Star Wars Birthday card-Punch Art

Hey Guys!

Ever year I make a Star Wars Themed Birthday card, you can see one here, here and here. So, after MUCH thought and stress……(I am NOT a Star War fan myself) this is the card I made this year:

And the inside:

To make this card I used only current supplies from Stampin’ Up!, I took a picture of all the dies all ready to go (except for one triangle that I had to fussy cut to get it the right way).


Funny how this goes each and every year……
I think for MONTHS trying to think which Character I can make, then it gets down to the wire. So, after a lot of research, I finally pick which one I’ll do. It’s trial and error, but it ends up a labor of love. My daughter is going to frame all of them at some point, so I want them to be worthy!
Of course, when Isaac goes to open the card, he BARELY pays attention to the card at all! He is just too excited about the $5.00 I always put inside. Then, my daughter calls him back after he runs off with the cash, and makes him look at the card! hahahaha Eventually, I figure that he will appreciate the effort taken for the cards, but for now I know that MY baby girl loves them! 🙂
Any ideas for me for NEXT year? It’s never too early to start planning!

As usual, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Wiggle Worm (for Happy Birthday)

Inks:
Memento Black
White Craft

Paper:
Basic Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scraps for all the pieces
Silver Foil 5 1/4″ x 4″, 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″

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)
Balmy Blue
Soft Suede (marker and ink pad)
Pacific Point
Crushed Curry (marker)

Paper:

Third FREE card for buying the Painted Poppies stamp set!

Hey Guys!

Hopefully, you’ve been following along with my cards that I will do in a free class when you purchase the Painted Poppies Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! And, if you buy the bundle you can make FIVE cards! The last 2 posts I have been showing you the cards that we will be doing.

First off, can I say how much I LOVE this stamp set!? It is super pretty and the way SU! brought so many cool things that coordinate with it make it even that much better! Every time I get on Pinterest, I find something else that I want to do, or am inspired to make.

Secondly, I love that Stampin’ Up! is always encouraging us demonstrators to do well in our business. They gave us a challenge to sell a certain number of this set, and being that it is so cool, I doubt I will have any trouble! It was first on my list to buy and I’ve heard others say the same thing.

Enough Talk! Here is the 3rd card you can make with me:

Simple but very elegant, right? I love how the DSP brings out the color of the Poppy.

Here is the inside:

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp sets:
Painted Poppies Bundle
Peaceful Moments

Inks:
Memento Black
Gorgeous Grape
Highland Heather/Mossy Meadow Blends

Paper:
Gorgeous Grape 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 2 1/2″ x 3 5/8″
Basic Black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2), scraps for 4 swirlies on sides (from Die)
Perennial Essence DSP 5″ x 3 3/4″
Shimmering White 3 3/8″ x 2 1/4″
Very Vanilla 5″ x 3 3/4″

Misc:
Noble Peacock Rhinestones
Dimensionals
Wink of Stella

As you can see, Elegance doesn’t have to be hard! I love the touches of the black swirls (Die) on the sides, really sets off the flower, don’t you think? Plus the Wink of Stella adds just that POP that this card needs!

Below you will see all the supplies in picture form. If you click on any of the pics you will be taken to my OnLine Store! IF you decide to purchase this set from me, you are invited to my class where you will make either 3 cards OR 5 if you purchase the bundle! Live too far away?

More Free Cards if you purchase Painted Poppies

Hey Guys!

Here I am again! Are you ready to see a card I made using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Painted Poppies? First, let me tell you that I have been challenged by SU! to sell a certain number of Painted Poppies. Second, I am really not thinking this is much of a Challenge since this set is STINKIN’ CUTE!

But, since this IS a challenge I thought I would add some incentives to purchase from me! So, I am offering 3 cards if you just buy the set AND 5 cards if you purchase the bundle. The class is FREE! You’ve already seen ONE of the cards, and I am here today to share with you a second card. Stay tuned throughout this week and next to see the others!

Here is my favorite that we are doing:

Isn’t this stunning?! It is a very simple card, but boy, does it pack a punch! I used one of the dies from the set, to make the swirly circle-ish image for the sentiment to sit on. Are you like me? Do you LOVE seeing things like this! I hope so, because my card for tomorrow has even more fabulousness! Is that a word, or did I just make it up!? Since the DSP has Granny Apple Green in it, this was perfect for my Granny Apple Green Ribbon. I also added the same color green for my Rhinestones, plus some Highland Heather Rhinestones. It’s like SU! made this paper just for the sparkly add ons!

Knowing that you like to have the specifics for the cards I post, here it is!

