Butterflies Card

Hi and welcome to my blog! Do you love butterflies? Have you noticed how much they are showing up in fashion, art, and such. They sure have become popular right now and are extremely trendy. That is why I created this card. I used two new stamp sets from Stampin' Up!'s new 2015-2016 catalog. They are You've Got This and Watercolor Wings Bundle which comes with framelits. I used the background stamp from You've Got This in Pool Party. Then I stamped the butterflies in three steps. First in Pool Party. Next, in Bermuda Bay. Finally, in Lost Lagoon. What a beautiful color combo this is. They play off of each other perfectly. Next, I die cut them out using the Big Shot and Bold Butterfly Framelits. I then stamped the sentiment, from Watercolor Wishes, in Lost Lagoon. Next, I placed the butterflies onto the card base and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then placed a rhinestone on each one. Here are all the items I used:

Always Here For You Card

Hey everyone! Welcome to my first post of the week. Today I have a card I made using all Stampin' Up! items. First, I used two stamp sets; Friendly Wishes, and You've Got This. I first stamped the background stamp from You've Got This using Blushing Bride on a piece of Whisper White. Then I stamped the sentiment on top from Friendly Wishes in Basic Black. I then put rhinestones in each corner. Next, I embossed the bigger piece of Whisper White with the embossing folder Large Polka Dots. I then placed the smaller piece on the larger piece with Stampin' Dimensionals. Next, I adhered the whole thing onto a card base of Blushing Bride to match the background ink color. Here are all the items, if anything catches your eye just click on it and it will take you to my store.

Friendship Card

Hi everyone. Welcome to my blog today. I have a new post for the day showing this really cute friendship card. I have a dear friend who I love to make cards for so I came up with this idea using the new stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Friendly Wishes.

Cupcakes Card

Hey there everyone! How are you all doing? I'm a day late with this as our cable was knocked out by a huge microburst that went through our town. We are finally back up and running so here is my blog for Wednesday. I was inspired to make this card by another I saw on Pinterest. They had used another stamp set but the result is pretty much close to the original. I picked out several Stampin' Up! stamp pads that I wanted to use plus the color of my card base. Next I punched out each cupcake with the Cupcake punch. Then I used the embossing folder Large Polka Dots and then I grouped the cupcakes together as in the original inspiration. Finally, I stamped the sentiment in Rose Red and my card is finished.

Baby Boy Card

Hi and welcome back to my blog. Today I have for you a card that may look familiar. Last week I made a card like this for a girl and today I thought I would show you the boy version. It is pretty much made the same way I just changed out the colors and the sentiment. I started with a Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla card base and made my first layer out of Pool Party. Next, I cut the next layer out of the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Sweet Li'l Thing. I love this paper, it is so cute. I stamped the lion from the Zoo Babies stamp set in Hello Honey onto a piece of Very Vanilla. Then I used my Lots of Labels dies and cut the lion out and then used Hello Honey cardstock to cut out the next size bigger to layer them. I used the same stamp set for the sentiment in Pool Party but used the Bitty Banners die to cut it out. Next, I used the Bow Builder Punch for the very cute bow out of Pool Party. Finally, I put everything onto the card front using some Snail adhesive, glue dots,…

Saturday Bonus Blog

Hi and welcome to my blog. I have been real busy in my craft room making cards so I decided to share one with you today as a special bonus. I got the idea for this card from the 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! catalog on page 119 with the Garden in Bloom stamp set. There are some beautiful ideas in this catalog. Some would be really easy to recreate. I started with cutting a piece of English Garden and a piece of vellum to 4"x 5-1/4". Next, I stamped with the Garden in Bloom set onto the vellum with black Stazon ink. This is to guarantee that the ink would not run or smear. Next I layered the vellum onto the paper and then onto the cardstock and punched holes on the top for the ribbon. I weaved the white ribbon into the holes. The card is done, now how simple was that.

Door Prize for Open House Card Set

Hello everyone! Welcome, welcome. Today I have a really cool card set that I created with a little inspiration from Pinterest. I saw a pin on there that was a card set using the Stampin' Up! Crazy About You stamp set that I fell in love with and knew I wanted to use this for idea I had for a door prize at my Open House I am having on the 27th for the new catalog and an Introduction to Stamping workshop. I started with, of course, the Crazy About You stamp set and Hello You Thinlit dies, both by Stampin' Up! and available in a bundle form where you will save 15% on the total price of the two items. Next, I chose to use the new Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP) English Garden. Finally, I chose what cardstock I was going to use. In the catalog and on the back of the paper pack there is a list of coordinating cardstock that matches the DSP beautifully. I chose to use Blushing Bride, Hello Honey, Old Olive, Night of Navy and of course Whisper White. Now to design th…

Triple Butterfly Card

Hello everyone! Today I have a project using Stampin' Up!'s new Bold Butterfly Framelits. I also used the great Stampin' Up! stamp set Butterfly Basics and Butterflies Framelits. I got the idea for this card from the new 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! catalog page 129. They used a different background stamp but I did not have that one so I used what I had and it is this stamp from You've Got This stamp set. I think it came out just as good. I also used a little different colors. I used Watermelon Wonder and Sahara Sands. I first stamped the middle butterfly with Watermelon Wonder and the background of the base card with Sahara Sand. Then I die cut all three out with my trusty Big Shot. I then popped the butterflies up with Stampin' Dimensionals and then placed a rhinestone on top. You would have your choice of whatever stamp you want inside.
     Remember that on June 27th I will be having an Introduction into Stamping Open House/Workshop. So if you happen in be in…

Congratulations Baby Card

Hello everyone! I am so sorry that it has been so long since my last post. I am going to start myself on a schedule, so from now on I will be posting every Monday, Wednesday, Friday. This will be a great schedule for me as it pushes me to get some projects done that I love doing. So here is the first one. It is this really cute baby card perfect for the parents of a new addition to their family. I think the bow really pushes it over the top. This card was made with new DSP from the new 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! catalog. I had so much fun making this card and it was so easy. Easy enough for you to CASE (copy and share everything) it. 
     Please if you need a catalog let me know. For just $6 I will send you a new 2015-2016 catalog. And please if you already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator ask them first for a catalog.
     Thanks so much for coming to my blog and taking a look at my cute baby card. I hope you have a great week! :)
