Project Mondays... I mean Tuesday...

OOPS! I was thinking yesterday was Sunday for some strange reason I just cannot keep my days straight! It must have something to do with the boys all being home from school... oh and the fact that I recently started working outside the home again... ANY way I had a project ready to share, but didn't get a pic of it yet.. so I thought I would share a card I made using new colors and new Hostess sets from the NEW CATALOG!

You can earn them by hosting a party with me, or you can be your own party ( purchase $150 or more before shipping) you can start ordering out of the new catalog on July 1st! want a copy? just let me know I have them available, Hostesses can get a free copy, or come to my New catalog Extravaganza on July 13th, OR I will sell you one for $5!
I will share what I was going today on the next addition of Project Mondays....

Project Monday's are Back!!

I know it has been a while... what ever happened to sticking to a resolution anyway???

Well I am trying to be better, and I hope you like what you will be seeing in the next few weeks! I have many projects already done, just waiting to share, and plan on making many more!

So I bet you just really want the scoop on this one huh?

Okay so I saw a really cool idea in the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog... Which I know you are all dying to see ( you can pre-order a catty from me- or get one free by booking a party!)
Okay so back to my Project... I went to the thrift store looking for a cool old frame... no luck, but found one the same size as a frame I had in the house, so I bought it and swapped them out. i bought a can of green spray pant and spent all day coating my very cool frame, cool huh?
I love this frame, but it was a bit gaudy! It has velvet on it! wasn't sure how that would end up looking after I painted it, but looks pretty good!
Then I took my husbands handy square and marked off where I was going to place my wire. I hammered in a ton of little wire nails and then wrapped ( well Mike did that part, lol) the wire all around the frame, making a grid.
I then added my Library clips (from Stampin' Up! of course) so I can hang stuff from it!
So here it is... I love how this looks on my Tangerine tango wall!
Oh and the color of the frame? It very closely resembles one of the new "In Colors"
can you guess which one it is?

June Card class 2010

This month I am focusing on retiring products, colors and the Summer Mini. BUT there are some cards that I had to make because of the season!
This card was inspired by Julie Davison, I liked the layout she used, and wanted to use the same technique, but ended up changing it to my liking!

I used Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard and Old olive markers and cs. I inked up the stamp from the set Watercolor Trio, then after stamping on Whisper White, I spritzed the image with my Stampin' mist to give it a softer, more water colored look.

This card was inspired by Michelle Singer. It is a very patriotic card, I think! It only uses the Sparkle stamp from Warm Words ( which is retiring!) I first punched the star out , then lined up the scallop square punch and punched it out. Then I outlined the star with 2-way glue pen and sprinked Dazzling Diamonds glitter on.
I used Brilliant Blue Whisper White and Real Red cs for this card.

I also used the Real Red Polka dot ribbon, love it! After stampin sparkle in Real Red ink, I outlined it with the 2-way glue pen, then added the Dazzling Diamonds.

want to see more? come to Class tomorrow night ( OPB employees on Thursday)
OR come back on Friday to see the rest of the great cards that we will be making!

card share

Here is a very simple card with a big impact! Now I would love to take credit for this one, but I saw a very similar one, but I cannot remember where... if it is yours would you please let me know?

To make this card I first started with a card front, then used my square punch to make a template ( I punched it twice to make a rectangle) However I wasn't able to punch it in the center, so I just of set the template when I used it...

I sponged Bashful Blue in the rectangle onto my White card base. Then I used Always Artichoke and Bravo Burgundy Stamp n write markers to color the image on the Water color trio set ( from the Summer Mini)

I stamped it just outside of the blue rectangle, then I stamped my words ( my favorite ever) from the set Favorite thoughts ( again from the Summer mini) in Always Artichoke.

To get the great sparkle I used my glue pen to fill in the flowers, then added Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

what do you think?

Criss Cross

It has been a while sense my last post, I am very sorry for that... BUT I think you will enjoy this card! And if you are in Florence Oregon on Monday you can make one! ( I know shameless plug for my card class)

This is a Criss Cross card, I learned how to make this from the resource section on Splitcoast stampers.

For this card I featured many retiring products, Razzleberry DSP, Vintage Brads, Clear Buttons, and Melon Mambo Polka dot Ribbon. Along with Banquet Bunch stamp set from the current Mini catalog. The card base Melon Mambo, the insert is Rich Razzleberry, and US white.

For the Band I used textured white cs, wrapped with a piece of Melon Mambo ribbon. The Jumbo flower punch out of Melon Mambo. I tied a piece of crochet thread around a scrap ribbon and through the clear button.

The image again is from the Banquet Bunch stamp set ( Summer Mini 2010) I stamped the vase and flowers in Basic grey, used a blender pen to color the vase with Rich razzleberry, and a marker to color the flowers ( then scribbled the blender pen over the flowers to soften)

What is your favorite product that is retiring??? have you made a fab card using it?
Share a link to you card!
Oh and just in case you are wondering card class is Monday June 14th at 6:15, we will be making 2 criss cross cards. want more info? contact me.
