Mix-It-UP! Monday Love Card

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 product found in the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spot Light Sunday card on the LEFT......
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the RIGHT......
For today's Mix-It-UP! Monday card ........
I used the same layout as I did for my Spot Light Sunday card.
What I did upgrade was the Real Red panel ........
And that was embossed with the 'Large Polka Dot' folder.
I used the same 'Sending Love Designer Series Paper' for my banner.....
But I upgraded the center panel with some 'Silver Glimmer Paper'.....
And I used Clear Embossing Powder on my sentiment.
I also added some 1/8" Silver Ribbon across the top of my DSP banner.
I love how the simple upgrades really changed the look of this already darling 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!

Spot Light Sunday Love Card

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog and 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog.  This card uses several new products from each of those catalogs ........ So let me jump right in with my card share for today.........
This Hello Love card is the perfect combination of bright and happy to give out to that someone special on your card giving list.
I began by positioning a Real Red panel directly onto my Whisper White base card ...... And I created a banner with the 'Sending Love Designer Series Paper' and adhered that down onto the Real Red panel.
I stamped my Hello Love sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock and used my 'Layering Hearts Framelits' to die-cut out the perfect heart for this sentiment.
All that was left to do was create a square and circle layering piece under the heart and the perfect sentiment centerpiece was created.
A pretty quick and easy card that works in any color combination and for any occasion.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share an upgraded version of this very card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Paper Pumpkin - For You

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And do I have a fun card to share with you!  This card was made with my July Paper Pumpkin kit .......... And all I needed to do to create this card was follow the directions that came with this kit.  I'm thrilled with the way this card turned out ........ And want to share that card with you now. 
Today's Paper Pumpkin card uses only the product that was offered in the July Paper Pumpkin kit.
The card is a pocket style card ...... And it's the perfect little card to tuck into someone's lunch box or just leave out for someone to enjoy with their morning coffee.
One of the cute embellishments to this card is this darling little clothespin that clips right to the top of your card.
I think this design and color combination is SIMPLY PERFECT!
 
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!

In My Thoughts

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........
Even though this card was originally intended to be used in the fall ....... I'm using it today for a sympathy card.
I began this card by using my 'Thoughtful Branches' Thinlits dies to create a trio of small leafs along the right hand edge of my Very Vanilla panel.
To create a colored center for the two die-cut leafs ......... I simply flipped my Very Vanilla panel over and attached two small pieces of Mint Macaron and Cajun Craze cardstock over the opening and that allowed the colored cardstock to peek through.
I used the large 'You're In My Thoughts' stamp to create a large Cajun Craze sentiment in the lower left hand corner of that same Very Vanilla panel.
And I tied some Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon across the bottom portion of my Very Vanilla panel.
The Very Vanilla panel was attached to the Crumb Cake base card with Stampin' Dimensionals ....... And all that was left to do was add some 'Gold Sequins' around my card ...... And this card was finished......
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Tag Thursday creation with you ..... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

3D Tuesday-Shooter Glass

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 can be adapted to work with any size shot-glass or little glass container.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.......
This project was prepared for the Christmas Holiday's in mind.......But how cute would this be for a Baby Reveal Party!
I used Peppermint Candies ...... but you could add whatever type of candy or treat that was appropriate for your occasion.
The sentient is held on with some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine ....... and attached with a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals.
The Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine is wrapped around to the front and tied off into a SUPER PRETTY bow.
And that's all it took to create this fun Shooter Glass party favor.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Wine Down Wednesday card creation with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
