One sheet wonder #1

Not  sure what happened with this posting but it didn't go live, sorry. If you've been looking for it here it is!!  :0)
I decided to challenge myself and make a one sheet wonder pattern and cards.
        Now you may be asking yourself - What Is That?  Let me show you - here is the 8.5 x 11 paper layout. I took a piece of  card stock and stamped my pattern randomly on it. It's like making your own DSP. Then I decided on the cuts and made cards with them. I love this new stamp set - Love and Affection pg. 45 in the Stampin' Up caty.  There is a matching Floral Affection Textured Embossing Folders two small folders that match this set!  I decided to use only two colors  Sahara Sand and Dapper Denim.  You could use any colors for the card stock and inks with what ever stamp set you have!!!  the sky is the limit - we'll maybe your stamp supplies, but hey get creative and use your imagination.  If you do decide to try something like this let me know - leave your web page, blog name ... I'd love to see what you came up with.

                                                     My pattern layout ( I didn't get a picture of the page after stamping)
                                                                   I used a piece of typing paper to draw the layout.

Card 1 
I cut the 4 x 4 piece at an angle then sponged around it and the card base. Adhered it to the top and bottom of the Sahara Sand base.  I stamped the saying in the center and added a couple stamped flowers.

                                                               Card 2
This 4 x 5.25 piece was easy to used. Sponged again around it with Dapper Denim. Embossed the top S. Sand piece added my sentiment put that on a D. Denim piece cut a

Try Stampin On Tuesday #280

             Hey why don't you Try Stampin on Tuesday????    :0)

You know it's okay to Try even if it isn't Tuesday.  :0)      This is a 2 week challenge sketch with the theme of Splash, I had fully intended to use both the sketch and theme, had a card pictured in my mind but life happens sometimes.  My 92 yr. old mother in law landed in the hospital.  As of this post typing she is doing well and should be going home soon. (By the way - she is amazing she still cleans house for a couple of  people, works in the garden, and is so giving and helpful to her large family.)

I quickly put this card together and followed the sketch only.  That is one of the reasons I like this site, you have the freedom to use or not use what is posted.  Here is the sketch used for the next 2 weeks, if you so choose.

Here is my Vision of this wonderful sketch, ( I may yet have to make the other card that is still floating around in my head)   :0)

Vertical Greetings Stamp Set
Card Stock:  Mint Macaron, Whisper White
Ink:  Brown, Sweet Sugarplum, Delightful Dijon  Craft White(rolled the circle in this to make it stand out a bit)
Extras:  Blooms and Bliss DSP,   In Color Enamel Shapes, Petal Burst Embossing Folder

Well that's it for now, I do love reading comments so let me know what you think of my take on this great sketch, and thanks for stopping by Vicki's Visions

Flourishing Phrases bundle

This new stamp set and thinlits dies bundle is a beauty!!  I really love all the different occasions it can be used for. (The font has a nice mix to give it some character.)  The thinlit set has 10 different dies that really are lovely!!   I used three of the dies, the one on the front matches the big stamp in the stamp set.  I cut multiples and layered them to make it have more depth.  The strip behind it is the new embossing folder called Petal Burst.  I used two new in colors, Emerald envy and Peekaboo Peach.  If you keep scrolling down you'll see that this is an easel card (the other two dies are shown inside) and will stand up when opened.  thanks for stopping by.

Falling Flowers & May flower framelits dies

Hello again I'm still playing with new Stampin' Up products!!  This card we made at my card class last week along with the previous post for Try Stampin'.  We embossed the pink flower and then water colored it, when it was dry they used the clear wink of stella to make it sparkle.
