Chalkboard Technique with a Twist!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share a video with you where I demonstrate the Chalkboard technique. We’re going to re-visit this fun card / technique because it was created with hearts for Valentines.

Now … while the stamp set I used has discontinued, the techniques never do!! And you can easily substitute the Sweet Conversations stamp set that I have shared with you the past few day. The Heart Punches are still in the Annual Catalog so this card would be easy to replicate.

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit back and enjoy this fun technique … you’ll love the twist of “coloring” your hearts!

Just a note: The Winter Fest downtown is not this weekend (replay of video) HOWEVER … watch for an announcement telling you about my upcoming “J2J Mini Catalog Kick Off Party!!!

I’ve always liked the “Chalkboard” technique and don’t always remember to use it! I guess that happens to all of us! Sometimes we forget about all the cool techniques and fun folds when we start creating, so I invite you to find me on my YouTube Channel … CLICK HERE! There you will be able to find techniques, fun folds and more.

While you are are there, please give any videos you’ve enjoyed a “thumbs up” and SUBSCRIBE to my channel so you get notifications when a post a new video.

Thank you for hanging out today … Hope you head over to my YouTube Channel and check out some of your favorite techniques. Let me know if there is one you want to see but I haven’t done it yet, I will put it on my list of video’s to do!

Bouquet of Valentine’s Wishes!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you having fun yet with the Sweet Talk Suite? Today I’d like to share another cute card that highlights the little envelope die and a stamp I wasn’t sure what to do with … but I like the way it looks on today’s card.

I was busy die cutting those sweet little hearts out of the designer paper so I thought I should put a few of them to use …

Now how cute is a bouquet of balloons … I mean hearts! I just put a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back of the heart and then stuck the bakers twine to the dimensional. Once I had all my twine on the hearts, I needed something to “tie them down” … so I pulled out the envelope die and cut it out from one of the designer paper patterns.

I added a few more die cut hearts and attached them directly to the card front…. but I did have to dazzle it up with some Wink of Stella.

A little bling bling on the largest heart comes from the Iridescent Rhinestones. This card design just comes to life with the texture and dimension on this card.

I still thought the bottom portion of the card was a bit … bare! That is when I pulled out the stamp with the lines and stamped it on each side of the envelope. It adds a nice touch to the card and you get to see how this can be used.

The card front was adhered to the Blushing Bride card stock. You can finish off your card by adding your “greeting to the inside and stamping a heart next to it. Cards don’t have to be hard to make to be cute or pretty.

Thank you for stopping in today … Are you lovin’ this suite yet? We’re only one month away to St. Valentine’s Day ❤

Have a wonderful day ~

Four Quick & Cute Valentine’s Cards!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am so excited to share my cards and video with you today … the cards turned out so cute and are all so different for being created with the same suite. I tried to showcase all of the products in the suite … I did good! I only missed out on the red ribbon.

Let’s start the fun off with the video …

Now that you watched the video, let’s get a close up of those cards. The first card is so simple and cute … perfect for making Valentines for the kids! You will get 16 cards from one 12 x 12 sheet of the designer paper, and you have many cute patterns to choose from!

A simple card base and a 3″ x 3″ square with a 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ mat with a coordinating color behind it. Stamp on your greeting and your good to go. Remember, you can stamp those cute hearts instead of die cutting your designer paper … just do what works best for you!

My second card highlights the embossing folder and the hearts and Iridescent Rhinestones really say … Happy Valentines Day!

By popping up the embossed card stock, you not only add texture to your card but so much dimension, and that includes the playful layering of the hearts. Who wouldn’t want to get this little cutie!? It’s just full of love ❤

The third card adds a bit more “bold” to our valentine cards … I pulled the red out of the designer paper pattern and added some black. Don’t you just love the gingham ribbon, so glad it carried over, it adds that nice pop without over taking the the hearts.

The hearts are stamped in Real Red and die cut so I could “pop” them up too! There is double the layers because I popped up the tags as well. This card wouldn’t have to be for Valentines at all … it’s a perfect way to say “I’m glad you’re in my life” to your friends (BFF!)

I put both cards together so you could see the subtle difference (and no bling on the “in line” hearts. I do want to share the dimensions again as I think I said them wrong in the video:

  • The Basic White Base: 9-1/4″ x 7-1/4″ then score at 3-3/4″ and fold
  • The Basic Black Mat: 8-3/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Designer Paper: 8-1/2″ x 3″

I’m so thrilled with the way all these cards turned out and so happy to share them with you. I hope they inspire you to create and send Valentines or cards filled with love for a friend (or your favorite sister)!

