Simply Tranquil Tulips

Oh my! We can all order from the catalog now!!! Look at this beautiful hostess set that you can earn by booking a party or ordering $150 or more! Tranquil Tulips! I had to get it on the ore order. I usually wait with the hostess sets-but this one was a must have-now! ūüėč

I made this card for this Sunday’s New Catalog ¬†Open House! I did stamp off the Real Red ink before stamping on my paper. I paired it with Wild Wasabi leaves and Basic Black for the pistils. The sentiment is from Eastern Palace, I just straightened the word before stamping. I wanted some texture with out adding too much-so I used the Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder with Real Red.

Want to earn this set?  This month you can get extra host dollars with a party of $350 or more!  I have dates available!

Basket Bunch Bunny

IMG_1844

The Basket Bunch stamp set is so much fun!  I first created this cute Easter Basket with the chocolate bunny!  Then I thought it would be nice to let my club girls have a choice of which card to make.  So, I created the basket of daffodils!

On the bunny card: I used Versa Mark and Clear Embossing Powder to make it look like they had been stamped.  I think the bunny looks like a chocolate bunny this way! And the sentiment is way too cute!

IMG_1845

I chose the Succulent Garden DSP because the gingham paper just screamed out Easter/Spring colors!!¬† I love how the basket has texture when you add the two layers together too! I used my paper piercer to fray the Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

Here is the daffodil card:

IMG_1846

I chose not to put a handle on this one.  I adore daffodils, so this card just makes me happy!  And you know I added Wink of Stella to the petals!!

Simply Wonderful Roses

Do you ever start a card/project, and it doesn’t go as planned?¬† I do all the time.¬† In fact, I have an entire draw full of “potential” cards! I finally used this card base that has been in my stash! It’s so easy and quick to make!¬† I am making it for a SWAP for our upcoming ON Stage local event in April!¬† (hint: it’s also¬†a Try it Night card!)

First I started with Smoky Slate ink and stamped the big rose stamp randomly on Smoky Slate cardstock.  Then I cut out the leaves with Basic Black.

RTXL7968

I used Black Momento ink and the Rose Garden Thinlits to cut out the sentiment.  I love how the stamp set has a frame to make the die piece pop! A little bling and ribbon. Done!

Vintage Carousel

final30

Cupcake Carousel is such a fun and retro/vintage set!¬† I love this whole suite of goodies!!¬† The 6×6 paper stack, the stamp set, the colors, and¬†¬†the embellishment set are just yummy!

This card was really simple to make, but packs a WOW punch! I started off by stamping the carousel horse with Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla.¬† I used a Blender Pen to erase the pennants on his reigns.¬† I then colored with Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, So Saffron, Soft Sky, and Gold Wink of Stella for the pole. To color his tail and mane, I just used the blender pen to blend the Early Espresso into the Very Vanilla areas. I used the Stitched Framelits-THESE ARE A MUST HAVE- to cut out the horse.¬† I did flick some Early Espresso onto the card by using a strip of glue dot paper.¬† You just need to add your ink to the paper, add water, and flick with your finger from behind the paper. Please practice first on scratch paper!¬† I then stamped the circus tent in Bermuda Bay on Bermuda Bay card stock. To balance the side-I used the 6×6 paper as an accent. Speaking of accents: you have to check out the fun tassels, bows, and other goodies in the embellishment kit!¬† I used 2 glue dots to adhere the tassel.¬† I did use the ribbon that comes in the kit to tie a bow through the loop first.

final29

I finished off by using the Tin of Cards sentiment on Calypso Coral.  What a fun card!!

Sad news on the Sale a Bration items: the Card Tin is sold out.  But there are still plenty of other great items you can earn with every $50 spent!  But hurry, March 31st is the last day!

Simply Irresistibly Floral

final22

I have no idea why I haven’t played with¬†Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP¬†paper before!!¬† I wanted a simple card for the girls at the Cancer Support Community Center, and this was the perfect one!¬† So elegant, simple, and stunning!

I used the Flirty Flamingo ink pad and the Sponge Brayers to ink up the paper.  I love that you can add as much as you want or as little as you want.  I then used a very lightly damp paper towel to take off the ink from the glossy images. Plus this helped blend the ink on the paper too.

final28

Then a quick strip of Whisper White cardstock with your choice of sentiment stamped with Memento Black ink off to the side. Then I ran the small flower from the Flourish Thinlits with Basic Black cardstock. To finish it off, I put some bling onto the berries of the flower!

Now, I am off to find more fun ways to play with this paper!

Don’t forget about the Creative Kit To Go!¬† Order is due March 18th-new customers get a free gift from me! If you refer a new person, I will give you a gift too!

Hugs,
