Approaching Perfection

Feb. 17,2021

As of today there is only 11 days left to shop and earn free rewards with our wonderful Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration(SAB). This SAB catalogs ends February 28,2021.

When I first saw this set I didn’t particularly care for it; however I had reward points so I figured I’d get it. Well, was I ever surprised when I started playing with it. I grabbed some old DSP from my stash and decided to give it a try. OMG – as the kids say – The sentiments are so fun and as you can see within less than an hour I created these 5 cards. The sentiments truly inspired me.

This card uses the beautiful Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp
I love when I can create my own DSP with stamps. These bright and cheery colors are great.

Don’t you just love the sentiments?

If you need a catalog or if you need help placing your order please dont hesitate to contact me.

Happy Stampin

The package includes everything to create four beautiful cards. You just use your adhesive of choice and then decide who’s day you would like to brighten with a handmade card.

Here are the photographs of these projects:

Little Lady Bug Light Up Card

Thank you for stopping by this months Blog Hop for the North Carolina Stampin Up Demonstrators site. I know you will enjoy “hopping” on to all our creative demonstrators sites.

Welcome, today I have a cute card to share with you. This is one of my favorites and I am so sad to see it retiring and no longer available after June 3, 2020. But Ive already found many new stamp sets that I am looking forward to “playing” with. The more I “play” with them the more diverse I find they can be and they almost always spark my creativity. That’s just one of the things I love about Stampin Up!

The Little Lady Bug Stamp Set is featured on this card. I hope you enjoy it. I was inspired by fellow demonstrator Christi Wroe.

Here’s how I made it…

Start with a 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of Basic Black Card Stock. Cute along the 8 1/2″ edge at 4 1/4″ then score at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″”. This is a top opening card and we will make it into an easel card with a surprise feature.

At the 2 3/4″ score line we want to cut out half of an oval. I used the layering ovals die to do this. I placed the die so only half of the black would be cut.

Next I cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock 4″ X 5 1/4″ and I cut out the same oval in the center, cutting the entire oval. I cut a scrap piece of WW 5″ X 3 3/4″and sponged it with So Safron, staying lighter in the middle and darker along the edges. I then adhered this to the other WW back.

On the front I drew small dots with my So Saffron marker. I then stamped the large flower and the Lady Bugs that I wanted to use. I cut them out with coordinating dies and colored them with my Stamp and Blend alcohol markers. I used the fine tip glue to create the shine on the lady bugs dots. I love coloring with these two tone markers that blend beautifully. Really makes the colors POP!

I placed the dies around the oval, leaving the center open. I also stamped and cut out the sentiment “You’re cute as a bug’ and a slightly large circle from a scrap of basic black.

I adhered the card front to the black, being careful to only place my liquid glue on the folded section.

Next I went to work on the inside, first, in order to make this an easel card you need something to stop the card from closing all the way. To achieve this I stamped “Hey Lady’ on a scrap and sponged the edge in real red. I cut out several flowers and leaves from the same die set using Granny Apple Green and So Saffron card stock. Towards the top I stamped the sentiment Thinking of You and then to finish it off I added the so saffron dots with the marker , placing these along the top and the bottom.

And here is the finished card.

In order to create the surprise element I added a battery operated tea light into the easel section. Viola’

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog I hope you will subscribe and look forward to creating and sharing with you. I talked about Lady Bugs so much, I thought I’d show you my other Lady Bug creation. Several years ago I started, with my Granddaughters, a Lady Bug Garden by painting rocks to look like lady bugs. Now I like to add something new each year.

Happy Stampin
