Brand NEW Stamp set Sailing Home

Hey Guys!,

I LOVE when the new CAtalog comes out by Stampin’ Up!!  I was drawn to the set Sailing Home as soon as I saw it!  If I had my way, I would go visit every Lighthouse!  Since I can’t do that I will stick to making cards using them!

Here is a card I did NOT CASE, I came up with it!  Hope you like it!  Here it is:

I did a video showing how I made this card, you can find it here.   I made my own cloud template and am offering it to those who order from me!  This uses a LOT of new goodies!  Sailing Home comes in a Bundle (which if you buy you will get 10% off!!).  The rope knot is a die, the die the Thanks is stamped on is included, plus the sailboat is cut out with a die.  There IS a die for the Lighthouse but I stamped and masked it.  Go check out the video to see how I got the texture on the sand.

Here are the specifics for this card:

I hope you like my card!  I always get so excited when I make something without CASE’ing it.  I know the reason I don’t do it more often is that I am swamped with classes and don’t have the time.  The nice thing is that YOU don’t have to come up with anything either.  There are so many ways to get ideas that we don’t NEED to try and do it alone.

Below are the supplies used for this card in picture form, click on any of them to be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me OnLine, you can get the cloud template that I used for this card for a thank you!  Or you can pick a card you like, I will add a little something from my favorites to send you also!  It’s like a Grab Bag!!  🙂

Thank you for stopping by!

Beautiful You is Flying High

Hey Guys,

Today I am sharing with you a card I found on Pinterest and I CASE’d it.  I can’t find it to show you, if you have seen it and know where I got this idea I would love if you would let me know.

Here is my card:

I masked the Lady after stamping her, then sponged the sky and stamped the trees.  I then colored her, this makes it look like she is in front of the trees.  The balloons were punched out with the balloon punch using Vellum which I then sponged with the color I wanted.  I put the white line in the balloon with the Chalk Marker, I placed a glue dot behind this chalk line to attach.  You can’t see it!  Of course I put another glue dot behind the black line for the ‘string’.  It’s a challenge to find spots to put your adhesive with Vellum because you don’t want it to be seen.

This was a really fun card, and my class loved it!

Storybook Ducks aka Fable Friends

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card I made that reminds me of my childhood!  I always loved to read, I would look through books ALL the time!  I also love to see baby ducks….well let’s be honest, I love all babies!

Here is my card:

I got the idea from Heidi Weaver, you can find her original card here.  I like to make my cards 100% Stampin’ Up! and I don’t use retired stamps to show you……I use the ones I keep that retired for Scrapbooking.

I love the colors of this card!  I used the blends to color the ducks and their outfits.  My girls absolutely LOVED this card!!

Show-Off Frog

Hey Guys!

I have always loved frogs.  As a Child I had an Aunt who made a HUGE deal everytime I tried showing her a frog in my hand……I would say “Guess what I have” she would not be able to guess so I opened my hands and there was a frog.  She would run away and act scared!  No matter how many times I would ask her she NEVER could guess what was in my hands!  LOL  Looking back of COURSE she knew what was in there, she was the BEST Aunt and I have VERY fond memories of her!

Here is my card:

 

So, when I saw this So Hoppy Together stamp set by Stampin’ Up! it brought back these fun memories and this was first on my list to get for free!  Free?!  What?!  Yes, for the first three months every year SU! has a Sale a Bration catalog that you can earn FREE stamps! But, time is almost out, you can only get this stamp set while supplies last or the end of March.  Go check out Pinterest and see how many ideas you can get using this set!

I love how it looks like this frog is almost falling off this bike and his buddy is cheering him on.  This is for my Kids card class coming up!  Too cute!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Sponging the sky and ground make this scene come to life. I added clouds from Up & Away framelits after sponging them with Smoky Slate and then going over the sponged edges with Wink of Stella. This makes the clouds look like they have a silver lining!

I hope you enjoyed my post!
