Cheers Card

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.

How Sweet It Is …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have some really “sweet” projects to share with you.  I just started playing with the bundle over the weekend and let me tell you, it’s so cute, the colors are fun and the combination of it all is just “tasty”.  We are using the “How Sweet It Is” product suite found on pages 14 and 15 of the Occasions catalog.

Oh my gosh … a jar full of Jelly Beans … I feel like I’m at work!  I must admit, it’s not just because I work in a Candy Store that I was attracted to the Sweetest Thing Bundle, it’s just fun.  You can cut out the jars already filled on the designer paper or you can stamp your own jar and fill it with anything from Jelly Beans to Gummi Bears!

Treat your favorite people to sweet messages and when you Bundle, You save! Buy these two coordinating products and save 10%.

This product suite also comes with some delicious designer paper and coordinating reversible ribbon in Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green.  If that isn’t enough, we also have some coordinating Sweet Pins and Tags … oh so cute and you will see how they were used below.

From the pages of the Occasions catalog …

The cute little jar tags can easily be turned into cute cards!!  I am just beginning to explore all of the wonderful components of this product suite … so far, so fun!  I will be sharing my projects at a later date.

So may cute projects on this page … which is your favorite?

I’m so glad your stopped in today to join me, it was so “sweet” of you.

Have a sweet day ~
