Today I am going to be explaining how to do the card on the bottom far right.  I just love this stamp set Eastern Beauty!  The measurements are 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. The Tranquil Tide piece of cs is 5 1/4″ x 4″. the Whisper White piece that I did the stamping on measures 5″ x 3 3/4″.  First, I stamped the big circle in Lemon Lime Twist  and built the card around it.  Next using Tranquil Tide I stamped the first flower image to the left of the circle.  Next, I stamped the flower to the bottom of the middle stamping off the paper. From there I continued building towards the top left corner.  I then came in with Lemon Lime Twist and using the spritzing looking stamp I went around the whole flower over lapping each petal as I did this.  I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide Ink in the big circle.  I adhered the Whisper White layer to the Tranquil Tide layer and then adhered them to the Whisper White card base.  I completed the card by using a circle from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and put it in the middle of each flower.  This was a very easy card to make 🙂

Hurricane Update:

As some of you know I live in the Katy, Texas, area and we have been hit very hard with “Harvey”  The catastrophic storm has brought so much devastation to the Houston  and surrounding areas and it is still wrecking havoc!  It has now moved to the east Texas area and parts of Louisiana!  These last few days have been spent glued to the TV for updates and listening to the pounding rain and wondering if it was going to come into the house!  Today it was sunshiny outside and no RAIN!!

I want to thank all my friends and family for all the beautiful birthday messages, texts, and calls yesterday that made my day so special!! Even despite the devastation of “Harvey” I felt and feel very blessed that my daughter, sister, brother, niece and Brett and myself were all safe and dry during this horrendous time of flooding 😇 So many of my friends have not been as fortunate and my heart is so sad for them. I did have a nice birthday as the sun came out in the afternoon and brightened spirits!! Again thank you all for thinking of me on my birthday and please continue to keep Houston, Katy, and surrounding areas in your prayers! Love you all

I’ll be back with a new card to share tomorrow.  Remember the new Holiday Catalog starts Sept. 1st, so if you would like a copy please let me know so I can get one to you.

Hugs,

Penny

Today will be the third part of this suite.  I’m going to do the top right card to think of you is to smile!  The base is again Fresh Fig 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ like the one Wednesday and this time we are using the Vanilla with flowers and small dots DSP cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″. Take the piece of Very Vanilla cs cut at 5 1/4″ x 2″ and with Fresh Fig ink stamp the saying at the far right side. Next adhere it down to the DSP paper. Then take the gold ribbon and wrap it around the DSP and greeting piece threading a gold tassle over the gold ribbon and holding it in place with a glue dot.  Make a small bow out of the gold ribbon and adhere it by the tassle using a glue dot. Using the 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ Dapper Denim cs square cut out the medallion piece using the large partial cut flower, medium circle, and small circle Thinlit pieces and cut it out using the Big Shot. Add a gold circle  vinyl sticker to the center of the flower.  Adhere the Dapper Denim piece to the piece of Very Vanilla cs 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ with Snail (tape runner).  Then using Stampin’ Dimensionals put it on the left side of the card.  Again put a piece of Very Vanilla cs inside to write the message or stamp the message on.

Today’s card is the bottom left card.  The base is using Fresh Fig cs.  Then you will take a piece of Very Vanilla cut 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and layer large circle frame and medium circle frame thinlit pieces and run it through the big shot.   Then use Fresh Fig ink on the border flourishes and Lemon Lime Twist with the petal flourishes, while using Tranquil Tide for the sentiment.

Next cut the Tranquil Tide DSP paper 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and adhere it to the Fresh Fig card base. Then adhere the stamped medallion piece to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the gold Vinyl Stickers cut the border in half and adhere one half along the top of the medallion piece, and one half along the bottom.  Cut a piece of gold ribbon 9″.  Loop it in half and tack it to the corner of the medallion piece with glue dots. Finally tie the tassel to the ribbon loop with gold thread securing with glue dots if needed.

With the darker pieces of cardstock I like to put a piece of Very Vanilla inside to write the message or stamp a message.

Eastern Palace Suite

I’m back from Kansas City!!  I had a wonderful time soaking up the Holy Spirit in the International House of Prayer KC, otherwise known as IHOPKC Prayer Room.  I enjoyed my time with my younger daughter Amy and her friends and going to her school to help her get her room ready for the new school year!!

My next few blog posts will be the cards I did in my Eastern Palace class.

DSC_1672wm

I did 3 of the ones Stampin’ Up put out for us to use for a class.  I love this Suite of stamps, thinlits, and embellishments! This Suite can be found on pages 18 – 19 in the Annual Catalog.

