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.

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.

The bowl cut out in Crumb Cake cs, ice cream scoops are cut out using Very Vanilla cs, to have it be a French Vanilla flavor, the topping is in Chocolate Chip cs, while the cherry is cut from a scrap of Whisper White cs and then colored using Stampin Write markers Real Red and Pear Pizazz, while the spoon is cut from a scrap of silver foil.  They are all cut out the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies found in the Occasions catalog.   The toppings are adhered to the ice cream scoops before the scoops of ice cream are adhered to the bowl using Tombow glue except for one scoop which is adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  The cherry and spoon are also glued on. You then glue the bowl to the4″ x 2 1/2″ Very Vanilla cs.  Using Sweet Sugarplum ink you stamp the sentiment from the Cool Treats Stamps.

Cool Treats

This week I’m going to post the cards I did for my Cool Treats Class in March.

all 4 cool treat cards wm

The first card top left I like to call “peek a-boo” card.  It uses Chocolate Chip cs for the base.  A piece of DSP from Tasty Treats is cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Fold it in half and just gently pinch it so as not to make an entire fold.  Then using paper trimmer cut in 1 1/2″ and then fold each of those halves back to make the triangles.  Using a small glue dot will help hold the edges down.

The largest stitched circle framelits was cut out using Watermelon Wonder cs.  The ice cream cone was cut out using the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.  The cone used Chocolate Chip, the ice cream scoops used Peek-a-Boo Peach and Whisper White cs.  The fudge topping was cut out in Chocolate Chip cs. The cherry was cut out in Whisper White and then colored using Real Red and Pear Pizazz markers.

The sentiment “Sweet” was stamped on a 1 3/4″ x 1″ piece of Watermelon Wonder cs  using Chocolate Chip ink.  Then rounded the corners using Project Life corner rounder. After that use a sponge dauber and go around the edges with Chocolate Chip ink.

Using Tombow glue on the DSP piece put it on the front of the base. Use Stampin Dimensionals to put the other pieces on the card.

You can purchase any of these products by going to either catalog to shop at the store.

I have a new monthly shopping code which is ) KDJMTVZQ for you to use if you order up to $149.00.  If you order $150.00 or more you will be the hostess and receive the Stampin Rewards.

Swirly BirdCard

Happy Friday!

Today’s card is one that I did in the Swirly Bird Class.  We used the Swirly Bird stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies.

img_0790-swirly-1wm

I saw this on Pinterest and just loved the color combinations.  This is a basic A2 card and the measurements are as follows:

Smoky Slate card base cut 8 1/2 x  5 1/2 scoring at 4 1/4.  Whisper White layer is 4 x 5 1/4, the  Sweet Sugarplum layer is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2, and the Smoky Slate paper from the Neutrals Designer paper pad is 3 1/4 x 3 1/4.

The big swirl in the middle was cut out using Basic Gray paper and one of the large Swirly Scribbles thinlits.  Then on a scrap of Whisper White we stamped the swirly flowers and leaves from Swirly Bird stamps and cut them out using the Swirly Scribbles thinlits. Inks that we used were Sweet Sugarplum, Daffodil Delight,Flirty Flamingo, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive. The sentiment was stamped using Thoughtful Banners with Rich Razzleberry ink and cut out using the Duet Banner Punch.  Pearls were added in the middle of each flower.  The sentiment and the diagonal striped piece of paper were adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you would like to order any of these products just click on the icon and it will take you directly to my Stampin’ Up store.  Please don’t sign as No Contact so I will be able to send you a thank you card.

Be sure and check back in a couple of days to see my schedule of classes coming up.

Will continue the rest of the Swirly Bird card class samples in days to follow.

Jars of Love

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m starting to share some of the cards we made in the Jars of Love class this month.  The first card I got the idea from Pinterest that was from one that  Emily Campbell posted.  I liked the way she used not only the Jars of Love stamp set but By the Sea DSP.

Jars of love #2

 

The colors used were soft sky for the base of the card and then the next layer was the DSP paper.  The flowers were stamped using Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo inks.  The leaves were stamped using Emerald Envy ink.  The mason jar was stamped on Soft Sky cardstock using Dapper Denim ink and then cut out with the framelits that go with it.

Assembly of the card on top of the DSP paper you put the doily and then the mason jar is put on with dimensionals.  The flowers and leave stems are also cut out by using the framelit that goes with the stamp.  The stems are put on using fine tip glue, and the flowers are put on the stems and leaves using dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla paper 1″x 4″using Flirty Flamingo ink. You cut the flag at one end.   It is then put on the card using dimensionals.
