Twisted One Sheet Wonder Thanks

Hello Everyone ~ I have another idea for the Twisted One Sheet Wonder Thanks card.

I had a great Facebook Live yesterday.  I demonstrated a fun technique.  This time I showed how to use scraps of designer series paper to make the Mosaic Tiled card.  My next Facebook Live is Thursday, May 21st at 7:30 pm EST.  Mark your calendars and join us using the link below.

After my Facebook Live I went to the post office.  Our post office closes from 1:00 – 2:30 so I had to wait until it was open again.  Since it rained yesterday morning Barb and I walked after I got back from the post office.  By then it was dinner time so I did not get my other task completed.  I will be working on it some more today.

I saw a twist on a One Sheet Wonder idea from a demonstrator in the United Kingdom.  I have played with this using other stamp sets but this time I put a twist on the technique.  I took my piece of card stock and cut off 1/2″ so it measured 8″ x 11″.  Next I drew lines to divide the card stock in half in the portrait position.  Then I divided the piece in half in the landscape position.  I took 1 side and then divided it into half in the landscape position.  That gave me 6 panels ~ two that were 4″ x 5″ and four that were 3″ x 4″.   Using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set I stamped my images along the lines I drew on the card stock.  The photo below shows what it looked like when I had finished the stamping.  I forgot to take the photo before I cut it up to make a card earlier so the upper right hand corner has a completed card since I had to recreate the card stock for this picture.












I decided to use one of the 3″ x 4″ panels to create my card for today.  I mounted this panel onto a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Blackberry Bliss.  The sentiment came from the same stamp set and was stamped using Blackberry Bliss ink.  Some of the Gold metallic edge ribbon was used to add a bow at the top.  The Mossy Meadow card front was embossed using the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to add the image layer to the center of the card front.  Here is the completed Twisted One Sheet Wonder Thanks creation.

Grapefruit Grove Friend

Hello Everyone ~ sometimes a simple card has a wow factor like this Grapefruit Grove Friend card.

I had a very productive day yesterday.  I put my card kits together I needed, worked on some of the many In Color bookmarks I needed, and packaged up several items I need to mail out today.  We are supposed to get a Tropical Storm so I wanted to get a lot done.  I still have a few projects on my to do list but now that I have these tasks crossed off I can focus on the other things.   Today I have a conference call this morning and then I have my Facebook Live ~ Lunchtime with Robbie.  After the Facebook Live I will go to the post office.  Hopefully by then most of the rain will be over.

I am continuing to play with my retiring In Colors.  I only have a few left.  I should finish up later this week.  Today’s card was clean and simple idea.  I began with a piece of Whisper White.  Using the splotch from Painted Poppies and Grapefruit Grove ink I did a 3 generation stamping on the lower third of the panel.  The daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used the ink in the lid and an aqua painter to color the flower.  The center was colored using a Daffodil Delight marker.  The sentiment comes from the Heartfelt set and was stamped using Grapefruit Grove ink.  This panel was added to a Grapefruit Grove panel.  These were then added to a Whisper White card base.  To finish the card a small Grapefruit Grove ribbon was tied using the grosgrain ribbon.  The bow was added to the flower stem using glue dots.  Here is the completed Grapefruit Grove Friend creation.

Clean and simple style has a big impact. The Grapefuit Grove Friend idea is so easy to make even though it is simple.

I love daisies and love stamping with them. This cute image makes the perfect Grapefruit Grove Friend. Check out the clean and simple card.












This card also uses that pretty daisy for another idea.  This card uses a soft blue for the perfect clean and simple card.  This idea uses a different image with some dry embossing for a very pretty card.

10 Minute Timeless Tulips

Hello Everyone ~ the retiring In Colors make a great 10 Minute Timeless Tulips creation.

My Facebook Live yesterday was not bad.  I was really nervous ~ not sure why as I have been doing Lives for quite a while.  I demonstrated a beginner card and then shared a casual and avid stamper card.  I am gearing these Facebook Lives to the beginning stamper ~ someone who wants to stamp but have limited supplies.  Think about joining us next Saturday at 10:30 am EST.

