Masculine card By the Dock

Hey Guys,

Here’s a Masculine card using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set By the Dock for you! If you missed my last one, check it out here.

The last masculine card had a LOT more sponging and this one has a little sponging and I think it’s much simpler! They are both great cards but this one makes me happier…..not sure why, maybe you can tell me? Here is my card for today:

I LOVE how I colored this!

This is a CASE (Copy And Share Everywhere) from L’atelier De Mag, here is her card so you can see how I changed little things to make it mine:

My shore is more pronounced, but you can definitely see that I got my idea from here! Thank you L’atelier for your inspiration, I love it! The cardstock was changed up too, I LOVE using Early Espresso cardstock as a Base for my handmade cards.

For my inside I wanted to make it just as serene as the front:

Isn’t this card one you would like to receive in the mail? I absolutely love, love, love it!

Gang’s All Meer Double Slider Easel Card

Hey Guys,

I’m sure that you have seen around the Double Slider Easel Cards, I saw them too, and tried my hand at it! Using The Gang’s All Meer Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! was a no brainer for me. They are so stinkin’ cute! Plus, the sentiment says “Happy Birthday to a STAND-UP friend”, thought it would be perfect to have a stand up card! LOL

Also I used the SU! set Mountain Air, because I thought they would make a great backdrop for those adorable MeerKats! The Belly band is stamped with the cactus and colored with Blends. I tried so hard to find a fitting Designer Series Paper (DSP) that would fit with these cuties, but alas I couldn’t! So, what is a crafter to do? Make their own DSP! 🙂

Here is my card, you’ll see a few pics since I want to show you all the angles:

This can open fuller, the sentiment is on the pull out. Can you see that this is open on it’s own?

Inside

Cute right? I like it, depending on what everyone says at my classes is whether or not we make this in a class. It’s a little over the top, meaning it takes some time to get all the pieces together and put in the right place. BUT, it was super fun once I got the gist of it! Thanks go to Frenchie for her video! I may make a video if you would like to see it, just let me know!

As usual, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
The Gang’s All Meer
Mountain Air

Inks:
Smoky Slate (mountains)
Old Olive (trees and cactus/lizard)
Early Espresso (meerkats)
Soft Suede (behind Meerkats and cactus on belly band)
Balmy Blue (sky)
Blends: Crumb Cake combo, Old Olive light, Mango Melody combo

Paper:
Whisper White thick 4 1/4″ x 11″
Whisper White 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, 3″ x 4″, 1 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ for banner & for Extra banner if you make a full card: 1″ x 9 1/2″
[2 3/4″ x 1″ (scored @ 1/2″ each end), 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ scored @ 1/2″, 1 1/2″ x 1/2″ scored @ 1/2″ & 1″…..for mechanisms]
Balmy Blue 4″ x 5 1/4″

Misc:
1″ circle punch

Who doesn’t love a Palm Tree!?

Hey Guys,

First off, I want to thank you for sticking with me. I haven’t always been consistent with my blogging, but I HAVE been consistent with my classes. If you would like to do any of my classes let me know, I love to make cards and decorations and would love to have you join me!

Second, the card I am going to show you today is one that I somewhat cased (which means that I saw a card, loved it but changed it up just a little), this one was inspired by Michele Zindorf. She is very awesome but not everyone can do what she does, so I try to bring it down to what I would hope with some guidance anyone can do! Here is her card:

My card is one that fits in a regular envelope, that was my main objective……make this card, but have it fit into an envelope I have.

What I love about her card is that you really get to see the basket weave background, since I had to make mine smaller you get a hint of that!

Here is my card:

Not sure if I have told you this in the past, but my husband has a virtual tropical paradise in our yards, here in North Carolina! I grew up in SoCal, we and go to Disney World all the time and we both love how tropical it is. So, of course I naturally gravitate towards tropical stamps…..this one REALLY called to me! I hope you love how this came out as much as I do!

