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.

Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts, 145826

 

 

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!!

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!

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.

A Mother’s Flair, 145905

 

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.

So Sweet ! #GDP122

 

I saw the layout from the current Global Design Project Challenge yesterday and decided I really liked the layout.  So of course I will be submitting a card at the last minute.  The story of my life lately!  This card is super cute and SWEET though!

 

Stampin' Up!, Fruit Basket, Jackie Beers, stampinup, fruit basket, jackiebeers

Fruit Basket, 145833

Who doesn’t love strawberries???  I even have a strawberry birthmark (thankfully very faded now).  So when I saw this set, I knew I had to have it.  These berries are extremely easy to line up the berry and the cap.  The set is photopolymer which makes it match perfectly.  I added some Wink of Stella to the single berry on the left, but it doesn’t show in the photograph.

I did stamp what I think would be called a “reverse mask” to do the berries outside the basket.  I stamped the basket on scrap card stock and then cut it out.  That way I could have some berries on the table in front of it.

I hope you will give this set a try.  The little fruit pieces have a matching punch set!  Woohoo! I will definitely be using that in my next card.  The supplies I used are listed  the bottom of the page.  If you have any questions, please contact me.  I love hearing from you.

Heartfelt Thank You

Today I have used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set that I have probably seen the most cards from.  It is the Heartfelt Blooms.  Like many of you comment, “this wasn’t on my radar until I began seeing such beautiful examples”.  Well, that was me in this case.  And I went pretty monochromatic with my color.  The stamp is perfect for this type stamping.

This is one card that is probably the simplest and quickest I have made.  I wanted something soft for a change and the Wisteria Wonder fits that bill perfectly.  The Petal Burst Embossing Folder really flatters the flowers.  I flicked the Wisteria Wonder marker against the lid for the speckles of color.  I would love to receive this card!!

A quick card and a short and sweet post, what a combination!  Thank you very much for visiting today.  I appreciate you checking my posts and your kind comments.  If you ever have any questions, or would like to inquire about joining my team, please contact me.  I would love to talk with you.

A Treat For You

Here is another of my cards that are inspired by my cleaning out my craft room.  I have a Love/Hate relationship going on with it right now!!  I am enjoying looking through the old cards.  Today’s idea came from a gift tag and I scaled it down to fit the Everyday Label Punch.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Good Day, Jackie Beers

A Good Day, 145873

 

And here is the little insert :

 

Stampin' Up!, A Good Day, Jackie Beers

A Good Day, 145873

 

When I was trying to resize the little envelope to fit the Everyday Label Punch, I realized I need to challenge myself in math more often.  Oh My!!!  It took quite a bit longer than was necessary.  In the long run, I believe the time was well spent.  I am happy with how this card came out.

The color inspiration was the Tutti-Fruitti 6 X 6 DSP.  Although I used Pacific Point instead of Night of Navy, the strawberry DSP was my inspiration.  The little ice cream cone on the note is (at least in my mind) strawberry ice cream. HaHa!

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Base card is 11 X 4 1/4 scored and folded in half
  • The strips of Pacific Point are 1/4 X 5 1/2 each
  • The DSP is 3 X 5 1/2

 

  • The envelope is 5 X 2 3/4, score at 1/2″ down each long side, and at 2 3/8 across the center.
  • Fold and burnish all the lines.
  • When folded in half, one side is longer than the other.  Cut each 1/2 side scores off of the longer end.
  • Miter the corners on the 1/2 sides that are left
  • Use the 1/2″ circle punch to make the little half notch for easier tag removal
  • Add Fast Fuze on the sides.  Place the punched piece inside as you close so that you have easy sliding room.
  • Use the hand held 1/8″ punch to punch a hole in the end of the tag and add the desired ribbon.

 

Thank you very much for visiting today!  I hope you enjoyed this little card.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.
