Gimme Some Sugar - Baking with Mom layout

Hello!   I have another layout I made using Gimme Some Sugar papers.  This layout is based on the Make It From Your Heart Vol 3, Pattern 3 sketch.  The same layout sketch I used on yesterday's post.  I did change up one of the strips of patterned paper for this layout and I used the Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts set for this "Baking with Mom" themed layout.

Gimme Some Sugar - Easter Layout

Hello!  I have an Easter layout to share with you today.  I created this layout using Gimme Some Sugar papers along with the Rain or Shine and the Christmas Paper Doll Stamp & Thin Cuts sets.  I have longer hair so I used the Christmas Paper Doll set to cut the girl, then I used the clothing and basket from the Rain or Shine Doll set.  This layout is based on the Make It From Your Heart Vol 3, Pattern 3 sketch.  I did also stamp with a Splash of Color stamp using Bashful Ink behind the "Easter" title before I popped the shadowed letters up with 3-D Foam Tape.

Gimme Some Sugar - Apron card

Good morning!  

I have a fun card to share with you using the Gimme Some Sugar paper suite, an apron card!  I initially saw this card posted by fellow consultant Suzette Conrad and just knew I had to create one.  I started with a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base, added the Juniper dotted B&T paper to the top, the baking themed B&T paper to the bottom and then I used the largest Oval Thin Cut to cut the top corners off of the card.  I then added the strip of  Bashful Glitter Paper, pocket with the Gimme Some Sugar Cardmaking Thin Cuts (mit, grater & rolling pin) into the pocket and finally cut holes at the top using a hole punch and added the Peacock-Stitched Ribbon.

Gimme Some Sugar card

Happy weekend!  I have a fun card to share with you today.  My friend, upline and fellow consultant Dana shared this card with us on our team page and I just Loved it and knew I had to make one.  She called it a Dutch Door card, but I think it can also be called a Barn Door card.  For this card I started with a piece of Heather cardstock, cut it to a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base size.  Then put the card base open into my paper trimmer and cut down 2 1/2" and trim that piece off to make the barn door.  You can see a better visual in the 2nd picture.  I used the Mother's Garden Stamp Set & Thin Cuts on this card.  Aren't those rain boots just too stinkin' cute?!!  For those I cut out the boots Thin Cut using White cardstock as well as the Juniper dot patterned paper then stamped them both with the boot stamp set.  I then trimmed the outer edge off of the patterned paper image and laid it on top of the white cardstock stamped boot piece so it appears to be polka dot printed boots.  The "I Appreciate You!" sentiment comes from the Mother's Garden stamp set as well.  I then hand drew the faux stitched design onto the cardstock.  Don't judge, my faux stitching is not that great!  Will have to practice on that some more!



This is the better visual I mentioned above, showing the card open.
