Short & Sweet Saturday - Dandelion Wishes


I hope you're all having a wonderful Saturday. It's a pretty hot one here, but it's been a good day. Well, it's time for another Short & Sweet Saturday card. Today, I used one of my favorites, Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set. I love this stamp set, and as you can see, it can make quick, easy, and beautiful cards!

I decided to to a monochromatic card (one color), and I chose Night of Navy. I hadn't used the Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon for awhile, and that's why I chose this color. I LOVE this ribbon! I've always like gingham ribbon, and I really like the width of this one. It's perfect!


Dimensions:

  • Night of Navy:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base) & 3" x 3-1/2" (flower mat)
  • Whisper White:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer), 2-3/4" x 3-1/4" (flower layer), & 3-1/4" x 1-1/4" (greeting)
  • Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4" x 1-1/2"
  • Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon:  6" & 5"

Instructions:

  1. Emboss the largest Whisper White piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Climbing Vine Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach the DSP piece across the bottom of the piece. Wrap the 6" piece of ribbon around the top of the DSP, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the embossed piece. Fold the largest Night of Navy piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the embossed piece to the center of the card front.
  2. Stamp the "I made a wish..." stamp from the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set onto the center of the Whisper White greeting piece using the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Die-cut the image out with the second, largest label die in the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. Attach it to the bottom, right corner of the DSP layer on the card.
  3. Stamp the dandelion-trio stamp onto the center of the Whisper White flower layer using the Night of Navy ink pad. Using a Sponge Dauber, sponge the middle of each dandelion with ink from the Night of Navy ink pad. Sponge lightly around the image with the same ink pad. Attach the flower layer to the center of the Night of Navy flower mat piece. Attach the piece to the upper-left of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Tie the 5" piece of ribbon onto the right side of the attached ribbon, using a single-knot. Trim the ribbon ends at an angle.

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Stitched All Around Bundle


I'm so sorry that I couldn't get this posted yesterday. My internet wasn't working very well, and it made it impossible to post. Thankfully, everything seems to be working again. Also, I'm using my new computer, and things seem to be working wonderfully!

Here’s this week’s Short & Sweet Saturday (S&SS) Card. I used the Stitched All Around Bundle on this card. The bundle includes the Stitched All Around Stamp Set and the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. Purchasing them together as a bundle saves you 10%.

I also used the Coastal Cabana dots from the new Glitter Enamel Dots. Don’t forget! You can get these enamel dots FREE from ME* with a minimum $65 order** using the Host Code QWUYDNMK. If your order is $150 or more,** do NOT use the host code. You’ll still get the Glitter Enamel Dots free from me.* You’ll need to hurry! This offer ends next week…Saturday, June 30, 2018. You can find out all of the details by CLICKING HERE.

*receive separate from your order in mid-July

  • Thick Whisper White:  8-1/2” x 5-1/2” (card base)

  • Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack:  6” & 8” (Coastal Cabana ribbon)

Instructions:

  1. Emboss the Whisper White embossed layer by running it through the Big Shot with the large embossing die from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. Use the following sandwich:  (beginning from the bottom) Big Shot Platform, Standard Cutting Pad, die with blade facing up, cardstock, thin gray silicone mat, and white impressions pad.  Put SNAIL Adhesive onto the back, center of the doily, and attach it to the bottom right of the embossed layer.
  2. Stamp the “Thank You” circle stamp from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set onto the center of the Whisper White greeting circle piece using the Melon Mambo Classic Stampin’ Pad. Die-cut the greeting out with the large circle label die.
  3. Punch leaves out with the Leaf Punch two times from the Vellum piece. Put a Mini Glue Dot onto the stem of both leaf sets. Thread a stem through a hole in the top, left of the circle, and attach the stem to the back of the circle. Do the same with the last leaf set, attaching it to the bottom, right of the circle. Thread the shorter ribbon piece through a hole through each side of the circle label. Attach the circle to the center of the doily using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Attach the ribbon ends to the back of the embossed piece.
  4. Attach the embossed piece to the center of the Melon Mambo piece. Fold the Thick Whisper White piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base.

Graceful Glass Suite by Stampin' Up!


I had hoped to have a project for you today, but I had to spend over half the day looking at computers. My computer has been slowing down, but now the keyboard is doing weird things. I can't use the shift key with the number row or the letter "m". 😠 The caps lock works with the "m" key, so I can do capital "m"s that way, but the caps lock doesn't work with the number row...just the letters. So, I can't do a lot of symbols, including explanation points. It's a little hard to type "Stampin' Up"...it needs that explanation point. 😜 My new computer will get here this weekend, so hopefully I'll have it up and running by Monday. My video software should work better on the new computer, too, so I should be able to start making videos now. Can't wait.

In the meantime, here's a great video from Stampin' Up. It showcases the wonderful Graceful Glass Suite. This suite is gorgeous. If you love stained glass, then you're going to love this suite.

Mother's Day Card - Abstract Impressions


I can't believe that I haven't posted the Mother's Day card I made my mom last month. I used one of my favorite bundles in the catalog...Abstract Impressions Bundle. It includes the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set and the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies. I also used the new Stitched Labels Framelits Dies for the greeting label. The beautiful printed paper is from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack.

It's very hard to see in the pictures, but I covered the large, corner floral die-cut with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. The subtle shimmer is SO pretty. Don't miss that pretty bow on the top right corner. I made it with the new Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. LOVE this ribbon.


