Bunny Bonus

One last bunny card from the "A Good Day" stamp set. How can I resist this cute little thing? So heres a quick post with the bunny again in different colors and a new layout.

I used the Petal Pairs "vines" emboss folder as well as the Naturally Eclectic designer paper for the split background.

The colors used are wisteria wonder, whisper white and pool party.

I used the coordinating 1 1/8 and 1 3/8 scallop punches to layer the bunny as well as the Starburst punch in wisteria wonder.

The sweet little embroidery hoops frame this little cutie so perfectly. I added the lovely smoky slate gingham ribbon to wrap it all up. Did you notice the tiny pearl on the pool party bow? How sweet is that?

IMG_1120

Just a note: the hoop stays on great with the tombow multi purpose glue and the ribbon has a soft shimmer to it that you can't she in the photo.

This was the Bonus card at Card Class and it sure was a huge it with the ladies. Hope you like it too!

Until the next time...

Stampin Up "In The Trees" stamp set with Watercolor Pencils

This is such a cool stamp set. I love that it has a hammock and cute little pennants and  lights to hang from the trees. It even has a tiny squirrel!

This card was very basic. I simply stamped the images in basic black archival ink, and used Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua-Painter to color them in.

IMG_1183

I used watercolor paper to stamp and color on. The other cardstocks are soft sky and crumb cake.

For the trees, I just randomly colored the entire top of the tree with the old olive and bermuda bay pencils. I kind of just scribbled the colors in. Then I used the aqua painter to wash over the leaves and blend the colors together.

IMG_1184

For the clouds and tree trunk, I outlined the image and washed over it with the aqua painter. The flowers and grass are lightly colored before I used the aqua painter to give them a water colored look.

IMG_1187

I love my embellishments, and here you can see that I've added a few Glitter and Clear Epoxy dots.

The sun is from the "Let the Good Times Roll" roller coaster stamp set. I stamped it in daffodil delight and then used the pumpkin pie watercolor pencil to highlight. I washed over it with my aqua painter as well.

Here's a close up of the sun. I needed to add some "shine" so I used the Wink of Stella brush to make it sparkle.

IMG_1188

I cut out the clouds and popped them on with mini dimensionals.

IMG_1186

I used the Congratulations greeting from the set because I thought it would make a great Gradution card. Especially for a young man. Its a great masculine set as well as any age or gender.

We've never had a stamp set quit like this. I think its pretty awesome. What do you think?

Thanks for taking the time to take a look!

Until the next time...

Sneak Peek-Card Class Mothers Day card

Here's a quick sneak peek at one of the cards we will be making at Card Class this week.

I used the Lovely Wishes stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog to design this simple and elegant Mothers Day card.

I decided on the color berry burst as the bold pop of color. I think it looks amazing with the black and white, Petal Passions designer paper.

IMG_1122

The leaves are stamped in old olive. This color never goes out of trend. Its my go-to green.

IMG_1111

A beautiful berry burst metalic edge ribbon ties it all up. This ribbon is smooth satin and glorious with a bit of silver sparkle - my favorite!

I think the ladies are going to love this one. Its quick and easy to make, but elegant enough to make an impression.

Easter Bunny/Baby card Simple Eclipse Technique

Easter is just around the corner and this " Sweet Little Something" bunny is perfect for Easter cards and pages. I actually made this as a baby card, but it is just as great as an Easter card.

The colors are whisper white, pink pirouette and berry burst cardstocks as well as pink pirouette, sweet sugarplum and berry burst inks. I stamped them in that order.

IMG_0367

This card uses a simple Eclipse technique. I used only one heart from the Sweet and Sassy hearts framelits set. I first stamped the bunny on the whisper white, then cut out the heart over the bunny head. Next, I attached the whisper white that had the heart cut out of it, to the berry burst cardstock, using dimensionals, so that it was elevated. Finally, I placed the heart cut out back into the open heart space and glued it down.

