Christmas Card using Eastern Medallion Dies With Video Tutorial

watermarked(2017-05-19-1116)

Hey! Just wanted to pop in and showcase a completely different way of using the new Eastern Palace Bundle! Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I create cards all year long to give to my family and friends.  When I first saw the dies, my mind immediately went to a wreath and this beautiful, simple card was born!  I’m using the new in color Tranqil Tide cardstock, cherry cobbler cardstock and 1/8″ gold ribbon that is retiring. The sentiment is stamped with versamark. The stamp set Reason for the Season is also retiring May 31 and I will be in mourning for it as it is absolutely beautiful!  I hope you enjoy the video and please subscribe to my youtube and blog for more tutorials.  Links to buy product from my online store are below! Hope you have a blessed day.

HB Gorgeous Sneak Peeks and June Class Annoucement!

Hey crafty friends!! Just wanted to share a couple of cards using the NEW upcoming stamp/die bundle called Happy Birthday Gorgeous and some of the new incolors!!

This first card uses retiring dsp called A Little Foxy, I use the B sides of all this paper just for the fun dots, chevrons and stripes.  I love the grays and blues used also!  The flowers are stamped on the background using Calypso Coral Ink.  The punched flowers are from the retiring (and now sold out) petite petals punch which I am still in mourning over and you will probably still see on my cards. Fortunately several of the die sets have similar flowers but the punch is still my go to as it’s quick and easy!

This beautiful card uses just the stamp set Happy Birthday Gorgeous and 2 of the new incolors: Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist.  I also used Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral and I’m loving this summery, bright combo!  The new stamp/die set and the 2 new incolors will be available for purchase on June 1, 2017!

CLASS ANNOUNCEMENT! As you know I have started posting Youtube videos and have decided to start monthly product based classes starting with our new catalog in June.  I will be posting more details in the next week, but basically I will be designing 3 projects and with the bundle purchase you receive the materials to create the projects and access to a facebook group with videos on creating the projects.  June’s class will be using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle and will include a bag, a tag, and a card!  More details to come!

Hoping you have a blessed day!

Best Birds Spring Card & Eastern Palace Notecard Video Series

I love this little bird stamp and just had to use up the rest of the random stamped background from the color challenge card I made a couple of weeks ago!  The background is stamped with Touches of Texture.  The bird, branch and sentiment is from Best Birds which is in the current catalog but is carrying over to the new one that debuts June 1, 2017!  Colors used are pear pizazz, peekaboo peach, flirty flamingo, basic black, so saffron.

As promised I created six videos showcasing the Eastern Palace beginner bundle suite and posted them daily on my Facebook business page http://www.facebook.com/byrdsblessings but I decided to link them up here also! I hope you enjoy them and make sure to subscribe to my Youtube for more videos on cute, simple projects soon!  Ya’ll have a blessed day!

Sketch Challenge using Jar of Love

So I was invited to be a guest designer at Splitcoast Stampers as part of the Creative Crew  from May through August 2017!  I am so incredibly honored and excited to take on this challenge!! We are given five challenges a month to a specific theme and design a project that we post to encourage and inspire our fellow demonstrators (and others!!) to use the product we purchase.  The theme for May is Suite Surprises and I have dedicated five separate blog posts to each of the projects I have designed.  I hope you enjoy and are inspired by my artwork and as always if you don’t have a demonstrator, I would love help with your Stampin’ Up! Needs. Contact me or hit the shop now button up in my menu!

I sometimes struggle with card sketches and I am SO not used to doing one layer cards that this one was certainly a struggle LOL!  I partially case’d  the sample card for Jar of Love from the brand new catalog coming June 1, 2017. I just put my own spin on it. I LOVE ghost stamping with white ink first and then over stamping with soft colors.  I used rich razzleberry, pear pizazz and the brand new in color fresh fig.  Enjoy!
