Happy New Years & Best Wishes To All!

 

Today begins a fresh chapter in our lives. A New Year and hopefully one filled with love, creativity, and a great amount of healing for our country. I am also starting a new chapter of my life by offering online classes. My first class will debut NEXT WEEK so make sure to sign up to receiving email updates so you do not miss that big announcement. I am also going to begin each month off with a hostess code. A hostess code allows me to earn a small amount of Stampin’ Rewards. This does not cost you anything so not to worry. It just allows me to earn a little extra to help cover the cost of paper or embellishments. If your order is over $150 please do not use the hostess code as you will qualify yourself for the Stampin’ Rewards.

JAN 2021 Hostess Code IS: UQZ6PQ7M

Now for today’s project. It is a card that just kind of fell together. A happy accident I guess you can say. I am using the BRAND NEW Fine Art Floral Designer series paper. That along with some Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla card stocks and the Stitched so Sweetly Die set (A Must Have). Lets take a look….

The frame was made from an embossed ( Painted Texture 3D embossing folder) piece of Very Vanilla card stock and is elevated using lots of Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a beautiful raised look.

As you can see above, it does not take much else to give this card it’s beauty. I have simply added a sponged foliage leaves from the “A Touch of ink” FREE Sale A Bration item. This double stamp set will be FREE with a $100 during Sale A Bration which begins January 5th So check back then for the kick off of this amazing 2 month Sale!!!!

Last but not least….ohhhh my goodnesssssss are these little Ladybug Trinkets not the most adorable thing ever? QUICK TIP: they hook perfectly to your project with one mini glue dot so make sure to add those to your order if you don’t already have them. These are going to be available in the NEW Spring Mini Catalog which also kicks off January 5th. If you have not received a copy of the two new catalogs please email me at melaniestamps@yahoo.com with your name and address. I will send one out to you ASAP!

As always thank you for stopping by. I am so excited about the upcoming two months. I will have two class offerings, numerous YouTube videos, along with at least 2 posts a week here on my blog. So if you are not already registered I would be honored to serve you. Simply pop your email into the sidebar of the website here. Thank you so much for your support and Happy 2021 my friends!!!!!!

2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Card Sketch, Sketch

Wednesday Sketch ~ Ornate Gardens Suite

Today we are going to focus, not only on a sketch, but also on creating Fall themed cards. The Ornate Garden Suite by Stampin’ Up! was perfect for this theme. I immediately grabbed the Ornate Thanks stamp set because I had not yet used the beautiful bold sentiments from this set so this was perfect for these designs. Lets take a look at the suite.

 

 

I have created two cards using this sketch. Both a horizontal and a vertical design. The papers from the Plaid Tidings 6×6″ pad are really striking with bold colors for both fall and winter and beyond.

 

 

 

For the first card below I have used the Ornate Style Stamp set for the sweet little flower stamp and I have colored them with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. The “Thank You” stamp is from the coordinating stamp set titled “Ornate Thanks” in this suite of products. This suite includes BOTH stamp sets along with other coordinating items. CLICK HERE to see the entire suite.

 

Both samples also use the Stitched so Sweetly Die set.  If you have not see the Ornate Layers Dies which are part of the Suite you will want to check those out because they are beautiful and are part of a bundle with the stamp set if your not wanting to get the entire suite. See all the options below.

For the second sample I have added in the Shaded Spruce trees from the In The Pines Stamp set. along with the Stitched Shapes Die set
