Celebrate

Today I have once again used the Cake Soiree stamp set.  I have paired it with the fabulous Gorgeous Grape from the Color Revamp.  This is a beautiful color and if you are a fan of purples, then this one is definitely for you.

Please forgive the smudge under the cake!  Somehow by simply laying on my craft table waiting for me to take the photograph it got a smudge!  I cannot even blame it on one of the cats!!

I colored the cake with the Stampin’ Blends. And WOOHOO they are back in stock to catch up on the backorders and I am anxiously awaiting the availability of the additional colors.  I do LOVE the Stampin’ Blends.  The background layer of Pear Pizzaz is embossed with the Ruffled Impressions Embossing Folder.  This gives almost a 3D effect in person.

There are three new items on this card as well.  The 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, which comes in Whisper White and Very Vanilla, and the Detailed Trio Punch.  Both are awesome!  The ribbon is very easy to work with and added just enough of an additional element.  The Detailed Trio Punch is super!  It punches the little flower you see here.  It also punches a ribbon hole as well as is a corner rounder.  And it is super easy to use.  If you had the trio punch from a few years ago, it might have been a little difficult to actually punch.  At least mine was.  This one is super easy and I love the little flower!  As well as the corner rounder since the old one retired. Oh…..I forgot the 3rd item.  It is the Share What You Love Pearls.  And they are gorgeous.  I added several of them to my cake and the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you like this card.  I see it as a birthday or a bridal shower.  All of the supplies I have listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you have a great rest of your day!

 


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.

Celebrating You

I am Celebrating You for a Birthday Card.  But I am really celebrating the Stamparatus!  WooHoo!! I really love that Stampin’ Up! made some awesome additions to a stamping tool that we all love.  My card today uses the Stamparatus to make a wreath from a regular flower.  There are several videos out showing how to make the template. I am not going to recreate the wheel so I will just explain a little and show you my card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Stamparatus, Hand Delivered, Daisy Delight, Share What You Love, Jackie Beers

Stamparatus, 146276

Isn’t that Daisy Wreath just adorable?  And it only takes a couple of minutes to get it stamped in a perfect circle.  The little daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set is a two-step stamp.  I stamped first with Crushed Curry and then did the solid stamp with Flirty Flamingo.

The sentiment is from Hand Delivered.  It is my favorite of the new Host Rewards stamp sets.  It is extremely versatile and just darn cute!  And I am sure you recognize the designer series paper as the Share What You Love Specialty DSP.  I see myself going through several packs of this over the upcoming year.

OK to the wreath.  I took a piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock to make my template. I did not measure it but it was probably 6 X 6.   Using the largest of the non scalloped Layering Squares (approximately 2 7/8)   I placed it in the center of the 6 X 6 and cut it out with the Big Shot.  I then turned it so it was like a diamond and centered it again over the square that I had just cut.  Once you have that cut out , you are ready to go.

This card began as just an experiment to see how my lining up of the cuts were.  So I used the square that was first cut out.  You place the now template on the stamparatus and secure it.  Insert the square back into the square hole and place your stamp in the center top of the square.  Ink, stamp, turn your square to the diamond position (I rotated counter-clockwise each time) ink, stamp, repeat.  And you end up with a perfect circle!  Who Knew!!!  I am in love all over again with the Stamparatus

Thank you for visiting with me today!  I really appreciate it and one of these days I will create my first video and I will not be sending you off to someone else’s video.  All of the products I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you will give this a try.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Party

Yesterday’s Bike Ride card was a small centered focal point.  Today is basically the same, without a sentient, and very unintentional.  I have played with the Cake Soiree stamp set and from the large set I chose one little stamp.  I suppose I am in “small” mode this week!

 

Stampin' Up!, Cake Soiree, Tranquil Texture, Jackie Beers

Cake Soiree, 145745

 

I believe that the Designer Series Paper, Tranquil Texture, is more prominent than the stamped gift.  I really, really love this paper and combination of colors.  I stamped the package onto the DSP and then colored the flowers using the Stampin’ Blends.  (Which are back in supply!  WooHoo!!)  I used the colors from the DSP for my blending.

I wanted this to be just a cute card and decided not to add a sentiment.  To help enhance the center, I added the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon for some shine and bold color.  I also added the silver/white baker’s twine for the package bow.   I know the colors seem a tad dark, but the dark layers of the card are the returning favorite Blackberry Bliss.  The base of the card is one of the New colors, Balmy Blue.  It is a really nice and soft blue.

Thank You !

The title should read Thank You For Your Service!!  Although we are thanking the service men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice . Remembering those who did not come home is the hardest I believe.  I am very appreciative of all our Service Men and Women.   So please remember them today as you are celebrating with family and friends.

To honor our fallen heroes, I could not find my military stamp set. So I created what I hope will be appreciated.  I used the Ribbon Of Courage and my Stampin’ Write Markers.

 

Ribbon of Courage, 143855

Of course, my colors are Red , White, and Blue.  I colored the stamp with the red, left the center uncolored, and the bottom in blue.  I then went around the edges and inside lines with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker to define everything.  It actually turned out like I envisioned it!  that doesn’t happen very often.

Thank you for taking the time to check my card today.  I very much appreciate it.  I hope you can enjoy this day with family and friends.   My thoughts are also with those having damage from the storm.  The supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.
