Simply Sunday: Laser Perfect

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a card I made with the Laser cut paper from the Dandy Garden Suite. So pretty and so easy to make!

Let’s take a look at today’s card …

I began with the Laser cut piece and layered it over the stunning Fine Art Floral Designer Series paper from the Mini Catalog. I chose the pattern that looks like brush strokes of a painting … I thought it created a beautiful background to my laser cut paper. This front piece was layered with dimensionals onto a piece of Mango Melody which I cut a small piece off and split it apart to create some added dimension and creates a simple but fun twist to the card!

The greeting comes from the “Heal Your Heart” stamp set (already retired) I used the Everyday Label Punch to highlight the greeting, I then put on a few Rhinestones and popped it up with dimensionals. I love the layering on this simple card … it really helps bring it to life!

I like to share our retiring products so you can get one last look before it retires. If you want to see more, and have some fun … Join me at my Catalog Retirement Party this coming weekend. Here is the link CLICK HERE to request membership into our Private Party Group!!

Have a wonderful day and Thank You for joining me today.

Curvy Card Parade …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share some pretty cards using the Quite Curvy Bundle which unfortunately is on the “Retirement List” … so sad. This is one of my favorites, I like the bright colors and the way the layers make the “sentiment / greeting” pop!

I have a video for you to watch and see my little tips and tricks to make layering this so easy!

Cool … right! Not sure why this one is retiring, it’s different than the others …. hmmm. Let’s take a look at another card …

Let me show you the bundle before I share even more cards …

Just looking at this bundle may not do to much for you … and don’t we all shop by “how things catch our eye”? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard … I never even looked twice at this … UNTIL YOU MADE THAT CARD!! Oh my gosh, I say that to my Stampin’ Sisters all the time … lol.

Here is just a sweet -n- simple card …

I think it’s time to take it up a notch!! I love this stunning card done with the Fine Art Floral Designer paper (Retiring: June 30th) and Pretty Peacock cardstock (Sold Out). Did you notice that both “curved” dies are used to create a beautiful flow of the card …

I have two more pretty cards for you that I think you will like ….

The card on the top right showcases one of the dies but done two different ways … and then it highlights the stunning Hydrangea Hill Designer Paper (Retiring: June 30th). The second card is created by stamping the leaves images and then die cut … there is just so many different things you can do with this bundle.

I hope you enjoyed this pretty card parade … If you have any questions on this bundle, let me know.

Have yourself a beautiful Friday ~

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared a card I created with the beautiful Fine Art Floral Designer paper with the window sheet with gold overlay that actually is designed to lay over the pattern … it’s stunning. Well, let me say, that is how I cut it … with window sheet on top of the designer paper! Today I’m going to share what I did with one of the other pieces left over from that cut …

Now you can really see the beauty of the gold overlay and how it adds a touch of elegance to the cards… now it stands alone and it really creates a stunning effect.

A few drops (tiny drops) of glue to attach the overlay and Vanilla cardstock together and then I matted my design with the Gold Foil paper. I added the Vanilla Gold Edged ribbon to compliment the gold on the designer paper and add just a touch more glitz.

I used our Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the front and give it more dimension. I stamped my sentiment from the Art Gallery Bundle with VersaMark and then heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. I then die cut it from the coordinating die, and to finish it, I added the gold dot to the greeting.

You you be joining me … I’ve got two events planned!! Tonight is my Facebook Live! I’ll be heat embossing in combination with a fun technique on a Valentine style card. Then I’d like to invite you to my Mini Catalog & Sale-a-bration Launch Party.

Fine Art Floral Designs

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card from the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper … this time I chose the “specialty” paper which has “gold on one side and silver on the other” and the pattern aligns with one of the designer papers … so pretty! Let me show you …

I did not choose to do the same layout as yesterday mainly because I wanted to highlight more of the pattern and how the acetate overlay looks on it. If the hand painted designs weren’t pretty enough, the gold overlay add a touch of elegance to the card.

A few drops (tiny drops) of glue to attach the two together and then I matted my design with the Gold Foil paper. I added the white ribbon to bring out the white from the designer paper and tie it all in with our white background!

Then I used our Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the front and give it more dimension. I stamped my sentiment from the Art Gallery Bundle with VersaMark and then heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. (Sorry the lighting takes away some of the beauty … to much glare with the lights).

You will be able to see this and many, many more cards along with LIVE Demonstrations this weekend during my Mini Catalog (Sale-a-bration) Launch Party! CLICK HERE & REQUEST MEMBERSHIP You have to be on Facebook as this is where the “Group” is.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed today’s card … it’s perfect for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, a promotion, or a friend who is gold.

Have an amazing week ~

Simply Sunday: True Friend Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I’m having fun making lots of card samples for my upcoming Mini Catalog Launch party. I hope you can join me … but till then, I have a pretty card to share with you today. I found the layout on Pinterest and it reminded me of a picture, framed and hanging on the wall.

What better designer paper than the FINE ART FLORAL Designer Paper with it’s “actual” painting design ….

The brush strokes come alive in this pattern. I matted the designer paper with Night of Navy to pull out the color from the paper. The larger piece is Mossy Meadow and acts as a frame which creates the picture affect. I chose Basic White as my card base which pulls out the white in the paper and really makes the designer paper POP!!

This picture really allows you to see the brush strokes in the designer paper… it gives you the appearance of texture. I added some texture to the card by adding the Elegant Faceted Gems, it also brought out the white in the designer paper.

The greeting was stamped in Night of Navy to give a nice flow of color, the sentiment is from the Garden Wishes Stamp Set and it completes my card.

If you like this card … wait till you see what I have in store for you tomorrow! Same layout … well, I don’t want to give it away, you’ll have to come back.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thank you for taking time out to stop by today.

Just Wanted to Say …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday you got a peak at the NEW Dandy Garden Suite, so today I thought I would share another NEW Suite … the Fine Art Floral Suite! This exquisite suite of products include a stamp set that is beauty in bloom, and is complimented with stunning hand painted designer papers … and it’s topped off with a touch of gold.

I began with a beautiful pattern from the Fine Art Floral Designer Series paper ….

The stunning paper was placed onto Mossy Meadow cardstock to highlight the greens in the paper and make the pinks and red pop!! My card base is white and my sentiment is cut out with white as well. I am using the Foam Adhesive sheets … yes, I am a bit addicted to them now.

This camera angle not only shows you the layers of this card but also gives you a nice close up of the pretty paper. These patterns were hand-painted and then photographed to create these stunning papers … you can see every brush stroke!

The secondary part of my sentiment comes from the Art Gallery Bundle which is included in the Fine Art Floral Suite. I stamped the greeting and then cut it out using one of the coordinating dies. The “Just want to say” is also included in the die set, bundle and suite! I then used the Wink of Stella to make the greeting POP even more!!

The layers and dimension on this card really accent the designer paper. I hope you enjoyed this peak into another product suite, and thank you for checking in with me today.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another card as the Jan-June MINI and Sale-a-bration Catalogs go LIVE!! On that note, I just want to say ….

This front piece was layered with dimensionals onto a piece of Mango Melody which I cut a small piece off and split it apart to create some added dimension and creates a simple but fun twist to the card!

The greeting comes from the “Heal Your Heart” stamp set that comes from our Sale-a-bration catalog … which you can earn for FREE during the Sale-a-bration period. I used the Everyday Label Punch to highlight the greeting, I then put on a few Rhinestones and popped it up with dimensionals. I love the layering on this simple card … it really helps bring it to life!
