High Tide & Lift Me Up

Well the calendar says it's the first day of summer today, but I'm not feeling it here is Washington State.'s on it's way suppose to be in the 80's by the end of the week.  That is good I have a ton of weeds to pull.

On to my 2nd set of card from the Stampin' Palooza.

I have to admit until Michaela presented this card to all of us, I had not bought this set.  Just not one that thrilled me.  I have since used parts of it on another card..  You stamp off almost every stamp first except the birds, the detail light house & the phrase.

So quick & easy & you could use so many different color combos with this.

Product List

Lift me Up..We decided to turn this card into a tri-fold just to have something a little different.

  1. Fold pre-scored body of card, first in half then flip half back again as indicated by sample.     
  2. Stamp small balloon with Versa Mark on the Whisper White & heat emboss with white embossing powder. 
  3.   Stamp the small & large balloon on scrap with Versa Mark & heat emboss with white embossing powder. 
  4.  Stamp clouds with Island Indigo on scrap.
  5.   Die cut balloons & clouds. 
  6. Sponge the background of the Wisper White with Soft Sky on the bottom, Calypso Coral in the middle (sunset affect) & Island Indigo at the top. Keep in mind Island Indigo can be very dark, so sponge off a little on  scrap first.  You can always add more ink, but you can’t take it off. 
  7. Sponge the large balloon with Calypso Coral & Soft Sky on the basket. 
  8.  Attach clouds with glue dots & large balloon with dimensionals.
  9. Stamp phrase with Island Indigo & punch out with Pretty Label Punch.
  10. Sponge around the edge with Island Indigo, attach with dimensionals. 
  11.  Attach to Island Indigo piece. 
  12.  Attach to Z-fold card base. Remember to only tape the edge of the card.

Welcome new 2017-2018 Catalog

OK, so I apologize I have not posted in a while.  June 3rd was my first Stampin' Palooza class, & it was a great success.  But...prepping for that kept me very busy for the last couple of weeks.  We will be doing the next one on Sat. Sept 9th.  So if you live in the area mark your calendar.  More info. to come later.

Wow have you seen the new in colors.  I have to say this year I love them all.

If you have not seen them yet, here you go.  Of course pictures never do them any justice.  You really need to see them up close & personnel.

So today I am going to show you two of the cards we made at the Stampin' Palooza.

This was from the new Eastern Beauty Bundle.  I have to say at first I was not sure about this set.  But when they offered the bundle as a pre-order to demonstrators in April.  I decided I would try it.  We also wanted to use some of the new in colors.  We used Tranquil Tide & Lemon Lime Twist.

This was a great choice for a big group of ladies .  We did a total of 6 projects, & 2 with new techniques.  Well at least new techniques for all these ladies.

Product List

Time To Celebrate.

Another simple card to make, & we used two more of the new in colors.  Berry Burst & Powder Pink.  

I embossed the work celebrate first, then went back & stamped the circles of the embossed image to get it to pop.  A little background stamping with Touches of  Texture & Painters Palette.

Oh So Succulent #2

I have been playing around with the Oh So Succulent, which is one of my favorites, but sad to say is going away.


I stamped the flower from Oh So Succulent in Dapper Denim & the inside with Calypso Coral.  The splatter background is from Gorgeous Grunge.  I then stamped three flowers with Calypso Coral & die cut them out.

Added some Dapper Denim Ribbon then attached the flowers with dimensionals, and don't forget the bling!!  No card is complete with out it.

Hope you enjoyed,

Any questions let me know.

Oh So Succulent

Today I am using the Oh So Succulent stamp set which is unfortunately going away on May 31st.
I got the inspiration for this card from a card my daughter-in-law had made.

I stamped the flowers in Basic Black & with a baby wipe I sponged Calypso Coral on the flowers.  Stamped the Happy Mothers Day & added some Basic Black Bakers Twine.

So stunning, but oh so easy...

Hope you enjoyed,

Big on Birthdays

Today's post will show you haw to use the white water color pencil.  Not something we use very often, but makes a very stunning affect.

On Smokey Slate I stamped the flower from the Birthday Blossoms & the Happy Birthday from Big on birthdays.  I then colored the flowers with the Whisper White colored pencil & the center with the Daffodil Delight Pencil. On the Happy Birthday I colored the flower in Daffodil Delight & the leaves in Whisper White.

Added a few pearls on the bottem & in the center of the flowers.

Stunning but simple card.

Hope you enjoyed,

April Paper Pumpkin

Today I wanted to share some alternative Paper Pumpkin options.  I had a Paper Pumpkin class a couple weeks ago, & this was what I came up with for some options.


So...I don't always follow directions.  These are kind of what the directions say.  I choose not to use the little plastic flowers.

Now here is my alternative ideas.

I used the new Lemon Lime Twist, easily becoming one of my new favorites.

I actually changed this up a bit & took off the Marina Mist circle in the final project, but forgot to re take the picture.  In stead of using the heart shape I die cut a circle & did some layering.

One more using DSP from the Eastern Palace set & just a little Lemon Lime Twist with an Aqua Painter.  How easy is that.

Hope you enjoyed, if your interested in coming to a Paper Pumpkin class check out all the details here.

Also if you live in area their is still time to sign up for the 1st Stampin' Palooza class.  Check out all the details here.
