See ya later birthday

This card was made using the See Ya Later stamp set, which is one of the free sets you can choose with every $50 of merchandise you order.

The background is embossed with the dots embossing folder on Pool Party Core’dinations Card Stock. Then I used a sanding block to distress the dots.  The DSP used on the flag piece is another free option during Sale-a-bration.  It’s called Sweet Sorbet. I finished the card off by adding a little zigzag stitching and a small rhinestone.

Right now this set is my favorite set offered for Sale-a-bration. Let me know what sab item is your favorite in the comments.

Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop.

Today I have a quick card to share with you.  I wasn’t able to get a very good picture, so it really doesn’t show just how pretty the embossing is.

With Sympathy

I used the Apothecary Art stamp set, and then I embossed it in gold embossing powder.  It was cut using the Label Framelits.  Then I water colored the flowers in Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. The “With Sympathy” is from the stamp set called Loving Thoughts.

Thanks for joining me, now be sure to continue on the hop by clicking back or next.

Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop.

Today I have some cute Halloween themed treat bags to show you.  I don’t know if you’ve seen those adorable chevron tag a bag gift bags in the catalog, but they are awesome.  Although I love the chevron bags, I chose to create my own template to make similar bags out of DSP. Once you have a template, they come together pretty quickly. This is what they look like when they are assembled and closed.

monday montage-003

The tag on this bag was created using the Chalk Talk Framelits, Tags Four  You stamp set, and coordinating Label Bracket punch.

monday montage-001

monday montage-002

On this bag I cut the “Goblin Gummies” piece from one of the sheets of DSP. I also chose to close this bag with the Witches’ Brew Designer Washi Tape. 

monday montage-005

monday montage-006

I made the tag on this one using an embossing folder to add some texture, and then I spritzed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. The saying is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

I used the Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper to make the bags. Once I assembled the bags I ran it through the big shot using the Finishing Touches Edgelits to give the top edge a zigzag border.

Here is the basic template I used to create the bags:

Thanks for joining me for another round of the Monday Montage Blog Hop.

I’m so excited to share this card with you today.  It features the new Thinlits Card Dies.  I fell in love with these the first time I used them!  They are super quick and easy, but you wouldn’t know by just looking at the finished card.

In addition to the Thinlets Card Dies, I used the Snowflake Soiree stamp set.  The greeting and sentiment are from the More Merry Messages stamp set. If you are wondering why you can’t seem to find these sets in the catalogs, it is because they are two of the few carry over sets only shown in the online store.  I also used the new silver ribbon, and Winter Frost DSP stack from the Holiday catalog.

Now be sure to click either the back button or the next button in order to see everyone’s fabulous projects.

Harvest of Thanks Hybrid Card

Harvest of Thanks Hybrid Card

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday.  I’ve been stamping the day away in my stamp room, and I can’t wait to share all of the projects I created.

Today I’m sharing a card with you that I CASE’d from this month’s issue of Stampin’ Success.  If you aren’t familiar with Stampin’ Success, it’s a free magazine Stampin’ Up! sends to each of its demonstrators every other month.  It’s packed full of stamping inspiration and techniques.  If this sounds like something you would be interested in receiving, then you might consider becoming a demonstrator.  Click here to find out more about the starter kit.  If you have been considering signing up, but you have questions just send me an email.  I’ll be happy to answer any concerns you may have.

One thing that I want to point out about my card, is that I created it using the Harvest of Thanks digital stamp brush set.  When I chose to CASE this project from the magazine, I realized I didn’t have the stamp set yet, so what’s a girl to do?  Buy the download of course! That is one reason I love My Digital Studio.  You can purchase a “stamp set” and get it instantly without waiting for it to ship. 🙂

Stepped Up Hello Dahlia Card

Stepped Up Hello Dahlia Card

Stepped Up Hello Dahlia Card close up

Today I’m showing you how to take a simple card and add a few additional steps to create a slightly more detailed card. Although this is still a clean and simple card, there are a few added details that really make the card pop.

For this card I simply stamped the vanilla card stock with the dahlia image from the Regarding Dahlias stamp set in Basic Black ink. Then I punched out hello you with the 1 3/4” circle punch, and I used the fine tip end of the basic black marker to doodle around the edge of the circle. These few details really change the look of the card.

Here is the original card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Simple Hello Dahlia Card

Simple Hello Dahlia up close

This card is very clean and simple.  It literally took less than 10 minutes from start to finish to create it.

I don’t know about you, but I just love the stamp set Regarding  Dahlias.  It is a very versatile stamp set that can be used for many occasions.  The set includes a large flower and several greetings.  For this card I simply used the hello you stamp, and I punched it out with the 1 3/4” circle punch.  I love the extra detail added simply by piercing a circle design around the black circle.

Thanks for stopping by today, and be sure to come back tomorrow to see this simple card stepped up with a few changes.

2013 Artisan Finalist Blog Hop – Day 9

» 18 August, 2013 » Artisan, Big Shot, Cards » 0 comments

Welcome to Day 9 of the Artisan Finalist Blog Hop.

Today I’m showing the last card entry I used for the Artisan Contest.

2013 Artisan Finalist Blog Hop Day 9

2013 Artisan Finalist Blog Hop Day 9 inside

I started by dry embossing the edge on the front of the card, and I added the strips of DSP before cutting out the front window.  Then I closed the card and decided where I wanted to place the butterflies and greeting.  I stamped them in Versamark, and then I heat embossed in Whisper White embossing powder.  I did the emboss resist technique by using different inks with a sponge around the embossed image so that the butterflies show up.  I finished by embossing the greeting in Melon Mambo ink and adding a few pearls to the butterflies.

Check out what Elizabeth has to share today by clicking next, and be sure to come back tomorrow for the final day of our blog hop.  I saved the best for last.
