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!!

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:

How many NEW stamp sets can I get on a card? Plus Blog Candy!

I was perusing Pinterest seeing what I could make, and I found a Z fold card by Karen Watts and loved her scene!  Of course I had to start making my own!  And being me, I HAD to add to what I saw on her card AND put in my NEW stamp sets that I just got from the NEW catalog by Stampin’ Up!

I wanted to use the Bike Ride,  have the bike going along the beach, and since I had a beach I HAD (again) to use High Tide for the water!  High Tide is the greatest stamp set for making water!  And since I was using the water I also used the grass, birds on the beach and the birds that are flying!  Birds!!  For those that know me everytime I use the word/stamp birds, I think of Bambi and say it like Flower said it……..BIRD!  🙂

I also wanted to pull in Seasonal Layers with their Beach Chair!  That is such a fun set!  Ok, I admit it…….Stampin’ Up! has waaaaaaay too many cute sets!  They are fun to play with and BOY they are great for making a story!

Here is my card closed:

Cute, right?!!

Here is the card partially open:

There’s the chair!  And now open all the way:

I LOVE how it came out, don’t you!?  Not sure what sentiment to put on, or if it needs one……what do you think?  Sometimes when I send out my greeting cards, I don’t put a greeting on it, since I want to say what I want to say and let the card speak for itself!  Do you ever do that?

The Deets:

Cardstock
Bermuda Bay:  4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 8 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 11, scored in the same places (when you put on card, the folds are opposite)
Whisper White: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4 (x’s 2), 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ (xs 2) and scraps for stamping and chair.
I used a post it for the sun, JUST be sure and cut the circle in HALF before you sponge sun!  LOL  For some reason my mind couldn’t fathom that when I stamped the ocean that it would cover the circle….kind of hard when I didn’t take off the circle when I stamped the ocean OVER the circle!  Let me tell you, for some reason (though I’ve done it before) it didn’t dawn on me to cut the circle in half since I was ONLY using half of it to mask the sun.  Sheesh!!  I’m sure I am the ONLY one that happens to!

Now, on to my Blog Candy!!

Catalog Launch Prize Give-away using Colorful Seasons, now to make one for me!

Last Friday, I had my Catalog Launch Party and I had two Prizes that those who attended could win!

The first one uses the Birthday Delivery bundle!  LOVE this bundle, it is so much fun to play with!  Did you know that the thinlits not only fit the STAMPED images, but also fits the images on the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP)?!  It’s so versatile and you KNOW I love to get more from my stamping dollars!

I LOVE how the Chef has his can that will spray out the words “It’s your big day!”   Isn’t that so cute!  The balloons are fun to add, I had to ‘fussy cut’ the bear but it was super simple.  I’m sorry to say that I gave this away BEFORE I measured it!  I ‘think’ it was 8″ x 10″.   I made it on Thursday and I had a winner for it on Friday!  For the grass I sponged using Old Olive with a mask giving it that great wavy look!

For my other Prize I did a take on a card I made in another post:

I loved how this came out, and decided to see how it would look framed with all the seasons!  I have to admit I was soooooo excited when I was done, and a little disappointed that I had to GIVE IT AWAY!  LOL  I used Dazzling Diamonds to make the water sparkle, especially on the winter one to make the water look icy!  Here is a closer look at each Season:

The water is icy and the chair is sparkly with Dazzling Diamonds!

The trees are just budding with leaves and the Chair is in Pristine condition!

Summer time!  The sun is shining! The blooms are out!  The chair is a ‘little’ dirty, but we have that iced drink so we don’t care!!

Fall is here!  The leaves are changing!  The chair is almost ready to be cleaned for the end of the season!

Here is the full view!  Notice the Dazzling Diamonds background paper?  The measurements for this beauty is 11″ x 14″………..which is why I had to add the strips of Bermuda Bay.  Can’t have a place that has a seam!  There’s only ONE seam, but for symmetry I put two strips in!

For this Colorful Seasons framed art, I took off with the given name of the set……..Colorful SEASONS!  I chose to make four scenes but having the scene stay the same but change it up to see the Seasons!  I had a blast making this!  I used Lovely as a Tree to be my backdrop, and the best thing is that you can make this stamp set look different just by using markers!

