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.

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! 😋

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!

Simply Mediterranean Moments

img_1587

Mediterranean Moments is such a beautiful set that captures the landscape of the life in the Mediterranean!  I made this for my Try It night class-2 simple cards for a fee to get people to try out stamping cards!

I started off with Soft Suede ink for the street image leaving room for a sentiment at the bottom.  I then turned to the Moroccan DSP and Soft Suede card stock to make the side accent.  I used the edge of my scissors to carefully rough up the edge of the Soft Suede card stock.  I used Soft Suede ink and a sponge to distress the paper pieces for more depth.  The sentiment is stamped with Cajun Craze on Cajun Craze card stock.  It’s all finished with the Linen thread tied in a knot and frayed.

Birthday Candles

candle-card

Once you get past a certain age, my mom always would put 3 candles on the cake.  One for life, one for strength, and one for good luck for the next year.  So, I used her rule to make this card using Sweet Cupcake and the matching thinlits.

It is super quick since the dies cut out the candles and that it’s a 2-3 step stamping set!  I love purple-so I used Rich Razzleberry and the Blooms & Bliss DSP!  I started with randomly stamping the streamers and confetti with Sweet Sugarplum on the Sweet Sugarplum base.  I then used the Rich Razzleberry for the main part of the candle and Blushing Bride for the background color of the candles.  The flames I used Crushed Curry and then tipped the stamp with a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker!  Of course I used dimensionals!  I go through those like I go through Wink of Stella clear, Burlap ribbon, and Snail!

Stay tuned for pictures of all my craft show items!  I have been feverishly making these for our new high school!  They have a Holiday Cheer Market from 8am-12pm this Saturday, December 10th!

Celebrating a wonderful woman

e6417730-c0ed-4996-a408-4c65b9b98ed9

I needed a quick card for a special person in our lives!  My stepmother!  She turns 70 today, but my father planned over a month ago for us all to surprise her with a nice dinner at III Forks!  Her daughter, son-in-law, grandkids, sister, brother-in-law, cousins, Pete, and myself were all waiting in a private room.  Some traveled from Austin, TX and the daughter with her family had just flown in from Boston that evening! It was a true surprise and she was just flabbergasted! She is special to me because she has such a giving heart.  And after my last 5 months kicking breast cancer, I really couldn’t have done it with out her.  It was like my mom from heaven was channeling through her.  We are definitely a lot closer now!

The card was a color combo that I enjoy a lot!  Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, and Sweet Sugarplum.  I used the Number of Years stamp set and matching Framelits to complete the card.  And what card wouldn’t be super special with out Wink of Stella Clear?

Here is her super yummy cake and a picture of me and my hubby!  We can clean up nice once and a while!  Plus, we had a date night!  A very rare occurrence!  We had the steak and lobster along with tons of appetizers that were just amazing!

Basket of Thanks!

img_1318

This is my first card that I have been able to make after my surgery!  Man it feels GREAT to be back!!!  I made this for my club this month and just had to use the Basket of Wishes set!

I used a blender pen and  ink pads to color the image.  The sunflower has Wink of Stella Gold (you know I was in withdrawal). I wanted another fun fold, so I did the Z-fold to make it more visually appealing! All you have to do is cut your card base to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2.  Then fold in half-crease with bone folder.  Then you fold back the front to meet the edge of the spine of the card. Crease again with bone folder.  BIG tip: when gluing your focal image, don’t put adhesive on the whole back, just the part that will stick to the side.

img_1317Love my burlap ribbon too!  I think this is my 4th roll? I need to just order 10!

When I saw the Holiday Catalog, this set and matching DSP just stole my heart!  The jewel tones and deep fall colors are stunning!  And I am SOOOO happy they added Copper Foil!  This card was made for my Try it Night last night.  Quick and simple, but very pretty!

I have a few more ideas coming that feature this set!  Another addicting set! But, you have to wait until September 1st to get it!
