I Get By

with a little help from my friends.  Ok – did you sing it like I did?  LOL.  Couldn’t help it.  I saw this little guy in the Annual Catalog and he looked like he could use a little help.   Finally had a chance to play with him and wanted to share.

Back on Your Feet, Foil Embossing, Stampin' Up!, SU! #2019AnnualCatalog

Doesn’t he look like he could use a little help getting back on his feet?  I have a friend who underwent a heart transplant last week and thought this little guy might just cheer him up.    The turtle and sentiment are from the Back on Your Feet stamp set.

The background is the Noble Peacock Foil sheet measuring 3 3/4″ x 5″,  embossed with he Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  Isn’t that just perfect for this turtle?   Thank you to Gloria Plunkett for the great idea!

The turtle is stamped in Black StaZon ink and colored using Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen.  The Granny Apple Green and Garden Green pencils matched pretty well with the Old Olive Foil.

These are layered on Early Espresso card stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The base is Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card!

I Am Over The Moon

to be back!  Sorry for the hiatus, but life was a bit crazy over the summer and I had to take a break from blogging.

Have you seen these cows? I am also Over the Moon for them!!  They are just adorable and so fun to play with!  Here’s a cute treat holder – thank you Kim Quade of Kim Plays with Paper for the adorable idea!

Treat Holder, Over the Moon, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019annualcatalog

And these Cow Tail candies are the perfect treat to go with this adorable guy!  The cow is stamped in Jet Black StaZon ink and the spots are colored with a Basic Black Marker.  To go with the candy, I added Pumpkin Pie for his bell, tail and the little tuft of hair on the top of his head.

The sentiment is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  This is layered on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.   The topper itself is a 3 x 4 1/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock scored at 2 1/8″ and folded in half.

The treats are placed in a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane bag.   These little guys are headed to a craft fair next weekend.

You will find all the supplies in my on-line store – just click on the items in the product list below.

One Little Bird

Hi!  Today I have a card for you with (GASP) NO stamping!  I know, hard to believe – but I love this Designer Series Paper and decided to use it as my focal point for my card:

Bird Ballad, Tin Tile, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019AnnualCatalog

So pretty!  The different layers you see are a die cut of Whisper White using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  This is under the piece of Whisper White embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  A small strip of Terracotta Tile card stock is layered on top of that.  The final touch is the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper die cut with a Stitched Shape Circle framelit.  A small bow using Linen Thread finishes off the card.

There is plenty of room to add a sentiment from Hello to Thinking of You to Birthday.  I love how this turned out and the pairing of the different layers.

One quick point today – did you know, if you purchase any of the Embossing Folders in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, you will need the following plate to make them work with the old Big Shot.  As Stampin’ Up! moves to a new die cutting system (TBD), the embossing folders are thinner than the old ones – so this additional plate will allow you to use the new folders with the retired Big Shot machine.  You’ll find it here in my on-line store.

Here’s the Bird!

Hi!  Today I have another card featuring the Free as a Bird Bundle!

Birds, Hello, Friendship, Laser Cut Card, Free As A Bird, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I love the coordinating Laser Cut Lace cards that are part of the Bird Ballad Suite – they are just gorgeous!

For this card, I layered a piece of Soft Seafoam behind the laser cut front.  The birds are stamped with Jet Black StaZon ink and colored with Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen.   They were then die cut with the Stitched Nested Labels that are part of the bundle.  A piece of Soft Suede is used for the mat.  The sentiment is also die cut and a small piece of Linen Thread finishes it off.

This is one of the cards we will be making at June’s Card Club on June 29th.  If you are interested in joining me, send me an email and I’ll give you the details.  Registration ends on June 24th.

Did you know Stampin’ Up! has created bundles to make ordering all the products in a suite easier?  Now you just need to order the Bird Ballad Suite to get the stamp set, dies, Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, Bird Ballad trinkets and the tin of Laser Cut cards!  How awesome is that!

Hope you enjoyed today’s post!

I held  my Catalog Kick-off Party Friday night, and here is the card attendees were able to make:

Flowers, Thank You, Free As A Bird, 2019 In Colors, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Funny that I showcased the Free as A Bird stamp set and there isn’t a single bird on the card.  Just goes to show how versatile the Bird Ballad Suite is for creating.  This card showcases some of the new In Colors as well:

  • Pretty Peacock
  • Seaside Spray
  • Terracotta Tile

I did pair these with the Soft Seafoam from the Subtles Color Collection.   Love these new colors!  And do you see the ribbon peeking behind the sentiment?  So pretty!

From now through June 24th, I am gifting each person who places a minimum $25 order (US, prior to S/H and tax) with a pack of 10 card bases and 10 pieces of coordinating Designer Series Paper.  Shop my on-line store and use Host Code:  2EYY99AN
