Sheltering Umbrella

The Umbrella Builder Punch helps make cards pop in a snap!

My bestie and I just went on a craft retreat last weekend! It was so nice to have some creative time after such a busy holiday! We live in the crazy weather state-Texas! While at the retreat-we had severe weather (including tornadoes) and snow the next morning! Just crazy! But it inspired me to use this lovely Under My Umbrella Bundle!

I saw a card on Pinterest that inspire me to use the No Line Watercolor technique for the main image!i love the softness it created! To create this: use ink pads or markers to stamp the lined portion of your stamp on to paper. The. You will use a Blender pen and re-inker to color the insiders the image in the matching color. The results are stunning!

Next step is to stamp the umbrella on to the card stock color of your choice and punch it out. I added some extra bling with the new Champagne Basic Jewels! That needs to be a staple in our main catalog! Love these! Next, I added some rain drops in Pool Party on Pool Party cardstock. I cut out the stamped image and sentiment using the Stitched Nested labels. Of course I had to add Wink of Stella on the flowers!

Simple Poppies

I needed a couple of quick cards the other day and I had just opened the new Peaceful Poppies DSP pack! The colorful patterns made it so easy to add a sentiment and some dimension-then done!

I made one for a dear friend of mine that I wanted to cheer up. The other if was for my sister in law’s birthday. It’s January 4th, and it sneaks up on me every year! Birthdays around the holidays are hard. I try so hard to separate their birthday from the holiday.

To create some dimension, I ran a piece of Basic Black through the die cutting machine and then added some Silver Thread tousled behind it. I then punched out a small sentiment and adhered it with dimensionals. The finishing touch was a little Wink of Stella on the main flowers.

I stamped the poppy flower with Poppy Parade color on color for the card base. I cut the from the same sheet of DSP, but a little smaller. I framed it with a Basic Black mat that was run through with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. I finished it off with a sentiment and some Wink of Stella.

Music in my Heart

I swear it was just October! The holidays were crazy busy and my craft room was a disaster area! But, I am re-organized and re-energized! I am making some improvements to my blog and my events this year!

I finally was able to play with my pre-order goodies from the Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog! The Music from the Heart stamp set was top on my wish list! I grew up playing the piano (not well, but I could do it) and I love all types of music! I have fond memories with songs and pieces from over the years! With Valentine’s Day fast approaching (yes, I know-crazy!), I wanted to create a card with a musical vibe!

First, I stamped the music notes and hearts onto a piece of Whisper White. I then cut a 5″x 3 3/4″ piece of the From My Heart DSP from the middle of the longer side to the midline of the piece of DSP. I created the folds by creasing them with my bone folder. I placed a Glue Dot under the flaps so they would stay down. Then I adhered that piece onto the stamped Whisper White piece to look like music was coming out of the opening. I used Basic Black as a mat on top of a Real Red card base.

Next, I stamped the piano on a scrap piece of Whisper White and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes dies. I colored it with the Basic Black and Real Red dark blends. I adhered it with dimensionals and adorned it with Basic Rhinestones. Inside was stamped with the treble clef and a love sentiment. That way it can be used for more than a Valentine’s Day card!

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!

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!

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!

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!
