My Version of Gardening

While my track record for keeping plants alive is nothing to brag home about, I've found a way to create a flower pot that will outlast any bouquet of flowers! Here's my version of the Flower Pot card....Aren't those flowers so pretty? They're the Big Shot variety - Flower Layers Originals dies to be exact. And the center flower is from another favorite - Daisies #2, topped off with a half pearl from the Pretties kit. Here's how it looks with the card out.
I haven't stamped the sentiment, but this is gonna be a Flower Pot for my Mom for Mom's day next week ;) I plan to make more of these in a variety of florals, but this is the very first one I made. My goal was to submit it to Stampin'Up!'s Demonstrator contest to create something using any of the Orange cardstocks, but alas, time escaped me, so here it is for your viewing pleasure. I created the terra cotta looking pot by running it thru the Texturz plate and then brayering it with the Craft Vanilla to give it that aged look. I also used the Basic Jumbo Grommet from the Occasions Mini catalog to accent my Chocolate Chip double stitched ribbon. The leaves are now my favorite new texturizing accent - using the scallop oval and running it thru the crimper at a diagonal. I did 2 leaves per flower and it fills in my flower pot with just the right amount of greenery (at least in my humble opinion). Believe it or not, the card FITS into a regular envelope for the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card! Cool huh! I have to give credit where credit is due, and I was inspired by Sharon Field's card and she also referred to Stephanie Luman's site for the tutorial for the card. So now, you're all set if you want to try and make your own! Aren't blogs cool? I love how it's such a great community that shares! Enjoy!

Tent Cards

Hello there and Happy Wednesday! I'm sharing more ideas today from this weekend's meeting. I just thought these tent cards that Ann made were just too cute! Here are a couple pictures of her projects.
She has a great tutorial on her blog for these. Definitely worth checking out. This is on my list of cards to CASE! :) Enjoy!

WooHoo for Awesome Projects!

Isn't this Top Note box fun?! Yet another reason to get the Top Note die, if you haven't got it already. This was one of the projects we made this past weekend at Michelle Halleen's WooHoo Stamper's Demonstrator event. I honestly can't wait to make more of these boxes in various DSPs so I have them at the ready for, oh, let's say upcoming Freebie Friday giveaways? They make for really adorable packaging for jewels, little cards, stamps, candy or whatever your little heart desires to fill it with! Ready to see the rest of the projects we made? Here's the big picture...
Ooops! I forgot the 4th project, which was a cute little card that I'll post tomorrow. The items are, clockwise from the top: 1) a little treat container using the Sweet Always DSP, 2) the Top Note box in the Urban Oasis DSP, 3) the Matchbox die cut in the Sweet Always DSP (this cute little box was actually one of our favors we all got with the little lip balm inside!), and last but not least, 4) the CD holder album in the Sunshine Garden Simply Scrappin' kit. Aren't these all just awesome ideas for projects? Stay tuned for more pics from the meeting in the next couple days. I'll even share some of my CASES of the projects too!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Cheers to Mojo 84!

Nothing like having tropical drinks on your mind! Hence, my inspiration for my Mojo Monday Sketch 84 card. Having the Pink Flamingo DSP already out might have also helped with my inspiration, too. I just love the happy summer colors in this designer series paper pack. Truth be told, at first, I wasn't a big fan because I thought the colors were too loud. I think you just need to be in the right mindset to embrace the brightness! Now these colors remind me of that wishful thinking on my part? Here's the card I came up with:I actually wanted to use a more colorful ribbon on the Cheers to you scallop tag, but that's the only ribbon I had that matched and was thin enough to create the type of ribbon-bow type thing I was going for. I used the Crystal Effects on my cocktails to make them have more of that chilled yummy frozen drink look :) Hope you like it.
Here are the details:
*Pink Flamingo DSP, Cameo Coral, Whisper White, and Real Red cardstock
*Cheers to You stamp set
*Basic Black and Real Red Classic Stampin'Up! ink pads, Real Red, Apricot Appeal, Cameo Coral, Only Orange, and Green Galore markers
*Scallop circle punch, Spiral punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches,trio flower punch
*Crystal Effects, real red 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, riding hood red taffeta ribbon, brads
Thanks for visiting...cheers to you!

Ready for the week?

