Stunning Sunflowers

Painted Harvest 1

When I saw the preview of the Holiday Catalog, the Painted Harvest just called my name! Of course it was first on my list when we could pre-order (one of the many perks of being a demo!) from the catalog this month!  I still want to play with color combinations-and I have seen some gorgeous ones on the blogosphere!

This one will be a card for my Sweet & Simple card class on Tuesday, August 29th! (if you are local, come join us!  Just RSVP 7pm-8:30pm)

To make this card, I used Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight for the two yellow colors.  This set is a 2 step stamp set that makes your cards pop!  I aimed for lining up the center with the 2nd stamp.  It doesn’t matter which one goes first. I then used Garden Green and the more water colored fern stamp to make the background.  Next, I followed up with Chocolate Chip for the center and used Wink of Stella (I really need help….) for the centers! I thought a textured background piece was perfect! So I chose the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder.  I added some distressing with a sponge and lightly brushed it across with Chocolate Chip ink.

Painted Harvest 2

The Painted Harvest come in a bundle option that includes a Leaf Punch.  It’s pretty darn cute to add a quick accent to your card!  To finish it off, I added some Linen Thread and the sentiment.  All done!

September 1st is the day customers can get this beautiful set!  Need a Holiday Catalog?  Let me know, I can drop one in the mail to you!

Cute little piggy!!

EWVG0672

Remember how I like to use the same layout?  Here is another card using the same layout as the previous post!!  I actually was trying to make a different card and it failed.  So I couldn’t waste this cute little pig!! So I just whipped up another birthday card!  You can never have too many of those!

I used the Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the outline stamp of the pig.  If you want to stamp and not include a sentiment attached to the stamp, then use a piece of scotch tape.  You just place it over the words, stamp as usual, and take off the tape before stamping on your card stock.  I then used an Aqua Painter and the top lid of the ink pad to color the image. ASTE7004

I thought the Wood Grain DSP paper pack would look perfect with this cutie!  I finally bought the Classic Label punch and I love how it looks!  And it’s quick too!

Graceful Rose Garden

final-4

A special friend and customer requested an in home party!  I haven’t done one in over a year!  She wanted to show her friends a fun fold-so this is what I came up with!  I fell in love with the Petal Garden Suite because of the beautiful rose stamp set, Graceful Garden, and the coordinating items!!

I first used a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock and scored at 4 1/2″ and 2 1/8″.  Then I folded and scored them in a valley-mountain fashion.  You have to get the Petal Garden DSP pack!! Just beautiful colors and patterns!! Next, I used the Garden Trellis embossing folder and the results are just elegant!

Graceful Garden 2

I used the Aqua Painter to color in the images to give it a soft colored look.  I finished it off with a sentiment from Wood Words and the new Classic Label punch! And you know if used Wink of Stella Clear on my flower, right?

Thank you for stopping by!!

Tuscan Grapes

Tuscan vineyard 1

I was playing around with the Tuscan Vineyards set last night and whipped this out in about 10 minutes!  Love it when I can do that!  I wanted a more vintage look so I used the new Post Script background stamp!  Love how it looks!

I just used a Blender Pen with ink pads to color in the grapes and the wine logo.  I have quite a few wine lovers that would love this card!!

Eclectic Card Box

PHKH9688

I love the Coffee Break suite! 

I still remember looking through this catalog in April and coming across this suite!  I shrieked loud enough that people down the hall in the hotel had to of heard me! I LOVE my Starbucks!!  So this was just a pleasant surprise-even the color combos!!

So this month’s club I wanted to make a card that was a little different.  An easel card fit the bill!  And they are so easy!  The Coffee Break suite has super cute framelits that can cut out cups, tops, beans, shapes, and cupcakes!  Plus a cute whipped cream (or poop emoji) shape too!  To make an easel card you start with a 11″x 4 1/4″ piece of cardstock.  Score at 5 1/2″ and fold like a normal tent card.  Then you will take the front and fold it back on it’s self and crease.  That will be the part to place your Tear & Tape.  Then decorate a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece to place on top of the folded back part with the tape.

coffee break tentIt will lay flat and look like a normal card until you prop it up on the pearl stoppers.  The inside of the card is hard to see since it’s Crumb Cake.

Here a top view and you can see the DSP strip peeking out.  I just love the beans!!

coffee break tent 3

And of course I had to use Wink of Stella clear for the whipped cream!!  I made a clear lid with the Window Sheets.  And the corrugated pieces are just to stinkin’ cute!!

Daisy Delight Addiction!

I am soooo happy that the Daisy Punch is back in stock!  This is by far my favorite items so far!  So easy to make quick cards like the one above!  I literally made this in 5 minutes flat!  I love to use the color combinations that they have in the Designer Series Paper designs!  I just flip over the pack and read the colors used!  To add more colors you can stamp off your inks for lighter shades of the ink pads!  Gives you more mileage on your ink and color choices!

final-11

I just stamped color on color (Wisteria Wonder) and punched out 2 daisies.  Used a couple glue dots to adhere together.  Then I used my bone folder to fluff the petals.  To create the fun fold, I cut the DSP paper to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Then I cut down the center with the Paper Trimmer (helpful because you control how far the blade cuts into your paper). Finally I folded the pieces back on themselves and placed some adhesive on the back to keep them flat.  Crease with a Bone Folder to help.  I finished it off with a Silver Faceted gem and took out my Calypso Coral marker to add the faux stitches.
