Simply Sunday: Dainty Flowers

Good Morning Stampin’ Friends ~

Welcome to my Simply Sunday post of Dainty Flowers. You will find this beautiful paper in the Sale-a-bration catalog, and is FREE with a qualifying purchase of $50. Today kicks of several days of beautiful cards created using the Dainty Flowers Designer paper and the Dainty Delight Bundle.

Today the main focus is on the Dainty Flowers Designer Paper ….

I went a little darker than the Old Olive by using the Mossy Meadow which really highlights our floral Blushing Bride pattern. The flowers on our background paper mimics the floral piece in which we highlighted here.

This pretty patterned paper was cut from the center of the sheet that also has the floral oval designs. This paper was not embossed, the texture you see on it, is part of the paper design.

This floral piece measures 5″ x 3-3/4″ with a mat slightly larger. The greeting was stamped with Mossy Meadow and comes from the Dainty Delight bundle. I simply trimmed off the edges with my scissors at an angle. I used dimensionals on the right side of the piece.

I embellished the card with my Opaque Adhesive Backed Gems to add some drama… or should I say texture! lol It’s so easy to make beautiful cards using this gorgeous designer paper.

Thank you so very much for spending part of your Sunday with me. Enjoy your day!

Here is a list of the supplies used to create today’s card ….

Enjoy the Adventure Parade of Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Let’s get a close up of the Enjoy the Adventure cards … Today I will be sharing my cards from the LIVE along with the dimensions so you can recreate them for yourself because the Sale-a-bration and Mini catalogs have gone LIVE today!! Woo hooo … YOU can finally get your hands on your favorite stamps, dies and those awesome designer papers.

My first card was the “Thank You” card … the simplest of the bunch. The base comes from the Cards & Envelopes which coordinate with the Memories & More Card Pack. I simply cut down the 4″ x 6″ Thank you card to 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (so a 1/2″ off the top and 1/2″ off one side). I then colored in the THANK YOU with Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. Super Simple!

On to the next card, we begin with the Mango Melody and Petal Pink card base. These are scored for you so they fold nicely …

I took a second card base and cut off the front, then I cut the front down to 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ (you’ll get 2 from the front piece). I then layered the “heart” card which measure 3″ x 4″ … not cutting needed.

The rest is easy as I used the die cut adhesive backed elements from the sticker sheet included in the Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More Card Pack. Each of the elements were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then brushed with Wink of Stella.

The next card also starts with the Mango Melody and Petal Pink card base…

This card is all about layers … the bottom two layers are actually 2 of the 3″ x 4″ cards from the card pack. The two smaller pieces; the Petal Pink is 4″ x 1-3/4″ and was attached vertically, then the Mango Melody piece 3-1/4″ x 3/4″ was layered vertically. Both of these smaller pieces were cut from the 1/2 front that was left over from the second card!

The Happy Birthday (popped up) and Stars are elements from the sticker sheet. The three little dots come from the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots.

Now … I have one more card to share with you. If the first card was a bit too simple for you, this card will show you how you can get the same look, but a little more jacked up …

The card begins exactly how our first card was created, except I took the left over pieces cut off and found a full “THANK YOU” to trim down and color … this will give us more dimension. Then I punched a scalloped heart from vellum to place behind the “Thank You” so it stands out more.

It’s amazing how some simple changes can add so much to a card. These card packs are fun to play with, I better pull out a scrapbook before I use up all my pieces! lol

Thank you for joining me today. Which one of these cards is your favorite??

Here are the products used for today’s cards … Click on any one of them, it will take you to my OnLine store ….

Enjoy the Adventure Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

WOW … do I have some great cards to share with you today. I have taken the Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More Card Pack and turned the cards into “cards” you can send using the Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. Using the Card Pack you can quickly capture life’s special moments by scrapbooking … and the cards and envelopes and you can create quick and easy cards.

Join me to watch the replay of last nights Facebook LIVE where I share several cards cards I created using the Enjoy the Adventure Memories and More Card pack …

As promised, I have a cute card created with the two Memories and More packages and the Adorable Owls. This one was so easy to create, first the Mango Melody / Petal Pink card base from the Cards & Envelopes package, and then the so grateful card which I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up.