Hello there! Hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did. Let me tell you, after the WooHoo Demonstrator event, I was so motivated to stamp and create some projects that I spent most of my Sunday on stamping overload, and doing a little cleaning and picking up in between (though the original plan was the do cleaning, stamp after..). Of course, I had a great time and I felt like the day flew right by! So here we are already at the start of the week, and it's time for me to post Friday's Freebie Friday 16 winner. Thanks so much to everyone that left me a comment!

Are you ready to find out the winner? Drum roll please....and the winner is:
Alicia! Congratulations! Alicia - for some reason, although you left me your blogger ID, I can't seem to find where I can email you, so please email me today with your contact info.

Now, I want to share just a few pics from the demonstrator event that Micehelle Halleen put together for her WooHoo Stampers group - she did a phenomenal job, as always (along with her West Coast crew!). There really were sooo many great ideas that I gathered from it, that I'll be sharing a few throughout the week, along with some of my cased versions :) so stay tuned!

Here are a couple of pictures of Class Projects that Liz Miller shared and had on display. These are a variety of class kits available - some of which were created by Liz and others created by other demonstrators. All of them were AWESOME projects! If you think they look cute in the pictures, they look even BETTER in person. Super super cute!
That's all for now...I'll share more later! Have a great Monday. I'll try and post my Mojo card later today ;)

Ciao for now!

Kristina Werner's Color Challenge 50

Good Morning all! This weekend has been such a fun one so far - yesterday was the WooHoo Demonstrator stamping event which was soo much fun and so inspirational. I'll be sharing more on that in a later post either today or tomorrow. For now, I wanted to share the card I made for Kristina Werner's Color Challenge - it's her 50th already! While I've only been participating in the last handful, I do enjoy going to her site to get color combo ideas and fun and fresh designs. Here's the card I made. The colors for this week's challenge match up so nicely with Stampin'Up!'s Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper, that I had to break open my new pack and try to come up with a design! The paper designs in the pack remind me so much of Hawaii (not so much the flamingos, which are more a Miami thing, I think) so I went with a "tropical island" feel. Notice the fun little swirlies? That's from the Sizzix Swirls Scribbles sizzlit, which is just so cute. I used the die cut image and also used the negative to stencil in a few swirls here and there.
Here's the recipe:
*Pink Flamingo DSP, Whisper White, and Chocolate Chip cardstock
*Cute and Curly stamp set
*Chocolate Chip and Real Red Classic Stampin'Up! Ink pads
*Sizzix Swirls Scribbles die cut
*Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Summer Sun corduroy button, Curly label punch, Boho Blossoms punch, scallop edge border punch, linen thread, brads, sponge dauber
So whaddaythink? Hope you like it. Have a fab Sunday! Thanks for stopping by :)

Freebie Friday 16 and celebrating 30,000 hits!

WooHoo! Not only is it Friday, but I've also just passed my 30,000 website hits! Yay! So, for this Freebie Friday 16, I'll be giving away a brand new pack of the Baja Breeze Corduroy buttons from the Occassions Mini catalog! There's 24 buttons in the pack, 8 each of 3 button styles:The picture is not really to scale - to give you a better idea, the smallest of the buttons is about 1/2" in diameter. They are super cute and would dress up any card or paper crafting project!

Are you ready to play? Just leave me a comment on this post with your email address or blog url by midnight tomorrow night, April 25th! You can answer this question or feel free to leave me a comment about anything you want: What is your favorite die cut (for any machine)? Mine is probably still the Top Note Die for it's versatility, though I will say I love all the flower dies and the beautiful butterfly die. It really makes crafting so easy!

I'll be posting my swap shortly for tomorrow's WooHoo Stamper's Demonstrator Event for my upline, Michelle Halleen's demonstrator group. Right now, I'm currently experiencing some technical difficulties with my ran out of juice! So as it's charging, I'm gonna say bye for now and I'll see you back in a bit.

In the meantime, I'd love it if you leave me a comment for this week's Freebie Friday! Have a good one :)

WooHoo Swap card!

Here's the card I made for tomorrow's swap! I saw a picture yesterday of a Hibiscus flower which sort of gave me my inspiration for the flower. The colors of the card were inspired by this awesome card by mwben on Splitcoaststampers. Hope you like it!
Here's the recipe:
*Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal and Kiwi Kiss cardstock; Bella Rose DSP
*Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss Classic Stamp pads
*Texturz Plates Kit #4, Flowers Layers Originals Big Shot die, Daisies #2 Bigz die, Top Note Bigz die
*Scallop Oval punch, Large oval punch, Crimper, Pretties kit (for the pearl center)
What do you think?

