Hip Hip Hooray Daisy 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.......
\
These two tags came together with the new 'Daisy Delight' stamp set and 'Daisy Punch'.  Both will be offered in the 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog ......... That will be released June 1st.
I started this tag off by adding a small piece of the new 'Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper' across the bottom of my tag.  Next, I stamped the Hip Hip Hooray sentiment from the 'Happy Birthday Gorgeous' set (also available June 1st) onto a small panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock.
How pretty are these two daisies that are made from Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy cardstock.
I finished off both daisies with a 'Silver Faceted Gem' that also will be available on June 1st.
And both of my tags were topped off with some 'Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon (also available June 1st).
Such a PRETTY & HAPPY tag.....
That will without a doubt make someone smile big when they receive it.
 
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!

Stencil Card With Die-Cut Flower

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 PRETTY notecard was made with the GORGEOUS 'Stylish Stems Framelits Dies' and some Peekaboo Peach ink.
All I did was die-cut out the large flower in this framelits set onto a large piece of Whisper White cardstock and used that die-cut piece as a stencil.

The die-cut stencil was placed over a Whisper White notecard top panel and then with one of my Sponge Daubers ......... I simply started daubing in my Peekaboo Peach ink onto the stencil.  It was like magic, when I lifted the stencil off my panel and saw the beautiful flower that was left behind.
This FUN & FLIRTY banner flag was created using some Subtles Designer Series Paper along with some Silver Glimmer Paper.  A small piece of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon and Silver Sequin Trim was added to the top of that banner flag and all it took was one single staple to pull it all together.
My sentiment was stamped from the 'Bunch of Blossoms' set with Peekaboo Peach ink.....
And the final touch was adding a few Silver Sequin Trims around the front of my card.  I ended up making two of this card and packaged it up into a pretty portfolio that I will share with you soon.
 
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!

Birthday Tag Crate

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 was made for my May Stamp Camp and was given out as my Early Bird Door Prize.  It was SUPER FUN to create and the product is featured in the NEW 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.......
I created two of these fun little birthday tag crates for my morning and afternoon May Stamp Camp.  Each month, I offer an Early Bird door prize for one lucky guest who arrives early/on time for my camp. 
This little crate was created using the new 'Wood Crate Framelits' and some of the new In-Color Powder Pink cardstock.
I used the Powder Pink ink along with the 'Hardwood' stamp set to create some fun texture on my 'Wood Crate Framelits' pieces. 
And here are the 10 festive birthday tags that were tucked inside my crate.
I created two of each tag (2-3/4" x 2-1/2") ....... and used all five new 2017-2019 In-Color inks for my tags.
I used the new 'Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper' and cut a 3/4" x 2-1/2" piece to fit perfectly at the bottom of each tag.
The happy balloon was stamped from the 'Happy Birthday Gorgeous' set in each of the new In-Colors.  I topped each tag off with the matching 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon. 
And the final touch was wrapping some of the yummy 1/2" Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon around my crate and finishing it off with a pretty bow. 
 
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

Mix-It-UP! Monday Eastern Palace 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 an additional product (found in the 2016-2017 Annual Stampin' UP! Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spot Light Sunday card on the TOP.....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the BOTTOM.....
For today's card I repeated the 'Eastern Palace Suite'......
And kept the medallion the same.....
But added to the 'Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper' at the top of my card, some 'Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon'.  I also hung some 'Gold Sequin Trim' from that ribbon for a little SOMETHING SOMETHING!
For an added detail for my upgraded card ...... I added one of the 'Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers' (scallop sticker) to the bottom edge of the 'Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper' panel I had at the top of my card.
I finished of this card with a sprinkling of Gold Sequin Trim.....
And this card was CALLED DONE!
So tell me friends......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!

Spot Light Sunday - Eastern Palace Thanks

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the upcoming NEW 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  This card uses several new products from that catalog, that I was able to pre-order early ....... just for being a Stampin' UP! Demonstrator.  Let me jump right in with my card share for today.........
How BOLD and BEAUTIFUL is this card!
It starts out by using a panel of the new 'Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper' across the top portion of my card.  I'm totally in LOVE with all the gold that is in this specialty paper.
Next, I die-cut a medallion image from the OVER THE TOP 'Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies'.  I have to say that this is a die set that includes 14 different dies and the possibilities of what you can create with these 14 dies is ENDLESS!
Into the center of the Dapper Denim medallion, I added one of the 'Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers'.   Talk about a WOW FACTOR!  All I needed to do to finish off that medallion was to stamp my thank you sentiment and I used some Gold Embossing Powder to put it OVER THE TOP!
One final touch for this card was to add some Gold Sequin Trim....
And this card was finished.
So what do you think of this new Eastern Palace Suite?
It will be available for purchase on June 1st.

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 Saturdy in the Pink

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And do I have a SUPER FUN CARD to share with you!  This card was created with the April 'Sara Thing' kit.  I was able to create this fun birthday card with the supplies that came with the kit ........ And only added some additional cardstock and ribbon.  I'm just loving the way it turned out ........ Let me share that card with you now.
I would be TICKLED PINK to receive this card for my birthday!
I created a super size tag with the black and white card panel that was included in this kit ......
And then cut down a small panel of the watercolor resist paper that was included in the kit.  I used the Melon Mambo watercolor pencil that came with this kit and created a pretty diamond watercolor panel for the front of my card.
I finished this card off with some Melon Mambo Ribbon and Whisper White Baker's Twine and this card was GOOD TO GO!
 
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 Sparkle Butterfly

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 ........ Let's jump right in with my tag share for today..........
I have to admit ........ This just has to be one of my FAVORITE tags ever!
It starts out with FABULOUS 'Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper'.  Oh my word ....... Am I ever sad that this DSP is retiring.......
I die-cut the small butterfly from the 'Bold Butterfly Framelits' set and added a layer of clear packing tape to the back (sticky side facing the butterfly).
All I needed to do was sprinkle some 'Dazzling Diamonds' over the die-cut butterfly and the glitter stuck to the packing tape that was behind the butterfly.  RESULTS ....... INSTANT WOW FACTOR X2!!!!
I stamped a banner flag for the top of my tag from the 'Watercolor Wings' set.  And added two Rhinestones to both ends of my banner flag.
The final touch for this tag was adding some Melon Mambo Thick Baker's Twine to the top of my tag ....... And this tag was complete.
I just adore how this tag turned out and can't wait to attach it to a gift for a dear sweet friend.
