Feels like Frost Meets Tropical Chic






Hello and Welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by. It is time for our monthly blog hop and I’ve got  a great encouragement card for you. 

I love the Feels like Frost paper and think that if you just use it a little differently then you can get a whole new look from what I call “winter themed” paper.  I added some of our gorgeous pretty peacock ink and the Tropical Chic stamp set and matching dies along with a little Smoky slate and made it a tropical themed card. 


Isn’t that awesome how just adding color changes the whole feel of the paper?!


I made this card to send with another one that I made a week ago. I keep meaning to send them out and time just gets away from me lol. Anyone else have this problem? Hopefully the recipients will like  them. 


Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the other awesome demonstrators playing along in this blog hop. 

Have a great day everyone!

Kylie's International Highlights | Winners Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to



I am so honored that I was able to make the top ten and thank you to everyone who voted for my card!!  I am very thankful to be hopping with the other wonderful and talented demonstrators!

The card I have for you today is one that I made to send to a very sweet lady for her dad :)  Since, I was making it I figured I could use it for this hop also and try to maximize my time! Something I am not very good at LOL.

This card uses the Rooted In Nature Stamp set and matching die set. It is a very beautiful set and can be used for masculine cards and feminine as well. Just by the color inks you are using!  I am not very good at masculine cards.. so I am hoping that he will like this one :)

Now on to the card!


I used the blueberry bushel cardstock as the base for the card.  I really hadn't used it much but it is a very lovely blue. I then used the garden green for the leaves, I stamped off  for the lighter tone of the leaf  that is on the bottom corner. I also used some of the dies that actually just emboss and used them on a strip of white paper. Then used the garden green ink pad and used a makeup brush to add color to the white strip.



I hope you enjoyed today's card!  And,you can check out the other amazing demonstrators with the links below.  Have a great day :)

Christmas Gleaming

Hi and welcome!! I’m so glad you stopped by!

For my project today I am playing with some of the new products in the occasions catalog. We have some beautiful products for all your seasonal needs. Gorgeous papers, beautiful stamps  and awesome embellishments that add that finishing touch!



I’ve used the Christmas Gleaming stamp set along with the Brightly gleaming paper... can I just say GORGEOUS!  On one side it has muted tones of the colors in that paper suite, buuttt on the other side is a beautiful copper accented paper.
This particular stamp set comes in a bundle or a suite or you can just get the stamp set on its own... But, why would you when those punches are awesome and you get a discount on the bundle lol!!

My card showcases the stamps and paper and I thought I’d make one of the ornaments into a sentiment piece using our new copper metallic ink.


What do you think? It’s really a very simple card the only added extra that I did was to emboss the pretty peacock piece of cardstock. But, it would look with or without the embossing.

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you’d like to see more of my projects just got the follow button. Have a great day!


You can find all these products in my shop Here

Kylie’s International Blog Hop Oct 2019



Hello!! Thanks for hopping by! I’m so excited to be in the Blog Hop this month.

The theme for this Hop is “encouragement “ which is something I think we all need once in a while!
It’s so nice for someone just to say great job! You’re the best! Or just a simple Thank you can brighten anyone’s day!

So, for today’s project I am using some of my all time favorite paper! The feels like Frost paper. Have you seen it yet? If not you really need to. Heck it out... or better yet let me just show it to you! ๐Ÿ˜‚


Believe me! The picture does not do it justice! It is absolutely stunning. For my card I am also using the bird balled bundle. This bundle comes with some terrific encouraging sentiments not to mention some beautiful birds and it comes with stitched shaped dies. Of course you can just purchase the stamp set by itself. But, why would you?  When you can get a 10% discount on the bundle! Awesome right!?

This is the card I made with the bundle and the beautiful paper! 



This paper is amazing! You can make anything with it and it looks stunning! Just pop a piece on a card base add a sentiment and ta-da! DONE!  This one is going out to a dear friend of mine so I wanted it to be extra special! And I love birds!! So why not?!

Here is a look at the bundle , in case you'd like to know what all is in it :) 

Ok, that's it for me! Thanks again for stopping by and happy hopping!!

Christmas countdown project kit /bonus!

Do you like advent calendars??
 If you said yes or even... I’m not sure lol. I’ve got the kit for you!!
This project kit is sooo super easy!!  Beautiful too. It has everything you need included. It does have a stamp set that you can use to add to it, but you don’t have to have it to complete the advent calendar.




Isn’t it pretty?!! But wait!!! There’s more!
Just by changing the papers you could totally make this into a birthday countdown...a November gratitude calendar, .... a vacation countdown, ..... or this...




I used the spooktacular Bash DSP and added some embellishments from some of our stamp sets and punches . Then printed out some numbers . Easy peasy!
 Now I have 2 advent calendars one for Halloween and one for Christmas! All you have to do is turn the boxes around. Since it has the notches to pull it out on both sides you can have 2 for 1! How awesome is that?!
  The possibilities are endless with this. Get some of our gorgeous papers and you could have a jewelry holder, an embellishment holder ... I could go on and on lol.

All of these products  can be found here.

Have a great day!

Robin

Smile

Hi and welcome!

Today I have a cute little card to show you featuring the stamp set called Capture the good. It’s brand new In this years catalog. I think it has a lot of potential to be used in all sorts of thingscards, scrapbooks, and journals just to name a few!

This is the stamp set...



Isn’t it cute!! Lots of possibilities with this one!
I thought I would use the main image as the background and the “focal image”... lol. Like that?? Focal.. camera... how I used that wording?? ... maybe it just amuses me ๐Ÿ˜‚ . Ok , past the bad pun.
I used the shimmery white paper, but for some reason it’s coming off a little green in the pictures.






I also cut out the camera after I stamped it so that I could give it a little dimension and I cut the lens out with 2 different circle punches so I could pop it up. Here’s a close up so you can see that . I think it just adds a little something to cards when you pop them up with dimensionals.





A really simple card but I think it’s a cute  and quick!
If you like this stamp set you can find it here.

Have a great day!

First Frost DSP ~Pretty in Purple

Hi and welcome!  Today I have an awesome card from the First Frost DSP. That will be available on September 4th to purchase. If you love it like I do. I would say get it while you can! I expect the initial supply to sell out quickly. It is that gorgeous!  One side has beautiful photo images of snowy scenes and flowers... and the colors ...Oh my!! Just stunning, and the other side is silver and white . What’s not to love?!

 I can’t seem to put this paper down! Which is good, because I’ll let you in on a little secret.... I tend to hoard my paper and not want to cut in to it! Sshhh don’t tel anyone . Hahaha I know I’m not alone in this!



Just look at the colors and image, isn’t it pretty! I embossed the flap of the envelope and the 
folding banner with the new Scroll embossing folder that’s also in the new occasions catalog.  Then I took a few dues from 3 different sets and used vellum and shimmery white paper to add the leaves behind the front sentiment. 

This is the front flap. It opens to show a message underneath. 


Than you open the card and see the inside. Isn’t that a cool fun fold card?  You can add a couple different sentiments and still have room to write your message๐Ÿ˜Š

Thanks for stopping by! If you love this DSP like I do it will be available September 4, 2019 and you can purchase it here.
Have a great day! 
Robin
