Flower Pot Fun with Window Box Thinlits

This card is created using the Window Box Thinlits Dies and Window Shopping Stamp Set. It was inspired by my sweet friend and customer, Rosanne who purchased the bundle and asked me to help her learn how to use these products. While the thinlits are designed to make a box, there are lots of fun things you can create with them. I wanted to show the versatility of this stamp set and bundle by showing both a card and box.

Here is the card we made at my July club events. This is also one of the July/August Free Card Kits customers receive with qualifying orders through my online store. For more details about my FREE Card Kit program click HERE.




While you can use a piece of designer series paper in behind this die cut shape, I wanted to make my own. I simply took a 3" x 3" piece of Watercolor Paper and did a watercolor wash over the surface using a variety of colors. In the card above and close up below, I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Ink Refills with an Aqua Painter to do my watercolor wash. I think this color combo looks really pretty with the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive ribbons.



I played around with other colors too and my club members even got to mess with some other ribbons too to make it their own. It was fun to see the different color combinations people came up with. In the close up below I used a Cherry Cobbler Ink Refills instead of the Real Red since I used the Cherry Cobbler ribbon for the "pot".



This is the pair of projects made by Erica at our club event. Since she made her little "air bow" with a piece of 1/8" Calypso Coral ribbon, she asked for some strips of Calypso Coral Cardstock to tie the colors together. I love how hers turned out and as a result I put out a bunch of cardstock strips in this color and Old Olive for people to play with if they wanted. It's so fun when people change up a project and make it their own!



So, I also showed my clubs how to make these little boxes using the Window Box Thinlits Dies. Everybody enjoyed seeing the versatility of this set of thinlits, especially Rosanne! As a little suprise, she got to take home the black box with silver glimmer paper. It's always easier to create something when you have a real live example. There are lots of videos on YouTube if you need some help making one of these boxes. That's how I learned and it was very helpful!



The video ahead includes step by step instructions for making the card shown in this post. If you watch it and find it useful, please give it a thumbs up and consider subscribing to my You Tube channel and/or share it with friends!

Beach Scene with High Tide and Colorful Seasons

This card combines the High Tide Stamp Set with the Colorful Seasons Product Suite. This lovely beach scene just makes me feel calm when I look at it. This card was CASE'd from Pinterest, was one of the cards my clubs made in July and is also one of my FREE Card Kits for July and August. For more details about my FREE Card Kit program click HERE.



This card can be made with regular Whisper White cardstock, Shimmery White cardstock or Watercolor paper. The card shown here was created with regular Whisper White cardstock with a watercolor wash. I really wanted the crisp white look which is why I chose this paper. It's actually easier to do a watercolor wash on either the Shimmery White cardstock or Watercolor paper, which handle water much better. The Whisper White tends to pill up with too much water and the paper gets somewhat misshapen too. Despite those challenges my card still turned out just fine.

In the sample below I used Soft Suede ink for the grass but Crumb Cake looks really good too. Here's a close up so you can check out all the detail.



In my video tutorial ahead I used the Shimmery White cardstock and it's actually the perfect compromise for the color (it's close to a bright white) and how it handles water. It's hard to really see the difference in the video but if you have all three of these types of paper side by side, you can definitely see the difference. In addition, the Shimmery White cardstock has a beautiful, subtle shimmery sheen which makes it perfect for a beach scene!

For step by step instructions check out my video here:

Daisies in Tranquil Tide with Pinewood Planks

This monochromatic card is made with one of the 2017-2019 In Colors, Tranquil Tide and the Delightful Daisy Suite by Stampin' Up! I love that this suite has a coordinating stamp set, punch and designer paper! This card was CASE'd from Pinterest, was one of the cards my clubs made in July and is also one of my FREE Card Kits for July and August. For more details about my FREE Card Kit program click HERE.



I really love this card but I think my favorite element is the daisies. I stamped the daisy image onto Watercolor Paper, punched it out and used my Aqua Painter to move and blend the color on the petals. Instead of having a discrete image with lines, my image is essentially colored in and looks more natural. I'm really not a big fan of coloring in simply because it takes a lot of time but this daisy was so quick and easy to create! This is my kind of coloring in!



