Bloom – by Sheri Holt

Quick Note: Read about our Labor Day Special Here (FREE RIBBON!)

Today, Tuesday, 9/2/14, is the LAST DAY for this special.

Today Sheri has a super quick card to card with us that is also SUPER pretty — very bright, fun and eye-catching. Sheri loves to work with bright colors, and even though  she started with a basically black chalkboard style base today, she achieved her very bright and cheery look with the use of some vibrant fuchsia colored ribbon, deep yellow flowers and some fun enamel dots picking up the bright as well as the softer blue/turquoise type color in the paper. I often sound like a broken record, but I’ll say it again — if you like quick and easy – this one’s for you! Take a look:

Optimist Bloom

Love it – so vibrant and pretty!

Love how Sheri picked up all 3 accent colors from the paper with her embellishments.

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

Sheri used:

Paper: Optimist 6×6 by Prima

Ribbon: May Arts 1.5″ Silky Crushed Ribbon – Fuchsia

Embellishments: Petaloo Botanica Minis – Yellow; Enamel DotsPrima Optimist

Adhesives: Scor Tape, 3D Foam Squares

Optimist by Prima

This collection contains MANY coordinates, including chalkboard style stamp sets, flowers and the enamel dots Sheri used today – check it out!

1.5 Silky Crushed UK

May Arts 1.5″ Silky Crushed Ribbon

Fun and easy ribbon to work with, and I love the elegant/vintage appeal.

Available by the yard, full spool or a handy sampler package.

Hint:  This ribbon does not fray so can be cut lengthwise if you prefer a narrower ribbon, thereby doubling or even tripling (or more) the usage from each yard.

We have a very sweet clean and simple card today from Michelle showcasing one of the potted plant Die D-Lites by Spellbinders. There are three different potted plant dies available, and what a fun set of cards they would make. And the fun papers used as a backdrop to the potted plant are from one of my favorite pads out recently by My Mind’s Eye.  Take a look:

Royal Princess – by Heidi Blankenship

Quick Note: Read about our Labor Day Special Here (FREE RIBBON!)

Everything about Heidi’s card today is very regal, beginning with the Princess paper collection by Prima and the beautiful dies from the A Gilded Life collection by Spellbinders. The Monarch die was used as one would expect, but Heidi took the Brocade die to another level, and she’ll show you how she did it on her blog post linked beneath the photo.  Let’s just say she took a piece of May Arts 2.5″ Cotton Blend Ribbon (plain ribbon) and turned it into ribbon fit for a princess.  Wonderful technique! Take a look:

PrimaPrincessHeidiBlankenship1 500527

See the wide ribbon on the left? Yes, it started out plain and this was achieved with a die!

Find Heidi’s post here with instructions for this ribbon technique.

Heidi used:

Paper: Princess 6×6 by Prima

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Antique Linen; Mix’d Media Inx Chiffon

Dies: Spellbinders Dies from the A Gilded Life Collection:

Petite Monarch (border) and Vintage Brocade (used for the ribbon)

These offer such beautifully vintage options for your paper crafting projects. Though designed by Spellbinders to be able to cut/emboss heavier materials such as leather or plastic using the Spellbinders Media Mixáge Artisan X-plorer™ Machine, they work beautifully on paper in standard die cut machines used by papercrafters.

Ribbon: May Arts 1/4″ Silk Ribbon – Pink, Ivory;

May Arts 2.5″ Cotton Blend Vintage Print – Plain

Embellishments: Prima Abbey Flowers – Pink; Melissa Frances Pearls – Cream

Elephant Smiles – by Tricia Traxler

How about an absolutely FUN card today to brighten up the day! That’s exactly what Tricia has to share today, and it’s quick and easy, too — always a plus. Tricia used a new to her pad from Kaisercraft called Hello Sunshine.  For her sweet little elephant image she used one of the coordinating die cuts from the Collectables package. If you like quick and easy, you’ll love using these die cuts — they are so fun and each pack has about 50 die cuts, if not more. Tricia’s perfect sentiment came from a floral clear stamp set by JustRite. Take a look:

Isn’t it sweet!  It would brighten anyone’s day!

LaBlanche Foxglove – by Deb Saaranen

Deb was playing with several new things this week and we get the pleasure of seeing what she came up with. She chose to use the beautiful Foxglove silicone stamp by LaBlanche.  LaBlanche creates very lovely vintage inspired images if you aren’t familiar with them.  They are highly detailed and stamp beautifully. Deb also used paper from the Something Blue collection by Kaisercraft.  The sheet she chose makes such a beautiful, subtle backdrop for her lovely image. A bit of Venise lace and some tulle for an understated bow create the perfect accent pieces! Take a look:

Sew Lovely Happy Birthday – by Sheri Holt

Sheri has such a  lovely birthday card to share with us today. She made good use of a new to her paper pad – Sew Lovely by Carta Bella.

Another Fairy to Cherish – by Jerri Kay Jimenez

Once again we have a late night post showcasing a lovely creation by Jerri Kay. Again she is using the Spellbinders Die D-Lite Fairies and this evening shares a lovely card in muted blush and yellow tones with a combination of both purchased pre-made flowers and her hand-made flowers, layered atop some beautiful die cut shapes. The softly colored paper is from a pad called Cherish by Authentique and Fairy Ariana was used with glitter applied to her wings. As always from Jerri – very vintage, very beautiful. Take a look:

Bundle of Joy Baby Boy – by Heidi Blankenship

As a follow up to yesterday morning’s post (seen here) we have a very sweet baby boy card today created by Heidi. Although it is very similar in style and feel, it uses different images, sentiments and dies.  Like the baby girl card yesterday, this card is crisp and fresh with a vintage image and a more ornate die cut shape for the background. I really love how Heidi pulls together these dynamite cards that knock your socks off but don’t take a ton of time or work.  Once again, take a look at this sweet baby card:

Welcome Baby Girl – by Heidi Blankenship

Another very short and sweet post. We have out of town company all weekend, so time is limited. But I had to show you this sweet, sweet baby girl card Heidi has to share with us today! It’s crisp and fresh in pink and white, yet ornate and vintage with the images and dies Heidi chose to use. What a wonderful combination. This card will most certainly melt the heart of any soon-to-be or new Mommy! It is absolutely precious and not very difficult or time-consuming to make. Take a look:
