The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Pebbles Cottage Living - Birthday Wishes Card

Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  I have a pretty quick and easy card to share with you using some of the beautiful pattern papers from Pebbles Cottage Living 6 x 6 paper pad.  


I used three of the pattern papers from Pebbles Cottage Living 6 x 6 paper pad and I also used ivory and a dark gray cardstock to create the layers.  I used a 5.5 x 5.5 size dark gray card base.  I used the Birthday Wishes sentiment from the JustRite Papercraft Grand Handwritten Sentiments clear stamp set and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.


I used Spellbinders Labels Forty-seven with the ivory and dark gray cardstock to die cut the label shapes.  I used 3D Foam Squares in between the layers. Then I added a bow using the May Arts Spring 2015 Silk Ribbon - Teal.  I also added some black, gray, and ivory flowers from the Prima Flowers Laraine Black Tie.


I think this color combination is so pretty!  I love the coral with the mint/aqua and a pop of black.  The papers in the Pebbles Cottage Living 6 x 6 paper pad are beautiful and you get 36 different designs in the paper collection.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Pink Ink Stamp Co. - Super Sweet Sundae Card


Hello everyone!  I just realized I forgot to post this card last month.  I have a yummy sweet treat card to share with you using a stamp image from Pink Ink Stamp Co. you can find the entire collection on Ellen Hutson's site. You can click HERE to see the entire collection of Pink Ink Stamps and click HERE to see the entire collection of Lockhart Stamps.  How many of you love to visit the ice cream shop or the local DQ for a treat?  Or do you remember the ice cream trucks?  Unfortunately, I think the ice cream trucks are becoming a thing of the past in many places. But I am sure many of us have great memories hearing the music from the ice cream truck and seeing it turn the corner to come down the street.   Then making a mad dash into the house to get some money LOL.  


Here is the card I designed using the Super Sundae stamp.  This sundae looks so yummy with ice cream, chocolate, cool whip, and a cherry on top!  I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I colored the image with Copic markers.  


 Here is a close up of the image.  I colored the ice cream to look like vanilla and strawberry.  Then I colored the chocolate syrup and added some Glossy Accents on top.  Once the image was colored I trimmed it down and added light pink cardstock for a mat.  I added another mat with rose cardstock and a white paper doily.  Then I adhered everything to a light pink card base.  I used some baby pink seam binding for a bow and I also added a small pearl white acrylic bow on top.  To finish of the card I added some pale pink satin, medium pink, and moonshine sequins 2mm-4mm in size.  


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

ButterBeeScraps - Beach Themed Necklaces

Hello everyone!  Today, I have some fun, simple beach themed necklaces to share with you using products from ButterBeeScraps.  I designed three necklaces that are similar, they all have a charm, beaded dangles, and a mother of pearl bead and they all have nice long chains.


This is the first necklace I designed.  I love the simplicity of these necklaces.  On this one I used a beach chair charm from the  FUN IN THE SUN TIBETAN CHARMS COLLECTION and I also used SILVER BALL END HEAD PINS.  The mother of pearl bead, aqua bead and bead cap are all from my stash.


I also used a silver metal hammered link to add all the dangles.


Here is a picture so you can see the length of the chain.  I used SILVER CHAIN CH876-P for this necklace and the length is 30''.


Here is the second necklace I designed.  I used a mermaid charm from the UNDER THE SEA TIBETAN CHARMS COLLECTION .  I also used BRONZE BALL END HEAD PINSBRONZE FILIGREE BEAD CAPS (#CAP052-B), and CLEAR RHINESTONE AND BRONZE RONDELLE SPACER BEADS – 6MM (#BD006-B/CL) all from ButterBeeScraps.  The mother of pearl bead, aqua/bronze bead, and shell are all from my stash.


I didn't have a bronze link so for this necklace I used a bronze hoop earring piece instead and it worked great!


Here is a picture so you can see the length of the chain.  For this necklace I used the TEXTURED BRONZE CABLE CHAIN (#CH521-B) and this necklace is also 30'' in length.


Here is the third necklace I designed.  I used the sand bucket charm from the FUN IN THE SUN TIBETAN CHARMS COLLECTION.  I have to say I love this little charm with the bucket and shovel!  I also added a mother of pearl bead and some aqua beads from my stash.


