Bloomin’ Marvelous

DSC00567The inspiration challenge this week is an Etsy store called Octo-purse.  I was just cruising through this when I saw this cute little purse.  I love when looking at it, it looked like the butterflies and circle spelled WOW.  Then I saw this cute little purse and loved the colors so you put the two together and you get my card!

Some quick notes…the base of the card is Whisper White.  I added a Pacific Point Banner and a Tempting Turquoise Banner.  Next I took another piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Clouds Embossing Folder then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I then made a banner out of Gumball Green, added a strip of Pacific Point, cut into a banner and add to the card front.  I stamped the “you’re the best” using Basic Black on Whisper White then cut out using the Label Framelit.  I tied on the Turquoise button using Whisper White Bakers Twine and added the label to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the butterfly from Bloomin’ Marvelous using Gumball Green and Pacific Point, punched with the Bitty Butterfly and added to the card front using glue dots.

Window Pane Video

Welcome everyone to another edition of StamperCamper’s Video Corner!  I just love adding window panes to my cards and am often asked how I do it.  I’ve created this tutorial just for you.  The first part of the tutorial is how to make the window pane.  That lasts about 1 1/2 minutes.  I’ve been asked by some folks to show how I make my cards so the rest of this video just shows me putting the Bee Happy card together and I give the dimension for each of the layers.

To find out more about these other cards I have made using the window pane technique, just click on the card and it will take you to the post describing it.

Bee Happy

DSC00565So it is COLD and SNOWING outside…YUCK!!!  But the really nice thing is that I can stay inside and stay warm today.  I am so happy for that!

I got a new computer yesterday…WOOO HOOO!!!  So far this is just WONDERFUL!!!  So I’m trying out my programs I’ve downloaded and loading up pictures and all that good stuff.  So far…so good!

On Wednesday I did this fun little card and I thought I’d use the same sketch (with a little twist) for a card to warm you up for today.  Some quick notes…

The base of the card is Daffodil Delight 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  I took another piece of Daffodil Delight, ran it through the Hexagon Embossing Folder and added to the card base.  Next I took a piece of Daffodil Delight Polka Dotted dsp, layered it onto a piece of Basic Black then added to the card base (on an angle) using dimensionals.  I punched out four 1 1/4″ Scallop Circles from a piece of Whisper White and added to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped 4 bees from the Spring Sampler set using Basic Black on Whisper White, colored with the Daffodil Delight Marker, added some Dazzling Details to the wings, LET DRY, then punched out using the 3/4″ Circle punch.  I added three using dimensionals.  For the last one I stamped happy from the A Word for You set using Basic Black on Daffodil Delight and cut out using the large banner framelit, I added a second large banner in Basic Black, trimmed off the one side and added behind the 4th bee.  I then added this to the card front to finish it off.