Loopsy Daisy!

I just got my Loopy Flower sizzlit strip today and I couldn't wait to do my version of a CASE of Andrea Walford's Loopy flowers card. Her card is absolutely adorable, don't you think? (Hence my inspiration to CASE it!!!) Here's my version of it - a little simpler, but same sort of idea. I think I'll have a lot of fun trying to figure out ways to use this sizzlit strip. The flowers are so pretty, that I think they'll work well with a lot of different DSPs and color schemes.

For this card, I used the retired Georgia Peach paper, which I love. As you can tell, I have an affinity towards the pink-green combos. I also used the eyelet border and corner rounder to add a little more interest. The only stamping on this card is the sentiment! Of course, I framed it with my other new favorite punch - the scallop oval. I'm really happy with this first card using the Loopy Flowers. I'm sure you'll see more samples with this die in the near future :)

Bye for now!

Mojo Daisies

It's Mojo Monday, and it's time for my Mojo card! Like the little sneak peek? My inspiration this week came from a bouquet of gerber daisies that are currently sitting on my kitchen table. They are so happy and spring-like that I just wanted to try and capture the colors and look onto a card. Before I get to the full card, here's the sketch for this week's Mojo 83. And, here's a full view of the card.And last but not least, I thought I'd share a picture of the bouquet of inspiration along with my card translation...
What do you think? I hope you like it.
Here's the recipe:
*Flower, Daisies #2 Bigz die (I used 3 die cuts for each flower)
*Texture Plates Kit #4
*Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, Textured Basic Black , and Cameo Coral cardstock
*Oval All and Central Park stamp sets
*Chunky Glitter, Scallop Oval punch, 1/2" circle punch, eyelet border punch, and Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon

Thanks for coming by!

Here's to Monday...

Greetings everyone! Hope you had a nice weekend and are ready to start the week off. The weather was soo beautiful all weekend, that I think it just put me in the right mindset. I feel refreshed and ready to go for the week! We had a mellow and relaxing Sunday, so that was a nice way to cap off the weekend. This is a picture of the sunset from last night. The sky was just gorgeous! This is why I'm relaxed I think...Now back to the Monday task at hand. Are you all ready to find out the Freebie Friday Winner? Well, without further adieu, then winner is...
Lauralee! Thanks again to all of you for playing and leaving me a comment. I especially appreciate everyone who gave feedback on what they like most about blogs. I am in the midst of putting my presentation together, so it really was helpful to get some live feedback from you readers. Thanks again ;)

I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Double the challenge, double the fun!

Let's just say that I was inspired to stamp today that I got to make cards for 2 challenges! I did Taylor's Cupcake Challenge 64 and I am participating in my first Weekend Sketch Challenge 77. Part of it is actually because I wanted to go into my craft room and straighten it up a bit, so you know what happens after that...I get preoccupied and come up with ideas as I'm picking up and trying to put stuff away! That's exactly what happened with my card for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 64. The card I created uses some of the scraps that had come up from last week's Kwernerdesign Color challenge card I had made, so I couldn't let the extra flowers I had go to waste, right? So here they are, repurposed for this sketch, along with all that Raspberry Tart designer series paper goodness that I can't get enough of:All materials are Stampin'Up!, except for this card, I did use the square scallop nestabilites to frame my flowers in :)
Here's the recipe:
*Flower Layers Originals Dies
*Central Park and Great Friend stamp sets
*Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss Stampin'Up! Classic Ink pads
*Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Pacific Point cardstock, and Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper
*Double stitched rose red grosgrain ribbon, old olive grosgrain ribbon, jumbo brads, scallop border punch
*Square Scallop die from Nestabilities
Now this next card I created was for the Weekend Sketch Challenge, which I came across in my internet "blurfing" this morning. I came across it on Beate's blog, and followed the linke to Lori Craig's blog, who happens to be hosting the card challenge for the weekend. I was inspired by a few cards I've seen that have made a background out of a gerber daisy stamp, so I decided to pseudo-case that using the daisy-like stamp from the Fifth Avenue Florals stamp set. I also wanted to do another monochromatic card, this time in Baja Breeze. Here it is:Here's the recipe:
*Fifth Avenue Florals and All Holidays stamp set
*Baja Breeze and Whisper White cardstock, and Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper
*Scallop Border punch, Rhinestone brad and Filigree flower
I had fun making these cards! Hope you like them. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great week!

