Facebook Live - 10/13/21 - Beauty of Tomorrow

 Tonight on Facebook Live I made a couple of cards using the Beauty of Tomorrow bundle.  I tried to resist getting this bundle, but my friend Kay used it in a class and then I had to purchase it.  The Designer Series Paper is so gorgeous that it is currently on backorder.  It is estimated to be available the first week of November  It is definitely worth the wait!

This is the first card I made

Thick Basic White - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2; scored at 4 1/4
Basic White - 3 3/4 x 5

And this is the 2nd card I made

Sahara Sand card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
Designer Series Paper - 2 x 5 1/2
Basic White - approx. 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (for die cut)
Scrap of Sahara Sand

You can find the video demonstration for both of these cards HERE

Just a couple more cards using this gorgeous bundle... These were the other 2 cards from my friend Kay's class.
The gorgeous gold stripes between the Designer Series Paper is gold leafing - so much prettier in person!

This was a quick card to make but so gorgeous.  The Designer Series Paper is the star!  The small leaves were die cut out of gold vellum - so pretty!

Facebook Live - 10/6/21 - Festive & Bright

 This week I've been playing with the Festive & Bright bundle.  So far I've made a Halloween card and tonight I made what I think of as a Thanksgiving card.  There is also a stamp with pine branches and Christmas lights.  I can't wait to create a Christmas card with that!

This is the card I demonstrated on my Facebook Live tonight.

Petal Pink card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2; scored at 4 1/4
Petal Pink - 4 x 5 1/4
Basic White - 1 1/2 x 5 1/2; 3/4 x 3 (sentiment)
Calypso Coral - 1 1/4 x 5 1/4

Here's a fun Halloween card using this bundle

Creative Stamper's Blog Hop - Thankfulness


This month on the Creative Stamper's Blog Hop we are focusing on Thankfulness.  I'm playing with the Pretty Pumpkins bundle. Such a beautiful bundle - the dies are so fun!  

I used a Pale Papaya card base.  I added another piece of Pale Papaya on top of it that I embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder. After embossing, I used my blending brush to add a little Pale Papaya ink to it.  The Designer Series Paper I used is Beauty of the Earth from the Annual Catalog. The pumpkin is stamped in Pumpkin Pie and then die cut.  I added a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock embossed with the Timber embossing folder. The finishing touches were some Pale Papaya ribbon and Champagne rhinestones.  I love how all of these colors go together.

Want to see more Thankfulness projects? Here's a sneak peek of my project in the Creative Stampers Tutorial. You can get this tutorial by placing an order with me, purchasing it for $22 or for free by being a part of my team.
