Oh, How I Love Flowers Rolodex Card

Hey everyone! I’m back with another quick project I created for the Easter Swap I was in awhile back. I used a Rolodex Diecut that I had purchased from Stampin’ Up! several years ago(retired). But there are Memorydex diecuts that can be used instead and you can find those diecuts HERE and HERE.
I did a lot of layering with what I had on hand in my stash. I started by adding a Medallion Diecut (retired) to the corner of the rolodex card. I know you can barely see it but it was how I built up the layering on the card. 
I cut a chipboard banner in to and placed next to the medallion diecut and the other half of the banner I placed on top of the medallion. I added Foam Pop Dots to the other end of the banner. I backed a flower sticker with cardstock and fussy cut and added behind the banner. I placed flowers and leaves diecuts from my stash also to the card.
I finished off by adding two sentiments from my stash to complete the rolodex card. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hot Pink Floral Extended Mini Book Case

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Case Diecut with a fun added “twist”!
After applying an Adhesive Sheets to both sided of a piece of Chipboard I added patterned cardstock to each side, placed the diecut on top and run through the Diecut Machine. As in the photo below you can see where I cut an extra set of “flaps”. 
I adhered the “extra set” of flaps to the front of the case.
I also glued the bottom halves and the lid together.
I cut strips of patterned cardstock the same size as the outside and inside of the case and adhered to give it a cleaner look. 
I cut cording and tied to the closure and added a button, sequin and gem to the center of the closure.

I added an assortment of flowers and leaves, handmade and store bought, to the top of the lid along with lace, cheese cloth, thread bows and pearl sprays.
There you have it! I absolutely LOVE this bookcase diecut and how versatile this diecut is! 
For more inspiration stop by Eileen’s blog to see the latest projects from the rest of team! You can find the latest blog post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Let it Snow Tag

Hi everyone! I am back after a little break from the holidays with my first project of the new year for Momenta! This tag takes no time to create. Maybe 30 to 45 minutes at the most but lets get started!
I started by placing a tag into the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
Next I inked three Art Daubers with the inks from the Blue to Teal Ombre Pigment Ink Pad and inked over the embossed image and edges of the tag.
I cut one Intricate Snowflakes Diecut from mint cardstock and cut three of the snowflakes from the diecut.
Next I cut one snowflake and two of the tiny star bursts in a light blue cardstock from the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and Diecuts and lightly inked the edges of all the diecuts. 
I placed Foam Pop Dots behind the snowflake and star burst dies before placing onto the tag. 
I adhered the three intricate snowflakes dies randomly on the tag along with sequins and gems.
I finished the tag by tying ribbon into a bow at the top of the tag and called it finished! 
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Count Every Beautiful Thing Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back today and wanted to share this colorful and slightly quirky tag I created using Eileen Hull’s Blends Inks.

I started by inking my glass tray with Sunshine and Melon Blends Inks, adding water and placing the tag into the ink mixture. Once the tag was completely covered I removed and let dry. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Berry Pigment Ink from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection and randomly inked over the tag.

I inked the Doll Faces Rollagraph with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink, rolled onto a piece of Watercolor Paper  and cut out the face of girl looking straight ahead. I inked the Butterfly Wooden Stamp with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. Again I inked the glass tray with following Taos Petal Point: Amber and the Mermaid Paintbox Papaya Cream and Berry Inks. I added water and painted the butterfly image with ink mixtures and let dry. I fussy cut the butterfly image out, cut down the middle, added Clear Glitter Glue around outer edge of butterfly and once dry I adhered the butterfly wings, one on either side of the face image. 
I placed Watercolor Paper  on the Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle Large Diecut, placed between the cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineBefore cleaning the glass tray I randomly placed the scalloped rectangle diecut into the leftover ink mixture from butterfly. Then removed and let dry. Next I inked the glass tray with Sunshine Blends Ink, added water, placed the scalloped rectangle diecut into the ink mixture and once completely covered with  the ink mixture I removed and let dry. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Amber Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and stamped onto the scalloped rectangles diecut.  

I placed the “Play in the Sun” stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto the lower half of the scalloped rectangle diecut. Next I inked two leaves from a leaf sprig punch with Turtle Pigment Ink and once dry adhered next to the word ‘thing” along with sequins and a gem.

