Kindness note card

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend! Spring is finally upon us and the weather is warming up here in north Florida. I'm happy to share with you today a pretty one-layer thank you note card I created with the Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic stamp set and coordinating butterfly punches. OMG, another set that I just love!

Stampin' Up! never disappoints - you can always count on all the stamps in each set coordinating so it's always easy to pull a card together. This one was super easy (my favorite kind) and only took a few minutes. I created a top-fold card base from Crumb Cake cardstock and inked the edges (front and inside). I stamped the sun in Crushed Curry ink in the top left corner, then randomly stamped the rows of small circles across the bottom in Sahara Sand ink after stamping off once. Next, I inked up the leaves stamp in Mossy Meadow ink, stamped off once, then stamped twice in the lower left corner without re-inking. I repeated that process in the upper right corner. Then I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner in Cherry Cobbler ink.


I stamped both butterflies in the Cherry Cobbler ink, and punched the small one out with the Bitty Butterfly punch and the larger one with the Elegant Butterfly punch. I added some clear Wink of Stella to both butterflies for some shimmer and affixed them to the front with narrow pieces of a Stampin Dimensional. I wrapped some natural twine around the card twice and tied it in a bow, adding a small dot of Multi Medium Matte adhesive to the back of the bow to adhere it to the card.


On the inside, I stamped the leaves twice as I did on the front, along with a butterfly, and left the remainder blank to write a thank-you note.


I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Crumb Cake (#120953)
  • Stamps: Kinda Eclectic (#135350)
  • Ink: Crushed Curry (#131173), Sahara Sand (#126976), Mossy Meadow (#133645), Cherry Cobbler (#126966)
  • Accessories: Bitty Butterfly Punch (#129406), Elegant Butterfly Punch (#127526), clear Wink of Stella, natural twine, Multi Medium Matte

I hope you've enjoyed this project using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! I'm back today to share a pretty birthday card I created with the super awesome Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics stamp set! OMG, I LOVE this stamp set! I also used the Hardwood background stamp and the Butterflies Thinlits dies. I'm really pleased with how this turned out! The Hardwood stamp makes an amazing background!


I'm getting more and more practice in with my Spectrum Noir markers, and as I've said a thousand times... I LOVE the way these blend! The colors are so rich and gorgeous. I layered the focal image on a pretty die cut and gold embossed the birthday sentiment on a hand-cut flag.


This butterfly is my favorite... I layered a glittered butterfly on top of the absolutely gorgeous gold filigree butterfly and then added some glittered gumdrops to the body.


I stamped the caterpillar/butterfly sentiment on a layered panel on the inside. I love butterflies and what they represent... life is a constant process, and people blossom and change. :)

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Very Vanilla (#101650), Early Espresso (#119686), Marco's Gold Mirror cardstock

to a great Friend

Hi everyone! I'm happy to share my *warm weather* project with you - my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #50 - Anything Goes! We're being sponsored this time by All Dressed Up Stamps, yours truly and DRS Designs! Come play with us - we know you love Anything Goes! ;)

I chose the Little Best Friends digi by Elisabeth Bell Designs for my step card. And I have to be honest... I have no clue in this world where I found the measurements for this step card. I found a white one on my scrap table which was with a digital image I bought and printed about a year ago! LOL! So I flattened that sucker out and replicated it in ivory! So fun!


Isn't this image just absolutely adorable?! I know with so many gorgeous winter projects we're seeing, it's nice to see one depicting beach weather! I just love it! I colored the image and added some sugar sand for a little dimension. I cut it with a square die and matted it on a glitter silk cardstock fancy die cut. I popped flourish and bow die cuts on the left side along with the sentiment, also cut with a die and matted on a pretty die cut.


I completed this adorable step card with a silver crab charm and some teal Gumdrops.


I'd love to enter this step card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Cherry Red cardstock; Core'dinations Glitter Silk cardstock; scraps of K & Co. paper (but I'm not sure which - sorry!)
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Simply Wonderful
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo; Spectrum Noir: BT4, TN1, TN3, TN5, CR6, F3, F7, BGR1, BGR2
  • Dies: Spellbinders Fleur de Lis, Classic Squares and Classic Ovals; Magnolia Doohickey Swirl; Impression Obsession Small Bow
  • Accessories: sink of Stella silver fine point pen, SweetStamps sugar sand, Martha Stewart crab charm, YNS teal Gumdrops

Be sure to check out all the fun goodies at the All Dressed Up Stamps and DRS Designs shops! I know you'll find something you just can't live without! ;) Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!

