Feels Like Frost with Night of Navy

Good Morning Stampers ~ today’s share is a Feels Like Frost with Night of Navy.

It is Thursday morning and I am sitting here writing posts and listening to the news.  There have been numerous tornadoes south of me and the storm hasn’t even gotten here yet.  Barb came up with a plan in case we had to leave quickly.  We both packed a bag and I packed stuff for Bijou.  If we have to get out of here, Bijou and I are going with them in Doug’s truck.  I am hoping that I did not have to leave.  In the mean time I am working on posts so that I have them set up through Tuesday.

For today’s card I chose to use the navy colored piece.  The image pairs well with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.  I chose the single dandelion and inked it up using Night of Navy ink.  I did mask off some of the seeds on the far side of the image as I wanted a smaller image.  I stamped it onto a scrap of Whisper White.  I pulled out the Colorful Seasons stamp set and using my marker I inked up just the “smile” from the sentiment and stamped it in the lower right hand corner.  I cut the panel down and then mounted it onto a piece of Silver foil paper.  Next I used a strip of Whisper White and the Lace embossing folder and embossed it.  This strip was attached to the upper portion of a Seaside Spray panel that measured 4″ x 5 1/4″.  A 2″ strip of the Feels Like Frost dsp was cut and then attached along the left hand side of the Seaside Spray panel.  Silver metallic ribbon was added to the lower portion of the panel using Tear & Tape.  The panel was then attached to a Night of Navy card base.  To finish the card, the image panel was added to the lower right hand corner using dimensionals.  Here is the completed Feels Like Frost with Night of Navy creation.

I love all the colors in the Feels Like Frost designer series paper. Here is an idea using Feels Like Frost with Night of Navy. Get the details by clicking the picture.

Feels Like Frost Happy Birthday

Hello Stampers ~ did you know you can use the Feels Like Frost designer series paper to make a Feels Like Frost Happy Birthday card?

It is Thursday afternoon and I am working on my posts to schedule them.  I have 2 more posts to do and then I will have all my posts ready to publish through Tuesday.  I wanted to have the posts done so that if I loose electricity you will still have cards to look at.  I am expecting to loose electricity for at least a few hours but hopefully not much more than that.

For my 10 Minute Creation series I wanted to use the Feels Like Frost designer series paper to make a birthday card.  This was a quick card and could easily be made in a limited amount of time.  Here is the video show how I created the Feels Like Frost Happy Birthday card.

 

 

 

Isn’t that a great card?  It is a perfect feminine birthday card.  Here is the photo so you can see what it looks like.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  One more post to go!  Will be working on it in between the Tornado warnings!  You can easily use this layout with any designer series paper you have.  Have a Sensational Sunday and what designer series paper would you use to C.A.S.E. my Feels Like Frost Happy Birthday creation?

 

 

Why did I start #ShopYourCraftStash?

I am going to be a trailblazer and start a hashtag – #ShopYourCraftStash!

If you are like me you already have a lot of products – a craft stash – and also have a budget that you’ve established for your papercrafting pursuits.  Knowing that it would not be a good idea to order whatever I see whenever I see it, I want to use what I have with minimal investment on new items other than those things that are on trend, totally new to the market or replace items that I have used up.

And – honestly – many “new” products are throwbacks from previous versions. To me it just does not make sense to order a stamp set that contains images I already have.  Yes, some of the new styles of things are totally adorable or a better size or may contain other images I don’t have. If that’s the case – I get it! But I am not one to buy new just because it IS new.

Thus was born the #ShopYourCraftStash series!  I thought it would be a great idea to share how to use product I already own with a few select new products.  That means I am making more informed decisions as I now look at new product and think what do I already own that I could pair with it that is new and will give a fresh look to an old favorite.  Since I was already doing this personally, and since I am known for being a sensible, not salesy, not a Crafting Enabler I thought you could also benefit from this idea.

I actually tested this concept with a small group and they went NUTS! They LOVED #ShopYourCraftStash projects and loved that I was able to show them how to get their “I love new stuff” fix but do so with an eye toward spending SMARTLY and getting even more value out of their previous investments. Feedback was that they all felt more joy and less guilt in their crafting, felt a greater confidence in buying new things and knowing HOW they would be using them and loving the idea that they could use “old” things and still create new and fresh and fun projects.

So watch for my projects branded with my new #ShopYourCraftStash hashtag and feel free to share your OWN projects using the same hashtag so we can go and tell you how awesome you are!

