First, have you seen projects using the Poinsettia Petals bundle on Pinterest?! As usual, I get my inspiration from there, but then I branch out on my own.
Second, I LOVE stamping on Vellum using White embossing powder, it makes any project look elegant! Such as my card (at least I think so!):

Third FREE card for buying the Painted Poppies stamp set!

Hey Guys!

Hopefully, you’ve been following along with my cards that I will do in a free class when you purchase the Painted Poppies Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! And, if you buy the bundle you can make FIVE cards! The last 2 posts I have been showing you the cards that we will be doing.

First off, can I say how much I LOVE this stamp set!? It is super pretty and the way SU! brought so many cool things that coordinate with it make it even that much better! Every time I get on Pinterest, I find something else that I want to do, or am inspired to make.

Secondly, I love that Stampin’ Up! is always encouraging us demonstrators to do well in our business. They gave us a challenge to sell a certain number of this set, and being that it is so cool, I doubt I will have any trouble! It was first on my list to buy and I’ve heard others say the same thing.

Enough Talk! Here is the 3rd card you can make with me:

Simple but very elegant, right? I love how the DSP brings out the color of the Poppy.

Here is the inside:

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp sets:
Painted Poppies Bundle
Peaceful Moments

Inks:
Memento Black
Gorgeous Grape
Highland Heather/Mossy Meadow Blends

Paper:
Gorgeous Grape 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 2 1/2″ x 3 5/8″
Basic Black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2), scraps for 4 swirlies on sides (from Die)
Perennial Essence DSP 5″ x 3 3/4″
Shimmering White 3 3/8″ x 2 1/4″
Very Vanilla 5″ x 3 3/4″

Misc:
Noble Peacock Rhinestones
Dimensionals
Wink of Stella

As you can see, Elegance doesn’t have to be hard! I love the touches of the black swirls (Die) on the sides, really sets off the flower, don’t you think? Plus the Wink of Stella adds just that POP that this card needs!

Below you will see all the supplies in picture form. If you click on any of the pics you will be taken to my OnLine Store! IF you decide to purchase this set from me, you are invited to my class where you will make either 3 cards OR 5 if you purchase the bundle! Live too far away? No problem, I will send you a pdf of the instructions with pictures!

Also, you will receive from me 40 +/- tutorials that will give you so many ideas! This happens every month, so if you are consistent in purchasing from me, you will be overwhelmed with ideas!!

Thank you for stopping by!

More Free Cards if you purchase Painted Poppies

Hey Guys!

Here I am again! Are you ready to see a card I made using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Painted Poppies? First, let me tell you that I have been challenged by SU! to sell a certain number of Painted Poppies. Second, I am really not thinking this is much of a Challenge since this set is STINKIN’ CUTE!

But, since this IS a challenge I thought I would add some incentives to purchase from me! So, I am offering 3 cards if you just buy the set AND 5 cards if you purchase the bundle. The class is FREE! You’ve already seen ONE of the cards, and I am here today to share with you a second card. Stay tuned throughout this week and next to see the others!

Here is my favorite that we are doing:

Isn’t this stunning?! It is a very simple card, but boy, does it pack a punch! I used one of the dies from the set, to make the swirly circle-ish image for the sentiment to sit on. Are you like me? Do you LOVE seeing things like this! I hope so, because my card for tomorrow has even more fabulousness! Is that a word, or did I just make it up!? Since the DSP has Granny Apple Green in it, this was perfect for my Granny Apple Green Ribbon. I also added the same color green for my Rhinestones, plus some Highland Heather Rhinestones. It’s like SU! made this paper just for the sparkly add ons!

Knowing that you like to have the specifics for the cards I post, here it is!

