Lily Pad Impressions

Friday, February 21, 2020
This pretty card is like playing with a puzzle!
The Designer Paper is part of the FREE Sale a Bration products called Lily Pad Impressions (#152284).
So much fun to put this together. I did use some retired sticky sheets to make it easier, but a dab of Tombo Multipurpose Glue (#110755) would work fine as well.
Tip: when adding the deeply embossed Corrugated Embossed  (#151811) piece like to use some Tear 'n Tape  (#138895) to stick it down so as not to smash my embossed piece 
Dies: Lily Pad Dies (#152315) are FREE with a $100.00 purchase, Bouquet Bunch Dies (#143659)
Stamp Set for the tiny little HELLO is from Beautiful Bouquet (#143666)
Card Inspired by: Su Mohr 
The darling little flower you see on the side is actually hand carved soap from Thailand. Our friends (who are also cousins) have a son and daughter-in-law living in Thailand as missionaries and they brought this back to us after they went there to visit them.

Poppy Moments Dies

Thursday, February 20, 2020
Such a pretty card using some Vellum
Did you know that Stampin' Up! sells colored Vellum Card Stock?
Perennial Essence Vellum (#149101) comes in 3 colors: Old Olive, So Saffron and Petal Pink, but when you don't have the color you need all you need to do is use the clear Vellum Card Stock (#101856) and color it with a sponge (#141337) and Ink. In this case we used Blackberry Bliss  (#147092). 
I did find that if I wanted to spritz the card with Champagne Shimmer (#147074) it was best to do it before you added the flowers, as it made the colors run a bit.
Stamp Set: Witty-cisms (#151686)
Card Stock: Whisper White Thick (#140272), Whisper White (#100730), Mossy Meadow (#133676), Blackberry Bliss (133675)
Dies: Poppy Moments (#151594), Stitched Rectangles (#148551)

Label Me Bold FREE Tutorial

Monday, February 17, 2020
I have mentioned before that I am in a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Group called Tutorial Medley
This was my card submission for the month of February using the LABEL ME BOLD Stamp Set and the SPECIAL SOMEONE Stamp Set.
I have a FREE TUTORIAL for you all, with step by step instructions on how to make this card. 

LABEL ME BOLD
(With Special Someone)
All images © 1990-2020 Stampin’ Up! ®


·      The Label Me Bold Stamp Set is one that you need to use along with your other stamp sets. I love the solid background of this type of stamp and seems to be quite the “thing” lately.
·      Stamps: Label Me Bold #151631, Special Someone #151643
·      Card Stock: Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes #131527, Whisper White #100730
·      Ink: Memento Black #132708, Early Espresso #147114, Crumb Cake #147116, Smoky Slate #147113, Real Red #147084, Balmy Blue #147105, Granny Apple Green #147095
·      Tools & Accessories: Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals #144108, Tombo Multipurpose glue #110755

Measurements: 
·      Whisper White Card Stock: 4-3/4” x 3-1/4”, Extra Whisper White Card Stock to stamp the squirrel, mouse, balloon and “for you” greeting.

Instructions:
1.    Using Granny Apple Green ink stamp the grassy area by stamping off 2 to 3 times depending on how dark you want it and how juicy your ink pad is. Then I turned it around and stamped over the same area – stamping off 2 to 3 times.
2.    Using Granny Apple Green ink stamp the tiny dots stamp over top of that grassy area – stamping off only once.
3.    Using Balmy Blue ink stamp the sky – stamping off once.
4.    Stamp the Squirrel in Early Espresso and then using the step 2 stamp for the squirrel stamp it to fill in with crumb cake. I stamped off once.
5.    Stamp 2 more squirrels on scrap Whisper White. Cut one out using paper snips or if you purchased the new Special Day dies that are available February 4-March 31, 2020. #153587. The second squirrel, cut out only the arm and hand.
6.    Stamp the little mouse using Memento Black and fill in with the step 2 stamp with Smoky Slate.
7.    Stamp a second mouse the same way onto scrap paper and cut out. When I fussy cut mine I did not cut out the feet and tail. I you purchase the Special Day Dies it will cut them all out.
8.    Stamp the “for you” using Real Red Ink onto scrap Whisper White and hand cut.
9.    Stamp the balloon string so it is attached to the squirrel’s hand, stamp the heart balloon at the end of the string. Fill in with the step 2 of the heart balloon with Real Red Ink. Stamp a second balloon the same way and hand cut (or use the Special Day Dies)
10. Assemble by adding Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the squirrel, mouse and balloon. Add the “for you” with a Mini Dimensional and a dab of glue where it attaches to the squirrel. Now using a dab of glue add the single arm you cut out so it looks like he is holding the sign.
11. Stamp a squirrel the same way as before onto the front of your envelope.
12. Your card is complete!

Sweet Friend

Sunday, February 16, 2020
I am loving the HONEY BEE Stamp Set and everything that goes with it!
Stampin' Up! sure had their "thumb on the pulse" of this entire theme.
This card was inspired by my friend Julie Gilson
They even have coordinating Designer Paper during Sale a Bration that you can get for FREE. It was such a big hit that they are currently out of stock. However they should be getting more in by thinned of the month,
One of my favorite prints is the Black and white stripe.
Check out what I found at the Office Supply Store:
 I decided I would give it a make-over using the Honey Bee stamps and dies.
 And then I went to the grocery store and found more bee-themed products
Placemats and towels - just the little make-over that my kitchen required for this spring.
