Hello Honey and Bravo GONE!

I love collage!  This was such a fun card to make and not only is the set BRAVO retiring but Hello Honey is as well.  But I can't wait to show you how all the great NEW in colors look!  Below is how to make this card!  It is really simple but fun!
DSC09163

 

Sets: Bravo, Timeless Textures

Cardstock: Hello Honey, Whisper White

Inks: Tangelo Twist, Momento Black, Hello Honey

Other: Botanical Builders Framelits, Rhinestones

Stamp CONGRATS in black on the white layer.  Stamp flourish using Tangelo Twist full strength and then stamp off. (Be aware of “seams” if the first stamp is partially off the paper.)  Stamp the other images with Hello Honey. Adhere this layer to the card front.

Adhere 3 flower cut-outs with glue to each card front, then add Rhinestones to each flower.

Happy Stamping!

Goodbye Blackberry Bliss

I love collage!  I am so glad all the sets we had stayed and more came!  This could be any saying you have, I just needed some cards for when people got sick.  The picture on the right is the inside of the cards.  See below for what I did.

DSC09151

Sets: Timeless Textures, Fabulous Four

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White

Inks: Crumb Cake, Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry, Versa Mark

Other: Tea Lace Paper Doilies, White Embossing Power, Embossing Buddy, Heat tool, Botanical Builders Framlits

Stamp collage-style on White cardstock with various inks and stamps. (See picture.)

Emboss words with Versa Mark and white embossing powder onto Crumb Cake strip.  Cut both Crumb Cake and Blackberry Bliss right banner ends at the same time (so they match) then separate and glue together. Attach doily half to bottom/back of the banner.(You will need to cut the doily half down to just enough to show under the banner)  Glue to card front.

Flower is adhered to card front with dimensional and white portion of flower is also dimensionalized. 

Happy Stamping!

Prize Time Still 2 days left!

Wanted to start today with my all time favorite Birthday card to date and since I was just making some wedding cards with this set I thought I'd share the Birthday card we made at January Stamp A Stack. 

Best Birthday card ever!

Best Birthday card ever!

Stamps:  Rose Wonder Bundle

Inks:  Versamark

Cars Stock:  Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Perfectly Artistic DSP, Gold Foil Sheets

Accessories:  Gold Embossing Powder, Curvy Corner Trio Punch

 

Whisper White card stock is cut at 51/8 x 3 3/4” for both the inside and outside.  

 

Cut two single flower out of Gold Foil using the single flower thinlit.

Cut out two of the leaves using the largest thinlit.

Cut two 3 x 2 1/2” squares of the Perfectly Artistic DSP.

Using the FIne Tip Glue Pen to adhere the cut out gold foil flowers onto the designer paper and cut around the edges.   HINT:  Keep the paper snips at a 45 degree angle as you cut and them go slightly under the gold outline.  You will get a cleaner and a much easier cut.

Use the Curvy Corner Trio Punch on all of the corners.  The punch goes through the double thickness of the folded card stock just fine.  I cut the corners on the whisper white card stock for the inside too.

Emboss the saying in gold to match the gold foil on the card.

Hope you like the card as much as I do.  

REMEMBER….

How do you get the Mold OFF??

This is why I don't blog… had the whole thing written and it disappeared!

Now, this is about stamping, well, kinda, sort of…. but you will be so glad there is NOT a picture!  We have an All Day Stamp Class one Saturday a Month – usually the first Saturday( ask me about this later if you want to come play, have fun and laugh… oh, and make a ton of cards), so the last one was early February and we have one this Saturday.  I was looking through all the bags I have laying around – yes, there are a lot – with help from Julie.  I come across a thermal bag  with a ziplock bag in it that is full of the utensils we used for lunch last month  – yes, lunch is provided.  Now the bag had handles that you could see and the rest of the bag was green and white… are you so happy I did not show you the picture!  Julie said I should ALWAY empty thermal bags first – WHO KNOW…. Yes, this was Wendy's job to unload.  And I think I missed the class where YOU ALL learned these things!  So I have them soaking in hot – I mean very HOT water and vinager (my solution to everything now – thanks Diane!) BUT the are not coming clean!  Like not even a lilttle.  So what do I do to clean these?  Some one out there must know – and just to make this about stamping I will send a card to everyone who sends me a solution that is NOT throw them out!

Come back tomorrow for a card and instructions but leave me help on today's New Normal!

Happy Stamping!

Cheryl

Only Eight Days until the new Catalog is Ready for you!

Thank you to all the many friends who have sent me notes, gifts and cards during the Holiday season.  I will be sharing some of your cards on my facebook page so be sure to check my facebook page here .  This is my thank you card to you all.  Below are the items and tips for you to make this card!


Thank You

Thank You

Card Stock:  Brushed Gold (yes we sell it, SU does not), Real Red, Whisper White

DSP: Neutrals Stack, Winter Wonderland Vellum Stack

Ink:  Real red

Set: Versatile Christmas, Tin of Cards (LOVE THIS SET)

Washi Tape Punch, PL card & Labels Framelits

I used Green Glue – Liquid Glue to adhere the vellum – it seems to work the best without showing too much.  The Veluuem and the strip from the Neutrals Stack – I used the Gold Paper, are both adhered directly to the Brushed Gold Card Stock.

The Red Woven Satin Ribbon is adhered to the card with Tear & Tape ( can I say it is SO much LESS messy than Sticky tape!)  Cut the ribbon the the exact length as it is not tucked under.  The bow is adhered with a couple of Glue Dots.

Look for a lot of the items used on this card in the clarance rack here , please be sure you are shopping in my store.  It should say Cheryl Noble in the top right corner,

Remember the special for the savings of $70 off a Stamp A Stack clas ends December 31st.  But you can still sign up after that.  If you have not gotten one of our calenders for 2016 please let me know as we have add a new monthly class – Stamp A Stack.  They are $70 each class making 48 cards each time with different themes.  January we are starting with Birthday … yes we are using the new toys!  Classes are going to be at the Quality Inn at Hwy 60 and the inerstate with lunch provided.  They will be either the first or second Saturday of each month… so email or call me before the FREE class offer ends.  What FREE CLASS… We have a special going on to the end of the year… yes, in two days… that if you buy four classes you get one class free – that is a $70.00 SAVINGS!  You get to pick what months you want to come.  I have been amazed at how people have chosen to split this up – some are just bringing a group of five, some are using them all for "away time", one group of friends are even spliting the cards as they don't want 48 cards each month so they will each only do 24.  You all amaze me with your ways to make stamping time 'Your time'!

Check back daily to see how to do new cards!  I am going to be computer lliteraite in 2016!  

Happy Stamping!

Our dear friends

Our dear friends,

Wendy & I went up to Black River Falls to scuba dive this weekend. She was so very excited to go. Wendy had a problem ( we believe she had a heart attack or stroke), she died Saturday Morning. 

Her sisters and brother in law came up to help me get home.

I would love to be telling each of you this face to face but could not do that. I wanted you, our friends to know. 

I am sorry if this is abrupt, I just didn’t know any other way to tell all of you. I know you love her and she loved each of you. I hope you will all understand that I had to do this through email/facebook. You are welcome to call, text, I will share more as I know.

We will be have a service to remember her life, (we don’t have a date yet – we are looking at Thursday July 9th.)

Please pray for Wendy’s family and me as we walk through this. I am lost.

Blessing,
Cheryl