Here is a close up.  I also used another silver metal hammered link for this necklace.


Here is a picture to see the length of the chain and this necklace is also 30'' long.

I hope you enjoyed this jewelry share.  These necklaces were quick, easy and a lot of fun to make.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

ButterBeeScraps - Simply Elegant Flower Necklace

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a pretty little necklace to share with you using products from ButterBeeScraps.  But before I get to that I wanted to let you know Monique has been working so hard on the New Website and it is now LIVE!  You can click HERE to visit ButterBeeScraps new website and online store.  Also while you are there set up an account, sign up to follow ButterBeeScraps through email and also sign up for BEANS--it's a new rewards program!  There is a sale going on until 11:59 PM on June 28th 15% OFF Everything in the Store!!  So many fun and exciting things going on at ButterBeeScraps!  Also, help me in welcoming our newest Design Team Member, Monica who is known as Scrappin4MyBoys on YouTube.  You can click HERE to visit her YT channel and click HERE to visit her Blog.


Here is the necklace that I designed.  I just love how this necklace turned out!  It's very simple but also elegant.  I think I am going to have to make a few more of these.  I used a BRONZE FILIGREE METAL CONNECTOR 004-B for the base of the necklace.  Then I added a resin flower from the BUTTONS & BAUBLES GRAB BAG to the connector.  I also added a SS8 CLEAR POINTY BACK CRYSTAL RHINESTONES to the center of the flower.


Here is a close up.  You can see I added a beaded dangle to the connector.  I used a champagne colored glass pearl and then added it to a BRONZE BALL END HEAD PINS.  I also added a CLEAR RHINESTONE AND BRONZE RONDELLE SPACER BEADS – 6MM (#BD006-B/CL) and BRONZE FILIGREE BEAD CAPS (#CAP052-B) and then created a loop and wire wrapped the end.  I used the same pearls and created a couple of beaded wire wraps for the necklace.  For the chain I used BRONZE CURB CHAIN (#CH206-B)


On a more personal note I wanted to share a few family pictures.


These are a few pictures from last weekend.  We celebrated Father's Day at my aunt and uncle's house with all of the family.  The top picture is my husband and two boys with Elizabeth (cousin).  The next picture is my dad and grandpa opening cards and gifts.  Then there is a picture of my aunt Carol and uncle Jack who were visiting from Florida.  The last picture is my grandpa and my mom (in black) with one of her sisters and one of her bothers, my aunt Gail, and my uncle John.


This past week our youngest son turned 13!  He's finally a teenager!!  I don't know where the years went!?!  We are so proud of him and the young man he is growing up to be.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Prima Butterfly Card

Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have pretty CAS (Clean And Simple) card to share with you using some of the beautiful products from the Prima Butterfly Collection.


Here is the card that I designed.  I used the Prima 6 x 6 Butterfly Collection along with ivory cardstock and I die cut the paper using Spellbinders Baby Buntings dies.  I layered the die cut pieces and added some 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L in between some of the layers to add dimension.  Then I fussy cut the image of the little girl with butterfly wings and the words--sweet memories.  I used more of the 3D Foam Squares in between the layers of paper.


Next I used the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to add a bit of sparkle to the card.  I like using this pen because since it had an actual brush tip and it's clear there are no lines so you can go around the edges and not have a sharp line--just the light look of sparkly glitter.  Then I added some Prima Say It In Crystals Adhesive Rosette - Butterfly Collection and Melissa Frances White Pearls for embellishments.


To finish off the card I added some Baby Pink Seam Binding with a bow and then added an ivory flower from the Prima Say It In Crystals Adhesive Rosette - Butterfly Collection to the center of the bow.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - CAS Happy Birthday Wishes Card

Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a CAS (Clean And Simple) birthday card to share with you.


I have to say I am pretty happy with how this card turned out.  Sometimes the CAS cards are harder for me to design than the ones that are all loaded up with layers, die cuts, embellishments and lots of bling LOL!  I know that might sound kind of funny, you would think it would be the opposite way around.  I like CAS cards and I think I am getting better at creating them but for the longest time I would look at them and think they looked naked--they needed more "stuff".  But sometimes less is more and I am learning to like the CAS cards.  :)  I think this is one of those cards that you could make a stack of in no time at all.  It's fresh, crisp, and has a pop of color. 


