You're Sublime - Follow Your Heart

You're Sublime - Follow Your Heart
Dimensions: 
Whisper White CS
5 1/2 x 8 1/2 (card base), 4 x 5 1/4, 3 x 3
scrap for clouds, scrap for templates


Today's project is my FIRST attempt at creating a sponged background using sponge daubers with Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz Inks.  I created a template to create the "grass" and the sky, plus another template to create the clouds in the background using the same Soft Sky ink as I did for the sky. 

The cute little camper is in the You're Sublime stamp set and the clouds are from the Up & Away Thinlits Dies.  I used an Aqua Painter to color in the camper using So Saffron and Watermelon Wonder inks.  The outline of the camper was colored in using the Basic Black Watercolor Pencil and a Blender Pen.  I also used the Blender Pen along with Soft Sky ink to color in the windows on the camper and the camper's door.  To complete the camper, I added a bit of shimmer with the Clear Wink of Stella.

Bella & Friends - Thank You Card

Bella & Friends - Thank You Card

Dimensions: 
Smoky Slate CS - 4 1/4 x 11, 3 x 3, 1 1/2 x 5
Pool Party CS - 4 x 5 1/4, 3 1/2 x 3 1/2
Whisper White CS - 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
A Little Foxy DSP - 3 7/8 x 4 1/8


I just can't get enough of the Bella & Friends stamp set.  She is SO dang cute!!  I used the A Little Foxy DSP, some Smoky Slate Stitched Ribbon and a little Wink of Stella to finish off the card.  The collar and heart were colored in using a Blender Pen along with Pool Party and Calypso Coral inks.  

To create the shimmer on the Pool Party scalloped circle, I just brushed on my Clear Wink of Stella.  Kind of looks like Glimmer Paper, but more shimmery, than glittery!  LOL  The Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits work SO perfectly together.  It's like they were made for each other!  Crazy!  lol

Pun Intended Square Card

Pun Intended Square Card

Dimensions: 
Basic Black CS - 4 1/4 x 8 1/2, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
Delightful Dijon CS - 4 x 4, 3 x 3 (scalloped square), scrap to stamp and cut out bee
Urban Underground DSP - 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
Whisper White CS - 2 1/2 x 2 1/2

 

How does one follow up the GORGEOUS quilted cards from yesterday??  With a simple, yet sweet bee card!  LOL  I really like the way this turned out and I was not a huge fan of the Urban Underground DSP....till now!  As long as I am admitting things, I really didn't love the Delightful Dijon paper either.  It's too mustard-y for my liking.  HOWEVER the two together...I LOVE!!  

This is a basic 4 1/4" square card.  I used the Layering Squares Framelits for the scalloped square and the Basic Black square on top.  Of course, I had to use the square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I just love the finished edge it gives to the square and the way it frames in the sentiment.  


This SUPER CUTE bee stamp is in the Pun Intended stamp set, that is available at a discount to HOSTS when you host a party!  You can have a party for one, by placing a $150 all by yourself.  OR you can host a party on FB, in your home or in mine if you are local.  Although, I wouldn't be opposed to flying out to, like, say Florida or Arizona to party.... just saying!  LOL  

During Sale-A-Bration, when your party reaches $250, you get an ADDITIONAL $25 in Host Rewards, which gives you a total of $50 in Host Rewards!  You only have till March 31st to take advantage of this offer though, SO if you are thinking about it, contact me ASAP and let's talk!!

If you were unable to make it to my Facebook Live last night, that's OK!!  I have the video up and ready to go!  It LOOKS like it is a lengthy video, but the actual project didn't take too long.  Towards the end of it, it's just chatter!  lol

I have tried to provide the dimensions for each of the cards above.  The first card is the one that we created on FB Live.  I will try to create a video on how to create the star quilts and post it here when it is finished.  There are LOTS of pieces for those two cards!  LOL  

I used the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and Sunshine Wishes Dies on each of the cards.  To give it a "quilted" look, I used the Hexagons Embossing Folder.  LOVE how it gives a puffy quilted look!!  The paper is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.  LOVE LOVE LOVE these papers!!  Especially the tiny flowers print!!  Perfect for a "quilted" look.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions!!  I'd be happy to help!

March Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project - Card

March Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project

Dimensions: 
Very Vanilla CS - 4 1/4 x 11 (score at 4 1/4), 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 (circle)
Peekaboo Peach CS - 4 x 4
Sweet Sugarplum CS - 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 (scalloped circle)



These were SUPER fun cards to create with the March Paper Pumpkin Kit, as an alternative project.  I just LOVE how the bunny ended up looking like a lion/kitty when I left off the bunny ears and used the mouth with the heart shaped nose.  The scalloped circle ended up looking like a lion's mane.  

I used the large bunny ears as petals and the Hexagons Embossing folder made it look like it was quilted.  The first one I created was the Peekaboo Peach card, but when I was creating the Sweet Sugarplum card, I thought I would see what embossing it would look like and ended up LOVING it!!

This is my very FIRST shaker card!!  YAY ME!!  For some reason, I have been afraid to make one of these, but decided to go ahead and take the plunge and make one!!  Now that I have made one, I will be making LOTS more!  lol

I just love the little fishes from the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars Framelits.  They are SO cute!  Lately, I just can't get enough of the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.  I used So Saffron and Pool Party DSP for this card.  I created the frame by using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  To see how I created the frame for my shaker card, make sure to watch the video!!  It's a bit long, BUT I promise it will be well worth the time it takes to watch it!

