Sunday Sketches SS039 - Weather Together Stamp Set
By Stampin' Up!

Weather Together and Wood Words Stamp Sets by Stampin Up www.stampstodiefor.com

There are many storms in life and it is always better to Weather Together when they arrive.  My Mother was a wonderful person who often reminded us that in the big scheme of life "everything is going to be okay".   When she was diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer just 2 weeks after our father passed my brother, my sister and I were all sitting around her hospital bed.  It was a devastating blow so suddenly after our father's passing from an unexpected heart attack. 

As we began to weep my Mother reminded us that everything was going to be alright, my sister (10 years my junior) looked up at her through her tears and said "Yes I know Mom but in my little world right now it really sucks!" we all laughed.  My Mom fought a tough battle for 5 years.  That storm was weathered together not only by my family but so many amazing stamping friends from across the country!  Near and far stampers said prayers, sent cards and I felt lots of arms around me from across the miles.

While many umbrella's keep out the rain as I created this card I thought about how I would love for my umbrella to symbolize the love and support of my stamping friends.  Each flower represents the many friends who have supported me through the storms of life.  You can see my umbrella is overflowing and running off the card.  I am blessed!

This Little Piggy Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

This card makes me happy!  I love the look of the woodgrain paper for the background.  It is from the Wood Textures Paper Stack.  The daisy paper is from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper.  I will need several packages of this paper for creating awesome cards this summer.

I am not sure how I lived without the Stitched Shape Framelits, I use them almost all the time if you hadn't noticed.  I stamped the pig on the Shimmery White Paper with Basic Black Archival Ink.  I then Squeezed my new Powder Pink Classic Ink Pad to get ink into the lid - opened it and grabbed the ink with my blender pen and started to color the pig.  I repeated the process with Old Olive Classic Ink for the grass and flower stem, the flower I used Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight.

Let your imagination run wild!

Welcome to Sunday Sketches SSO36 by Stamps to Die For. Each Sunday I post a card sketch along with a card I created using the sketch.  Sketches often help get my creativity fired up.

Sunday Sketches SS036 -tile

I find gray scale card sketches easier to create from, sometimes when I see an original card it is hard for me to want to use different colors and stamps.  With the card sketch I don't have a predetermined idea of how the card should look.  Does that make sense?

This card has a little bit of a fun fold.  I cut the Whisper White Thick cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and then scored it at 2 3/4" & 5 1/2".   Then I folded it in half to create the card base and then I folded the card front back at the 2 3/4"  score mark to create the fun fold.

The Wishing You... greeting is from the Big on Birthday stamp set which is in the Occasions Catalog and is getting carried over into the New 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog that is coming out June 1.   I stamped the greeting in Basic Black, the bow in Bermuda Bay Ink.  Matted the stamped piece of cardstock with Bermuda Bay cardstock.   I finished off the bow with a new item coming out in June Faceted Gems - they will be in clear and gold.  It is difficult to capture the true sparkle these provide.

This card was created using some new products featured in the New 2017-2018 Catalog that will soon be available.  You are going to see this set all over pinterest and will want to get your hands on it.    The good news is you don't have to wait until June 1 when the catalog goes live.  You can get the items in the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle now. Don't buy it just because it is new - buy it because it will add so much to your stamping enjoyment. 

The card base is one of the new 2017-2019 In-Colors called Tranquil Tide.  The strip of patterned paper and the Very Vanilla and Gold Foil paper are from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper package.

You might recognize the Natural Trim Ribbon it is carried over into the new catalog.  The Gold Tassel is from the Eastern Palace Suite and will be available individually June 1.  The tassels are very fun and come in three colors; Gold - Fresh Fig - Tranquil Tide.  

Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up!

The flower medallion is cut out using the Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot.  I always think what an amazing value dies are.  You get 14 different dies in this set and that figures out to only $2.35 per die. 

