My hubby is always sporting a great wallet!

I first saw a wallet card on Pinterest by Gosia Mackinnon forever ago.

I finally made it! It was so fun, I also made one for my dad with different colors!

I wish I could show you these in person, they’re amazing to open.

Layout Challenge

Hello!

I tried a new layout as part of the TGIF challenge #TGIFC111

VISIT TGIF HERE!

#TGIFC111 Sketch Challenge

My Card…

Water mark Lion- FAV 6:10:17

What can I say… I have baby on the brain as I patiently (and not so patiently) await my babies arrival.

She’s been psyching me out! Like all good things, it’s worth the wait!

Watermark Lion- CLOSE

I have officially used my NEW product from the 2017 Annual Catalog!  Man, that feels good!

This card uses the “A Little Wild” set… one I had my eye from the first glance at the catalog!

Being that I have small kids around, I  love anything I can stamp with my son.

He’s already stamped this lion with me! Such a good helper!

Watermark Lion- TGIF

How to make: Cut Very Vanilla as your card base. Cut the Bundle of Love  DSP at 1-1/4″ by 4″ for lower layer and 2″ by 4″ for the top layer (arrows) and glue it on. Basic Black strip is 1″ by 5″ and emboss your saying (from Beautiful You set) with Craft white ink and white emboss powder. Add dimensionals to the black piece if you want a pop! Cut the circle with Stitched Shapes die and Big Shot with Flirty Flamingo.  Now stamp your lion in permanent Archival Black ink and use the blender pens (I liked it on Very Vanilla).  Use these colors to fill him in! 1) Peekaboo Peach & Daffodil Delight (mixed) for the lion’s body, head and tail. 2) Soft Suede with Daffodil Delight for the Hair. 3) Flirty Flamingo for nose and checks. Cut him out with dies and prop-up with dimensionals. I added the mini sequins trim with glue dots. Pretty simple card!  I love how easy this card is to make… if you like to color!

Thanks for the visit!

I used a lot of my NEW product from the Stampin’ Up! Catalog that just launched.

Stamp Sets: Oh So Eclectic, Lots of Love, & Dare to Dream (for the saying)

Designer Series Paper (DSP)– Pop of Pink (retired)

 

DSC_3522

This saying is inspired by my children and hubby… they are my greatest adventures!  What’s yours?!

DSC_3524

How to make: I cut out ovals with the Layering Ovals dies and Big Shot machine. Use a bigger oval for the DSP, grab a scrap piece of Bermuda Bay and cut a smaller oval and stamp your saying on a scrap of white.  I added dimensionals to the DSP to prop up. I stamped the flowers in Peekaboo Peach, fussy cut 3 of them and used the Eclectic Layers die for flower, black outlined flower, 2- black branches, and 2- bermuda bay branches (one is fussy cut, since it only adds an impression). Layer on all pieces starting with the largest flower (dimensionals) and work outward.


Ready to see my other creations?! Great!

DSC_3538

This was made with Tranquil Tulips (Host Set) and Sunshine Sayings.

Thanks Tulip- Bokeh FAV

I love the new Iridescent Sequins!

DSC_3567

The Designer Series Paper is from Pick a Pattern

How to make: Cut your DSP at 2-1/16″ by 5-1/2″ and glue to Bermuda Bay card base. Cut Peekaboo Peach at 2-9/16″ by 4″, add 1/4- doily and dimensionals. Cut White at 2-1/4″ by 3-1/2″, stamp on 2-stems and a leaf with Lemon Lime Twist (stamped off first). On a scrap of white stamp your 2- Tulips with Peekaboo Peach. This is a 2-step stamp and I stamped the front of the tulip last. To get a darker peach line-up and stamp twice, fussy cut and pop up the larger tulip with a dimensional. Emboss your saying with Whisper White Craft ink and heat emboss with white powder. Use the Triple Banner Punch for tag edges. Add sequins and you are done!

I used the NEW Gold Mini Sequins Trim and The Pinewood Planks Emboss Folder.

DSC_3576

The mini flowers come from Oh So Eclectic

THANKS is from This Little Piggy stamp set

 

DSC_3552