FB Live Pretty Kitty Purse

FB Live Pretty Kitty Purse


Dimensions: 
Whisper White CS - 7 x 10
Blushing Bride CS - 2 1/4 x 2 1/4
Shimmery White CS - 2 1/4 x 2 1/4
Subtles Designer Series Paper, Blushing Bride - 2 1/2 x 5 1/2, 2 1/2 x 2 3/4

For complete instructions on how to create this purse using the Gift Bag Punch Board, please watch the video below.  


Isn't this just the sweetest little purse?  Of course, I think that the little kitty from the Pretty Kitty stamp set makes it that much cuter!!  I ran across a tutorial on Pinterest to create this bag, but it was for a backpack.  SO I added some Blushing Bride Stitched Satin Ribbon at the top to create a little purse, instead of making it into a backpack (which was cute too!).  

Did you know that Stampin' Up! carries this sweet little print in their Designer Series Paper Stacks?  I just LOVE these paper stacks and LOVE that they come in ALL of the colors that SU! has.  The are SO versatile and the prints are perfect for cards and 3D projects too.  

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to create this little cutie!!  When I was searching Pinterest for inspiration, I searched specifically for something that used the Gift Bag Punch Board, but that used it in a different way from how it was created to be used.  I cannot remember where I found the tutorial for the original backpack, but if you search Pinterest, I am sure you will find it!!

Avant Garden - Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 488

Avant - Garden 
Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 488

Dimensions: 
Crumb Cake CS - 4 1/4 x 11 (score at 5 1/2)
Whisper White CS - 4 x 5 1/4, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 (large oval), 1 1/2 x 4 3/4 (tear top and bottom of strip)
Peekaboo Peach CS - 3 3/4 x 5
Pool Party CS - 3 x 4 (large scalloped oval)


Hey Guys!!  Today's project is the simple, yet sweet card that I created using the Avant - Garden stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE with a $50 purchase only till March 31st.  SO if you want it, you only have a couple of weeks left to get it!!  

I really like the soft colors of the Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Whisper White together.  Originally, I chose these colors for this card because I was going to use the Cool Treats DSP, but decided to just use cardstock instead of the DSP.  The Clear Wink of Stella gave a soft shimmer to the flower and completed the card!!  

The Falling Petals embossing folder is quickly becoming one my fav folders to use for my cards.  I just love the added texture it gives.  Of course the Layering Ovals Framelits are also one of my favs to use on my cards and was PERFECT for this card sketch, even though the sketch was shown with a rectangle for the image piece.

Succulent Framelits - Thinking of You

Succulent Framelits - Thinking of You

Dimensions: 
Basic Black CS - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 (score at 4 1/4 for card base), scrap for flower center
Whisper White CS - 4 x 5 1/4, 3 3/4 x 5 (inside of card), 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 (for flower if no glimmer paper)

Sending Love DSP - 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 (you need 4)
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper - 2 3/4 x 2 3/4

Pool Party CS with Pool Party Designer Series Paper Stack

Blushing Bride CS with Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper Stack

OH MY GOODNESS!!  I just LOVE the way this card turned out!!  I loved it SO much, I created it using several different colors/papers.  The original card idea came from the ever so creative Karen Pedersen with CTMH.  I changed up the papers, added some ribbon and a Thinking of You sentiment from the Window Shopping stamp set.  I mentioned it was from the Sunshine Sayings set in my video, but it is not!    

I just keep coming up with ways to use the Succulent Framelits on my cards.  This is certainly becoming one of my favorite go to die sets!  The first card and the one I demonstrate in my video is created using the Sending Love DSP from the Occasions catalog.  I wanted to find a way to use this paper without making it a Valentine's Day card and I think I succeeded with this one.  The other two cards use the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stacks.  LOVE these paper stacks!!  The come in 12x12 stacks with 4 different prints of 10 different colors.

Up & Away Tea Bag Holder

Up & Away Tea Bag Holder

Dimensions: 
Night of Navy CS - 3 x 11, 3 x 4
Whisper White CS - 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
Carried Away DSP - 3 x 3 3/4, 3 x 1 3/4, 3 x 1 1/4, 3 x 1 
Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper - 2 3/4 x 2 3/4




Isn't this just the CUTEST little Tea Bag Holder ever??!!  I was browsing Pinterest for a 3-D project and ran across the tutorial for this over on the Pootles Papercraft website.  I absolutely fell in love with it and decided it would be for today's project!!  

The original tutorial for the envelopes that hold the tea bags used the Envelope Punch Board, but I don't have it.  I did however have the Gift Box Punch Board and noticed that it had the same punch.  SO with a little creative measuring, I was able to use Gift Box Punch Board!!  YAY ME!!  LOL  I used the Carried Away DSP in the SAB catalog along with the Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits Dies.  LOVE LOVE LOVE this set!!!  When you purchase the Lift Me Up bundle, you are under $5 away from earning a FREE Sale-A-Bration item, which can be used to get either the Carried Away DSP OR the Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack where the Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper comes from.  


The video is a bit lengthy, BUT I promise you, it is well worth the time to watch it!!  Make sure to "SUBSCRIBE" to my YouTube channel to receive notifications when I post new videos as I am adding 4-5 new videos each week!!  In addition to the video tutorial I made, I also have printable/downloadable instructions below the Supplies Used.