I have come down with the spring crud that many are talking about!  I thought I had been spared but it has hit hard.  What did I expect after kissing up my little grandchildren who have all had it.  Hoping to feel better real soon so I can stamp up a storm of new samples using some amazing new products.  HUGS and hope the crud misses you!

Sunday Sketches SS031 - Really Fun Different Fold Card

Welcome to Sunday Sketches SSO31 by Stamps to Die For. 

Sunday Sketches SS030 Card Sketch using Stampin Up Products www.stampstodiefor.com

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

Sunday Sketches SS030 Card Sketch using Stampin Up Products www.stampstodiefor.com  2
I created this card for last week's Color Your World International Blog Hop and then decided to set it aside.  As often times happens after looking at it a bit I decided it wasn't so bad and I loved the way it folded differently so I thought I could use it for Sunday Sketches.  This is one of those times I create the card and then the sketch.

Sunday Sketches SS30

For the card base I used the Thick Whisper White cardstock 6" x  5 1/2"  folded in half to create a 3" x 5 1/2" card front. I am excited to say Very Vanilla will have an optional Thick too in the New 2017 Annual Catalog!  Love using this firmer cardstock for the card bases. 

Sunday Sketches SS030 Card Sketch using Stampin Up Products www.stampstodiefor-1

The stamps I used for today's card are from the Number of Years stamp set with coordinating Large Number Framelits.  I like how the numbers don't stamp solid giving a bit of dimension. I stamped them in Basic Gray and attached them with dimensionals to a Smoky Slate 2 7/8" circle I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Big Shot.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the stitched shapes if you hadn't noticed.

The polka dot paper (2 1/4" x 5 1/4") is from the Naturals Designer Series Paper Stacks. 

Happy is stamped in Basic Black and the ribbon is the retiring 1/8" Stitched Smoky Slate Ribbon.

This card will fit into our Medium Envelopes for mailing.   Hope this fun fold sketch will inspire you to stamp a card.

I love Stampin' Up!'s watercolor paper it is easy to get a nice stamped image while being textured enough to give an amazing watercolor look.  I stamped the image in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Then coloring with classic ink colors Delightful Dijon, Old Olive and Crumb Cake and a blender pen.

 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today's card sketch.

Love the Mediterranean Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Usually I create a card sketch and then stamp the card.  For today's Sunday Sketch SS029 I created the Sketch from a card.  My arm is making good progress so hopefully will be back to stamping next week. 

Sunday Sketches SS028 card sketch series by Stamps to Die For www.stampstodiefor.com

Today card was created by my stamping demo friend Amy Storie.  Her work is amazing and I always feel blessed to receive a card from her.  This card was part of the Stampin' Up! Advisory Board Occasions Catalog Swap.  I was honored in 2012 to be asked to serve on the Advisory board at Stampin' Up!  6 Demonstrators from across the US and Canada are selected.  It is an experience I will never forget.

Mediterranean Moments stamp set by Stampin' Up!

She used the Mediterranean Stamp Set that was inspired by my other demo friend Susan Nygaard.  Susan has sold over 1 million dollars in stamps during her career as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - can you imagine - that's a lot of stamps.  When a demonstrators reaches 1M they are flown out to Salt Lake City, Utah for a special celebration.  One of the exciting activities while there are there is working with the Stampin' Up! artist team and create a stamp set. 

SS029

Today's Sunday Sketch SS029

Sunday Sketches SS029

See the dolly sticking out from behind the stamped image?  The Dollies are two toned -  whisper white on one side - very vanilla on the other.   The image was watercolored with the colored pencils and aqua painters.  If you love to watercolor you will love the new watercolor pencils.  When using the watercolor pencils you will want to be sure to use the Basic Black Archival Ink pad on the Watercolor Paper. 

The Retired List will come out tomorrow April 10 - I will be posting a link to a downloadable PDF Tuesday.  You can check my ONLINE STORE and I am sure Stamipin' Up! will have a link to the retired items on Monday if you can't wait.
