Triple Daisy Card

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And I would like to share with you the alternate project I created using the February Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
Doesn't this card just scream HAPPY SPRING to you???
I used the "thank you" lettering that came with this kit and adhered those to a Bermuda Bay panel that was die-cut using the 'Lots of Labels Framelits Dies'.
The pretty daisies were from the kit ...... And I just added some 'Fine Tip Glue Pen' into the center of each daisy to bring out a little glossy shine to each daisy.
I used the same 'Lots of Labels Framelits' and die-cut a Crush Curry label and adhered the Bermuda Bay label directly to it.
My final touch was wrapping some 'Crushed Curry Solid Baker's Twine' around the top of my card and tied it up into a pretty bow in the center.
This card reminds me.........
Spring is not far away!!!!!
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!

Panda For 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 TAG.  Now that you have the details for this weeks Tag Thursday creation ........ Let's jump right in with my tag share for today.......
I just can't seem to get enough of that darling Sale-a-Bration 'Party Panda' set.  Today's tag just makes me smile big every single time I look at it.
I started this tag out by using the 'Vertical Greetings' and stamped my "For You" sentiment on the far left hand side of my Whisper White base tag. 
Next I took that ADORABLE and OH SO CUTE panda from the 'Party Panda' set and stamped him onto the center of my tag.
Next I stamped the balloon from the 'Birthday Delivery' set onto pieces of Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight cardstock.  The 'Birthday Friends Framelits Dies' made it a snap to crop out all three balloons.  I attached a piece of 'Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine' to each balloon and then adhered each one down to my tag with a Stampin' Dimensionals.
I topped off my tag with a small piece of 'Whisper White 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon' and then finished if off with a pretty Basic Black Baker's Twine bow.
Makes for a great birthday tag ........
But I'm attaching it to a small little gift for a 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!

Easter Daffodil 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........
How beautiful is this card?????
Bonus surprise is it has two fun techniques....
The first technique is a fun style fold that I created to this pretty Easter card.  The card is the same size as the Stampin' UP! notecards.  What I did was start with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 3-1/2" x 10" and I scored that piece at 3-1/4" and also at 5".   I adhered down the 3-1/4" scored section and created a fun little flap style notecard that was perfect to spot-light the 'You're Inspiring' daffodil stamp.
Here is that image stamped onto a Whisper White panel and then I quickly colored in each of the stamped daffodil images with my Stampin' Write Markers.  Once I had my image completed colored ...... I mounted that onto a Daffodil Delight panel.
The second technique was using some household bubble wrap on a 3-1/4" x 5" Whisper White panel.  I attached the bubble wrap to my largest clear block and then inked up the bubble wrap with Daffodil Delight ink and stamped it directly onto the Whisper White panel.  The results of using this bubble wrap created a fun inked image that was perfect for this card.  Before I adhered that stamped bubble wrap panel to the front of my card ....... I wrapped some 'Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon' to the top and tied it off with a pretty knot.
And the final step to completing this card was adding a "Happy Easter" sentiment right below my panel of stamped daffodils.
Just love how pretty this card turned out ....... And will be sending several off this next week to family and friends for Easter.

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!

March Early BIrd Camp 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 Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.......
Check out the fun little Early Bird Gift I'm giving away at my March Stamp Camp this week.
I plan to give these away to one lucky guest who arrives at each of my March Stamp Camp either early or on time.  Each guest will receive a door prize ticket and when we are ready to start Stamp Camp.............I draw one lucky winner and that guest will go home with one of these Panda Bear card holders.
Each holder has three darling little birthday cards created with not only the FREE 'Party Panda' stamp set ....... but also uses the FREE 'Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes' from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.
Here are the three cards that are tucked inside the holder.
A closer looks show that each card starts out with one of the cards from the 'Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes'......
And spot-lights the 'Party Panda' stamp set......
And features three colorful circles from the 'Layering Circle Framelits'.......
To package up the three cards ...... I cut down one of the 'Acetate Card Boxes' and then used one of the cards from the 'Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes' to line the inside of the acetate box.
All that was left to do was decorate the front with a layered 'Party Panda' and tuck my three cards & envelopes inside.
I'm just crazy about the way this little gift turned out ........ And I know my Stamp Camp guests will be keeping their fingers crossed that they are one of the lucky winners of one of these on Wednesday. 
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!

Upgraded Party Panda 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 (found in the 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Sunday Party Panda card on the LEFT.....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday Party Panda card on the RIGHT.... 
For my upgraded Mix-It-UP! Monday version ....... I pulled out all the stop and really kicked this Party Panda up a whole new level.
I stamped my 'Party Panda' FREE Sale-a-Bration image onto the same Whisper White panel as I did yesterday.......but for today I added an extra layer of color to that panel.
For my 'Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper'.......I created a fun little banner flag and positioned that banner right down the center of my card.  All I needed to do to finish off that banner flag was add my Party Panda panel directly onto the center of that banner flag.
For my Soft Sky base card ....... I ran the front panel of that through my Big Shot using the 'Oh My Stars' Embossing Folder'.
The finishing touch was adding some 'Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine' around the spin of my card and hanging some (now retired) Bermuda Bay Sequins to that Baker's Twine.
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!

This month our theme is Last Call for Sale-a-Bration.  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.

Check out what just happens to be my FAVORITE Sale-a-Bration item.

The FREE Sale-a-Bration 'Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper' was the perfect addition to add across the center of my card......
And the finishing touch was adding some 'Pearl Basic Jewels' that were colored with my 'Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends' around the front of my card.
So there you have it friends.........
