Happy, Happy, Happy Meer Kats!

Hey Guys!

I’m sure I am not the only one who loves the Stampin’ Up! stamp set The Gang’s All Meer! This stamp set makes me smile. It’s easy to create a card using these happy little guys. Saw this card on Pinterest and decided to jump off from Christine’s card, here is her card:

To make it mine, I decided to change it up a bit:

I love layers, almost every card I make has at least one layer, most have more! Do you find it as hard as I do to NOT have layers? Or to even make a card without doodads all over it…….that’s me in a nutshell!

The inside of the card is super cute too!

Look at that smirk! Too cute!!

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

Cutest kid card EVER!

Hey Guys!

Are kid cards hard for you to make? I am challenged with kid and masculine cards……not sure why, Stampin’ Up! makes it easy, I guess it’s because I am not drawn to kid stamps. But, the Wiggle Worm bundle really called to me! They are just so stinkin’ cute! Don’t you think?

With this in mind, looking at the stamp set and dies, the Bugs are super cute, add in the grass and mushrooms and this card practically made itself! Don’t you love the clouds too?! There is ONE problem that I have with this card, the bare space towards the bottom right is bugging me! Ha! Pun not intended! Would you add something more? For the inside I used the little flying bugs, and thought of adding one to that space, but am afraid that I will over do it.

Speaking of the inside here it is!

For the class on the 3rd Wednesday (of every month at 1:00) at our local Senior Enrichment Center, the subject is ‘kids’, so I decided to do this one! Would you add one of the little bugs to the front? Or are you like me and say ‘less is more’ and let it shine on it’s own? Please let me know what you think!

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Wiggle Worm

Inks:
Memento Black
Versamark
Merry Merlot
Blends: Highland Heather combo, Balmy Blue Lt

Paper:
Highland Heather 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Merry Merlot 5 1/4″ x 4″ scraps for mushrooms
Balmy Blue 5″ x 3 3/4″
Whisper White 5″ x 3 3/4″, scraps for sentiment
Garden Green scraps for grass

Misc:
Chalk Marker
White Embossing Powder
Heat tool
Wink of Stella
Dimensionals

So, what do you think? Do you agree with me? That these bugs are just too cute!? My favorite part is the Mushrooms! They just make me smile.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Come back later in week to see what ELSE I am making in the Kid class! Keep in mind that I’m not always talking about ‘little’ kids! My Granddaughter will LOVE the one I’ll show you later! Am I a stinker trying to entice you to come back?! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! If you are looking for a Demo in the United States, I will do whatever I can do to help you make your own creations! Below you will see all the supplies in picture form, click on any of them to be taken to my OnLine Store! For every order you make from $35 + you will receive from me 2 sets of Tutorials of over 45 just as my thank you!

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″
White 5″ x 3 3/4″, scrap for sailboat and sentiment
Inks
Crumb Cake
Soft Suede
Pretty Peacock
Balmy Blue
Memento
Accessories
Big Shot
Wink of Stella
Dimensionals
window sheets for clouds

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!

Rooted in Nature beach scene

Hey Guys!

I love my Job!  I get to make beautiful handmade cards AND show others how to do it! After my classes everyone is so happy with what they have made!

I got this idea from Cindy Elam, I found it on Pinterest and changed up a little, here is her card:

I LOVE layers, I wanted to add to this beautiful card.  Here is what I came up with:

Here are the specifics for this card:

Beautiful You is Flying High

Hey Guys,

Today I am sharing with you a card I found on Pinterest and I CASE’d it.  I can’t find it to show you, if you have seen it and know where I got this idea I would love if you would let me know.

Here is my card:

I masked the Lady after stamping her, then sponged the sky and stamped the trees.  I then colored her, this makes it look like she is in front of the trees.  The balloons were punched out with the balloon punch using Vellum which I then sponged with the color I wanted.  I put the white line in the balloon with the Chalk Marker, I placed a glue dot behind this chalk line to attach.  You can’t see it!  Of course I put another glue dot behind the black line for the ‘string’.  It’s a challenge to find spots to put your adhesive with Vellum because you don’t want it to be seen.

This was a really fun card, and my class loved it!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Beautiful You
Sheltering Tree
Colorful Seasons
Paper
Highland Heather 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)

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!
