Hogs & Kisses

When I was looking through my stamp sets for an idea, I happened upon the “This Little Piggy” set.  I was so happy when this set carried over into the current annual catalog.  But I have not used it very  much lately.  So I dusted it off and have a sweet little card for you.

 

Stampin' Up!, This Little Piggy, Jackie Beers, stampinup, little piggy, jackiebeers

This Little Piggy, 143922

 

I used one pig with his sentiment masked off, and then stamped the sentiment from a different pig.  The sitting up piggy is what fit the layout I had in mind.  My photography has not been great of late.  For some reason the colors are not looking true.  The rust color is actually Calypso Coral with Lemon Lime Twist.  I will have to correct that.

In case you are not familiar with the stamp set, the little image on the cross piece is little kisses 🙂  It is part of the stamp set and oh so appropriate for the sentiment.  This card could be a sweet note for someone special or a Valentine’s Day Card as well.  The bonus is that it is super quick and simple to make.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I hope you have an awesome weekend.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

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.

InKing Royalty January 2018 Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes will be inspired by popular songs – the first is “I Think I Love You.” Our Blog Hop today is jam-packed with projects that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or that showcase love. How sweet is that?! We are excited to share our love-themed creations 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 went a little “Love You” crazy on my card!  This week I have been making cards using ideas and layouts from cards that are several years old.  I found the idea for today’s card in a box of old swap cards.  I loved the idea, so I recreated it with LOVE in mind.

Stampin' Up!, Sure Do Love You, Jackie Beers, stampinup, sure do love you, jackiebeers

Sure Do Love You Bundle, 145653

 

I have been going a little overboard with the bright colors lately.  This is another one.  It didn’t start out that way, but sort of evolved.  Hopefully you can see that it would be cute in more subdued, and maybe less, colors!

The paperclip is the focal point of the card and can be used as a bookmark or attach a magnet for a totally different purpose.  To make the paperclip heart, I cut a solid heart and the stamped heart using the Lots To Love Box Framelits.  I placed several stampin’ dimensionals between the two hearts and around the paperclip.  The two Lemon Lime Twist hearts are cut using the same set of framelits as well.

The measurements will be at the bottom of the post after the blog hop list.  There are also some hints to make the paperclip fit better.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Shawn de Oliveira,  https://www.shawnstamps.com/

  • Measurements and Hints:

  • The card base is 5 1/2 X 8 scored and folded in half
  • The next layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • The DSP layer is 5 X 3 3/4
  • The larger Pocket layer is 2 1/2 X 4 1/2
  • The next layer is 2 1/4 X 4 1/4
  • The DSP strip is 1 1/8 X 2 1/4
  • Hint:  I used the 3/4 ” Circle Punch and punched in the center of the top pocket layer.  I then punched again just a little on each side of that to allow the paperclip to slide in.
  • When you are taping the pocket layers together, have the paperclip through the slit.  Otherwise the pocket is too flat and may pull away from the card.  The same when applying the pocket to the card.
  • I suggest using Tear & Tape, or a similarly strong tape and go around the edges of both layers. (Adhering to the bottom pocket layer and the card itself.
  • ENJOY!!!

Panda Love

I have a warm and fuzzy Panda Love for you today.  These little guys are so cute and so easy to work with that I could not resist another quick card.

 

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas Jackie Beers, stampinup, party pandas, jackiebeers

Party Pandas, 147221

 

The Party Pandas set is a Sale-A-Bration set.  You can get it FREE, with the purchase of $50.00 from the Annual or Occasions Catalogs.  Besides the panda, the second star of the card is the Painted With Love Designer Series Paper.  I could use this paper every day!  It is beautiful on each side of every sheet.  I don’t think I have ever said that before.

The “Love” on the envelope is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.  There are a couple of small words from that set that fit perfectly on the little envelope.  Obviously the color inspiration came from the DSP.  I love Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo would not normally put the two together.  But WOW!!,  I love them together with this small piece of paper that combines both.

The other highlight of the card is the Glitter & Clear Shapes.  I used the small round ones for the Panda’s eyes.  It gives it a 3-D look and makes the stand out.  The hardest part of this card is cutting all the layers.  I have provided the measurements that I used below.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I appreciate the lovely comments and am happy to answer any questions you have.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Rich Razzleberry base is cut to 11 X 4 1/4 and folded in half for a top fold card
  • The two larger pieces (Melon Mambo and DSP) are cut to 2 1/2 X 4 each
  • The two larger Basic Black pieces are cut to 2 5/8 X 4 1/8
  • The Whisper White piece is cut to 1 7/8 X 2 5/8
  • The small Basic Black piece is cut to 2 X 2 3/4

Birdy Love

The Bird Banter stamp set is such a fun set to use.  There are so many possibilities.  Today I made an unusual pairing that are young at heart.  I say that because of their funky hair colors !!  I took quite a bit of artistic license in my color choices.

Bird Banter, 145852

 

Can you see the blue tipped hair on the cockatoo?  I say there are no rules in our color choices, or hair styles!!

The Painted With Love Designer Series Paper is still the star of the show.  It was also the color inspiration for the most part.  The Pool Party was an add on.  I colored with the Stampin’ Blends again.  I am so in love with these pens.  They are the easiest to color with.  I am definitely no expert, so this shows how forgiving they are to work with.

The balloon is stamped and cut from a small scrap of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  Never throw away your scraps, but especially DSP scraps.  They are perfect for small accents.

This is a 4 X 4 card that is very quick to complete.  It would be great to make a set with the different birds from this set. Hhhmmm……I may have to do that.  Stay tuned.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Rich Razzleberry base cut 8 X 4 and folded in half
  • Very Vanilla layer 3 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • DSP layer 3 5/8 X 3 5/8
  • Rich Razzleberry center layer 2 5/8 X 2 5/8
  • Very Vanilla center layer 2 1/2 X 2 1/2

 

Thank you so much for visiting with me today!  I hope you enjoyed this card.  I would love to hear from you.  And if you do not have a current Stampin’ Up!

January Pals Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals January 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “From the Heart” featuring heartfelt projects like Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and Sympathy. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For today’s blog hop, I went with bright colors and gold embossing on a  Valentine’s Day card.  This Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is the star though.  It is even prettier in person.  Because the paper is so beautiful, I went with a fairly simple layout.

 

Stampin' Up! Sure Do Love You, Jackie Beers, stampinup, sure do love you, jackiebeers

Sure Do Love You, 145766

 

All of the stamps I used are in the new stamp set “Sure Do Love You”.  The floral heart did not catch my eye at first.  But when I started thinking of the card, I knew it was perfect to surround the sentiment.  And with the gold foil in the DSP I had to emboss the floral heart with gold as well.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry.  The little “always” is stamped in Melon Mambo and die cut using the Lots To Love Box Framelit.  These are matching framelits for the stamp set.  Purchased as a bundle, you save 10% on this fabulous stamp set and extremely versatile set of framelits!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.
