A CASE of a CASE for TGIFC70

Hello!  Today I went over to the TGIF Challenge site and found a CASE the Designer Challenge.  I CASEd Holly's card.  Not until I was done, did I realize her card was a CASE of Cathy Caines.  So that makes my card a CASE of a CASE.  Confused?

Here's a look at my card:


Here's Holly's card:

And here's Cathie's card that started the chain reaction:


It's interesting to see how an idea begins and morphs through multiple interpretations, isn't it?

Here's how I CASEd Holly:

  • I implemented Holly's sketch exactly.
  • Instead of feathers, I used flamingos which have feathers.
  • My color scheme is Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo along with a pop of black.  Holly uses purples and pinks in her feathers as well.
  • I stamped my flamingos using the Baby Wipe Technique so I could make them multi-colored like Holly's feathers.
I have to show you this picture before I close.  It's of a giant flamingo in front of a hotel in the town where my dad lives.  That thing's been there for as long as I can remember.

Flowers for PP310

Hi!  I'm playing along with the sketch over at the Paper Players today.  The sketch is perfect for showing off some of Stampin' Up's beautiful Designer Series Papers so that's exactly what I did.

Here's my card for today:


Isn't it sweet?  I needed a thank you card and this card is perfect.

Here's the PP310 banner that was my inspiration:


Here are the details:

  • I used Island Indigo as my card base to coordinate with the beautiful DSP from the Blooms and Bliss Paper Pack.
  • The flower pots are from the Gift From the Garden Stamp Set.  I colored the stamp with my Stampin' Write Markers.  The colors I used are Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy.
  • The sentiment from the Watercolor Wings Stamp Set is embossed in white, cut into a banner, and popped up with Dimensionals.
  • I added 3 rhinestones for some sparkle.

This card is on its way to my friend, Gloria.  She brought me a HUGE piece of homemade cheesecake and I savored it down to the very last crumb!  Gloria also brought me a bag of jawbreakers for my candy drawer at school.  She knows this girl loves her sweets!  LOL

Spooky Fun for GDP050

I have a fun and super easy Halloween card for you that was inspired by the Global Design Project's sketch challenge for this week.  Let's get right to it and take a peek at my card:


Here is the GDP050 sketch that was my inspiration:
As you can see the sketch is very open ended.  I chose to keep it simple and let the paper and stamp set shine (or glow in the dark.)

Here are the details:
  • I let the Halloween Night Specialty DSP be the star on my card.  I love all of the spooky little details on this paper.
  • The stamp set I used for my card is Spooky Fun.  I stamped the greeting from the set in Pumpkin Pie.
  • The witch is also from Spooky Fun.  I stamped her in Archival Basic Black then colored her with my Stampin' Write Markers. I used the coordinating Halloween Scenes Edgelets Dies to cut her out.
Halloween will be here be we know it!  Glad I have my first Halloween card of many, finished.

Happy stampin',

Displaying Fall Forward - August 2016.png

Welcome to InKing Royalty's August Blog Hop!  Stampin' Up! demonstrators have been actively ordering from the 2016 Holiday Catalog - before it opens to customers on September 1st. We are excited to share some of our new goodies with you today!  Today's Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist's take on the Fall months - Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner.  After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My project today is all about paisleys.  They are very trendy right now and Stampin' Up! has a beautiful Petals and Paisleys suite in the Holiday Catalog.  I am showing you a couple of products from this fabulous suite in my card today.

Here's my card:


Aren't those paisleys lovely?!  The stamp sets I used today are the Paisleys and Posies and Suite Seasons.  The paper is from the Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack.  I love the two patterns I used in Rich Razzleberry!

