Ribbon of Courage

The greetings and images of “Ribbon of Courage” are so delicate and pretty, and I’m happy to have the ribbon framelit shape in my collection for so many causes.

I made this card for a team swap, and it shows off the coordination between the lacy die cut flower and the print on the ribbon.  There is also a solid ribbon stamp in the set.

The pinks on this card are Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo.  The designer paper is from the Whole Lot of Lovely collection.

Text Ya Later

“Text Ya Later” is a great set for our times.  I had some fun here creating cards that I can send to my girls when they are back at school.  Whenever you see two duplicate cards in a post, chances are pretty good that they were made with my daughters in mind.

If you get this set, you’ll probably find yourself studying your text screen like never before.

This is how my screen would look if I were texting my offspring – the recipient name is at the top, and the word bubbles are from the right, to indicate my part of the conversation.

This is a totally different message, shown from the recipient’s point of view.  Word bubbles to the other side, and my name at the top.  I haven’t decided which way I like it better, but I think they both convey the messages!

It’s a fun set to play with, and it includes a whopping 59 photopolymer stamps!

Gingerbread House Favor

I have another Christmas in July project for you – this time a cute little 3D favor made with the house framelit from the Home Life Bundle.  They are really fun to make, especially with the addition of the brick texture (embossing paste).

Here’s an end view that shows the space available for a treat.

In the green house, I added a tea bag and a gift card in a coordinating envelope.  In the red house, I added a tea bag and a Ghirardelli chocolate.  You could also use these as special gift tags or place cards for a table setting.

I made up a little neighborhood of these houses, and all of the products used are available now, ahead of the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  Video instructions are below.

  Click here if you would like to shop, or use the carousel at the end of this post to go directly to a specific product used in today’s project.

June 2017 Paper Pumpkin

The stamps from last month’s Paper Pumpkin are a real treat for summer projects!  Two stamps from the One in a Melon kit make up this watermelon – the fruit, inked here with Melon Mambo, and the rind.  I inked the rind stamp in Lemon Lime Twist first and then lightly rolled its edge onto my Emerald Envy pad before stamping.

I love these bright summery colors.  Don’t these preppy colors remind you of…

The preppy Navy, Olive, and Daffodil of the Delightful Daisy designer paper collection take me back to the 80’s too, but I am getting off topic now!

Oh my gosh, and remember these?  I found this searching for the Pappagallos picture…

Maybe this should’ve been my Thursday post since it is leading to these throwbacks!

Remember that orders for my July online classes are due Sunday, and I still have room in both.  Either stamp set would be a great addition to your collection, and there is no charge for the card materials.  Click here for complete class details.  Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

I really hate to be late with birthday cards, but it does happen.  At least “Happy Birthday Gorgeous” gives us a pretty font for this belated sentiment.

Our new In Colors – Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist – are so pretty together, and don’t you love this combination of Foil Frenzy Designer paper, Berry Burst ribbon and gold sequin trim?  I CASEd that edge treatment from a card I saw on Pinterest by Holly Stene.

Merry Mistletoe in July

I love to think of Christmas in July.  The planning and the projects are just more relaxed before the busy-ness of fall hits.  I am thrilled that we have this super-cute stamp set and designer paper available now in our Annual Catalog.  The stamp set is “Merry Mistletoe” and the paper is from the Be Merry designer paper collection.

This card has a fun band that opens to the right…

…while the panel of patterned paper opens to the left to reveal the greeting.

This is only one of the three designs in my Merry Mistletoe Class to Go.  The Class to Go includes supplies to make two of each of the three designs provided.  Click here for complete information on my Classes to Go, or email me at buckeyeinklingsorders@gmail.com to order.

Have a great day!

Home Life Welcome

I may have overdone it here with the quantity of flowers, but I couldn’t help myself.  It’s just so easy to produce die cut flowers with the Home Life bundle.

Here’s a look at one of the framelits in this set – and this is an example from a card of different colors, but you will get the idea.  The yellow flowers on the right are all created with one stamp.  The framelit cuts out nine of the flowers at once.  Genius!!

For the die cut flowers on my welcome card, I used the flower stamp only twice, once in Flirty Flamingo and once in Wisteria Wonder.  Then with two passes through the Big Shot, I had all of the die cut flowers shown (and more!)

The houses are made with three-step stamps that create a house shape when used together.  In addition to the stamp with flowers that can be die cut, there is a group of leaves on a single stamp and a group of mini flowers on another stamp.  There is also framelit to cut out the house shape.

I cut the front of my card short by 1″ to reveal the words on the Whisper White insert piece.  The Pear Pizzazz card base is 4 1/4″ x 10″, scored at 5 1/2″.

And here’s a look at the complete bundle:

Tabs for Everything

“Tabs for Everything” is a fun set of miniature words and images that can be used beyond greeting cards.  There is a coordinating punch to make that great tab you see stapled on to the vellum strip.  A 3/4″ circle fits on the tab, and I think you can tell by looking at the stamps…it’s just fun to play with this set!

I used a square framelit that measures just under 1 1/2″ and a strip of vellum 1 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ over the designer paper.  The designer paper from Pick a Pattern measures 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, and I have used the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape with it.  The colors really pop against these black and white elements.

I used something else new here, too – I used the Ticket Tear Border punch and those fun Glitter Enamel Dots.  There are so many goodies in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!  Click here if you would like to shop, or use the carousel below to go directly to a specific product used in today’s card.

July Classes To Go

June was dedicated to Paper and Ribbon Shares, and now I am ready to offer two new classes – one using an everyday bundle and one using a Christmas stamp set.

For the months of July-October, I will offer a holiday Class To Go in addition to a class of general greetings.  If you want to plan ahead, my August offerings will be the Coffee Cafe Bundle and the Carols of Christmas Bundle.  Carols of Christmas is an awesome set from our 2017 holiday catalog that will be released early.

My classes are a great way to get “a little extra” when you are buying a stamp set or bundle.  I don’t charge for the card materials and instructions.


The Colorful Seasons Bundle is a set with year-round appeal.  True to its name, it offers elements for each season.  I was overwhelmed with possibilities when designing this class, and I chose to make two summery cards and one fall card to get you started.  I especially love the fall card – a very eyecatching but easy (I promise!!) shaker card.

I decided to include full packs of sequins and enamel dots in this class because I know you will appreciate having the extras for future projects. I am also adding a free BONUS to this class – (12) 6″ x 6″ sheets of our Color Theory designer paper, one of each pattern.  You will love to have these papers in combination with the Glitter Enamel Dots to use with this bundle.

For the cost of the bundle, a pack of Glitter Enamel Dots, a Metallic Sequin Assortment and shipping, you will have the supplies you need to make six great cards, two each of the three designs shown.

In order to comply with Stampin’ Up! rules, I must take orders before obtaining product for the class.  I will take orders through Sunday, July 16, or until I reach capacity.  At that point, I will order product and create kits.  The kits will ship out to you no later than Tuesday, July 25.

The class cost is based on the retail price of the bundle and embellishments listed with tax and shipping for me to receive the materials.  I have also added a $7.20 priority mail cost for shipping to you once I have added the class materials.  There is no additional cost for the card materials and instructions.
