Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!


We are all creating tags this week at Create with Connie & Mary for our Saturday Blog Hop. We are also all using vanilla, gold and cherry cobbler for colors. How elegant is that? Here's my tag:



Here are all of the details for the tag:

  • Tag Base: Cherry Cobbler Cardstock 2-3/4" x 4-1/4". Cut the bottom using the Scalloped tag Topper Punch. 
  • Layer #2: Very Vanilla Cardstock 2-1/2" x 4". Cut the bottom using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Stamp the branch image from the Muscial Season stamp set at the very top left and in the center using Cherry Cobbler Ink. Color using the inked lines and a Blender Pen. Glue to tag front.
  • Layer #3: Using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and a scrap piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, punch a piece the width of the tag and glue above the "V" in the tag bottom. 
  • Leaves: Cut two leaves using Very Vanilla Cardstock and the Leaf Punch. Glue and layer over the punched ribbon layer. 
  • Musical Instrument: Cut the musical instrument using the Musical Instruments Dies and Gold Glimmer Paper. Glue over the leaves. 
  • Music Note: Cut the music note using the die and Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. Glue over the musical instrument using liquid glue.
  • Hole: Punch a hole in the top right corner and thread the Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon into the hole and tie into a bow.

I couldn't stop with just a tag. I opted to add a card in the mix for a coordinating set. I just love our Gold Shimmer Paper on both of these projects:


The card uses the same elements as the tag with the addition of the stamped sentiment and stamped musical instrument:


Card layers are:

  • Card Base: Cherry Cobbler Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score at 4-1/4" and fold. 
  • Layer #2: Very Vanilla Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4".

Occasion Catalog Sneak Peek!

I've been hearing from some of my customers that their Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs have started to make it to their mailbox....yay! I am so happy to hear this. Enjoy looking at the new products everyone and creating a new wishlist. Speaking of wishlists, here's one you can print for your own use:

MY WISH LIST

Brusho Crystal Colour.....oh my goodness you are going to love this new product! Watercolor ink crystals you mix with water and viola!



This is how I made my masterpiece. I started out by using the new stamp set called Beautiful Day. I embossed the butterfly image using VersaMark Ink, White Embossing Powder and Watercolor Paper:




I heated the powder with my Heat Tool:


I used an Aqua Painter to add water to the inside of the butterfly and then sprinkled the orange and yellow shades of the Brusho over the water:



I also used my Aqua Painter to paint with the crystals. See the containers below? There are five total and when you receive them, pierce a hole or two in the center to create a "shaker". I used my Paper Piercing Tool to add the holes!



When I was happy with the coloring, I placed a tissue over the image to pick up the excess wet spots. I did pat down a little with my fingertips:



See what happens? Isn't the butterfly pretty?


I then fussy-cut using my Paper Snips:




My next step was to use a second piece of Watercolor Paper and this time, I sprinkled the crystals first and then used a Stampin' Spritzer to lightly add a mist of water to create these speckles of color:



Once dry, I stamped the sentiment, glued to my other two layers and adhered the butterfly with Stampin' Dimensionals!




It's hard to see in the photo's, I also added a few Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes in the background:


Card Layers:
  • Card Base: Dapper Denim Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score at 4-1/4" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Daffodil Delight Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Watercolor Paper 5" x 3-3/4". 
  • Layer #4: Watercolor Paper for the butterfly

  • Stamps: Beautiful You *new*

Okay yes, I am teasing you with brand new upcoming Stampin' Up! products today. Some from the Occasions 2018 Catalog and some from the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Catalog. And...I am not sorry for teasing you....ha! Take a peek at my beautiful shaker card:

Aren't these bottle caps a hoot? I also added in some of our Iridescent Sequins into the mix too!


I love the two printed designer paper bottles that I cut out with the dies. Isn't the little heart cute on the label?  I have a blast creating this card for you today and I hope you are anxious to view the new products. Catalogs should be reaching you soon if you are a customer of mine!

Waterfall Card Photo Album!

I made a very special card for my Mom for Christmas this year. As most of you know, my Dad passed away on February 21st and this will be our first Christmas without him. Maybe that's why I'm not in the Christmas spirit this year. They say the first year of holidays without a loved one is the hardest. I still feel comfort in knowing that my Dad is no longer suffering from COPD and the ill effects it had on him.

I found the instructions for this card on YouTube and will list the link at the end of my post. This is called a Waterfall Card Photo Album. I did not use photographs in my card. Instead, I added coordinating pages. Let's start with the cover of my card:



The Santa's Sleigh stamp set and Santa's Sleigh Thinlits Dies made the most elegant cover and pages for my waterfall card. I just love the intricut die-cuts and coordinating stamped images:



Once you open the card, you'll find multiple pages that reveal themselves as you pull on the large tab at the bottom of the card. Here's the first page:



The second page....


The third page and yes the pages get smaller as you pull:


And finally, the last page where I just added a sentiment so I can write a message to my Mom:


A close-up of the pull-tab:


And close-up photo's of each page:





If you would like to try your hand at creating a card just like this one (or use for photo's), you can visit this YouTube video where I found it:
