Crafty Challenge Blog Hop

Good morning my creative friends! Today's Crafty Challenge Blog Hop is a color challenge. It just so happens that this is one of my all time favorite color collections. It's so bright and fun!

It reminds me of Debbie Gibson's Electric Youth. 


And of course, all the "latest fashion"! Bright colors and LOTS of it!


Ok, so I'm an 80's girl. I LOVED that stuff!!

Well, you can kinda see the resemblance in today's color challenge. Right? Or is it just me? lol.

I really enjoy this color combination and had a terrific time creating this fun card for you, so like, check it out! ok?


I started out with a Melon Mambo card base (4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2").  Then, with the help of the Color & Contour bundle (Hello Scalloped Contours Dies), I added a layer of Basic White Cardstock, then a layer of Granny Apple Green Cardstock, then a die cut piece of Bermuda Bay, and finally, A piece of Basic White for the stamping.  I also added a piece of Basic White to the inside. 

The Color & Contour stamp set is very sweet as well.  I stamped the large flower stem in Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped the flowers (two-step stampin') in Melon Mambo.  That "AMAZING" sentiment was also stamped in Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the flower again, on the left edge of the inside panel and also on the envelope, because..... "NO NAKED INSIDES, AND NO NAKED ENVELOPES!"  Right?  

A few of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels added the finishing touch to my card. 


If you don't already have the Scalloped Contours Dies, this is DEFINITELY a set you need in your collection! There are unlimited possibilities with it!  You can find all of the products I used down below and click the images to go directly to that item in my webstore. How convenient is that?!

Art Gallery Make-It Monday


Hello there friends! It's time for another Make-It Monday!! This week, we're going to be combining some old with some new to create a sweet Thank You card.  

I'm using the Art Gallery Stamp set because I love the two step stamped flower and the simple sweet sentiment.  They go so well together!

Here's what you'll need: 
Card Base - 4 1/4" x 11" Misty Moonlight Cardstock scored at 5 1/2" 
Layer #1 - 3" x 5" Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Layer #2 - 3" x 1" Harvest Meadow DSP
Layer #3 - 2 3/4" x 4" Basic White Cardstock
Inside Panel - 4" x 5 1/4" Basic White Cardstock
Envelope Flap (optional) - 5 7/8" x 2 1/4" Harvest Meadow DSP

Inks: BumbleBee, Mossy Meadow, Misty Moonlight

Holiday Basic Rhinestones

Here's the Layout Sketch I used for my card: 


With the 2 3/4" x 4" piece of Basic White Cardstock, stamp the two step flower in BumbleBee and the stem in Mossy Meadow.  Then, stamp "Thank You" in Misty Moonlight.  

I also stamped the flower and stem just the same on the inside panel and the front corner of the envelope.

With the stamping done, use your choice of adhesives (I use Stampin' Seal +) to adhere the inside panel and layer the BumbleBee DSP, then the Misty Moonlight DSP to the front of the card base.  Then, add dimensionals to the back of the White layer and attach it to the front of the card.  Next, add a few of the Navy Holiday Rhinestones to the front.  

If you choose to coordinate the envelope, attach the 5 7/8" x 2 1/4" DSP to the flap and trim around the edges. I like to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue for this to ensure a good hold all around the edges of the flap. 

This is a terrific card to show off some of your favorite Designer Series Papers!  Try this layout with products you have on hand and let me know what you think of it! 

I'd love to see your completed card!  Share a photo of it in The Stampin' Chic's Facebook Group.

Enjoy The Moment - CASE IT Wednesday

Good morning friends! I have a really neat CASE IT project to share with you today. It comes from page 26 of the Annual Catalog and features the "Enjoy The Moment" stamp set. The first moment I saw this incredible card, I knew I had to CASE IT.  The technique used on it is spectacular!


I think it's totally awesome how the middle section looks like a piece of torn Designer Series Paper glued to the front of the card, when it's actually inked directly onto the white layer! SO COOL!

Here's how to do that incredible technique: 

Get a couple pieces of scrap paper. I used some copy paper that I ink on when making my cards.  I added a little touch of adhesive to the backside of a 5 1/2" x 3" piece of Basic White Cardstock, and tacked it to one of the scrap pieces.  


The other scrap piece got torn in half lengthwise, and then taped over the top and bottom edges of the white cardstock. 


I used Sahara Sand and Soft Succulent inks with Blending Brushes to apply color to the exposed mid section. The images were stamped in Misty Moonlight ink.  Once it was dry, I carefully removed the scrap papers and set the White layer aside. 


The card base is a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Misty Moonlight Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".  The DSP strips are from the new HOST EXCLUSIVE Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack.  Each strip is 5 1/2" x 1" and are attached approximately 5/8" from the top and bottom of the card front.  Then, that beautiful custom White piece is layered in the middle. 

As you can see from the photo here, I chose to use that same technique on the inside panel (bottom left) and the envelope.  


I embossed the large image with Gold Emboss Powder and then fussy cut it out.  It's adhered with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Then, I attached a bow tied from the Baker's Twine Essential Pack to the flower stem.  "A little note..." stamped in Misty Moonlight ink is layered onto the card with dimensionals. 


I really enjoyed this technique and will DEFINITELY be trying it again with a totally different color scheme and theme! Stay tuned!!! :-D
