Birthday Window

Good morning! Hope you are having a great week. We are here and today everyone will be back in school so I have a lot to catch up on. :) Today's card is one that was made with a little bit of this cand that. The base is one that I used to show how easy the new Framelits are to use. I just randomly cut a window out of the Soft Suede Card Stock and set it aside. Then when I had a few moments to stamp I decided why not finish that card so I added another Framelit from the Label Collection behind the card front so that it showed through the window. The card is stamped with the Apothecary Art Set and colored with Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade and Calypso Coral. I used a Vintage Brad, Victoria Crochet Ribbon and Calypso Coral Ribbon to attach the sentiment to the front of the card. I also used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder on the front of the card to add extra dimension. All the supplies are available to purchase through my Website just by contacting me.

I hope you enjoyed today's card, I hope to finish a couple more today that I will share with you tomorrow and Friday. Have a great day and as always thanks for stopping by, Tonya

Celebrate You!

Good morning! It is once again Monday and the new week has started. Today I thought I would share with you a card that we made at a recent workshop. It uses the new Send me Soaring Stamp Set that can be found on page 37 of the Occasions Mini. I altered the card that can be found on the same page just a bit and am happy with the result. The other supplies are Pool Party Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Lucky Limeade Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Wisteria Wonder Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Calypso Coral Classic Ink Pad, Basic Gray Stampin' Write Marker, Whisper White Card Stock, Small Oval Punch, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon and the Striped Embossing Folder which you can get for free during Sale-a-bration. The kites are stamped on scrap paper and then cut out and added to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals but the card is pretty simple to make. I am working on a 3d project that I hope to have ready to share by the beginning of next month but I will have another card to share tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by and as always have a great day, Tonya

Stylin' Stampin'UP! Blog Hop Sale-a-bration & Valentine

Hello and welcome to our February Blog Hop! I am so excited as this month we are featuring Sale-a-bration and Valentine's Day. Fun! Fun! Did you just get here from Rose's Blog or is this your first stop? Well, don't worry as the Blog Hop should circle you through all of our blogs. My first project features several of the Sale-a-bration options for this year. When the Sale-a-bration brochure was released I just knew I would have to get the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set and I love the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and the color combo is fantastic. Add the Everyday Enchantments Ribbon & Brad Pack and you have a wonderful grouping that you can make so many wonderful cards with. Each of these three items can be earned with a $50 merchandise order or you can earn all three free just for hosting a workshop of $400 or more. Sale-a-bration is a wonderful time!

Now let me give you the other supplies. The base is Soft Suede Card Stock that has been texturized with the Elegant Wallpaper Impressions Folder. The image was inked with the Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Peach Parfait, Calypso Carol, and Poppy Parade Stampin' Write Markers and was stamped on Very Vanilla Card Stock. The Very Vanilla is layered on Pool Party Card Stock before the Calypso Coral Ribbon is added and the Everyday Enchantment Brad. I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch to make a Very Vanilla piece to go above the Designer Series Paper and to finish off the card I added butterflies made with Poppy Parade Card Stock and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die. I love that the Embosslits Dies cut and emboss in one easy step. For my second project I wanted to do a Valentine's Idea and since I am always looking for a fun treat for my kids to give their class mates I decided to make that my focus. I really enjoy punch art and my boys do too. I used the Matchbox Bigs XL Die to make the boxes and will add candy to them when we decided what kind. I used Real Red and Pretty In Pink Card Stock and Patterns Designer Series Paper. I used My Digital Studio to print the sentiments so that I could have multiple ones for making lots of boxes. I can customize the color and size so easily with My Digital Studio. The sentiments are punched out with the Modern Label Punch and the Word Window Punch. For the punch art I used the following colors of card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, and Pretty In Pink. I used the following punchs: Boho Blossoms, Heart to Heart, Small Heart, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, 1/2" Circle, Large Oval, Extra Large Oval, 1 3/4" Circle Punch and Owl Builder Punch. I did add just a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the Penquin and the Owl for a little extra bling. My younger two boys really liked these and will be making some for all their class mates. I hope they are a hit with their class mates too!

Well, that is it for my Blog Hop projects. I hope you will continue on to Chelsea's Blog. If you for some reason get off course then you can always come back here and refer to the complete list. Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear from you! Tonya
