Ornate Garden Suite-Mother's Day Card

Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog! I have made a swap for a group I am part of in Facebook and it was for a Mother's Day Card!


I have decided to use Ornate Garden Suite, paired with sentiments from Strong & Beautiful! I love this Ornate Garden Suite! I partially cased this card from another demonstrator, Jessica Brigden but I didn't add any of the die cut pieces as I was on a deadline and needed to produce 11 cards!

My measurements are as follows:

1. Blushing Bride Card Base- 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
2. Terracotta Tile cut at 4" x 5 1/4".
3. Whisper White cut at 3 3/4" x 5". Inside piece is 4" x 5 1/4".
4. Ornate Garden Specialty DSP cut at 3 3/4" x 3 3/4".
5. Terracotta Tile Ribbon from suite at about 4 1/4".


I stamped all images in Terracotta Tile ink, and then added Champagne Rhinestones for some bling!



Enjoy! If you need any of these supplies to make this card, visit my shop now button on the main page of my blog!!

Happy Stampin' Everyone!

Saturday Night Spotlight- Using up Scraps of Designer Series Paper!!!

Tonight I did my Saturday Night Spotlight Facebook live and I featured using up scraps of DSP to make simple cards! I was inspired by a fellow demo Connie Stewart, and she is simply amazing at what she does! I used her ideas for a few cards changing colors but then made a few of my own as well! Sharing what we love, and loving what we do, it is okay to use others as your inspiration, simply give them credit.




All 4 of my cards featured Whisper White Thick for my card bases, cut at either 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" or they were 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  I featured the Brights 6x6 DSP, which is now sold out, but you can use whatever DSP you have laying around that you have scraps of!! It does not matter!



Two of my cards had layers, which were 4" x 5 1/4", and then one had a layer of whisper white that was 3 3/4" x 5".

All of my scraps of DSP were 1" x 6" to start and then cut to fit each individual card!



I hope you enjoy! I used different sentiments from stamp sets in the annual or mini catalogs that are current, and some scraps and punches!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed these cards and if you need any supplies and don't have a demo, simply click my Shop Now button on my blog and happy shopping and stamping!!!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop April 2020- Thinking of You


Thank you so much for joining our April Blog hop this month, featuring a theme of Thinking of you Girls!  We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world taking part in this special monthly blog hop.  You will see great projects from either the annual or mini current catalogs featured this month.  You may have arrived from Annette's  blog and her project was stunning and amazing!

I am featuring a stamp set from the Annual Catalog for you this month called Modern Heart! It is a stamp set designed by a Million Dollar Achiever Steffi Helmschrott. I knew I wanted this stamp set as soon as I saw it in the Annual Catalog as I love the geometric design and it has such beautiful sentiments in it as well.


I am also choosing to pair with with the soon to be retiring In-Color collection from 2018-2020 that will be retiring this June.  Those colors include Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel and Grapefruit Grove! I am really going to miss these colors as they are so vibrant and beautiful. I am featuring Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch, two of my favorites out of the 5.

My card base is in Lovely Lipstick, cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  For my first layer I am using Pineapple Punch that is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  My basic black layer is cut at 3 1/8" x 4 5/8" and my shimmery whisper white layer is cut at 3" x 4 1/2".



For the Pineapple Punch layer I took the small heart from the stamp set and stamped it with Pineapple Punch ink along the bottom edge for a tone on tone look. I used Vellum and Versamark ink to stamp my large heart and heat embossed it with the shimmer black embossing powder and used my heat tool to emboss it. I then fussy cut that heart out which is very easy to do.  I used the big watercolor image for the background of the heart and stamped it off first for a lighter effect using Lovely Lipstick ink.









For my sentiment I chose to use the one from this set and place it in the lower right side of my whisper white.  To finish off the front of the card I used my the In-color enamel dots to bling it out a bit. I used dimensionals to adhere the black layer to the Pineapple Punch layer, and tombow glue for all other layers.



For the inside of the card I simply stamped that small heart again along the bottom alternating with Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick inks.  I wanted plenty of space to write a message to a friend during this time. I used a piece of Shimmery Whisper White Cardstock inside that measures 4" x 5 1/4".

Saturday Night Spotlight March 7, 2020 Modern Heart Stamp Set

Hello crafters! I am happy to bring you the Modern Heart Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog for this Saturday Night Spotlight Facebook live.  This stamp set was designed by a $1 Million achiever, Steffi Helmschrott and I have had my eye on it since the catalog went live.

I have created 3 beautiful cards, all Thank you cards, but for the beginner, casual and avid crafter in mind.  I hope you enjoy my cards and if you need to purchase this stamp set, please visit my shop now link on my blog main page or visit My Store HERE. All supplies I used tonight can be purchased through my store online. All measurements will be listed at end of this blog to make each card.

Look for more projects coming from me using this stamp set, paired with others, as it is such a versatile set. I only used 2 card colors tonight, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch, both In-Colors that will be retiring this June. So stock up now if you need them and love them like me.

