A Special Note …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Saturday … and for some of us, an extra long weekend! No work on Monday 🙂 Happy Face!!  I love when I can spend more time in my stamping room and play with my new stampin’ stuff.

Today, I have a beautiful card to share with you. We made this card during my “Floral Phrases” class. The focus of the class was to illustrate the different ways that you could use this awesome bundle.

This card was simple to make but looks extravagant. We begin with the Night of Navy cardstock – cut lengthwise. The inside white and white for the front are both cut at 4″ x 5-1/4″.

000_3623

Place one of the white sheets on the the New BigShot platform and topped with the Precision Base Plate. The Precision Base Plate will deliver improved performance with this detailed die, giving you the extra fine cut. Place each of the floral dies at the end of the cardstock … there will be a space between them.

Once cut, I used the Die Brush to remove the small cut pieces from the dies. I applied the cut piece to the front of the card using my Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped my greeting from the stamp set onto a 1″ strip of Whisper White and attached it directly to the card. Add a few Pearls and your done with the front … that quick and easy, with beautiful results.

000_3624

The inside of the card has a strip of the coordinating Designer Series Paper – Floral Boutique and another of the greetings/verses that come with the Floral Phrases stamp set. This is the first bundle that caught my eye when I first got my annual catalog … I love it!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the beautiful sunshine (I hope it’s shining by you too).

Blue Hydrangea …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As promised, I am going to share another card I created to display at my THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES class. You will also get a peek at the 3 cards that we made …

000_3576

During class our stampers learned several tips on how to use the stamp set and coordinating dies … I will share that with you tomorrow so be sure to stop back. Today I’m showing you how simple it is to create a beautiful Hydrangea card.

We begin by simply sponging some Marina Mist onto Soft Sky … it gives beautiful multi-color blue hues for your flower. Once dry, and it doesn’t take long at all, we placed our framelit over the sponged area and cut out our flower … SIMPLE!

000_3583

We embellished the flower with the smallest of pearls from the Basic Pearls sheet. I love the Pearls and the Rhinestones … they are simple to use, and very inexpensive to add a touch of bling / beauty to any card.

The background was done in Whisper White and embossed with the “Sparkle” embossing folder. There are so many folders you could use! Another would be the “Petal Burst” … experiment and have fun.

000_3579

We attached our flower by “rolling” the glue dots … they hold beautifully and when rolled, they give a little lift to the flower and adds a bit more dimension to the card.

The greeting comes from the THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES stamp set. I can’t say it enough, if you love “Lovely As a Tree” … you will definitely want to add this bundle to your collection! Just click on the link below to purchase and I will send you a “Thank You” gift in the mail.

Please let me know if you have any questions on this beautiful “Limited Time” bundle, or anything else. I’m here to help.

Thank you for stopping back today, I hope yours is a good one.

Simply Sunday: Congratulations

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a card with you, that you may find surprising to find on my Simply Sunday post. But just so you know, what looks like you put so much time into, it was quite simple!

Let’s begin with our “Floral Boutique Suite” …This is one of the cards from my Floral Boutique class.

000_3558

You’ll find the entire product suite on page 76 and 77 of our annual catalog. Our core colors are Whisper White and Night of Navy, so make sure you pull out the cardstock and coordinating ink.

You’ll cut your cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half to create a “tent” fold. You will also need to cut a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ to slide behind the front of your card. You’ll emboss the spray of flowers folder from the “Floral Affection” tolder set.

000_3562

Next you will cut the smaller piece of the die set at the bottom of your card, this is where the Navy goes – behind the design … just watch those beautiful flowers pop. Before you secure that down, be sure you add your white ribbon.

Now you’re free to stamp all your images, inside and out. The greeting “Congratulations” fits so nicely between the two swags of flowers … Love it!

000_3563

I wanted to add even more texture so I punched out the butterflies using the coordinating Designer Series Paper – “Floral Boutique” and vellum.

000_3567

I added a string of pearls to my butterfly for the body and to complete the card I just added one of the beautiful “Metal Rimmed Pearls” to highlight the beautiful die cut. It is so delicate, so pretty.

