LOVE YOU Paper Pumpkin Tag

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And do I have a SERIOUSLY FUN TAG to share with you!  This just has to be one of my favorite alternate projects I prepared with the May Paper Pumpkin kit.  I added some extra cardstock to create this tag ........ And I'm just thrilled with the way it turned out.  Let me share that tag with you now.
How fun is this sassy little 'LOVE YOU' tag!
I began by stamping my sentiment onto one of the Whisper White banner flags that came with this kit.
My donut was created with two layers of cardstock and then I added some sprinkles to the top of my chocolate donut.
I popped my donut up with Stampin' Dimensionals and then added a single red heart to the center of my donut hole.
Some new yummy Powder Pink ribbon was added to the top of my tag......And I finished it off with a pretty Whisper White Baker's Twine bow.
Just crazy about the way this tag turned out ........... And will be surprising Jack with it this morning when he wakes up.  (He's been doing an AMAZING JOB taking care of me the last three weeks while I recover from my knee replacement surgery.)
 
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!

Hello There 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.......
I'm just CRAZY about how this tag turned out.
I started out by adhering a panel of 'Pick a Pattern' DSP to my 2" x 4-1/4" Whisper White tag.
Next I grabbed my 1-1/2, 1-3/4" and 2' circle punches and created 3-cirlces with some Old Olive, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White cardstock.
My sentiment was then stamped onto the 1-1/2" Whisper White circle using Crushed Curry ink and the 'Pieces and Patterns' stamp set.
And the final touches were adding the Mini Chevron Ribbon and three Glitter Enamel Dots to the front of my tag.
A HAPPY and FUN kind of tag .......
That will look perfect attached to any gift.....

Anniversary 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........
My card today is a fun fold type of card......
This card is a 'Bridge Fold' card.......And it fits into a standard A2 envelope.  The DSP panels measure (Qty 2) 1" x 4" and those two panels are adhered to the left and right side scored panels.
Here is a close-up of how you position your adhesive on the backside of the bridge fold piece.
I used the 'Best Bird' stamp set and 'Birds & Blooms Thinlits' to create the bridge fold for my card.  That Watermelon Wonder cardstock piece measures 1"x 5-1/2" and the stamped sentiment goes onto a  3/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Blushing Bride.
The base card is a Watermelon Wonder piece of cardstock that measures 4-14" x 8".  The scoring for this piece is done at 1-1/4", 2-1/2", 5-1/2" and 6-3/4".
And to provide some additional writing space........Another Blushing Bride panel is added to the backside of this card.
Simply the perfect Anniversary card......but also makes a darling Birthday card and add balloons instead of bird.  Honestly.....the sky is the limit with this 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!

Box of Note Cards

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 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.......
I don't know anyone who wouldn't LOVE to receive this precious box of notecards from me.
This box of notecards makes the perfect Birthday, Housewarming or Just Because gift to give to someone special.
The box is designed so the top can be lifted off and the five notecards inside can pop right out.
I used the new 2017-2019 In Color collection to create these cards.
I used both the 'Colorful Seasons' Stamp set and the 'Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies' to create each of these cards.
Each card featured one of the new 2017-2019 In-Colors for the cardstock and ink........
And each card spot-lighted the SUPER FUN Adirondack Chair die that is featured in the 'Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies'.
The box holds 5-Vanilla Note cards and envelopes.
The box base measures 6" x 10-1/2".  On the short side, I scored at 1" and 5" and I cut at 6".....
And on the long side, I scored at 4-3/4' and 5-3/4" and cut at 10-1/2"
For the lid I started with a 2-1/2" x 10-5/8" piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock ...... And on the long side I scored at 3/8", 4-7/16", 5-1/2" an 9-9/16" and cut at 10-5/8".  On the short side I scored at 1-1/16"
I added some (now retired) Flirty Flamingo ribbon and dangled some Gold Sequin Trim from the pretty bow I created.
 
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

You Make Me Smile 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 -2018 Stampin' UP! Annual 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 Mix-It-UP! Monday card ........ It's all about the packaging on how I planned to give this card out.
My plan was to use one of the new 'Striped Treat Bags' for the packaging of my card ........ But my Stampin' UP! order had not arrived.  So I grabbed one of the now retired Glassine Bags and began creating with that.  The medallion I created for my bag turned out SUPER AWESOME!
I started out by using one of the 'Delicate White Doilies' for the base of my medallion ......... and then added several layers from the 'Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies'.  Some (now retired) Dapper Denim Ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim just put my medallion over the top.
I used the same 'Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper' for the bottom portion of my card......
And to the top off my Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide cardstock panel I added some 1/8" Gold Ribbon.  My final step to upgrading this cardstock panel was to add one of the new Gold Mini Tassels and tied it up into a pretty bow.
I also wanted to upgraded my sentiment ........ So I grabbed my VersaMark and Gold Embossing Powder and created a BRIGHT & SHINY sentiment for this card.
So there you have it friends.........
Two great cards ........
With a fun and easy packaging idea to go along with it!!!!

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!

You Make Me Smile

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2017-2018 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 quick & easy card comes together with the help of the new 'Eastern Beauty' stamp set and coordinating Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper. 
The sentiment from this set just POPS off the page with the help of the new Berry Burst In-Color ink.
The bottom portion of this card, I added a panel of 'Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper......
And topped it off with a layer of Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide cardstock.  The final touch for my card was adding one of the new 2017-2018 In Color Bitty Bows (in Berry Burst) to the top of my cardstock panel.
A FANTASTIC card and is the perfect way to let someone know just how SPECIAL they are to you!

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!
