June Early Bird Gift

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 the 2018-2019 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.......
 
Check out this pretty gift I made for each of my June Early Bird Drawing Gifts.
I used the 'Share What You Love Embellishment Kit' and packed it full of something pretty.
I created four of the prettiest cards using the 'Share What You Love Suite' and tucked them into this pretty embellishment box.
 Here are the four cards I created for each box.
Each card uses the 'Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper' along with the coordinating 'Love What You Do' stamp set.  One of my favorite elements for these cards are the beautiful 'Pearlized Doilies' that the stamped sentiments sits on.
 And each card opens with a flap up......OR.....flap down style opening.
Once I had all the cards created ...... I wrapped them up with some of the new 'Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon' and tied it up into a pretty bow.  Then all that was left to do was tuck them inside the box and prepare the outside packaging.
Since the Embellishment Box is OH SO BEAUTIFUL by itself ....... All I needed to do was wrap each box with some of the new 'Blackberry Bliss Nature's Twine' and add a stamped scallop sentiment.
And there you have it friends ......... A beautiful creation that turned out to be the perfect Early Bird Gift for each of my June Stamp Camps.

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!

Triple Banner Upgrade 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 added a couple additional products from the 2018-2019 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog to bring this card up to the next stamping level. 
Here is my Spot Light Sunday card from yesterday on the LEFT.....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card for today on the RIGHT.....
The first thing I did for my upgraded card was change the orientation from a landscape card to a portrait card.
I also changed up the layering of my banner flags.  I stacked the banner flags in a cluster and used both Tranquil Tide and Melon Mambo card stock to frame each banner flag.
After I adhered down my 3-banner flags to my 'Delightful Detailed Note Card' ....... I wrapped some 'Very Vanilla Baker's Twine' around the top of my banner flags and tied that up into a pretty bow.
My sentiment was stamped from the 'Stitched All Around' set with Tranquil Tide ink ....... And I matted that 1-3/4" Very Vanilla circle onto a 2" Tranquil Tide circle.
I added three of the 'Share What You Love Artisan Pearls' to my sentiment circle and then added Stampin' Dimensionals before adhering it down onto my note 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!

Triple Banner Card

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2018-2019 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  This card uses several products from that catalog ....... And I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today..........

This card turned out exactly the way I had pictured it in my head.  
(I SIMPLY LOVE WHEN THAT HAPPENS)
I started out with one of the new 'Delightful Detailed Note Cards' and stamped my "Best Wishes" sentiment in the lower right hand corner.  I used the 'Stitched All Around' stamp set and Tranquil Tide ink.
My banner flags were created with the 'Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper' and I backed each one with some Tranquil Tide card stock.
To finish off this darling little card ...... I added some of the new (and I might add YUMMY) 'Metallic Shaded Spruce Ribbon' around the top of my card.  This is one of those ribbons that just screams to be tied up into a pretty bow!
And that's all it took my friends to create this quick and easy little note card.

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!

My Favorite 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 May Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
 
I created this alternate Paper Pumpkin card with the pieces left over from the May Paper Pumpkin kit.
I used the envelope liner that came with this kit and created a pretty panel across the top of my card.  All I needed to do was add some Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow card stock behind that envelope liner panel and I was able to achieve a hardy panel for the front of my card.
I did the same thing with the banner shield that came with the May Kit.  I mounted that banner shield to a Mossy Meadow scallop circle that was die-cut from the 'Layering Circle Framelits'.
And the final touch for my card was adding some new 'Nature's Twine' to the top of my card ...... And teaming it up with one of the coordinating envelopes that came with this kit.
 And that's all it took to create this great looking card in no time flat!

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!

Barn Door 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........

I just have to ask......
Who does't LOVE a good barn door card???
The magic of this card ....... Is with the help of a couple washers (found at the hardware store) and some 'Foam Adhesive Strips' and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals'.  Once you have all those pieces ....... this card is SUPER EASY to create.
The 'Barn Door' stamp set creates the PERFECT looking barn door image......
And the 'Sliding Door Framelits' makes the mechanic for this card come together in a FLASH!
 A little bit of stamping ....... 
And your barn door card will be completed in a JIFFY!
Check out the Stampin' UP! website for the AMAZING VIDEO on how to assemble this FUN.....INTERACTIVE card.