Today’s card will be the top left one. It uses the new Tranquil Tide cs for the base and also the Designer Series paper which is cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ being careful the wave pattern faces the right way.  The Very Vanilla piece is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. You then run it through your big shot putting the thinlit close to the left side of the paper. You will use the large circle thinlit.  Next you will use a stamp from the Eastern Beauty set.  Using Lemon Lime Twist ink you will use the small circle and stamp a few times on the Very Vanilla piece.  Then using Tranquil Tide Ink you will stamp the sentiment “let’s be friends forever”, the swirly “s” at the bottom, and then the three little leave clusters and stamp in between the wishbone shapes. You then adhere it on the card using snail (tape runner).  Next you will cut the flower out using a 3″x 3″ square of Fresh Fig cs, where you will need to use both of the star thinlits, fitting the smaller one into the larger one and running it through the big shot.  Then use a circle from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and put it in the center of the flower.  Adhere the flower using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Friend

all cards wm

Today’s card is the bottom right “friend” card that uses all the new in – colors for 2017 – 2019.  This is so easy to do and again that’s why I chose to do it at my open-house launch of the new annual catalog!

The card base uses Basic Black cardstock. It measures 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  The Whisper White layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 1/4″ adhered to the black cardstock.  A second piece of Whisper White cardstock is 4″ x 5″ upon which you you build the front of the card. Each of the strips are 1″ x 5″ and will be adhered unto this piece.  The strip colors are Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist. Trim the ends if needed.

Cut out a Whisper White large oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits where the word “friend”is glued on .  “friend”is cut from Basic Black cardstock using the new Lovely Words Thinlits (143733) that also comes in a bundle with the Lovely Inside & Out Stamp Set.

With eitherMulti-Purpose glue or the Fine Tip glue adhere “friend” to the Whisper White oval.

Next take some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and wrap around the card front.  Then adhere the card front to the Whisper White layer.

Complete the card by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to put the oval on top of the ribbon.

Since we are using Basic Black cardstock for the card base pu a Whisper White layer 4′ x 5″ inside the card.

Today’s card is going to be the top right one using the new Daisy punch,  This is a very quick and easy card to make especially for beginners to paper crafts.

Whisper White cardstock is used for the card base which is cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Basic Black cardstock is used for the top layer which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere it to the base card using Stampin’ Up Snail tape runner.  Punch out 3 daisies using the new Daisy punch in Whisper White and adhere them on the card.  Using a scrap of Daffodil Delight punch out 3 centers for the daisies using a 3/4″ circle punch and adhere them to each daisy.  Using a scrap of Whisper White stamp the sentiment “get well wishes” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set using memento Black ink and punch out using the classic label punch.  Next adhere to the back of the label the new Stampin’ Up Mini Dimensionals at both ends and put on the card. To complete the card put a clear Faceted Gem inside each daisy.

Happy Wednesday

Had my Hostess Club gathering last night.  I always have a lot of fun with those gals 🙂  Unfortunately we were missing some because of summertime and vacations.

Today I’m going to share the bottom left card. It was using the Color Theory Suite.

Smile wm

I love this stamp set Colorful Seasons as it has such versatility.  You can do a summer at the beach because of the lounger chair.  You can can do a fall card using the leaf stamps.  There is a snowflake stamp for a winter card.  This suite also has a Memories and More pack which you can use in photo album, scrapbook pages or to add that extra wow to a card!

The base of this card is Berry Burst cardstock which is 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Next layer is Whisper White which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″.  For the open house I had a choice of 4 different colors to choose from which included Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive which was cut to the size 3 3/4″ x 5″ and was adhered to the Whisper White layer with stampin dimensionals.  I cut the flowers out of the variegated side of the Color Theory DSP paper using the flower thinlit from the  Seasonal Layers thinlits that go with the stamp set.  The middle of the flower dots used the Glitter Enamel Dots that go this Suite.

I stamped the saying You make me Smile from the stamp set Colorful Seasons onto a scrap of  Whisper White cardstock.  This card used the Berry Burst ink and was then punched out using the new Pretty Label punch.  Also, the Pretty Label punch was used with the DSP paper.

This suite can be found on pgs. 146 – 147 in the new annual catalog.

You can purchase these products by clicking on the catalog icon to shop with me.  The code for the month of July is JBBJWHFC.  If you spend up to $ 149.99 use that code but if you spend $150.00 or more don’t use it and you will receive the Stampin Rewards.

Till next time a big HUG!