After that I worked on my videos for this week.  I had some issues but got them completed.  Today I will be working on my In Color catalog samples as I have to get them mailed out this week.  I also have some card kits to put together so I have them ready for pick and to mail out.  Hopefully I can get a lot completed this morning!

I have my 10 Minute creation today.  This one was a real challenge.  There were about 10 minutes of bloopers that I added after the banner at the end.  I can’t believe how many times it took me to stamp the main image panel.  Here is the video for the 10 Minute Timeless Tulips creation.




Here is the photo of the card so you can see that tulip that caused me so much grief!

Tulips are so pretty in the Spring. This 10 Minute Timeless Tulips idea lets you have tulips all year long and in any color you want. Don't miss the details on how to make this card.

This cute image is great for a clean and simple card. Check out the video that shows how I created the 10 Minute Timeless Tulips card.












The Timeless Tulips set is a great set to play with.  This card uses some sponged on color to get great tulip colors.  This idea uses a sponged background to highlight the tulips.  Frames are very popular right now and here is an idea for one using the tulips.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I have another project added to my to do list.  It is a never ending cycle right now!  At least most of them are card kits and I can do them fairly quickly.  Have a Sensational Sunday and  wasn’t my 10 Minute Timeless Tulips creation a clean and simple idea?

#ShopYourCraftStash Swirly Bird

Hello Stampers ~ The #ShopYourCraftStash Swirly Bird is perfect to use with the Come Sail Away dsp.

I am doing a new Facebook Live this morning.  This one will be on the Creations in Paper page rather than the group.  I will be demonstrating stamping for a beginning stamper, casual stamper, and avid stamper.  The link to the page is below.  Join us as we stamp and find out what kind of stamper you are!

Today I will be working on my videos and the final cards for the class that closes later today.  There is still time to sign up.  Click the photo below to learn all the details.












I was looking at my retired sets and ran across a set that I could use with the Come Sail Away designer series paper.  The Swirly Bird stamp set has a cute sailboat that I could pair with this great designer series paper.  I stamped the sailboat using Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, and Sahara Sand onto a scrap of Whisper White.  I used the 1 3/4″ circle punch to punch out the image.  I then used the Come Sail Away designer series paper to cut a couple of strips of the paper.  The strips were added to the right hand edge of the Balmy Blue card base.  The image circle was added to the upper right hand corner of the card front using dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Lovely Amazing You and was stamped onto Whisper White using Night of Navy. The Everyday Label punch was used to punch it out.  For a layer I used the same punch and some Night of Navy card stock to punch out the shape.  I offset the Navy and White then added dimensionals and added it to the lower left hand corner of my card front.  Here is my completed #ShopYourCraftStash Swirly Bird card.

This is a great masculine card idea. It is easy to make using some designer series paper and punches. Get the details for the #ShopYourCraftStash Swirly Bird creation.

This cute sailboat pairs really well with the Come Sail Away designer series paper. Check out the #ShopYourCraftStash Swirly Bird creation for a great masculine idea.












Here is another masculine card idea using some of that designer series paper.  This card uses another sailboat for another guy card.  This one can be made in about 10 minutes and uses a different paper from the stack.

Fast and Fabulous Beautiful Friendship

Hello Everyone ~ simple stamping was used to create my Fast and Fabulous Beautiful Friendship card.

Bijou is all clean and trimmed and spells so good.  She is so fluffy after a visit to the spa!  They do a good job and I love that they trim her with out cutting off all her hair.  I also got my bathroom cleaned.  That is the one job I don’t like.  Today I am headed to the bird store to get some seed and suet.  I will do a front door pick up so all I have to do is drive up, call them, and they will bring out my things and put it in the car.  I am hoping to have some play time today.  I would like to get some cards and videos made today for next week.  I do have a few things coming today that were on back order so it will be fun to play with them.
