High Tide

Hello friends,  I know it’s been over a week since I’ve posted.  All I can say is I guess life caught up with me so I took a little hiatus.  BUT…… I’m back!

My mojo was on hiatus too, so I used my resources and found a card that I love.  The creator of this card is Tina Zinck.  When I case a card I usually add my own little touches, however on this one it’s a full on copy.

I will be demonstrating this card at Saturday nights SU BUNCO.  It will be the make and take project also.  Because this card has so many steps to it ( not hard just a lot of steps) I decided that I will have this card almost completely finished for my BUNCO guests.  All they will do is watch my demo then add the bakers twine and assemble.

I hope YOU are one of the 12 ladies attending Saturday nights BUNCO, I think everyone is going to love watching this demo and taking home this card.

Eastern Palace Suite

When you see the NEW early released Eastern Palace Suite by Stampin’ Up! you will think Eastern of course.  This suite was inspired by the colors of a peacock and the elegance of a palace.  While I like elegant ( a lot ), it’s in my nature to try and change things up a bit.  With that said check out the samples I created.  These cards a definitely NOT what was intended to be created with this suite.

The sample above focuses on a bright summer daisy, very crisp and clean.  The whisper white, dapper denim and crushed curry colors just pop of off the card. This card is a sweet note to send anyone anytime.  While the folder I used for the background is brick.  The brick done in white made me think subway tile.

Now the card below.  This card gets down to my country roots.  I love sunflowers, woodgrain, texture and the nuteral colors in the Stampin’Up! color family.  There is nothing Eastern on this card yet it was made with the Easter Palace Suite thinlits and stamps.

I hope my ideas peaked your interest, sparked your creativity or made you want to CASE them.

Now, baseball…. Yep that’s right you can even make a card that screams baseball with this set.  Check this card out.

You will find the circle stamps that I used to create the ball in the Eastern Palace stamp set, crazy huh?

.

Now this card is closer to the Eastern look, but what is special on this card is the doilie.  I used one of the thinlits in the Eastern Palace Suite to make this doilie more intricate then it already is.  The original gold doilies have a solid center.  I cut out the solid center using a thinlits.  I think it’s so so pretty.  I think this is a gorgeous thank you card.  The sticker on the envelope, the dsp and the tassel are part of the suite too.

Last but definitely not least another summer card.  This card is happy and bright.  Everything except the linen thread and the background folder are in the suite. I love how this flower cuts into the card stock and the petals lift off the paper.  All of the sentiments in this stamps set are adorable.  I’ve stamp my envelopes, the front of the cards and the inside of the cards with the sentiments in this set.  Stampin’ Up! Did a really good job on this one for sure.  The stamps  are photopolymer so the curved verses can be straighten if you want a straight line verse.  That is what I did to make the stem of the sun flower.

Thanks for visiting with me.  I know this post was long but I just had to share all of the EASTERN PALACE SUITE cards I have on display in my studio.

You can order this product in MAY…. Contact me for details

Detailed Floral Thinlets

Yesterday at my monthly OPEN HOUSE I was so inspired by all of my customers / friends.  Each one of them are so talented, fun to create with and wonderful woman.  I just love open house, we always have a great time.

Rina is working on wedding invitations for her niece.  She brought her sample with her yesterday and shared it with us.  OMGosh the invitations are absolutely beautiful.  I went crazy.  Here is a picture.

Rina made a separate RSVP card and the envelopes as well.  Rina’s niece is one lucky bride, these invitations are a treasure.

I was so inspired by Rina’s creation that as soon as I had a minute to myself today I went to my studio to create.  This Pocket Card is what I came up with.

On the inside I dublicated the fancy scoring around the edges of the insert to match the same detail that is on the front of the card.

I love the pocket idea, here is the front sentiment pulled out of the card.

The card with no insert

I love it, I embossed Happy Mother’s Day on these two cards so I can take them to the shop.  But you can stamp any sentiment on the front insert.

I think these cards are good ones for another Assemble Them Card Class, don’t you?  I will schedule it soon.

Thanks for stopping in!   Have a great weekend.

Cards in a Crate

May is not far away, so it’s time to think about celebrating Mother’s Day.  One thing you will need for sure is a greeting card.

This card sings Mother’s Day with a momma bird sitting proudly on her nest.

This card has a vintage flair.  It’s soft, feminine and has bits of gold to give the card a dressy look.

Both cards have a lot of detail, come see them both at OPEN HOUSE tomorrow, April 6.  I open at noon and close at 8 p.m

Come make these two cards and the adorable card crate too. You can change up the sentiments and make your cards for any occasions that suits you.

Isn’t the crate adorable?  My friend Dawn Haskell found it on Pinterest and shared it on Facebook. The original designer is Jackie Topia.  I fell in love with the crate and just had to share it with all of you.

Class date is April 22nd

Time = 1p.m to 4p.m, come anytime between those hours

Cost =  $20.00 minimum order that day.

Please,RSVP as soon as possible so I can make your packets.

Can’t make that date?  That is okay we can set another date just for you or I can send you the class in the mail.
