Birthday Blooms & Sheltering Tree for a Hostess Club Project
I saw this embossing and coloring technique done by Karen Bastel on Youtube, and you can see her video Here.  
I used white embossing powder for the flower, and painted it with Whisper White Craft reinker, and ink pads.  So much fun.  I'm excited to see what all of my hostess club ladies think of this technique when they attend my May 25, 2017 club meeting.
When I decided to combine the current stamp set(s) with SU's new papers and ribbon, I was quite pleased with the end results.
The Tranquil Tide cardstock (#144246), the Fresh Florals DSP (#144131), and the 1/2" Finely Woven Powder Pink ribbon (#144134) will be available for purchase June 1, 2017. 

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Tranquil Tide, scored at 4 1/4.  
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 1/4 x 4, 
  • The Fresh Florals DSP piece is 5 x 3 3/4.  
  • The Whisper White piece under the stamped image is 3 7/8 x 3.  
  • The Tranquil Tide piece on which I stamped and heat embossed my image with White embossing powder is 3 3/4 x 2 7/8. 
  • I stamped my words with Tuxedo Memento Black ink, on a 3 x 5/8 piece of Whisper White cardstock, and used my paper snips to make tails.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done, easy, peasy!!!

Tile Coasters for my May 2017 Hostess Club Meeting


All of my wonderful Hostess Club ladies are going to have the opportunity to make two self-designed coasters at our meeting this Thursday, May 25, 2017.  
Sande Parcell took some time this past week to show me just how easy this project is, and I am very excited to share my new expertise.

Recipe:
  • Basically you stamp a clean, unglazed coaster with a rubber stamp using Stazon ink, and color the image with Sharpie markers.  It's that easy.
  • I bought 1" round self-stick chair slides from my local WalMart, and put 4 on the bottom of each coaster.  Won't scratch your table, and water resistant.  What could be better than that, right??? 
If you have any questions, or live near me in Graham, NC, and would like to attend my Hostess Club as a guest, please let me know.  I'd be more than happy to share all the details.

Crazy About You

I purposely glued my Flirty Flamingo and Very Vanilla cardstock to the Dapper Denim catawampus (crooked) and thought it looked kinda unique, that is, until I pasted it to my blog.  Now, not so sure.  
This is one of my favorite stamp sets that will be retiring on May 31, 2017, along with the coordinating punch.  The good news, they are available for purchase until then, or while supplies last 😇.

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Dapper Denim, scored at 4 1/4.  
  • The Flirty Flamingo layer is 5 x 3 3/4, and I made my background by stamping the flower from Crazy about You with Flirty Flamingo (FF) ink.
  • The Very Vanilla piece is 4 1/2 x 3 1/4.  
  • I stamped the flower three times on Very Vanilla cardstock with FF ink, punched the largest flower with the Flower Medallion punch, and fussy cut the two smaller flowers, (I must say, very therapeutic).  I used dimensionals to give the flower lots of height. I stamped the leaves with Wild Wasabi ink before I glued my flower on the card front. 
  • The words are stamped with Dapper Denim ink.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done, easy, peasy!!!

Best Badge Bundle
I like to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) cards from SU's catalog.  Why you ask, or maybe you are not asking why, and I guess I'm going to tell you anyway!! Because it's fun, it's easy, I don't have to think much (and that's a really good thing), and the designing has been done by one of the very talented SU staff.  How much easier can it get, right?
What I did do, is add another layer, and changed the background dsp, and used an embossing folder. Sure am liking "my" new creation.
Both the stamp set and the punch will be in the new 2017-18 catalog, just not as a 10% bundle savings.  The card stock colors I used (except for the Whisper White) is retiring May 31, 2017, however, any combination of colors would work.

Recipe:
  • The base is a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Tip Top Taupe, scored at 5 1/2.  
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 1/4 x 4, and I dry embossed it with Sparkle embossing folder, (carried over).
  • The 2 x 5 1/4 piece of DSP is from the 2015-17 In-Color paper stack.
  • The Watermelon Wonder piece is 4 x 3, and the Mint Macaron piece is 3 7/8 x 2 7/8.  
  • I stamped the birdcage on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo ink, then punched it out with the Best Badge punch.  I also used the punch on the Mint Macaron to make a window.  I glued the stamped birdcage to the Watermelon Wonder card stock, and put dimensionals on the back of the Mint before placing it over the birdcage.
  • I stamped the words on Watermelon Wonder with Black Archival ink, and punched the piece out with the Duet Banner punch, (carried over).  I popped this piece up with dimensionals, as well.
  • I slipped the Linen Thread through the top of the bird cage and made a bow.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done, easy, peasy!!!

Beautiful You and 
Fresh Fig Cardstock 

I seem to be finding lots of ways to use the stamp set, Beautiful You.  So glad SU is carrying this stamp set over to the new 2017-18 catalog.
I saw this sketch on Wanda Pettijohn's blog, Starlight Stamper, and decided CASE it, well, kinda, sorta.  You can see her card Here, post of 4/18/17.
I used our new Fresh Fig cardstock as the base, and also used the coordinating Fresh Fig classic ink for the words and for the dress.  I used one of the stamps from the set to "color" the dress on the left card, and the card on the right was colored with the ink pad and a blender pen.

  • The Blushing Bride layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Mint Macaron card stock is 5 1/4 x 2.
  • The Blooms & Bliss dsp layer is 5 1/4 x 1 3/4.
  • The ovals are cut with the Big Shot and the Layering Oval Framelits dies.
  • The ladies are stamped with Archival ink.

Affectionately Yours Speciality DSP and Detailed Dragonfly Thinblits Dies
It is so sad the Affectionately Yours Speciality Paper is retiring on May 31, 2017.  It is so gorgeous.  When I combined my SU Copper Foil with the DSP, the card actually talked to me and said, "WOW I'm gorgeous!!!".  Whoever heard of talking cardstock, right???

Carousel Birthday for my May 2017 Classes
The Carousel Birthday stamp set, the coordinating DSP, Cupcakes & Carousels is so cute, I thought it would be fun to offer it at all of my May 2, May 4, and May 6, 2017 classes, (the stamp set and DSP are retiring on May 31, 2017, and the glimmer paper is no longer available, however; there is a technique to make glimmer paper any color you want.  I know it's true because I saw it on YouTube😇). 
I saw this card on Pinterest and traced it to Amy Koenders blog, Stamp with Amy K.  You can see her card Here, post of December 26, 2016.
The cupcakes are from the Lift Me Up stamp set, and the Up & Away Thinlits Dies, and both of these will be carried over to the 2017-18 catalog.  
When you come to class to make this card, your kit will include the cardstock and paper, all cut to perfection, the cupcakes stamped and cut out, and ready for you to design your own masterpiece.  What could be easier than that? Yeah!!!

Recipe:
  • The base is a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Bermuda Bay scored at 5 1/2.  
  • Next the layer of Early Espresso is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The DSP layer is 5 x 3, the Daffodil Delight piece is 5 x 3/4, and the glimmer paper is 4 3/4 x 1/2.
  • The Ferris Wheel is stamped on a 4 1/4 x 3 piece of Very Vanilla with Early Espresso ink.  The words are stamped with Bermuda Bay ink. The Early Espresso piece behind the stamped image is 4 3/8 x 3 1/8.
  • The cupcake tops are stamped with So Saffron ink on So Saffron card stock.  The cupcake bottoms are stamped with Early Espresso ink on Early Espresso card stock.
  • The cupcakes are cut out with my Big Shot and the Up & Away Thinlits Dies and I used dimensionals to make the cupcakes pop.
  • All done, and don't forget to decorate your envelope.
