Sunflower Shaker Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the Jar of Flowers stamp set AND the Mason Jar Shaker Domes! I LOVE shaker cards, and this one was so fun! The stamp of the Mason Jar is so cute! These are REVERSIBLE stamps! So, you stamp the image in Pool Party to mimic a Real Mason Jar turn the stamp over and you can shade it with the same stamp!

Here is my card:

No one can resist a shaker card! You just HAVE to shake it!

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is supposed to be a table with the brick being the wall. Do you see that? I wasn’t so sure how to make it look like a table, so this is what I came up with.

When I did the brick, I used real red cardstock and then ran the Memento Black ink over it to look more weathered and real. For the double bow ribbon I used the Forever Greenery Combo pack, the gold really sets off the gold in the DSP. And for the inside of the jar I used the Flowers for every season Gems. Really fun to to shake!

Here are the specific for this card:

Stamps:
Jar of Flowers
Comfort & Hope

Inks:
Early Espresso (for flowers)
Memento Black (for brick and Sentiment)
Pool Party (for water and for the jar)
Old Olive (for stems)
Blends: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake

Hey Guys,

This is a CASE (Copy And Share Everywhere) from L’atelier De Mag, here is her card so you can see how I changed little things to make it mine:

My shore is more pronounced, but you can definitely see that I got my idea from here! Thank you L’atelier for your inspiration, I love it! The cardstock was changed up too, I LOVE using Early Espresso cardstock as a Base for my handmade cards.

Gang’s All Meer Double Slider Easel Card

Hey Guys,

I’m sure that you have seen around the Double Slider Easel Cards, I saw them too, and tried my hand at it! Using The Gang’s All Meer Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! was a no brainer for me. They are so stinkin’ cute! Plus, the sentiment says “Happy Birthday to a STAND-UP friend”, thought it would be perfect to have a stand up card! LOL

Also I used the SU! set Mountain Air, because I thought they would make a great backdrop for those adorable MeerKats! The Belly band is stamped with the cactus and colored with Blends. I tried so hard to find a fitting Designer Series Paper (DSP) that would fit with these cuties, but alas I couldn’t! So, what is a crafter to do? Make their own DSP! 🙂

Here is my card, you’ll see a few pics since I want to show you all the angles:

This can open fuller, the sentiment is on the pull out. Can you see that this is open on it’s own?
sideways view
Inside

Cute right? I like it, depending on what everyone says at my classes is whether or not we make this in a class. It’s a little over the top, meaning it takes some time to get all the pieces together and put in the right place. BUT, it was super fun once I got the gist of it! Thanks go to Frenchie for her video! I may make a video if you would like to see it, just let me know!

As usual, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
The Gang’s All Meer
Mountain Air

Inks:
Smoky Slate (mountains)
Old Olive (trees and cactus/lizard)
Early Espresso (meerkats)
Soft Suede (behind Meerkats and cactus on belly band)
Balmy Blue (sky)
Blends: Crumb Cake combo, Old Olive light, Mango Melody combo

Paper:
Whisper White thick 4 1/4″ x 11″
Whisper White 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, 3″ x 4″, 1 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ for banner & for Extra banner if you make a full card: 1″ x 9 1/2″
[2 3/4″ x 1″ (scored @ 1/2″ each end), 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ scored @ 1/2″, 1 1/2″ x 1/2″ scored @ 1/2″ & 1″…..for mechanisms]
Balmy Blue 4″ x 5 1/4″

Misc:
1″ circle punch
sponges
Simply scored

So, what do you think? Is this something you want to make for yourself!? I hope you give it a try!

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″

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!!  🙂

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!

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)
