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

Enjoy your day

Beautiful You MOJO 479

Beautiful You.png

I’m finally back!  Where have I been?  Well, have had some health issues, Christmas is always a challenge and I had to do some tax training  (I volunteer for AARP to help folks, senior or low income, with their taxes.   But I think I can at least post a couple of times a week once again.  Still need to take tax test, but I’m in hopes to fit everything in.

This Card I created using the design challenge MOJO479 and the majority of products are new from the new Stampin’ UP! Occasions Catalog which you can view in the right margin of this page.

This is a great time of year for Stampers.  Stampin’ Up! offers a free product from their Sale-a-bration Catalog  (link on right side also).   For every $50 you spend, you can have one free product.  My next post will be using one of those free Stamp Sets.

This Card is using Stampin’ Up! Products

  1. Beautiful You from the Occasions Catalog (OC)
  2. Succulent Garden Designer  Series Paper  (OC)
  3. Lace Doilies (OC)
  4. Watercolor Pencils (OC)
  5. Stampin’ UP! Cardstock:  Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron
  6. Momento Ink Pad

Go to  Watercolor Pencils Video for some instructions.   That explains it much better than I could

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

Bird House

bird-house

Love this Card.  This a a CASE from ramblingrosestudio.com who is so creative.  I came upon her Blog about a month again and she just post some beautiful cards and projects.  I changed this card up some from her image, but not a lot so wanted to give her the credit.

Building your card:

  1. Base card is Stampin’ Up! Early Expresso  8 1/2 x 11 then score at 4 1/4
  2. Next layer is in Stampin’ UP! Whisper White  4 x 5 1/4.   I used Stampin’ UP! Embossing Folder Softly Falling and ran this through my Big Shot.  At the bottom, I added Stampin’ Up! 3/8″ Stitiched Satin Ribbon,   Wrap a 5″ piece around the back towards the bottom and use mono adhesive to attach.  Now attach to your BASE card of Early Expresso
  3. Assembling the Birdhouse:  Using the Stampin’ Up! Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper, I cut out one of the Birdhouses, then cut a piece of Early Expresso for pole ( 3/8 x 2), then punched out a base with  a retired Cupcake punch (you can use a square punch or just cut out freehand) and then ran that through the Big shot using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  Assemble as I have using Stampin’ Up! demensionals to attach the Birdhouse and base.
  4. Punch out a bird from Stampin’ UP!s Tree builder punch and attach where you would like.
  5. Stamp Merriest Wishes from Stampin’ Up!s Stamp Set Christmas Magic and punch out using Stampin’ UP! Classic Label

Hint for Stamping Phases

Thought I’d share this helpful Hint.   A lot of times when we are stamping the images of some words, they are very hard to cover.   If you use a Stampin’ Pierce Mat  (link to site below) you will get a nice clean image.   This will work on any stamp images or phase.

If you like those words, you can also see a link to the Stampin’ Up! stamp set below

Stampin’ Pierce Mat   Item # 126199

Star of Light   Item # 142110

Hope that was helpful    Have a great day

2017 Calendar, Post-it Note and pen

post-it-note-calendar-pen

Getting ready for some upcoming Craft Fairs so thought I would share my Guy layout for this 5 x 7 Frame

Each year someone will ask for a Guy theme and I usually have a couple (experience from previous years).  This is the one I came up with this year.  I used Stampin’ Up! Swirly Bird Stamp Set and Thinlit Dies.    The swirly behind the boat was just done with a piece of this post-it note so it would match.   I also did the pen and the same designer paper from last years catalog.

Nice easy gift for your family and friends or great for craft fair sales.  I don’t sell a ton but I usually make a dozen or so and sell all of those.  I buy my Calendars from Vippee and with the left over calendars, I will have my club members make a small magnetic holder for their gift giving.

Any questions, please reply and I’ll get back to you.

Enjoy your day

Eileen
