Pressed Petals DSP & Washi Tape - WOW! Beautiful

OMG!  I love this combination of products. I have created 2 different versions of the card and can't decide which I like best! I need to make a decision as I have to create 20 for a swap I am participating in.
Which do you prefer - leave me a comment below.
The products used on the cards are:

  • Blackberry Bliss cardstock
  • Pressed Petals Specialty DSP
  • Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape (for the flowers)
  • Detailed Band dies
  • Band Together stamp set.
Making the flowers is super easy. Each petal on the roll come off individually.  All I did was punch a 1/2" circle for the base and stuck the center of the petal to the middle of the circle. Here is a snapshot of the washi tape. There are 2 different rolls that are sold together.  

Over the Moon Birthday Card

I KNOW!!! I said I would put the "cows" away!  BUT I can't help myself!!!  They are so darn cute that they are begging to be used.  
I love Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana together and that is what I have used on this card.
This card uses several different  Stampin' Up! products. I just love how everything coordinates so well together. This card features the following:

  • Around the Corner & Over the Moon stamp sets
  • Stampin' Blends
  • Balloon punch
All the products shown here are available now and you can purchase the supplies right from my online store

New Catalog Launch - Coming in July!

I have been super busy planning an Inspiration Stamp Camp Extravaganza (June 22) AND now a new catalog launch (early July)!!  
I am super stoked that my Inspiration stamp camp is sold out - in fact by the 2nd day of registration all but 2 spots were taken! WOOHOO!
So if that's not enough, I will be holding a new catalog launch as well. I thought it would be a nice idea to create an invitation that I will be sending in the mail next week. 
The invitation isn't quite finished as I need to add the details to the back and stamp the date on the front, but I love how they are looking and just had to share. The invitations feature the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. This set will be available on Tuesday and you can order it directly from my store 
I have colored the Magnolia's with Stampin' Blends markers - Petal Pink, Mossy Meadow & Mango Melody. More to come on this awesome event soon!  For now... Save the date July 11th, 2019 - drop in anytime between noon to 3pm.

Maybe Just One More Cow Card - Over the Moon Filmstrip Card

Look at the cute little faces!  Over the Moon (#149331) will be available in 3 short days! You will be able to order this from my online store starting at noon on the 4th.  I was inspired to make this card because of a card I spotted on Pinterest (thank you Rachel Brumley). I love the idea of a filmstrip card. Unfortunately SU doesn't sell a die to make the filmstrip BUT we can easily create one using the Layering Square dies!  
I stamped each cow with Memento ink and colored with Stampin' Blends and then ran them through my die cutting machine with the Layering Oval dies. The black strip behind measures 1 3/4" x 5".
The background design is not designer paper. In fact it is simply one of the stamps from the set randomly stamped in Memento and touched with Mango Melody blends ink.  
To create the moon, I used the 2" circle punch from Mango Melody cardstock and layered a "shadow" behind using Basic Black cardstock. It may be hard to see but I used clear Wink of Stella over the surface of the Mango Melody moon for some added sparkle!
Are you getting excited for the new 2019 - 2020 catalog???

Over the Moon Slider Card

When I saw one of the greetings in this stamp set I knew what I had to do!  It was begging for me to make this slider card.  How could I resist?  The greeting reads, "Over the mooon for you!"  Just adorable. 
The Over the Moon stamp set is new and will be available starting June 4th, 2019 in the 2019 - 2020 annual catalog. 
I created this card using Night of Navy, Whisper White & Mango Melody cardstock. I stamped the cow using Memento ink and color it with Stampin' Blends (Black, Smoky Slate & Mango Melody) and then I fussy cut the image. I used a die from Sliding Star (retired) to create the track for the slider. If you don't have this die set then you can easily create a track with the Rainbow Builder dies (retired) or simply use a protractor to create the track. 
In order to attach the cow, I layered two washers
together with a dimensional and adhered the cut out to the top of the washer. This was then inserted into the track.
The moon was created using the 2" circle punch and the stars were punched out with the Little Twinkle punch. I colored the surface of the stars and the moon with a clear Wink of Stella.
