jar of love, bunch of banners, and lovely words thinlits oh my!!!


I remember seeing this quote several years ago and thinking what a fabulous way to wake up every morning! I actually have this quote hanging in my house now too! It helps me remind myself that wonderful things happen everyday in my life! And I am so grateful for those "wonderful" things on a daily basis!

Sometimes only picking one color and using white or monochromatic is a great way to get back to the basics.  Once we accumulate so much "stuff" we forget what it's like to just be beginning this addiction....I mean hobby! (lol) Today that's just what I did! I wanted to use as few as supplies as possible, but ahem(insert eye roll)....that did not happen!!!
I really must admit I do love the simplicity of the card and will probably make a few more like it, but using other colors!
I was looking at the sketch over at CASE this Sketch last night and this got my brain awhirling!


So...this was what I came up with!
I started with a whisper white 41/4 X 11 piece of cardstock and scored it at 51/2.  I also cut a piece of dapper denim cardstock at 31/4 X 23/4.  I also cut a 1" circle from the dapper denim cardstock.  Then I stamped with the heart from jar of love diagonally 3 times down the middle of the whisper white with the dapper denim.  Next I stamped the banner in dapper denim from banners from you and then stamped the sending you greeting from lovely inside and out inside of the banner.  It's a little off, but it'll do! I cut it out with the bunch of banners framelits.  Using the lovely words thinlits dies, I cut 4 hugs out in whisper white and then stacked them on top of each other adhering them with the tombo multipurpose glue.  I also cut the mini hearts in whisper white cardstock from the everyday jars framelits dies.  Please see card photo to put pieces together.  I used mini stampin' dimensionals to put the sending you banner on the card and then used the tombo multipurpose liquid glue to attach the hearts and the word "hug."

map it for you monday with a little banners for you....

Hello Monday and Welcome Back to another Map it For You Monday!
 I hope you had a fabulous weekend! 
Today I am here with you showcasing a sketch from
I was drawn to this sketch right away when I saw it!
 And I can see that this will be a GOTO sketch for me!!!

Of course I had to use the new 2017-19 incolors to make this card (love them)!!!
Do you have them yet? The lemon lime twist is definitely becoming a very fast favorite of mine! And these three colors together!!! Wowsers!!!

So, here's my card based on the sketch...


I started with a piece of 41/4X11 whisper white cardstock.  Then added the lemon lime twist 1/2 inch strip from the eastern palace designer series paper.  I also cut a 13/4" (when cut)" circle from the eastern palace designer series paper. You will need another 13/4" (when cut) circle cut from the berry burst color theory dsp. Then I cut a 2"(when cut) circle from the layering circle framelits dies out of whisper white cs.  I stamped on the circle with the banners for you stamp set using the lemon lime twist, berry burst and powder pink classic ink pads.  I then cut out a banner with the banner die set in the lemon lime twist cardstock and stamped happy birthday in stazon with happy birthday gorgeous stamp set.  I cut off about 1/2 inch and then lifted it off the circles with stampin' dimensionals.  You can look at the photo of the card to see where to place the circles.  Such a sweet simple card where the greeting could be interchanged to make it so versatile!

sunday fun....with bella and friends!

A liitle inspiration for you today! Or maybe for me?!
I think as adults we forget that we should imagine! However, imagining is only a beginning! There is much work to be done once we imagine if we want it to happen! However, imagining is a start! 
And I'm celebrating the fact that I'm imagining!  :) 


 It's Sunday and I'm posting! It is summer vacation for me for sure! Usually on Sundays I am preparing lesson plans and grading papers and getting ready for my 2nd grade friends! But it's SUMMER!

 I really want the This Little Piggy stamp set that is in the new 2017-2018 Stampin Up annual catalog, but I haven't gotten it yet! So, this morning I thought I would stamp and color using the adorable Bella and Friends stamp set that I do have! It's adorable! I was also looking over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and thought the sketch was so fun!.  


My card has the big circle, then you will see that my smaller circle is a cut out of Bella and a balloon.  The smallest circle is meant to be the cloud that Bella sits on.  I hope I didn't change the sketch too much!

Here's what I came up with...

