We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop Final Look at Mini

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our Team Blog Hop!  This month's theme has us reflecting on the retiring January - April 2024 Mini Catalog.  There are so many great items that will be going away after April 30th so that is what we are sharing.

I had to go with the Gold Foiled Flowers Cards & Envelopes.  These are an absolute favorite of mine.  They are actually from the Forever Love Suite Collection (see links below) but you can always order the cards & envelopes separately.  

I'm sharing 3 Different ways I have used the cards:

1.)  Random coloring with Stampin' Blends

  • I used Lemon Lolly and Old Olive blends
  • Die cut pieces (labels and leaves) are from the Thoughtful Expressions Bundle
  • Embellished with the retiring Brushed Metallic Dots

2.)  Highlight coloring with Blending Brushes

  • I used the regular and small blending brushes and inks; Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green
  • Use the brushes again to color the Paper Butterflies (ANOTHER RETIRING FAVORITE); Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather
  • Embellish again with the Brushed Metallic Dots

3.) Not using the Gold Foiled Flowers card as the Card Base

  • I cut the foiled card in half then down to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8
  • Mount onto Basic Black CS
  • Layered the Thoughtful Expressions Dies and kept everything black including the Black Paper Butterfly!!!

Classic Happy Birthday

We all need birthday cards, right?  Do you over think your project sometimes, because I know I do. 

Here is a great one that you can make without much thought (not that you want to lessen the sentiment of the card), but you know what I mean.  The best part too, make it in any color you want. 

Keep reading for a few tips on how to step-up the look!

Here's my classic birthday card:

20231026_081037

I am absolutely Obsessed with that font!!!

It is from the Go To Greetings stamp set and what I love is the basic greetings (Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Just A Note, Thank You) are in several different font styles and sizes.  What a fabulous idea.  The elegant border is cut from the Distressed Gold 12x12 specialty paper, using the Elegant Border Dies - which is an Online Exclusive Item.   

Here is my list of supplies I used BUT...  keep reading for ideas on how to Step Up This Card!

HOW TO STEP UP THIS PROJECT:

#HB2U Birthday Card

Hello there... 

So we have another teenager on our hands!  My nephew turned 13 and I can hardly believe it.  He is a very energetic and curious boy and Auntie enjoys our time together.  He is still wanting to hang out with me, with an occasional snuggle, I take what I can get.  The snuggles are lessening so I adore those that I do get. 

Just like pictures, I take them when I can get them.  Ha! Ha!  Kids are so funny... 

20231112_143949

For his birthday, he wanted to spend the weekend with me.  So when we got to celebrate with family and friends, I made this card inspire by a card I saw made by SU Demo Amanda Mertz.  Inside he found thirteen one dollar bills (yes, only $13 as I spent a small fortune the weekend he was with me...lol).  

#HB2U #stampwithlisabrown

I used Thick Basic White card stock for the card base and Basic Black for the mat.  I die cut the #HB2U out of this black mat to save paper.  I also die cut each one three times to layer up and it made them kind of pop.  I highly recommend using our Adhesive Sheets and the letters and numbers are thin.  The adhesive sheets made it a breeze to adhere. 

I cut random angles from the Glorious Gingham 6x6 Designer Series Paper.  Not much stamping on this one, except my happy birthday sentiment inside, but I like how it turned out.   Hope you do to.

Sending A Note of Thanks Card

Hello there ~

I have another daisy card for you, but this one is only using the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper along with Sending Smiles stamp set and Sending Dies, which I seem to be using a lot!  The dies are one of my most favorite sets.  

Daisy, the happy flower.  My mom just loved Shasta Daisies and the below design is what I'm call the Shasta daisy.  Mom looked forward to them blooming every year.  When they had their front flower bed re-landscaped, going to pick out fresh, new Shasta plants was at the top of her list. 

I used Lemon Lolly card stock for the card base on this one.  Happy flowers deserve happy colors!

#stampwithlisabrown #creativecardcloset #sendingdaisythanks

The beautiful daisy paper does all the work here.  No sense messing with perfection and beauty. 

Stampin' Up has some of the best Designer Series Paper on the market.  They have just released 5 New Online Exclusive papers.   Mark sure to check them out.... especially the Tartan Foil!

We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop - Simple Stamping

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our August Team Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring Simple Stamping, so I took that to heart and went back to the basics of Stamps, Ink and Paper!

I have to projects to show you, but you can do with literally any stamp set.  I did find that lighter ink colors work best for the background as even the two light colors I chose, gave some great color. 

EVERLASTING BEAUTY Stamp Set

#creativecardcloset #everlastingbeauty

The blue is Balmy Blue, ink and card stock.  I used Stampin' Up! acrylic Block D to mount my image on so I used Block D to create the background.  I just inked the whole block with my ink pad and stamped it onto my white paper.  

I do have to say... definitely use our Foam Mat when stamping the inked block onto your paper. 

COFFEE WITH FRIENDS stamp set

#creativecardcloset #coffeewithfriends

For this one, I turned the direction of my card and added a mat layer of card stock, which is Petal Pink.  Petal Pink is also what I inked Block E with to create the background.  I like how this one filled up a lot of the white card stock.  The card base is the New In Color Moody Mauve.  It is such a great color.  

See.... I told you, can not get more basic and Simple than that.  Now, you can always bling up your card, add some ribbon, or do some fussy cutting of images, but a handmade card is always appreciated, no matter what it looks like.   

I hope you like my projects but....
