Happy Mother's Day card

Hello everyone! TGIF :D

Here is another card from Niki's Spring Inspired class. Click here to see her post with all of the projects from class. This butterfly mother's day card was so fun to make. We got to use one of my favorite tools - the big shot :) We got to use the polka dots embossing folder and the beautiful wings embosslits dies, which I love! Because it not only die cuts the shapes, but embosses at the same time!

And I learned a new way to use the square scallop punch. On this card, three scallop squares were used to create one long scallop rectangle. I love when I can use punches in different ways.



Here is a supply list of product used to make this card:
Basic Gray Card Stock (121044)
Whisper White Card Stock (100730)
Pear Pizzazz Card Stock (119795

Beautiful Wings

Hello!

Today, I would like to share with you a card that I case'd. This card was inspired by a card I saw on an SU webinar. As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I have access to so many training tools with great ideas and tips. I apologize, but I did not write down the name of the demonstrator who created the card. If anyone remembers, please email me so that I can give proper credit :)


And here is a closer shot of the butterflies on the card. I just love butterflies :) And I absolutely love the color combination of this card. And do you see the DSP inside the framelit? It's the Everyday Enchantment DSP that is a Sale-a-bration exclusive and I am so sad to see it go in just 2 days! I know, I know, I sound like a broken record but I can't help it! I love every single sheet and not just every sheet but also the patterns on both sides of each sheet. And don't forget, during Sale-a-bration, with every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) you get to pick 1 item for FREE from the Sale-a-bration catalog. Sale-a-bration ends March 31 so place your orders before it goes away!

 

Here are the supplies I used to make this card:

Thanks For Watching Over Me

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to share a card that I made a few months ago when I first got my new Occasions Mini product. When I saw this stamp set, I knew I just HAD to have it. The Rue Des Fleurs stamp set has that Victorian look that I love. And the stamp images and stamp sentiments pair up so nicely, don't you think?


I wanted to play around with my Stampin' Write Markers. I love my Stampin' Write Markers and I'm so glad that I joined in on a marker share that my up-upline Niki put together last year. It was such a great deal! Not only did I end up with all of the markers, but I also got the matching paper :) The best part was not having to pay around $215 in one payment. The marker share consisted of a group of 4. The share lasted 4 months, but in the end, I was able to get all of the color collections, in-color collections, the storage case to keep all of the markers together, and the matching paper all for about $54 a month. And a nice perk about joining the marker share was that I got to be a hostess for a month and received a $25 shopping spree :) If you are interested in joining a marker share, feel free to send me an email and we can try to get a group started.



Here is the list of the supplies that I used for the card:
Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650)
Soft Suede Card Stock (115318)
Blushing Bride Card Stock (119796)
Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad (115657)
Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker (120973)
Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker (119801 2010–2012 In Color Set)
More Mustard Stampin' Write Marker (100076)
Blushing Bride 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon (125570)
Decorative Label Punch (120907)
Rue Des Fleurs Stamp Set (Clear 125487, Wood 125485)

And remember the best part of Sale-a-bration is that you get to pick 1 FREE item for every $50 (before tax and shipping) you spend!

And another great thing about Sale-a-bration is you can join my fabulous team for only $125! AND you get your choice of free paper or a digital download FREE for the rest of the year! 


Ok, enough of my rambling about Sale-a-bration... back to Rebecca's card. Here is a close up of that flower. Again, there's that Blossom punch! I just love that punch and can't get enough of it!

Blossom Punch Butterfly

Hello! 

Yesterday was a fun and exciting day! I got to attend my first IMPRINTS meeting! What's an Imprints meeting you might ask? Well, Imprints is the name of my up-up-upline's team and there were so many of us that we all met at a hall. The samples and displays were super creative and I couldn't believe I forgot my camera! D'oh!!!! I remembered to charge the battery but forgot to put the camera in my purse before I left! So silly. But I did get to snap some pictures with my phone and I can't wait to share them with you! I can't wait to share the projects and make & take too!

With this many talented demonstrators under one roof, the card swap was AMAZING! Remember how I mentioned yesterday that I would reveal the card I made for the swap? Well, here it is....


And here are a couple close up shots of the Happy Birthday banner and the butterfly. Those who know me, know that I love punches and what's better than punches? Using a punch in ways outside the box! And I was super excited to make the butterflies for the cards. For the butterfly, I used the new Blossom punch in the Occasions Mini Catalog.


All of the lovely ladies who were at the Imprints meeting are super creative but let me just take a minute here to talk about my amazing upline Nicole for a bit here. She did a demonstration and let me just say.... she was GREAT! Not only did she dazzle during her demonstration but she also made little goodies for each of us! Isn't she so sweet?!?!


