Cupcakes and Carousel, Layered Letters Banner

I adore making things for and with my Granddaughter Ivy and I just couldn't resist making a banner for her room. Many of the products I have used are saying Retiring on May 31st - Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Paper Stack, Carousel Birthday, Layered Letters Alphabet, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and Calypso Coral Baker's Twine. I stamped the balloon from Lift me Up and Layered Letters on Vellum. The Clouds also from Lift Me Up and Carousel Birthday were stamped directly onto the patterned paper. I cute the patterned Paper with the Layering Circle Framelits along with co ordinating card stock in Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Bermuda Bay Scallop circles. I added the holes with our hand held punches and treaded with the Baker's Twine and added the Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon bows to finish the banner off.

To order any of the products used to make this card you will have to be quick as the items on the Retirement List are selling out fast and will be Gone as of 31st May, simply go to my SHOP NOW button above to go to my Online Store or contact me to place an order.  Don't forget to use this month's Hostess Code.


I can also show you how to make my projects at a party with you and your friends. Just contact me to organise a time to enjoy the amazing benefits our hostesses can earn and spend on anything in our catalogues including our Occasions Catalogue.

Eastern Palace with Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers Card

I am totally blown away with Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers that are a part of the current Pre Release Eastern Palace Bundles available till 31st May. Their quality is second to none and like no other clear based stickers I have seen before. To make this Card I took a piece of the Fresh Fig paper from the Eastern Palace Speciality Paper and plonked some if the circular stickers onto it. I layered this piece onto some Tranquil Tide card stock and then a Thick Very Vanilla card base. I created the sentiment cluster by stamping "Hello" from the Eastern Beauty Stamp set also in the bundles in Tranquil Tide ink into Very Vanilla card stock punched it out with the Classic Label Punch, once again a layered it onto Tranquil Tide card stock added a matching Mini Tassels and Gold Tread.

These are the Bundles that are exclusively available during May 2017 so don't miss out

Succulents are so on trend right now and Stampin' Up! have certainly come to the party with some fantastic products in the Occasions Catalogue. I have made the Vertical Garden Project Kit here - everything is pre die cut for you. It is retiring on the 31st May so be be quick to grab yours!! All I did to to assemble the succulents as use my bone Folder to curl the leaves and adhere them together using Multi purpose Liquid Adhesive. I did the same for the roses curling them up. I used hot glue to adhere all the assembled flowers and succulents into the tray that also comes in the kit, I did add a touch of Wink of Stella to the leaves and petals for extra something. I stamped the Banner using the Double Take Stamp set and leaves from Crazy About You in Calypso Coral and Tip Top Taupe and added the ribbon included and it is ready to hang!!

Enjoy Today - Eastern Palace - Eastern Beauty and Eastern Medallions Card

 I cannot tell you how in love I am with the Eastern Palace Suite. I wanted to show case the beautiful Eastern Palace Speciality Designer Series Paper. You do get two speciality foil pieces but here I have showcased the statement pattern that is inspired by peacocks feathers. I have used both sides on the pattern as the base if the card. The colours shown in this card are 3 of the new 2017-2017 In Colors Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, and Fresh Fig along with a current 2016-2018 In Color Dapper Denim.

In the Big Shot I used the Flower Framelit and the Petal Thinlit together to cut out the flower using the Magnetic Platform too keep them from moving in Fresh Fig card stock . I love how the Thinlit die makes the partial cut to create to petals. The flower centre is a soon to be released Faceted Gold Gem, they are just so special and sparkly. Next I stamped the sentiment and punched with 1" Circle Punch adhering it with dimensionals to the card. I added Ruched Dapper Denim Ribbon.

These are the Bundles that are exclusively available during May 2017 so don't miss out

"BE YOU {TIFUL}" Flower Patch and Polka Dot Embossing Folder Card

I shared this card with you last month and from that one sheet wonder I was able to die cut some additional flowers using the Flower Fair Framelits which will be soon retiring in the Big Shot to make this stunning card. I have used the Polka Dot embossing folder which I also have to sadly say goodbye too at the end of this month as a base for the card, layered the flowers and leaves around the frame stamped the sentiment also from Flower Patch stamp set which is also retiring and added a small piece of silver ribbon and Rhinestone to finish the card off.

Eastern Medallions with Eastern Palace Paper Card

I love when our Stampin' Up! products are more than meets the eye. Our Eastern Medallion  Thinlits are certainly one of these products, a number of the Thinlits in this set partially cut to create flower like petals like the one below that I have cut in Gold Foil. I then used the Layering Circle Framelits to cut it out. I layered a piece Lemon Lime Twist Card stock under the gold piece so it peeks through. On the Lemon Lime Twist card base I layered Fresh Fig card stock and a few paper from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper.

These are the Bundles that are exclusively available during May 2017 so don't miss out

Pieces & Patterns with Pick a Pattern DSP - International Blog Highlight May 2017 - Masculine Card

Today I am participating in an International Blog Highlight. The Theme is Masculine. I created this card using products from the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue which Launches June 1st. I started with the Pick a Pattern Paper and co-ordinating Piece and Pattern stamp set. I kept it all fairly simple by matting my chosen paper in co-ordinating card stock in Basic Black and Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo. I did my stamping in Basic Black on both Sahara Sand and Whisper White card stock and punched using the co-ordindinating circle punches adding them with Stampin' Dimensionals all on a Sahara Sand card base.

The top 10 partcipants in the Blog Highlight get to go on a Blog Hop together. So please vote for me!!!
