Marquee Messages Shaker Card


Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a video I made showing how to make a Shaker Card with the Marquee Messages stamp set. Shaker cards are so fun to make and they aren't very hard to do either.

The most important part of a shaker card is the depth you need in your window piece, this is all made possible with the new Adhesive Foam Strips by Stampin' Up! and of course some sort of sequins or confetti.

Flamingo Favor

 Today I shared the second version of the Flamingo Treat Box on my IG & FB and thought I might as well add them to my blog. My blog gets forgotten about most days just because it takes a little more effort to write up a post.

Last Tuesday was stamp club and the Flamingo Treat Box was one of the two projects we made. Luckily no Flamingo legs were lost in the process of fussy cutting the flamingo. Haha! My club/card class members love when I have them fussy cut, that is why they keep coming back, right?

Well one of my club members wasn't able to make it but I had already prepped my projects so afterwards I had some extra supplies all cut and ready to go so I put myself to a challenge. I decided to switch up the stamp sets but use the same materials. This was a little hard for me when it came to the Weather Together Treat Box, at one point I think I almost just gave up. Then I decided I couldn't quit.

So here is my Weather Together Treat Box, these would be awesome for a Bridal Shower. It is raining love! I'm glad I didn't quit and worked it out because even though I probably would have never grabbed this set for a treat box, it shows its good to think outside the box every now and then.

Would you like to see my Grey and Soft Sky Flamingo?

Pop of Paradise Popcorn Box

The Pop of Paradise stamp set was one of my must haves from the new SU! catalog so when I realized I had left it off of my preorder order, I was disappointed. So I had to place another order just to get it.

Today I recorded a video using the Pop of Paradise set and the Popcorn Box, these would make great favors or little thank you gifts. Enjoy the video.

Dear Friend

The Bloomin' Hearts stamp set has got to be one of my all time favorites out of this year's Occasion Catalog. I have stamped with it more than any other stamp set I've purchased lately.

I stamped the flower image and colored it with Blushing Bride and an aqua painter. I used old Olive for the leaves. After I was all finished I decided to fussy cut the image. That took a little bit but it was worth it. I stamped the dear friend in basic black on a circle from my circle framelits and then matted it with a larger circle from my framelits. The flower is popped up with some dimensionals.

I knew I wanted a white background with small black polka dots but I didn't have any DSP like that so I looked through my stamps and didn't really find what I was looking for, then I realized I could use the small stamp from this set to create my background. I stamped it about 50 times but it was worth it! I matted it onto basic black card stock and then I added the strip of Blushing Bride and some Whisper White Cotton Ribbon.

I love the way this card came out, now I just need to send it to a dear friend.

Get Well Soup

It is flu season and if you are like me, you probably know a few people that have come down with that nasty bug, so why not make them something cute.

I originally saw something similar created by fellow demonstrator, Pam Steckman and knew I needed to case the idea.

These craft bags are so convenient for many ideas and occasions. Although they were a little longer than the packet of soup and I wanted my soup packet to stick out just a little. This caused a little delemia because I didn't want to cut off the top and loose the decorative edge, I could have used my Treat Bag Thinlits to create one but I was being lazy, and then I got an idea.... Cut off the bottom!

So I did just that, I cut a little off the bottom and scored about 1/2 inch up, folded in the edges, and glued it down with my tear tape. Problem solved.

I used a strip of lost lagoon for a belly band and added an embossed piece of whisper white to the bag. After that I stamped and colored my image. I decided I didn't like the black heart on the front of my bowl so I punched a circle to cover it up and then punched a heart in lost lagoon and popped it up on the circle. After that I decided it needed a little something more so I colored the heart with my clear Winka Stella. It adds the perfect sparkle! I love the Winka Stella, if you haven't purchased any, you must add it to your next order!!!

Well that's all for today, see you next time.
