A Little More Traditional

Hi!  As promised, today I have a little more traditional color combination using the Incredible Like You stamp set.  Maybe this one will appeal to you more.

Friends, Incredible Like You, #DIstINKtiveStamps, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For these two cards, I used Garden Green and Crushed Curry as my color scheme.  Still love the look of the DistINKtive stamps as it really makes it easy to show the details of the flowers without having to figure out my own color combination.

I did demonstrate how I made the card on the left in this video:

I colored the rhinestones with the Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends to place around the sentiment.  I think it adds a nice touch.

I do like how the “So Glad we Are Friends” card turned out – that I made 20 of them with a different sentiment for my Mother-in-Law to use as she recovers from surgery.  Here they are:

Thank You, Incredible Like You, #DistINKtivestamps, #simplestamping, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

If my Crumb Cake card using this set didn’t inspire you, perhaps these cards will.

If you have other color combinations you’d like to suggest, let me know!  I see myself using this set quite a bit!

Thanks for stopping by!

Yes or No?

Hi! I have a card to share with you that is a little out of the norm.  I did share how I made it on a recent Facebook Live and some liked it and some maybe didn’t.

I do like the color combination of Blueberry Bushel and Granny Apple Green – just not sure Crumb Cake is the best color for the background.

This card features the Incredible Like You stamp set.  Do you love the detail in the flower?  While this is a 2-Step Stamping set – it is also a DistINKtive stamp set which allows for one ink color to take on different shades as seen in the leaves and main flower above.  I LOVE this look!

To give the card a little more flair, I added a touch of white at the base of the small flowers using the Chalk Marker.

So, what do you think?  Like it? Yes or no?  Be honest – (but kind, please).

I’ll have a more traditional card using this set a little later in the week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fly Fishing Anyone?

Hi! Today I have another card featuring the Best Catch bundle from the Occasions Catalog.

Masculine, Fishing, Best Catch, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Love how this card turned out – and it is a pocket card – so you can tuck a little gift card or your note right there.

For this card, I sponged Balmy Blue and So Saffron ink on pieces of Designer Series Paper from the Wood Textures pack.  The fisherman is stamped  in StazOn Jet Black ink.   The base of the card is Balmy Blue.  A little burlap ribbon to finish it off.

For the base, start with a piece of Balmy Blue measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ edge.  Slide the score line to the 2″ mark and cut (this allows you to create the pocket).  From the same sheet of Designer Series Paper, cut one piece 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ and another 5 1/4″ x 1 3/4″.  Save a scrap for the sentiment.  On the larger piece, sponge Balmy Blue on the bottom and So Saffron on the top to create the water and sunset.  Then stamp the fisherman.  On the smaller piece, sponge Balmy Blue on the top and Old Olive on the bottom (hard to see in this picture given the ribbon).  Use the envelope punch board to round all the corners.  Attach the top piece to the Balmy Blue base.  Use Tear & Tape on just the two sides of the lower flap and adhere to make the pocket.  Wrap the ribbon around the Designer Series Paper before attaching to the front of the pocket.  Add your sentiment and done!

The One That Got Away?

Hi!  Today I am sharing the card I made during last week’s Facebook Live using the Best Catch bundle in the Occasions Catalog.

Fishing, Masculine, Best Catch, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Birthday

I am so happy with how the fish turned out.  I used an aqua painter and Old Olive and Crushed Curry ink to color the fish and then applied liquid glue using the Fine Tip Glue Pen to cover him. – here’s a better view:

Best Catch, Fishing, Masculine, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For the background on the card, I stamped the Crackle Paint Stamp set in Old Olive ink on Whisper White.  The cattails were die cut from the coordinating framelits from Old Olive Cardstock.  The Rectangle frame uses the new Stitched Rectangle Framelits in the Occasions Catalog as well.  I just layered two together and ran through the Big Shot once to make the frame.  Very easy and I love the stitching on it!  The sentiment is from the Piece Of Cake stamp set.

Here is the video – it is the second card:

What do you think?  Do you have fishermen on your friends and family list?  This would be a great bundle to use for birthday, Father’s Day or even Thank You!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!

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 the video for the card:

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

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%!

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!
