Mix-It-UP! Monday Celebrate 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 (found in the 2017 Occasions Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is yesterday's Spot Light Sunday card on the LEFT....
And today's Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the RIGHT......
For today's upgrade ...... I went with a more BOLD & SASSY look.
I mounted my three 'Cupcake & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack' panels onto a panel of Early Espresso cardstock.  And that gave the DSP a real POP!
I also mounted my Celebrate sentiment from the 'Happy Celebrations' stamp set onto another panel of Early Espresso cardstock.
For a tiny bit of FUN ....... I not only added a 'Mini Paper Clip' to the top of my sentiment panel ..... But also sprinkled some of the sequins in the 'Cupcake & Carousels Embellishment Kit' to the front of my card.
Two AMAZING cards that will help fill all your card giving needs.
 
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 - Celebrate

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Before I share with you my Spot Light Sunday card for this week.........I have to do a PROUD GRANDMA MOMENT.  My grandson Jared is a Senior at Deforest High School in Deforest, Wisconsin.  He took his girlfriend (who attends Waunakee High School) to her Junior Prom last night.  Here are some pictures that they had taken at Olbrich Gardens before the event.....
I'm just in LOVE LOVE LOVE with this picture. 
 
So moving into my share for today..........It's Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog..  This card uses several new products from that catalog .......So let me jump right in with my card share for today.........
I'm totally in love with the softness and prettiness of this card.
I started out by cutting three panels of the 'Cupcake & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack' and adding those panels to the front of my Very Vanilla base card.
Right below the three panels of DSP ..... I added some of the Calypso Coral 1/4" Ombre Ribbon that is included in the 'Cupcakes & Carousels Embellisment Kit'.......
And stamped my sentiment from the 'Happy Celebrations' set with Early Espresso Ink.
Such a pretty card that will fit just about any occasion you want to celebrate!

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 Saturday - 3 Balloons

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And do I have a SERIOUSLY FUN CARD to share with you!  This is one of my favorite cards made with the February Paper Pumpkin kit.  I added some extra cardstock and a stamped image to create this card ........ And I'm just thrilled with the way it turned out.  Let me share that card with you now.
This card just SCREAMS........
Come Celebrate With Me!
I used the stamp set that was included in the February Paper Pumpkin kit along with Calypso Coral ink to stamp my sentiment.
My DSP panel was created from a small piece of the cardstock that was included in the February kit.
And my three balloons were stamped with the 'Balloon Adventures' set ...... using Pool Party, Island Indigo and Calypso Coral cardstock.
The 'Balloon Bouquet' punch made it easy to crop out each of the balloons....
And a small piece of Calypso Coral Thick Baker's Twine was added around the front of my card ....... and I tied it up into a pretty bow.
Just a darling card that will be going out to someone special in September.
 
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!

Tag Thursday 3-Pot 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 GIFT TAG.  Now that you have the details for this weeks Tag Thursday ....... Let's jump right in with my tag share for today.
For today's tag ...... I used the 'Bookcase Builder' stamp set.
I started this tag off by stamping my 'thank you' sentiment with Emerald Envy ink and positioning it at the bottom of my 2" tag.
Next I used the stamps included in this set to stamp three floating ledges with one pot on each ledge.
I used my Tip Top Taupe Stampin' Write Marker to outline the edges of my ledge ..... and that helped the image just pop on the Whisper White cardstock.
My tag was topped off with a small piece of 1/8" Emeral Envy Taffeta Ribbon......
And a Real Red colored heart was added to each pot ......... And I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to cover each of the hearts and that gave each flower pot a pretty little shine.
A quick and easy tag that looked amazing when I attached it to a small little fern plant 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!

Wine Down Wednesday Swirl 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!!!!
I started out by stamping the largest swirl from the 'Falling Flowers' set using Bermuda Bay ink ...... and then quickly dipped it into clear embossing powder.  All I needed to do was heat set the embossing powder and that gave me a bright shiny swirled image.
My sentiment was stamped with the 'Circle of Spring' set......And I used Bermuda Bay ink to stamp my sentiment.  Next, I stamped and die-cut two sets of flowers from the 'Falling Flowers' stamp set and coordinating 'May Flowers Framelits Dies'.  I used Bermuda Bay and Pool Party for my two flower colors.
Each flower was stacked and then adhered to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
And one final touch was adding some 3/8" Pool Party Stitched Satin Ribbon and stringing some Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim from the knot.
I'm just crazy in love with the way this card turned out......And can't wait to try other color combinations. 
 
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!

That had some yummy Mint Chocolate inside.
