Dino-mite Kids Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s time to have a little fun … and our next card is Dyno-mite!! lol  I got the Dinoroar Suite products because my great grandson is head over heals in love with Dinosaurs, so how could I resist.  However, I didn’t know how much fun I would have making cards and projects with this suite.  Todays card is pretty simple, I began with the whimsical Dinoroar Designer Series paper …

These cute little critters will put a smile on anyone’s face.  I attached my designer paper onto the Lovely Lipstick card base.  I also used Lovely Lipstick to stamp my greeting.  This was cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies. I also used the scallop oval to cut the Mango Medley mat.  I popped up my greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added a leaf from the Dinoroar Enamel Shapes that are included in the product suite.

The entire suite includes that Dino Days Stamp set, Dino Dies, Dinoroar Designer Series Paper, the Denim Ribbon and Dinoroar Enamal Shapes.  This suite or the bundle (stamps & dies) will qualify your for the Bonus Days Coupon … and a Virtual Rewards point from me.

Thanks for being a Friend-a-saurus and checking out my blog today …

Be sure to stop back tomorrow, I will have another goodie to share from this fun product suite.

Have a “roaring” good day!



Dazzling Magnolia Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have yet another card to share with you from the Magnolia Lane product suite. Today’s card features many of the items included in the suite such as the Good Morning Magnolia bundle (Stamp Set and Dies), the Magnolia Lane Cards and Envelopes, and the twine from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.

I began with the cards and envelopes … I love the ribbons of silver that are embossed onto the card front.  I used this to frame my “Sparkle” Glimmer paper. Then I heat embossed the Magnolia in Whisper White onto our Vellum cardstock.  I used the “Light” So Saffron Stampin’ Blend that comes in the suite to color the center of my flower.

The next step was to flip over our embossed flower and color the backside with Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo packs.  Coloring from the back creates a slightly softer look and keeps the color off of the white embossed lines…. LOVE IT!!

For my simple “Hello” … I stamped it in Flirty Flamingo and used the Layering Circle Dies to cut it out and mat it with the Silver Foil.  The silver mat ties in the silver embossing on the card front.  Then just a little twine behind the greeting to finish off my card.

The combination of the vellum and sparkle really turns this natural background into something a little more glamourous … and it works!!

Thank you for stopping back today, hope your day is a good one!

Simply Sunday: Hello Magnolia Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I would like to share with you a beautiful card that we made in our Stampin’ Club this month.  It is simple yet elegant, done in black and white with a pop of color … just like that “Little Black Dress” that we all need and a touch of embellishing.  I also am including photos and instructions to you can start creating this card right away …

You begin with simply the Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock … and only 3 pieces to make today’s card.  A half sheet of Whisper White (Cut: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) and a smaller piece (Cut: 4″ x 2-3/4″) and Basic Black (Cut: 4-1/4″ – 3″) which you will use to “mat” the smaller Whisper White.

Fold your card in half and burnish it at the fold so that it lays very flat.  Then add a touch of Snail Adhesive to the smaller piece of Whisper White … this is only to hold you 2 pieces together while stamping, you want to take it back off later.

I lay my stamps “rubber up” while I ink … this gives you the perfect view of how much ink you are putting onto your stamp, and to see that it is applied evenly.  Makes for a much better stamped image (and it’s easier than lifting that big block over a small ink pad).

You’ll want to stamp this somewhat in the lower left hand corner so you have room for your greeting …

Once you have stamped your image and your greeting, you are ready to color …

I began with adding yellow to the center of the flower. You can use your Stampin’ Blends or Stampin’ Write Markers in your favorite shade of yellow.  I used Pineapple Punch on mine.

Next you will use your Sponge Daubers to color the flower (Petal Pink) and the leaves (Old Olive).

Gently pull the dauber over the petals / leaves to add a touch of color … we just wanted to add a little color to draw the eye in but want the magnificient Magnolia to be the focal point of the card.

When your sponging is complete, you can now pull off the small piece and adhere it to your Black mat … then you can mount that directly onto your card front, aligning the stamped image.

Now it’s time to add some accessories to your little black dress … “embellish your card” with a little Wink of Stella over the flower petals and a few rhinestones around the card for a little bling! Plus, it balances out your card nicely.

You will be amazed at how simple it is to create this beautiful card.  The entire Magnolia suite is amazing and a “must” in my stamp collection … how about yours?  If you’d like to see more samples that I have created, just enter “Magnolia Lane” in the search box at the top of my blog and it will pull up all of my posts that have “magnolia” in it!!

Thank you so much for joining me today!

I hope you have a beautiful Sunday … Enjoy!



Magnolia Blooms

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you a great new bundle: the Magnolia Blooms Cards bundle …

This kit contains the Magnolia Blooms Photopolymer stamp set, Mossy Meadow & Soft Suede Stampin’ Spots, Magnolia Lane Cards & More, Clear Block D and a Snail Adhesive …. everything you need to start stamping! The perfect bundle for beginners!

Grab a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage and join me as I share this all with you today.  Let’s begin with my cards…

My first one is simply stamping the “Thank You” three times, the design is pre-printed on the card.  I added a quick stamped image onto my envelope as well. Both were stamped in the Soft Suede ink pad that was included in the bundle.

Both of my card were created using only items in the bundle, as I stated earlier “everything” you need to create these cards and more is included in the bundle!

I love how the flowers look like they have distance between them, giving the card a look of dimension … I simply stamped the Happy Birthday greeting with the Mossy Meadow ink pad included in the bundle.

I also have a video to share with you created by Stampin’ Up! This video was made for beginner stampers but gives you some great tips and information about this kit …

The video showed additional samples to create with this bundle, I used the floral pre-printed cards for both of my cards but the other side is perfect if you want to stamp the flowers yourself, like shown in the video.

This bundle coordinates beautifully with the Magnolia Lane product suite.  This may be a beginners kit but if you’re an avid stamper, I’m sure you’ll want both in your card collection!  You know what, this makes the PERFECT gift if you want to get your friends or family members into stamping. It includes “everything” you need to start stamping, and it’s a beautiful stamp set with a pretty font!

Hope you enjoyed the samples … the Magnolia product line just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter.

I will be back with more samples from the Magnolia Blooms and the Magnolia Lane product suite during the next few days.

Have yourself a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Check out these Cruise Swaps …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you a little more from my trip in the form of card samples!! I wish I knew who created these fabulous samples so I could give them credit, because I love their creations!!

I am regretting that I did not get in on the Incentive Trip Swap but I had so much going on with work before I left …. but swaps were posted in our gathering room so I picked out 3 really cute cards.

The first is from one of my favorite sets in the Annual Catalog, the Sailing Home Bundle.  You can find that on page 145.  Don’t have your catalog yet?  Contact me!! I love her layers and the texture she has added to the card. I just love it!

The second of the three I’m sharing today is from the Dino Days Bundle on page 99. This is such a cute suite … I’ll be sharing more with you as my great-grandson is head over heels in love with dinosaurs! Don’t you love they fold of this card …. adds extra fun to the card!

The last sample I want to share with you is too stinkin’ cute …  It was created with the Over the Moon stamp set found on page 32. I think that this would make the perfect little gift at a birthday party (who doesn’t love ) or how about a 4-H project!! Cute hand-out at the County or State Fairs as well.

I hope you enjoyed these cute samples as much as I did when I saw them!!

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