Don’t forget … Sale-a-bration is in full swing and you will receive a FREE Sale-a-bration item with the purchase of this suite … Add the Take Your Pick Tool and the mat and you’ll have enough for 2 FREE items or a Level 2 Sale-a-bration item. CLICK HERE TO VIEW CATALOG

Thank you for hanging out with me today, and I hope you are just as excited as I am for this new suite, and that I’ve inspired you to get back in your stamp room! Have fun 🙂

Die Cut Daffodils in White …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend … Today I have some “wonderful” cards to share with you. Both of these cards will highlight the daffodil dies from our Daffodil Daydream bundle.

Not only do these dies cut out the pretty stamped daffodil images but you can die cut pieces and assemble a stunning flower!

The Daffodil Daydream Bundle—which includes the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set and Daffodil Dies—is one of my favorite floral products from the January–June 2022 Mini Catalog. With line-art images ideal for coloring, accent stamps for artistic flair, and pieces to build a paper bouquet, this beautiful bundle is essential for Easter, Mother’s Day, and any other special celebration throughout the year!

By die cutting the daffodil pieces, you can layer them together and create a beautiful daffodil that will add so much texture and depth to your card. The background is stamped with the design element stamp included in the bundle, as is the greeting.

The second card stuns with an all with daffodil and a color popping backdrop. The colorful background is created by adhering strips of designer paper diagonally onto a piece of cardstock before die cutting it… this die comes from the Ornate Layers dies. The designer papers are from the Neutrals & Brights 6 x 6 Collection.

The color piece is then placed onto a Basic White tag which was punched with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and then decked out with the Flirty Flamingo Metallic Ribbon. And you cannot miss my favorites … the Elegant Faceted Gems.

I just love discovering and sharing different ways for you to use your stamp sets and dies. I hope you have enjoyed the different styles of cards the past few days.

Thank you for stopping in today ~

Enjoy your day.

Simply Sunday: Simply Daffodils Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing a simple card, simple to make because the designer paper is doing all the work! I’ve been sharing card samples from the Daffodil Daydream bundle …

The designer paper I’m using today coordinates with our daffodil bundle and has so many pretty patterns….. And it is FREE! It is one of the many wonderful rewards during our Sale-a-bration celebration!

You can add a touch of gentle elegance with the Daffodil Afternoon 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. Imagery in the pattern paper includes soft spring blooms of daisies, poppies, and daffodils. Paper includes a mix of larger blooms and greenery that can be fussy-cut to create paper elements and repeating patterns for card fronts or layers.

The jewel tone colors of the paper will elevate your homemade cards to a new level of sophistication. Add stamped images, greetings, and die-cut elements with the coordinating Daffodil Daydream Bundle. Actually … all I did was add some Wink of Stella, some rhinestones and a greeting! Simply gorgeous.

The greeting comes from one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets; Lovely You stamp set. I stamped my “just because” onto a piece of the designer paper that was trimmed off the top. Once stamped I used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to give the ends a pretty upgrade!

Each one of the little flowers on the designer paper and the greeting tag were embellished with the 2021-23 In-Color Jewels. The Wink of Stella was added to each of the white blossoms.

The designer paper is so pretty, all I did was add a little bling … can’t get any simpler than that to create a pretty card.

If you would like this bundle, just click on the link and it will take you to my store. With the purchase of the Daffodil Daydream bundle … you earn a FREE Sale-a-bration item; could it be the Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 Designer paper?

Thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to join me. Go Pack!

Expressions & Daffodils Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Woo Hooo … the weekend is finally here and so is another fab card share from the Daffodil Daydream bundle. Are you enjoying it so far? Today’s card highlights our daffodils and I teamed it up with the stunning Expressions in Ink Designer paper. I am really excited to share this card with you today ….

The daffodil look so pretty against this designer paper. I have a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Gold Foil mat behind the designer paper and the daffodils to make the “golds” pop on this card. I die cut the daffodil mat from the center of my main mat … paper saving!

Now let’s get down to the flowers… they are stamped with VersaMark on Basic White cardstock and heat embossed with gold. Once embossed, I knew I wanted to leave the outer petals white and the trumpet yellow. I used the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to lay the base of color, then I added some of the Dark Daffodil Delight.

To give more depth to the trumpet I added just a hint of Light Pumpkin Pie … then blended it again with the Light Daffodil Delight. I used Stampin’ Blends to color so it had that “watercolor” look that is highlighted in the Expressions in Ink Designer Paper. The stems and leaves were blended the same way using the Old Olive Combo pack, and the Light Soft Succulent. The Soft Succulent added the “bluish-green” tints you see in the designer paper.

To finish off my flowers I added Wink of Stella to the white petals … you can see it in the photos but it is even more stunning to they eye!

