Striking Valentine

DSCN4414

What a striking Valentine!!! This swap card uses the VERY POPULAR Bloomin' Love stamp set and Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Die. I highly recommend the NEW Big Shot Die Brush. There's a video from Stampin' Up! showing how to use this Big Shot Die Brush below.

DSCN4415

Don't you love the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper flowers???

DSCN4415

Here's the video I mentioned - this Big Shot Die Brush will literally change your intricate die cutting LIFE! LOL!  It's the best $11 I've spent in a long time...no kidding! I am amazed that we now have dies for the big shot that look like they are laser cut - spectacular. I highly recommend using the Magnetic Platform and Precision Base Plate with one cutting plate as shown in the video - lots of great tips in this video:

Gor-Jee-Ous Gift Holder

DSCN9560

Isn't this adorbs???  It's two of the Pillow Box Dies - just slide them together and you have a gift box that is double the size.  This is a pretty good sized box - like you could fit a pair of socks in this puppy. The black belly band adds some support to the middle and covers the seams where the two boxes come together.

The Pillow Box die is shown below and you can bundle it with the A Little Something stamp set for a 15% discount.  The stamp set has the perfect sized stamps to decorate your box if you choose to use solid cardstock instead of Designer Series Paper.

I received this box from Jill Olsen when I was in Utah - she really loaded us up with some great treats!

Gifts for my Downline - OH MY!

DSCN8156

How stinkin' cute are these????  I had so much fun making them!  These little gift bags were given to my team members that attended the Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City a couple weeks ago!!!  I filled them with all kinds of little goodies for them!

DSCN8150

I used the ENGLISH GARDEN DESIGNER SERIES PAPER and the BOLD BUTTERFLY FRAMELITS - the little gift back were made with the AMAZING GIFT BAG PUNCH BOARD!!!  This punch board makes up three different sized gift bags in a snap.  This was the smallest of the three.  I have a video below from Stampin' Up! that shows you how easy they are to make.

Scary or just stinkin' cute???  I think it fits in the stinkin' cute category!!!  I found the layout for my dragon online and made a few changes...like the Decorative Dots texture for my dragons' skin...and the nostrils (how will my cutie patootie dragon breath fire without nostrils?) and the eyebrows made with the Bird Builder Punch - they are the wings from the bird.

If you'd like to make one of these adorable cards - come to my CARD BUFFET this Saturday from 9am - 1pm at Trinity Lutheran in Menasha!!!  This will be one of 16 different cards you get to choose from.  You'll enjoy picking 8 cards from the buffet of 16 for $18.  Including envelopes!  Pop me an email if you can make it!

21st Birthday!

DSCN8049

 My baby turns 21 today!!!!  Where did the time go???  She's somewhat of a little card shark, playing just about any card game you can think of with skill...so I've always said I was taking her to Las Vegas for her 21st birthday and TODAY is her birthday and we are on our way there!!!

Here is the birthday card I made for her:

DSCN8052

 

And here's one of the pages I made for her birthday present from our trip to Hawaii!  YES - she knows how lucky she is!!!  And I know how lucky I am to have her.  I'll try to share more pages and other card ideas with you while I'm waiting for her to get ready for our daily adventures - wink wink.

Butterflies for your broken leg?

DSCN7040

Here's a pretty card to share with you today - it was shared at my May Team Meeting.  Love the butterfly dies!!!!

DSCN7039

 

And here's another story....my BFF broke her leg!!!! EEEKKKKK!  She called me one day recently and told me that she had a fabulous idea - it was going to transform my stamping business!  WOW - couldn't wait to hear all about it -you know how much I LOVE my stamping business!!!  So this is before....

 

 

DSCN7980

And this is AFTER!!!  How stink in' cute is this????  Wanna know how we did it?  Mod Podge and die cut Designer Series Paper and Gold Glimmer Paper!!!!  I gooped the Mod Podge on her cast and then pushed the butterflies into it and painted over them again with a sponge brush.  One application - I didn't need to go back and paint over it after it was dry.  We did this a week ago and all the butterflies are still in place...the edges aren't popping up - no problems!  Funny thing...my BFF walked (opps - crutched!) into a local Mexican Restaurant last night and one of the customers saw her cast and said "are you friends with Kelly Acheson because that cast is FAMOUS!!!"  How funny is that???

The cast comes off next Tuesday - she's going to get a red or blue one and we are going to get to work decorating that beast for the 4th of July holiday!!!!  Can't wait to show you what's up next!

Berry Basket Perfect for Easter!!!

DSCN6651

Isn't this adorable???  I love the new Berry Basket die....and isn't this tag just the cutest?  I cut a 1/2" piece of the BEST DAY EVER Designer Series paper and glued it to the top of my 2" x 4" Whisper White card stock. Then I inserted it in the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and punched....super fun!  A little scallop on the bottom and we have SPECTACULAR!

Snowflake Die Card!!!

 

DSCN6018

 I had to share this pretty card with you - I made it for my Technique Tuesday class - and it was so simple!!!  The Snowflake Card Thinlits Die makes this a cinch!  I used Soft Sky cardstock with Soft Sky and Basic Black ink.  The Endless Wishes stamp set is so pretty...love all the little snowflakes and the font on the words.  Combined with some Silver Glimmer paper and silver ribbon and I think I have a winner!

DSCN6027

 I made my card larger than just cutting it with the die.  If you cut your cardstock at 5-3/8 x 8-1/2 - the 5-3/8 will fit inside the framelit perfectly so you can put the right side over the top of the die and not cut that part off.  After running it through the Big Shot - it will actually score that extra piece on the side so you can fold it over and have the right side flap to make your card wider  - TRY IT!!!
