I have a quick clean and simple card today. It has been a busy week with my oldest child going through orientation at college, the county fair coming, and soccer. I know my son is more than ready for college, but I am not sure that I am ready. This Jar Of Love card is very simple but has a subtle butterfly background that is difficult to see in the picture.

The cute fireflies have a bit of Clear Wink Of Stella to add a bit of shimmer to the glow. The fireflies are so much fun to use for different projects. Come back tomorrow for a sneak peek at new fall products.

Why would I color a piece of card stock with the sponge brayer and So Saffron ink? I decided to use the sponge brayer and ink to color a piece of Whisper White card stock even though I have the So Saffron card stock. I loved the way the sponged card stock is not inked evenly to give it depth and texture. It is perfect for these Sprinkles Of Life cupcakes.

Have you ever wondered about the Stampin’ Up! Hostess Sets? I don’t always buy the hostess sets, but the Pun Intended set caught my attention. I liked the vintage look and paired it with the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper. I kept the lines of these cards simple and straight forward.

Stampin' Up! Hostess set Pun Intended on www.mystamplady.com

On the first card, I used the colorful side of one of the A Little Foxy DSP sheets and the camera image. Each of the main images has a couple of sentiments to coordinate. It is nice that there are multiple sayings so you can create for more occasions.

I used the gray side of the A Little Foxy DSP for my lightbulb card. I added color by painting the bulb Daffodil Delight with a Calypso Coral heart. The color makes the bulb pop out.

What do you do with Washi Tape? The easiest way to use Washi Tape is to use it as tape to attach a piece of card stock or embellishment to your card front, but beyond that I am not always sure how to use the tape. Looking at the Party Pop-Up Thinlits, I was inspired to create this Pop Of Pink Washi Tape piece.  Watch the rubber stamping video tutorial below to see the step by step instructions for this card.

Washi Tape Tip With Party With Cake Gold Foil and Party Pop Ups from www.mystamplady.com

Place a piece of Gold Foil paper behind the die cut paper to highlight the cutout letters. The balloon has a bit of shimmer from the Clear Wink Of Stella marker, but it is hard to see in the picture.

I am just squeaking in with a Monday Motivation. Someone posted a fall card with a pumpkin on a Facebook Group I am part of made with the Thoughtful Branches Bundle, and I couldn’t wait to give it a try. The card is fairly simple, but I did use the Rock and Roll Technique and sponging.

Thoughtful Branches Fall Pumpkin Stampin' Up! from www.mystamplady.com

I used the Rock and Roll technique to ink the leaf image. First I completely tapped the image in Old Olive and then I rolled the edges in Pumpkin Pie ink to get the to colors on one image.

Thoughtful Branches Fall Pumpkin Stampin' Up! from www.mystamplady.com

I used the leftover card stock from the pumpkin cut out to make a mask. I placed the mask over a piece of Whisper White card stock and sponged the opening with Pumpkin Pie ink. That way I had a solid background for the pumpkin.

The “Thoughtful Branches Bundle” is one of my favorite bundles and it is only available during August. You can create a few different trees and couple of flowers. Today’s card is is the hydrangea image cut out with the coordinating die. I love the big size of the flower.

Thoughtful Branches Special Stamp Set handmade thank you card from www.mystamplady.com

I cut the stem shape from the Whisper White background card stock and then embossed the card stock with the Petal Burst folder. Emboss the white card stock second, so you do not crush the embossing. After I had cut the stem, I placed it in the stem opening cut in the white card stock.
