I had so much fun this weekend…I actually watched both my teenagers reading actual BOOKS….can you believe it ? I wasn't sure they knew how to read an actual book…I'm mean there was no mouse to turn the pages for them …lol Anyway, while they were doing that, it allowed me to get some uninterrupted stamping time in …I rediscovered how much fun it was to heat emboss…most times I'm too in a hurry or just too lazy to get out the "stuff"….I have to say there is something about the way heat embossing really make the colors more saturated and really just about pop of the page ….. not to mention shinny… I love shinny…
I used Button Buddies for the Flower image and the greeting is from Kindness Matters….I'm just giddy, with this card…super shinny… I swear I must have been a Mermaid in another life…love, love,love the Shinny…The base of the card is Concord Crush, the layer is Daffodil Delight…
Look at those punched out flowers, all of them are heat embossed…I used a variety of techniques, to get the different colors on the image before I set it with clear embossing powder…The purple-ish flower I heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder..so that one is sparkly and shiny….and I put a matching glimmer brad in the middle …
I have a few more embossing ideas to try out today… I can't wait till the kids leave for school…I also can't wait to show you how to heat emboss…So while I'm playing today …I also will be creating the cards for my Stamping 101 Class …that will be featuring Heat embossing. This class will be on Sept 1st from 10am to 12 Noon …the cost of the class is $15, don't forget all technique classes include 2-3 projects featuring that week's technique, and a 6×6 reference card in a protective sleeve….RSVP by August 25th and payment holds your spot in the class…
Don't forget the Buy 3 Get one Free Designer Series Paper ….
I'm so glad it's Saturday, a few tedious chores and then I get to play…..I have a few things floating around in my head for the Kindness Matters stamp set ….I started playing with it …I just love the butterflies…
Sorry about the shadows, the sun was not cooperating with me …..the base colors are Melon Mambo and Island Indigo….that color combo seems to be my favorite these days …Can you believe I fussy cut those little tiny butterflies…..and I used the Island Indigo Pattern paper….a few punches, little ribbon and Baker's twines …and that it …
Here is a quick close up of the fussy cutting…The butterflies curled up on their when I cut them out … and I just used mini glue dots to attach them.
In two weeks I'm going to the Stampin Up regional conference…and it is going to be one great weekend…Part of going is swapping cards with other demos, to get a variety of styles and ideas …and well I needed to make about 25 of the same card to do this …and I really like this card and it would be perfect for this …except … I'm sorry I'm not into fussy cutting THAT many butterflies…
So … I created this version …..It may or may not be the final version that I take with me to the regional conference …either case I still had fun making it …
It's the same basic layout, I just change up the layers and made it a little cleaner. not so much fussy design. I love Fussy design, little bows,strips of paper,matting punches …but when you are mass producing about 50 of them …..easy with a WOW.. is what you want …..
Have a great weekend everybody…..
Well I put all those pieces, that I shared with you yesterday, together …..
So what do you think? …… I think after seeing all those pictures from the Stampin'Up Convention …that my brain wanted to bring that garden to me …..I still think it needs a little something , but for the life of me I can't figure it out …..a ribbon ? or mount the whole card onto Concord Crush ? …..hum I just don't know …..
I have to admitt, I had a lot of fun with the details of the card…The Butterfly image is from the Kindness Matters stamp set…of course I had to put Designer Jewel Pearls on the Butterfly…I used the 5-Petal Flower Punch to make him pop….
Here you can see all the buttons, pearls, and rhinestones. I even added Crystal Effects to make it look like there were dew drops on the petals…
This wouldn't complete without some Vanilla Mist Smooch Sprtiz….. I love how it makes everything sparkly…..
If you want me to show you how to make these little paper flowers to embelish just about any project…..all you have to do is ask…..I'm here to serve you …

Between getting my teenagers ready for their first day back to school …..which is this morning by the way…and doing the not fun at all, business side of being a Stampin Up! Demo … My creativity has left the building just like Elvis …..I have several Projects sitting on my desk just waiting for that final piece to bring it all together …..So today …I thought I'd show you …well an idea that came with my first cup of coffee but then …by my second cup ….didn't really work… or the base part didn't … and what I am left with is what I'm calling
The Boho Blossom Butterfly Menagerie…….
I used the Butterfly stamp from the Kindness Matters Stamp Set and the Boho Blossom Punch to make this menagerie….. I love the word menagerie … I think it will my word of the day…..
Anyway ….. I'm going to play around with this today … and see what happens ….I'm the mean time If you have an idea of what to make with this …. PLEASE email me asap at Sherry@sherrystampinbella.com
Don't forget the B3GO on Designer series paper …and I have added new classes … so reserve your seat before the are gone …..
I am so excited today, I knew when I saw this Specialty Designer Series Paper , Morning Mocha, that it was going to be at the top of my ' Must haves" from the new Idea Book &Catalog. Ok Well I'm a coffee freak and I keep wanting to call the paper Morning Mocha latte…lol
Here is the first thing I made with the gorgeous paper
Check out that Purse !!!!!!!! Way Cool …..Now let me show you the paper real quick …..
These two sheets are FLOCKED…so the designs are raised and almost feel like velvet…It reminds me of wall paper from years and years ago….The Espresso Print, It the same design from the Stamp Set Elements of Style, one of my Favorites …..
Look at all these rich tones…it would make for some elegant and regal scrapbook pages ….not to mention that you could get a very formal masculine card or scrapbook page…For our Kings, Princes and Knights in Shining Armour…..
Ok … back to the project …..
I wish I could have a real purse that looked like this….
As soon as I saw this specialty Designer Series Paper … I knew that this project was in the bag…sorry bad pun …
I used Basic Black for the trim but I think the next one I'm going to uses Early Espresso. I used the Antique Brads to re-enforce the handles ….
Don't you just love it, when you surprise your self on how cute something came out…
I have to admit I can't remember where I got the pattern for this purse… I'm not that creative…..to design the pattern myself … but I can sure follow a pattern …So I have to give thanks and credit to whoever took the time and effort in creating it …..
Now on to the 3×3 note cards that fit inside this little gem…..
I used the Coordinating Stamp from Elements of Style to create the background Images …I also used the sentiment and flourish stamp from the Stamp set Kindness Matters…This is going to be one of my new Favorite stamp sets ….and of course I finished the card of with a little vintage trinket … a tiny brad that looks like a button ….
Here Again … Same elements ,,, just switching the color up to Cherry Cobbler
This note card has to be my Favorite….
I decided AFTER I sponged the edges of the sentiment Kindness Matters…that I wanted to use Pearl Smooch Spritz….I know it really doesn't show up in photos…such a bummer….anyway…when I spritzed it …the ink where I sponges started to bleed just a little bit… and created the coolest … pink-y Brown pearl effect…..you really have to see this card in real life…all pearly and shimmery…..As I said before, sometimes I surprise myself….lol
well Today was a long post …. I will let you get on with your day…
