Bloomin' Love & Bloomin' Heart Easel Card

 Hello and Welcome to my blog.  Today I'm sharing the second card for my Bloomin' Love Stamp camp.  Now I've stamped all my cards as Valentines but they could easily be Anniversary, Wedding or even Birthday.  I will be posting lots of ideas for using this bundle over during this month so visit again soon.

  To make the card base you can use 8 1/2 x 11 card stock.  The heart dies i used are retired-you can use any shape die to make the easel card.  Basically you measure your die height and width and cut the width by 11 from card stock, then you score at the height.  measure up from the score line to edge of the 11.  Say the die was 6 inches high and you score at six the measurement up from the score line will be 5.  You take this measurement and divide in half, in the example that would be 2.5 (5 divided by 2)  so the second score line would be at 8.5  you then fold over at 6 and up at 8.5, Then you run through bigshot with the die having a gap at the top creating a hinge.  You then adhere a full die cut to the flap and you have your base.  I think we may need a video.  leave me a comment if you want a video added.

  I have instructions for assembling this card if you click on the TAMS link.

Blogging Friends Blog Hop

   Welcome to the February first edition of Blogging Friends Blog Hop!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that met online and love to share online with each other and with you!  Take a look at my Valentine inspired project and then click the link at the bottom to go on to the next blog and check them out!

   My share is going to be one of my cards at my stamp camp this month.  The instructions for the card are pretty easy.  The card is a 6 x 6 cut from Rose Red, cut card to 6 x 12, score at 6. Cut Blushing Bride to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 (Cut 2) and DSP to 5 5/8 by 5 5/8. Cut Large circle scallop heart of Rose Red, Cut Whisper White heart and you will need a same size double sided permanent adhesive heart. to apply to the white heart.  Cut the blushing Bride glimmer paper with the backing toward the die and use the precision base plate.
Apply the adhesive to white heart, remove backing and apply die cut heart. Sprinkle generously with dazzling diamonds rub glitter into adhesive tap off excess. Layer onto scallop heart with snail. Stamp desired sentiment on banner. Assemble card as shown.  Be sure to tie ribbon on to blushing bride and DSP layer and then use dimentionals on the back to adhere to card front and on the back of Rose Red scallop heart avoiding the dimentionals actually being on the ribbon. Stamp envelope and inside as desired.   You will need a big envelope so good thing stampin' up! sells the envelope punch board.  Cut a 9 1/2 inch square of envelope paper and start at 4 3/4 line to score and punch the first time then match the first score line to the little foot assembly and continue till all sides are punched, round the corners and adhere to look like a super cool big envelope.

January Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

  Happy New Year-This last month I've been putting the craft room back together after adding a powder room and then having it painted.  I got quite behind for Christmas and somehow Christmas still came-and went and now here it is a New Year!  Welcome 2016!

I took some picture as I put this card together.  I cut the Sunburst out in silver and gold glimmer paper.  Now the trick to getting the two tone to line up.  I cut the glimmer papers and an adhesive sheet (sorry they are retired now) all to 4 x 5.25.  when I cut the glimmer papers I lined the edge of the glimmer papers up in the same corner of the die for each of the  colors.

 Then I peeled the liner paper back halfway on the adhesive sheet and then lined the gold layer up with the edge and placed it down. 
 I then pieced in the silver negative spaces one at a time.
 carefully I peeled the adhesive sheet backing away and then carefully placed the piece on the black card front.

 The image was stamped in versamark embossed in gold embossing powderand  cut out with a circle framelit.

  a big bow was tied in the cord and it was glued to the back.  the sequin trim was added and it was all adhered to the doily.
 since the doily was being adhered to glimmer paper I used Tombo multi-purpose glue.

Here is a little close-up.  Please continue on to the next blog!  See you next month!  All the supplies are listed below the blog links.
