Life is Great!

Years ago when I first attempted adding Facebook Lives to my business, I was a nervous wreck. My hands were shaking. My voice was quivering. UGH. I was a hot mess. I committed to continuing to do them but never thought I'd come to like doing them. And now??? I love doing Facebook Lives. Why??? For the immediate feedback and interaction I get from my views. The following video replay from my May 12th Facebook Live, shows you just how much fun my viewers and I have together. I'm warning you, though, we all seemed to be a little out of control that evening. Perhaps, I gave them too many choices, but the continuous back and forth got me (and probably) a few others giggling. I'd even say I was giddy, but hey, that's what Facebook Lives are all about - having fun while sharing and being real! I'm so grateful to all my Stampin' Peace viewers. You make my job even more fun than it already is. I look forward to much more sharing and interacting through Facebook Lives in the future.

 

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Calypso Coral Card = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Calypso Coral Embossed with Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder =  5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White/Basic Black Layer = 2 7/8" x 4 1/8"
  • Coastal Cabana Layer = 2 3/4" x 4"

 

Here's that resource for cutting card layers that I referred to in my video:  Download Card Layering Measurements - A2 size

I "bedazzled" the ball cap on this card with lots of Rhinestone Basic Jewels. My Take Your Pick tool made picking up and placing the rhinestones easy.Hats Off Bundle by Stampin' Up!

The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Matte Black Dots are wonderful embellishments for the following card being that a Basic Black card stock layer was was used instead of the Basic White layer.

I chose to use the card above with Basic Black card stock layer and black embellishments as my swap card for the Maui Incentive Trip. The colors were perfect for this amazing tropical getaway.

Butterfly Brilliance Stamparatus Style

Sunny, hot summer days are here! I love this time of year! I like to start my summer days drinking coffee on my front porch enjoying the fresh air and pretty flowers. Some days, I'm lucky enough to have a few butterflies to greet me. With the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, you can make and send bright, beautiful butterfly cards to your friends and family. In this Facebook Live video replay, you'll see me demonstrate how to make 6 Butterfly Brilliance cards quickly and easily with my Stamparatus. I'll give you some tips for using the Stamparatus to make your card making experience better. If you don't own the Stamparatus, our amazing stamping platform, this video will show you one of many ways that this amazing tool can be a beneficial addition to your craft room.


Butterfly Brilliance Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!

Color the butterflies with Stampin' Blends in your choice of colors. I used Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, and So Saffron to color mine.

The Vellum Card Stock circle creates a focal point for the stamped and die cut butterflies. I used the 3rd largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies.

Here for You Now and Always

So often we are looking for cards of support and encouragement. I love the 2 coordinating sentiments in the Color & Contour Stamp Set - Here for you now ... and in better days ahead. I can think of so many reasons to send this card to various people. People going through an illness or loss or caring for a family member or friend who is ill. People going through separation and divorce. Loss of job. Loss of loved ones. Struggles with depression or anxiety. No matter the reason, I do think this card with this sentiment will bring comfort and smiles.

To help you send love, support, and encouragement, I've prepared a Free Project Sheet for you for my Free Friday Download.

Happy Birthday from Minnie Mouse

Punch Art is so fun. I'm always in awe of those crafters who can look at a punch and see something completely different than the obvious. Think of the Tulip Punch as the head of a reindeer with antlers from the Sprig Punch. This is just 1 very simple example of Punch Art. Many Punch Artist work is very elaborate with them thinking WAY out of the box with their ordinary shape punches. I'm not in that league, but am certainly intrigued and learning to look at my punches differently.

Tulip Builder Punch & Sprig Punch by Stampin' Up!

Here is another simple but Oh, So Cute, example of Punch Art. You can use circle punches and dies to create Mickey and Minnie silhouettes. Add a die cut bow tie from the Suit & Tie Dies and you have Minnie Mouse's bow!

This is one punch art we ALL can do and is sure to bring smiles to Disney fans from 1 to 101. Click on the following link to download a Free Project Sheet to make this card. Download Project Sheet - Minnie Mouse Birthday Card

MORE Sparkling Ombre Gift Card Holders

Did you see my May 13th post? I shared a video demonstration of me making a couple of gift card holders featuring the blue Ombre Specialty Paper. If you haven't seen the video, click here to view it now.

I created a couple more Gift Card Holders also using the Ombre Specialty Paper. I wanted these to be more feminine than the ones I showed you in my May 13th blog post, so I added components of our very popular Pansy Petals Suite. I love these and can't wait to gift them to some special ladies!

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Cut Ombre Specialty Paper 5 1/2" x 12"
  • Score at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2" on long side. FYI...the first score line will mark you from bottom flap. I put my paper on the scoring tool with the dark ombre end to the left and the light ombre end to the right.

Easiest way to use Gilded Leafing

Gilded Leafing can add a dramatic effect to your cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. There are several different ways to use it from using it with Heat & Stick Powder and Heat Tool to a variety of adhesives. This card shows one of the simplest ways to use Gilded Leafing as an accent or embellishment. Simply lay a strip of Tear & Tape onto card stock where you want to add Gilded Leafing. Remove backing and press down into Gilded Leafing. Remove excess with small brush, sponge, or your finger tip.

To make this card, be sure to download my Free Project Sheet.

Art Gallery Stamp Set & Gilded Leafing by Stampin' Up!

TIP: Gilded Leafing is VERY light & airy. I HIGHLY suggest that you pour the Gilded Leafing from its original jar into a larger plastic container with a lid. The container should be large enough to press your card stock down into.
