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

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.

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.

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.

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.
