Scrapbooking Road Trip …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am going to share with you another one of my favorite items off the Weekly Deals list.

I love the Typeset Alphabet Dies … there is so much you can do with these, especially if you have school kids.  My grandkids use them for their school projects all the time!

Here a just a few of the projects I have made with my stampin’ groups.  For my first project, let’s go on a little road trip…

Road Trip - Sept ScrapClub

We used the alphabets as designed, by cutting out the letters, but we also used the reverse or negative of the alphabet to highlight the “R” in Road Trip.  You will also see the use of the Top Note die in the lower right hand corner.

Let’s see where our road trip is taking us ….

Wooo Hooo, a Badger Football Game!!  You can’t get any better than that!  I made this page with my granddaughter Shayla for a demonstration I was doing at a local college.

Now … wasn’t that a “HOOT”!

Nothing like a good road trip down memory lane.  The Typeset alphabet worked perfectly for our scrapbook pages.

I have reposted the Weekly Deals so you can view them again.  Don’t forget we also have the Blowout Sale and the Clearance Rack!  So many deals … so little time.  The new catalog is right around the corner.

My weekly deal favorites …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

On Wednesday I shared with you the weekly deals, today I want to share with you why these are some of my favorites!

First let me start with the “Heart Punch” … I love punches, they make creating cards so quick and easy.  Just a couple layers of cardstock, glimmer paper and a greeting!  Simple …

000_0766

Next is the Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper …What can I say, this is an awesome product!  The specialty paper is one sided but it has an embossed side.

You can leave it as is, and just add a greeting or you can emboss over the top of the embossing as was done on this card …

000_0293

 

Ok … if you think that is awesome (and it is) then grab a brayer, ink it up with your favorite color, and brayer that color over the top of this fabulous specialty paper.  The emboss on the paper, resists!  You can do this technique on “any” of the designs.  Check out this card…

So those are 2 of my favorites.  Hope you enjoyed the samples.

Ode to Friends …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share with you a beautiful card made especially for a friend, because some day’s we just want to drop a quick note to say hi.

I began with Whisper White cardstock and embossed a border using the “Framed Tulips” embossing folder.  I chose Pink Pirouette because it speaks softly … like a friend.

000_1108

I then chose the flower from the “Love & Sympathy” stamp set because I love the way the leaves flow.  I inked up the leaves only with the “Wild Wasabi” marker and stamped my image.

Using the “Petite Petals” punch from the Occasions catalog, I punched my flower.  To get the pretty petals …. place the punched flower in the palm of your hand and press the tip of a pen into the center.  I creates not only the petals, but a perfect center to place your pearl or rhinestone in.  I picked the pearl today.

000_1105

My “friends” greeting comes from the “Sweet Essentials” stamp set which is now on the retired list, and only the wood mount is still available (Clear is Sold Out).

I hope you enjoyed today’s simple but elegant card, and that it inspired you to connect with a friend.

Have a wonderful day ~

Dare to Dream …

combined-poppies-800

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Let me first send my thoughts and prayers on this Memorial Day to all the service members and their families, who have sacrificed so much to give us the freedoms we enjoy in this country.  I thank you as well.

Today’s card encourages the receiver to “Dare to Dream”, so whether it’s a graduation, a new job or someone moving into a whole new life experience this sweet and simple card will fit the bill.  It’s simplicity makes quite a statement.

000_1093

I have been choosing to showcase simpler cards lately because our summers seem so busy, especially at this time of year.  Use this quick -n- easy pattern with any Washi tape to create your card and get back to enjoying your summer.

I will say … it’s getting harder to pick stamp sets, because many on the retirement list are quickly selling out.  The “Loving Thoughts” stamp set used for my greeting only has the wood mount remaining … the clear mount set is sold out.

The yellow checked washi tape comes from the “Gingham Garden” designer collection and is currently on sale… 30% Off!!  That is good news.

000_1095

As you can see, I added a bit of the washi tape to the inside too.  Washi tape is so fun and easy to use!

My butterflies were created by layering the punched Bitty Butterfly over the Elegant Butterfly.  I just love the way this looks … oh, and I used the “Watercolor Wonder” designer paper to punch the butterflies out of.  I used the “string” of rhinestones for the butterfly body.

000_1098

I finished off my card by anchoring it with the 3 rhinestones at the bottom.  If you haven’t guessed my color pallet by now … I used Whisper White and the beautiful Daffodil Delight.

000_1093

I have a list of ingredients at the end of my post for you.  Just click on it to view more details or to begin shopping.  We only have a few days left before these items retire for good.  Please let me know if I can help you.

Have yourself a wonderful day.

“Happy” Spring is here …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I am so happy that spring is finally here … and you can never have too much happy!  And that is today’s card share!

000_1091

A simple card, but the flowers are so lovely I did not want to cover them up too much.  I am using the beautiful “Watercolor Wonder” designer series paper as my background.  The colors are Smoky Slate, Island Indigo, Gumball Green and Whisper White.

My greeting “You Can Never Have Too Much Happy” comes from the stamp set; Yippee Skippee.  The greeting is framed in a banner that I created using the “Banner Framelit Dies”.  Oh… that is so much easier than trying to cut a straight banner!

000_1092

I used the “Perfect Polka Dots” embossing folder on the Smoky Slate banner to create a bit of texture on the card.

I wanted to anchor my banner and balance out my card so I used the ever popular “Rhinestones”… adds a bit of glam too!  I colored my rhinestones with the new Blendabilities that will be available soon.

Here is a peek at the inside …

000_1089

We all have pieces of scrap left over when card making, but don’t throw them out…  Use them to decorate the inside of your card or your envelope.  It adds a nice touch to the inside and it creates a coordinating envelope!

Thank you for checking out my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s card share.

Have an awesome day ~
