Beauty Blooms

Once again I have used the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack as the focal layer on my card.  This time I also used the Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper to go with it.  I did choose to use a color that is not as noticeable in most of the papers in the pack.  I went with Rich Razzleberry.

The layer containing the sentiment is the card from the M & M card pack.  I just colored it a little with the Stampin’ Blends and added a sentiment.  How easy is that!  The Designer Series Paper and the Card Pack are the stars of this show.  I hope you liked it.

My fold is one I use fairly often.  It begins with 4 1/4 X 11, folded in half and then the front piece folded either under or to the top.  You can also make this a gift card holder by cutting off a little of the piece folded under.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  Have a wonderful day, and please visit again tomorrow!!

InKing Royalty February Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate birthdays. The opening line from The Beatles’ “Birthday” song ran through our heads as we joyfully created the birthday-themed creations we share with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I made a Happy Birthday party card!  I believe this is the “happiest” birthday card I have ever made.  So it is very appropriate for a themed blog hop.  The We Must Celebrate stamp set was the perfect set for what I envisioned.

If you noticed that my animals are not in the line like their stamp is, you are very observatve.  I cut them apart!!  I know it is a shock to a lot of you, and it is the first time I have ever had the nerve to do this.  I have to say that it will not be the last time I do it.  I love the versatility it gives.  And I cut them so that they nestle back together on a large clear block just like they originally were.  A win/ win for me.

I colored the guys with the Stampin’ Blends, my favorite product right now.  The DSP is the FREE Bubbles & Fizz DSP from Sale-A-Bration.  The layers are Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral.  I made a banner and gave it a jaunty angle to go with my happy guys on the card.

The measurements are below the list of blog hop names.  I have some funky measurements because I started with a piece of Whisper White that was on my desk and loved how it turned out.  So I had to work with those measurements.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Pam Morris at TapTapStamp. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Fortunate To Know You

This card, and the stamp set I used to make it, are so fun and would be perfect for my husband!!  He would eat Chinese food every day I think.  If you have anyone like that in your family/friends group then this is a must have stamp set.

Fortunate To Know You, 145892

 

I made this in a more feminine colors than I would if it were for my husband, but isn’t this just perfect for a Chinese food lover?  I stamped everything on the Whisper White layer using the Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  Yes, I know I am addicted to these blends, so please forgive me using them all the time.  I stamped and colored the fortune, and then stamped and colored it on a scrap piece and cut it out.  It is made a little wavy by bending with my bone folder and then raising it with stampin’ dimensionals.

The card stock I used is a base of Rich Razzleberry and then the Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper as more of a second focal point.  I finished by wrapping some Linen Thread around a few times.  And the bow is made using two strands of thread and secured with a glue dot.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate your visits and your comments.  I love to read what you like about the cards I design.  And if you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Be Happy

One of the fabulous Sale-A-Bration sets is the Happy Wishes stamp set.  With a qualifying order of either $40.00 or $100.00 these items are FREE.  Yes, this set is with a $100.00 order, but it is so very worth it.  This set has almost any sentiment you would want and they are done in beautiful fonts.  I went with the simple “Be Happy” sentiments.  This is my new mantra. Don’t sweat the little stuff, just be happy!

Happy Wishes, SAB, 147227

 

 

Do you recognize the card stock beneath the sentiment?  That is really a trick question!!  Sorry about that 🙂  I used the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack.  This pack is also a Sale-A-Bration item that you can get at no cost with a qualifying order.  These cards are for way more than just the memory pages.  The cards are double sided with great quotes/sentiments, super DSP type designs and partial cards like the one I chose to use.  And they come in two different sizes.

For the card I chose to use, it already has the flower design and thin green stripe below the white open area.  The Happy Wishes sentiment fit perfectly in the open area.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the flowers with the Stampin’ Blends.  And that is it.  A little layering and complete.  I really love a super quick card.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you will take a second look at a both this stamp set and the Memories and More Card Pack.  They are both a win/win.  I have listed the measurements for my card and the supplies are at the bottom of the page.

I would love to help you earn these FREE items during SAB.  Please contact me and let’s discuss your wish list!

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base card of Garden Green cut to 5 1/2 X 8 and folded in half
  • Layer of Whisper White cut to 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • Layer of Rich Razzleberry cut to 5 1/4 X 4
  • Layer of Garden Green cut to 4 1/8 X 3 1/8

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.

 

Stampin' Up!, Pop of Paradise, Jackie Beers, stampinup , paradise, jackiebeers

Pop of Paradise, 141581

 

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.

Thank you for visiting today.  I appreciate your visits and comments very much.  I hope you have an awesome weekend! The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

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 🙂

 

Stampin' Up!, Yay You, Jackie Beers, stampinup, yay you, jackiebeers

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

Flying Home, 145929

 

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.
