Birthday, Handmade Cards

Sequins IN or Sequins OUT, I can’t decide!

The card on the left has the sequins going inwards while the card on the right has the sequins pushing outwards. Both cards use all the same materials. The only difference is the the position of the cupcake/sentiment and the direction of the sequin embossing on the foil paper. Comment below I would love to know what you think of either design!

  • Adhesive:  Mini Glue Dots & Snail
  • Base: Grapefruit Grove 8.5 x 5 1/2
  • Cardstock: Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet (SAB) 4 x 5 1/4′  & Whisper White
  • Die: Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies *Available 3/1/19*

  1. Cut Calypso Coral at the 5 1/2 mark along the 11 side, fold and burnish with the bone folder to make the base.
  2. Cut Foil Paper to 4 x 5 1/4 and dry emboss with the embossing folder in the Big Shot.
  3. Stamp cupcake base in Soft Suede followed by cake in ‘stamped off’ Soft Suede, then the icing in ‘stamped off’ Calypso Coral and finally the sprinkles in Calypso Coral.

Handmade Cards, Product Shares, Sympathy

Simple Sympathy

IMG_7827

Sympathy cards are a part of the cycle of life. Sometimes there is joy and sometimes there is sadness in this cycle. This morning we received the sad news that the beautiful light that was my husband’s grandmother Gladys has passed on.

Many times the card pattern above has crossed by Pinterest path and though I have wanted to make my own version many times because I love the simple beauty of the design it just never seemed like the right moment. Until now. Should you need to mourn the sunset of a loved one’s life I share the details below.

Products Used:

  • Base: Whisper White Thick
  • Ink: So Saffron, Petal Pink, Grapefruit Grove, Momento Tuxedo Black
  • Stamp Set: Pressed Flowers (Host)
  • Tools & Accessories:   Bone folder, Clear Block H, Stampin’ Sponges, Stampin’ Trimmer

Make it: 

  • Cut a piece of whisper white thick in half at the 5 1/2 mark on the long side with the Stampin’ Trimmer.
  • Fold one section in half and burnish with the bone folder.
  • Mask a square section off using post-it notes.
  • Ink a portion of the Sponge and rub in the masked section in the order of So Saffron, Petal Pink, Grapefruit Grove blending between the colors.
  • Stamp flowers in Tuxedo Black Momento.

Happiness Blooms In MY Mailbox

IMG_7805.jpg

Speaking of Happy Mail, this arrived yesterday from Linda Bauwin. It is my 3rd anniversary as a Demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! and I LOVE IT!

Did you get a chance to check out the Happiness Blooms Product Share? Sometimes you have to see cards made with a set to really fall in love with it. Bold strong colors are featured in this suite but what makes it great is it coordinates with so many of our other stamps to create many different looks. For cards you can make in minutes pair the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Card pack with the Memories and More Note Cards and Envelopes.

Handmade Cards, Paper Pumpkin

December Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

savingpng

Day by Day is actually the December kit but we all know life happens so here I am in the middle of a blizzard… what better time then now to curl up with some craftiness. I have to confess Sidney made the entire 18 month calendar by herself. She gave me the “spare parts” and with some Tea Room Speciality Paper scraps and Whisper White Note Cards/Envelopes (this is not a typo, they are not Very Vanilla- it’s the bad lighting in my craft room) we have cute little anytime cards.

Don’t forget you can earn FREE SALE-A-BRATION items with a 3 month or greater subscription to Paper Pumpkin. Already a subscriber, no problem the new subscription will begin once your current subscription is complete. For me this is a no brainer so that is how I purchase mine every year. Just like that I have 2-4 free items and Stampin’ Rewards! During Sale-a-bration get $25 EXTRA Stampin Rewards for orders that are $250. TRIPLE WIN!
