Petal Promenade in Gold

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I would like to share with you a card that I created using the Petal Promenade bundle.  I was inspired by so many cards on Pinterest that I just had to pull out this bundle and discover for myself how easy it was to create with it.

Today’s card was done in Very Vanilla and Gold Foil Cardstock with Gold Embossing …

The base is Very Vanilla which I’ve adhered a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Gold Foil sheet that was embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  The vanilla that is layered on top of our embossed gold, was heat embossed with gold embossing powder using VersaMark and the pretty diamond pattern in the stamp set.

Next comes the focal point … the heart of the card, where I heat embossed both the floral piece in the corner and the greeting.  The flower in the upper right-hand corner of the card was also heat embossed and die cut with the coordinating dies in the bundle.

Both the Very Vanilla pieces that were heat embossed were also cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. I love the delicate edge this creates and it actually coordinates with the stitched areas on the diamond pattern.

Take a moment to check out this beautiful stamp set and the coordinating die and the entire product suite on pages 206 and 207 of the 2018-19 Annual Catalog.

Thank you for joining me today … hope you have a beautiful day.

My Favorite Sale-a-bration item … By the Bay

Hello Stampin’ Friend ~

There are only a couple of days left to our Sale-a-bration event (ends March 31st). So I wanted to share all the goodies that are still available along with my favorite and some samples that I created using this … yes, it’s a stamp set.  By the Bay to be exact…

This card has been on fire on Pinterest (Thank You) and it is so simple to make.  All done in Night of Navy it makes a nice masculine card that would be great for Birthdays, Fathers Day or … Thinking of you.

My second of the three cards was the reason I picked this stamp set from the beginning, I thought it would go perfectly with my HIgh Tide stamp set.  I love lighthouses and this house looks like a beautiful lighthouse “house” to me …

On this card I used both the Aqua Painters and my Stampin’ Blends to color, and the lighthouse was stamped in front of the house.  However, that was not the picture in my head, so I came up with my third design …

There we go … This is what I had pictured in my head!! I wanted the lighthouse behind my cottage by the bay, so I used the masking technique.  You can find the entire blog post for this card HERE. It will take you step by step how I made this card.

There is something about lighthouses that warm my heart … maybe it’s the light that shines bright to bring the sailors into the shores safely… and there was something about this stamp set that spoke to me and said these two stamp sets needed to be together.

Thanks for hanging out with me for a while today, enjoy your day!

I’m Here for You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card to share with you from the Petal Promenade product suite … you can find this on pages 106-107 of the Annual Catalog.  And because of the many emails and phone calls I received … I also have a graphic for you that shows the pieces of the new “Storage” by Stampin’ Up!. I am thrilled to see how many of you are as excited as I am for this new product.

Let’s begin with our card today …

We start with our Smoky Slate card base and the images that were stamped on the base create a nice border.  Half of the images are covered with yet another piece of Smoky Slate that showcases the beautiful die image. The color pallet below is a beautiful as how it looks on the card.

Our flowers are stamped in Fresh Fig onto Petal Pink and then cut out with the coordinating dies.  The leaves were stamped and cut with the dies in Mossy Meadow. The focal point of flowers where then layered with the Designer Paper and embellished with the Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems.

A combination of these products will qualify you for a FREE Sale-a-bration item!  Here are a few more ideas for you showcasing the Petal Promenade product suite …

 

OK … Like I said, I’m thrilled how excited you all are over the new STORAGE by Stampin’ Up! I can’t wait for April 1st because these storage units have my fingers burning to enter and order!

What’s nice about this storage system is the pieces available to purchase allow you to build as you want. Here are the pieces and the cost of each …

I’ve decided to share this with you now because of all the questions that I’ve had. This will give you time to look it over before you order. But please, if you have any additional questions, you can contact me at anytime.  Which item will you begin with? I’m thinking either the Ink Pad or Stampin’ Blends trays … or both!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card for you … straight out of the Annual Catalog!!  I’m sharing this card from my website and it was created with the Time for Tea Bundle found on pages 14 and 15.  You will find an entire product suite on these pages.

Our color pallet includes Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand,  Whisper White and Vellum Cardstock … also included is the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The images were stamped and colored with our Watercolor Pencils before pulling out the Bigshot and cutting out the images with the coordinating die set.  So simply yet so cute!  Did you catch that touch of ribbon behind our greeting? It’s a fun way to highlight your greeting (and use up some scraps!)

I know that the Occasions catalog is amazing … but let’s not forget how many beautiful stamp sets and bundles we have in the Annual Catalog.  And … It’s still Sale-a-bration! We have a few days left, don’t miss out!

Thank you for stopping back today. Enjoy your Monday

 

 

Simply Sunday: Birthday Candles

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you are looking to make quick -n- easy birthday cards, look no further than your “Happy Birthday” Framelits die and your favorite designer paper! Today I have selected the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer paper.  It has bright party designs on one side, all-occasion designs with gold foil on the other side—all you need for glitzy and bold projects!

Coordinating colors: Basic Black, gold foil, Gray Granite, Lemon Lime Twist, Lovely Lipstick, Whisper White!  I chose the black and white candles with a touch of gold, perfect card for any age …

With a simple Basic Black base (everyone needs a little black dress for the party… right!) and the gold foil enhanced designer paper you are sure to be the hit of the party.  The candles are ageless but this card is for my nephew who turns 50 this year. I put a small piece of Vellum Cardstock behind the Birthday greeting so it showed off even more.

Such a fun and simple way to make a card and you can change who it will go to just by changing your designer paper.

Thank you for joining me today… I hope yours is a good one.

Friends and Butterflies …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I did not get my “alternative” project finished yet, however I do have a super cute card that we made at Cindy and Sarah’s stamping party (one of the Make -n- Takes. It’s super simple and perfect for your friend.  I’m using the Beauty Abounds stamp set and nothing says spring like “butterflies”

I stamped the background with the “Bokeh” dots … it just creates another layer of dimension. The focal point of the card is the beautiful butterfly designer paper that you can get for FREE during Sala-a-bration with a qualifying purchase.  So … how did I get that sparkle on there?  Good Question!!

There are two ways to do this technique which I call the Glimmer Designer Paper Technique and it’s one of my favorites because it creates such a “WOW” whenever I show it.

  1.  Grab your Silicone pad … you’ll want it for both ways. Place your designer paper onto the silicone pad and with your Snail adhesive – cover the entire piece of designer paper. Next, sprinkle with the Dazzling Diamonds glitter, tap off excess and gently rub it into the adhesive using your finger tip. Tap off excess again.
  2. The second way to do it is just switching adhesives, the rest is the same.  If you are covering a larger piece of designer paper, you will want to use the Multipurpose adhesive sheets. This is also super simple.  Peel off the first layer, lay your designer paper onto the adhesive sheet … then peel off the top layer and add glitter as in step one.

Besides the beautiful butterflies in this stamp set, the verbiage is perfect for sharing a card with your friend.  I added a little ribbon to the card and some rhinestones to jazz it up a bit.

And to create another layer of dimension … I added a piece of vellum behind the focal point of the card.  Hope you enjoyed this technique and you give it a try … it’s simple, it’s fun and it looks amazing!!

Thank you for taking time out of your day and share it with me by stopping by my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
