Beautiful Flowering Fields!

Hi Everyone! Today's card is using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Flowering Fields (you get this stamp set for free when you place a $60 order before taxes). I wish Spring was here! 

flowering fields

This one is embossed with White Embossing Powder, then coloured in using my Aqua Painter. I didn't use it like a Water Painter, more like one of our Blender Pens, because I didn't want too much water to come out and destroy the paper.

I used almost every Classic Inks from the Brights collection!

Supplies:

Paper:
5 1/2 x 8 1/2" cardstock

Accessories: Discontinued brad

Paper: 
5 1/2 x 8 1/2" cardstock
5 1/4 x 4 " Shimmer White cardstock

Flowering Fields

Hi Everyone! For today's card I am using one of the FREE stamp sets you can get through Sale-A-Bration right now (need more information please send me a message).
a dozen thoughts

If you like to colour than this is a stamp set for you! I also added Wink of Stella and it looks amazing! It adds just the right amount of glitter.


a dozen thoughts

I was going to put a bow on this card, however there is absolutely no room for one. So, I just went with a ribbon running through the back.

The squares are popped up with dimensionals. The Pearls on each square ties it all together.

Supplies:

Paper: 
Whisper White 11" x 4 1/4"
Rich Razzleberry 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White 5" x 3 3/4"

Not sure how many cards/projects I have made with this stamp set so far. I should really go and take a count. You might be getting sick of it by now!

I don't know what it is about this DSP and the stamp set. I just love it! How about you? Are you find many ways to display this great set? I have yet to use the embellishments - that will be my next challenge!

This card is based off of a sketch from Julie Davison. I highly recommend trying sketches. It gets your mojo going! lol

Paper:
4 1/4 x 11" cardstock
3 1/4 x 4 1/4" cardstock

Index Card Notebook

Hi Everyone! I have a fun little project to share with you today! Just in time for Valentine's Day! 

My daughter wanted something to give her BFF for Valentine's Day. Since we don't do treats (allergies), we do stationery stuff (actually she had a list of stationery stuff to give her!), cause you know I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and all! lol. 

This is what I came up with!

An Index Card Notebook!


index card holder

You can put as many index cards as you would like, and when those are all filled up, you can empty it and refill it with more or continue to add more! That is the beauty of this project, it never ends!

Supplies:

Paper: 
3 x 5" Whisper White Thick Card stock
2 3/4 x 4 3/4" cardstock
2 1/2 x 4 1/2" DSP

Accessories:
3 x 5" Index Cards
Binder Rings (various size)
Crop-a-dile (to punch through many layers of paper, if not just a single whole punch will do)

A tutorial on how I made it!


Here are the products that I used.

Sky is the Limit

Hi everyone! Today's card is all about the Free stamp set you can get during Sale-A-Bration (if you need more information please send me a message).


happy birthday

 As soon as I saw this set, I knew it would be mine! I love everything about it, from the font style - to the images.

happy birthday

As an added bonus it goes really well with the World Embossing folder, and the Tree Builder punch (makes great clouds). That is why I love Stampin' Up! so much. They have done all the coordinating for you. 

I guess I should probably tell you how I made the card! 

First I cut all my pieces, then I brayered the World Embossing Folder with Soft Sky, ran that through the Big Shot. 

Stamped my Birthday greeting in Night of Navy, then assembled all the layers.

I punched out the clouds in Vellum using the Tree Builder Punch. I adhered them with a glue pen. Make sure you put the glue in unnoticeable spots.

Stamped the plane and the tail clouds on a separate piece of Whisper White in Night of Navy as well. A little bit of Fussy cutting and they were done.

For the propeller I used the Small Flower Punch, then trimmed it to look one. Pierced a whole through the propeller and the plane, then added the silver brad. Of course the plane has Dimensionals behind it. There you have it!

Supplies:

Paper: Whisper White 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", Night of Navy 4" x 5 1/4", Smokey Slate 3 3/4" x 5", Whisper White 3 1/2" x 4 3/4", Vellum and extra Whisper White

Inks: Soft Sky, Night of Navy

Stamps: Sky is the Limit

Accessories: Tree Builder Punch, Glue Pen, Brayer, World Embossing Folder, Brad, Small Flower punch, Dimensionals, Big Shot