Saturday Shower

Today, I helped throw a shower for one of my very close friends, Michelle. It was a great day for it too - the weather was just gorgeous in Southern California. Not like the chilly weather we had all week - it was actually in the low 80's today. Very nice. Now about the shower, I had a lot of fun prepping for this little party because I got to use my crafty energy and crafty toys, to boot! I made the favors using the Scallop Bag Bigz XL die cut, and I also made a banner using the Pennant Bigz XL. I'm typically not a baker, but I have rediscovered my mini cupcake tins recently and have been making these mini frosted cupcakes. I made 48 of them, and believe it or not, they all disappeared by the end of the shower (heehee)! Then, thanks to the helpful resources on YouTube, I was able to teach myself how to make a Diaper Cake! Here are a few photos so you guys can have a little look-see on the shower soiree today.
The "dessert" table, with the diaper cake in the middle - look scrumptious?A closer look at the favors at the foot of the cake...Here's the banner with the Serif Alphabet letters for the Big Shot.And here's a picture of the Mom to be in the center, along with me and my other great friend and partner in crime, Kimi. We have a picture just like this from high school...and college!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great rest of your weekend!

Freebie Friday 15!

Hello there! So glad it's Friday - it feels like it's been such a busy week for me. Not only is today Friday, but it is also my sister-in-law's and her twin sis's birthday.

Hope you have a great Friday! Ciao for now.

Bella Bleu Butterfly

Today, I thought I'd share a neutral colored card using the Bella Bleu designer series paper. Every now and then, I like the muted colors just because I think they've got such a clean and elegant look. If you look closely, you'll see that the butterfly from the Great Friend stamp set almost looks camoflauged against the damask background. I was debating on the sentiment to use, since I always waffle back and forth between a birthday greeting or a thank you, so I decided I'd be more general and create an all occasion card that said "for you." Hope you like it! Have a great day...the week's almost over!

Hot off the Press - Convention Registration and My New Playlist!

Woohoo - I'm excited to share that I registered for the Stampin'Up! convention today. It's taking place this August and I really do look forward to going every year. I've made some great friends there over the years and I always am blown away by all the new things Stampin'Up! comes up with. Believe it or not, it will be my 9th year this year. I am really looking forward to this one because I would love to meet some of you virtual friends out there that I've met through my blog and visiting other blogs, in person! So, if any of you, dear readers, are planning on going to convention, leave me a comment or email me and let's try and meet in Salt Lake this August! Nothing formal or anything, but I would love the opportunity to make some name and face associations.

Another thing I'm excited about is the playlist I added to my blog just this evening! I think it's gonna be a work in progress, but so far, I'm happy with the songs I picked. I hope you guys like it too - if not, you can always turn the volume down or mute your computer ;)

Well, that's all I got tonight. I've been busy getting things ready for my friend's baby shower this coming weekend. I'll definitely share some pics after! I'll be posting a project tomorrow. I just sorta ran out of time tonight...too preoccupied with my playlist (heehee!).

Hope to see you guys tomorrow. Thanks for visiting!

Walk In the Park Butterflies

Hello again. Here's another card I created with the Walk In the Park DSP and the Great Friend stamp set. This time, I refrained from using the Big Shot ;) ...believe me, it was tough! I am still happy with the card, because I just love this color combo! I made this card for my Aunt and Uncle, who will be celebrating their anniversary on Tax Day. The border punch I used is one of the EK border punches I got at Michael's, but other than that, all supplies are Stampin'Up! Hope you like it! Here are all the images from the Great Friend set:
It's a versatile set that can change its look depending on the color scheme you choose. I've seen some great samples in the blues, greens and browns. That's on my to do list...using those colors with this set :)

Oh! I also wanted to share with you that Stampin'Up is having a great promotion this month. When you spend $40 or more, you can choose any one of these stamps or mini note kits on page 208 of the catalog...for FREE!So, if you're eyeing any stamp sets, dies or accessories in the Occasions Mini or in the Idea Book and Catalog, now's a great time to take advantage of this promo, available til April 30!

Mojo's a Walk in the Park!