There was no extra cutting of cards to create this look … I just used the cards directly from the pack.

This sweet little owl (there are 3) from the Adorable Owls was stamped with Momento ink and colored with the Smoky Slate Combo pack, along with Balmy Blue for they eyes, Mango Melody for the Bow tie and then Daffodil Delight for the beck and feet.

The owl is fussy cut … which means no dies, you have to cut it out yourself.

I also added three of the Opaque Adhesive-backed Gems to draw in your eye and give the cards some additional texture. It’s so easy to create cute cards from these card packs … Both the Enjoy the Adventure and Adorable Owls will be available in just one day!! Woot Woot!

If you’re newer to stamping or if you just want to grab the Enjoy the Adventures packets so you can create your own quick cards. I hope you were inspired today with these designs.

When you stop back tomorrow, I’ll have dimension & more for the cards and a “stepped up” card for you!!

Thank you for taking time our of your day to join me.

Have a wonderful day ~

Be My Valentine Card with Adorable Owls

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am tickled pink to share today’s card with you. With Valentines Day approaching quicker than we’d like to think and I cannot get enough of these little owls from the Adorable Owls so they are highlighting my card again today. The Adorable Owls will be FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.

First let me start with the Sweet Talk Designer Paper … it’s on the Clearance Rack and is as adorable as these owls!

The sheet I chose has the two patterns you see … one on the front and one on the back, and then I used the Black Glitter Washi Tape from the Holiday catalog that retires on the 4th of this month. I used Real Red for my card base to coordinate with the Sweet Talk Designer paper. Let’s take a look …. Now let’s talk about our Adorable Owls!!

I stamp them with Momento Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and then color them with our Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers. Yesterday I used the Smoky Slate Combo pack to color and today chose the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends.

I used 200 from the Deep Tones, and 500 from the Medium Tones Combo. The Natural Tones come in combo packs of two, but they are two different tones. I begin coloring with the 500 Medium tone and then color in my darker 200 marker, then I go back over with the lighter color. I also use the color lifter if I think it’s too dark or go outside of the lines, so the areas that look “highlighted” are actually done with the color lifter.

I decked out my gent with a nice blue bow tie to match his eyes – I used Light Balmy Blue and Light Night of Navy for both. My lady has Dark Pool Party and Dark Bermuda Bay eyes and she is adorned with a necklace created with the NEW Opaque Adhesive Backed Gems.

My greeting comes from the NEW Share a Milkshake bundle and stamped with StazOn ink (doesn’t smear on vellum) and then die cut using the 2nd largest circle from Stylish Shapes. This card uses the Sweet Talk from the Clearance Rack for a sweet Valentines Day and the Adorable Owls… they sure named them correctly!

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.

Have a wonderful week ~

Here is a list of supplies used to create this card …. The Share a Milkshake and Opaque Gems will be available January 5th, and the Washi Tape retires after the 4th. The Adorable Owls will be FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.

Simply Sunday: Fancy Flora Designer Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy New Year!! Today I have four cards to share with you that I created using the Fancy Flora Designer paper … yes, it is the paper you’ve seen the past couple days. This pattern is bright and colorful and full of texture. I paired it with the Adorable Owls, Gnomes and Banners!

I began with one pattern from the Fancy Flora paper and cut it into 4 – 3″ x 3″ piece …. thus the start of your 4 cards. I chose Basic Gray as my mat behind each of the pieces for my cards. The cards are simple yet cute cards so you will fall in love with how cute they are and how easy they are to make.

By matting the Fancy Flora designer paper it reminds me of a “framed” picture and the pattern is so fun and whimsical I thought it was perfect to add our Adorable Owl that are in the Sale-a-bration catalog that goes LIVE on January 5th. I used our Stampin’ Blends to color my owl and picked the Fresh Freesia cardstock for my base…. It’s Your Day was stamped three times. Keepin’ it Simple.

