I don't know what it is, but I'm really looking forward to this weekend. Some weeks are just like that. My daughter is coming home from college to celebrate her big brother's graduation from college two weeks ago. Now that they are older, it's such a blessing to have both kids home under the same roof even if it's just for one night. I'm back with the Hues of Happiness Suite of products. Oh my goodness, this pattern paper just makes my heart … [Read more...] about Happy Fri-YAY!
One of my favorite stamp sets from the Catalog pre-order is the Happiness Abounds bundle. I absolutely love the coordinating pattern paper. For today's card I chose the rainbow sheet and matched my flower colors to the paper. I used my blending brush to add a bit of yellow to the tag just to soften the white color. And then edged the ink with a bit of pink to help it stand out. Then I added a lot of the iridescent rhinestones because I love … [Read more...] about Happiness Abounds
Before I share today's project, just a reminder that TODAY is the last day of the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. This really is the last chance to get those products that are retiring from the Catalog. Now on to today's project... A quick thank you card using the Flowing Flowers stamp set. This is a quick card that you can easily make several of in a short amount of time. The large flower is stamped in navy on the navy card stock to add some … [Read more...] about Flowing Flowers
Just try to say that five times fast! It's quite the mouthful. I think that's what this technique is called. I found a pattern for this unique fun fold online and created my own card using the Flowering Fields Suite. This is one gorgeous card. It is so unique that it stands on its own, and all the different folds with the different patterns are just beautiful. The pattern online made a larger size card, almost 7" tall. It wouldn't fit in one … [Read more...] about A Double Fan Fun Fold Card
Oh my goodness, I think this one is my favorite card so far with the Flowering Fields Suite. Slim line cards are so popular right now, but sometimes they can be tough to create if your stamp isn't big enough. I knew the actual stamp for the field wasn't going to be long enough so I had to adjust my design a bit for this card. First I cut my white card stock length based on how long I thought it should be. I started with the yellow flowers in … [Read more...] about Tall Flowers
I'm back this week with more projects using the Flowering Fields Suite. This time I'm using the Tulip Fields stamp set. This one takes a bit of practice to get the field stamped right. The horizontal yellow flowers are all one stamp. I recommend using the Stamparatus with this stamp to be sure you have it straight. Then the triangle fields are added in. I recommend starting on the outside, next to the yellow flowers and then work your way in to … [Read more...] about Flowering Fields
Monday I shared a simple card using the Flowing Rain Boots bundle. Today I have a more stepped up version for you. This one uses more ribbon, vellum doilies, and one of those gold bumble bees! I think I need to add more of those gold bumble bees to my stash, just in case Stampin Up decides to retire them this year. They are absolutely perfect for floral and plant cards. Speaking of retiring products.. the next Annual Catalog will start on … [Read more...] about Living Life
I know Spring is still a couple weeks off, but I'm looking forward to warmer days. I'm ready to move on from sweater weather. In anticipation of Spring, I got out a new flower stamp set, Flowering Rain Boots. Today's card is a quick one that is easily replicated. I love handmade cards. And I know sometimes people struggle with making cards because they think it's too hard or too complicated. Cardmarking doesn't have to be complicated. … [Read more...] about Spring Flowers
