May Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project

Hello, my crafty friends. With the weekend full of activities, not much time for crafty fun so this is a quick alternate card using the stamp set from the May Paper Pumpkin kit, A Kit In Color, and some scraps of cardstock from my "pile."

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4) in Whisper White cardstock. The rainbow strips are built up from the lower right corner on a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Flirty Flaming cardstock (use strips that are too long, then trim) and layered on a 5 1/4 by 4 piece of Mango Melody cardstock. The sentiment stamp "hey" is inked in the new 2020-22 In Color Misty Moonlight and fussy cut. (I felt that the separation between the two blues was enough for them not to "clash.") 

Give this super simple card a try! 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the May Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog (great project, Sandra!). Welcome one and all.

 
This month's theme celebrates the men in our lives and features products from either the annual catalog or the mini catalog. I was so torn on which stamp set to use so my choice is Lilypad Lake Stamp Set, the coordinating Lakeside dies, and supporting dies from the Seasonal Layers dies, all from the annual catalog.
You may recall that I used the Lilypad Lake Stamp Set for last month's card, but this month I am changing the lake scene to a beach scene with the chair die and drink die from Seasonal Layers. See how easy that was! You can do it!

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.

Easy Handmade Card Featuring Royal Peacock Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. I just wanted to show you this beautiful card using the Royal Peacock Stamp Set/Bundle slated for retirement at the end of this sales period, June 2, 2020 (or while supplies last after May 22) The plan was to make this card in our workshop last month, but that did not happen due to circumstances beyond our control. I know that one of my club members purchased this bundle, but let's go over the measurements and cuts together because at our online workshop this Sunday, we will make a totally different card using the same basic layout. Easy and FUN!!

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 5.5 x 8.5, scored at 4.25) in Bermuda Bay cardstock. The first layer is a straight cut piece of the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper (cut 5.375" x 4") and the second layer is that gorgeous blue sheet from the SDSP (cut with the largest Stitched Rectangle Die). The full peacock stamp is inked with Pretty Peacock (2019-21 in color) and the second stamp of the accent feathers image is inked with Blueberry Bushel (retiring 2018-20 in color). Layer the peacock on a third layer of Pretty Peacock cardstock Stitched Rectangle Die (3d from center) that was embossed with the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder.

The leaves are die cut from the coordinating Noble Peacock Foil Sheets, adhered right behind the peacock and set on the lower left of the card front. Bedazzle with several Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

Important announcement:  This Saturday I am participating in the May Global SU Share Fair as a presenter. I have teamed with fellow demonstrators around the globe to bring Facebook Live video demonstrations into your stamp space this Saturday, May 16.  My time slot is 3:00 p.m. (ET). Our regular online workshop will proceed on Sunday, May 17 at 11:30 a.m. - we will be using the Daisy Lane Bundle/see below.

Joining the Facebook Global SU Share Fair is by invitation only so please PM me that you want to join the group to receive your invitation. You will need to accept the invitation and give my name as the answer to the question to join the group.

May's Online Workshop*
*We will not be able to meet in person again this month (frowny face).

We will be using the Daisy Lane Bundle (p. 23 of the Annual Catalog). If you do not have these, pick out your favorite flower stamps/punches and let's get to crafting.

If you are placing an order for the Daisy Lane Bundle, or anything, be sure to use the May Host Code for a fab surprise this month.

April Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project

Hello, my crafty friends. This week I have designed a super cute card using the beautiful stamp set from the April Paper Pumpkin kit, My Wonderful Family, and some various pieces and parts from my kit.
#paperpumpkin #mywonderfulfamiy #sandee904

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 5.5 x 8.5, scored at 4.25) in Melon Mambo cardstock. The leaves for this large tree is stamped twice in Pear Pizzazz, side-by-side, on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and die cut using the second largest Stitched Rectangle die. I used one of the extra die cut tree trunk/branches piece from the kit. The second layer is Pear Pizzazz cardstock die cut using the largest Stitched Rectangle die.

Next I inked the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz and "cleaned" off the words "life" and "love" to color them with the Melon Mambo Stampin' Writer Marker so the words would stand out when stamped on the piece of Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is secured to an extra piece of the fancy Crushed Curry paper strip. A pop of bling on each end of the sentiment using those Frosted Crushed Curry pearls that came in your kit. Another pop of color with the string of butterflies in Melon Mambo.

Give this super simple card a try!

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Music From The Heart Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. The theme for the April Simple Stamping challenge is birthdays! This simple stamping challenge is to create a card using only stamps, ink and paper! I chose the Music From The Heart Stamp Set since it is chock full of musical images.
#simplestamping

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 5.5 x 8.5, scored at 4.25) in Lovely Lipstick cardstock. I stamped the background images (small heart, musical note) in coordinating ink. The embellishment build is a Whisper White square (2.5), backed with another square (3.25) of 2018-20 in color DSP (all straight cuts, no dies or punches). Here's a pic of the inside:

Give this super simple card a try! You could try it in any color, your choice.

