Everything is Rosy Thinking of You

From the moment I set my eyes on the Everything is Rosy product medley, I was in love. The Night of Navy ribbon edged in metallic Rose Gold and the Designer Paper with all the Rose Gold foiling is so beyond gorgeous. I have seen a lot of samples online, but have not seen one yet that included the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint. That paint becomes absolutely magical when you add it to a Stampin’ Spritzer with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol! I covered the Night of Navy layer in spritzes of shimmer. The kit comes with Rose Gold adhesive backed mirror embellishments, but I decided to use my hand-held paper punch (it’s a really old one from my junk drawer) and punched circles out of the Rose Gold Foil Paper after die cutting out the gorgeous leaf spray. Can you see the Rose Gold foiling on the Designer Series Paper sheet? That foiling is on one side of every sheet! I am in love with the Night of Navy ribbon, but since the background layer is that color, I decided to play it up with the lovely Melon Mambo Ruched Ribbon. It is so soft and easy to work with. I was able to tie a bow on my first try! There are several sweet sentiments to choose from in the stamp set (see below), but I chose to use one from the Paper Pumpkin kit Friends of a Feather (October 2018) because I’m sending this to a sweet person that needs some cheering up.

Horse Home Décor and Coordinating Card

I have a sweet daughter that loves horses. Imagine my happiness when I spied the new Let It Ride stamp set in the Occasions catalog on page 45. I knew it was perfect for her Birthday card and a home décor piece I’ve been wanting to make for her. I used a 9” x 9” Shadow Box frame I picked up at Michael’s. I love the look of the barn wood from the Holiday Catalog’s Festive Farmhouse DSP and knew it would coordinate perfectly. All of the supplies are Stampin’ Up! except for the horse die (Poppystamps). Her Birthday was yesterday, so I can safely share this with you today. Happy 19th, Hunter Danette!

Cool Treats Party Time

Last Sunday, I showed you a super fun popsicle card. Here’s another super fun card using the Cool Treats suite on pages 32 & 33 of the new Occasions Catalog. This one uses the same general layout of the previous cards. It’s my go-to layout.  With last Sunday’s popsicle card, I used Wink of Stella on the darker portion of the popsicle. This time, Hunter wanted me to use it on the lighter part of the ice cream cone. It’s perfect! How can you not smile when you see this?

Peachy Prayers

Two friends of mine recently underwent surgery. I wanted to make them cards and I knew that Peekaboo Peach was the color I wanted. I just love the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper and thought the smaller peach background was lovely. I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum to maximize the sentiment.  The Peekaboo Peach enamel shape heart was perfect.  Using the 3.5″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecards just adds to the adorableness.  Hugs and prayers to my invalids!

Shimmery Watercolor Butterfly

I decided to try something different today. I watercolored Flirty Flamingo ink onto Shimmery White cardstock. I used an Aqua Painter to first cover the entire piece of cardstock in water.  Then I brushed the ink in a sweeping motion onto the cardstock. After it dried, I die cut the butterflies. They turned out exactly as I hoped!  If you decide to give it a try, be sure to use a shim for your Big Shot sandwich – the Shimmery White must be slightly thinner than the standard cardstock. My sandwich was (from bottom to top): Magnetic Platform, Precision Base Plate, cardstock, die, shim (scrap piece of cardstock), standard cutting pad.

Shimmery Butterfly

I wish you could see it in real life. You can see the shimmer on the whole butterfly – as if it was covered in Wink of Stella. Here’s a close up that might help a little:

Ink:  Flirty Flamingo

Fiesta Tag Party!

I broke in more fun goodies last night – the Festive Birthday Suite (pages 10-11 in the Annual Catalog). I can’t get over how hilarious the llama is in this set – reminds me of the movie The Emporers New Groove. I’d totally watch it right now, if I had a working VCR! I promise the next card to showcase this suite will feature the llama.

This suite just begs for bright, bold colors and I was not about to disappoint. The adorable Designer Series Paper pulls all these fun colors together. And I’ll admit it. I…I mean Hunter… absolutely HAD to have this set just for the sentiment!  You’ll definitely be seeing these products being used again and again!
