Meant To Be and Forever Lovely

Good day!  Do you want to know what I believe?  I believe that the Meant To Be Bundle and the Forever-Lovely bundle is MEANT TO BE.  I think combining these bundles creates beautiful things.

I know that I had said a while back that I was going to put the Meant to Be bundle aside and start using other stamps more. And I did, I started using the Forever-Lovely Bundle.  When using the two sets I quickly realized that these two bundles really compliment each other.

Now that Valentines Day is only a few days away I had to start thinking about making a card for my husband.  I know this card is not masculine in any way shape or form but it’s a valentine.  Valentines are a card of love so that is what I was trying to express….LOVE!

This card is very special just like Kenn.  My husband saved me 24 years ago and continues to save me today.  So this card will accompany his favorite red heart candies from See’s.  I going to buy him so many red hearts that he may get sick of them!

 

I knew I wanted to make a pocket on the front of Kenn’s Valentine.  So I cut out one full heart and then another heart just over half way.  The heart that you cut almost in half is used to make the pocket.  I added adhesive strips to the back of the cut heart to get height.  Now I can pack the pocket full of loveliness.  The little flower that is front and center on the heart was cut out using Whisper White cardstock and colored with markers.  Then Wink Of Stella was used to add shimmer.

The long stem flowers are from the Forever-Lovely bundle.  The colors used are  Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive and Whisper White.  I used the new floral folder to get the texture that most cards need.

The picture below shows you the depth of the pocket.

 

Here is a side view

You can find that adorable silver shredded paper in the SU clearance rack. I’m so happy it’s still available.

Well, what do you think?  Would you give your man a card like this?  Kenn knows I’m a girly girl so I think he may expect his card to be full of foofoo.

Thanks for visiting

For some reason, the punch I used is not listing in the product list.  It is called the Decorative Ribbon Boarder punch and you can find it in the annual catalog.

Forever Lovely card #3

Good afternoon friends,  Today I’m posting the third card that I made using the Forever-Lovely Bundle.  

This card is similar to card #2, I just changed the sentiment, which I love by the way.  I also changed up the ink colors and ribbon placement.  The use of the thinlits and the stamped roses is the same.

The card base and the sentiment ink color is basic gray.

I’ve had a great time using this beautiful set.  I gave my sister-in-law a birthday card using this bundle.  She absolutely loved it.  The intricate design amazed her.  This bundle is amazing.  Simply put it is just PRETTY.

Thank you for taking a peek.

TOMORROW Feb 7th is OPEN HOUSE, I hope to see you there.

I open at noon and there is a very cute make and take ready for those who have RSVP’d.  DSP is the focal point of this make and take…. I know my guests are going to love it.  I will aslo be demonstrating how to use this bundle and the Stamparatus.

Forever Lovely Card #2

Good afternoon!  As I watch the news I hear of all the extream weather patterns around our country.  Here in California, the weather is so nice.  As I’m writing this it has started to rain.  We need rain so that is a very good thing.  California is at 100% of normal rainfall so far this year so no drought for us this year.  Whew!

Yesterday’s weather was so beautiful that I wore a tee and a light sweatshirt.   But as the day went on I had to remove my sweatshirt,  I actually got warm.

This great weather reminds me of spring, my second favorite time of the year.  I guess the feeling of spring put me in the mood to design the three cards that I’m sharing with you this week.  Yesterday I shared card #1.  Today I’m sharing card  #2.

I sent this card out to one of my besties.  She needs a little pick me up right now so this card was made with love just for her.   

Here is the HOW TO:

I started this card by cutting my first layer piece @ 4 X 5-1/4 and placing the thinlit at the bottom.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot to cut out the fancy overlay pattern that you see here.

Next, I placed this piece into my Stamparatus with the left edge at the 4″ mark.  Then I grabbed my stamps.  First, I placed the floral stamp onto the cut-out area.  Make sure you are lining them up with the flowers that are cut out.  Now closed the Stamparatus plate onto the stamp to grab it.  Remove the top layer piece and lay down a second layer piece ( the second layer piece needs to be the same size as the first layer piece) in the same exact place (the 4-inch mark).  Because your cardstock is in the exact place the first one was you are ready to stamp.  Ink up your floral stamp and stamp.    Now lay the greenery stamp onto the floral images that you just stamped lining them up.  Close the other Stamparatus plate and grab the greenery stamp.  Ink up your stamp and stamp.  Voila!  You have a line of gorgeous roses among sprigs and greenery.  NOW for a total wow, lay your first cut out layer piece over the top.  YES! This is truly OVER THE TOP beautiful.

I stamped the sentiment and then ran the cover layer through the Big Shot using the subtle folder.

I added three rows of ribbon to the top of the card and tied on a little knot.  Now, adhere your two layer pieces together.  All that you need now is your card base.  After looking at the front of the card a Whisper White card base is what I selected.

I will be demonstrating this technique at my OPEN HOUSE.  OPEN HOUSE  is on  Feb. 7th, at my place from noon until 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome please come!  Come check out what this stamping thing is all about.  I love OPEN HOUSE, it is a time to stamp with friends and a time to meet new friends all while crafting, snacking and drinking coffee or tea.

I’m really enjoying this bundle, it is gorgeous.  I know you will love it too.  Feel free to go to my online store and place your order.  It is SALE A BRATION so with a $50.00 order ( before shipping and tax). You will qualify for free merchandise.  Let me know if you need my help.  I’m here for you.

Forever Lovely

Hello friends, and welcome to my world of stamping.  Yesterday was a good stamping day.  When I say that I mean I made a lot of cards.  In fact, I made 4 cards and a banner.  I showed you Mikie’s card yesterday and today I’m showing you one of the other three that I created.

Above is card #1.  I want to focus on the focal point here.  See the little lace-like detail at the bottom of the focal point.  Can I tell you this thinlit is right up my alley?  OMGosh it is so lovely just as the name of the bundle implies.    And those NEW Rectangle Framelits absolutely a must have.

After cutting out a stitched rectangle I ran the piece through the Big Shot using the subtle folder.  That folder is the folder that I use the most.  It is subtle and gorgeous.  If you put a piece of cardstock next to a piece that has been embossed using this folder you will see a huge difference.  So, I use it all of the time.  It will step up your cards immediately.  Next,  I layered all of my cut out thinlits pieces and the stamped and cut out rose onto the rectangle.

Let’s talk about that rose.  I stamped and cut out three roses.  Then I cut them into three layers. One stayed like it is orginally, the next one I cut down to the smaller inside of the rose and the third one I cut out the center.  Then I crumpled each piece smoothed them out slightly and then layered them together using dimensionals.  Now when I dissected the middles of two of the roses I saved the edges and used them underneath the rose.  Now you have a ruffly 3-D rose.  It’s so pretty.

Back to building the focal point, all I did was lay out the rose and leaves until I liked the way they looked and using glue dots I set them all in place.

The sentiment was stamped using basic gray ink and was stamped on another stitched rectangle.  I didn’t run this rectangle through the folder just to ensure the wording was absolutely clear.  I added a little flower ( this flower is also a thinlit in the set.  And all three pieces cut out at one time) lastly I added the black facet in the middle.

All were mounted on a layering piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The folder I used for the texture on this piece is called Pinewood plank.

Now all that is left to do is to choose a color for my card base, (I know I work backward).  When I look at my card front it tells me what color I should use for the base.  For this card, it said, Basic Gray.

Tomorrow I will share card # 2 so make sure you come back.

Thank you, Liz and Debbie, for your recent comments.  I love hearing from those who visit with me.

 

NOTE: Seaside folder was not used, I added it to the product list in error.
