Stampin’ Up! Cake Soiree Celebrate Card

I am having so much fun playing with all the new Occasions Catalog goodies.

The bundle used today, the Cake Soiree Bundle, was one I received for free from my upline.  We really do have the best team.  Everyone’s so supportive and encouraging and along the way we get some prize patrol.  Talk to me, we’d love to have you join and now’s the best time!!

My card today starts off with Marina Mist cardstock.  I then matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on some Powder Pink cardstock.

I then cut out three squares using the Layering Squares Framelits, one in Silver Foil and two in Powder Pink.  Before adhering down the bigger silver square, I tucked behind it some Whisper White Organza Ribbon…and let me tell you – this ribbon is gorgeous!

I then used the Cake Soiree Bundle (stamp set and coordinating framelits) to stamp and cut out a cake (Powder Pink ink) and various flowers and leaves (Rich Razzleberry, Berry Burst, Marina Mist, Old Olive inks).

I stamped the sentiment from the Cake Soiree Stamp Set in Versamark ink on the cake, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, and heat embossed it using the heat tool.  You’ll notice I’m missing the little line that comes down from the sentiment.  I covered it with some Washi Tape so it wouldn’t get inked up.  I added a few Silver Enamel dots in the corner to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was (loosely) inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows Card

I don’t know about where you are, but it is bitter cold here in Upstate New York, so I’ll do just about anything to get some sunshine and warmth.

My card today did just that for me using the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set.

I start out with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  Next I matted a piece of Soft Sky cardstock on Whisper White cardstock.

I created my clouds and rainbow using the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle and Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the rainbow and Whisper White and vellum cardstock for the clouds.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Epoxy Circles over the clouds.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! 2018 Calendar

Today and tomorrow are busy days for me.

Tonight at 7:30 pm EST I’ll be giving a Facebook Live Tutorial on a Valentine’s Day treat box using the Lots to Love Box Framelits.  Afterwards I’ll pick a name out of everyone who watched live and left a comment to gift the treat box to.

Also, today and tomorrow I’m having Make & Take Stamp Parties.

These particular parties I host once a month and we have a lot of fun.  If you’re in the Upstate New York area, please check out my events and see if you can make any.  I’d love to have you join me!

At my parties I always try to have a little something to my attendees.  It varies from month to month, but being that it’s January I thought a little calendar would be cute.

A co-line of mine, Jari, made these and I hopped over to Splitcoaststampers to get all the measurements.

I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I cut a panel of Soft Sky cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  Next I cut out leaves/flowers using the Petals & More Thinlits and Pear Pizzazz and Powder Pink cardstock and adhered them down using Tombow liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I adhered this using Fast Fuse adhesive.  I added a few pearls to finish it off.

Enjoy!

DOUBLE REWARDS!!

Now through January 11th, I’m giving Double Star Rewards!  Instead of earning one star for every increment of $25 ordered, you receive TWO stars.  Once you receive 12, you earn a free $30 order from me.

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Lavender

Are you keeping warm today?

Here in Upstate New York we’re having a high of -1 … you read that right, as in, minus one!
So to my craft room I must go to stay warm 🙂

Today’s card was featured in my Facebook Live Tutorial Wednesday night.  Every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm EST I go live giving a tutorial.  This is a great time to check out new product, new techniques, and to ask questions.  It’s a lot of fun!

Don’t forget Sale-a-bration is in full swing and to celebrate now through January 11th I’m offering DOUBLE Star Rewards!  It gets you that much closer to that free $30 order AND earns you free Sale-a-bration items along the way!

My card today starts off with Soft Sky cardstock.  I then took a panel of Emerald Envy cardstock and matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next I used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut out the largest scalloped square from Whisper White cardstock and a slightly smaller square from Berry Burst cardstock.  I embossed the Berry Burst square using the Petal Burst embossing folder.  Next I cut a small strip of Soft Sky cardstock, cut the ends in a banner using the Triple Banner Punch, and adhered it over the card front.

I cut out a Berry Burst scalloped Square and White Shimmery cardstock square using the Layering Squares Framelits.  I stamped the flowers in Versamark in each corner of the White Shimmery cardstock, sprinkled them with white embossing powder, and heat set them with the heat tool.  I then took an Aqua Painter and Emerald Envy and Berry Burst ink pads to color over them.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set separately on another piece of white Shimmery cardstock and adhered it over the square.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by challenges this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and Stamp, Ink, Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Labels to Love Valentine’s Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop challenge is a sketch challenge.

