Free Donkey set Fancy Fold!

Of course I did a SECOND card for my Mini Class! And I also used the Free Donkey set!

Free Donkey stamp set on Memories & More gift card

First off, I wanted to tell you that I also used, along with the Donkey, the dies from the Bundle Ride the Range. I will be using this bundle for my next YouTube Live on Thursday January 14th! I hope you can join me. Also, I used some Free Designer Series Paper that comes in the Sale-a-Bration catalog as a bundle itself called Berry Blessings Stamp set + Berry Delightful Stamp set.

Secondly, as usual I am providing all the details needed to make BOTH projects:

  • Stamp sets:
  • Darling Donkeys
  • Many Messages
  • Inks:
  • Memento Black
  • Garden Green
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Blends:
  • Soft Suede
  • Smoky Slate
  • Color Lifter
  • Paper:
  • Basic Black: 12″ x 5 1/2″ (base), 5 1/2″ x 2 18″ (for panels) For Base you will lay it on your cutter/trimmer portrait and place the edge along the 3/4″ line and cut from the 1″ to 5″, pick up cutter and cut from 7″ to 11″, repeat for other side. Then place on trimmer Landscape and you will SCORE only on the outside edge (between the cut and edge), score on 1″, 5″, 7″ & 11″. Keep in Landscape and score ALL THE WAY across on 2″, 4″ 8″ & 10″. You will fold them on the outside edges mountain, valley, mountain valley (this is the same on both sides working towards the middle) Do both top and bottom. Inside flap gets folded mountain, valley, valley, mountain.
  • Granny Apple Green: 3 7/8″ sq. (back panel), 8″ x 3 7/8″ for middle scene, 5/8″ x 7/8″ (x8) for bottom and top small edges, 4 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ (for gift card)

  • Misc:
  • Open Range Dies

  • Layering Circle Dies
  • Stitched Shapes Dies (for sentiment donkey is kicking)

As you already know if you follow me and my blog, all the supplies will be listed below, click on any of the pictures and you will be taken to my OnLine Store! For any purchase of $35 or more you will receive from me the class packet for the class I am detailing today, which will include all the cardstock, die cuts (not the sentiments since that is not allowed per SU!) but I can send you the one die cut for the sentiment that the donkey is kicking since that is stamped with the stamp set and not the Many Messages. Also, you will get the Rhinestones and I will pre cut/score for the main card and die cut the circle for the gift card! The one thing I can not do is stamp anything.

BUT the great thing is it’s Sale-a-Bration now and you can get MORE than you would normally! Spend $50 and you can pick out that CUTE Darling Donkey set for FREE! This is while supplies last, so don’t wait! Furthermore, you will get the 16 project ideas in a PDF that has step by step instructions and pictures….hint, my Home decor item is what I made!! So you will have the measurements for that too!

Thank you for all your support! I so appreciate you joining me on my Live classes and for those who can’t watch live I appreciate you watching it later!

If you are in need of a catalog, let me know and I will get one right out to you!

Love ya!

The inspiration for this card was Becca Santos, I changed up a lot so I’m not even sure you would recognize that I was inspired by her card, but I want to give credit where it’s due! Here is her card:

I just realized putting this on, that the other card is where I got the idea for one of my other cards! Sorry Becca that I didn’t give you credit for that one!

Here is my card for today:

I used the Crinkled Seam Binding for the bow, but I colored it first with a Poppy Parade Blend! Isn’t it pretty?! You can’t see it on this picture, but I used Wink of Stella on the flowers and WOW, that makes it really pop in person!

When I am looking at other’s blogs, I always want to know the measurements and everything that is included to make that card. So, in honor of me, here are the specifics to this card:

Stamps:
Painted Poppies
Peaceful Moments

Inks:
Memento Black
Blends: Poppy Parade Dark, Mossy Meadow combo, Crumb Cake light
Crumb Cake (for sponging)

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:

PROJECT 1: Lighthouse
Stamp Sets Pg #
Sailing home Bundle
Paper
Seaside Spray 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Pretty Peacock 5 1/4″ x 4″
White 5″ x 3 3/4″, scrap for sailboat and sentiment
Inks
Crumb Cake
Soft Suede
Pretty Peacock
Balmy Blue
Memento
Accessories
Big Shot
Wink of Stella
Dimensionals
window sheets for clouds

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!

Rooted in Nature beach scene

Hey Guys!

I love my Job!  I get to make beautiful handmade cards AND show others how to do it! After my classes everyone is so happy with what they have made!

I got this idea from Cindy Elam, I found it on Pinterest and changed up a little, here is her card:

I LOVE layers, I wanted to add to this beautiful card.  Here is what I came up with:

Here are the specifics for this card:

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!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp Sets
Beautiful You
Sheltering Tree
Colorful Seasons
Paper
Highland Heather 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Vellum
Inks

Memento
Balmy Blue
Blends: Balmy Blue, Ivory
Black marker
Accessories
Glue dots
Chalk marker
Balloon Bouquet punch

Below are pictures showing these supplies, click on any of them to be taken to my OnLine Store.  If you don’t have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love if you would choose me to help you with your creative needs!

I send those who order OnLine a small gift to say thank you.  If you’ve been following my blog you know that I offer a LOT of different goodies!
