How much fun can one card be!?

Hey Guys!

The card I am showing you today is so much fun to make! Have you ever said: How much fun can one card be!? This stamp set (Ornamental Envelopes) has SO MANY ways to use it! Versatile is just ONE way to describe it! This set has ornaments, corner pieces, dies that let you decorate your envelope, and so much more! For today I am showing off the wreath I made. You can watch my video here to see how I did it.

One card = Too much fun!

By the way, I also shared on my video how to use the Stamparatus to get your stamps straight! Don’t you hate it when you finish a card and go to stamp the sentiment and it is crooked! Then you have to get creative to cover it up or start over! Well, I show you how to never deal with that again!

As always here is the list of things I used to make this card:

  • Stamps
  • Ornamental Envelopes
  • For Unto Us (inside greeting)
  • Here’s a card (front sentiment)

Who’s that Doggy in the Window!

Hey Guys,

To begin with, I saw a card on Pinterest that had this fold, which is called a Bay Window. But of course, I had to change it up, so I made one with dogs from Playful Pets that I call “Who’s the doggy in the window”!? By the way, the dog that looks like a Yorkie looks like my puppy and he is always looking out the window waiting for us to come home! By the way, I did a video showing how to make this card, you can catch it here. If you love animals, I have another card using this same set but with cats, you can see it here!

First off, this card is not the regular size that I make. But, it has too much in it to make it smaller. Because of this, I decided to keep it big, so the size is 5 3/4″ x 8 1/4″. Once you see it, you’ll agree with me that the size NEEDS to be big! 🙂

Technique called Bay Window: Who’s that Doggy in the window!?
Aren’t those the cutest doggies in the window!?

Of course, I had to find a sentiment that went with my best friend loving me, so I am using the Beauty Abounds stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Subsequently it says “A friend is someone who chooses you….out of a whole world of people” And who doesn’t love you more than a dog, so it’s perfect for a friend card!

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Beauty Abounds

Inks:
Memento Black

Paper:
Real Red 5 3/4″ x 81/4″ (x2) ONE is scored at 1/2″, 3 1/2″ turn card and score again at 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ , 2 1/2″ sq (x 4)
Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP) 2 7/8″ x 5 5/8″ (x2), 1 3/16″ x 5 5/8″, 4 1/8″ x 5 5/8″, 3 3/8″ x 5 5/8″
Black 3 1/8″ x 4 3/8″ , 1 1/8″ x 2 1/2″
Whisper White 2 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ (x2)

Get double duty from your stamp sets

Get double duty from your stamp sets by using them for both card-making and scrap-booking!

Hey Guys!

First off, I am going to take you back to my childhood and hear my Mom’s words that Christmas shouldn’t have commercials until AFTER Thanksgiving! So, in that vein, should Halloween be shown now? Of course, I believe it should be since I am doing it! Generally, Halloween is my favorite Holiday to scrapbook so I thought I would make a card using the stamp sets I get EVERY year so I get double duty out of them. Here is what I made:

Get double duty from your stamp sets!
Get double duty from your stamp sets!

For some reason, Halloween is my Favorite time of year. Funny thing, I named a blog post that, check it out here! Is it because the air is cooler, or the candy? I say it is because it is so much fun to scrapbook, every year I have to do a NEW page! Since it would not be good to have the same layout in the same book. Well, I thought that my Halloween stamps would make a great card too! Of course my grand-kids love getting mail, so this is perfect! Besides, might as well get double duty from my stamp sets, right? By the way the stamp set I used is called Hallows Night Magic from Stampin’ Up!

As always, here is the specifics for this card:

  • Stamps: Hallows Night Magic Bundle
  • Inks: Pretty Peacock, Memento Black
  • Blends: Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green
  • Paper: Basic Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, Very Vanilla 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2) 5″ x 3 3/4″, scrap, Black Glitter 5 1/4″ x 4″ (I cut out center so I can use it later), 4 1/2″ x 2 2/3″ (for behind label), Magic in This Night DSP 5″ x 3 3/4″, scrap for inside.
  • Misc: Iridescent Pearls, dimensionals, 1 1/2″ Metallic Mesh ribbon

Ordinarily I tell you that you can find the supplies listed above in picture form below, and today is no exception! Therefore, click on any of them and you will be taken to my OnLine Store. In brief, if you purchase $35 or more at my store you will get from me a PDF with 16 projects which include step by step instructions and pictures! For instance, you can see a sneak peek below:

Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Hey Guys!,

It’s July! You know what that means! I usually do Christmas in July. This year is no different. Today I am participating in a blog hop! I don’t usually do this, so you’ll have to let me know if you enjoy it!

