Delicate Lace Thank You Card and a Little Sneak Peek

I'm back!  Starting to play with all the "new" product that has been waiting for me for weeks!  When I ordered the Delicate Lace dies I pictured using the die like this!  It makes such a gorgeous edge!


My card base is Whisper White Thick.  I added a layer using Purple Posey, one of the new In Colors, adding texture to the layer by embossing it with the Subtle 3D embossing folder.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the Delicate Lace panel.


The frame that I die cut is the sneak peak -- it is a die set from a Halloween Suite -- Ornate Frames.  I stamped in Basic Gray Ink the "Thanks" greeting from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  I used dies from several sets to place behind the greeting --Botanical Tags, Frosted Bouquet, and Lovely Flowers.  If you don't want (insert shocked gasp) to purchase, or don't already have all those you could use Frosted Bouquet exclusively and get a very similar look.  The leaves are die cut from Soft Sea Foam card stock.  I used some threads from a deconstructed piece of Metallic Edge Ribbon wrapped and tucked behind the leaves and greeting panel.


Finished it off by adding a few Pearl Basic Jewels and colored the little flowers with Wink of Stella -- it's all in the details!

Delicate Lace, Purple Posey, Whisper White

It was so much fun putting this card together!  Really made me happy, and it's cheaper than therapy!
Hope you like it as well, thank you so much for looking!  I'd appreciate you choosing me as your demonstrator when you order your Stampin' Up! supplies.  You can shop 24/7 from my online store. Be sure to use my August Host Code Z3RUATVA!

Happy Stampin'

Bridal Shower Card & Sneak Peek

Hi!  Long time no see.  I've had a crazy year so far, spending weeks and weeks away from home helping my mom and dad buy a new place, downsize, sort, pack, move and sell a house they lived in for over 50 years. Bittersweet. But now I'm back in my own stamping space and excited to share a card I made for a lovely young woman who is marrying the son of one of my very best friends. 


I love a simple card with lots of white space and this is the epitome of that!  I started with a base card using Whisper White Thick Card Stock.  I cut a Whisper White scallop square using the Layering Squares dies,  a smaller Whisper White square cut with a die from the Stitched Shapes set.  The heart is cut from Silver Glimmer Paper using the Stitched Be Mine dies.



I stamped a those tiny circles in a few places -- it's from the Artisan Textures set and is a favorite of mine.  The greeting is from Itty Bitty Greetings.  They are both stamped using Delicata Metallic Ink in Silvery Shimmer.  It is in the 2019 Holiday Catalog and will be available to you beginning September 4.  It is a beautiful silver -- enjoy the sneak peek!


I had some scrap threads from another project sitting on my desk.  I took a few inches of Metallic Edge Ribbon, cut off one edge and stripped off some threads to fringe the ribbon.  The threads are shimmery and silky and perfect to wrap and put behind the heart.  I couldn't resist adding some rhinestones to finish it off

Thank you so much for looking!  I'd truly appreciate you selecting me to order Stampin' Up! product through.  You can order the products I've used today through my Stampin' Up! 24/7 online store -- using the August host code Z3RUATVA for the best deal!

Cheers!

Be Mine Heart Card

Hi again!  I'm so excited to start sharing some Valentine's cards.  This first one was fun to make, I used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies from the just released Occasions Catalog.  It's available with a coordinating stamp set in the Meant to Be Bundle giving you a 10% discount.




Here are the details

Base: 4 1/4x 11 Whisper White Card Stock, score in half

Layer 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 Blushing Bride Card Stock

From Blushing Bride cut the largest heart, use only the thin scalloped border

From Lovely Lipstick cut the same largest heart, use only the center heart

From Blushing Bride Card Stock cut the heart border 3 times

I used a scrap piece of Vellum Card Stock, using the Lovely Lipstick heart I cut a slightly larger heart




Arrange the 3 heart borders to be as close together without overlapping (I used a post-it-note along the two sides to hold them in place.  

Apply Mono Adhesive to the scalloped heart and lay it over the heart borders then carefully trim away the hearts that hang over. 

Glue the Vellum heart the to back then place the Lovely Lipstick Heart behind those layers using Dimensionals to hold it in place.

Using Basic Gray Ink I stamped repeatedly the "sent with love" phrase from Itty Bitty Greetings, sometimes stamping without reinking.

Loop some Rose Metallic Thread and attach with a Glue Dot then place the heart.

I added a couple little hearts in the bottom corner, putting  a tiny Basic Pearl Jewel on the larger heart.


It was a fun card to make!

All of these supplies can be purchased through my online store.  I'd love to be your source for your Stampin' Up! supplies.  It's Sale-a-bration time which means that for eery $50 in product you get to choose a free set from the Sale-a-bration CatalogBe sure to use my January Host code QFU7KRX7 (when prompted online) if your order is under $150.

Happy New Year! Sale-a-bration & Occasions Catalog Launch Tomorrow

Happy New Year!  I've got a card to share with you today, but before I get to that I want to let you know that the new Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration launch tomorrow. I can show you these covers but I have to wait until tomorrow to link to the contents.



Details: For every $50 in product you order you get to choose a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  If you were to order $250 in product you will get to pick 5 free items, you would get $25 (10% hostess benefits) AND you will get an additional $25 to spend on hostess.  Here is a look at how it breaks down


Here is my favorite option.  If you want the Starter Kit and all the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator (with no further obligation):

Option 1 you get $175 in product (your choice) for just $99 with free shipping.
Option 2 get $175 in product (your choice) and the exclusive Craft & Carry Tote (valued at $50) for $129 with free shipping.  There is an introduction video below




Wow!  So much happening today and tomorrow.  Here is a card for your to enjoy while you are making your wishlist!

I used the First Frost stamp set and the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.  I'm excited that this Holiday Catalog item will be carried over.  But, if you want the Bundle saving of 10% you need to order today.


This is a very neutral card and I'm using it for a wedding shower I'm attending.  I started with aVery Vanilla Thick card stock base.  Used the Pinewood Planks embossing folder to emboss a Very Vanilla layer and added that you yet another Very Vanilla layer. 


I stamped the flower images in Soft Suede on scraps of Very Vanilla paper and used the Frosted Bouquet Framelits dies to cut them out.  Did you notice that there are two identical dies for the smaller flower?  One pass through my Big Shot and the cutting is done! The leaves and springs and the label were also cut from the Framelits.  I added some gold Metallic Pearls and some loops of Gold Metallic Thread. The greeting is from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and was stamped with Soft Suede ink.


After taking most of the photos I decided to add a touch of Wink of Stella to the edges of the flowers. I love how when added to Soft Suede it takes on a antique coppery look.


I hope you enjoy this card!  I love to read your comments.

All the products for this card can be purchased on my online store.  Be sure to use my January Host code QFU7KRX7 (when prompted online) if your order is under $150. If your order is $150 you get Host Benefits!  I'd love to be your source for Stampin' Up! products.   Be sure to check out items retiring today and the Clearance Rack.

Happy Stampin!
