This is another card created with the Swirly Bird Set, page 152.  This set is so versatile and such a buy.  You can bundle both the set and Thinlets to get a discount and never run out of ideas for design.  Just Search the internet and you will see what I mean.   Check out Pinterest too!  I sponged the back ground with Soft Sky and used Pacific Point, Smoky Slate, soft Suede and Real Red for the boats.  The water is sponged with both Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo and highlighted with a white gel pen.  The sentiment is from May’s Paper Pumpkin.

This set that is called Everything, was included with this month’s Paper Pumpkin, over and above the set that came with the project.  It was to celebrate 3 years and over 1,000,000 paper pumpkin sales.  I love this set.  I used it here with Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow.  In addition, I used in color DSP and Iced Rhinestone embellishments.IMG_0866

Thought I would throw in a card created from the set, From Land to Sea, page 83 in the AC.  I used a watercolor wash on shimmery paper, page 149 AC and the sentiment is from a photopolymer set, Lovely Amazing You.  I used the Bohemian DSP, page 142 n the AC.

On page 17 in the HC you will find this beautiful set of trees. Perfect Pines Framelits dies were used to cut out the trees.  This is a bundle also so if you want both you save 15%.
In addition there are also lovely sentiments and embellishments that you can decorate your trees with.  I left these plain in the background but I love the tree with the sentiment in front.  You will again be surprised to find that these little bambi’s were not stamped but cut out from the DSP, Home for Christmas, page 9.  I used whisper white card stock to stamp the trees and place the images on and the back ground DSP is also from the same DSP set.  I used Dazzling Diamonds to highlight the snow in front.  Aren’t these little guys so stinkin’ cute?

08. July 2015 · Comments Off on Beautiful Butterfly sets · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I created this card with the gorgeous stamp set, Watercolor Wings, page 75.  You can save 15% by purchasing the bundle of both the stamp set and the Framelit dies, bold Butterfly, page 172.
These dies and stamps can be coordinated with the set Butterfly Basics, page 124, and the dies, Butterfly Thinlits, also 172.  This bundle was offered in the Spring Occasions catalog, and now is carried over to the new AC so if you didn’t get it then, you can still get it with 15% off on the bundle.  The DSP is English Garden.

I love this set and couldn’t wait to get it so I could play with it.  Here I stamped it in Lost Lagoon and Tip Top Taupe.  There are actually 3 pieces that make up this butterfly and so simple to put together.  You can get this set as part of your hostess benefits if you have a workshop of $150 or a book party of $150.  It is located on page 180 og the new AC.

I created this card from an older set that is going to be carried over in our new catalog.  It is on page page 30 of the new AC.  The sentiment is from the photopolymer set Lovely Amazing You.  I used colors Tempting Turquoise and Blushing Bride.  Hope you like it.

I designed this card with this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I added the balloons to the front of the card and covered them with Crystal Effects.  This month’s kit is the best ever.  You can make six cards and 4 gift bags and all of the embellishments are included in the kit, along with the necessary glue and dimensionals to put them together.

I used this In color on another baby card…got baby on the brain for some reason.  Anyway, the set I used is Something for Baby with the matching framelits, page 74 of the AC.  What is fabulous about this set is that it is so versatile with all the possibilities.  Here I cut out all the items on this page with the matching framelits.   The sentiment is from one of our Photopolymer sets, Sweetie Pie, which unfortunately is now sold out.
I will add here that is you are interested in purchasing the photopolymer stamp sets that are announced throughout the coming months, it’s a good idea to jump on it immediately and purchase it because they will only be available for 6 months after they are released.  They go very fast.

I really like Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand together.  I used the berry Basket and cut just one part of it out to create this card.  I used the set From the Garden, page 20 OC, and the Handpicked Framelits, same page.   I used the DSP, Something Borrowed.  I punched all the flowers out with various punches and embellished them with both Candy Dots and Rhinestones.  I filled in with the incolor sequins.  Hope you like it.

You can purchase this set and the framellits as a bundle and get 15% off.  That price is good through June 2nd.

I really haven’t used this set as much as I thought I would, but I really like it.  This is a very CAS card the colors I used were Pool party, Shara Sand and Pear Pizzazz.  I used the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge, page 165 AC, to distress it a bit and the sentiment is from Lovely Amazing You.

I got the inspiration for this pocket card from a card designed by Pamela Subjek, another fabulous Demonstrator. She used her card for our shoe box swap for Demonstrators held every couple of months and I fell in love with it as soon as I spotted it.
I did use quite a bit of embellishments on this card.  However, I think it turned out pretty well.  The colors I used were Sahara Sand, Soft Sky and crumb cake.  The stamp set I used is Lovely Amazing You, and the DSP is from SAB, Best Year Ever.  You can still get that DSP FREE with a $50 purchase until the end of this month.  Contact me here if you need a catalog.  Thank you Pamela for your wonderful inspiration.