Dimensions:

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #135315, 12″ x 11″ and 12″ x 2″
Bermuda Bay ( Brights Cardstock pack) #145409, 1/2″ x 11″ x’s 2
Basic Black #124267, 12″ x 9″
Bermuda Bay (see # above), 11 3/4″ x 8 3/4″
Seasons:
Pool Party (Winter) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Pink Pirouette (Spring) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Berry Burst (Summer) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Cherry Cobbler (Fall) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″

All Seasons are on Whisper White cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″, ‘frame’ is Pool Party 5 1/4″ x 4″ with a 1/2″ cut out on inside all around.

Water is Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay for all seasons except winter which is Soft Sky and Whisper White.

Trees are colored with markers:  Tree trunk is all Early Espresso, Leaves are Old Olive (spring and summer), Fall is Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.

For the water I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to make the water sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds on top.

For the winter tree branch thinlit I used the White Gel pen (retired) to make snow on the top, with Dazzling Diamonds over it to make the branches be snowy!

That’s it for the Dimensions!

I hope you like this post!  This took me a couple days to create but only because I had to think it up!  Once started, it took a couple of hours.

I will be making one for myself as soon as I am able!  I will probably take this to the winner on Monday so will have to make one before then, just in case I need a life size reference!!

I have my Blog Candy to give away TOMORROW!!  Wow, that went fast!  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!

Black and Gold meet up with Eastern Elegance, all I can say is WOW!

I had a class yesterday and we made three cards, one of which I am going to share with you today!  I was inspired by Priscilla Ivler.  I LOVE getting ideas from others and tweaking it a bit!

Here is the card we made:

Isn’t it stunning?!!  It’s not a ‘hard’ card, you just have to work on getting the thinlit to let go of the paper without ripping it.  My Die Brush has seen better days and the bristles are falling out!  Yay!  We get a new one in the NEW catalog!!

Here is the inside:

Everyone at class loved it!  And in person it is even prettier than here!  I know it’s hard to believe!

This is going to be a quick post today, if you want the dimensions just let me know and I will send them to you!

Don’t forget about my blog candy!!

Gorgeous Eastern Beauty card!

I was inspired by Daniela Hödl  when I made this card!  She made this stunning card:

Since I had to translate her blog I wasn’t able to see what size the original was.  I didn’t do the entire part that she did, but when I do a scrapbook page this is what I want!!

So, here’s mine:

And the inside:

Ok, I said I was inspired, but I ended up doing it  totally different!  BUT now I have the other one on my computer to do another time!  🙂

I added pearls to some of the front, they are on the outside of the Medallion and in the middle and right smack dab in the center! It’s hard to see in my picture…….

I used 2 of the New In Colors Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  For the Berry Burst, I stamped on scrap THEN on my card (this is called stamped off), this gives the Berry two different hues!

The ribbon is #144135, so on June 1st you can order it!   Hostess code for this month is:  97H62RVK   IF you order from me, I will send you a NEW Catalog!  Only US citizens can order from me, so if you need a recommendation from me, I know of a few that might be around you!

The stamp set is: Eastern Beauty #143675
And the Thinlits are Eastern Medallions #143725

Again, if you order from me, I will send you a free Catty!  PLUS a special something in the mail!

Sneak Peek Eastern Palace Suite and New In Colors

Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so fulfilling!  I get to meet so many great people, learn new techniques AND I get to pre-order product from the NEW Catalog!  It’s so much fun to be able to not only SEE new product, but I get to buy it and YES play with it before a lot of people!

THAT is worth the price of admission!   LOL  I know that is a saying, but to me it is so exciting!!

Not sure I told you this, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to SU! that I found out that I am creative!  What?!  You could have knocked me over with a feather, to find that out!  But, it’s now something that I don’t ever want to live without!

So, now that I have bored you with my reasoning on why I am a Demonstrator with the best company, I will share with you the card I made with the New stamp set Eastern Beauty:

It’s hard to see in this picture but I used the Sparkle Embossing Folder on the Black Cardstock, it matches the Designer Series Paper Eastern Palace perfectly!  Stampin’ Up! thinks of everything!

The Designer Paper is that beautiful new In Color Lemon Lime Twist, and did you know that Fresh Fig ink goes great with Lemon Lime Twist AND Eggplant Envy!  I also used the Glitter Enamel Dots that go with these colors great!

