Secret Garden Bird Cage – by Jerri Jimenez

This evening we have another very quick late night post.  I couldn’t resist showing you Jerri Kay’s newest shabby style card.  Her floral/bow is over the top!  She used a Graphic 45 pad that is no longer available, Secret Garden, but the current pads, Sweet Sentiments and Botanical Tea, are both wonderful pads that will work beautifully for this type of creation.  Jerri did her usual magic with flowers and the bow uses a combination of seam binding and crochet lace, and the particular crochet lace she used allows for the seam binding to be run through the center.  Take a look:

 

This is so gorgeous and vintage — absolutely love it!

Find Jerri’s post here with more photos and more details.

Jerri used the following items from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store:

Paper: Graphic 45 (Secret Garden, paper pads no longer available)

Good substitutes are Sweet Sentiments or Botanical Tea Collections

Dies: Spellbinders Rose Creations

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Antique Linen, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain, Tattered Rose, Rusty Hinge, Dried Marigold, Old Paper, Wild Honey, Victorian Velvet

Everyday Dress – by Tricia Traxler

Who doesn’t love little dresses! I think we all do. Today Tricia used Prima’s Anna Marie Collection, filled with sweet little dresses, fun flowers, beautiful colors and a nice mix of contemporary and vintage patterns. She also used one of the three stamps that coordinate with the collection for her little dress focal image that she shaded a bit with her Ranger Distress Markers. She added a piece of basic twill ribbon and her signature machine stitching, which goes so well with the dress theme!  A sweet card, quick and easy to make, and flat for mailing!  A good thing!  Take a look:

Isn’t this just the sweetest!

You can find Tricia’s post on her blog here.

Tricia used:

Stamps: Anna Marie Everyday Dress by Prima; Hugs and Kisses by JustRite

Paper: Anna Marie by Prima; Ranger Watercolor Paper

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black; Tim Holtz Distress Markers; Sponge Daubers

Dies:  Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities

Ribbon:  May Arts 5/8″ Twill – Champagne

Embellishments: Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Hot Pink

Adhesives: 3L Tape Runner and Foam Squares

 

Anna Marie by Prima

Shown is the 6×6 pad. All Anna Marie coordinates show up in the above link as well — a variety of mini stamp sets, flowers packages and enamel hearts.

May Arts 5/8″ Twill

This is the basic twill that Tricia used today — she used 02 Champagne.

Check out our entire twill collection to find twill in widths from 1/4″ up to 1.5″, twill in trendy chevron strips, soft pastels or vivid colors, and in fun prints, too!

And check out our CANVAS Ribbon. It’s not a true twill, but people often refer to it as such. The Canvas Ribbon is finer than the twill.  It has less bulk.

Clean and Simple Elegance – by Deb Saaranen

Today Deb shares an absolutely stunning, yet very quick and easy, clean and simple wedding card.  It is loaded with texture and interest, yet remains fresh and crisp.  The texture comes from the use of an embossing folder with beautiful Venise lace layered atop. The bit of color added is from a lovely vintage seam binding bow with some tulle added in. The NEW 1.5″ tulle is so perfect for bow applications — super excited about this product!  The lovely cameo of kissing birds is the perfect embellishment here.

A Vintage Note – by Sheri Holt

Today Sheri created a quick and easy card with a definite vintage flair.  She used paper by Kaisercraft.  Her focal image was a die cut punch out from the back of the paper pad, a nice feature about the Kaisercraft pads.  And the sentiment she chose is perfect for this vintage project.  It comes from a small clear JustRite set called Just A Note.  A perfect little stamp set for any lover of vintage.  The mat behind her focal image and her scallop border are from two of the NEW Spellbinders die sets. YES, they are HERE!  Check at the end of this post for details on all the pre-orders.  But first, let’s take a look at Sheri’s lovely vintage card:

Sweet Friend – by Heidi Blankenship

There is nothing lovelier, or easier, than creating a card when an embossing folder and die set work together. That’s what Heidi did today with the beautiful Labels One shape by Spellbinders.  And as I was preparing this post, I was surprised to see that we have 2 different embossing folders and 6 different die sets in the graceful Labels One series (all shown below). Heidi chose to use the new folder, which is one of the 3D M-Bossabilities, and the basic Labels One with a pretty filigree type Labels One mat layer (also new). It’s a simple card with a lot of WOW!  Gold mirror paper and a silk bow  finish it off — take a look:

 

This is so very striking.  LOVE all the gold used!

Heidi used the Letterpress Technique with her folder and gold ink.

You can find Heidi’s post on her blog here.

Heidi used:

Stamps:  Grand Sentiments by JustRite

Paper: Bazzill Mirror Cardstock – Gold; White cardstock

Ink: Delicata Golden Glitz; Super Fine Embossing Powder – Clear; Brayer; Heat Tool

Embossing Folders: Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities Ornate Labels One

Dies: Spellbinders Labels One, Luscious Labels One

Ribbon: May Arts 1.25″ Silk – Light Blue

Embellishments: Prima Le Mia – Brown Cream; Melissa Frances Pearls – Tan/Brown

Adhesives: 3L Tape Runner and Foam Squares

NEW Stamps in Stock – IndigoBlu

Published by notimetostamp under IndigoBlu

During the Christmas crafting season we brought in some new stamps by IndigoBlu.  They came in kind of late so none of the Design Team even had a chance to showcase them, but they sold very well with no promotion.  Since you all loved them so much, we decided to add a few more pretty florals to our collection of IndigoBlu stamps.  They are shown below and I think you’ll love them! And the few Christmas stamps we have left are at reduced prices!