My card has a Triple Panel Standing Card Fold.  (Say that quickly 3 times!) 
Here's the scoop:
  • The card base is 8in. x 5 in. and is scored at 2, 3 5 and 6 inches.  Fold the scores starting from the left as valley, mountain, mountain, valley.
  • The Very Vanilla panel pieces are 1 7/8in. x 5 3/8 in.  You need 3.
  • The DSP panel pieces are 1 3/4in. x 5 1/4.  You need the outside panels to have the same paper with the one in the middle being different.
  • The square cardstock panel measures 4 1/8in. x 4 1/8in.
  • The square Very Vanilla panel measure 4 in. x 4 in.

It's a Razzleberry Kind of Day

Hello!  I love purple in any shade so I was thrilled to see DSP in the Holiday Catalog that features 
Rich Razzleberry!  The Petals and Paisley Specialty Designer Paper Pack has 4 sheets in it that have this yummy color.

Here's my card that uses this fun color:


I've had a busy day today so this card is Clean and Simple.  The berry basket and berries are stamped on Shimmery White cardstock using Basic Black Ink.  I watercolored the basket Mint Macaron.  I didn't want to color the berries red because I thought it would clash with the Rich Razzleberry.  I compromised and colored them in Rose Red which looks fine. I die cut the basket using one of the Layering Circles Framelets.

Take a look at the ribbon at the top.  It's one of a pack of three that come in the suite!  It works perfectly with a Very Vanilla Baker's Twine bow.

If you're a purple lover like me, give this paper pack a try!  You can order it in my online store:rmyren.stampinup.net

FMS250 for Dad's Birthday

My dad's birthday is September 1st and I need to get his card popped into the mail.  I decided to use Freshly Made Sketch 250 as my inspiration today.

Here's my card: 



Here's the challenge from FMS250:


I think I've told you before that my dad has had a love affair with horses all of his life.  He's raised Quarter Horses and mules.  He rode every chance he got until he was trail riding and the horse stumbled on a slick rock.  The horse was fine but Dad broke 7 ribs and was in the ICU for a week.  He still rode for awhile, but finally gave it up at age 80 a couple of years ago.  He's also a simple man so my I wanted to make him a Western-type card with little to no fussy stuff.

Here's what I decided upon:

  • I used Delightful Dijon as my base.
  • I pulled a beautiful piece of DSP from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack.  It reminded me of pasture ground on the farm where I grew up.
  • The stamp set I used is called Horse Frontier and is retired.  I usually refrain from retired product, but I've kept this one because it works for "Dad" cards so well.
  • I stamped the horse on Very Vanilla and embossed it in Soft Suede.  I do this by inking the stamp with VersaMark first and then right into the Soft Suede ink.  It does not hurt your ink pad at all!  I learned this from Sam Hammond.  One of my top 10 best tricks EVER!  
  • After embossing the horse I used colored pencils to shade in the image.
  • I mounted the image on a Delightful Dijon oval with Dimensionals.
I think I have a winner as far as my dad is concerned.  I hope you like it too!  If so, please sign up to get my blog delivered right to your email so you can see more of my projects.

Happy stampin',

Share and Celebrate with a Birthday Card

I've been trying to finish this post for a few days now.  Between getting my room ready for the start of a new school year and being out of town to celebrate our anniversary, time kept slipping away.  Anyway, here it is.  I hope you think it was worth waiting for!  

My card  uses Shake and Celebrate, a new set from the Holiday Catalog along with its coordinating Shaker Shapes Framelets.  This is a great set.  The framelets and stamps make a Christmas bell, Christmas tree, and this cute cake.  You can order this set on September 1st.  


Isn't it a beauty?  I can't wait to mail it to someone soon.  

Here's the scoop:
  • I used the embossing folder Confetti to emboss the pretty background.
  • I used Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum to sponge the color onto the embossing.
  • The cake was die cut using the framelets.  I also cut out the cake stand and tiny flowers.
  • For the shaker, I dyed some silica beads with my Flirty Flamingo reinker along with a bit of alcohol.
  • I stamped the sentiment and adhered it over the middle window.
  • The panel is adhered to a cute polka dottted piece of DSP from the Affectionately Your Specialty DSP Paper Pack.
Let me know what you think in the comment space below.  If you like what you see, sign up to get my blog delivered to your email!

