Free as a Bird Trio

Greeting cards and a 3D treat holder created with the Free as a Bird stamp set. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #water coloring, #Bird Ballad DSP, # Fun Fold Cards

Facebook Live was so much fun last night.  I created three projects for my followers using the Free as a Bird stamp set.  I believe they especially loved the Bridge Fun Fold Card.  If you missed the live, you can view it here.

I am happy to say that the Free as a Bird stamp set is being carried over to the new annual catalog.  However, the Designer Series Paper is not.  That includes the Bird Ballad DSP as well as the Parisian Blossoms DSP.  I would recommend that you grab it while you can.

The first project I created was the Hello card.  I water colored the image with an Aqua Painter.  For some texture and interest, I created a nest out of Spanish Moss that I purchased at a local craft store.

The second project is a fun fold card.  I water colored one of the birds, while I fussy cut the other out of the Bird Ballad DSP.

If you wish to write a personal note, I added a piece of Whisper White on the back for that purpose.

Finally, the 3D item is a treat bag.  The actual size is 3-1/2 X 1-1/2 X 4-1/2.  It is a great size for a gift or treats.

Ornate Garden Trio

Birthday card & Thank you card created using the Ornate Garden Suite. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, Treat Holder, #Stampin' Blends

Wednesday is Facebook Live.  I create three different projects using a single stamp set or bundle.  Last night I focused on a new suite that is our new and upcoming Annual Catalog.  It is call the Ornate Garden Suite.  The suite includes two different bundles, Designer Series Paper, a Dual Ribbon Pack, an Embossing Folder and Gilded Gems.  

The first card is a birthday card.  I embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and water colored on the Fluid 100 Water Color Paper.

Next up, I created a Thank You card using the daisy stamp included in the stamp set.

Finally, I created a treat holder.  Why not make a bunch of these up and give them to those essential workers at grocery stores, gas stations, post offices, hospitals, first responders, or any other essential worker you can think of.

Country Home

Country Home cards & Pillow Box for Facebook Live, colored with Stampin' Blends markers.

I like to create several projects with a single stamp set.  I used the County Home stamp set for my Facebook Live presentation last Thursday.  If you didn’t see it, you can watch the replay here.

I created two cards using the same image.  The first card, I stamped the image twice.  Once upright, then reinked and stamped it a second time upside down.

For the second card, I stamped the image once and added the can.

The final project is a quick way to alter the Kraft Pillow Boxes.  I used on of our Sponge Brayers and rolled on Mossy Meadow ink to change the color of the pillow box.
