Witty-Cisms Cards

One of the cutest and easiest stamp sets in the Stampin' Up! January- June 2020 Mini Catalog is the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set.

There are 7 cute images with clever sentiments - along with 2 additional sentiments to make a card for just about any fun occasion.  These are just two out of the set!


When I looked at the  strawberry stamp - I immediately thought of gingham paper and scalloped edges.  So I got out one of my favorite dies - the scalloped edge die - from the Stitched Be Mine set.
I cut two Whisper White long narrow scalloped pieces to add to the sides of my Red Gingham piece going the length of the card - 5 1/2".  A Whisper White scalloped circle is layered with a Call Me Clover Circle and then topped with the stamped and colored white layer that was punched out with the Label Me Lovely Punch.  I forgot to put the Black Momento ink on my supply list - sorry!
But you always want to stamp with the Momento Ink when coloring with your Stampin' Blends- so that the ink does not smear or run.  I colored my Berry with both the Light and Dark Real Red Stampin Blends and the Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin Blends.  I also colored a piece of the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon with Dark Real Red Stampin' Blends, then used that with a piece of white ribbon together to tie a little bow.  I topped the card off with a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  
The Red Rhinestones are being offered as one of the new Freebie Items in the New Sale-A-Bration items in the 3rd Release of Sale-A-Bration Items
There is one week of Sale-A-Bration left - if you want to take advantage of these deals!


For those of you who enjoy Taco Tuesday - I did a Taco Witty-Cisms card!
This one is my favorite!
I knew I wanted bright colors with my Awesome Taco - so I went with Real Red for the base, then a layer of Call Me Clover.  For the Crushed Curry Layer  - I ran it through the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing folder and then used a 1" circle punch to clip off the corners. 

I could not find the right patterned paper I wanted to use for the tag - so I made my own!
I took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and drew stripes on it just using a ruler and several different Stampin' Blends.  I cut the tag shape out using the Bonanza Dies and punched a piece of  Gorgeous Grape from the Label Me Lovely Punch for the next layer.  
The sentiment is cut with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies with Whisper White card stock  then stamped in black Memento ink so that I could color in my taco with Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light Pumpkin Pie and Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin Blends.

 To finish the card off I tied a bow with the Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and added purple rhinestones to the corners.

As I mentioned above - this is the last week for all of these Sale-A-Bration deals.  With every $50 purchase you will be able to choose  a Sale -A-Bration item free!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
