I have been using it a lot ’cause I love it so much! If you missed my last Live you can catch it here! Also, I did a Blog post and that can be found here!

Free Donkey set Fancy Fold!

Of course I did a SECOND card for my Mini Class! And I also used the Free Donkey set!

Free Donkey stamp set on Memories & More gift card

First off, I wanted to tell you that I also used, along with the Donkey, the dies from the Bundle Ride the Range. I will be using this bundle for my next YouTube Live on Thursday January 14th! I hope you can join me. Also, I used some Free Designer Series Paper that comes in the Sale-a-Bration catalog as a bundle itself called Berry Blessings Stamp set + Berry Delightful Stamp set.

Secondly, as usual I am providing all the details needed to make BOTH projects:

  • Stamp sets:
  • Darling Donkeys
  • Many Messages
  • Inks:
  • Memento Black
  • Garden Green
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Blends:
  • Soft Suede
  • Smoky Slate
  • Color Lifter
  • Paper:
  • Basic Black: 12″ x 5 1/2″ (base), 5 1/2″ x 2 18″ (for panels) For Base you will lay it on your cutter/trimmer portrait and place the edge along the 3/4″ line and cut from the 1″ to 5″, pick up cutter and cut from 7″ to 11″, repeat for other side. Then place on trimmer Landscape and you will SCORE only on the outside edge (between the cut and edge), score on 1″, 5″, 7″ & 11″. Keep in Landscape and score ALL THE WAY across on 2″, 4″ 8″ & 10″. You will fold them on the outside edges mountain, valley, mountain valley (this is the same on both sides working towards the middle) Do both top and bottom. Inside flap gets folded mountain, valley, valley, mountain.
  • Granny Apple Green: 3 7/8″ sq. (back panel), 8″ x 3 7/8″ for middle scene, 5/8″ x 7/8″ (x8) for bottom and top small edges, 4 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ (for gift card)
  • Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper: cut 4″ x 5 3/8″ (turn and cut @ 2″ in half so they will line up), 4″ x 5 3/8″ for front panels when card is closed. 5/8″ x 1 7/8″ for adding to the tip and bottom small panels. And 4 1/4″ x 2″ for envelope flap
  • Memories & More Cards & Envelopes: I used a gift card/Envelope for small Donkey card.
  • White: 4″ x 3″ inside the Gift card
  • Misc:
  • Open Range Dies
  • Many Messages Dies
  • Layering Circle Dies
  • Stitched Shapes Dies (for sentiment donkey is kicking)
  • Holiday Rhinestones
  • Liquid Glue
  • Paper Trimmer

As you already know if you follow me and my blog, all the supplies will be listed below, click on any of the pictures and you will be taken to my OnLine Store! For any purchase of $35 or more you will receive from me the class packet for the class I am detailing today, which will include all the cardstock, die cuts (not the sentiments since that is not allowed per SU!) but I can send you the one die cut for the sentiment that the donkey is kicking since that is stamped with the stamp set and not the Many Messages. Also, you will get the Rhinestones and I will pre cut/score for the main card and die cut the circle for the gift card! The one thing I can not do is stamp anything.

BUT the great thing is it’s Sale-a-Bration now and you can get MORE than you would normally! Spend $50 and you can pick out that CUTE Darling Donkey set for FREE! This is while supplies last, so don’t wait! Furthermore, you will get the 16 project ideas in a PDF that has step by step instructions and pictures….hint, my Home decor item is what I made!! So you will have the measurements for that too!

Thank you for all your support! I so appreciate you joining me on my Live classes and for those who can’t watch live I appreciate you watching it later!

If you are in need of a catalog, let me know and I will get one right out to you!

Love ya!

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

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!

Please come back again!
