Celebrate Sunflowers Celebrate You

Hello Everyone ~ I have a fun card front cut for my Celebrate Sunflowers Celebrate You card.

Well the storm has changed direction again.  At this point in time I am not sure what we will get.  The latest as of last night when I wrote this was we will get a Tropical Storm.  That means rain and wind.  Those of you who follow me in Southern Maryland are going to get a lot of rain and wind gusts.  We will see what tomorrow brings.

Today I am scheduled for a Facebook Live at noon.  As long as I have electricity and internet I will be going Live.  I then figure I will  be watching the rain and the weather to see what the winds do.  I am hoping overnight it takes a turn out to sea.

For today’s card I used a few techniques.  For the flower I stamped with Blackberry Bliss then used water painters to bleed the ink.  I also used alcohol and reinker to dye the ribbon.  I added a fun card front for the Celebrate Sunflowers Celebrate You creation.

Features of the Card

  • Celebrate Sunflowers bundle
  • card front ~ Whisper White – 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″   and   scrap
  • Gold foil sheets ~ 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

Positive Thoughts with Greenery Embossing Folder

Hello Everyone ~ I have a clean and simple Positive Thoughts with Greenery Embossing Folder idea today.

Well I did not do anything I was supposed to do yesterday.  Good news though ~ we got rain and I got internet and TV.  It is a temporary fix until they can come out and dig the trench.  I am just glad I have the TV to watch the news and see what this storm is going to do.

Today I am going to have to work on my videos and make a few more cards for the week.  I will also work on writing and scheduling my posts in case we loose electricity.  Somewhere in there I need to get to Walmart to get my order.  At least I can do the posts late in the evening if I need to.

Today’s card uses the Greenery embossing folder.  It is part of the product offering for my Inspiration in the Mail ~ Hello Fall online card class this month.  I loved playing with this folder and using it to create a longer panel than the folder.  Here is my video showing several tips to make this card.

 

Features of the Card

  • Positive Thoughts
  • card base ~ Whisper White – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Coastal Cabana ~ 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White ~ scrap for stamping and die cutting
  • Nature’s Thoughts dies
  • Greenery embossing folder
  • Gold glitter enamel dots

This clean and simple card is a great all occasion card. Check out the video for Positive Thoughts with Greenery Embossing Folder for some great tips.

Framed Under My Umbrella

Hello Everyone ~ I have the sweetest Framed Under My Umbrella card for you today.

Today registration for my August Inspiration in the Mail ~ Hello Fall online card class begins.  Check out the sticky post at the top and sign up for this fabulous class using the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle!

Well I still have not internet or TV.  The cable company came into my neighborhood 3 times and never came to my end of the street ~ our street is T shaped.  The last time he came in I was out in the middle of the road waving my arms and yelling and he still did not come down to my end.  With it being the weekend I don’t think I will get it back this weekend.  And we have a hurricane headed our way so Monday and Tuesday it is supposed to rain and possible winds so it does not look like it will happen then either.  We have a commercial account here in the development so all correspondence needs to go through the lady in the main sales office.  She contacted them and they have me on the list for repair.  I doubt they are working this weekend and I am behind some people who have outages.  The hurricane is supposed to bring us rain and wind on Monday and Tuesday so it won’t happen that day.  I am going to see if my video will upload tomorrow or if there won’t be enough signal for it to transfer.  I am crossing my fingers!  As I was writing this Friday evening the latest is that the hurricane is going to hit Eastern North Carolina.  That would be me.  I may be heading to Jess’ on Sunday!

Today I will be working on making cards for the next week.  I am hoping to at least get the cards uploaded with some simple information in case everyone looses electricity.  I am thinking I will not post every day like I usually do as I may need to get some things done just in case.  I am hoping we just get rain!

I played with another frame idea ~ can you tell I like playing with frames?  This one is such a sweet card and I also used the Greenery embossing folders which is part of the product option for the Inspiration in the Mail ~ Hello Fall class.  I also used a great color combo.  Here is my Framed Under My Umbrella creation.

Features of the Card

  • Under My Umbrella
  • card base ~ Just Jade – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Pretty Peacock ~ 3 1/2″ x 5″   and   2″ x 3″
  • Whisper White ~ 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″    and   scraps for stamping on
  • Stitched Rectangles dies
  • Greenery embossing folders
  • Whisper White bakers twine (retired)
  • Bumblebee ~ Just Jade ~ Magenta Madness ~ Pool Party ~ Pretty Peacock markers
  • Gold Glitter enamel dots

This sweet Framed Under My Umbrella uses a great color combo. This is just the cutest card. See all the details for this adorable card!

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am hoping we only get rain from the hurricane so I don’t have to evacuate.  It will be interesting to see how it affect the East Coast as it is supposed to go up the coast with the current track.  Have a Super Saturday and do you like that color combo I used for the Framed Under My Umbrella creation?

 

 

 

 

Sailing Home Masculine Idea

Hello Everyone ~ I have great Sailing Home Masculine Idea today.

Technology is still not my friend!  You would not believe what I went through yesterday. It began about 2:30 when my neighbor knocked on my door and asked if I had TV.  I did not and I lost my internet.  His Landscaper cut my fiber optic cable.  We called the cable company and they said they could come out on August 4th.  I told them that was a problem as I work from home.  She said they will see if someone can come out in the evening.

So I spent some time in my studio making some cards.  When I finished up I had to post that I was cancelling my Facebook Live as my cellular signal is not good so it would not be a good feed.  I then started to work on my post for today.  I went looking for the video for the card today.  I could not find it on my phone.  I even tried to see if I could recover it and that did not work.  So not sure if it didn’t record or if it got deleted.   So I just decided to work on my photos and edit them and download as I had a few to do.  That is when more issues arose.  My phone would not download my photos.  I did some research and I have to have WiFi to download.  I connect to my neighbors and thought everything would be fine.  Well I was wrong there.  I still could not download them.  I decided to try and download 1 at a time.  Well that worked and I then proceeded to download my photos 1 at a time.  A few would not download so I went back and reverted back to the original.  Then I could download them.  That meant I had to edit them after I got them downloaded.  As you can see technology was not good to me.  I am hoping today will be a better day in the area of technology!

Today’s card again uses the Greenery embossing folder.  I decided to use one to make a panel for the card front.  The lighthouse was stamped and then the bottom was embossed.  To add some interest I angle cut the panel.  The rest is pretty straight forward.  Here is my Sailing Home Masculine Idea.

Features of the Card

  • Sailing Home
  • card base ~ Basic Gray – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White ~ 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″
  • Peony Garden dsp ~ 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Greenery embossing folders
  • Smooth Sailing dies
  • Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo pack

Another great masculine card idea. Don't you love this idea. See what designer series paper I used for the background of this Sailing Home Masculine Idea creation.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am hoping my cable gets repaired today but there is no guarantee.  I may have to make some adjustments if it doesn’t as it was freezing a lot.  Have a Fabulous Friday and did you like the angled cut for the panel on my Sailing Home Masculine Idea?