I'm so glad I was able to come up with a design tonight for the Mojo Monday 82 Card Sketch! It's definitely one of the things I look forward to doing on Mondays! I knew what set and cardstock I wanted to use, it was just a matter of figuring out what color combo to use from the adorable Walk In The Park designer series paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I really LOVE all the patterns! They all coordinate really well with the Great Friend stamp set. And, of course, I got to use the Big Shot again for this card. For those of you who've been on the fence about the Big Shot or die cutting in general, I can tell you that I really think I do get my money's worth from all the dies and embossing plates. It's practically rare for me to NOT use the Big Shot for a card or papercrafting project! Here's the card I came up with for this sketch - I think it came out very happy and springy! Hope you like it!Here's what I used:
*Great Friend stamp set
*Daisies Bigz die
*Walk in the Park and Sweet Always DSP, Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, and So Saffron cardstock
*Baja Breeze and Basic Gray Classic Stampin'Up! Ink pads
*Trio Flower punch, mini brads, and kiwi kiss corduroy brad

So what do you think? I would love to hear your feedback! Thanks for visiting. :)

Taylor's TECC 63 Sketch

Believe it or not, I was able to squeeze in another sketch late last is the card I made for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 63. Since I had the Rockabilly paper out, I was inspired to create something a la Ed Hardy (sort of, I guess). I wish I had the Just Jawwing set, but had to make do and use the Rockstar stamp from the "A Little Somethin'" stamp set. Here's what I made:Here's the recipe:
*A Little Somethin' and Hugs and Wishes stamp sets
*Rockabilly Specialty DSP, Black textured cardstock and Whisper White and Kiwi Kiss cardstock
*Matchbox Bigz XL die, scallop border punch and scallop oval punch, Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon
Thanks for stopping by today! ;)

Freebie Friday 14 Winner!

Good Morning! Are you ready to start the week off? Mondays can be sooo tough! I thought I was well rested until the alarm went off today and it felt like I just went to bed an hour ago. Luckily, there's coffee and I've consumed just enough so far to feel awake! Ok - so let's get on to announcing our Freebie Friday winner! The winner of the So Many Scallops stamp set is...

Cam! Thanks so much for playing this week. I appreciate your participation! :) Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Kristina Werner's Color Challenge 49

Hello all and Happy Easter Sunday to all of you! Hope you've had a nice day so far. Today, I'm posting a card I created for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #49. I thought the color scheme was a good challenge, since it's a color palette that I haven't used so far in my card making. I wanted to do something bold and use some new die cuts I've gotten (you can never have enough, right?!). Here's the card I created.
I had a lot of fun using all kinds of tools for this card! I even pulled out my crimping tool for the leaves! I embossed the rockabilly paper with the texturz plates, then sanded it to distress the paper and reveal the white embossing. Here's the recipe:
*Flower Layers Originals dies for the Big Shot, Matchbox Bigz XL die
*Flourish Stampin'Up Texturz Embossing Plate
*Raspberry Tart DSP, Rockabilly Specialty paper, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point cardstock and Basic Black Textured cardstock
*Hugs and Wishes stamp set
*Pacific Point Classic Ink Pad
*Scallop border punch, word window punch, scallop oval punch
*Double stitched rose red grosgrain ribbon, jumbo brad, gel pen, sanding block, crimper

Hope you like it! Thanks for coming by to visit ;)

Raspberry Tart Card Caddy

Good Morning everyone! Sorry to be MIA for the last few's been a hectic week for me...I can't believe it's already Thursday! Well I have a fun card caddy share for you - this caddy is the same template as my Freebie Friday 10 giveaway, but this time, I used the Raspberry Tart paper and I dressed it up a little using an EK border punch (non-Stampin'Up!), which I got at Michael's. This project was inspired by Sandy Hancock's cute creation, that I just had to try and make my own. I made it for one of my co-workers for her birthday and I think she really liked it! Here are a few more pictures for you...

Here's the recipe:
Card Caddy:
* 1 sheet of Raspberry Tart paper, scored at 4" and 8" vertically and horizontally
* Border punch (the one I used is an EK one, but any border punch will do)
* 1/8" hole punch and 2 pieces of ribbon to synch up the caddy
* Texturz embossing plates
* Scallop Punch and scissors to make the flower
* Button Bouquet and corduroy buttons
* Sizzlit for the leaves

Hope you like it. Enjoy your day! Ciao for now...