Here is the inside of the card:

Love, Love, Love this set!  You also can’t see in the picture, but the small flowers on the bottom have a Glue Dot inside the center and then I pushed Dazzling Diamonds into it, they make the perfect circular accent, AND they are Cheap!  lol  And because the Dazzling Diamonds are on them, they aren’t sticky anymore on top!

Again, don’t forget about the Blog Candy that I am offering!

May 15 is the date that I will have the drawing where you may be able to get it for FREE!  I love embossing folders, them give you the best texture and it just makes you want to touch the card!  You get into the drawing, just by commenting on any post here on my blog or on my Facebook Page between now and the 15th!  And there isn’t any limit on how many times you want to comment!  Go back as far as you want on this blog, and comment away!  🙂

I hope, once again, that you have enjoyed my post!  Subscribe to my blog to not miss out on any posts!

Sneak Peek of NEW Stampin’ Up! stamp sets Eastern Beauty, Eastern Madallions and Colorful Seasons

Today I TRIED to do a Facebook Live, and it came out ok, but I REALLY need to practice more!  hahahaha

I wanted to share with you today TWO/Three NEW sets from SU! that is coming out in June!  The reason I say Two/Three is because I am showcasing a set that has a Thinlit that works with it.  Not sure you would say they are separate sets, but they could be used apart.

The one I am sooooo excited about it Eastern Beauty and Eastern Medallions!  This set is so Versatile!  You can use the stamp set to make ALL kinds of great designs!  I have to still work on seeing what it does, so for now I will be sharing the card I made using the Eastern Medallion thinlits and a few of the stamps!!

Here is the card:

VERY pretty colors, right?  This is made with a lot of the framelits.  The cool thing is that you can mix and match them!  The one on the card that has the popped up part, is usually solid in the middle.  I used one of the other thinlits and placed it in the middle and made it so you can see through it!  Here is a sheet showing the one still attached to the cardstock and the other framelits in the set:

         

If you want to cut out an image to either put in the center. or cut out a center, you can see this piece leaves just the cutouts that you see:

OR if you want to cut out the image, use the smallest circle from the Layering Circles #141705 and t cuts it out perfectly!

Doesn’t Stampin’ Up! think of everything!  🙂

I started with a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Watercolor Paper and placed a lot of the Thinlits on the Watercolor paper, then added to them, to get the look I wanted.   I then got my Aqua Painter and colored some of the new pretty In Colors on the top of the Water Color Paper, making it as bright and pretty as I could!

I used Wink of Stella to make the paper sparkle and then popped up the piece in the center left by making the edges pull up (the piece doesn’t pop out all the way, just the petal edges).  I placed Dimensionals on the bottom of the entire Piece of Paper and then placed it on  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ piece of Copper Foil.  It looks so pretty in person, with the copper peeking out!

I stamped the saying from Eastern Beauty “enjoy today” on the right center and then used clear Embossing powder on it to make it more textural (I LOVE that our inks are wet enough to do this!!)

I used the brand new Glitter Enamel Dots that I got from attending OnStage in Savannah GA!!  If you are a demonstrator one of the MANY perks is that you get to see product before anyone else!  AND if you attend OnStage (which is all over the world!) you can pre-buy certain product before other demos that didn’t attend!  Of course I HAVE to go, so I can see/touch and order new goodies……as I’ve said MULTIPLE times, I am NOT  a patient person!  LOL

For the added touch before putting it onto the Berry Burst Cardstock I wrapped some Copper Thread so it peeks out of the side of the lifted petal and goes around the sentiment!

Here is the inside of the card!

Again, I used the stamps from the Eastern Beauty to adorn the inside!  Well?  Do you like it?

On my Facebook Live Video  New Sneak Peek Stamp sets I also showed another card.  I showed how this one was made, so I will show you the picture and if you want to see it made, go see the video…..just ignore how silly I look/sound/act……..this is what happens when you are not super experienced at it!  HAHAHAHA

I won’t show you the one I tried to make better on the video, because in the long run, I liked this one better!

Here is the inside:

I really love the Copper on the Designer Series Paper (DSP), don’t you?!  And the leaf in Copper looks so pretty on the inside!

If you live in the USA, I would LOVE to have you be a part of my Team!  You can sign up under me, get a discount, get to attend SU! functions, order product early and get to meet the BEST people!  What can be better than getting paid to do what you love to do!?

Check back in with me, I’ll be posting more retiring ideas AND new product!  Subscribe both to my blog and to my Newsletter and you won’t miss anything!
