Christmas in July Card #4! Plus blog candy

The card for today is one of my FAVORITES!  At least so far!  This is card #4 for my Christmas in July Class!  We will be making 16 cards at one time, or at least at one class!  3 cards each of 5 designs!

Here are the others that I have done up to now:

 

I absolutely fell in love with the ribbon for this card when I first saw it in the Catalog!  BUT, in person it was even prettier!!  Of course I had to use it as soon as I got it!

Here is the front and back of this card:

Super simple, but still sooooooo pretty!  Two ink colors, one stamp set!  The only time consuming part is attaching the sequins to the top of the card…….doesn’t have to be put on if you are in a hurry!

Dimensions:

**********
Card Stock:
Very Vanilla: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″, 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ front with trees
Tranquil Tide: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 3 1/2″ x 1 3/4″ under the deer with ribbon
Chocolate Chip: 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8′

*********

Just stamp the trees and Deer in Chocolate Chip, and the sentiment in  Tranquil Tide for the front.  On the inside I used Chocolate Chip, that’s it!

Sometimes simple is very elegant, I hope you think so too!

This is a FUN card!  I was inspired by BJ Peters, she used this idea but with Eastern Elegance, you can find her card here.   I was thinking of other stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! that could be used with this idea of the front flap opening to reveal a sentiment.  This is the set that I thought of!   Once you pull back the flap, here is what you see:

The inside is a simple piece of cardstock:

Christmas in July card #2 Plus Blog Candy

I love getting a jump on things!  This month I am planning on getting a jump on Christmas Cards!  I have a class at the end of the month where we will be making 16 cards at one time!  3 each of 5 designs!  I have already shown you Two of my cards:

      

The First one uses the Embossing paste and you can find the details here.   The Second one you can find here.

The Third Christmas card (out of 6) is straight out of the catalog!  I don’t know what you guys think about the new Catalog, but I LOVE the card ideas in there!  Stampin’ Up! has stepped up most of the ideas and I love them so much I have copied them…….or as a lot of Stampers call it (CASE…..Copy, And, Share, Everything).  It’s great when you are in a bind for an idea and there it is!

Here is the card I’m sharing today!

You can find this design on page 114 in the Catalog!   Another antiquey card!  I colored the berries on the bottom, so it’s TECHNICALLY not a total CASE but I pretty much copied everything else.  Do you like it?

Inside Pic:

Out of my 6 cards, most are straightforward and very simple, but others are a ‘little’ harder.  This one has some masking (I put the stamped image that was cut out of post it over the Santa to sponge around him, so I could get it darker around the edges than i wanted him) I then sponged again, to make sure and get parts of him sponged so it looks old.  This card is something anyone could do, with some guidance.  I HAVE  to have some easier cards so we can make them in bulk, but also have some stepped up cards so we, as stampers, are happy!

Details for this card: ie measurements:

*************

Card stock:
Soft Suede 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored in half at 4 1/4″
Very Vanilla 4 x 4 3/4″ torn on the 4″ side (once torn it will be approximately 3 5/8″)  and 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ (for the part the Santa is stamped on), 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside

Accessories:
Linen Thread wrapped around 2 x
Colored pencils, I used real red, but made it as dark as I could.

The rest of the supplies will be in pictures below, click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!

Christmas in July!!

Here is the start of my Christmas cards that I will be making this year!  If you receive cards from me and want to be surprised, don’t go any further!!  LOL

I am doing a class where we will make 3 each of FIVE Christmas cards, and if you prepay you get to make an extra Bonus card!  I’m hoping to get a headstart on my Christmas cards this year, how about you?!

I am going to show you today ONE of my 6 cards so far…….make sure you check back in so you can see the others!

Here is the first one:

I love cards that are weathered and antiquey……..I know that is NOT a word, but that’s the only one that came to mind!  LOL

I stamped the Music Notes on the Vanilla piece with Sahara Sand, but stamped off first so it wasn’t so dark.  I then tore the cardstock in carefully planned areas, and made it look old.  LOVE doing this, don’t you?  This card was really simple except that the ageing did tak a little time, but not as much as you would think.  I stamped the Reindeer? using Early Espresso ink, didn’t color him in at all, and I think he looks great!  I wanted some of my cards to be a little simpler since I will be making these in bulk.  I cut him out using the Stitched Framelits and then cut a mat using the Circle framelits using the scallop, cutting this out with Cherry Cobbler.  I used my Early Espresso marker to make the stitched edge look stitched!

