Pretty Kitty Hello Card

Hi Everyone, I've got another card for you today. This was one that I started on Friday as I just wanted to color with the new watercolor pencils. I had no clue what I wanted to do with the card itself or how I wanted to lay it out. I just wanted to color the cute kitty and try out the pencils. 

It took me til' Sunday to get inspired with the design and was flipping through my DSP when I came across this adorable pattern from the Blooms and Bliss Collection. 

Out I whipped some dies and card stock and tada! I think it came out super cute. 

The instructions for this card can be found here: 

Here are the supplies used to make today's card.

Well that is all I have for today. I hope you are having a great day. See you back here soon.

How To: Window Box Thinlits (Stampin' 101 Video)

Hi Everyone, Welcome back. 
Before we hop into today's video, just a reminder for anyone thinking about joining the Hostess Club. There are a few seats lift in a group if you'd like to join in. See all the details about the Hostess Club HERE. 
Now for today's video. I mentioned in a video I posted on You Tube on Friday that I'm returning the Stampin' 101 video series. I'm really excited about this series coming back as I love doing How To videos. Let's rock out with the Window Box Thinlits die! Enjoy!
The supplies used for the 3 projects shown in the video are listed below.

These boxes would make great party favors, treat boxes for valentine's day, or even toss in a battery operated tea light for some cute home decor. 
Here are more photos of the 3 projects. 
This first box is my favorite. Sahara Sand card stock is a staple in my SU! supply arsenal. 

The next box is super cute. Gotta love the little heart window. The flower on top is made from the Succulent Framelits Dies you can find in the Occasions catalog and Pink Pirouette Card stock.

And finally this is my all time favorite way to make the most out of a die set like this. A card...It came in hand this past weekend when I needed a quick card for my great nieces 2nd birthday.

Here are the supplies used to make today's projects.

Sealed With Love (One Stamp set, Three Cards Series)

Today's share is a new series I'm starting called One Stamp Set, Three Cards. I'll be posting these weekly here on my blog and eventually we'll make this a video series. Stay Tuned!

We're using the Sealed with Love stamp set that you can also get as a bundle from the Occasions Catalog that includes the coordinating dies. Super cute set for Valentine's Day. 

I've created an instructions sheet for these cards that you can download HERE
And you can see the supplies I used with links down below.

The first card is a 4-1/4" card that I stamped with the small hearts stamp in Real Red ink and the I Love You sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut those adorable hearts with the coordinating die set from the Occasions Catalog in Whisper White card stock and then added a small linen thread bow. I love these bows for adding a little bit of texture to a card. The pattern paper is from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) pad. 

The next card is a standard size card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") with Whisper White Yardstick.

I used Real Red cardstock to create a mat piece for the Whisper White cardstock that I embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder. Using the coordinating dies I die cut the small envelopes with DSP from the Sending Love Paper Pad and the notecards with Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the small hearts border that I used in the first card on the mini notecard with Real Read ink and added the sentiment Sending Love with Memento Tuxedo black ink. One envelope I closed and tied with a ribbon. For the last envelope I added the notecard that I stamped in Real Red ink with the little hearts cluster.

The last card is another standard size card. 

The card base is done in Whisper White Cardstock. I thought it would be fun to stamp out my own pattern paper. Before I did that, I die cut that really cool heart border from the die set on the right, then stamped my background using the cute floral heart with Blushing Bride Ink and for a pop of color I added a little filler stamp with Real Red ink. I love the color combo. The sentiment Hello Love was stamped in the Memento Tuxedo Black ink to make it pop off the page. 

So those are my cards for this first post in the series. 
Here are the supplies I used to make this card.

Thanks for stopping by today. See you back here soon.

We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board {Video}

Hi Ya'll, Today I'm sharing a video of the We R' Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board. I tell you this board is fabulous for any project you are working on...Project Life, Cards, Scrapbook Layouts. The projects are endless with this. I found it really easy to use and got the hang of it quickly.
Here are a few Pins from Pinterest of projects others have done that might inspire you as well.

I made this card with the Frame Punch Board using goodies from my recent haul video.

I started with a top folding card base of Neenah Solar White 110LB card stock. (Why does the computer keep changing card stock to yardstick? grrr I mean really...I can't make it one word no matter how hard I try?) Using pattern paper from the Crate Paper Flora collection and die cutting it with Mama Elephant's Sew Happy Dies, I created a mat layer as well as the tag for the sentiment with Neenah Solar White 80LB card stock. Using paper from the same collection I made a frame and popped that up with some foam adhesive. I finished it off with a little bit of seam binding and sequins from my stash.

Here is today's video: Enjoy
