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)
  • Inks
  • Soft Suede
  • Versamark
  • Paper
  • Garden Green 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″

  • Soft Suede 3 1/4″ sq.

I made my own Fall Ink Pad, you can too!

Hey Guys!

Today I am going to show you how I made my own Fall ink pad so that leaves on my tree look natural, when I am done you’ll be able to also!! Of course, I made a video you can go here if you would like to SEE how I made it! Naturally, I tend to look at pictures and if I have questions a video helps me out a lot. As an example, here is a picture of my card:

See how the leaves are THREE different colors! That’s my own Fall ink pad!
My own Fall ink pad was used for the inside too!

So, how did I make my fall ink pad? To begin with I had a dirty, yucky Versamark pad that I never used and thought of chucking it in the trash……but no, I could make my own Fall ink pad so my tree will look gorgeous AND match the colors I was using for this card!

My own Fall ink pad made from an OLD Versamark pad!

Since I wanted the colors to match my card I used Bumble Bee, Cherry Cobbler and for the green I went with Just Jade. Already I knew that I wanted to use the Holiday Rhinestones and those used Cherry Cobbler for the red, and a yellow that looked a lot like Bumble Bee but the green was Shaded Spruce so I went with a lighter shade of color and used Just Jade instead. It’s funny how I go about figuring out which colors I use in my crafting, this time it was all about the Rhinestones……gotta have that BLING!

For a different fall project that I made a few years ago, click here!

As always here are the specifics for this card:
Stamps:
Life is Beautiful
Inks:
Bumble Bee
Cinnamon Cider
Cherry Cobbler re-inker
Just Jade re-inker
Bumble Bee re-inker
OLD Versamark pad (you can use new!)

Misc:

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

NEW SU! product you can get now!

Hey Guys!

So, Stampin’ Up! has NEW product we can buy now from the upcoming catalog! Of course, I HAD to buy it, I mean twist my arm a little harder. 🙂 Here is a video you can watch to see the full Suite.

I have made three cards, today I am sharing with you one of them.

It is funny how you start out with one idea in your head, and it morphs into something else. The first thing I did was do the scallop edges on the top of a piece of Pretty Peacock, I didn’t realize at first that it was a border die…once I figured that out (duh) I ran it through again to make a strip so both edges are scalloped.

Then, I thought I would use one of the small dies to put in the middle. Well, that turned out very pretty!

Now what to do with it? There was a strip of the Noble peacock Foil sitting next to me, Put it behind the image and that was great! Then I thought that the embossing folder would be so pretty using that same foil paper, and it was! But I needed it to pop, so I got my StazOn black and rubbed it over the flowers in places to get it to shine! Well? What do you think?

As always, here are the particulars for this card:

Stamps:
Ornate Thanks

Inks:
StazOn Black (the Memento won’t stick to the foil)
Versamark

Paper:
Granny Apple Green 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Pretty Peacock 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
Noble Peacock Foil 4″ x 1″, 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, scrap for leaves I got from die

Misc:
Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder
Noble Peacock Rhinestones
Glitter Black Embossing Powder
Ornate Borders Dies
Ornate Layers Dies
Liquid Glue

I’ve lagged behind on my blog posts, so sorry! Who says that if they had ‘enough time’ they would get a ton done!? Well, WE all have time now, what have you been doing with that time? I AM stamping, tried out Zoom (great tool for keeping in touch and getting to SEE everyone!), been watching a ton of tv……How about you?

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We are lucky, my husband and I can work from home, but our Son’s job wants him to come in and it is NOT a crucial job. He feels like he HAS to go since he needs to pay his bills. 🙁

I made a Hedgehog with a flower stamp!  I’ve seen this done over a year ago, and FINALLY decided to make one.  These are so cute it was always on my list to make one.  So happy with how it came out! Here is my card:

I thought that embossing the Tree Rings on Soft Suede using Gold Embossing Powder would be really pretty. This is so stunning in person!  This is a card we’ll be doing in my kid card class. This, in my opinion, would be great for a teen girl.  I would love getting this, wouldn’t you!?

Beautiful Promenade with Silver

Hey Guys!

Happy New Year!  Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year.  I’m excited to see what the New Year Brings, are you?

Here is another card that I saw on Pinterest that I HAD to copy! The idea came from Robyn Cardon, I added the ribbon/changed the color, but the rest of the idea came from her!

This is my first time using the New Lovely Lipstick in the In Colors. I really like it!  The picture makes it look more like Melon Mambo, but it has more red than pink to it.

I used Silver Embossing powder to make it pop, and added the ribbon.

Vellum, Roses and Silver Oh My!

Hey Guys!

Here is another beautiful yet simple card!

This card is inspired by one I saw on Pinterest by Kristine McNickle.  I LOVE Basic Gray and Grapefruit Grove  together!  It is a great pairing, don’t you think?  See that cut out at the bottom? When the card is closed you can see the Grapefruit Grove peeking through.  It is a pretty design element.  The square floral paper is Designer Series Paper!  Such a pretty and easy way to bring elegance to a card.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with White Embossing powder.

The Beautiful Promenade stamp set, has a thinlit that goes with it called Beautiful Layers.  This is where I got the feature at the base of the card.  You can get 10% off the Bundle when you purchase both the stamp set and the thinlits.  My next post will have another thinlit from this set, so check back in!!

Sneak Peek!! Amazing Life

Hey Guys!

Sorry it’s been a couple weeks, ok maybe longer…… I went to Orlando to attend the Stampin’ Up! ON Stage get together that SU! Demo’s attend.  I had such a great time! It was great rooming with my ‘SU! Besties’ (my girl friends and I only meet up at SU! functions) and learning/seeing all the new things coming out in January!!  I then spent a week with my Husband in Orlando for our 30th Anniversary!  The bummer is that I got sick the day after he got there. 🙁  I am STILL sick, and it’s been a MONTH!  Hence the reason why I haven’t been posting!

The card I am sharing with you today is from a stamp (Amazing Life) that we got for FREE while at OnStage!   I came up with this all on my own!!  I LOVE making my own designs, but time allowances don’t always make it to where I can do it.

I used this stamp from the set:

Doesn’t look like much right?

Well, I stamped it along the bottom with the two swirls going down, in Soft Suede ink. Repeated it along the bottom, lining up the swirls so they touched, then flipped the stamp over and lined up the two lines that are in the middle of the stamp.  I repeated this on top of the ones I stamped along the bottom and then flipped the stamp so the swirls were on the bottom again, and started all over to make a pattern!

After making the pattern, I stamped the 3 dot stamp in Petal Pink between the stamped pattern.  Don’t you LOVE how it came out!?  I was so tickled to see the beautiful pattern that this stamp made!!  If you watch the video I made you can see how It was done, if this doesn’t make sense.  I used other stamps for other designs, so be sure and check it out!

Here are the particulars for this card:

Paper
Petal Pink 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3/4″ x 3 7/8″, scrap
Gold Foil 4″ x 5 1/4″ (x2), scrap
Vanilla 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2)
Inks
Soft Suede
Petal Pink
Versamark
Blend: Soft Suede dk, Petal Pink light

If you live in the US and are in need of a Demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! I would love to be yours!  If you are looking into joining SU!, join my team!  We have a lot of fun and I would love to have you be part of my SU! family!
