Cock-a-doodle-do! Rise and shine, the rooster is saying good morning!

I love the sound of the rooster (on my cell phone) waking me up in the mornings. 
I live in a small town but love the country life so the rooster on my phone will have to do.
I was looking around for ideas on how to create my card with the rooster from the new 
Sale-A-Bration set Home to Roost. 
I came across Inspire.Create.Challenges from another blogger who had posted a card she created (Stamps-N-Lingers.)
As soon as I saw the sketch layout I knew what I wanted to create. I think it turned out quite well. 
This is my entry for the sketch challenge at Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges

I used the Wood Textures dsp 4 x 5 1/4 and adhered it to the Cajun Craze cardstock. I then added a piece of Striped Burlap Ribbon (retired) and Braided Linen Trim across the bottom of the card. I trimmed the edges of the burlap on each end at different angles. I then added a piece of the chicken wire element.

For the rooster I stamped him in Memento black ink on Whisper White and colored him in with the blends. I used Dark and Light Old Olive for his tail, Dark and Light Bermuda bay for his chest, Dark Pumpkin Pie for the neck, Dark Cajun Craze for his comb (on top of his head) and wattle (the thing hanging from his neck) and Light Cajun Craze for his eye area on the head. I cut out a piece of the new Sale-A-Bration Grapefruit Grove foil sheet with the star punch from the annual catalog. I did the same for the rooster. I then added dimensionals to the back and added it to the right hand side of the card and did the same to the rooster leaving some of the foil to shine above it like the sun is rising.
I finished off the card with a sentiment in the top left corner from the Home to Roost "Enjoy the simple moments."


I enjoyed making this card and come back another day for more inspirations!

Have you heard?

ORGANDY RIBBON COMBO PACK SOLD OUT

The Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (item 149623) may be one of our most popular Sale-A-Bration items ever. It’s been so popular, in fact, that it has exceeded our product forecast and sold out in our North American markets. We have a shipment coming in to fulfill back-orders, but because this item has been in such high demand, we have been forced to turn off the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack. Unfortunately, this initial shipment will help us fulfill only orders that have already been placed. Once back-orders have been fulfilled, a second shipment will arrive at the beginning of March, which will allow us to turn on this item again; it will be available while supplies last only.
We’re so sorry for the inconvenience.

ITEMS APPROACHING NON-ORDER-ABLE STATUS

Sales for the following product have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of back-orders. Due to Chinese New Year and port congestion delays, estimated arrival is mid-March.
Butterfly Duet Punch (item 148523) Product List
In order to give you customers time to close any affected orders, this product will remain available until Friday, January 25 at 10:00 AM (MT); it will then be placed in non order able status. 
Sales for the following item have exceeded our forecast. Although not currently on back=order, we expect to deplete our inventory of this product within the next two weeks; it will no longer be order able as soon as inventory is depleted.

Cake Builder Punch (item 148525) Product List
Due to Chinese New Year and port congestion delays, estimated arrival is mid-March.
When you enter item numbers for either of these products on a customer, workshop, or demonstrator order, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when they are back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for these items and they are again available for purchase.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Is Spring here yet?

Now that winter has finally arrived in Ohio, we are patiently waiting for spring. 
Here is a cute card to get you into a Springy mood. 
First we start off with this adorable, handsome rabbit from the Fable Friends stamp set. 
I matted the card base with soft sea foam and gave the edges a worn look. Then I added a piece of the Lovely Lipstick foil to the side and then added the dsp.
I colored the rabbit's shirt with the New Balmy Blue blends and the grass at his feet with the New Mossy Meadow blends and his ears needed some color to so I colored them in with Petal Pink.
I then used the edge of the Modern Label punch to give the ends a decorative edge. To finish the look I added a piece of the 1/8 inch Flirty Flamingo from the All My Love Ribbon Combo pack.
Finally I took the oval punch and punched out the sentiment. I then took an 1/8 hole punch and punched holes at each end and thread more of the ribbon through it and knotted them.

You Make Me Happy Card from the Meant to Be bundle

A new year has started and the Holiday hoopla is over, for now. The next holiday coming up is all about Love! February can be magical. Some people will get engaged, couples take a date night and show their love in many ways from flowers to candy, but most importantly with a card. Instead of buying a Hallmark card nothing seems to have more meaning than a handmade card. It shows the person took the time to think about what they want to say to the ones they love.

This card is made for a person who makes another person happy. It does not have to mean love. It could be for a friend on Valentines day to just show them how much they mean to you,  how much you appreciate what they did or have done for you. Just another nice way to say Thank You on a very special day!

This card technique is the Double Curtain Fold


Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Merry Merlot base: 4 x 5 1/2
DSP cut to: 1 1/2 x 4 top of card
and for the curtain one piece of Designer Series Paper - 8" x 3"
Score on one side at 1/2", 3/4", 1-1/2", 1-3/4", 2-1/2", 2-3/4", 3 1/2" and at 3-3/4."
Turn and score the other end.
Then make a mark at the short side at 1 1/2" on each end and on the long side at the bottom at 3 1/2" on each side, align these two marks in your cutting track and cut (see photo.)

Now begin folding. It will be mountain, valley and so forth and then do the same to the other side. 
Now adhere the curtain to Merry Merlot card front as shown. Take the other dsp and add it to the top. I then added the Lovely Lipstick ribbon around the top of the curtain and bottom of other dsp and then did the same with the Flirty Flamingo Ribbon to make it look like duel ribbon. I then punched out the label in Whisper White, Merry Merlot and the Merry Merlot glimmer paper. I cut the Merry Merlot glimmer paper in half and adhered it to the top and bottom. For the Whisper White piece I cut of the top and bottom leaving just the center piece. I then stamped the "you make me happy" in Lovely Lipstick and attached it with dimensionals and I then attached the whole label to the center with dimensionals. Finally I attached it to the card base.

Here is the link to the video of how I created this card
