Simple Rooster

Today I'm sharing the second of 6 cards I shared in my Sweet Sixteen party in my VIP Group on Facebook.  If you're in my group you can find all the videos to these projects there.  If you're not in my group, join today!  All are welcome!  Today's card is a fun quick card for those times you're in a hurry.  The images and greeting are from the Home To Roost Set (HURRY you can only earn this set FREE through March 31, 2019)!!  While I love to color this image sometimes coloring can take too much time or it's a little intimidating if you're new to stamping so I wanted to use this rooster without coloring him.  I stamped him in Early Espresso ink and used a splotchy textured image from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set to add some color.  I stamped it Mango Melody.  I punched it out with the 2" circle punch and then added some Linen Thread behind it. I mounted it to the card that's been stamped with the wheat and layered up with some DSP and cardstock.  What a fun card!!!

Watercolored Rooster

Today I'm sharing the first of 6 cards I shared in my Sweet Sixteen party in my VIP Group on Facebook.  If you're in my group you can find all the videos to these projects there.  If you're not in my group, join today!  All are welcome!  Today's card is a fun watercolored card.  I love this rooster image from the Home To Roost Set (HURRY you can only earn this set FREE through March 31, 2019)!!  I stamped my image in Staz On on some Shimmer White Cardstock then used my Aqua Painters to color him and add lots of splatter.  I love the look of messy water coloring so I wasn't too careful about my colors bleeding out of the lined area.  The card was simply finished with a greeting and some layers.  I love this fun card!

Fable Friends and Blends!

I've been a little slow getting back into things after Spring Break.  I've done plenty of stamping and class planning and I can't wait to show you what I've done.  But I've been slow to post here.  I'm slowly getting back into a routine.  Today I have a super cute card to share with you. I made this card yesterday on in my weekly Facebook Live.  I love how fun and whimsical the Fable Friends stamp set is and I love how cute these images are when they're colored.  This card has a fun window! Check out my video for all the details on this card.  Head to YouTube and subscribe to my channel!  Shop my online store here.

Hopping Bunny

Don't you love it when a card comes out just as you've imagined it would? That's how I feel about this hopping bunny card.  I have a vision that I wanted to make the bunny 'hop' down the card and I did it!  I couldn't be happier with this card!!!!  The bunny is attached to a window sheet that is behind the Coastal Cabana layer allowing you to move him along the card.  Stampin' Up! announced that the Bunny Punch isn't available right now, but make sure you check out my video I have a cute punch art bunny to get around it if you don't have the punch and I give a few more options to how to make this card without the punch.

The scallop grassy border just make it even cuter when he hops!  When I mail this card I'll make sure to have the bunny on the far left side covering the greeting.  Then the recipient would have to move him to read the greeting.  SOOOOOO cute!!!  I demoed how to make this sweet bunny on in my Ruth's Stamping Corner VIP Group on Facebook.  If you've missed it I've posted the video below.
The bunny comes from the Best Bunny Bundle in the Annual Catalog.  I colored her using Soft Suede and Petal Pink Stampin' Blends and Lovely Lipstick for the bow.  Check out the video for all the details on this card.  Shop my online store here.

Gingham Gala Baskets

At my class over the weekend I gave out these ADORABLE little Easter baskets to all my guests for attending.  They're sooooo cute with that Gingham Gala DSP!  I love them all lined up like that.  It just looks like spring!
The baskets are super simple to make.  Start with a 4 1/2" Square piece of DSP and score at 1 1/2" inches on all four sides.  Trim up the score lines on two sides, make sure they're opposite each other.  Then just bring those tabs together in the middle.  I saw these adorable baskets made by Ronda Wade on her Facebook page a couple weeks ago.  She made much larger ones I modified the size to make mini ones for my class!
The lids were a process, it took me 4 times to get a lid I was happy with!  You'll need 2 pieces of cardstock that are 2 1/2" x 2 1/4" on the 2  1/2" side score at 1/2" and 2".  On the 2 1/4" side score at 1/2" and 1 5/8".  The lids can be a little weird to put together, I shared all the details on the lid and these baskets on my Facebook Live this week.  If you haven't joined my Ruth's Stamping Corner Facebook page join today to see me demo these baskets.  Or check out the video below.