My second card has a different cards base … Soft Sea Foam. All of the colors I am using in todays cards coordinate with the designer paper. Again, using basic stamping and Stampin’ Blends for the owl.

Now we’re going to change it up a bit and use one of our gnomes ….

Isn’t it amazing how the same small piece of designer paper looks different when you add different elements. Owl little owls had a spring vibe and here you get a bit of winter … just like our weather! Snow one day … 40 degrees the next. Card base is Balmy Blue!

For my last card, I stepped it up a bit more …

The card base is Basic Gray and the card front is Fresh Freesia and then embossed with the Textured Paint Embossing Folder. I used the Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, and Fresh Freesia scraps to make my banners and the greeting comes from the Tulip stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my quickie cards! We only have a few more days until the new catalogs go LIVE. I just adore those Adorable Owls and now you have seen that you can go from “fancy” to “fun” with the Fancy Flora designer paper.

Have a Happy New Year and a great day ~

Sending Smiles of Gold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

On this eve of the New Year, I am so excited to share another Sending Smiles Card with a touch of Gold! The Gold comes from the New Jan-April Mini Catalog on page 15 … it has the most beautiful shimmer! Stampin’ Up! calls it Fine Shimmer and it comes in 12 x 12 size and you get 2 of each of the three colors: Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia and Gold.

I teamed it up with the Fancy Flora designer paper found on the same page in the Mini catalog, so you know that the colors will coordinate! Makes our life so much easier that way right. No need to stress when designing our cards. I invite you to case (copy) my designs so you can start creating right away.

You can see that the layout is the same as yesterday’s card with just a few changes….

My card base is Evening Evergreen and my mat for the “same” Fancy Flora designer paper is the Gold Fine Shimmer paper. I also replaced the ribbon with a Evening Evergreen banner. Yesterdays card was “stamped” onto the Soft Succulent, where today I used Evening Evergreen and cut my Gold from the center of my mat (paper saving technique).

Layering the detailed die cut “sending” against the die cut mat creates a bold statement and adds some texture to your card. I love sentiments and when you can die cut them it really creates a WOW on your card …

The greetings from both cards that I stamped onto the Basic White comes from the Sending Smiles bundle. Yesterday’s was die cut, and I just cut the ends at an angle for today’s card. It’s these subtle changes to your cards that can make it look like a whole new card. Again, taking the stress out of trying to come up with designs.

I can’t wait for the New Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs to go LIVE on January 5th … there is so much to see. The Sending Smiles is already available in our current Annual Catalog and is such a fun bundle to play with … with or without the Gold!

Thank you for spending part of your day with me today. I hope your as excited for the new catalogs as I am, and your ready to play with the Sending Smiles and Gold Fine Glimmer paper (and more).

Happy New Years Eve ~

Here are the supplies I used for today’s card that are currently available…

Sending Smiles with Embossed Designer Paper …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared some different ways to use our Embossing Folders, so today I thought I would share another use! I simply emboss my Designer paper! Using an embossing folder to compliment and add texture to your designer paper is a great way to elevate your card.

Today’s card highlights the upcoming Fancy Flora Designer paper and the Painted Texture Embossing Folder that is in our Annual Catalog ….

I love the texture that the Painted Texture embossing folder really highlights the brush strokes on our “painted” designer paper. I can’t wait for you to be able to order on January 5th … you will want this paper in your stamp room.

My cardbase is Soft Succulent and the mat for the designer paper is the Evening Evergreen. I used the Sending Smiles bundle for my greeting … it is stamped in Evening Evergreen onto the Soft Succulent cardstock. This bundle is in the Annual Catalog and this is the first time I’m actually playing with it. I popped up greeting with Mini Dimensionals and secured it over the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon.

The card was finished off with 3 of the white Adhesive Backed Milky Dots that are in the new Jan-April Mini Catalog that will be available January 5th. These are the same embellishments and designer paper that I used on Wednesday’s Card …

Stop back tomorrow as I share an “elevated” take on today’s Soft Succulent card. Until then … Have a great day!

