Washi Shaker Card

  This card was so easy and fun to do. We learned to make these easy shaker cards at convention this year. You simply lay a piece of acetate over a piece of cardstock and adhere the two together using washi tape. Once you have three sides put together drop in punched "confetti" pieces. Seal the fourth side and you have your shaker, if you put too much confetti in,it may not shake as well. Attach it to your card however you like.

stamp set: Yippee Skippee
ink: real red
paper: so saffron, real red and whisper white card stock; I am Me designer series paper
accessories: stitched real red grosgrain ribbon, 3/8" circle punch, heart punch, itty bitty punches, perfect polka dots folder

Freshly Made Sketch & New Products

     I needed to get my creative juices flowing so I went in search of a new sketch. I stumbled across this blog Freshly Made Sketches, their sketches are right up my alley, I love their clean and simple style. Usually, I just jot down the sketch and go along my merry way. But this time I decided to actually play along.
     I also happened to get my box of NEW Stampin' Up! goodies this week so I have incorporated those as well. Being a SU! demo I get to order a few items from the upcoming idea book and catalog. So I ordered a set of the new In Colors and a couple of the new colors being introduced.
     Well, here is the Freshly Made Sketch #84, FMS84, and my first ever challenge version of it. I used three new colors Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar and the re-introduced Soft Sky. The fluffy flower is made from the Creped Filter Paper, just $2.95 a package. I punched them and colored them with my ink pad.

stamp set: Label Love (2013-2014 catalog)
ink: primrose petals marker
paper: baked brown sugar, soft sky, strawberry slush, and whisper white card stock
accessories: dots and honeycomb embossing folders, crepe filter paper, vintage faceted buttons, bakers twine, polka dot brad, 2-3/8" , 1-3/4" and 1-1/4" scallop circle punches

I had so much fun with this challenge! i can;t wait for the next one. I encourage you to play along too.

Chalkboard technique card and Introducing Paper Pumpkin

I love this old, but new again new technique. It is so much fun! I think it is the white embossing on the black that gives it so much pizzazz. We made this card at my last stamp club meeting. it features the chalkboard technique and new More Amore dsp. The scallops on the right are actually a doily heart (included in the designer series paper) turned on it's side. The More Amore paper is seasonally valentines but I really try and extend it's use to more than that. I think you can send this cute Hello card anytime.
The red scalloped edge on the left is the new Real Red coredinations card stock, it is real red textured card stock with a pink core. So when we distressed the edge a bit you can see the pink inside. Cute!
The technique is super easy, just emboss your images in white embossing powder and then daub some white ink around them. You can use white ink and clear embossing powder but the look is less dramatic.

Stamp Set: Lacy and Lovely
Ink: versamark (watermark)
Paper: More Amore DSP; primrose petals, pool party, basic black card stock and real red coredinations card stock
Accessories: white embossing powder, embossing gun, scallop edge punch, stitched real red ribbon, pool party seam bunding, and primrose petals satin stitched ribbon.

I have two more cards to show you but I am heading out the door. My babies went back to school today after a three week break and I need some retail therapy with my Mama until they come home. I will post those later this week.

In other SU! News, we are launching a NEW line called Paper Pumpkin. It is an online mail order paper crafting kit program. There is a new kit every month featuring either cards, a 3D item or home decor project. All supplies will be pre-cut and everything you need will be provided, except maybe adhesive. You can order a trial kit and your monthly kit anytime at At the end of the processing period please be sure to name me as your demonstrator. I just ordered my kits and I will share them with you all when they come. For more details visit the site!

Soft Suede, Poppy Parade and Pool Party

Such a lovely combo that I never would have paired if it weren't for the Sale-A-Bration designer series paper. This paper is so pretty! I can't put it down and I want to use it on every project I make. I have a card sample for you today that is a variation on one I already did. I have stopped putting greeting onto my card samples as I never have the right one when I need it. I just put my verse on when I am ready to send my card.
Stamp set: Fresh Vintage
Paper: soft suede, pool party and whisper white cardstock; everyday enchantment dsp (SAB only)
Ink: soft suede
Accessories: decorative label punch, 3/4" circle punch, blossom punch, clear buttons, white bakers twine, and dots embossing folder.
This box was adapted from Mary Fish, who got it from another demo, who got it from another demo :). I tweaked it a bit on the lid measurements but everything else is the same. The candies were wrapped using the dsp. My tag was made with the Labels framelits die.
My lid measuresments: 8-1/4" x 8-1/4" and is scored at 1/2", 3-3/4", 4-3/8" and 7-3/4". It is hard to score on acetate, it's more of a guideline. You will need your bone folder to really crease the lines. Adhere it with sticky strip.

Box measurements:
10.25 x 5.25 scored at 1" and 1/2" all the way around. Notch your corners and fold it up. You can use sticky strip or Tombow Multi (what I used).

3" x 10" scored at 3-1/4", 3-3/4" and 4-1/4" from each side. I did adhere the insert to the box bottom so it would stay in place.

Lastly I have this adorable jar filled with chocolate. The jar is from Ikea, love these.
