Sneak Peek!! Amazing Life

Hey Guys!

Sorry it’s been a couple weeks, ok maybe longer…… I went to Orlando to attend the Stampin’ Up! ON Stage get together that SU! Demo’s attend.  I had such a great time! It was great rooming with my ‘SU! Besties’ (my girl friends and I only meet up at SU! functions) and learning/seeing all the new things coming out in January!!  I then spent a week with my Husband in Orlando for our 30th Anniversary!  The bummer is that I got sick the day after he got there. 🙁  I am STILL sick, and it’s been a MONTH!  Hence the reason why I haven’t been posting!

The card I am sharing with you today is from a stamp (Amazing Life) that we got for FREE while at OnStage!   I came up with this all on my own!!  I LOVE making my own designs, but time allowances don’t always make it to where I can do it.

I used this stamp from the set:

Doesn’t look like much right?

Well, I stamped it along the bottom with the two swirls going down, in Soft Suede ink. Repeated it along the bottom, lining up the swirls so they touched, then flipped the stamp over and lined up the two lines that are in the middle of the stamp.  I repeated this on top of the ones I stamped along the bottom and then flipped the stamp so the swirls were on the bottom again, and started all over to make a pattern!

After making the pattern, I stamped the 3 dot stamp in Petal Pink between the stamped pattern.  Don’t you LOVE how it came out!?  I was so tickled to see the beautiful pattern that this stamp made!!  If you watch the video I made you can see how It was done, if this doesn’t make sense.  I used other stamps for other designs, so be sure and check it out!

Here are the particulars for this card:

Paper
Petal Pink 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3/4″ x 3 7/8″, scrap
Gold Foil 4″ x 5 1/4″ (x2), scrap

Sympathy card using Bokeh stamp

Hey Guys!

I love the Bokeh stamp from Stampin’ Up!  When I stamp with it, just looking at it makes me smile.  It is very subtle and makes me relax for some reason.  For this card I inked the image using So Saffron on one side and Soft Sea Foam on the other, then I huffed on it and stamped it in the middle of a piece of Very Vanilla.  I then stamped ‘With Sympathy’ from Flourishing Phrases in Black in the middle.

I will be teaching this in a class at our Local Senior Center in Kernersville on Wednesday.  The Gold Foil paper surrounding the Very Vanilla sets off not only the stamp but the black background.

Hope you like this card!!  All the supplies used for this card are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store! I would love if you would choose me as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator if you live in the US!

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Card #4 Let it Snow Alpine Adventure

Hey Guys!

I fell in love with the Alpine Adventure stamp set from Stampin’ Up!, as soon as I saw it!  I HAD to get it and this card is one that I have come up with:

This is a fun set.  It really got my imagination going.  The embossing folder is SOOOOO pretty!!  Using it with the Gold Foil makes even more of an impact!  I found that it looks just as pretty no matter what side of the Tin Tile Dynamic folder you emboss with.

Here are the particulars:

Stamp sets: Alpine Adventures Bundle
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 2 1/8” x 5 1/8”, Gold Foil 5 ¼” x 4”, White 2” x 5”, 5 ¼” x 4”
Inks: Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green
Misc: Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets, Big Shot, Wink of Stella, Dimensionals Mini/Reg, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Tin Tile Folder

Here’s a look at the inside:

The inside:

I LOVE the Wreath, don’t you?

Tarnished Foil Technique

Hey Guys!

It’s been a while since I was last here!  Sorry, life got a bit busy.  I had my trip to Salt Lake City Utah for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event, and WOW I had so much fun! I met up with my SU! Besties and we room together every time!

I came home and 4 days later we went to Vero Beach for a much needed break!  It was so nice to sit and read on the beach!!  I was under the umbrella and the only thing that would have totally made it better was to have a Beach Boy bring me some drinks!  hahaha

Now I am home and I jumped right back in to my ‘work’.  I put the apostrophes there because I have so much fun creating it is sometimes hard to remember that I get PAID!  Love my job, if you want to join my team, just let me know!

