February, 2018 Gift Offer Ends Tomorrow!


Tomorrow is the Last Day to Get the Glittery, Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape FREE From Me! Click On the Picture Above To Find Out How!

I've also made another card using this washi tape:


On this card, I made my own striped, glittery designer paper using the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape. I covered a piece of Whisper White Cardstsock completely with all three washi tape designs in the pack. I wish the picture showed how shiny and glittery it is!

This is the first card I've been able to make using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Epic Celebrations. This set makes great projects for men, teenagers, and all music lovers. I didn't use the music related stamps (a guitar and headphones) on this card, though. The only way you can get this stamp set is to place a $50 order (before shipping & tax) by March 31, 2018, and choose this stamp set as your free SAB item. You have the choice of clear-mount rubber stamps and wood-mount rubber stamps.


Dimensions:
  • Dapper Denim:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base) & scrap piece at least 3" both ways (outer mat)
  • Basic Black:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper:  scrap piece at least 2-3/4" both ways (middle mat)
  • Whisper White:  scrap piece at least 2-1/2" both ways (main image), 4" x 2" (washi tape layer), & 4" x 1" (greeting)
Instructions:
  1. Emboss the Basic Black piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
  2. Starting from one end of the Whisper White washi tape layer piece, attach a strip of the striped Dapper Denim tape from the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape that's a little longer than the 2" width of the cardstock. Wrap the tape ends to the back of the piece. Attach the narrow tape next to the first tape strip the same way and then attach the silver star tape next to it. Repeat this step until the whole piece of cardstock is covered.
  3. Attach the washi tape layer across the bottom-part of the Basic Black piece. Fold the large Dapper Denim piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the Basic Black/washi tape piece to the card base.
  4. Stamp the sneakers stamp from the Epic Celebrations Stamp Set onto the Whisper White scrap piece using the Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad. While the ink pad is closed, squeeze the center of the Dapper Denim Classic Stampin' Pad together. Open the ink pad up, and there will be a pool of ink in the lid. Color the sneakers in by picking the ink up with a Blender Pen, picking up more ink as needed (see picture). Die-cut the sneakers out with the third, largest square die from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies. Die-cut a square out of the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper using the second, largest square die, and die-cut another square out of the Dapper Denim scrap piece using the second, largest square die. Attach the sneaker square to the center of the glimmer paper square, and then attach it to the center of the Dapper Denim square. Then, attach it to the center of the card (see picture).
  5. Punch both ends of the Whisper White greeting piece with the Banner Triple Punch. When punching, insert the cardstock ends in as far as they will go into the punch. Stamp the "You're Awesome" stamp onto the center of the banner using the Dapper Denim ink pad. Attach the greeting banner to the top, left corner of the card, at an angle, using Stampin' Dimensionals (see picture).
When attaching, use Fast Fuse Adhesive, unless stated otherwise.

Here for You Card - Featuring Three Sale-A-Bration Items


Here's another card that I've made with the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes. This time, I used the Daffodil Delight design card and envelope. These cards and envelopes are a Sale-A-Bration (SAB) item, and you can only get them by placing a $50 order (before shipping & tax) by March 31, 2018, and choose them as your FREE SAB item. 

If you would like to see the other cards I've made with these Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes, CLICK HERE.

I also used the beautiful Blossoming Basket Bundle in the 2nd Release Sale-A-Bration brochure. This bundle is a Level Two SAB item, and you can get it by placing a $100 order (before shipping & tax) by March 31, 2018, and choose them as your FREE SAB item.

I also used another SAB item, the Shimmer Ribbon Pack. I used the Calypso Coral ribbon that comes in the pack.


Dimensions:
  • Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes - (1) Daffodil Delight Card & Envelope
  • Crumb Cake:  2-1/2" x 4-1/4" (embossed layer) & 3" x 5/8" (greeting)

  • Whisper White:  3-1/4" x 3-1/4" (main image) & scraps (butterfly)

Instructions:
  1. Emboss the large Crumb Cake piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Basket Weave embossing folder that comes in the Blossoming Basket Bundle. Wrap the Calypso Coral ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack around the right edge of the piece, and attach the ribbon ends to the back. Fold along the score line in a Daffodil Delight card from the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes. With the fold along the top, attach the embossed piece to the left side of the card.
  2. Stamp the flower basket stamp from the Blossoming Basket Stamp Set from the bundle onto the center of the Whisper White piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Color the flowers in with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, the leaves in with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, the flower centers in with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, and the basket in with the Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. See the picture for color placement. Attach the piece to the center of the Calypso Coral piece, and then attach it to the center of the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  3. Stamp the butterfly stamp onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Memento Pad. Color the center sections of the butterfly in with the Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blend, and the outer parts with the Light Old Olive Stampin' Blend. Fussy cut the butterfly out with Paper Snips, and attach it to the basket handle using a Mini Glue Dot. Bend the wings up a little bit.
  4. Stamp the "Here for you" stamp onto the center of the small Crumb Cake piece using the Memento Pad. Trim both ends of the piece at an angle with the Paper Snips (see picture). Put a Stampin' Dimensional on the back of the right end of the piece, and SNAIL Adhesive on the back of the left end. Attach the piece to the bottom, right of the card. The SNAIL end should be on the image layer, and the Dimensional side should be attached on the card base.
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.