I used one of the flowers and a leaf from the JustRite Papercraft Stitched Flowers Vintage Tags Clear Stamps.  I stamped the images on to white cardstock using Tim Holtz Distress Inks Pinked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn.  Then I added a piece of raspberry cardstock for a mat in the background and added the panel to the card front.  I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Runner Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser 49' to adhered the paper pieces.  Then I added some Melissa Frances White Pearls for the flower centers.  If you wanted to have a flat card for mailing you could leave the pearls off.


The sentiment is also from the JustRite Papercraft Stitched Flowers Vintage Tags Clear Stamps and I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pinked Raspberry again.  If you were making several of this same card design you could switch out the colors and also the sentiments.


CAS and quick and easy!  I hope you like the card for today.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Butterflies and Friends Card

Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a beautiful card filled with lots of sparkles to share with you.


Here is the card I designed using several elements from the Prima Chipboards & More Butterfly Collection.  This collection is filled with so many fun goodies to create with including beautiful chipboard pieces, feathers, and sequins.  I used Glossy Accents and Tim Holtz Distress Glitter - Clear Rock Candy on all of the chipboard pieces and the feather to add lots of sparkle.


Here is a close up of the feather and a couple of the butterflies and you can see all the sparkle from the glitter.  Using the glossy accents also adds a little dimension.


I used a larger chipboard piece with the rose and butterfly image and then placed another piece with the word friends on top.  I used 3D Foam Squares to adhere all of the chipboard pieces.


Here is a close up of the butterfly at the bottom of the card and the sequins.  You can also see a lot of the detail from the Spellbinders 3D Embossing Folder 5x7 - Shady Allure that I used for the background on the card.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Thinking of You Watercolor Rose

Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have another CAS card to share with you using some of the Ken Oliver Crafts Watercolor Memories 6 x 6 Paper.  I love all of the papers from the Ken Oliver Collections but I think the Watercolor Memories is my favorite.  Letting the paper do almost all the work for you, you can create beautiful cards in minutes.


I love the soft light colors of the rose image.  Another great thing about the papers from this collection is that one side has soft and muted colors and the other side is bright and bold colors.


I cut the rose image down in size just a bit and then layered with pink cardstock and a ivory card base to create a 5.5 x 5.5 card.  The sentiment is from CR-02152 Best Wishes Clear Stamps from  JustRite Papercraft.  I used Versa Mark Ink and heat set with Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder.  Then I added a few Melissa Frances Cream Pearls to the corner.


Along the bottom portion of the card I added some Baby Pink Seam Binding and Venise Lace 1.75" - Gabriella Ivory.  Then I finished off the card with a rose from the Prima Butterfly Collection.


I have to say I love how this card turned out!  I think its one of my favorite CAS cards.  :)

ButterBeeScraps - Blue Butterfly Necklace with ICE Resin

Hello blogging friends!  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  Today, I have another jewelry piece to share with you.  


I used several bits and pieces from ButterBeeScraps to design this necklace.  I added a beautiful image from ArtCult on Etsy to the Mixed Metal Hobnail Long Rectangle Bezel, Antique Silver and then I filled it with ICE Resin.  After I poured the resin I added some German glass glitter.


After the ICE Resin was set then I added some SS8 Crystal Rhinestone Chain Trim around the outer edge of the bezel.  Next I added some Blue Resin Flower with Rhinestone Center, Blue Micro Beads, some pieces from the Brass Filigree Embellishment (Item #006-G)SS12 Olivine Flat Back Glass Rhinestones, and SS12 Aquamarine Flat Back Glass Rhinestones.  The rhinestones and resin flowers match the image in the bezel perfectly.  I also created some beaded dangles using some of my own beads and Bronze Filigree Bead Cap CAP114-B, and Bronze Ball End Head Pins.


Here is a close up of the bezel.


I also used a little gold Rub-N-Buff on the bezel to being in some of the gold tones from the brass filigree pieces and then I sealed the bezel.

I hope you are enjoying the jewelry piece I have been sharing.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a Happy Sunday!!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi
