Today, the Sisters in Stamping are featuring pearls.  I wanted to keep my creation plain to feature them.  This is what I created.  I think it is a very elegant card that could be used for many occasions.

I cut out a piece of Shimmery White first and scored it.  Then, I adhered it to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  Next, I adhered to a piece of Silver Foil cardstock, then to another piece of Night of Navy.  Finally, I adhered to Whisper White cardstock card base.  After layering, I placed each pearl in the cross section of the score marks.  I finished up the card with a bow tied from Organza White Ribbon.

Thanks for looking.  Check out the other pearl creations at the Sisters In Stamping blog here.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Pinterest Inspired

TGIF!  Happy Friday!

The Sisters In Stamping are getting creative by being Pinterest inspired!  We were to find something on Pinterest and then create a likeness using Stampin' Up! products.

I chose this Pinterest image found here:
I didn't realize that this is actually a vintage Christmas card.  I just really liked the image and knew I wanted to use my new bell punch :)

So, this is my card, inspired by the image above:

I used several punches on this card:  Bell Punch, Snow Flurry Punch, and the little bow is from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  I also used the Real Red 3/8" Stitched Ribbon.  I love this ribbon - it's gorgeous!  I used a lot of different papers too.  The base card is Real Red cardstock.  I then used a piece of Shimmery White to place against the card base.  I punched one bell and the snowflakes from the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper.  I punched the bell from the Real Red Glimmer paper.  The silver bells were punched out of the Silver Foil paper.  I added some Basic Rhinestones to the snowflakes to give them a little pop.

This was a fun challenge and it got me looking at different things on Pinterest in a whole new light!  So, while pinning, see what inspires you!

Thanks for looking and check out what the other Sisters created from their inspired pins!

It's Responsible Dog Ownership Day

Who knew there was a national day for that?  Well, it gave me a good excuse to use one of my favorite dog sets!  To all of you responsible dog owners out there, I applaud you!  Give your furries a head rub for me :)

The image and sentiment are from the Ruff Day stamp set.  Love this set!!!!  I used some bone designer paper and layered it on Early Espresso cardstock.  I framed the sentiment in a bone by punching out two hearts and adhered to a piece of Espresso cardstock.  Then, I finished it off with a bow :)

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Show Teachers Some Appreciation!

TGIF!!!  Happy Friday and I hope all the kids and teachers are off to a great school year. 

This week, the Sisters In Stamping are creating note cards for teachers.

These are the cards I created using the new In Color Designer Papers, Inks, and Enamel Dots.  I also used the Butterfly and Tags dies.  The sentiments came from the Tin of Cards set.

I packed them in a clear acrylic note card box and used some ribbon to tie it all together.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!

Show that school spirit!

Today is National College Colors Day!  So, I picked George Mason University for my project.  I went there and now my niece is going there!  I have to be honest and say I don't love their colors (Green and Gold), but I don't think any school has pink and purple as their school colors ;)

I chose to keep it very simple today.

I used the stamp from Badges and Banners and cut it out and the framing pieces using the Layering Circle Framelits.  I also used the Banners Framelits.  The cardstock I used was Garden Green and Crushed Curry.  I embossed the background piece using the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder.

Check out the other Sisters In Stamping college color projects here!

Just Because

It's National Just Because Day!  So, I decided to use my adorable Just Beakause stamp set!  I love this set and haven't used it nearly as often as I'd like.  So, this was the perfect reason to use it again :)

I colored in each stamp using my markers and then stamping the cardstock.  I then used my Layering Circles dies to cut out each image.  I used some paper from an old Designer Series Pack.  They still looked like they needed something, so I added some colored pearl embellishments.  Fun!

Have a great day today, just because!  Thanks for looking :)

It's National Dog Day!

