Going, Going, Gone!

Going, Going, Gone!  

Have you guys checked out the Retiring and Clearance sections of the Stampin' Up! website lately?  If not, you might want to do so!!  May 31st is the last day that the retiring items will be available.  After that, they will be gone forever!  SO sad to see SO many of my favs retiring.  

For your convenience, I will list ALL of the retiring stamps, dies, and embellishments here on my blog.  Don't forget to check out the clearance items as well.  There are LOTS of awesome products that are greatly reduced!  

Make sure to use May's Host Code 2MZMMYGW when placing your order, to receive a thank you gift from me at the end of the month.  Questions on how to use the hostess code?  Message me and I'll help you out!  

Hope you all have a WONDERFUL and safe Memorial Day Weekend.

You're Sublime - Random Stamped Background

You're Sublime 
Random Stamped Background

Dimensions: 
Bermuda Bay CS - 4 1/4 x 11 (card base)
Berry Burst CS - 3 x 4
Whisper White CS - 4 x 5 1/4, 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, 3 1/8 x 4 1/8, 
2 7/8 x 3 7/8, 3 x 3, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4, scrap for balloon


I created this FUN card using Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay inks to create a bright and cheery background.  Stamp sets used on this card are You're Sublime, Swirly Bird, and Birthday Banners.  Gonna miss this little toad when he retires at the end of the month!

To create the frame around the toad, I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits.  I really like how the stitching around the frame gives it a more finished look.  The Fine-Tip Glue Pen adds a nice element to the toads eyes, as well as the Clear Wink of Stella on the balloon.  It's amazing how just the smallest of details can make such a big impact on completing the look of the card.

You're Sublime - Paper Piecing

You're Sublime - Paper Piecing 

Dimensions: 
Pool Party CS - 4 1/4 x 11, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
Peekaboo Peach CS - Scrap for stamping
Whisper White CS - 4 x 5 1/4, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, scrap for stamping
Tasty Treats DSP - 1 1/2 x 5 3/8, 1 1/2 x 4


This sweet card was made using the You're Sublime stamp set which is retiring at the end of the month.  I used Clear Wink of Stella and the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to create a shimmery, glossy effect on the windows, bubbles and fish!!  The idea for that technique came from the amazing Jennifer McGuire, once again!!

I used the largest circles from the Layering Circles and Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The enamel shapes I used are from the Brights Enamel Shapes.  To color in parts of the submarine, fish and bubbles, I used Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate, and Basic Grey Stampin' Write Markers.  I used the edge of my Basic Black marker to give a finished edge to all the pieces I cut out.  The papers are from the retiring Tasty Treats DSP.

Thoughts & Prayers - Get Well Soon

Thoughts & Prayers - Get Well Soon

Dimensions: 
Kraft CS - 4 1/4 x 11, 5/8 x 4
Flirty Flamingo CS - 4 x 5 1/4
Very Vanilla CS - 2 7/8 x 3 3/4, 2 1/8 x 3 3/4
Delicate White Doily - Cut in half


Today's card uses the stamp set Thoughts & Prayers, which has been around SU! for a while, but is new to me!  SO thought I would play with it and this is what I came up with.  The first card I made was in Peekaboo Peach, but when I went to make this video, I found out I didn't have enough of the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon.  SO I changed it to Flirty Flamingo instead.  I think I like the Flirty Flamingo version better!! 



I colored in the flowers on the stamp, using Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers.  The sequins used for this card are in the Sprinkles Embellishments that are retiring and are available at a discount while supplies last on my website.  The Kraft CS I used is also retiring (BOO) and is available while supplies last until May 31st.  I am SUPER sad to see this retiring as I love using it once in a while, instead of regular cardstock.

Swirly Bird Card

Swirly Bird Card 
Cased from the NEW 2017-2018 SU! Catalog
Dimensions: 
Peekaboo Peach CS - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 (card base), 
1 3/4 x 1 3/4 (circle die)
Whisper White CS - Large scrap for stamping and die cuts, 
3 3/4 x 5

Thought I would share a cased card from the new 2017-2018 SU catalog.  I just LOVE all the texture on this card and the bright colors from the 2016-2018 In Colors.  The Swirly Bird stamp set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits are quickly becoming one of my fav sets.  

The original card in the catalog uses a stamped sentiment onto Whisper White CS.  Since I didn't have that stamp available, I found one in the Jar of Love stamp set and embossed it on a Peekaboo Peach CS circle and added a Whisper White circle from the Layering Circles Framelits to back it.  Not too shabby!!  Overall, I LOVE the way it turned out and will be looking for another card to case in the near future!