Thanks for joining me today ~

Here is a list of supplies that I used in today’s card. It does not show the Designer Paper or Adhesive Dots as they are not available until January 5th.

Embossing Folders: Discover the Possibilities

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing different ways to use your embossing folders. There are so many possibilities when it comes to using embossing folders. They are a special crafting tool that can’t be forgotten!

Concept artist Leana used the Elegant Eucalyptus Embossing Folder on white cardstock and colored in the raised embossed image with Stampin’ Blends. This technique gave her card a unique center piece!

Concept artist Christa used the Merry Melody Embossing Folder on gold foil. She then cut it into strips and made it an eye-catching accent on her card front!

Did you ever think of using an embossing folder as a sentiment for your card? Our concept artist Rebecca used the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folder and a sponge dauber to highlight the embossed words. She then chose her favorite part of the folder, fussy cut her sentiment, and made it the center of her card.

Most people think embossing folders are only good for card backgrounds, but they hold so much more potential! How will you transform an embossing folder into something new? Share in a comment below!

Thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by! Enjoy your day ~

Sneak Peek: Celebrating You Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m excited to share a Sneak Peek with my Celebrating You Card today. It’s a fun combination of what’s in our Annual Catalog with some of our beautiful NEW items in the Jan-April Mini Catalog.

If you joined me for my Facebook LIVE yesterday you would have gotten a good look up close to some of these ….

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the beautiful “Fancy Flora” 6 x 6 Designer Paper (160413) it’s so pretty and I love the painted look of it. I paired this pattern with Starry Sky even though the coordinating colors are Night of Navy and Orchid Oasis … I thought it made a bolder statement, and with the varying shades of blue I though it matched well.

Now, let’s talk about that butterfly – I chose one from the Brilliant Wings dies and had to try the NEW Fine Shimmer paper (160428). I misquoted you the colors last night, they are actually Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia, and Gold … that makes much more sense!! AND it coordinates with the Fancy Flora designer paper I used (it’s even on the same page in the Mini Catalog).

I’m hoping those butterflies don’t fly away when the Annual Catalog retires in April … if you don’t have them already, you will want them in your dies collection.

I had to get a close up to show you the FINE glimmer on this paper… it really is stunning. My lighting does it no justice (I see an investment in some new lighting equipment needed – lol). You will also see the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots … I love those colors!!

I used the greeting from our Celebrating You stamp set and punched it with the Double Oval Punch. You could also stamp directly onto the paper but I didn’t want to loose that greeting because your eye is drawn right to the butterfly.

I hope you enjoyed this quick sneak peek and if you’d like to see the REPLAY of last nights “Walk Through” you can head over to my Facebook page or I’ll have it posted tomorrow on YouTube.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day ~

Daisy Garden: Spotlighting Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Tired of the cold? I’ve got the perfect card to warm you up … bright and colorful highlighting the Daisy Garden Stamp set and the Spotlight Technique! This little cutie will make you yearn for Spring!

*** I love this technique – It’s a great way to add a pop of color to images that one would think needs the entire image to be colored, so it’s quick and easy and still beautiful.

Measurements

  • Parakeet Party:  5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼” 
  • Polished Pink: 4” x 5 ¼”  
  • 2 pieces of Shimmery White: 3 ¾” x 5”

Instructions:

  • Stamp the Daisy Garden Stamp on 2 separate pieces of Shimmery White cardstock. (Use the Stamparatus to ensure that you have a nicely stamped dark image. If a part of the image is not stamped nicely on the cardstock, you can re-ink and stamp it again.)
  • Use the 3 smallest sizes of the circle dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies cut out pieces from the 2nd stamped Shimmery White cardstock.
  • Colour the flowers and leaves that are in the cut-out circles using Stampin’ Blends. (Tip: I used the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend to fill all the “white space” on the circles.)
  • Use the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add shimmer to the flower petals.
  • Add a piece of ribbon to the fully stamped Shimmery White cardstock. Take a smaller piece of ribbon and tie a knot on the right hand side of the card.
  • Add the Stitched Circles on top of the cardstock using Dimensionals.
  • Adhere the Shimmery White cardstock to the Parakeet Party cardstock.
  • Add the layers to the card using Stampin’ Seal Adhesive.
  • Stamp the greeting from Sweet Songbirds stamp set on a small piece of Shimmery White cardstock using the Polished Pink ink. (I cut the cardstock to the correct size after stamping it)