But wait! There's more!! And aren't these super cute too?!?! Look at the little bunny peeking out of the window :)

Hello!

Today I wanted to give you a little sneak peek of the card that I will be sharing with everyone at my very first IMPRINTS meeting :) I am sooooooo excited!

OK, to be honest, I had everything done last weekend. hehe. No, I'm not excited... not at all ;)

I can't wait to see everyone today! I can't wait to meet new people and I can't wait to see familiar faces as well. And I am really looking forward to seeing all of the awesome creativity that these women bring to the table!

Inspire

Hello everyone!

Here is a card that my wonderful up up-line Niki gave me. She and my upline Nicole are both so sweet and so supportive of all of their downlines. I can always turn to them if I have questions about Stampin' Up! and about projects. And if I need anything for workshops or classes, they do not hesitate to offer to help out in any way they can. I am so lucky to be a part of this team! And if you've been thinking about becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and would like to join my team, you can email me any time!

Click here to see Niki's post about this card.

There are so many things that I love about this card! How she stamped all over to give it a background look, the polka dot embossing folder, the lovely glimmer paper, the embellishments and the ribbon :) And there was a little bit of sponging goin' on, which is one of my favorite techniques!


And here are some close up shots of the flower in the center of the card. I love the different layers of the flowers and to top it off, the cute designer button! I'm thinking I need to order more of those designer buttons because I just can't get enough! And I'm thinking I need to order myself the Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit! Along with the cute die-cut flowers, the kit also comes with Pink rhinestones! Growing up, I was never a pink girl, and even though my favorite color is still blue, I am leaning more and more towards the color pink :) Maybe it's my mom's influence because that seems to be her go-to color these days :)



And even though this card was given to me, with Inspire as the sentiment, I could just as easily give a card to Niki with the same sentiment since she is one of the people who inspire me :)

Here is a supply list of the product I think Niki may have used:
Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (115316)
Silver Glimmer Paper (124005)
Whisper White Card Stock (100730)
Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin' Pad (115658)
Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (117335)
Daffodil Delight 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (120928)
Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit (125410)

For You From Me

Hello everyone!

Here is another card that we made at the Occasions Mini Launch party. I love that we used the new Blossom punch! I love punches :) We even got to play with the big shot using the Stripes Embossing folder. And that new Twitterpated DSP! So so so so pretty isn't it? And we even got to use some of that pretty pleated satin ribbon!
 
Here is a close up of the blossom punch. I simply HAD to get that punch as soon as I saw it and I'm glad that I did. I find myself wanting to use it on every card that I make :) And what's great about Stampin' Up! is that there is usually a stamp set that coordinates with a punch. And I was happy to see that there is a coordinating stamp set. Of course, I got them both :)

 

And here is the blossom punch and the coordinating stamp set - Mixed Bunch. The stamp set comes in Clear Mount as well as Wood Mount. Click here if you would like more information about the stamp set and click here if you would like to learn more about the punch.

Another birthday card for Patricia

Good morning! And Happy Monday :)

Didn't I mention that my friend Patricia was showered with love on her birthday? Well, she was and here is another card that I made for her. This card was signed by her buddies in our department sending her wonderful birthday greetings. I made the card a little bigger than usual so that everyone had room to sign. As I was trying to figure out what kind of card to make her, I came across a card that I made at a make and take that Lorraine was so kind enough to do at a Favorite Things party that Niki hosted awhile back. Stay tuned for that card. I can't wait to share it with you! Now, for this card, I wanted to use a flower and the new pleated satin ribbon. I even used an antique brad for the flower! I LOVE embellishments and sometimes it's so hard to let them go ;)
 


Here is a close up of the flower with the antique brad. Isn't that brad so pretty? And I had fun making the flower. Not only did I get to use the big shot, but I crumpled up the paper to give the flower some texture and dimension. If you'd like me to show you how it's done, I would love to set up a workshop with you :) Feel free to email me at any time!


And here is the supply list:
Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650)

Pretty Birdie

Hello everyone!

Here is a card that I made at Niki's Mini Launch Party back in January. I was excited about this card because we got to use some punches, new DSP and a new big shot product. And I love anything to do with the Big Shot! Have I mentioned that it's one of my most favorite tools?!?!?! Well, it is and it is a MUST HAVE for all you stampers and crafters out there ;)




And here is a close up of the pretty birdie sitting on top of a tree branch in front of a lovely embossed and die-cut heart. How did we make that lovely heart you might ask? Well, I can help answer that question! We used the Big Shot :) and the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits Die. What's great about an embosslits die is that it not only die-cuts a shape but it embosses it too at the same time! Pretty neat, huh?

 

Here is the supply list for this card:
Basic Gray Card Stock (121044)
Whisper White Card Stock (100730)
