Label Card Thinlit and Weekly Deals

Since the Label Card Thinlits Die is on sale in the Weekly Deals this week, I decided to make a Halloween card to showcase the die.

I turned the Label sideways.  I cut the bat's wings freehand and used the Owl Punch for the body.  He's hanging upside down on the branch from the Bird Punch.

There are some great deals this week in the Weekly Deals - even a stamp set from the Holiday Catalog!!  Whoo Hoo!!  And it's one I've had my eye on too.

Loving the Honeycomb!

I got to play with my new stuff and let me tell you, I'm loving the Honeycomb embossing folder!  I can see myself using it a lot!!
I wish now I'd gotten more stuff with my mini catalog preorder.  At first glance, I wasn't totally in love with many of the products in the catalog.  But as usual, as I've seen what others have done with the products, I'm wanting them!!  But for now, I'll just make do with what I have!

This card uses the Polka Dot Parade DSP  (pg. 164, #126902) in Rich Razzleberry along with Pink Pirouette card stock that is embossed with the Honeycomb folder.  The banner is made using the Hearts A Flutter Framelits Dies.  I also used a (SNEAK PEEK) item from the Sale-a-Bration catalog - can you spot it?  It is the Petite Curly Label Punch.  It works great with the stamps from Tiny Tags.  Other punches used are the Itty Bitty Punches (flower) and the tiny heart in the center flag from the Owl Punch.

And another card using the Honeycomb folder. It would be nice to have a punch that matched the Honeycomb though. But until we do here is what I did for my card - embossed the DSP with the Honeycomb folder and just cut the individual hexagons out  (I used Twitterpated DSP - pg 165).  Then I just glued them to a few of the embossed hexagons.  The stamp in the middle is another SNEAK PEEK from Sale-a-Bration called Vintage Verses.  It fits nicely in the Labels Framelit Die.  I really like the simplicity of this card.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday to me .....

This was taken last week during a Raft Up with friends on the Lake.
I don't think I shared this birthday card I made for a friend.  The funny thing is I made the card and was going to drop it by her house since she lives in my neighborhood.  But then I couldn't find it.  I looked everywhere for it.  I was pretty sure it was in my car some place because I remembered taking it to the car when I went to play cards one day.  But do you think I could find it?  Well, I thought, maybe I took it by her house and just forgot!  Anyway about a week or so later, I found it .... in the car under my seat!  She ended up getting the card about a month late!  Hey - better late than never, you know!

 I used Summer Starfruit with the Sahara Sand card.  The stamp set is "From My Heart" stamped and die cut with the labels framelit.  The background piece is a wheel called Etruscan Elegance Wheel.  I haven't bought or used a wheel in so long but I really like this one.  Now I just need to remember to use it more often!  Watch out Stamp Club - may be using it this month!  I also used the Color Spritzer tool (pg 119) to put drops of ink on the die cut image.  I sponged the die cut piece with Summer Starfruit and stamped the "enjoyed" separately and popped it up.

Here is a close up of the image and the flower.  The little flower was made using a Cuttlebug die that Marianne gave me for Christmas last year.  Makes a cute little flower. 

I hope you took advantage of the items SU put in their Clearance Bin this weekend.  I ordered a few things but a lot of stuff went fast!  I was having a problem with a few of the digital items that weren't showing up in my order with the right price.  By the time, I called SU and got an answer, several of the items I had in my order had already sold out  - like the magnet sheets and all the envelopes.  I was bummed but I still got some good deals - red grosgrain ribbon, Vanilla Velvet ribbon, heart punch, card stock and some digital items for pretty cheap.  I love those kind of deals.

I had a pretty quiet weekend.  I spent a lot of time finalizing my Christmas cards for the Christmas Stamp A Stack I am having in November.  I will be posting details about it if you live in the area and would like to come.

Totally Addicting .... Pinterest!

Have you discovered Pinterest?  Oh, so addictive!  I find myself "pinning" so many things.  Who knows if I'll ever go back and do anything with them - especially the recipes I've been pinning but it's a good creative outlet to look at what others like.  Here's a link to my fav's.

