Sky with a Swirl – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0025

Sky with a Swirl Card created by Michelle Zindorf using Stampin’ Up! Products, see lots more stamping projects here zindorf.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com

Hello there,

My card scene today has a lot of depth to it and a fun little sky with a faint swirl in it.  The swirl can be made more prominent by using darker colors.  I wanted mine to fade out towards the horizon so I kept my colors pretty soft.

I created the swirls by masking with a new diecut from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies Set, Item 141497.

I also used the plastic Wrap technique in the sky area.  I love the broken up look that it gives and it’s really hard to make a mistake with the technique.

Positive and Negative – Stampin’ Up! Cards

DSC_0016  DSC_0022

Hello there,

Today I created two quick cards using the negative and the positive of one of the new Dies in the Flourish Thinlits Set, #141478.  This flourish die is really beautiful.

I left these cards without a sentiment and lots of space to add one until I have an occasion to send them.  Do you do that?  Or do you make your cards as the occasion arrises?

You Light Up My Life – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0023

Hello there,

I have a bright idea for my project today, har har har, lol.

With the new catalog Stampin’ Up! released we also have new exclusive hostess stamp sets that you can get with your hostess credits when you place a $150 order or more.  You don’t have to host a workshop in order to get the hostess stamp sets.  They are all spectacular this year, I want every one of them!

Today I used the hostess stamp set Pun Intended. Super fun images in this set with lots of versatile sentiments included.

Boots Reflection – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0030

I think someone is dipping their toes in the water.  :)

I haven’t created a reflection card in a while and I thought these boots from the new Stampin’ Up! Country Livin’ stamp set would be a perfect subject for the technique.  Turned out I was right, they look great at the edge of the water.

Keep your eyes pealed for specials on fruit at your local grocery store.

DSC_0002

Does your grocery have a bargain bin in the produce department?  Do you see great deals on fruit but just don’t know what to do with it?  Yesterday I was in our little local grocery store and I always check out the bargain bin, it was a gold mine of strawberries.  Bargain bin fruit is fruit that is on the verge of being too ripe but not quite there yet.  I purchased 10 lbs of strawberries for $6.  That is quite the deal.  I took those berries and made 4 pints of strawberry jam and 7 quarts of strawberry pie filling when I got home from the store.  Not a bad $6 investment, right?   Just remember, when you buy up those bargain bin fruits be sure you can drop everything and get them canned or frozen right away, that’s why they  were in the bargain bin, they can’t hang around in your frig.

Those jars of strawberry goodness will be quite welcome in the dead of winter, mmmm.

Artistically Asian – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0028

Hello there,

I put the first bit of ink on my new stamp set, Artistically Asian today.  Another wonderful stamp set that has some very useful sentiments in it and nice calming images.

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 1.51.02 PM copy

This stamp set’s images look very nice as silhouettes, which I love to use in scenes, so dramatic!  Also, so easy, since you don’t have to worry about coloring the images, rock!  That is just how I used one of the images today in my project.  I hope you like it and find yourself inspired to get inky today.

On another note. . . . . .

I recently had a jam session, lol.  Not musically, but by really making and canning jam.  I love to make jam this time of year when the cherries and berries are in abundance.  For one, it’s great to have your own jam to eat all year and plus, they make great gifts.
DSC_0002
A little reminder, to label your jars easily, punch or die cut 2.5″ circles from card stock and put them under the top ring of your jar lid.  It will fit nicely, the ring holds it on and there will be no label to have to scrub off of your canning jar when you empty that yummy goodness.
DSC_0003
I hand write on my circles, but you can surely use a word processing program and print it out on card stock and then die cut or punch the circles out.  Note, the 2.5″ circle fits perfect for the regular mouth jars, you will need larger circles for wide mouth jars.

May you have one of your best days ever!

 Until my next post. . . . . . 

Huge Hugs!

Best Bird – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0029_edited-1

Hello there,

Oh my!  There is a brand new, must have, bird stamp set.  The Best Birds stamp set has some wonderful images with lots of sentiments that will cover lots of occasions.

Screen Shot 2016-06-11 at 11.26.35 AM copy

It has a coordinating die set, Birds and Blooms Thinlits as well!  I’m looking forward to using some of those dies as silhouettes, can’t wait!  If you decide you too cannot wait to get your hands on these, be sure to bundle the two for savings, with item # 142315.

Screen Shot 2016-06-11 at 11.32.13 AM copy

Now about today’s project, I decided to make my bird a bit of a different color with the yellow and green hues.  To keep it pleasing to the eye I repeated the same colors in the leaves.  Tip:  By repeating colors throughout your scene it helps from letting the colors get two busy, which can be unappealing.  :)
