3D Tuesday - Gift Box Folio

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 the PERFECT GIFT to make for that someone special on your gift giving list.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.
My good friend Lynn from Michigan shared a UTube video with me on how to make this fabulous gift box folio and I just knew the minute I saw this fabulous gift box that I wanted to make one.  (I have not been able to track back to the video for this project but will continue looking and when I find it .......I will link it here.) 
I was wanting to create a package of cards and tags for my friend and this was the perfect packaging idea for me to do that.
It was the PERFECT project for someone very special in my life and it came together quickly and was a real WOW FACTOR kind of gift.
When you open the package up ....... There is room for two cards......two tags.....and two little 3x3 note cards tucked inside.
The box is secured closed with some Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon......
And here is a sample of what all I tucked inside my folio.
This made the perfect way for me to say 'thank you' to someone very special in my life!
 
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!

Mix-It-UP! Monday - Upgraded Enjoy

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 (found in the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
So here is my Spot-Light Sunday card on the left......
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the right.......
For today's card I added some Basic Black Baker's Twine and one additional circle layer and that's all it took to kick this up to the next stamping level.
I stamped the same Peekaboo Peach splatter marks all over my Whisper White base card......
And for my sentiment ...... I added one additional Peekaboo Peach Scallop Circle layer to really make my sentiment POP!
The topper for this upgraded card was adding some Solid Basic Black Baker's Twine around my DSP panel and that was all I needed to do to upgrade my card for today.
So there you have it friends......
Two versions of a totally fun card......
Do you have a favorite version of this card?

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday project with you ..... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Spot Light Sunday - Enjoy Your Day

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the new 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  This card uses several new products from that catalog ...... So let me jump right in with my card share for today.........
This card uses some new In-Color DSP and ink........Along with a fun and snappy 'Badges and Banner' stamp set.
I began this card by using the 'Painter Palette' stamp set to create some fun splatter all over my Whisper White base card using Peekaboo Peach ink.
Next I stamped my 'Badges and Banners' sentiment onto a Whisper White cardstock piece using the new Flirty Flamingo ink.  It was a snap cutting out my stamped badge with the help of the new 'Best Badge' punch.  I stacked my stamped sentiment badge onto two layers of circles and adhered all these pieces together.
I added a panel of 'Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack' across the center of my card and this card was done ....... In no time flat!
So there you have it friends ...... A quick and easy card that looks great in any color combination!
 
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!

All of these fun test tube treats were made with product that is included in the September Paper Pumpkin Kit.
The test tubes are AMAZING!!!!!
And the tags are ADORABLE!!!!!
I created these for the wonderful employees at our local grocery store and Starbucks Coffee House.
I'll be needing to purchase a refill kit .......
So I can make sure I have plenty to pass out.
I am just thrilled with the way this project turned out and can't wait to hand out these adorable treats to some pretty special people on Halloween Day.

Freaky Friday - Spooky Mummy

Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Freaky Friday.  For the month of September........I am going to take a break from posting my normal Friends Friday posts and spot light some freaky Halloween cards I've been making.  Each of these cards will use some of the AMAZING PRODUCT that is featured in the new 2016 Holiday Catalog.  Now that you have the details for Freaky Friday.......Let's jump right in with my first Freaky Friday card share.........
How's this for a Spooky Fun Mummy card.
I used the new Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set to stamp my mummy ...... and the coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch makes it so quick and easy to get this little cutie done in no time flat.
I stamped my sentiment with the new 'Spooky Fun' stamp set and created a fun banner flag ...... that I attached to my mummy.
The brick DSP panel is from the 'Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper' and I wrapped some 'Halloween Night Baker's Twine' around the top of this panel and tied it up into a pretty bow.
And a final touch was adding a single red shiny heart to my mummy!
 So there you have it friends ...... A quick and easy Halloween card for you!
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a special Paper Pumpkin Saturday creation with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Tag Thursday - Snowman 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 this weeks Tag Thursday ....... Let's jump right in with my tag share for today.
I created these tags for my July customer orders.
I hosted a Christmas in July camp and I thought these tags would be the perfect way to say THANK YOU to all my fabulous customers.
The snowman comes together with many Stampin' UP! punches......
And I topped each tag off with some Baker's Twine and a set of silver jingle bells.
These were super fun to create ....... And even more fun to attach to each customer order as a little way of saying "THANK YOU" to each of them.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share another Freaky Friday card with you ....... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Wine Down Wednesday - Thoughtful Things

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........
This card looks very complicated to make........But Stampin' UP! has taken all the work out of it with the help of the 'Detailed Floral Thinlits'.  Let me share the steps with you.......
I began by stamping my sentiment from the 'Floral Phrases' stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I used Dapper Denim ink to stamp my sentiment.
Right below the sentiment I added some 3/8" Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon to bring some balance to my Whisper White panel.
The 'Detailed Floral Thinlits' die was die-cut from some Dapper Denim cardstock and I created a pocket with this panel and mounted it onto a single panel of Dapper Denim cardstock (4-1/4" x 5-1/2").
As you can see from the picture above ........ The Whisper White sentiment panel slides in and out of the die-cut 'Detailed Floral Thinlits' pocket.
And it's just that easy to create this gorgeous floral pocket panel.
I think this card would look fabulous in almost any color ....... Why don't you try making one in your favorite color combination.
 
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 by and let me share that project with you.  Keep Living Your Dream!
