Blueberry Crisp Quilt card

This is a super easy card to make and you can use any designer paper pack (I used Blueberry Crisp from Stampin Up). Just pick at least 4 different sheets, punch out 3 squares (1 1/4 inch) from each sheet.  Cut a piece of white cardstock at 5 x 3 3/4 and glue all 12 squares to this piece using  a random pattern but try not to get the same ones next to each other. Then run this piece through the Big shot using the top note die (place paper face down). After you run it through using the top note die, then choose any embossing folder you want and run it through again using the embossing folder. It will create this neat quilted look. It is a great way to use up random pieces of your designer packs that you might have left over.

 


I used the paper daisies and antique brads to embellish mine. You can also see the embossed pattern if you look really close.

More Fun Flowers!

 

I LOVE*LOVE*LOVE the fun flowers die that Stampin carries. It is one of my favorite new accessories. You can take any of the designer papers, slap them on a card, put the flower die and some ribbon and you are all set with a gorgeous card. A little sponging on the edges really makes them pop too.  The background paper on this card is called Lap of Luxury. It is on pg 174 in our big catalog.

 

Here is a close up of the flower. I used some scrap pretty in pink paper that I had already stamped on to punch out the circle. Then I topped that with a pearl. After I finished the card, I gave it a little spritz of shimmer spray. Love that stuff.

Fun Flower with a shimmer


I made this card for my stamp clubs last month. I love the Fun Flower die from the Occasions mini. If you missed out on it, don't worry….it is still available! It is so easy to make a card and use the flower as your focal point.  The background is done with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. Then to finish it off, I sprayed it with the frost white smooch shimmer spray. The little curly cue in the middle of the button is done with a thin strip of cardstock and I wrapped it around the file in the distressing kit to make the curly cues.

Can you see the butterfly in the window?

I love these beveled window panes. I am so glad Stampin UP is carrying them over to the new catalog. I put one on top of this butterfly from the Clearly for You set. This is a super easy card to make. It looks really pretty in person when you can see it up close. Hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing Mother's Day!

Paisley Butterfly card

It is finally starting to look like spring outside and this card shows off some of Stampin Up's gorgeous flower papers. These come from the Paisley prints pack which was on special last month. It is currently not available but don't worry, it will be back on July 1st when the new Stampin Up catalog is released! I used the Beautiful butterflies die in my big shot to create the butterflies and I also used the tulip frame embossing folder in my big shot for the not quite navy piece. I don't know how I ever survived without my big shot!

Everyone Loves a Fancy Purse!

 

I made this card a couple of months ago and just realized that I never posted it. I did copy the purse  idea from someone's blog but I can't remember who it was. I did change a few things though. I just thought it was such a cute idea. The purses are made from the Cupcake punch! The main part of the purse is the bottom of the cupcake and you flip it upside down so the ruffled edge is on the bottom. Then use the small circle punch and cut it in half for the flap. I think I used the 3/4 inch circle but it could have been the 1 inch. The handles are made by punching half of an oval punch out of a piece of cardstock and then you keep moving the punch over just a bit to punch out part of the oval. I hope that makes sense. The designer paper I used is called Love Letter. Oh, I also used the Tulip frame embossing folder on the black piece.
