High Tide Close Up

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that I HAD to make!  I saw it on YouTube by Esther-Stampin Star Creations.  THIS card was so much fun to make and I LOVE Black and White cards!

The ONLY thing I changed up from Esthers’ card is I added the Baker’s Twine on the bottom.  I also think my white is smaller than the one she used, I didn’t notice it was smaller until after I cut it! So there it stayed.

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp sets

High Tide

Paper
Whisper White Thick 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ (x2)
black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Inks
Memento black
Basic Gray
Accessories
Layering Circles (2nd biggest)
Dimensionals
Black Bakers Twine
Sponges

When you look at this card, it looks like it would difficult. Or time consuming.  It’s neither!  Sponging is the main effect and that is easy to do!   I absolutely fell in love with this card and when that happens I HAVE  to make it right away!  I was done for the day, put on a video on YouTube and saw this one while I ate dinner. Normally I would plan on making it the next day, but this called to me and now that I have made it……..I LOVE it!  Thank you Esther!

If you are looking for a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love it if you could choose me!  I also have a YouTube Channel, and if you check me out and like the style of cards I make, we could make a great team!

Below are pictures of the supplies that I used, click on any of them and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me I will send you a small token of my appreciation!

Beautiful Promenade with Silver

Hey Guys!

Happy New Year!  Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year.  I’m excited to see what the New Year Brings, are you?

Here is another card that I saw on Pinterest that I HAD to copy! The idea came from Robyn Cardon, I added the ribbon/changed the color, but the rest of the idea came from her!

This is my first time using the New Lovely Lipstick in the In Colors. I really like it!  The picture makes it look more like Melon Mambo, but it has more red than pink to it.

I used Silver Embossing powder to make it pop, and added the ribbon.

Vellum, Roses and Silver Oh My!

Hey Guys!

Here is another beautiful yet simple card!

This card is inspired by one I saw on Pinterest by Kristine McNickle.  I LOVE Basic Gray and Grapefruit Grove  together!  It is a great pairing, don’t you think?  See that cut out at the bottom? When the card is closed you can see the Grapefruit Grove peeking through.  It is a pretty design element.  The square floral paper is Designer Series Paper!  Such a pretty and easy way to bring elegance to a card.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with White Embossing powder.

The Beautiful Promenade stamp set, has a thinlit that goes with it called Beautiful Layers.  This is where I got the feature at the base of the card.  You can get 10% off the Bundle when you purchase both the stamp set and the thinlits.  My next post will have another thinlit from this set, so check back in!!

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
Vanilla 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2)
Inks
Soft Suede
Petal Pink
Versamark
Blend: Soft Suede dk, Petal Pink light
Accessories
Big Shot
Layering Ovals
Stitched Shapes
3/8″ Gold edged ribbon
Rhinestones
Gold EP/ embossing buddy/heat tool

Christmas Card #15 Black and White Farmhouse Christmas

Hey Guys!

I love when I design a card and it turns out great!  I get so worried when I am designing on my own, I ‘think’ it turns out good, but have to ask everyone I know what they think, just to be sure!

Here is the card:

I love how this looks like a photo with a tree on the side. I used the Colorful Seasons Die to get the scalloped edge, I cut both the white and the Silver Glimmer to go behind it.  In person, this is really pretty and shiny!  Basic Gray is on the inside to offset the Silver, it is a great look!  I love how stamping the house and tree in the ‘picture’ is an easy way to use this stamp set, and just cut out the tree and your card is just about ready!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Supplies:

Stamp set: Farmhouse Christmas, Star of Light, Winter Woods
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White 4” x 11”, Whisper White 3 ½” x 3 ¾”, 3” x 3 ½”, 3 ¼” x 3” (for black and white house),
Silver Glimmer 3 3/8” x 3 3/16”, 4” x1 ½”, Basic Gray 4” x 5 3/8”
Inks: Basic Gray, Shaded Spruce, Memento Black
Misc: Big Shot, Seasonal Layers thinlits, Dimensionals, Metallic Pearls, sponges, Wink of Stella

This is one of my favorites that I designed! I hope you like it too!!

Below are pictures of the supplies used for this card, click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store! I would love to be your Demonstrator if you live in the US.

Thank you for stopping by, please come back and see me!
