Thinking of You

Today at Stampin' Royalty we bring you a sketch challenge.   I decided to pull out the retiring hostess set Time of Year stamp set.   I just love the font, the banners.   There is still time to put together a 150$ ordet.   Stock up on supplies,  get your retiring favorites before they are gone and ask a friendor two to place an order with you. 

I am also sorry to see the Pop of Pink Designer series paper is retiring.  It has been one of my all time favorites.   The roses come a retired hostess set called Floral Wings.

Oh the places you will go

As soon as I saw the Places You'll Go stamp set in the Idea Book & Catalog, I just knew I needed to get.   It is one of my favorites and perfect for graduation cards.   The banner came together with Birthday Bright stamp set and words from the Thouhtful Banners stamp set.  How great is it that words fit so perfectly inside the banner.   The background for the globe was put together with ank ink refill and an aqua painter.    I was so happy I still had some Sent with Love designer series paper leftover.   It was just perfect for this card.  

Congrats Graduate

This has to be one of the easiest cards I have ever made.  The beautiful Double Take sentiments make this card.    I was so happy to find that the Sunshine Sayings has the graduate sentiment.       A stamped graduation hat, a strip of paper and Baker's Twine and the card is complete.

All God's Grace

It is communion and confirmation season.     All God's Grace is perfect set for your religious cards.    Here are a set of cards ready to go perfect for boys and girls.

For the bride & groom

As you can see I am loving this square sketch.   It is just perfect for grouping small images.    Here I used it with the beautiful Falling for you stamp set in the Occasions Mini.   Love the sentiments and the beautiful images in this set.

Stampin' Royalty Color Challenge

How much do you love this sketch.    I already have ideas for future cards running in my head.     I pulled out the retired Making Spirits Bright for the card.   Love the glass with the candle.     Stitched Shapes is the perfect die for this card sketch.

What is even more perfect is the color challenge suppled by my wonderful Stampin' Royalty design team.    How great are Watermelon Wonder, Wild Wasabi,  Always Artichoke and So Saffron together.

Princess Birthday Cards

To complete my birthday card stash, I decided to make some princess birthday cards to have on hand when my niece has to go to birthday parties.     I love the pink pirouette and pool party color combination.      I love how the birthday sentiment from the Avant Garden stamp set fit perfectly inside my Fiskars cloud punch.     Most of the products are not SU but I had a lot fun pulling out my scrapbooking goodies to make this fun birthday card.

Thank you cards

I am a words girl.  One of the least likely stamp sets you will less likely to see me sell off are my words sets.  You can't make a card without them. Prime example ia this card.   Also big words are just perfect for scrapbook pages. 

I love the Double Take stamp set.   How great two step with words.   So very much stamp set that I earned during Sale-a-bration finish off the sentiment.     Love the masculine designer series paper in the Occasions Mini, Urban Underground.   I paired it up with the Festive Birthday.    Sequins, Baker's Twine, Rhinestones and White perfect accents colored with a Sharpie are the finishing touches on these thank you cards going out to customers for their orders.

Celebrate with Balloons

Do you need a stash of birthday cards.   I was trying to figure out a design that would be great to anyone, boys, girls, men and women.   Balloons seem to be the only thing that would work for anyone.   So using the Birthday Bright stamp set here is my birthday card.    

The background was done with my aqua painter and watercolor paper.   The images were stamped and then paper pierced.   The colors used were Soft Sky, Pistachio Pudding and Lost Lagoon.  

Thank you Case this Sketch for the Inspiration.

Quick and Easy Bunny Tags

You gotta love Costco.  I picked up these Easter themed fruit snacks.  I figured I  could stuff some Easter eggs with these treats for the egg hunt.  I guess I wasnt paying attention but I dont think the kids would like it if I used them all up.   All the eggs would just have these fruit snacks.   There is 160 of them!!! 

 I decide to take some of them and put them inside treat bags and put cute tags on them and send them in with  my niece and nephew to give to their friends at school.  

They are super easy.  Die cut bunnies, punch circles,  use the Crop-a-dile to punch the whole and you are done.

Thank you The Paper Players for the Easter Bunny inspiration.

Happy Daisies

My aqua painter was out again to create a background for my daisy die cut card.    I am a huge fan of daisies.   I love these happy flowers.    What says spring more than my happy flower the daisy.   Thank you As You See It for this fun challenge.   

I love my fun new Spellbinders dies I picked up this weekend that were marked down as well.  Score crafting find.    Love the happy sentiment and my daisy die.  The words come from the Crazy for You stamp set. 

Spencer's Set

Here is another new great set from the Project Bin, Spencer's Set.   It is for autism awareness.    A portion of all the sales will go to Autism Research Institute.    So many great sentiments. You will find yourself pulling this set out time and time again.    What is better than crafting for a good cause.   

Furry Friends Cards

The Project Bin has two great new stamps two great stamps for the furry friends in our lives, Kinda Pawsome and Feline Good.    This is the perfect sets to make cards for dog and cat lovers.    

I had a little fun this weekend using my watercolor paper, aqua painters and ink refills.   With just those three simple items you can make quick but beautiful backgrounds like on my Feline Good card.   

Both cards I used designer paper from my paper stash from TPC Studio.

I drew inspiration for these cards from this week's Freshly Made Sketch of the week.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!   Hope the day brings you a little bit of the luck of the Irish.  If not here is my lucky charm card you can make and send to the people who you are lucky to have in your life.    Love this sentiment from Mama Elephant.   The clover comes from the retired Got Treats stamp set.    

I decided to play along with The Paper Players color challenge, green and white.  I decided to go with Gumball Green and Pear Pizzazz with some Emerald Envy enamel dots.
