A Happy Hello MOJO485

a-happy-hello-mojo485

I’m ready for Spring, not even a month away.   We have had all the snow I want to handle so I’ve made a nice bright card with Spring in mind

I created this card for this week’s MOJO design. Maybe a little too bright but having a class Saturday and they will let me know for sure.  That’s what I love about my customers, they don’t hold back…but are kind in their comments.  We learn from each other.

Measurements and products used:

  1. Night of Navy Card Stock  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded for Base
  2. So Saffron Card Stock 5 1/4 x 4
  3. Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series paper Cut 4 1/2 x 3 3/4
  4. Night of Navy Card Stock Strip   4 1/2 x 1/2
  5. Banners Framelits on a scrap piece of So Saffron Card Stock   (I used the 3rd framelit in)
  6. Scrap pieces of WhisperWhite Cardstock for Stampin’Up!s Petite Petals which I stamped using Night of Navy and Watermelon Wonder Ink.  Use the Petite Petals Punch.
  7. Use the Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine for a nice bow on top

Hope you liked my card.  Hopefully, I’ll get another card posted this upcoming week.  Back in treatment this week so cross your fingers I don’t get sick and will be able to stamp my heart away this week.   A couple of classes I need to get ready for next month.

Thank You Watercolor Cat in Chair

thank-you-watercolor

Great Thank You Card using Watercolor and Brayering the Irresistibly Floral Speciality  Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up!   Color choices are endless for this card.  I chose the Sweet Sugarplum for my braying and did my watercoloring with Soft Suede, Sweet Sugarplum and So Saffron.

  1. Card base is 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 folder in half using Soft Suede
  2. First Layer is Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock   4 x 5 1/4
  3. Next layer is the Floral Speciality Designer Series Paper cut at 5 x 3 3/4.   (This paper comes in 6 different designs for 2 sheets of each)  I’ll attach a link to the images later down the end.   The Designer Paper comes white with a embossing design.  I used our Sponge Brayers to get the Sweet Sugarplum color.  Just roll in ink then roll on your paper until you get desired color.  Write off with paper towel to get the white embossed images to show brighter.
  4. Cut another piece of Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock  2 1/4 x 3 1/4.
  5. Cut a piece of Watercolor paper 2 x 3 and stamp your chair with cat from Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set  Mediterranean Moments using StazOn Ink.  Watercolor as desired using your ink pads and aqua painters
  6. Using a scrap of watercolor, stamp greeting.  I used Thank You from Stampin’ Up!s Stamp Set  Gift of Love.  Punch out using a label punch.  Unfortunately, I used a retired punch but we have several other punches that work.

Images are below. Use Item # to link to online store to view images you would like to see

Get Well Wishes GDP074

 

get-well-wishes-gdp074

Another Card I created using a Global Design project layout.  I find it so easy to use a design already created then i just put my own colors, papers, stamps, etc and come up with a completely different card.     Here’s the image that I copied.

This card can be any greeting you would like.  That’s what I like about it…any occasion.

Supplies I used are all from our Stampin’ Up! Catalogs

  1. Base Card is a 8 1/2 x 11  piece of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock cut in half to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 folder
  2. Next layer is piece of Sahara Sand Card Stock  5 1/4 x 4
  3. Top layer is our Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper  5 x 3 3/4
  4. Next is the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  I cut that piece of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock to 2 x 3.  This size fits perfectly in the Topper Punch.
  5. Layer that with Whisper White Card Stock using Layering Ovals Framelits.  I sponged around the edged with Rich Razzleberry ink to give it some depth. Then attach to Topper Punch piece
  6. Now for that gorgeous Butterfly.  I stamped the butterfly using a stamp from Stampin’ Up!s Papillon Popourri Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry and then immediately covered with Clear Embossing Powder and heated with my heating tool.  Probably does not show too well on Card but this gives the butterfly a nice shiny look.   Punch that out with Stampin’Up!s Elegant Butterfly punch.  To finish the butterfly, I added some Rhinestones colors with a permanent marker.
  7. Finish this off by wrapping some Gold Meallic Thread around fingers, till you get a few strands then using a glue dot attach to your oval white piece.  Then place the butterfly on top with a Stampin’ Up! dimensional.
  8. Now just stamp your greeting on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Rich Razzleberry ink and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.

