Blossoms in Bloom for the 4th

The 4th of July is this weekend and we have a couple of family birthdays coming up so I reached for the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and my Stamparatus. I really like this stamp set with it’s bold watercolor feeling images. The set has some great all occasions sentiments in addition to the birthday one I used for this project and since it is 2 step gives me a lot of great options.

Check out this card using the set that I’ve done in red, white and blue so it have a patriotic feel to it.

I love the way it turned out. The fact that this set is a Distinktive set make it soooo easy to create this wonderful card. Check out this quick video I made for you.

Tasteful Touches Card Tutorial

Today’s card is made with our In Good Taste Suite of products – as soon as I saw this suite I knew it would be one I’d reach for again and again. Not only does the stamp set have some great sentiments in a lovely font, it also has some wonderful collage type stamps which I’m always looking for to build layers of texture and interest on a card.

And the Dies! What can I say…. I love basic shapes that I can use with multiple stamp sets and this set is fantastic with their stitched edges and embossed details.

Today’s card is quick and easy since it uses the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper as a back drop. I love paper like this that has texture and versatility making it great for masculine cards too.

I’m thinking the Bumblebee and wood give this card a rather country feel to it. What do you think? Gingham always reminds me of my childhood summers, so I’m excited to have a couple of gingham options in this catalog.

Here is a quick video for you along with a PDF that includes a supply list and measurements too.

Fun new project using the Best Dressed Suite

Today I’m going to share with you a fun project that I created to hold a couple of post it note pads. I think it’s a great little gift to give someone too! Want to see it?

So what do you think? It uses the Dressed to Impress Bundle and the stamping is on the inside for a little surprise message along with two little post it note pads.

I used what I had here in my closet of goodies but of course if you wanted to you could put a larger post it note pad inside – I did see that they come in the bigger size when I went looking the other day. I was just too impatient to wait on a delivery to start working on my idea. I call it a purse but really I guess it is a clutch since it doesn’t have handles. 🙂

I’ve got a video tutorial and PDF for you so you can make some too! They are pretty simple to make.

Timeless Tropical Treat Tutorial

Today’s project is one that I whipped up as a special treat for those that had signed up originally for my live Class last weekend – while the live class didn’t happen as schedule those folks will still get this little sweet little surprise with their kits.

These treats hold 3 Ghirardelli Chocolates and I just happened to be in luck and have enough hidden from my husband in my class room. The caramel and crunchy caramel pecan wrappers were the perfect color combo for this project as they picked up the colors from the fruit in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series paper.

Want to see how I made these quick little treats? How about a 3 minute video?

#imbringingbirthdaysback with Daisy Lane in April

Wow, it has taken me a bit longer than I had planned to share this card with you – I can’t believe it is already the 8th and my birthday cards went out earlier this month already. Having everyone home including my adult children has been a crazy, but wonderful to have everyone under our roof again. It just creates a different rhythm to my day. lol

Any how here is the card – I used the bright and cheerful Bermuda Bay and teamed it up with our Daisy Punch and the Daisy Lane stamp set. I think it’s great for spring!

What do you think? Why not leave me a comment?

This card is simple to whip up and easy to make multiples of since our Designer Series Paper Stack has multiple sheets in each color.

Here is a quick video tutorial for you.

No Matter the Weather Note Card Tutorial

March’s Paper Pumpkin kit had 2 stamp sets – the one that came with the kit and then a bonus set that coordinated with it. And it seemed like a wonderful kit for right now. I really enjoyed putting it together and creating with the sets themselves. So today I thought I’d share my alternate project with you that I created as a thank you card for those who subscribe to the kit.

I use the Note Cards & Envelopes for these cards since they are a great value and wonderful for newer stampers since you receive the card base and envelope for one low price.

Here is my video tutorial showing you how I created this card – why not take a few minutes to check it out?

And a PDF that you can print off with a complete supply list

Ornate Thanks Card Tutorial

Sorry I didn’t get this posted as planned late yesterday, but with the announcement yesterday afternoon from our Governor and our son’s birthday I was feeling overwhelmed and needed a bit of time to process. I’m sure that you can relate. This morning brought a lovely new sunrise and a bright new day and so I’m back to share.

So here we go –

Today’s project is one that I made for my April Thank You cards using the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release Bundle of products that just went live yesterday. Filled with beautiful colors and floral images this card allows the Specialty Designer Series Paper to shine.

This stamp set is filled with not only a wonderful selection of sentiments it uses a lovely font also. The coordinating dies have some lovely borders that I can’t wait to play with too.

I’ve whipped up a quick video for you and a PDF with supply list so you can create this project too while were home.

Enjoy!
