Reverse Eclipse Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am showing you a simple card that can be used for any celebratory occasion!  I used the Stamparatus from Stampin’ Up! to have the image ” celebrate” repeat.  You just line up the stamp on the cardstock at the top, ink the stamp, close the Stamparatus, stamp and then move the Stamparatus down to the next slot, and the Stamp is positioned perfectly all down the cardstock.  You can watch a video here to see what exactly the Stamparatus is!

But to see the process I did, watch this video!   The Stamparatus will be available when the new catalog comes out!  Contact me if you need a new Catalog!!

Here is a pic of my card:

I am very proud of this simple card!  If you know me, or watch my Youtube Channel you kind of know that I love cards that are a little more detailed and use a technique of some kind.  So, when I make a card that is easy to do, but still lets me have fun and do a technique, I am in HEAVEN!

The measurements for this card are:

Pool Party: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, plus scraps for the ‘YOU’
Basic Black: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2 for the inside too), 3 1/4″ x 2  for the label
Whisper White: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (x2 for the inside too), 2 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ for the label with the ‘YOU’ cut out.

For the Black label under the white label I cut it down on both top and bottom so it lines up with the white on top and bottom.  I used the Lots of Labels Dies 4th and 5th from the outside.

Below, you will see all the supplies I used for this card.  If you click on any image you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me, I will send you one of my handmade cards!

It’s a MAN card!!

Hey Guys!

If you’re wondering why my title sounds so weird it’s because I remember a cartoon that had the woman in it scream “It’s a MAN!”, in a very high voice, and she always scared that poor man!  LOL   My friend and I were reminiscing the other day about all our fun shows we watched growing up and this just popped in to my head when I was thinking of what Title I wanted.  ‘Manly’ cards are always a challenge for those of us that make handmade cards, for some reason the so-called ‘Girly Cards’ are much simpler to think up!  Hence the title!  LOL  So, now you KNOW just how crazy I am!

For this card I used the Truly Tailored Card from the Occasions 2018 Catalog from SU!  I got this idea from Tami White……I changed it up VERY LITTLE!!  Thanks Tami for your awesome MAN card!

Below you will see pictures of the items used for this card, just click on any picture and you will be sent to my OnLine Store!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you a handmade card as a Thank you!!

Magical Day Box Card

Hey Guys!

So glad you could join me for this awesome project I have for you today!

Funny that my nails match!!  Just got them done today!  This is the card in the closed position

Here it is Open, the next picture shows it from a higher angle so you can really see the ‘box’.

This was super fun!  I love the Magical Day Stamp set……I had used EVERY stamp in the set but the Magician,  and now I have used them ALL!  I colored with the Blends and also used the Magical Day Washi Tape!  This entire Suite is awesome!

I got this idea from Natalie Lapakko……..I’m a visual learner so seeing a video would have helped me learn, so I thought I could help you if you also learn by seeing!

This project takes a whole piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.  Score Horizontal @  2″, 3 3/4″, 7 1/4″ and 9″

Score Vertical @ 1 3/4″ and 6 3/4.

Follow along with the video to see where to snip and trim!  It was MUCH easier than I anticipated!

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!!

As always!  Have a great day/weekend!

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!

You can click on any supply image below to be taken to my OnLine Store!  I hope you choose me to be your demonstrator in the US!

Have a great day!