I hope my card inspired you to explore the beauty of this product suite, either to use yours to the fullest or to purchase one.  So many ways you can use this.

Thank you for taking time out of  your Sunday to stop by.

Have a beautiful day!

The Smallest Things …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today’s card is created with the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set and coordinating punch. This is one of the bundles you can purchase and save 10% right off the top!

Don’t forget that the Bonus Days are going on now and all purchases of $50 (before Shipping & Taxes) will get you a coupon worth $5 to spend next month!

000_3535

A simple card really, I began with a Whisper White base and a Soft Sky mat. The stem and leaves were stamped with Garden Green. I then set out to create my flower.

The flower was punched from Whisper White … 3 larger petals and 2 smaller petals. The center of the flower was punched from the smaller petal on the punch out of Crushed Curry cardstock. And finally the base of the flower was punched out of Garden Green from the star like image on the punch.

I put a dab of adhesive onto the bottom part of each of my 3 larger petals, put them together and fanning them out slightly to create the back of my flower.  With a dimensional… I added the Curry petal in the center.

000_3537

I then began the front piece of the flower … the two pieces were adhered together and  fanned it out to cover the center piece and then popped them up with dimensionals as well.

To complete the flower, I wrapped the star like image around the front and the back of my flower and curled up the sides as much as I could so it appears the flower is sitting inside of it. This image really shows the dimension of the card nicely, including our banner.

The banner was punched from our triple banner punch and stamped in Garden Green with the words from the “Layering Love” stamp set. I love the wording in the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set, however I wanted to use this verse because it fit so well with just a single flower. The banner was anchored with 2 pearls to complete the card.

Hope you enjoyed. Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to hear what you think.

Thank you for checking in on my blog today…

Have a good one!

STAMPIN’ SUPPLY HIGHLIGHTS …

Throwback Thursday: Tea Anyone?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Had a wonderful night stampin’ with my Technique club last night. A wonderful group of ladies and it was just what I needed … I’ve been working hard in my stampin’ studio on my retreat and it was so nice to interact with my stampin’ friends face to face. Wish I could have you all over!

Today for Throwback Thursday, we are going back to March 2012 to the “Tea Shoppe” stamp set … oh I loved this set! Here are some of the cards that we made using this set!

Today we have the “A Nice Cuppa” stamp set, and you can bundle it with the “Cups & Kettles” Framlits Dies…. What did we do before them!? Lots of fussy cutting! Ugh!  I LOVE FRAMELITS & PUNCHES!

000_1082

This fun layout and color combination is what I really loved with this next card! Early Espresso (what else) and Pool Party … so nice together.

000_1086

There were so many cute cards created with this set but this will be my favorite. Did you notice the corner of the card front is tucked behind the “you suit me to a tea” …. hmmm!

000_1088A

That’s because it locks the fun fold together. It’s like a card inside of a card (sorry for the poor photo quality) and the back is embossed to highlight the inner card. Unique and fun.

Now with the fun designer paper from the “Have a Cuppa” product suite … it all coordinates including the stamp set, cardstock and embellishments!  Check it out on page 34 and 35 of the Occasions Catalog. (click on the catalog on the right to view).

I hope this inspired you to create some fun projects using our new “tea cup” stamp set!

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me.

Have a good one ~

Beware of Black Cats!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another cute Halloween card to share and just in case you missed them yesterday … the Weekly Deals will also be featured.

My card today highlights the fabulous bundle; Happy Scenes stamp set & Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies, and it that isn’t fun enough … I’ve lured the black cat over from the Festive Fireside Framelits too!

000_2669

I wanted my black cat to be peering out the window on Halloween night, and what would one expect to see but a creepy little spider and a full moon! The full moon was created with the 1-1/4″ circle punch and the masking technique. I sponged on So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Perfect Plum to create my All Hallows Eve effect.

I wanted a nice sturdy house to protect me so I used the “Brick” embossing folder. To create the weathered look of the brick, I simply dragged my VersaMark™ pad across it. So simple but it really creates an awesome effect.

000_2670

 To complete my card I finished off the inside and wished you all a Happy Halloween! And Many More … is the stamp set my greeting comes from.

Thank you for stopping by my Halloween home and meeting my little black cat!
