Sweet Berry Blessings

What is it about berries that makes me so happy? I feel like it reminds me of the freshness of spring and summer! Nothing beats fresh fruit on a hot day along with your favorite iced tea! When I saw the Sweet Strawberry bundle, I knew I had to have it!

Just think of all the cute treat boxes, scrapbook pages, cards, and much more that you can make using this bundle! While cruising Pinterest, I saw people using the punched berries for toppers for wrapped chocolates! Another post had the strawberry punched upside down with a light green color to resemble a pear! Seriously, the possibilities are endless!

I made this adorable card for our club card this month! I started off with a 8 1/2″x 5 1/2″ piece of Garden Green card stock folded in half and creased. (TIP: I love to refer to the back of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack for the colors used in the paper) I cut the following to make a series of mats to make the picnic tablecloth pattern pop! (Basic White 4″x 5 1/4″; Granny Apple Green 3 3/4″x 5″, Crosshatch DSP pattern 3 1/2″x 4 3/4″)

It is always economical to paper save when the opportunity arises. I cut out the Basic White stitched circle using the Stamp, Cut, and Emboss machine (SCEM) before adhering the other layers on top of it. To punch out the berries and flowers, use a scrap piece of Basic White. Stamping the images are easy with this photopolymer set and the two step stamping. I found stamping the berry first and then the outline much easier. The sentiment was stamped with Basic Gray ink on to a Smoky Slate scrap, then punched out.

To make your focal point, place Dimensionals under each berry. Next, use glue dots to attach the topper so the berries. Using Garden Green ink, stamp the flower & stem stamp leaving enough room to place the berries. I used a Blender Pen to pull the color from the veins of the leaves to create the lighter hue. The flowers were stamped with Smoky Slate and punched out. They were adhered onto the circle with Glue Dots and adorned with Basic Rhinestones. (a little Daffodil Delight marker to accent the jewels)

Lovely Bees

Who doesn’t love bees? (well not right in my face) But they are soooo beneficial for the environment, pollination, honey, and defying physics! I love the colors of black, white, yellow, and gold together!!

We had our Team Gathering last month. I have always wanted to do a Card Gut challenge! We all got the same sized pieces of cardstock and DSP in an envelope. We all were allowed to add extra colored paper, embellishments, and stamps. We just couldn’t alter the paper included in the card guts! I posted three of our team’s cards on this post!

During Sale-a-bration, one of the FREE items choices is the Golden Honey Specialty DSP! I LOVE THIS PAPER! Playful and yet elegant patterns of black, white, and gold to make your projects gorgeous! And since it specialty paper, it’s thicker and metallic!

I started with the card guts: Thick Whisper White cardstock, Golden Honey DSP, Basic Black. I ran the Basic Black through the die cutting machine with the Hammered Metal 3-D folder. I wanted a pop of yellow, so I added a mat piece of Daffodil Delight. I ran a piece of Gold Foil through the die cutting machine with the hive die for a fun accent.

To create the bees I stamped with Versa Mark and then heat embossed with the Shimmer Black embossing powder! Have you tried it yet? It made the bees so fun and whimsical! I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment!

Now to show you the team’s creations!

Connie’s Creation using blends, gold foil, and gold edged trim ribbon
Kathy used a sponge technique to color the card base. The bees and bike were colored too!
Kelli used gold foil and the bee dies.

I hope you enjoyed the card cards we all made from the same pieces! Be sure to check out all the great new products in the Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration freebies! Laura’s Stampin Up! website.

Oooh La La

I remember thumbing through the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog and thinking this set was cute. It wasn’t until I saw tons of super adorable cards made on Pinterest and the internet that I HAD to have it! This card was designed in minutes! Simple and perfect for your fashion divas in your life! I can see so many more wonderful ideas coming for this card!

Petal Pink is usually not one of my first colors that I turn to, but it really works with this card! I started by stamping the floral bunches and sprigs on Petal Pink card stock with Black Memento ink randomly. Then I stamped the perfume bottle and cut it out with the coordinating die. There is a fun watercolor swoosh that I stamped with Petal Pink in the center of the bottle. Of course I had to use Wink of Stella to make the perfume bottle sparkle!

Next I stamped the sentiment in Black Memento and cut it out with the scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I adhered the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon behind the cardstock with the sentiment. I used dimensionals to make the images pop! To finish off the card, I placed a Champagne Basic Rhinestone!

Floral Music

I seriously cannot get enough of this set! I LOVE it! I grew up playing the piano on a very beginner level. I sold my piano when I was in my early 20’s because I didn’t want to move it. I sadly have lost my touch when reading music, but I love hearing music played on the piano! What is your favorite type of musical instrument?

I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class this month! You can always add a valentine sentiment (or which ever one you need). We just stamped the music staff and treble clef with Black Memento and added notes. Then, we colored the inside of the heart with the Poppy Parade dark Blends. We added Dimensionals to pop up the Whisper White piece.

The Peaceful Poppies DSP makes such a beautiful back drop for any card! You almost don’t need stamps! (eek!) TIP: To make bows effortlessly, place a glue dot under where you start your knot. This will hold it while you loop your bow!
