Border Buddy Saturday - Color Theory Suite by Stampin' Up!

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddy Saturday, Patsy here.  I am counting the days until I meet Alison in Thailand for a very exciting trip that we both earned through Stampin' Up! for our personal sales and team promotions. 

We couldn't do it without all you amazing stampers!  Thanks for following our blogs and ordering from us when you can.

Colorful Seasons Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com a


Today's card features the Colorful Seasons and Weather Together stamp sets.  Last Sunday I shared with you a card I made using the Weather Together stamp set.  This week I used it along with the beach chair from the colorful seasons stamp set to welcome in Summer. 

The photopolymer stamp sets make it easy to line up the chair fabric in any color you wish.  I choose Berry Burst Classic Ink along with Early Espresso to hand stamp my chair.

The umbrella I stamped in Early Espresso on a piece of the Eastern Palace Designer Series paper and cut it out with the Big Shot and the coordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits Die.

The Thinking of You sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and stamped on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock in Early Espresso Classic Ink.

I finished the banner off with one of the New Bitty Felt Bows oh how I love these.  They are self adhesive so just peel and stick!

Just in Case Coffee Cafe

It's Just in CASE Thursday, the day where Patsy Waggoner and I share a card we've created using a sketch from one of the current catalogues.  We sometimes copy the card exactly or we change up the stamps and the colours.  It's much easier to create I think when you use another card for inspiration.

CASE = Copy and Share Everything

The card I CASEd used the So Many Shells stamp set and is featured on page 39 of the Annual Catalogue.

The brick work in this card is made using the new Embossing Paste. 

My card features the Coffee Break Suite of products including the Coffee Cafe Photopolymer Stamp Set and matching Coffee Cups Framelits Dies.

I love how the Embossing Paste adds dimension to a simple card front.   The Coffee Break Designer Series Paper is fabulous.  And here's a fun fact!  The images in one of the papers matches the tiny coffee cup thinlit perfectly so you can cut them out!

  •  12" x 12"
  • 12 sheets - 2 each of 6 double-sided designs
  • Early Espresso, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Soft Suede, Whisper White

I used one of the other patterns in the Pattern Party Decorative Masks collection.  I coloured the Embossing Paste with Pear Pizzazz reinker (just one drop and a little bit of paste).  The paste dries quickly on the mask so wash it off right after using so it doesn't harden.

Here are the products I used in my card today.

Colour Your World Blog Hop! Sharing Sweet Thoughts

Colour Your WOrld banner

It's time for our Colour Your World blog hop where Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world share their projects using this month's colour palette.  We then invite you to share your creations using the same palette on our Facebook Group! Please Join Us!

Here is this month's palette - isn't it bright and fresh?!

Colour Your World Blog June 2017 Palette

I try and use as many of the colours as I can in my cards but it's not a requirement to use them all each month. I managed to use every colour this month except Tangerine Tango.  My card today uses the brand new Ronald McDonald stamp set called Sharing Sweet Thoughts.  Stampin' Up! donates $3 to Ronald McDonald House for every stamp set sold.

Sharing Sweet Thoughts Stamp Set 2 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I love how the set coordinates with the Everyday Jar Framelits dies so no fussy cutting!

I love the little ladybug stamp - so cute.  This is such a cute set and so summery.

Screen Shot 2017-06-14 at 4.05.01 PM

Here are some more projects made by the concept artists at Stampin' Up!.  There are those ladybugs on the branch in the jar.

Sharing Sweet Thoughts Stamp Set 3 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I stamped the lid in Basic Black on the Pear Pizzazz cardstock and cut out with the matching framelit.  The jar was also cut out easily with the matching framelit.  The So Saffron card base was embossed using the new Pinewood Planks folder.  It beautiful and creates a deep dimensional embossed impression.  I wanted to keep the "wood" feel so used a piece of patterned paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.   I watercolored the images with inks and Aqua Painters (strawberries) and Blender Pens (butterflies).

Here are the products I used in today's card - you can click on the pictures and be directed to my online store for ordering.

Card Swap Sunday! Delightful Daisy Suite

It's Card Swap Sunday, the day I share a card I've made for a swap or received in a swap.  Today I'm featuring a card I received from my friend, Liane Binder (check out her blog!) using the Delightful Daisy Suite of products.

Delightful Daisy colour blocking 2 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I love the fresh summery look of Liane's card.  Liane created the amazing background with the Timeless Textures stamp.  The colours are Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party.

Delightful Daisy colour blocking 4 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Liane stamped the daisy on the stripes first and then stamped and punched out a second daisy from a scrap.  The punched daisy was stacked offset with a Stampin' Dimensionals.  A clear Faceted Gem is added to the center of the daisy for some bling!

Here are the products that Liane used in today's card (PLEASE NOTE: the Daisy Punch and Delightful Daisy Bundle are not available until June 26th):
