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″

Inks

Soft Suede
Pretty Peacock
Balmy Blue
Memento
Accessories

Dimensionals

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!!  🙂

Thank you for stopping by!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Special Fold Card using the Retiring set Beach Happy

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that has a special Fold.  I used the Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Beach Happy.  This is retiring at the end of the month, so if you want to get it, don’t dilly dally!!

I really love this set…….I don’t usually hang onto my retiring stamps but this one I am not letting go!  🙂

Here is my card:

The white Sentiment is really a tab that sticks into the other side of the card and it holds the card closed.

Here you can see how it looks partially open.

Isn’t this is so pretty!!? I got this idea from Debbie Naylor, you can see her card here.  Debbie’s is a little different, she adhered her flap to the back, I wanted mine to open up fully.

I LOVE palms, seeing them makes me happy! Probably because I took them for granted while growing up in SoCal I never appreciated them until I don’t have them everywhere!  My hubby has some in our yard to bring me joy!

I made a Hedgehog with a flower stamp!  I’ve seen this done over a year ago, and FINALLY decided to make one.  These are so cute it was always on my list to make one.  So happy with how it came out! Here is my card:

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
