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!

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!

Incredible Bluebonnets

final-4

This is one creative way to use the stamps in the Incredible Like You stamp set!  I saw a few on Pinterest and Stampin’ Up!’s site-so I had to recreate it!  I used Night of Navy and Blueberry Bushel to create the bluebonnets.  To create softer flowers, I stamped twice with the inked stamp before re-inking it.  The stems of the flowers are stamped in Call Me Clover and are stamped twice as well.

I love the cascading from one side to the other to leave room for the sweet sentiment!  To make the outside base look soft and not overpowering, I used the Subtle Embossing Folder. This is a must have embossing folder!  It’s so versatile and I use it a lot!

final-5

As you can see, I used Wink of Stella on some of the blossoms to make it sparkle!

LOOK at what came out on March 1st!!! This is on top of the 1st and 2nd release of products!!  Be sure to shop Laura’s Stampin’ Up! website! Use March’s hostess code PBXJZGXM check out!  I will send you a free pack of Frosted Flower Embellishments as a thank you!

After I ran it through the Big Shot, I used Wink of Stella to add some glimmer to the flowers. The Floral Romance DSP was used for a soft and elegant background for the main image.

Then I chose the Stitched Label out of Stitched Labels Framelits to cut out the sentiment.  A couple of Rhinestones completed the look!  We made this card at club for the Faux Canvas technique!

Bright Country Floral

final-2

Don’t you just love it when you are playing around with a new product and a stunning card emerges?  The 2nd release of Sale-a-bration products are availbale and this is one of the new FREE items!  The Country Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder can be yours FREE with a $50 purchase!

I was just wanting to see the amazing details that it created and then I took out my Daubers. I wanted to match the gorgeous Painted Seasons DSP (another free item/bundle with a $100 purchase) colors, so I chose Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, and Mango Melody.  Just a light swipe with the inked dauber is all you need!  I accented the flowers with Call Me Clover for the leaves.  I love how it turned out!

final-1

I also added Wink of Stella clear to the roses for a touch of bling!  I didn’t have any Poppy Parade ribbon, so I took some 1/8″ Whisper White Sheer Ribbon, a dauber, and the Poppy Parade ink to create a coordinating ribbon! Did you see the cool new punch?  You can order yours on March 1st!  They are unveiling new limited edition coordinating Sale-a-bration products to compliment your new FREE items!

final-3

It’s called the Story Label punch!  Psssst!  There is a new stamp set to coordinate with that called More Than Words!  (ok now that song is in my head!) I used one of the Layering Ovals to make a nice mat for the sentiment.

Here is the video tip on how to create your own coordination colored ribbon!

I hope you enjoyed today’s creation!  Craft on!

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!

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!

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:
