Beautiful Birthday

Today's card is a combination of old and new products.  I've been doing the daunting task of reorganizing and sorting through years of products in my craft room.  I have so many retired items that I need to either give away or sell.  I came across this beautiful 12x12 piece of designer series paper from long ago.  I'm sorry but I don't remember the name, but I knew I loved it.  It just so happens that the colors in the paper match perfectly with some new products we have in our annual catalog right now. So, I combined the paper with a new stamp and die set bundle, ribbon and Stampin' Blends.

The card base was also laying at the edge of my desk, and it wasn't even a full sheet.  It was a black piece that measured 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 and was already scored at 1-1/4.  This was the perfect size to add a piece of 4 x 5-1/4 designer paper and adhere it to the 1-1/4 side.  This makes the paper stand out as the card "front" and when you open it, you are greeted with the other side of the paper. I used the beautiful Spotlight on Nature Dies to make the sentiment circle.  That pretty little daisy is from an old Paper Pumpkin stamp set as well as the sentiment itself.  I colored the daisy with Daffodil Delight, Peach Pie and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.  Those little dots of gold were made using our Metallic Enamel Effects Basics.  I actually squeezed drops of all 3 colors in the set (gold, copper and silver) onto my Silicone Mat and let them dry overnight.  In the morning, I had 30 beautiful little embellishments! All you need is Tombow Glue to add to your project. A piece of Bordered Ribbon in Peach Pie accents the focal image.


 I like to decorate the inside panels of my cards when I can.  When I cut the 12 x 12 designer paper into several 4 x 5-1/4 pieces, I had several little 1 inch pieces left to decorate the inside.  I'll be making three more of these cards, although I might change up the focal point image.

You can re-create this card in no time.  Go ahead! Cut up that retired paper and dust off your old stamps and use them.  I know I'm a paper hoarder and I really should practice what I preach.  I will admit though, that it felt good after I made this card and I'm inspired to make more.

So, tell me, when you clean your craft room, do you make discoveries of items you forgot you had? Isn't it like Christmas or your birthday all over again? 😉 The only problem I have is I get so sidetracked it takes me months to get the job done! 😄  Leave me a comment and tell me what your best craft room organization tip is. I could sure use some tips! 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you enjoyed your visit. Until next time, enjoy your day!

Creativity Now

 This past Saturday I was one of many demonstrators from around the world who took part in the online event called Creativity Now. This event is hosted by Stampin' Up! for the last 3 years and it's full of creative fun, make and takes, and sneak peeks of products that will be in the soon to be released Mini catalog.  We also had a chance to pre-order the Winterly Tree Tops suite and we made some projects that other demonstrators designed.  We got to watch them make it, then they did it a second time and we created along with them.

Here's a sneak peek of the Winterly Tree Tops suite.  It has a beautiful stamp set, matching dies, beautiful 12 x 12 designer papers, the Birch 3D embossing folder, some gems and 3 rolls of colored twine.  The gems and twine match the colors in the paper.The bundle is available for those that may not want all the other products that are in the suite. The bundle is the stamp set and matching dies, and they are priced at a 10% discount if you purchase them as a bundle.  Here's a sneak peek of the Winterly Tree Tops Bundle.


We made 3 cards and a gift box using these new products.

I colored the birds with our Ivory Stampin' Blends and Cherry Cobbler for the berries and Copper clay for the branches.  Pecan Pie for the little pussy willows.
Here's a closeup of these cute little birds.
The die was used for the frame of the card and was cut out of Basic Gray cardstock. The bird was colored using a combination of Daffodil Delight and Peach Pie Stampin' Blends. We saved the negative of the pine die to use as a masking stencil on the next card.  
We took the negative cut out from the pine die placed it on a white layer. We blended Mossy Meadow around the edges to make this frame. Then we turned it 180 degrees and used the leftover ink on our blending brush to make the lighter image.  I decided to dress up the sentiment label using the same technique.
My bluebirds just had to sparkle, so I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the birds and the berries.
Using a Scalloped Gift Card box, we added some copper Metallic Effects on top then cut out the sprig twice and glued it together to form a wreath.  
Those gold and copper beads are actually more of our Metallic Effects. Just squeeze a little and let it dry overnight.  I love the detail!

The Creativity Now event lasted 4 hours.  Four hours of new sneak peeks, creative talent and design, and we even learned a thing or two on how some of the new products were designed for the new Mini catalog. That catalog will be available soon so be sure to get added to my email list so I can ensure one comes to your house!  Click the Request Catalogs tab above to be added, and I'll even send you our current Annual catalog now.

Please leave me a comment because I'd love to hear from you!  Thanks for stopping by today.
Enjoy your day!

What's Moo With You?

 I love that statement "what's moo with you"?  I finally had a chance to play with our adorable Cutest Cow bundle. Don't you just want to hug this little cow? 


I made this card to participate in a swap and the theme was "animals or bugs".  I immediately thought it was a perfect time to use this set since I had not done so before.  There's a cow builder punch that is included in the bundle and although I didn't use it this time, I will do so soon.

I hope the recipient will like what I made.  I think it's cute, don't you?

Winterly Tree Tops Sneak Peek

 Today I am showing you a sneak peek of some new Online Exclusive products that will be available on July 3rd.  Winterly Tree Tops is a great stamp set with beautiful birds and it has matching dies.  The designer series paper is also very nice.  Here's a card I created with this suite of products:


I will be attending Creativity Now on June 22.  This is a yearly online stamp class with hundreds of other demonstrators. We always have a good time, and we will be using all of the products in the Winterly Tree Tops suite.  While I can't show you the stamps, dies and paper just yet, you may get a nice idea about now lovely the paper is.  I used Misty Moonlight and Pecan Pie cardstock and stamped the sentiment with Misty Moonlight ink.  A few sprinkles of Loose Frosted Dots are added for texture.  I will be sharing the projects we made after the event is over.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy your day!

Spotlight on Nature

 Today I am showing you a few cards I made using the "Stack, Cut & Shuffle" technique and the Spotlight on Nature stamp set and die bundle.  Not only is the technique fun (see my previous post on that), but I am in love with this bundle of great stamps and dies.  Here's my cards:


Aren't these pretty?  I love using this technique to create 3 cards using one cutting pass on the paper trimmer.  I used the Hello, Irresistible 6 x 6 paper pack and cut 3 pieces down to 3-1/2 x 5. I made 2 cuts in an angled direction then shuffled the papers so I got 3 different designs for each card.

I colored the flower and butterflies with our Stampin' Blends in Dark & Light Flirty Flamingo and Dark & Light Daffodil Delight.  I used our Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.

I'll be back soon with a sneak peek of some new Online Exclusive products available the first week of July.  Christmas in July?  Yes please!

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy your day!