I placed vellum on top of the Delightful Circles Diecuts  placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I adhered to the backside of the scalloped rectangle diecut and then adhered to the tag.
I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the butterfly face image before placing above the stamped sentiment.
I finished by adhering lace to the bottom of tag and adding a button, sequin, gem at bottom corner of tag and tying a bow at the top of the tag. I hope you like this tag as much as I enjoyed creating it. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Stars on the 4th of July Card

Hi everyone! If you celebrated Independence Day like me and my family I hope you had a great time. Mine was spent lounging in the pool or on the lounge chair reading with a little eating on the side. 😎 I want to share a 4th of July card I created for Momenta.
I started by cutting and folding a piece of cardstock (retired Momenta 12″x12″ Basic Paper Pad Collection) 5 1/2″x4 1/4″ to create the base for the card. I selected a piece of blue cardstock from the Gemstones 8″x8″ Paper Pad and with the Star Confetti Metal Die Template I cut out one diecut. I adhered a piece of white cardstock to the back of the diecut before adding Foam Pop Dots and placing on the card base.

I used a 2″ Watercolor Doily but flipped it over on the back since it was white and adhered to the corner of the diecut. 
From the same blue cardstock I cut the number 4 with the Numbers Cut and Emboss Template and adhered to the doily. I cut the word July from red cardstock from the Metallic Paper Pad using the Months of the Year Cutting Template.

I finished the card by adding sequins, gems and a red twine bow to the card. Be sure to stop by Momenta’s website to see the latest projects! You can find their site HERE. As always if you have any questions about this card please let me know.

I would also like to submit this card for the following challenge:

Wonder Tag

Hi everyone! I am back with another project I created for ColorBox for their Creativation booth this past January. I know it took me forever to share these projects with everyone but I was trying to space my posts out so I didn’t overwhelm everyone with butterfly projects. 😬

For this project I placed a 3 1/4″x5 1/2″ white tag in the Open Book Embossing Folder, placed between two cutting plates, placed onto the platform and run though a Diecut MachineI inked an Art Dauber with Jade Premium Dye Ink and lightly rubbed over the embossed tag.

I placed a piece of White Cardstock on top of the Ornate Frame Diecut and placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I inked an art dauber with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink and lightly ink over the Ornate Frame Diecut. I added Gold Gems to the diecut and adhered the diecut to the center of tag.

Next I placed the outline of the butterfly stamp, from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock. I placed the “filled in” image of the Butterfly stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool (be sure to line up the stamp with the stamped butterfly cardstock image) and inked the stamp with Sandstone Premium Dye Ink and stamp on top of the stamped butterfly image.

I loaded three art daubers with the following Premium Dye Inks: Bahama Atmosphere and Dandelion. I inked the majority of the butterfly image with Atmosphere Premium Dye Ink. I inked over a small portion the wings, near the body, with Bahama Premium Dye Ink. Lastly I inked the inner and outer edges of the wings with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink. I fussy cut the butterfly image out with Scissors. I adhered a metal tab to the body of the butterfly and added a Pink Gem to the metal tab for the head. I also added two Pearl Pins and Foam Pop Dots to the back of the butterfly and placed in the center of the tag.

I placed the “For Small Wonders” stamp onto an the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of green cardstock . I cut out the “Wonder” sentiment with a Paper Cutter and cut another piece of yellow cardstock slightly larger than the sentiment and adhered both together. I added foam pop dots and placed sentiment under the butterfly.

I cut and adhered lace and Pom Pom trim to fit bottom of tag. I cut two 8″ pieces of lace and two gold Ric Rac and trim and strung through the top of tag, tied off with twine and adhered a button on top of twine. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Summer Floral Altered Jumbo Paperclip

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a project I created for Momenta! I created this easy bookmark with several bits and pieces I had leftover from my past Momenta projects.

I started by folding a 3 1/4″x8″ piece of lilac/purple and gold polka dot cardstock in half from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad and cutting a “v” in the end of both before sliding one end of the cardstock around a jumbo paperclip. I adhered both ends together  and added a doily from the 2″ Watercolor Doily Collection.

I had several floral scraps leftover from the Peony Paper Pad and part of a diecut leftover from the Floral Cutting Template Diecut. I fussy cut a flower and several leaves out from the leftover scraps. I shaped the leaves before adhering to the backside of the flower. Before adhering the diecut to what I had cut out I inked the leaves with green ink.

I added foam pop dots to the back of the floral mix and placed on the bookmark. I glued sequins and gems to the flowers and leaves and I placed green thread and pearl sprays to the corner. Also from the same leftover diecut I cut out the butterfly and added pink ink to the wings before adhering to the bookmark.
This project was under an hour to complete and would be perfect to give as an add-on gift with a good book. If you need more inspiration go to Momenta which you can find HERE. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Daydream Paper Clip

Hi everyone! I want to share another project, a paper clip I altered, that was shown in ClearSnap’s booth this past January at Creativation .

I placed the cloud stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto an Acrylic Block/Precision Press(retired) and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and I stamped randomly on one side of the folded piece of cardstock. I inked an Art Dauber with Bahama Premium Dye Ink and lightly ink edges of banner and the cloud images.


