Knight in Shining Armor

Thanks for visiting me again today!

Today is the second in a series of posts using our Myths & Magic Product Suite!   Using one of our adorable pre-cut/pre-scored note cards with matching envelopes, I created this suite kid's birthday card!  The Knight is cut from the incredibly beautiful designer series paper.  The glittery banner behind him is from the 6 x 6 glimmer paper stack (also in the product suite) and of course the cloud paper is also from the designer paper package!

Using lots of dimensional, I popped up all of the different layers!  Below you will find my supply list!  My online store is open 24/7!  Click on the images or print out the supply list and shop away!!

Until next time...Happy Stamping!

Living Life in Flip Flops

Hey Stamping Friends!

Thanks for visiting me today!  Patty here..."Just stampin' in my flops!"  People think I'm crazy because I wear flip flops all year round!  I don't care what the calendar says, I don't care the solstice, I just care about having my feet being free and comfy!!!

For those that know me well, you know that I am an eternal summer girl!  My idea of a retirement home is a beach where I can live under a palm tree and have a place to keep my flip flops when my toes are in the sand!

Today I am sharing a project that I created using the Million Dollar set designed by Connie H.!  When I saw this set, of course, the first think I saw was the Palm Trees!!

Would you like to see the step by step on this project?  Would you like to know which pieces of this stamp set created this beauty?!  Then look no further!

The water was created using Pool Party ink and the image below that says water over the top of it.  The sand or beach was created with the same image just rotated 180 degrees and stamped in crumb cake ink.  The pebbles or texture added to the beach was also done with crumb cake ink.  I stamped the sky with the image shown below and used the marina mist ink for the sky.  The sun was done with the circular piece stamped in full strength in daffodil delight and slightly rolled the edge in tangerine tango to give a bit of sunset look!

Be sure to come back to my site so that you can see the other pieces I created with this fabulous stamp set!!!

Happy Stamping!

Magical Day - Mermaids

Hey Stamping Friends!

Are you like me?  Do you like projects with lots of "bling"?!!  The new product suite called Myths and Magic has just what you are looking for!!

The stamp set that is part of the suite is called, Magical Day.  In additoin to the stamp set, there are coordinating framelits, Designer Series Paper (which also has LOTS of bling/sparkle), washi tape that is 100% sparkle, and a 6 x 6 stack of glimmer paper!!!!

Today I am sharing the first of a series of note cards that I created for an upcoming kids class.  Each child will make the 4 note cards I designed! Today's project focuses on the adorable mermaids!  The larger one in the center is hand/fussy cut from the designer series paper while the two smaller gals on either side were done by stamping on whisper white cardstock with our Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and then I colored them with my favorite....Blends markers!!! The sparkly water was done using a strip of the bermuda bay glimmer paper that is part of the Product Suite!

Be sure to come back in the next couple of days!  I will be revealing the next card in the set of four!  Also, in case you missed by Blends You Tube video, I am sharing with you again!

Color Theory Memories and More

Hey stamping friends!

Got lots of Winter photos you want to share or scrapbook?  Why not consider the Memories and More Color Theory card pack?  I created this fabulous layout using the winter themed cards in this fabulous card pack!  Although this layout is winter themed, the card pack provides options for all seasons!

Using two sheets of 12 x 12 Night of Navy cardstock, two 2" x 12" pieces of whisper white, 4 of the cards from the Color Theory Memories and More Card Pack and one sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" whisper white cardstock, I created this two-page spread!  I added two of the silver foil snowflakes and some retired dapper denim ribbon! To make the bottom border look like snow, I tore the edges and added the clear wink of stella to make is shimmer and sparkle like fresh snow!

While digital scrapbooking is fun and simple, my customers still prefer the tactile look and feel of traditional scrapbooking!  These memories and more card packs make creating traditional pages a snap!  I hold a class on the second Monday of each month.  If you are interested in joining this group, email or message me today!

Below is a complete supply list!  Click on the items you want to purchase and you can order 24/7 through my online store!

My Deepest Thanks with Heartfelt Blooms

It is so unbelievable to me that ANOTHER year has gone by!  I know they say that time flies....but I would like it to slow down a bit!  There is so much to say and so much to do but rather than be long winded, I'm hoping that you will feel the appreciation and LOVE that have for each and every one of you that follows my blog, patronizes my business, and joins me in my classes to allow me to share what I love with you!  I am so thankful for all that you bring into my life and more than anything for your friendship.  May 2018 be filled with much love, laughter, and happliy ever after!

Today I thought it fitting to share a project with you that I created using the Sale-a-bration stamp set called, "Heartfelt Blooms".  This set contains an image that is a new creation for Stampin' Up!  The process for creating these images is in the process of being patented!  When stamped, the image looks just like a photograph!  I am sharing my completed project as well as some additional pieces that I stamped in different colors so that you can see the affects of this stamp!

Using the Sale-a-bration stamp set and my Stampin' Blends, I stamped the image using our Tuxedo Black Momento ink and then colored the image using the Pink Pirouette - light, Pool Party - light, Old Olive - Light, and Daffodil - Dark Blends.  I layered the image with Pink Pirouette cardstock and used dimensionals to add it to the Old Olive layer that is embossed with the 3-D folder called, Layered Leaves. 

PLEASE NOTE:  This stamp set can NOT be purchased!  It is a set that you can get for FREE when you place an order of $50 or more on my website!  Want this set?  Scroll all the way through this post and you will find the supply list!  Purchase the items and get the set for FREE!!
