Your Kindness

Hi Everyone

Do you guys remember that migraine I had the other day. It came back yesterday – yuck, so I am having another day of recuperating from them.

Alrighty on a positive note – today’s card…… Woo Hoo

This card is for Paper Craft Crew Challenge #53.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #53

I do say the card looks much better in person than in the picture. The picture does not do it justice at all. The flowers in the background are stamped in Blushing Bride to match the chevron ribbon. In the picture the flowers look like Calypso Coral to match the card stock,  So in the picture the chevron ribbon looks like it doesn’t match anything and sticks out like a sore thumb. Not only that, the clay flower is painted with Blushing Bride and looks like Calypso Coral in the picture. You guys pop me an email (cynthia.hawkins999@gmail.com) or leave me a comment letting me know if you agree with me about the chevron ribbon and  clay flower. The Pearl Jewels are colored in pink sharpie, then orange sharpie, and again in pink sharpie – I think they look like Calypso  Coral in the picture. You know – they are supposed to look like Calypso Coral. hehe

Just For You and I can’t Thank You Enough

Hi Everyone

 

I have some Stampin’ Up specials for you – woo hoo

Undefined Stamp Carving Kit

During Convention 2013, Stampin’ Up! unveiled an exciting new product called the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit.

That’s right – a stamp carving kit!  It’s “undefined” because you get to carve what YOU want on your stamp or stamps!  You can express your personality, interests, thoughts, and feelings by carving your own stamps.  You’ll really get a “look what I made!” sense of satisfaction!

Here’s a great little video to show you just how easy it is to carve your own stamps:

Here is what is included in the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit, item # 133402, $19.95:

Undefined carving kit

– 2 carving tools, 3″ x 4″ rubber, 3″ x 4″ foam, 4 wood blocks (various sizes), Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker, 3 postcards, instructions, and stamp image templates (in case you can’t think of anything on your own!)

We know you’ll have lots of ideas for making your own special stamps, so we highly recommend you purchase a Undefined Refill Kit at the same time!  It is is item # 134808 and costs $9.95.  Here’s what is included:

Undefined refill kit

– 3″ x 4″ rubber, 3″ x 4″ foam, 4 wood blocks (various sizes), and instructions

If you prefer Clear-Mount stamps or think you might want to carve a bigger stamp than the wood blocks provided, you can purchase our Clear-Mount Cling Foam (item # 124236, $10.95).

Need some ideas of what you can carve?  How about these suggestions:

  • a catch phrase or word you or your family uses all the time
  • a family logo
  • the name of your favorite vacation spot
  • a favorite food or drink
  • a team name or logo
  • your name or a family member’s name or initials
  • high school or college mascot or emblem
  • a stamp representing a favorite activity
  • a blog logo
  • a favorite animal
  • a speech bubble
  • a favorite image from a stamp set that is no longer available
  • a punctuation mark (like a @, !, &, or ?)
  • an image from My Digital Studio
  • a favorite cartoon character
  • a superhero logo
  • a stamp to use for a specific party theme
  • a video game character or logo
  • social media buttons (Like button, Pinterest button, etc.)
  • religious emblems
  • any image you’ve always wanted a stamp of that you haven’t been able to find!

You can see some actual carved images and projects created with them on Stampin’ Up!’s Pinterest page for the Undefined Kit by clicking here.

Woo hoo – Today’s card. I did a new technique on this card. I don’t know if there is a name for it. I inked my brayer and I ran it over the raised side of an embossing folder. I then put my card front in the folder and pressed it and rubbed it and pressed it and rubbed it and the image was then on my card front. I used the Stripes Embossing Folder for this technique and I really like the way it turned out.  Another neat technique I did was with the clay flower. I smushed ( is that even a word?) the flower into the Daffodil Delight ink pad. I then used my aqua painter and painted Melon Mambo in the crevices of the flower to give it a two-tone look. The flower turned out very nice. Have a look. 🙂

Hi Everyone

 

Did everyone have a good weekend and Mother’s Day. Most of my weekend was spent in bed – ugh – another migraine.  I did have a surprise this weekend. My sister sent me some flowers. That was a very nice surprise. I did manage to get up long enough to make her a gift. I made a card using one of the sneak peek stamp sets and matching embossing folder – Wildflower Meadow. Very pretty card if I say so myself.

Hope you enjoy.

 I also made her a gift box with 5 cards and matching envelopes. The cards were made using Serene Silhouettes and each one of the Feel Goods sayings. Each card is in a different color. I used the 2013-2014 In colors for the cards.

Oh, Hello

Hi Everyone

A NEW KIT FROM STAMPIN’ UP. HOW AWESOME IS THAT. WOOT WOOT

BLOOMIN’ BOUQUET PROJECT KIT

 

Springtime is for blooms and blossoms and pretty things–so our new Bloomin’ Bouquet project kit is arriving just in time! Create a beautiful bouquet of flowers for someone special: a friend, a teacher, or your mom. All you need is adhesive!

 

Mother’s Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There’s no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.

As if that weren’t enough, the kit contains a “baker’s dozen”! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn’t normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you’d like to give a little “thank you” to-and introduce them to Stampin’ Up!

Ordering information:

Item 134542 $12.95

Available starting April 29, while supplies last.

Kit contents:

  • 2 sheets of preprinted and precut flowers on 12″ X 12″ cardstock; makes 13 flowers using Pool Party, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Rich Razzleberry
  • 13 Vintage Faceted Buttons
  • 13 green floral wire stems

Adhesive not included. (Glue gun recommended.)

OMG, the flowers are gorgeous. They would look lovely anywhere, home, office, patio, etc.

If you would like to have this kit – just send me an email:  cynthia.hawkins999@gmail.com

Now for today’s card: I like all the layers on this card. The splattered dots really make this card pop. I used the Aqua Painter and put some ink in the top of an ink pad. Filled the Aqua Painter with water – dipped it in the ink and spattered it on the card. Really easy and really stands out. The two little flags that extend under the pinwheel. I used the Clear Mount Block A and stamped it on the stamp pad and stamped it onto the paper.
