Lovin' the Hexagons

This was one of the cards I offered at my recent Card Buffet Class. It is a CASE of a card my friend BJ Peters shared a couple of weeks ago.

Hexagonsbuffet

Most of the Hexagons were punched from sheets in the I Am Me Designer Series Paper Pack using the NEW Hexagon Punch.  I did use the Six Sided Sampler Set to stamp a couple of the images in Tangerine Tango and So Saffron.

Did you know that you can purchase the Six Sided Sampler stamp set with the coordinating Hexagon Punch in a bundle and save 15%? 

Order the Six Sided Sampler Bundle in Clear #132724 
Order the Six Sided Sampler Bundle in Wood #132725 

Hexagonbuffet

The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (order it in Clear #126527 or Wood #132022) and was cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits and the NEW Big Shot Magnetic Platform.  The Magnetic Platform makes using Framelits so easy I am lovin' it!!!

Stamps: Six Sided Sampler, Itty Bitty Banners
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray, Whisper White, I Am Me Designer Series Paper
Ink: Tangerine Tango, So Saffron

Say Goodbye to Google Reader

Google
FYI - Google Reader is retiring on Monday so we will need to find a different reader for those blogs we love.  I have tried a couple of different readers and am going with www.bloglovin.com  

If you don’t use Google Reader as your reader then you’re fine! But if you do, I recommend switching to Bloglovin’.

Be sure to Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I have no clue why Google Reader is shutting down, but I have made the transition to Bloglovin’ to read up on the blogs I follow. It was actually super simple and literally took all of 3 minutes.

Go to www.bloglovin.com and create a Bloglovin’ account and in the process it asks if you want to import the blogs you read on Google Reader to your new Bloglovin’ account. Click the button to import and that’s it!


VIDEO - Hershey's Nugget Pouch on page 121

When I saw the little Hershey's Nugget Pouch on page 121 of the NEW 2013 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, I knew I had to learn to make it. 

It turned out so cute, I also included it as one of the four projects in my June Be a Big Shot at Home Class Packets!!

Pouchopen

Floralframespouch
I checked the Stampin' Supplies List and found that the designer used the Floral Frames Framelits Collection so I sat down to figure it out. 

I was successful so I created this video for you to help you make these adorable little pouches too!!

Outline & Sketch Alphabets meet Soho Subway DSP

OutlinealphabetGreat card using the ABC-123 Outline Alphabet & Numbers and ABC-123 Sketch Alphabet & Numbers sets. The letters were stamped over each so each letter has a dark outline and a colorful center.  Very cool sets to use together.  The letter "U" is layered on a few circle punches and finally on our NEW Artisan Label Punch and it is accented with one of the fun Cancy Dots and Brad Bases.

The background papers come from the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper package which is great for your masculine cards. Here is a shot of all the papers in that pack.

Easy Graduation Card

I found a baby card on Pinterest using this design and thought it would be perfect for a couple of Graduation Cards I needed last month.

Ouregumptionboth

The cards use the Pure Gumption set (order it in Clear #126317 or Wood #132067) and the main image piece is cut from our Oval Framelits (order them #129381).  Wondering the sizes of the Oval Framelits?  I happen to have that information for you. :-)

Ovals Collection-#129381
1-1/4 x 2-3/16
1-11/16 x 2-5/8
2-1/8 x 3-1/16
2-9/16 x 4-1/2
3 x 3-15/16
3-7/16 x 4-3/8

After I cut the oval with my Big Shot, I stamped the images and greeting.  I then placed it on my main card base where I wanted it and pierced around the oval with my Paper-Piercing Tool (order it #126189) and the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack (order it #129387). 
OccasionspiercingpackI added a few Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of my stamped piece and placed it inside the pierced oval.

Bright Sketched Birthday

I think this may be my daughter's bithday card this year, hard to believe she will be 12 years old later this month. :-)  It is hard to see in the picture but there is Dazzling Details all over the pink stamped images and a Basic Rhinestone on the cupcake.
