Create your own Blizzard …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have an awesome bundle I want to share, the BEAUTIFUL BLIZZARD STAMP SET. The Beautiful Blizzard stamp set includes images, sentiments, and is perfect for creating that winter snow storm. The Blizzard Thinlets die is a great way to give your project snowflake embellishments.

I find this stamp set mesmerizing with it’s fairy tale font for your very own happily ever after cards. This is not just a Christmas card stamp set, think of the beautiful birthday cards you can make.  My daughters birthday is just two days before Christmas and this card would be perfect …

Watercoloring is the “HOT” look for cards right now and if you are not real comfortable with doing it yourself, this stamp set does the work for you with its watercolor splashes stamps. Then you have the swirls (I love swirls … so you?) They add such a fun whimsical look as in our Balmy Blue card on top.

Look closely at the gold and white gift back … Can you see the embossed pattern on the Pool Party? That is created with the die and our Big Shot Embossing Mats!!  Below I have the stamp set and die for you to see …

So now you know that you can create a beautiful textured cardstock with the Beautiful Blizzard  die and our Big Shot Embossing Mats, now lets see what we can do with all those amazing snowflakes when we cut them out …

How fun is it to make any color snowflakes you want!!  Now that would make a perfect birthday card with any of the fabulous greetings in this stamp set paired with a Birthday one in your collection.

Our gift box is so pretty and it is so easy to recreate … the pretty snowflakes from the stamp set are actually stamped on a pattern of designer paper found in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer paper (not just for baby cards either).

I love, love, love this bundle and will be hosting a class with it in the near future so make sure you are on my mailing list for an invite 🙂  Till then … here are some more ideas!

So … what do you think?  Are you ready for a “hand on” class so you can try some of these techniques yourself? I’ll be posting the date shortly so make sure you on are my mailing list.

Thank you for spending a part of your day with me …

I hope your have a “beautiful” day.

Here are the core supplies used in todays projects …

 

 

Twinkle Twinkle Christmas in July!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Fridays are always fantastic and so is the card I’m going to share with you today!  Yesterday I shared another card from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer paper and I said that this beautiful paper is so versatile you could even make a Christmas card with it, sooooooooooooooo

Yup … there it is! I took one of my favorite designer papers (Twinkle Twinkle) and teamed it up with one of the Hottest Christmas sets last year – the Star of Light stamp set. I still love this stamp set, it is stunning and the verses are just beautiful!! It’s so pretty!!

You will also notice that I used the same punch as yesterday … the Detailed Trio punch. So the same punch but with a totally new look. I think that it really added a nice dimension for the greeting.

My Holiday Retreats attendees know I love my bling, so I decided to started early this year and added the Silver Glimmer paper to my card which really gives me … Christmas in July ❤ If you think this card looks good here, you should see it in your hands … the sparkle, oh my! It’s gorgeous!!

Oh … and sparkle, I added some Rhinestones to really put this card over the top glitz!! Wooo Hooo!

Thank you for visiting me today and checking out my blog! Don’t forget the Designer paper is on sale right now. I have them all listed below for you to view  🙂

Thanks again and enjoy your day!!

DESIGNER PAPERS ….

 

Designer Paper Party!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Last night I hosted my “Designer Paper” class.  It was a fun night with wonderful ladies … lots of laughs but we still managed to make our cards!!  The focus was on paper techniques and folds because of the Buy One Get One FREE promotion from Stampin’ Up!

I love using designer paper … it can take you from Quick -n- Easy (still beautiful) to Upscale -n- Elegant!! Here is a card that we made last night, and if there is a name for this technique I don’t know what it is, what I do know is that I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time … and it’s EASY!!

This is another great way to use up your scraps!! Cut them into squares, use the new triple punch which has the corner rounder and viola … a quick and cute card!!  The pretty patterns in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer paper are perfect for any style card … I love babies, but let’s think outside of the box. I think it’s perfect for birthday”s, graduations and more – why I bet you could even make a Christmas card out of it!!

The greeting comes from the “Detailed With Love” stamp set, you’ve seen me use this before and you can find it on page 39 of the Annual Catalog. It has great sentiments and pretty elements in it!  Better yet, it’s part of the bundle with the punch!! When you purchase the Detailed Trio Punch and the Detailed with Love stamp set as a bundle … you can save 10%!!

Love this shot …it really shows the dimension on this card.  I’ve also added a little bling to the card … of course!  The new Silver Bakers Twine (Pool Party) and the Faceted Gems, which I think are fabulous and so happy they stayed in the catalog another year 🙂

I thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed the card!

Have a great day ~

Simply Sunday: Butterfly Kisses

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you’ve had time to enjoy this beautiful weekend! I’ve been busy stamping, planning classes and visiting with my great grandbabies! Life is good!!

Today’s card features the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Paper … in fact, because of the sale, the last few days have featured our designer papers!! This quick card just takes a few runs through the BigShot and you’re pretty much done.

The “dots” on my designer paper inspired me to continue the circles in my design, so I cut out a Whisper White and a Soft Sea Foam with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The double cut “hollow” circle is done in the new Gray Granite color, which is also the base of our card.

I did tuck a little Soft Sea Foam behind the designer paper to tie in our major circle which highlights the butterfly.  Our butterfly comes from the Springtime Impressions Framelits and is cut from the Petal Pink.

To make this beautiful butterfly “pop” even more … I added the Basic Pearls, another item I always keep handy in my stampin’ stash!! You can see that my color pallet came from the Twinkle Twinkle designer paper … takes all the stress out of coordinating your projects.

My greeting comes from the Twinkle Twinkle stamp set, I just omitted everything but the “love you” by covering the stamp with Washi Tape!! Once the stamp is inked … just peel off the washi tape 🙂

This designer paper may have the intention of “baby” but let your imagination go wild and use your designer papers for any application!!” You may find that it’s just the touch you need.

I appreciate you spending a part of your Sunday with me and checking out my blog.

Have an awesome Sunday ~

Welcome Sweet Baby

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a sweet baby card for you featuring the new Twinkle Twinkle bundle on pages 82 and 83 of the 2018-19 Annual Catalog.

This sweet stamp set caught my eye the first time I looked at it, it’s perfect for welcoming a new baby into the family and I think it will work for many other occasions as well (I’ll be sharing some of those with you!)

Now … I have always loved the “quilted” look that you can do with your Simply Score, however, now we have the new “Tufted” embossing folder and it makes this look super simple!!  Just check this out …

I used the beautiful star pattern in (one of my favorite new colors) Soft Seafoam … it is so pretty and delicate and perfect for a new baby ❤ I added the pearls in each of the exposed “tufts” to make this card a “keepsake” card. Will you be using a lot of your pearls … well, 39 to be exact but I don’t forsee anyone making too many of these! 😉

My greeting is from the coordinating stamp set and is cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  These are my “go to” dies … I use them all the time!!

Inside you will see …

I incorporated the coordinating “Twinkle Builder” punch that is included in the bundle to dress up the inside of my card and a strip of the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series paper.

You can also see from this angle that I “popped up” my entire front of the designer paper and the greeting… it adds so much dimension yet does not compete with the pretty pearls on the front.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and I would love it if you could leave a message in the comment section or just click the like button … I appreciate that. It helps my blog become more available in search engines … so others can fine me 🙂

Enjoy this beautiful day … I’ll be back tomorrow to show you another way you can use this great bundle.

Thank you ~