My greeting is stamped in Old Olive and comes from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. I tied my bouquet and greeting together with the beautiful Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon…. another reason I added the Soft Succulent to the greenery on this card. I finished it off with the Gilded Gems, wow … that really ties the entire card together and adds even more dimension and texture. Love it!

Thanks for joining me today.

A Daffodil Card & Tutorial …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared the cute daffodil card with the soft background created with the blending brushes …

Today I’d like to share another simple card (also with the blending brushes) and a video to show you how this bundle coordinates so beautifully and how you can earn the Designer Paper FREE!! Let’s kick back a moment and check out the video ….What do you think of that?

MOTHERS DAY CARD:

  1. Before you start stamping, cut the following paper pieces:
    • 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (14 x 21.6 cm) from Calypso Coral Cardstock
    • 3″ x 3-1/2″ (7.6 x 8.9 cm) from Calypso Coral Cardstock
    • 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) from Basic White Cardstock
  2. On the center of the 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Basic White piece, stamp the “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment from the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  3. Pick out both butterfly dies from the Daffodil Dies. Place them on a sticky note, then run them through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut. (Either of our machines will work.) These will be the masks you use to try the masking technique!
  4. Once cut, place each die-cut butterfly over parts of the stamped sentiment. Using a Blending Brush, gently apply Daffodil Delight ink in a circular motion over and around the sentiment. When done, remove the butterfly sticky notes to reveal white butterfly shapes!
  5. Create the card base by folding the 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (14 x 21.6 cm) Calypso Coral piece in half and scoring at 4-1/4″ (10.8 cm). Stamp the set’s butterfly stamp in Calypso Coral ink a few times onto each corner of the card base, then add a few Brushed Brass Butterflies.
  6. Rip the top and bottom of the Basic White piece upwards to create a unique
    textured look, then adhere to the center of the 3″ x 3-1/2″ (7.6 x 8.9 cm) Calypso
    Coral piece. To complete the card, use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the
    3″ x 3-1/2″ (7.6 x 8.9 cm) Calypso Coral piece to the center of the card base!

If you would like to purchase this bundle, and your part of my creative community or would like to join us, just click on the links at the bottom of my blog and order yours today. If you need a catalog … please let me know.

Daffodil Daydream: Easter Blessings Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share a pretty twist to the Daffodil Daydream stamp set as we turn it into an Easter Card. Not only will you see the sample of this pretty card, but you’ll get step by step instructions. This soft and sweet card comes direct from Stampin’ Up!

1. Before you start stamping, cut the following paper pieces:
• 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (21.6 x 14 cm) from Pool Party Cardstock
• 3-1/2″ x 5″ (8.9 x 12.7 cm) from Pool Party Cardstock
• 2-1/2″ x 4″ (6.4 x 10.2 cm) from Basic White Cardstock
• 2″ x 3/4″ (5.1 x 1.9 cm) from Basic White Cardstock

2. On the center of the 2-1/2″ x 4″ (6.4 x 10.2 cm) Basic White piece, stamp the single daffodil image from the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Repeat this step, stamping onto a sticky note. This will be the mask you use to try the masking technique!

3. From the Daffodil Dies, pick the die that coordinates with the single daffodil image. Align the die with the daffodil stamped on the sticky note and run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut. (Either of our machines will work.)

4. Stick the die-cut daffodil on top of the daffodil stamped on Basic White Cardstock. Using a Blending Brush, gently apply Daffodil Delight ink in a circular motion over and around the daffodil. When done, remove the sticky note from the daffodil.

5. With Calypso Coral ink, stamp the set’s “Easter Blessings” sentiment onto the 2″ x 3/4″ (5.1 x 1.9 cm) Basic White piece. Create the card base by folding the 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (21.6 x 14 cm) Pool Party piece in half and scoring at 4-1/4″ (10.8 cm), then use Stampin’ Dimensionals® to adhere the 3-1/2″ x 5″ (8.9 x 12.7 cm) Pool Party piece to the center of the card base. Adhere the remaining pieces to the card front, then embellish with a few Brushed Brass Butterflies!

I hope you enjoyed this pretty card with it’s soft and sweet simplicity. I fell in love with this bundle so keep an eye out for even more samples!

I thank you for joining me today. Enjoy ~

Four New Horizons Quick Cards Plus One!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have four quick & easy cards from the New Horizons Designer paper to share with you today which includes a replay of last nights Facebook LIVE and a fifth card that last nights viewers did not get to see … Let’s start the fun off with the video

Each card has a Basic White base (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) and a Basic Black mat cut to 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″. The New Horizons Designer paper 6″ x 6″ sheet is cut into equal pieces of 3″ x 3″.

