WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2021....CASE THE CATALOG....YOU ARE AMAZING.....

 HEY, HEY STAMPERS!  HAPPY WEDNESDAY!  

LAST NIGHT I WAS SITTING IN MY CRAFT ROOM, TRYING TO FIND SOME INSPIRATION FOR A CARD.  I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO FIND SOME INSPIRATION AND MADE THIS FABULOUS CARD: 



DO YOU EVER GET LIKE THAT....WANT OR NEED TO MAKE A CARD AND HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO INSPIRATION....NO IDEA WHERE TO START?  IT HAPPENS TO ME ALL THE TIME! 

MY GO-TO IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS IS A CARD SKETCH....BUT I HAVE DONE QUITE A FEW OF THOSE IN THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS......NEXT WOULD BE TO PERUSE PINTEREST.....BUT THEN I SPIED MY CATALOGS.  

I GRABBED THE J2J MINI AND OPENED THE FRONT COVER AND BEGAN TURNING PAGES.  IT ONLY TOOK A COUPLE OF PAGES FOR SOMETHING TO CATCH MY EYE.  

IT WAS THE FABULOUS YOU ARE AMAZING PROJECT KIT FOUND ON PAGE 7.  I HAVE HAD MY EYE ON THIS FOR A WHILE NOW....BUT STILL HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO ORDER IT.  HERE IS A PIC OF THE KIT: 


THIS IS AN ALL FABULOUS KIT THAT MAKES 16 CARDS AND COORDINATES WITH THE YOU ARE AMAZING STAMP SET



WELL THIS IS THE CARD THAT CAUGHT MY EYE: 


IT IS SO BRIGHT AND CHEERY IT MAKES ME SMILE.  WE CAN ALL USE A FEEL GOOD CARD RIGHT ABOUT NOW.  THIS ONE DOES IT FOR ME. 

SO THEN I THOUGHT.....I CAN CASE THIS CARD AND TEACH A TECHNIQUE FOR MY BLOG POST TOMORROW!  

HERE IS MY CARD AGAIN: 


STAMPERS....THIS CARD WAS QUITE SIMPLY DESIGNED BY ADMIRING THE SAMPLE IN THE BOOK.....THEN DESIGNING MY CARD USING THE PRODUCTS I HAD ON HAND.  

THE CARD BASE IS PRETTY PEACOCK.....THE MAT LAYER IS WHISPER WHITE. 

FOR THE TECHNIQUE PART OF THIS CARD, I SIMPLY USED THE MARKER BACKGROUND TECHNIQUE. I USED STAMPIN WRITE MARKERS TO DRAY HORIZONTAL LINES USING THE FOLLOWING COLORS: 

  • PRETTY PEACOCK
  • MANGO MELODY
  • BERMUDA BAY
  • GRANNY APPLE GREEN
  • FLIRTY FLAMINGO
I DID NOT USE A RULER....I WANTED IT RANDOM.  IF YOU WANT PERFECTLY STRAIGHT LINES USE A RULER.  

THE BANNER IS FLIRTY FLAMINGO I FOUND IN MY SCRAP BIN AND CUT A FLAG IN THE BOTTOM.  

THE GREETING WAS STAMPED ON WHISPER WHITE USING PRETTY PEACOCK INK. 


THE WHITE GREETING AND THE GRANNY APPLE GREEN MAT LAYER WERE CUT USING THE PAINTED LABEL DIES FROM THE ANNUAL CATALOG....I SIMPLY USED MY SNIPS TO TRIM DOWN THE WHITE ONE SO THE GRANNY APPLE GREEN ONE FORMED A BORDER.  THEN I CUT THE SWIRL FROM THE SAME DIE SET AND GLUED IT TO THE BACK OF THE LABEL.  

THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY IS FROM THE SOON TO BE RETURNING HEY CHICK STAMP SET.  


THIS WAS A 2017 SALEABRATION CHOICE THAT THEY ARE BRINGING BACK ON FEB 2 WITH DIES.....AND IT COORDINATES WITH THE HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK AND IT WILL BE AVAILABLE AS A BUNDLE INCLUDING DIES TOO! 

HERE IS A FLYER THAT STARTS ON FEB 2: 

AND YES....I DID CONTACT STAMPIN' UP! YESTERDAY....IF YOU HAVE THE HEY CHICK STAMP ALREADY YOU CAN PURCHASE THE DIES SEPARATELY....THE ITEM NUMBER IS 158199

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY....I HOPE I INSPIRED YOU TO GET STAMPING.  IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME ANYTIME: ANDERSONSHEL@GMAIL.COM
