Make a Card Monday

Oh wait, isn't it Tuesday?!

Well yes, yes it is!!  But I made this card last night on Periscope (live streaming).  And it was too late too post on my blog.  Truth time, it was late and I was talking to some friends.  I wanted to post this card today as I love how it turned out.

When I make a card on Periscope, I always have a general idea, but I love to have everyone have some input.  But I retain final say, LOL.

This card is using one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Lots of Lavender.

I think flowers are universal, and some my favorite to stamp with, especially when it's FREE!!!

Here is the card created last night.

We debated for a minute on the sentiment, but in the end I punched it out then cut down for the perfect addition to the card.

The ribbon is our Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon colored with Old Olive Stampin' Blend Marker.

Do you see the sparkly goodness??  This was a tip I learned from Connie Stewart, she has a YouTube video showing how to create any color Glimmer card stock.

Another reason I love Stampin' Up!....COORDINATION!!

Card Recipe:
Lots of Lavender SAB Stamp Set
Southern Serenade Clear-Mount Stamp Set (Happy Birthday Sentiment)
Everyday Label Punch (cut down)
Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter
Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon 
Old Olive Stampin' Blends Markers Combo Pack
Stampin' Write Markers - 
Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzaz, Wild Wasabi, Crushed Curry, So Saffron
Cardstock - 
Wisteria Wonder 1 1/2 x 5 1/4, Perfect Plum 4 1/4 x 11, So Saffron, Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4


Now I'm off to send this birthday card to a special lady.

Barn Door Doubled

The first time ever I saw your face....ok I am not sure how the rest of the song goes.  But I felt that way when I first placed my eyes on the new Stampin' Up! Bundle Barn Door.  I knew right away I wanted this set, and would use for a long long time.

We are in the planning stages of building a smaller (800sq feet) home, and the walls will be shiplap with barn doors to save on space. I am not sure yet on the corrugated metal but you never know what this card might inspire.

 This is a bigger card size I have done in a long time, a whopping 5 x 7. But look at those doors!!!


This is the first double door card I made, last night on Periscope with my crafty peeps.  I love the metal look, which was accomplished with our Silver foil.

 

I have created a (lenghtly) video with the instructions.


Here are the card details: 

Barn Door Bundle (Stamp Set & Framelits)
Whisper White Cardstock - 10 x 7, scored at 5 - 4 7/8 x 6 7/8, 2 1/4 x 2 
Basic Black Cardstock - 2 3/8 x 2 1/8, scrap pieces of cardstock for track and door hardware
Silver Foil Cardstock - 2 pieces slightly larger then the square diecut from set
Wood Textures DSP - 1/2 inch strips, for the wood on the door
Simply Scored
Mini Dimesnionals
Multipurpose Glue
Foam Strips
Misc Items - #6 SAE Flat Washers, Crimper

Facebook Friday - Barn Door

It's friday, and for me it's another check mark off my 2018 Stampin' Up! goals.  I decided to start Facebook Friday, live crafting with the bug!!

Since today will be my first Facebook Friday, I do not have a previous card to show you.  I will in the future Facebook Friday posts, show the last card we made live.

So for now, I will show you the stamp set we will be using.  It's actually a bundle in the 2018 Occasions catalog, Barn  Door.  I absolutely love this set, as Barn Doors will be featured in my new home and craft space.  Stampin' Up! has perfect timing, well for me that is.  They are so on trend, as Barn Doors are becoming more and more popular in America.

Here is a picture of the bundle, that you can purchase yourself at my online store.


Join me over at my Facebook group, Ladybug Stampin Spot, and watch me craft live.  I will try to be on my best professional behavior, but like a bug you never know where the trail will lead....LOL


I look forward to seeing  you over on the group for some real live crafting!

SAB Party Panda

A new year, a new goal for 2018! 

This year I would like to start doing more Facebook Lives, while showcasing Stampin' Up! product.  And to start off this adventure, I combined it with something I love to do and that is having a giveaway.  On Tuesday, it was one of my team members brithday, so I had a giveaway.  I went Live for her, and it was not as bad as I thought.  The time gap is what I have an issue with, trying to keep up with the conversation and teach is a little sketchy.   

My first Facebook Live givaway was a set of the new Stampin' Blend Markers in Bermuda Bay.  This color is in my top 5 favorites, and I can't just send markers in a plain bag. 

I thought for a minute, which stamp set could I use???  Oh!!! The Party Panda, cause the giveaway was in honor of a Birthday!!

I came up with a quick bag topper, and a card to accompany.  And I used my Bermuda Bay blends to color in the letter, and balloon.  The "C" on the letter is the first name of the winner of the giveaway, I thought that would be a cute rationalized touch.

I apologize for the lighting, I took this at night.  I may need to invest in another light for the top of my photo box.

Here is the Party Panda, a Sale-A-Bration free stamp set, you can earn with a purchase of Stampin' Up! product.  Yes, SAB has started!!!  




Card Recipe: 

Stamp Set - Party Panda (Free with $50 purchase)
Whisper White Card Stock (cut at 4 1/4 x 11, cardbase, 3 3/8 x 4 7/8 mat, 2 x 4 tag topper, extra pieces for circle punch)
Bermuda Bay Card Stock (cut at 3 3/4 x 5 mat, 1 7/8 x 1 7/8 tag topper mat)
Basic Black (used for circle)
Circle Punches - 1 3/4", 1", 3/4"
Bermuda Bay 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon
Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends Markers Combo Pack
Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine

Ladybug Loot aka Online Class plus SAB Begins!!!

Happy New Year!! I hope all of you enjoyed your holidays, I was sick and busy for the last 3 weeks of the year.  This flu that is running rapid across the states effected me but thankfully I did not get the Flu, but it felt like it for two weeks I was down.  But a few days after Christmas I felt better, all my plans to create while on mini vacation went out the door, like the heat in my house.  But let's talk about more exciting news!

New Year, New Beginnings for Ladybug Stampin.

I am excited to announce Ladybug Loot!! What is this? Well, I wanted to come up with a cute name for my online classes, and this is where Ladybug Loot was born.

Here are some details on how the Ladybug Loot will work:

The pre-order for each monthly class will be open from the 1st of the month through the 10th.

I will post details of class as a blog post.  If you are interested in the class you will send me an email to reserve your spot.  I will send you a pay pal invoice to be payable no later than the 10th of the month.

Once closed, I will order all the supplies on the 11th of the month.  Once received from Stampin' Up!, I will put the class packets together and mail to you, which can take up to two weeks after the close of the pre-order.

The Stamp set, Framelits/Thinlets, Punches, Stampin' Up Classic Ink Pads used will determine the price of each class, plus S&H/Tax.

You will have two purchase options for each class, two help you build your Stampin' Up! supplies for future use.

Each class pre-order will receive free supplies* to complete 6 cards (2 each of 3 designs)

*Free Supplies include: cardstock (cut/punched/diecuts) and accessories, as needed.

I reserve the right to make changes to these details as the class grows, and from feedback of customers.

Now that we got all that out of the way, let's see what this months class is all about.

I love this stamp set!!!  Hedgehugs is a new stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.
