Graceful Glass

These sheets are totally gorgeous. You get two each of 12 designs. The front looks like the joints have been embossed. You color the back and it creates a stunning embellishment for cards and scrapbook pages.

I colored the backside of the vellum with the new Stampin Up Blends and mounted it to a piece of Pool Party so you don't have to color each section. The card base is Marina Mist (retired) with the side embossed with the Petal Pair Embossing folder.

This card would make a lovely Sympathy card, Get Well card, Birthday card or just a note card depending on the sentiment inside.

Until next time have a blessed day and try to stay dry!

Beautiful You

Beautiful You was carried over from the Occasions mini and is so feminine. This card has a Whisper White base with a Bermuda Bay mat from the Magical Designer Paper Series with a Photo corner on the right side.

I cut the girl out and then lined the reverse with Smokey Card Stock and then placed the girl on Dimensionals to give the card some dimension. I added Bermuda Bay rain drops from the retired Umbrella Stamp Set. I do like the way she turned out! Her dress and umbrella was colored with the Light Bermuda Bay Blends.

Until next time!

Shaving Creme!

Years ago the Shaving Creme technique was all the rage. It has since died down some but I found this piece of paper I did years and years ago and the Congrats. I ran the Congrats mat thru the Big Shot using the new Subtle Embossing Folder. BTW that folder makes your paper look like the textured paper Stampin Up carried.

Then I punched the mass of stars on the side and with Dimensionals adhered it to the Shave Creme mat. It was accented using the NEW Faceted Dots from SU -146910.

In case you haven't tried this technique - all you do is line a shallow foil pan with shaving creme then dot different colors of ink on top and using a skewer marble the colors a bit. Lay a sheet of card stock on top making sure it is coated all way; remove it and wipe off all the shaving creme leaving only the colors. Let the card stock dry manually or use a heat gun and you are ready to go!

Until next time!

Tri-Fold Birthday Card

This whimsical card is a tri-fold card. It can be used for any occasion with different papers. I love the design which I saw on Pinterest.

Been thinking we might make this in the next Stamp A Stack! It was a fun card to make and not difficult. Let me hear your opinions.

I guess you noticed I am trying to use some of the retired Designer Series Papers and I really like this paper too. Oh BTW it folds to fit a standard envelope (4.25 x 5.5). I added some crystal/glitter dots for accent.

Until next time!

House Calls

This is the house stamp that is in the Pop On By Stamp Set (146641). The matching die has the Pop Up house in it. There are a lot of possibilities for this set.

This is the first time I have brayered in years so I really need to get back into it. It's a fun technique and makes a lovely sky and foreground. Anyway this is a great set and I hope you will try it.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Impossible Card

I saw this on Lilly Stamps video and had to try it. It is an interesting card but very simple to make. When finished it folds to fit a regular size envelope.

The base is Mossy Meadow (4.25 x 5.5) and the Designer Paper is Share What You Love as well as the stamp set for the flowers! I did add a piece of white paper on the back for any note you might want to send.

Love it. You must give it a try. Email me for the directions or we will do this one at our next Stamp A Stack in July! Any papers would make this card easy for any occasion.

Have a great day!

Until next time!

Blueberry Pickin'

Miss Josie and her mom went Blueberry pickin' at Seaman's Orchard the other day. Josie seems to be enjoying it but I don't think she even likes Blueberries!

Stephanie shared with us and I made some Jello and added the berries. I must say it is quite tasty!

Thank you for stopping by and comments are always welcome.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Mini-Pencil Desktop Holder

This being my first attempt, I used some retired designer paper, Wintergreen with Pool Party and Sage Shadow (retired). It is so very cute and would make a great addition to anyone's desk or counter top!

It would make a good gift item or an addition for personal use. It is made up of 5 varied size boxes in one tray. Hope you like it.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Miss Josie's Shoes

My daughter, Stephanie and her daughter, Josie made these tennis shoes using Sharpies and Alcohol (the rubbing kind)! They really turned out nice. Now they have matching shoes.

It is such a neat idea for a craft. You color with the Sharpie and then take alcohol and drop it on to the shoe and the ink sets and runs a bit to make a neat pattern.

Comments welcome!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Life is a beautiful thing

Using the new Stampin Up Designer Paper Love What You Do. I used the new framelits, Stitched Labels Framelits. The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons and YES I used a piece of retired ribbon to help accent.

I also added Share What You Love Artisan pearls that matched the paper. The card base is Grapefruit Grove. I hope you enjoyed this card and fall in love with the framelit set!

Until next time!
