Magnet Boards

Today I have a 3 D project I just love and I hope you will like it enough to make one yourself. These magnet boards are so cute and functional as well.

Sweet Sorbet Magnet Board

The designer series paper I used, Sweet Sorbet, is from the Sale-A-Brations Catalog. It's my favorite this year. The colors and the flowers are so pretty together. The Stamp set is called Just Sayin' from the Occasions Catalog. I purchased the stamp set and the Framelits as a bundle and it makes using the set so much faster than cutting all the shapes out by hand.

Kaleidoscope Magnet Board
Isn't this paper cute. I love it. I used the Peachy Keen stamp set for three of the magnets. Made a rose using the new Spiral Flower die and the Big Shot. The fifth stamp image is from the stamp set Perfect Pennants, all from the Occasions Catalog.

Both boards are made the same. I used a now retired magnetic sheet from Stampin' Up! and adhered it to a piece of 6" x 8" chipboard. After cutting the designer series paper I adhered the paper to both sides using Sticky Strip. I chose our Ruffled Stretch Ribbon to use as a hanger. I use a Crop-a-dial to punch the holes at the top so the ribbon can be attached.

If you want to use flashing, go to a store that sells roof flashing. I checked at Lowe's and all they had were 5" x 7" pieces which would work as well. Caution: When working with flashing the corners are very sharp and you can cut yourself. I recommend using a tool called "Chompers" that will cut through metal and round the corners. I used the 3/4" round magnets for the back of the images. I attached them using Stampin' Dimensionals. I think all of the craft carry magnets.
These boards are handy for posting notes and photos to enhance your working space or other places in your home.

Happy Watercolor Meets Coastal Cabana

Good Morning from a very snowy Kalamazoo, Michigan. We measured another 6 inches of snow overnight and it is still coming down. Schools are closed due to the slippery roads. Man..Where is Spring?

Well, we can have some Spring with the cards I made using the Happy Watercolor stamp set and the beautiful color Coastal Cabana. I saw some cards using this color in our Stampin' Success Magazine and I had to give it a try. On Monday I featured the Happy Watercolor set with Lovely Lilac which is retired now. I have fallen in love with the Happy Watercolor stamp set and Coastal Cabana card stock. See what you think about these cards....

I chose a Tea Lace Paper Doily and covered it in Gold Embossing Ink and then Gold Embossing Powder and heated the doily with my heat gun. I really like how it turned out.
The Coastal Cabana and gold go perfect together.

To enhance the card I used Coastal Cabana Ruffled Ribbon and Gold Baker's Twine.

On this card I added some of Stampin' Up!  1 1/4"Burlap Ribbon just below the Coastal Cabana Ruffled Ribbon.

It's so much fun to see how different the same stamp set looks when using different colors of ink, card stock and ribbon.

Now available: Sweet Pie Stamps!

Spiral Flower Card

Another purple card for Percilla but this time I used the Spiral Flower Die with the Silver Foil Sheet and a Tea Lace Paper Doily.

 Lovely Lilac is retired now but I've saved some to make my friend, Percilla, some cards from her favorite color.

This is a 5" x 5" card. I cut a piece of our Silver Foil Sheet and ran it through the Big Shot using a new embossing folder from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog called Decorative Dots. I went on to use Stampin' Up! sanding block over the silver foil. Placing Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the doily and then on the sentiment ties the silver in the card together. I used the Large Oval punch for the leaves using Garden Green card stock. I cut the ovals to look more like leaves and added veins using the bone folder.

Sale-A-Bration will run to March 31st. Don't let these free products pass you by. For each $50 you purchase in regular products you can choose one of the 13 Sale-A-Brations products.

Purple for Percilla

Over the week end I found some retired Lovely Lilac card stock. My high school friend, Percilla loves purple so I try to make her cards with purple every chance I get. I used the idea for the layout for the cards from Stampin' Success Magazine. I changed the colors and embellishments. I used the Happy Water Color stamp set on page 22 of the Occasions Catalog.

I really like the way the three cards turned out. I think Percilla will enjoy them too. 

Until next time...