Happy Anniversary

Today is Steve and my 32nd anniversary today.  While we don't look anything like the picture below, the same love is in our eyes today.  I'm glad I'm on this life's journey with this patient and caring man.


Here's the card I made Steve for our anniversary:


Here's the scoop:

  • The train is from the Traveler stamp set. 
  • The only color you see on the card is the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler.
  • The map is stamped with a retired background stamp (World Map).
  • The rest of the DSP is from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack.
We're both busy working tomorrow, but Friday we're going to the beach to celebrate our big day.

Happy stampin'

The Bold and the Beautiful for Paper Players 308

If you need a pick-me-up, today's card is for you!  That's because I used the color combo over at The Paper Players for my inspiration today.  I pulled a fun stamp set off of my shelf to go with it.

Take a look:


See?  I told you it was cheery!  Here's why:


These colors scream "birthday" to me so that's where I went.  

Here's the low down:

  • I love the balloons from the Celebrate Today stamp set!  I'm so glad this set didn't retire!  It's perfect for a color combo like this one.
  • I used the newer set, Confetti Celebration for my sentiment and the little balloon beside it.  I thought the bold sentiment went well with the beautiful balloons.
  • I finished my card by tying my balloon bouquet together with some black and white Baker's Twine.

Tah-Dah!  Now I have a knockout card to celebrate a special friend's birthday.

Happy stampin',

Christmas Bells for PCCC206

I've been a busy girl today!  This is my second post for the day.  This post is my entry for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  The challenge is to break open some packs of pretty Designer Series Paper and use them on a card.

Take a look at how mine turned out:



Here is the banner for the PCCC Challenge:
Welcome to the Paper Craft Crew Designer Series Paper  Theme Challenge 206 hosted by Pam Staples, SunnyGirlScraps.  #papercraftcrew #sunnygirlscraps #challengeblog #papercrafts #themechallenge   Play along at www.papercraftcrew.com

Here's the low down on my card:

  • The bell is stamped using the new Shake and Celebrate stamp set.  The bow is cut using the Shaker Shapes Framelets.  I look forward to sharing more great cards from this set with you!
  • The Designer Series Paper is also new.  It's called Presents and Pine Cones and is just gorgeous on both sides!
  • I love the way my bell is framed by the cute bow DSP!  The other two pieces of DSP match the colors of the bows.
  • Where's the sentiment?  I didn't want to cover any of that gorgeous paper so I'll put my greeting on the inside of the card.


After a fun day of stamping with my friend Nancy, I head to Philadelphia tomorrow morning for more speech and voice therapy.  Then it's into school to start setting up my classroom for the new school year.  Time to get back in the groove!

Color Challenge for GDP40 and sketch challenge for Mojo Monday

I received inspiration today from two different places.  The great colors came from the Global Design Challenge and the sketch came from Mojo Monday.

Here's my card:


Here's the banner for the GDP Challenge:


And here's the banner for the Mojo Monday Challenge:


The color combo is so fresh and pretty!  I don't know why I didn't think of this combo on my own, but I'm glad someone did!  I love the doily embossed in Flirty Flamingo.  It certainly makes a statement!

As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I had to go back and use one of my favorite retired stamps.  I just love the crispness of the doily and the scalloped edges match the sketch.  The rectangle in the middle is perfect for my sentiment which uses the other two challenge colors.

Hope your Tuesday has been terrific!

Sympathy Card for CYCI#133

It's always sad when you need to send a sympathy card.  No one likes those occasions.  However, I love making sympathy cards.  I like taking extra time to make each one meaningful.  Today's card is inspired by the Can You Case It team and their color choices for this week's challenge.  

