Halloween: Embossed Layers Happy Halloween Card

Halloween: Embossed Layers Happy Halloween Card


Hi Everyone!

Today the Holiday Catalog goes Live! And I’m starting a 10 Days of Halloween to kick us off!

This card uses what I’m calling Inlay Embossed technique and the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle. You die cut out the image, in this case the word Wicked and the Spider from your layering cardstock. Die cut the images in a second color. Then drop in the second color images into the negative space of the first color. Emboss!

You can check out my Facebook Live Video HERE! if you wish to see it made!

Red, White & Bloom Card using Daisy Punches

Red, White & Bloom Card using Daisy Punches


Hi Everyone! Welcome to our Glitter Queen’s Hop featuring Anything Red, White and Blue!
A local florist advertised this slogan and I thought it clever!

A take on the American flag using the 2 sizes of Daisy Punches by Stampin’ UP! Stamp images from Daisy Lane stamp set using tone on tone. Layer over a coordinating color unstamped, punched daisy and bling it up with Gold Faceted Gems! You could use the Silver Faceted Gems or any center embellishment.

If sending overseas, I would recommend using a yellow cardstock center punched out with circles or the Perennial Essence Floral Centers if you didn’t want any reflective elements.

I used the Corrugated 3D embossing folder to add my “Flag Stripes”

Since the front was busy, I thought keeping the inside sentiment simple would look the best. It’s from Daisy Lane stamp set too!

A cheerful card to any military personnel stateside or anyone who loves Americana!

A list of supplies used can be found below. Now let’s see what my creative friends have made to inspire us! Please keep hopping! Up next is Tracy!

Come Sail Away! It’s All About Men Glitter Queens’ Blog Hop

Come Sail Away! It’s All About Men Glitter Queens’ Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Blog Hop!

I love that our theme this month is around stamping for the men in our lives! We celebrated my dad’s 80th birthday last week. (this post is not his card -wink) And HE keeps all the cards I make for him. So we know our creations are special to the guys too!

Today I have a coordinating card and gift box for you featuring products found in the Come Sail Away Suite of products.

Product List


For the card: Measurements –

  • Sahara Sand Cardbase 4-1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ & 4″ x 1/4″
  • Come Sail Away 4″ x 5-1/4″ & 4″ x 1-1/4″  with scrap to make the DAD

General Instructions:

  •  With the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch, punch out a circle with the Designer Paper. Cut in half. These are the “D”s.
  •  Cut a 2-1/4″ tall triangle. The base is 1-1/2″. What I did is cut a 2-1/4 x 1-1/2 rectangle. Along the 1-1/2 side, marked the half way point or 3/4. That is the top point of triangle and cut to the bottom. The triangle is the “A”
  •  With a sponge dauber, use Sahara Sand ink to ink around the edges of DAD. Crinkle the letters for added texture.

  •  Add the Designer paper to the Night of Navy layer. Add the 1/4″ strip of Night of Navy.
  •  Add the coordinating baker’s twine from the suite.
  •  Adhere to cardbase. Add DAD with dimensional foam dots.
  •  Stamp inside.

For box: Measurements:

  • Outside
    •  Night of Navy 3″ x 3″
    •  Designer Paper 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″
  • Inside
    • Night of Navy 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
    • Designer Paper 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″

General Instructions:

  •  With brayer and Night of Navy and Balmy Blue ink, brayer the MAT side of the mini pizza box. The boxes have a waxy or shiny side and a mat side. TIP start with lighter color when inking this way. So start with the Balmy Blue then brayer with Night of Navy.
  •  Stamp images from Sailing Home using Night of Navy ink and Sahara Sand Cardstock. I used ink left on the brayer to lightly bray images. Die cut images with coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies ( Save 10% when you order the bundle.)
  •  Add cardstock and designer paper layers together and tie baker’s twine around layers. Glue to box.
  •  Add images with dimensional foam dots.
  • Add Sail Away Trinket.

  •  Inside: Stamp sentiment directly on designer paper. Add cardstock and designer paper layers to inside lid.
  •  Add compose element (punched out with 1-1/2″ circle punch) with dimensional.

I hope you enjoyed my projects for you!

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Does Your Baby Need Changed Shower Game

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Does Your Baby Need Changed Shower Game

Hi Everyone! Our Glitter Queen Hop Theme is Saying Goodbye to Our Favorite. Holy Cow! That’s hard for me because there are so many retiring that I love! So I selected one that is probably my all-time favorite baby set, Sweet Baby.

My sister is hosting a baby shower next month, and wanted to play the Dirty Diaper Game. Only she didn’t know if it fit into her more sophisticated shower. I came up with this versions called “Does Your Baby Need Changed?”  

I KNEW Sweet Baby would fit the style of the party yet still allow for a little silliness. 

The Dirty Diaper game is guest get handed a diaper. When ready to play, everyone opens their diaper. The guest with the brown diaper wins. So again (smile) to make it a tad more fancy, I am calling my version, Does the Baby Need Changed. Same thing. When ready to play, the guests opens the blanket to see if their baby needs changed. The guest whose baby needs changed…wins!