Now that you understand my new series how about a fun card for it.  For my #ShopYourCraftStash today I am again using a piece of the Feels Like Frost designer series paper.  The pattern I chose reminded me of the spray from Jar of Love.  I pulled it out and began creating.  The paper I chose to use paired well with Highland Heather so that is the one I used.  I cut a panel of the paper and mounted it onto a piece of Highland Heather card stock.  The dsp had bokeh dots on it so I pulled out the Beauty Abounds stamp set and added some to the Whisper White card base staying to the top as the designer series paper will be on the bottom.  The dsp panel was attached to the bottom of the card front.  On scrap paper I used Highland Heather ink to stamp the sentiment and the image.  The image also has a second and third generation stamps to add some interest to the background to mimic the dsp.  For the image I use a 2 1/4″ circle punch to punch it out.  It was mounted onto a 2 1/2″ circle of Highland Heather.  This element was then added to the center of the card front using dimensionals.  the sentiment was punched out using a 1″ circle punch and mounted onto a 1 1/4″ circle punch.  It was added to the upper left hand corner of the card front using dimensionals.  Here is the completed creation.

Stampin’ Up Feels Like Frost Snowflakes

Hello Everyone ~ I am sharing a Stampin’ Up Feels Like Frost Snowflakes card today.

As you read this I am in the middle of the hurricane.  It is supposed to be over by the end of today.  I don’t know if I have electricity or not as I wrote this and scheduled it on Wednesday evening.  If I do not have electricity I will be playing in my studio and reading the book that has to be done by Monday evening.  I have plenty of water and I also have a grill in case I need to heat anything up.  I am hoping we do not get it as bad as they say it might be.

I have a Fast & Fabulous idea for you today.  This one uses another pattern from the Feels Like Frost designer series paper.  This one had snowflakes in the pattern so I went with with the snowflake theme using the Seasonal Layers dies.  Here is the video for my Stampin’ Up Feels Like Frost Snowflakes creation.

 

 

 

This is a really pretty card and I love the silver metallic accents.  Here is a photo for the card so you can see all the pretty silver snowflakes.

Snowflake cards are fun to make. Silver makes them extra pretty. Check out this Stampin' Up Feels Like Frost Snowflakes creation by clicking through.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.  The weather is supposed to be gorgeous on Saturday and Sunday so I may be picking up branches and hauling them to the road to be picked up.  I am hoping there will not be too much damage.  Have a Fabulous Friday and do you have a different stamp set you can use for the Stampin’ Up Feels Like Frost Snowflakes?

 

 

 

Stampin’ Up Christmas Feels Like Frost

Hello Stampers ~ How about a Stampin’ Up Christmas Feels Like Frost card idea?

Well I managed to get cards and videos done for the blog through next Tuesday.  I will be working today to get the posts scheduled in case we loose electricity which they are pretty sure will happen.  I also got all my porch furniture in the garage as well as my grill.  The last thing I brought in was my wreath, bird feeders, and flower.  Now there is nothing outside to blow around if the winds are strong.  I am still monitoring the weather but they are saying this storm will not be as bad as last year’s storm.  Today is the last day I can decide if I am staying or leaving.  The weather forecast this morning will be the deciding factor.

I thought today I would use one of the patterns from the Feels Like Frost designer series paper to create a Christmas Card.  Since I don’t have any current Christmas stamp sets I decided to #ShopYourCraftStash and use a retired one.  One of the papers in the Feels Like Frost designer series paper stacks has a silver pattern that looks like pine needles.  I used the Pretty Pines dies to cut out some pine sprigs using Shaded Spruce.  I also cut out an Early Espresso branch and a Cherry Cobbler sprig.  To put my card together I used a strip of the patterned paper and mounted it onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler.  This layered strip was added to the center of the card.  Using glue dots the die cuts were layered and attached to the card front.  To finish off the layered elements a Cherry Cobbler bow was cut out and added on top.  This sprig element was added to the card front on the left hand side.  For my sentiment I wanted one that was stacked and the one in the stamp set was a line.  Using a post-it-note, the last 2 words were masked off and the first word was inked up.  I removed the post-it-note and stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White.  I repeated the masking technique to ink up the last 2 words of the sentiment and stamp them below the already stamped first word.  The 1 1/2″ circle punch was used to punch out the sentiment.  A Shaded Spruce circle was punched using the 1 3/4″ circle punch and the 2 circles were layered.  Dimensionals were used to attach the sentiment layers.  Here is my completed Stampin’ Up Christmas Feels Like Frost creation.

I love making Christmas Cards. The Feels Like Frost designer series paper has some great patterns to use for Christmas Cards. Check out this Stampin' Up Christmas Feels Like Frost idea by clicking the photo.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  It has been very quiet here the past few days as everyone gets ready for the storm.  They closed the schools so they could be used for shelters.  I know now what they mean be the calm before the storm as trees are still and no birds are flying about.  Have a Great Day and did you like my Stampin’ Up Christmas Feels Like Frost idea?