Happy National Dog Day to all of your dog and pet lovers!  Give your dog an extra treat for me today :)

In honor of this day, the Sisters In Stamping are featuring dog projects.  I decided to use my new Bella And Friends stamp set.  I bought a nice center step die at the scrapbooking convention this year and decided to give it a try.  I like it!  It does make the measuring and scoring so easy - you only use a half of a piece of cardstock too!  Anyway, here's the card I made this week:

I decided to use Dapper Denim cardstock and matching DSP, ribbon, and enamel shapes.  I left Bella uncolored, but did color her collar and tag with my markers (Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler).  I used the Layering Squares dies on the stamped image and framed piece.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Happy Hawaiian Birthday!

I love this set that retired last year and I didn't even get to use it until now!  But, I have several friends that love Hawaii just as much as I do or are from Hawaii and I know this card will make them smile on their special day (hope so!).  So, I made two and used slightly different colored cardstock for each.  One is Pool Party and Crumb Cake.  The other uses Soft Sky and Sahara Sand.  I tore the cardstock and layered it to make it look like sand.  Then, I used my markers to color in the surf boards and then cut each one out.  I stamped the seashells in both Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake and used the mini punches to punch them out.  One of the seashells had to be cut out by hand as I didn't have a punch for it.  The turtle is stamped on Wild Wasabi cardstock using Garden Green ink, then cut by hand.  I bought the Hawaiian Happy Birthday stamp in Maui a couple years ago and stamped it using Memento Black Tuxedo ink on Crushed Curry cardstock.  It took a long time to make these two cards, but I love them and hope my friends will too!

Mahalo for looking and have a great day!

Treat Box

There are many tools I use for my paper crafts, but one of the best and most used is my Big Shot.  When it first came out, I didn't understand its potential!  Thank you, Debbie W., for seeing the potential and knowing I wouldn't be able to live without it.  It was one of the best Christmas gifts ever!!!!

Debbie Naylor, from the Sisters In Stamping group (and actually my real sister!), absolutely loves the Big Shot.  I know it is her "go to" tool.  That's why she picked it for today's SIS theme.

I decided to make a treat box using the Bakers Box Thinlit.  I used the gold embossed polka dotted paper from the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP pack and the gold foil sheet for the die cut "yum" and bow (bow builder punch).  It really does make it so easy and so quick to be able to run some paper through the Big Shot and assemble.  I filled the box with Rolos to match the gold :)  Yum!!!

Head on over the SIS blog here to see what other Big Shot projects were made!

Thanks for looking and have a great day and weekend!

Friendly Friday

Happy Friday!

Celebrate a friend this weekend!  That's what we are about today at the SIS blog :)

Here's the very quick and simple card I made today:

I knew I wanted to use this new stamp from the Banners & Badges stamp set.  I've been wanting to use my new In Color Enamel Shapes for a while and when I saw the stars on the stamp, my idea came together!  I love it when that happens ;)  I then used all 5 new In Colors and die cut stars.  I randomly placed them over the cardstock and decided to add more of the enamel stars.  I used dimensionals to give the stamped and punched image a little lift.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for looking!

See what the other wonderful ladies made today here.

Color challenge!

I love a good color challenge.  Karla, from Sisters In Stamping came up with this beautiful color combo!

I actually ended up making two cards for this challenge because I wasn't crazy about the first one I made.

This is the first card I made.  I wanted to use my new In Color DSP and the Pretty Kitty stamp set.  So, I stamped my image, colored it in, and then used my new Circle dies to cut out the image and DSP.  I used some new In Color ribbon to "tie" it all together, but I don't love it. 

I started thinking that I needed to go more simple for this color challenge.  So, this is what I created.  I love it!  I used the same DSP and just stamped directly onto it.  I die cut the butterflies and the card was done!  I started to put some pearl embellishments on the butterflies, but decided to stick to simple.

And another challenge done!  Thanks for looking and head over to the Sisters In Stamping blog to check out what the talented SISers did for this challenge!

Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

This week's theme is ice cream and as soon as I saw the Playful Palette DSP stack, I thought of ice cream.  I'm not sure why, but this one paper reminds me of a fun flavor with sprinkles on top!

Check out the other ice cream creations at the Sisters In Stamping blog here!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Summertime Fun

What do I think of when I think of summer?  Flowers!  I'm not a fan of the heat and humidity of summer, but I do love the gorgeous colors of summer flowers, trees, and grass.  Summer has finally hit our area and it's hot and humid!  But, the grass is so green and the flowers are just gorgeous. 

This week's Sisters In Stamping theme is summer.

I recently went to a scrapbooking convention and dies and water coloring are definitely this year's fad.  I took a couple water coloring classes to try to improve my terrible hand at it.  I think it helped a little.  I'll just keep trying :)

So, I decided to combine water coloring and dies in this week's card.

First, I used my aqua painter and Soft Sky ink pad to create the washed out background (watercolor paper).  I then die cut the Flourish thinlits and then water colored them with my aqua painter and inks.  I assembled the card and added a colored pearl and some Crystal Effects to give the card a little more dimension.  It does remind me of summer :)

Stamps:  Thoughtful Banners

Inks:  Pool Party, Soft Sky, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and Memento Tuxedo Black

Punches:  Duet Banners

Dies:  Flourish Thinlits

Cardstock:  Watercolor Paper, Pool Party (Base)

Accessories:  Pearls, Crystal Effects, and Dimensionals

Thanks for looking and wishing you a wonderful summer!

Head on over to the Sisters In Stamping blog to see what reminds them of summer!

The Catalog -Time To Get Busy!

I received my new SU! catalog order this week and was so excited!  I just love the new In Colors this year and there are so many great new items.  The catalog is redesigned and it looks fabulous. 

I'm ready to start stamping again :)

I'm joining the Sisters In Stamping this week in their Pick-A-Section of the IBC Catalog.  The new catalog is broken down into themed sections, but a little differently than before.  I love it!  I chose "A Little Foxy Suite - Cute Baby Critters" section to feature.

On my cards, I've used the Foxy Friends stamp set, the Fox Builder Punch, and A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack. 

Here are the two cards I created:

The first card I made is supposed to be a little fox.  Now that I'm looking at him, I should have stamped some paws  I might go back and do that :)  On this card, I used the items above and also used the new Layering Circle Framelits, the Banner Triple Punch, and my new favorite bling - Metallic Enamel Shapes (LOVE!) I pulled the cardstock colors from the DSP stack (Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Smoky Slate)

The second card I made is of a raccoon.  I think these critters are especially cute except when they eat all of my suet that I leave out for the birds!  Again, I used the DSP stack for the top piece.  I then ran it and the Basic Black card piece through the Big Shot using the new Layering Oval Framelits.  The raccoon is stamped on the inside using Smoky Slate and Basic Black.  I used Pearl Basic Jewels for the eyes and nose.  I then punched out the butterfly with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches and added the new 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Pool Party - love this ribbon!

I decided not to add any sentiment to these cards yet.  I will stamp the sentiment once I decide on the occasion and the who is to receive them :)

One In A Million...

This week's project for the Sisters In Stamping was to feature trees.  I intended to stamp a tree, but when I was going through my designer series paper, I came across this one (Sweet Li'l Things) and I just had to use it!  I really love this Watermelon Wonder ribbon!  It's my current favorite ribbon.  When I saw that it was one of the colors in this DSP, I knew it was fate :)

Here's the very simple card I created:

On the inside, I'll write, "You're one in a million!" 

It can be for a birthday or thank you or just a friendly thinking of you card.

I used my Wink of Stella pen to give the one tree some glimmery shine.  Then, I put some Crystal Effects on top of it.  I have new multifocal contacts and I'm adjusting to them, so my Crystal Effects isn't as clean as I'd like.  But, you get the point of the card, right? :)

Thanks for looking!  Head on over to the Sisters In Stamping blog to find out what projects the other ladies created with trees.

