Another Purple and Green Card

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 6:01 pm

Hi Everyone,

For some reason, this has been the weekend for purple and green. So here’s another one with that same color scheme.

Purple and Green Thinking of You

Purple and Green Thinking of You

I used the grass from the Honey Bees stamp set from Papertrey Ink and the flowers were all created using the Blossom punch from SU! and the One of a Kind stamp set. It makes punching out these flowers so easy. I used Lavender Lace, So Saffron and Pale Plum ink to stamp the flowers. I also used Old Olive ink and cardstock, and a ribbon from Michaels.

Later this week, I am going to post some other cards I made using the same stamps, but they look completely different using other color combinations. It’s such an easy card to make, but it turns out so gorgeous.

Enjoy!

Sending Wishes Cards

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 6:13 pm

This card turned out so great–I love the purple/red combination. The flourishes are from My Time Made Easy and the purple polka dot paper is from PaperTrey Ink. I printed the sentiment on my computer since I didn’t have a stamp. The red bow is from my stash from Michael’s.

This is the same card using the brown polka dot/red combination. I saw this combination a lot at Christmas time, and thought it makes a nice masculine card.

May Cards

Here’s the first “different” card I did this month. It’s made with a design from “My Time Made Easy” and some pumpkin ink from SU! I think it turned out nice–but it does make me think of fall already.

GreenPumpkin Thought

Green/Pumpkin Thought

The flourish and little flowers are from My Time Made Easy, and the sentiment is from SU!s sentiments. The ink is pumpkin from SU! and the ribbon is Martha Stewart. The cardstock is Mellow Moss. I’m going to miss that dark green color–it goes well with so many other colors.

Colleen’s Creations Part II

Here are a few more of Colleen’s cards that she made recently.  As you can see, she really likes the In Colors from SU.  It’s good that they are keeping them for another couple of years. Also, check out the other post of her cards, Colleen’s Creations

Razzleberry Flowr

Razzleberry Flower


This card uses the Razzleberry DSP from SU and the Curry cardstock. She cut the flower from the Embrace Life set and placed it in the middle with a purple brad.

Razzleberry Friend

Razzleberry Friend

This card uses Razzleberry Lemondade cardstock. The medallion is stamped using Razzleberry ink. This card is similar to one on the last post, but it is done in different colors.

Razzleberry Layers

Razzleberry Layers

This card uses the SU Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and razzleberry ink. The sentiment is stamped with SU’s curry ink.

Razzleberry Thank You

Razzleberry Thank You

On this card, Colleen took the Medallion stamp set and stamped on curry cardstock. Then, in order to use both sides of the DSP, she folded it down with a brad. The sentiment is from SU’s Oval All set.

Hot Pink Love You

Hot Pink Love You

These are two of Colleen’s favorite colors, and they look great together on this card. She used black cardstock, then layered on SU’s Melon Mambo dotted, and then white. The bow is just plain white ribbon from Michael’s.

Pink Thinking of You Card

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 11:39 pm

Hi Everyone,

I made this card using the “grass” from the With Sympathy stamp set from PaperTrey Ink. The stamped flowers are from the same set, but the cut out flowers are from the Boho Blossom punch and the One of a Kind stamp set, both from Stampin Up!. I really wish they made more of these types of stamp/punch combinations.

Enjoy!

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , — patq3266 @ 1:09 am

Hi Everyone,

This is my card for the Operation Write Home Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoy my site.  The main blog for the hop is http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org.  This is my first blog hop ever, so I hope it’s successful and is the beginning of many.  I’m so happy that I can contribute to this great organization.

Green/Purple Thinking of You

Green/Purple Thinking of You


This is such a fun and easy card to make.  I cut green DSP paper from SU about 1.75″ by 4.25.  I made the bow out of Michael’s ivory grosgrain ribbon, and then threaded a piece of ribbon through the back knot of the bow.  I secured the ribbon on both ends of the green DSP paper before I attached it to the ivory card.  I stamped the card using  the flourish from SU’s Season of Joy stamp set, and used Old Olive ink.  I used the Sincere Salutations stamp set for the sentiment.  For the flowers, I used the One of a Kind stamp set that has three flowers together.  Then I punched them out with the Boho Blossom punch.  All the products used are Stampin Up.  I also used pop dots on the flowers, which I don’t always do when I am sending the cards to OWH.  And don’t forget to decorate the envie!!!

