Beautifully Vintage Beautiful Bunches Birthday Card

JenniferCards0 Comments

I’ve been sharing this card in my card classes this month and it just makes me so happy to see and everyone has loved it!  So I had to make sure to get it posted so you could enjoy it too… especially before many of the items used in the card retire (or sell out) by the end of the month!  It is a fun vintage card that was inspired by a card I received as a swap at a recent event.  But of course, I had to change up the stamps and accessories to give it my own personal … Read More

JenniferCards, My Paper Pumpkin0 Comments

I’ve been subscribed to My Paper Pumpkin since it started and so each month, I tend to get excited about the newest projects and stamps that come in the mail each month, and I sometimes forget about the past stamps.  But with the August promotion where you can get your first 2 months for only $10 a month (including shipping!), I have had some new friends join Paper Pumpkin this month and get the welcome kit.  So, I wanted to send a little note saying hello and thank you and decided to pull out those stamps that come with the … Read More

Stamping with an Embossing Folder for a Scrapbook Sketch

JenniferScrapbooking2 Comments

Happy Monday!  Today over at the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration blog, we are sharing a fun scrapbook sketch idea.  I didn’t create the sketch, but let me tell you how much I LOVE designing off of sketches.  It makes the scrapbooking process so much easier for me because I don’t have to think too hard about the set-up of the page (or card!) and instead can focus on things like which color do I want to use and what should I write in my journaling.   Oh, and did I mention that my layouts are typically like my cards…. I start … Read More

How to Make Your Own Flocking & Add Fuzz to Your Projects

JenniferCards, Techniques, Video Tutorials1 Comment

When I was playing with the Swallowtail stamp, I realized that it was a big stamp… seriously, like background sized big stamp.  And I was trying to figure out how I wanted to use it.  So, I cut and I played, but I really wanted to keep the full butterfly image for my card.  So I let go of my 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” boundaries and let my butterfly fly! But then as I was working on the rest of my card, I decided that the Honeycomb embossing folder looked a bit too tall… too sharp for my card.  … Read More

Smashed Bottle Cap/Soda Pop Top Spring Card

JenniferCards, Techniques0 Comments

Ever since I went to Leadership in January, I have been dying to try out the technique of smashing the soda pop tops with your Big Shot to create these super cute embellishments.  For some reason I thought it was going to be super hard or complicated… or something that made me a little bit intimidated to give it a try.  But then one day I decided to just go for it and I was shocked at how easy it was! So, I just had to put together a card to share with my group at my monthly team conference … Read More

JenniferBirthday, Cards8 Comments

Alright, this is my second month with the crew of talented stampers and this month we are sharing project ideas using items from the new Spring catalog and Sale-a-Bration items.  Because who doesn’t like fun ideas with new stuff? Well, I have a couple quick projects for you and I hope they inspire some new ideas for you.  First up is a little card… I call it a calling card because it is actually significantly smaller than a standard card front.  I made these to send with some spring catalogs and SAB catalogs I was mailing out.  Something quick, cute, … Read More
