Stampin’ Up! Parcels & Petals and dies

Hi Friends,

This cards is one I copied/tweaked from Demonstrator Jaimie Babarczy.

I LOVE what she did with the template.

My choice of Terracotta Tile card stock and matching ribbon was a  favorite!

The base was a layer of Terracotta Tile card stock and I used the floral stamp image ( with the same colored ink) to add interest to the base of the card.

I next took a piece of Soft Suede cards stock ( 3″ x 4 3/4″) and added a piece of Very Vanilla card stock–1/16″ smaller than the Soft Sueded.

Then the fun stamping on the vanilla layer. Simply Terracotta Tile and Soft Sued…that’s it!

My message was using the Thank You from the set–I love the font!!!

Then I cut it out using our Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.

Used a few  Dimensionals and added it to the lower right hand corner.

I also took a 4″ piece of the matching ribbon and tied one know. Using Glue Dots, I secured it to the edge of the message.

Of course I HAD to add a touch of Wink of Stella to the petals of the flowers–you know me!

Please don’t forget –this bundle is retiring so if this one you MUST have, please either go to my online store or contact me.

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella stamp set and Punch

Hi Friends,

I’m going to show you how cute this stamp set  and coordinating punch is! Both are retiring   {:( } so if this has been on your Wish List, now is the time to order them!

 

 

 

I actually tweaked this from a few versions I saw on PInterest.

I love the cuteness of the umbrellas as well as the sayings .

Basic White is my base , then a layer of Coastal cabana.

I used Stitched So Sweetly dies to frame the umbrella and of course I had to add just a tad of Wink of Stella to enhance the rain drops.

White Baker’s Twins as an added bow and voila!

There you have it!

Remember, this stamp set and builder punch are retiring—so please either go to my on line store and select your items or contact me.

I’ll be happy to help you!

Check below to see all the fun products I used to make this card!

Stampin’ Up! Incredible Like You stamp set!

Hi Friends,

Incredible Like You is a stamp set I learned to LOVE!

When I first saw the Project Kit, I knew I had to do a class –simply because those cards are so BEAUTIFUL!

But then I started seeing how other Demonstrators created different images and I was HOOKED!

Here is one I love love love!

It was created by Demonstrator, Lori Pinto. I did tweaked mine just a bit but the inspiration came from Lori’s beautiful card.

Incredible Like You

It can be used for most occasions and my intention is for a special friend—just a note…

I used Pear Pizzazz, Highland Heather and Whisper White cards stock and matching inks.

Of course had to use Wink of Stella to add just a pop of shine to the flowers. Two little Enamel Dots and voila!

The fonts in the messages are whimsical and “happy.” ( Have I told you I am enamored with artists who design fonts? Taking a pen and coming up with twists and depth to create letters and numbers fascinate me!)

What do you think?

This stamp set is available from the Occasions catalog until June 3rd.

It is NOT carrying over to the new Annual catalog, so if you want it , please order NOW

Petal Palette meets Berry Burst!

Hi Friends,

Both the Petal Palette stamp set and Berry Burst In Color are retiring  ( by June 3rd or until supplies last)

So I decided to create a card using this stamp set (one of my all time favorites!) —and Berry Burst ink!

This is incredibly easy to make!

I stamped the leave with Lemon-Lime Twist ink ( another retiring In Color) and the flowers with berry Burst.

Next I stamped three flowers on scrap paper then using the Big Shot, I cut them out ( Petals & More Thinlits–also retiring)

Popped them up with Dimensionals and of course I HAD to ‘bathe’ them with Wink of Stella!

And for just a bit of extra excitement, I put a Perl in the center of the popped up flowers.

What do YOU think?

Of course no card leaving my house has a naked envelope–so a bit more stamping and voila!

All done! Can’t you imagine this card for almost any occasion?

So friends, this set and Thinlits  are retiring as are all the 2017-2019 In Colors.

Get yours before they are gone!

Contact me or go to my online store and place your order.

Frosted Floral DSP meets Hanging Garden

Hi Friends,

Today I want to show you how easy a few card techniques can be used to  make a very pretty Stampin’ Up! card!

First I took a piece of Crumb Cake card stock as my base.

Next I took a piece of Crumb Cake ( 1/4′ smaller by length and width of the base) and stamped, in Early Expresso ink,  the words “Thank You Kindly” from the Hanging Garden stamp set.

NEXT –magic with the Subtles Embossing Folder!I ( one of MY NEW FAVORITES!)

Take a look at the ‘subtle’ yet textured look of that layer.

Can you see the fine lines? Makes me think of fine wale corduroy.

Next I took a piece of Soft Suede card stock and used the Layering Squares Framelits, with my Big Shot,  cut 3 squares.

Then I took a piece of the Frosted Floral DSP ( LOVE the colors and the fine shimmer!!!) and made 3 smaller squares.

Of course I used Snail to adhere all 3 pieces of DSP to the card stock.

Then I arranged the squares on the embossed layer.

To add just a bit of interest, I used 3 enamel shapes in the lower right hand corner.

There you have it…3 easy techniques:
1. Using the Subtles Embossing Folder

2. Using the Layering Squares Framelits

3. Adding a few embellishments.

Three simple ways to make a card –make it YOUR own and send it with love!

You could make a boxed set of these for a gift!

Stampin’ Up! Thinking of You card

Hi Friends,

This week I’m in Orlando for our 30 year Stampin’ Up! Celebration convention!

One of the FUN things we do is create cards to swap with other Demonstrators ( over 5000 of us!!!)

This is one Swap card I designed.

I used Gray Granite as the base –such a subtle color –I LOVE it!

The next layer is Coastal Cabana embossed with the Layering Leaves Folder.

Then I took a piece of the Silver Foil card stock and layered Frosted Floral DSP on top of that.

Those papers are soooooo beautiful–one side has a muted shimmery appearance to it. GORGEOUS!

The Silver Foil paper makes the designer paper really POP!

SO I swapped these with my house mates  and I’ll show you what I received in return when I’m back in Massachusetts.

I’m SURE I’ll have some gorgeous cards to share with all of you!
