Darling Label set

I really love the versatility of this set. Its so easy to create fun and useful cards, tags and gifts. The boxed set comes with two ink spots, a block, stamp set and matching punch. I matched this with the Tea Room dsp, a specialty paper with 24 sheets.
The layers are created with punches, stitched shapes and layering squares framelits. Because the envelopes are quite snug, you want to keep your layers flat, I only used one layer of dimentionals per card.

Happy Stampin,

Hello! It's been a while since I have been here to share. Not that I haven't been making cards though. So, here is a card I made for a recent Stamp Club. It features new products from the 2018-2019 Catalog.
The first card here uses lots of layers. I love the look and it's an easy way to step up a card. You can easily make this a clean and simple card by removing the base layers. The beautiful paper is the Tea Room specialty DSP (146894). It is a thinner paper and good for layers and envelopes. You get 24 sheets in this package, 4 each of 6 double sided sheets, it's a great value. I highly recommend it. I also want to point out the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon (146912), love this! It is so easy to use and to tie and it add such a dainty look to your cards.

A few other elements to the card that I want to mention, the Polka Dot basics embossing folder (143709) to add some texture, and the Pearlized Doilies (146936) because they are pretty.
The stamp set I used is a hostess only set Springtime Stroll (146795) I love it's versatility and charm.

Stamp Set: Springtime Stroll
Paper: gray granite, coastal canbana, rich razzleberry and whisper white card stock; tea room dsp
Ink: coastal cabana and rich razzleberry
Accessories: pearlized doilies, polka dot basics embossing folder, polka dot tulle ribbon, stitched shapes framelits, and basic jewels

I hope you enjoyed this card and I will be posting another few cards in the coming days.

Stampin' Up! Succulent Garden Pop Up slider

I really love, love, love the succulent garden designer series paper.  I saw this slider pop-up card on Pinterest and knew I had to try it out. I found a video by Kim Score here, that was easy to follow with great instruction. I changed the measurements some as I wanted it to slide back a little more so I decreased the back slide by 1/2".
To make this card I paired the succulent garden designer series paper with the Crazy about You stamp set (137137, $25) from the big catalog. They go together perfectly and I like to blend the old and the new. To make the "succulent" on the front I stamped the flower in mint macaron onto the white and then onto a separate piece of white. I  punched the second mint flower out and attached it using a dimensional. I made the smaller flower using the Blossom Bunch punch (140612, $18). I punched the flower in white and sponged some sweet sugarplum ink on it.
This card was a lot of fun to make, I hope you have fun making your own.

Stamp sets: Crazy About You, Endless Birthday Wishes (the dots)
Ink: Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Sahara Sand and Whisper White
Paper: Sahara Sand, Whisper White, and Mint Macaron 
Accessories: Mint Macaron linen ribbon, Flower Medallion punch, Blossom Bunch punch, white perfect accents, basic rhinestones, sponge daubers and 3/4" circle punch

Hello Sunshine!

      Today I am showing you one of my favorite cards. This card is so easy to put together and is so pretty. I used Watermelon Wonder and Flirty Flamingo card stock you can find both of these shades are in the In Color line. This card features two stamp sets, Sunshine Sayings (141594, clear mount, $23) and Falling Flowers (139556 clear mount, $20).
I die cut the flower using the May Flowers framelits set (140276, $31), I cut out one in the Watermelon and then I cut a second one in the corner of my white piece. I didn't use the white one I cut out, I'll save it for another project. I stamped on the white and added my ribbon, then I matted it on the Flamingo. I then glued the Watermelon floor to the Flamingo piece. Its a bit like a puzzle, I did have to play with it a bit to match it up.
I added a rhinestone to the flower, some Wink of Stella Gold to the stamped flowers  and popped it up on the base. 

Be sure to check out my upcoming classes!

I'm Back!

     It has been too long since I joined you here on my blog. I have still been busy making cards, so it is time I returned to share with you some fun cards once again.  My club class is going strong and I'd like to share with you what we worked on in our last class.
     This card features the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series paper (141654, $11), I used one 3" x 5" piece and sliced it in different widths and lengths. I then flagged the ends and attached them to a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of card stock in Island Indigo. I stamped with the Perfectly Wrapped set (141960, $17) in Island Indigo and Encore Gold. I added a small piece of the Fabulous Foil designer acetate (141653, $12)for interest, some black bakers twine (141682, $3) for flair and voila done. The base of the card is Sahara Sand. If I timed down the flowers some I even think this would work well for a masculine card.
     The Perfectly Wrapped set is a FAVORITE of mine and my go to stamp set. Its super cute and has a good variety of phrases and images. 

     Well thank you for joining me on my return to blogging. 
     Happy Stampin',
