Fabulous You

 Ever need a card for someone and you think and think what does she like?  Well,  who doesnt' like flowers, butterflies, or SHOES?  Here's a card that will make just about anyone happy.  Change up the saying and make it a Mother's Day card or Birthday card.  Below I showed you what I used to make this card.  Really, not hard at all.  I used every stamp in the Fabulous You Stamp set.  You will find it on page 38 in the Annual catalog.  

#131995 (w)  $14.95
#126522  (c)  $11.95
Use it also to make a Bridal Shower card.  That would be a Beautiful card- don't you think?

Item's I used are:

 Stampin' Trimmer  pg 176   # 126889  $29.95   AC
use rhinestones for that extra bling if you want
I also used a whole punch & scissors.
This was not a hard card to make.   I Stamped both shoes on a scrap piece of  Whisper White c/s   Then using my aqua painter I began to color them both at the same time.  I tried to make them the same but as you know coloring 2 of the same is not going to happen but they look alot alike.  Don't you think.  After I finished coloring them I cut them out as close to the shoe as possible.  Then I layered them on top of one another so you could see they were a pair.  Then I ran the Crisp Cantaloupe through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.  Using a scrap piece from my Watercolor Wonder DSP I then added a piece to the top of the card & I added the scallop border.  I glued them onto the WW c/s.  There is a small piece of  Pear Pizzazz paper on the edges of both papers.  Then using my small  watercolor stamp I stamped on a small piece of WW c/s all the colors above-stamping off on many of them to give them the watercolor effect.  Then I punched out my petite flowers - both in the watercolor design I just made.  Made the centers of the flowers with the circle in the Itty Bitty shapes punch set and another by my whole punch.  Used Glue for this whole card- Yep no tape at all.  Use whatever saying you would like.  Any saying would be good.  Hope you enjoyed this card.  
Have a Fun weekend!

Thank you ---NEW Petite Petals

This is the new Petite Petals Stamp set in the NEW Occasions Catalog.  (pg 33)  This Stamp set is one of the ones that come in a bundle-meaning- if you would like to buy both the stamp set and the punch you can save yourself 15% by buying them in a bundle.  Of course, if that isn't what you are wanting they also offer them separately.
Petite Petals Punch  #133322  $12.95
Petite Petals stamp set  #133152  (w)  $15.95 or #133155 (c)  $11.95
Bundle & Save 
(w)  #134821  $24.50 or (c)  #134822  $21.25
(which includes bot the stamp set & the punch)

I love this card.  With this set I can do so many things with it.  The flowers I stamped with Versa Mark on Crisp Cantaloup c/s then  embossed them with clear embossing powder.  It really make the flowers stand out, don't you think?  Also, the green leaves I did the same way with the versa mark on green paper, embossed them, but I then cut out the petals and added them to the flowers.  You certainly cannot tell they aren't leaves.  And it gave the card an added punch!  Loved it!  The
"Thank you" saying is from the Simply Celebrate stamp set.
Simple Celebrate on pg 30 in the Occasions Catalog
#133221 (w)  $16.95  or #133224 (c)  $12.95  
With this stamp set you can stamp it once or stamp it off to give it that lighter shadow.  The top one is stamped once in Island Indigo and the bottom one is stamped twice.  Note:  when making this shadow,  stamp the image once and then without lifting your stamp but just a little move it over and stamp it again to the right of your first image.  You will then create this shadow.  Hint:  practice a couple time before you stamp your finished product.  *must use the same ink-do not re-ink to do this technique.

The paper is the NEW Watercolor Wonder DSP   in the Occasions Catalog pg 23
#132994   $10.95
12 double sided sheet of 12" x 12" paper
Coordinates with Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green,Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, Tangerine Tango & Whisper White c/s.

Other items I used on this card is:
Happy Watercolor stamp set  on pg 22 of the Occasions Catalog.
#133188 (w)  $29.95  or #133191  $21.95

I love this set.  The watermark stamps- one large & one small I seem to be using all the time.  It makes great boarders on cards and crafts.  I used the small one on the Thank you background.   I did mostly stamping off to create the more subtle tones.
I hope you liked this card.  I love to read how you like the cards.  Feel free to leave me a comment.  
Remember if you need a catalog just send me an email and I will be happy to send one out to you.

My Little Valentine .....was a Favorite at Splitcoast stampers week ending Feb 16th

Well,  last night we had snow.  Lot's and lot's of snow.   So guess what.....yep, another Valentines card.  I have been thinking about doing a ladybug card for a while.  And Valentines day seemed a great time to do just that.  Here is what I used...

Whisper White c/s   1- 4 1/4 x 11   1-4 x 5 1/4
Real Red c/s  1- 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
scrap Garden Green paper for grass
Basic Black scrap -for antena's and scallop edging
Polka Dot Parade DSP for bottom of the card
Aluminum foil -embossed with the  NEW Decorative Dots embossing folder in the new Sale-A-Bration catalog pg13 item #133520
 (I wrapped it around the 4 x 5 1/4 c/s and then ran it thru the Big shot then wrapped the edges under the c/s and glued them down)- (be sure to cut bigger that what you want it to be in case it tears)

The hearts are from the owl punch  pg 183  #118074  $16.95
Tea Lack Paper Doilies  pg 156  #129399  $2./95 24 doilies per pkg
1-  1 3/4 " circle punch (body) pg 182  #119850  $16.95  1 red & 1 black  (I used my crop a dile to  punch the 2 sizes of holes in the red one to make the spots)  Glued them together and cut off the bottom to make it flat.
1- 3/4" circle punch (head) pg 182  #119873  $12.95
Small Heart punch  pg 183  #117193 $5.95 
Scallop Trim Border punch  pg 181  #118402  $15.95
Rhinestone Basic Jewels  pg 171  #119246  $4.95
white ribbon (retired)
NEW Fringe Scissors -for the Grass-(Occasions catalog)   pg 31  #133325  $9.95

The face I used googly eyes I already had.  To make the mouth I took a scrap piece of  Real Red c/s and on the side I took my 3/4" circle punch and punched a 1/2 circle.  I then put my circle punch back into the same hole and I moved it up and down to see how big of a smile I wanted -then punched out a smile.  An easy way to make a smile-also you can do that with any size circle punch you have-I usually use the same size circle punch to make the smile as I do the head.

The antena's I cut out of a scrap piece of black and added a small circle on the tip to finish the ends.
I also added a very small strip of black to put at the bottom of the card.

Hope you enjoyed this  card.  Add a sentiment if you'd like.  I think this card could be for just about anything you would need it for just by changing the hearts to little presents, or flowers or whatever kind of card you need.

Hope you have a wonderful week.  Please leave me a comment it you enjoyed this card and don't forget to check out my new F/B page......Something 4 Everyone and please click "Like" if you like what you see. Thanks so much!
