Here’s the Feeling Sentimental  bicycle in motion!  To create the motion, I inked up the stamp with Raspberry Ripple and stamped it four times, shifting to the left without reinking.  I love the effect.  Then I added the large Rhinestone to the front bike for added emphasize.

The beautiful paper is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack.  The stack includes 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  Each sheet is 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″, perfect for card making or picture matting and a variety of other projects.  And it’s printed in a lovely array of styles in beautiful In Colors.

“So glad” is stamped from the SAB Bloomin’ Marvelous set.  I used a Raspberry Ripple marker to color just the words I wanted from the stamp.  It fit just right in the circle punch layered on the scallop circle.

Do you need a quick birthday card?  This Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Marvelous birthday card is clean and simple.  And best of all, you can get this exclusive stamp set FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration! (Offer ends March 22nd.)

I randomly stamped the flowers in Marina Mist and then filled in with leaves in Wild Wasabi.  You could use this quick card to celebrate any happy occasion with a friend.

Well it turns out I don’t have any Wild Wasabi ribbon so I used some Gumball Green which coordinated quite nicely in real life but not so much in the photo…yikes!  But I’m sharing nonetheless because maybe you can envision it coordinating in your imagination.  🙂

Adding rhinestones to the flower centers is a super fast way to add some bling!  I just love these adhesive-backed jewels.  I use them on just about everything – even my big toe!  My daughter painted nail-polish flowers on my big toes last summer and we added the smallest of the rhinestones to the center.  😀

Only 8 more days for Sale-a-bration!

The Sale-a-bration Feeling Sentimental stamp set is perfect for the note cards and envelopes pack!  The rich Lucky Limeade color in the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper used on the envelope flap is just right for stamping the vintage bicycle on the front of the note card.

feeling sentimental note cards Here’s the set of three that I made. I chose monochromatic papers to cover the flaps of the matching envelopes for a on-fuss look.  I love the simplistic sophistication of a monochromatic color scheme.  And no special supplies needed, just paper, ink and scissors!

Bloomin’ Marvelous CAS Sketch Challenge

bloomin marvelous mixed bunch clean and simple

I love the simple layout of this card created with the Bloomin’ Marvelous and Mixed Bunch stamp set.  I love it so much that I’m excited to have you play along!  Announcing the FIRST EVER StampingJulie CAS challenge linky party (SJCAS001)!  To enter go to the bottom of this post for details and linking instruction.  And have fun!!

StampingJulie CAS sketch challenge linky party

Here’s the sketch.  I purposely did not give you dimensions because I’d prefer you customize your dimensions and have fun with it.  I love sketches because it makes creating soooo much easier if you already have a design in mind.  It’s kind of the ‘complete pancake mix’ of crafting! Instead of ‘just add water’, ‘just add paper’!!  Sometimes I like to just pick up a scrap on my craft table and make it work.  I think some of my best work has started that way.

bloomin marvelous mixed bunch clean and simple

Here’s a close up.  I stamped the background flowers from Bloomin’ Marvelous with versamark on the Basic Gray cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in Black StazOn over that.  To finish the button, because I don’t like buttons without a finish, I added a rhinestone to the top.  A super easy solution to naked buttons!!

And here’s another variation.  I used the same More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper (not just for Valentine’s Day) and the same Primrose Petals stamped and punched flower, then changed up the background paper, the ribbon and used butterflies.
