Love this adorable chick from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set.  I stamped it onto one of the yellow sheets in the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series paper and snipped it out.  I did not keep the feet or little feathers that stick out.  I also stamped the same image on my Whisper White label die cut, colored the feet and then glued the yellow chick over it.   The Perfectly Artistic Paper gives the look of a watercolor wash. :-)

The greeting comes from the Crazy About You stamp set.  You can make a TON of phrases with this set and just because i am so awesome, here is a printable list for you. :-)  Click the picture to open the file for printing or click HERE to download it.

Crazy_about_you_list

I added a strip of DSP from the Schoolhouse DSP pack, a strip of the Gold Glitter Tapeand a strip of the Mint Macaron diagonal stripe Washi Tape from the It's My Party Washi Tape set.  The final touch is two Mint Macaron Enamel Dots up in the left corner.

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.

Glitter_tapeDuring Sale-a-bration, you can choose the Metallics Glitter Tape FREE when you place a $50 order in my store.

Control Freaks February 2016 Blog tour

Freaks_introWelcome to the February 2016 Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! We are so excited to have you join us today.

Our theme is anything Sale-a-bration so get ready to be wowed!  Our tour features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers. You may have just come from the blog of the incredibly talented, Cindy Elam  you may be one of my blog stalkers or you may have just stumbled here…however you got here, you’ll be very glad you did!  Be sure to take the whole tour! 

Our tour is all about Sale-a-bration! When you place a $50 order during Sale-a-bration, you earn FREEBIES from the Sale-a-bration Brochure or the recently introduced Sale-a-bration Flyer.  I chose to use one of the newly added FREE items called Pedal Pusher (set comes in photopolymer item #141312).  I couldn't wait to ink up this new set.  This set was added to the Sale-a-bration choices  a few days ago.  As a demonstrator, I can order things a bit early so I have had my new stuff for a couple of weeks, yay me!

Pedal_pusher_sun
I started by adding a strip of the NEW Metallics Glitter Tape (item 141020), another recently added Sale-a-bration choice, to the bottom of my main layer.  The bicycle was stamped in our Archival Basic Black so I could color it in with a couple of my Stampin' Write Markers.  I punched a couple of clouds using the Tree Builder Punch and sponged a bit of Pool Party Ink around the edges to make them pop a bit.  The sun was created by using the negative image from a 1" Circle Punch, a sponge dauber and So Saffron Ink.

Pedal_pusherSupplies: Pedal Pusher stamp set 141312P (Earn FREE during Sale-a-bration), Happy Home stamp set 140500W or 140503C, Thick Whisper White Cardstock 140272, Whisper White Cardstock 100730, Pool Party Cardstock 122924, Pool Party Ink Pad 126982, Archival Basic Black Ink Pad 140931, Subtles Stampin' Write Markers (So Saffron, Pool Party) 131263, So Saffron Pad 126957, Pool Party Pad 126982, 1" Circle Punch 119868,  Tree Builder Punch 138295, Sponge Daubers 133773, Metallics Glitter Tape 141020 (Earn FREE during Sale-a-bration).

My second project uses the Flowering Fields Sale-a-bration stamp set.  I again inked the images with our Archival Basic Black pad so I could color the flowers with my Stampin' Write Markers.

Flowering_fields_freaks
A layer of Kraft Corrugated Paper was used to add some interest and dimension to the card and the strip of Pool Party Glitter Ribbon adds to the sparkle.  The easiest way to add this ribbon is by first running a layer of Tear & Tape Adhesive across your cardstock, remove the paper backing and then gently press the ribbon into place.  Super easy and no mess.
I also used a couple of our corner punches for the detail in the top right corner and then I added my most used embellishment, the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Flowering_fieldsSupplies: Flowering Fields 141300W or 141303C (Earn FREE during Sale-a-bration), Grateful Bunch stamp set 140691P, Pool Party Cardstock 122924, Calypso Coral Carstock 122925, Whisper White Carstock 100730, Corrugated Paper 138317, Archival Basic Black Pad 140931, Subtles Stampin' Write Markers (So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Calypso Coral) 131263, Brights Stampin' Write Markers (Bermuda Bay) 131259, Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon 140561, Tear & Tape Adhesive 138995, Curvy Corner Trio Punch 139683, Rhinestone Basic Jewels 119246, Project Life Corner Punch 135346

That does it for me, please come back and visit me again, I enjoy sharing my love of paper crafting with you!!  Your next stop on the tour is the blog of one of my bestest Stampin' Friends, Kelly Acheson, I know you will love what she has to share.

More Pedal Pusher!

Here are a couple more cards I made with one of the upcoming Sale-a-bration addition called Pedal Pusher.

Pedal_pusher_bermuda_2

The striped layer was done with our Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks.  I used the the striped mask, a Sponge Dauber and Bermuda Bay Ink to create the diagonal lines.

Pedal_pusher_bermuda_mask

The bicycle was stamped in Basic Black and then I colored it with a Pool Party Stampin' Write Marker.  It looks like I used two different colors of markers but I just went over the seats and hand grips a few more times with the same color to darken it.

