Holiday Catalog 2015 Sneak Peek



Here is a sneak peep of a new Thinlit that is coming Sept 1st.
in the new Holiday Catalog 2015
It's called Hearth & Home thinlits Die


I knew when I saw it I had to have it.
I made my card as if you we inside looking outside.
With wall paper and wainscoting for the inside of the house.
Look closely and you can see the molding and wainscoting.
It was a bit hard to photograph the white card stock here.
And brick for the outside of the house with a flower box on the inside of the card.
With a pretty pumpkin scene. 



The spider is stamped on a window sheet so in real life 
it looks like a window


The Stamp set for all the cute outdoor scenes 
is called Happy Scenes.

This was a fun card to make


Here is the new thinlit that makes the window 
and shelf or window box

Paper Pumpkin July 2015




I have been receiving the monthly My Paper Pumpkin kit 
for almost two years.
And I have to say I look forward to it every month,
This month was no exception. 

So cute.
But I always try to create other card styles with the supplies that come 
in the kit and or the stamp sets that come in the kit.
Right below is the card how it was intended to look according to the directions.  


Now this was some cards I came up with using the cute stamp set that comes in the months kit..


                                                    Paper Pieced coffee and tea cups.
I stamped the coffee/tea cup on to several pieces of DSP and  
just cut them out and created a stack of cups.
This card I used the new DSP Pretty Petals.



Here's the inside

 My tip for this techniques use Designer Series Paper (DSP) 
with small print. 


 Below I used my favorite retired DSP

Here's the inside of this card.



 Here's my favorite one. 
a coffee cup shelf.
I used the Cherry on Top DSP here.
And also the greeting on the front is from 
the stamp set Cottage Greeting

Here's the inside
Below I have the link to all the supplies I used 
for these cards

Love those layers


Pretty Petals DSP is what I used on all these cards.
This Designer Series Paper is beautiful.
It is a 6" x 6" stack and WOW! It's beautiful. 
Oh I said that. Ha Ha. 
Take a look at the five cards below I created using the DSP.
Four of them are the same design but so different. 

This is a long post so get some coffee and Enjoy.
:) No it's not that long...

I also used the new stamp set called "Tin of Cards"
You might over look this set but take a look what I did with the 
this set on the label.
LOVE LOVE this set.


Here's the inside

Love the way this pretty Pacific Point one turned out. 
The little plus signs are also for the same stamp set.



Inside

And anyone that knows me I love Calypso Coral.
This card is for my Mom just because. 




You gotta love the new "Envelope Paper" 
What you didn't know we had special Envelope paper? 
Well we do now and it comes in the 2015-2017 In Colors 
AND my personal fav Neutrals. 
Whisper White, Very Vanilla, and Kraft. 
This envelope below I made from the Mint Macaron paper to match my card.



Inside is special too. 
I used the doodle stamp in the "Tin of Cards" set.


Here's a bold color one.



Inside 


And there are many more beautiful papers in this DSP stack.
What do you think? 
Hope you enjoyed my cards.
Below are the items I used.

Flowers for Mom


Mother's Day Flowers for Mom

I chose to purchase silk flowers for my Mother this year.
I think it was the best choice because she wouldn't need to remember
to water them and they would always stay pretty.   
Our Mother is in an assisted living home for memory loss so I know she
would not remember to water a real plant. 
I purchased this silk plant at our local Micheal's Craft store.
But of coarse I had to add some Stampin Up Flair to it.
So I cut some Butterfly Thinlits from Daffodil Delight and Pretty in Pink (R)
card stock and the largest butterfly from Dazzling Diamonds card stock.
Hot glued two matching butterfly's together with a bamboo skewer between.
And stuck the pointed end in the foam in the pot. 
That is just what her plant needed 




Have a wonderful Mother's Day!



Painted Petals



Hi There!

Here is a card I made using the Painted Petals Stamp Set
and the Butterfly thinlits. 
Lovely card yes,  I love it. 
But as you saw in my previous post I like to doodle. 
Well I thought what if I doodled over the Painted Petals 
using the  Project life Journal Pen

Hmm....



 Here is the inside. 
Keep scrolling 


Check this out! 
Doesn't the doodling make the flowers just pop?


Mellon Mambo

Just a quick tip:  I just drew in the butterfly antenna
with the Project life Journal Pen







Here is my Mother's card for Mothers Day.

I didn't doodle on the Elegant Eggplant because I didn't think 
the black ink would show up enough.

The Butterfly Thinlet was run through the big shot half way on each
side of the body of the butterfly. 
You can see how to do this on Cindee's website HERE

Here is another card just stamping the Painted Peddles 
and doodling on them again.




The supplies I used are here below. 

Hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day!
