Petal Cone Heart Hanging Basket

It's Friday!  I've been busy working on the projects that will be made at my upcoming XOXO Sweetheart Stamp Camp.  Here is one of the projects that will be made.  I just recently got the Petal Cone Bigz L Die (p. 221), and I'm so glad I have it!  There are so many things that you can do with this wonderful die!  The Petal Cone it makes is pretty enough, but some very creative people out there have come up with a lot more you can make with it.

The project below is one of them.  I've seen these heart hanging baskets for awhile, and I couldn't wait to finally make one.  I also used the new P.S. I Love You set (p. 8 in Occasions Mini) & Twitterpated DSP (p. 13 in Occasions Mini).  I hope you like it!

Three Little Words...

Happy Monday, everyone!  It's Monday, so that means there's a new Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO225).  This card is a super easy one, and I'll be demonstrating it at a workshop I'm having in less than 2 weeks.  I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to make it a portrait card.  I got the color combo from a card I saw in the current Idea Book & Catalog on p. 167.  All of the hearts come from the I {Heart} Hearts set (p. 46), and the greeting comes from the Three Little Words set (p. 166).

The vanilla squares were punched out with the 1-3/8" Square Punch (p. 212), and I cut out the 1-1/2" Rose Red squares with my Paper Cutter (p. 208).  I cut out the Old Olive heart in the top left square and the Perfect Plum heart in the bottom right square with my Paper Snips (p. 208).  The Rose Red polka dot heart was stamped, and then punched out with the 1-3/8" Square Punch.  The little Rose Red "Love" heart was punched out with the Small Heart Punch (p. 210).  The Rich Razzleberry "Love" heart and the two hearts with the greeting came from the same stamp in the I {Heart} Hearts set.  I inked the hearts with Rich Razzleberry, Rose Red, & Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers, and then punched them out with the Heart to Heart Punch (p. 210).  The two small hearts were popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 206).  "Three Little Words" was inked up with Rich Razzleberry & Rose Red Stampin' Write Markers, and the "i love you" was stamped with Old Olive ink.  The greeting piece was stamped onto a 3" x 1" piece of Very Vanilla card stock, and the Rose Red mat is 3-1/8" x 1-1/8".  I embossed the 4" x 5-1/4" Perfect Plum card stock with the Framed Tulips Impressions Folder (p. 218), and then attached to the Old Olive card base.  I then added the other pieces inside the tulip frame.

My First Stacked Card

Happy Thursday, everyone!  Only one more work day!  I'm lucky enough to have my weekend starting now.  I'm getting ready to scrapbook and make cards with some very good friends this afternoon through Saturday afternoon.  It's an annual 48 Hour Stampin' & Scrappin Retreat that my church has every year.  It's so much fun.  I can't wait to leave in about an hour!

Today's card is my first Stacked Card.  It's also called a Telescoping Card.  I learned how to make one on Joan Ervin's Blog.  The main stamp set I used is P.S. I Love You (p. 8), and it's in the Occasions Mini. The "Love" on the small heart layer is from an upcoming Sale-A-Bration set, Outlined Occasions.  This card will also be one of the cards made at my XOXO Sweetheart Stamp Camp.  You can find out more about this camp on my EVENTS CALENDAR.

Best Wishes Mojo

Today's card uses this week's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO224).  I made this card yesterday when it was pretty dreary outside.  I needed to use some Spring colors to brighten things up!  The stamp set I used is from the Occasions Mini, and it's called Bordering on Romance (p. 11).  I used a new technique called Cross the Border, and you can see it on the flower piece.  My technique stamp club will be learning this technique and making this card next week.  I used two new dies that are in the Occasions Mini as well.  The Pear Pizzazz border was made with the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies (p. 7).  I love how the flower border stamp in this stamp set matches up perfectly with this die.  The flower piece and the frame around it were cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits dies (p. 6).  I attached the frame onto the flower piece with SNAIL Adhesive (p. 206 in big catty), and then attached the whole thing to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 206 in big catty).  If you can believe it, there are two more Occasions Mini items!  I told you this mini had a lot of wonderful things in it!  The ribbon is the new Baja Breeze 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon (p. 12), and the pearl is from the Large Pearl Basic Jewels pack (p. 26).

