February Paper Pumpkin Unboxing and Alternate Project

Hi everyone!

CAN YOU SAY CUTTING IT CLOSE?!?!?!  Oh my word, I lost my crafting mojo yesterday after a long weekend of trying to get well, etc. I decided that today's video would be the February Paper Pumpkin Unboxing/Alternate Project video!  I had a couple of screw ups along the way...I don't call it crafting in real life for nothing!  However, I really, really love how the finished card turned out!


I used a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock and cut it at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it at 5 1/2. I pulled my 1", 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" circle punches, Night of Navy and Flirty Flamingo card stock. I also grabbed my full size Flirty Flamingo ink pad because I like to give my ink spots to my lil childrens at work!

I used the more general sentiment from the exclusive stamp set and I punched various sized circles from the paper I pulled!

Faux Neon Friday-Special Reason

Hi everyone!

I am back for the last day of my Inspiration Week!  It's Friday...so that means Faux Neon Friday! 

I am really surprised that I have been able to continue this series I love it and this may be my most favorite card so far!  Of course, I say that every week!

For this card, I used the Special Reason Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalog

I didn't incorporate all of the colors that I used in the past. I omitted Tempting Turquoise because I felt I had enough blue/green for the background of this card!  I stamped the leaves using Bermuda Bay and Cucumber Crush ink. I die cut the leaves with the coordinating framelits. I also cut out the skeleton leaves using the same color card stock.
For the flowers, I used Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight ink and stamped on the same color card stock for a tone on tone effect. I used the largest flower framelit to cut out the stamped flowers. I also used the skeleton flower framelit to cut out Pumpkin Pie card stock.

I stamped the sentiment and frame onto the die cut frame using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Of course, I had to finish this card with my favorite embellishments!  I absolutely love the White Perfect Accents and I really love how striking they are on this card!

What do you think? What would you have added to this card?  Let me know in the comments!

Guess what?!?  You can use the link below to print out the coordinating tutorial which includes a picture, supply list, dimensions and instructions!  You can also watch the video of me making this project down below or over at Youtube!

Inspiration Week #2-Special Reason CASE

Hi everyone!
 
I am back today with my 2nd card in my Inspiration Week. Today I want to talk to you about CASEing a card. CASE is an acronym for Copy and Share Everything. This basically means that when you copy a card, make sure that you share where you found your inspiration.
 
For the card I created today, I took inspiration from this card by Jenny Hall. I found this card on Pinterest and I really loved the simple design. I used several elements from this card to create mine. The Special Reason Bundle from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog is gorgeous. I love Jenny's card and I really love mine!
 
 
For my card, I wanted to use the new 6x6 Glimmer Paper. This is a Sale-a-bration item that will be available starting February 21st. You can earn it with a $50 order for my online store. 
 
 
I love the Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper. I paired them with Basic Gray for a very soft and feminine card. 
 
Instead of metallic thread, I used this die from the Swirly Scribbles Framelits. I love how it looks like a wreath with leaves. I think it pairs beautifully with the flower and stem.
 
I stamped the sentiment using Sweet Sugarplum Ink. I think this card turned out very lovely!
 
What do you think of the new glimmer paper? Let me know if the comments what you think!