Now for images of the products I used.  Just clink on the item # and you will go directly to my online store to see images.

Any question, please contact me at eileenfrost@msn.com or just reply to this post

Please share with friends if you liked my card.    You can also Shop anytime 24/7 if you need to order something

Enjoy your day

Gift bag for my Swap

gift-bag-2016

HI Folks

I haven’t been posting, busy with Craft Fairs, Christmas, etc but thought I’d take a minute to post this bag I created for a Christmas swap..   I used local craft store white bag, (very inexpensive especially with coupon) added some Designer Paper, retired Stars, and a tag using Stampin’ UP! Jar of Cheer Stamp Set.  Bag was a hit.  Just a little extra goes a long way.

I received my preorder for the upcoming Occasions catalog that will be available on Jan 4th, 2017.  I’m going to try to make some cards to share with you but not 100% I can take the time.    I have company coming, granddaughter with boyfriend from Chicago, and I try to get as much time with her as possible….only get to see her a couple times a year.  Also, I do volunteer taxes for AARP and training is coming up the first of the year so need to get studying for that.   Busy Busy but  I love to be busy.

That’s for stopping by.  I will post a sneak peak of my preorder in a couple of day.

Enjoy your upcoming Holiday/Christmas.

Eileen

With Heartfelt Sympathy

withheartfeltsympathy

Great quick and simple card…..that’s what I love.

You could use any greeting on this card.  Stamp, Embossing and Assemble

Putting your card together

  1. Cut Stampin’ UP! Cucumber Crush Cardstock base 8 1/2 x 11 and score at 5 1/2.  For the layer of Cumbumber Crush Cardstock, Cut a  piece at 3 1/4 x 2 3/4.    Cut a piece of Gold Foil 3 1/2 x 3.  And for the Designer Series Paper, I cut 4 x 5 1/4 using the Stampin’ UP! Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper   (You probably can’t see on this image buy there are foil highlights on the flowers that coordinate with the foil sheets.
  2. Now that we have our pieces cut.  Assembly by layering the Designer Paper on the Base Card, then center the Gold Foil Paper in the Center
  3. To stamp the image from Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Sympathy, you will take the embossing buddy and swipe this piece of cardstock so your embossing powder will not spread all over.   Stamp your image using Versamark ink and immediately add your Copper Embossing Powder and heat with your Heat Tool.   Love the effect!
  4. Just add a saying to the inside and maybe stamp a little something on your envelope and you are all done.  Bet that won’t take you anymore than a couple of minutes.  Love it!

Supplies I used:   Click on Item # below

Hope you like this card….remember you can use any greeting, saying or actually image on that center piece of Cardstock to make this card your own.   Best part, it is quick and simple.

Enjoy your Day

Water Bottle Topper

lions-water-bottlelion-bottle-template

I am coordinating a Craft Fair for the Windham Lions Club on Saturday, October 22nd  in Windham to raise money for the Windham Lions Club Charities.  Myself and a  couple of members got together to make these Water Bottle Toppers for our crafters.    Nothing fancy but we wanted to say thanks and because it is a Lions Club function this little Lion from a retired set works perfect.  I did used current Thanks from Stampin’ Up! Designer Tin of Cards,  Cardstock, Dapper Denim and Daffodil Delight and Oval Framelit.  Colors are the Lion Club Colors so they why the choice of color

Dimensions:

8 1/2 by 2 3/4 Score at 3″ , then turn and score at 2″.   3 Inch score is the top so using a 1 1/4 circle punch, I punched out the center.   On the other end, I used sticky tape on the bottom 2 ” score on both sides and this folded up made my pocket.

These would be really cute with some Designer Series Paper for any holiday.   I probably will make some for my Club Christmas party in December and  they’ll be all decked out for Christmas.

Any questions, please email me.    www.eileenfrost@msn.com

Need to do some shopping, please go to SHOP with ME 24/7

Some of the products I used on the Water Bottle Topper

In my opinion the Stampin’ Trimmer is a must have.   Measures and cuts and scores up to a 12 full inches.  Only cutting and scoring tool you will ever need.   Replacement blades available

Thanks for stopping by