I also used two Impressions Folders on this card that are in the big catalog.  I used the Square Lattice Impressions Folder (p. 218) on the Baja Breeze strip, and I used the Finial Press Impressions Folder (p. 219) on the Wisteria Wonder piece.  I really like adding texture to my projects to make them extra special.  I made the flag bottom on the Baja Breeze strip with a corner of the 1-1/4" Square Punch (p. 212).  The saying comes from the Petite Pairs set (p. 164), and was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch (p. 209).  Do you want to know how I made it so small with such a large punch?  Patty Bennett has great video tutorial on how to do it, and you can find it HERE.  I made the little crochet accent with a 3" piece of Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim (p. 194).  I folded it in half to form a "V", attached it with a little SNAIL Adhesive to the right of the flower piece's frame, trimmed the ends, and then added the Large pearl.

Another Fresh Vintage Card

Happy Friday, everyone!  I have another Fresh Vintage Sale-A-Bration (SAB) card to show you.  I participated in two Splitcoaststampers (SCS) challenges with this card.  The color combo challenge (CC357) and the card sketch challenge (SC367).  Besides using an upcoming Sale-A-Bration set, I also used some new Occasions Mini items.  I used Twitterpated DSP (p. 13), Baja Breeze 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon (p. 12), Twitterpated Designer Buttons (p. 12), Large Pearl Basic Jewels (p. 26), & Adorning Accents Impressions Embossing Folders (p. 7).

I made the flower with the Boho Blossoms Punch (p. 210).  I punched the three flowers in the punch out of Blushing Bride card stock.  I then roughed the card stock up and curled the edges up on each flower.  I then sponged each one with Riding Hood Red Classic ink.  I layered each one together and attached each layer with a Mini Glue Dot (p. 206).  I then punched out the largest flower in the punch out of Riding Hood Red card stock.  I roughed it up, too, and then added it to the bottom of the pink flower.  I then attached one of the Large pearls in the new Large Pearls Basic Jewels pack to the center of the flower.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I did sponge around the stamped floral image with Blushing Bride ink.  I also added small pearls from the Basic Pearls Jewels (p. 198) to the stamped floral image as well.  The greeting came from the Fundamental Phrases set (p. 163).  The heart border on the Baja Breeze card stock strip was made with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch (p. 210).

Occasions Mini Set - Mouthwatering

Today's card is a simple and quick one to make.  I used the new stamp set, Mouthwatering (p. 34) in the Occasions Mini.   I also used two other Occasions Mini items...Sweet Shop Specialty DSP (p. 33) and Cherry Scented Emboss Powder (p.  35).  It was fun to make the cherries smell like cherries.  I made this card a couple weeks ago for a swap I was in, and it still smells like cherries!  I like the shiny effect the emboss powder gives the cherries, too.  The greeting I used was Petite Pairs (p. 164 in big catty).  I just got this set a few weeks ago, and I've already used it a lot!

How did I emboss the cherries when there isn't a Calypso Coral Craft Pad or emboss powder?  I first inked up the cherries with Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral markers, and then stamped it onto Whisper White card stock.  I then brushed the VersaMarker (p. 203 in big catty) completely over the two cherries.  Then, I added the Cherry Scented EP and heat embossed it.  I wouldn't have done this if the stamp had been more intricate, but the cherries are big and easy to cover.  The other stamps in the set, the ice cream cone, watermelon slice, and popsicle, are easy to do, too.  The other two scented emboss powders are Vanilla & Melon...perfect for the other stamps.  The cherry circle layer was made with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch (p. 212 in big catty), and the Wisteria Wonder circle was made with the Circle Scissors Plus (p. 208) and measures 2-3/4".

Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek

Happy Monday, everyone!  We're having beautiful weather today in Central Indiana!  Right now, it's 50 degrees and sunny.  This sure isn't normal for January, but I'll take it!

Today's picture uses the new Mojo Monday sketch that came out this morning (MOJO223).  It's another wonderful sketch.  The stamp set, designer paper, ribbon, and brads that I used are a few of the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) items that will be available beginning January 24.  SAB is the biggest annual sale that Stampin' Up! has, and everyone loves it.  You earn a SAB item from the brochure for free with every $50 (before shipping & tax) you spend on an order.

I've been dying to use some of my new SAB stuff, and this sketch worked out perfect for this set.  It's called Fresh Vintage, and I just love it!  It's my favorite SAB set of the ones being offered.  It's hard to see it in the picture, but the stamped border along the bottom part of the card is also from this stamp set.  The big Very Vanilla circle was cut out with my Circle Scissors Plus (p. 208 in the big catty). It's a 2-3/4" circle, and I bordered it with a Peach Parfait circle that was cut with my 3" Circle Originals Die (p. 220 in the big catty).  Of course, I could have made the peach circle with my Circle Scissor Plus, too.  The small circle was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 206 in the big catty). 

