Bottles & Bubbles Shaker Card Teaser!

Okay yes, I am teasing you with brand new upcoming Stampin' Up! products today. Some from the Occasions 2018 Catalog and some from the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Catalog. And...I am not sorry for teasing you....ha! Take a peek at my beautiful shaker card:


 

When I spied the little bottle cap images on the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Paper, I knew immediately that I wanted to create a Shaker Card. This brand new designer paper is part of our Sale-A-Bration celebration which you will be able to earn for FREE starting January 3rd!

Want to know what else is neat about this designer paper? It coordinates with two new products from the Occasions 2018 Catalog. The stamp set called Bubble Over, which is where the sentiment comes from and the coordinating Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies:




Aren't these bottle caps a hoot? I also added in some of our Iridescent Sequins into the mix too!


I love the two printed designer paper bottles that I cut out with the dies. Isn't the little heart cute on the label?  I have a blast creating this card for you today and I hope you are anxious to view the new products. Catalogs should be reaching you soon if you are a customer of mine!

  • Stamps: Bubble Over
  • Inks: Island Indigo
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Island Indigo
  • DSP: Bubbles & Fizz
  • Tools: Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies, Window Sheets, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Foam Adhesive Stips

Waterfall Card Photo Album!

I made a very special card for my Mom for Christmas this year. As most of you know, my Dad passed away on February 21st and this will be our first Christmas without him. Maybe that's why I'm not in the Christmas spirit this year. They say the first year of holidays without a loved one is the hardest. I still feel comfort in knowing that my Dad is no longer suffering from COPD and the ill effects it had on him.

I found the instructions for this card on YouTube and will list the link at the end of my post. This is called a Waterfall Card Photo Album. I did not use photographs in my card. Instead, I added coordinating pages. Let's start with the cover of my card:



The Santa's Sleigh stamp set and Santa's Sleigh Thinlits Dies made the most elegant cover and pages for my waterfall card. I just love the intricut die-cuts and coordinating stamped images:



Once you open the card, you'll find multiple pages that reveal themselves as you pull on the large tab at the bottom of the card. Here's the first page:



The second page....


The third page and yes the pages get smaller as you pull:


And finally, the last page where I just added a sentiment so I can write a message to my Mom:


A close-up of the pull-tab:


And close-up photo's of each page:





If you would like to try your hand at creating a card just like this one (or use for photo's), you can visit this YouTube video where I found it:

Merry Monday Challenge #269!


It's my turn to be the hostess of our Merry Monday Challenge this week and I'm giving you a Color Choice Challenge. You can choose colors as close to the ones in the graphic and you get to pick at least three colors from the six. I ended up using a light blue, a dark blue, a light green and a dark green for my card today:



I like how the dark blue stamped and die-cut images pop against the other colors. I had tried to use turquise cardstock for the lighter blue but it just didn't look right and I had to go lighter. Here's a close-up:




I can't wait to see what you create for my challenge this week. I know the holidays are starting to keep everyone busy but perhaps you'll take time to play our challenge. Have a good week!

Altered List Pad & New YouTube Video!

Happy Sunday and welcome to a new 3D project today! I purchased a bunch of List Pad's at WalMart and alterned them with some pretty designer paper, cardstock, ribbon, rhinestones and a stamped layer:



I chose my colors to coordinate as close to the list pad as I could:


And I did a little bit of watercoloring too! Thanks Mary Brown for this idea!


These make great last-minute Christmas gifts or if you papercraft for craft fairs, these would be quick to whip up multiples of. See how simple?



Want to learn how to make one, or two, or more? Here's my new video:

Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!


Today we are all using "non traditional colors" for our Christmas cards. Welcome to our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. The Feeling Of Christmas stamp set was perfect to use for my project today:



I used Fresh Fig and Crushed Curry for my non-traditional colors and I think those colors work well for Christmas. I actually stamped my wreath image twice. Once on the Whisper White Cardstock layer and a 2nd time on the Birthday Memories Designer Paper so that I could hand-cut the bow with my Paper Snips and glue it over the first image:


The addition of the sentiment on a small piece of cardstock cut with the Layering Squares Dies finished off my card perfectly! Here are my layers:
  1. Card Base: Fresh Fig Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  2. Layer #2: Birthday Memories Designer Paper 5" x 3-3/4". Stamp the small branch image using Fresh Fig Ink on the right. Glue to card base.
  3. Layer #3:Whisper White Cardstock 3-3/4" x 3-1/2". Stamp the wreath image using Fresh Fig Ink. Stamp the 2nd image using Crushed Curry Ink. Glue to card front about 1/2" from the left using Stampin' Dimensional.s
  4. Bow: Stamp the wreath image on the Birthday Memories Designer Paper and hand-cut the bow. Glue over the bow on Layer 3.
  5. Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White Cardstock using Fresh Fig Ink. Cut with the Layering Squares Dies. Glue to the wreath using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Feeling Of Christmas
  • Inks: Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Fresh Fig
  • Tools: Stampin' Dimensionals, Layering Squares Dies, Paper Snips
  • Designer Paper: Birthday Memories

Free Kit Of The Month using Sale-A Bration Epic Celebrations!

I was an avid athlete in my junior high, high school and college years. I played basketball, softball and volleyball so when I spied those cute sneakers in the Epic Celebrations stamp set....oh my goodness I had to have them! Back in the day, Converse sneakers were very popular and this sneaker image is a perfect replication of those sneakers....squeal!



The Epic Celebrations stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration 2018 Catalog product and you can earn it for FREE....seriously! I can't show you all of the images yet as the catalog debuts on January 3, 2018. The good news though, is that this is my FREE card kit for the month of December. If you placed an order during the first full week of December so far, your kits and your 20% discount check were mailed to you yesterday!

Here are some more photo's of this cute card. I also used a new punch called the Tailored Tag Punch and some new designer paper called True Gentleman:



Notice the colored sneakers? And I'm still going to call these Converse sneakers by the way. I colored with the light Pool Party Stampin' Blends and then used a Blender Pen and Whisper White Ink to add the white areas of my Converse sneakers:



Want to see how I made this card? I have all the steps in my new YouTube video:

Don't forget that I'm offering 20% off during the month of December!
