13-in-one-derful (redone) Card 13

13-in-one-derful (redone) Card 13

Finally, here is the last in my series, 13-in-one-derful (redone) Card 13. To mix it up I decided to revise the card size so the three main pieces would fit on the card base.  I also made the Elegant Eggplant rectangle fit the open space.  [Yes, my Type-A flag flying high. Lol!)  Then to give a bit of texture I used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

For the sentiments I made a point to use only the sentiments included in the stamp set.  I was very happy with all the variations I came up with.  If you went even further and cut it word individually the possibilities open up even more.

You can check out my previous 13-in-one-derful Card 13 here or you can download the cutting layout here.

I hope you have enjoyed this redone one sheet wonder series and may be inspired to create your own.

13-in-one-derful (redone) Cards 9-12

13-in-one-derful (redone) Cards 9-12

Here is my next set of 4 cards from my 13-in-one-derful (redone) Cards 9-12 group. I put these on an Elegant Eggplant base to mix up the designs even more. I found it very striking. My excitement continued that the previous color palette worked perfectly.  Adding the adorable bunny makes these uber cute and easy to cut with the Basket Builder Framelits.  [Giggle]

A couple years ago I created my original 13-in-one-derful bundle of designs using the “Best of” Flowers stamp set.  [You can see cards #9-12 here.]  I used the Hydrangea stamp to create my own Designer Series Paper.  This time I was playing with the “Basket Bunch” stamp set and created a page full of mini-eggs.

To add more texture I used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on several of the Pear Pizzazz pieces.  Also adding basic black framing layers can make your designs feel “framed” and add that finishing touch.

If you haven’t tried Wink of Stella you HAVE TO!  After coloring the eggs I felt they needed a bit of shine.  So I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the colored areas.  Amazing!  Oh….to add a touch of shine to the upper left card I clear embossed the 1/8″ narrow Basic Black strip.  It added just the perfect amount of shine and replaces the ribbon I used on the previous version.  Sweet!

It was very nerve racking for me to start cutting the pieces, but I braved it and just LOVE how these turned out.  You can download the cutting layout here.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend and happy stamping!

13-in-one-derful (redone 5 cards)

Have you ever started playing with a stamp and come up with something completely different then you originally envisioned?  Well I sure did, again!  Here are the next set of 4 cards in my 13-in-one-derful “redone” group.  I was excited that my previous color palette worked perfectly. Using Pear Pizzazz for the bases is a great way to give different looks.  I had fun mixing and matching different images from the “Basket Bunch” stamp set along with the super cute “Basket, Eggs and Grass” from the Basket Builder Framelits.

A couple years ago I created my original 13-in-one-derful bundle of designs using the “Best of” Flowers stamp set.  [You can see cards #5-8 here.]  I used the Hydrangea stamp to create my own Designer Series Paper.  This time I was playing with the “Basket Bunch” stamp set and created a page full of mini-eggs.  I tried to eyeball it but my type-A got the best of me.  Lol!  So……I lined up my foam pad using the grid paper, then lined the acrylic block with the edge and stamped.  It made it very easy to line up the stamped images.  Yay!  You might be thinking “how did I mix up the eggs”?  Well……I started on the left, stamping all the way across, then each following row I offset two eggs.  Violia!

13-in-one-derful (redone – 1-4 Cards)

Have you ever started playing with a stamp and come up with something completely different then you originally envisioned?  Well I sure did, again!  Recently I have noticed a resurgence of interest in my original 13-in-one-derful cutting layout and designs.  So I enjoyed revisiting this again but creating updated versions.

A couple years ago I created my original 13-in-one-derful bundle of designs using the “Best of” Flowers stamp set.  [You can see cards #1-4 here.]  I used the Hydrangea stamp to create my own Designer Series Paper.  This time I was playing with the “Basket Bunch” stamp set and created a page full of mini-eggs.  After stamping seriously I pulled up my Big Girl pants and colored three of the five eggs.  YES!  I colored that many eggs.  AND I then went back over the coloring and brushed with Clear Wink of Stella.

After all the coloring and Wink of Stella I was very nervous about cutting up the “designer series paper” but cut it apart I did.  You can download the cutting layout here.  Then I went to work and and recreated the 1-4 designs.  I really wanted to use only the words from the same stamp set and I very happy with the variety I was able to come up with.  I also added a few additional elements to pull more of the egg element together.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you are inspired to revisit some of your previous creations.  I also hope you have a great Friday and weekend!

Thoughtful Branches ~ Four Seasons

thoughtful-branches-4-seasons-736pxl

This limited time only bundle Thoughtful Branches was truly an inspiration all on its own.  I started with the Side-Step Apple Trees design, then having the ring of leaves left on my work table I just couldn’t bring myself to recycle it.  So, after several days I had my “A-ha” moment and saw it as a wreath.  Sweet!  After creating the “Summer” and “Christmas” design I said “well heck I might as well make something for Spring and Fall.  After several days of trial and error I rounded out this  fun Four Season set of designs.  I offered a tutorial which included all four designs to my customers when they purchased the bundle.

I enjoy having a great way to be creative and share what I love.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I had designing them.

I have a sparkly Monday!  Thank you for stopping by today.
