends!  A friend of mine needs a little cheering up so that inspired me for my card and project.

The card & project use the fabulous new Stampin' Up! products - Jars of Love & Everyday Jars Framelits!

The card has a base of Dapper Denim.  The jar was stamped in Smoky Slate and then embossed with clear embossing powder from the Jars of Love stamp set.  The stars are from Balloon Celebration and were stamped in Versamark then embossed in white embossing powder.  Dapper Denim, Night of Navy, and Tempting Turquoise were all sponged on a layer of Whisper White cardstock.  A tissue was used to wipe excess ink off the embossing.  The fireflies are also from the jars set!  They were stamped in black Stazon on Whisper White, colored with the Daffodil Delight marker, and a little Wink of Stella in clear was added to make them shine.  The fireflies were all popped with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The inside sentiment is in Daffodil Delight & Memento Black.

I wanted to come up with a project that coordinated with the card.  I cut out 4 jars from Basic Black cardstock with the framelits and glued them all together.  The jar outline & friend sentiment were stamped in Versamark & embossed with white.  After cutting out this fifth jar it was glued on top of the other four.  A magnet was glued to the back in order to create the jar magnet!

I hope you have enjoyed my card & project!  Your next stop in the hop is from my friend, Tina!

ICS Blog Hop Guys Night Out

Welcome! It's ICS blog hop time! Our theme is ‪Guys Night Out!  I thought this theme would be a great time to break out the Marquee Messages new Stampin' Up! set I received at OnStage Live in Salt Lake City in April.

The card base is the new Stampin' Up! in color called Dapper Denim and then there's a layer of Tempting Turquoise.  The Whisper White layer was first stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Emerald Envy, Tempting Turquoise, and Bermuda Bay.  This layer was then ran through the Big Shot using the Brick Wall embossing folder.  Tip - the front side was facing the side with the logos on the embossing folder.  The all new Marquee Messages frame was then stamped in Memento Black ink on 3 cardstocks - Emerald Envy, Tempting Turquoise, and Bermuda Bay in order to piece the image together.  I stamped the "It's Your" sentiment on the Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  The "Birthday" sentiment was stamped on the Bermuda Bay cardstock.  The Tempting Turquoise layer was used as the base.  I then added snail to the Bermuda Bay Birthday layer that was cut out with snips.  The image was finished with the arrow on Emerald Envy popped with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Thanks for stopping by my post in the ICS blog hop!  The next stop in your hop is the fantastic, Deb!
