Another Purse!

When I made the banner I had to pay several packs of these papers. It is the Whole Lot of Lovely Dsp pack. I wanted to use up some of the other papers and needed a project for next weeks retreat. So I started making this purse. I was thinking I don't know if I'm going to like this. But I actually love the way it turned out.
Plus I have had these pearls forever and they never seem to fit anything I do but I love them for this purse!
Happy Stamping!

Create Banner!

This is a banner I made for Marketplace at the retreat I am going to in Union, Wa next week.
I can't believe its next week already! Yikes!!
I used the Large Letters dies, the Layering Oval dies, both of the butterfly sets and a couple of punches. Also I used the Oh So Lovely DSP.
It turned out to be a lot of work to make 10 kits for these so I hope they go will at the retreat!
Happy Stamping!

Happy 30th!

Here is a birthday card I made for Katis 30th birthday coming up on the 10th. She said I'm not 30 I'm only 29! I told her I would make it 29 from now on!
I used the Beautiful Bouquet bundle for this card. So many flower stamps and dis in this set. I just love it. I stamped the flowers in white and then added some Wisteria Wonder with my marker.
Each little flower has a rhinestone in the center.
I also used the Number of Years bundle for the Happy Birthday and 30th plus the number 30.

Feathery Friends!

I had to go to the bathroom at Kohls the other day and it is back by the Hallmark cards. On the way out I saw a cute card and it made me think of this little bird.
This little bird comes from a hostess set called Feathery Friends. There are two cute birds and two flowers. I can't remember what else. I stamped the little bird and flowers and then colored them with my SU Watercolor Pencils and my clear Wink of Stella!
So if you place a $150 order you can get this adorable set for free! You can place an order thru my online store or just leave me a comment!

Scrabble Anyone!?

I had to wait until I gave these to friends I made them for. They are obviously made with Scrabble pieces. I saw some done when I went to a cool antique store in Gearhart.
I used Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and the Very Vanilla Lace ribbon.
I think they would make fun name tags also!

I just love this card! I think I found it on Pinterest. I can't remember for sure. But you can see the original card here .
The only thing I did different on my version is the ribbon. Mostly because I forgot to put it on until I already had the front on.
This card was done using the Lovely Words thinlits and the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle. If you look at the Beautiful Bouquet bundle you will see how many awesome flowers it has. Its a great bundle! And it has a lot of different sentiments too!
This card is also using the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Oval shapes too!. The little flowers are cut out with the Bouquet Bunch framelits from the Beautiful Bouqet Bundle. I have used Crumb Cake and Tranquil Tide Card Stock!
If you are interested in purchasing any of the items I used to make this card you can send me an email, leave a comment or purchase it online here !

Cased from the Catty!

This is my version from page 22 of the Main Stampin Up Catalog! They did a gift bag but I just went for a card!
This card was done with the Grown With Love Bundle! I stamped the flowers and stems and also die cut the flowers out. I didnt want the sentiment that came with the stamp so I put a bow on top.
The whole stamp was stamped with Wild Wasabi (I think) and the I stamped the flowers in Berry Burst before I die cut them.
These little bows I put over the sentiment are so cute! The flower pot is stamped in Pool Party and then die cut.
The original image in the catalog I believe is stamped in Pool Party but it looks a lot darker than mine!
I used the brick embossing folder on vellum and added some of the new Berry Burst crinkled ribbon!

Happy Stamping!

You Move Me!

I just love these papers! They are from the Petal Garden DSP pack. This is a pack of 6 x 6 papers.
I used the You Move Me and Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp sets.
The coordinating card stock colors are Sweet SugarPlum and Rich Razzleberry.  The For You is in the Mini Treat Bag die set which I also used for the card.
At first I just used the Move Me thinlits for framing the center of the card. But the Sweet Sugarplum card stock just blended right in with the DSP so I framed it with the Layering Square Framelits and Rich Razzleberry to make it pop out more.
When you see the card in real life it looks like the Hummingbirds are fluttering!
You can get the Move Me thinlits and stamp set in a bundle and save 10%!

I die cut the Poinsettias out of the corners and then ran the whisper white card stock thru the Big Shot with the Holly Embossing Folder. I love this embossing folder!
The little deer and the tree are all from the Card Front Builder Thinlit set that goes with the Carols of Christmas stamp set.
The tree is cut out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper!

Lovely As Can Be!

For this card I used the Lovely Words Thinlits and Lovely Inside and Out Stamp set. You can get these two items as a bundle for 10% off.
I also used the new Ruffled Embossing Folder. It is one of the 3D Dynamic Textured Embossing folders.  So you get a really deep impression! If you want an even deeper impression you can spritz your papers with water first and then run it thru the embossing folder.
I have used Blushing Bride Card Stock, with Bundle of Love Specialty DSP which has a nice gold finish on some of the pages.
I have also cut the lovely image out with Gold Foil paper!

Life Happens!

