Bee Thankful

20190518_153946.jpg

This was done using the Bee Thankful stamp set.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxcedo Black ink and than colored it in using Night of Navy Stampin Blends taking turns using the light and dark for every other letter.  Next I colored in the bee using Pineapple punch Stampin Blends as well as Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends for the leaves.  I used the retired 6×6 Neutral pack of dsp paper in Night of Navy as I made these before the paper retired.  I also used the Night of Navy Stampin Blends to color the clear rhinestones to match the card.

Supplies used:

Graduation Card

Sarah wmHope you had a good Saturday. Just got back from a beautiful wedding of two people who are truly made for each other.

I have enclosed a card that I made for a special friend’s daughter who graduated this year. I used some new Stampin’ Up products and some previous products. I used a new framelet to make the name with.  It is the Layering Alphabet Edgelits which also come in a bundle with the Lined Alphabet stamp set.  The colors I used were Real Red and Night of Navy cardstock that was put on a Whisper White base card.  The flower unfortunately is not a SU product as the majority of my punches are still packed in the POD till we get our house all put back together.

Remember you can always shop online with me by clicking on the SU Catalog which will take you to my shopping page or by clicking on designsbypennynelson.com

Hi My Friends,

I have been off the radar for a few months as I have had some personal issues to take care of.  In the last of February I got a bad case of Acute Asthmatic Bronchitis.  I would just get it cleared up and then it would come back.  I could not get rid of it.  They did chest x-rays to be sure I didn’t have a hidden pneumonia which thankfully they were able to rule out.  Finally in mid April the Dr. said that they had tried different antibiotics, I was doing a home breathing treatment at least 3 times a day and nothing was clearing it up.  So, he said I needed to get out of the house for a good two weeks if I could, so I moved in with my daughter.  Within about three days I cleared right up and it didn’t come back.  So, that let us know there was something in the house that kept aggravating my asthma!  A few days after that the hot water heater leaked and we had a lot of water in our computer room on the side closest to the garage.  So to make a long story short we are replacing all our carpet in the house and putting down laminate throughout and porcelain tile in the bathrooms and master closet off the bathroom.  My stay for two weeks has gone into a few more weeks as you can see!  I did keep out some of my Stampin’ Up supplies so I could make cards and work on craft fair items!

The card that I made for my sweet friend who retired from 37 years of teaching last week is made with retiring products except for the Basket Weave embossing folder which is being carried over after being a Sale-a-bration item this year.

So, on to the directions for the card.  Using Whisper White cs cut it 5 1/2 ” x 8 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″  .  Then run the front part of the card through the embossing folder  Basket Weave.  Next, stamp the basket  from Blossoming Basket on your Whisper White cs measuring 3 1/2″x 3 1/2″ using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Then using Berry Burst ink for the flowers, Old Olive ink for the leaves and Crumb Cake ink for the basket and handle. Now put some ink in the lid of the stamp pads and use the blender pen to add color to the basket and flowers shading as you go along.  Adhere it to your Old Olive cs measuring 3 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ using Stampin’ Up Snail tape runner.  Now build the narrow strip of Petal Garden dsp measuring 4″ x 2″ to the old olive paper measuring 4 1/8″ x 2 1/8″ using Snail.  Next, using Snail put the 4 1/8″ paper to the left side of the embossed front of the card.  Then using a Stampin’ dimensional at each corner adhere to the top of the card.  Using a new stamp that will be coming out stamp it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out with the retiring smallest size from Lots of Labels.  Adhere it using mini glue dots and then using linen thread make a small bow and adhere it on top of the sentiment using a mini glue dot.

Eastern Palace #4

DSC_1672wm

Today I am going to be explaining how to do the card on the bottom far right.  I just love this stamp set Eastern Beauty!  The measurements are 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. The Tranquil Tide piece of cs is 5 1/4″ x 4″. the Whisper White piece that I did the stamping on measures 5″ x 3 3/4″.  First, I stamped the big circle in Lemon Lime Twist  and built the card around it.  Next using Tranquil Tide I stamped the first flower image to the left of the circle.  Next, I stamped the flower to the bottom of the middle stamping off the paper. From there I continued building towards the top left corner.  I then came in with Lemon Lime Twist and using the spritzing looking stamp I went around the whole flower over lapping each petal as I did this.  I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide Ink in the big circle.  I adhered the Whisper White layer to the Tranquil Tide layer and then adhered them to the Whisper White card base.  I completed the card by using a circle from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and put it in the middle of each flower.  This was a very easy card to make 🙂

Eastern Palace Suite

I’m back from Kansas City!!  I had a wonderful time soaking up the Holy Spirit in the International House of Prayer KC, otherwise known as IHOPKC Prayer Room.  I enjoyed my time with my younger daughter Amy and her friends and going to her school to help her get her room ready for the new school year!!

My next few blog posts will be the cards I did in my Eastern Palace class.

DSC_1672wm

I did 3 of the ones Stampin’ Up put out for us to use for a class.  I love this Suite of stamps, thinlits, and embellishments! This Suite can be found on pages 18 – 19 in the Annual Catalog.

Today’s card will be the top left one. It uses the new Tranquil Tide cs for the base and also the Designer Series paper which is cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ being careful the wave pattern faces the right way.  The Very Vanilla piece is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. You then run it through your big shot putting the thinlit close to the left side of the paper. You will use the large circle thinlit.  Next you will use a stamp from the Eastern Beauty set.  Using Lemon Lime Twist ink you will use the small circle and stamp a few times on the Very Vanilla piece.  Then using Tranquil Tide Ink you will stamp the sentiment “let’s be friends forever”, the swirly “s” at the bottom, and then the three little leave clusters and stamp in between the wishbone shapes. You then adhere it on the card using snail (tape runner).  Next you will cut the flower out using a 3″x 3″ square of Fresh Fig cs, where you will need to use both of the star thinlits, fitting the smaller one into the larger one and running it through the big shot.  Then use a circle from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and put it in the center of the flower.  Adhere the flower using a Stampin’ Dimensional.
