Glitter & Glam Girls Blog Hop Masculine May

Hi friends, here we are back with our Glitter & Glam Girls Blog Hop! No glitter on my project this month since our theme is masculine cards, wanted to give you some inspiration to get ready for Father’s Day next month in the US.

I debated about what to create and a set was really calling to me from the new catalog, the stamp set is called “A Good Man” and will be available to purchase on June 4 (unless you are demonstrator you can pre-order it now).

The base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2″ night of navy card stock, and I used 4×5 1/4″ whisper white for the top layer, a 4″ x 3″ piece of the new Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. I also used the new night of a navy and Sahara sand bakers twine and after wrapping it around the card twice I slipped it through the Sail Away trinkets (2 styles-anchors and ship steering wheels) and frayed the ends of the twine by untwisting after I knotted it. I cut another piece of whisper white out using the stitched shapes dies, I used the medium oval piece.

 

This card would be perfect for Father’s Day, or for your special guys birthday, retirement, job promotion, anything you name it. I colored with our alcohol markers, the Stampin’ Blends, and I use soft suede for the sand and his hat, balmy blue for the sky, Bermuda bay for the stripes on the chair, Night of Navy on his shirt, Ivory for his skin, and basic gray for the shorts. I did use the color lifter to soften the look of his shirt and for shading. What do you think? I would love to hear from you!

Fall Fun Cards in Corinth!

I was so honored and excited to be invited to have a fun fall card making night at my friend Wendy’s massage studio up in Corinth. (Amethyst Springs). I invited some ladies that I knew who lived up that way and Wendy posted it on her Facebook page and we found some crafty ladies who came that we met for the first time. Wendy made a yummy dinner of meatballs and veggie lasagna, bruschetta and salad and then she had cookies and cheesecake for dessert. We made four cards and everyone enjoyed the evening so much they asked me to come back and do Christmas cards, so we will be getting together again on Thursday night November 29, let me know if you’d like to be invited to this Christmas card get together.

Here are the four cards we made last night:

This card is a CASE of one of the beautiful cards my downline Lisa made for me last month. I modified it as we were using the sunflowers in another card. The secret to making these adorable little fences was a dryer sheet under the card stock. It worked like a charm.

This was a card I created and used for my card swap by mail with 21 other demonstrators that I participated in last month.

This card was modified slightly from a card I received from Sandy C. in a card swap by mail with 21 other demonstrators that I participated in last month.

Wendy gave me this adorable burlap adorned photo holder that worked out perfectly to hold my sample card. Specially came in handy since I forgot my giant close pins that I normally use to keep cards up high so everyone can see them.

What do you think? I always love to hear from you and see what you think of the cards, is there anything you would do differently?

I am throwing my hat in the ring for Stampin’ Up! to consider me to be a display stamper for Orlando’s OnStage event in November. I absolutely love all of our stamps, ink, paper, ribbons, embellishments and I treasure the opportunity to come up with some projects to inspire everyone. Thank you for considering me.

Would love to hear what you think about some of my favorite projects. The rules stated we needed to submit three cards, two 3-D objects, and two scrapbook pages.

I am thrilled that 7 of my team, and many wonderful stamping friends, will be at the Orlando OnStage event with me.

Thank you for visiting me!

Team Swaps!

Hi everyone, I wanted to show off all the wonderful swaps from our team get together on Thursday night. What a talented group of ladies, don’t you agree?

For my card I used the new dandelion wishes stamp set.

Here’s a tip if you want to re-create this card.

I used the rectangle framelit from the barn door set to create a window opening to brayer on the color.

I used some washi tape to adhere it down on my grid paper.

I used black embossing powder and versamark ink to create the dandelions and the greeting. I used our new balmy blue ink pad for the brayer and card stock.

This lovely swap card was made by the amazing Lisa Mackey!

It’s no surprise that Kara Pagerie used the new bunny bundle, how cute and colorful? Love it.

How fun and vintage is this version of dandelion wishes? Made by the wonderful Laurie Kownack.

Love Kathy Sim’s sweet card using Lilypad Lake bundle!

Isn’t this Daisy Delight card featuring the new rich razzleberry velvet trim stunning? Kudos goes to Tiffany Williams-Hart for this beauty.

And this lovely card was one of our Make & Takes by our fabulous hostess Amye Speirs.

And I brought the new Notes of Kindness Kit, such a fun and easy kit. You can make 5 each of 4 designs.

Creative Inking Ready for Spring!

 

Hi friends!

Happy first day of spring! I had the pure joy of spending the day Sunday with a wonderful group of demonstrators, we had a “shoe box swap ”

This adorable little pouch of candy was our favor, don’t you just love that little bunny? This technique is known as the “diaper fold”.

I loved making this card, this was designed by Regina. This stamp set is called “You’re Inspiring” and it was a breeze to color in with our alcohol markers (called blends).

This cute little card is one I’m going to feature at a private Easter party I’m having tomorrow night. I love it when my customers call me up and say “hey I want to have a party can we make all Easter goodies?” Really looking forward to crafting with some new ladies.

I hope these colorful projects help you feel like you are getting ready for spring!

Card Making at the Senior Center & Blog Candy Give Away!


Good morning stamping friends! I hope you have had a great week! Do you have fun plans for the weekend? Tomorrow we will be traveling to Syracuse to celebrate Mother’s Day with my family- looking forward to it, we have a lovely brunch at a restaurant called Justin’s Tuscan Grill and then hopefully if the weather cooperates we will head to a local park to visit and hang out together! I don’t want to show you my Mother’s Day cards/projects yet- so be sure to come back on Monday to see my creations.

Today I want to share with you four cards that I did last week at my monthly card class at a local senior center. Shout out to my friend and downline Brigid, she volunteers to come each month and help me with this class. Thanks so much Brigid!

This sweet card is one of two projects you can make from your March 2016 paper pumpkin kit! This kit made four cards of this size, and four gift card holders simply adorable!

 

Because I love my paper pumpkin kit so much, and I’d love to put one in your hands, because I have this prepaid gift card, I am issuing a blog candy challenge, leave me a comment about why you want a kit (what you would use it for, who you might create with, any comment about these fun kits). Be sure to leave a comment on this thread here on my blog, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a spot where you can leave a comment. Be sure to leave a comment by Tuesday, May 10 at 5 PM. I will draw one winner using a random number generator, and I will contact the winner between 8 and 9 PM to redeem this kit I will need your contact info.

This card showcases the free stamp set Stampin’ Up! gifted to us in our April 2016 paper pumpkin kit. The stamp set is called “All About Everything” and it is just gorgeous. I came up with this flower pot design to showcase a flat and simple card. What do you think? Those outgoing in colors just really pop, I used Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, blackberry bliss, and hello honey. Did you stock up on these colors before they retire?

This simple card showcases three products that are carrying over to the next catalog, so glad the kit called water color wishes is carrying over, also happy about the botanical blooms set, and timeless textures from the Occasions catalog!!

This fun card is perfect for that special guy, unfortunately this stamp set called “going global” is retiring, if you want this set, you must order it by May 31!!

Here are a couple variations of this card with other sentiments.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! I hope you have a wonderful day, don’t forget to leave me a comment if you want to be entered to win one free paper pumpkin kit! (This contest is open to everyone, my downline, customers, other demonstrators, and friends!)
