Nested Friends Reminds Us Of Spring

Its almost that time of year... more sunshine, things coming back to life like tree buds and plants and wild life.  There is nothing like the sound of baby birds chirping in the springtime!  And this stamp bundle reminds me of just that.  

Here is a card that you can use for so many occasions made with the NESTED FRIENDS stamp and die bundle:

#nestedfriends #stampwithlisabrown #creativecardcloset

I combined Granny Apple Green and Tahitian Tide card stock for the base and mats.  The dies include these awesome little leaves that emboss too, giving amazing detail.  I wanted those a little darker so I cut from Old Olive card stock. 

My bird is resting in her nest!  I used my Paper Snips and Foam Mat to cut a slit into the nest and inserted her tail feathers through the slit.

Here's a close up to see her sitting in her nest, but also take a look at the background.  There is a speckled stamp in which I stamped the whole white background with before embossing with the HIVE 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER (which you can earn for FREE when you order the Nested Friends bundle or any $50 product purchase until Feb. 28, 2023).  Note:  The Sale-a-Bration Hive folder item # 164424

Fun Sale-a-Bration Project Cards

As we head into the last one and a half weeks of Sale-a-Bration, I wanted to share are some additional cards of inspiration that I have not posted yet.   Don't forget, Sale-a-Bration ends on February 28, 2023.  

#Freesia Adorable Owls #stampwithlisabrown

A quick and easy card featuring the SAB set Adorable Owls that you can earn for free.  And my favorite In-Color, Fresh Freesia, card stock and ribbon.  I used Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie Blends to color the owl. 

#beautifully happy #stampwithlisabrown

Starry Sky card stock, ink and ribbon is the In-Color star here.  Along with the free SAB stamp set Beautifully Happy and new letter dies called Alphabet A La Mode

For my last inspiration, it uses 2 Sale-a-Bration items; Adorable Owls stamp set and Dandy Designs DSP paper.

This one was designed by Linda Bauwin and I love how she used the Basic Borders Die for the angle cut. Fun, bright and different!

Lots of Shimmer and Shine


We are several weeks into the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog and I have to say, it has some pretty fabulous papers!  So I am showing two of my MUST haves from the catalog.  They are DRY BRUSHED METALLIC 12 x 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper and the FINE SHIMMER 12 x 12" Paper Pack. 

When I say the catalog does not do the Fine Shimmer paper any justice, I mean it.  Just take a look below especially the second picture. If you look at the picture in the catalog or in my Online Shop, you can not even tell it has shimmer and shine to it.

The Artistically Ink Bundle is still a favorite from the Annual catalog, and the simplicity of the die cut flower over top of the two shiny papers just makes a quick, easy and beautiful card.  

My card base and flower die are Basic Black CS.  There is a layer of Soft Sea Foam CS that is 4-1/8 x 5-3/8.  

Each strip of the Dry Brushed Metallic and Fine Shimmer papers are 1-3/4 x 4"

OH!!!  Wondering what that ribbon is?  Well, I used the Balmy Blue Ribbon and colored it with Soft Succulent Ink.  I added the ink to the ribbon with a Blending Brush. 

I hope you liked this project.

Sale-A-Bration Dandy Designs Paper


Sale-a-Bration is such a great time to earn something for free and the Dandy Designs 12x12 Designer Series Series paper is one of my favorites this time around!

Below is a sample made by my fellow Demonstrator, Leigh Amburgey.  We participated in a small shoe box swap and this was Leigh's design.  

#creativecardcloset #SAB2023 #LisaBrown

The Dandy Designs paper has great colors!  Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Petal Pink, Pale Papaya, and Soft Succulent.  That's a lot of coordinating colors, isn't it. 

She used Thick Basic White for a card base, then a layer of Soft Succulent measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8

The 3 (three) pieces of Dandy Designs DSP are:  1-1/4 x 5-1/8... 2-1/2 x 1-3/4... and 2-1/2 x 3-1/4

The flower and stem is from the Two-Tone Flora Bundle from the Jan-April Mini Catalog.   Along with the Something Fancy Bundle for words.  Actually, these two stamp sets are available in a collection called Fancy Flora Suite Collection.  Both stamp sets have coordinating dies, ribbon, gems and some fabulous glimmer paper!

Non-Christmas Card Using Christmas Barn Bundle

Don't you like when a stamp set gives extra life?  Meaning, you can use for other occasions other than what they are meant for.  So even though my project features a New Bundle Called - Christmas Barn, I made an all occasion card.  

#Christmasbarn #lisabrown

You can see the full bundle below (stamps & dies) but here are the Barn Dies... you get lots of great choices.

Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

Hi there...  Are you looking forward to spring just as much as I am?  We have had some glimpses recently and some potential warm weather in the next few days.  Can't wait!  These projects will hopefully help you feel the spring bug. 

I have 3 card projects for you that are super easy and feature the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks.  You can see my first posting using this mask HERE.  Be sure to check it out. 

1.)  Layered Butterfly with decorative corners.  The bottom of the butterfly is a light layer of Bermuda Bay and the butterfly detail is heavy, multiple layers of Bermuda Bay.  I applied my ink using Blending Brushes.  


2.)  Roses and vines are Melon Mambo and Old Olive inks, again,  applied with Blending Brushes.  Basic White card stock cut 2-1/2 x 4 each.  


3.)  This butterfly truly shows off why these masks have the word "Layering" in their name.  You can layer the patterns to get different affects.  Gorgeous Grape ink applied with Blending Brushes with a light base coat and multiple layers for the dark detail. 


Just a Reminder:  You have until April 30, 2020 for Last Chance Products!   Items retiring from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog with some being discounted.
