Mother's Day Flower Card

Today I have another card I made at a Demonstrator Group event. This one is for Mothers Day! I am really loving the kraft paper lately and this card is a perfect example of how pretty it is! This card is really simple. The big flower is cut out from the Sending Love designer paper using the XL Flower Folds die in the Big Shot. Then I used some Sweet Pea Stitched Felt pieces to put in the center. The happy mothers day sentiment is from the set Teeny Tiny Wishes and was stamped on white card stock and punched out using the Modern label punch. I added a cute little chocolate brad, then I attached it on with a dimensional dot. To finish it off I added the pretty in pink satin ribbon.

stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
ink Chocolate Chip
paper:Kraft, Sending Love Designer, Whisper White
other: sweet pea stitched felt, big shot, Flower Folds Die, dimensional, modern label punch, brad

Milk Carton

Whooo Hoooo! I'm super excited, this morning I bought my ticket for the Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar in April! I've never been to a big Stampin' Up! event before so I'm really looking forward to it. One of the great things about being a demonstrator is getting to go to events like this and share your excitement with people who love it as much as you do! I'm sure I will get tons of great ideas to share with everyone.

I looked at the info for the seminar and attendees will be getting the stamp set Vintage Vogue so I decided to share this little milk carton I made using this set. I don't actually own this set-- I made this at a group event -- So I will be excited to get it! This little cutie was easy to make. It's made using the Mini Milk Carton Die cut from Rich Razzleberry card stock using the Big Shot. Then-- before I folded it up, I stamped the border along the bottom with Rich Razzleberry ink. Then add some polka-dot razzleberry ribbon. The flower is stamped from the same set and had a rhinestone brad for the center! Isn't it cute?

stamps:Vintage Vogue
ink: rich razzleberry
paper: rich razzleberry, whisper white

Top Note Wolf Box...

I'm a little behind on posting lately... I've had a bad cold this week and am just starting to feel better today! Here is what I made for my husband for Valentines day... He really likes wolves so when I saw this fox box on Kimberely Morris blog here I knew I had to try to make a wolf one. I loved how he turned out. Even my husband was impressed. I filled him up with candy, of course.

To make this you need a few different big shot dies. It uses the top note die and the scallop oval die. The rest is just measuring, cutting and scoring, then some circle punches for the nose and eyes. I used going gray and whisper white card stock.

Monkey Spinner Card...

This little monkey from the Fox & Friends Stamp set is perfect to use for a spinner card! This cute little guy slides back and forth across the card front!

I also used the branch from the stamp set Great Friend and the birthday words from the set A Little Birthday Cheer. This is one of the cards we will be making in my upcoming Cards that Move Class. I love how easy and fun it is to make this type of card. I hope if you are local that you can join me next Thursday to make him and some other great cards. Contact me to sign up!

Here's a close-up of the monkey:

Look what you can make with the new Mini Milk Carton die!! How cute is this? I just cut out the shape using the new Mini Milk Carton die in my big shot with soft suede card stock. Then, I punched a hole in one side using the circle punch. For the roof, I cut a piece of card stock to 2" x 4" and folded it in half. I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch to make the edges. I layered two more pieces to add on the roof.

The bird is punched from old olive (branches) and baja blue (bird and wing). I sponged the edges with soft suede ink.

Isn't this super fun? I love finding ways to make new things with the Big Shot dies!

Friends Card

Here is a card I made at a recent stamping group meeting. One of the things I love about stamping is going to events with other people who love it as much as I do.

I love the soft color palette -- It is such a perfect card to send anyone to brighten their day!

ink: old olive, so saffron

Happy Valentines Day!

Hope you are having a great Valentines Day with your loved ones!

Here is one last valentine to share with you! This one was super simple to make. I used the jumbo roller I {love} Love from the Occasions mini and rolled it out with real red ink on very vanilla card stock. I tied some red satin ribbon around it and framed it with Chocolate Chip card stock that I used the scallop trim border punch on. Then added it to my real red card stock base and added the sentiment "with all my heart" from the With All my heart set.

A simple, sweet and easy Valentine!

stamps: I {Love} Love, With all my Heart
ink:real red, chocolate chip
paper:real red, very vanilla, chocolate chip
other: real red satin ribbon, scallop trim border punch

Milk Carton Caddy

I made this for the hostess of my last workshop! I made the cartons using the new mini milk carton die for the big shot that is in the occasions mini. I love these cute little milk cartons and saw the tutorial showing how to make the little caddy for them on Kathleen's blog here and knew I had to try it. I love how easy this was to make and so cute. You could make it for any occasion by changing the colors and paper you use! For mine, I used chocolate chip and the Sending Love designer paper!

Tissue paper flower Card

When I saw the tissue paper flowers on Julie Buhlers blog post here, I had to try to make them myself. They're really easy. You just stamp on tissue paper...I did four layers, and then lay on top of a piece of cardstock...I used old olive and punch all the layers together. Then you can kind of spread out your layers and make it look like a flower. The epoxy brads make a perfect finishing accent to the center.

For this card, I used the jumbo roller I {Love} Love, with real red ink on real red cardstock to make a background pattern. Then I used chocolate chip as the next layer and added some real red satin ribbon around it. The main image is a piece of whisper white cardstock that I punched both edges of using the scallop trim border punch. I attached my flower to this piece and stamped the word friend from the With all my Heart stamp set. This piece was attached with dimensionals to make it pop off even more.

Hope you're having a good Valentines weekend!!

Foxy Valentine!

