Detailed Dragonfly from Stampin’ Up

Hello Everyone ~ I have a cute card today that uses the Detailed Dragonflies from Stampin’ Up.

Well I spent all day yesterday working on my tutorial for my last 12 Weeks of Christmas projects.  This one was  so cute.  If you missed it you really missed a great project.  To make sure you don’t miss any more of my great projects, sign up for my newsletter on the right.

Can you believe Christmas is a week away?  I don’t know where the last few months went.  They seem to fly by lately.  I still have my big project for the girls to finish this week.  I will be working on it this week when everyone is at school or work.  Once I get the pages finished, it will be easy to put together.  I am super excited about it as I am sure it will be a surprise for Jess and the girls will appreciate it when they get older.

Today is my 10 Minute Creation.  This is my 32nd video in this series.  It just seems like yesterday that I started it.  I hope you have enjoyed them.  If would like me to continue them let me know.  Here is my video for my Detailed Dragonflies from Stampin’ Up creation.





Here is my card so you can examine it closer.

Oh So Eclectic Hello

Hello Stampers ~ I played a few days ago and used some designer series paper to create my Oh So Eclectic Hello card.

Remi was adorable during her program yesterday.  She knows all the words and actions to the songs but she did not sing at all.  She did do all actions.  I have to say we were very proud of her as some of the younger ones got really upset and started crying but she did not follow suit.  Here are a few pictures I took.





















After my workshop yesterday I made my video for Sunday.  Wait until you see the cute card!  I also worked on a project that is adorable.  Haven’t decided how I am going to share it.  Have to see what would be the best way to share it.

I needed a break from all the Holiday and snow cards so I opted to play with some of my other toys.  One of the things I played with was the designer series paper from the Oh So Eclectic suite.  This paper is very colorful and fun to play with.  I choose to use the chevron piece as I loved all the colors.  I also have some of the Night of Navy gingham ribbon.  I love this ribbon and felt it matched the dsp.  I wrapped the ribbon around the dsp and attached it using Tear & Tape.   I then added the dsp to a Night of Navy card base.  The dsp was 4″ x 5 1/4″ so when I added it to the card base I matched up the upper right hand corners so there was a border on the left hand side and the bottom only.  The ribbon needed a bow so I tied one and added it with some glue dots.  I used one of the sentiments from the set and stamped it onto a piece of Whisper White using Night of Navy ink.  I cut the card stock down and flagged the one end.  I distressed the edges of the sentiment using Night of Navy ink.  I added the sentiment layer to the card with dimensionals.  Here is my completed Oh So Eclectic Hello card.

Stampin’ Up Best Day Ever Card

Happy Friday Ladies ~ today I am sharing a Stampin’ Up Best Day Ever Card as we always need All Occasion cards.

My energy audit took 3 hours yesterday.  I was surprised it was so long.  He did every test possible to see how I can lower my energy consumption.  I was thinking I had some duct work problems but it did not indicate there was a problem in this area.  I am wondering what he found with some of his tests.  They should be ready some time next week so then I can do some things to change my usage.

Today Remi has a program at school.  We will go over there at 8 and then come back in about an hour.  I have a workshop this morning to begin the first class of the Christmas mini album.  I had one class on Wednesday evening and the ladies there got the book completed as well as the pocket pages.  I am planning on doing the same with the ladies this morning.  We will finish their books next week.

My card today began with the sketch challenge at Try Stampin’ – or not – on Tuesday 

I liked the simple layout so I decided to give it a try.  I began by using a piece of Basic Black and embossing it with the Brick Wall Embossing folder.  This was attached to a Whisper White card base.  I then took some of the Merry Little Christmas dsp a piece of the Real Red 1/8″ ribbon and ran it across the area where the 2 papers are joined.  Tear & Tape was used to attach the ribbon on the back and a glue dot to attach it on the left hand side.  This was placed so that it would be hidden behind the sentiment layer.  These papers were attached to the card base using Tear & Tape.  The sentiment was stamped using Real Red ink and then mounted to a piece of Real Red card stock.  This was added to the card base with dimensionals.  Here is my completed Stampin’ Up Best Day Ever Card.

Fancy Fold Christmas Card

Hello Everyone ~ I have a Fancy Fold Christmas Card for you today.

Yesterday was another busy day.  I had a workshop in the morning then worked on cutting for the mini album kit I needed.  I had to go to the dentist ~ yay!!!!!!!!! no cavities ~ and when I got back I vacuumed and then started cutting for 2 more kits I needed.  I also had my first mini album class last night.  Needless to say I was pretty tired.  Today I have an energy audit being conducted and then I am headed to the yarn shop.  I will also have to finish kitting the last 2 kits for tomorrow morning.  I have nothing this weekend so I will be able to relax and play with some ideas I have been wanting to try.

My card today started with an idea I saw on a You Tube video on a mini album.  I saw the idea and thought that it would be a good idea for a card so I decided to give it a try.  Make sure you let me know what you think of my card.  I began with some designer series paper that would not be used for Christmas.  My card base is a single layer of Garden Green.  I cut a piece of Painted Autumn dsp that was 4′ x 5 1/4″ but did not attach it.  I cut a piece of Very Vanilla that was 4″ x4 1/2″.  It was scored at 1/2″ on the 4 1/2″ side.  Using Tear & Tape I attached the 1/2″ piece to the back of my dsp centering it top to bottom.  Then I added the dsp and flap to the card base.  The corners of the flap were rounded and a piece of the Delightful Daisy dsp was added on top that had the corners rounded also.  For the inside, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla that measured 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ and round all the corners.  The sentiment is from Labels to Love and I stamped it using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I mounted this piece onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler that measured 3″ x 3″  that the corners were rounded.  This piece was attached to the card base underneath the flap.  Now you just have to decorate the flap front.  I used the Leaf framelit form Seasonal Layers and a video by Valita to create poinsettia.  I used the same framelit for the leaves.  Once I had my poinsettia  created I attached it to the flap using glue dots.  The center was created with a 1/2″ circle punch of Silver foil and a clear Faceted gem.  Here is my completed Fancy Fold Christmas Card.

Monochromatic Seaside Shore Card

Hello Stampers ~ My One Color Wonder card is a Monochromatic Seaside Shore Card today.

Wow was I a busy bee yesterday.  I had a workshop in the morning and when it was over I had to go pick up  some card stock I needed.  When I got back I went outside and cut down my butterfly bushes.  They needed to be cut back so I took advantage of the nice weather to do it.  It is going to get bitter cold today and I did not want to have to do it in the cold.  After that I ate my lunch and then recorded my video for today.  After I finished the editing and it was uploading I cleaned my bathrooms.  Then I started cutting another mini album kit for my class.  And all of this was completed before 5 as I had to pick up the girls since Jess had her Christmas party.  I can’t believe all that I got done in that time frame.  I guess when I  get going I am on a mission.  I hope you had a productive day yesterday also.

Today is my One Color Wonder card.   This one was to use Pool Party and Seaside Shore.  I began with the sketch at Try Stampin’ – or not – on Tuesday








This was a staring point for me as you will see in my video I did modify it a little.  Here is my video to show how I made my card.




Here is my card for you to see all the parts.
