Easter Bunny

Easter is approaching so quickly!  I really haven’t done any creating for it at all.  I normally have my extended family over and I make them handmade invitations but this year it snuck up on me and I didn’t get any made in time – so I had to do an evite – I’m so sad.

I did create this card for my Stamp Club this month.  I decided to use the Garden Girl stamp set with the cute little bunny.  And the Springtime Foils Designer Series Specialty Paper from Sale-A-Bration.  Sale-A-Bration is coming to and end – it will be here before we know it right there with Easter!

easter-bunny-foil

The Springtime Foils Specialty Paper is one of the Free Choices during Sale-A-Bration – you just need a $50 order and you can get the full pack.  I used the stripes for my card and this paper works so beautifully with our Stampin’ Blends.  I used the Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends to color in the stripes in between the silver printed stripes.  It’s subtle but pretty.  It would be fun to do bright colored stripes – and even cut the paper into egg shapes.

The bunny is stamped with Memento Black ink on Whisper White card stock – I did some coloring with my Smoky Slate Blends and cut him out.  The fence is stamped in Crumb Cake ink and colored in with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  Then add the grass in Wild Wasabi and die cut with a Stitched Circle.  Behind it is a Wild Wasabi scalloped circle cut from the Layering Circles Frameltis dies.

I tied some Silver Bakers Twine around the foil layer before adhering it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the front of my card.  The small Happy Easter is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

I “hop” you enjoyed this card.  Thanks for stopping by.

Bubble Over Bingo

I wanted to share a recap of my Bubble Over Bingo event at the end of January.  It was so much fun!  I had a full house with all 12 seats in my little classroom taken.  Everyone had fun playing Bingo games and making their projects.  I also made everyone a little table treat for when they arrived and a little thank you gift.  Everyone had a goody bag with the Bubble Over stamp set, Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes and supplies for their projects.  The prize winners also went home with additional goodies – like the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies, card stock packs, ribbon, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Paper and more.  Everybody went home with something fun.  I hope you’ll join me the next time I have a Bingo event.

Here are some photos from the day:

 

Here is a close up of the little Bottle Cap Treats that were on the table for everyone. I actually found bottle cap candy to go in them.

A fun time was had by all!

Decorate a plain bag

Decorate a plain bag with a cute tag like I did here.  It’s Tuesday so I thought I’d share a tag idea – it’s Tag Tuesday right?  Oh wait maybe that’s just me being silly.

bag-with-a-tag

I use the Card Front Builder Thinlits again.  I just love the trees and the little deer. But they are retiring so be sure to order them before they are gone!

I layered them on some Lots of Labels cut pieces.  Tie on to the bag with ribbon.  And I added twine as well.  The greeting stamp came from one of the Paper Pumpkin Kits.

SHOP HERE FOR THE DIES – the year end sales event is going on now.

Have a great day.

Tree Tags & Free Shipping

Tree Tags & Free Shipping

Last Friday I was scheduled to have a Wrap Up the Holidays class but mother nature didn’t like that idea.  Instead we had snow!  Which is not normal for us – I live in Georgia – we average maybe 1-2″ of snow in a whole year and that’s usually in Jan/Feb time frame – occasionally in March.  Rarely in December.  But this weekend we got about 8″ of snow at my house!  So since my class was cancelled I decided to be brave and do a FB Live on my Stamping Together At Monika’s Place Facebook page instead.  It was my first real one on my page where I showed a project.  You can visit my page to watch it if you haven’t already.

Here is the project that I made.

tree-tag-FB-project

It’s a set of tags featuring the Card Front Builder Thinlits dies and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  I also made a little box to hold the tags.

You can get written instructions here – Tree Tags and Box

Santa’s Suit

Santa’s Suit

This Santa’s Suit stamp set is so cute!  The Photopolymer set has all the different pieces to create fun cards and a coordinating die set called Santa Builder Framelits.

santa-suit-close

It stamps so nicely.  I did the outline of all the images in black and then stamped the filler images mostly in Real Red.  The suspenders are colored in with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker and so is his belt buckle and the clothes pins.  There are stamps to fill in the suspenders and the clothes pins but we were already using up all my little blocks so I thought the markers worked just as easily.

I also used the Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker to color in his heads, hands, and feet.

santa-suit-inside

On the inside of the card I added his boots.  On this one I also have mittens on the inside.  But on the others that I made I included those on the front clothes line.  When I made this card I spaced the front too far apart and they wouldn’t fit.

santas-suit

The tag is part of the Framelits dies. And I tied it on with a piece of the Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon.  The red striped Designer Paper is from the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper pack.

The Santa’s Suit stamp set, Santa Builder Framelits Dies, the Santa’s Suit Bundle and the Christmas Around the World Designer Series paper will all be retiring after this Holiday catalog ends.  Be sure to order them now before they are gone.

This card was part of my Stamp a Stack class last month. Everyone in my class made a set of 5 of these cards.

Season of Cheer

I hope you were able to get in your reservation for the Stamparatus – our new stamp positioning tool coming out in 2018.  If you need help let me know.  It’s going to be great to use when you need to make multiples of a card.  For example a Stamp-a-Stack class would be a perfect setting for a tool like this.  I’ve been sharing some of my cards from my Christmas Card stamp-a-stack classes and I have another one to show you today.

season-of-cheer

This one was my take on a card created by my friend Connie Collins.  She is so talented and will be part of the 2018 Artisan Design Team for Stampin’ Up!  I can’t wait to see what she creates with our new products in 2018.

For my card I used a Crumb Cake card base and then a couple of layers of the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series paper.  I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the circle that I stamped my greeting on.  The stamp set is Watercolor Wishes – I do believe it was my most used stamp set this season.  The big words really worked on so many of my cards.  The white circle and the white music print were both sponged with Crumb Cake ink.  I finished with Linen Thread and a snowflake die cut out of the Champagne Foil using the large snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.

Everyone in my class made a set of 5 of these cards.