Stamps:
Painted Poppies
Honey Bee
So Sentimental (for inside)

Inks:
Memento Black
Granny Apple Green & Highland Heather Markers

Paper:
Granny Apple Green 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 1″ circle
Blackberry Bliss 5 1/4″ x 4″, 1/2″ x 3 3/4 (for inside)
Peaceful Poppies DSP 5″ x 3 3/4″, 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ (for inside)
Basic Black scrap for swirly cut out for sentiment (die), 3 3/4″ x 3/4″ (for under ribbon)
Whisper white 5″ x 3 /4″

Misc:
Granny Apple Green ribbon
Noble Peacock Rhinestones
Dimensionals

Here is a picture of the inside:

Since I love the sentiment so much, here is a close up of it!:

To do this, I inked up the stamp with Granny Apple Green. Then I dotted the last word with a Blackberry Bliss Marker, huffed on it, since it dries a little when coloring and stamped it. Didn’t it turn out so cute! I was so tickled that I made ‘confetti’ on my stamp! I’m such a goober! 🙂

The strip at the bottom is a piece of the DSP mounted on a black strip. Perfect touch if you ask me!

Hope you have enjoyed today’s post! If you are interested in getting this class in the mail, or in person let me know! I live in the US and if you are looking for a Demonstrator I would love to help you find your creativity!

Below you will see, in picture form all the supplies needed for this card. Click on any of them and you will be taken to my OnLine Store. Any purchase you make from me, you will receive 40 +/- tutorials! Each month I have new tutorials, so feel free in continuing to purchase from me, you will love the tutorials!

Parisian Framed Sampler Occasions 2020

Hey Guys!

Today, I am sharing with you a Sampler that I found from Joanne Mulligan…..changed it up a LITTLE, but still wanted to give her credit!

Here is her piece:

First, I changed the background to black, changed up some of the sentiments, did the flower in right corner and Eiffel Tower different, Then I changed the background layer to some of the pieces.

Secondly, for the Eiffel Tower and the right top corner flower I stamped them on White then colored them with a Smoky Slate Combo Blends. I also added a BUNCH of Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems that I have been hoarding (I’m not the only one that does that, am I?) plus some Champagne Rhinestones……can’t have too much bling, right? MOST of the bottom layer is Champagne Foil for all but the small Blue squares.

To make lining this up MUCH easier, I first put the pieces already done onto a piece of 11 1/2″ sq piece of black cardstock, each outside piece goes to the edge of the black. then this was put onto a piece of 12 x 12 black. It really takes away the guesswork and stress of getting them in the proper position. Stampin’ Up! has retired the Black 12 x 12, thankfully I have some left over.

Measurements for this are: ***
Top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right are 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
All square small pieces are 2 3/4″ sq
Middle piece is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
*** this is for the Base pieces only, take off 1/8″ – 1/4″ for layers over the base.

I hope you like my take of Joanne’s great sampler! There will be a Special class either this month, or next month. The cost will be either $30.00 for my team members or $35.00 for those who aren’t. Of course everything will be pre-cut for you to complete this! To be expected, you will be doing your own stamping! What’s a Stampin’ Up! class without stamping?!

Below, you will find all the product that I used for this Sampler, click on any of the images to be taken to my OnLine store! If you shop with me, I will be sending you a file with over 30 tutorials for you to use!

Storybook Ducks aka Fable Friends

Today I am sharing with you a card I made that reminds me of my childhood!  I always loved to read, I would look through books ALL the time!  I also love to see baby ducks….well let’s be honest, I love all babies!

Here is my card:

I love the colors of this card!  I used the blends to color the ducks and their outfits.  My girls absolutely LOVED this card!!

Here’s the inside:

The momma is just waiting for them to catch up!  🙂

Here are the particulars for this card:

Puzzle Card

Hey Guys!

I was on the fence a long time before I decided to get the Love You To Pieces stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I really love it, the sentiments are too cute!

Here is my card:

I used Designer Series paper for the main picture, you can’t beat the Petal Promenade Paper!

Here are the specifics  for this card:

PROJECT 1: Puzzle
Stamp Sets Pg #
Love you to pieces Bundle
Well Said
Paper
Rich Razzleberry 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3 1/2″ sq, 3 5/8″ sq
White 3 1/2″ sq, scraps 2 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Petal Promenade 3 1/2″ sq
Flirty Flamingo 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Inks
Rich Razzleberry
Accessories
 Big Shot, Clear EP, Heat Tool
Tear n Tape
Polka Dot Tulle ribbon
Rich Razzleberry Velvet ribbon
Tombo Multi Purpose glue
Dimensionals

I recommend putting the DSP onto a piece that’s the same size of thick Whisper White.  This helps it not be so fragile when you run it through the Big Shot with the Puzzle Die.  Then turn it over, put Tear N Tape on the back to help hold it together, but skip the one piece you want to be missing.

Below are the supplies that I used to make this card, click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  I would LOVE to be your SU! Demo if you live in the U.S.!  For every OnLine order I send you a small gift as a token of my appreciation! You can pick this card if you would like it!  If I still have it in my possession I will send it to you!  Just let me know which card you want.

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Here are the specifics for this card:
