Butterfly Basics Thank You Card

This weeks theme at Stampin' Royalty is a Color Challenge!

They are mostly the retiring In Colors, which makes me sad they are going away, as they have been my favorite colors so far! BUT!  My eyes have seen the upcoming In Colors, and i do love most of them! (but these are still my faves haha)

Painted Petals, Night of Navy and Crushed Curry

For this one,  i used minimal supplies, which is always fun, because that means less clean-up!
For the stripes at the bottom, i just used the stripes from the Painted Petals set stamped in Crushed Curry to make this piece. i then layered it with a Crushed Curry strip and the main panel. I added a few sequins to give it a bit of sparkle, like the photo inspiration!

I did, however, stamp the flowers separate and glued them directly on the panel, so that the image would not be muddied by the background stamp. The background stamp came from Gorgeous Grunge.

Guy Greetings, Graduation Card

This card was actually quite easy to put together.
For this one, i used star punches, but you can also use Dies. Adding some Gold Glimmer paper really takes this card to the top!
**I had received  an inquiry as to how i made the graduation cap....
for the bottom part, i punched out a circle, and just cut it free hand to make the curved pointed part, and for the top, had a somewhat rectangular piece that I also just free hand cut into a sideways diamond shape. for the tassel holder, i punched out a small circle, glued it on, then added Crystal Effects on the top and let it dry :o)   Lastly i used dimensionals to pop up the top part.

Supplies -
Ink - Black
Stamps - Guy Greetings
Cardstock - Naturals White
Accessories - Star Punches, Circle Punches, Star Border Punch, Gold Glimmer Paper, Circle Dies.

Painted Petals, Kinda Eclectic, Mothers Day Card for Stampin' Royalty

This weeks Stampin' Royalty theme is Mothers!!
i can't think of many other things better to celebrate than mothers! 

This card is actually very simple and fun to make, the best kind of card, wouldn't you say?
It can pretty much explain itself... Just did two step stamping for the flowers from the Painted Petals set and added a butterfly in Strawberry Slush from the Kinda Eclectic set. I used an old Mothers Day stamp for the sentiment and tied a ribbon around the main panel to finish it off! 

Ink - Strawberry Slush, Basic Gray, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzazz, Cardstock - Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant

Bloom With Hope, Petite Pairs, Kinda Eclectic Birthday Card!

This Weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is a
Color Challenge!

I guess the only thing that really needs much explaining is that i stamped the leaf image using Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Whisper White and layered it behind another panel that i had used my Labels Collection Dies on to make a window. After i had cut out the window, i ran it through my Big Shot using my Woodgrain Embossing Folder.

I Watercolored the flower and also the leaves. using my Rich Razzleberry ink an also my Blackberry Bliss ink. I used a mask over the leaves and then sponged the background with Pacific Point Ink, Both Butterflies are also made with Pacific Point ink, but one was stamped off first.

Sea Street, Cycle Celebration

There is an awesome sketch this week at Stampin' Royalty!  That was how i came up with this little card! I just bought this Sea Street set, and i really like it! it basically has almost everything you need just in the set to make all kinds of cute cards! i love how you can use many of the stamps for making your own background papers, like i did with the rope panel.  The sentiment is from Cycle Celebration, and i used my marker to color just the portion of the words that i wanted.

Painted Petals, Bloom With Hope, Birthday Card

Oh, look! i made another birthday card! haha... I do seem to go through them quite fast, and this is probably why i always make my cards birthday cards.
This is another of my Stampin' Royalty sample cards, as this weeks theme is Watercoloring!

 I made this card using the Painted Petals Stamp Set, Bloom With Hope stamp set, and the Irresistibly Yours designer series paper, that let me just tell you how much i L-O-V-E!

I started by watercoloring the Irresistibly Yours designer series paper with Soft Sky and Wisteria Winder, then also watercolored a little bit in the main image panel with Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz. I then stamped the stems over the watercoloring, and matted the piece on Sahara Sand. I punched the butterflies out of Soft Sky and added some pearls, then i cut a small strip of vellum and stamped Happy Birthday on it with StazOn, then directly on the back, i used straight Wisteria Wonder ink and my paintbrush and colored behind the words. I then used a strip of Whisper White to line the back, and also added white brads to each side to hold the vellum and white strip together. it also gives me a place to put the dimensionals so they wont be seen.

I layered the pieces, adding some White Satin Ribbon and some White Bakers Twine along the bottom before adhering it all to the cardbase.  This is so much more 'frilly' looking than i am used to, but i really like the way it turned out :o)

You Plus Me

Here is my card for the Embossing Challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week!

I stamped the dots on the Whisper White with Blushing Bride, then stamped again using Versamark, then embossed with Gold Embossing powder. I dry embossed the Blushing Bride circles using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. I also used the You + Me stamp in versamark to emboss the image, then punched it out and layered it on a Blushing Bride circle. I used Gold Dotted Washi Tape from the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape set along the bottom to give it a little more visual texture, added a white ribbon and mounted the whole thing on Blushing Bride cardstock! 
It was kind of an experiment :o)  here it is!

Supplies - 

Cardstock - Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Stamps - You Plus Me
Accessories - White Ribbon, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Gold Embossing Folder, Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape
