Party Pandas,
One Big Meaning and
Lots of Love
 
Party Pandas is a cute stamp set you can earn for free with any SU purchase of $50.00 or more.  I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) this card from Judy May's blog, and you can see her card Here, post of January 31, 2018.  In my card making world, I believe that to CASE another's design is the highest form of compliment, and thank you, Judy, for sharing.
Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Pacific Point scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The message on the 5 x 3 3/4 layer of Whisper White is stamped with Pacific Point ink before I dry embossed it with the Scattered Sequins EF.  
  • I used a 1 1/2" circle punch for the 3 circle holes.  I stamped the pandas with Black Archival ink on Whisper White cardstock, and cut them out with my Paper Snips.  The bears are glued behind the holes before I glued the base layer to my card.  After I glued my base layer to my card, I used a mini-dimensional behind their little heads and the balloon.  
  • I used my paper snips to cut flags in my 1/2 x 1 pieces of Tutti Fruiti and Birthday Memories DSP and glued them to the card with Tombow Liquid Glue.  The bow is made with Bakers Twine.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts
I received this card from my very creative friend, Michelle Wallace, and wanted to share the stamp set, Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts.  This is a "sweet" set (get it, sweet!) in the 2018 Occasions Catalog by Stampin' Up!  This set will be available for purchase until May 31, 2018, as well as the embossing folder Michelle used to make this card. 
I especially like sets that meets my requirements-and this set says "Yes, you can make cards for seven different occasions, so please buy me".  At least that is what I tell my husband.😉

Recipe:
  • The base is a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Calypso Coral, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Chocolate Chip layer is 5 x 3 3/4, and is dry embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. 
  • The 4 x 3 Calypso Coral rectangle layer is the base under the 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 piece of Whisper White.
  • The cart is stamped on Whisper White with Early Espresso ink, and colored with Watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen, and cut out with one of the Layering Oval Framelits.
  • Linen Thread is wrapped around the above combination before all is glued to the card front.
  • The words are stamped with Early Espresso ink on Whisper White and glued to a 1 x 3 piece of Calypso Coral.  The tails are cut with Paper Snips.  (did I mention the best scissors, ever!!) 
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

Hold onto Hope &
Cross of Hope Framelits Dies
Hold onto Hope is such a beautiful set, and it coordinates so well with the Cross of Hope Framelilts Dies.  I have used this set and the dies many times, for occasions like thinking of you, sympathy, get well, and hey, it's not even Easter yet.

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Rich Razzleberry scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Old Olive strips are: 2 @ 1 x 4 1/4 and 2 @ 1 x 3.
  • The Sweet Soiree' DSP strips are: 2 @ 7/8 x 4 1/8 and 2 @ 7/8 x 2 7/8.
  • The white space on which I stamped my cross in Rich Razzleberry ink is 2 x 3 1/4.  You probably didn't need to know that info, just thought I'd throw that in.😊
  • I cut out the cross with Silver Foil and glued it over my stamped cross with a Fine-Tip Glue pen.
  • The banner is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink on Whisper White cardstock, and the butterfly is stamped with Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White cardstock, and both are cut out with dies from the Cross of Hope Framelits. They are both glued to the card with dimensionals.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

Eastern  Medallion Sunflower
The Eastern Medallion stamp set and coordinating thinlits dies make beautiful cards, and a sunflower is one idea of many.  I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything), this card from Patty Bennett's blog, and you can see her card Here, post of May 4, 2017.  She is a super talented lady.
My card uses the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, like Patty's, the only problem, you can't really see the beauty of them.  Must be the camera, couldn't possibly be the photographer. 😊
Recipe:
  • The base is a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Chocolate Chip, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Daffodil Delight layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 x 3 3/4 and I stamped my words with Early Espresso ink before I dry embossed it with the Layered Leaves Dynamic folder. 
  • The leaves and little die cut across the bottom of the card front are cut out with the Big Shot and the Flourishing Thinlits Dies.  I used a Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere them to the card.
  • The sunflower is made with the Eastern Medallion, and Layering Circle dies, and a 1 1/4" circle punch. I glued everything together with Tombow Liquid adhesive, and used dimensionals to pop up my flower.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

Beautiful You
I am very excited to share a card designed by my sweet friend, and one of my wonderful downline, Wendie Jamison.  Wendie offered this lovely card at our last Shoe Box Swap, (SBS).  Everyone at our swap had the opportunity to make one of Wendie's card, and the best part, everything we do at our SBS is absolutely free.    

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Basic Black, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Bermuda Bay layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • The Basic Black rectangle layer is 4 1/8 x 2 1/8, and the Whisper White rectangle layer is 4 x 2.
  • The raindrops are stamped with Smoky Slate ink.  The pretty lady and words are stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then she is colored with Bermuda Bay Blends markers.
  • To achieve the almost 3-D effect, use temporary adhesive to adhere the white rectangle to the 5 x 3 3/4 piece of white.  Stamp your lady, then replace the white rectangle with your black rectangle, and adhere the stamped image piece over your black with snail adhesive. Clear as mud, right?  
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

Picture Perfect Birthday and Labels to Love
I offered this fun birthday card at all of my February 2018 classes.  You can see Jan Musselman's card on her blog Here, post of January 16, 2018.  I did add two layers of Basic Black.  (Of course I did, right?)

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Bermuda Bay, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Basic Black layer is 5 x 3 1/2, and glued to the Bermuda Bay layer with snail adhesive.
  • The Berry Burst layer is 4 7/8 x 3 3/8.
  • The next smaller Basic Black layer is 4 3/4 x 3 1/4, and is glued to the Berry Burst layer with snail adhesive.
  • The 3 x 1 1/2 and 3 x 3 pieces of DSP are adhered to the smaller piece of the Basic Black layer.  Then I glued this combination to the Berry Burst/Basic Black layers.
  • The 2 5/8" Berry Burst Stitched Shape Framelits square is glued to the DSP with snail adhesive.
  • I wrapped a piece of the Berry Burst ribbon over the card front and around the back of this combination, then glued all to the larger Basic Black layer.  I then slipped another piece of ribbon under the existing ribbon and tied a knot.
  • I stamped three party blowout favors in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Flirty Flamingo ink, and cut them out with my wonderful SU Paper Snips.   
  • I stamped the label, from the Labels to Love stamp set (carried over from the 2017 Holiday Mini catalog), with Berry Burst ink on Whisper White card stock, and punched it out with Everyday Label Punch (also carried over from the Holiday Mini catalog).  Next I stamped my words in Tuxedo Memento Black ink. I glued two stamped party favors behind the label, and one in front with snail adhesive, and up the label with dimensionals. 
  • This card is way easier than it looks, honest!!
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!
