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)

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

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!

Just Breathe

Hey Guys!

Today I’m sharing with you a card that was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest (it was a rival stamp company), I thought that Stampin’ Up! Stamps would be GORgeous! I used Layered with Kindness, it is a DISTinkTive set! Do you know what that means? SU! has a patent pending for a VERY beautiful way to make stamps look realistic! LOVE them!

These leaves are stunning!

Every time I stamp with a DISTinkTive stamp set I am in awe. You’ll have to tell me if you have used them, what you think. If you want to check them out, go ahead and place an order… look for this sign:
