Total Eclipse of the Heart

img_2953

I had to make a punny title!  I made this card our club last month! I love that you can use it for Valentine’s Day or any “love” occasion!  I used the cute heart in the Be Mine Stitched framelits as the O in LOVE.

img_2954

To make the letters POP, I used the  Foam Adhesive Strips because they are easy to use and are slightly higher than dimensionals. I just tied a knot and cut the banner end on the ribbon for a cute accent!

I invested in the Large Letter Framelits when I had flex points from Stampin’ Up!  They were almost FREE!

FREE??  As a demonstrator, you get flex points for each dollar you spend or earn through sales.  One main reason I love they way Stampin’ Up! rewards all types of demonstrators!

Forever Lovely

IMG_3051

Ah, the feel of love in the air!  I made this card for the monthly Sweet & Simple class.  I wanted to keep the Big Shot items to one die and not go over the top (hard to do sometimes with all these great products!). I wanted a simple heart popped up, so I chose the two hearts in the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.  To make the heart stitched, you nestle the to smaller heart dies together and run through one time.

I really love the photopolymer sets when it comes to 2-step stamping!  I always start with the darker color ink first.  It makes it easier to line up the 2nd stamp with the lighter ink.  I used Lovely Lipstick and Soft Seafoam for the colors.  There are a couple pops of Blushing Bride to add some whimsy.

IMG_3052

Grey Granite along with the All My Love DSP was used for a classic and elegant look to the card.  To finish it off, I used a tousle of Silver Baker’s Twine and the Modern Label Punch.  You could easily change the sentiment to a Happy Anniversary or a Wedding sentiment as well! I also have fell in love with the Take Your Pick tool!  It has so many great features at your finger tips!  A putty side to pick up your sequins and small paper pieces; a small spatula, a piercing tool, and two sided stylus!  Plus, you get a putty refill all for $10!

Be sure to be your own craft store!  You get a 20% discount (no coupons needed) on every purchase you make or 20% of what your friends buy!  This is such a great time of year to sign up!  Hobby demos welcome!  We have a great team across the U.S.!

Simple butterflies

Oh my,  the Butterfly Gala bundle is my favorite out of the Occasions Catalog! The punch pops out both butterfly images at the same time! And the photopolymer stamps make the placement a snap! The stamps have two butterflies that line up perfect with the punch! You can make tons of them!

I used Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove among with sponge daubers to color the butterflies! Just gorgeous!

To make the Ombre look, I stamped the small solid butterfly full strength and then two more times before re-inking the stamp.  I love the Gingham Gala DSP pack and how easy it makes such gorgeous cards!  This card was made for my Sweet & Simple class.  Now I need to make a Valentine’s Day card for the 2nd card!

Flowering Desert

img_2951

It has been a busy start to 2019!  After a whirlwind of events over the holidays and now I had a part time job fall into my lap!  My physical therapist for the past 4 years hired me for his new clinic. I have missed working with patients! BUT-I am still crafting my heart out!

I had my Occasions Open house last weekend and this card was featured!  I fell in love with the Flowering Desert set!  Succulents and cacti are everywhere now!  It’s a fun new image for making cards and other paper crafts!

I also used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits!  This is one set of dies you HAVE to have!  Paper saving, fun shapes, and that textured stitched look just adds great dimension to your creations!

(and there is a FREE ribbon pack that matches!)

Merry Buffalo Check

KJZC0966

Are you as obsessed with the Buffalo Check craze as I am?  When I saw the Buffalo Check Background stamp, I bought it with my first order! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and I love how it turned out!

I highly recommend to buy the wood mount with background sets.  I like that they stamp a much more even and crisp image.

TIP: ink your stamp with your color of choice and lay your stamp rubber side up.  Place your paper on top of the rubber.  Then, pull your grid paper (or a piece of scratch paper) and rub all over to get an even image.  And no ink on you!

KRKR4311To make the sentiment pop, I used the marker to rubber method.  I always huff on it before stamping the image too! To finish it off, I used the 1/8″ Real Red ribbon and Burlap ribbon to make it look farmhouse!

Do you know that the ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA is going on right now?  There are 3 different sales now through next week!  Be sure to get your favorites at 10% off! Here is the schedule of sales:
