Bear Hugs on Polka Dots and the Winner!!

Have you seen the super cute Bear Hugs stamp set and coordinating Bear Hugs Framelits? It is an adorable bundle and here is my first card using it.

Bear_hugs_red
Bear_hugs_bundleTIP - order the stamp set and framelits as a bundle and save 15%.

 

 




I stamped the large bear in Basic Black and then used my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker to color it.
  Bear_hugs_red_close

The flowers also have a coordinating die which made it super easy to cut them out. :-)  I layered the bear on a label that I cropped out of Bermuda Bay.  The label was wrapped with some Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon and everything was mounted on layers of Whisper White, Basic Black and the Real Red card base.

TIP-I don't think I would use brightly colored post-it notes again as they bled.  Thankfully, they didn't bleed to the layer below. :-)

Anniversary Week - VIDEO Faux Watercolor Rose Wonder Bundle Day 4

Day 4 of my Anniversary Week Celebration and I have a gorgeous faux watercolored card for you. I stamped the large rose with leaves image on a piece of our Vellum Cardstock using Versamark ink. I covered it with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set it. The trick to adding color to vellum is to add it on the back side. Check out my video below to see how and why it's done on the backside.

The celebration continues with today's card and a How to Video.  This card uses the leafy stem image from the Rose Wonder stamp set.  I inked the image numerous times with Mossy Meadow (I am so sad that this color is leaving us next month!!) and randomly stamped the image onto Shimmery White Cardstock a few times.

Rose_wonder_leaves

I started by coloring some of the leaves with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen.  Then I went back and colored the remaining leaves with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen swirled in Mossy Meadow ink.  So I have green shimmery leaves too!  Check out the video for a how to on this technique that really shows the shine.

Anniversary Week - Spotlight on the Rose Wonder Bundle Day 1

13anniversary
This week, I celebrate my 13th year as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and I am also spotlighting the Rose Wonder Bundle all week!!  I have some how-to videos for you and as part of my week long celebration, I am giving away Endless Birthday Wishes Card Kits with your orders and I have Blog Candy!!! See the details of these offers below.

My first Rose Wonder Bundle project is this card and I used the smaller rose Thinlit and the single open leaf Thinlit along with one of the greetings in the stamp set.  I cut the rose from Watermelon Wonder Cardstock and two of the leafy stems out of Cucumber Crush.  I attached them to the card with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Rose_wonder_watermelon

I have a layer of the diagonal stripe Designer Series Paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Paper Stack.  The divider strip between the DSP and the Whisper White card stock is actually the yummy Watermelon Wonder 1" Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I put a strip of our Tear & Tape Adhesive along the back of the DSP and then adhered it to the ribbon only showing about 1/4", just enough to separate the two.

Rose_wonder_watermelon_close
A Metal Rimmed Pearl is just the right accent piece at the base of the leaves.

My 13th Anniversary Week starts tomorrow but..

I couldn't wait to show you one of the AWESOME cards done with the Rose Wonder Bundle!  I will be spotlighting this Bundle all week!!

I received this card in a swap a couple of months ago.  Meg used the Baby Wipe Technique with these awesome colors to get the multi color look with the large rose stamp.  She used Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Crushed Curry.

Rose_wonder_baby_wipe
The Watermelon Wonder 1" Stitched Satin Ribbon serves as the perfect separator on this card and I love the use of the Metal Rimmed pearl at the base of the leaf sprig. 

Rose_wonder_baby_wipe_close
Fold a Baby Wipe in half and add pools/streams of different colors of reinker, use this as your "stamp pad".  Be sure to clean the stamp if you want to ink different parts of the stamp in different colors each time.  Get out those Baby Wipes and see what you can come up with.

Sale-a-bration Perfect Pairings

 

Perfect_pairingsPerfect Pairings is one of the remaining Sale-a-bration choices and I enjoy the different fonts in this set.

Here's a card I did for a swap that uses two of the greetings in the set along with the some of the products featured in the Botanical Gardens Suite

See all the Botanical Gardens Suite Products in my store.

 

Botanical_gardens_dsp_gold

I used a few of the patterns from the Botanical Gardens DSP pack as my main layer and on the flower.

Both greetings were stamped in Basic Black and I finished the card off with some gold accents, the ribbon and the flower middle.

Bloomin' Heart Butterfly

This card is one of the cards my Be a Big Shot at Home Class made last month. I offer this series of classes twice a year and they run four months. Each month for four months the participants pay a class fee and I snail mail them a package of supplies and email the pictures and instructions. They assemble the projects in the comfort of their homes at their convenience. At the end of the four months, each participant places a host order with me and I give them a $150 gift certificate. Yep, a $150 gift certificate!! My next round starts in May, let me know if you would like to participate.

Perfect_pairings_butterfly

This project spotlights the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit and the Bold Butterfly Framelits and I used them together!!  I first die cut a heart out of Rose Red card stock and then ran it through the Big Shot again using the open butterfly included with the Bold Butterfly Thinlits.  I glued the heart/butterfly to another solid butterfly for this look.  Cool Right!!!!!

Perfect_pairings_butterfly_close
I die cut one of of each size flower (both included in the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits) and added them to the butterfly.  I painted them with Wink of Stella in Clear and then added a Pearl Basic Jewel.  I used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder on the label behind the butterfly.  My greeting is from the Perfect Pairings Sale-a-bration stamp set.  There are lots of items for you to choose from when you shop with me in March.  Check them out!  SALE-A-BRATION ITEMS

Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper

Shine_on2Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper. Pick a pack of patterned paper! So many patterns, so many colors, so many uses. Each sheet is double sided for double the creative options. Kraft paper with colored designs on one side and kraft paper with silver foil designs on the other.

This fun card started with this pattern in the pack and I went from there.  My greeting is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set. I added some ribbons and a die cut flower from the Rose Garden Thinlits.

Sunburst_sayings_watermelon

I added some some 1/8" Gold Ribbon and a bow and flagged the end of a strip of the Watermelon Wonder 1" Satin Ribbon so my die cut flower had somewhere to rest.

Sunburst_sayings_watermelon_closepgThe die cut flower is included in the Rose Garden Thinlits set and I added a 1/2" circle of Gold Foil under it.  It is layered on a couple of circles and a 1-3/4" Scallop Circle.

Super Cute Easter Lamb

Have you seen the adorable Easter Lamb single stamp on page 24 of the Occasions Catalog.  It is too cute.  Scroll down to find the measurements as well as the instructions for creating this Easter Lamb card.

Easter_lamb

Measurements:
Wisteria Wonder Card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
Pink Pirouette Card stock 5 1/4 x 4
Thick Whisper White Card stock 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 for lamb, scrap for greeting
6" pieces of all ribbons plus two 1-1/2" pieces of the Silver ribbon to hang the greeting

Instructions:
TIP: If you plan to use the greeting separate from the lamb, I suggest cutting them apart before you mount the stamp and put the greeting on one of the flat sides on the wood block. If you don't separate them, you will need to use some scotch tape or a post-it note to mask the images.
1. Ink the lamb with the Basic Black ink and stamp it onto the large white layer, crop this with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and trim 3/8" off the bottom with your scissors or your Stampin' Trimmer. Color the lamb with the Pink Pirouette stamp pad and a Blender Pen and then go over it with the While Chalk Marker to soften the look.
2. Run the Pink Pirouette layer through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot TEIF and then wrap a 6" piece of the Wisteria Wonder Seam binding around this layer securing it to the back.
3. Add the lamb piece with Stampin' Dimensionals and then wrap 6" pieces of the organza and skinny silver ribbons around the card over the lamb as shown and secure to the back.
4. Adhere this layer to the main card base.
5. Stamp Greeting on scrap of white and die cut it with the coordinating framelit.
6. Add 1-1/2" strips of Silver ribbon as shown using Glue Dots and cover the point where they meet with a large White Perfect Accent.
7. Add a few more White Perfect Accents where shown to finish the card.

Fun with the Botanical Builders Framelits

Playing with my Botanical Builders Framelits and some fun colors.  I started with the Daffodil Delight dot pattern from the Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper and Basic Black but needed to add another color.  I looked through my cardstock and decided that Rich Razzleberry would be perfect.  I love how this turned out.

This card is one of the cards my Be a Big Shot at Home Class will be making this month.  I offer this series of classes twice a year and they run four months.  Each month for four months the participants pay a $49.95 class fee and I snail mail them a package of supplies and email the pictures and instructions.  They assemble the projects in the comfort of their homes at their convenience.  At the end of the four months, each participant places a host order with me and I give them a $150 gift certificate. Yep, a $150 gift certificate!!  My next round starts in May, let me know if you would like to participate.

BotanicalsMy Basic Black scalloped divider strip is done by adding the Tiny Wave Blade to the Rotary Addition and the Stampin' Trimmer. My tiny glitter flower middles are done by placing a strip of our Gold Metallics Glitter Tape on a piece of copy paper and punching circles with the Owl Builder Punch and the Cupcake Builder Punch.  I added the glitter middles to the flowers with Glue Dots.
