WWYS Week #18 Be The Star

Hey Everyone!! 

Thanks for joining us for another week at WWYS #18. I have been super busy with life but managed to put a card together for this week! I am going to keep this short and sweet because I seriously am so short on any me time lately! I need a vacation just to craft! 

Ok on with the card. We are using the Be the Star stamp set this week. I love stars so this set was awesome to use. It's definitely going to be a fave in my collection. 

I kept my card simple since I was short on time this week. I used Mint Macaroon from the new In-Colors. I stamped out the three different sizes of stars I wanted and then used the stars framelits to cut them out on my bigshot. I used the little star cluster stamp in the set to stamp the background. I inked once and stamped twice to make the background, Afterwards I just layered the stars on top and glued some sequins around for some sparkle.

I stamped the Rock Star sentiment for my card and then used the mini staple gun to stick it to the card. Sticking with once color and one stamp set really helped save time on this card. 

I really do hope you enjoyed my card this week. Come back next week to see what I have in store for you for the next project! It will be a delight!. I hope you guys play along this week and happy crafting as always!

What Will You Stamp Week #15 B.Y.O.P.

Hey Everyone!!
Welcome to another week at What Will You Stamp? Challenge Blog! This week we are featuring the B.Y.O.P. stamp set. I knew as soon as I saw this stamp set I wanted to use the BYOP sentiment. It is so bold and sassy. I really love how this stamp set is in pairs also. You can have a sentiment in the front of your card and have a sentiment that coordinates stamped in the inside. With my card I used the coordinating sentiment on the front and I think it flows nicely.

Ok so who is ready for my card details?! I used the new 2015 - 2017 In Color Watermelon Wonder for the base of the card. Whisper White is matting the other layer of Watermelon Wonder. I wanted to use DSP somehow so I thought how fun would it be to have it poking through some kind of design? So I grabbed the chevron punch and went to town. I only used a small strip of DSP also since only so much is actually showing through.

After layering the card I felt it needed something more so I ended up embossing the piece of Watermelon Wonder with the stars emboss folder. I love how it looks with the chevron punched. After that I used Bermuda Bay to mat my sentiment. I really wanted to tie all the colors together and bring the blue and orange out in the DSP paper.

I used a heart from sweet dreams designer buttons and Bermuda bay bakers twine for a simple detail. I have a really hard time making "simple clean" cards. I also feel the need to keep adding and adding stuff to my cards. I envy those who can stamp a single image and the card looks so classic! In the meanwhile I will be making cards layering like crazy. I think this is one of my favorite cards though that I have done in awhile
Well I really hope you enjoyed my post today and my card brings you a little inspiration. Please check out the other ladies on What Will You Stamp? Challenge Blog today and don't forget to subscribe to my blog!

What Will You Stamp Week #14 Another Thank You

Welcome to another week to What Will You Stamp? Today we have featured is Another Thank You. Very fitting I think since I am always thankful you come back every week to check out my blog. I am very excited for today's post because I know tomorrow Stampin' Up's new catalog goes live!! Super excited about that now. Ok well enough of me rambling on. Let's get to my card!


I was very excited because I found my Deco Labels Framelits this week just in time for this card. Those framelits have been "misplaced" for two weeks and it was driving me crazy! But I found them and immediately knew I wanted to use them for this card.

So everyone knows I love to layer. I have some layering going on like usual but nothing to crazy. I placed a tea lace doily behind the matted sentiment because I felt it needed a softer girly feel. I know I can't get away from those doily's just yet!! I really absolutely love this card.

I had some ribbon that I had not used yet so I decided to try it out. I love the way it compliments the melon mambo cardstock. The card is very simple to put together which is great news for me since I have several more to make for my daughter to give to everyone who ordered from her fundraiser. I figured it would be nice to give them a handmade card with something she wrote in it for them when she gives them their products.
Well once again that you for stopping by my blog and check it out. Don't forget our new catalog goes live and you can order products 24/7 from my online store! I appreciate everyone who keeps coming back and following us on What Will You Stamp! Challenge Blog
