A Little Note with a Butterfly Gala and Incredible Like You Mash Up

A Little Note with a Butterfly Gala and Incredible Like You Mash Up

Simple note cards are sometimes the best note card. I make them up ahead of time so that when I need one I have one. These note cards are using the Butterfly Gala stamp set and the Incredible Like You stamp set. They make for the perfect pairing!

In my first color combo I am using Tranquil Tide with Lemon Lime Twist. I used my Sponge Dauber to create the two tone colors and boy are they gorgeous together. These two in-colors are retiring in less then a week so if you love it like I do, get them NOW….before it’s too late. Stampin’ Up! says that when they’re gone, they are gone. I finished off with basic rhinestones.

In my next color combo I went a little softer using Blushing Bride and Grey Granite. I also grabbed a Thank You out of Thankful Thoughts stamp set (also retiring!) I used basic pearls to embellish this card.

My third card option is Poppy Parade and Mango Melody. I love how rich this card is. I am a bold color lover and this is dynamite. Probably my favorite of the three, this card is hard to part with.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you love the color combos and the mashup pairing of these two stamp sets. Hurry, and get the retiring products while you can. I am always sad to say goodbye but there are so many amazing offerings in our new catalog that it makes me happy!

See you soon!

So Glad We’re Friends ~ Using Incredible Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set

So Glad We’re Friends ~ Using Incredible Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set

I find ideas everywhere. I saw this card on Instagram as a banner from one demonstrator to another and I fell in-love with the bold, bright, glittery idea I had to make it into a card.

Recipe for my card:

I grabbed some left over scraps of black and white DSP for the background on both sides. I tried making my own but the Tuxedo black was so juicy it made a black mess everywhere and that was not something I could send. So scraps were my 2nd and best choice.

I am using a half sheet of Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base, but in a hot dog fold, down the middle at 4.25″ x 11″.

I also used a couple long scraps about 1/2″ wide of Daffodil Delight and placed it on both sides of my banner, which was made out of regular weight Whisper White. NOW I AM READY TO DECORATE!

I stamped my flowers in Melon Mambo, stamping off for that signature two toned look. My leaves are in Coastal Cabana. I embellished the card with Black Metallic Thread, Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, Basic Pearls, and Pearlized Doilies. (which are my favorite!!)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying your long weekend and that you get creative. Sadly, this stamp set will not be carrying on into the next catalog. If you want it, I suggest you get it NOW before it is too late. Stamps are available until they run out OR BEFORE June 3rd at Midnight, Mountain Time.

I’ll be seeing you soon!

God Is Love Cards ~ Using Hold Onto Hope Stamp Set

God Is Love Cards ~ Using Hold Onto Hope Stamp Set

These cards are beautiful and could be changed up to any sentiment for any occasion. I used the Hold Onto Hope Stamp set to create these cards and they are stunning!

I held a product based class focusing on this stamp set and coordinating framelits and these cards were one of the projects featured. I help my class in April, close to Easter, and these cards are perfect for anyone spiritual. Sometimes we need to be reminded that God is Love.

Pacific Point is bright and cheery, paired with the matching DSP (designer series paper). I used the tiniest flower and flower filler from Everyday Jars and Frosted Bouquet.

I used a large oval from the Stitched Shaped Framelits to create my wreath and adhered it with mini dimensionals.

Last but not least I made a cute bow out of the 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon in Whisper White.

The other colors featured are: Garden Green and Highland Heather. The flowers on the Garden Green card are Poppy Parade.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you love these cute cards as much as I do. I am so pleased that both the Hold Onto Hope stamp set and coordinating framelits, Cross of Hope, are continuing on into the next annual catalog!

Bold Pop of Petals in Night of Navy and Lovely Lipstick

Bold Pop of Petals in Night of Navy and Lovely Lipstick

This card is not my original idea but I loved it so much I had to recreate it. It is simple enough for a beginner stamper but stunning enough for an avid stamper. I liked it so much, I chose it as one of my cards for my Creative Card Class.

Recipe for my Card:

Start with half a sheet of Night of Navy scored down the middle at 4.25″. You also need two pieces of 4″ x 5.25″ of Lovely Lipstick for the mat on the inside and the outside. You need two pieces of Whisper White measuring 3.75 x 5″ for your stamping.

