Painted Seasons Double Time

The Painted Seasons bundle was added to the Sale-a-Bration line up as a second release.  I really love the succulent stamp in the set.  I thought this set would be perfect to do the Double Time Stamping Technique.  You could just use the designer series paper in the bundle, but it’s fun to create your background.  I also unwound the twine to use 2 or 3 strands instead of the full thickness.  I like the softer look being more like linen thread.

My club made a small card sample to go in their technique book with the instructions I printed for them.

All Adorned in Gorgeous Grape

I designed this card using the Sale-a-bration set, All Adorned, for my team get together and my clubs this month.  Everyone got a chance to play more with the Stamparatus to make the design.  It’s so easy to just turn the card stock and stamp each corner exactly the same plus the layered design in the middle.  I used Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape ink together for the main image, and the card base and background are Crumb Cake.

The finishing touches are these Glitter Enamel Dots and the Mini Striped ribbon.  There’s only about a week left of Sale-a-bration, so make sure you’ve collected all the free sets you want before the 31st.

Grapefruit Grove Foil & Lace Embossing Folder

I saw a similar card and just had to run these foil sheets through the Lace 3D embossing folder.  These foil sheets were free with Sale-a-bration and ran out quickly.  If you managed to get some and haven’t run them through your 3D embossing folders, give it a try.  It shows off the holographic properties in this particular color.

This is the Grapefruit Grove Foil paper run through the Big Shot with the Lace 3D embossing folder.

I used the Incredible Like You stamp set for the sentiment and the Stitched Shapes dies for the circles.  See links to tools below.

Blossoming Basket Card

I did this Blossoming Basket Card for my club in March to show them how awesome the Basket Weave embossing folder is.  This folder will carry over into the 2018 Annual Catalog that starts in June…Yay!  I used our awesome Stampin’ Blends for all the coloring.  I can’t wait to get new colors to add to my Blends collection.

This is a close up of my Blossoming Basket card.

I patted the Crumb Cake ink pad on the folder before running it through the Big Shot to get shadowing and more texture.  Since the dynamic folders do scrunch up the card stock a little more than the standard folders, the ink shifts slightly by the time the bottom is scrunched.  I still love the extra effects though and just made sure that was at the bottom of my card.  I just had to add some Wink of Stella too.

Lots of Lavender Card

I know Sale-a-Bration is over, but I have a few more cards to share from my recent classes.  The Lots of Lavender stamp set is so quick and easy.  If you managed to get this freebie last quarter, here’s another card idea.  I used the Shimmery White card stock for the water-colored background since it resists water better than regular Whisper White card stock.Close up of my easy card using the Lot of Lavender stamp set with a watercolored background.

This is an easy card using the Lot of Lavender stamp set with a watercolored background.

I always put an insert in my cards to write or stamp additional greetings and images on.  It gives it a more finished feel and nicer weight.  I usually wait on additional greetings though until I know who I’m sending it to and for what occasion.  The white piece above is the inside insert for this one.

Name Change to Green Moon Stamp Studio

I got married and changed my name in September, so it seems fitting to re-invent my website too with a new look and a new name.  I’m so excited about my name change to Green Moon Stamp Studio.  It fits me since I’m a moon-child hippy chick.  Green is also my favorite color and now also in my name, Greenlee,…how lucky is that???

The new logo and site which is in progress (possible viewable as you’re reading this, but if not, then very soon) is inspired by my Scottish and Irish roots and my love for the moon and nature.  I will start posting and doing videos more often now that my life is settling into a new groove with my amazing husband.

Oh, and don’t forget there’s only about a week and a half before Sale-A-Bration is over.  Get free stuff with every $50 or $100 purchase.

Last month, I did a birthday card stamp-a-stack class with these 3 card designs.  Thought you might enjoy seeing them.
