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!

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!

Flowering Desert

It has been a busy start to 2019!  After a whirlwind of events over the holidays and now I had a part time job fall into my lap!  My physical therapist for the past 4 years hired me for his new clinic. I have missed working with patients! BUT-I am still crafting my heart out!

I had my Occasions Open house last weekend and this card was featured!  I fell in love with the Flowering Desert set!  Succulents and cacti are everywhere now!  It’s a fun new image for making cards and other paper crafts!

I also used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits!  This is one set of dies you HAVE to have!  Paper saving, fun shapes, and that textured stitched look just adds great dimension to your creations!

Heartfelt Thanks

MUIW9720 (1)

I love a FREE stamp set, don’t you?  The Heartfelt Blooms is one of the many choices that are in this year’s Sale-a-bration catalog!  I just love the details in the image!  I tried it with black, but I really enjoyed how the Smoky Slate ink turned out!  This is for my Sweet & Simple class tonight!

Did you notice the cute dry embossed image?  It’s part of the Petal Passion suite on page 22-23 of the Occasions catalog!  It is a smaller embossing folder and it has 2 in the Petal Pair package!

HAUZ0017 (1)

I wanted to add ribbon, but really didn’t want to distract away from the main statement image.  I just used the Layering Ovals to cut out the Thank You that also is part of the Heartfelt Blooms set!

To take advantage of all the FREE items and Extra host/join perks, check out Laura’s Stampin’ Up website!

Painted Fall Flowers

JVHL4014

I LOVE this bundle!  I have heard that the Painted Harvest Bundle has been our top seller from the Holiday Catalog!  Do you need a copy mailed to you?  Let me know!

I made this one for our monthly club.  I stamped the smaller of the sunflowers with Pumpkin Pie and then followed it with Crushed Curry for the bigger flower.  The center is Chocolate Chip and Wink of Stella.  I also used Old Olive ink to stamp off the filler leaf stamp and used full strength ink for the leaf detail stamp. Next, I used a sponge with Early Espresso to distress the edges of the card stock and DSP.  To add depth and texture, I added dimensionals and linen thread.

The color combinations with this set are endless!  I have seen so beautiful cards and boxes made with this set!

World Card Making Day is coming!  To help celebrate, Stampin’ Up! has a 2 promotions!
