Part 2 Printed Window Sheet

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I spent the weekend with family celebrating my bday and it was wonderful! This card is part 2 of the demonstration I did for my down line on printed window sheets. Again, I am sorry for the photo, it is so hard to get a good photo with minimal reflections on the window sheet. After I cut the window sheet I rubbed the white stems with green stampin pastels to make them green stems and the brads are the glue that hold the window sheet to the card. I really love the dimension the window sheets add to any card.

Tip for window sheets, cut them with the printed side down. If you use a rotary blade and press too hard you can rub off the white print.

All supplies SU unless otherwise noted: Clearly Thanks window sheet, Chit Chat Rubbons, stampin pastels, silver brads, paper piercer, celery ribbon, So Saffron and Rose Red Designer Series Paper, Broc. Blue and So Saffron CS, Trio Flower Punch.

Easy! Easy! New Stampin' Up! Stuff!

Guess what my sweetie pie hubby did for me last night. He invited some of our friends over to surprise me. My bday is next Friday (24th) and he will be gone all week and weekend. SO SWEET! I had so much fun and I should be cleaning up but instead I was stamping. Oh, I have to tell you that my hubby told everyone to make me a hand made card. They were awesome and too funny. I will try to post them! Wasn't that cleaver of him. Anyway, I made this today, not really a new layout or anything but I used tons of new SU supplies. Easy Peasy!

This was inspired by a skirt of mine!

I have this black skirt with white flowers all over and it inspired this card. I am just addicted to embossing lately. I always thought it was too labor intensive but it really is very simple and makes a striking statement. Oh, and have your noticed how much I have been using the new modern label punch? Love it! Enjoy this beautiful day!

Supplies all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted: Fifth Avenue Floral, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Melon Mambo CS and ribbon, rhinestones, Punches-Word Window, Modern Label, & Eyelet Border, Versa Mark, white embossing powder, embossing buddy, dimensionals, basic black ink.

Look what I collected from my garden!

My mother-in-law gave me a Hydrangea Bush last year for Mother's Day (so sweet considering I absolutely love Hydrangeas)! So last year it was just getting its little feet settled in, and this is the first blooms of the year so I am super excited!

Part 1 Printed Window Sheets

Last month I did a demonstration for my stamp group and I showed them Stampin' Up!'s printed window sheets. These sheets are amazing and can help you make some wonderful and simple cards. I think the polka dot is my favorite. Beings these sheets are so reflective it is hard for me to get a very good photo. Please forgive me for my lack of photography skills. I will share more of my creations soon.

My Hallmark CASE!

Today I am sharing my Hallmark CASE. I totally love this Hallmark card and it is full of great stamping ideas. I love these colors together and may have never thought of it until my sweet mother (love you mom!) gave me this card for Mother's day. I am still trying to figure out how to take better photos....So if you look close at both cards (click on them and enlarge), they have a glittered frame behind the flower image. Then the flower is clear embossed on Pink Passion and then I used a Versa Marker to highlight some of the petals.

Fifth Ave Stamp Set. Colors-Whisper White, Only Orange and Pink Passion, Ribbon from Michael's, Clear and Iridescent Ice Embossing powder and Versa Mark Ink Pad and Marker (highlights on flower).

The beginning of my creative outlet!

This card is an original of mine and I hope you enjoy it. I just Stampin' Up!s clear transparency sheets, vellum, and Sizzix Daisy Die to make the flower. I used crystal effects to fill the center of the grommet. I love these grommets! CS/DSP- Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette and Basic Black
