For My Friend

I love cards with different folds!  Today’s card sort of qualifies in that catagory.  It is a scalloped circle card.  You can make these with any die cut shape.  This one is a cute little gift card.

This little gift card, or it could be a little Random Act of Kindness card, is made using the Layering Circles Framelits.  You fold your card stock, lay the die off the fold end (so that it isn’t cutting there), and VOILA!  You have a circle card. How easy is that??  I then simple used the next two smaller scalloped circles to finish the card.

I hope you will give this technique a try!  Let me know if you do please.  I used Stampin’ Write Markers in Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry, and Soft Suede to color the pineapple and give it some depth.

You Inspire Me

Today I have a card that ended up pretty darn cute.  But Oh My!  It was ugly in between !  I was trying the Brusho powder and started out okay, made a mess, regrouped, and ended up back in the pretty cute category.  I will let you decide if it is okay now 🙂

Yay You, 145946

 

What do you think?  My original plan was an embossed butterfly with the surrounding area having the flecks of Brusho. That turned into a quick mess.  Thankfully I had already embossed the butterfly.  So I just began coloring it in.  It is a little darker than intended, but it works.  And after being cut out, it looks totally better than before.  I definitely need more time with the Brusho powders.

This sentiment is the star of the card.  I love that statement and feel I should send it to several people on a regular basis who inspire me everyday!!  It is from the Occasions Catalog Host set, which is usually overlooked.  Now I would place a qualifying order, or have a party, specifically to get that sentiment!  If you feel the same way, please give me a call and lets plan something!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I very  much appreciate you visiting and love to read your comments.  I hope you have an awesome day!

Pals Blog Hop – CASE the Catty

 

Welcome to the Pals Feburary 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “Case the Catty”. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will copy or remake projects from any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs and brochures. After all, who doesn’t CASE (Copy and Share Everything) once in a while. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I have CASED the Flying Home card from page 41 of the Occasions Catalog.  Here is my version.

 

Stampin' Up!, Flying Home, Jackie Beers, stampinup, fly home, jackiebeers

I utilized the layout of the catalog card, but changed the colors, and the sentiment.  The catalog has the center house cut out and raised with dimensionals, I chose to do the same but with the left side house.  I also added the little bee flying by at the bottom.

I had a hard time choosing my designer series paper.  From the Stampin’ Blends colors I used for my bird house colors, I had too many choices of DSP!!  That is definitely a good problem to have.  In the end I narrowed down to these two pages from the Tutti-Fruitti DSP pack.  My sentiment came from the Bird Banter stamp set.  I thought it was very appropriate for my card!

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on March 14, 2018. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We really like that.

Life Is Beautiful

I have another card made with the beautiful A Mother’s Flair stamp set.  It is not a Mother’s Day card, just a focus on one of the stamps.  And it is a really quick one as well.

This card is a great way to utilize the left over strips of Designer Series Paper.  On this card I have used Naturally Eclectic.  The arrows are just one of the strips of arrows.  The blue piece is 2″ wide.

I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp.  I then took lighter shades of pink and green to fill in the flower stamped image.  It is punched with the 2 ” circle punch and the Starburst punch.

Thank you very much for visiting today.  I hope you will stop back tomorrow, as I will be participating in the Stampin’ Pretty Blog Hop.  There will be a large number of great cards / 3-D for you to check out.

Daffodil Spring

I may be a tad early, but I have made my first Easter/Spring card.  This could go either way by simply changing the sentiment.  For me, when the daffodils begin breaking through the the dirt, it is Spring!!  My allergies hate it , but I love it.  When I saw this set in the Occasions Catalog, I knew it had to come to my house and was on my preorder.

 

Stampin' Up!, You're Inspiring, Jackie Beers, stampinup, your inspiring, jackiebeers

You’re Inspiring, 145808

 

I call Daffodils and Jonquils both Daffodils.  I never know the proper names, so please forgive me if I hav it backwards again.  I did start out coloring the entire flower yellow but then thought of the peach and decided to give it my own twist on nature.  And of course, I used the Stampin’ Blends….again  🙂

The large circle layer is a twist on the “Highlighting” technique that was popular years ago.  It is another one of the discoveries I made while cleaning out my craft room.  And the strip of DSP from Delightful Daisy is a great way to use the leftovers from the beautiful paper that you cannot stand to throw away!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great beginning to your week and will visit tomorrow.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Flying Home

This Flying Home stamp set is just adorable.  At first glance I thought it was too similar to some other ones.  But then I thought of each of the stamps in a small frame.  A perfect Springtime sampler.  I did not go that route today though.  This is  just a sweet little 4 X 4 card that would be great for almost any occasion.

Of course, the perfect companion to this cute stamp set are the Stampin’ Blends.  I know I have been utilizing them quite a lot.  They are just so darn easy to use so I find myself reaching for them over and over.