I created card using this month’s new Photopolymer stamp.  It will only be available while supply last.  The item number is posted above if you feel the need to order.  Don’t wait too long, you know how that goes.
I used the washi tape from Sweet Dreams on page 39 in the OC, Coastal Cabana Ink with Sahara Sand.  I love this combination together.  In addition, I used the DSP Something Borrowed on page 42.

14. March 2015 · Comments Off on Back to Black · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

I thought you may be getting tired of the DSP, Something Borrowed, although, not me, it is my fav in the OC.  This DSP is Back to Black, in the AC, page 187.  I used the border stamp from Butterfly Basics and the sentiment from Build a Bouquet found on page 29 of the OC.

This card I created using the  new set, From the Herd, found on page 15 of the SC.  I made it for one of the ladies I do Water Aerobics with so we could all sign it.  I think she will get a kick out of it and hopefully it will boost her spirits.  She is going through Chemo so your prayers are welcomed.

08. November 2014 · Comments Off on Christmas is in the air! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I never tired of these Christmas scenes.  I used the house from Holiday home and the matching framelits found on page 16 of the Holiday catalog.  In addition,I used the little Deer from White Christmas, page 31, and the Trees were from Festival of Trees, page 24.  Hope you like it!

We made these at our Wednesday morning class also.  I haven’t made a shaker card in so long I forgot how much fun they were.  And so easy when you have the right tools.  All of which you can find in our catalogs.

27. October 2014 · Comments Off on Christmas Ornament · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , , , ,

I cased this ornament from Ilina Crouse, a very creative demonstrator.  I did change mine around a little but the main idea is from Ilina.  This, believe it or not, was not as much work as it looks.  I guess the hardest time I had with it was keeping it glued together long enough so the glitter and flakes stayed put.  I apologize for the reflection of light on the top of the bulb but that is almost impossible to remove while photographing.  I think I could have had better luck if I shot the picture outside in daylight.  The backgound in the bulb is stamped with the set White Christmas.

I don’t think I am ever going to use up all of the items in this kit.  There is so much.  All you really need to do is add your card base, stamp, add embellishments and you are good to go.  I can’t wait to see  what is in the October PP.  I understand it will be something to do with Thanksgiving.  Should be coming any day now and I am super excited.







Another really cute embellishment received with this kit was the little clothes pins, and so many of them.


18. October 2014 · Comments Off on My Paper Pumpkin! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

I had so much left over in this last month’s Paper Pumpkin, I decided to make a few cards.  The only thing I added was our new Washi Tape, found on page 41 of the Holiday catalog.  Our Paper Pumpkin Kits are so versatile now.  This one set not only contained supplies enough to create 6 beautiful bags but 9 stamps so that you have a large variety of Halloween stamps to choose from.








This next card I used the White and Tangerine Tango two-tone Trim found on page 45.  I made the fringe by separating the two colors and then blending them together.DSCN3989

11. October 2014 · Comments Off on Lost Lagoon Wreath · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

I love the new specialty DSP All is Calm on page 22 of the Holiday catty.  The stamp set is Wondrous Wreath that has the matching framelits which you can bundle at a 15% discount.  This is on page 9.  The Glimmer red ribbon is also cut out with the framelits.  However, the “joy” is from the Snowflake Card Thinlits found on page 22.  I used our new in-color Lost Lagoon.

12. September 2014 · Comments Off on Holiday Home at Halloween · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

I originally purchased this set to use at Christmas but then I thought it was great for Halloween.  Just changing out a spooky sky surrounding the houses and adding the ghost an bats (also in the set) did the trick.  Don’t you agree?  This set is so versatile.  Not only does it have wonderful images but it has all the sentiments too.  In addition, you can get 15% off by purchasing this set along with the matching framelits, which I used to cut out the houses.  See page 16 in the Holiday catalog for all the details.

11. September 2014 · Comments Off on Thanksgiving Card · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I created this card using the stamp set Holiday Invitation found on page 49 of the Holiday catalog.  This is a fantastic set if you are thinking of hosting parties through out the Holidays.  Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  However, using Celebrate you can even include birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, Christenings, etc.   I used the DSP from Color me Autumn (page 41) and the new lace trim found in the big catalog.

10. September 2014 · Comments Off on Freaky Friends · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I love this stamp set (page 45).  It is so cool.  I love using it with the stamp set Tee-Hee-Hee (page 47).  Both sets have some incredible images and the sentiments are hilarious!  Perfect sets if you are into Halloween!

08. September 2014 · Comments Off on Spooky! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

I made this with the stamp set Mingle all the way (page 17) and Fall Fest (page 46) in the Holiday catalog.  In addition, I used the Fun Fall framelits (page 46) to cut out the pumkins and the ghost.  You can save 15% by purchasing both the stamp set and framelits together #135856, $24.95.  You can really have some fun with this and it isn’t only for Halloween but the leaves can be used through out the fall.  I used the set Tee-Hee-Hee (page 47) for the bat and EEK!  I cut the legs on the bottom of the card using the punch Decorative label found on page 220 of the big catalog.
