Stampin’ UP! Splendid Thoughts Bundle

July 8, 2022

I found these cards in some envelopes on my desk under a stack of stuff…does that ever happen to you??? And, I will leave no card unshown, for the most part…especially when I just had 5 classes in 2 days and one the week before with a ton of things to do…and am fresh out of posts right now….hahaha!

We made these cards on a virtual Demonstrator event in June. I got to meet up with some of my sweet demonstrator friends who let me honorarily be a part of their FLA team:)) We were given the cutting measurements and then made the cards along with the virtual teacher (a real person, I should add, in case you are thinking of Rosie from the Jetsons!)

I changed up a little on the size of the components of the card above. I liked showcasing the beautiful Splendid Day Designer Series Paper as turned upside down flower pots. I always love a stamped card base! I think the sentiment would have looked nice if it were embossed in white instead of stamped in black.

Of course, if you follow me…you know I do try to avoid abstract coloring so this one was a hard one for me but it turned out ok…ehhh..well just ok. I scribbled Stampin’ Blends over the panel on the card and added the other components. I think it should have had a Pool Party card base since they had us use that color of blends on the panel….and then the leaf dies could have still been Soft Sea Foam to tie in with the color of the ribbon. I just feel the scribbled Pool Party Blends looks out of place. Just my opinion, of course, it is easier to change up a design we see than make one sometimes!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Stampin’ UP! Season of Chic with Brightest Glow Bundle

August 4, 2022

I have a pretty card for you today that I knew you would love that made by my friend, Sarah Rigby.

Sarah used the Stampin’ UP! Texture Chic Designer Series Paper with Distressed Gold Specialty Paper bordering the rectangles. She added in the grid die cut and snowflakes…just so pretty!!!

The gold embossed sentiment and die came from the Brightest Glow Bundle. The pretty Petal Pink 3/8″ Soft Polyester Ribbon was a perfect touch! The inside was neat, too!

The Stampin’ UP! Season of Chic has year old use with the leaves, flowers, and snowflakes.

The gold accented Texture of Chic Designer Series Paper has beautiful muted soft colors with splashes of darker bold colors.

The Brightest Glow Bundle is amazing, too! The sentiments are gorgeous! I love the die cuts that can be used with so many stamp sets along with the cool dies that die cut into cardstock that can also be used with so many sets!

Stampin’ UP! Shaded Summer with Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder Techniques Video Tutorial

August 3, 2022

I just did a fun technique I came across called the Carved Wood Technique. It is super cool look!

All you need is a Scoring Tool, an embossing folder and some ink.

Take a look at my video showing how to do the Carved Wood Technique and the Wax Paper Emboss Resist Techniques:

The Wax Paper Emboss Resist Technique is a fun one, too. You run a piece of wax paper through an embossing folder and then place it between two pieces of cardstock. Then you iron it with no steam. The wax transfers onto the card stock and then resists the ink when it is sponged on!

The butterflies from the Stampin’ UP! Brilliant Wings Dies are a perfect accent to the clean and simple backgrounds. And the butterflies come in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge 172 diagonal from top left to bottom right Floral.

Measurements: Both card bases are 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, Carved Wood panel is 4″ x 5-1/4″ scored every 1/2″ on the 4″ side, Wax Paper Emboss Resist White border: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and embossed panel is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″

Stampin’ UP! Christmas Scottie Bundle

August 1, 2022

Stamp Plaid, Punch, Punch…stamp sentiments, and you have two cards lickedty split!

I was playing with the plaid image and then thought the dog would fit so I punched it out. And then I punched the dog and bow out of black cardstock with the Scottie Dog Punch.

Two easy peasy Christmas cards with minimal work. The white panel on the card is 2-3/4″ x 4″ and the red bordering panel is 3″ x 4-1/4″.

I love both of the dogs! It is hard to choose which one I like better…what about you?