Watch my YouTube Video ahead for all the details about this card. Plus... if you want all the parts and pieces cut and prepared for you check out my Free Card Kit Program by clicking HERE.



I hope you've enjoyed my project today! There's is a compete supply list below with links to my online store. Stay tuned for posts showing the other two July/August card kits coming in the next few days.

Happy Crafting!!!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: August 2017



Welcome to the August Color Fusers Blog Hop featuring Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Basic Black, Smoky Slate and Whisper White. I created two cards for this months challenge, one which used all five colors and the second that only used four.

For these cards I used the Wood Words Stamps Set and the Lovely Words Thinlits paired with three additional sets of framelits for the layering. I love how the Lovely Words Thinlits can be paired with so many other framelits. Today I've used the Stiched Shapes Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits AND the Sweet and Sassy Framelits but they also coordinate with the Layering Ovals Framelits.



Here's how the focal piece was created:

  1. Using a piece of Powder Pink cardstock, die cut the "Hugs Circle" using the Lovely Words Thinlits with the largest circle in the Stiched Shapes Framelits. (photo below)
  2. Color over the whole surface of this die cut piece with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush.
  3. Die cut the largest scallop circle (from the Layering Circles Framelits) out of a piece of Basic Black Cardstock. Then using the second largest circle from the same set of dies, cut a circle out of the middle of the scallop circle. I did this so when I stamped and heat embossed in the next step my edge would be solid black and would not also be heat embossed.
  4. Rub an Embossing Buddy over the surface of the circle, stamp with the floral image from the Wood Words Stamp Set using Versamark ink and heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder. Clean the floral image as this same stamp will be used with some other inks, for the background as well.
  5. Apply glue to the back of the Powder Pink die cut piece all over, using a Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  6. Place the heat embossed circle inside the scalloped edge circle, and lay the Powder Pink die cut piece (with the glue on the back) on top, to glue all three of these pieces together. Place a large acrylic block over the top to help adhere the three pieces together and set aside to dry.



Below is a close up of the focal piece where you can see both the clear embossing in the background and the Wink of Stella on the Powder Pink die cut piece.



For the background on this card I first sponged with the Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Smoky Slate Ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then I stamped the floral image from the Wood Words Stamp Set in THREE different ways and with TWO inks. In the close up below you can see all three ways.

Here are the three ways:
  1. Spray the stamp about three times with water and stamp over the sponged cardstock. Repeat this in three places. I call this "Water Stamping"... makes sense right? Here are a few links to other projects made with Water Stamping:
  2. Using Smoky Slate Ink stamp in three places on the sponged piece. Clean your stamp.
  3. Using Basic Black Archival Ink stamp in three places on the sponged piece.



A few additional details:
  • The Basic Black layer is raised up on dimensionals.
  • Four Rhinestone Jewels were added for a touch of bling.

This second card is similar to the first but is in fact simpler. I did not use the Smoky Slate color but just had to share because I love the way it turned out.



Here are some details and differences:
  • Watercolor paper was used here with a simple Watercolor Wash for the background. Berry Burst and Powder Pink were used for the wash. Click HERE to see a video of how to do a Watercolor Wash.
  • The floral image from the Wood Words Stamp Set were heat embossed with White Embossing Powder in three spots.
  • The focal piece was made using both the Lovely Words Thinlits and the Sweet and Sassy Framelits.
  • Clear Wink of Stella was used on the Powder Pink Die Cut piece as in the first project. You will be able to see this in the close up below.
  • Both the Basic Black layer and the heart are raised up on Stampin' Dimensionals.



I hope you've enjoyed these projects! This group always has some wonderful projects to share so don't miss a thing and hop along to the next blog. There is a complete list of blogs listed below plus a supply list, with links to my Online Store, in case you just have to have some of the products I've used today.

Team Make n' Take #1 for July Gathering

This card is made with the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and the Background Bits Hostess Stamp Set and was one of the Make n' Takes for our July Team gathering. For this card I also followed the Sketch Challenge that my team used for the swaps. To check out all the swap cards click HERE to see that post. Using a sketch made the design process so simple and fun!

