Eiffel Tower all lit up!

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a light up card! I love these! They are so much fun! Next year, I am planning on going to see the Eiffel Tower (thank God it’s not THIS year!). I saw this card where someone made a bridge with water under it, and the Tower is in the background. I am not sure that they used Stampin’ Up! stamps, so decided to make one using Parisian Beauty. Here is my card lit up:

Not only did I use the Parisian Beauty stamp set, but I used the punch Label Me Fancy! This is what I used to make the bridge. I tried so hard to make them evenly spaced, this is as close as I could get. Also, I used Wink of Stella to highlight the water to give it that bit of sparkle!! If you lay the Smoky Slate piece of cardstock onto a grid sheet or against a ruler, make marks at these spots: 5/8″, 2″ and 3 5/16, then put the punch into these spots and only go part way up (look at picture to see how far) making the marks in the middle of the punch. This way it will make your waterway!

In the light of sharing with you the lit up version, I HAD to show you the card (a little more professional pic) when it’s NOT lit up:

Of course, I used a lot of bling by using Champagne Rhinestones, because you are not always going to have it turned on! The tree came from the die Sweet Silhouettes. Sponging the So Saffron cardstock after it was die-cut with Soft Suede and Garden Green, really makes this ‘tree’ look like the sun is hitting it in spots! Make sure you leave some yellow to give it that sun kissed look!

Furthermore, I also sponged the Eiffel Tower with Soft Suede and then ran the Memento Black pad itself over parts of the sides. This was to make it look like it was antiqued. What do you think? Did I hit it, or is it a miss? For those of you who love light up cards, we are going to be making this card next week! Let me know if you want to attend!

Just Breathe

Hey Guys!

Today I’m sharing with you a card that was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest (it was a rival stamp company), I thought that Stampin’ Up! Stamps would be GORgeous! I used Layered with Kindness, it is a DISTinkTive set! Do you know what that means? SU! has a patent pending for a VERY beautiful way to make stamps look realistic! LOVE them!

These leaves are stunning!

Every time I stamp with a DISTinkTive stamp set I am in awe. You’ll have to tell me if you have used them, what you think. If you want to check them out, go ahead and place an order… look for this sign:



Would you like to see the inside of the card? I used the Label Me Lovely punch. It turned out so pretty!

As usual, I give you all the particulars for this card. All supplies will be in picture form below, click on any of them and you will be taken to my OnLine Store. For purchases $35 and over you will receive from me Tutorials with pictures of over 50 projects!

Stamps:
Layered with Kindness

Inks:

Paper:
Whisper White thick 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White 5″ x 3 3/4″ (x2), 1 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ (cut at an angle), scrap for cut out flowers
Basic Black 1 3/8″ x 4 1/4″, 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2)

Misc:

This card was pretty easy, a little bit of fussy cutting but you only cut out three flowers, that’s doable! Of course if you know me, you know I love bling…..I added a rhinestone to each flower and two at the top to add a little bit of bling on it’s own. I think if balances it out!

Who doesn’t love a Palm Tree!?

Hey Guys,

First off, I want to thank you for sticking with me. I haven’t always been consistent with my blogging, but I HAVE been consistent with my classes. If you would like to do any of my classes let me know, I love to make cards and decorations and would love to have you join me!

Second, the card I am going to show you today is one that I somewhat cased (which means that I saw a card, loved it but changed it up just a little), this one was inspired by Michele Zindorf. She is very awesome but not everyone can do what she does, so I try to bring it down to what I would hope with some guidance anyone can do! Here is her card:

My card is one that fits in a regular envelope, that was my main objective……make this card, but have it fit into an envelope I have.

What I love about her card is that you really get to see the basket weave background, since I had to make mine smaller you get a hint of that!

Here is my card:

Not sure if I have told you this in the past, but my husband has a virtual tropical paradise in our yards, here in North Carolina! I grew up in SoCal, we and go to Disney World all the time and we both love how tropical it is. So, of course I naturally gravitate towards tropical stamps…..this one REALLY called to me! I hope you love how this came out as much as I do!

Here is the inside of this card:

Now, here is the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Timeless Tropical

Inks:
Garden Green (marker and pad)

Hey Guys!

Today I thought I would share with you a card that is elegant and no stamping was used.  What?!  I know, what in the world am I doing NOT having stamps?  It just happened that way and I didn’t really notice until I was done.

I used the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper.  I really didn’t have any ideas on how to use it, but fell in love with it!  Here is my card:

The Leaf pattern going down the side is normally white, but I sponged it Granny Apple Green so it would pop on the card and show up on the White frame.

3 7/8″ x 2 7/8″

Granny Apple Green 4 3/8″ x 3 3/8″
Copper Foil 3″ x 4″
Inks
Versamark
Granny Apple Green
Accessories
Delightfully Detailed cut outs
Leaves Trinkets
Wink of Stella
Layered Leaves Folder
sponge Brayer/Dimensionals/Glue dots

You can’t see it on the card, but I went over the Laser cut outs with Wink of Stella, it adds to the elegance of the card.

A NON Christmas Card using Farmhouse Christmas

Hey Guys!

I am so excited that as a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!, that I get to purchase NEW items a month before they are available to the public!  I wanted to use them right away BUT didn’t necessarily want to do Christmas.  So, my dilemma……….how do I use these obvious Christmas sets and NOT have it be Christmas.

I got out the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set, decided to use the tree  AND the incredible fence!!  Did you see the fence!!??  I stamped the tree on Soft Suede using Early Espresso ink. This stamp set better stick around because I can use that fence for a lot of things!  Follow this link to see my video.

Isn’t it the cutest!!??  Not sure if you can see the Glitter snow in front of the fence, but in person it is very shiny and sparkly!  The tree has snow in all its crannies.  I used the Fine-Tip Glue pen to go over the white (used the chalk marker) and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the wet glue.  I forgot how much I LOVE Dazzling Diamonds!  I will be getting that out a lot more.

I stamped the ‘Love You’ from the Enjoy Life stamp set using Versamark and white embossing powder.

I layered these onto a piece of Early Espresso, but before I layered these onto white I wrapped some Burlap Ribbon around and adhered a True Gentleman button in the middle.  If you look closely you can see a Rhinestone that I colored with the Bronze Blend to go into the middle of the button (I HATE threading linen thread through those tiny holes!).  The final layer is Soft Suede to tie in all the colors.

I’m planning on doing this card in a class this month.  Hope they like it as much as I do!

Below are all the supplies I used for this card.  Click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!

Thanks for stopping by!  Check back in!  I’m adding all my cards that I do for my classes to this blog!
