Friends are Like Seashells Bundle with Video

This bundle is so much fun to work with!  I bought it because I want to create a month for my calendar with it.  In the meantime I have a friend who loves the ocean!  I decided to make a card for her out of this bundle!  I love this idea from the catalog and just changed up a few things about it!

Click here to watch my You Tube Video to see the steps for making this card!

You can see the Wink of Stella a little bit better below. In person, it is such a “wow”!!!

Steps which you will see on the video::

  • Cut out the large shells die (5 1/2″x 4″)
  • Emboss it using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder
  • Stamp each shell onto the embossed c/s:  So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand.
  • Use a sponge dauber for the Soft Sea foam and the Sahara Sand colors.
  • Add wink of Stella.
  • Stamp the greeting of your choice.
  • I used a greeting from the Happy Thoughts set out of the current Mini Catalog.
  • I punched out three extra plain ovals to place underneath the Blushing Bride Layering Scalloped Oval.

Sweet Ice Cream Bundle

Feeling so much better after falling up the stairs!!  That was not fun!

I saw this idea for the designer paper background here through Chris Slogar on Pinterest.

Here is another idea from the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle.  I used Blackberry Bliss card stock and ink.  I saw the idea for the designer paper part of the card on Pinterest several weeks ago. I love the font on the Happy Birthday!  I punched out several extra scoops of ice cream so that the ice cream would pop off the card a little bit!

  • The ice cream designer paper is 2″ at the top and 2 1/2″ at the bottom.
  • The Blackberry Bliss DSP is 1 1/2″ at the top and 1″ at the bottom.
  • It’s pretty easy to just mark the DSP with a pencil and use the cutter to make the pretty angles.
  • I Stamped the crisscross design on the  Crumb Cake ice cream cone and then ran it through the Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder. I think that you could emboss a whole piece of c/s and then punch out the cones at the correct angle. That would be faster if you are making multiples.
  • I used one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies for the greeting and then simply cut out the Blackberry Bliss layer with my cutter.

Art Gallery – More Remakes with the Beautiful Fine Art Floral Designer Papers

On Sunday morning, I was hurrying up the two steps from my family room to my dining room to answer the phone, and I tripped and fell hard on my right side.  I brushed myself off and thought everything was fine until I started noticing my one of my ribs.  By Monday, my body was in overwhelm trying to deal with the shifting and adjusting so I didn’t post for Tuesday!

Right after Christmas I started doing series of Pilates stretches that take less than 5 minutes!  The Pilates stretches are what kept me from experiencing more serious angst in my body after my fall!  I would really encourage you to join me in strengthening your core.  You can go to You Tube and search for Matt Kucher, Pilates for Seniors.  He’s a great instructor and has an Australian accent.  If your core isn’t strong, then what  a chiropractor does to help probably won’t hold.  At least that is the way that it has worked with me.

People have been telling me for years, really, to do some Pilates!!  Thank heavens I am finally listening!

I had a lot of fun remaking the design of my original card into the following ideas with the Fine Art Floral Designer Papers!  Hope you enjoy them!

Rococo Rose and Very Vanilla card stocks and Rococo Rose ink

Pretty Peacock card stock and ink

Poppy Parade card stock with Real Red ink

You wouldn’t really realize that the ink is Real Red and not Poppy Parade like the card stock.  The Real Red pops more!

This is Seaside Spray card stock with Misty Moonlight ink.
