Sweet Ice Cream Birthday

Hey Stampers!

Happy SALE a-bration and almost the end of January!  I can’t believe it is already the second half of the month!

Today I am sharing a video I created using the Ice Cream Corner Suite from the current January to June Catalog.  I just love this entire suite and I can’t get enough of the colors that are used in it!  I bought this set mainly because it reminded me of my grand-daughter, Stella.  She LOVES ice-cream!  But what kid doesn’t?  Heck!  What adult doesn’t?  Chocolate ice cream is my favorite!

I struggled with this video today.  I had to start and stop a few times, and then when I was putting it all together, I realized I deleted a part that included adding the ribbon to the card.  Today was just one of those days!

If you notice in the showcase at the bottom of this post, there are a few ways you can qualify for a FREE SALE a-bration item if you make a purchase today.  If you get the entire Ice Cream Corner Suite Collection, you will get everything you need to make this card except for the note cards and you will qualify.  Or, if you purchase the mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine you will qualify for an item.  OR… if you purchase both, you qualify for TWO items or ONE Level 2 item in the SALE a-bration catalog.  🙂

At any rate, enjoy the video and have a great day!  Until next time…

Happy Stamping!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dandelion Shadow Box Card (also Blossoms in Bloom)

Hi Stampers!

Hope you are all doing well and staying healthy!  There is nothing new here to report other than the gym has opened back up and I went there four times since last week.  I wonder everyday I set foot in there if I am doing the right thing by going.  I don’t want to catch any of this virus stuff!  They are running at I think less than 1/2 capacity.  We have to make a reservation for any class we want to attend and can only make it up to 48 hours in advance.  We are also only allowed 1 hour per visit per day.

My husband and I went out to eat for the first time since February last Friday.  We went to a restaurant where we could eat outside on purpose.  There was definitely MORE than 6 feet of space between the tables, so I felt very safe.  Each time the waitress came to the table we wore our masks.  Trying to be safe and still enjoy life a little.

I’ve been a stamping fool lately.  There isn’t much else to do other than clean and if you put cleaning and stamping in front of me, stamping will win every time. 🙂

 

As I mention in the video, I started out wanting to make a shadow box card. My initial thought was to use the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and Many Layered Blossoms dies, but I ended up creating a shadow box card out of one of my monthly club cards.  For the card I am featuring today,  I used the Sweet Silhouettes Dies, Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder along with a sentiment and image from Dandelion Wishes stamp set. I love dandelions and I think the embossing folder and stamp set go very well together.   I will give you the dimensions of the card stock pieces and colors used for the two initial cards I was going to make.  The video will give you all the information you will need for the Dandelion Shadow Box card.  The first supply list at the end of the post contains all the things you will need to create the Dandelion card.  The second supply list will be preceded by the card stock dimensions for the other two cards.

If you watch the video, you will notice I didn’t decorate the inside front cover of the card.  This is a photo of how I decided to quickly cover up that seam the card base creates.

Love & Affection

It has been awhile since I posted last because June has been a busy month.  The first two weeks were spent on vacation while my sister and brother-in-law visited from Ohio.  We spent the better part of the two weeks traveling with them.  We drove to both Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks in Utah, Las Vegas, Nevada, and finally Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.  While in Southern Colorado we also visited Four Corners Monument.  It is part of the Navajo Nation’s Parks and Recreation and the only place in the United States where four states, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado meet at one point.

Unfortunately vacation went by way too quickly and before I knew it, they were back on an airplane headed home.  It was tons of fun and I am looking forward to the next time we are together.  I’ve been trying to think of when I can get back there and an excuse for going, but decided I don’t need an excuse other than I want to visit my family.  Maybe I will make a trip this fall before bad weather sets in.  My mom is scheduled to visit in July and I am really looking forward to that.

I’ve got another video for you today along with a tutorial you can download and print, . I seem to remember promising my up line at On Stage that I would do a video each month so I am getting this in just in time. 🙂  In case you haven’t noticed, I love to make 3-D things.  Today’s card is a small one that fits inside a box.  I used the Love & Affection stamp set along with ALL of the new In Colors which I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.  This card is one we made at this month’s club.  We didn’t do the box.

Bold Butterfly & Kinda Eclectic…First Video Tutorial

Hello, Stampers,

Today I am sharing my first video tutorial EVER!  I am both excited and nervous all at the same time.  For my first try, it didn’t turn out so bad, but I realize there is room for improvement.  I only plan on getting better from here.

The creation I am sharing is a window box and 4″ x 4″ cards and envelopes I made using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.   As I mention in the tutorial, the cards are too small for the regular mail, but the entire set will make a great gift for someone, and they can use the cards as gift tags.
