ART GALLERY ON STENCIL PASTE X 2

 



HOST CODE:  DSZY4PYG
Hello, Stampers!
    I do love the Art Gallery Bundle - it is SO easy to work with.  I created the raggedy background for these cards with SU embossing paste and a stencil by Sugar Pea Designs on Seaside Spray card stock.  Any of our SU background stencils would look great, too - I just wanted some texture. The large "hugs" on the bottom card is by Honey Bee Stamps.

THESE STITCHED TRIANGLES GLIMMER . . .


 Host Code:  DSZY4PYG

Hi, Stampers!

    As some of you know, I love abstract backgrounds (and sparkle) and have been playing with abstract backgrounds using a gel press. But then, I came across this post on Pinterest by "stampitupwithjaimie" and HAD to order the die set:

HEY CHICK and HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK - Such fun bundles to play with!


 Hello, Stampers!

    It's been a while.  I just love the Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Bundles.  They're so easy to use separately or to combine elements from each.  Below are are a few details and the supplies for this card.

    All of my die cuts were stamped onto Shimmery White CS, my favorite for focal points.  I love the subtle sparkle and it works so well with Blends and Markers.

    The DSP I used are Paper Blooms and Oh So Ombre.  The Ombre piece is 2-3/4 x 4.

Happy Stampin’!

RHODE ISLAND RED HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK

 

HOST CODE:  2J4TB4B6
Hi, Stampers!
    Here's another Hey Birthday/Hey, Chick Bundles combo card for you.  The idea for the stacked feed sacks is from Debbie Henderson, Debbiesdesigns blog.  
    I love this Rhode Island Red ready to celebrate your birthday.  She is colored with Light and Dark Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends and a little Wink of Stella on her wings, tail, etc.  I sponged a little Granny Apple Green at the bottom of my 3x4 piece of Oh So Ombre DSP (FREE with a $50 order during SAB - which, BTW, ends in just a couple of days).  I used Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand CS for the sacks.
    Click below for more colors and supplies.

Happy Stampin’!

HEY, BIRTHDAY CHICK - HELP ME DOWN! - SALE-A-BRATION ENDS 2/28!


 Hello, Stampers!

    This tubby little hen is yelling for help!  One balloon would have been enough and now she's out of control.  ;-)  

    I've used elements from both Chick Bundles for this birthday notecard, as you will see below when you see the inside!  I had fun playing with the different dies.  All of my stamped images are on Shimmery White CS.  You'll have to click below and go to my blog to see more, colors, etc.  

Happy Stampin’!

BUMBLEBEE AND TERRACOTTA SU FINE ART FLORAL


 HOST CODE  2J4TB4B6

Hello, Stampers!

    Remember, Sale-a-Bration ends this month!  Can you tell I love this Art Gallery Bundle?  And I wasn't going to order anymore flowers. Ha!  It's just so easy to use with any colors you like from subtle to bold.

    I picked the colors above, Bumblebee and Terracotta Tile, because I saw them on the cover of a lovely photobook posted on her blog by Jan Clothier, a demo in New Zealand.  Jan chose Night of Navy for her base, etc.  I used Misty Moonlight.  The flowers and leaves are stamped on Shimmery White cardstock.  The leaves are Mossy Meadow.

    I created a textured background for my card using the Potted Succulents Dies and Thick cardstock, but in my opinion, you could get the same effect with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Supplies are below.

Happy Stampin’!

SIMPLY SUCCULENTS on ROCOCO ROSE


 Hello, again, Stampers!

    This pot of succulents is mounted with Dimensionals on a piece of Oh So Ohmbre DSP in Rococo Rose.  There are print sides and plain sides of this FREE Sale-a-Bration 6x6 DSP.  Rococo Rose is one of my favorite colors.  

    I used pretty much the same Blends and marker colors on this card as I used on the card I posted on February 1, just tweeking them a little.  I die-cut the pretty coordinating openwork background from Whisper White/Basic THICK card stock for stablity.  The only place I used adhesive was around the outside edge.
