Sunday Sketches SS032 - Retiring Wetlands Stamp Set

Sunday Sketches Card Sketch Series

Each Sunday I post a card sketch along with a card I created using the sketch.  Sketches often help get my creativity fired up.

Sketches are open to interpretation.  You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout, using a square where there is a square, or you can change it to a be a circle, or oval or flower etc. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal.

Border Buddy Saturday - With Stamipn' Up! High Tide Stamp Set

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddy Saturday, Patsy here.

I am excited to share with you another card featured in our Monthly Border Buddy PDF Card Tutorial.  Since there are 5 Saturdays in April you get a bonus peek.

High Tide stamp set by Stampin' Up! Border Buddy PDF Card Tutorial www.stampstodiefor.com

This card is made using the High Tide stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  So excited it is going to carry over into the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.   We only have one light house in MN but it is a very popular one, the Split Rock Lighthouse on Lake Superior.  We love to visit that area of the state.  It is an international harbor with large ships coming and going.  It is like an entirely different world from central Minnesota.  We have lots of lakes but tiny compared to Superior.

Hard to see in a photo but I placed some Wink of Stella on the beam of light and it is so sparkly.  This is another great set to use for masculine cards.

Just in CASE Series - You won't want to miss the Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted Stamp Set

Its Thursday's Just in CASE Series.

My Border Buddy Alison and I both CASE a card and share it each Thursday.  One of the fun parts for us is we don't know until you do which card each other has cased.

CASE = COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING

CASEing is when you pick out a card and either copy it exactly or change up the stamp set or colors or maybe even both, but if you go too far you are then creating your very own card and just are inspired by the card or project you started to CASE.

The More you CASE the more you learn to be creative so there is nothing wrong with CASEing!

Penned & Painted Stamp Set is retiring!

This is by far one of my favorite flower sets and will remain on my stamping shelf even after it retires.  I love two step stamping and technically this is three steps.  The multiple steps make such amazing dimension on stamped images.

You only have a few more weeks to order this retiring stamp set so don't wait too long. 

The colors used in today's card are...

Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Pear Pizzaaz.  The patterned paper is part of the retiring Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper so it may already be gone.  All retiring products are ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST except stamp sets are guaranteed till May 21

Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget if you would like to receive a Free PDF Card Tutorial of the Just in CASE card each week subscribe to my Newsletter.

Birthday Blast & Star Blast Edgelits Dies Last Chance

Handstamped Birthday Card using Birthday Blast Stamp Set & Starblast Edglits Dies by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

I love celebrating my Stampin' Up! Team's accomplishments. 

Each month I send a card to the Top 10 in Sales a hand stamped card congratulating them.  The Birthday Blast stamp set and Star Blast Edgelits Dies is the perfect set to create a card to help them celebrate.   The Top Ten in March received this card in their mail-box.  Everyone still loves to receive a hand stamped card in the mail. 

Birthday Blast stamp set and Star Blast Edgelits Dies by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Here is how to make this hand stamped card.

  • The card base is a piece of 4 1/4" x 11" Whisper White card-stock fold in half.
  • I stamped the image in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the center top of the card-front.
  • The stars are embossed using a piece of 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" Rich Razzleberry cardstock using the Big Shot and the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. 
  • I cut out the stars from a piece of Shimmery White paper using the Big Shot and the Star Blast Edgelits Dies and adhered it behind the top of the Rich Razzleberry card-stock and adhered it to the bottom of the card-front.
  • With the Star Blast Edgelits Dies I cut out a star from Silver Glimmer paper. 
  • Stamp WAHOO in Rich Razzleberry ink on Whisper White and cut it out using the tag from the edgelits dies.

Time is running out for items in the Occasions Catalog.  You won't want to miss this fun set for celebrating Birthdays, special achievements and anything you want to say Wahoo about.