IMG_0368

Here, you see the dimension from the Eclipse technique. To see another sample of this technique, click here. I also used the gorgeous berry burst ribbon and a few scattered pearl jewels to add a more feminine touch. I placed the pearls directly on some of the dots formed by the Softly Falling emboss folder.

IMG_0369

So, for both a new baby or a sweet bunny Easter card, its perfect either way! The Sweet Little Something stamp set, is a must have this season.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Stampin Up- A Good Day Lemonade

I simply can't put this set down! I keep thinking of more cards to create with this darling stamp set.

A Good Day stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I was thinking spring and wishing for warmer days today, so I came up with this refreshing and brightly colored greeting card.

IMG_E0915

Ahh... so refreshing. I used some cheerful and happy colors for this card, including, daffodil delight, lemon lime twist, and peek a boo peach. Even the names of these colors make me happy.

I colored the drink glasses with regular Stampin Write Markers in the same colors.

IMG_0918

I didn't use the coordinating Embroidery Hoops this time, but I did use the 2 Scallop Circle punches that coordinate with this darling stamp set.

IMG_E0919

The daffodil delight cardstock measures 4 x 5 1/4, the peek a boo peach is 5 1/4 x 3 and the Tuttu Frutti designer paper is 5 x 2 3/4.  I stamped the "Just for You" starburst twice. Once on lemon lime twist cardstock and once on whisper white. I then used the 1" circle punch to punch out the words on the whisper white cardstock and used a dimensional to pop it up on the lemon lime twist scallop circle.

IMG_0916

 I tied it up with two ribbons made with my favorite gorgeous, lemon lime twist ribbon and added a few Tutti Frutti self adhering sequins!

I hope this makes you all warm and happy and ready for spring!

Until the next time...

Stampin Up "A Good Day" stamp set

Oh this stamp set is so adorable! I also bought the cute little mini embroidery hoops that go with this darling stamp set. Oh my gosh, so stinkin' cute!

So, I made up some cards for my directs on my team. Directs are the people who signed up with Stampin Up directly under me. I love these girls to the moon and back. I wanted to send them a "just because" card with a little surprise inside, and this is the set that I chose to use to make all their cards.

I didn't stop there tho, I had to make more and more cards with this set. The new tiny scallop punches go perfectly with this set as well.

First I will show you the card I made for my team. I used the little bunny from the set, because its so sweet, just like the girls that I sent these cards to. :)

IMG_0881

I used pink pirouette and sweet sugar plum cardstocks as well as whisper white. The sweet sugar plum products as well as all the 2016-2018 In Colors,  will retire in May, so get them now, before they are sold out!

For the background, I used the new "Scattered Sequins" emboss folder in the Occasions Catalog 2018.

IMG_0880

The Mini Embroidery Hoops come in two sizes- this is the smaller of the two. I also used the two new scallop punches to layer under the bunny, as well as a gold foil doily. I added the In Color enamel shapes and the new silver twine for a small bow at the top of the hoop. The shimmery strips are the new Myths and Magic washi tape from the Occasions Catalog.

IMG_0879

Here's a bunch of them, ready to be mailed.

IMG_0886

IMG_E0868

So, after I made those, I made this one...

IMG_0876

I basically used the same supplies, but this one has the larger of the two hoops and the Wood Textures designer paper for the background.

IMG_0874

The bunny is colored with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers in ivory, crumb cake, pink pirouette and rich razzleberry.

I also used the Triple Banner punch to cut the tails on the sweet sugar plum banners.

IMG_0877

I attached the bow with a glue dot and the hoops were attached with Multi purpose liquid glue. Glue dots could be used to attach the hoop as well.

IMG_0873

I love how they turned out. This would even make a sweet Easter Card too!

Wait until you see the other cards I made with this set- I will be featuring them this week. They are even cuter- if that's possible!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until the next time...