PLEASE NOTE: These cling rubber stamps by IndigoBlu are on the LARGER side. Please be sure to read the stamp dimensions on the product description.

Your Special Day – by Sharon Johnson

The card I have to share today makes use of a lot of little pretties – lace, satin, flowers, a pin, pearls and rhinestones.  I began this card thinking it would be for a birthday for a friend, but now that it’s done and I’m looking at it, I do wonder if maybe I should save it for a wedding card.  We do have several weddings coming up this summer.  I like to make my wedding cards in the wedding colors.  I wonder what the chances are that one of these upcoming weddings will have pink and black for their colors?  LOL – well, one can hope. And as I do like to just play around with pretty things, this was a fun one to make. Take a look:

 

See all those pretties!

Stamps: Grand Birthday Sentiments by JustRite – a FABULOUS sentiment set! A big time favorite for birthdays and more.

Die: Spellbinders Labels Twenty-eight

Paper: Violet Crush by Kaisercraft

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black

Adhesives: 3L Tape Runner, 3D Foam Squares, 1/8″ Scor Tape, Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue

 

 

Here’s a closer look at the floral/bow cluster.

Ribbon: May Arts 5/8″ Scalloped Satin – Pink

Venise Lace – Isabella White; May Arts 5/8″ Lace with Pearl Center – White

Flowers: Prima Flowers – a variety all from different packs. Similar size/type would be:

Laraine, Le Mia, Godiva, Serenade, Interlude, Delightful Day

Embellishments: Stick Pins by Darsie; Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Light Pink; Prima Say It In Crystal Swirls – Hello Pastel

All items available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, as linked.

__________

 

How did I make this bow?

This is a cheater bow – so quick and easy.  Next time I’ll take pictures of the pieces as I’m working.

You need short pieces of ribbon, length depending on size of bow wanted.

With one piece, make a circular loop – staple through all thicknesses in center.

Repeat, making the next one a bit smaller to nest on top.

Glue onto project some tail pieces, then the larger stapled loop, then nest the smaller stapled loop on top of that.

Bear in mind, this bow has staples in the middle, so it doesn’t work on all applications, but works perfectly when covering the bow center with a lot of flowers.

It’s nice when working with a bit heavier or stiffer ribbon as you don’t have a lumpy knot to contend with.

It’s the easiest and quickest bow you’ll ever make!

Bath Gift Set – by Darsie Bruno

How about a perfectly coordinated, and perfectly beautiful, gift set?  That’s what Darsie has to share with us today.  This is a wonderful idea for Mother’s Day or any time you need just a little something to give.  Darsie started with a few purchased items — a bottle of body wash in a pretty color, a mesh poufy scrubber to match and gift bag (which can often be recycled). She then created her stamped items to tie everything together: a label for the bottle, a decorative front for the gift bag and a card.  She used a beautiful hydrangea stamp by JustRite as the focal image on each item.  This is such a pretty set! Take a look:

 

What a gorgeous gift!  Who wouldn’t LOVE to receive this!

You can find Darsie’s post on her blog here.

 

And here’s a better look at the card. I love it!

From My Heart – by Darsie Bruno

Today Darsie shares a lovely card that could serve for so many occasions.  The generic From My Heart sentiment can be used for any variety of situations and it’s always wonderful to have a card on hand that’s ready to go.  How often do you need a card and though you might have boxes full, you never have one with the right sentiment.  Well, that happens to me a LOT!  And I really like how Darsie used a square of designer paper for her focal image. So simple, yet so effective when the sheet is that pretty!  And Darsie’s use of the Heirloom Flourish One die to create the frame is wonderful!  Take a look:

 

So beautiful!

You can find Darsie’s Post on her blog here.

Darsie used:

Stamps: Baking Antique Tags One

Paper: Sweet Sentiments by Graphic 45

Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black and Lulu Lavender; Sponge Dauber

Dies: Spellbinders Marvelous Squares

JustRite Custom Die Heirloom Flourish One

Ribbon: May Arts 1/4″ Silk Ribbon – Champagne

Embellishments: Kaisercraft Pearls

Adhesives: Liquid Glue; Foam Squares

The gorgeous sentiment Darsie used today came from this fun set!

Sweet Vintage Rose – by Jerri Kay Jimenez

How about a quick late night post tonight.  Jerri has created another beautiful shabby/vintage style card using another of the paper collections by Graphic 45 – the Sweet Sentiments Collection. Jerri took an image of roses from the paper pad to use as her focal point and adorned it with the hand made roses as only she can do. Lots of distressing adds to the shabby style of her card. I adore Jerri’s choice of colors/patterns/prints on this card. And check out the beautiful stick pin, too!  Someone will surely feel blessed to receive this card. Take a look:

 

A stunning Jerri Kay creation!  Again, there are no words –
