I Love U

Hello and welcome to today's project. I have to tell you that it was pretty difficult for me to come up with an idea today because once I chose the papers I didn't know where to go from there. I knew I wanted hearts and a tag but that was it. So after a little bit I came up with this and I like how it turned out. Check out the project below and let me know what you think.

Sending Good Thoughts

Today's card can be used for anyone and for any occasion. I saw the papers from Studio Calico Take Note 6x6 paper pad and already knew which framelit I would be using and went from there. I inked all the edges of paper with Hello Honey classic ink and die cut from the Labels framelits #2, #3, and #4. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.


Supplies: Take Note 6x6 paper pad, Recollections White cardstock, This to That foam dots, Queen&Co Rhinestones, Stampin' Up Hello Honey ink, Stampin' Up Perfect Pennants stamp set, Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy embossing  folder, Big Shot and Stampin' Up paper trimmer.

Best Day Ever

Simple card to make and just a few supplies made putting this card together a lot of fun. Take a look below and let me know what you think.
Fold pre-made card base and cut a slightly smaller panel of the Birthday Bash Designer series paper and wrap 3 times with the Linen Thread. Adhere the Designer Series panel to the card base using favorite adhesive ( I used the ATG). Cut a Whipser White piece of cardstock to fit and then mat with a slightly larger piece of Hello Honey cardstock. I stamped the stem from the Lotus Blossom stamp set and the heart in Calypso Coral and the Best Day Ever in Bermuda Bay classic inks. While I was inking my edges I made a boo boo and covered it with the basic pearls instead of starting all over. Pop this panel on dimensionals and adhere to the right hand side, centered.Additional supplies used: ATG Tape runner

Kindness card- Lotus Blossom

I was watching a YouTube video earlier by a fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator named Patty Bennett https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se5M08wxAeY and she was showing how to use just one ink color with the Lotus Blossom stamp set so I thought I'd give it a try. I like the combo chosen on my card with the Blackberry Bliss and the Hello Honey in-colors. Take a look at the card below and let me know what you think.
I think this card turned out pretty nice and I have a very special person in mind for this one.

Popping In

I thought I'd pop in real quick to let everyone know that I will be back with new posts tomorrow.  I've had to take a short break to take care of my very clingy 2 year old who has double ear infection and a high fever.  The pediatrician says all will be well but for the past couple of days there's been little sleep in the Allen household. 

I'll  be back with a Valentine card tomorrow.  Have a great night!!!

Happy Birthday #3

Hello and welcome to the blog. This card was made last night during a virtual slumber party which was so much fun. I have created a birthday card using card stock, Blendabilities, and framelits. It was pretty simple to put together and can be easily mass-produced. Take a look below and let me know what you think.
Cut card base to measure 4 ¼ “x 5 ½” and round the top corners. Cut a slightly smaller piece of Patterned paper, round the top corners and adhere to the card base using favorite adhesive. Stamp the image and color it using various Blendability markers and Stamp and Write markers. Die cut the image using the Apothecary framelits. Pop up using dimensionals and adhere to the center of the pattern paper piece. Decorate the inside as desired.
