ICS Blog Hop Triple Time

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! This month you are in for a BIG treat!! We have an amazing technique as the theme for our blog hop this month! It is called Triple Time and it is SO MUCH FUN!! Not only that, but it’s quite easy and makes a card that really WOW’s the person receiving it. The amazing and very humble Brian King shared his tutorial HERE which is what I used to create the project below.

Once I was able to wrap my head around how this is technique works, I wanted to make about 6 different projects for the Hop. I knew that was not possible so please be sure to check back and see the other ideas that I created as I worked on learning this technique.
I love this Winter Themed Set called Endless Wishes and the more I am using the Photopolymer stamp sets the more I love them. They are easy to use, they provide a crisp, clean image everytime and I am always able to see where I am stampin!
I am a huge fan of blues and silver for both Christmas and Winter so it was easy to decide what colors to use on this card.  Once I decided the colors, it was quick and easy to stamp, assemble and voila! 

Next, take a peek at what Tammy has made for the hop!

We only live once

I have another card for you today using a new stamp set from the current catalog. This set is called Studio Sketches. It is available in wood mount (item #116974) or clear mount (item #122222). The colors for today’s card come from Stampin Addicts weekly Color Challenge. This site is such a great place to find daily inspiration that I encourage you to check it out!

This card could be used for any kind of occasion and sometimes those are so great to have on hand.

Thanks for coming by! I hope that you will leave me a comment so that I know you were here. Have a great week and happy Stampin’!

The card base is the new In Color Peach Parfait. The top panel is the brand new core color Cajun Craze. At first I wasn’t all that excited about this color but the more I used it, the more I am liking it!. I stamped the background stamp Sanded (item #109294) in Cajun Craze on the top panel. For the main image I stamped one of the the images from Studio Sketches on Vanilla card stock and layered that on the new Early Espresso. This has quickly become one of my favorite new core colors! I watercolored the main image using the other colors from the card with my Aqua Painters (item #103954) and then did some direct to paper (DTP) on the edges to give it a little depth. The sentiment is from the set Fifth Avenue Floral (item #113734) which I also added some DTP to the edges. I didn’t have any Peach Parfait ribbon on hand so I improvised and ran colored white grosrain ribbon with my Peach pen and of course, it was a perfect match! This is one of the many reasons I love Stampin’ Up products. Everything matches! I finished this card off with a Library Clip (item #109857).

Because I Care – A New Card

I have been working on new cards using the NEW stamp sets from the current catalog and have one to share with you today!

The images from this card is from the set Because I Care. It is a new level one Hostess Set, which you can earn by hosting your own workshop.
This card uses many of the new In Colors for this year. The base color Blushing Bride. The accent colors are Pear Pizzazz, Concorde Grape and Crumb Cake (formerly known as Kraft). The sketch layout was from the weekly challenge at Stampin Addicts which is a great place to go for daily inspiration.
I wanted to make a simple card to show you, because not all cards should take us long to create. This sketch can easily be adjusted to for any need.
I stamped accents on the Crumb Cake and then roughed up using the Cutter Kit (item # 106958 $16.95). The main image was stamped using the In Color Stampin’ Write Markers (item # 119801 $14.95) with colors Concord Crush for the flower and Pear Pizzazz for the stem. I used a few Dimensionals (item #104430 $3.95)to pop the main image off of the base layers. I then stamped the sentiment directly on the bottom base layer.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a comment to let me know that you were here! I hope that you are having a great week, even if it’s only Monday. Come back soon…I have quite a few cards and projects to show you this week!

Happy Stampin’!

My Prayer Journal

I’ve been wanting to create my own prayer journal for awhile now but considering the condition of my stamp room until just recently that was not going to happen. Now that it is back in good working order I decided tonight would be a great night to do finally work on that project.

The spiral bound journal I picked up at Michael in the dollar bins. You have got to love that place! I used the SU! Spiral Punch on the left side, it fits just perfect on these. I pulled out some left over Enchante Designer Series paper for the background since it has such a soft, pretty look to it. The cross is stamped in Perfect Plum on Vanilla card stock and then cut out. I mounted that on some Mellow Moss card stock and then cut that out for a small layer. This was a huge task for me since I am scissor challenged! I popped the cross up on some dimensionals and then mounted it on Pale Plum card stock that has been lighted stamped with the flowers from Refuge and Strength in Pale Plum and the edges distressed using the cutter tool. The sentiment was printed out on my computer on Vanilla card stock. It was mounted on Mellow Moss and then Pale Plum. I added a few ribbons to the spiral spine but did not want to over do it. I think it could use a few more but I seem to not have any other ribbons in coordinating colors….how can that be?!
I am looking forward to start using my journal during my evening devotional time. I like to read My Daily Bread and talk with God each night before I head off to bed. I’m not a morning person and so I really enjoy ending my day this way.

Thanks for coming by. Happy Stamping!