I kept this card super simple.  It is a 4 X 4 with Night of Navy as the base, and navy layered with Whisper White is all I used.  Of course I played with a variety of colors in my flowers and birdhouse. 🙂

This card would be perfect for a Stampin’ Up! Party.  It would be easy for any level of stamper.  If you do not have a demonstrator I would love to talk with you and help you with your stamping needs.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you have an awesome weekend and will stop back next week.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Simple Treat Holder

Before I get to the treat holder I have for you, I want to let you know about a special that begins today.  The Fast Fuse Adhesive Mega Special is back!!  Last year Stampin’ Up! had a promotion and it was so popular that supply depleted much quicker than expected.  Therefore the special was shortened by quite a lot.  It Is Back!!!  From Today through February 12, when you purchase 1 Fast Fuse Adhesive, you will get 2 Fast Fuse Refills FREE !!!  That is an awesome deal!  I hope you will take advantage of it.

Now for the cute little treat holder I have made.  It is super quick, simple, and easy to make multiples of.  I used the Diaper Fold and 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to create it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Tutti Fruiti DSP, Jackie Beers, stampinup, tutti-fruitti, jackiebeers

Tutti Fruiti 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, 145606

 

I just adore this Tutti-Fruitti DSP.  The colors are very vibrant and there are so many different designs.  The sentiment is from the Yay You Host set from the Occasions Catalog.  That set is wonderful and unfortunately gets overlooked being in the back of the little catalog.

I fit a Ghirardelli Chocolate into my little holder.  But I know there are a lot of other candy, tea, etc that would fit in one of these.  You can also make them larger.  Just continue using a square sheet of card stock or DSP.  The hardest decision to make is which direction you want the DSP to go!!

For a more finished product, I wrapped this treat holder up.  I did not have any of the 3 X 6 Gussetted Bags, so I used the 6 X 6 bag and folded it.  My tag is from the carried over from Holiday Catalog set, Labels To Love, and the Everyday Label Punch.  I think this is a sweet little treat to give to someone.

A Good Day!

It is a rainy day here in the Atlanta area.  But that can still be considered a Good Day!  Today’s card is what I think of as a “pick me up” type card.  It would be great to drop in someone’s lunch or as a random act of kindness.

A Good Day, 145873

 

If you have not given this A Good Day set a second look, I hope you will.  All of the pieces are just so cute and versatile.  Today I paired it with the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.  This is to me a SMILE card.

I made this a 4 X 4 card instead of 3 X 3 because I wanted to see more of the DSP.  I think it adds so much to the card.  The background is stamped in So Saffron ink as a soft watermark type layer.  That stamp is from Lovely Wishes.

The measurements and supplies are listed below.  I hope you have an awesome and Great Day!!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base card is 4 X 8 and folded in half
  • The DSP is 3 7/8 X 3 7/8
  • The black layer is 3 X 3
  • The white top layer is 2 7/8 X 2 7/8

Birthday Brew

This is my first time using the Bubble Over Bundle.  I really wish I had played with it sooner.  It is perfect for layering.  There are dies for almost every piece of the stamp set, plus a few extras.  I made a simple card with a little twist to the fold.  It is sort of a side/gate fold card.

Please excuse my finger!  The card did not want to stay closed to have it’s picture made.  It is propped up and was misbehaving!    I made the card pretty plain, with the bottle as the focal point.  I had intended to clear emboss the bottle label, but then glued it down before I remembered to do it.  Duh!!

I have the measurements for this off center fold further down in the post.  I used several products, but they are not necessary.  The Ticket Tear Border Punch could easily be a straight piece of card stock.  I added it to mimic the edge of the bottle cap.  That was my thoughts on using the scalloped ovals instead of straight ovals.

If you have any questions about this card, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I love to hear from you!  And I would especially like to talk with you about joining my Stampin’ Up! Team!!  There are great incentives right now.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base card of Island Indigo is cut 4 X ll
  • Score the base card at 2, and & 1/2, fold and burnish
  • The layer is cut to 5 X 3 3/4
  • Emboss the layer, then cut it to 3 3/4 X 1 3/4 and 3 3/4 X 3 1/4
  • The focal point is adhered to the right half of the front

Half Full

I am thrilled that this stamp set, Half Full, carried over from the Holiday Catalog!  I really hope it is in the next Annual Catalog.  Fingers Crossed !!  The set includes some Christmas sentiments, and also some everyday sentiments.  I love that.  I have quite a few friends who like wine, and I sort of do as well !

The “color of my wine” defined my color choices for this card.  This is a muscadine wine, so I went with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  The splatter is from the Timeless Texture stamp set.  Red Wines tend to end up on my white countertop for some reason, so splatter was appropriate.

The tag is cut with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  The Ribbon is Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon in the Occasions Catalog.  It is so versatile and easy to work with.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  I very much appreciate you visiting my blog.  If you have any questions or are thinking of becoming a demonstrator, I would be thrilled to talk with you.  During Sale-A-Bration is the best time of year to join my team!!