I hope this card inspires you to try out this technique … it really is quite simple, and can really add a pop of color! What a great way to warm someones day when it’s so cold outside (at least it is where I am) lol

Thanks for joining me today, hope your day is a good one.

Here is a list of supplies used to create this card ….

Merry Christmas Eve …

Merry Christmas Eve my Friends ~

I hope everyone is fairing well in this crazy weather … I’m not the biggest fan of snow and cold, but it’s crazy cold here! I had to take a little break to warm up so I made some “Christmas Poke” Cake and Deviled Eggs for the family get together.

Today I’m highlighting the “Perched in a Tree” bundle. Let’s get started 🙂 The first card was cased from Pinterest and I just loved the cool color and blue and paired with white.

Cardbase is your A2 size (8-1/2″ x 11″) and the die cut piece was cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and so was the pretty Snowflake Specialty Vellum, which is also on the Last Chance List 😦 The blue is the Starry Sky … so pretty. This is a great card choice if you like layers but need something on the simple side to get your Christmas cards done quickly.

My next card I changed up to show this beautiful bundle can be kept in your stamp collection all year long ….

With a simple change of sentiment you can change the entire feel of your card, and easily turn this from a Christmas card to a Birthday Card!

Thank you for spending a part of your day with me, enjoy this holiday with your family and friends ~

  • Stamp Happy Birthday greeting on piece of scrap and cut ends at an angle.

Two Layouts Using the Book Binder Fun Fold

Hello Stampin’ Friends and Happy Monday ~

Today I’m going to share my replay of this Quick & Easy Fun Fold and all the dimensions and instructions with you because it highlights one of our beautiful designer papers that resurfaced in our Clearance Rack!! If you already have this pretty paper then here is a video and the two cards I made.

Let’s take a look at the video now …

Book Binder Fun Fold … Super Simple!

HORIZONTAL PROFILE (Above) How It’s Made  

  • Cut a 4-1/4 x 11″ piece of Soft Succulent cardstock for the card base. Score at 5-1/2 and 4-1/4.  Crease folds and add adhesive to the inside of the two scored lines.  The 4-1/4″ score line should be facing out on the front of the card. 
  • Cut a 4 x 4″ piece of Designer Paper (or cardstock) and adhere to card front. 
  • Cut a 1″ x 4″ strip from the tulip design designer series paper and adhere to the left side margin on the card front.

PORTRAIT PROFILE (Above) How It’s Made  

  • Cut a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock for the card base. Score at 4-1/4” and 5-1/4”.  Crease folds and add adhesive to the inside of the two scored lines… You can add your ribbon at this time.
  • To layer card front; cut Basic White 5-1/4” x 3” (Cut 2: one for inside and one for mat on front)  Cut Designer paper to 5” x 2-3/4” to layer on top of white.
  • Binder area is cut in Basic White at 5-1/4” x 3/4” and I embossed with “Brick” embossing folder for some texture.

Cool … right! Now, let me share another layout you can use when creating the Book Binder Fun Fold. It’s another portrait however the card stock is cut at the usual 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and it is scored at the 4-1/4″ and 5-1/4″ … now you will just position your “binder” to the “TOP” of your card.

The designer paper is cut at the same dimensions as well … however, you need to make sure you are “cutting” to the designer of the paper. On this card, my “binder” actually has the same designer paper, I just flipped it over. The greeting also comes from the Flowing Flowers stamp set, same as we used on our first card.

Enjoy making this fun fold … it’s really easy, and you’re going to have a blast creating with all your beautiful designer papers. Don’t forget, you can add in your embossing folders, die cuts or hand stamped items!
