{Stamp Simply} Rejoice and Be Glad!


Good morning and happy Thursday!

My attempt at the Mojo Monday sketch this week features a gorgeous set from JustRite called Rejoice and Be Glad.  Isn't that font just lovely??  I used some paper from my Blomma paper pad, but my camera seems to have darkened the colors a little.  The reddish pink in the picture is really quite a bit more pink than it appears!  I had a pack of Simple Stories Cozy Christmas enamel dots that called out to be used.  It's hard to see in the picture, but they are really, really gold and sparkly in real life!

Here's my Stamp Simply shopping list...
Circle and Petite Scalloped Circle Dies

Thanks for stopping by!

{TCP Tuesday} Something to Warm You

** If you are looking for my Gina K Blog Hop cards, just scroll down! **


Hi there!

Today I'm playing with the TCP Tuesday Sketch Challenge and one of the sets I picked up over Christmas... A Cuppa.  Isn't it sweet????  I colored my bear with Spectrum Noir Markers and paper pieced her skirt and the cup of coffee in her hands paws.  The paper is from a pad by Kaisercraft called Pickled Pear.  I just love the warm colors!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

It's Stamp TV Kit day on the blog hop!  AND NorthWoods 2, which is SUCH a great masculine set.  Haven't the projects you've already seen been amazing???

I'm going to start with my Birthday Essentials Stamp TV Kit card.  My patterned paper pack is in the mail, so I pulled out an older pack - Red Carpet - for today's card.


And yes, that focal panel is a tiny bit unstraight.  Sigh.  I didn't notice until it was too late.  So just pretend it was supposed to be tilted, ok??? : )  My card was very easy to put together.  I cut out a white focal panel with my Spellbinders pierced rectangle dies, then stamped the balloons and sentiment in black.  I used the front cover of the paper pack to provide the little bits I used to paper piece the balloons.  Then I matted it with Red Hot cardstock and layered it on a piece of patterned paper from the pack, backed with a piece of Dark Chocolate cardstock.  I wrapped it with red organdy ribbon before attaching it to a white card base.  I really, really like this paper pack.  You might be seeing more of it in the next few weeks.  Maybe for another Blast from the Past in the Stamp TV Kit Addicts group?  We'll have to see!!

My second card features Theresa's NorthWoods 2 set.  SUCH a cool set!


First I stamped the script stamp from Mel's Stately Flowers 9 set in Honey Mustard on a piece of Ivory Cardstock.  Then I stamped the tree and bear from the NorthWoods 2 set in Versamark ink and embossed them in white.  I used a sponge dauber and sponged Warm Cocoa ink around the edges, then inked up my sponge with Honey Mustard and sponged around the tree and the bear.  I attached my ivory piece to a mat of Warm Cocoa, then layered that on a larger piece of Prickly Pear.  I added a piece of ivory organdy ribbon and a Dark Chocolate button tied with twine to anchor my sentiment.  I matted it with Dark Chocolate cardstock and attached it to a card base.  VERY easy but with a WOW factor!  So fun!!

{Gina K Designs Inspiration Hop!} Stately Flowers 9 & KnitWit Diva

Hi everyone!


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Cast and Crew will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Today we are showcasing Melanie's gorgeous new Stately Flowers 9 set and Debbie's cute Knit Wit Diva.


Let's start with Stately Flowers, shall we?  I stamped my flowers with Memento Black ink on Heavy Base Weight White cardstock and then colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.  Then I cut a circle from some Prickly Pear cardstock and centered it over my flowers so they would peek through.  I stamped the flowers again in Prickly Pear ink in the lower right corner and added a little flag anchored with brushed copper brads.  The little "splatters" on the Prickly Pear cardstock were done with my Spectrum Noir marker. 

I did some more tone on tone stamping with Debbie's set, but this time in orange...


I stamped a sentiment from the set onto a die cut and then doodled a border with an orange marker.  Then I stamped the little basket in Memento Black ink and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers.  I popped it up on the smaller die cut, popped that up over another larger die cut that I had stamped with Turquoise Sea and Sweet Mango balls of yarn, and then attached that to my tone on tone layer.  Super simple!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'll see you again tomorrow!!

Happy Birthday to You!!



Hi everyone!

I'm joining in on a very special birthday blog hop today for Sharon Johnson of the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!!  It is so fun to be able to honor her in this way.  She is an AMAZING person (she gets SO much done every day!) and an AMAZING stamper (I love, love, LOVE her work!) and has an AMAZING store, too!!!  I feel so blessed to design for her!  So.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHARON!!

My card today uses two sets from JustRite and a number of Spellbinders Dies.  I started by stamping my orange cardstock with the JustRite background stamp - Dotted Fronds.  I stamped enough cardstock so that I could cut my flower from it as well.  The focal image is a sentiment from the JustRite set - Birthday Wishes for You.  It is stamped on a piece of ivory cardstock cut with one of the Pierced Oval dies which I layered on a Large Scalloped Oval diecut.  The kraft band was cut with two of the Spellbinders ovals nested within each other and run through my diecutting machine.

Here's my Stamp Simply supply list...
JustRite Dotted Fronds
JustRite Birthday Wishes for You
Spellbinders Ovals - Pierced, Large Scallop, Classic Large
Spellbinders Blooms Three
Spellbinders Sprigs
Rhinestones

I'm your last stop on the hop, but be sure to stop by the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store FaceBook page to give Sharon a HAPPY BIRTHDAY greeting and follow us if you aren't already!!  Thanks for hopping!!