Easy Handmade Card Featuring Painted Poppies Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Either you have a LOT of time to craft now (happy face) or even less time to craft now (frowny face).  Let's take a few minutes for ourselves, gather the supplies listed below and give this card a try.

Three (3) things I love about this card for our #staysafe #stayhome days:

1. Technique. The handmade DSP in the background is created using the monochromatic technique of inking an image with the coordinating ink color (or you can just use Versamark!). So pretty.
2. No special tools or adhesives. Each piece can be cut with a small trimmer or a pair of scissors (or you could use your favorite dies). Regular adhesives, not even one dimensional on this card (but you could if you wanted to!)
3. Coloring. Last but not least, a good bit of coloring using your Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write Markers, Watercolor Pencils or whatever you have available!

(And how about that stamped envelope flap!)

Important Announcement:  This Saturday is the April Global SU Share Fair. I have teamed with fellow demonstrators around the globe to bring a full day of Facebook Live video demonstrations into your stamp space this Saturday, April 25th -- my time slot is 12:15 p.m. I will still hold our online workshop at 1:30 p.m. It will be the same cards so you can attend either one or both! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set (or Butterfly Wishes) and the Butterfly Duet Punch.

Joining the Facebook Global SU Share Fair is by invitation only. So please PM me that you want to join the group to receive your invitation. You will need to accept the invitation to join the group.



Announcing Plans for May's Online Workshop
*I am afraid we will not be able to meet in person again (frowny face), but I am planning well in advance (happy face).

May's workshop will be centered around another stamp set and punch -- the Daisy Lane Bundle (p. 23 of the Annual Catalog). This one is a current bundle so bundle pricing (10% discount). I don't think that many of you have this stamp set/punch yet, but at the bundle pricing it is a little less painful on the wallet. I will circulate full instructions on how to order using the May Host Code for your own stamp set/punch on Friday, May 1. Once you place your online order, I will get to you the card kit packets that will include the cardstock/DSP, ribbon, embellishments, and envelopes at no additional fee.* The "get to you" will be in some manner (either by mail or hand delivery using my new method called "ring and run"). This will be so fun for us all.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: If you do not already have an online account, when you set up your account, PLEASE be sure to NOT click "no contact" as I will not be able to send you your free card kit packets.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Lilypad Lake Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the April Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States  and across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog (great project, Sandra!). Welcome one and all.

This month's theme is "thinking of you" and includes product from either the annual catalog or the mini catalog so my choice is the Lilypad Lake Stamp Set and coordinating Lakeside dies from the annual catalog.

The peaceful images in this stamp set make sending warm and thoughtful wishes more than easy. The choice of the 2018-20 In Color cardstock, inks and Designer Series Paper will allow coordination for a stack of cards without any fuss.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.

Easy Handmade Cards Featuring Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and Tulip Builder Punch

Hello, my crafty friends. Hope everyone is staying safe. As you may know, since our March class was canceled due to Covid19, this past Sunday I held my very first Facebook Live as a "make-up" class. I was super nervous, but I think it went pretty good.

For "homework" I gave everyone a list of instructions on cardstock and cuts, Designer Series Paper and cuts, coordinating ink selections, and embellishment suggestions. I asked everyone to purchase the Timeless Tulips bundle in advance, however, it was not a requirement - any flower stamp set with sentiments would work.

Here are the cards we made together.

These were really quick and easy cards that did not take long to stamp and put together, except for my uber-embarrassing punching mistake and "secret" fix - you will have to watch the video because it is too hard (and funny) to explain! Click this link to my Facebook Live video to check it out.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!.


Stamp On!!

Easy Handmade Card Featuring Butterfly Gala Stamp Set


Hello, my crafty friends. As you may recall, I have recently decided to use punches more and more in my stamping. This week I decided to recreate a card from July when the Butterfly Gala stamp set and Butterfly Duet punch were carried over to the 2019-20 Annual Catalog. I have paired it with the beautiful Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration. (I hope you were able to earn multiple sets of this beautiful DSP!)

The card base is a side fold (cut 5.5 x 8.5, scored at 4.25) Whisper White cardstock. The next layer is Rococo Rose cardstock (cut 5.25 x 4) topped with a piece of the beautiful Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (cut 5 x 3.75). After stamping the butterflies in Tuxedo Black ink, the butterfly wings were stamped with the "fill" images using the Rococo Rose ink. Use the Butterfly Duet to punch out the butterflies and pop them up using dimensionals. I used the 2" Circle punch and the Starburst punch for the main sentiment (also popped up with dimensionals). Both sentiments are from this stamp set (I LOVE THAT!).

The card is finished with a super cute double bow using the Linen Thread and a coordinating gem.

This is really a quick and easy card and was the subject of my "practice" Facebook Live this past Saturday. You should check it out. I did not provide dimensions in the broadcast, but now you have them!

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!.