Baseball Z-Fold

My BFF's son's birthday is today so of course I had to send him a super cute card!  First, please let me apologize for the pictures.  They're pretty wonky and crooked.  Honestly I was rushing to get them done to get the card in the mail.  Plus the kids have been home since last Thursday so there's that distraction too LOL! Back to the card.  He is a big baseball player so I wanted to make him a really cute baseball themed card!
I made this one a Z-fold card and did some partial die cutting of them baseball.  It's connected on the front but on the inside panel I've cut half of the circle so that the baseball swings to the front of the card.  CUTE!!!!  Partial die cutting is easy to do, for this card I simply lined up my top plate over the part of the framelit that I wanted cut.  The framelit will only cut where there's pressure from that top plate.  So only half the circle cut. The stitches on the baseball were made with the Triple Banner punch I just kept punching tiny chevrons until I had enough for stitching, this was a little tedious.  The Soft Suede layer in the back is pretty awesome!  I crumpled the cardstock over and over again until it was starting to separate, then I carefully pulled it apart and adhered it down. When you separate the cardstock like this the inside feels like suede or leather, really cool.  I thought it might mimic a baseball glove.  Such a cute card for a special 12 year old!

Flowers Class

Over the weekend I held a fun class that featured all kinds of Flower themed cards.  This fun Flowers and Frills class was on of my favorites.  I LOVED all the cards!!!  This first one features the Painted Seasons Sale-a-Bration Bundle.  This amazing bundle that you can earn free with a $100 order includes the Painted Seasons stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper. 
They're both amazing and this month only you can purchase the coordinating framelits!  LOVE!!!  We did a fun vellum over lay on this card with makes for a really beautiful and elegant card.
The next one features the Bloom by Bloom Suite.  I love this Designer Series Paper and stamp set!  We also paired it with the Part Of Your Story Sale-a-Bration Stamp set.  It has the best greetings and it's a great one to have on hand.
You could pair any color with black for a stunning card.  I have always loved Black, Silver and Melon Mambo.  It's so gorgeous together and kind of reminds me of the 80's.  I love this combo especially with that beautiful floral image from the All That You Are Set.
Finally, if you thought the Melon Mambo card was stunning, just look at this Gold Foil Cardstock that's embossed.  Oh my gravy!  It's breathtakingly gorgeous!  The foil is embossed with the new Country Floral Embossing Folder in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  This folder is free with a $50 purchase and I can't recommend this folder enough.  It's amazing!!!!  To shop for products head to my online store here.  My next class in April is all about Masculine cards.

Abstract Impressions Birthday Wishes

I have a gorgeous card for you today.  I love the colors on this card and the pops of gold. I have to tell you,  I've been a little addicted to these colors lately, they just scream spring to me. They're so bright and fun! I used Lovely Lipstick, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green and a little Pineapple Punch. I pulled out my Abstract Impressions stamp set for this card. Those flowers are effortless and so beautiful. For the rose I only used Lovely Lipstick, I stamped the bottom layer off twice, the middle layer off once and the top layer is full strength. You don't need a stack of ink pads to use this set. I loved the layered look and stamping off is a great way go build those layers when you don't have a lot of ink pads.
For the greeting, it's one of my favorite things on this card by the way I used the More Than Words Stamp Set from Sale-a-bration Coordination.  After I stamped the 'wishes' in Lovely Lipstick I gold heat embossed the 'birthday' right over it. I love this look. I finished the card with some gold sequins.

Let It Ride

The Let It Ride stamp set has been calling my name!  I finally had to break down and get it and I'm so glad I did!  I love the horse images and the fun greetings.  This super, quick and simple card was fun to make.  I love the rustic look to it.  For some extra shading on the horse I used my Wink Of Stella pen and just went over the mane of the horse, it bleeds the color a little for a gorgeous look while also adding a little sparkle-you know I love that!  I can't wait to play with this set more!
