Merry Merlot in a Tuscan Vineyard!

I just could not resist it………….. using the Tuscan Vineyard Stamp set with the Merry Merlot ink and card!!!!!!  With the exception of a little glint of gold I made this card monocromatic so the images really pop out.  I am thinking that this will be one of my sweet and simple cards where I use one stamp set, some card and ink, an embellishment and a couple of tools.

Card base:  11 x 4 1/4 Merry Merlot Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla Card

Layer 2: 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 Merry Merlot Card

Layer 3: 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 Very Vanilla Card

Banner 4 1/4 x 1 1/4 Merry Merlot and 4 1/4 x 1 Very Vanilla Card

Ink Colors: Merry Merlot

Layer 1 was stamped randomly with the Bunches of Grape Stamp, then attached to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  Layers 2 and 3 are popped up on  4 – 5 Stampin Dimensionals, as it the banner at the base of the card.

A trio of gold metallic pearls and we have a card ready to send.  I did not add a greeting to this card, partly because the stamp set does not have any but also I think it would work for any occasion, don’t you?

Sheltering Tree Condolences ~ Stampin’ UP!

We all have to face the fact that there will be times we need to send a card to someone who has lost a family member or dear friend – not the type of cards we would put on top of our list but necessary all the same, I think they are some of the hardest cards to create – I guess because they are so sad but my hope is it will bring just a little comfort.

Today’s card brings together two stamp sets ~ Sheltering Tree and Kindness and Compassion which has 8 different sayings in a lovely script.

Sweet and Simple ~ Truly Tailored

Today’s card is another in my Sweet and Simple series where I have set myself a little challenge using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal!

Well today’s specatular card also bids a fond farewell to Emerald Envy – about to retire at the end of May.

I chose the Truly Tailored Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog – perfect for guy type cards, birthday as well as for Father’s Day coming in June. Continue reading

Virtual Pajama Party…….

One of the nice things about being part of the Stampin’ Up! family is having lots of Stampin’ sisters.  A few  weeks ago my Stampin’ Up! ‘grandmother’ organised a virtual pajama party thru Facebook.  We all logged on at 7pm Central and shared ideas, posted projects we were working on etc.  At the end Sharon asked us to post our addresses so that we could each send cards to one another as a sort of a swap.
