Pansy Pop Card


This card is so cute! What friend wouldn't love getting this card? I just can't get over how adorable it is. The stamp sets I used are Flower Shop (130942) and Banner Greetings (129714). The colors i chose are: Summer Starfruit (126991), Primrose Petals (126858), and Bermuda Bay (131171).

Here are my measurements:
Whisper White Card Stock: 7 1/4 x 5 1/2    Score at 3 inches
Whisper White: 2 1/2 x 7 1/2    Another: 3 x 5 1/2
A color piece for Bitty Butterfly Punch (129406)

First I stamped Bermuda Bay in a cascade down my 3 x 5 1/2 card stock.
Then I added the other colors. With the 7 1/4 x 5 1/2 I stamped my extra flowers so they can be punched out later. 

I then stamped my banner. I wish there was a punch for these, so i had to cut it out by hand. 
 I then cut around my cascade flowers and placed them on my card. it doesn't have to look perfect because once you punch out your extra flowers and place them on top with dimensionals you won't notice any mistakes you think you made. Don't forget to emboss your card. I used the Polk-dot folder. I can't find it right now so I don't have a picture, sorry! But emboss the smaller side.
 Don't forget to add a Bitty Butterfly and Rhinestones. I know those rhinestones always make a card sparkle!
Hope you have fun making this card. I can see this definitely brightening up someones day!

Stationary Card


So here is what I call a "Stationary Card." I got the idea from Brandy Cox at www.brandyscards.com

She is an amazing demonstrator and comes up with the coolest cards.
When it came to making my card I did alter it slightly due to not having the same stamps that Brandy had. I did use the Stippled Blossom Stamp Set (126747) and Perfectly Penned Stamp Set (122892). I also changed to color to Midnight Muse Ink (126860). 
Here are my measurements:
Whisper White Card stock: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2      Scored at 4 1/4  (basic card)
Midnight Muse Card stock: 5 1/4 x 4      Another : 3 1/2 x 2
Whisper White Card stock: 5 x 3 3/4      Another: 3 1/4 x 1 3/4
Whisper White Strip: 5 1/2 x 1 1/4  Embossed with Lattice Embossing Folder


I stamped the Stippled blossom around my 5 x 3 3/4 card stock. 


Taped together Midnight Muse to stamped card stock and taped to card.

Stamped greeting using Perfectly Penned Stamp Set. 

Put card all together. Don't forget to emboss your strip. (Picture Not Shown).

Also don't forget to stamp the envelope. This adds so much to your card. It makes it look like a complete set. 



Hope you enjoyed this card. There is a video on Brandy's Site if that helps. Thanks for stopping by!

All Over the Place

Hello My Busy Bees' 

So I am finally putting myself out there! Now I have been a demonstrator since March of this year and have very slowly showed off anything that I have created. I have been following other demonstrators on their websites, blogs, and pinterest to get more ideas and found that's how you have to get yourself out there. So along with this blog I have also created a facebook page. 

www.facebook.com/thestampinb

I know this can make it a little easier to get in touch with me and see what I am doing. I'll mostly post links from this blog letting people know about new post and updates from Stampin Up. 
Thanks for checking me out. I'm working on some cards as we speak and will post very soon!