Stamp as you feel led using the Pop of Petals stamp set and coordinating four petal punch. Adhere all together and don’t forget the envelope!

Other colors I coordinated with:

I hope you love this card as much as I do! Pop of Petals and the Four Petal Punch are carrying over to our new catalog which goes live on June 4th. Don’t wait! Buy it today and save 10% buying it as a bundle.

Thanks for stopping by!

April Thank You’s with Pop of Petals

April Thank You’s with Pop of Petals

When you choose to shop with me, I always send a thank you and if you are local I make a tiny gift to go along with it. These are for my April customers, shown here in Flirty Flamingo.

For my cards I used coordinating Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper and a monochromatic butterfly from the Pop of Petals stamp set bundle.

My Card Recipe:

I cut my Flirty Flamingo cardstock in half at 4.25″ down the long side (a hot dog fold) and then I fold it in half again. My card measures 4.25″ x 5.5″. However, instead of having a vertical card I wanted a horizontal card and turned it side ways. I then placed it carefully in my paper trimmer and cut to the score line at 3″. I adhered the DSP and then I took my 1″ circle die and lined it up where I wanted the dip to be in the card. I adhered it with a post it and ran it through my die cutting machine.

For my inside panel I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock measured at 4″ x 5.25″.

Next, I used my four petal punch and cut out my butterfly, adhering it in the dip of my card. Last, but not least, I stamped the antennas on the butterfly and I stamped the ‘Thank You’ from Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set in matching Flirty Flamingo.

Next, I made a couple cute boxes for my customers using the Flirty Flamingo cardstock and coordinating DSP (just like my cards!).

My recipe for the Box:

  1. Cut your cardstock to: 6-7/8″ x 5-1/2″
  2. On the Long Side score it at: 3/4″, 1-3/8″, 2-3/4″, 4-1/8″, 5-1/2″, and 6-1/8″
  3. On the Short Side score it at: 1-3/8 and at 4-1/8″

Cut your DSP pieces at: 1) 2-1/2″ x 1-1/8″ (x 2) and 2) 1-1/8″ x 1-3/16″ (x 2)

I used liquid multipurpose glue and sealed the sides. Choose your front from your back and decorate as you desire. I added white cotton ribbon and white thread to close my box together. It easy holds some cute little Hershey kisses.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ve loved these gift ideas and as much as my customers do. Another side note: When I send them I write my thoughts on a post it on the inside. That way if they want to re gift my card and send it on, it allows for it. I love that!!!

See you soon!

Pop of Color Using Pop Of Petals Bundle

Pop of Color Using Pop Of Petals Bundle

I love the way this card came together and although I made it in three color options I love them all the same equally.

Here is the Recipe for my card:

I start with a 1/2 sheet of Thick Whisper White and fold it in half again, making a standard card size of 4.25″ x 5.5″.

I take another piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and emboss it using my die cutting machine and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder . I adhere that flat onto my card base and continue on.

I made a couple flag pieces using Basic Black Cardstock and coordinating cardstock (color of my choosing). I make the banner with my
Banner Triple Punch . My flags measure about 3.5″ x 3/4″.

I use the 1.5″ stitched circle die cut and run it through my die cutting machine on Whisper White. I wanted to stamp some black stripes onto my card and liked the water from the Fabulous Flamingo Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used my Black Momento ink to stamp vertically all over my circle.

Next, I took another scrap of Whisper White cardstock and stamped three petals. I did one in the color of my choice (that matched my flag strip) and two stamped in Black Momento. I then punched them out and curled them with my Bone Folder.

I also needed some leaves. I decided on my Leaf Punch and after punching them out in Basic Black cardstock I used my bone folder again and gave them some dimension.

I knew I wanted a sentiment on my card and I had a perfect one to use. I chose the “that was AWESOME” sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo Photopolymer Stamp set. My daughter was voted Student of the Month for her first time ever (a goal we had been working hard on!) and she deserved a card from her parents reminding her how proud we are of her. It was quite the week.

Once I had all my pieces ready, I assembled my cards very quickly! I used glue dots, dimensionals and snail to adhere the different pieces to my liking. I finished the cards off with Basic Rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you again, soon!
