A Special Card for ONE

A very special little girl is turning ONE!

Maui Stamper A Little Wild Stampin' Up!

I love this little bear from A Little Wild, and the coordinating thinlits are the icing on the cake!

I had to play with the message, so I used the Labeler Alphabet so that I could create my own message. The 1 is cut from the Large Numbers Framelits with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

Daisy Delights

The Daisy Delights stamp set and punch were SO popular during the demonstrator pre-order (before the Annual Catalog went public) that it seemed to be on perpetual back-order.  That situation is finally straightened out, so I feel safe in sharing this card:

Maui Stamper Daisy Delight

  • Stamps: Daisy Delight, Floral Phrases
  • Color Palette: Whisper White, Fresh Fig, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi
  • Accessories: Daisy Punch, Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon, 3/4″ Circle Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Floral Phrases DSP

Maui Stamper Daisy Delight

The Fine Tip Glue pen is more than adhesive – it gives a great shine – but do it when everything is finished and you can set your project aside to dry. It takes a long time, at least in Hawaii.

This bird’s so nice, I stamped it twice!

I created a similar layout with different colors HERE. I fussy cut the flowers for this one to add some dimension, but skipped the Bakers twine. I colored these with the Watercolor Pencils too.

Good news! DIY Easel calendar kits are available for 2018!

Just Breathe

Sometimes we all need a reminder to breathe.

Sponging the color on the Glossy card stock is unexpectedly therapeutic.  It’s a slow, building process (at least the way I didi it).  Kind of like breathing.

Pink Tulips

When you find something that makes you happy, I recommend you do it again!

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Tranquil Tulips Host stamps

The Stampin’ Sponges are crucial to the look of this card. They add color and dimension to the impression left by the TIEF, but the color can be kept soft or intensified depending on individual preference.

A sticky note about 1 1/2″ from the bottom of the card creates a clean break and a place to sign the card on the inside.

This is almost the same as the card posted HERE. I changed the primary colors and not much else. I’m pretty pleased with this layout – ideally, the banner on the front would be left blank so that the card could be customized to any occasion.

Happy Bird-day

I love birds. I love to hear them at the beginning and the end of the day, rustling in the trees and calling out to each other.  I love to watch them on my walks and in my gardens, searching for tasty bits and strutting across the lawn. Shouldn’t be a huge surprise to learn that the Feathery Friends Host set was at the top of my list for the 2017-2018 Annual catalog.

Maui Stampers Feathery Friends Host set

I had a fabulous time with the Watercolor Pencils and the Aqua Painter. Coloring is really relaxing for me.

I used the Pokey Doodle to make holes to thread the Bakers Twine. I REALLY don’t like it when bows fall off.  Sometimes I’m lazy and use a Glue Dot, but threading the twine through the holes guarantees that bow will Stay Put.

You know, there just aren’t that many things that are guaranteed any more, and I like knowing my bow is going to stay on the card.

Jars of Love meet Colorful Season

What a perfect match! These graceful branches from Colorful Season belong in this jar. With such a clean, simple image, I decided to leave the sentiment off the front of the card and put it on the inside. This has the added benefit of allowing me to put this card into my Need-A-Card-Now stash, ready for last minute addition of the message of the day.

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Jars meet Colorful Season

The Colorful Seasons Suite is a beautiful combination of stamps, thinlits and the Color Theory DSP stack. If you’re shopping for the stamps, don’t miss the bundle that includes the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

There’s just one little trick to this project.  I stamped the “water” directly on the front panel, but stamped the jar in Basic Black on Vellum cardstock.  (It’s best to do this step early in the process to allow plenty of time for the ink to dry thoroughly – I did mine the day before.) Cut out the jar stamped on the vellum with the framelits and attach it with a few dabs of Fast Fuse around the perimeter for an authentic look.

Stay tuned – there’s another version of this card in the works!
