Map it For You Monday...sometimes better things

Happy Monday! Wow!!! It's hard to believe it's the middle of April.  I have been crafting, just not papercrafting.  My Mom has been showing me how to quilt.  I finished one.  Now all she has to do is put it on her longarm machine for me. 
Today I have a sketch for you from over Splitocoast Stampers Sketch Challenge.  

And I also used their color challenge for the week to see if I could come up with something!

I have to say I am loving the way mine turned out!
I don't use this feather stamp set enough from Stampin' Up!
I used soft sky, dapper denim and night of navy classic ink pads on a base of 41/4" whisper white cardstock to randomly stamp all over the card front.  I cut the pool party designer series paper from the sweet treat pack at 1" X 41/4" and a 1" circle.  I used soft sky cardstock for the 1/2" circle.  The whisper white tag is 23/4" by like 3".  I used the solid night of navy twine to wrap around 3 times on top of the dsp and tied it in a bow.  I did round my right bottom corner of my card with the project life corner rounder.


I am happy that this stamp set is not on the retiring list from Stampin' Up! I need to make some more cards with it! Hurry though...and check the PDF because other than stamp sets when it is gone, it  is gone, gone, gone and stamp sets will be gone May 31st.  You don't want to wait on consumable items....if you want them, get them now!

Wednesday WOW...mini pouch holder


I was so excited when I got a cute little pouch holder with a bone folder that had my name on it from Sandi Flowers.  And so I had to take down the dimensions and try my hand at it.  Last Wednesday,  I had a Stampin' Up and Tupperware BINGO at my house and we gave these to all our participants.  The folded paper inside has a list of 25 ways you can use a citrus peeler. 

I cut the fruit stand designer series paper at 9 3/4" X 2,"  Score at 31/2." I corner rounded all the corners with the Project Life corner rounder.    And about 15" of mossy meadow stitched satin ribbon wrapped around twice and tied in a sweet little bow!

Map it for You Mondays with a CAS(E) this Sketch...


One of my favorite sketch blogs...CAS(E) this Sketch has a FAB sketch this week!
 And I just had to use it to make my card for my post today.

As soon as I saw it, I thought of my cloud dies in the Lift Me Up Bundle from the Occasions catalog and the Carried Away DSP that is part of SALEABRATION.  I haven't given any of it away that I have earned! I might be hoarding it!!! I will miss it when it is gone!

Here's my card that I created using the sketch...

Love the simple sketches at CAS(E) this Sketch that makes such a great card in no time at all! I used the Carried Away Designer Series Paper, and the Lift Me Up Bundle.  The whisper white card base was cut at 41/4 and scored at 51/2.  I cut 3 large clouds, 1 medium cloud a heart and a stamped air balloon in night of navy from the thinlit dies.  I used stampin dimensionals on the medium cloud and the hot air balloon.  I topped it off with the washi tape from the playful palette collection and rounded the bottom right hand corner of the whisper white.   The greeting was stamped in tuxedo black memento ink using the Lift Me Up stamp set.

two for tuesday!

Stella reared her ugly head today in Pennsylvania.  I spent several hours outside shoveling! Ugh!
And I already know I have a 2 hour delay to start with tomorrow! So, I thought I would post tonight too! Hope that's OK! I am thrilled to see my view count.  Today wasn't as high as yesterday, but almost...just a little under 1,000 views! I am humbled and honored even though no one comments! :)
This past weekend I spent the whole entire weekend making cards and these two beauties that I am going to share with you were part of my stack I completed on Sunday morning!

I happened upon this sweet little sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! and as I was thinking...in my head I thought... well...if I do this with designer series paper...I need to cut 2 at the same time and I might as well make 2 cards with my cuts! Hopefully, my directions will make sense because it really is a simple card to put together.

I made this one first...
I cut a piece of crumb cake at 41/4X 11 and scored at 51/2.  I did ink the card up a bit with crumb cake classic ink pad.  I took 2 pieces of tasty treats designer series paper and cut them at 41/4X51/2.  You will want to make sure the way you want to lay the papers on the card the designs are both facing up.  Then, I laid them on my cutter diagonally just kind of eyeballing and comparing it to the sketch.  After that, I carefully made 2 more cuts again looking at the sketch to help me to see where I should cut.  Then, I placed the larger piece of paper on my card front first and attached it.  After that it was easy to place the smaller pieces.  Next, I cut out 5 sweet from the sweet cupcake thinlit dies using the tasty treats designer series paper, stacked and glued them together.  Then I stamped hope it was from the sweet cupcake stamp set on whisper white cardstock, cut them a part and placed the sweet and hope it was on the diagonal of the card.  Finally, I wrapped the black baker's twine around the top of the card and tied it in a bow.

And the partner card...
I did the same exact thing for this card but used soft sky cardstock and soft sky classic ink pad!
I also used tasty treats designer series paper to cut out the word sweet on both of the cards.

Here's the supplies I used to make the cards...