Today I am sharing with you a card I did using Stampin’ Up!’s Bundle Snowflake Wishes! I LOVE this Suite to be honest! I bought the whole thing! The Glimmer Balmy Blue paper is sooooo pretty! There are only two things in the Suite I didn’t use on this and that is the Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ ribbon and the Winter Snow embossing folder. I’m adding it to the pictures below so if YOU want to use it for this card you can!

Here is my card:

Snowflake Wishes Christmas in July

Doesn’t the Highland Heather just make this pop! I love all the sparkle this card has in person! It’s too bad you can’t see it, oh!, wait! you can! I made a video showing this card! You can see the video here!

For another Christmas card in July using this same Suite you can see it here. I also made a video doing that card which you can catch here.

Here is the inside to my card:

For the scores on the sides of the white cardstock (can’t see in the picture, but it really makes this card) I started at 3/8″ and then did three lines in a row, turned the cardstock and did the same on the opposite side. It really adds some interest, don’t you think? I also popped up this layer since it makes the DSP underneath really shine! Of course I had to add the Blue Adhesive backed Gems!

I hope you have enjoyed this post! Please stop back in, I will be posting regularly now! Don’t forget to sign up for my Newsletter! I send out good ideas!

You Can Emboss with that?!

Hey Guys!

Did you know that you can emboss with water?! What!? I didn’t think it was possible, but I accidentally dripped water on a project I was Gold embossing, as I poured the powder, the water took it too and it embossed along with the Versamark!

So, of course I HAD to try it with JUST water, and you guessed it……it embossed! You can see the video of this card here. Here is a picture of my project:

The Gold spots are where I embossed with WATER!
The inside of my Water embossed card!

To get the ‘silver’ look on the background, I used a Sponge Brayer and the Frost White Shimmer Paint and applied it to the Birch Background stamp from Stampin’ Up! On black the ‘white’ looks more silver, therefore this card has both Silver & Gold! Every time I say that, I want to break into song singing “Silver & Gold, Silver & Gold”! I ‘think’ it’s from Rudolph the cartoon, do you know?

I also embossed the tag with Gold and used the Banners Pick a Punch to get the tag perfect! For the Stamp set, I used the Beautiful World Bundle. LOVE this set!

If you would like to see another embossing technique you can check it out here!

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Beautiful World Bundle
Birch

Inks:
Versamark
Misty Moonlight
Blends: Misty Moonlight (light)

Paper:
Misty Moonlight 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scrap for behind the map
Gold Foil 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
Silver Foil
Basic Black 5″ x 3 3/4″ (x2), scrap for map, 2 strips for behind sentiment & behind cut out on the inside
Whisper White 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″

Misc:

Olde Tyme Christmas

Hey Guys!

Easy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card to wow your friends and family! Stamping, tearing & sponging is all it takes to make this beautiful card!

Today I am sharing with you an Olde Tyme Christmas Card! This handmade card uses the NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Snow Wonder. This will wow your friends and family! First, when stamped the image has a lot of hash marks and that, to me, looks like it is an Old Fashioned drawing. Second I tried to emboss it with white and see what it looked like…..not so great! The hash marks made it all bunch up and it had no definition.

As a result, I then tried it in Early Espresso and WOW that looked so good! Colored the carrot, hat and scarf with my Stampin’ Blends, using light colors. As long as I used light colors it didn’t take away from the Olde Tyme Christmas look. Since I was making it look older I tore the paper (after stamping everything else) and sponged Early Espresso on the edges!

EAsy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card
Easy and fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card

Since I colored the scarf with Bashful Blue, I thought pulling in that color would be pretty on the ribbon in the corners. So, I colored the ribbon with a Bashful Blue Dark Blend, popped up the image on a piece I stamped with Buffalo Check and wrapped it on the corners. In the same vein, did you notice that I used an antique slide on the ribbon at the top?! I think that added a more Olde Tyme feel to it! To sum up, for the base I used more of the Bashful Blue to pull it all together! What do you think?

It’s a Mystery Fold!

Hey Guys!

I’m on a roll! I’ve done 4 videos in 4 weeks! You can go to my YouTube channel to see the other videos I’ve done. To see this cards video you can click here. Looking OnLine I saw this fold card from Etsy, she was charging to make that card, and I figured I would try to figure it out on my own. And I did! What is great is that it fits into one of Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes and I made it work! After I saw this on Etsy, I saw someone else from Europe do the same cut but their cards are bigger than the United States so I’m even more proud that I figured it out by myself! Here is my card:

This is the card open. Isn’t that dog stinkin’ cute!? Love that I got the fold idea from Etsy!

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″
Vellum scrap for lined piece on face (black behind it)
Whisper White scraps (I printed the sayings), 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″

Misc:
Layering Circle Dies – 2nd from Biggest
Layering Square Dies – 4th smallest
Layering Oval Dies – 2nd from Biggest
Lakeside Dies
3/4″ circle punch
Detailed Trio Punch
Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder
Metallic Brads
Dimensionals
Sponges

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
