SNEAK PEEK Wonderful World Fun Fold

Hello stampers,
     Had another post ready to go for today then realized last night that today was Friday which meant I needed to do a fun fold card. So I went searching for a fun fold & found one on Janet Wakeland's blog. I did switch something on my card though & I'll tell you about it below.
     For this card, I actually started with the inside piece, which is where my card differs from Janet's. I used a Basic White Cardstock layer, then added 1" Wonderful World DSP on both sides, my next step was to cut the Mossy Meadow Cardstock opening piece down to 3"x10.5" and then scored it at 5.25". This allows me to rest my inside layer onto the back of the 3" wide piece before adhering it to a Mossy Meadow Cardstock card front base of 4.25"x5.5". The stamp set I used is a bundle with the DSP in the upcoming SAB catalog called Wonderful World. To color the flower I actually used Melon Mambo & Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write Markers direct to stamp then huffed on the stamp before stamping on the Basic White Cardstock that was cut out using Layering Circle Dies. This was then adhered to a Melon Mambo Cardstock scalloped circle cut out using the same dies. For the sentiment, I used the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set with Melon Mambo Ink on Basic White Cardstock, then punched both ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch

     Here is the inside of the card, you can't really tell but it is tucked between the 2 layers, this then leaves you a bit of space to write something down the middle.

SNEAK PEEK- Splendid Thoughts Sending Hugs

Hello stampers,
     This past Saturday Stampin' Up! held it's first all-day stamping event & demos who attended got the chance to pre-order the suite that they would use from the new mini catalog. We were able to make 5 projects, so far I've gotten 3 done not entirely sure I will make the bag but we'll see. The one thing I love about this suite is the DSP that is included,  it's embossed foil on one side & like cardstock on the other, the embossed foil is absolutely beautiful, especially the Pool Party color. You'll be able to see a little bit of it in each of the cards we made from that day.
     The 1st card I'll be sharing is probably my favorite we made but all were really nice. We started off with a Basic White Thick Cardstock base followed by a layer of Calypso Coral Cardstock that was embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder & was lightly brushed with the Craft White Ink with the Sponge Daubers you could also use the Blending Brushes if you prefer. Next, we stamped from the Splendid Thoughts Stamp Set & Memento Black Ink onto Soft Sea Foam & Petal Pink Cardstock then cut out using the Splendid Dies the stamped images & a few other dies using Basic White Cardstock. We then cut out a 1/2 moon from the die set using the non-foil side of the Splendid Day DSP. The sentiment was stamped on Basic White Cardstock using Memento Black Ink then fussy cut (I've never cut a sentiment down like this & was surprised it was easier than I thought it would be. I'm NOT really a fussy cut type of gal! )Once I got all my dies going where I wanted them to go I adhered them to the embossed layer using Multipurpose Glue & the sentiment was adhered using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I also really like the Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon & I was surprised I made a 1/2 decent bow after wrapping it around the embossed layer. For my final touch, I added Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels.

SNEAK PEEK- Kindest Gnomes Thank You

Hello stampers,
     It's been a rough week as I've been having vestibular problems & every time I think that it's gone, it shows me I'm wrong. So I thought I'd write up this blog post real quick while I'm having a good moment. I was so excited to see the new mini catalog & order the Kindest Gnomes Bundle. I just LOVE gnomes but I'm very particular about their look, but this set got my 100% approval,  my husband not so much as he just rolled his eyes at me when I showed him what I got. LOL!
     I started this card off with Crumb Cake Cardstock as the base of the card. For the stamped piece, I used Basic White Cardstock, all the images are from the new Kindest Gnomes Stamp Set & the sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set stamped with Memento Black Ink. LOTS of coloring was done using-  Crumb Cake, Real Red, Starry Sky, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Gray Granite, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Light & Medium Light Stampin' Blends Combo Packs. Good thing I got this card done before all my problems started or this might have been a mess with all the coloring. LOL!

This Birthday Piggy Banner Mystery Stamping

Hello stampers,
     It's been awhile since I've done a mystery stamping card, I need to catch up on them. If you're interested you can go visit Sharon Armstrong's blog HERE to see the card & either download the instructions or head to the video.
     I started the card with a Basic White Cardstock base, followed by a layer of Parakeet Party Cardstock that was embossed using Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder & was adhered using Multipurpose Glue. Next was the tail of the banner where I used Orchid Oasis Cardstock and then embossed it using Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder again. I did cheat I actually used the retired Triple Banner Punch instead of fussy cutting it. For the stamped image, I used the This Birthday Piggy Stamp Set to stamp one of the pig images on Basic White Cardstock using Memento Ink then cut it out using the Layering Circle Dies. I colored the image using Petal Pink, Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, Daffodil Delight & Soft Suede Stampin' Blends Combo Packs, then backed the image with a scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Dies using Orchid Oasis Cardstock then popping it up using Stampin' Dimensionals before adhering it to the card. For the sentiment, I used a Black Stampin' Write Marker marking the 1st line of the sentiment & stamping it on top then cleaned it, then repeating it with the 2nd line.(You can also use washi or scotch tape)
