Pearls or No Pearls That’s the Question!

Share Button

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

This is the Question for today – Pearls Or No Pearls?

Which do you like best? With Pearls or without Pearls?

Sometimes when I’m creating a card I think Oh it needs something so I put some Pearls or Jewels on it and sometimes I think No doesn’t need it. This time I’m not sure which I prefer so I’m asking you. 🙂

This is again my featured stamp set for July the Embroidered Rose; it’s just so pretty I can’t stop going to that stamp set.

I had some left over Red Roses from my featured project cards so decided to use it up on another card.

I also wanted to give my Doily Die a whirl with this set and I think it goes with it beautifully and also the Vintage Notes goes great with it as well.

I also sprinkled on a little Sparkle Silk to give it all a little shimmer and shine. 🙂

A Wedding Rose by Glenda Calkins

July 11, 2017

My featured stamp set for July is the Embroidered Rose and it is drop dead gorgeous!

Today’s card was one I made when I was coming up with my cards for this month’s project.

The background on this card is the I Heart Embossing Folder and will make another great Wedding card for one of my weddings this summer.

When I was working on my grouping for this month’s featured projects I decided to go with the new Corrugated Board Embossing Folder instead. I like them both but felt the Corrugated Board background went better with my ensemble of cards I created for this month’s featured project.

I love the whole Mystic Romance collection and they all have that embroidered look to them which is stunning and they stamp up so beautifully.

When you purchase the Embroidered Rose Bundle make sure to add the Embroidered Greetings stamp set to your order as well; they go hand and hand.

It’s a Crabby Kinda Love!

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Even though the name of this stamp set is Snappy Birthday Bundle I’m using it as an Anniversary card.

Today is Bill and my 37th Wedding Anniversary and I’m sure there have been plenty of times in the 37 years that this sentiment “Thanks for loving me even when I’m crabby” has come into play. 🙂 Actually it goes both ways.

We are spending the day with our kids; hopefully the weather will cooperate today.

This fun stamp set is sold in a bundle with coordinating dies and is in the Spring Into Summer Mini which will end Friday!

I used the coordinating Under the Sea prints on this card as well.

Click on the products you need and add them to your shopping cart.

I can’t stress enough to get your orders for the Spring Into Summer Mini in SOON! We only have until Friday!

Today’s card was some inspiration from yesterday’s card and the layout is from the Can You Case It CYCI #143 sketch challenge.

I changed out my Persian Garden die for the Artful Burst die DI-0220 $19.95.

I also changed out my Happy New Year sentiment for “Celebrate” from the Tag Elements ATS stamp AT-0130 $7.95.

The Journey Brush Gold CS-0134 $12.95 card stock was adhered to the inside of the card front. The base of the card is the Black Licorice card stock CS-0003 $6.95.

The glasses and the sentiment were embossed in Gold on Whip Cream card stock CS-0040 $6.95.

I just created a Wedding or Anniversary card using the New Year ATS AT-0045 $7.95 stamp and the Tag Element stamp.

It’s fun to be able to use stamps for more than one occasion; I like to make things versatile.

Here is the featured project for this month:

FSJ Winter Fred & Ethel

Yesterday was my daughter and son-in-laws 2nd Wedding Anniversary and when I was making this week’s technique video I knew I wanted to make a Fred & Ethel Anniversary card for them.

Isn’t this so darn cute? I love how they are holding hands and the little heart with the sentiment in between! So stinkin’ cute!

The technique was last week’s technique using the stencils, Journey Modeling Paste JM-0073 $7.95 & Re-inkers. If you missed the video you can watch it below:

I thought the Ring Stacks Stencil JM-0006 $7.95 was also the perfect stencil for this anniversary card.

Winter Fred AT-0152 $7.95 is an ATS Stamp FREE with a min. $150.00 order or sold separately or in a bundle BD-0079 $15.20.

Ethel AT-0157 $7.95 is also an ATS stamp but is not sold in a bundle.

I colored Fred & Ethel using the Journey Color Burst Pencils JM-0077 $79.95. This was the first time I used the pencils and I must say I do like them a lot! I used baby oil and the Color Burst Blenders TO-0123 $4.95 to blend the colors and WOW does that make the colors pop!

The sentiment is from another ATS stamp Tag Elements AT-0130 $7.95 punched out with the Love Is Punches TO-0006 $14.95.

I used the Cut Rhinestones AC-0023 $4.95 for the buttons on Fred & Ethel and a little bling on the heart.

I think Fred & Ethel make a cute couple what about you?

Here is a list of all the supplies you will need to create this card:
Winter Fred Stamp AT-0152 $15.20
Ethel Stamp AT-0157 $7.95
Tag Elements Stamp Set AT-0130 $7.95
Ring Stacks Stencil JM-0006 $7.95
Journey Modeling Paste JM-0073 $7.95
Blue Lagoon Re-inker RI-0029 $5.95
Black Licorice card stock CS-0003 $6.95
Whip Cream card stock CS-0040 $6.95
Beach Breeze card stock CS-0001 $6.95
Journey Sparkle Cuts AC-0151 $5.95
Punch Handle TO-0031 $12.95
Love Is Punches TO-0006 $14.95
Journey Color Burst Pencils JM-0077 $79.95
Color Burst Blenders TO-0123 $4.95

Bicycle 2
Just got through working on my cards for my next Card Buffet class and this is one of the cards that my customer’s can choose to make.

This is the Free Sale-a-bration Petal Pushers stamp set.

The Washi tape is from the Everyday Chic Designer Washi Tape.

I love this set because you can use it for lots of different occasions.

This bicycle built for two reminds me of my honeymoon. We rented one of these bikes on Mackinac Island and I was in the back; needless to say I rested my legs more than pedaled and my husband commented on how much harder these bikes were to pedal. I said, Yeah they are as I was resting my legs. 🙂

Well he found out why when another couple went by and she said, now you’re talking and put her feet up. Bill said, are you doing that? Maybe 🙂 and he said, no wonder why it’s hard to pedal. hahaha Yup that could be why!

We’ve never rented another bicycle built for two after that. We went and each bought our own bikes. Not too bad I got a brand new bike out of the deal. hahaha