I very pleased with the way this turned out.  Take a peek:


Here is the inspiration from CYCI#133:
CYCI#133

I made the photo of my card bigger than normal so you can see all the details.  Here's the scoop:
  • The background stamp is from Our Daily Bread.  It's called Amazing Grace Hymn.  I love to use this stamp when someone needs reminding that grace is the guarantee that we will see loved ones in Heaven.
  • All my other supplies are from Stampin' Up!
  • The colors I chose to use are Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron and Soft Suede.
  • The flower and lacy stamp are from the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set.
  • The die cut leaf is from Rose Garden Thinlets Dies.
  • The pearls are colored with a retired Blendability marker.
I am grateful for grace in my life.

Touches of Nature for FabFri93

Today I decided to play along with the folks over at Fab Friday.  They have a pretty sketch up for their challenge.  Take a look at my card:


And now take a look at the sketch:


Isn't my card pretty?  Here's how it came together:

  • Instead of the flourish that the sketch suggests, I went for a spray of flowers from Touches of Nature.
  • My color scheme was taken from the pretty DSP (Designer Series Paper).  It's from the Blooms and Bliss Paper Pack.  I pulled Mint Macaron and Island Indigo to use for my colors.
  • I used Mint Macaron to add "splotches" from Touches of Nature to make my background "spray".
  • I embossed my flower spray in black and then used a blender pen to add color to the flowers.
  • I embossed my sentiment from Happy Happenings in white on an Island Indigo piece of cardstock.
  • I added a piece of Mint Macaron Lace Trim (retired) to the back of the sentiment strip.
Tah Dah!  A super easy card done in about 10 minutes!

Happy stampin',
Robin

Petals and Paisleys

As I promised yesterday, I'm back with another paisley card.  This time, I'm using the Paisley Framelets and some beautiful DSP from the Petals and Paisleys Specialty DSP Pack.  Here's my card:


Aren't the paisleys cut with the dies gorgeous?  I adore the DSP underneath the die cuts too.  Mint Macaron and Soft Suede look so pretty together.

Here's the scoop:
  • I used Soft Suede Cardstock as my base. I also used Mint Macaron and Whisper White cardstock.
  • My DSP came from the Naturals Designer Series Paper Stack, and the Petals and Paisley Specialty DSP Pack.
  • The sentiment is from a new set named Suite Seasons.  It's on page 43 in the Holiday Catalog.

Paisleys and Posies for PPA 313

I'm so excited to share one of the holiday stamp sets with you today!  Paisley Posies is perfect as a Thanksgiving set, but it can work for just about anything else your little heart desires.  Today I'm going to pair Paisley Posies with the yummy colors from the Pals Paper Arts 313 color challenge.

Here's what I came up with:



Here are the colors for the PPA Challenge:

PPA-313-Aug11

And here's the scoop
  • I stamped the large paisley shapes first in Tip Top Taupe.  I colored parts of them with my Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach markers.
  • Next, I stamped the small flowers in Flirty Flamingo.
  • The Peekaboo Peach fancy circles were the last images I stamped.
  • The wonderful sentiment is also from this Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set.  I embossed the sentiment in Tip Top Taupe.
  • My bling for this card is three Flirty Flamingo Enamel Shapes.
This fun stamp set also has framelets to match.  I'll be using them in my card for tomorrow.

Touches of Texture for PPA

Hi!  Today I get to use my favorite stamp set to make my card for the PPA 312 challenge.  Can you guess what it is?  Take a guess before scrolling down then see if you're right.

Here's my card for today:


And here's the PPA Sketch:

ppa312


Linda Callahan designed this sketch and she rules when it comes to clean and simple cards.  You would think CAS cards are simple to make, but not always.  I made 3 cards before I was satisfied with the one above.

Details:

  • My favorite stamp set of the moment is.............Touches of Texture!  Did you guess correctly?  The pretty flower, the stamping on the circle and the little bee are all from this awesome set.
  • The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP pack.  I love the dots on this piece of DSP they make me smile.
  • I let the DSP choose my color scheme which is Flirty Flamingo, Crumb Cake and a few pops of Daffodil Delight.
  • My bling for this card is the little cute little Flirty Flamingo Enamel Shapes.  Their job was to draw attention to the sentiment.
I hope this sweet card made you smile.  If it did, the card did its job!

