Hey Guys!

Sunflower Shaker Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the Jar of Flowers stamp set AND the Mason Jar Shaker Domes! I LOVE shaker cards, and this one was so fun! The stamp of the Mason Jar is so cute! These are REVERSIBLE stamps! So, you stamp the image in Pool Party to mimic a Real Mason Jar turn the stamp over and you can shade it with the same stamp!

Here is my card:

No one can resist a shaker card! You just HAVE to shake it!

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is supposed to be a table with the brick being the wall. Do you see that? I wasn’t so sure how to make it look like a table, so this is what I came up with.

When I did the brick, I used real red cardstock and then ran the Memento Black ink over it to look more weathered and real. For the double bow ribbon I used the Forever Greenery Combo pack, the gold really sets off the gold in the DSP. And for the inside of the jar I used the Flowers for every season Gems. Really fun to to shake!

Here are the specific for this card:

Stamps:
Jar of Flowers
Comfort & Hope

Inks:
Early Espresso (for flowers)
Memento Black (for brick and Sentiment)
Pool Party (for water and for the jar)
Old Olive (for stems)
Blends: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake

Paper:
Bumble Bee 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Gold Foil 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
Black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Real Red 5″ x 3 3/4″
DSP 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
Whisper White 3″ x 5″ (for flowers AND inside jar) 5″ x 3 3/4″ (for inside)

Misc:
Forever Greenery Trim (gold )
Flowers for Every Season Gems
Stampin’ Seal
Brick & Mortar 3d folder
Dimensionals
Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Mason Jar Shaker Domes

Window Sheet Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that was inspired by a card online. You can find a video of my card here. I think the creator is french, and her name is Lezards de Cilou. Here is the card that influenced me:

She called it a Tripod card.

Having seen other cards made with Window Sheets as the front of the card, I wanted to have another go! If you would like to see an additional card I made using Window Sheets click here. Here is what I made today:

Sorry that the lights are reflecting off the Window Sheet!

And on the inside we have the sentiment that is hidden by the birds when it is closed:

This card is so pretty in person! The colors go so well together! I love how Stampin’ Up!’s product coordinates together. When I realized this 19 years ago, I knew that I wanted to get the discount and become a Demo! What I didn’t know is that I would STILL be doing it AND loving every part of it!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps: Free as a Bird, Lovely You (Brand NEW!!)
Inks: Memento Black, Old Olive, Rococo Rose, Blends: Rococo Rose, Old Olive, Soft Suede
Paper:Very Vanilla 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, Whisper White 2″ x 4″ (for stamping birds, then fussy cut around, Old Olive 5 1/4″ x 4″, Window Sheet 5 1/2″ x 4 1/8″
Misc: 2020 – 2022 In Color Enamel Dots, MultiPurpose Liquid Glue, Stamping Sponges

When cutting the Ornate Flowers border, cut it on the edge of the cardstock so you can place the other edge against the Window Sheet. You will need to color the flowers by sponging over the center of the flowers using Rococo Rose, and the leaves with Old Olive, you will also want to sponge the edges of the cut out with the Old Olive, this will make it blend. To place this on the Window Sheet, use a Silicone Craft Sheet, place a puddle of Liquid Glue and pounce the sponge over the glue and holding the cut out still, pounce the back so you won’t see where you put the glue. This makes it so much prettier on the other side of the Window Sheet.

Hope you are doing well!

Day of Service

Hey Guys!

Yesterday we had a Day of Service with Stampin’ Up! Our CEO Sara Douglass was online and she sent out the pdf that will help us make Beautiful handmade cards fast and easy!

THIS was extremely helpful and made my cardmaking go quickly!

I mailed out all the cards today, wanna see what I sent? Keep in mind that I used retiring product, but YOU still have time to get that DSP, Noble Peacock Rhinestones & Ribbon if they are still available go to my OnLine Store now!

Below I am showing you each one!

Card 1

Sorry the Sentiment is light, it says “I changed out of my NIGHT Pajamas into my DAY pajamas to send you this card” All the insides say “Sending you a paper hug”.
Card 2, Sending Hugs
Card 3, sentiment is the same on most of them…Wanted to get a lot done!
Card 4, Smile! LOVE this one!
Card 5, same sentiment about pajamas
Card 6
Card 7
Card 8

So, I made 20 cards, multiples of the ones above. I am NOT a ‘go quick’ crafting kind of girl! But, this was eye opening for me!! Not only are these beautiful, but I got them done and out in 1 day! THAT is unheard of for me! I also used the Spread Sunshine pdf available here, that you can download, print out and make your own cards! ALL proceeds go to helping with Covid 19!

