You Move Me - Another Look and more...

You Move Me - Another Look

I like to make multiple samples of the stamp set I'm using at my workshops.  I like my customers to see the versatility of a stamp set or bundle because just like me they want to get as much bang for their buck as they can.  That is why I have another You Move Me card today.  

The "fluttering" look of the butterfly and hummingbird are fun but this set can do so much more than that.  Here is an example.

You Move Me Hummingbird

This was a fun card to design.  I added the Garden Trellis embossing folder and the Layering Ovals Designs to the You Move Me stamp set and Move Me dies to achieve the look.

I have detailed instructions, complete with pictures and a supplies list on my TAMS site and they are printable.

If you like what you see, please, subscribe to my blog and consider becoming one of my customers.  

Thank You,



Blossoming Basket

Here is another card using the Blossoming Basket stamp set and this time I also included the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with the Basket Weave Dynamic embossing folder.  All of these items are available in the 2018 Sale-a-Bration catalog and are still available until March 31, 2018.  You get them FREE with qualifying orders from any current Stampin' Up! catalog.

I've got a hostess code posted to the right, take that down and then click on the shop now button to place your order, use the code, and have your order shipped directly to you.  

On to the best part of the blog today.  Here is the card.

Basket of Wishes

It took a little bit of time to cut out the basket with scissors but I liked the look and the foil DSP really set's it off.

You can see instructions and supplies lists on TAMS site.

Thanks for stopping by.


Blossoming Basket Weave

Have I got a card for you today!  I was so excited to get the FREE items from the Sale-a-Bration add on catalog!  All three of the new choices are absoulutely marvelous.  I love the Springtime Foils although I didn't use them on this project stay tuned I gaurantee you will see something with them in the near future.  What I used for todays card is the Basket Weave Dynamic Folder and the Blossoming Basket stamp set.

I began by going to the My Create Ink Color Lab web site to get some color inspiration.  My favorite button on this page is the "surprise me" button.  By clicking on it up pops a combination of 5 colors.  I then try to build my card using those colors in some way weather with inks, papers or embellishments.

The five colors I got for this card were Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Old Olive, Island Indigo and Pool Party.  And,,,,, drum roll please.....

here is the card I made:

Blossoming Basket

And a couple of  close ups are always nice too.

 This would make a wonderful Mother's Day card if you're thinking that far ahead but it would be a great birthday card too or maybe just a nice card to welcome spring.

As always you can get supplies lists and instructions on my TAMS site.

Thanks for stopping by.




Sweet Soiree' Silver

Today I wanted to share with you just one more Cake Soiree' card.  The suite comes with stickers, dies, stamp set, specialty paper and masks that can be used for embossing with ink or embossing paste.

I purchased the Silver Embossing Paste and decided to give it a try with the Sweet Soiree' masks.  

Cake Soiree' Silver Embossing Paste

Isn't this an elegantly beautiful card?  You can get complete instructions by going to my TAMS site.  Do let me know what you think.  It is one of my favorites made using items from this suite.

I also wanted to share with you a couple more things.  The silver embossing paste is much more liquid than the white and a little goes a very long way.  You can also color it.  I used the Brusho powder, stir in just a very little bit and the paste takes on the color very well.  


The orange Brusho made the paste look golden that's the top right image.  I used the blue in the top left image and the green in the bottom image.  This makes this paste even more versatile. See more details on my TAMS site

Narrow Note Card Happy Wishes

Finally you get a break from Cake Soiree'.  This card uses the Happy Wishes stamp set available in the Sale-a-Bration catalog for FREE with a purchase of $100.00 in merchandise from any current catalog.  This is a double set and well worth having as it provides sentiments for both the front and the inside of your cards.

I used the narrow note cards and envelopes and the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool that will be coming out soon.  You will find some tips on how to use this tool to make this card on my TAMS site.

I clear embossed this image which gives it a raised and shiny look.  As I said you can see more instructions and measurements on my TAMS site.
