This is such a fun set -- there are several different tree bases, along with the coordinating "shadow" stamps.  I can see a lot of uses for this one!!

Here are all the supplies used for this card:


WWYS #79 In the Meadow

Welcome to another week of What Will You Stamp?! This week, we were challenged to use the In the Meadow stamp set.  This is such a pretty set!   I thought of the idea for this card as soon as I looked at the set!  I love how the watercoloring turned out!

Project Sheet Wednesday -- Baby Bear

Babybear1

Measurement:

  • Dapper Denim cardstock: 4 ½” x11”, score at 5 ½”
  • Whisper White cardstock: 4” x 5 ¼”, 3 ¼” square
  • Soft Sky – scrap for punching heart
  • Dapper Denim DSP – 4” x 3”  

 Instructions:

  1. Emboss the Happy Hearts embossing folder onto the large Whisper White panel.
  2. Using the three stamps for the Baby Bear, stamp onto Whisper White square – use a paper piercing mat for best results. Bear images are marked with a number 1,2, and 3 – use the stamps in that order – stamp image 1 with Sahara Sand ink,  stamp image 2 with Crumb Cake ink, and image 3 with Early Espresso.  When I am stamping these images, I line up the bottom of the bear and they seem to line up quite well. 
  3. Stamp “love you” on a scrap of Pool Party cardstock, and punch with Sweetheart punch.
  4. Assemble card – and pop the sweetheart shape with a dimensional.
  5. Use thick white baker’s twine and wrap around card and tie a bow.

No Bones About It!

I've had this stamp set for quite awhile, but have never used it!!  I saw a card online that used the window sheets for the "bones", and thought it was brilliant!!  So, I made my own!!

It's really hard to photograph, so that you can see the window sheet in the oval opening.  Sorry!  But, here's one of the inside:

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (love this challenge!):

Nacho Average Blog Hop -- All about the Men!

This month, the Nachos are featuring all things masculine!!  I used one of new stamps, Thoughtful Banners, for this quick and easy card:

Tammyjune

I only used Dapper Denim ink -- I stamped three stripes each time before re-inking!  I love the effect!  And, the stripes were sooooo easy to stamp because this is a photopolymer set!

Be sure to "hop" through all the stops -- some really GREAT ideas out there!!

I also took my colors from The Paper Players, although I don't have the Dapper Denim, so I substituted Pacific Point:
