Ornate Garden Triple Panel Thanks Card & Video Tutorial

Hello everyone!  Here is another card featuring the Ornate Garden Suite products.  Isn't it pretty?  It's so simple and easy too.

These three pieces of patterned paper are die-cut out of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper using the Ornate Layers Dies.  You can see the paper in my video below.  It has a nice assortment of beautiful flowers with Gold Foil.  The paper is great for any occasion.

The frame die-cut is also from the Ornate Layers Dies and is absolutely gorgeous!  I used a piece of Shimmery White Card Stock so it's really nice.

The embossed card front is done with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  So petty!

March Card Club Projects & 2020 Sale-A-Bration Third Release

Hello everyone!  Today I am sharing these projects from my monthly card clubs.  We had to make a major change to our Club workshops due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  Normally we meet at my studio once a month and enjoy getting together to make the projects but we decided to stay home to keep us safe.  Instead of getting together in person, we did virtually!  I mailed out the project kits to all members first and then we did Facebook Live!  It was about one hour long and for me I was happy to be able to connect with them this way although I do prefer in-person workshops:-).   Well, I hate to admit it but thanks to the COVID-19 I came out of my comfort zone to try Facebook Live and taking videos.  Also, I'm working to offer online classes in the upcoming months.  So stay tuned!

Timeless Tulip Happy Easter, Happy Spring Card

When I designed my cards earlier, I was expecting to do in-person workshops so this card shown above was not the original card I intended to do for my Card Clubs.  In order for me to follow Stampin' Up!'s policy (We are not allowed to send stamped images in a kit), so I had to make some changes to my original design.  The kits I mailed out had no stamped images.

Two tulips and leaves are punched out of the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper using the Tulip Builder Punch.  The center tulip is embossed with the Lace 3D Embossing Folder and embellished with a flower from the Frosted Flower Embellishments.  I also added a pretty bow using the 1/4" Gorgeous Grape Striped Ribbon.

I love the stitched rectangle and lace border dies from the Nature's Thoughts Die Set (also coordinates with the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set) which is one of the Coordination Product Release.

Here is the Step-Up version.  Instead of the embossed tulip in the center, I stamped one of the tulip images from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set.  I also stamped the stem images on the circle die-cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Well Dressed Happy Birthday Card

This card features two brand-new products from the Sale-A-Bration Second Release Brochure - Well Dressed Stamp Set and Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I love how versatile the Flowering Foils DSP is!  For this card I used my Sponge Brayer to apply Night of Navy ink for a quick change of color.  You can try this technique with any color you have!

The Well Dressed Stamp Set is a nice manly set of stamps.  When you can get it for free with a $50 order, why not?  Right?  I stamped the tie image with Night of Navy ink and then colored the collar with Light Smoky Slate Blends Marker.

The Basic Gray card stock layer is embossed with the Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder which is my new favorite embossing folder!

This Step-Up version card features another brand-new stamp set called Tags In Bloom from the Sale-A-Bration Second Release.  It coordinates with the Label Me Lovely Punch.  To be honest I was not sure how I'd like the stamp set until I actually used it to make another card.  This stamp set is pretty cool!  I loved the way these photopolymer stamps really stamp well!   I also stamped the stitched outline frame image and punched out with the Label Me Loverly Punch.  The sentiment is from the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set.  It's pretty simple and versatile!

Tulip Builder Punch Party Favor

Here is a super quick and fun party favor you can make using the Tulip Builder Punch.  I punched out 4 tulips out of Lovely Lipstick Card Stock and adhered to the all four sides of box.  The box is cut to 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" and scored at 3/4" on all 4 sides.  Make 4 slits on the score lines (2 slits on one side and 2 slits on the opposite side) and fold on the score lines to create a box.  Super easy!!!
