CASE the Catalog - Easter Promise

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you one of the CASE the Catalog Swap cards that I got back in November.  Easter is around the corner and I wanted to share this cute card with you today.  I am not sure who made this card in the swap group but I love what they did.  The card that was CASED (Copy and Share Everything) from the Easter Promise Card on the top of page 44 of the January-June Mini Catalog.  Here's a look at the card I received.

Tips & Tricks: 

For this card the card base was made from Purple Posy Cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).  There's a strip of Purple Posy Cardstock that has been embossed with the Spripty 3D embossing folder along with the stitched nestled label die cuts.  The center square was made with the largest square in the Stitched Shapes Dies.  

The flowers and the Happy Easter Sentiment were both heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and then heat set.  The flowers where colored in with stampin blends in the following colors; Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive.  Once the flowers where colored they were cut out using snips.  

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your weekend.  If you need any of the supplies you can order them in my online store by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.  
Happy Stampin'

Spread Your Wings and Fly - Little Ladybug

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card using a very special stamp set.  I am going to share with you a card that I made with the Saleabration Host/Hostess Stamp Set called Little Ladybug.  These cute little ladybugs are eager to help you spread some love with fun handmade cards for birthdays, thank you, thinking of you, encouragement, and more!  This adorable stamp set can only be earned during Saleabration with a qualifying order, party, or workshop.  I will tell you more on that in a little while.  I based my card today on a card that's in the Saleabration brochure.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card by making my own designer series paper using my Old Olive Stampin' Blends and a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Once I had the pattern I wanted; I just simply cut it into the size strips I needed.   After that I started working on stamping the flowers and the ladybug.  

I stamped the ladybug and the two flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  This allowed me to color each of them with my Stampin' Blends.  I did really simple coloring on both.  For the flowers I just colored the centers (Mango Melody) and the stems and leaves were done in Old Olive.  And, for the lady bug I colored the wings (Poppy Parade), and a little coloring on the body (Petal Pink).  I even colored in the dots on the wings because they are not stamped all the way with the image.  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and sprinkled with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set onto a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock that was made into a banner.  

How to Get this set: 

To get the adorable Little Ladybug Host Stamp Set FREE!  Yes, you can get it for free; when you host a party or place an order totaling $300 or more during our Sale-A-Bration promotion (January 3–March 31, 2020).    Once you hit the threshold for the order you will be able to add it to your order along with your Stampin' Reward items.

Happy Stampin'