I started with a base of 41/4 X 11 of whisper white and scored it at 51/2".  Then I cut a piece of crushed curry dsp from the color theory pack at 41/4 X 51/2.  Next I cut a 3" circle from soft sky cs using the layering circles framelits dies.  I stamped the bird and bella with balloon from Bella and Friends on a piece of watercolor paper and colored it with Stampin Up watercolor pencils and aqua painters.  I used the up and away framelits to cut out 3 clouds from whisper white cardstock and the heart using the berry burst from the color theory dsp.  I also used the hello stamp from banners for you and again used the color theory dsp to cut out the banner from bunch of banners/framelits dies.  Bella, the bird and the clouds they are on have stampin' dimensionals on them.  I also attached a stampin' dimensional to the heart and then just put snail on the rest of the greeting to adhere to the cloud.

fab Friday on Saturday! a little gorgeousness

I know it's not Friday, instead it's Saturday....and it's gorgeous here in PA!!!
So, I thought I'd share a little bit of gorgeousness with you! :)

How about this color combination...
I love it! It just POPS!
 And it is a color combination that can be used all year long!
So glad SU added lemon lime twist to the 2017-19 incolors!

Here's the card I made with the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous SU stamp set and the bow builder punch along with lemon lime twist new incolor with  crumb cake and night of navy added in there...
I decided to use the night of navy to stamp the greeting since it was a dark enough contrast and I thought it matched really well! I used stampin dimensionals to put on my homemade punched bow to lift it off the paper.  The designer series paper is from eastern palace specialty paper pack.  I cut about a 1/2" strip and placed it on the card instead of ribbon.  I thought it was a great alternative.
Below please find the sketch I used to make this card.  The measurements make it so easy to put the card together.


Hope you'll make a card using the color combination and/or the sketch and share it with me in the comments section below! If you don't have the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set....it's a versatile and amazing set that is growing to be a favorite of mine!

Wednesday Wow! Fixable/Beautiful Mistakes....

Today I want to show you how mistakes can be fixable/beautiful and actually be turned into an amazing card!

Yesterday I showed you this card...

Last week at my Come Stamp with Me event, I had stamped everything on the card.  Then I went to stamp the greeting and as I pulled the hugs greeting up off the whisper white cardstock, the block slipped out of my hand and went back onto the bottom of the card! Ugh!!! There was a black impression of the bottom with  hugs on it! I showed everyone how you can easily fix a mistake and turn it back into a usable card. We all make mistakes and instead of throwing out the whole thing, I always try to find a way to turn it into something else.  

Here's my fixer upper.... (lol)
I cut off the bottom in a diagonal with my paper cutter and then added the bow  and the circles with SU bow punch and circle punches.  The bows are so easy to make! Just punch twice and put it together.  I used the fine tip glue pen to put the bow together.  Use a very small dot of glue.  I used berry burst, powder pink and lemon lime twist SU classic ink pads.  The whisper white cardstock was cut at 41/4" and scored at 51/2".  I only used scrap pieces of  berry burst and lemon lime twist cardstock on this card.   I used the new SU lovely inside and out stamp set.  I am really glad I made the mistake because this card would never have been!:)

ohhlala....new 17-19 incolors!

Oh my goodness....where did May go?! Sorry that I was away or ghosting here, but I am back now! Having a full-time teaching job and being back in 2nd grade for the first time in several years was a little overwhelming for me at the end of the year.  That's what I love about Stampin' Up... it can kind of take a place on the back burner for a little while I do what I need to do.  Any other part-time job I would not have that freedom.  I miss it so much when I am not creating and it feels good to be back!

The new SU catalog is OUT and there are so many things I want!!! This is such an exciting time of year with new stamps, paper and ink colors.  However, ne of my favorite things about Stampin Up has always been the quality and their choice of ink colors and cardstock.  These new incolors for 2017-19 are everywhere in the fashion world, so it is no surprise that they have made it into the crafting world.  So many great ways to just put these colors together!

Today, I am showcasing a card that I made with 3 of the colors!

It's a very simple and easy one layer card with very little embellishments, but it is so eyecatching.  The colors make this card pop!

All I did was stamp the sunburst from the new Lovely Inside and Out stamp set randomly on the front and back of the card and then used the archival basic black ink to stamp the greeting.  I corner rounded the bottom and punched 3 1/2" circles out of the lemon lime twist, berry burst, and powder pink cardstock. 


Then I had to dress up the back for a little extra fun!
