Hello Friends,
Today is Cyber Monday for Stampin' UP.  So for Cyber Monday  Stampin' UP is offering FREE Shipping to everyone who places an order today.  Be sure to take advantage of this deal if there are any things you need before the Holiday Catalog is gone.  If I can answer any questions you have Please just give me a call, email or text.  I would be happy to help you anyway I can. Click here to shop.

 Here is the link to my NEW Etsy Store-Luv2beecrafty
Many of you have asked what I've been up to and this is it.  Since leaving WA the thing I really missed was the Craft shows I did.  Especially the Tacoma Holiday show.  I was contacted by some of my Tacoma Dome customers and they told me they really missed my booth & were interested in the buying the items I used to make.  So I have put together an Etsy store-but my Something4everyone name was already used by someone.  So on Etsy I am Luv2beecrafty....which actually fits because that is what I like.  So if your interested be sure to check it out.  If you see something you like PLEASE like my store.  I will continue to put NEW Christmas things on it and then some NEW items during the year.  If you need more than what I have in the store please contact me and I would be happy to make them for you -not thru my Etsy store.
Happy Monday!
Thanks for Looking

Treat Purses Tutorial

Hello Everyone!
Here is the tutorial from the Little purses I posted on my FaceBook-Something4everyone page.  If you haven't been to that yet be sure to check it out and like it if you do.  And I want to "Thank You" ahead of time.  Now here goes.  

(The purse I made today I made out of cardstock so it is easier to see the score lines and cuts).
Today we will be making the Top one on the left.  This purse is SUPER Simple to make.  I am making these for Halloween for all my kids & the little kiddos in my neighborhood.  I will post them when I finish.  I haven't filled my yet but you can bet there will be candy in them. 

These are made with 1 piece of 6 x 6" paper.  I used Stampin' UP  DSP.  EXCEPT for the one with the cat.  I wanted to make one not double sided so that one is white on the inside.  And Yes I liked it also.  It has the print around the top and the rest of it is white.  So if you don't have any double sided DSP try it with what you already have.  

So here we go.
 (The purse I made today I made out of cardstock so it is easier to see the score lines and cuts).
Cut you 6 x 6 paper to be 4 1/4" x 6".  Keep the leftover paper-you will use it for the handle and decorating your purse. 


If you like what you see please leave me a comment and if you make some please post them for all to see.  
 I will be posting on both my Facebook Something 4 everyone and here on my blog. 
AND many times they are not the same :)
Have a GREAT day!

NEW Merry Cafe Christmas card

 This Merry Cafe Stamp Set in the New Holiday Catalog is one of my FAVORITES.  But this one I did
differently.  I actually stamped the cup on a piece of paper and drew around the stamped cup to enlarge it.  Added a handle and added a piece to make some Hot Chocolate (or coffee).  LOVE how it turned out.  
The background is the NEW Embossing folder in the NEW Holiday Catalog on pg 37.  
What do you think?
Leave a comment if you would like to let me know how you like my card.  
Here is everything I used for this card (except for the adhesive).  Did you see the New Hug in a Mug Stamp set?  Don't you just Love it?
Hope you have a GREAT Weekend!!

Painted Harvest stamp set is AWESOME!

I love making things with this NEW Stamp Set.  It is one that gives you the watercolor look when you stamp with it as it is a Two-stamp set & I love these kind.    It doesn't matter what color you use because they all turn out pretty.  On my cards: the large flower I stamped off once and on the 2nd smaller flower I did not stamp off.  (stamping off means to ink up your stamp and stamp it once on a piece of scrap paper just to lighten up the stamping....then when you stamp your next smaller stamp on top you will get the definition  you need to make the beautiful layers show up on you flower)  Just line up the stamps as closely as you can and it will be beautiful. 

Can you see the definition on the flowers...When you begin, stamp on a piece of scrap paper and practice.  To make the different layers on this card....I cut out the flowers (by hand and close to the color of the flowers) and used them by putting some re-positional tape on the back and putting it over the first flower...then stamped the next flower on the white cs and also on the scrap paper and it gives it the dimension of on flower being on top of the other.  I did that 2x's but you do it as many times as you like.  Remember to practice first so you get the hang of it.   I love this technique!  
Here are all the items I used for this card.

 Really an easy card to make.  Just be sure to practice on a piece of scratch paper before going to your card.  It will be alot easier that way.  
I hope you enjoyed this card....If you send me a picture of your card I would love to put it on my sure to send me you name so I can give you your credit.

Day 3 Fabulous Flamingo Cards

Another fun and easy card.  Using the masking technique stamp one of the flamingos on plain lite weight copy paper-cut it out.  Set aside.  Do this 2 x's.   Stamp the Flamingo on your card-color it- and cover it with the one of the flamingos you stamped on copy paper & cut out.   (use re positional tape so it does not pull up you paper).  Stamp the next Flamingo on your card a little bite down or up on you card.  When you stamp over any part of the Flamingo that you have covered it makes it look like it is behind or in front of the other flamingo.  
 **It is important not to use thick c/s for the one you are covering bc it will leave a gap around the edges of the paper if it is too thick.
**It is also important to use re positional tape so it does not mess up the coloring of you Flamingo you are covering.
Now that both Flamingos are covered you can stamp the water and the reed around their feet. 
Fun, Easy and Fast card to make.
The colors I used are the same colors as the other ones.  
I did make some clouds in the sky using Soft Sky Ink.
I used a Birthday Sentiment but you can use whatever one you want to make this card.

