Color Fusers Blog Hop: August Part 2

     Hello everyone! Thanks for joining us for another Color Fusers blog hop! Once again, we're highlighting the colors: Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, and Watermelon Wonder.

Today I've created a birthday card using the stamp set Fresh Fruit (141770). This was a very simple card to make. I know how busy our schedules can be, so easy cards are the way to go! I used the card base, Whisper White cardstock (100730) to stamp my flower image using Cherry Cobbler Ink (126966) and Watermelon Wonder Ink (138323). For the center of the flower and the sentiment I used Smoky Slate Ink (131179). To allow the sentiment to stand out more, I cut a 1 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch strip of  designer paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack (138436). 




I hope you enjoyed seeing this week's card. If you have any questions or you would like to purchase any of the supplies used to make this card, I'd love to earn your business! Please visit my website at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/heatherosborne/.

Please make sure to visit the rest of the demonstrators in the hop as they have some wonderful projects that will be sure to provide some inspiration.

Have a great day!
Heather

Color Fusers Blog Hop: August Part 1



     Hello everyone and welcome to the Color Fuse blog hop! This month, we are focusing on the colors Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, and Watermelon Wonder. These are beautiful colors alone, but together, they are gorgeous.
     I love Pinterest, don't you? I got my inspiration from a picture I found on Pinterest.
     For my card today, I used the stamp set entitled Grateful Bunch (item numbers and a link to my Stampin Up store can be found below the pictures). I stamped the largest flower in Cherry Cobbler and Watermelon Wonder on my A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). I then used a piece of vellum paper, cut at 4 x 5 1/4, as an overlay. On top of the vellum, I cut a strip of Smoky Slate card stock at 1 1/2 x 4 and stamped the stitched leaves, in the same color. I then stamped a single flower in Watermelon Wonder and used my scissors to fussy cut it, then I placed a dimensional on the flower and placed it on the Smoky Slate piece. The Smoky Slate strip acts as a cover for my adhesive, that is how I attached the vellum paper to the card, by placing my snail under the strip. I then stamped the sentiment and placed it along the strip.
     I hope you enjoyed my card today! If you have any questions, or would like to purchase any of the materials used, please visit my Stampin Up site here. Again, the item numbers are listed under the pictures :)
     Please visit the rest of the talented demonstrators involved in the hop and gather some more inspiration using these gorgeous colors.

Heather

Color Fusers Blog Hop- July 2016- Part 2

      Welcome to part 2 of the Color Fusers blog hop! Thank you for stopping by, today I have a gift idea for you! I create a card keeper portfolio which holds 4 cards and 4 envelopes. I learned this technique from Meg Loven, you can watch her video here.

     For my portfolio, I used Whisper White card stock (100730), the Butterfly Thinlits Dies (137360), Rhinestone basic jewels (119246), Gorgeous Grunge Clear-Mount Stamp Set (130517), Cucumber Crush Ink Pad (138324), Flirty Flamingo Ink Pad (141397), and Peekaboo Peach Ink Pad (141398).

     To create this card, I cut my layer, stamped random blotches using the splatter stamp from the set, then I used the butterfly thinlit to cut out the butterfly. I used my snail adhesive to adhere the butterfly's body to the card. I really enjoyed making this portfolio and I hope you give it a try.

     If you want to purchase any of the materials used to create this project, please visit my Stampin Up website at heatherosborne.stampinup.net. Stampin Up is running a fantastic rewards program. For every $50 you spend in July, Stampin Up will email you a $5 coupon to use in August!

Thanks again for stopping by today and please follow the rest of the links to visit the rest of the demonstrators in the hop, located below the pictures of my project.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: July 2016-Part 1



I am pleased to welcome you to the Color Fusers blog hop. This is a fun hop that will showcase 3 Stampin Up colors; Flirt Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, and Cucumber Crush. If you're interested in purchasing any of the products used for this card, please follow the link to my Stampin Up online store: http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/heatherosborne/.

For the card I've created today, I used a Hostess Stamp entitled Time of Year. This stamp is one that you can earn as a hostess or if you spend at least $150. For more details, please contact me and I'd be happy to give you more details greenscrapinmachine@gmail.com.

I actually got the idea for my card from a Stampin Up promo sheet they sent us while we were able to preorder at the start of the new catalog that just went live June 1st. My card base is a standard A2 card that measure 11x4 1/4 scored at 5 1/2 using the extra thick Whisper White cardstock. I used a sponge dauber, Peekaboo Peach, and  a circle from the circles framelits set to mask an area that I used to emboss the sentiment in gold embossing powder. I used Flirty Flamingo and one of the accent stamps from the set to add a couple of flowers to the card. Using Cucumber Crush, I stamped the birthday banner and fussy cut it out then popped it up using Stampin Up dimentionals for a little added texture to the card. Finally, to add a little bling, I used the Jewel Basic Rhinestones to add a center to a few of the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed this card as I had so much fun making it. A list of materials and their item numbers are listed below the card.

I love Pinterest

Happy Monday everyone! I hope all of you mothers out there had a nice relaxing Mother's Day yesterday! I know I did, because I got to craft most of the day :) What better way to spend a day, than to craft. I did something I haven't done for a while, and that is case cards I found on Pinterest. I had so much fun creating this cards and I can't wait to make more. All of the supplies came from Stampin Up, you can order products from my website here.

For this first card, I used the Butterflies Thinlits Dies, the stamp set Work of Art, and the ink colors; Calypso Coral, So Saffron, and Pool Party.




This next card uses the Grateful Bunch stamp (which if you bundle with the punch you can save 15%) set along with the ink colors; Tangelo Twist, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry. As well as a strip of designer paper, a button, and a Vellum overlay. 


Finally, this last card used the Botanical Blooms bundle along with the card stock colors; Old Olive, Blushing Bride, and Melon Mambo. 



Thanks for stopping by today. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at greenscrapinmachine@gmail.com. Have a wonderful day!!

Hugs,
Heather

Retiring in colors blog hop Day 3

Happy Friday everyone! Once again, thanks for coming by to check out my project for today. I created an altered project for my post today. I went to my local dollar store and bought a package of 5 notepads for $1. I then cut a piece of white cardstock at 3 x 5 1/2. I then used the What I Love stamp set and all of the retiring 2014-2016 in colors to create a cover for each notepad. Then I added some bling and ribbon and these notepads look a little more expensive!

I hope you enjoyed my project for today. To get your own set of the retiring colors, please visit my website http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/heatherosborne/. Thanks again for stopping by and I'll see you next time.

Hugs,
Heather

Retiring in colors hop day 2

Hello everyone and welcome back for day 2 of the retiring in color blog hop. Today we are continuing to showcase the Stampin Up retiring 2014-2016 in-colors; Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, and Hello Honey.

I made a set of 4x4 notecards using a set from our previous Sale-a-bration promotion, a photopolymer stamp set called Another Thank you, which happens to be on the retiring list so if you're interested, please stop by my website to order it. http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/heatherosborne/ You can see all of the retiring products there as well. I also used an embossing folder entitled Decorative Dots, one of my favorites so I'm so sad to see it go.

For these cards, I used the ink pads and a blending pen to color in the flowers and butterflies. Then I used a Wink of Stella pen to add a little sparkle.

If you're interested in purchasing any of the wonderful products Stampin Up has to offer, please head on over to the link. I'd love to earn your business.

Have a great day!

Hugs,
Heather
