Moonlit Scene made with Stamps!

Hey Guys!

I have another technique for you today on making another landscape scene!  This one is for a Moonlit water scene!  To see it done in person, you can watch me make it here!

Here is the card that I show how to make it!

I was so excited on how this card came out!  I even tackled doing a reflection!

Here are some of the cards that I show at the end that you might want to see closer!

I made this one after looking at this photo i found online:

Here’s another card I made:

 

I saw a card like this online, but couldn’t find it again.  I pretty much copied it!  I did change a little in the sky, but the rest I kept.  If you happen to see this card please let me know so I can give credit.

This is also from the same person, this is where I learned HOW to make the Scenes!  Again, if you see or know who made the original, please let me know!  I did add some Glitter & Clear Epoxy Dots to make the rain look more real!

Hope you like this post.  Check back in for my other posts!

Make a Pop Up Card easy by Eyeballing it!

Hey Guys!

I am not much of a Measurer and if it takes me too long to ‘figure it out’ I tend to not want to do it!  That doesn’t mean that I WON’T do it, just that I put it off until I have plenty of time!  I keep seeing these Pop-Up Cards and I wanted to figure out an easy way to make one, that I could teach and show on a video…….
I figured out a quick and easy way to make a Pop-Up card that takes minimal measuring and hardly ANY stress!  Check out my video!

Here is the front of the card:

I absolutely LOVE this Stampin’ Up! set: Waterfront!  It really makes you feel like an artist, and you can make the scenery any way you can imagine!!  I changed the scenery inside, popped up some trees and I am thrilled with the result!

The trees fold down when the card is closed and Stand up when open!  On my video you can see just how easy this card is!

Here is the view from above:

I hope you like this card as much as I do!  The supplies are listed below, just click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!

Until next time!

Stunning card made with FREE stamp set-Heartfelt Blooms

Hey Guys!

The card today is one I came up with all by myself!  That happens rarely and I get so tickled when I make something that I didn’t get any help from Pinterest or any other places!  It popped into my head and it came out even better than I thought it would!!

Not only is this stamp set Gorgeous, but did you know that Stampin’ Up! has a patent pending on HOW they made it?!!  When you look at the actual stamp before inking it up, it looks absolutely FLAT!  How in the World did they get a completely flat stamp to have so much dimension!?  NOT sure what/how they did it but I love it!

I’ve seen pictures of people who have stamped it and used different colors to differentiate the flowers,  here is one I took while at On Stage Live in Salt Lake City:

Isn’t that So pretty!!!?  The hint they gave to us was to stamp it with a light color so you could follow it.  If you give it a try I would love to see it!  I tried, but it didn’t come out.  That is why mine is one color!  Hahahaha   I’m still trying to figure out how to work the blends and have perfect shading………

So for my card above, I used Rich Razzleberry Cardstock, black and Gold Glimmer paper!  I added ribbon to the back by putting Tear & Tape around the edges (after I stamped it and cut it with the Stitched Framelits) and then I pleated the Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon over the tape.  I then used the Foam Adhesive Strips to make it stand up higher.

I added some Fine Tip Glue to put some Gold Glitter on the smaller flowers.  I also used the Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon and colored it with the Razzleberry Blend so it would go with the card!  Love that!

I stamped the sentiment in the Basic Black and then immediately clear Embossed it so it would give texture and it just makes the Sentiment look so elegant, don’t you think?

Here are the Dimensions of the paper:

Rich Razzleberry: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 4″ x 5 1/4″ (x2) one for the inside,
3 5/8″ x 3 3/4″
Basic Black 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (x2) one for the inside
Gold Glimmer paper 3 7/8″ x 4″
Whisper White 2 3/4″ sq (to fit the square stitched framelit)

I hope this helps!!

Another Fun Swap using the Magical Day Stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

 

Hey Guys!

I was perusing Pinterest the other day and saw this really cute card that had the ‘wind’ from the Christmas Stamp set “Star of Light”  blowing out a candle.  Well, my mind went immediately to the Dragon in the SU! set Magical Day and how cute would it be if he was Lighting a candle!?   This is how my mind works sometimes so I went with the idea!

Here is the card:

As I’ve said before ‘I just love this dragon’!  I love how I colored him this time using Calypso Coral Blends and Cherry Cobbler Blends.  NEVER would I have put these colors together but, again, I saw it done on Pinterest.  It really makes him stand out, doesn’t it?

