Freebie Friday - September 8, 2017

Here is the card I created using this week's Friday Freebie:

This card was created using another of those fun backgrounds I created on my play date with my stamping buddies (thanks Bev and Cathy).  The paper was sponged with Distress Oxide inks and then a stencil was spritzed with water and laid onto the stamped paper.   This is a really fun techniquet.

The card base is Crumb Cake and the solid layer is Calypso Coral.  The scalloped oval is also Calypso Coral.  The stencil I used is from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks from Stampin' Up!

Freebie Friday - September 1, 2017

Happy September everyone!  I cannot believe it is already September.  The kids are back to school, the evening temps are dropping below 60 and the leaves are starting to turn.  How did we get here so fast?

I have another Freebie Friday sentiment for you today.  Here's the card I made using the sentiment:

I saw THIS CARD while browsing my favorite blogs this morning and decided I just had to try it.  I love the colors!  The sunflowers are stamped (and stamped off) in Dapper Denim and the leaves are Old Olive. The leaves were punched with a new leaf punch.  Those of you who know me know that I NEVER fussy cut, but this card just would not be the same without that fussy cut layer and luckily these flowers are really easy to cut out.  I sponged the edges so there wasn't a lot of uneven white space due to my lack of skill with a pair of scissors! The stamp set is called Painted Harvest and it is absolutely gorgeous.  Both the stamp set and the punch are available for purchase on my Stampin' Up! website as of today!  The card base is Dapper Denim and the sentiment is layered on a die cut piece of Old Olive.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots (I love, love, love these) to add a bit of sparkle.

Rose Hill Grange - 8/26/17 - Cards

I intended to post these much earlier this week, but ... I lost them ... and then I found them!  So here they are:











As always, the demonstrators and the campers had a ton of fun!  We had several demonstrators that were new to this camp and hopefully they will be back in the future!  Lots and lots of creative fun was had by all.  The next camp is on September 30 and I think we are all really looking forward to it.  I will have more details on that soon!

I will be back tomorrow with a new Friday Freebie so please check in tomorrow!

Freebie Friday - August 25, 2017

I have a whimsical (and hopefully also encouraging) freebie for you today:

I created this background while playing with two of my Stampin' Up! buddies (thanks Bev and Cathy)!  We were experimenting with a technique we saw HERE using distress oxide inks, water and stencils.  It was so much fun!  This card is actually very, very sparkly in real life, but I couldn't quite get the camera to pick up on that.  Once the inking and stenciling was done, I sprayed with with a gorgeous shimmer spray and I really like how it turned out.  I created several backgrounds and you may see more of them cropping up here from time to time.

The card base is Daffodil Delight and the first layer is Melon Mambo.  I used a couple of leaves and a stamp from this month's Paper Pumpkin kit too!

Holiday Catalog Demo Swap

I finally settled on a design for my holiday catalog swap.  I chose the Carols of Christmas bundle and went through a couple different designs before settling on this one:


I got my inspiration from this card and just switched up a couple of things to make it more my own.  Here are the supplies I used:
I have to warn you that the border die in this bundle is a little tricky to use if you are trying to make a full frame.  The videos make it look easier than it is, but when you get it right, it is totally awesome!  I may end up using different (read larger) stars on this as well because gluing those tiny little stars onto the dsp may make me go blind, but it was fun doing the prototype!  I may also experiment with some Shimmery White cardstock or maybe a little Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle, we'll see.

I forgot to add the Delightful Daisy dsp into the materials table, but I am totally in love with all the patterns in this pack!  They are perfect for so many different types of cards!