I had been playing around with the Color Smoosh Technique with my great friend Cindi and found that it made a great background for this focal point.




This technique is really simple and only requires a few supplies including, a silicone mat, a Spritzer with water, and some ink pads. I used Shimmery White Cardstock but you can also use Water color paper as well. In the photo below you can really see the shimmer. It’s so pretty!



The images are stamped in Basic Black Archival ink. Some images were stamped with full ink and others are stamped off. The focal piece is raised up on dimensionals. A few Rhinestone Jewels and a strip of Silver Glimmer paper were used to add a little bling!



How to do the Color Smoosh Technique:

  • Apply ink directly to the Silicone Mat by rubbing the edge of a few ink pads onto the Silicone Mat.
  • Place the ink as desired making sure not to contaminate your ink pads with ink that has already been applied to the Silicone Mat.
  • Spray the ink on the Silicone Mat till it beads up.
  • Place Shimmery White cardstock over the color and tap it down onto the ink with your fingers OR place a piece of scrap paper over the top and rub. Each will produce a slightly different look
  • There will be residual ink on the Silicone Mat. You can place another piece of Shimmer White cardstock over this ink and “press” again.
Here are some examples of several different “presses”.  Each one is totally unique which is one of the things I love about this technique!



I hope you've enjoyed this project and technique and will try it out. Please comment and let me know what you think. There's also a complete supply list ahead with links to my online store. Please let me know if you have questions or if I can help in any way. I'm here to help!

Team Card Swaps for July Gathering

My Stampin' Up Team Swap theme this month was a Sketch Challenge. (I've shared the sketch toward the end.) It was really fun to focus on a layout as it gave structure and focus for designing the project. I think everyone enjoyed this swap! Some people stuck to the exact sketch and others varied it a bit. It was fun to see each persons take on the layout.

Ammie really went above and beyond with a super cute 3-D item to go with her card. To be fair, for the contest, we only voted on our favorite swap card (not the 3-D item). I know you are going to love all the swaps plus Ammie's 3-D item! With such great swaps it was really hard to choose!


Melissa Riehn's Swap Card featuring The Jar of Love Stamp Set and Everyday Jars Framelits - I love the night sky that Melissa created here! She did a bunch of sponging and then used a glue splatter technique to apply the glitter. She also used a white gel pen in the sky as well. I love what she did!




Jennifer Granstrand's Swap Card featuring The Daisy Delight Stamp Set, Daisy Punch and the Delightful Daisy Designer Paper (DSP) - Jennifer used two stamped, punched, daisies with one being full ink and the second being stamped off. She also sponged two of the layers with Daffodil Delight ink. So crisp and pretty!



Peggy Rishe's Swap featuring the Vertical Greetings Stamp Set and the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP - This box is made with just one piece of cardstock that is cut and scored and is held together with a belly band. There's a photo ahead with the box open so you can sort of see how it is created. What a fun project!






Claudia Keene's Swap - So Claudia was inspired to make this card because she just got a brand new car and was over the top excited about it! She went from a minivan to a much more sporty car. You might even call it a sports car. We were all very excited for her as she shared the details at our team gathering. Congratulations Claudia! One of these days I'll graduate from my minivan too!!!



Katie Spencer's Swap featuring the Big on Birthdays Stamp Set, the Wood Textures DSP Stack and Heat Embossing in Copper - So Katie made her card in the landscape orientation and used a belly band. The copper on the DSP is so pretty plus she used a bit of the copper thread as an accent on the belly band. Very striking don't you think?

Katie was the winner of the contest and she received the NEW Embossing Paste, Palette Knives and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks as her prize! Wahoo Katie!! Congratulations! FYI, for one of the Make n' Takes at this Team Event we played with the new Embossing Paste so I thought it would be fun for that to be the prize. I'll be posting those projects to my blog soon!