Punch It!

Today's challenge was a challenge for sure!  Today's challenge was punch art - we were to create a project using punch art.  I thought and thought on this for days!  Finally, a scarecrow popped into my head. Don't ask me why!

Anyway, I sat down and this is what I created - he was too big for a card, so I decided to stick him in a shadowbox and put some haystacks next to him.  I think I'll put him out in the Fall as a decoration!

I used the Bohemian DSP for the hat, clothes, and patches.  I used Delightful Dijon for the hay, cutting it with my Fringe Scissors and then running it through a crimper.

Face:  Naturals Ivory cardstock punched out using 1 1/2" circle punch

Eyes:  Black cardstock punched out using the tear drop shape from the Tree Builder punch and then putting pearls inside

Nose:  Tangelo Twist cardstock punched out using Tree punch - very tip

Cheeks:  Blushing Bride punched out from Owl Builder punch

Overalls - Bohemian DSP punched out from Note Tag Punch and Tree Punch

Hat - Bohemian DSP punched out from Oval Punch (and folded over) and Tree Punch

Patches - Bohemian DSP just cut with scissors

Smile - SU! Black marker drawn by hand :)

I'll probably open it back up and have him hold a banner in the Fall.  But for now, he is done!

Thanks for looking and check out the other Sisters In Stamping Punch Art projects here.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks With A Cup Of Tea

Today's challenge was to make a Thank You card.  I decided to use my Have A Cuppa DSP stack again.  I just love the colors and papers in this assortment!

Here's the card I made - It's pretty simple:

I just used one piece of the DSP.  I then used some accompanying colored cardstock (Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry) and cut them out using the matching Cups and Kettles Framelits Dies.  I stamped the sentiments from the Petite Pairs and A Nice Cuppa stamp sets in Memento Tuxedo Black.  Then, I added the Bermuda Bay Stitched Ribbon and Pearls.  That's it - very simple and easy.  So, you could easily make a bunch of these quickly!

Speaking of thanks, thanks for looking!  Please check out the other thank you cards made by the other Sisters In Stamping here.

It's All About The Numbers

This week, it's all about numbers!

I'm sure my niece doesn't read my blog, so I'm okay posting this birthday card I made her ;)  Her birthday is next month and she'll be 17 - what, what?  When did that happen?  I fell in love with the Large Numbers Framelit Dies as soon as I saw them and had to have them.  I also fell in love with the It's My Party DSP.  That stack has some amazing papers!  I love that you get a ton of them too.  These framelits allow you to do so many cool things.   SU! really gave us some cool matching accessories for this birthday theme and I love them all!  It was hard not to use them all :)  But, I decided on just a couple.  I love this matching Baker's Twine, so I decided to use a bit of it. 

 I couldn't not use the cut out 17, so decided to use it on the inside of the card with some punched out balloons in matching cardstock colors.
This was a very fast and simple card to make, but I hope she'll like it!

Thanks so much for looking.  Check out the other numbered cards on the Sisters in Stamping blog here.

It's Tea Time!

This week's Sisters In Stamping theme was to create something coffee or tea inspired.  I've been down with a cold and now a sinus infection, so tea has been welcome in my hands lately!  That's huge for me since you always see me with coffee in my hands.  I think if I cut myself, coffee runs out!

Anyway, I love the new matching cup stamp set, paper, and framelits, don't you?  The colors in the  Have a Cuppa DSP stack are so cute too!

Here's the card I created this week:

I used papers from the Cuppa DSP stack and cardstock colors to match the stack:  Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Petite Pairs stamp set using Memento ink.  I also added the Silver Baker's Twine for the tea bag.

Thanks so much for looking and hope you and yours are well and stay well!  Spring is almost here :)  Have a great weekend!

