Wild About Flowers – Get yours before it retires!

Hey Guys!

Once again, I went to Pinterest to get some ideas for my Stamp class.  I ran across a card by Sue Lehrer.  I changed the flowers and the colors, the rest is her design!  I love when I am really busy and can’t come up with ideas that I can get them from others!

Here is my card:

I really love how the Washi is used on this card.  I forget about using it and then wonder why I don’t use it more when I do!

The ribbon is a favorite of mine too!  LOVE that it is staying in the new Catalog!

Dimensions:
Basic Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 2 3/8″ x 4 3/8″
Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2), 4″ x 2″
Rich Razzleberry 4 1/8″ x 2 1/8″

Rainbows and Unicorns!

Hey Guys!

Today I have a really fun and super cute card!  I LOVE rainbows, but who doesn’t?  I also love Unicorns!  So I put them together!  I got this idea from Kirsten Aitchenson on Pinterest.  I gave the card some black to make the image pop, but otherwise it’s all her.  Isn’t it cute?

The Rainbow took a few minutes to cut out each color, but honestly? It didn’t take as long as I thought it would.  I LOVE this card!!

TIP!!:  Cut a small piece of white cardstock that you will use to mount your rainbow on.  The dimensions are 2 3/4″ x 1″.  Place adhesive on your white piece, and start your outer colors going down almost to the bottom of the white.  This will hold your rainbow together AND let you pop it off the card with dimensionals. Your white will be covered up by the cloud!

The sparkle paper is from the Myths and Magic 6″ x 6″ glimmer paper.

Here are the dimensions for this card:

Island Indigo: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, plus scrap for rainbow
Basic Black: 5 1/2″ x 3 5/8″, 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside
Soft Sky: 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White: 5″ x 3 3/4″ inside and scrap for Unicorn
Scraps for Rainbow: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Island Indigo, Perfect Plum

I colored the Rhinestones to go with the rainbow and also colored the Mane and Tail using the Blends.

I used Wink of Stella for the Unicorn.

Hope you like this as much as I do!!  Please visit my YouTube Channel to see my other creations and see how I make them.

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!

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!

Below will be pictures of the items used to make this project.  Click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!!  If you purchase from me, I will send you one of my handmade cards!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you are new to me, I have a YouTube Channel where I TRY to do a video every Tuesday!  I would love it if you would subscribe and be alerted when my next video posts!

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!

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!!

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
Whisper White: 2″ 3 3/4″, scrap for Stitched Shape Oval
Basic Black 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Silver Glimmer Paper: scrap for Oval

I hope this helps you if you want to recreate this card!  I had a lot of fun making it!

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!

Ghosting with a Twist Technique Tuesday

If you like this card, look below and see how you can have me make you one!  Go to this video to see how this card was made!

I see the ‘Ghosting’ Technique all over, and I wanted to do this with a Twist!  I made a Beach landscape card, and wanted my chair to have a shadow, or ghosting effect, BUT I wanted to be able to see the water and sand behind the chair.  The thinlit from SU!’s Seasonal Layers cuts the entire chair out, and that would leave a BIG hole in my beach scene!  :-O  Can’t have that!!  So, I die cut out 2 images of the chair, one in Crushed Curry and one in Black.  Plus, I had to die cut out the chair directly from my scene!

Once the card was made, I cut out the chair which left a BIG hole in my card, so I had to remake my background on scraps of Very Vanilla to match the colors that I already had on my card.  This is much easier than you would think…….just sponge the colors you used onto Very Vanilla and stamp the waves for the water, tape them onto the back of your card.  It’s that easy!!  Then you will still have the outline to place a black chair, and it will be flat to the card, it looks just like a shadow!

Here is the view of the entire front!

Isn’t this pretty!!?  If you want to see this card from start to finish, just visit my YouTube Page to see this awesome Ghosting with a Twist Technique!
