Everything is Rosy cards 21-23

Hello Friends,
Here is the next batch of cards 21-23 using the Everything is Rosy bundle. The bundle comes with a whole bunch of pre-printed, die-cut embellishments and I still have a bunch left over. 
For the first two cards, I attached a bunch of the embellishments to a 5 x 3 3/4" piece of whisper white cardstock, then I ran the piece through the big shot with the rectangle framelit dies - so I got two cards out of the one sheet ad stitching on both the inside and the outside of that rectangle frame to add to both cards. 
The last card, I stamped and fussy cut the flower. (which I find relaxing) It does come with dies. 
So fun!







Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Below is the shopping list for the projects if you need it.

Love,
Selene

Everything is Rosy Cards 17-20

Hello Friends!

I'm a little later than normal today. I am working to pull EVERYTHING out of my craft room so we can lay a new floor this weekend!  

I ordered some new storage from Ikea and it's scheduled to be delivered on Monday, so we need to lay the floor to get ready for it!  :)  

This one is the designer paper that I call the lipstick swatch paper. It's so bright and pretty and makes some super pretty cards in a snap!  
I will try to post some photos of the renovation on my creative Facebook page later throughout the weekend!  Not a member?? Click here to request access. 

So, let's take a closer look at these projects!  These are so super easy, I'm going to skip the measurements today.  However, I cut the layers at the same time at the very beginning.  So if you check out the original video back this week, you'll see all the details for that.

For this one, I stamped off with a large flower on layer 3, then stamped the center full strength melon mambo on melon mambo paper.  So fun!  And these Glass, Rose Gold embellishments are amazing!! check out the square photo above, it's so hard to get a good photo of it that actually shows how pretty it is!


 Here's another look at card 17.  Happy Dance...

Card 18, same thing, thinner banner.  I used a blender pen and some melon mambo ink to color the precut embellishment.  Just color, pop it out of the sheet and add some Stampin' Dimensionals for hight.  Awesomeness!




Card 19, I used the two squares of the patterned paper and turned one so they are facing each other for visual interest.  What do you think?  Something different again...





For card 20, the designer paper is 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" and sliced at 1 1/2".  Then I just flipped the top over, so it came out of the same piece of designer paper.  Quick and pretty!  



Ready to shop?  Here's what I used. 




Thank you for stopping by today!

Love,

Stampin' Up! Everything is Rosy, Cards 15 and 16

 Good Morning Friends!

Today, This is cards (15 and 16 of 29) for the Everything is Rosy Bundle that I made
I photographed these a few different ways because it's hard to get the vibrant reflection in the shot. 
I have always loved a simple strip on the diagonal to add interest to a card, but I love even more the way this first project came together.  
I used a blender pen and melon mambo ink pad to add some color to the die cut image.  These die cuts came pre-embossed with the rose gold elements!  They are super fun and easy to work with!

Card 15:
The 1/2" strips of white extend to the edge of the card base from behind. Such a different look!

Base Layer: Thick Whisper White 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored and folded in half
Layer 2: (x2) Whisper White 1/2" strips of paper
Layer 3: Night of Navy 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 4: Whisper White 5" x 3 3/4"
Layer 5: (x2) Melon Mambo Pattern DSP, of the Everything is Rosy DSP, 1/2" strips
Layer 6: Die Cut Embellishment from the suite, watercolored and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

 Here's another look at the same card with a Navy background.  :)

Card 16 has a super simple layout. I love the single die cut that could get lost on the first glance but makes your eye come in for another peek!  :)

The measurements for this are super simple.  The designer paper is cut to 4" x 2 1/2", with the melon mambo mat, just an 1/8" bigger on two sides.  The congratulations is stamped on another one of the die cuts that came in the bundle and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Fabulous!!  


Thanks for stopping by today!  If I've inspired you to get your kit, I have easy ordering options/ my shopping list for all 29 projects below!  Thanks so much!

Love,
Selene

Everything is Rosy, by Stampin' Up, Cards 12, 13 and 14 (of 29)

Good Morning Friends!

I have another batch of cards for you today using this awesome bundle!

First - Chris, thank you for your comments!  They will keep me smiling and blogging.  I love that you appreciate the posts!

Okay! let's get started! Card 12, I want to thank my friend Julie Davidson for the inspiration for the layout on this one!  I changed it up a bit, but she inspired this card!