Here is the inside:

This Stamp set from SU! also has thinlits that cut out not only the characters, but the Banner seen above!  Waves, that I will be using soon, and lots of other goodies!!

For the flags in the front, I used the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I sponged the edges with the color that was on the DSP, and also made a banner out of the Silver Glimmer paper and the FREE Shimmer Ribbon pack from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  This ribbon is so pretty!!  And it comes in THREE colors and sizes!  I also used Rhinestones and the Scattered Sequins Embossing folder.

The Dimensions are as follows:

Cherry Cobbler 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Daffodil Delight 5″ x 3 3/4″
Dapper Denim banner 2″ x 5″
Gray Banner 1 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Silver Banner 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Calypso Coral Ribbon 3 3/4″
Scrap of White for Stitched Oval
Scrap of Calypso Coral for Scalloped Oval
Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)

I really hope that those who received these swaps love them as much as I do!!

Technique Tuesday – Espresso cup holder for Valentines Day or for a loved one ANY day!

 

Hey Guys!

Today is Tuesday!!  Today I am going to share with you a REALLY cute project that I’m sure you have seen around……..I JUST made it after Christmas with my team members and I LOVED it!  They did a class for our team, and I got to come and be a Student!!  It was so much fun and I am TRYING to get them to do it again!  LOL

Click here to see the video!

The one we did with them was a regular coffee theme and it was stinkin’ cute!  Those little cups are darling!

For my Technique this time I wanted to do something that ANYONE would love to get!  It is so full of love I just had to share!

The Belly Band can hold a gift card behind the cup.  It has the Sentiment ‘You Fill me with Happiness’, and of course I filled the cup with Chocolate!  The sentiment comes from the SU! stamp set Jar of Love.  The DSP is Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and it has Gold Foil Accents throughout the paper!  This paper is stunning in person!  I had a hard time cutting into it…….just had to keep reminding myself that “It’s just paper”!  LOL  I’m sure I am not the ONLY one who does that!

On the video I will have all the dimensions for the project, and you can see how it was made.  IF you really want to see the glimmer and glam check out the video!  NEXT week I’ll show you a quick and easy way to make the Gift Card Holder using your own Designer Paper!!

I bought the cups/lids here.

And for all the dimensions I have written them down on my Coffee Cup that I took apart to get the exact measurements.  I’ll show you that on the video too!  But here is what I wrote down.

This includes the card holder which I will show you next Tuesday!

Have a great day!

FUN Swap card using Magical Day

Hey Guys!

I am sharing with you a card that I made for a swap that I signed up for where I made 20 of these cards (below) and received 20 different swaps back!

Here is my card:

I think I love this stamp set so much because it reminds me of Disney and being a kid.  Below I will have all the supplies listed to make this card, just click on any of the pictures to be taken to my OnLine Store.

I also used the Stamp set In the Trees by Stampin’ Up! for the grass under the dragon.  I stamped the ‘Magic stars’ in Versamark on the Black and then embossed it with Silver Embossing powder.  I thought it added just that right sense of MAGIC!!

The dimensions for this card are as follows:

Bermuda Bay Base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Soft Sky: 5 1/4″ x 4″
Cherry Cobbler: 2 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, scrap for scalloped Ovals

Basic Black 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Silver Glimmer Paper: scrap for Oval

Technique Tuesday-Making a Diamond pattern background

Today is Tuesday!  That means that I have a video out today showing another Technique!  Today’s Technique is making a Diamond pattern using the Simply Scored and sponging to highlight those scores.  It came out so pretty!  Surprisingly a very easy background!  I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen on each point that intersects and then added Silver Glitter.  You can see the video here!

I also used the FREE ribbon from Sale a Bration that has THREE different ribbons!  If you need one of the catalogs, just let me know and I will get it out to you!  You can also get the new 2018 Occasions catalog!  I send out mailings once a week, so just ask!

NEW! Sneak Peek from the 2018 Occasions Catalog #2

Are you ready for card #2?  I am using the Petal Palette stamp set that will be coming out in January!  I love how this card came out!

The front uses the Beautiful flowers that I used the Blender Pens to color.  If you look close you can see the dots that I used that remind me of Baby’s Breath flowers, behind the flowers!  I used Smoky Slate stamped off for these.  This was fun to make and I will be doing this in class this month!

Here is the inside:

I love how this stamp has shades in the leaves and I didn’t have to do anything buy ink and stamp!  This will make a great Valentines card for one of your couple friends!  Or you can use it as a Wedding Card and color the flowers to match the colors of the Wedding!
