Beautiful Butterflies

Do you remember the card I made a couple of weeks ago with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits? I kept all the ones that were cut off and created this gem!  And I have enough for one more!  The one item that made these butterflies a breeze to put together was the Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheet!  Just place a piece on the cardstock color you will use for your detailed die, then run it through the Big Shot! You now have a sticker-peel off the back and place on top of the bottom color! Crazy, I didn’t even use a stamp or ink on this card!

I LOVE the FREE Botanical Butterfly Paper!  The back side of each colorful piece of DSP has a black and white pattern!  I love this gingham with the Calypso Coral and Black! I was going to add a sentiment, but I felt it would have been too much!  Clean and Simple!

March Hostess Code is PBXJZGXM and I will also send you a FREE pack of Frosted Flower Embellishments just for ordering from me!  Click on Laura’s Stampin’ Up! website to order now!

Have a blessed week!

All Adorned is amazing!

final-6

The All Adorned stamp set (which is FREE with a $50 purchase!) is a must!  You can create some elegant, simple, and stunning cards with it!  We made this at our team get together the other night!

To make the medallions straight, I used the Stamparatus Stamp Placement tool!  Did you know there were accessories for the Stamparatus??  The pre-cut grid paper is a time saver and the extra plates come in handy for those multiple stamped projects!

 

There is even a tote to fit the whole kit and caboodle into!

I used Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green (one of my favorite colors!), and Black Memento inks to create this fun card!  I felt the Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave ribbon was a little wide.  So, I colored the 3/8″ Metallic Edge Silver Ribbon with the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend marker.

We used the Story Label Punch for the sentiment and added Basic Rhinestones to embellish the centers of the medallions!

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!

First Frost Delight

IMG_3654

I love everything Christmas!  The traditional colors are my favorite!  The Frosted Floral Suite showcases a stunning color combo in the Holiday Catalog!  My favorite product in this suite is the gorgeous pearlized  Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper! The designers put together the perfect balance of Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Mint Macaron,  Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Pineapple Punch, Powder Pink, Soft Seafoam, and Tranquil Tide.

I love the deep jewel tones of the Blackberry Bliss and Tranquil Tide.  I started with those two colors and then started building my palate.   I added a touch of Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride, and Gray Granite.  This is a Christmas Stamp a Stack card for next weekend.  I made a video to show the tips and tricks to this card.  But, it really is a simple card to make.

You know I had to add a touch of Wink to this card!  Rhinestones also add some bling along with the Braided Linen Trim!  I love how these non-traditional colors make the season feel cool and frosted!

Black Ice Technique

watermarked1(2018-09-07-1302)

Every month I hold stamp club where the girls get to make 3 projects, with one card that is a technique.  I was blessed to have completed all my techniques for the rest of this year!  This month I found this awesome and popular Black Ice technique!

It’s so simple to make too!  Just follow the instructions below:

  1. Stamp your image onto Silver Foil paper with StazOn Black.
  2. Take the StazOn and then drag up and down, and side to side. You just want some random streaks of black. The StazOn works best to prevent smearing.
  3. Let it dry for a minute or two.  Then take VersaMark and drag up and down & side to side.
  4. Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder on the whole thing and tap off excess.
  5. Heat set the whole piece.  It takes a little longer than the metallic embossing powders.  The image will appear very crisp and deep black.  Plus the Silver will really pop!

We used the hostess set Very Vintage for this card.  We randomly stamped the vintage doily with Smoky Slate for a background.  Then we ran the Basic Gray piece through the Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Finished it with a sentiment and some ribbon in the back.

I hope you enjoyed this technique as much as we did! I may make one with the Beautiful Blizzard set next!

Be sure to order you items to get your FREE Creative Class to Go!  Refer a friend and you both will receive a FREE gift from me!\

Here is a sneak peek of the cards that were designed for the kit!  You get the consumables to make 2 of each for a total of 6!  Just purchase the items for this month-follow the link above for more info!

Blessings,

Simple Hugs

Healing Hugs 1

Wow!!  The dist-ink-tive stamps in the Healing Hugs is just stunning!  Look at the detail!! Berry Burst is still one of my favorite 2017-2019 In Colors!  I paired it up with Granny Apple Green!  (I LOVE THIS Color!) It still gives a pop of green with out being too bright!  I still love Lemon Lime Twist, but this is a new option for pops of color!

I made this card for my upcoming Sweet & Simple class next week (6/27/18 @ 7pm for my local peeps).  I did use the cross-stitch patterned stamp as a color on color image on the card base.  It needed extra depth-but I didn’t want to use the Big Shot on both cards for this class.  I hold a class one evening every month and rotate the night.  I like to have this class available for people that are new to stamping or need a quick creative fix!

Healing Hugs 2

June 22nd is the last day to get your FREE Creative Card Class to Go!  This is great for people that cannot make classes but love to create!  It gives you 3 designs with the same stamp set/bundle!
