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:

Petal Pink 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3/4″ x 3 7/8″, scrap

Sympathy card using Bokeh stamp

Hey Guys!

I love the Bokeh stamp from Stampin’ Up!  When I stamp with it, just looking at it makes me smile.  It is very subtle and makes me relax for some reason.  For this card I inked the image using So Saffron on one side and Soft Sea Foam on the other, then I huffed on it and stamped it in the middle of a piece of Very Vanilla.  I then stamped ‘With Sympathy’ from Flourishing Phrases in Black in the middle.

I will be teaching this in a class at our Local Senior Center in Kernersville on Wednesday.  The Gold Foil paper surrounding the Very Vanilla sets off not only the stamp but the black background.

Hope you like this card!!  All the supplies used for this card are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store! I would love if you would choose me as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator if you live in the US!

Still Night NEW Stamp set in Holiday Catalog

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you an easy card that you can make if you are in a hurry.  This can be for a man or woman!  Those type of cards are hard to come by!  I love the new Owl in the stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Still Night.  The branch can be used different ways and the owl can look different depending on how you color it.

I stamped the Buffalo Check stamp (also from SU!) onto Crumb cake using Early Espresso ink. Sponged the edges to make it look even more ‘old’.  I stamped the owl on a scrap of Vanilla and colored it using the Soft Suede/Crumb Cake Blends.  This stamp is EASY to color!  I used the Die that matches the owl, put Dimensionals on the back and he is ready to put on my card!  I die cut the branch from Soft Suede cardstock laid it over a Very Vanilla oval die cut with Stitched Framelits.  I sponged the edges of the oval with Soft Suede and used the Early Espresso marker to add the stitched look.

I hope you like my easy card!  I would love to hear what you think.

Sitting Pretty

Hey Guys,

Today I am sharing you another CASE’d card (Copy and share everything), I got this idea from Nicolle Belisimo on Pinterest.  It’s almost exactly like hers!  Thanks Nicolle!

My vase is a different color, and I embossed the words in Copper.

I love the copper ribbon!

I used the Stamparatus to line the stamps up, boy does that make it nice!!

Sneak Peek Animal Outing

Hey guys!

I’m not sure that I’ve told you before, but I LOVE Giraffe!  They fascinate me.  I got to feed one by hand when I visited my daughter in MN!  NOW when I go to  visit we’ll HAVE to go feed them again!

Here is a card I made by creating a second giraffe facing the other way.

To get the image to face the other way, stamp onto the Silicone Craft Sheet and then immediately turn over and ‘stamp’ the image onto your cardstock.  This works really well, since the image doesn’t dry as fast on the mat.  Then color as usual!  Now, you have two Giraffe facing each other!

Dimensions:

Soft Sky 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Daffodil Delight 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ (x2 for inside also)
Cajun Craze 5″ x 3 3/4″
Very Vanilla 5″ x 3 3/4″
Scraps of Garden Green and Very Vanilla

I embossed the Cajun Craze with the Layered Leaves Embossing folder, then ran the Versamark over the images GENTLY to have it only on the raised areas.  Then embossed with Copper embossing powder.

The Stitched framelits is a MUST for any stamper, I use it all the time!

Sneak Peek Rooted in Nature

Hey Guys!

While at OnStage, an event that demonstrators attend to learn and get product early, I saw a card that made me make this card.  I don’t know about you, but if I get an idea in my head it is very hard to wait to try and make it!  I have a class that is at the Senior Center here in Kernersville that I bring elegant cards for the participants to make, this is one of the cards that we will be making soon.

I used the background stamp set Hardwood from SU!  I stamped it with Versamark and then poured copper Embossing powder on it and heat set to make this dynamic background!  Very easy (and still fun to do even after 17 years…….I LOVE to watch the magic of embossing!) yet this is a Stunner!  The tree is from the NEW catalog from Stampin’ Up! called Rooted in Nature, that will be coming out in June 2018.

I got this set FOR FREE while at On Stage along with 4 other stamp sets!  If you want a job where you get freebies, get to play every day and meet FANTASTIC people, join my team and become a Demonstrator!

I  colored the Rhinestones using the Bronze Blends so it would all coordinate!  THAT is the reason I decided to join SU!, I don’t have to guess which colors coordinate!  Plus, I got the discount!  hahahaha

Make a Pop Up Card easy by Eyeballing it!

Hey Guys!

I am not much of a Measurer and if it takes me too long to ‘figure it out’ I tend to not want to do it!  That doesn’t mean that I WON’T do it, just that I put it off until I have plenty of time!  I keep seeing these Pop-Up Cards and I wanted to figure out an easy way to make one, that I could teach and show on a video…….
I figured out a quick and easy way to make a Pop-Up card that takes minimal measuring and hardly ANY stress!  Check out my video!

Here is the front of the card:

I absolutely LOVE this Stampin’ Up! set: Waterfront!  It really makes you feel like an artist, and you can make the scenery any way you can imagine!!  I changed the scenery inside, popped up some trees and I am thrilled with the result!

The trees fold down when the card is closed and Stand up when open!  On my video you can see just how easy this card is!

Here is the view from above:

I hope you like this card as much as I do!  The supplies are listed below, just click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!

Until next time!