 

Pedal_pusher_bermuda_close

I also used the updated Essentials Paper Piercing Templates just below the Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon.

NEW - Sale-a-bration item - Pedal Pusher

Starting Tuesday, February, 16th, Stampin' Up! will be adding three fabulous new choices to the Sale-a-bration line.  We are adding two stamp sets, Pedal Pusher and Party Pants and the coolest tape ever...the Metallics Glitter Tape!!!

New_choices
I have been playing around with these new goodies and here is one of the projects I created.  It uses the Pedal Pusher stamp set and I am in love with this adorable two seater bike!


Pedal_pusher_mint
I stamped the bike in Basic Black just off the left side, added the basket and some butterflies (the butterflies are from the In the Meadow stamp set).  I colored the bike with a combination of Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo.  My greeting is from the other NEW Sale-a-bration stamp set, Party Pants.

A skinny strip of Designer Series Paper from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack adds the perfect accent to the edge of my main layer.  I adhered this layer to a layer of Pink Pirouette and offset it a bit when I added it to my main card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.  My final touch was to wrap the card with the Basic Black/Mint Macaron Baker's Twine and tie it in a bow.

Hello Wildflower Fields

For this card, I paired a couple of Sale-a-bration items with the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.  My two Sale-a-bration items are the Wildflower Flower Fields Designer Series Paper and the Hello stamp set.  The Hello stamp set is one of the three items that are only available through February 15th.

Limited_edition_1

I die cut the small flower out of Calypso Coral using the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.  I cropped a 1/2" circle from Gold Foil Sheets and added to the back of the flower to accent the flower middle and finished it with a Black Candy Dot.

Hello_wildflower_fields_rosegarden

Layered the flower with some circles and a trimmed a section 1-1/4" White Jute Ribbon to 1" and wrapped it around the layers. I alwasy use our Thick Whisper White Cardstock for card bases as I really like the extra weight of this cardstock.  The greeting is stamped on a 1/2" strip of white cardstock and the ends are flagged with my Paper Snips.

Loving the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper!

Wildflower_fields_allHave you seen the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper in the Sale-a-bration Brochure?  It is Ah-mazing!!  The colors and patterns just make my heart go pitter patter.  I love it!!

I tend to be a hoarder of DSP but not this stuff, it was FREE and I can get more!!  I actually used an entire layer on this card plus a bit more.  It is similar to THIS CARD but I used a different pattern.

I am lovin' Old Olive paired with Blackberry Bliss, so rich and yummy and I was thrilled to find Old Olive Sequins in my stash of embellishments!!  The Brights Sequin Assortment includes round, heart and star shaped sequins in Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red.

Perfect_pairings_wildflower_blackberryThe small Blackberry Bliss flowers on my card come from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits.  There are two sizes and they add the perfect touch.

Perfect_pairings_wildflower_blackberry_close Did you notice the scallop trim peeking out from behind striped layer? 
I created this with the Rotary Addition for my Stampin' Trimmer.  Transform your Stampin' Trimmer into a rotary trimmer. Simply swap in this rotary track and flip your cutting mat. Now you can cut decorative edges as well as straight cuts just by changing the blades.
I used the Small Scallop Blade for this card.  You can see the Tiny Wave Blade in action on my T-SHIRT CARD.

My greeting is from another Sale-a-bration item, this stamp set is called Perfect Pairings.  I cropped the greeting with the Extra Large Oval Punch.

Rose Garden in Watermelon

Love this card!!  I have been on a Watermelon Wonder kick for the past week and this is the second card I have done using it.  I posted THIS CARD yesterday and it also uses Watermelon Wonder.

Today's card also pairs Watermelon Wonder with Basic Black so the colors just jump out at you. 

I am using the Rose Wonder Bundle which includes the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and the Rose Garden Thinlits.  Ordering Bundles saves you 15%!!
Rose Wonder Photopolymer Bundle [140804]

I have the measurements and instructions below the photo.  I did use Black Stampin' Emboss Powder on the greeting to give it a bit of dimension.

Rose_wonder_bundle_watermelon_pear
Measurements:
138334 Watermelon Wonder 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, 5 x 4-1/4 for rose die cut, scrap for greeting
131201 Pear Pizzazz 5 x 4-1/4 for rose die cut
121045 Basic Black 4 x 5-1/4

Instructions:
1. Run the Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz layers through the Big Shot Machine using the Magnetic Platform and Precision Base Plate.

Going Global Sunburst

Here's a fun card I created with the Sunburst Thinlits. I cut the Sunburst shape out of the black diagonal stripe pattern found in the Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.

Incolor_washiI also created a tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and lined it with the 2015-2017 In Color Washi Tape found on page 51 of the Occasions Catalog.  This Washi Tape Collection can be purchased with Stampin' Rewards.

My greeting is from the NEW Going global stamp set and I cropped the image with the Sweetheart Punch.  I also cropped a 2-1/2" and a 1-1/2" circle from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and added them as layers for some sparkle.