I cut the stamped clouds cardstock 8″x3 1/2″ and fold in half, 4″x3 1/2″. I cut a “v” in the end of cardstock to create a banner.

I placed the Daydream stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto an acrylic block/Precision Press(retired) and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of cardstock. Next I cut and folded, inked the edges with Sandstone Premium Dye Ink using an art dauber. I cut two smaller banners from patterned cardstock and slide all stamped and patterned cardstocks around the jumbo paper clip and adhered together.

I punched out a mini butterfly from cardstock and inked an art dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink and inked the mini butterfly, adhered to the “Daydream” banner and add a Black Gem to the body.

I placed the outline of the Butterfly stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto an Acrylic Block/Precision Press(retired) and inked the stamp with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of White CardstockNext I placed the “filled in” image of Butterfly stamp onto an acrylic block or Precision Press…be sure to line up the stamp with the stamped Butterfly cardstock image…ink the stamp with Sandstone Premium Dye Ink and stamp on top of the stamped butterfly image.

I inked three art daubers with the following Premium Dye Inks: RoseRaspberry and Dandelion and inked the majority of the wings with Rose Premium Dye Ink, ink a small portion of the wings, next to the brown, with Raspberry Premium Dye Ink and the inner and the outer portions of the wings with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink. I fussy cut the butterfly image out.

I adhered the butterfly to paper clip banner, added three Black Gems to the body and clear glitter glue to the dots on the butterfly. I looped several gold metallic and yellow threads and glue underneath the butterfly.

Butterfly House Gift Box

Hi everyone! I am back this week with a gift idea for Mother’s Day! I created this little gift box for ClearSnap to be shown in their booth at Creativation this past January and I am finally getting around to sharing this fun piece.
I started by placing the outline of the Butterfly stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto the Acrylic Block/Precision Press/MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock.

I placed the “filled in” image of the butterfly stamp onto the Acrylic Block/Precision Press…the precision press is no longer available but since creating this project I now own a MISTI Stamping Tool which I love. I made sure to line up the stamp with the stamped butterfly cardstock image after inking the stamp with Sandstone Premium Dye Ink and stamped on top of the stamped butterfly image.

I inked three Art Daubers with the following Premium Dye Inks: Coral, Dandelion and Black. I inked a majority of the butterfly image with Coral Premium Dye Ink and the inner and outer edges of the butterfly wings are inked with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink. The butterfly body  was inked with Black Premium Dye Ink. I fussy cut the butterfly image out.

I put a 2″x3″ box together. The second box I cut the lid/flap off and adhere the 3″x3″ piece to the smaller folded flap of box. 

Next I glued the other smaller folded flap to the inside of the box. 

The smaller flap I glued to the other side of the larger flap. 

This creates the roof for the butterfly house.

I cut four pieces of patterned cardstock 2″x3″ and inked an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink and inked all edges of cardstock before adhering to the base of the 2″x3″ box. I measured and mark in 1″ increments on both sides of the roof and cut four 1 1/2″x3″ and one 3″x3″ brown cardstock and ink an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink. 

I inked edges of all pieces of cardstocks. On the marked places on the roof, I started at the bottom of the roof and  work upwards by adding the 1 1/2″x3: pieces of cardstock. Before adding adhesive to the 3″x3″ piece of cardstock I folded in half to create a 1 1/2″x3″ roof peak. Then I adhered to the peak of the roof.

I inked and stamp the “Be Grateful” and “For Small Wonders” stamps from the Butterfly Clear Stamps with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of cardstock. I cut both to 1 1/2″x2 1/2″ plus one plain piece of cardstock the same size.

 I inked an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink and ink all edges of cardstock. I then adhered the sentiments to each side of the house. The plain cardstock I adhered to the backside of the house. I punched two mini butterflies from white cardstock and inked both butterflies with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink using an art dauber. I adhered mini butterflies to each side of the house and added Black Gems to the center of each butterfly.

Next I punched from white cardstock a decorative punch (any punch/diecut will work as a long as it fits the front of the base of the box) and inked an art dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink and ink the edges of the punch. I glued to the front of the base of the box and adhered the stamped butterfly to the center of the base of the box and add black gems to the body.

I placed a piece of white cardstock on top of the Flower Journaling Card Diecut and place both between two cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine.

I loaded an art dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink and inked flower diecuts, shaped and adhered flowers to each side of the roof. 

I added leaf sprigs, pearl sprays and twine/cording to flowers. 

I added a mix of gold gems and sequins to the center of each flower. Now all you have to do is add a small gift such as candy or jewelry inside and it is ready to give as a gift.