If you missed the original video of how I set up for these cards - and created the first six LIVE on the fly, here is the replay:

Card 12 Measurements:

Base Layer: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2", stamped with a leaf stamp in Night of Navy.
Layer 2: one of the pre-die cut shapes from the pack, cut in half and adhered to the back of layer 3 on both sides.
Layer 3: Whisper White 4" x 2 3/4"
Layer 4: Striped layer on the left (came from the back of the pink floral pattern DSP, out of the same kit, 2 1/2" x 1" 
Layer 5: Rose Gold Leaf Pattern, 2 1/2" x 1 3/8"
Layer 6: Thank you is stamped on a precut piece that comes in the kit. Adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.




Lucky 13!  The star of this card, that you don't quite see from the photographs is the Rose gold adhesive backed mirror embellishments. They are really hard, just like glass and you can feel that when they come off the transfer sheet. 

Self-adhesive, shiny glassy awesomeness.


Card 13 Measurements: 
Base Layer: Thick Whisper White 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored and folded in half
Layer 2: Night of Navy 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 3: Whisper White: 3 7/8" x 2 3/8"
Layer 4: 3 3/4" x 2 1/4"
Layer 5: 4 1/4" x 3/4" Strip, cut with scissors to make the "v"





For card 14, the Rose Gold die cut layer came from a 1" strip on both sides of the 5 1/2" x 1 1/2" layer.  
It is so pretty and shiny in real life! 



Need this kit?  Here's the shopping list for what I used on all 29 cards.  I still have a ton leftover!  



See you tomorrow for another batch!

Love,
Selene

Stampin Up Everything is Rosy, Card 9, 10 and 11 (of 29)

Hello Friends!

I'm really having fun sharing this bundle, Everything is Rosy. For this set of cards (9, 10 and 11) of 29 that I made, I focused on the one leaf stamp to make the backgrounds and used the night of navy ink pad.
I used a paintbrush to add an accent to the center of each of the leaves with the Rose Gold shimmer paint that comes with the bundle.

If you already purchased this bundle I hope that I'm giving you some ideas on what you can do what your investment!  Can you believe we aren't even halfway there on the projects yet?


Card Nine:
Base Layer: 11 x 4 1/4" 
Layer 2: 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 3: 5 x 3 3/4"



Here's a close up of a hand-tied bow.  So easy to make it look pretty!  Swoon! 



Card Ten has a funky extended background.  That leaf goes all the way across the front and back of the card, and ties to layer 3. so easily!

Card Ten:
Base Layer: 11 x 4 1/4" 
Layer 2: 4 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Layer 3: 4" x 3"



I just love the layout of Card 11.  We can call this the ten-pound card if you want.  I did go crazy with the layers.  This one, I actually smeared some paint on the top layer, and that's where my bow is! Can't see it anymore!  I love the layout on this one.

Card Eleven:
Base Layer: 11 x 4 1/4" 
Layer 2: 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 3: 5 x 3 3/4"
Layer 4: 3 1/4" Square
Layer 5: 4 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Layer 6: 4" x 3"


Here's a closeup for you!


If you haven't purchased your kit yet, here is a shopping list I used for all 29 cards!  See you tomorrow for another batch of cards made with this same suite!



Love,
Selene

Stampin' Up!, Everything is Rosy - Cards 4 thru 8 (of 29)

Hello Friends,

Thanks for popping by today! If you missed yesterday's FB live replay, and the first four projects I made with this suite (live), you can click here for that post.

Today's cards feature a One Sheet Wonder from a 6x6" piece of designer series paper.


  1. I started by cutting the 6x6" piece down to 4x4."
  2. Next, I cut that piece on the diagonal to make the first two projects shown below.
  3. That left me with a 4x2" piece to add to the bottom of card three.
  4. The fourth project had a nice strip leftover, and I cut that to 5 1/2" x 1 1/2"




Card One uses the first diagonal strip right to the corner:



Card Two uses the other Diagonal piece, but i brought it in a little so you could see the white border of the card base:

Card Three uses the 4x2" piece of designer paper at the bottom of the card base:



Finally Card Four, the Designer paper piece is cut to 5 1/2" x 1 1/2":


To see me cut up this sheet, you can check out the video I made with yesterday's blog post here.

I have WAY MORE projects to share with you.  I'm going to break them up by the patterned paper I used and post them every day this week!