I stamped the flamingo on a piece of scratch paper and cut it out. (do not use c/s for this-as it needs to be thin paper so your stamp will stamp right up to the stamp)  Set aside.  Hard  fold your Whisper White c/s in on your fold line.  Stamp you Flamingo leaving room for the water at the bottom of the paper.  Add repositional tape to the back of the flamingo you stamped on scratch paper and cover your flamingo.  (This will keep your flamingo from being stamped on and bringing it to the front when your done stamping).
 Using your water stamp-(Memento ink) stamp on 3/4 of the bottom paper-leaving the outside edge for the palm branches.  Then stamp the reeds in your water (MI)
Start stamping the palm branches alternating the colors.  Stamp 3 extra branches on c/s and fussy cut them out- set aside.  You can stamp right on the flamingo if you wish bc the scratch paper flamingo will keep ink  off the flamingo & your flamingo will be on top when paper is  removed & give your card depth.
Remove the scratch paper to begin coloring you card.
Using the Flirty Flamingo ink- stamp the color onto your flamingo.
Here is how I color the water, reeds & flamingo legs.
 Slide your lid back (but do not open it) Press the ink lid into the ink to put a small amount of ink on the inside of the lid-open the ink & then use your aqua painter in your lid ink and color the water, reeds & flamingo legs. 
Be creative and mix your colors to make whatever you want.  
* Aqua painters are WONDERFUL to use...If new to Aqua Painters I  recommend using them before you start on your project just so you see how much color/water you need when using them.
If you make this card and would like to show it off send me a picture and I would love to post it on my blog.
Have a Wonderful week....and be sure to check back to see all the rest of the Flamingo cards I have made.

I am on Face Book also.

Coffee Cafe-Share with a Friend

 Don't you just LOVE to Share with a Friend?  I do and I love to give cards to my friends so this one it a perfect card to make someone know your are thinking of them.  Another Easy Card.  This is I am using the same DSP as all the other cards.  There are 12 double sided sheet of paper so it is so easy to change every card up.  My basic colors are Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Winter White, and this one has some Melon Mambo also.  Can you see it?  I also stamped the words in each line separately  to make the word definition.  I found that if you ink up the words you want -then place a piece of lined paper down to cover up the words you have already stamped it is much easier to line up the words and easier not to ink where you don't want ink.  ***lined paper is much thinner than c/s and when I used c/s I could get all the words to stamp.  Lined paper worked perfectly.
The measurements are:
Whisper white c/s  5 1/2 x 11 scored at 4 1/4
Chocolate chip c/s  5 1/4 x 4
Whisper white  c/s 5 1/8 x 3 7/8
 I used crystal effects on the white lid of the large cup, coffee beans, & sm brown cup lid. I also used some stickles on the background of the card and the sleeve of the small cup.  The circle in the center was inked with Melon Mambo ink to add some more color.
I popped up the words and the coffee cups on this card.

Frappachino and Coffee Latte's

My favorite drink is a latte.  No whip, no foam, just s/f Vanilla.  So thats what I decided to make.  But then I decided for my card I needed to make it I guess I made a Strawberry vanilla latte?  
On with this card.  The background I used the embossing paste again with another background stencil.  Colored the paste with the New in color 2017-19.  I think that is one of my New Favorite colors-its like a lemon/lime color....very pretty.  Another easy card and it turned out VERY cute. 
There are so many different ways to use this bundle...with the stamps or without both have many things to use to make every card different and fun.

Coffee Cafe

I use alot of Thank you cards and I am so glad to see one of the sentiments in the set was Thanks A Latte.
Perfect for me!!!  Love this set, love this card and so excited to give it away.

Here is how I did it:

1- Early Espresso c/s 5 1/2" x 11" scored at 4 1/4" 
1- Whisper White c/s 4" x 5 1/4"
1- 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" Coffee Break DSP ( if you want it a little smaller you can I only wanted a hair of the white to show)
1-piece of WW c/s for the cups to be cut using the Framelits
After cutting them I used the sponge daubers to shadow the edges with Crumb cake ink
The sleeve I cut out using Crumb cake and shadowed the edges
I stamped the coffee beans and sentiment- cut out using the framelits
Embossing paste was used on the DSP.  I used the Fresh Fig ink refill to color the paste with the Decorative Mask. Let dry about 5 minutes.
Fresh Fig ribbon with a bow knot.
The sentiment was stamped in Island indigo ink
Another easy card.  Having the Stamps and Framelits make these cards easy.  
The Embossing paste is AWESOME!  Dries quickly- about 5 minutes depending how much you use.  I do a lite coat b/c it look nice but I am not sure how well paper will stick on it.  (I will find out on my next card and let you know)
 Any questions just let me know....I'd be happy to help you!
Have a Good day!
