Facebook Friday- Nine Lives

Hello everybody!  It's time for another Facebook Friday! This week, I am focusing on the fun Nine Lives stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. I'm not necessarily a cat person, but I do love this set! There are lots of options for creating cute projects for different occasions. 



 In case you've never joined me for facebook Live, I go live every week, typically on Friday at 2:00 CST on my Pink Buckaroo Stampers Group page with three projects. Everyone is welcome to join! I also go live on Tuesdays at 2:00 CST on my Pink Buckaroo Designs Page

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards.



First we're making a card based on a another card sketch. As I mentioned during the last Facebook Friday, I am often asked, "How do you come up with your ideas?" One of my favorite forms of inspiration are card sketches! 

 For this card, I used the sketch below as a blueprint, or a map, of where I should put my products. I used the Post Script Background stamp as well as the Itty Bitty Greetings for the sentiment. 


Here is the sketch. It's just a suggestion for how you should layout your pieces. I'd love to see what card you make using the sketch! 
Please share it on Facebook! 

Clean Recording of this project can be found here 




Next up, we're creating a black cat! I'll emboss him with Black Embossing Powder and use the White Chalk Marker on his eyes! 


And last, I'm going to show you how to make a flat 3D box! It looks like it's sticking out, but it's flat! Of course a cat would find a box to get in! I had to come up with something for this cute kitty to get into!  


And, in case you missed it, I created this Box Card on Wednesday.   


They have all the products I used and measurements for each project. 

***Remember, if you put in an order ($30 minimum) by

Foxy Friends and Painted Seasons (March Stamp Club To Go Scrapbook Page)

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to share this month's Stamp Club To Go scrapbook page and alternate card! I wanted to use the adorable mushroom print DSP from the Limited Edition Painted Seasons DSP. I looked at my stamps and thought the Fox from Foxy Friends was the perfect stamp to use!  

In case you aren't familiar with my Stamp Club To Go program, each month, in exchange for their monthly order, I send my members three projects. a card, a 3D item and a scrapbook page, or alternate card for those who don't scrapbook. 


For the card, I stamped the background with the pine cone in Soft Suede. I also used the Part of My Story (Sale A Bration) stamp set as the sentiment. I added a metal Leaves Trinket and a bow using the Nature's Twine. Oh, and I added a skinny drip of Wood Textures DSP. Don't they all go together so well? 


The scrapbook page used all of the same things. I added a small tag cluster at the bottom. 



You can see the two projects together here. I always try to keep them very similar in design so that no matter which project you choose, you are still getting a sampling of the same products.  


As I mentioned, these projects were for my Stamp Club To Go program. It's a 6 month program where I send you three complete projects each month (like the one above) and in turn you place an order each month.
 One month, you receive Stamping' Rewards! 

I am starting a new group in April!

Sweet Stampede Blog Hop- Easter Basket

 


Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by today for our Sweet Stampede blog hop! The Sweet Stampede is my team, or my downline. I am blessed with a fantastic and talented group of stampers! I love to hop through their blogs to see what they've created. Today, our theme is Spring/Easter! 


I made these adorable little Easter baskets for my Stamp Club To Go members this month. I am not the original designer of this basket, that would be my friend Ronda Wade. You can find a tutorial on her Creating Success Facebook Page. I will probably do one too as we get closer to Easter. They each feature the little bunny from Fable Friends as well as one of the Gingham Gala DSP patterns. 

This basket has Calypso Coral Satin Ribbon. 

And this basket has Mini Striped Ribbon. 

As I mentioned, this is the blog hop my team does every month. You can find all the benefits of being a Sweet Stampeder here. If you have questions, please let me know! 

I hope you will hop along and give my sweet downline some love!
Thanks for stopping by!

Facebook Friday- Happiness Blooms

Hello everybody!  It's time for another Facebook Friday! This week, I am focusing on the beautiful Happiness Blooms DSP. It's perfect for spring! 


 In case you've never joined me for facebook Live, I go live every week, typically on Friday at 2:00 CST on my Pink Buckaroo Stampers Group page with three projects. Everyone is welcome to join! I also go live on Tuesdays at 2:00 CST on my Pink Buckaroo Designs Page

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards.





First we're making a card based on a sketch. I am often asked, "How do you come up with your ideas?" Well, one of the ways is to use Card Sketches! Here, I used the sketch as a blueprint, or a map of where I should put my products. I used the Floral Frames stamp set along with the Foliage Frame Framelits. 



Here is the sketch. See how it's very basic? Just use it as a suggestion, and make a card! I'd love to see what yo come up with!


And here are three more cards I created with the same stamps but different patterns from the Happiness Blooms DSP. 
Clean Recording of this project can be found here


Next up, we're using half a sheet of DSP to create a gift bag. I used the Dear Doily Bundle to create the tag. 


And last, we're making a fancy fold using the beautiful Home to Roost stamp set (free Sale A Bration set.)  



And, in case you missed it, I created this fun St. Patrick's Day treat on Tuesday.   


They have all the products I used and measurements for each project.
