Special Thank You

Thank you to all of you that left me such warm comments on my Facebook page and the emails of condolences and support for the tragedy and loss my family experienced last week. My aunt is doing fine and the red cross is helping her and her family get back on their feet after the castostropic fire that has destroyed her home she has had for more then 60 years. The lose of her daughter that had been fighting Breast cancer less then 24 hours after the fire will take some time to accept but God is able to give peace even when we don’t understand why things happen the way they do.

I am now back in the studio this week working on some new projects that I will be sharing soon.  I am so grateful for your love and support you have shown me.

Happy Birthday Invitation:

This project of love was created for a special young lady that will be celebrating her 17th Birthday.

She requested a monogram simple but elegant invitation to give to all of her loved ones and friends.

So I pulled out some of my retired stamp sets and put them to work, the inside was created using the Stampin UP Creative Elements Stamp Set, Versa Mark Water Color Ink, and Silver Embossing Powder.

For the cover I used the Stampin Up Lovely Letters Stamp set, basic Jewels colored with my Blendabilieties Marker, 5/8″ Silver Satin Ribbon, Silver Glimmer Paper and a Crafters Companion Embossalicious Flouris Embossing Folder.

This simply elegant card invitation was so much fun to do and it is always nice to pull out my older stamp sets and allow my creative juices to take over.

Butterfly Basics Occasions Catalog Sneak Peak!

 

image

 Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Bundle is a must have!

This card was inspired by a card project I found in the new Occassions Catalog to be released January 6, 2015. I love the images and dies in this bundle, the butterflies are elegant and so intricate they look like they are fluttering off the card. The thank you sentiment is from the Blooming with kindness stamp set and the background was created using the pillow top technique. I cut out the butterfly dies and colored them with DIY shimmer mist.

As a Stampin UP Demonstrator I received the latest Stampin Up Occasions Catalog during the Catalog pre-release celebration held earlier this month and we are currently allowed as demonstrators to pre-order the products so that we can begin creating card projects to help inspire you our customers.

PRODUCTS USED:

Inks: Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz

Stamp Sets: Butterfly Basics Bundle, Blooming With Kindness

Card Stock: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Acetate Window Sheet

Embellishments: Basic Jewels Rhinestone, Stampin Spritz Shimmer Mist

Directions

Base:

1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, fold in half to form your base card.

2. Using a piece of acetate or window sheet and a sponge dauber start in the middle of the folded card base, form a diagonal line by lining up the window sheet from the top left corner to the bottom right corner and begin to sponge the lost lagoon ink off of the window sheet onto the card base to form the pillow top lines. Repeat by moving the acetate (window sheet) down by 1 inch at a time until you have completed the bottom half of the card base.

Tip: Ink the sponge dauber and using short swirl like strokes, start on the window sheet moving off slightly onto the card stock to form the lines. You want blended lines not hard circles of ink.

3. To complete the top of the card base return to the center diagonal line and begin to move upward 1 inch at a time until the entire card base is complete.

4. Next turn the base 1/4 turn to the right and repeat steps 2 and 3 to form the diamond pattern.

5. Cut Calypso Coral cardstock to 3-5/8 x 4-7/8

6. Cut a Whisper White cardstock to 3-1/5 x 4-3/4 this is your focal image layer.

7. Using a piece of scrap computer paper or post it note , stamp the flower image and fussy cut it out to make your mask.

Focal Image Layer:

8. Next stamp the border image from the butterfly basics stamp set about 1-1/4 inch from the bottom of the whisper white image layer using the Lost Lagoon ink.

9. Then stamp the flower image from the Basic Butterflies stamp set slightly off centered in Calypso Coral (see card example above).

10. Cover the flower image you just stamped with the mask you created and stamp the leaf image from the butterfly basics stamp set in Pear Pizzazz, stamp the second leaf without re-inking to form    a lighter shade and contrast.

Tip: If your mask causes a slight gap between the flower and the leaves, just fill in using your Pear Pizzazz stampin write marker.

11. Remove mask and stamp your sentiment.

12. Adhere and center the focal image layer to the calypso coral layer you prepared from step 4 and then glue to the card base.

Tip: You can add some added dimension to your project by using dimensionals to adhere the calypso coral framed focal image to the card base.

Butterfly Embellishment:

Cut out 2 of the medium butterflies from the butterflies thinlets, in whisper white

spritz with calypso coral shimmer mist and daffodil delights mist, let dry adhere with glue dots down the cent of the butterflies body and add the rhinestones basic jewels.

Shimmer Mist Recipe:

*  Using the Stampin Spritzers, add 1 part alcohol and 2 drops of calypso coral ink into the spritzer. To give it a metallic or pearlized sheen I also added a drop of iridescent ink, ( Stampin Up discontinued the iridescent ink pad and refill last year).

* Repeat in a separate mister to create the Daffodil Delight mist.

*  You may also use shimmer mist from your local craft store to get the same results.

The Butterfly Basics Bundle can be purchased starting January 6, 2015 by visiting http://www.LeahsCards.stampinup.net or click on the Shop Now links on the right.
