VIDEO - Detailed Floral Thinlits Treat Pouch

Have you seen the Detailed Floral Thinlits on page 77 of the NEW CATALOG!!  These dies are absolutely fabulous!!  I have created  a few cards with them but this pouch is my fave right now.  I made my original with Thick Whisper White cardstock as I felt a treat pouch needed thicker card stock.

Bag

This was a project included in my June Be a Big Shot at Home packet.  The gals that participate in this class are mailed the supplies to create 3-4 projects each month and then at the end of the four months, they each receive a $150 gift certificate from me to spend on anything they want from the catalog.

I have a video for you that shows you how to create this pouch.

Banner_surprise_checkerboard

I cut the card into 1/2" strips, added some Fast Fuse to a layer of Whisper White and added the strips.  I staggered them as I put them on my white layer lining up the opposite colors.

Checkerboard Checkerboard1

I cut the edge off the sheet with the labels to stamp my greeting and then flagged the ends.  I also cut a thin strip off the gold sticker sheet and snipped a bit off for the end of the banner.  Wrapped some of the NEW 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon in Tip Top Taupe and finished it off with some of the sequins included in the kit.

Designer Tin of Cards - In Color Cards!

I was inspired by our bi-monthly magazine called Stampin' Success to create this set of In Color Cards.  I love every one of this years In Colors and want to use them on every project I make.

The cards are very simple so I could crank these five cards out in a matter of minutes.  Sometimes, I just need to make quick and easy cards.

In_color_group

The main card base was embossed using the NEW Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing folder.  I cut 1 x 5 strips from the 2016-2018 In Color Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack, cropped the ends with the Banner Triple Punch and added a snippet of the NEW Ruched Ribbon.  This is the Sweet Sugarplum.

Sweet_sugarplum

Here is the same card in Emerald Envy.

Emerald_envy

The scallop and circle are dies included in the Layering Circles Framelits.  I used the #5 scallop on the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the #4 circle for the layer with the greeting.  The greeting is from the new Designer Tin of Cards stamp set.  A must have!!

Designer_tin_cards
Here are photos showing you the sizes of each die.  I numbered mine using a Sharpie Marker starting with #1 on the smallest die.

Simple Foxy Friends Card

Here's a super simple card that you could make a ton of in a short period of time. I used the New Foxy Friends Bundle. Purchasing the bundle saved me 10% and I love saving money!!

Foxy_friends_missing_you

Ink full fox body in Calypso Coral and stamp on the 3x3 piece of Whisper White, add the legs with Memento Tuxedo Black. Crop with the 2-7/16" Circle Framelit. Ink the head of the full fox body, stamp it on a scrap of Whisper White. Add the face with Tuxedo Memento Black and crop with the Fox Builder Punch. Add to full fox image with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Lay the circle on the card where you want it to be placed, ink the floral sprig in Pool Party and stamp it above the circle. Remove the circle and set it aside. Crop the end of the Chevron strip of paper with the Banner Triple Punch. Add to card front with SNAIL Adhesive. Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the circle piece and place it under the wreath.

Tie a bow with a piece of Smoky Slate 1/8" Stitched Ribbon and add to circle with a Mini Glue Dot. Ink the image of your choice from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and stamp under the banner.

VIDEO - Best Badge Punch for a Scalloped Edge

Had a chance to play a bit with my new Badges & Banners Bundle last week.  I was working on some swaps and wanted to use this bundle for one of them.

While I was making my swaps, I realized that the Best Badge Punch can be used to create a fun scalloped edge on your projects.  I filmed a video for you showing you a couple of different ways to do this.  Scroll down to view the video.

I used a couple of our NEW In Colors on this card, Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach.  The measurements are:

Sweet Sugarplum -4-1/4 x 11
Whisper White - 3 x 4, 2-1/4 x 2-1/2Peekaboo Peach - 2-3/4 x 4

Badges_banners

I started by adding a strip of the Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape along the left edge of the card and then I used the Project Life Corner Rounder on the right side.  The flower image is from the NEW Touches of Texture stamp set, we received this set as a gift on the Mediterranean Cruise. :-)

Badge_video_thumbnail

The greeting is in the Badges & Banners stamp set and was cropped with the Duet Banner Punch.  I added some Wink of Stella Clear to the stamped flowers for some sparkle.  You can see more on this card in the video.

Sprinkles of Life and the Layering Squares Framelits

Here's a fun card I made using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set, a few NEW In Colors and the Layering Squares Framelits.  (see below for some size charts)

Sprinkles_life_new_colorsMeasurements:
Crumb Cake - 4-1/4 x 5-1/2
Watermelon Wonder 4 x 5-1/2
Flirty Flamingo 3-1/4 x 11
Whisper White 3 x 5-1/2
Mint Macaron 3 x 3 for scallop square frame

I started by folding my Flirty Flamingo piece in half and running it though the Big Shot with the Large Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and folded it in half. I die cut a square out of the top center using the #5 square framelit (see charts below for sizes). I glued this piece to the back of my Crumb Cake layer.  I used the #5 square again on my scrap of Mint Macaron and then cut the frame with the #7 scallop and glued it around the window.  Wrap some Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon around the front and tie it in a knot.  I stamped "a big" in Dapper Demin ink on a 5/8" strip of Whisper White and flagged the ends with my Paper Snips.

Sprinkles_life_new_colors1

Add the Watermelon Wonder layer to the inside of the card and stamp your images on the Whisper White layer to complete the card.  Take care that your tree shows through the window.

Painter's Palette Shaker Card

Here's my first shaker card using the NEW Foam Adhesive Strips. Can I ellyou that this was the easiest shaker card ever!!! I stamped the easel and used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut out the middle. I added a layer of SNAIL Adhesive around the back side of the frame and adhered a piece of window sheet to the back. Added the Foa Adhesive Strips, dumped in my confetti and, removed the backing layers and added anogther piece of cardsstock...DONE!!!!

Painters_palette_shaker

The back sheet of cardstock was covered with the Playful Designer Washi Tape before I added it to the back of my shaker image.

My confetti was easily created by using the NEW Sprinkles Punch.

The easel and greeting words were inked in Versamark, covered in the NEW Copper Embossing Powdedr and heat set.  I then cut the words apart and added them to the card with more pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips.

Swirly Bird - Flowers!

I am still playing with the Swirly Bird stamp set and this time, I have created some fun and bright flowers.

I have also posted a Kite Card and a Sailboat Card using this same stamp set.


Swirly_bird_corner

I stamped the large images in Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party and then over stamped the Pool Party images with the swirl inked in Bermuda Bay.  The leaves were stamped in Cucumber Crush and then the "veins" were added with Emerald Envy.  The "veins" are actually the stems for the smaller flowers.  This set has so many possibilities!!!

The small circle in the center of the large Flamingo flower was punched with the 1/2" Circel Punch and then covered with Wink of Stella in clear, love that stuff!!!

The splatter in the background is Pool Party stamped off once and the image comes from the Painter's Palette stamp set.  My greeting is from the Love & Affection stamp set.