For the Banner I used the Bunch of Banners thinlits.  Did you know that this banner thinlit cuts out BOTH the sentiment AND the border?  I hadn’t used this one yet, and was surprised that it did that, so I was able to frame the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler!

I added Linen Thread behind the Reindeer, popped up the sentiment with Dimensionals and I was done!   Easy Peasy!

Here is what the inside looks like:

Isn’t it pretty?

Below is a pictorial list of what I used to make this card, click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase anything from me online I will send you a handmade card!

Want some Blog Candy?  I have taken a few days off since giving away my last one, so I guess it’s time!!

I LOVE embossing folders and I also love Bakers Twine!  This Bakers Twine is Gray, my FAVORITE color!  Is Gray a color?

You can get this mailed directly to you if you win the drawing that I will be having in a few weeks on July 29th.  How can you win this?  Easy!  Just leave me comments here on my blog, OR on any of my Social Media places……..Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.  ALL comments count, no matter which posts you comment on!  You can spend a good amount of time visiting my older posts and commenting and they count!!  Not only will you be getting good ideas for you projects, but you will be put in my drawing each and every time you comment!  Pretty easy wouldn’t you say?

I’m off, dinner is almost ready!!  I’m very lucky, I have a husband who likes to cook and I don’t have to!!  WooHoo!

A card that SHOWS a Hummingbird flapping its wings!

Welcome to the North Carolina Blog Hop!  Or as we call it:  NCDemos!  If you ever want to be a part of the best group, join Stampin’ Up! and live in North Carolina!  We get together Quarterly and have the best time!!

Today I am sharing with you The Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called You Move Me!  This set at first glance isn’t all that exciting, BUT when you see the card in action, you can’t help but get excited!!

I am sharing with you a video that shows the card in action!

Isn’t that fun!!?

I used the Mini Treat Bag thinlit with the New Powder Pink cardstock!  Berry Blast was used as an accent color!  I also used the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape at the top of the Whisper White insert
(5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″). This card is super easy once you cut out the Mini Treat Bag, just cut out the shutter part before you put it together!  Then stamp the Hummingbird image using two colors of inks ( I used Fresh Fig) full strength on the bigger image, and then used Fresh Fig on the smaller image (line up head and tail!) but stamped off so I got a lighter color!  I thought it would be MUCH harder to do!  It’s always great when things are easier than they look!

I also used the Fresh Fig Ribbon at the top to help in the pulling up of the inside!

Blog Candy is available if you comment here on my blog (anywhere as many times as you want!), FaceBook, Twitter or Instagram!  That’s all you have to do to be in the drawing (held July 4th), that’s a pretty easy way to earn free goodies!!

This is what you will be in the drawing for:

You can’t beat FREE!!

Another Easy but wow card straight from the Catalog!

The card I am sharing with you today is from the stamp set Hello Friend!  I shared this card with you last time:

I, once again, looked in the Catalog for Inspiration!  This is the image that struck me as something I wanted to try:

This is using the kit on page 16 & 17:  Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit.  I don’t have the kit……….yet, but have the stamp set and wanted to give this a try.  I DID have the Gold mini sequins!  Those are just too stinkin’ cute!!  I was giggling when I got them!  It doesn’t take much (in the card making world) to make me happy!

I didn’t have the kit, but I loved the way the wreath looked on Crumb Cake, so I was using that.  I wanted a lighter green (than pictured) so I used Wild Wasabi as my green.  LOVE how the flowers are so white so I wanted to use Versamark and White Embossing Powder.  Here is what my card looks like:

Isn’t it pretty?  And not too many steps, sometimes simplicity is the best way to go!!

The sentiment is on Whisper White 1 3/4″ x 1 1/4″, then I used the Envelope Punch Board to round two opposite corners, to give a really pretty look!  I popped this up with dimensions after putting some adhesive on the card in the middle of the Wreath and laid down the Gold Mini sequin ribbon.  The ribbon is free to move on both ends, only the middle is stuck down.

The Gold Foil Paper is 5″ x 3 3/4″, but I cut around the inside edges to make a frame since you can’t see it and I didn’t want to waste any of it!!  The top Crumb cake is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.

Easy but definitely stunning!  In person, it’s even better!!

I have blog candy that I’m giving away too!  Here is what you can win:

To be in on the drawing on July 4th all you need to do is comment here on my blog, any post!  Or comment on my Facebook page, Instagram,  or Twitter!  I will put all the names into a Random Name Generator and I will announce the winner!  Who doesn’t want something free for just posting nice things?!!

Hello Friend! Stunning yet easy, Really!

