Today is the start of daylight savings time where I’m at so we on the “Spring Forward” time.  Not too sure I liked loosing an hour of sleep last night but I do have a very adorable suite of spring gift tags I made using the Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set not to mention the Honeycomb Embellishments.  Are they not just the cutest things you’ve seen lately.

Honeycomb Happiness Tags_stampers club

These fun tags were part of the Make ‘n Takes at my winter weekend retreat last month.  We only needed one sheet of Extra Thick White CS, some scraps of Soft Suede CS and Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper, a couple of  embellishments, ribbon and punches.  We used some of those markers from yesterdays post to color them in.

The Honeycomb Embellishments come in 3 colors.  Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride and White so we used a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol and a dozen drops of ink refill to color the white one for the little chick.

Enjoy

I don’t color with markers very often and when I do pull them out I’m always happy with the results.   How often do you use them?

As I was playing with my Flowering Fields Stamp Set from the 2016 Sale-a-bration selection from Stampin’ Up! I decided to use it for my Easter card this year.  Would love to know what you think of it.

Flowering Fields _stampers club

I love that the marker set has all of the Stampin’ Up! colors to choose from so it’s a great way to start out your collection of inks.   Not only can you use them to color your image but did you know you can color right onto your stamp too and many more possibilities I’ll can show you later.

For today’s card I used the Tangelo Twist and Mossy Meadow from the In-Color set and the Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Marina Mist and Soft Sky form the Many Marvelous Makers Set

Happy Stampin’

Don’t you just love it when you get inspired by a card and create another beautiful one because of it.   I am very pleased with the way this thank you card turned out.

I had just a few sheets of my coveted Sale-a-bration Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum left but this card was just calling it’s name.

To adhere the vellum only add adhesive to the center area that will be covered by the upper elements this way your adhesive won’t show thru.

Timeless Textures Thank You_stampers club

 

 

There are 2 things that really surprised me on this card.  First was the stamp set I used for the flowers.  It’s call Number of Years and who would think that name meant flowers.   There are some awesome watercolor style images that you can use to create the flower spray with all sorts of flowers.

And the   second surprise was using the new Timeless Textured Stamp Set.  This is another must have for your stamp collection.  I used this set to add some hidden texture by way of the grid pattern at the bottom of tag with Blushing Bride ink and the swirls with Hello Honey ink.

I added some Lost Lagoon DSP, Venetian Lace Ribbon and a Itty Bitty Accent punch flower with a pearl over the butterfly to add a pop of color.

How it’s made:

Card Base is Hello Honey 4 1/4 x 8 1/2

Vellum is 4 x 5 1/4

Tag and butterfly are with Very Vanilla

Greeting is stamped with Tip Top Taupe

Inks:  Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Hello Honey, Blushing Bride, Tip Top Taupe

Flower-Patch-Bookmark Card

I have seen soooo many great cards using the Flower Fair stamp set.  And of course Stampin’ Up! has made it super easy to create layering by giving us a matching Flower Flair  framelit set.  And the best news is it’s available as a bundle for a 15% savings all year long.

This is a unique card because it also has a bookmark in it that can be detached so it’s not just a card, it’s a gift too!

  Flower-Patch-front

Stampers Clubhouse Tips:

I used the Perforating Blade with the Rotary Arm Attachment to my paper cutter to create the ‘tear off’ portion for tag.Flower-Patch-Bookmark Card

To make the tag top I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch by sliding the cardstock over and past the paper guides then trimmed off the odd pieces left once it was punched.

Did you see the Big Shot Special Offer?

Stampers Clubhouse Colors:

Cardstock:  Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks:  Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Hello Honey, Mossy Mellow, Pear Pizzazz

I know it’s early yet but it sure does take the stress away and makes for some fun stamping when I get started sooner.   The Holiday catalog comes out in August and it’s always an exciting time.  My customers should start receiving their personal copy in the mail starting next week.  This year’s has to be my favorite so far.

Another thing that is changing this month is the Christmas sets and accessories from last years will the fully retired so now is the time to get them. 

Here are a few cards made with some of those items.  The snowflakes were my fav!

I know it’s still summer but like most scrapbooking the pages don’t always  get done during the current season.  In fact we are sometimes months behind but hey that’s all good because it also helps us go down memory lane. 

October 2013 scrapbook layout

I have a very thoughtful page I actually made a few months ago and still need to get some photos on. I hope this will inspire you to make your own fall pages and it will either help you with getting your photos from a previous fall out or you will be ahead of the game this fall.

My husband wanted to take a buddies wife a thank you for keeping her husband away for a few evenings in row for some work on his boat and asked if I would make a simple bottle of win not so simple anymore.  This wine bottle tag was quick & easy stamping which I really needed since he needed it in a snap and I was on my way to a class.

Flower Shop wine bottle tag
I still had some of that lovely Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Ribbon that retired this year and so miss it.  I sure hope it shows up in Stampin’ Up!’s Clearance Rack so I can get some more.  I embossed the flower with gold embossing powder popped it onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that I punched with the amazing Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and added a splash more pizazz with some Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape and poof  it was done.

I’m pretty sure my husband was forgiven.

I think this has become my go to stamp set.  It’s called Endless Birthday Wishes.  Very appropriate.  There are just so many greetings in it.

Endless Birthday Wishes

I was really worried when I ordered the Lullaby Designer Paper but let me just say I have yet to make a baby card with it yet.   I love the color combinations and the patterns.

What do you think about those super cute blingy stars.  Sequins to be exact.  What a great way to embellish.  LOVE it!

The stamp set is one of Stampin’ Up!’s photopolymer sets so it was super easy to line up the words too.
