Quick and Easy Handmade Tropical Chic

Happy Friday Everyone ~ I hope you smile when you see my Quick and Easy Handmade Tropical Chic creation!

Well I did not get anything unpacked and put away yesterday.  Bijou had a spa appointment in the morning and then I had papers to sign and errands to run.  By the time I was done it was lunch time and then I had to clean the bathroom.  I ran to the store with Barb as I forgot a few things when I went earlier.  It was dinner time by then and I had to get ready for my Facebook Live.  I had the cutest project last night.  I will be making a few more of them to share in the group.  Today I have to make my dessert for tomorrow and swiffer the floor.  Then I have to make my cards to post next week.  I am also hoping to clean up the bed I have for the girls room so I can start to get that room put together.  Busy, busy, busy!

Today I have another Fast & Fabulous video for you.  This one was fun and I struggled with the flowers but I wanted them to look like the plumeria you find in Hawaii.  Let me know if I achieved that look.  Here is the video showing how I made the Quick and Easy Handmade Tropical Chic card.

One Sheet Wonder Design Idea

Good Morning Stampers ~ I have the final One Sheet Wonder Design Idea for you today.

Well yesterday I got a lot done.  I walked then went to water aerobics.  It was raining during the class but we stuck it out despite the fact the water was very cold.  I came home and took a hot shower to warm up.  I then had a conference call.  After lunch I went into the girls bedroom.  I managed to unload 9 bins.  The only bins in there now are the ones with my baskets and one that has items for my studio.  I will get those taken care of over the next few days.  Today Bijou has a spa appointment this morning.  Then I need to go to the grocery store to get items to make my dessert for our street’s picnic this weekend.  This will be my first time attending as last year at this time I was trying to sell my house.  I have met a few of my neighbors so it will be nice to meet some more of them.

Today I am sharing the last card from my Pop of Petals One Sheet Wonder.  This one uses the folded piece that was part of the video I made.  You can find the video here in case you want to see how to fold the designer series paper.  After I folded the paper, I attached it to a piece of Granny Apple Green card stock.  To create the border at the bottom, I used images from the Pop of Petals stamp set and Blushing Bride and Granny Apple Green inks on the Whisper White panel.  I then attached the strip with the folded designer series paper down the left hand side of the panel leaving a little space on the side.  This panel was attached to a Blushing Bride card base.  The butterfly from the stamp set was stamped using Blushing Bride ink and punched using the coordinating punch.  The butterfly was also stamped on the right hand side of the card front and the punched butterfly was attached on top using a dimensional.  To add some bling, I used the Wink of Stella to color the body.  Here is my completed One Sheet Wonder Design Idea.

Here is the last One Sheet Wonder Design Idea. Don't you love that fold? Find all the details by clicking the photo.

Monochromatic Card Idea

Hello Ladies ~ are you ready for another Monochromatic Card Idea?  It uses the same set that is my Online Card Class for this month.

Well thanks to Barb I got a lot done yesterday.  I went and had my hair done so I have my pink back in that you will see on Thursday evening during my Facebook Live.  After that I came home and had lunch and then went into the girls bedroom.  I managed to unpack 4 bins.  Barb had come over to bring me a stamp set I wanted for the Facebook Live.  She then helped me organize all my hand towels into 2 bins.  When I finish drying everything I will put all of them in the bins and store them in the garage until the month I need them.  We then went upstairs to the craft room.  We put away a lot of my supplies and got a lot of the bins organized.  I am down to a few boxes which I can tackle over the next few days.  I have a lot space left for storage which I am excited about.  Here is a photo of all the empty boxes and bins from today’s work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we went out into the garage and went through all the bins I had.  We kept some of the sturdy ones and now I have a ton of bins to give away to anyone who needs it for moving.  I am hoping to get them out of the garage by Thursday.  If not I will take them to the recycling center.  I cannot believe how many bins I had!

Today I have a pretty One Color Wonder for you.  It was fun to use different images and some generation stamping to get different colors.  Here is the video for my Monochromatic Card Idea.

 

 

 

Here is the photo of the card so you can see the fun border I created.

Come Sail Away Bundle

Hello Everyone ~ I have another Come Sail Away Bundle idea for you today.

Well the HVAC guys were here so long I did not get to run my errands until late.  That meant I did not get into my craft room.  Doug did get my cabinet attached to the wall so I will wipe it down and begin unloading my yarn.  I made it to the store and planted my daisies outside now to cross my fingers and hope they take as I usually don’t have good luck with things I plant.  I can keep things alive if someone else plants them but if I plant them they usually don’t make it.  Cross your fingers for me that they make it!  The HVAC guys gave me a new compressor.  I am hoping that takes care of the problem.  The humidity level in the house is way too high.  It does seem a little better in here so I am hoping in a few days it evens out.

I played with the Come Sail Away Bundle again.  I had used this bundle for my Facebook Live a couple of weeks ago where I used a 6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder and created 4 cards that were cute.  If you would like to see them search for Creations in Paper and join our group.  For today’s idea I wanted to color my lighthouse like the ones you would find in North Carolina.  When I did my research the lighthouses in my area are gray/white with a black base.  So I inked up the stamp with Smoky Slate and then used the Basic Black marker to color the base.  I used the Gray Granite marker to color the rocks at the bottom.  After I stamped it, I used the coordinating framelit to cut it out.  A Night of Navy card base was used with a layer of Sahara Sand.  A strip of the Come Sail Away designer series paper was added to a Night of Navy panel and then added to the right hand side of the card base.  The lighthouse was added to the left hand side using dimensionals.  To finish off the card, some of the Sail Away Trinkits were added to the designer series paper.  Here is the completed Come Sail Away Bundle creation.

Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes Handmade Card

Happy Monday Stampers ~ up today is an adorable Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes Handmade Card.

I was pretty successful yesterday.  I got my videos made, finished my cards for my card class, did a lot of laundry, and managed to plan out where to store some of my towels.  Doug came over and has started working on attaching my cabinet to the wall.  I have a tall cabinet and it needs to be attached to the wall so it does not tip over.  Today I have water aerobics this morning and then the HVAC guy is coming.  I also have to get to the store as I need potting soil to plant my daisies outside.  I will do that this afternoon also.  Then I will be in my craft room as I have to get started with putting things away.  I am hoping to get at least 2 boxes/bins emptied but a lot will depend on the time I can get to the store.

I pulled out my Dandelion Wishes stamp set and decided to play with it.  I used the stamp that had the single bloom with the seeds blowing away from the bloom.  I inked it up with Daffodil Delight and stamped it.  I cut it down so there were only a few of the seeds blowing away.  I mounted this onto a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock.  A piece of Gingham Gala designer series paper was cut a little larger than the image panel.  It was also mounted onto a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock.  To create my background panel, I took a strip of Basic Black and using the Banner Triple punch I flagged both ends.  The stamp with the seeds on it were used to stamp in the upper left hand corner and the lower right hand corner in Memento Tuxedo Black.  This panel was added to a Daffodil Delight card base.  I then layered the other panels I created using dimensionals.  To add a little more interest, I added some of the Lemon Lime Gingham Gala sequins.  Here is the completed Stampin’ Up Dandelion Wishes Handmade Card.