I saw a card on Pinterest which inspired this card I have made.  .I did  two versions of the card .  After I made the first one, I decided it would be cool to paper-piece the butterfly to match the DSP so that's what I did in the second card.  What do you think?

 I used a FREE stamp set from Sale-a-bration - Outlined Occasions and colored it in with my Pacific Point, Daffodil and Lucky Limeade markers.  I stamped the butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly with Pacific Point ink.   I used the Adorning Accents die and embossing folder for the various layers along with the DSP from Beyond the Garden.

This is the second version of the card with the butterfly paper-pieced with the Beyond the Garden DSP.

Here is the inside of the card - you can see a peek of the DSP when the card is closed - you just can't tell from above.

I have a great tip for you using the Framelits Dies from the mini catalog - specifically the Labels  but you could also do this with the Hearts.  You can emboss with them as well as cut the frames.  Here is what it looks like:

Here's how to do it:
Set your Big Shot Multipurpose platform so Tab 1 is on the bottom and add the following:
-Plastic Cutting Pad
-Rubber Flexible Crease Pad
-The card stock you are embossing
-Framelit with cutting edge facing upward (make sure it's facing UPWARD! if you place the cutting edge down it will cut through your card stock and maybe your crease pad)  Ask me how I know this??
-scrap cardstock or lightweight chipboard
-Standard cutting pad
-Shim or extra piece of copy paper

And here is another great idea -

What I did on this one was first emboss the cardstock with the Lattice Embossing Folder.  Then I took the two Labels Dies and inked them with Versamark.  Then I made the sandwich as outline above.  Isn't it cool?

Did you notice the "I've Been Published" on my side post?  Well, I was approached by Papers and Pixels  (an onlinecrafting  magazine) last August to write an article or a tutorial for them.  With us being in Texas in August and again in December, I put it off until after the first of the year to give me time to come up with something.  I decided to do a calendar tutorial using My Digital Studio.  The magazine covers a wide range of crafting projects - digital, paper crafting, scrapbooking, etc.  Subscription rates are very reasonable at $12.00 per year, or $1.50 per issue.  The back editions, September 2010 through August 2011, are available for free, and you can purchase the September 2011 through January 2012 editions individually for only $1.50 each. Here’s the link to subscribe to Papers and Pixels Online Magazine:   My article appears on page 97 if you decide to purchase a copy. 

Here are a few of the cards we are making this month during the February Club.

This card is a Wow and so easy.  It uses Mixed Bunch and the Blossom Punch from the Occasions Mini catalog.

This is another easy one.  It uses the Twitterpated DSP along with the Stripes Embossing Folder which you can get for FREE during Saleabration.  The colors are Blush Blossom and Island Indigo.

And here's another great one.  This uses several items from the Occasions catalog -  the Apothecary stamp,the Framelits Labels Die and the Adorning Accents Edgelits Die.  (The ribbon is retired.)
Hope you have a great week!

Craft Project Central Sketch #7

I had fun today creating several cards using the Sale-a-Bration stamps. To create this card, I used the sketch found at Craft Project Central.  One of my fellow NC demos (Regina) posted her card this morning in an e-mail so I decided to check out the site.  I love this sketch - very easy.  Most of the time, if you have a sketch, the rest of the card just falls into place.  I also wanted to use some of the Mocha Morning DSP.  The piece I used is flocked and so pretty up close.  It is such a rich, gorgeous paper and worked great for this card.  What do you think?

A close up of the flower - I stamped the flower twice, cut them out and layered them.
I used the new Labels Framelits (from SU mini Catalog) and the Big Shot for the black label.  I put Versamark ink around the edges and then poured gold embossing powder on them and heated it with the heat gun.  Love the effect!  The flower is also embossed with gold.  I stamped the flower twice and cut it out - layering the 2 pieces with dimensionals.

Stampin' Up products used for this card are:
  • Very Vanilla, Basic Black cardstock; Mocha Morning DSP
  • Creative Elements stamp
  • Black grosgrain ribbon, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Labels Framelets (from mini catty)
  • Versamark Ink
  • Rhinestone (in center of flower), Dimensionals
Have a great weekend!