Dimensions:
  • Petal Pink:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" [card base]
  • Grapefruit Grove:  4" x 5-1/4" base layer
  • Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper [DSP]:  3-7/8" X 5-1/8"
  • Whisper White:  4-1/4" a 5-1/2" [corner floral die-cut], 3" x 3-3/4" [label], and 5-1/2" x 2-1/2" [leaves and flowers]
  • Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon:  10"

Instructions:
  1. Die-cut the large floral die from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies out of the largest Whisper White piece. Brush the whole die-cut with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. Fold the Petal Pink piece in half [fold on the left] to form the card base. Attach the DSP piece to the middle of the Grapefruit Grove piece, and then attach the floral die-cut to the corner of DSP layer using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Attach the whole thing to the center of the card front.
  2. Die-cut the largest label die from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies out of the Whisper White label piece. Stamp the "Happy Mother's Day" stamp from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set onto the top, right corner of the label using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Attach the label to the card [see picture for placement].
  3. Stamp the smallest rose-like stamp from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set three times onto the Whisper White leaves and flowers piece using the Calypso Coral Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the medium-sized rose-like stamp with the Calypso Coral ink pad, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp it on top of one of the small rose-like images. Do the same with the other two. Stamp the largest rose-like stamp on top of each stamped rose using the Petal Pink Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the double-leaf outline stamp five times on the same piece using the Shaded Spruce Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the double-leaf-like bold stamp inside each outline using the Soft Sea Foam Classic Stampin' Pad. It won't fit perfectly, but it looks great. Fussy-cut all of the flowers and leaves out using Paper Snips.
  4. Putting SNAIL Adhesive onto the back, center of two of the roses. Attach one to the left, center edge of the label, and the other one to the bottom, center edge of the label. Attach the third rose to the bottom, left corner of the label using Stampin' Dimensionals. Attach the leaves around the flowers, tucking the ends under the roses a bit [see picture for placement].
  5. Tie the tulle ribbon into a bow. Attach it to the upper, right corner of the label using a couple Mini Glue Dots. Trim the ribbon ends at an angle.

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

Graduation Card - Hand Delivered


Yep, it's definitely graduation season! Here's another graduation card I made for one of our great-nieces who graduated from high school. I once again used used the super-cute, host-exclusive stamp set, Hand Delivered. I CASEd this one from Linda Callahan. I like making graduation cards with this stamp set, but I can't wait to use this stamp set for a birthday card. I want to use those balloons! LoL

As stated, this stamp set is a host-exclusive stamp set. It can only be obtained with a workshop order ($150 or more - before shipping & tax), and chosen as part of your Stampin' Rewards you earn. If you like this set, and live in the United States, there are three different ways you can get it (four if you're local to me). They are:
  1. Host a Facebook Virtual Workshop - I set up the Facebook group, you invite your friends and family, and I take care of the rest. Everyone can attend from the comfort of their own homes…even in their pajamas! There will be demonstration videos, project ideas, and so much more.
  2. Host a Catalog/Online Order Workshop - Collect orders and/or ask your friends and family to place their orders online using your exclusive host code.
  3. Place Your Own Workshop Order - Spoil yourself with your own personal party! Place a personal order of $150 (before shipping & tax) or more to earn Stampin’ Rewards. Go ahead, you deserve it!
  4. Host a Traditional In-Home Workshop (local customers only) -  Host your friends and family to a party in either my Stampin’ Up! classroom, your home, or another location of your choice.

If you don't have your own Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I'd love to help you earn this wonderful stamp set. Contact me at christyfulk@createwithchristy.com, if interested.


Dimensions:

  • Thick Whisper White:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Bermuda Bay:  2-3/4" x 4" (main image mat)
  • Whisper White:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer), 2-5/8" x 3-7/8" (main image base layer),  3" x 2-1/2" (main images) & 2-3/4" x 1/2" (greeting)
  • Share What You Love Designer Series Paper:  3" x 4-1/4"
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels:  2 large

Instructions:

  1. Emboss the Whisper White embossed layer by running it through the Big Shot with the Tufted Dynanmic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Fold the Thick Whisper White piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the embossed layer to the center of the card front. Tip:  Score the card base piece at 5-1/2" (with the 8-1/2" sides on the top and bottom). This helps the thick cardstock fold better. Attach the DSP piece to the center of the card, at an angle (see picture).
  2. Stamp the skirt/legs stamp from the Hand Delivered Stamp Set onto the Whisper White main images piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Stamp the books stamp next to it using the same ink pad. Stamp the striped skirt stamp inside the stamped skirt outline using the Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin' Pad. Color the images in with the following Stampin' Blends:  Rich Razzleberry Combo, Daffodil Delight Combo, Old Olive Combo (books), Ivory (legs and hands), Bermuda Bay Combo (shoes & books), Light Cherry Cobbler (books & apple). Fussy cut the two images out with Paper Snips.
  3. Attach the Whisper White main image base layer piece to the center of the Bermuda Bay piece. Attach the skirt/legs to the bottom, center of the piece. Attach the books to the top of the skirt, using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Attach it all to the center of the card, over the DSP, using Stampin' Dimensionals (see picture).
  4. Stamp the "To the Graduate" stamp to the center of the Whisper White greeting piece using the Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin' Pad. Cut a small triangle out of each end to form the banner. Attach it across the skirt using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. With the rhinestones still attached to the package backing, color two of the large rhinestones with the Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend Markers. When dry (dries in a few seconds), attach them to the bottom, right of the main image base layer (see picture).

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.
