Rockin' Horse

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2019-2020 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..........
 
My card share for today is straight from the new Stampin' UP! 'Experience Creativity' brochure.
 
I used the card that is on page 13 of this new brochure.........And took what Stampin' UP! shared and put my own spin on it.
 
I used the 'Hoot Hoot Hooray' set from that brochure and stamped my darling little teddy bear on a rockin' horse onto the front of a Whisper White Note Card.  I used my Posy, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Blends along with my Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Markers to color in both images.
 
All that was left to do was stamp my sentiment (from that same set) right below my rockin' horse image......
 
And this card was done in RECORD BREAKING TIME!!!

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!

You Are Amazing 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 June Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
 
This card used all the left over pieces from the June kit.
 
I started out by cutting up two of the cards in the kit to fit a four square panel on the front of my card.
Next, I stamped one of the sentiments from this kit onto one of the cropped out squares.
 
I then layered three of the Sand Dollars die-cut pieces onto a couple layering circles.......And used Stampin Dimensionals to pop those little cuties up.
All that was left to do was wrap some of the Linen Thread that came with this kit around the center of my layered piece.......And attach that to the front of my Whisper White base card.  I was done in NO TIME FLAT!!!!!

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!

You're Rawr Some

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........
 
How STINKIN' CUTE is this tag!!!!
 
I started out by adding two pieces of 'Dino Roar Designer Series Paper' to the top and bottom edge of my 2-1/2" x 4-1/4" Whisper White tag.
 
Next, I stamped my sweet little sentiment with Poppy Parade ink.....
 
And then used the 'Dino Dies' to cut out one of the ADORABLE dinosaurs from the  'Dino Roar Designer Series Paper'.
 
My finishing touch for this tag was adding some 'Poppy Parade Ribbon' to the top of my tag and tied it off with some 'Linen Thread'.
Just crazy about the way this tag turned out......
And can't wait to add it to a present for a special little boy!!!

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!

Laser Cut Congrats 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........
Check out this BEAUTIFUL card I created using the new 'Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards'
I started this card off by using one of the lacy laser cut cards from the 'Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tins'.  These GORGEOUS lacy laser-cut cards have all the pretty work done for you.
All I needed to do was use my 'Layering Circle Dies' to crop out a Pretty Peacock scallop circle and a Very Vanilla circle and add those to the front of my laser-cut card.
Next, I die-cut the flower from the 'Wild Rose Die' in Pretty Peacock and Flirty Flamingo.......And just layered those onto my pretty layering circles.

All that was left to do was add a couple Pear Pizzazz 'Leaf Punch' pieces.....
And this card was done in a JIFFY!!!

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!

Dual Gift Card Holder

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 cute little gift card holder was shared by the very talented Rachel Tessman at Stamp Your Art Out.  I of course........put my own spin on her project.
 
Rachel used product from the June 'A Little Smile' Paper Pumpkin kit to create a double gift card holder out of the mini envelopes that were included in that kit.
 
I created a belly band with Coastal Cabana card stock and the 'Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper'.
 
And once you remove the belly band.......The two envelopes (that were attached together by their flaps).......
 
Are the perfect location to tuck two little gift cards.
Here's how the two envelopes slip together.......
 
And I used the 'Free As A Bird' set to create my oval sentiment pieces.
Just couldn't be happier with the way this project turned out.

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!

To You 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 2019-2020 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 TOP......
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday upgraded card for today on the BOTTOM.....
 
I used the same 'Celebrate With Cake' stamp set for this card.......
 
But before I stamped my flowers ...... I added a layer of torn Granny Apple Green card stock for my row of flowers to sit on.
 
Next, I stamped my flowers with Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green ink.....
 
And punched out a Mango Melody 'Starburst Punch' piece for my beaming sunshine. 
 
The final touch for my card was adding some birds in flight.....
 
And my upgraded card was done in no time flat.
Two darling little note cards.......
That could be used for any occasion.

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!