My card starts off with Melon Mambo cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Labels to Love stamp set to stamp the “Love” all across it.  I stamped the first one in Flirty Flamingo ink where I knew the center of the heart would be and then in Melon Mambo ink in lines around it.  I matted the Whisper White cardstock on Gold Foil cardstock.

I took a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and cut a heart out of it using the Lots to Love Box Framelits.  I adhered this over the Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals and wrapped a bow around all of it using Flirty Flamingo Baker’s Twine.

I finished off the card by cutting out two hearts using the Lots to Love Box Framelits from Melon Mambo cardstock and Gold Foil cardstock to adhere to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette

In my Facebook Live tutorial Wednesday night, I shared a thank you card using the NEW Petal Palette Bundle.

If this set isn’t on your wish list for the Occasions Catalog – it needs to be!  It’s a great mixture of beautiful images and sweet sentiments!

For a more inside look at how I made this card and some cute pictures of my (soon to be) 8-year-old copying me check out my Instagram page.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock on which I stamped the rose image from the Petal Palette stamp set multiple times in Memento Black. ink

I took the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a circle from the rose stamped paper.  I matted the cardstock with the hole in it on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then used Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Markers to color the circle in and matted it on a Basic Black scalloped circle.  I cut out a piece of Burlap Ribbon and piece of Mini Gold Sequin to tuck behind the scalloped circle.  I adhered all this down over the hole using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on a thin panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I stamped the chickadee image on Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink.  I colored it in using the Bronze and Ivory Stampin Blend Markers and cut it out using the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits.  I adhered him down using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Painted With Love Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

For today’s card I thought I’d pull out new product from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  I’m really enjoying all the bright colors and new designs!

There’s nothing like new product!

My card today starts off with Melon Mambo cardstock.  I then took a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card front.

Next I took a pattern from the NEW Painted with Love  Specialty DSP.  What makes this paper special is all the gold accents.  They add such a nice sparkle to the paper and I love the gold paired with these colors!  I matted this DSP on a panel of Gold Foil Sheet.

I cut out a label using the Everyday Label Punch and the Gold Foil Sheet.  I cut it in half and adhered each part opposite each other behind the DSP.

I stamped the heart in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White cardstock from the NEW Sure Do Love You Stamp Set (isn’t that a great name!).  I stamped the sentiment banner in Rich Razzleberry Ink on Whisper White cardstock. I cut them both out with the coordinating NEW Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (buy the bundle and save 10%).

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Sympathy

No one ever wants to have to send a sympathy card, but when you do, it might as well be made with love.

Unfortunately I have had to make a sympathy, but my hope is that it brings some comfort to the recipient.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Petal Palette stamp set to stamp a leaf background on it.  I used Pool Party ink, stamping off first for a lighter shade.

I cut out a Pool Party circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered it with a Vellum leaf cut out from the Petals & More Thinlits.

I cut out a Night of Navy lattice from the Petals & More Thinlits and then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Night of Navy and cut it out using one of the framelits from the Petals & More Thinlits.  I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the same leaf as the card front (stamping off first) in Pool Party ink and then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink over it.

Enjoy!

My card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! NEW We Must Celebrate Card

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

You might look at today’s card and wonder whether it’s really me here…
I assure you that it’s still me.

You see I normally do very little coloring/shading in.  And this is my third card in one week that has coloring!  I’m having so much fun.

I couldn’t help myself and had to get this new We Must Celebrate Stamp SetThese little creatures are so adorable and can be used together, as well as stamped separately.  Today I decided to use the watercolor pencils to color them in, but I can’t wait to try the new Stampin’ Blends!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and adhered it to the card front.   I adhered a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock to the top of the card front.  I then stamped the little creatures from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Archival Black ink on a piece of Watercolor Paper.

I used the Watercolor Pencils to color the creatures in.  I also used the Old Olive pencil to add some shading underneath the animals and very light Bermuda Bay above them for a sky.  I then used an Aqua Painter to evenly distribute the color.  I matted this on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
