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!

Another CUTE kid card!

Hey Guys!

In my last post I showed you a really cute bug card for a kid in your life. Today I am going to show you a card for an older kid using the Stampin’ Up! Bundle Grace’s Garden. Let me tell you this set called to me for MONTHS and I finally broke down and bought it two weeks ago! Normally, I try not to buy too much from the Occasions Catalog, but this time there was just too many things that I fell in love with, so of course I overdid it! The great thing is that this set I can keep forever because it will work great in Scrapbooking!

Isn’t this so cute?!! I love the kitty saying ‘hello’ to the bird! I choose to believe that is what he is doing! LOL I have owned a cat that looks like this kitty, her name was Pepper (after my daughter’s imaginary friend when she was little!)

Are you like me? Do you love fencing/gates or anything like it on a card? I think it really adds a lot! This idea came from KB Papercraft on Pinterest. Changing up the background paper to use the really pretty So Very Vellum DSP in the Sale-A-Bration catalog! Vellum is something I absolutely LOVE working with. To make the Vellum stand out even more I layered under it Pear Pizzazz cardstock, this makes it be more vibrant. The sentiment is different on mine too, I love to use Dies to set it off.

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Grace’s Garden Bundle

Inks:
Memento Black
Pear Pizzazz
Balmy Blue
Blends: Real Red D, Granny Apple Green L, Calypso Coral L, Smoky Slate D, Basic Black D

Paper:
Balmy Blue 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ (x2), 1″ x 5 1/2″, 3″ for circle, scraps for sentiment, cat, bird and gate
Pear Pizzazz 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″
So Very Vellum DSP 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″

Misc:
Mini Dimensionals (cut in half)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Stitched Shapes Dies
Sponges

Memento Black

Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scrap for swirl

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!

Christmas in July Final Card #6

Hey guys,

I’ve been sharing with you all the Christmas cards I did for my Christmas in July class……hope you have liked them so far!

Today is the Bonus Card where my guests only made 1 of this one. The reason is because I would have had to buy at LEAST 4 – 5 packages just for this one Designer paper since I had 10 people come and if they each did 3, well you do the math!

This was one of my favorites that we made.  I love plaid and the green with the blue is so pretty!  Plus the trees stamped on the front really remind me of picking out Christmas trees!  Does it you?

Here is the front of the card:

And the inside:

Isn’t this a pretty card!?

I added Wink of Stella under the trees on the front and under the one on the inside to give it the ‘snowy’ feeling.¬† One of the trees is popped up on the front to add dimension.

The supplies are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!   This is the end of my Christmas cards, be sure to come back to see what I make next time!

Thank you for supporting me!

Rainbows and Unicorns!

Hey Guys!

Today I have a really fun and super cute card!¬† I LOVE rainbows, but who doesn’t?¬† I also love Unicorns!¬† So I put them together!¬† I got this idea from Kirsten Aitchenson on Pinterest.¬† I gave the card some black to make the image pop, but otherwise it’s all her.¬† Isn’t it cute?

The Rainbow took a few minutes to cut out each color, but honestly? It didn’t take as long as I thought it would.¬† I LOVE this card!!

TIP!!:¬† Cut a small piece of white cardstock that you will use to mount your rainbow on.¬† The dimensions are 2 3/4″ x 1″.¬† Place adhesive on your white piece, and start your outer colors going down almost to the bottom of the white.¬† This will hold your rainbow together AND let you pop it off the card with dimensionals. Your white will be covered up by the cloud!

The sparkle paper is from the Myths and Magic 6″ x 6″ glimmer paper.

Here are the dimensions for this card:

Island Indigo: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, plus scrap for rainbow
Basic Black: 5 1/2″ x 3 5/8″, 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside
Soft Sky: 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White: 5″ x 3 3/4″ inside and scrap for Unicorn
Scraps for Rainbow: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Island Indigo, Perfect Plum

I colored the Rhinestones to go with the rainbow and also colored the Mane and Tail using the Blends.

I used Wink of Stella for the Unicorn.

Hope you like this as much as I do!!  Please visit my YouTube Channel to see my other creations and see how I make them.

Below are pictures of the supplies I used, click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store.  For any purchase you make with me you will receive one of my handmade cards!
