So Long Sweets

I love the pops of color that the How Sweet it is Suite includes!  This set will not carry over, so get it while supplies last on the Last Chance Products!

I love the contrast of the Gorgeous Grape, Costal Cabana, and Melon Mambo in the How Sweet it Is DSP!  I used this combo to jump off to create this cute card!  I used Silver Embossing Powder on Window Sheets to create the realistic jars.  Then I used the Jar of Sweet coordinating dies to cut out the jars to stamp the candy inside.  To create the illusion that the jars are on a shelf, I popped up the smaller one on dimensionals.  I HAD to use my new favorite Rectangle Stitched Dies for the Highland Heather piece!  These are the BOMB!  They just add an extra pop of texture to your card!

I tried using the Embossing Buddy to keep the little sprays of embossing powder, but it was too hard to get the haze off of the window sheet.  I think it looks like a vintage candy shop jar, so I like it!  There is a cute little die that cuts out the treats-perfect for the front jar!  To finish this card-it screamed for the absolutely adorable Costal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon!

Amazingly Beautiful

7271E5F2-8954-4F16-88B2-15982210E5E1My it’s been a busy couple of weeks!  I can’t believe we are half way through April too!  I have been preparing my roomie gifts, swaps, and club projects the past few weeks.  I made this card for a On Stage Swap and had to use it for club too!  I can let you in on a secret….the Beauty Abounds stamp set and dies are carrying over!

I have to say Highland Heather is one of my favorite colors right now!  I used the Lace 3-D embossing folder to make the Basic Grey add more texture to the card.  I added some of the bubbles using Highland Heather and I used Smoky Slate for the grainy stamp.  The butterflies were stamped with Gorgeous Grape and cut out with the Die Cutting Machine. Of course I had to add Wink of Stella to this card….it just called out for it!

I love the Silver Baker’s Twine-it helps add some dimension and whimsy to the sentiment that I used from A Big Thank You stamp set.

We had an amazing time at On Stage San Antonio! I always enjoy spending time with my team, seeing familiar faces/friends, meeting new friends, and seeing all the NEW products!!! The best part was watching my dear friend (and downline) attend her first On Stage!  Plus-she promoted to Silver the week before!  I am so proud of her and what she brings to inspire others!

Simply Enjoy Life

final-10

We just had our quarterly team meeting and we love to do a card SWAP!  This was one that I did using the Enjoy Life stamp set!  I love the sentiments and positive affirmations that are included in this set! It has so many possibilities using the stamps a silhouette with a sunset, an action technique with the bike, or just a simple card like this one!

To create this card I stamped Pool Party onto Pool Party cardstock using the new Crackle Paint background stamp! I love this background stamp!  Then, I ran a piece of Very Vanilla through the Big Shot with the Corrugated Embossing Folder to add more texture.  Once that was adhered down, I stamped my flower/grass stamp with Early Espresso in the bottom right corner. Next I added the butterflies, the sentiment, and the Braided Linen thread! All done!  Oh, wait…..I did Wink the Butterflies!

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!

final-9

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!

final-7

Filigree Fun

Who loves patterns and pops of color?  This bundle is for you!  Look at this gorgeous Florentine Thinlits Die!  I see so many possibilities with he negative pieces-so I kept them to the side!

To make this card, I ran a piece of Early Espresso through the Big Shot using the Florentine Thinlit die.  A great feature of the coordinating Florentine Filigree stamp set is the patterns are all on one stamp lined up for you!  Place your filigree that you cut out over a piece of Whisper White. Then place them on a block, ink it up, and stamp where the negative spaces are!

img_2840

To make the sentiment stand out I stamped it on a small Gray Granite banner piece.  Then I stamped the medallion stamp with Flirty Flamingo on to Whisper White and then again on Costal Cabana with Costal Cabana Ink. (well, I cleaned them in between of course). I used a 2″ and 1 3/4″ circle punch to cut them out.  Next, I layered them and used dimensionals to create more depth.

A few pearls to give it a little extra elegance and we are done!

IF YOU WANTED THE GINGHAM RIBBON that was a Saleabration Free item, you are IN Luck!  They got some more in the warehouse-but only while supplies last!
