VIDEO - 40 Cards using the Balloon Adventures Bundle

I have a video for you today where I show you 40 cards that use the Balloon Adventures Bundle.  I do a little talking about each one so it isn't a short video. :-) 

All the cards use the Balloon Adventures Bundle and you can click on the items to purchase them in my store.

There is a nice selection of items and I think that most of the stamp set images and the dies are used on at least one card. This was a fun video to shoot as I got to really look at each card and I learned some really cool things.

Balloon Pop Up Wiper Card, how much fun does this sound?  It is tons of fun and super easy too.  Check out my video to see how much fun this interactive card is.  It is also simple to create a Wiper Card so that makes it even more fun!  AND when you add pop up balloons in Glimmer Paper, it's even better!!  Here's the first Wiper Card I made.  I made it for a swap and the gals loved it.
This first picture is of it closed.  It's cute but nothing special.....scroll down to the next photo.

Wiper_front
Here it is with the balloons coming out of the top.  The card acts like windshield wipers.  up, down, up, down, up, down, they are so so cool!!!
Wiper_front_open
Here's a closeup of the balloons, I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and cropped balloons from Watermelon Wonder (Heads up, this is one of the colors that will be retiring at the end of May with the current catalog.), Pool Party and coordinating bows, one out of Peekaboo Peach.
Wiper_balloons

The polka dot papers are from the 2015-2017 and 2016-2018 In Color Paper Stacks and check out the little strip of Pool Party in the center section.  I stamped it a few times with the Happy Birthday stamp in the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

VIDEO - Pocket Full of Tools - Nailed It Bundle

Working on some ideas for some swaps for this bundle and here is one I came up with.  This is also one of the projects that my Be a Big Shot at Home gals received supplies for in their February packets.  It uses the Nailed It Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  This is such a cool set, I love all the little tools and of course, who doesn't love coordinating dies!!!

My card is a Pocket Full of Tools and I have a video below showing you how I made it.  I used Silver Foil Sheets with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and it is so shiny!

Melon Mambo Z-fold Valentine Card

Wanted to make a cool Valentine for my husband and I really wanted to use Melon Mambo, not because it's his favorite color but because, I hadn't used it in a while and I love it!!!!

I decide to make him a Z-Fold Card because I'm pretty sure he will think it's really cool. :-)
Below is the card closed, I used a lot of fun products on this card, starting with the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape.  I added it in three places -
*To separate the punched hearts border from the focal point (I added the Washi Tape to a strip of Whisper White before I added it to the layer)
*On the right edge of the inside layer
*A different pattern on the right edge of the top layer
I also used the edgelit, the small envelope, the tiny envelope liner, the small note card in the envelope and the heart pattern that fits on the top of the note card.  all of these pieces can be found in the Love Notes Framelits Dies.

Sending_love_zfold

Here's a closeup of the heart border and the envelope.  The Confetti Hearts Border Punch was used on the left side of the top layer and I also used the punch on a scrap of Basic Black so I could inlay a few of the black hearts to really make the border pop.  I chose one of the patterns in the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper for the small envelope and die cut a tiny envelope liner from Whisper White to hide the reverse side of this paper as it didn't really fit my theme.
Sending_love_zfold_close
And here is the inside layer, I stamped images from the Sealed with Love stamp set in both Melon Mambo and Memento Tuxedo Black.
Sending_love_zfold_open
A Z-Fold Card is super easy, start with a 4-1/4 x 11 piece of card stock and score it at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2.  Fold the card in half and then fold it back on itself.  Add a layer that measures 3-1/2 x 5 and you are done. Decorate and embellish as desired.

Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits and Colored Vellum

I have seen projects that die cut the group of dragonflies from one color and adhere them into the negative space cut from another color or pattern. I thought some colored Vellum Cardstock under the die cuts might look cool so I gave it a try and here is the result.
Dragonfly_vellum_close
I think it looks pretty cool, don't you?  I used Sponge Daubers and my Ink Pads to add some color to the vellum. 
From the top - Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo.
I positioned the vellum where I wanted it under the Whisper White layer and attached it to the backside.  I then added the dragonfly group cut from Basic Black cardstock. 

Dragonfly_vellum_close1Note that I did keep some of the small Whisper White pieces and added them in after I had the black die cut in place, kind of like a puzzle. :-)
I also used my Project Life Journaling Pen to create the flight trails for the dragonflies.  A strip of Rich Razzleberry Designer Series Paper and a piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon to hide the seam.  To finish it off, I added circle sequins from the Brights Sequin Assortment.

Technique - Brayered Designer Series Paper

This is such a simple technique, I wish I would have thought of it sooner!  I used one of the patterns from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack and I colored it with my Sponge Brayer and my Pink Pirouette Ink Pad.

I used this technique on one of the bags that came in my Paper Pumpkin Kit, check it out HERE.

Sending_love_brayered_dsp_group

The difference can be seen in this photo, just adding some color to the paper makes it look completely different.  I also noticed that the red parts of the paper did not seem to change with the addition of the ink.
Sending_love_brayered_dsp_compare

I paired this paper with the Sending Love Bundle to create this fun Valentine's Day card. I added a layer die cut with the heart edgelit, added a focal point, some hearts and an arrow.

Measurements:
Sending Love DSP - 3-5/8 x 5-1/4
Basic Black 4-1/8 - 5-7/16
Whisper White Thick 4-1/4 x 11

Alternate Paper Pumpkin Projects - January 2017

Had some time this weekend to play with my January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Adoring Arrows. While working with the cute white treat bags, I had a thought to color them, so I did!!!

Sponge_brayerYou can easily change the color of these bags by rolling a Sponge Brayer over your ink pad a number of times to pick up ink.  Roll back and forth over your project piece, roll over the pad to add more ink and repeat the process until you have the desired coverage.  Gently remove the ink from the gold hearts with a tissue.

I colored a couple of them and cut one up to make this birthday card.

I added some die cuts from the Balloon Pop Up Thinlits, the bow and the straight ribbon pieces.

Measurements:
Colored bag layer - 2" x 2-3/4"
Gold Foil Sheet - 2-3/16" x 2-15/16"
Whisper White - 3-3/4" x 5"
Gold Foil Sheets - 4" x 5-1/4"
Sweet Sugarplum - 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"

The greeting was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and then I stamped the tiny heart group a few times on the large Whisper Whie panel, covered them in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set them.

VIDEO - Valentine Matchbook Card

Today, I have a fun card for you that uses the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  This stack comes with 48 sheets of 6x6 papers.  There are eight double sided designs and you get six of each so you have plenty to create with!

I am also using the Sealed with Love Bundle to create the fun elements on the front of the card and for the stamping on the inside of the card.  Scroll down to see a video I made last year showing you how to create a Matchbook Card.

I sent kits to make this card to some of my downline members for a challenge over on our team Facebook Group.  They loved it!!!

I created the little envelope out of Vellum Cardstock and slipped the love note into it.  The small white bow was made with the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack.  I also added a small row of hearts from the stamp set in Pool Party.  The square is one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits and it is all mounted on one of our NEW Lace Doilies.

Here's the inside, just some simple stamping. :-)
