Birthday Bonanza

Today's card was cased from Ratsis. another demonstrator, and features the cute Birthday Bonanza stamps and matching dies. This card will fit into a #10 business size envelope. The train cars were made using the new Label punch and was cut in half to make the cars. I used a 1/2 inch circle punch to make the wheels. The stamps, dies and punch can be found in our current mini catalog.
It's such a happy card, isn't it? I used Bermuda Bay, Poppy Parade,  Mango Melody,  Daffodil  Delight, and Gray Granite inks. 
If you don't already have a demonstrator,  please contact me today or shop my online store. There's only a few weeks left of our Sale-a-bration promotion, so now's your chance to get products free with a qualifying order. 
Thanks for stopping by today and and have a great day!

Celebrate Positive Thoughts

Today's card uses a beautiful set in our mini catalog. Positive Thoughts has pretty florals that jump off the card and say "here we are". And we now have matching dies that you can get from our Coordination products release. I used the flower  and butterfly die here after I stamped them on mango melody cardstock.
My card base is Soft Seafoam with just a sliver of black peeking from behind the focal images. I sponged Daffodil Delight in the upper left area to give the leaves a softer look. The sentiment is from the Band Together stamp set. 
I believe I'll be giving this set a lot of love. ♥️

Poppies Everywhere!

Hello friends! Welcome to my blog.  Today I would like to show you a great suite from our new Mini catalog.  Peaceful Poppies is amazing! These beautiful flowers pop with bright colors and the entire suite will take your breath away! Here's my card:

 This is a fun Z fold card and I've used the designer paper in the suite, along with the stamps. The front of the card shows off the back side of one of the papers, with a square center design. I love the splashes of color; this is a great stamp to add some interest to your projects.
This is the inside of the card. I used 2 left over pieces to make a decorative edge and there's still plenty of room to write a note to the recipient, or stamp a greeting.

If you don't already have a demonstrator, I would love to send you a catalog. Or, click on the catalogs found on the right sidebar.

The So Saffron card base works perfectly with the Gray Granite panel, embossed with the new Stone embossing folder.  Such texture!  It's amazing.  There's a little tree in this set, but I decided the top of the tree made a perfect garden.  I just stamped way down at the bottom half of my Whisper White panel, and used various colors of our Stampin' Blends to make the flowers.  Her kimono is colored with dark and light Daffodil delight; the umbrella is dark and light Calypso Coral.  I used dark and light Real Red and Gray Granite for the temple.  The clouds were made by sponging a little pool party on a scalloped cut out piece, at various angles.

"Today is a day for new beginnings". What a perfect sentiment for the start of a brand new year! Happy New Year everyone! May 2020 be your best year ever!

Good Morning Magnolia x 2

Yesterday, I showed you the large magnolia in our Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  Today, it's all about the little magnolia bud.  I love to see new buds on flowers, don't you?  They seem to be so full of life, just getting ready to open and expose all their full glory. I often buy flowers with a lot of buds, just so I can watch the progress.  Here's my card.
Using the same designer series paper, Magnolia Lane, I chose another striped pattern in Mossy Meadow and white.  If you look closely, you'll see that the white in this paper has a textured look.  I love that organic feel to it.  This blossom wasn't actually stamped; it was cut out from the designer series paper, using the Magnolia Memory dies. The only stamping done here was the sentiment and the magnolia blooms, stamped with Petal Pink but stamped off once, to create the light background. The sentiment was cut out using our Oval Framelits, as was the background layer, in Petal Pink card stock. A small piece of our Organdy Striped Ribbon, in Petal Pink, was tied into a bow and adhered using a couple of glue dots.  To finish it off, I used our gold Metallic Pearls.  Another quick card, taking almost no time at all. 

Good Morning Magnolia can be purchased right here at my online store. The stamp set and the dies come in a bundle, and you save 10% if you order the bundle.  The order # is 151087, and during July, we have our BONUS DAYS.  For every $ 50 you spend, before tax & shipping, you'll receive a coupon worth $ 5 that you can use in August.  Just be sure to include your email address when you order, so the coupon can be emailed to you.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my card. Let me know what you think. I love to read your comments.  Have a great day!

Good Morning Magnolia

Hello !

Good Morning Magnolia is a beautiful stamp set in our annual catalog. It features some wonderful sentiments in pretty fonts (I'm all about the fonts).  The large magnolia flower really becomes the focal point of your project.  Today's card is paired with the matching designer series paper called Magnolia Lane.  This card was easy to color, using our Stampin' Blends, but you could also use our Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen if you wish.  Here's my card.
 I used Memento black ink to stamp the image onto our Whisper White card stock.  I then just lightly colored the petals in center of the flower with my Petal Pink Stampin' Blend marker.  I used my Crushed Curry Stampin' Blend for the center, and Pear Pizzaz, light and dark blends for the leaves. Because magnolias usually are white with a deep pink or coral center, this large flower colors up in a jiffy! It only took me about 10 minutes to do the entire flower.  I cut out the flower by hand, another quick task, before I realized that I actually do own the matching framelit dies!  Oh well, it's a good thing I like to use my paper snips.  I used Mossy Meadow card stock for my base, and a 2-1/2 inch strip of the designer series paper down the middle.  I stamped Hello from the stamp set in Mossy Meadow and added a few of our metallic pearls.

You can order this stamp set as a bundle with the framelits, and save 10%.  The product number is 151087 and can be ordered right here from my blog.  Just click the link for my online store, found on the lower right hand side of this page.  During July, we have BONUS DAYS, which means you get a $ 5 coupon to use in August, for every $ 50  you spend.  Just make sure you enter your email address, so the coupon can be emailed to you.

If you don't already have a demonstrator, I would be happy to send you a catalog. Our Holiday catalog will be available soon, so add your name to my mailing list by contacting me today. 

It was so much fun coloring this magnolia, and in no time at all, I had a nice card.  Let me know what you think. I love to read your comments.  Have a super day!