Big on Birthdays Watercolor Card

Big on Birthdays Watercolor Card
Dimensions:
Whisper White CS - 4 1/4 x 11, 2 7/8 x 4 3/8
Melon Mambo CS - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, 1/2 x 2 3/4
Watercolor Paper - 4 x 5 1/4, 2 3/4 x 4 1/4
Scrap watercolor paper to scribble watercolor pencil on

Happy Monday Guys!!  Hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday!  My hubby and I were couch potatoes all day and loved every minute of it!!  

Today's project is a simple, yet beautiful watercolor card using the Big on Birthdays stamp set and Watercolor Pencils.  I took a different approach to adding the watercolor to this card.  I don't know about you, but I have a hard time applying the pencils to my project and adding water.  I just can't seem to get all the pencil marks to completely disappear, which bothers me.  SO I decided to scribble the watercolor pencils onto a separate piece of watercolor paper, then use a paint brush to transfer the color onto the watercolor paper that will be going onto your card.  Easy Peasy!!

You're Sublime - Have a Snappy Day!

You're Sublime - Have a Snappy Day!

Dimensions: 
Basic Black CS - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 3 x 3, 1 x 5 1/2
Real Red CS - 4 x 5 1/4, 3 x 3
Whisper White CS - 3 3/4 x 5 (two, one for stamping, one for inside), 5/8 x 5 1/2
Shimmery White CS - 2 3/4 x 2 3/4

I have another simple, not so simple card for today!  I used the crab stamp from You're Sublime with the sentiment cut off the stamp, to stamp out my background.  It was easy to add the sentiment back on when I stamped out my main image.  I stamped and embossed the crab on Shimmery White CS using VersaMark and the Archival Basic Black stamp pad and colored him in with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.  The Shimmery White CS makes coloring in the crab nice and smooth as the marker doesn't soak into the CS as I am coloring.

I just LOVE the Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White CS's together.  The Real Red Satin Ribbon adds just the right touch to soften the card just a bit.  The Layering Circles Framelits and Stitched Shapes Framelits go perfectly together.  I just can't get enough of them!!

This is a sweet little treat box that I found on my 2nd upline, Angie Juda's website.  It is the PERFECT size to put a Ghirardelli chocolate square in it.  Which is what I am using mine for.  I used the Lift Me Up and Bella & Friends stamp sets, along with the Up & Away Thinlits Dies and the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  I used Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist stamp pads and finished it off with a little Clear Wink of Stella and some Jewels Basic Rhinestones.  SO SO CUTE!!

Early Espresso CS - 4 x 5 1/4, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
So Saffron CS - 3/4 x 3 3/4

Cupcakes and Carousels DSP - 3 7/8 x 5 1/8


Happy Tuesday All!!  Thanks SO much to those who left a comment on my Eastern Medallion flower cards last week!!  I really enjoyed reading your kind words and am happy that you liked the project!!  The winner to receive all 5 cards is Darlene Boardman!!  I'll be sending out the cards this week!!  

Today's card was first created for my Coffee and a Card and my Cocktail and a Card class that I hold in my home each month.  I created it back in March, which used the SAB papers that coordinated with the Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits dies.  BUT because that DSP is no longer available, I brought out my Cupcakes & Carousels DSP to remake the card.  I just LOVE the colors and patterns in this paper stack.  

In addition to the Up & Away Thinlits dies, I used the Layering Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  They are, in my opinion, a must have staple in card making!!  I use them ALL the time!

Foxy Friends

Foxy Friends 
Dimensions
Whisper White CS - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 4 x 5 1/4, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, 
scrap for stamping
Pool Party CS - 4 x 5 1/4, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
A Little Foxy DSP - 3 x 3



Hey Guys!!  Today's project is this super sweet card that I cased from Pinterest.  Of course, I used different stamps, papers and sentiment, but the concept is the same.  For my card, I used A Little Foxy DSP, Foxy Friends stamp set, Layering Circles Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, and Sunshine Sayings Thinlits.  

I love the simplicity of this card.  It is clean, but also has a WOW factor, to me.  I think the little fox from the Foxy Friends is SO adorable and the kitty is pretty darn sweet too!  While it is a simple card, so to speak, I did have to create the frames using the different sized circles for the fox and squares for the kitty.  The stitched frame on both of them adds just a bit of added texture to finish the card off.
