Special Glitter

Hello Stampers ~ I some Special Glitter for you today!

I hope you are having a great day.  I only have a few days left here and am not sure what we have planned for today.  Sometimes we go shopping at the outlets, sometimes we stamp, and sometimes we just run errands.  They have a home tour this weekend so I know we will be doing that. Whatever we do I am sure we will have a great time.

I am so sad that a few items are retiring or were not carried over.  I am so going to miss Mint Macaron card stock!  I also wanted to see some other colors of glimmer paper or glitter ribbon.    I decided to use those items for my creation today.  I pulled out my Stylish Stems thinlits - which are sold out! - and using a Basic Black card stock I cut out the flower and the stem.  I then used the Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron glimmer paper to back the cut outs.  I mounted this piece onto a Mint Macaron panel.  This panel was added to a white card base with dimensionals.  To finish off my card I add some of the beautiful glitter ribbon from Sale-abration also.  Here is my completed creation.

Product Focus Thursday

Hello Stampers ~ It's Thursday and time for our Product Focus Thursday!

Today our Product Focus  is all about stamp sets that are carrying over.  I have already pulled all my retiring stamp sets and only have my carrying over stamp sets on my shelf.  So to choose my stamp set I just looked on my shelf.  I found one set that I was glad to see did not retire.  I decided I had to use the Watercolor Wings stamp set.  I thought I would pair it with the Serene Scenery dsp.  I chose the paper that was blades of grass.  I cut the edge in a curve and attached it to my Pear Pizzazz layer. I cut a thin strip of the gold glimmer paper and added dots of glue to the back then set aside to dry.  The butterfly was next so I stamped it first with Pink Pirouette.  The next layer was stamped with Watermelon Wonder.  The final layer was Basic Gray.  The matching framelits were used to cut it out.  It was added to my card with a dimensional.  Now I needed a sentiment.  I stamped one of the ones in the set with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I cut it down and used the retired Washi Label punch on the ends.  I used a scrap of Old Olive and the same punch to make the bottom layer for the sentiment.  I added it with dimensionals. also.  Here is my completed creation.

Thanks

Good Morning Ladies ~ I have a simple Thanks card for you today!

 It is midweek and I am sure you are glad the work week is almost over.  Hang in there and you can make it!

Today is our Coloring Down the Lines blog hop.  This week we are focusing on retiring items again. 



I had to look through my catalogs to see what I might find as the one item I will miss the most I shared last week.  In looking through my catalogs I realized there was a thinlit I would miss as I used it fairly regularly.  I decided I would use that for my card today.

I began by cutting out my sentiment from Basic Black and adding dots of glue to the back.  This was set aside to dry some.  My card base is Blushing Bride so I cut a Basic Black layer and a Whisper White layer.  I stamped the flower from Crazy About You in the upper right hand corner.  The glue on my sentiment was dry enough so I took it and added it to the lower left corner of my layer.  This layer was then attached to the black layer which was added to my card base.  To finish off my card I added a bow made from the Sale-abration glitter ribbon.  Here is my completed creation.

Star Blast Fireworks

Good Morning Everyone ~ Do you think it is too early to be thinking about Star Blast Fireworks?

A couple of weeks ago I was playing with the Star Blast Edgelit dies and shared a flower spray I saw when I looked at the die.  Well the other day another idea hit me.  I decided to see if it would work out like I thought.  I saw the die as a firework going off in the sky.  I cut the die out using gold glimmer paper and cut off the edge strip.  I also cut out some of the stars using Dazzling Diamonds and Red glimmer paper.  I applied Tombow to the back of all of these pieces and set aside to dry.  Now to create my night sky.  I took a piece of black cardstock and added some star confetti I had using Tombow glue.  Now it was time to add all my other pieces.  The Star Blast was added to the top upside down so it looks like it is exploding downward.  The other cut out stars were added in various spots.  There were 2 pieces on the edgelit that looked like sweeps so I added them after the stars so it looked like they had a tail of stardust behind it.  To finish off my card I stamped the sentiment from Balloon Adventures and punched it out with the Classic Label punch.  It was added to my card with dimensionals.  The black panel was added to a Daffodil Delight card base.  Here is my Fireworks creation.

Thank You

Hello Ladies ~ Today's cards were the Thank You cards I sent anyone who ordered from me a few months ago.

The first card used some of the Blooms & Bliss dsp.  I added a flower from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set.  The leaf is from favorite thinlet the Botanical Builder.  The sentiment is from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set.  Here is the pink version.