My first card highlights the designer paper and one of the 5 greetings included in the stamp set…

The second card I made uses the same layout as the first and uses another greeting. I also want to mention that I “stamped on” the designer paper. A simple technique but one we forget. Adding something as simple as the birds to the paper, really adds to the card.

The third card adds a layer of cardstock and some texture. Using a card front cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″, I added some texture by “scoring” the lower portion … I scored at 1-1/4″ then turned the cardstock 180 degrees, then score at 1/2″, the move the piece back 1/8″ and score again. You will end up with 3 score lines (I turn my cardstock over so the score is raised).

I then stamped my greeting between the lines. Here is a view of all the dimension and texture we added to this card …

On the last of the four cards, I went wild with the texture! I used the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder, but if you look close … it could pass for pebbles, and I thought it would look great with this section of our designer paper.

And speaking of “pebbles” … I added the Pebbles Embellishments from the New Horizons Suite! Check out this texture … Aren’t those pebbles just perfect!?

OK … now I have one more card for you. During the video, Jenny commented that the back side of one of the squares looked “stormy”, so my next card highlights that piece of designer paper. Look close … I think there is a tornado dropping down (yikes!)

While the birds get the heck out of the storm … I thought that I would use the grasses dies from the suite as a silhouette. I let it hang off the side a bit to add some character … then I created the rain! I took my Wink of Stella and tapped it against a pen so it sprinkled over the designer paper.

Those white speckles are the Wink of Stella and I wish that you could see the sparkle … it’s amazing! And so is all of the different ways you can use this paper, the New Horizons product suite. Let me just say … “We’ve Only Just Begun”

Don’t forget … Sale-a-bration has begun and you will receive a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a qualifying purchase.

Thank you for hanging out with me today, and I hope you are just as excited as I am for this new suite, and that I’ve inspired you to get back in your stamp room!

Have a wonderful day ~

New Year … New Horizons Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am over the moon excited today!! Everyone’s favorite time of year is here … Sale-a-bration, but there’s more, the NEW January – June Mini Catalog also goes LIVE today!! There is sooo many cool bundles, suites and accessories in the catalog, I wasn’t sure where I wanted to start however, I grabbed my “favorite” designer paper in the catalog; New Horizons. It’s a WOW.

The New Horizons Designer paper is part of an entire suite which includes a bundle (stamp set & dies), the designer paper, embellishments and a ribbon pack. I will share a video that will show you all this suite has to offer … then I will be sharing a quick yet beautiful card that I made just for you today.

Was I right? Amazing … but I also want to share with you how easy this suite can be to use!! I also want to show that it’s perfect to use with other items you already have! Today’s card highlights the New Horizons Designer paper, the On the Horizon stamp set and the Beautiful Tree’s dies from the Annual Catalog! Oh yes, and I used the Black & White Gingham ribbon … I was thrilled that this carried over from the last mini 🙂

I began with a Basic Black cardbase, as I saw this design as a renewal … with the color in the sky and the grass turning green. I think this is the most intriguing part of this paper, you can interpret it as you want, and create from there!!

I attached the die cut tree and then my ribbon to the designer paper that I cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″. Then I stamped three little birds and my greeting onto the card front … the ribbon was a helper in aligning my stamp! Then I simply mounted it onto the base.

I feel in love with this paper, and then drawn into the bundle … If you would like to see even more ideas for this amazing suite, join me tonight at 6:30 Central Time for my Facebook Live … I will be highlighting this suite and showing some cool things you can do with it.

Thank you for dropping by and joining me, and I hope you accept my invitation to join me tonight on my Facebook page to discover more about this interesting suite!

Simply Sunday: Punched Hearts

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today we’re gettin’ a little punchy as we get ready for Valentines Day. A simple punched card is easy to make and turns out so cute. I used 4 different patterns from the Pattern Party Designer paper for my hearts and background … you’ve seen me use this several times in the past week.

Once I punched my designer paper hearts I used the scalloped heart punch to mat my hearts in Basic Black and really make my colors pop…. these two punches are sold together. The small polka dot designer paper is the backdrop for the entire card.

The greeting comes from the Lovely You stamp set from our Annual Catalog. Once I stamped my greeting, I fussy cut it, added a black mat and cut that as well.

All of these goodies I used for this card can be found in the annual catalog … even the cute little Pastel Pearls. The pull the Flirty Flamingo color out and compliment the Granny Apple Green hearts. Such an easy card to make but ohhhh so cute! Send it to cheer up a friend or to say Happy Valentines Day.

Thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to join me.

Have a wonderful day ~
