"Lost Without You" Stampin' Up Card

Happy Monday! Today, I am sharing a card using the Going Global stamp set.  I am so sad that this stamp set is retiring.

Royal Diva Tips:

1) Fold the 5 ½ x 8 1/2” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in half to make a 4 ¼ x 5 ½” card.

2) Cut a piece of the black printed designer series paper (DSP) to 2 ½ x 5 ½”.

3) Adhere black printed DSP to front of card using adhesive.

4) Stamp the greeting “I’m Lost Without You” in Mellow Moss ink at the bottom right corner.

5) Fold the 5/8” Striped Cotton Ribbon twice as in picture. Place some adhesive to DSP, and to the ribbon center to keep it folded, and adhere ribbon to card front. (Dimensionals from the compass
will also help keep it in place.)

6) Ink the compass stamp in Mellow Moss ink. Punch out with a 2" circle punch.

7) Use Paper-­Piercing tool to poke hole into center of the Mellow Moss compass. Place small “compass like” Antique Brad into center of the compass and fasten the ends.

8)Place two Stampin’ Dimensionals on back of compass, one towards the top and the bottom trying to stay clear of the folded ribbon.

For You with Birthday Blooms

So today I am sharing a different card.  I was suppose to post my card featuring the a Stamps of Life set, but I forgot to take pictures and everything.  Life has been so busy especially since starting my weight loss journey.

Today, I am sharing a card I made for my Stampin' Up! blog featuring the Birthday Blooms set.  It's a beautiful set especially when it's paired with the Birthday Bouquet DSP.

For my card, I decided to watercolor my images.  I even did some fussy cutting.  I was inspired by a tag I found on Pinterest, but decided to make it into a card.  I just love how this turned out!

Life Happens Over Coffee

Happy Monday! I am excited about today's post!  I am showcasing a couple of projects created using the Coffee Break, Coffee Candies, and Coffee Dies from Jaded Blossom.   I absolutely adore these sets and dies.  Then again, I love coffee! 

For my card, I used the French Manor Cricut Cartridge for the table.  I decided to cut out the icons from the Coffee Candies set and place on top of the table.  I just love how one of the cups is leaning as if it's laughing really hard.  I decided to add some sequins around for some extra embellishments.

I hope you enjoy today's card!  Stop by tomorrow for a French fry treat!