Here is another card with the great Coffee Cafe Suite! For the foam on this cup of coffee, I used the Sweetened Condensed Milk technique.
You can either paint Sweetened Condensed Milk on your image after you stamp it. Or you can pour some on a couple of paper towels and use it as an ink pad and stamp with it.
After you get the SCM where you want it you heat it like you would when embossing and then add some embossing powder to seal it a little and heat it again!
I think it worked perfect on my coffee!!

Fab Flamingo!

This card is a little out of my normal range of cards. It was totally not what I was going for but thats okay. You have to step out of your box every once in awhile right??
I stamped the flamingo on watercolor paper with Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Berry Burst. Then I spritzed it with water.  I stamped the background with Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo using the Touches of Texture stamp set and spritzed it also.
I then added some rhinestones and enamel dots!

You Dazzle Me!

Here is another card using the Pocketful of Sunshine bundle. I found this card on pinterest and couldn't resist case ing it. Its hard to tell in the picture but the glasses are shiny. I put glossy accents over all of them to make them look more realistic. Also I added the glitter enamel dots! I just love those!

This Little Piggy!

At first I didnt like this set. It is Stampin Ups This Little Piggy. But now I think its adorable. I had stamped and cut out a bunch of these little pigs with my Brother Scan and Cut. But then I didnt even use one of the ones I cut out for this card.
I colored this little piggy with the Watercolor pencils and a clear Wink of Stella. So in real life he has a shimmer to him or her!
I die cut the hugs with the Lovely Words Thinlits and then even tho you can tell from this picture I covered it with Wink of Stella also to give it a shimmer.
I embossed the white layer with the Brick Wall embossing folder and used the Wood Textures DSP. I finished it off with some twine.
Happy Stamping!

Christmas in July!

We did this card at my Catalog premier event last month. I had just received the Burlap background stamp and it was sitting on my table so I decided to use it for the background. This is my version of the card in the new catalog on page 119. I just loved their paper and ribbon together.

Freshly Made Sketches #294

I made this card using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #294 . I love this cute little bundle in the new Stampin Up catalog. It is the Bike Ride bundle. If you purchase the bundle with the stamp set and matching dies you can save 10%! Thats a great deal!
This is a photopolymer set (which I love!) and it is so easy to use. I have used Flirty Flamingo and Basic Black for my bike. I added some Old Olive and Pool Party to go with this yummy Petal Garden DSP.
I love the little dog with this set. The only coloring I did was the leaves on the flowers. Everything else has a stamp for it. Even the little dog and his collar has a little stamp to add the color to the image!
The ribbon is one of the new shimmery ribbons in Pool Party!

Fabulous Flamingos!

I saw a You tube video making this card. It was made by Jill Olsen, who is a Stampin Up demonstrator. She has some great videos.
This card is made using the Fabulous Flamingos set. I have made several cards with this set I will be showing in the next few days.
The vellum is a little hard to see but the palm tree leaves are stamped in Emerald Envy and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The ribbon is the new crinkle ribbon also in Emerald Envy.  I just love this new ribbon! It comes in 4 colors, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach, Berry Burst and Night of Navy. I think it is so elegant looking!
I just love this flamingo. I am wondering if when I stamp the detailed stamp in black I may be able to cut it out with my Brothers Scan and Cut machine. I am not sure but I saw some great videos using it with Stampin Up stamps!
If you would like to order any of these products just leave a comment or send me an email!

Lemon Lime Twist Butterfly!

I saw this card on Dawns Stampin Thoughts. I fell in love with it. But she used the embossing paste and I don't have that yet so I used some of the new Incolor papers instead. This is my favorite color right now! I used the Move Me thinlits and also a greeting from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

Coffee Cafe!

I had a chance to play with the Coffee Cafe Bundle this week! There is a whole suite for it. Stamps, dies, papers. Also one of the dies works with the papers so you can cut little coffee cup images right out of the papers. Stampin Up has several sets like this in the new catalog. It is really cool!
On this card I actually was making my own background and got a little carried away with stamping. So my background actually looks almost exactly like one of the designs on the designer paper.

Pick A Pattern DSP!

I saw this cute card on Mary Fish's blog. She is a very successful Stampin Up demonstrator . I thought the card was so cute I had to case it. But I changed it just a little bit.
The images are cut out of the Pick A Pattern DSP. Mary just had the moose cut out but when I was cutting him out the little bunny said "Oh, I want to go too! Can I please??" So I couldn't resist and cut it out too!
The sentiment is from the Specials Celebrations stamp set. There are lots of great sentiments in this set for the front and insides of your cards.
Both the papers and the stamp set are from the new Stampin Up catalog.
So contact me today to get your copy or place an order!

Then I used the butterfly die from the Move Me thinlits, with the Stitched Shapes and Circle dies. I also used the yummy new Petal Garden DSP. The ribbon is the new Shimmery Pool Party ribbon.  The flower is made with circle punches with a scallop circle punch on the outside of it.
