I have a new video for you this month along with a new look on my blog. Hope you like both.
The video is on a piece of wall art I CASED and created using the Half Full Stamp Set and the STAMPARATUS! Wooo Hooo! I finally got mine, and when I did I realized it would be perfect to use on this project. The Half Full Stamp Set is a carry over from last year’s Holiday Catalog. The video is a little long, but it is definitely worth the time. I hope you enjoy making this project as much as I did.
Two items that are not listed in the supply list at the end of this post is a 5 x 7 shadow box frame in black and some washi tape to tack down the edges of your card stock and your letters dies. Now on the frame, as I show you in the video, you do not need a shadow box frame. You can use a less expensive $3.00 5 x 7 photo frame if you choose. Your end product will be just as nice.
Just a reminder that SALE-A-BRATON ends on the last day of this month so if there is anything you have been wanting, but you have been putting of purchasing, now is the time.
Sorry about the glare and shadows in the following photos.
As I mention in my first video, it has been way too long! June and July seemed to fly by. We left for vacation in June right after the new Annual Catalog went live and July was spent catching up and anticipating the birth of my granddaughter. My daughter is pregnant due to give birth to baby Stella in September. I can barely contain my excitement! Yes, I have three other grandchildren through marriage, a 6-year-old and almost 2-year-old grandsons and a 6-year-old grand-daughter. This one is a little different. It is MY baby girl having her OWN baby girl and making me a REAL Nonna! (Italian for Grandma). I needed to make some shower favors and complete a few crochet projects I had started for her. That is all done now. Now we just wait…..:)
As I also mention in the video, I was inspired by July’s Paper Pumpkin to create this gift bag and cards. I think I call it a box in the videos, but it is really a bag. For July’s Paper Pumpkin, I created two different sizes of bags; one for the note cards and one for the 5-1/2 x 4-1/4.
So here are the videos. I hope you enjoy them. Before you watch, you need to know that I mis-called the color of navy card stock in the videos. I said I used Not Quite Navy (a retired Stampin’ Up! color) when in fact I used Night of Navy. Sorry. 🙂 If you have any questions, please let me know.
Hope you enjoyed your visit today! Until next time…
It is a cold and cloudy day today here in Colorado. A good day to stamp! So I thought I’d share a little of what I’ve been working on with you.
This card is made with a Sale-A-Bration set, and as far as I am concerned, it is a must have! Hey Chick is such a cute set. Being an avid chicken collector (I collect vintage and antique roosters), I was sure to get this set first.
I like this chicken because it sort of looks like my hair when I get out of bed in the morning. It is usually standing straight up on the left side, and this guys hair reminded me of…me! LOL! The only difference is my hair isn’t blue and my body isn’t yellow and I don’t have tail feathers. My husband would tell you otherwise because says I am always getting my tail feathers in a ruffle. 🙂
Here is a graphic of the other stamps in the set.
It is yours free with any $50.00 purchase from my online store. Or you can get one of the following other items.
When I made this card, I used a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Soft Suede card stock for the base. The designer series paper is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. The striped piece measures 2 1/2″ x 5 ” and the dotted piece is 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. The top piece of Soft Suede card stock measures 2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and the Whisper White piece upon which I stamped measure 2″ x 3″. I added a piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ to the inside so that I could write a note of thanks in there for a special lady.
I hope you enjoyed your visit here today. It was short and I hope sweet! Until next time
Thought I’d take a moment or two away from housework and spend a little time here today! I’ve been buys getting ready for my monthly Cards & Coffee both in my stamp room and otherwise. I have also been participating in my upline’s January challenge. Every week for the past few weeks, she has been challenging us to create cards that meet specific requirements. It has been fun to participate and to see my team members’ entries. All I can say is I belong to a very creative team!
I never thought I’d love a Valentine set as much as I love this one. Sealed with Love stamp set is so cute! And the Love Notes Framelits are really cute too. Here is another Valentine card I created with both of these items for our most recent challenge, which was to use a stamp set from the current Occasions Catalog with a new embellishment.
The two new embellishments I used are the Real Red ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack and a heart from the Sending Love Embellishments. This is a simple and quick card. Not sure which of my children to send it to. I might have to make another just like it. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed your visit here today! Until next time…
