Can’t Decide

Hi!  Today I had a chance to play with the new Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration offering which is now available for FREE with a $100 (US, prior to S/H and tax) purchase!

Here’s the 1st card:

Friend, Painted Season, 2019SAB, Stampin' Up!, SU!

 

The colors for both cards are Mango Melody, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist.  For this one, I used Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon and base.

Here’s the second card:

Friend, Painted Seasons, SU!, Stampin' Up!, 2019SAB

For this one, I used Mango Melody for the base and Black Baker’s Twine.  I like both – but think this one pops a bit more.

Coffee & Friends

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  I had some time this weekend to play a little and came up with this card featuring the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set.

Coffee, Friendship, Coffee Cafe, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I am not a coffee drinker – I prefer tea, but so many of my friends and family are coffee drinkers that I thought it was time to use this set.

The coffee cup and coffee cup rings are stamped in Early Espresso.  I did place the Whisper White layer directly on top of the Crumb Cake card base before stamping the coffee cup rings from the Timeless Textures stamp set so that the rings would carry through to the base.  I then placed a layer of Blueberry Bushel in between the two layers for a bit of a pop of color.

The Coffee Cup and sentiment were stamped using the Stamparatus – such a great tool to use to align stamps and for mass production.  The Sentiment is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.

The coordinating framelits – Coffee Cups were used to die cut the cup and lid.  Dimensionals were used to pop the lid.

A pretty simple card, but so fitting for so many people in my life!

Beauty Abounds

Hi!  Today I have a card featuring the Beauty Abounds stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  This set is so pretty!

Friendship, Beauty Abounds, Butterflies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2019Occasions

I stamped the flourish in StaZOn Jet Black ink along the right hand side as well as along the bottom.  The flowers were colored with Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo while the leaves were colored with Soft Seafoam and Pear Pizzazz.   The butterflies are colored in Flirty Flamingo.

The sentiment is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and punched with the 1 3/4″ circle punch.  This is layered on a 2″ Circle of Pear Pizzazz.   A butterfly element from the Sale-A-Bration catalog  is colored on the edges with a Crumb Cake marker and attached using a glue dot.  These wooden elements are a FREE choice during Sale-A-Bration where a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE product!

The base for the card is Soft Sea Foam and measures 4 1/4″ x 11″ – scored at 5 1/2″.  The mat is Pear Pizzazz and measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The Whisper White panel measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.

Here is a video from my Wednesday Wow Facebook Live:

Wild About You Valentine

Hi!  Today I have another Valentine featuring the Animal Outing Bundle.  Yes, I know, I’ve shared others – but this one is so cute, I couldn’t resist!

Valentine, Animal Outing, Stampin' Up!, SU!

How can you resist these adorable images?  Over the weekend, I had decided to do something with a bunch of projects I had started and never finished.  In the pile were a bunch of rhinos, giraffes and trees.  I believe I had planned on using them for thank you cards, but never got to it.  I also had one of these hearts but in a different color from another project and thought – hmm, I think these pieces would make a cute Valentine.

So, here is my final creation.  In the end, I made 13 of these Valentines – 12 of which I sent to a friend.

The sentiment is also from the Animal Outing stamp set.  I used Stampin’ Blends to color the animals.  The heart die cut is from the Sunshine Wishes framelits set – and something I recently pulled out for the first time.  So nice to finally use products that had been sitting unused!

All in all, I am happy with this card and happy to have used up the pieces I had sitting around.  Feeling very accomplished!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  You will find all the products listed below and in my on-line store.  Don’t forget, we are still Sale-A-Brating and a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure!

Team Stamp It – Valentine Hop

Hi! Today I am excited to be participating in the Team Stamp It Valentine’s Blog Hop!

I just love this little treat holder and think it is perfect for anyone!

Valentines, Treat Holder, Envelope Punch Board, Hedgehugs, Stampin' Up!, SU! Stampithop

He is carrying 5 Hershey Nuggets inside his pouch.  The original idea for a single nugget was created by Dawn Griffith and this 5 nugget version was designed by Deseree Krumm.

