Everything Eleanor for Stamping & Blogging

Hi Everyone!

Welcome back!! It’s always so nice to see you here.

My share today is from a sketch from Stamping and Blogging I hope you like it!The sketch and them my design. Smile



everything eleanor for s&B

I haven’t done a card like this in awhile…kind of a bit more detail and old fashiony (is that a word)? lol

  • The card base is Black and cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2
  • I have a plain white mat that I stamped the Fleur on in Black
  • I added a small piece of the Back to Black DSP to the bottom after coloring in the teardrops with my green marker in Wild Wasabi. The mate measures 1 3/4 x 4
  • I attached it to the white mat and then did a double bow with my trusty bow maker (for sale at top of my blog. I secured the ends of the ribbon in the back with tape…
  • I then adhered the mat to the black card front. .
  • I stamped the green piece in Wild Wasabi and cut out, attached with dimensionals.
  • Then stamped the flowers with Black Stazon and colored with my Perfect Plum re-inker and and cut out. The center of the flowers was done with Daffodil Delight.
  • Pop those pretty little flowers on there and you are good to go.

Don’t forget the envelope liner….doesn’t it just make it so much prettier when they match like this?

Have you visited What Will You Stamp Blog yet? If not please check it out. Some awesome projects done there every week with the same set. So lot of ideas.

So here is my take on this cute set…’s a tri-fold card with matching envelope. FullSizeRender

Card partially open and then open….see the cuteness going on? lol

So far we have raised over $22, 000!! Isn’t it remarkable what we can do together? Please help if you can.

Today’s card is a little “Thank You” that I created using the “For the Bird” Set from Stampin’ Up! Paired it with some Sweet Taffy Designer Paper and decided I like it. I did a matching Envelope to go with it. I love that touch of color peeking out of the envelope…don’t you?

An Open Heart with Stamping and Blogging

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to another week of Stamping and Blogging. This week we had a simple little sketch that I love…hope you do too.

I decided almost immediately that “An Open Heart” would fit this sketch just perfectly. So here is my rendition.

sketch 100

….here is the sketch.

SB 100 Apr 15

This is a single layer card using Confetti White Card Stock. It really is a lovely paper and has a beautiful texture to it. I did add some specks of my own using my Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set to give it a little more effect. I then stamped the Branch and gave it blue berries….seemed to fit. I used my stamp pads and Blender Pens to color as well as my Aqua Painter around the branch in light blue. Don’t forget you have to use Stazon if you use water….

The little bird was colored the same way blending some of the colors.

The sentiment is perfect for the way I feel this week. Blue is the color for Autism and after my Autism Event and the way my fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators pulled together hosting events all over the country to help…..  makes my heart so happy and so full. I have tons to say about it but it will keep until this weekend.

Would you like to create this card? Here are the things I used.

Supplies needed:

and don’t forget the weekly specials too. Kinda fun!
