Springtime Vintage Country Quilt

Good evening all! I love the quilted cards and as soon as I saw the Springtime Vintage Designer Series paper in the Occasions Mini I knew I wanted to do a quilt card with it! Here it is:

If you want to try a Quilted Card this is how you do it:

Take a card front size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white card stock. Cover the card stock with assorted squares punched out of designer series paper. I used the 1 1/4" square punch. Make sure to offset the squares for each row. Then when your paper is covered cut out the quilt using the TOP NOTE DIE. Then I embossed my quilt with the petals-a-plenty embossing folder to make it look extra "quilty" That's it! Very easy and looks very cool!

I layered mine on a piece of bravo burgundy that I also embossed with the petals-a-plenty embossing folder.

Here is a full on look at the "quilt" so you can really see the embossing folder impressions:

I loved it! Very easy card and looks really pretty!

Here is what I used:

Stampin Up! Stamp Sets: Elements of Style

Paper: Stampin Up! Crumb Cake, Bravo Burgundy, Springtime Vintage DSP, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Whisper White

Ink: Stampin Up! Classic ink pads in Early Espresso

Accessories: Stampin Up! Big Shot, Petals-A-Plenty Embossing folder, Top Note Die, Very Vanilla Ribbon, 1" & 1 1/4" circle punches, dimensionals, sponge

Not ALL Stampin Up...but HAD to share!

Ok... I know that this project is not ONLY made with just Stampin Up! products but there are some...and I thought this turned out to SUPER CUTE not to share!

Besides being a Stampin Up! demonstrator I am a Scentsy consultant too. I have my first home show this weekend and wanted to do something special for the hostess & have some cute door prizes. I love doing Scrapbook recipe pages and because Scentsy has a TON of yummy "recipes" you can make combining their scents...I created a Scentsy Hostess Recipe Book & Scrapbooked Scentsy Recipe cards for my Hostess thank you & door prize giveaways!

Here is my Scentsy Hostess Recipe Book:

I love the Stampin UP! VOILA set and was super sad to see it retire because I use it a lot! The Booklet is the same style as the one featured on the Stampin Up! 2007-2008 workshop wow DVD.

Here is my Scentsy Scrapbook Recipe Page for - CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!

This is made using Stampin Up! DSP in the neutrals 12 x 12 pack. This paper is AWESOME! I just got mine the other day and I will be loading up because you get 40 sheets and the patterns are all incredible. I love it! The stamp I used is from WHIFF OF JOY the Willow Collection. I love all Elisabeth Bell stamps! I hand drew the floor for my scene. My Scentsy Recipe page features a bonus pull out recipe here:

These cookies are THE BOMB! So if you feel like baking you can make real chocolate chip cookies or if you are me... you can just make your house smell like you did :)

Here is my final picture that shows the page mounted in my recipe book with the pullout recipe tucked behind!

I just thought these were too cute not to share! I hope you enjoyed them! If you want to try the Scentsy Recipe... you can visit my Scentsy Website to purchase any Scentsy products you may need if you don't have a consultant. Thanks all! Have a Scent-Sational Day!

Check out my Punch Art HONEY BEE!

Good afternoon all!
I am SUPER excited to show you my card today! I designed a really cute HONEY BEE using Stampin Up! punches! I think it turned out adorable!

What do you think? Here are the punches I used to make the bee:

Head: 1 1/4" circle
Eyes: Boho Blossoms flower but between petals like a tear drop
Nose: Circle from Two Step Owl
Body: Ornament Punch with the little tab cut off
Wings: Two Step Bird Punch (the wings)
Legs & Arm: Swirls & Scribbles Die
Antennaes: The stem from Two Step Bird Punch
Hearts on Antennaes from the Two Step Owl Punch

For the wings I stamped the flourish from Priceless in versamark onto vellum cardstock then heat embossed with heat & stick powder then Dazzling Diamonds. After I did that then I punched them out. The "honeycomb" I made using the plastic from the top of a clementine box when you buy the oranges. This is my entry for this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge week 177. Here is the sketch:

Hope you try a bee...they are super cute! If you do be sure and leave a message with your creation I would love to see it!

Happy Bird-Day!

Hi Everyone!
Here is a super cute card that I made using the Two-Step Owl Punch & the Season of Friendship stamp set.

What I did was take the tree from the Season of friendship stamp set and stamped it horizontally so it looks like a tree branch! Then I popped my owl using dimensionals on the branch. I used the Scallop Oval punch to create wings on my owl! I just punched one and cut it in half. The folded wing I did by glueing the wing to the back of the owl, folding it forward and secured with a dimensional. The cute sentiment is from the stamp set Pun Fun! The little cupcake is from the Short & Sweet stamp set. Really quick & cute card! Have a great day all!

Stampin Up! Stamp Sets: Season of Friendship, Pun Fun, Short & Sweet

Paper: Stampin Up! Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Basic Black, DSP - Blueberry Crisp

Ink: Stampin Up! Classic ink pads in Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Old Olive

Accessories: Stampin Up! Two Step Owl Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large & Small oval punches, Scallop border punch, paper piercer set, white gel pen, dimensionals, sponges. Stampin write markers: daffodil delight, melon mambo, real red

I've Got The Blues...

Good Afternoon Everyone! Hope your day has been going well so far! I have a really hard time using the color Not Quite Navy so I challenged myself to make a card using it! I have also been wanting to use my new stamp set Morning Cup so here is what I came up with:

I thought it turned out pretty cute! I stamped the coffee cup on the backside of the DSP Blueberry Crisp paper that I wanted to use because of the heart in the middle. Then I just cute them out and paper pieced it to the cups. I colored my handles using a blender pen & not quite navy ink. This would be a great card for a friend when they have those cold winter time blues!

Stampin Up! Stamp Sets: Morning Cup, Hostess Set Afterthoughts

Paper: Stampin Up! Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, DSP Blueberry Crisp

Ink: Stampin Up! Classic ink pads in Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy

Accessories: Stampin Up! Large & Small Tag Punch, Tag Corner Punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Sponges, 2-way glue pen, blender pen