Lotus Blossom Note Cards

Hi everyone! I'm back today to share an array of gorgeous note cards I created with the new Stampin' Up! Lotus Blossom stamp set! I fell in love with this set the minute I saw it! It's definitely a "must have" and it's available for free (yep, you read that right) January 6th through March 31st! For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you get a free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! I'd love it if you'd shop with me HERE! ;)

I did the assembly-line thing... started by creating 18 top-fold card bases from Whisper White cardstock. Next, I used the #4 die in the SB A2 Matting Basics A die set to cut 18 panels of Whisper White to stamp on. Then I cut mats from Island Indigo, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Perfect Plum and Rose Red cardstock (three of each) using the #3 die from the SB A2 Matting Basics B die set.

This stamp set is a three-step stamping process using one stamp pad but achieving the look of three shades of ink. Oh, it's so cool! I'll demonstrate stamping one of the trios, since the process is the same for all of them. I held each panel in place with a post-it note and marked the center. There is a tab at the top of each of the three stamps to line them up when stamping. I inked up the smallest image and stamped it full-strength.


I inked up the medium image next, stamped off once on scrap paper to lighten the color of the ink, then stamped on top of the first image. It's starting to take shape! ;)


Then finally I inked up the largest stamp, stamped off twice on scrap paper to lighten the color of the ink just a little more, then stamped on top of the first and second images. Aren't these just gorgeous, like water color?! Love, love, love!


I stamped the stems in Always Artichoke, and then the sentiments in the same ink as the flower images. The sentiment on the bottom is from the Lotus Blossom stamp set. The sentiments on the top and right are from the Six Sided Sampler stamp set. Then, once all the stamping was finished, I layered the focal images on the coordinating color of cardstock and adhered the panels to the card bases.


I repeated the process for the rest of the cards in each color, and then assembled the sets. Here is a complete set.


And here is the set tucked into a clear box with a ribbon, ready for giving! And I forgot to include the envelopes for the photo! LOL! How's that for a pretty little gift (with the envelopes, of course)?! :)


I'd love to enter this set of note cards into the following challenges:
Frame Collage Funky Bright Home Decor Upcycled Vintage Frames Hollywood Regency Apartment Decor Quirky Decor

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White (#100730), Island Indigo (#122923), Crushed Curry (#131199), Cherry Cobbler (#119685), Cajun Craze (#119684), Perfect Plum (#101889) and Rose Red (#102544)

I love the blue and brown ribbon together, and the vintage button in the center of the bow is the perfect touch!


And look at this gorgeous lace! Another perfect touch to this vintage card! Love it! ;)


I left the inside basically blank (to use as a note card), simply stamping two words which are a continuation of the front die cut sentiment.

And of course, our challenge is to create a project with at least one button and one bow. I'm covered with six buttons and two bows! ;)


I kept the inside simple, as I generally do, stamping the sentiment in black. I L.O.V.E. this sentiment and it was so appropriate for this card!

love everything about you

** 3/7/15 Top 3 at Shopping Our Stash! **
** 3/10/14 Top 5 at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! **

Hi everyone! I'm stoked to share with you another 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project! I love shaker cards and don't seem to create enough of them. This one has a 'Love' theme which I created for our February Love with Ribbon challenge, so come on over and play with us! Better hurry, though, because this challenge ends today!

Love doesn't just come in pink so I zeroed in on some green (my favorite color) for this project. The striped background is stamped in two colors, then I added a couple layered panels using some coordinating 6x6 papers. I used the scrumptious Lemon-Lime crinkle ribbon from the LG Bundle which is absolutely gorgeous!


I created the frame for the shaker element with a couple SB dies, then layered the clear cardstock, the white fun foam and the white cardstock panel behind the frame. I stamped the sentiment in green ink first and stamped it a second time in Versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I put a small pinch of several different colors of tiny hearts and stars confetti in the shaker mechanism before closing it all up. Love it!


Now look at this bow! I can't boast enough about this gorgeous hand-dyed ribbon! This color is just amazing!


I normally keep the insides of my cards fairly simple, and I used a new border stamp for this one. Something a little different. :)


So happy to enter this shaker card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Premium White cardstock, GKD Black Onyx and Fresh Asparagus cardstock, GKD Garden Tour 6x6 patterned paper, Heartfelt Creations Clear cardstock

hello note card

Hi everyone! It's time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for CCM #133 - Stripes which is being hosted by yours truly! Come play with us! I love the aspect of stripes... we see them all over the place in every facet of life! This is my last post as a Crafty Cardmakers and More DT member, and I want to thank Lin and the entire CCM DT for having me along for the past six months. I've thoroughly enjoyed myself!

I created a fun 'hello' note card with embossed stripes and pretty patterned paper stripes. This was such a fun project and so easy. I have lots of 6x6 paper packs - I think I'm going to make several sets of these to give as gifts. The diagonal lines background was stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder, then I inked the edges which gives it a little dimension.