Here is the inside of this card:

Now, here is the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Timeless Tropical

Inks:
Garden Green (marker and pad)
Balmy Blue
Soft Suede (marker and ink pad)
Pacific Point
Crushed Curry (marker)

Here’s a GREAT Masculine card!

Hey Guys!

I know that you must think that I have backslid from my promise that I would continue posting. Two weeks ago, I went to Disney World with my family and near the end of our trip, I got sick. 🙁 Ends up, that my husband and Son got the flu, thankfully I ‘think’ I just got a cold. I’ve been trying to catch up on making cards so I can show them to you!

Here is the first card I made when I came back……. I was thinking that I wanted to play with the NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called By the Dock…..but I also thought that the dimensions of the set would work great with the set Best Catch. And it did! It totally looks like they are from the same set! Ya think?

Don’t you think the little fish peaking out at the fisherman is so cute?! I had to chuckle when I decided to put him in. Water scenes are one of my favorite things to stamp. Not sure if it’s because I was brought up fishing with my dad, or any kind of water just makes me calm and happy.

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
By the Dock
A Good Man (for the sentiment)
Best Catch

Inks:
Night of Navy
Pacific Point
Early Espresso (all stamps were inked with this ink)
Blends: Dark/Light Crumb Cake, Ivory, Balmy Blue for rings around man/fish
White Gel pen

Paper:
Night of Navy 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
Seaside Spray 5″ x 3 3/4″, scrap for sentiment

Misc:
Classic Label punch
1″ circle punch (for moon)
Sponges
Post-It Removable Labeling Tape (for making horizon and moon)
Mini Dimensionals
Wink of Stella

All of the SU! supplies will be in picture form below, click on any to be taken to my OnLine Store! For any purchase you make I will send you a handmade card AND a file full of 35+ tutorials! Every month I have new tutorials, so every time you order you will get this gift from me! I love that you follow me and definitely want you to know that I appreciate it! If there is anything I can do for you, or help you in any way, please let me know!

Thanks for stopping by!

I just realized putting this on, that the other card is where I got the idea for one of my other cards! Sorry Becca that I didn’t give you credit for that one!

Here is my card for today:

Third FREE card for buying the Painted Poppies stamp set!

Hey Guys!

Hopefully, you’ve been following along with my cards that I will do in a free class when you purchase the Painted Poppies Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! And, if you buy the bundle you can make FIVE cards! The last 2 posts I have been showing you the cards that we will be doing.

First off, can I say how much I LOVE this stamp set!? It is super pretty and the way SU! brought so many cool things that coordinate with it make it even that much better! Every time I get on Pinterest, I find something else that I want to do, or am inspired to make.

Secondly, I love that Stampin’ Up! is always encouraging us demonstrators to do well in our business. They gave us a challenge to sell a certain number of this set, and being that it is so cool, I doubt I will have any trouble! It was first on my list to buy and I’ve heard others say the same thing.

Enough Talk! Here is the 3rd card you can make with me:

Simple but very elegant, right? I love how the DSP brings out the color of the Poppy.

Here is the inside:

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp sets:
Painted Poppies Bundle
Peaceful Moments

Inks:
Memento Black
Gorgeous Grape
Highland Heather/Mossy Meadow Blends

Paper:
Gorgeous Grape 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 2 1/2″ x 3 5/8″
Basic Black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2), scraps for 4 swirlies on sides (from Die)
Perennial Essence DSP 5″ x 3 3/4″

Very Vanilla 5″ x 3 3/4″

Misc:

As you can see, Elegance doesn’t have to be hard! I love the touches of the black swirls (Die) on the sides, really sets off the flower, don’t you think? Plus the Wink of Stella adds just that POP that this card needs!

More Free Cards if you purchase Painted Poppies

Hey Guys!

Here I am again! Are you ready to see a card I made using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Painted Poppies? First, let me tell you that I have been challenged by SU! to sell a certain number of Painted Poppies. Second, I am really not thinking this is much of a Challenge since this set is STINKIN’ CUTE!