I'm also very much in love with the SAB designer paper.  It's so pretty and the color combo is gorgeous!  It's called Everyday Enchantment DSP.  The ribbon and brads come in a pack together, and it's called Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack.  As you can see, the ribbon and brads coordinate with the designer paper.  They really look great together, as you can see. 

I did use a new Occasions Mini item, too.  It's called Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies (p. 7) in the Occasions Mini), and it made the Pool Party scallop edge on the card.  I've used the other edgelit die that comes in the set before, but this is the other one.  I really like the ridges on the scallop edge.  The greeting came from the Petite Pairs set (p. 164 in the big catty).

New Set - Bordering on Romance

Introducing another new set in the Occasions Mini, Bordering on Romance (p. 11).  I CASEd this card from a lady off of SCS.  I don't know her name, but her SCS name is inkpad.  You can find her card HERE.  I stamped the flowers with Basic Gray ink, and watercolored it with the ink colors listed below.  I punched out the image with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch (p. 212 in big catty).  The ornate border was made with the new Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die (p. 7) in the Occasions Mini.  I really think this doily is pretty.  The greeting comes from the Petite Pairs stamp set (p. 164 in the big catty), and it was stamped with Soft Suede ink.  This card is quick and easy to make, and it's also very pretty!

First Valentine's Day Card of the Year

A new card two days in a row...I'm on a roll!  I'm really glad to finally be able to get back into the swing of things.  Today's card is my first Valentine's Day card of 2012.  I also followed the first Mojo Monday sketch of 2012, too.  It's MOJO222.  I think it's a great sketch.

I got to use some new Occasions Mini items on this card, as well.  I had a hard time getting the picture to show the true colors I used, and this was the best I could do.  I think the card looks better in real life. 

The first Occasions Mini item I used is the P.S. I Love You stamp set (p. 8).  It's a set of 15 stamps, so there are a lot of different looks you can get with it.  It's a little hard to tell in the picture, but the chocolate on the strawberry is shiny.  I put Crystal Effects on top of the "chocolate".  I really like the look.  The heart was punched out with the Full Heart Punch (p. 210 in big catty).  The cupid and chocolate strawberry were cut out free-hand.  I also popped the chocolate-covered strawberry up with a Stampin' Dimensional (p. 206 in big catty).

The designer paper I used is the same as the card I made yesterday...Twitterpated DSP (p. 13).  I used the Adorning Accents Impressions Embossing Folders (p. 7) to make the Riding Hood Red hearts strip.  The last Occasions Mini items I used are the buttons on the card...Twitterpated Designer Buttons (p. 12).  I attached them to the card with Mini Glue Dots (p. 206 in big catty).


Stamps:  P.S. I Love You (Mini)

The Occasions Mini is Here!

It's here!  I don't know how Stampin' Up! does it, but they've outdone themselves again!  Each mini that comes out seems to get better and better.  I'm in love with just about everything!  If you would like to take a look at it, just click on the picture below.  I also have links to the catalog (Flash and pdf) and the supply lists for each project in it on my "Stampin' Up! Catalogs" Page.  Now see what I did with some of the goodies!



This is the first card that I've made using some of my new Occasions Mini stuff.  The new stamp set is called Mixed Bunch (p. 17).  Yes, it also has a coordinating punch called Blossom Punch (p. 17).  I just love that!  Just think of all of the possibilities with this stamp set & punch together!  I stamped the flower onto Baja Breeze card stock with Island Indigo ink.  I then sponged the edges of the flower with the same ink.  The flower layer underneath was stamped with another flower image in the set and Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White card stock.

Do you see any more new stuff on it?  I actually used quite a few.  I just love the new pleated ribbon.  I used the Riding Hood Red 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon (p. 12).  The beautiful designer paper is called Twitterpated (p. 13).  Now, for one of my favorite new items...the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies (p. 7) and the coordinating Adorning Accents Impressions Embossing Folders (p. 7).  I used the Edgelits Die on the bottom border of the DSP and used the Impressions Folder on the Pear Pizzazz layer underneath.  Both items really add a lot to this card.  I Love Them!



Stamps:  Mixed Bunches (Mini) & Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess)

Ink:  Riding Hood Red, Island Indigo & Blushing Bride Classic Ink Pads

Paper:  Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze, & Whisper White card stock; Twitterpated DSP (Mini)