Easter Cards

This week's Sisters In Stamping theme is "Easter Cards"!  This was great for me because it helped me get a jump start on my Easter cards :)

I loved this little lamb stamp as soon as I saw it and had to have it.

I also love vellum!  This Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack has some beautiful designs.  I decided to pair the stamp with the vellum and also the In Colors!  I have to admit, I have not embraced this year's In Colors as I have past ones.  So, I decided to use each color.  Since there are 5 different vellum designs, it was perfect for using with the 5 In Colors!

 Above are all 5 cards.  The first card I assembled was on the Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  I used the Tombow glue on the back of the Watermelon Wonder cardstock to adhere to the Whisper White cardstock card. It had a weird effect on the vellum even though the glue didn't come anywhere near the vellum!  It still made it ripple like it was a little wet.  I don't know why it did that.  So, I didn't use the Tombow glue for the other 4 cards.  Instead, I used the a roller adhesive on the back of the In Color cardstock.  It worked perfectly.

 I stamped the lamb image using Staz On.  I have found that it is the only ink that doesn't smear on vellum and dries nicely.  I then used my In Color markers to color in the lamb's cheeks, ears, hooves, and the grass.
 Hopefully, you can see the vellum patterns on each of these - so cute!  I thought they matched well with my little lamb.

I wish you all a very Happy Easter!  Thank you for looking.

Little Wildflowers

Happy Friday!

The Sisters In Stamping wanted to remind you that it's not too late to get some great freebies during Sale-A-Bration when you place a $50 order with a Stampin Up! demonstrator.  Today, we will all feature products using SAB products.

I got a lot of free SAB products and love them all!  I've already used the Sky Is The Limit stamp set with the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper - they are just meant to be used together!  This time, I'm using another perfectly teamed stamp set and paper - Flowering Fields stamp set and Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.

Here are the cards I designed:

I decided to make two since I was cutting two diagonals of two different Wildflower Fields papers.  I wanted to see what they would look like on two different colored cardstocks too.

The first one is layered on Lost Lagoon cardstock.

The second is layered on Old Olive.

I like the look of both, but I think the feel is slightly different, don't you?  I stamped the fern looking flower in Old Olive.  I used the third stamped off image as the first and second were too strong. I stamped the first and second on a scrap piece and then stamped the third on this piece of card stock.  I did it again so as to give a little more of a background.  Then, I stamped the flower image using black Memento.  I colored in the flower using my blender pen and pulling the Blackberry Bliss ink off of the stamp pad's lid.  I tried using the marker, but it was so dark, you couldn't see the flower and its petals, so I decided to use the blender pen.  I then colored in the leaves using the Old Olive marker.  I stamped the butterflies in Tangelo Twist and colored them in using the Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon markers.  I stamped the "Thank You" sentiment (from the Perfect Pairings stamp set) in black Memento and punched it out using a 1 inch circle punch. 

Thank you for looking.  I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope you'll enjoy the other ladies' creations here.  Have a great weekend!

Mint & Chocolate

Mint and Chocolate - two things that go very well together!  That's this week's challenge over at the Sisters-in-Stamping blog.  Jennifer picked two things I love!  The color mint was one of my signature colors in the 80s.  I've never stopped loving it and have been so happy that the color has come back in style in the past couple years!  I'm buying it up like crazy :)  I also love the taste of mint in anything, especially when mixed with chocolate.  How could you not????

I immediately thought of chocolate mint candies when I saw the challenge.  So, I had to make a favor box.  I fell in love with this Curvy Keepsakes Box - it's so easy to assemble too!

Here's what I made:

I just used Chocolate Chip cardstock to make the Curvy Keepsake Box.  Then, I used the Mint Macaron cardstock and the Bow Builder Punch to make the pretty bow.  It was still needing something, so I stamped the "It's For You" sentiment (from the Amazing Birthday set) on Mint cardstock using Chocolate ink.  I cut it out using the round label thinlit that comes with the Curvy Keepsake Box thinlit.  It even cuts out the hole for ribbon and string!  I tied the label on with the new Mint/Black Baker's Twine.

