Welcome Easter Cuteness

With all of the craziness going on, I wanted to spread some cuteness to everyone! I have to admit, more time for crafting is a bonus! When my son and I saw this set, it was a must have! The animals are just too cute and so simple to create quick and fun cards! I am sharing the two that I came up so far with this set! (I still need to make one with the chick!)

The card base is Rococo Rose (LOVE THIS COLOR) I used the Smoky Slate Dark and Light with the color lifter for the fur. Then, I followed up with the Light Blushing Bride for the ears, nose, and paws. The die from the Painted Labels die looked like Easter Grass! Both cards are using the 6×6 In Color 2019-2021 DSP pack for the Gingham.

Here is the second card where I used the sheep stamp and the baby sentiment! I used the Seaside Spray for the card base.

I used Stampin’ Blends to color in the bunny and the sheep. To create the shadow and depth with the sheep, I used the Light Smoky Slate around the lines and then used the Color Lifter to blend into the center of the wool. I used the Ivory marker to color his face. I just love this card!

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!

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.

Perfectly Plaid

The Perfectly Plaid Bundle has been so useful this season! I have lost count of how many cards, tags, and gift décor I have made with it! This card was for the second Stamp a Stack of Christmas cards I had this month! (It’s my busy season-sorry I haven’t posted as much!)

I started off with a Crumb Cake card base and then a Shaded Spruce background. To create texture, I used the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder. Next, I used the Pine Tree punch to cut out 3 trees with the coordinating Wrapped In Plaid 6×6 paper. To create dimension, I used Dimensionals to make the trees pop up on the front of the card. TIP: To center your trees, I adhere the first one in the middle. Then I added a strip of Crumb Cake that I used for the sentiment.

The Pine Cones are accented with Wink of Stella to add some sparkle and I topped each tree with a Gold Metallic pearl. To finish the card, I added a small Linen Thread bow to the center tree. Such a versatile set!

Guess what is coming next week!!! Stampin’ Up! Online Extravaganza on November 20–22, 2019. Stay tuned for more details!

Soft Flowers

I love watercolor and hydrangea flowers! The Beautiful Friendship stamp set is just gorgeous!! I love the color combination with this card-but I liked the “stamped off” images better than when I tried it with full strength ink.

I made this for my Sweet & Simple card class last month. Sometimes I have a hard time not adding more and more to a card! Occupational hazard! 🙂 I used the new Scripty 3-D Folder to make the Sahara Sand banner have some texture. I also used a Stampin’ Sponge (cut in 1/4 pieces) and some Sahara Sand ink to rub over the whole banner. It really made the script detail stand out!

My inspiration were from 2 cards that were in Stampin’ Up! publications. One was in the wonderful magazine we get quarterly, Stampin’ Success. (a perk of being a demonstrator) The other was in the catalog itself. I played with the colors until this combination made me smile! Seaside Spray, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Merry Merlot, and So Saffron was the winning combination!

The new Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets are an extra “wow” factor for this card! I also used the new Story Label Punch for a quick and easy sentiment! I finished the card with the Braided Trim bow!

Did you know that through the month of July you can earn a $5 coupon with EVERY $50 you spend?? You get to use the $5 coupons in August!

Plus-if you are an addict, like me, you can join for the discount! Stampin’ Up! has a promotion that they will add an additional $30 to the $125 in the starter kit!

A Walk Down Daisy Lane!

TIP: stamp your daisies on the Very Vanilla on top of the base to align the images.

I was so excited when I saw the Daisy Lane stamp set in the catalog! What a great addition to the Daisy Delight and Daisy Punch from last year’s catalog! AND there is a new Medium Daisy punch that is a little smaller to help you make even more detailed flowers!

I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class that I hold once a month. It is a popular class for people who are new stampers or for those that need a creative fix! I used the new Birch background stamp and stamped Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla. Next, I placed the Very Vanilla piece on top of the Rococo Rose card base (my favorite new IN-Color!) and stamped the stems with Pretty Peacock. This made the placement of the daisies much easier. I then stamped the daisies off-set onto the card base and the Very Vanilla.

As you can see, I learned the hard way. But it’s still a pretty card! To finish the card, I then stamped 2 more daisies on a scrap piece of paper and then punched them out. I jused a dimensionnal to place them on top of the one on the Very Vanilla. I then added some Wink of Stella Clear to the centers. The sentiment was stamped with Pretty Peacock and cut out with the new Timeless Label punch! I added some Pretty Peacock to a sponge and distressed the edges before adhering it with dimensionals.

I had my NEW Catlaog Launch & Customer Apprecition event last weekend! It was a hit! AND I reached my first career sales milestone!!! 100k! Here are a few items I made with the new IN Colors ! A set of cards using the A Little Lace stamp set and the In Color 6×6 card pack.

Bookmarks that show case the new In Colors! Everyone recieved one of these in their goodie bags!

Stampin’ Up! has already placed the Daisy Lane stamp set as a top seller!!! I can see why! The Medium Daisy punch is on it’s way here-I can’t wait to create more with it!

Simply Soft Butterflies

I was cruising around Pinterest and saw a card by Tami White and this creation happened!  The Floral Romance Specialty DSP has these gorgeous vellum patterned papers in the collection! You get 12 sheets total: 6 vellum sheets (3 each of 2 designs) and 6 double sided sheets (3 each of 2 designs).  You can makes so many simple and beautiful cards with this pack of paper!  Or scrapbook your floral memories using it for your scrapbooking!

img_3947

I used Glue Dots behind the flowers on the vellum so you couldn’t see them. Then I used Mossy Meadow to mat the DSP.   Next, I stamped the butterflies with the Butterfly Gala stamp set and punched them out with the Butterfly Duet punch!  (they both will be in the NEW catalog!).  To color the butterflies, I used daubers in ink pads.  First I used Blushing Bride in the centers of their bodies and then Rich Razzleberry for their outer wings.  Of course what card isn’t complete without Wink of Stella!!  It also helped blend the colors together!  I finished it off with a sentiment on a piece of Whisper White popped up on dimensionals.

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!

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!

Simple Garden

Do you need to make several birthday cards at one time?  Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is perfect for bright colors, beautiful designs, color combinations, and great graphics!  I chose the Garden Impressions DSP 6×6 pack for this card!  The colors in this DSP pack are just fun and playful!  The concept designers are always on point with their color selections and use of spacing!

I cut the paper to 3″x4″ and used Shaded Spruce 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ as a mat color. I stamped the sentiment with Shaded Spruce on Whisper White and ran it through the Big Shot.  I used the Stitched Shapes to give it extra texture.  I used the Petal Pink Glimmer ribbon to wrap around the DSP/mat piece. Then I used Dimensionals to pop it up.
