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!

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.

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 🙂

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.

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.

Friends Fur-Ever

I did something scary yesterday!  I cut apart a stamp !!! That is the first time I have ever done that.  I have seen a few cards with the We Must Celebrate stamp set and the lovable little animals.  And then I saw other demonstrators posting cards with only one of the animals, and another with several stacked on top of each other..  That was my deciding moment.  What do you think of this?

Looking at these cute faces makes me smile.  Since I have been on a coloring kick with the Stampin’ Blends for a while, these cute animals just fit right in.  In a way I think it looks like a kid colored it.  Then I look again and really liked it.  But I hope it gives you ideas for this wonderful stamp set.

The background was totally created with the Stampin’ Blends.  I like the unevenness of the grass and sky.  It gives it some depth without looking too solid.  But more that anything, I just enjoyed coloring and letting my imagination go.  I really hope you will give it a try as well.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

Kind Thoughts

I spent part of the day on Sunday coloring with the Stampin’ Blends markers.  Oh my….they are so special.  I like them more every time I use them.  There have been many examples of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper being colored with the blends.  That is what I did.  Here is one of the cards.

 

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

You’re Inspiring, 145808

 

I named the photo for the stamp set I used.  But the real star of the card is the Petal Passion DSP.  I cut a strip of the 12 X 12 DSP into three 4 X 4 pieces.  I then colored each of them differently.  I was really enjoying the easy flow and no lines of the Stampin’ Blends.  I used pretty much all of the colors in the three pieces.  Well, maybe not the browns.

After I finished coloring and decided to do a regular A2 card and not a 4X4, I chose a simple but special sentiment to go with my flowers.  The sentiment is from the You’re Inspiring stamp set.  It is focused towards Easter, but I do believe the sentiments are very special indeed.  So after I stamped it and debated on doing something additional, I looked at it, and said “no”.

I mentioned that I did three pieces.  Here are the others.  I will make cards with them later.  What I wanted to show you is the background for each.  The two colored pieces are sort of hard to tell apart, but hopefully you can see the difference in the backgrounds. The far right is the Light Pool Party, middle is Dark Pool Party, and the card is Light Bermuda Bay.   I think they look like wallpaper or gift wrap.  Wouldn’t they make a great gift for someone?  Hhhmmm…
