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:

There are a set of coordinating dies that when purchased with the stamp set as a bundle, saves you 10%!  A great bundle for any crafter!

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.

Birthday, Happiness Blooms, Stampin' Up!, SU!

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.

If you haven’t checked out the suite yet in the Occasions Catalog, hopefully this will  entice you!

Lovely Day

Hi! Today I am sharing a card featuring the Forever Lovely Suite in the Occasions catalog.

This is one of the Make & Takes we did at Convention back in November.  This suite is so pretty!  The Designer Series Paper is called All My Love and is perfect not just for Valentines but for birthday, anniversaries and just because as well.

The die cut elements are done in Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the coordinating Lovely Flowers Edgelit Dies.  The sentiment and flowers are stamped in Lovely Lipstick.  The ribbon is the All My Love combo pack.

If you are looking for a little romance or sweetness in your stamping, this suite is perfect!

Don’t forget, for every $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) purchase, you get to choose a FREE Level 1 item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  There is one exception – the Organdy Ribbon combo pack is currently sold out.  This is a very popular item and supplies are currently depleted.  There is a shipment that should arrive in time for March – so look for it then!

Got Scraps?

Hi!  Welcome to today’s post – using some of those Designer Series Scraps!  We all have them and this layout is perfect for using some of them up!

Butterflies, Thanks, 2019 Occasions, 2019 Sale-a-Bration, Humming Along, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I just love this layout and this Design Series Paper is just gorgeous!   The staggered look of the panels truly appeals to me.

I used a scrap that was 2 1/4″ x 4″.   I cut this into 3 pieces measuring 3/4″ x 4″.   These are then mounted on Basic Black mats that measure 7/8″ x 4 1/8″.

The base color for this card is Highland Heather.  The sentiment is from the Humming Along stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.

This Designer Series Paper is a FREE choice during Sale-A-Bration when you place a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order.   It is called Botanical Butterfly.  It coordinates with the Butterfly Gala bundle in the Occasions Catalog – there are sheets in this Designer Series Paper Pack which can be used with the punch.   Click on the product list below to be taken to my on-line store where you can purchase any of the products (and get your FREE Designer Series Paper) used in today’s card.

Here is another version of this card with Grapefruit Grove:

Butterflies, Butterfly Gala, 2019 Occasions, 2019 Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Yes, I’ve made a few of these cards with this layout.   I think they’ll make a great gift for someone special.

No Adhesive Needed!

Hi!  A little spring cheer for you today with this No Adhesive Needed treat holder!

Hershey Kisses, Butterfly Gala, Gingham Gala, Occasions 2019, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I demonstrated how to make this cute box in last night’s Wednesday with Teresa Facebook Live.  It is the second project in this video:

The size of the Designer Series Paper is 4 1/2″ x 5″.

Score on the 4 1/2″ side at 1″ and 3 1/2″.

Score on the 5″ side at 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″.

Then in the second and forth square on the top and bottom, score diagonally.

Here is the template with the score lines showing:

It is pretty easy to make.

The Butterfly is colored using sponge daubers and Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  (Ok, so I did use Glue Dots to adhere the butterfly to the ribbon)…  But no adhesive was used to make the box itself or to keep it closed!

The ribbon is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE when you place a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order in my on-line store.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!
