Wonderful Moments Wedding Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a card with you that I CASEd from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Case means to Copy and Share Everything.  And is a great way to learn new techniques and other card ideas learn from them.  I used the Wonderful Moments stamp set for my card.  The Wonderful Moments stamp set is a beautiful set with some wonderful sentiments and imagery that's easy to color with your favorite media.  Here's a look at my card.

Here's a look at the card that inspired my card today.

Tips & Tricks: 

To start off I took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut at 4 x 5 1/4, and stamped the bride image in Tuxedo Black ink.  I then repeated the stamping on a piece of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper in the same ink.  Once the ink was dry on the DSP I took my basic black stampin' write marker and extended the lines of the dress to run off the card front.   I then used my Paper Snips and cut out the dress.  I made sure to cut it out just along the stamped lines.  I then took my Stampin' Blends and colored the rest of the bride.  

Once all the coloring was done I used some Multipurpose Liquid Glue and attached the designer series paper dress right over the other one.  I then stamped the sentiment on the card front with calypso coral ink.  I added the card front to a piece of petal pink cardstock 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I then added it to my Sahra Sand Card base that was cut to 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  

To finish off the card I added a few rhinestones to add a little bling and shine to the card.  Thanks for dropping by today.  If you need any of the supplies that I used today you can find them listed below in my Stampin' Up Shopping List.

Wishing You Much Happiness today and Always - So Sentimental - Bird Ballad Notecard

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute and easy notecard using products from the January-June Mini and the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog  For my project today I created a note card to share with someone that maybe getting married, or maybe they are going through something, or maybe they just need a little encouragement.  These little notecards are perfect for all those occasions you may run into.  I picked one of my favorite Sentiment sets and one of my favorite Designer series papers for this project.  Here's a look at the notecard.

I used the Bird Ballad designer series paper and the So Sentimental Bundle for my project today.  I love the fun spring feel of the designer series paper.  I am really feeling the spring-fever right now, as you may have noticed from my projects as of late.  And, the Bird Ballad Designer series paper helps kind of curves the I am Ready for Spring feeling I've got going on.  I wanted to showcase the big sentiment from the So Sentimental Stamp Set so I keep the card really simple in design.  Just a little designer series paper and a few colored rhinestones.  Which by the way I colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend.

My note card was cut from a piece of thick whisper white cardstock which measures 4" x 10 1/2" and I scored it at 5 1/4" to make the top folding note card.  I actually did this by accident I thought was cutting down two pieces of whisper white for another project but learned after I had it cut that it was a Thick Whisper White Card base; I think it all worked out because I adore the card that it made.  The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper was cut to fit the entire front of the card.  I used another piece that I had cut down for the center of the card to add a little color interest plus to help ground the sentiment.  I also added a little strip to the inside of the card to make everything tie in.
After all the designer series paper was attached I stamped my sentiment onto a scrap of the thick whisper white cardstock in Daffodil Delight ink and used the matching dies from the bundle to cut it out.  The So Sentimental Bundle includes the So Sentimental Stamp Set and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.


Create tags, labels, and more with the phrases in the So Sentimental Stamp Set. These greetings are suitable for so many occasions—celebrating birthdays, welcoming new babies, saying “thank you.”
* 11 cling stamps
* Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): a, b, c, d


Create frames and tags of various shapes and sizes using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Pair the dies with the coordinating So Sentimental Stamp Set to quickly cut out sentiments for your handmade cards, tags, and more. You’ll love the versatility of these dies and the all-occasion sentiments from the stamp set.

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that I have inspired you to power thorough your mess ups and try to create something beautiful with them.  Sometimes it's just a matter at looking at things just a little differently to get over that hurdle.  If you need any of the supplies that I used today you can pick them up in my online store 24/7 by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.

Bird Ballad RAK Card Received from Victoria Hevener

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the Random Act of Kindness card I received back in June from Victoria Hevener.  Victoria created this really fabulous card and and sent out.  I was super happy to open this little gift in the mail.  Here's a look at her card. 

I am not quite sure how she created this lovely card but I have my thoughts on how I would create it.  To recreate her card I would first stamp all the images on a piece of whisper white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black around the card.  Next I would add a piece of post it tape to the section I wanted the first line.  I would then use my Stampin' Blends to color up to that line and around all the images.  I think the top color is the light Night of Navy blend, and the other two colors was Seaside Spray light and dark.  Going down to the next section the above steps was repeated and then again.  in the lightest color. 
To finish off the card the card front was added to a basic black card base.  The sentiment was stamped on whisper white and then cut out using the stitched label dies.  She cut one of the flowers out either from the designer series paper or after coloring it.  She added a vellum strip made into fish tail banners. 
Thanks for dropping by today.  I hope that you have enjoyed Victoria's card as much as I did.

Bird Ballad Bronze Elite Advancement Card and Gift

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made for my team members that advanced last month to Bronze Elite.  These ladies have worked really hard to advance in title to the next level with Stampin' Up! and I created a card for them and a little goody bag to reward them.  I actually had three team members to advance last month.  One did it the last day of the month so her little goody bag and card will be in the mail to her tomorrow.  Here's a look at what I sent them.

I made them this super cute card using the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and a goody bag of copper products.  Copper was as close as I could get to bronze, I hope they don't mind.  Each of my team member that advanced got a bolt of the copper ribbon, a sheet of Copper foil (cut down to 6 x 6 so I could get it in the mailer) and a couple of the new Copper Treat Bags.  Pretty nice little gift if I say so myself.  I am sure that these well deserving ladies will agree. 
Here's a little closer look at the card I sent them.  The sentiment came from the Delightful Day Stamp Set (on page 34 of the 2019 2020 Annual Catalog )  The Delightful Day Stamp Set is great for little treats to give to someone with it's sentiments geared toward treat packaging.  Plus the little images inside this stamp set is great to decorate your card or tags with because you can find one for anyone male or female.  I added a strip of copper foil to the card to tie in their advancement to bronze elite.  When some one with Stampin' Up! advances to bronze elite they not only advance in title but they get an extra 5% discount on their orders.   They go from just the normal 20% to 25% and believe me that extra little 5% can come in very handy.  And, that's not all when they advanced they got 5000 flex points plus twice a year as long as they maintain their title they will get an extra 1500 flex points.  For those wondering what the big deals with flex points are; well we use these towards, trips, and other free items.   You can't beat free stuff.

Have you been thinking about Joining:  

Have you been thinking about joining Stampin' Up! even to get the discount?  Well, its a great idea.  I joined just for the discount and quickly saw how I could make this into a business.  My business, that's one of the great things about Stampin' Up! you can run your business your way.  Plus you get great perks along the way, both from the company and your team leader.  My team or how I prefer to refer to them as my little stamping family get extras from me each month.
