Flying Home Tutti Frutti Card


Are you looking for a cute, but quick, card to make? This one fits the bill! This is the first time I've been able to make a card using the super cute Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes. This cards and coordinating envelopes pack is a Sale-A-Bration item, and you can get this pack FREE by placing a $50 order (before shipping & tax) by March 31, 2018 at my Online Store. This card base is one of four other designs in the pack. I'll be making more cards using the other card designs, and I'll be posting them during this week.


Dimensions:
  • Tutti-Frutti Card - (1) Pool Party Card
  • Calypso Coral:  2" x 5-1/4" (banner)
  • Whisper White:  3-1/4" x 3-1/4" (circle)
  • Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon:  12"
Instructions:
  1. Punch one of the narrow ends of the Calypso Coral piece with the Banner Triple Punch. Emboss the banner by running it through the Big Shot with the floral folder from the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. Fold a Pool Party card from the Tutti-Frutti Card & Envelopes in half. Attach the banner down the center of the card, lining the top, straight edge of the banner with the top edge of the card.
  2. Stamp the floral birdhouse stamp from the Flying Home Stamp Set onto the center of the Whisper White piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Use the following Stampin' Blends to color the image:  Pool Party (bird and flowers), Calypso Coral (flowers), Daffodil Delight (flowers), Old Olive (leaves), & Crumb Cake (birdhouse) Stampin' Blends Combos (see picture).
  3. Die-cut the image out with the second, largest circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Attach the circle to the card, a little above center. Tie the Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon into a bow. Trim the ribbon ends at an angle, and attach the bow to the top of the circle using a Mini Glue Dot.
When attaching, use SNAIL Adhesive, unless stated otherwise.

My Hubby's Valentine's Day Card - 2018


I wanted to post this on Valentine's Day, but I was busy spending time with my Valentine! 😍 This card was great as a Valentine's Day card, but it would also make a great masculine anniversary card if the embossed Valentine message on the big heart is omitted. I love the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper as a background to the hearts and the copper embossed heart outline on the wood.


Dimensions:
  • Cherry Cobbler:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Soft Suede:  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer)
  • Crumb Cake:  3-7/8" x 5-1/8" (embossed layer) & 4" x 5-1/4" (inside of card)
  • Very Vanilla:  4-1/2" x 3-1/2" (hearts, leaves, & banner)
  • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP):  3-7/8" x 3-1/2"
  • Copper Foil:  (2) 3-7/8" x 3/4"
  • 5/8" Burlap Ribbon:  (2) 1-1/2"
  • 1/4" Copper Trim:  (2) 1-1/2"
Instructions:
  1. Brush the Embossing Buddy all over the DSP piece. Stamp the vine-like heart outline stamp from the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set onto the left-side of the DSP piece using the VersaMark Pad. Pour Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder over the heart, and tap off the excess powder. Melt the emboss powder with the Heat Tool until raised and shiny (heat embossing technique). Attach one of the Copper Foil pieces across the back of the DSP piece, along the bottom, making sure about 1/4" shows from the front. Attach the other piece to the top of the DSP piece the same way.
  2. Emboss the Crumb Cake embossed layer piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach the DSP/Copper Foil piece across the center of the embossed piece. Then, attach it all to the center of the Soft Suede piece. Fold the Cherry Cobbler piece in half to form the card base (fold on the left). Attach the Soft Suede piece onto the center of the card base.
  3. Stamp the largest heart stamp onto one end of the Very Vanilla piece using the Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin' Pad. Brush the Embossing Buddy across the heart. Stamp the heart-shaped greeting stamp onto the center of the heart using the VersaMark Pad. Heat emboss the greeting with Copper embossing powder (refer to Step 1)
  4. On the same Very Vanilla piece, stamp the leaf branch stamp onto the piece four times using the Tranquil Tide Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the "I'm yours" heart stamp onto the piece using the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the "always" heart stamp and the "be mine" heart stamp onto the piece using the Powder Pink Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the banner greeting stamp onto it using the Cherry Cobbler ink pad. Die-cut them all out with their coordinating dies from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.
  5. Lay one of the Copper Trim pieces along the center of one of the Burlap pieces. Attach one end to the back, left side of the large heart at an upwards angle. Attach the other Copper Trim and Burlap pieces the same way, but at downwards angle (see picture). Trim the ends at an angle. Attach the large heart to the lower right side of the embossed heart outline using Stampin' Dimensionals. Attach two branch die-cuts onto the bottom, left of the heart, tucking the branch stems underneath the heart. Attach the other two branch die-cuts the same way, but onto the top,right of the heart.
  6. Attach the "I'm yours" heart to the bottom, right of the large heart using a Stampin' Dimensional. Attach the "always" heart to the right of it, tucking the left side of the heart under the first one.
  7. Inside of card - Attach the banner greeting along the bottom of the last Crumb Cake piece. Attach the "be mine" heart to the top, left of the banner, tucking the bottom of the heart under the banner. Attach the whole piece to the inside of the card base.
When attaching, use Fast Fuse Adhesive, unless stated otherwise.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Heartfelt Blooms


It's time for another Short & Sweet Saturday card! I used one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items, the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set. I LOVE the detail in the floral stamp in the set, and the greetings are wonderful, too! What I love the most is that stamping the floral stamp in just one color is SO beautiful. Yes, it can be colored in, but I think it's gorgeous stamped in a single color, too. I stamped it in Night of Navy this time, and I think it's gorgeous!

The only way you can get this beautiful stamp set is to place at least a $50 order (before shipping & tax) by March 31, 2018, and choose it as your FREE Sale-A-Bration item. After March 31, it'll be gone forever! 

If you order everything in the supply list below (minus the Big Shot & SNAIL Adhesive), you'll be placing a $61.50 order, which means you can get the Heartfelt Stamp Set FREE! If you already own the Stampin' Dimensionals, it'll be a $57.50 order, which still qualifies! If you don't own the Big Shot, you can add it to your order, get Stampin' Rewards, and get either two more Level One Sale-A-Bration items or one Level Two Sale-A-Bration item FREE, along with the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set!

If you can't see the supply list, because you're reading this through an email feed, you'll need to go to the actual blog post to see it.


Dimensions:
  • Thick Whisper White:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Night of Navy:  2" x 5-1/2" (embossed strip) & 3-3/4" x 3-1/8" (main image mat)
  • Whisper White:  3-1/2' x 2-7/8" (main image) & 3" x 2" (greeting)
Instructions:
  1. With an 8-1/2" side along the top, score the Thick Whisper White piece at 5-1/2". Fold along the score line to fold the cardstock in half. Note:  This thick cardstock folds much better being scored first.
  2. Emboss the long Night of Navy piece by running it through the Big Shot inside the vine-like folder in the Petal Pairs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. Attach the piece up & down the center of the card base.
  3. Stamp the large floral stamp in the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set onto the center of the Whisper White main image piece using the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Attach the piece to the center of the Night of Navy main image mat piece. Then, attach it to the top, center of the card base.
  4. Stamp the "Thinking of You" stamp onto the Whisper White greeting piece using the Night of Navy ink pad. Punch the greeting out with the Pretty Label Punch. Attach it to the bottom, center of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching items, unless stated otherwise.
