Welcome Guest DT, Vicki Dutcher


Happy Labor Day, US friends!  Today we welcome our newest guest designer, Vicki Dutcher.

Here's her first project for us and what she has to say about herself.  Pop over to her blog and give her a warm IHP welcome!  And have a great day today!

Hi!  My name is Vicki Dutcher --  A little bit about me, I started stamping in 1996 for something to do while my son took his naps.  Once my neighbor took me to a Stampin Up party I was hooked.  Fast forward 5 years later when I found SCS and I became a serious addicted stamper.  I currently design for a few companies, along with being on a lot of challenge blog teams.  I probably average 20+ cards a week with my blog being aptly named, All I Do Is Stamp..  I love this hobby and the people I have met through it.  My husband and I live in hot, hot, hot Arizona and we love it here.  You can't beat 350 days of sunshine. 

I would like to thank Tracy and Kate for giving  me the opportunity to Guest Designer for I {heart} papers for September & October.  I am looking forward to designing with the array of products the store offers.  Check out my blog, All I Do Is Stamp



I was thrilled to use this fun image from Hero Arts, Just Sayin Hi, along with another fun product, Hello from Echo Park.  I layered my Hello x3 for the added depth.

A few basic supplies I also used:
Memento Ink; Tangelo, Bamboo Leaves, Dandelion, from  

I'll be popping in throughout the next couple of months using even more fun supplies from

i {heart} papers to make [what I hope] are cards that inspire you!

DT Day: Lori

Hi, IHP fans!  It's Lori here today with a project using stamps from Winnie and Walter.  Winnie and Walter is a company that's new to IHP, so be sure to check them out if you haven't already done so.  I love their fabulous fonts and how you can mix and match stamps from different sets to come up with a sentiment for just about any and every occasion you can imagine!


I used stamps from the The Big, the Bold, and the Happy set to make this card.  I stamped the "hello friend" sentiment in teal pigment ink on an aqua circle.  The circle is layered over a plaid patterned panel and a mint green panel.  I ran a strip of solid pink cardstock across the card, just beneath the text.  I tucked a strip of white mini pom pom trim underneath the pink strip to add some texture to the card, then arranged a trio of pink enamel dots around the cardfront as an accent.  I think deciding on the placement of those tiny enamel dots was the part of the card that took the longest!

DT Day: Sarah

Hi IHP fans, Sarah here with a masculine card today. In the southern Hemisphere it's coming up to Father's Day, so it's time to use my all time fave guy set - The Man by Avery Elle


I've paired The Man with Ahoy There papers - not just for nautical cards! The cool angled panel is cut with the Custom Panels dies. I've used Memento Luxe inks in Nautical Blue, Peanut Brittle and Northern Pine.



I finished with some enamel dots and a little stitching.

DT Day: Sheri

Hello IHP fans!  It's Sheri here.  For today's card I pulled out some goodies from one of my many recent IHP hauls...couldn't resist that BIG Summer Move Sale!  How about you??

Embossing paste seems to be a very hot trend right now and I LOVE how it adds texture to your projects.  I created a fun "Celebrate" card with some Translucent Embossing paste by Dreamweaver along with the Tim Holtz's Stars Layered Stencil.  It was super easy and I love the fun glossy effect I got on the black card stock.  I then stamped a sentiment from Paper Smooches Buzz words set along with the some of the stars to keep the fun theme throughout the card.  I added some clear Wink of Stella and Glossy accents to the stars to make them sparkle and for some added dimension


Supplies:
Paper:Neenah Classic Crest Solar White CS, True Black CS (Papertrey Ink),  Aqua Mist CS (Papertrey Ink); Stamps: Bold Buzzwords (Paper Smooches); Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); Tools: Nautical Embossing Folder Set (Lifestyle Crafts - Quickutz), Stars Layered Stencil (Ranger/Tim Holtz), Score-Buddy; Other: Ribbon, Clear Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Marker (Zig), Glossy Accents (Ranger), Embossing Paste Translucent (Dreamweaver)ATG Tape, Foam Tape

DT Day: Lindsay

Hello, hello i {heart} papers fans! It is Lindsay here with you today, to share a clean and simple card using a couple of fun new Paper Smooches dies.  Hopefully you've already gotten a set or two for yourself, they go fast!
To begin on my card, I took a white card base, and impressed the dashed line, from the Dots & Dashes die set, onto the bottom front.  I then die cut multiples of the rounded bandage from the Band Aids die set out of white cardstock, covering it with Soft Vanilla ink from Hero Arts.


After stamping my sentiment from the Chit Chat set, I adhered the bandages haphazardly all over the front.  I then die cut them again out of red cardstock, and adhered the hearts to the centers of the band aids.  I then covered the hearts with a bit of shimmer, using the clear Wink of Stella glitter brush pen. Thank you for joining me today!  I hope you found a bit of inspiration to use some of those fun dies that I know we all hoard, er, have. Have a great day!

DT Day: Vera

Hi everyone. Vera here today. Am normally, not one to take classes, but with my mojo been on a slump, I decided to take  Online Card Classes Stretch Your Stamps 2. And, boy, this is just what I needed to get my creativity going.

I created this card using one of the technique I learned from the class.


This card is so much fun to make and totally brings back my love of using watercoloring. I used the gorgeous flower cluster from Paper Smooches Blossoming Buds and the sentiment is combination from Avery Elle Oh Yeah and To The Point set. Finished it off with a couple enamel dots from Doodlebugs Bumblebee Sprinklers pack.

That's all from me today. Hope you enjoy today's card. Thank you so much for swinging by here.