A Hummingbird Friend for PCCCS#205

I have a love affair with birds, especially hummingbirds.  I come by this naturally.  My mom and grandmother both loved watching birds come to their feeders.  I haven't been successful in luring hummingbirds to my feeders, but I have seen them around my Butterfly Bush.  

Today's card uses the hummingbird from the Picture Perfect stamp set.  I used the sketch from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  Take a look:



Here's the sketch that I followed for the challenge:

Welcome to the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge 205 hosted by Pam Staples, SunnyGirlScraps.  #papercraftcrew #sunnygirlscraps #challengeblog #papercrafts  Play along at www.papercraftcrew.com #papercraftcrew #sketch


It's a detailed sketch and it was fun choosing all the elements for my pretty card. 

  • The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack.  The papers are so pretty in this set.  The leaf pattern was perfect for today's card.
  • The hummingbird is stamped using Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz inks.
  • The So Saffron stamping on the white panel is done with a stamp from Touches of Nature.
  • The yellow Baker's Twine is leftover from a Paper Pumpkin kit.
  • The dots next to the butterfly are from the Subtles Enamel Shapes.
  • The sentiment along with the hummingbird is from the Picture Perfect Stamp Set.
If you have pictures of hummingbirds from your yard, I'd love to see them!  Post your pictures in the comments below.

Going Nautical with GDP#047

Global Design Project has a nautical theme going on and I thought I'd sail right in after making a quick card.  Wrong!  This card took me two hours.  That's right, two hours!  Wait until you see my card and you'll wonder why.  Here it is:


I started out with a certain sketch and color scheme in my head.  I was using a navy and white striped background with a banner in red, along with the ship's wheel.  No matter how I tried it was awful!  That's when I decided to walk away for awhile.

Taking a break did the trick.  I pulled out the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack and chose a piece that resembled water and sky.  (There's actually paper in the stack that looks like that, but I'd already used it up.) 

Next, I took the ship's wheel and the lighthouse and stamped and embossed them.  I also stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set, and punched  it out with an oval punch. The oval looked a bit plain so I added pearls.

Finally, I made a ship's knot out of Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine and added it to the top.  Tah-dah!  A card I was finally happy with!

How many of you have times like I had today?  Tell me your story in the comments below.

Sunshine Sayings for CYCI#131

Today's CAS (Clean and Simple) card is for this week's Can You Case It Challenge.  This week's challenge is a color one.   When I first looked at the colors, I must admit I was stumped.  After playing around a bit I came up with this:



Here is the CYCI#131 banner:


CYCI#131 Color Challenge
  • The colors I used were Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black.
  • The flowers are from the stamp set Sunshine Sayings.
  • The sentiment is from the Here For You Stamp Set.  I love the saying in this set.  There are very down to earth.  Each verse has an innie and an outie in the same font!
  • The flower centers are punched with a regular old standard issue paper punch.
Let me know if you like this CAS.  I'm not used to making a card this basic.

Grateful Bunch Meets Mojo Monday 459

I love the sketch for Mojo Monday this week.  It has lots of detail and I had fun stamping with its inspiration.

Here's the photo of my card:


And here's the Mojo Monday Sketch:



  • I chose Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, and Pink Pirouette with a little Pear Pizzazz and Smoky Slate thrown in.
  • The background is made up of strips from the Subtles and In-color 2016-2018 Designer Series Paper Stacks.  (The hardest part of the card was matching up the text on the strips.)
  • I used the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set for the lace, flowers, leaves, and butterfly.  I punched out the flowers with the Blossom Bunch and mounted them with Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment and banner were stamped using the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set.  I punched the banner out using the Duet Banner Punch.
  • To finish up my card, I added small rhinestones to the flower centers.
I'm really pleased with this sweet card.  It's going to a lucky member of the InKing Royals team.

Happy Stampin',
Robin
