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!!

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!

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.

Bright birthday 

FJUD3792

I have seen a lot of cards using this super fun Happy Birthday Framelit!  I was trying for a multi layer for height only, but by accident it moved.  I love how it’s offset and really pops off the paper!

I will admit, when I first saw Lemon Lime Twist I wasn’t too sure about it.  But I have grown to love it! It just adds fun, pop, and a touch of whimsy to cards! I wanted a fun background, so I used the two circles from the Eastern Beauty Stamp set!

I then added some balloons to make it more festive!  I cut out 1 Basic Black sentiments and 3 Lemon Lime Twist.  All of the Lemon Lime Twist I glued together with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. (TIP: act like you are writing when you apply the glue-and I used the Silicone Mat to keep the glue off of my surface). Then I applied glue to the Basic Black and off set the letters to create the pop!  I used dimensionals for the balloons and behind the Whisper White piece.

Happy Stampin’!

Elegant and Oh, So Eclectic 

I won the Oh, So Eclectic set at On Stage in April.  I finally got to play with the set and the coordinating dies this week!  I love the geometric shapes that one die cuts out! This card is for this month’s stamp club!

I first cut the flowers out with the two dies (one for the detail and the outline to cut it out) that nestle together nicely!  (figured the nestle part out the 2nd time) Next, I used the matching ink color to stamp the watercolor image to match the flower cut outs.  I did use Wink of Stella on the centers.  Then I used the Lemon Lime Twist to add that pop of color!

I added some texture with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder!  These are so great for vivid detail!  I finished off the card with Silver Foil behind the geometric pattern and a sentiment.

Crafting Forever Fun

QEVA5281

Crafting Forever is such a fun set!  All of the attendees of Center Stage were presented this set in April at our dinner.  There are great pictures of scissors, brushes, a stamp, and the cute pens above!  There is even a Stampin’ Up! Copyright stamp in there so you can sell your creations while complying with the Angel Policy.

I cut the card stock just a hair taller than the pens.  The stamp has 3 pens lined up-so I just stamped them side by side.  I did make the paper longer so I could cut off the ends that weren’t straight.

I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class this month!  I love how it turned out!

I just got my box of goodies and the paste was in the box!  I can’t wait to try it out!

Quilted Wood Words

VDOG5076

I was cruising through Pinterest (shocked, I know) and stumbled across a similar card.  I changed up the colors completely and made the main quilt area my own. I was feeling the upcoming holidays and wanted to use a Patriotic color scheme. I LOVE how it turned out!  This will be a club card for June!

I first stamped the rooster, heart, and star with color on color.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Dapper Denim, and Very Vanilla with Crumb Cake.  Then I used the smallest Stitched Shape square to cut out each one.

TIP: When lining up rows and columns, start with the middle first and work around until you have it even.  To get the mat dimension, I measured the squares when they were on my workspace and added 1/4″.  I wanted extra on the bottom so I could use the space for the sentiment.

It’s hard to see, but there is a strip of the new 6″ x 6″ Wood Textures paper pack!  I then used the 1/4″ Copper Trim and frayed the ends. Then I used the Label Me Pretty stamp set with the coordinating Pretty Label punch.  We are soooo close to being able to order from the NEW catalog!  Do you need one?  Do you need a demonstrator?  I am your gal!  I also have a great team too!  Check out the swaps that we did at our last meeting!