On to the Tarnished Foil technique, thanks to my Besties Carol and Hetty for telling me all about it!  I HAD to come home and try my hand at it!

Here are the cards I did on my YouTube video:

Aren’t they stunning?!!  This is a fun and easy technique and no two are alike!  I Love stacking my ribbons, can you see it?  I ‘colored’ my gold edged ribbon with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends so it would go with my project and stacked it with the copper ribbon!  Go check out my video for all the dimensions.

I hope if you live in the States you choose me as your demonstrator!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you one of my cards that I use for my videos!  Shop Now!

As always, the items used for this post are listed below, each picture will link you to my OnLine Store!  I DO have some SAB items for a sneak peek, can’t list them below, but the one I used is called Happy Wishes, and I KNOW you will want it as much as I did!

I’m back to my ‘work’, I am making my Christmas cards, I’ll share those with you next time!!

Another Easy but wow card straight from the Catalog!

The card I am sharing with you today is from the stamp set Hello Friend!  I shared this card with you last time:

I, once again, looked in the Catalog for Inspiration!  This is the image that struck me as something I wanted to try:

This is using the kit on page 16 & 17:  Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit.  I don’t have the kit……….yet, but have the stamp set and wanted to give this a try.  I DID have the Gold mini sequins!  Those are just too stinkin’ cute!!  I was giggling when I got them!  It doesn’t take much (in the card making world) to make me happy!

I didn’t have the kit, but I loved the way the wreath looked on Crumb Cake, so I was using that.  I wanted a lighter green (than pictured) so I used Wild Wasabi as my green.  LOVE how the flowers are so white so I wanted to use Versamark and White Embossing Powder.  Here is what my card looks like:

Isn’t it pretty?  And not too many steps, sometimes simplicity is the best way to go!!

The sentiment is on Whisper White 1 3/4″ x 1 1/4″, then I used the Envelope Punch Board to round two opposite corners, to give a really pretty look!  I popped this up with dimensions after putting some adhesive on the card in the middle of the Wreath and laid down the Gold Mini sequin ribbon.  The ribbon is free to move on both ends, only the middle is stuck down.

The Gold Foil Paper is 5″ x 3 3/4″, but I cut around the inside edges to make a frame since you can’t see it and I didn’t want to waste any of it!!  The top Crumb cake is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.

Easy but definitely stunning!  In person, it’s even better!!

I have blog candy that I’m giving away too!  Here is what you can win:

To be in on the drawing on July 4th all you need to do is comment here on my blog, any post!  Or comment on my Facebook page, Instagram,  or Twitter!  I will put all the names into a Random Name Generator and I will announce the winner!  Who doesn’t want something free for just posting nice things?!!

August Paper Pumpkin

August 2015 PP

I played with my Paper Pumpkin today!!  It was so much fun, I just went to the Pinterest Paper Pumpkin site after I did the handmade cards and box straight from the PP directions, I wanted to do some different ones, and this site helped me pick out what I wanted to do!

The SU! card in the middle uses the new Gold 3/8″ glitter ribbon #139614 from the Holiday Catalog (2015) .  I cut up one of the cards with the stripes so I could get more from that one sheet (since it is printed front and back, I can make a lot of cards by piecing it.)

I also paired the saying with the Metallic Foil Doilies #138392 behind it to make it POP!  Adding dimensionals underneath really made it stand out!

The card to the right of the middle I used the cut up piece (from the middle card) and layered it onto Gold Foil Sheets #132622, and used the ribbon from the kit I was inspired by one of the cards on the site listed above.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the 1/2 off deal that Stampin’ Up! is offering now until the 10th of September, you get TWO months for the price of one!!  Just go to PaperPumpkin.com site and sign up!  Just remember to put me down as your Demonstrator!
