I Love Us Upgrade

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Mix It UP! Monday and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ....... but I added a couple additional products (found in both the 2018 Occasions Catalog and the 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Remarkable/InkBig card from yesterday on the left.........
And today's upgraded Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the right.
Today's card is a BEAUTIFUL upgrade from the card I share with you yesterday.
I used my Simply Score Board to score a 1/4" and 1/2" embossed edge around the top and bottom portion of my Rich Razzleberry panel.
To create the pretty heart on the front of my card ...... I used the 'Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack' that is a FREE Sale-a-Bration item in the 2018 Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  I stamped the "I Love You" in the center of my heart........And I used the 'Flourishing Phrases' set to stamp that sentiment.  All I needed to do was use my 'Layering Circle Framelits' to crop out a Whisper White circle and then matted it with a Silver Foil Scallop Circle.
That same 'Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack' had this LOVELY "I Love Us" card. I trimmed that card down to 2-7/8" x 3-1/4" and then matted it to a Silver Foil cardstock panel. 
To pretty up that panel just a tad ...... I wrapped some 'Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon' to the top and tied a pretty 'Silver Baker's Twine' bow in the center.
A Whisper White 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" panel was tucked behind the Rich Razzleberry panel and the Scallop "I Love You" circle was adhered to the bottom portion of my card.
I'm just crazy about both of these cards.....
Do you have a favorite?????
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday creation with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

January Remarkable/InkBig Blog Hop

 Remarkable/InkBig January Blog Hop
Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Kards by Kadie or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the amazing projects prepared for you.
This just happens to be the PERFECT Valentine's Day card for my husband.   It says everything I want to say to him.
I embossed two score lines around the outer edge of my Rich Razzleberry panel.  I scored a 1/4" and 1/2" line with my Simply Score Board ........ and that gave me a perfect embossed area around that Rich Razzleberry panel.
I grabbed my FREE Sale-a-Bration 'Sweeet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack' and picked out this pretty "I LOVE US" card.  All I needed to do was trim that card down to 1/2" x 2-1/2" ...... And then I matted it to a 3/4" x 2-3/4" Whisper White panel.
My large scallop circle was created with the help of the 'Layering Circles Framelits' and 'Stitched Shapes Framelits'.  The pretty Rich Razzleberry heart image was also a card from the FREE Sale-a-Bration 'Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack'.  I just grabbed my 'Paper Snips' and fussy cut out the heart before adhering it to my Whisper White circle.
For an added touch of pretty........I stamped my "I Love You" sentiment in the center of the heart.  I used the 'Flourishing Phrases' set and some Rich Razzleberry ink.
The final touch for my card was adding a pretty bow with the new 'Silver Baker's Twine' to the top of my layered circles ....... And I also added one Rich Razzleberry heart from the 'Brights Enamel Shapes' and two Silver hearts from the 'Metallic Enamel Shapes. 
Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently, you are on my blog – Kards by Kadie, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.

December Alternate Card

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And I would like to share with you the project I created using the December Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
I'm just crazy for the way this card turned out.
I started out by using my 'Layering Circle Framelits' and die-cut the Calypso Coral floral laser die-cut piece that came with this kit.  Next, I die-cut a layered Whisper White circle frame and added that to the top of my Calypso Coral piece. 
I added pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals to the backside of the Calypso Coral circle and adhered that to my Whisper White panel.
My sentiment was stamped onto a Whisper White oval piece ....... And then matted onto a punched out Calypso Coral 'Tailored Tag Punch' piece. 
I wrapped some 'Peek-a-boo Peach Baker's Twine' around the center of my Whisper White panel and tied it up into a pretty bow. 
All that was left to do was adhere the Whisper White panel to my Whisper White card base and I called this card finished.  What do you think?
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to participate in the Remarkable/InkBig Blog Hop .......... I have created a darling card and hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that hop.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Triple Scallop Thank You Tag

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Tag Thursday.  Today, I will feature a tag I created and show you how easy it is to use minimal supplies to create a SUPER PRETTY THANK YOU TAG.  Now that you have the details for my Tag Thursday creation .........Let's jump right in with my tag share for today........
This thank you tag came together with a GREAT new punch that is featured in the new 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog.
I used the new 1-1/8" Scallop Circle Punch and punched out three 'Silver Foil' scallops.  Next I went with a SASSY & FUN color combination (Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Elegant Eggplant) and punched out a 1" circle in each of those colors.
Using the same color combination as I used for the 1" circles ........ I grabbed my 3/4" circle punch and added one circle to the top of each 1" circle.  The final step to finishing off each of my scallop circles was adding one of the SUPER FUN 'Tutti-frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins' to each of the 3/4" circles.
I used the 'Vertical Greetings' set and some 'Silver Embossing Powder' to create my thank you sentiment ..........
And finished this tag off with some of the YUMMY 'Lemon Lime Twist 3/8" Mini Striped Ribbon'.
Before I knew it ....... I had a SUPER HAPPY thank you tag created ....... And it was ready to be attached to a sweet gift I was giving to a good friend.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share some Friends Friday creations with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Flying Home Card

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Wine-Down Wednesday.  My middle of the week card feature for today will hopefully offer you some inspiration and provide you with some motivation to keep you moving through your busy week.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today........
When I finished this card........I said to myself......
I started this card off with a panel of Chocolate Chip cardstock that was run through the Big Shot using the 'Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder'.
Next, I trimmed down a panel of the 'Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper' and ran the top section through the Big Shot using the largest 'Layering Circles Framelits' just at the top edge of that DSP panel.
I stamped the birds in the nest image from the 'Flying Home' set and used my Stampin' Blends to color that image in.  My 'Layering Circles Framelits' were also used to die-cut both the stamped image and the Chocolate Chip matted circle.
Here's a close-up picture of how my little nest of birds looked after I had it all colored in.
All that was left to do was stamp my sentiment with the 'Heartfelt Blooms' Sale-a-Bration set and use the 'Layering Ovals Framelits' to die-cut both the stamped sentiment and the Chocolate Chip scallop oval piece.
And that is all it took to create this darling little "Thinking of You" card for someone very special.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow with a Tag Thursday creation to share with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Mini Gable Box

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends
My blog post for today is 3-D Tuesday.  That means today I have a fun little 3-D project to share with you.  This project is SUPER FUN to create and the product is featured in both the 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog and 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' UP! Catalog.  Let's jump right in with my 3-D project share for today.......
This is going to make the PERFECT Valentine's gift for a dear friend!
I started this project out by assembling one of the new 'Silver Mini Gable Boxes' that are featured in the 2018 Occasions Catalog (page 13).  These little boxes measure 4" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" and are the perfect size for filling with all kinds of fun surprises (Just wait till you see what I filled mine with).
I covered the front panel with some 'Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper'......
And wrapped some new 'Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon' (page 23) and some SUPER YUMMY 'Berry Burst 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon' (page 13) around the center of the DSP panel.  To finish off the front panel ...... I added a darling little sentiment piece that was made using the new 'A Good Day' stamp set (page 17).
I topped my Gable Box off with more of the 'Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon' along with a long strand of the 'Silver Mini Sequin Trim'. 
I used the new 'Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie (page 13) to fill the inside of my Gable Box......
And then I tucked two Ink Spots and a two stamps on the inside of my box.
Each Ink Spot and Stamp was individually wrapped and topped off with a pretty ribbon.
Turns out this Gable Box has made the perfect little Valentine's Day gift
for someone very special.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Wine Down Wednesday card with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