Ammie Hintze's Swap featuring the Daisy Delight Stamp Set, Daisy Punch, Delightful Daisy DSP and the Wood Textures DSP Stack - What a lovely cheerful card this is! I just love it! So hold onto your hats because as mentioned earlier Ammie also created a coordinating 3-D item that is just the cutest thing ever! Plus when you pair the two together it just makes me so happy!!! It's the small pleasures in life right?!!!



So, here's the pair... Do you not agree with me on the cuteness factor? Does it make you happy too? She actually made different versions of the wagon too and I ended up photographing two of them. This first one has a wood heart embellishment on the front. Scroll down to see the other one.



Here's a close up of the second version of the wagon. A Boxwood Wreath Embellishment was used on this version. Plus... in each wagon there are FIVE punched flowers with multiple layers in each. She also included a Gold Faceted Gem in the center of each flower!



So I also created a card design using the sketch challenge. It was one of the Make n' Takes for the gathering. I will be sharing that project in a future post so stay tuned.

I hope you've enjoyed all the awesome handiwork of my team! I so enjoyed the swap projects this month. I have a very talented group of women on my team, if I must say so myself! You go girls!


A supply list of the featured products used on the swaps is included ahead for your convenience!

Life is Beautiful with Wood Textures

I love the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and the sentiments in the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set especially the one shown on this card. This sentiment is so positive. I truly believe that a postive attitude and outlook on life really makes a huge difference in creating a happy life. This paired with my love of nature and the Wood Textures designer series paper, just makes me love this simple card! I hope you like it too!!!



The other element that I simply love on this card is the Copper Trim. Check it out here:



I just had to include another close up of this trim! It comes as a 1/4" wide ribbon but it can be manipulated and pulled with your fingers to create all kinds of interesting shapes. On this card I simply played with the ribbon to make it about 5/8" wide, wrapped it around the Basic Black Cardstock (after the DSP was attached) and attached it with Tear & Tape on each end. By doing it this way you are not wasting this lovely trim with a bunch hidden behind. I then tied another piece around the right side of the attached copper trim and fanned out the ends into the shape you can see here. Isn't the shimmer and texture just gorgeous?!

TIP: When I tie my ribbon as I have done here, (often called faux tied ribbon) I leave the ribbon on the roll while I tie. I find that I use less ribbon that way and make sure I have plenty of length to make the tieing easy to do.




A complete supply list is included at the end of this post in case you'd like to purchase any of the products used. You could also earn FREE CARD KITS with your order!

Project Dimensions:
Early Espresso Card Base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"

Eastern Beauty with Gold Heat Embossing

This elegant, simple card was created using the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set and two of the new InColors, Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide. The flower like medallions are heat embossed with gold embossing powder. You can really see the gorgeous gold embossing in the close up photo below.



A Few Details:

  • The Old Olive layer is raised up on dimensionals.
  • Fresh Fig Classic Ink was used to stamp the images inside each "flower"
  • Old Olive Classic Ink was used for the lovely "sprays" of color between each flower petal
  • Tranquil Tide Classic Ink was used to stamp the little swirls here and abouts
  • I used three enamel shapes to finish off these flower type medallions. In the close up below, you can see the Silver Metallic Enamel Shape in the center of the embossed image, offering an extra little elegant touch.



I hope you've enjoyed this project today!

Eastern Beauty Clean and Simple

This card was actually one of the first projects I made with the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set. It's part of the Eastern Palace Suite of products by Stampin' Up!. It's really a Clean and Simple, all purpose card, with what I think is a very summery, bright and cheery color scheme. It's super simple to create these medallions, which were created using four separate stamps!



Lemon Lime Twist, my favorite of the 2017 - 2019 In Colors, was used on this card. It pairs so well with the Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango! Don't you agree? Here's a close up of one of the medallions.



To add a little more interest to this simple card I attached the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock layer to the card base with dimensionals and in the center of each medallion I put a different size Pearl.
The close up above shows the largest size pearl used.

A complete supply list is included at the end of this post in case you'd like to purchase any of the products used. You could also earn FREE CARD KITS with your order. A link to all the details is included ahead!

Project Dimensions:
Old Olive Card Base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
Lemon Lime Twist Layer 3-7/8 x 5-1/8"
Whisper White 3-5/8" x 4-7/8"
