It’s your day to Sparkle

2017_05_29Youre a Gem_PPIMG_1442 For today’s card I combined the Stampin Up Jar of Love #141587 stamp set with the You’re a Gem stamp set from a My Paper Pumpkin kit to make this cute jar of gems.  To finish, I blinged it up with glitter tape and rhinestones because a girl can never have too much sparkle in her life!

Summer Smooches-Day 9

Today is the 9th day in my Summer Smooches card cafe and I think it is a real gem.  The mini purse was cut using the petite purse die #125606 and a piece of Summer Smooches DSP #125409 from the new Stampin Up 2012-2013 IBC.   The sentimentis from the You’re a Gem #122270 stampset. I added basic rhinestones to glam it up and and a bow from 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon in daffodil delight #119254.  I have made this same card using other pieces of the Summer Smooch collection and it is just as sweet.

Kits (not including the stamped images) for this card and the rest of my Smooches cafe cards (13 designs in total)are available as a kit for $3 each plus S&H.  So over the next several days, I will have more of the designs available. If you have missed the previous cards in the Smooches cafe be sure to go back and look at the other designs, starting on my blog on June 1st.  So if you want a specific kit, email me and I will tally all the designs you want and ship them at the end.  If you want to buy all 13 card designs the cost is $30.  Hurry this offer is only available while supplies last.

Queen for a Day

Continuing with the doily workshop today I am featuring Cammie’s over the top card.

 The queen for the day focal piece detaches and is a ribbon necklace.  The main piece is the largest  beveled window pane and stamped with the You’re a Gem stampset. The stamped image was attached to the back beveled window piece using StampinUp adhesive sheets.  The background was  stamped with whisper white craft ink on mambo cardstock using the perfect words stampset.  the Hello Doily was stamped with mambo ink on pumpkin pie cardstock and hand cut. The border strips were cut from flirtatious DSP and pumpkin pie cardstock using the tasteful trim Bigshot die.  This card is a true keepsake  and wowed the customers.

Color Coach Combo Challenge #3- Wisteria Wonder

Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant and Lucky Limeade are the 3 colors that make up  creative combination #3 that our new designer and Cammie’s downline, Lara Kirchner selected for today’s amazing challenge.  Today’s 4 cards are all predominantly flower cards.  Could it be that the lovely pastel  wisteria wonder makes us envision a flower theme.  Lara’s design was featured around the ala carte triple treat flower and the coordinating Fancy Flower and 5 petal punches.  Cammie’s extensive layered look was centered around an “inchie”layout  that is softened by a garland spread of distressed wisteria flowers.My inspiration for the wisteria challenge was the “he loves me, he lovse me not” daisy.  Yvonne’s card simplistic  layout features the blossom petals builder punch.  Stay tuned tomorrow for Yvonne’s Pear Pizazz color coach challenge.
