Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted


Here is a beautiful sympathy card for you today....





I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest (designed by Jolene Harms) and knew we had to make it at our Simple, Beautiful Card Class earlier this month.

I featured a few of my favorite retiring stamp sets at our Card Class, and this is one of those sets that I'm REALLY sad to see go!

I just love how you can make it look like you watercolored the flowers and leaves with a couple of stamps!!  I even tricked a few people at class (they thought we were using our Aquapainter or Blender Pens at first!).

Just watch this video to learn exactly how....

So, what did you think of this card??  Do you love the stamp set now as much as I do??




I'd love to hear what you thought of this card!!

Biggest Birthday Ever


Here's a fun birthday card for you today :).

You can never have too many cute cards on hand for all those special birthdays in your life!




We start our card with a Pool Party card base, then added a piece of Calypso Coral and Whisper White card stock, along with a piece of the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper to our card.

Sorry, as I'm writing this blog post, it looks this DSP is already sold out!  Any DSP with polka dots or a small, subtle pattern would work just as well!





Next, we stamped our ice cream in Calypso Coral ink and our ice cream cone in Smoky Slate ink.

These images can be found in the Biggest Birthday Ever Stamp Set (just one of MANY stamp sets that are retiring on May 31!).

To see a complete list of retiring stamp sets and accessories, just click here.

We also die-cut our ice cream cone with the coordinating Wish Big Framelits (another retiring item).

You can also order this stamp set and framelits in a bundle and save 10%!!

Then, we stamped "Happy Birthday" from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set in Pool Party ink and flagged the end of this strip with our Triple Banner Punch.

Tasty Treats Scrapbook Pages


Here are some fun summer scrapbook pages for you today :).  It's really (finally!) starting to feel like summer around here in Michigan, so I thought these would be appropriate to share today!

Here you go......  I hope you enjoy!



We start our first page with a Whisper White base then added a piece of Early Espresso card stock to our page.  

We also added a couple of strips of the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom of our page.  This paper is perfect for capturing those fun, summer (ice cream eating!) memories!

This Designer Series Paper is retiring on May 31 (or sooner, if supplies run out before then).  To see all of the retiring items, just click here.  

And... make sure to......

We also added a couple of pieces of the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper to the top of our page - we punched the ends of these pieces with our Banner Triple Punch for a fun effect.

Next, we stamped that cute ice cream cone using our Cool Treats Stamp Set.  We stamped our ice cream in Pool Party ink, our chocolate topping in Early Espresso ink and our ice cream cone in Crumb Cake ink.

Then, we die cut this piece with our Layering Circle Framelits and added a Watermelon Wonder scallop circle die-cut with the same framelits.

Here's a peak at our second page....


On this page, we start with an Early Espresso base, then added a strip of the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper to the top of our page.

We also added 2 pieces of Watermelon Wonder card stock to our page (to frame our pics!).





Then, we did some more stamping (using our Cool Treats Stamp Set)....

-we stamped our ice cream in Flirty Flamingo ink
-we stamped the ice cream swirls in Watermelon Wonder ink
-we stamped our ice cream cone in Crumb Cake ink
-we stamped the word "SWEET" in Pear Pizzaz ink

We also added a couple of Subtles Enamel Shapes to our ice cream cone.  I think they kind of look like sprinkles - yum!

Next, we die-cut our ice cream cone using the coordinating Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.

You can purchase this stamp set and framelits separately, or save 10% when you buy them in the bundle.  But... make sure to order the bundle ASAP, as it retires on May 31.  The stamp set and framelits will still be available to purchase after June 1 (just not at the reduced bundled price!).

Finally, we layered our ice cream cone on top of a Peekabook Peach circle die-cut with the Layering Circle Framelits and then added a Lace Doily behind that.  The Lace Doilies are already sold out, but the Delicate White Doilies would work just as well!
