Vintage Leaves Bohemian DSP

Here is the last card I made using the 4-1/4" x 9" Blackberry Bliss card bases.  You can see the other two cards I made here and here.

Vintage Leaves Bohemian DSP

Basically, I just turned the card I shared yesterday from a portrait style card to a landscape card.   I used the beautiful leaf  images from the Vintage Leaves set in somewhat non-traditional colors to coordinate with the Bohemian DSP.

 I used the leaf to act as a closure for the card.  The only trick is to remember to put the Stampin' Dimensional in the right spot so the flap can easily tuck under the leaf.

This was a fun challenge for me.  Totally enjoyed finding different ways to use the 4-1/4" x  9" card base.  I am definitely going to do this again.   We are headed out to explore a new little city.  Have a fabulous day!

You've Got This Bohemian DSP

Remember this card that I posted on Sunday?  I mentioned that I was using up Blackberry Bliss card bases (4-1/4" x 9") and that I made 2 other cards.  This is card #2.

You've Got This Bohemian DSP

This was the original card that I had cut the bases for.  Doesn't it look very different than the card I posted earlier?

The sentiment is what keeps the card closed.  Did you notice the thick Bermuda Bay Baker's twine?

I have one more card to share with you using the same Blackberry Bliss card stock and it will be on the blog tomorrow.

Feel Goods and the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits

I was without internet this morning and have been on the go all day.  My fitbit says I have gone 18,815 steps so far today.  I am finally getting the chance to sit down and work on my blog post for the day (19 days in a row and counting!).  This is going to be a quick post  since we are leaving for dinner in just a few minutes.  

Feel Goods frame

This card is similar to this one that I posted earlier.  This time I used the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits to make the frame.

I can see a lot of uses for this frame.  I love how it shows off the sentiment.  Another quick and easy card for you.  Hopefully, I won't have any internet difficulties tomorrow and I will be able to post earlier in the day.

Simple Sunday: Bohemian Borders

I have a simple share for you to do.  I had a few leftover Blackberry Bliss card bases that were 4-1/4" x 9" scored at 5-1/2".  I wanted to see what I could come up with using these bases.  This is the first one I made and I will be sharing the other 2 this week.

Bohemian Borders and DSP

I made a simple pocket card.  The inside card measures 3-3/4" x 5-1/2".  I decided to keep it simple since there's already a lot going on with the Bohemian Designer Series Paper.

A Little Cup of Birthday Wishes

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Babies!

Blog hop header

Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!  This month it is all about Babies.  It has been a while since I had a baby in the house so we were all very excited to welcome Skye.  Skye is my great nephew and in this picture he is 7 months old.  

Something for Baby Skye frame

Isn't he just adorable?  I just love his hat.  To decorate his frame I cut a bunch of balloons based on the  colors that were in his shirt.  I also added a bunch of stars, cause after all he is one.

I cut off the bottom of the onesie to make the shirt.  Don't you just love a polka dot tie?

SDBH skye

I stamped the little dots from the Calling All Heroes stamp set onto Real Red card stock.  I wanted his name to stand out a little more so I cut the letters out twice and layered them so they were thicker.  This was a lot of fun to create.

Next on the hop is France Matin.  I know she has something adorable to share with you!

Best Thoughts and Watercolor

It is day 13 of my 31 Day Blogging Challenge.  It has not been easy and there have been days that I was posting at the last minute but I am happy that i have made it this far.  To reward myself I took a little time and did some watercoloring.

Best Thoughts  watercolor

I just love this big flower image from the Best Thoughts stamp set.   This set is an exclusive set available to  hosts.   I started by heat embossing the image with white embossing powder.  I used an Aqua Painter with Real Red and Old Olive ink refills to do the coloring.

 Corny thanks tute 1a

2. Attach the 1-1/2" x 5-3/4" Soft Suede strip at the score line to the back of the 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White piece.


3.  Layer this onto the card base.  Adhere the DSP to the right front of the card.  Fold the 1-1/2" strip over to the DSP and make pencil marks along the edges of the strip.  This will help you to position the Word Window punch. 

ACorny Thanks tute 3ab

4. Position the word window punch so the edge of the punch lines up with the fold in the card base and the pencil marks are evenly spaced and punch.

Acorny Thanks 4ab

5.  Apply adhesive to half of the 1-1/2" strip and attach the 3" x 3" Soft Suede piece.  Stamp the 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece and layer onto the Old Olive piece (2-3/4" x 2-3/4") and then on to the Soft Suede piece.
