Soft & Sweet Sale-a-bration Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper

Have you seen it? The Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper from our Sale-a-bration selection? If you love soft and lovely colors that make you think spring, you’re going to want to stock up on this paper!

And the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 162977) has wonderful little birds on one side too, with a more neutral or floral pattern on the back. Team it up with your favorite sentiment set that you need for the occasion and you’ll be set to create all kinds of products. I can’t wait to use the little flowers for Easter projects.

Check out these cards using this wonderful Designer Series Paper. This first card uses a 2 3/8″ Circle Punch (161354) to capture this little image

of the sweet little bird. I love the soft look of the Basic White background that has been embossed using the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder (161473). A layer of Vellum Cardstock (101856) and vegetation from the Delicate Forest Dies (162679) done in Garden Green and Soft Sea Foam pull the colors out of the Designer Series Paper onto the card front. And of course a bit of Gold & Silver 1/8″ Trim Combo Pack (Online Exclusive 161633) adds a bit of shine. And how about this next card that uses the same sheet of images along with two more patterns to create this lovely card?

I just love the way the paper works together pulling out the colors from the floral sheet. And for this card the sentiment from the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set (162882) has been punched out with it’s coordinating punch. (Remember if one of our items in a bundle is on back order you can order the items individually for now.). A bit of our Linen Thread (104199) adds some texture. And speaking of texture, you’re going to love our 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim (161637) used for this next card.

Simple strips of 1″ Designer Series Paper create the background for this lovely sentiment from the Go To Greetings Stamp set (158763) that has been cut out using our Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) and layered on our Boho Blue. This card is a wonderful way to use scraps up.

Like the paper as much as I do? If so you’ll want to get yours before Sale-a-bration ends or it’s gone.

Doggone Friendly

Do you love dogs? I know I do. I can’t remember a time that a dog wasn’t apart of our family someone we loved. From my first little pup at age 4 to our two current little babies, dogs hold a special place in my heart. So when I saw the Doggone Friendly Stamp (162729) I knew it would be part of my shopping list.

Today I’m going to share some fun cards from my swap that use this stamp in different ways. I like the fact that this stamp has it all and we can highlight one or all of our sweet faces! This first card does just that.

The card front was stamped in Pebbled Path and then circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) was used to cut out the image desired. The pup has been colored and highlighted and then layered onto a larger circle of Misty Moonlight. This layered shape covers the hole that was created. And how about this next card that uses a quick pop of color on their bandanas with our Stampin’ Blends to draw your eye?

The sentiment has been stamped in the fun Tahitian Tide and punched out and layered with the Double Oval Punch (154242) and a bit of shine has been added with the Tahitian Tide 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon (159197).

And this last card is a fun fold

It uses not only the stamp set but our More Dazzle Specialty Paper (161749), Natural 1/4″ Wavy Trim (161517), and Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper (161503) to create tons of texture. Open it and you’ve got two additional panels with those adorable little faces.

This stamped image was stamped Pecan Pie once and then cut into three sections at 1 1/2″, 2 1/8″ to decorate the panels. So simple but it packs a wow in shades of brown.

Three cards, three totally different looks! It’s one of my favorite things about paper crafting, while we start with the same supplies we can create a project that is our.

On a personal note I thought I’d share a quick pic of my pups. Kona and Hana who are now 21 weeks old and just got their first grooming.

We named them after two towns we were able to visit on vacation recently. They are such sweet little faces, don’t you think? Why not leave me a comment and tell me what kind of pup you have?

It’s summer and that means travel and seeing new things. The Next Destination stamp set (161427) celebrates that and more.

Filled with wonderful images of travel and sentiments that not only celebrate a trip but also new beginnings like graduation and retirement. Check out this lovely card that uses “punch art” to create an airplane.

I love the way the Iridescent Pastel Gems (160429) have been used along with the Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) for the little plane and Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317) adds a bit of texture to the background after stamping the image in Memento Tuxedo Black (132708/133456). The little “ticket” shape that has been used for the sentiment is from the Cheerful Daisies Dies (161296).

Easter Bunny fun

Wow, it’s Wednesday already and I haven’t had a chance to share with you yet this week. I’m been a bit side tracked with the new grand-pup my son has brought home. Poor thing had been locked up in a chicken coop the past month for getting in the trash. I don’t see how you could do that to a pup, why she is the sweetest little thing but has needed a lot of reassurance after being shuffled around from home to home so much.

Any how on to sharing. Spring is definitely in the air here in North Georgia we’ve been in the 60s and 70s the past couple of weeks and things are turning green quickly. The itchy and watery eyes are proof that spring has sprung! Which of course makes me think of Easter which is right around the corner so today I thought I’d share a few swaps with you that uses the Easter Bunny stamp set.

This set has a coordinating punch also but it is not orderable right now since we’ve run out. But great news it will be back, so you can go ahead and get the stamp now to create with and do a bit of fussy cutting and then get the punch when it returns.

The first card I’ll be sharing with you today uses simple stamping and adds texture with our dies.

The Stylish Shape Dies (159183) were used to cut out the Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper (Host 159161) and bunny and the background was created with the Stitched Greenery Die (155451). Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots (159082) add a bit more texture to the project and brings out the color of the bunny and sentiment. This next friendship card creates a scene

The Cloud Punch (157749) was used to highlight the sentiment. And finally this last card uses the Scalloped Contour Dies (155560) and the soft Country Gingham Designer Series Paper (160388) to create the soft colors of spring.

So what do you think? Can you see all the possibilities with this fun spring set? Why not check it out and get started creating your Easter products now?

Soft Seedlings

The evenings are getting cooler and it won’t be long before the days are noticeably shorter, fall is right around the corner. While I’ll miss the pace summer and it’s warm sunny days I always enjoy, today’s project is inspired by those fall colors we’ll be seeing soon.

The Soft Seedlings stamp set (159905) from our Mini Catalog was used to create this lovely card.

This set with it’s lovely font and sentiments is perfect for techniques with its Distinktive images.

For this card a bit of color has been added to the stem with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker and then Cajun Craze has been added to the leaves and seeds using a Sponge Dauber. After that another Sponge Dauber added a bit of Early Espresso to the tips for a bit more color giving it an Autumn feel. Our Layering Diorama Dies (155565) were used to layer the image and the Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) with their fun stitched edges were used to pop up the sentiment. Interest was added to the background layer with the seeding images and a bit more sponging to add a bit of interest.

So what do you think? Do the colors used for this card evoke the feel of fall to you?
