Lovely Day 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's this for a special little card.....
I used the 'Petal Passion Designer Series Paper' to create this card.  I added one panel to the bottom section of my card.....
And another panel to the top of my card.
I wrapped some 'Flirty Flamingo Baker's Twine' around the center and added one of the 'Petal Passion Embellishments' before I tied the Baker's Twine up into a pretty bow.
My sentiment was stamped with the 'Lovely Wishes' set and matted with two circle layers from the 'Layering Circle Framelits' dies.
Just doesn't get any easier than that.......
What do you think????
 
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!

Note Card Portfolio

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 both the 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog and 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' UP! Catalog.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.......
This FUN note card portfolio comes together in no time flat.
I started out with a 12"x12" piece of 'True Gentleman Designer Series Paper'.  With one of the 12" sides at the top of my 'Simply Score', I scored at 1-3/4", 5-3/4", 6-1/4" and 10-1/4".
I turned my DSP to the other 12" side and scored at 2-1/2" and 8-1/4".
I used the 'Watercolor Words' set to create my center sentiment panel.
And wrapped the 'Night of Navy 3/8" Corduroy Ribbon' around my portfolio to secure it closed.
This portfolio holds four notecards perfectly.
I used the 'True Gentleman Designer Series Paper' along with the 'Ready to Pop' set to create the cards that were tucked inside my portfolio.
Here is how the portfolio folds up.  All the side pieces tuck inside each panel and requires no adhesive to create.
How fun are these two notecards!
The 'Ready to Pop' sentiment was punched out and matted to a Chocolate Chip scallop from the 'Layering Circles Framelits'.
And I used the 'Tailored Tag Punch' to position each of my sentiment circles onto.
Some 'Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon' and 'Whisper White Baker's Twine' was added to the top of each DSP panel.
And here's the other card I created.
Just love how the 'True Gentleman Designer Series Paper' does most of the work on each of my cards.
I did use the 'Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes' and my Night of Navy Blends to create two perfect little epoxy circles for each sentiment pieces.
Here are all four cards that tuck inside this portfolio.
So there you have it friends......
Have to admit that this is the perfect little gift
to give to someone special in your life.
 
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!

I'm Lucky Upgrade 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 an additional product from the 2018-2019 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spot Light Sunday card from yesterday on the LEFT.....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday card for today on the RIGHT.....
For today's card ....... I began by changing the orientation of my card.
Next I added an extra layer of cardstock to the DSP panels.
I also added one of the new 'Pearl Doiles' to the front of my card.......
And then stamped my sentiment from the 'Love What You Do' set with Mossy Meadow ink onto a 2-1/4" Whisper White circle.
So there you have it friends.......
I'm loving both versions of this card.....
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!

I'm Lucky Card

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the new upcoming 2018-2019 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  This card uses several products from that new catalog ....... And I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today..........
How HAPPY & FUN is this card!
I started this card off with a panel of the 'Share What You Love Designer Series Paper' and then added a smaller panel across the center of that DSP.  I topped the smaller panel off with some 'Whisper White 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon'.  All I needed to do to pretty it up.......was tie it up into a pretty knot.
My sentiment was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink and I used the 'Love What You Do' set.
I have to admit that the DSP did most of the work for this card ....... And I'm just crazy about the way this card turned out!

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!

3-Thanks Card

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 April Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
How's this for an alternate Paper Pumpkin project.  This card uses only product that was included in the April Paper Pumpkin kit.
I started out by creating this pretty DSP panel for the front of my card.....
And then I stamped the "Thanks" (that was included in this kit) onto three of the little circles (also included in the kit).
I adhered the three circles down on the DSP panel with Stampin' Dimensionals (also included in the kit) and then wrapped some twine around the top of each stamped circle.
Just a HAPPY & FUN kind of card that came together in a SNAP with the April Paper Pumpkin kit.
 
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!
