Heaps of Happiness and more

I apologize for being so late posting today.  It has been a crazy morning.  But it has allowed me to update my blog with the DSP Sale Flyer!  WooHoo!  This is one of my favorite times of the year.  It is the very popular Buy 3, and Get 1 Free on Select Designer Series Paper.  The flyer is at the end of the post so you can see which ones to choose from.  My September Host Code is at the bottom as well.

Another AWESOME bit of news is tomorrow is the beginning of the Holiday Catalog!  I cannot wait for you to be able to order these wonderful items.  I want it all!!

Now on to today’s project.  It is a Happy card, and great for showers of any kind.

 

I love this stamp set!  It is the Birthday Goodness set that has donuts and macarons.  What is not to LOVE??  I wanted to do a variety of colors because I love the different flavors of macarons.  However, the choice of paper made me settle on just two.

I chose the Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow to go with the Daffodil Delight roses.  The designer series paper is a reverse side of one of the Magnolia Lane DSP.

The adorable ribbon combo is actually a Ribbon Combo (HaHa!) from the Magnolia Suite of products.  It is Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo and is the great linen like ribbon with a Mossy Meadow Baker’s Twine to match.

Thank you for checking in today.  Be sure and check out the DSP Sale the starts tomorrow and add it to your list from the Holiday Catalog.  If you do not have a Holiday  Catalog and would like one, please contact me and I will get one to you.

Over The Moon

This is my second post for today.  The first one was about the great specials that Stampin’ Up! has to offer.  You can see that post HERE.

Today’s card is a cutie that I envisioned as soon as I saw this stamp set!  And it fits with all the great updates I mentioned in the earlier post.  I am OVER THE MOON for Stampin’ Up!.

 

 

With the color pallet I used, this could very easily be a baby card.  That was not my intention, but all you would need is a sweet “welcome” on the inside and you are finished.

I stamped everything in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with my favorite things, the Stampin’ Blends.  I colored the Moon with Dark Daffodil Delight and then added the little ring around it with the new Light So Saffron.

I am not a cow expert, but think the black and white ones are usually more black than white.  I took creative license and made it white, with a touch of black.  I wanted you to see all the details in the stamp. I gave her a bit of a feminine touch by adding Light Flirty Flamingo to the ears, nose, and mouth.

When I was trying to decide what else was needed, I thought of the moon and had a lightbulb moment that it needed stars.  The perfect stars came from the Twinkle Builder Punch.  It even has a moon that you could punch and use in place of the stamped one.  I thought the stars were the perfect size.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I was absent yesterday due to storm damage.  Luckily it was not to the house.  Sunday we had a lightning strike into the ground about ten feet from the corner of the house.  It fried the air conditioner unit, cable, internet, and an electrical breaker.  Thankfully we have friends who do those things and along with the cable company got up and running by the end of the day on Monday.  For once I was ahead and already had scheduled Monday’s post.

My June Host Code is M2PNZPVT.  Please use this code for orders under $150.00.  I will have a small perk for those with orders over $50.00.

Napkin Fold Baby Gift Tag

Today’s card is a 3 X 3 Gift Tag with the cutest little critter and fold around.  The fold is from my very sweet friend Julie DiMatteo from The Paper Pixie.  She did both the 3 X 3 and a box it fits into.  You can see her wonderful video HERE.  She explains projects wonderfully and it would be a mistake for me to try to do better!!

I needed a baby card and ended up with a card and a gift tag all in one.  Plus it was so much fun to make that I made several of the Napkin ‘folds using different DSP.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Little Wild, Little Wild, Naturally Eclectic, Jackie Beers

A Little Wild, 144344

 

I truly adore the cute animal tags in the A Little Wild set and matching dies.  I have used them several times as just individual animals, and am really thrilled with the great tag it makes.  Who knew?  A tag works as a tag!!!  Silly me!!

And here is the Napkin Fold part.  It is very easy, really cute, and as a classic Julie DiMatteo project, it is much easier than it looks!!

.

 

 

 

The inside sentiment and little flower are from the  A Little Wild stamp set as well.  I really love the idea of this being a tag and card.  It is a great way to add a little something extra with the fold.  As I said earlier, I got carried away making these folds and now have several ready to be made into cards for easy Thank You type hand outs.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I greatly appreciate you visiting and your comments.  The animal tags are carrying over into the new catalog.  But alas, the DSP is retiring.  Now is the perfect time to grab up the retiring DSP while it is still available and a bit discounted.

All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Another Paper Pumpkin Special:  The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out.  So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that.  New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price.  So 2 months for the price of 1.  A great deal.  Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up!

Gift Card For Baby

As part of the Stamping Event I am enjoying today, we are doing a Shoebox Swap tonight.  I decided to make a versatile card.   My card is designed for a baby/Mom & Dad card.  However, by simply changing one stamp it would be changed for almost any occasion.  The Designer Series Paper would work for almost any reason as well.

 

Better Together, 141736

 

 

I know you have seen this card before either from me or others.  It is such a useful and pretty card that it needs repeating periodically I do believe!

With using this beautiful Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, I really did not want to cover it up.  So I went with simplicity in the focal point on the front which allows the DSP to shine.

 

And here is a view of the inside and the gift card slot.

 

Stampin' Up!, Better Together, Jackie Beers

 

Now you see the gift card slot and will understand the directions listed under Measurements below.  Be sure and add the Tear & Tape close to the edge so you have plenty of room for your gift card.  Although if you do make it too tight, it is not the end of the world….. There is plenty of room for the card to slide in long way also.  Not planned, but a nice unexpected find!!

NOTE:  If you are like me and really love this paper, buy morel now!!!  As it gets closer to the new catalog this, and other items, may sell out.  And they will definitely be retired when the current catalog ends.  Sad, but happy to see what new papers are revealed!

Thank you so much for visiting today!  If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.  And if you do not currently have a SU Demonstrator, I would love to send you a catalog and help you with any future purchases.

The measurements and the supplies are listed further down.  I hope you have an awesome weekend!!

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base of Soft Sky card stock is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Score at 1 1/2 , 5 1/2
  • Fold and burnish the score lines.  Fold the smallest section to the inside.
  • Place Tear & Tape on each side of the small section close to the edges.  Your gift card slides in here.

Sweet Little Someone

I am playing along with the Global Design Project challenge again ,GDP123, and this time I will submit it within the time period.  This challenge is New Beginnings.  The set I immediately thought of is one that I have not used but a few times.  It is the super cute “A Little Wild” set.  The adorable animals make tags or can be used as front/back on a card.  I just used the front of the precious elephant for my card.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Little Wild, Jackie Beers, stampinup, a little wild, jackiebeers

A Little Wild, 144344

I used the blends to color again.  I told you I am hooked on those pens.  That aside, I love the elephant holding the balloon.  I think it is a cute Welcome Baby type card.  The other animals in the set would be just as adorable.

To get just the front of the elephant, I used my Momento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and just tapped it on the one side of the stamp.  I have found that from using the Absorber cloth to clean my stamps that I do not have the light color left.  Before I would have a pale pinkish residue that would stamp when I didn’t want it to!

The balloon is from the Balloon Bouquet Punch and is the larger of the two.  I then took the Sweet Sugarplum marker and went around the edge of the white balloon to give it some depth.  This is a great trick to use when you do not have the layering of card stock.
