Summer Mini – A Little Bit Of Magic & Elements Of Style

I used a stamp set A Little Bit Of Magic from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog.

A Little Bit Of Magic


Summer Mini Catalog #120033
















 Cardstock used is crushed curry, lavender lace, old olive and  naturals white .

The image was colored with  Stampin’ Up Classic inks, in the same colors as the cardstock. Using the aqua painter .

 I distressed the edges of the two layers using the Stampin’ Up! cutter kit.

And the background was embossed with the Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder – Flowers

The next card didn’t turn out so well. I tried something different . I used the top note die to make this card. Attaching two of the die cuts using glossy white paper. I used the brayer on the tope note die with Bashful blue and Always artichoke classic ink. Right away after I did that. I used my spray bottle and spritzed some water onto the top note. Using the flowers from the Elements Of Style stamp set. I stamped the image and colored it in with the aqua painter. Using Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery and Rose red.

Driving By To Say Hi!

Thanks to Patti I was able to play with one of her cartridges. I made her a card with it. and sent it to her when I returned her cartridge. Thanks Patti!! I think that car is  so cute . I saw a few  examples of them on the  internet. Where they had put the car onto a card front I wish I could remember just where this one card in particular was . Oh . .  it was gorgeous…If I find it again I’ll post the link.  But I just had to take it one more step and make mine into a   shaped card.

I used some Stampin’ Up! paper that was retired quite a long time ago…. I had been saving it for something special. I think it worked perfectly with that car. Hopefully Patti likes what I came up with using her Mickey and Friends cartridge.

Yesterday was a leaf raking day. Yes. It’s that time of year . . Even in South Carolina However. It was 80 degrees and we have roses in bloom.  So pretty. Anyway, When I came in I decided to pull out the Walk In My Garden Cricut Cartridge and fill a vase with flowers.

I used Deja Views paper for the first layer of the vase and Stampin Up Chocolate Chip Cardstock for the base of the card. For the flowers I used Stampin Up Whisper White, So Saffron, Riding Hood Red, Groovy Guava, Almost Amethyst, Old Olive and some other scrap green. and glitter.

Thank You/ Friendship Card

This was all I was able to make today and I have a mile long list of cards I need to make.

I used the Upsy Daisy ( Stampin Up ) rubber stamps and Some Whisper White as well as Bravo Burgundy cardstock ( as for the design paper not sure who it is made by. It was in my scrap bin ) I used the Bravo Burgundy Ink Pad and the Old Olive Stampin’ Write marker. I applied the Bravo Burgundy to the flowers with The Aqua painter. And I added glitter. I love glitter. I stamped the flowers on a circle I cut from The Cricut George Cartridge.
