Wonderful Romance Frame Card & Video


Today's card is the first card I've made using the Wonderful Romance Bundle from the Stampin' Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog. This stamp set, Wonderful Romance, and coordinating die set, Wonderful Floral Framelits, are so elegant! If you purchase these two items as a bundle, you'll save 10%. I can't wait until I can make more projects with this bundle!

I'm really happy how this one turned out. How do you like that frame? I made it with the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits from the Occasions Catalog, and Grapefruit Grove Foil from the Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Brochure. You can choose this as your FREE Sale-A-Bration when you place a $50 order (before shipping & tax). If you order from me, you'll also earn a doily when you use this month's host code. Once you earn 10 doilies, you'll get a $50 shopping spree from me, and I'll even pay for the shipping & tax! CLICK HERE to find out more! 

As you can see, the Grapefruit Grove Foil is also iridescent! It's so beautiful in person. I also love the stitched border on the inside and outside of the frame. This is made with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

Want to see how these rectangle dies work, and learn some tips on how to color with Stampin' Blends? Then you'll want to watch my video below. I demonstrate these things when making the card, along with showing you how to make the frame. I hope you like it!

Short & Sweet Saturday - Bloom By Bloom


I'm posting a little later than I wanted to today, but I finally have a Short & Sweet Saturday card for you. This card definitely goes along with Stampin' Up!'s #simplestamping campaign! This literally took me less than 5 minutes to make!

The card features the super cute Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. This stamp set is perfect for #simplestamping cards! The greeting comes from another Occasions Catalog stamp set, All That You Are.


Dimensions:
  • Lovely Lipstick:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Whisper White:  4" x 5-1/4"

Instructions:
  1. Stamp the large stem stamp from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set onto the bottom, left corner of the Whisper White piece using the Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the largest flower stamp on top of the stem using the Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin' Pad.
  2. Stamp the small stem stamp to the right of the large one using the Granny Apple Green ink pad. Stamp the smaller-version of the same flower stamp onto the top of this stem using the Highland Heather Classic Stampin' Pad.
  3. Stamp the "Happy Birthday" stamp from the All That You Are Stamp Set to the right of the flowers using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad.
  4. Stamp the trio-dot stamp from the Bloom By Bloom set randomly on the same piece using the Smoky Slate Classic Stampin Pad.
  5. Fold the Lovely Lipstick piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the stamped piece to the center of the card front.

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching

Short & Sweet Saturday - Forever Lovely


Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your day. We're having our first big snowfall of  the year here in Central Indiana. It's nice knowing that none of my family is working today, so they're all in their homes safe and sound. 😊

I'm finally back with my regular Short & Sweet Saturday (S&SS) cards. As long as nothing else unexpected happens, I should be able to post on a regular basis again! Yay!

Some of you have probably already heard, but in case you haven't, Stampin' Up! started a new hashtag campaign at On Stage (Stampin' Up! Convention) last November. It's called #simplestamping. You make a project using ONLY stamps, ink, and paper. Stampin' Up! challenged us to make a Valentine card, and this one is mine. I'll probably do some more very soon. It's fun to get back to stamping basics sometimes.

This card features the Forever Lovely Stamp Set in the Stampin' Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog. I used the Stamparatus when I made this one. The video below shows how the Stamparatus made is so easy to stamp the flowers onto the top and bottom of the Whisper White piece. I think you're going to love it! I also show you a paper-saving technique for your Designer Series Paper & Foil Sheets.

The cardstock/paper dimensions and supply list are below.


Dimensions:
  • Lovely Lipstick:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Whisper White:  4" x 4" (stamped layer)
  • Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets:  (2) 4" x 1/2"
  • All My Love Designer Series Paper:  (2) 4" x 3/4"

My First Butterfly Gala Card


This past month, I joined a Tutorial Co-Op through a business training group I'm in. The demonstrators in this co-op and I make one project a month, and write a tutorial for our project. In turn, we all get to use and share everyone's tutorials. What a time saver!

I'll be sharing some of these tutorials exclusively with those of you that are signed up to receive my newsletter emails, beginning with the next one I send out. Not on my newsletter email list? Click on the picture below to sign-up now.

Sign-Up to Get Exclusive Tutorials, Stampin' Up! News & Create With Christy News
Today's card is the card I made for the December group of tutorials. I've decided to make video tutorials for the projects I do for the co-op, and you can find the video below.

The card features the beautiful Butterfly Gala Bundle. The butterflies in this stamp set are gorgeous, and I love the Butterfly Duet Punch that coordinates with it. Purchasing the stamp set & punch together as a bundle will save you 10%


The card also features the elegant, Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog. Isn't that embossing folder beautiful?

Lasting Lily Sale-A-Bration Camp Card


Yes, I'm still here! The last few weeks have been so busy in the Fulk Household. Some things have been good, but some things not so good.

The Good:  My hubby had a lot of vacation days coming to him. He used some of them throughout the month of December, and took the rest of them, about 1-1/2 weeks, at the end of December for Christmas and New Year's. It was nice having him around. This was the first year that it was only us during the day. This is the first Christmas that our two daughters have lived on their own, and then our son, who still lives with us, was at work during the day. It was nice.

The Not So Good:  Once Christmas was over, I had planned on getting back to my regular schedule, but my brother-in-law, my husband's oldest brother, passed away unexpectedly two days after Christmas. I needed to be there for my husband, and the whole Fulk family, so I wasn't able to work at all for a few more days.

I've been playing catch-up for the last week, and finally have some projects to share with you. It's so good to be back! I'm having so much fun playing with my new stuff!

Today's card features the Lasting Lily Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. This stamp set is a Level Two Sale-A-Bration item...you can get it free with a $100 order (before shipping & tax). It's a wonderful 16 stamp photopolymer set, with SO MANY greetings included with the beautiful lilies!

Wrap the longest ribbon piece around the top part of the DSP, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the Whisper White piece. Fold the Grapefruit Grove piece in half (fold on the top) to form the card base. Attach the embossed/DSP piece to the center of the card front.
