Color Blocking Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper

Hello Stampers ~ ready for another technique with my Color Blocking Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper card?

Well it is official!  My house is on the market.  Now the fun begins with realtors bringing prospective buyers in.












When I get the phone call I will need to take Bijou and leave for about an hour.  This should be fun it will be interesting to see how many times I have to do it.  I will keep you informed.

Today is my 10 Minute Creation video.  I was in a bit of a panic last night as I could not find my video in iMovie.  I could not remember if I had done one or not.  I had crossed it off my to do list so I was pretty certain I had.  I looked on my phone and found it.  I had not uploaded it yet.  Did I breathe a sigh of relief!  Here is my Color Blocking Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper card.



Are you ready to see this card up close?  This way you can check out the color blocking.  Here is my card.

Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack

Hello Ladies ~ I played with the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack again!

Well I could not do my Facebook Live last night.  My internet was down again!  I called and complained that I was always loosing internet lately.  The gentleman did a test and said the signal coming to me had some issues so they are sending someone out between 2 and 5 to fix it.  I sure how so as I am tired of the issues I am having.  When I don’t have internet I also don’t have TV since I use the Amazon Fire Stick for my TV.  It was a long quiet evening!  I wrote this post in hopes that I would get it long enough to schedule it.  If it was not here when you looked this morning, I did not get it back last night and had to post it this morning.

Since I am pressed for time I opted to share some more cards using the Petal Passion Memories and More card pack.  There are some great images in the pack.  All of them have black and white and some have some Powder Pink.  I chose 2 of the same image that have different orientations and had some pink dots on it.  Those cards I did using Powder Pink and the Petal Passion designer series paper.  I then chose 2 cards that have the same image again with a different orientation but that only are black and white.  I paired the 2 of them with 2 different colors to show how versatile these cards can be.

For the first set I used the Powder Pink marker to color the image along with Lemon Lime Twist for the leaves.  I mounted the cards on a piece of Powder Pink.  I opted to use 2 different ribbons to show how you can pair the cards with other products.  I used the Silver metallic edge ribbon and the Basic Black shimmer ribbon.  After I wrapped the ribbon around and made my bow I attached the panel to the Whisper White card base.  Here are the first 2 cards.































For the next 2 cards I chose a solid black image with 2 different orientations.  I paired these images with some of the Petal Passion designer series paper.  I mounted the imaged onto the designer series paper and then added my ribbon.  My ribbon is one that matches the card base.  One is Sweet Sugarplum and the other is Peekaboo Peach.  I used retired ribbon in those colors and after the ribbon was attached I added the panel to the same color card base using dimensionals.  Here are my next set of cards.



































Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.   Today will be a busy day as I have the power washer coming, the internet guy coming, and I have to take some things to a friend.  I am also having lunch with my downline.  I hope you have some fun things planned as it is supposed to be a beautiful day!  Have a Super Saturday and if you have the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack pull it out and see what cards you can come up with!



Eastern Beauty A Note For You

Hello Ladies ~ I have an Eastern Beauty A Note For You card to share today.

Well I am down to just a few more things I have to deal with before the house is listed tomorrow.  I have packed a bunch of bins in my closets to get them out of the way.  I need to finish up the great room and take photos tomorrow.  I am so tired and sore with hauling all my bins upstairs.  And I cannot even sleep in to make sure I get it all done.  I need to also make a card for tomorrow.  I have my video for Sunday done so it will be another busy day!  Maybe I will get to sleep some next week!

Today is my Fast & Fabulous video.  The idea for this card was actually a scrapbook page sketch I saw.  I also combined 2 different designer series papers on this card.  As long as the 2 papers have something in common you can usually combine them.  Since Petal Passion and Whole Lot of Lovely both have black backgrounds those are the 2 I used.  Here is the video for my Eastern Beauty A Note For You creation.




Did you love how I combined the 2 designer series papers?  I know you need to see all the details up close, so here is a photo of my creation.

Beautiful Day from Stampin’ Up

Good Morning Everyone ~ today I used Beautiful Day from Stampin’ Up for my creation.

Well I met with the real estate agent last night.  We are putting the house on the market this weekend.  I still have some things to finish up but mainly it is moving my packed bins upstairs to the closet.  I moved a lot yesterday and had to quit as I was exhausted.  I am so going to enjoy my vacation next week.  Between now and the time I leave I have to get my cards created and my videos recorded and uploaded.  I will be busy this weekend!  I also have to get my Facebook card designed and posted.  So much to do and so little time!

After I met with the real estate agent I had to get my card made.  I didn’t have a lot of time so I went for a simple layout.  I had the bright idea to emboss the image and then use the marker and blender pen and ink in the lid to color it in.  I wasn’t thrilled with how it turned out so I decided to use my aqua painter and blend the ink a little more.  It did blend it a little more but still not sure about it.  You will have to leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Here is the procedure I used.  I stamped and embossed the image.  Then using my Sweet Sugarplum marker I colored the petal from the center to about the middle of the petal.  Then I took my blender pen and using the ink in the lid I colored the petal from the outside edge to the center of the petal making sure to blend the two.  After I had colored all the petals, I was not happy with the look so I grabbed my aqua painter and a little container of water and used the water to color all the leaves.  I used the brush and water to blend the ink a little more.  While it looks better it is not what I think it should look like.  I think it would have been better to use watercolor paper but that is hard to stamp on and emboss.  After I had my image colored I set it aside to dry.  I embossed a panel using the sequin embossing folder.  This folder was added to the Sweet Sugarplum card base using Tear & Tape.  The colored flower was added to a Wild Wasabi panel a little larger than the image panel.  This panel was added to the card base using dimensionals.  To finish off my Beautiful Day from Stampin’ Up creation I used some of the retired Sweet Sugarplum glimmer ribbon and tied a bow.  Here is my completed creation.

Label Me Pretty

Happy Wednesday Everyone ~ are you ready to see my One Color Wonder Label Me Pretty card?

Well I have a ton of tasks to get done today before the real estate agent gets here this evening.  I have some donations to make to get more things out of my house.  I spent a lot of time yesterday working on my bins in the foyer.  They are now organized and cleaned out.  Today I am hoping to get my great room cleaned up a little and then I have to work on the kitchen and dining room.  Then I will be done and the house will be organized to be listed at least.  I will then spend the rest of the week getting things finalized and cleaned.  I will need my vacation I will be taking next week!

Today is my One Color Wonder Wednesday.  Last week I chose Smoky Slate and Label Me Pretty.  My card turned out pretty despite the fact that I realized at 4 pm yesterday I had not made the video or card.  Here is the video showing how to make this pretty card.




Now I know you can’t wait to see this card up close to really see all the details.  Here is the beautiful creation.


















Here is the inside and the envelope to go with this card.