I cut the hello die cut, coated it with clear Wink of Stella and set it aside. I cut strips of varying widths of patterned paper and inked the edges of all of them. I adhered them to a diagonal piece of charcoal brown cardstock and adhered the hello die cut. I affixed the panel with 3-D foam pads to the card base. I left the layered panel on the inside blank to write my own note.


Proud to enter my note card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Charcoal Brown cardstock; GKD Poppy Prints 6x6 patterned papers
  • Stamps: Impression Obsession Diagonal Lines
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! Sahara Sand, Versamark
  • Dies: Mama Elephant Hello Script
  • Accessories: Ranger clear embossing powder, clear Wink of Stella

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in our Stripes challenge this time! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)

Stampin' Up! orders

Hi everyone! Just a quick post to publicly thank those of you who have ordered Stampin' Up! with me but checked out as a Guest... I don't know who to thank!

Please don't check out as a Guest. I like to send a thank you note and some sort of crafty goody to my Stampin' Up! fans and I can't do that if I don't know who the order came from! ;)

Thanks again and big hugs,
Leslie

P.S. And while I'm on the subject of Stampin' Up!, don't be shy... visit my new blog, Love To Scrap! with SU and follow me there too! I'm slowly trying to build my Stampin' Up! community with written tutorials (I don't do video) on projects I'm doing with the very awesome Stampin' Up! products! Thanks so much! :)

More big hugs,
Leslie

From this day forward

Hi everyone! I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I'm guesting for Fantasy Stampers this month and I'm happy to share my Midway Motivational Post for Challenge #30 - Pretty in Pink going on right now! Come play with us!

I created an embossed CAS wedding card using Stampin' Up! mosaic stamps with coordinating punch and embossing folder. The front and inside sentiments are from Leave Memories which has sadly gone out of business. This stamp set is one of my favorites because of the wonky carefree feel that can be used on a classy or grunge project. I just love it.


I heat embossed the mosaic elements with silver embossing powder, punched them out and embellished them with pink glitter Gumdrops. The butterfly, from another Stampin' Up! stamp set, was stamped in pink and punched with a coordinating punch. I added wire antennae and a butterfly trail with tiny pink gemstones.


I layered two pieces of Really Reasonable Ribbon across the bottom, stamped the sentiment in pink and affixed several tiny pink gemstones.


I kept the inside simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.


Happy to enter this card into the following challenge:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White and Bubblegum Pink cardstock; Marco's Venicelux Silver Metallic cardstock
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Mosaic Madness and Papillion Potpourri; Leave Memories One Stamp at a Time
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo, Versamark Dazzle
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up! Modern Mosaic embossing folder, Stampin' Up Mosaic Punch, Stampin' Up! Bitty Butterfly punch, Sweet Stamps fine detail silver embossing powder, YNS pink glitter Gumdrops, tiny pink gemstones, Really Reasonable Ribbon 'Love Is In The Air' January club assortment, silver wire, white fun foam

I hope you've found a little inspiration to create a pretty pink project for our challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)

Love you

** 2/16/15 Winner at Melonheadz Friends! **

Hi everybody! I'm super stoked to share my 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project with you today! I got out my Sizzix Square Flip-Its die set and created a beautiful purple swing card for Valentine's Day. Be sure to come on over and play in our February Love with Ribbon challenge!

I used the absolutely GOR-JUSS Purple Passion Crinkle Ribbon from the Royal Bundle, some of the NEW Lilac Diagonal Striped Ribbon and a Vintage button. I definitely 'glammed' this card up... love me some 3 Girl JAM! ;)


These swing cards are just so much fun and really pack a huge punch. I love the varying shades of purple on this paper which I layered on silver metallic cardstock. The focal image is a super fun three-step stamp by Stampin' Up! that I stamped with one ink but actually looks like three. I added a bling flourish for a little interest. And how about that yummy ribbon and bow?!


I embossed the age-old XOXO Hugs and Kisses sentiment on the front in white embossing powder. I was afraid it wouldn't show up on the busy purple background, but it stands out quite nicely. I also used some violet Dot Sparklers across the bottom of both panels.


Here is a shot of the card opening up...


Here it's opened up showing the back of the swing mechanism with the stamped 'Love you' sentiment that I inked and layered on some of the silver metallic cardstock.


And one last close-up of that super awesome ribbon and bow embellished with the vintage button. I just love how this turned out! ;)


Proud to enter my 'love' swing card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Wild Lilac and White cardstock; GKD Parisian Garden 6x6 paper
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Lotus Blossom, GKD Vertical Greetings 2, GKD Lots of Lines
