Moon Baby

So Excited when my Stampin' UP order comes.  One of my  newest stamp sets is "Moon Baby".  Baby Cards are so fun, cute, and exciting all at the same time.  So not know in which card I will need-I made
 all 3.  These were Easy to make and I have shown what  I used to make each card.  Most everything I already had so other than the cute stamp set I didn't have to get anything else.  

Tomorrow I will be making some more using this stamp set.  
Check back tomorrow for the instructions for these cards.

You know how I LOVE embossing folders....well I found some new ones and I bought them.  Here is
what I did with the newest ones in my collection.  
It seems like the most cards I make are Thank you and Birthdays.  Card making is fun and so relaxing to me. During the different holiday I make lots of different cards and then I like to send them out to my friends/customers.  Did you receive on for Valentines Day?  If you like my posts I will send you one. 
This is another one of the the cards I made using 3 different embossing folders.  I used 3 different inks and then I colored in the flowers with my alcohol  makers.  And it doesn't show up very well in the photo I used rhinestomes to accent some of the flowers and I used my alcohol glitter pens to make the flowers shine.
Hope you like it.  Fast and Easy.  I Love this kinds of cards.  Do you?

Valentine gift card holder

I love giving Valentines.  I LOVE making Valentines....do you?  Here is an easy gift card holder that is fast and easy using your envelope punch board.  

Using the Envelope Punch board make your first score & punch at 2 5/8.  Next score at the first line and go all around the paper.  
Use your bone folder or whatever tool you have to give your score lines a hard press.  
Measure the inside rectangle to make a envelope.  I then used a circle punch to cut out a center.  Tape envelope to the inside and decorate. 
Turn over and decorate the outside and add your gift card.  I used a mini glue dot to close the outside together.  But if you wanted you could tie a ribbon or make a belly band to close.  
This is a fast and easy project and someone will love receiving it.
Happy Valentines Day!

Valentine Mini card & Gift card holder

Today I was thinking some Valentines gift card holders would be a fun idea for my daughter.  It seems all the kids these days LOVE Starbucks and since she works there I thought this would be something she would enjoy giving.  So these are what I came up with below. 

 This card is a 6" x 3" card base.  Scored at 3"
The Punch is Sweetheart #133786 $16.00 Pg 187 AC
The Arrow & words are from the "Sealed with Love Bundle" pg 14 in the OC
  #144705  $45.75 or you can buy the "Sealed with Love stamp set #142815 $21.00 pg 15 OC
"Love Notes Framelits Dies" pg 14 OC #142752 $30.00
To buy both you save 10% if you bundle
 Envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board on page 184 AC  #133774  $20.00
To make this envelope 
Line the edge of your paper to the 2 5/8" mark.  Score and punch.  The next you line up your score line with the notch and score.  Do all 3 sides the same.  Fold on score lines.
 Before I glued the sides I measured a piece of c/s to fit inside the inside of the envelope.  I made it big enough to fit a Starbucks gift card. Some envelopes my daughter put a little Valentine note and some got both a note and a gift card.  BUT EVERYONE is going to enjoy this little Valentine.

Stamped with the "Sealed with Love Stamp set on the back...added a little glue dot to seal and There you have it.  We made 12 of these in about 1hr 15.  Easy and cute. 
Have fun making these cute little Valentines.

I think the New "Hey Chick" SAB stamp set is fun!

When SAB began I wasn't going to get the "Hey Chick" stamp set.  I just couldn't imagine what I was going to make with it.   Then every time I looked at this set I started looking at it and the little sayings and thought I would get it.  Now....I don't know why I didn't want it.  So many cute cards I have made with this set and here is one of the first ones...with many to follow.  I just love this set and it is actually quit easy to make the cutest things.  Here is one of mine.  I love it inside and out.
 Again I used the technique I shared with you the other day with different inks.  Makes
you embossing folders all look so different.  Love this easy technique.  Try it and leave a comment 
how you liked it. 
Aren't they cute?

Quick & Easy Cards

Here are a few more of the Quick & Easy Cards I posted yesterday.
Love these....
 This one I changed the c/s back to black and put a piece of Whisper White c/s inside to write on.
I cut a slit in the paper and slide in the saying "thank you" and glued it down on the back side.
 Stamped "thank you" and fussy cut it out.  Stamped, colored, & cut out a flower 2x's then using dimensionals I popped it up...added a rhinestone and I Love this card..
 My Favorite!  Love the colors...Great birthday card.
And again...Here is another Valentine Card.  The die is not from SU.  I actually don't remember where I got it but I LOVE it.  The embossing folder is from SU.  Words in the OC catalog 2017

I will post another Birthday card  tomorrow with a GREAT background.  I used the NEW Dragonfly stamp set and framelits in the NEW OC catalog 2017.

New way to make quick and easy cards without buying a thing....

Today I wanted to make some different cards and I wanted to make alot of different ones.  I was watching a lady on You Tube who made these cool backgrounds so I decided to give them a try.  Easy Peezy are the backgrounds.  And then all you have to do is add a couple embellishments and there you have it.  Need a thank you card- make them a thank you....Need a Birthday....make some birthday....whatever you need...you can do that using all your different stamps and ink pads.  
Here we go...

These are a few of the 8 cards I made in 35 minutes.
 Cut 8 pieces of  whisper white c/s cut to 4 x 5 1/4
 Cut 8 whisper white cards 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score at 4 1/4
embossing folders
ink pads of your choice  (I used 4 colors on each paper) I used my little mini ink pads and even my big Stampin' Up pads..they all worked

To make the cards...
Using your embossing folders emboss each piece of 4 x 5 1/4 cs  (I made mine all different)
I picked out 4 different colors that all went together and starting from the lightest color I pulled the ink
pad top to bottom over the embossed image -making small 1 1/2" lines on the paper all the way across.  (Only pull downwards with the pads)
You can see I tried alot of different colors...even ones I didn't know if they would go together--and they did.
Do this with all 8 pieces of cs.
When your finished you will have beautiful  backgrounds you can embellish however you choose.
Glue or tape the c/s fronts to your cards and you will have many easy cards that look amazing.  
*When pulling the ink pads down your paper you don't have to cover the whole paper with one color ink.  Trust me some pads are juicier than other and you will get alot more ink on the c/s so just keep going. 
*If the pad is really juicy use your heating gun to dry in between each ink color.  This way your colors will show thru and you can get each color you use.
* The embossing folders I used where all different.  When you play with them you will see how different each one looks when you add the ink.  The one that I like the most is one I didn't think I would like at all.

Have fun using this technique....I am still having fun with this.  
I will post more tomorrow.