For the beginner card I simply stamped the Thank you Sentiment in Lovely Lipstick all over the whisper white layer, and added in the small heart in Pineapple Punch to fill it in.  I layered that on Pineapple Punch and adhered to the Lovely Lipstick card base.

For the casual card, I stamped the large heart image in Lovely Lipstick, and then took the single watercolor image and stamped it in Pineapple Punch all the way up the heart without re-inking for the Ombre affect.  I added a piece of Black Satin Ribbon and punched the Thank you sentiment using a 1 1/2" circle punch.  I added a few Basic Rhinestones for some bling as well. 
\\

For the avid crafter card, I decided to do a watercolor wash so I used the glimmer whisper white cardstock for this as it handles the water a bit better.  I used Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick starting with Pineapple punch and going back if need be.  I then used the small solid heart in each color and added a few of each color.  For the big heart, I used Vellum cardstock, and heat embossed with the black glitter embossing powder and fussy cut it.  For the sentiment, I used the Stitched Nested Label dies on the glimmer cardstock and heat embossed that as well and  colored the heart with the Dark Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blend, as well as the basic rhinestones for bling. I again used the satin ribbon to tie a knot around both layers.
All the insides of the cards are the same and simply three of the small hearts in the same ink colors or cardstock used. 

Here are the measurements of the cards: 
1. Lovely Lipstick card base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" for all 3 cards. 
2. Pineapple Punch layer is 4" x 5 1/4" for all three cards. 
3. Whisper White is 3 3/4" x 5" on all 3 cards (avid is glimmer). 
4. Whisper white inside is 4" x 5 1/4" on all 3 cards. 
5. About 4 1/2" ribbon for casual card, about 14" for avid card. 
6. A soap of whisper white for casual card, a scrap of glimmer white for avid card, and vellum for big heart for avid card. 

I hop you enjoyed these cards, and I look forward to seeing you again next week for another Saturday Night Spotlight.

March Swap Card Happy Birthday to You SAB Stamp Set



Hello everyone and welcome to a new blog!  Today I made a card featuring the Sale-A-Bration set called Happy Birthday to You, available until March 31, 2020 or until supplies last.  I made this for a Demonstrator swap I am part of for the March card!  I absolutely love this stamp set and will be sad to see it go at the end of the month.  

The colors I used for this card are Blackberry Bliss for the card base, Gray Granite for the card base layer, Bermuda Bay as a layer and Whisper White for the cake and inside layer. I really ended up liking this combo together. 

I used several Stampin' Blends to color the cake image and used light and dark combos of all. I then finished off by adding some Wink of Stella to make it shimmer.  I used Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay. 


I used the Subtle embossing folder for the Gray Granite layer, the Stitched Rectangle Dies for the Bermuda Bay piece and the NEW Stitched so Sweetly Dies from the Mini catalog for the whisper white piece on the front.  I colored by basic Rhinestones with blends and added those to the front at the end.  I also added the striped Bermuda Bay ribbon to the cake piece and then popped those layers up with dimensionals.  

The inside I simply used the sentiments from the set and stamped them in Memento Black Ink and Bermuda Bay ink. 
I hope you enjoyed this card.  If you want to earn this Stamp Set FREE simply place a $50 order and select it as your FREE Sale-A-Bration set.  You could select the coordinating dies for the cake set as part of your $50 order to help earn the stamp set free.  Feel free to shop my store HERE.

3. Whisper white inside layer is 4" x 5 1/4", scrap for scalloped die on front(about 3 1/4")

Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

Hello today I created two birthday cards for my project featuring the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog along with a sentiment from the FREE Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set for the inside of the card from the Happy Birthday to you set.

I love the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and how the images just pop on the card when you stamp them. I chose to use the Brights color family for my color scheme.  I started with a Flirty Flamingo Base, a layer of basic black and then whisper white cardstock for both the from and inside. Ink colors used are Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, and Flirty Flamingo.


I stamped the floral images using all Bright Colors in various spots on the whisper white layer and the Stitched Nested Label Die (2nd largest).  I first stamped the sentiment so I could place it and then built the flowers around it. I temporarily adhered the nested label die to stamp, and then when finished popped it up with dimensionals.


To finish the front of the card, I added black satin ribbon around the white and black layer and then adhered it to the front of the flirty flamingo base.  I also added some basic rhinestone jewels as well.


For the inside I used the celebrate sentiment from the SAB set Happy Birthday to You.  And stamped off in flirty flamingo the Hydrenga in the corner.

All measurements of the card are as follows:
1. Flirty Flamingo Base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
2. Basic black layer is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".
3. Whisper White layer for front panel and inside are 4" x 5 1/4".  Also need a piece of whisper white for the Stitched Nested label die (2nd largest).
4. Black Sation ribbon- about 5 5/8" to wrap around layers.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and if you need any supplies to make your own or just to refill your paper crafting needs, please shop HERE. The host code for February is on right hand side of my blog, but only use it if your oder is under $150.

Happy Stampin' everyone, I hope you enjoyed my card and gave you some inspiration to create your own!
