A Bike and Goodbye

Wow today marks my first day in a new job. This has been a long time coming because I completed my rotational program and received final placement. Drew and I will be moving to Charlotte, NC in the next month and I am really excited for this new adventure. With this new adventure I had to say goodbye to one of my great friends at work so I wanted to make her a very special card. I followed up with the beautiful envelope I made the other day and you can find that blog post here

I absolutely love this golden bags (Item #144255) and you can purchase them in my online store. I think these will become really popular around Christmas time so I would get them now. Also remember that every $50 that you spend in July you will also receive a $5 coupon to use for August.

This card really has such a wow factor to it and it was simple to make. First I started with our beautiful Fresh Fig ( one of the new in colors) card-stock and also a piece of Whisper White. I used our new embossing past (Item #141979) and added a few drops of real red re-inker and silver glitter to give a little extra sparkle. It gives the effect that it is a nice summer day and you are out for a stroll. I then took our brick patterned decorative mask. These are really the best deal in the catalog because you receive 4 of them for $6 (item #144103). I took the paste and ran it on a diagonal up the card because I just wanted to give a sense that the brick wall was there. I stamped the bike again in Fresh Fig ink and then used my big shot to cut it out. The bicycle stamp (item # 145314) only has images so it pairs nicely with our sentiment only stamps which I used here ( item #143858).

The inside I wanted to keep it really simple so that I can write a lot inside it. I am loving our new washi tape (item # 144221) because it pairs with all of our products wonderfully. Again I used the bicycle stamp set images on the inside to spice it up a little bit more.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that this card inspires you and gets those creative juices flowing.

I also wanted to share that we still have our amazing incentive for new demonstrators happening. On top of being able to put anything into your starter kit (like that amazing big shot) you will also get an exclusive bundle worth up to ($72) for free so that you can hit the ground running. I did a short Facebook live video showing all the products that you can get. Make sure to visit my Facebook page here

 

Celebrate Tree

Wow can you believe how close Christmas actually is?? I created this fun and easy card for a card swap that I am doing at Onstage. Onstage is the conference that all the Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are able to attend. This is my very first one and I am really excited!!! If you would like to join me next time all you have to do is join my team. The link to do that can be found at the top of any of my pages. Also at the bottom of this post is a fun graphic about why you should join.

I wanted to use one of our great mask for this card and at $6 for 4 of them they really are a wonderful deal and something that you should add to your collection. I wanted to keep this card really simple, and minimal stamping. I was also really excited about the sentiment (once I finally figured it out) because it can be given to anyone. I did end up using a variety of supplies for this card but I really wanted to show how you can create beautiful cards in unique ways. I was excited with how my gold stars came out on top of the tree. Just add a little bit of sparkle to the entire card.

Thoughtful Branches Occasions Card

Hello!

Wow it has been a little bit but I have been working behind the scenes to re-brand and also create this great new website! I am so inspired and excited to continue sharing with you and getting your creative gears going. Here is a very simple card that you can whip up in just a couple of minutes. I left the sentiment off the card because I loved the simplicity of just the flower on top of this beautiful DSP! Also did you notice the fab in colors that I used: Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy. I am usually not a green fan but I think Emerald Envy is my favorite at the moment.
