2017 Easel Calendar!

Hi Stampers! I have a new 2017 Calendar to show you today that was so easy to create. Each year I try to come up with something different that I use in my stamp room for a calendar. This year is no different. This is what sits in my room:





Isn't it pretty and elegant? I use Basic Black, Basic Gray and the Red Foil Sheets for my calendar and then added in some Whisper White Flowers. I knew I wanted to use the new So Detailed Thinlits Dies. See my layers below?





And this is the photo easel that I purchased in the frame section at our local Walmart. I think I paid 96 cents for it:




Once I inserted glued my 3 layers together, I inserted into the frame and then added the calendar and flowers from the So In Love stamp set, to the front of the frame along with some Perfect White Accents:





I ended up layering the flowers with two layers. So I stamped 8 flowers total and hand-cut 4 of them to size. For the other 4 flowers, I trimmed them down smaller so I could glue them in the center with Stampin' Dimensionals to add height:






I even added Clear Wink Of Stella to the top layer and it looks fabulous in person:




The red foil delicate layer looks so pretty as a backdrop of color and adding just a few White Perfect Accents to the center of the detailed flowers really added to the mix. The White Perfect Accents were also glued to the front of the frame:




And here's a close-up to show you the height of my flowers:

Kylie's International Blog Highlight For January!



Welcome to Kylie's International Blog Highlight. I'm so glad you are here visiting me today. Our theme for this month's blog highlight is "Travel". I immediately dug out the new stamp set called Tasty Trucks from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. I just love the little truck image that is included in this stamp set and that's what I used for today's projects.






As you scroll through my projects, keep in mind that you'll be seeing lots of inspiration today with all of the participating blogs. What is important about this hop is that we are all being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project.


So the first part of my coordinating projects is my tall card:




The card was created to fit in a #10 envelope and if you scroll down a few photo's, you see that the truck image is a "shaker" using the new Sprinkles Embellishments:




And I also added some Clear Wink Of Stella to a few of the details on the truck:




The box was created to coordinate with the truck using the Lift Me Up stamp set and the Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies:




The Urban Underground Designer Paper added a masculine feel to both projects don't you think?




Please Visit Kylie's blog to vote for my project so I can participate in the upcoming international blog hop. I would so appreciate your vote!

Allow Me To Be Funny?



My Stampin' Up! Cool Treats stamp set arrived a few weeks ago. As I was re-organizing my shelves for the new Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Catalogs products that I purchased, I had this stamp set in my hands and the first thing I spied was the top portion of an ice cream cone. I did not see it as an ice cream cone at all. The stamp set actually brought back memories of being with my 8 year old granddaughter Kaitlynn this summer at a balloon fest. She spotted this at one of the game booths:





Yup, and it was a brown one on top of that! She desperately wanted one and played the game and won. She carried the Poop Emoji Pillow with her the whole time we were there. So thus is born my Poop Emoji Card....just for Kaitlynn!




Isn't that just too funny! Once I stamped the brown-you-know-what, I added googly eyes and the Poop Emoji was born. He is kind of cute though huh?




I can't wait for Kaitlynn to see this the next time she visits. She actually has a birthday coming up in March. Maybe I'll save it for then. I sent the photo of the card to my daughter in a private message and she said "she'd like that"! I just don't understand what kids see in this but oh well. I'm game to play along...just for a bit though!




If you would like to create a card just like this one, here are the steps and supplies needed:

  1. Card Base: Chocolate Chip Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold in the center at 5-1/2".
  2. Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  3. Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 4-1/2" x  3-3/4". Stamp the sentiment about 1-1/2" from the bottom using Chocolate Chip Ink. Stamp the emoji above the sentiment using Chocolate Chip Ink. Glue two googly eyes on the emoji. Wrap Blushing Bride Solid Twine around the bottom 3 times and tie into a bow. Glue cardstock layer to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Stampin' Up! Supplies Used Plus Googly Eyes:

Merry Monday Challenge #231!



Reindeer is our theme this week at Merry Monday. Now I know you all will have some kind of reindeer stamp in your stash that you can use to play along with us.




I created a scenery for my reindeer today. I repeatedly stamped the tree image without re-inking on some of them and then added some white Mica Flakes below the trees for some fake snow.







I completed my card by adding some Rhinestone Jewels and some red Baker's Twine which sits right above the sentiment. I hope you do plan on joining our challenge at Merry Monday this week!

Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies Are Back!

Today is the day a lot of you have been waiting for. The Stampin' Up! Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies are back in stock. We sold out of them so fast when they first debuted and now's your chance to purchase them starting today!






This was a card I created back in December when the dies were still being sold. The dies sold out before I could blog about this card. Now that the dies are back in the store, I thought I would post my card. Notice the stitched square shape and the stitched shape oval? How pretty with the stitched lines:






I white-embossed the sentiment from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set (still available) on Basic Black Cardstock and cut the shape with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies:





The square was stamped with the Christmas Pines stamp set and I also added some branches cut with the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. Although some of the products I used were from the Holiday Catalog that expired, the products I used are still available! Here's the list and make sure you go right to my Online Store to purchase:

Valentine's Goodies I'm Selling!

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Sunday. Today's two projects are something I made for our local consignment business. I sell some of my cards and other items there. I've been selling holiday-themed treats boxes like crazy and Valentine's is just around the corner. I am using the retired Square Pillow Thinlits Dies for the treat holder today:




When I purchase 3D dies through Stampin' Up!, I always keep them close at hand, even when they retire because I do sell at this business and at craft fairs. If you search for Pillow Box Patterns you should be able to find a pattern to cut one of these by hand if you don't have this retired die. The photo below shows you the coordinating 3" x 3" Mini Card & Envelope:




The card is cut at a measurement of 6" x 3", scored in the center at 3" and folded. I used a layer of the Sending Love Designer Paper as a layer which measures 2-3/4" x 2-3/4". The rest of the layers are from the Sealed With Love stamp set and coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies. Isn't that little teeny tiny envelope the cutest?





I made a bunch of these in different colors. I try to use my retired cardstock to use it up and that's what most of these colors are:



Products Used: (Retired: Square Pillow Box Die, some Retired Cardstock)

Today, our Saturday Blog Hop theme is "Birthday". The Big On Birthdays stamp set from the Occasions Catalog coordinates well with the Any Occasion stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. I love how Stampin' Up! coordinated a lot of the products to play well together from both catalogs.








These 3 colors remind me of a tub of sherbert and look so yummy together. Such a simple card to create also and finished off with some Rhinestone Jewels:



Steps to creating this card:

  • Card Base: Crushed Curry Cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score and fold in the center at 4-1/4". 
  • Layer #2: Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 4" x 5-1/4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 3-3/4" x 5". Stamp the large sentiment from the Big On Birthdays about an inch from the top using Crushed Curry Ink and add all of the other images from both stamp sets using Crushed Curry and Flirty Flamingo Ink.  Glue to card front.
  • Bling: Add some Rhinestone Jewels to the background!
Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Big On Birthdays, Any Occasion
  • Cardstock: Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White