This little fox is so adorable.... he's my favorite stamp from the Fox & Friends stamp set. I thought he would be perfect for making a valentine! You could send it to someone "foxy"....he he he.

I made this card with a going gray base... I don't use gray that often but I love how it turned out here-- it makes a great neutral. Then I used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to make the dotted soft suede paper that is in the background. A piece of the sparkly pink paper from the sending love designer paper makes a great color accent. Then I stamped the fox with Soft Suede ink on Very vanilla paper and added the sentiment "Love you much" from the Well-scripted stamp set. And of course, added a little heart in pretty in pink (punched with the small heart punch) to add a finishing touch.

stamps: Fox & Friends, Well-Scripted
paper:going gray, soft suede, very vanilla, Sending Love
ink:soft suede
other: very vanilla satin ribbon, small heart punch, perfect polka dots embossing folder, big shot

yummy Valentine...

I received this yummy valentine from my upline. Isn't it super cute? It's a candy bar (I think a kit-kat....mmmm) and it's wrapped in deisgner paper and then crimped on the edges using a paper crimper.

The only problem with giving a gift this cute is that it is almost too pretty to open and eat!!

stamps:Vintage labels
ink:real red
paper:real red, whisper white, Sending Love specialty paper
other: candy bar, crimper, red stitched grosgrain ribbon, oval punch

Valentine Ribbon Wreath

Here is a wreath I made at a recent event I attended. Isn't it gorgeous? I love how beautiful all the ribbons are and it's a perfect accent for Valentines day! It's really easy to make. You start with a Styrofoam wreath form and then a TON of ribbon cut to 3" long strips-- I'm not sure how many pieces but it was a lot! Then just start sticking them in with little took a while but it's so worth it!

All My Heart

Valentines day is coming up and the colors in the Sending Love paper are perfect for making Valentines. This card would make a great valentine. The base is real red cardstock and I cut a piece of the Sending Love paper to fit across the middle. I used the new Scallop Trim border punch to accent the edge and tied around it with some very vanilla satin ribbon. The flower is punched using the new Extra Large Fancy Flower punch. I punched it twice, once from the patterned paper and once from vanilla. The stamped flower is from the set With all my Love and I added corduroy brad in the center. It turned out really pretty, I think. Then I used the sentiment "Celebrate you" from the set A Little Birthday Cheer.

Love the circles

I love this Circle Circus Stamp set and when I saw the Vintage Labels set in the Sale-a-bration mini, I knew they would go perfect together. For this card I chose to use kraft cardstock for the base. Since the kraft paper isn't part of Stampin' Ups 48 regular colors I didn't think to get it for the longest that I have it I love it. It's a great neutral and goes really well with bright colors! I paired it with bermuda bay and soft suede for this card. I stamped the middle piece using bermuda bay and soft suede circles. Then I framed that with a piece of bermuda bay cardstock punched along the edge with the new scallop trim border punch. The Happy Birthday sentiment and the cool circle it's stamped inside are from the Vintage Labels set. I punched it out with the scallop punch and sponged the edges before adding it onto my card with a dimensional. Hope you like it!

ink: bermuda bay, soft suede
paper: whisper white, kraft, bermuda bay, soft suede

Best Wishes

Happy Friday Everyone! I'm so glad it's Friday...this has been a long week. I'm excited I have a small class tonight to do some mini albums with some of my favorite girls and then a workshop tomorrow with some of my other favorite girls! This will be a weekend with fun stamp time!

Today I'm sharing with you a cute little card that would be perfect to send to anyone. I made the colors a little more masculine but I think it's pretty neutral. I used the stamp set Fox and Friends to stamp the fun little fox, owl and giraffe. When I saw this set and the adorable fox I knew I had to have it! Each little guy is puched out using the curly label punch. I also stamped the cute little frame and "best wishes" from the Vintage Labels Sale-a-bration set. The polka dotted background is embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder in the Big Shot.

stamps: Fox & Friends, Vintage Labels
ink: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede
paper: crushed curry, soft suede, whisper white
other: curly label punch, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Polka dot dusty durango ribbon.

Beautiful Birthday Bird

Here is a simple and beautiful card that I designed for my last Stamp-a-Stack. I started with a melon mambo card base-- I'm so glad it's close to Valentines so I can use lots of pink!! Then I used the Top Note die (my favorite die) in my Big shot to cut out that cool shape. Then I used the new Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch to make the bird. This punch is really cool. It's nice and big and punches the bird, the wing, and the branch out all at once. I punched it once out of Razzleberry Lemonade Designer paper and once out of old olive to get the branch. Then I flipped the designer paper for the wing before I glued it on to use both sides. Isn't it cute?

The sentiment is from Well Scripted Stamp set in the Occasions mini.

Can you believe I made a card without any ribbon and only using one stamp? Crazy!

Sending Love Valentine Album

Here is a Valentine album that I made using the Sending Love Specialty Paper and some new stamp sets from the Occasions Mini. It fits nicely inside this little tin. If you are coming to my class on friday, you will get to make one of your own! Here are some more photos. The first one is of the cover. I used real red card stock as the base. I also used the new Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch to create the main flower. The stamp set is the new With all my Heart set.

When you fold it out, there are 4 panels. Here's what the inside looks like-- I picked some of my favorite pics of my and my hubby from this year and then decorated the pages.

And here is the back side. These little albums are fun and quick to make. The part that took the longest was finding and printing the photos!

If you want to make one of your own and can come by on Friday, sign up for my class today!