It is quick and easy to make using the Envelope Punch Board.

Cut your All My Love Designer Series Paper at 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.

Line up one side at the 2″ mark on the punch board, punch and score.  Rotate the paper counterclockwise, and line up the score line with the little notch on the punch board to the left of the opening.  Punch and score.  Repeat the rotation and score for the remaining sides -always aligning the score line to the notch.

Here is my video – it is the second project – showing how to make this using the punch board.

Side note – if you liked the first project, you’ll  find details on it here.

The image is stamped from the Hedgehugs Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink.  The sentiment is from the exclusive stamp set in the January Paper Pumpkin and is stamped in Real Red ink.  A little heart is placed over the flower and was punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch from Real Red Cardstock.

Floral Romance

Hi! Today I have a card I shared this past week on my Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live!  I had seen this fold on a card by Rose Maroney Ward and absolutely LOVED it!

Birthday, Floral Romance, 2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

So pretty! The Designer Series Paper is from the Floral Romance pack in the Occasions Catalog.  The die cuts and sentiment are from the Well Said Bundle also found in the Occasions Catalog.  The purchase of this bundle automatically qualifies you for a FREE Sale-A-Bration product through March 31, 2019.

I used the awesome Adhesive Sheets – why did I not discover these sooner? – on the back of the die cuts to make it easy to attach to my card.

Here is a PDF with the measurements:  Floral Romance Flap Card

Here is the video for the card:

I have a few more versions of this flap fold which I’ll share soon.

Happiness Blooms

Hi! Today I am sharing a card made using the Happiness Blooms suite from the Occasions Catalog.  Love the bold look in this suite.

The flower is stamped in Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover inks.  This is attached to a card from the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Card pack as is the flowered panel behind that.  The card base is one of the cards from the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Cards & Envelopes – and is larger than our normal A2 size cards that I typically make.  The inside of the card is white.   The card is finished with the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

Animal Love

Hi! As promised, I am back today with a cute Treat Holder featuring the Animal Outing Suite in the Annual Catalog.

Valentine, Animal Outing, Treat Holder. Stampin' Up!, SU!

Is this little file folder not the cutest?  I saw this idea a few years ago by Becky Roberts but hadn’t yet tried it.  So happy I remembered it!  These are very easy to make and can be done quickly.

The File Folder is 3″ x 5″, scored at 2 1/4″ and 2 1/2″ on the 5″ side.   A piece of Designer Series Paper 2 1/4″ x 3″ is also needed.  To see how to turn it into a folder, watch this video – it is the second project shared:

The animals are from the Animal Outing Stamp set and are colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The Rhino and Giraffe were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and die cut using the coordinating framelits.  Stampin’ Blends were used to color the animals – Smoky Slate both light and dark, Calypso Coral light and Pool Party light were used for the Rhino and bird while Daffodil Delight light and Crumb Cake light were used for the Giraffe.    You can order the stamps and dies as a bundle and save 10%!

Love You Valentine

Hi! Today I am sharing a more masculine Valentine!  I am pretty happy with how this turned out and think it suits my guy pretty well.

Valentine, Masculine, Ombre, Sunshine Wishes,  Celebrate You, Stampin' Up!, SU

I shared this card this past week during my Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live.  The background is created by using a Sponge Brayer and the Basic Gray ink pad on Glossy White Cardstock.  Love the ombre look I achieved.

The rest is straight forward die cuts – the heart and LOVE are dies in the Sunshine Wishes framelits while the YOU is from the Celebrate You die set.

Just realized – no stamping!  Wow!  I just wanted to share that while you may not own a set specific to Valentine’s Day – you probably have products that you can use to make a Valentine’s Day card.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card!

Come back on Saturday – I’ll be sharing a cute treat holder using the Animal Outing suite in the Annual Catalog.