Below you can see the supplies used in picture form. to get the measurements for the cards see the first picture. The only thing I added was a piece of Old Olive at 5 1/4″ x 4″. Do a card without layers?! Not me! My eyes are wide open, and know this about myself. But I really love how these came out, what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by, give this a try!!

Ornate Garden Quilt Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card where I have used the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP), cutting it up with Square dies to make a Quilt card! Also included in the Quilt part is Gold Foil!

Hard to see, but I have ruffled ribbon on the bottom of the focal piece.

Starting out, I cut the Ornate Garden DSP and Gold Foil using the Stitched Shapes Dies (Squares). Then, I cut each square in half, lay them opposite each other until I had a pattern that made me happy. Once I had that done, I cut a piece of Whisper White to fit under and glued them into the desired Quilt shape I wanted. There are so many ways to manipulate the squares, but this is the way I liked it the most.

For the border on the top and bottom, I used the Ornate Borders Dies also using the Gold Foil. But first, I layered the quilt pattern onto Old Olive, to make it pop! Once I had all that done, I used some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon along the bottom and ‘scalloped’ it so it had a ruffled edge. This turned out so pretty!! It’s very subtle in the picture but in real life it stands out!

After more white cardstock and Gold Foil, my Quilt card is almost done! I needed a sentiment to add to the front so I used ‘my friend’ from the Stamp set Ornate Thanks from Stampin’ Up! NOT sure if you have noticed by now but I LOVE SU! This company has added so much fun/creativity and Friends to my life, not sure what I would do if I didn’t have Stampin’ Up! in my life!

Of course I had to top off my card with some bling! I chose Gilded Gems to add that final touch. So? What do you think? Could it be for a wedding, birthday, pick me up or all of the above!?

As usual, here are all the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Ornate Thanks

Inks:
Versamark

Paper:
Whisper White Thick 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White 5 1/8″ x 3 3/4″, 4 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (for under Quilt)
Gold Foil 5 1/4″ x 4″, 5″ x 3/4″ (x2) for border, scraps for squares
Ornate Garden DSP scraps for squares

Misc:
Ornate Borders Dies
Ornate Frames Dies
Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (white)
Gilded Gems

Hey Guys!

I love when I go to the mailbox and there are actual cards in there! Usually we get junk mail or bills, BUT when it’s my birthday I get handmade cards! WooHoo!

Wanna see them? Some I won’t show the inside, since there are private messages inside, but some put their messages in a note so I can re-use the card if I want! Here are the cards I have received so far:

Front from Bea Redd
Middle
inside

I have always wanted to use the Pressed Petals Washi tape to make a flower, this card makes me want to do it even more! Thanks Bea!! She sent me this card all the way from NV! VERY talented!

This is a see-through card!

This is from my good friend Gale Presnell! We have each others backs and have walked the same roads…….She used the Lovely Lily Pad and the Lily Pad Dies from Sale-a-Bration! She also used Window Sheets which the flowers are on, the wording is on the inside! Love these kind of cards!

LOVE this color!!

As for this card, Pat Beck sent it to me! She used the stamp set Positive Thoughts from the current Occasions mini (If you like this stamp set…..LOVE the sentiment!…….get it now! It might not stay in the Big Catalog come June!!) Seaside Spray is one of my FAVORITE In Colors EVER!! Of course, Pat added Wink of Stella and some bling to the card! She knows me VERY well!!

LOVE this set!!

For my next card, this is from Kathy VanAntwerp (aka Twerp!) We are stamping buddies from way back! It was so sweet of her to mail me a card! This one uses the Poppy Moments Dies! Love that you can mix and match the colors to give it shading! Twerp, you are the best!!

That’s what I have gotten so far! Hope there are more, but this just might be it. I got more this year than last year, so I am a happy camper!

I’m glad you have stuck with me to see all my Birthday cards! This is my LAST year in my fifties, hope it doesn’t speed up too fast! Moreover, it was really nice to get Happy Mail when I am Sheltering at Home right now. Hope everyone is doing well, I’m going to go eat some Birthday Cake that my good friend Gale brought over! Yum!
