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.


Supplies
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',

Cheerful Tags Window Card

This is a fun card to make, it features the Cheerful Tags stamp set. I like the look of the window it would be pretty with some frost. 

To make the window I first took a 4" x 5-1/4 piece of Whisper White card stock and added some All is Calm washi tape and a few stamped snowflakes. I die cut a starburst  into the center. I then layed this on my Soft Sky card base as a template and placed a circle die into the center of my starburst. I taped the circle down to the card base with a small piece of washi, so it would stay put, removed the white piece and then ran the card base through the Big Shot. I then added a white piece to the inside of my card and stamped the "holiday cheer" through the circle that way it was perfectly placed.  After that I attached a piece of window sheet to the back of my white piece and attached that to the front of my card. 
I added the Frosted Sequins to give it some bling and the cute snowflake medallion. 



Supplies:
stamp set: Cheerful Tags (135065)
ink: Real Red (126949), Lost Lagoon (133644) and Soft Sky (131181)
paper: Whisper White(100730), Soft Sky (131203) and Lost Lagoon (133672) card stock
accessories: Starburst framelits dies (132967), Circle framelits dies (130911), All Is Calm designer washi tape (135844), Frosted Sequins (135835), 1-1/4 scallop circle punch (127811), 1" circle punch (119868) and basic rhinestones (119246)