But, since this IS a challenge I thought I would add some incentives to purchase from me! So, I am offering 3 cards if you just buy the set AND 5 cards if you purchase the bundle. The class is FREE! You’ve already seen ONE of the cards, and I am here today to share with you a second card. Stay tuned throughout this week and next to see the others!

Here is my favorite that we are doing:

Isn’t this stunning?! It is a very simple card, but boy, does it pack a punch! I used one of the dies from the set, to make the swirly circle-ish image for the sentiment to sit on. Are you like me? Do you LOVE seeing things like this! I hope so, because my card for tomorrow has even more fabulousness! Is that a word, or did I just make it up!? Since the DSP has Granny Apple Green in it, this was perfect for my Granny Apple Green Ribbon. I also added the same color green for my Rhinestones, plus some Highland Heather Rhinestones. It’s like SU! made this paper just for the sparkly add ons!

Knowing that you like to have the specifics for the cards I post, here it is!

Stamps:
Painted Poppies
Honey Bee
So Sentimental (for inside)

Inks:
Memento Black
Granny Apple Green & Highland Heather Markers

Paper:
Granny Apple Green 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 1″ circle
Blackberry Bliss 5 1/4″ x 4″, 1/2″ x 3 3/4 (for inside)
Peaceful Poppies DSP 5″ x 3 3/4″, 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ (for inside)
Basic Black scrap for swirly cut out for sentiment (die), 3 3/4″ x 3/4″ (for under ribbon)
Whisper white 5″ x 3 /4″

Misc:
Granny Apple Green ribbon
Noble Peacock Rhinestones
Dimensionals

Here is a picture of the inside:

Since I love the sentiment so much, here is a close up of it!:

To do this, I inked up the stamp with Granny Apple Green. Then I dotted the last word with a Blackberry Bliss Marker, huffed on it, since it dries a little when coloring and stamped it. Didn’t it turn out so cute! I was so tickled that I made ‘confetti’ on my stamp! I’m such a goober! 🙂

The strip at the bottom is a piece of the DSP mounted on a black strip. Perfect touch if you ask me!

Hope you have enjoyed today’s post! If you are interested in getting this class in the mail, or in person let me know! I live in the US and if you are looking for a Demonstrator I would love to help you find your creativity!

Parisian Framed Sampler Occasions 2020

Hey Guys!

Today, I am sharing with you a Sampler that I found from Joanne Mulligan…..changed it up a LITTLE, but still wanted to give her credit!

Here is her piece:

First, I changed the background to black, changed up some of the sentiments, did the flower in right corner and Eiffel Tower different, Then I changed the background layer to some of the pieces.

Secondly, for the Eiffel Tower and the right top corner flower I stamped them on White then colored them with a Smoky Slate Combo Blends. I also added a BUNCH of Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems that I have been hoarding (I’m not the only one that does that, am I?) plus some Champagne Rhinestones……can’t have too much bling, right? MOST of the bottom layer is Champagne Foil for all but the small Blue squares.

To make lining this up MUCH easier, I first put the pieces already done onto a piece of 11 1/2″ sq piece of black cardstock, each outside piece goes to the edge of the black. then this was put onto a piece of 12 x 12 black. It really takes away the guesswork and stress of getting them in the proper position. Stampin’ Up! has retired the Black 12 x 12, thankfully I have some left over.

Measurements for this are: ***
Top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right are 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
All square small pieces are 2 3/4″ sq
Middle piece is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
*** this is for the Base pieces only, take off 1/8″ – 1/4″ for layers over the base.

I hope you like my take of Joanne’s great sampler! There will be a Special class either this month, or next month. The cost will be either $30.00 for my team members or $35.00 for those who aren’t. Of course everything will be pre-cut for you to complete this! To be expected, you will be doing your own stamping! What’s a Stampin’ Up! class without stamping?!

Below, you will find all the product that I used for this Sampler, click on any of the images to be taken to my OnLine store! If you shop with me, I will be sending you a file with over 30 tutorials for you to use!

Please come back again!
