Portfolio Gift For A Friend

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 project share for today.......
I created this PERFECT PORTFOLIO for a friend who got together with me a couple weeks ago and we spent the day stamping.
Here is what was tucked inside the portfolio........
Four coordinating cards and envelopes.
I used the two new products from the 2018 Occasions Catalog to create these cards.
I used the 'Petal Passion Designer Series Paper' to create a pretty panel across the top of my card......
And before adhering that panel down to my Whisper White base card ...... I wrapped some 'Black Baker's Twine' around it and tied it up into a pretty bow.
My thank you sentiment was stamped with the 'Southern Serenade' set and layered with a Real Red circle and the 'Pretty Label' Punch.
The magic of this portfolio is it uses one sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock ...... And with the magic of folding ...... You are able to create this fun pocket on the inside to hold your cards and envelopes.
Here are the scoring lines for the 8-1/2" x 11" piece of Whisper White: On the short side-score at 2 and 6-1/2".  And on the long side-score at 4-1/4" and 5".  You will also want a piece of Basic Black that measures 4-1/2" x 5-1/2".  Score that piece at 1" and 1-3/4".
I was able to reduce down the size of this portfolio and create both notecard size and little 3" x 3" sizes ....... Which I will share with you soon.
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!

Panda 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 upgraded this card with two additional products that are in the 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  
Here is my Remarkable/InkBig Blog Hop card on the LEFT......
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card for today on the RIGHT......
For this upgraded version ........ I began by changing up the orientation!
Next I used the 'Layered Leaves Embossing Folder' on my Lemon Lime Twist panel.  Then I adhered that embossed panel to a Basic Black panel and adhered both of those panels to my Lemon Lime Twist base card.
I stamped my sentiment with the 'Picture Perfect Birthday' set onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I then matted that panel to a small panel of 'Petal Passion Designer Series Paper'.
Before I adhered the sentiment panel to my card ........ I wrapped some 'Basic Black Baker's Twine' around the top and tied it off with a pretty bow.
My panda bear was stamped with the EVER SO POPULAR 'Party Panda' set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog
I stamped the balloon onto a piece of 'Petal Passion Designer Series Paper' and then fussy cut it out and popped it onto my card.
The panda bear is layered onto several circles from the 'Layering Circles Framelits'.
And that's all it took to upgrade this darling little Panda Bear card.
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!

Remarkable/InkBig February Blog Hop

Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop
Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for February 2018. This month our theme is Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! cards featuring animals.  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.
Who isn't a HUGE FAN of the Sale-a-Bration 'Party Panda' set! 
I started this card out with two panels of the new 'Petal Passion Designer Series Paper'.  After I adhered those two panels down to the left hand side of my Lemon Lime Twist base card ...... I used my 'Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker' and added some stitch lines around the outer edge of that DSP panel.
My sentiment was stamped with Basic Black ink and the new 'Picture Perfect Birthday' set.....
And then I stamped the OH SO ADORABLE panda from the 'Party Panda' set.  I matted my little party panda (with the help of the 'Layering Circle Framelits') to a Lemon Lime Twist circle and Basic Black scallop circle.
All I needed to do was stamp two balloons onto my Lemon Lime Twist base card and draw in a string with my 'Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker'.
For a final detail touch ....... I added several new 'Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes' to the inside of each balloon.
So there you have it friends.........
A fun little animal card for the Remarkable/InkBig Blog Hop.

Thoughts For You 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 January Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
The alternate card that I created for today went outside the box for both the sentiment on the front of my card ........ And the sentiment for the inside of my card.
I began by stamping (with VersaMark) my "thoughts For You" sentiment from the 'Best Bird' set ....... and then I sprinkled 'Copper Embossing Powder' over the top and heat set it.
The pretty ribbon that was included in the January kit was used to close my card.....
And for the inside of my card I stamped a beautiful sentiment from the 'Petal Palette' set.  I did the same copper embossing technique to the inside sentiment.
The final touch for this card was adding three of the Rich Razzleberry enamel dots (that came with the January kit) to the sentiment on the front of my card.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Spot Light Sunday card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Festive Friday (on Wednesday) Challenge

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!

Today I am participating in the Festive Friday Challenge (and yes......today is only Wednesday).  This is a new challenge opportunity and also the very first week for this fun challenge.  Each new challenge runs for 2 weeks.......so you have lots of time to head over and join in the fun.  Check it out HERE.
Let's jump right in with my challenge share for today.....
How's this for the perfect Valentine's card!
I started this card out by using the 'Sweet & Sassy Framelits' to die-cut a small sassy heart on my Rich Razzleberry cardstock panel.  After my sassy heart was die-cut ...... I ran that panel of cardstock through the Big Shot using the new 'Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder'.
To fill in the die-cut heart ....... I cut a small piece of the new 'Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper' and tucked it behind the die-cut heart.
I used the 'Hanging Garden' set to stamp my sentiment.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and then I sprinkled 'Gold Embossing Powder' over the sentiment and heat set it.  Talk about bringing some SPARKLE & SHINE to my sentiment ....... that embossing step did the trick! 
The final step was wrapping some 'Powder Pibk Love Mini Tinsel Trim' to the top of my Rich Razzleberry panel ....... And then the Rich Razzleberry panel was ready to be adhered down onto  my Whisper White base card.
Just the perfect little Valentine's Day card that will be going out to someone special today!
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!