It's simple, but I love it.  I'd love to receive this filled with some mint chocolates, wouldn't you?  Yum!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

A Little Valentine's Treat

Happy Valentine's Day a little early :)  This week, we made Valentine's Day candy favors for the weekly Sisters In Stamping challenge.

I love candy favors!  If I could only make one thing, it would be candy favors! :)

I used the Love Blossoms Designer Series Stack papers to make these adorable little boxes.  I made the boxes using the Gift Box Punch Board.  It was my first time using it and I wasn't sure if it would be easy or not, but it is really easy!  I love this tool!  The gift bag punch is another story.  But, let me show you the boxes I made :)

Here they are!

Aren't they cute?  They are so versatile too - use any designer paper or stamp the paper.  Use any matching ribbon.  You could also add stamped images punched out and lots of bling if you wanted.  The possibilities are endless.  I decided to let the designer paper be the star of these boxes.  I did feel I needed to add the ribbon to jazz them up just a little though.  I can't wait to make more boxes now that I have used the punch board!  What a great tool :)

I wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day.  Thanks for looking.  To see more Valentine's Day Candy Favors, head on over to the Sisters In Stamping blog here.

Get Well!

Today's Sisters In Stamping challenge was to make a Get Well card.  I initially had a hard time coming up with an idea until I saw my new Cuppa stamps, DSP, and matching dies!

I always seem to want hot tea when I'm sick.  So, I thought this assortment would make a great Get Well Card.

Here's my card and what I used:

I used the Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies - the cup - and ran it through the Decorative Dots embossing folder.  I then stamped the sentiment "Feel Better" from the Sassy Salutation stamp set.  I used Melon Mambo ink and cut out the sentiment and mounted it on Melon Mambo cardstock.  I used the corner punch on both.  I used a piece of Metallic Gold Baker's Twine for the "tea bag" string and stapled it to the sentiment-"tea bag" piece.  I adhered the other end of the twine using a Dimensional and then adhered that piece to the Have A Cuppa DSP.  I love the colors of this DSP - so cute and cheerful!  I thought I would use the matching stamp set (A Nice Cuppa), but it didn't work for my card.  That's okay - next time!

Thanks so much for looking.  Please check out the other Get Well cards that the Sisters In Stamping made here.

Have a great day!

Time to Sale-A-Brate!

It's Sale-A-Bration time with Stampin' Up!  I love this time of the year - place an order and get free stuff!  I was so happy to get my order last week :)  We had a huge snow storm, so the weekend was spent playing with my new goodies :)

I'm happy to be joining the Sisters-In-Stamping on some more weekly challenges!  Today's challenge was to create something to celebrate Sale-A-Bration!

I knew as soon as I saw the Sky Is The Limit set that I had to have it.  My FIL loves planes, especially older ones.  So, I thought I'd use this set for my card this week.

Here it is:

I also knew I had to have the beautiful Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper.  It's so beautiful in person.  Both the paper and set are available for a limited time only, so get it before it's gone if you like them!

I stamped the airplane image and sentiment on some silver cardstock using black StazOn ink.  I cut out the airplane.  I ran the sentiment piece in the Banner Triple Punch and put three silver brads on it.

I ran the Crushed Curry DSP through the Big Shot using the new Sunburst Thinlet Die - isn't it awesome?  I adhered the sunburst to a piece of Soft Sky DSP and used Dimensionals to pop up the plane and banner. 

I'm sorry the sentiment is so hard to read.  It was really hard not to get a reflection; the hardships of photographic shiny paper!

Anyway, I'm happy with the way my card turned out and I know my FIL will love it.  I feel like the airplane is bursting out of the sky and sun's rays and shouting "Happy Birthday!"

Thanks so much for looking and please check out the cards the lovely ladies of Sisters In Stamping created!
