I first used Smoke Slate as my card base and cut the Petal Passion DSP as a background paper piece.  I stamped the flower and colored it with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends pack (144603) and a Color Lifter (144608) They are going on back order soon if not already….they are very popular right now!

As you know, I am a Wink a Holic!  So, naturally I Winked the flower and added a clear Faceted Gem for the center. A quick cut out of the sentiment with the Stitched Framelits, and done!

Petal Soft & FREE card kit

XABU9988

I made a very similar card for a dear friend’s wedding.  I loved it so much that I re-made it for a club card for this month!  The Petal Palette stamp set and matching Petals & More Thinlits have been a favorite this past month!

I first stamped the leaf bunch with Pool Party on Pool Party card stock.  I did stamp off on one of the layers to give it a more subtle feel.  Next, I cut out the ornate accent with Silver Foil and layered half of a Doily underneath.  I tussled some Silver Bakers twine behind the flowers after using dimensionals to pop it up.  Look how ornate and elegant the Stampin’ Blends make the colors on the bouquet!  Of course I added Wink of Stella Clear to the flowers!

The Garden Trellis embossing folder was used for more texture behind the flowers.  It was finished off with a sentiment from the Petal Pallet set cut out with the thinlit included.

I just finished the last card for the FREE Creative Class to Go kit!  What is that?  You order the bundle on my website using this month’s hostess code.  Then, Stampin’ Up! send the stamp bundle to you directly.  If you are local-just pick up the cute case that contains your consumable products to make 6 cards!  (3 designs-2 of each).

Pretty Patterns

IMG_2784

I fell in love with the special edition Host set from last month! Merry Patterns is a stunning set that you can create several different scenes with one set.  And it has great 2-step stamping! The deer in the sweater is my favorite!  I decided to use silver embossing powder to create his image.  It’s paired with the Year of Cheer specialty DSP, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Basic Grey.  Just gives you a cold and wintery feel!GPUZ1380

Fun with Christmas Quilt

SKIU5706 (1)

I love sewing projects and would love to learn how to make quilts!  So, when I saw the Christmas Quilt suite, I had to have it!  It’s filled with cute felt embellishments, a gorgeous Designer Series Paper pack, stamp set, and coordinating dies!

This card has a few extra steps, but the result is so worth it!  I used a Crumb Cake base and stamped the stitched flower randomly with Crumb Cake ink.  I then cut out the small flower with the Real Red piece before I ran the Real Red piece through with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.  (I love to save paper when I can) What is nice about making this card is that you can make 3 of the quilt panels with what you cut out.  I took 3 different pieces of the DSP (cut to 3″x 3″) and ran all 3 through with the quilt block die.  To make this a little easier to piece together, I used a Whisper White piece for a backing.  I glued the outline part of the DSP to the Whisper White.  Then I stamped the star portion of the quilt block.  I then pieced the paper into the remaining places.

You will notice that after that part is finished, I ran it through the Quilted Embossing folder to add the stitched quilt top look. It’s finished off with 1/8″ Gold ribbon and a rhinestone.  I just love how it turned out!

Colorful Copper Leaves 

Colorful Seasons copper 1

I am so happy that it is finally starting to feel like fall here in Texas!  I wanted to create some cards to celebrate the season!  One of the bundles that I will treasure for a long time is the Colorful Seasons bundle!  It is a must have for a new stamper too! It covers all the seasons and has such beautiful dies to coordinate with the images!  Not to mention the paper, color combos, and accessories to boot!

Part of my monthly stamp club includes a technique.  The members get a sample of the technique and a small blurb that explains how to create it again.  When they first join, they receive a journal to put these in so they have it to look back on for a handy (and pretty) reference!

This card plays up the Emboss Resist technique.  I just switched the embossing powder to Copper!  I then used Sponge Daubers to rub Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler.  (in that order)  I started with the middle of the leaf towards the stem.  I only used the Cherry Cobbler on the tips of the leaves.  I then cut them out as well as one Copper Foil leaf.

Colorful Seasons copper

I just love how the Copper Foil, Copper Embossing Folder, and Copper Thread make this card pop!

All through this month you can stock up on your favorite  Designer Series Paper with the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE sale! (select papers on the list)

Rustic Rooster

BUMD4726

I have found so many different ways to utilize the Wood Words Bundle!  I needed a birthday card and came up with this rustic looking card!  I got the color idea straight from the picture for this suite right in the catalog!

This card is super easy to re-create too!  So, I made this a club card for my girls!

First, I stamped the floral bunch with Peekaboo Peach on to Peekaboo Peach paper.  I then took 1 1/4″ pieces of Early Espresso paper & the Wood Textures DSP pack.  If you tear slowly away from you the middle of the paper will not show.  I did use a sponge and Early Espresso to distress the edges.  Next I stamped the rooster with Cajun Craze and punched him out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch.  Then I punched the Small Scalloped Circle with Cajun Craze paper.  To give it that extra vintage feel, I crumpled up the paper and flattened it back out.  To give the doily extra fluff, I folded it in half before adhering it behind the strips of ripped paper. I also used the Early Espresso to distress the doily.

I then cut out the cute tag with the tag from the Wood Crate framelit set.  To finish the look, I tied a bow using the Linen Thread!