March Cards

Hi Everyone,

Here are just a few cards I made this month.  I concentrated on making Mothers Day cards since the deadline for them is April 1.  I always make a few cards for birthdays and general cards, since those needs never have deadlines.  I hope you enjoy these cards.

Pink/Green For You

Pink/Green For You

This card uses the SU Boho Blossom punch with the three flowers in the One of a Kind stamp set.  It’s great to have the punch match the stamps!! I used  Pretty in Pink  and Mellow Moss ink.  The ribbon is from Michael’s.

Pink/Green Love You

Pink/Green Love You

This is such an easy card to make.  I use the flourish from the SU Christmas tree set and the flowers are stamped using the SU One of a Kind stamp set and cut out with the Boho Blossoms.  I cut a pink rectangle 1.75″ x 4.25″ and adhere the bow to it before gluing it onto the card.    The Love You is from the SU tiny words stamp set.  That set is so versatile because the sentiments can fit in anywhere on a card.

Purple/Green Mothers Day

Purple/Green Mothers Day

This is similar to the Pink/Green card above, but this time it’s using Almost Amethyst ink and a lavender bow from Michaels.  The sentiment is one of the new clear SU stamps that were just released.  This is a really nice set with lots of useful sentiments, and it’s great that they are now clear, so you can see exactly where they appear on your card. 

Purple/Green Birthday Wishes

Purple/Green Birthday Wishes

This card is similar to the ones above it.  I used the scallop punch to cut out the Birthday Wishes stamp.  I used Old Olive for the green at the bottom of the card, and lavender ribbon from Michael’s for the bow.

Olive Green/Dark Purple Birthday

Olive Green/Dark Purple Birthday

This card uses the SU Garden Green stamp set and Old Olive cardstock.  I found some ribbon at Michael’s that matches the green–it actually looks better in real life.  But as you can imagine, this is a really easy card to make.

Purple Sympathy Card

Purple/Garden Green Sympathy Card

This card is made with my favorite PTI stamp set.  It’s so easy to use, and looks so nice in every color combination.  This is the set that was available last year at CHA to anyone who spent more than $100 at the PTI booth.  If you didn’t go to CHA, you could buy it for megabucks on ebay–if you were the lucky winner.

Pink/Green

Pink/Green Flower

Green/Aqua Friend Card

Green/Aqua Friend Card

I think the color on this card is Baja Blue, which has a lot of green in it.  I love making this card, but you need patience because you have to cut out the flowers.  Anyway, it’s an SU stamp.  The brads are from Michael’s and just happen to match nicely.  After I cut out the flowers, I color the centers just a little to make it a l ittle different.  The little flower is from the Season of Joy stamp set.  It’s actually a small poinsettia, but it will pass as a spring flower on this card.

Aqua Always on my Mind

Aqua Always on My Mind

My favorite thing about this card is the sentiment.  These are SU words that are uneven–it makes it so easy to stamp and not worry about whether they are on the card straight or not.

January Cards

Hi Everyone,

Here are some new birthday and thinking of your cards that I made to continue to send to military personnel.  I decided to skip Valentine’s Day since I don’t have any great ideas for using hearts.  I figured there is a demand for Birthday and other generic cards  all year round. 

If you would like to contribute cards for the military who are stationed overseas, Operation Write Home is a great organization to get involved with.  They supply cards for those who are stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other bases around the world so they can keep in touch with their loved ones in the States.  It’s amazing how many people are hearing about this organization and getting involved.   From the thank you letters that I read from the servicemen and women, they are very grateful that we are thinking of them while they are away.

Here are a few I made recently:

Brown/Pink Polka Dot Birthday