I bought the new stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Hello Friend because it looked like it would be a fun stamp set to use!  I was NOT disappointed!

I went out on Pinterest to see what others have done with this set, and you know what?  NOTHING was out there!  So, what is a girl to do?  I checked out the SU! catalog, that’s what I did!  And you know what, they had the BEST idea in there!  Here’s what they have:

 This is using the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project kit on page 17.  I loved it, but of course had to make it my own.   Plus, I don’t have the kit…….yet!  You really should go take a look, you will love how easy and beautiful this kit is!

Here is mine:

Isn’t it beautiful!!  And the idea came right out of the catalog!

Dimensions:

Flirty Flamingo 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Black 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Watercolor Paper 5″ x 3 3/4″

I used Aqua Painters and the re-inkers for Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach.

I will have the items I used below, just click on the picture and it will take you straight to my Online Store!

I also have Blog Candy!  The drawing is on July 4th!  You just need to comment on any of my social media posts!  Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or here on my blog, anywhere!  EVERY comment counts!

Here is what you can win this time!

I LOVE Washi Tape!

I loved this card today, I hope you love it too!  When you can’t come up with an idea, just look in the catalog!  If you need a catalog, just let me know!  I would be happy to send you one!

Christmas Already? Wow card using Embossing Paste!

Yes, my title says it all!  I’m starting to design my Christmas Cards!  I’m sure there will be more when the Holiday Mini comes out, but I figure I need to start now and so do my girls!!

Today I am sharing with you a design I came up with using the stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called At Home with You!  I know I have shown other cards using this stamp set, but when you add the Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks it takes the card a step further than I had before!!  The embossing paste really makes the front of the card a house!  Here is a picture of the card:

I added two drops of Cherry Cobbler reinker to the Paste and mixed it on my Silicone Craft Sheet (soooo easy to clean after!) and then spread it over the Brick pattern on my Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/4″ x 4″ tape it down so it won’t move).  It was MUCH easier than I thought it would be!  It dried in just 30 minutes!  For this NON patient person that was awesome!  I did the brick first and then by the time I was ready for the front of the card, it was dry!  Yay for me!  No waiting!

Here is a close up of the bushes with the ornaments:

I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen and let it dry.

And finally a close up of a side view:

I want to try the battery lights for this card, but I’m a little intimidated by it…….anyone do that before?

I will be making more Christmas cards as time goes on!  I plan on having a Christmas card class next month……I better get going on designing!  🙂

I also have blog candy!!

You can get in on the drawing by posting comments here on this blog (any post! or multiple posts!) or on my Facebook page and I will put your name down each and every time you comment!  But be aware…..there are some that follow me that take that comment VERY seriously!  I’ve had her comment on each and every post that I make and she also comments on my Facebook page, Twitter AND my Instagram!  She’s one serious girl!  YOU know who you are, and I appreciate you very much!  🙂

Darling Baby Card! Kylie’s International Blog hop!

Once again I am TRYING to be in the top ten for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, will you help me??  I came close last time, but would really like to get there this time!   Can you tell that the dog is fluffy and two colors!?  Read on to see how it was done!

Please vote for me by going to Kylie’s blog hop page!  To vote, you will click on the heart in the right corner of the pictures, preferably mine!!  🙂

The theme this month is Baby.  My card isn’t traditional ‘baby’ but I think it would make a GREAT Birthday card for any baby, OR on the inside it could say that you are expecting!!  That you are HAVING a baby!!

Here’s my card:

Isn’t it cute!!??  Same as last month, I had a totally different card planned, but I didn’t think it mustered!  I came home from a stamp class today and sat right down and made this one!  I love how the dog has such puffy fur!  Want to know how I did that?

That’s Vellum that I stamped the dog on, using Soft Suede (then embossed with clear), I then turned it over onto one of our stamp mats, and using the stylus from the Score Board I press in circular motions (gently at first!!) on the places for the white fur, it makes the Vellum raise up and turn white!!  Cool Right!!?? I then cut ANOTHER dog out of Soft Suede (using the thinlit of course!) and popped up the Vellum, putting the mini dimensionals (YUM!) under the pom pom balls on his feet and front!!  You can’t see them, can you!?  That’s because the Vellum is so white that you can place them behind and it disappears!  I LOVE this technique!

Can you see the clouds in the sky?!  Those are made with Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Paste and the masks!

The little girl AND the dog are stamped, but the fox is cut out of the Designer Series Paper!  LOVE, love, love this suite!

Here’s a close up of the puffy:
