Simply Sunday: Paper Pumpkin Alternative Part 1

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry for the late post but I had some technical difficulties but I wanted to share so I worked on it till I got it solved! Never under estimate the power of a determined stamper!!

Yesterday I shared the Paper Pumpkin video with ou and promised alternatives today for my Simply Sunday …

There is nothing simpler than a kit that comes right to you and is packed with everything you need to create awesome projects! Here is the first of 4 card designs included in the July 2017 kit …

I actually did the washi tape on the circle first (instead of the stamping) and then placed the circle and “hooray” onto the card so I knew just where I wanted to stamp my starburst images! Then I stamped the little greeting and assembled.

Here is the card from which the circle came from and the second of 4 designs …

The first thing I did on this card was to place the white front onto the blue card base along with the wood mountain, so I could see exactly where I wanted to stamp my clouds. Once I got the first cloud placed, I removed everything and stamped a few more clouds.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this kit was “Shaker Cards” so I teamed that up with the beautiful “Color Theory” bundle. Here is my alternative to the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit …

This card was super simple to make! Everything is ready for you … I added a window sheet to the back of the white piece and then wrapped the “Foam Adhesive Strips” around the circle.  I also added some around the edges so everything was at the same height.

The snowflakes were cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and highlighted with the Faceted Gems!

Thanks for hanging around today, I hope you enjoyed my vision of this kit! I will be back tomorrow with the second half of the 4 cards.

Have a wonderful evening ~

Crushin’ Delightful Daisy!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share a card with you that our “Color Theory” Class made on Wednesday night.  What a great night it was … spending an evening stamping with such wonderful people is the main reason I’ve been a demonstrator for over 17 years … Can’t image this business without my stampin’ friends.

Since many of my stampers where at the “Delightful Daisy” class … I thought my first card should be a fun representation of both classes!! I took the designer paper and greeting from the  “Color Theory” Class and of course the “Daisy” punch to create our first card …

I thought the pattern with the white lines would compliment the daisy nicely, so that was my choice. The greeting was stamped in Crushed Curry and die cut from the Ovals Collection.

Of course the double punch of the daisy for layering and then embellished with faceted gem and can be colored with a sharpie.

It was a hit with the class, cute -n- simple! Hope you enjoyed it too!

Thanks much for stopping by …

Hope your Friday is awesome and the perfect kick-off to the weekend!

Snowflakes in July

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful day yesterday! I picked up my sister Eileen and escaped for a little day trip to Baraboo! We did the Circus World Museum and the Merrimac Ferry … it was a good day!

Sunday I shared my Daisy card with you and said I would show you how versatile the Delightful Daisy Designer paper could be, well, I teamed it up with the amazing Colorful Seasons bundle from the Color Theory Suite and here is the result …

At first glance at the designer paper I got the feeling of a pretty snowfall … the beautiful new Tranquil Tide color, adds to the softness of a snowfall. Kind of brought me back to the days when I was a kid and loved to watch the snow first fall.

The greeting comes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and was stamped in Tranquil Tide Ink. It was cut out with one of the oval shapes from the Stitched Framelits dies.

I made the snowflakes from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  When cutting from the Glimmer paper, I cut from the back (not the glittery side) because it cuts through easier. The new Faceted Gems were added to the snowflakes for even more sparkle and texture.

Another simple layout but the outcome is beautiful. With the heat wave that will soon be upon us … the thought of pretty snowflakes might be a little comforting!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by today!

Simply Sunday: Daisy’s Best

Hello Stampin’ friends ~

I hope you are having a beautiful day … Sunday’s are always a favorite of mine, they just seems to be more relaxing.

Yesterday I shared a card from the Delightful Daisy bundle, and although the bundle is not available at this time, there are plenty of other goodies in this product suite that you can play with.

Today we are going to see more of the Designer Series paper. The Delightful Daisy Designer paper has so many beautiful patterns that can be used year round (You’ll see what I mean tomorrow!).

This beautiful patterned paper with the big yellow daisies create the perfect background for a quick -n- easy card. I teamed up the paper with the Label Me Pretty bundle. This is another new bundle that can be used for so many different projects.

I tucked a strip of the new Old Olive Mimi Chevron ribbon … you will find this in the Color Theory Suite. So many of the new stamp sets and product suites coordinate so nicely together!

Well I’m off so you can enjoy your Sunday … thank you for sharing part of yours with me.

See you tomorrow ~
