Have you used the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper yet?!  I LOVE this paper oh so much!  It's classic black & white...and there's just something about that color combo that makes me so happy.  Also...it's so easy to add some color to this paper also...making any color combo you want!  Like I did here...

Magical Mermaid Notes...

It's no secret that I LOVE the Myths & Magic Suite in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog!  I mean, serious, there are mermaids, unicorns, wizards, glitter, and more!  It. Is. So. Fabulous!!!!  Well I am kinda squealing over the project I am sharing today....and need to make more of these so each of my girls can have one!  (And boys would love it too!!!  I just only have girls.)  I mean, seriously, look at how cute this is!!!! ...


ColorsBermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Whisper White
Cardstock/Papers Lemon Lime Twist, Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper
Stamps: Magical Day
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits
Accessories: Berry Burst 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon, Clipboard


A glittery mermaid clipboard?!?!  Are you kidding me?!  And this was SOOOOO easy to make!  I just covered a cheap clipboard I bought with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue (green lid bottle) and added some designer paper.  I made a little template of the top with just some scrap cardstock, and then traced that onto my designer paper to get that part right.  Once you have the template...it would be super easy to just keep making them! 


This would also be fun to make with the wizard paper, unicorns, anything!  Look at that fun sparkle!!!  I am seriously obsessed.  Hee.


And this ribbon...can we swoon 😍😍😍 over this together for a minute?!  I. Just. Love. This. Lucious. Ribbon!  Even more stunning in person!

I hope you enjoy this project!  Please let me know if  you have any questions!

Life Is Beautiful...With Shimmery Embossing Paste:

I have another Embossing Paste card to show you.  And I LOVE THIS CARD!  I'm not sure if that's ok to say or not, but it's one that I just look at and smile...it makes me happy.  I may just even frame it and put it up in my room.  😀  Should I?! 



ColorsBermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White Thick, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist
Stamps: Colorful Seasons, Banners For You
Tools: Pattern Party Decorative Masks, Palette Knives, Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Bunch of Banners Framelits
Accessories: Shimmery White Embossing Paste, Linen Thread, Brights Enamel Shapes


That large medallion in the back is the embossing paste.  I mean...seriously...look how amazing this is...


Pictures don't really do it justice.  I even just love this little bundle of elements also. 😀

 (***Side note... this stamp set is called "Colorful Seasons."  It is part of one of my very favorite bundles in the Annual Catalog.  Although the stamp set and coordinating framelits will be in the NEW catalog that is launching in June...it won't be available in the discounted bundle pricing.  So get it now if you want it to save yourself some cash!


I am for sure going to be making more of these.  😍  But...you know I love it...what do YOU think?!  Would love to hear!  Thanks for visiting!  Let me know if you have any questions!

Tutti Frutti Narrow Note Set...April Club Project:

I have to be honest...I LOVE LOVE this month's project that we made for club.  Oh my heavens. 💖💖💖  If you don't have the "Lots to Love Box" framelits...my advice is to get it before it's gone.  It is retiring, but the Narrow Note Cards are not.  And it is the perfect box to add a set of these cards to.  SOOOOOO...get it while you can so you can make this project...



Colors: Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, Whisper White Narrow Notecards & Envelopes
Stamps: Fruit Basket, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Waterfront
Tools: Big Shot, Lots to Love Box Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, 2 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Classic Label Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch
Accessories: Metallics Enamel Shapes, Calypso Coral 1/4" Ombre Ribbon

I mean, really, who wouldn't want this cute box set of note cards?!  I know I want to make like 20 of them just for myself!  😂  Here is the cute box...that again...you need to get these framelits before they retire!  This box is actually fun for so much more than just the cards also!  (Although...my opinion...just to make the box for the cards is enough!  Haha.)  But look how cute...




I LOVE this Fruit Basket stamp set.  😍  Total swoon. 

Then check out these cards.  SO QUICK and easy to put together.  Yet the Tutti Frutti Designer Papers make it all so fabulous!


And fun tip!  The 2 1/4" inch circle punch is what we used to add that fun pop to the envelopes.  Just punch out a circle and adhere to the top of the envelope...making sure to leave some of the envelope adhesive still able to use.  😍




My heart just gets so giddy to see.  I. Love. It!!!  Let me know if you have any questions!

Shimmery Paste Love...April Club Card:

Want to see the card I taught my clubbers to make this week?!  It is using one of my absolute fave products in the Occasions Catalog...and you maybe haven't even noticed it yet!!!  It is the Shimmery White Embossing Paste....and IT. IS. FABULOUS.  Check out this card...


ColorsIsland Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst
Cardstock/Papers Island Indigo, Whisper White, Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight

Tools: Pattern Party Decorative Masks, Palette Knives, Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Petal Burst Embossing Folder, Best Badge Punch
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Shimmery White Embossing Paste
 
 
Have to admit...pretty much in love.  Haha.  LOVE this Badges and Banners stamp set...with coordinating punch...that is RETIRING!!!  So get it while you can!!!


And LOOK. AT. THAT. Shimmery Embossing Paste...oh man.  It adds such a cool texture and shimmer! 


If you are looking for a fun technique...look no further!  And it's so easy!  You just lay one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks over your cardstock, plop some paste on it with one of the Palette Knifes, scrape off all the excess, and lift up the mask!  Clean the mask and knife and let the paste dry (it's quick!).  So. Much. Fun!!!




So what do you think?!  Try it!  It is so much fun!!!  One last look at this cutie card...

I also have an apology!  I just took my kiddos out of town for Spring Break, and meant to update while I was gone.  But we had too much fun playing at the beach so didn't get anything posted!  But look how cute...



I just couldn't help it!  😀

I do have a fun card for you today!  I CASE'd this idea from the talented Cindy Schuster.  I saw a card she made and fell in love!  So here is my take on it...


Colors: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Crumb Cake

Stamps: Fruit Basket

Tools: Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack, 2 1/4" Circle Punch, Triple Banner Punch
Accessories: Delicate White Doilies, Gold 1/8" Ribbon, Gold 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush

Did you notice those punched out pineapples in the background?! 😍😍😍 Swoon!!!


Isn't this such a fun idea?!  I have more plans for this technique.  Hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!  Let me know if you have any questions!
