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.

Bloomin' Heart

I created this card a couple weeks ago and I can't remember if I was using a card sketch or just using random pieces on my desk. I sometimes cut out a piece of card stock or a die cut but then decide against it. I throw these pieces into a pile and every now and then I create cards only using those pieces. This helps declutter my desk a little and I don't feel like I've wasted my precious paper. Haha!!! I know we all struggle with this.

This Bloomin' Heart card can be used as a wedding or anniversary card. It could even be used as a Just because I love you card. It is a simple yet pretty card. All supplies can be ordered from my website and if you order $50 or more in product before March 31st you can earn free Sale-A-Bration items, how awesome is that?

Be Mine

It's been a while since I've blogged but I thought I would take it up again and share my creations. These days I mostly share on my Instagram page and my Facebook page but thought there might be a person or two that miss my ramblings.

Well anyway, you are here to see and here about my projects so I guess I'll share the details. I took one of the Craft Bags and cut off the bottom to make the bag shorter without losing the detail at the top of the bag. I then re-secured the bottom of the bag. I then added a belly band around the bag. I cut a slit in a doily and then fan folded it to add behind the 2.5" circle along with some gold foil thread. I stamped the circle with heart image from Bloomin' Love stamp set and popped it up with dimensionals. I thought it still needed something so I added some die cut flowers with rhinestones to the heart. It was the perfect touch.

I just love the way this project turned out. I hope you like it too!

June Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 8 on the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop -Bree R. of Craft-SomniaIf so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

This month's blog hop is all about the New Annual Catalog and some of our favorite new products. I chose to use the new stamp set Well Worded along with the new Mustache framelit and large Polkadot Embossing Folder. You could probably sell me anything with polka dots so it s no wonder that the new embossing folder was one of the first things on my order. 

I know mustaches have been popular for a while but I pretty much had ignored them until recently. When I saw that the mustache had a framelit to match I knew immediately I would order it. These items make for great masculine cards for birthdays or Father's Day. 

Oh' I almost forgot to mention I used the new Alphabet Rotary Stamp for my greeting. This thing is awesome. You can use it to spell out so many different words or phrases. If you didn't plan to get one I think you should change your mind and order one ASAP! 

We'll I hope you like my card and all the new products used. Make sure to hop on over to Heidi B. of Stuck on Stampin' for more inspiration and ways to use the new product.
