Amazing Lil' Gift Set!!!

DSCN4738

WHOO HOO!!! I've been working hard to get this new February project ready for you...and I WON!!! This adorable book box is the perfect way to present a gift of beautiful handmade cards to just about anyone!  This one was specifically made with the Zoo Babies and Another Thank You stamp sets. It's perfect for young mothers...and it was designed as a gift idea to give to someone when they have a baby. One of the nicest things you can do is provide some cutie patootie baby themed cards for a new mother to send out for the wonderful gifts she receives for her new baby! Or any mother to send out for gifts received for her little munchkins.

Cute story...

My daughter Hailey came wandering into my stampin' studio a few months ago looking for something to do. She said "mom, I want to stamp...what should I make?" WELL - I was all over that! I told her I needed gift sets to be able to share with all my fabulous customers. So I pointed her in the direction of the internet to surf around for some ideas for a container...told her a few rules I have for my gift sets and she buckled down to come up with these amazing cards and stinkin' cute box! WAY TO GO HAILEY!

You can get the file for free with an order or you can

purchase the PDF file for $3.95 here:

Another 3-Tiered Slider Card - ADORBS!!!

DSCN9813

Here's the gorgeous card I featured at the start of my video yesterday!!! You can see that video here and learn how to make a Three-Tiered Slider card:

See Video HERE

I used the Build A Birthday & Amazing Birthday stamp sets and the Sweet Li'l Things Designer Series Paper to stamp up this card. The gift bag is one I had left over from last year - we have these little Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags on page 151 of the big catalog and you can decorate them any way you want! The little gift bag uses the Amazing Birthday stamp set along with the Hello You Thinlits and the Banners Framelits.

I'm soooo FLOWERY this week!

DSCN8892

 I love flowers.  They bring me joy.  They make me be nuturing...because I have to water all my flowers out by the pool every morning and on really hot sunny days - I have to water them at night too.  I just love the pop of color they add to my day.  This Dahlia is one of my favorite new background stamps.  It's shown in the big catalog on page 129.  I think the butterfly punches are a great accent for a super easy CLEAN AND CRISP looking card - don't you?

This card is made with the new In Color - Delightful Dijon.  It's a very popular color right now - trendy in home decor and clothing...if you didn't like it when it first started appearing everywhere (like me) - it starts to grow on you (just like it did for me) and I need to go shopping because I want a shirt to match - LOL!

Another Faux Tile Card!!!

DSCN8796

OOOO lalal!  Here's another GOR-JEEEE-OUS card using the Faux Tile technique that I featured yesterday on my FRIDAY FEATURE post!!!  Make sure you check out the video and learn how fun and easy this technique is.

This beauty features the Awesomely Artistic stamp set in a collage setting - one of my FAV's from the big catalog.  I also used the new GOLD METALLIC THREAD - you can see it wound up under the FRIEND greeting.  

Dimensions:

Mint Macaron - card base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2

Early Espresso - 3-1/4 x 5

Very Vanilla - 3-3/8 x 4-7/8 and scraps

Directions:

  • Watch the video link below to make your Faux Tile layer
  • Sponge the outside edges of the Faux Tile layer with Crumb Cake ink
  • Stamp the images in Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron ink
  • Stamp two dragon flies on scraps of Very Vanilla card stock and cut out the wings
  • Add a dot of liquid glue in the center of your wings where they attach to the body of the dragon fly - apply to card front
  • Add pearls to dragonflies
  • Stamp and die cut the FRIEND greeting with Early Espresso and Mint Macaron ink - sponge edges of die cut layer with Crumb Cake ink
  • Add a strip of SNAIL adhesive to the center back of the greeting die cut - wind some Gold Metallic Thread around three fingers - slide off and push down on the Snail
  • Add a Dimensional to each end of the die cut and adhere to your card front
  • Stamp the inside as shown below and sponge the edges with Crumb Cake ink - WAAA LAAA!

Feature Friday - Faux Tile Video

DSCN8777

Whoo Hoo - it's FEATURE FRIDAY Video Day!!!

I'm so excited to share with you - here's a super easy and cool technique called Faux Tile.  All my stampers this month were really surprised at how easy this was!!!  They were shocked to see the card come together - because it's so easy!!!  Did I say EASY?

This card is a little different than the one in the video - I added pearls at the intersections of the diamond patterns.  I also used the metal rimmed pearls shown on page 161. Crumb Cake ink was used to sponge the edges of the tile and Blackberry Bliss for my flower and greeting image.

Geraniums For August

DSCN8917

Here's another gorgeous card I received in a swap.  I just love this flower...I think it looks like a Geranium...so that's what I'm going with!  The stamp set is called BEST THOUGHTS and it comes with 4 images....for only $14 in wood or $10 in clear mount.  It is also an EXCLUSIVE HOSTESS stamp set - which means you can get it for these fabulous prices when you host a party or place a minimum $150 order.

Do you notice the subtle background stamp that she used?  It's called WATERCOLOR WASH - I LOVE IT!!!  She stamped it with Sahara Sand ink. 

DSCN8918

This stamp set also uses the incredibly GOR-JEEEE-OUS TIMELESS ELEGANCE Designer Series Paper shown on page 143.  The black lace image on this card is actually the designer paper - so pretty! I have this paper and can't wait to show you all the cool things you can do with it!!!!

Tri-Fold LOVE!

DSCN8919

Isn't this beautiful???  My good friend BJ Peters gave this to me at convention last month - it was one of my VERY favorite swap cards!  I just love how she made the little tri-fold on the front.  She used the Nuetrals Color Collection paper (on the bottom of page 144) and an exclusive hostess set called FLORAL WINGS on page 180.  You can get this stamp set for only $10 when you host a party or place an order of $150 or more as your hostess rewards.  It also coordinates with the BOLD BUTTERFLY FRAMELITS on page 172.