Stamps:
Painted Poppies
Honey Bee
So Sentimental (for inside)

Inks:
Memento Black
Granny Apple Green & Highland Heather Markers

Paper:
Granny Apple Green 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 1″ circle
Blackberry Bliss 5 1/4″ x 4″, 1/2″ x 3 3/4 (for inside)
Peaceful Poppies DSP 5″ x 3 3/4″, 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ (for inside)
Basic Black scrap for swirly cut out for sentiment (die), 3 3/4″ x 3/4″ (for under ribbon)
Whisper white 5″ x 3 /4″

Misc:
Granny Apple Green ribbon
Noble Peacock Rhinestones
Dimensionals

Here is a picture of the inside:

Since I love the sentiment so much, here is a close up of it!:

To do this, I inked up the stamp with Granny Apple Green. Then I dotted the last word with a Blackberry Bliss Marker, huffed on it, since it dries a little when coloring and stamped it. Didn’t it turn out so cute! I was so tickled that I made ‘confetti’ on my stamp! I’m such a goober! 🙂

The strip at the bottom is a piece of the DSP mounted on a black strip. Perfect touch if you ask me!

Hope you have enjoyed today’s post! If you are interested in getting this class in the mail, or in person let me know! I live in the US and if you are looking for a Demonstrator I would love to help you find your creativity!

Below you will see, in picture form all the supplies needed for this card. Click on any of them and you will be taken to my OnLine Store. Any purchase you make from me, you will receive 40 +/- tutorials! Each month I have new tutorials, so feel free in continuing to purchase from me, you will love the tutorials!

Mi Amour! Paris meets Poppies

Hey Guys!
Today I am sharing with you another card from the Occasions Catalog by Stampin’ Up! I LOVE the stamp sets Painted Poppies and Parisian Beauty. So, putting them together is a No Brainer for me! I got the stem from the stamp set Daisy Lane because I wanted the flower to have one. Surprisingly, I got the DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog the Golden Honey Specialty DSP. It’s cool because the inside of the card shows the other side.

Don’t you love that you can see the Wink of Stella on the flower?!

Here is a pic of the inside:

I used the Honey Bee Stamp set to bring in the DSP that you can see on the inside (not shown here)

For both the inside and front I used a strip of Gold Foil to set the ‘line’ where the DSP starts. I love black and white cards with a punch of color, don’t you? Also, I added the Champagne Rhinestones to the front to give it some added sparkle. Gotta have sparkle!

Here is the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Honey Bee, Painted Poppies, Daisy Lane

Inks:
Memento Black
Blends: Calypso Coral, Old Olive

Cardstock:
Basic Black 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scrap for ‘Amour’
Whisper White 6 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ scored at 4″ on long side
Golden Honey DSP 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″
Gold Foil 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ (x2)

Misc:
Champagne Rhinestones
Parisian Dies
Wink of Stella
Paper snips for cutting out flower/stem
Dimensionals

I hope you like this card as much as I do! Usually, I don’t come up with my own designs, but since there aren’t many samples out there, I had to this time! Please let me know what you think!

If you are looking for a Demonstrator and live in the US, let me know what I can do to help you in your creative process! I can mail you out a catalog if you need one, and if you purchase from my Online Store I will send you a handmade card, a small thank you gift and 30 +/- tutorials that change every month!

Hope you come back to see me!

Simple any occasion no stamp card

Hey Guys!

Today I thought I would share with you a card that is elegant and no stamping was used.  What?!  I know, what in the world am I doing NOT having stamps?  It just happened that way and I didn’t really notice until I was done.

I used the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper.  I really didn’t have any ideas on how to use it, but fell in love with it!  Here is my card:

The Leaf pattern going down the side is normally white, but I sponged it Granny Apple Green so it would pop on the card and show up on the White frame.

Here are the specifics for this card:

Paper
Blackberry Bliss 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
3 7/8″ x 2 7/8″
Whisper White 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″, 3 7/8″ x 2 7/8″, 5 1/4″ x 4
Granny Apple Green 4 3/8″ x 3 3/8″
Copper Foil 3″ x 4″
Inks
Versamark
Granny Apple Green
Accessories
Delightfully Detailed cut outs
Leaves Trinkets
Wink of Stella
Layered Leaves Folder
sponge Brayer/Dimensionals/Glue dots

You can’t see it on the card, but I went over the Laser cut outs with Wink of Stella, it adds to the elegance of the card.

All the supplies are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!  All OnLine orders receive a gift from me!
