Up and Away

I cased this card from another Demonstrator and I can not find it again for the life of me. I changed up the designer paper for mine and I did not add the rhinestones to it but I love it anyway. I used the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. I did some distressing on the paper with ink and a distressing tool. I also used a paper crimper to make the tag with Soft Suede and Copper Trim.  I got the crimper from my Grandfather’s painting tools. He used to use it to make sure he got all the paint out of his oil tubes of paint.

Happy Craftin,

Eastern Palace Sunflowers

Hello, fellow crafters! I have been on vacation visiting my grandchildren. So I have not been able to come up with a new project for you. Today I will share how to do this wonderful Eastern Palace Sunflower card.

I have a shipment at my house right now waiting for my return … I am extremely anxious to get to my new goodies. It will have to wait while I enjoy my wonderful time with my daughter and grandkids…

Vintage leaves

Eastern Palace Sunflowers

This card was tricky with all the layers but really fun to make.

  1. Cut out your sunflowers 4 times total. Two of the times will be on Pumpkin Pie cardstock (5 1/4 x 4 inches) Do not cut it out of here. Just make sure you curl your petals up. You will also cut out two from Daffodil Delight cardstock. Trim these out of the cardstock and curl them up as well.
  2. Make your center (seeds) with Early Espresso that has been embossed with softly falling embossing folder. I also sprayed some bronze spritz (purchased from Hobby Lobby) to it as well. You will punch it out with 1- 1 1/4 circles. Depends on your preference.
  3. Stamp 4 leaves on Old Olive cardstock with Garden Green ink and cut them out.
  4. Adhere your Daffodil Delight flowers with dimentionals to the Pumpkin Pie ones. You can then add your centers.
  5. Place your leaves where ever you want them leaving room for your sentiment at the top.
  6. Stamp your sentiment on Crushed Curry with Early Espresso (my sentiment came from Ribbon of Courage) and punch out with the new Pretty Label Punch. I also added some retired early espresso dots. I also added a bit of early espresso on the edge of the cut out with a sponge dauber.
  7. Adhere this to the top of the card
  8. Place a piece of Copper Trim. The nice thing about this particular new trim is it will hold its shape when you mold it. I pulled at different sections to give it some character.
  9. Place this on a Crushed Curry base of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded in half.

That’s it. I just love the inspiration that this card brings. Such a happy card.

For this card you will need the following:

I am so excited to show you all the stuff that I ordered I can not stand it. I will do a live video on my Facebook page when I get a chance to open it. In the meantime check out the new planner Stampin’ Up! came up with. I will be setting mine up when I get back.

Flourish Wedding card

I have not had a chance to really play with Flourish Thinlits, an oldie but goodie that has been carried over to the new annual catalog. One of my dearest and closest friends from Jr High School brother got married just recently so I made this stunning card for them. It is really very simple once you have the right tools. The only retired item I used here is the Softly falling petals from last years Occasions Catalog that retired this past May.

Flourishing framelits

A simple and stunning Wedding card

I simply cut everything out in Whisper White cardstock and embossed all the text in silver embossing powder. As you will see in the bottom image I used just a bit of shimmery gray that I got from a hobby store just to add something to the inside.

Rose Wonder

Inside of the wedding card

For this card, you will need:

On my list, I am including the Softly Falling textured embossing folder. I feel this will work just as beautifully as the Softly falling petals folder worked here. I also added some retired pearls.

I think this card would be perfect with just about any color you choose for any occasion.
For those of you that came to the catalog launch, I do hope you had a good time. Congrats go to Pam who won the Hostess Rewards. I do have another hostess code so if you want to order any of those new wonderful products be sure to use this Hostess Code XDQY3TB9 .
I have a complete order in, which I ordered on the 1st of July as soon as I could order. Hehe. I can not wait to get it in my hot little hands. Unfortunately, it will be in on Friday and I will not be home… insert Sad face here. I promise I will post a video of my opening my box when I g
Happy Craftin,

Eastern Palace Class

I was not too crazy about the Eastern Palace bundle at first. Then I saw some Pintrest Posts and some post from a Demonstrator group on FB that I follow. I got this card idea from them, I wanted to send you a link or give credit but I can not find the post anymore. I hate that.

I have other ideas rolling around in my head but my wonderful hubby is home with me, so spending time in the craft room is in short supply right now. Anyway, I had a class last week and we did this card along with another card using the Eastern Palace Bundle that I made into sunflowers.  I also handed out new Catalogs to the folks that came to class. If you need yours please email me at amy@stampinwithaheart.com and I will make sure you get yours.  The ladies are super stoked and excited for the catalog launch coming in June. I must say so am I.

Pelican Park cards

Breaking up is hard to do. These cards were made at my last class at the Pelican Park. I used several items that will be retiring at the end of the month. I just love some of these products. I am happy to say that Stampin’ Up! has come up with some wonderful new products to fill the void of some of these. Woodgrain Embossing folder will be leaving us, but just wait to see the new replacement for it!!!  OMG!!!

colored Burlap

This is the original Card I made and a friend of mine decided she needed it for a sympathy card.

 

Woodgrain embossing folder

This is the card I made for class using a Bronze Bo Bunny spritzer.

For this cards I was inspired from a facebook group I follow for Demonstrators. What was amazing is that she used framelits to cut the burlap. Yes that us right framelits to cut burlap. It works really well. I am sure that it would work for any other fabric. I have even seen where they use embossing folders on fondant for icing. It is just crazy to me the things people do with their crafting.

For this one you need the following:

You will also need a piece of burlap any color and I also used a bit of Pool Party Ribbon that has been retired.

Now this card is pretty simple as well. It includes some left over product from Salebration purchase. I am using the Metallic ribbon, the Delicate Lace stamp set, and small 1/4 inch white ribbon.

Falling Petals on very vanilla cardstock Inside of the cards says “Because I know you” also in copper.

I think I love this one the best. It is a perfect lift me up card for someone dealing with some hard times.

Swirly Scibbles Thinlits Dies

Swirly Scribbles and Mickey Mouse

I work for an Allergist on Tuesdays. He absolutely loves Micky Mouse. He and his wife travel there frequently. Well his birthday was the first of this month. I asked him what his favorite cake was. He stated that he like just about anything. So I asked him what was his favorite thing that I baked? He came up with my Mexican Brownies. Even in his late 60’s he is still a child at heart. So my coworker and I baked and picked up some wine for his birthday. This was the card I made for him and click the link in this post for my recipe for the brownies.

This idea came from Janet Wakeland, Barcelona Spain. I could not find a website for her for you to follow. Thank you Janet for you inspiration.

Mickey Mouse

Swirly Scribbles meets Disney’s Mickey Mouse

Here is what you need to create this particular card. The Swirly Scribbles dies are going to be in the new catalog. I am so happy about that because I just got them and never really got a chance to use them.

Star Blast Congratulations Card

Star Blast Edgelit dies and the Birthday Blast Stamp set will be retiring at the end of the month. (sniff Sniff) I do not even feel I have had much of a chance to play with this set. It has been a lot of fun.

I have a friend from Jr High School that decided to go back to school late in life. She already had a degree but wanted more for herself. I am still amazed by her. She has 3 boys and a full-time job and she went back to school anyway! I am not sure I even remotely have that kind of drive. I am so happy for her. She is graduating soon so I wanted to show her that I was proud of her for all her accomplishments. Raising 3 wonderful young men, being a loving wife for over 20 years and counting and being a full-time employee. Amazing!! My hat is off to all of those women out there who can accomplish this.
