Happy Birthday

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 FABULOUS is this birthday card!!!!!
 
I used two 1/2" panels of the 'How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper' to the top and bottom section of this card.
 
I used the 'Stamparatus' to position two jars from the 'Sweetest Thing' set onto a Pool Party card stock panel.  I used VersaMark ink and then sprinkled it with 'White Embossing Powder' before heat setting those two images.
 
My sentiment (also from the 'Sweetest Thing' set) was stamped in the center of the larger jar with Black ink.  And I punched out several small card stock circles and added those to the inside of both embossed jars to resemble gumballs.  
I used the 'How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper' along with the 'Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies' to crop out one gumball jar image and positioned that between the two embossed jars.  And the final touch was wrapping some 'Whisper White Baker's Twine' around the bottom of this yummy birthday card.

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!

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is 'CASE IT TUESDAY'.  That means today I have a fun little 3-D project that I found on the internet ....... And I created a CASE of that project to share with you today.  This project was SUPER FUN to create and want to jump right in and share that project with you now.
 
This DARLING project was shared by the UBER TALENTED Rachel Tessman ...... And I must admit, Rachel NAILED THIS PROJECT!!!!  You can watch her video from January 16th here: (https://youtu.be/vh0op8fjXKc).
 
I thought this project would be the PERFECT Early Bird Gift for my three February Stamp Camps.  Needless to say ....... The three gals who won the Early Bird drawings......LOVED their gift.
 
Check out how Rachel designed the box so you could tuck a couple 'Narrow Note Cards' inside.
 
Here are the two 'Narrow Note Cards' I designed to tuck inside my box.
I used the pieces from the Sale-a-Bration Precious Parcel Kit.....
To create both note cards.
 
And the note cards and coordinating envelopes tuck perfectly inside the slot designed at the top of this mailbox.
 
So that's it my friends........
Such a FUN & CREATIVE little 3-D project.

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!

Birthday Wishes 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 added a couple additional products to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
 
Here's my Spot Light Sunday card from yesterday on the TOP.....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday upgraded card for today on the BOTTOM..... 
 
 How awesome is this upgraded card.......
 
I started out by changing up the sentiment piece of this card and stamping it directly onto my Coastal Cabana panel. 
 
Next, I created a Whisper White "Rectangle Stitched Framelits' frame to be positioned around that stamped sentiment.
 
One of the biggest upgrades I made ....... Was embossing the Coastal Cabana sentiment panel.  I positioned that Coastal Cabana panel in my 'Simply Score Board' and scored it at 1/8", 1/8" and 1/4".  I followed that pattern across the entire Coastal Cabana panel.  I took care in not running my embossing through the stamped sentiment piece.
 
All that was left to do was wrap my 'Coastal Cabana & Granny Apple Green Reversible Ribbon' across the top of my embossed/stamped sentiment panel.  
So there you have it my friends.......
Must admit......
I'm loving both versions of this 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!

Birthday Wishes

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from both the 2019 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog and the new 2019 Sale-a-Bration Catalog.   This card uses several products from both of those catalogs .......... And I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today..........
 
 This is one of those crisp and clean style cards that I enjoy creating.
 
I started out with the new 'More Than Words' set.  I used Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green ink to stamp that sentiment.
 
I layered my sentiment onto several layers of the 'Rectangle Stitched Framelits'.....
 
And before adhering that sentiment panel to my Whisper White base card ....... I wrapped some 'Reversible Coastal Cabana & Granny Apple Green Ribbon' around the left hand edge of that sentiment panel.
And that's all it took my friends to bring this crisp looking card together.

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!

Incredible Thing

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 February Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
 
 How special is this alternate Paper Pumpkin card creation!
 
I used the stamp set that came with the February kit ....... And stamped the "You" onto a 1-1/2" Whisper White circle and then matted it with a Fresh Fig 1-3/4" circle.  I then stamped the remainder of my sentiment onto one of the Whisper White banner flags that came with this kit ....... And adhered that behind the layered circle punches.
 
I wrapped some 'Whisper White Baker's Twine around the cactus image panel and adhered that to the front of my card.
 
So the extra supplies I needed to complete this alternate card were minimal ...... but the overall card packs a maximum statement.

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!

Best Ever 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 my Tag Thursday creation for this week ........ Let's jump right in with my tag share for today........
 
What a PRETTY & ELEGANT looking tag I created for today.
 
I stamped the two emblems to the top and bottom portion of this tag with the 'All Adorned' set.  I used Crumb Cake ink and then sprinkling it with 'Clear Embossing Powder' before heat setting that portion of my tag. 
 
My sentiment was stamped with the same set, and I used VersaMark ink and sprinkled it with 'Black Embossing Powder' before heat setting it.
 
 I added a few 'Metallic Sequins' around the front of my tag......
 
And finished my tag off with some '5/8" Burlap Ribbon' and tied it up with 'Black Baker's Twine'.
 
And that's it my friends.......
Such a PRETTY & ELEGANT looking tag for today.

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!
