Stampin’ Up! Floral Frames – Best Wishes

Happy Friday everyone!

Any fun plans this weekend?!

I’m in Orlando right now for Stampin’ Up!s OnStage with a whole slew of other demonstrators.  Head over to my Facebook page to check out pictures of our travels and some sneak peeks of things to come.

For today’s card I started  off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock, embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder, and matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Next I adhered down a pattern from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper.

Next I used the Foliage Frames Thinlits to cut out a floral frame from Night of Navy cardstock.  I cut out a few different leaves using the same thinlits and Silver Foil, Petal Pink, and Soft Sea Foam cardstock to adhere behind the Night of Navy frame.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Petal Pink ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure – Happy Inkin’ Thursday

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

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  Around it I wound some Very Vanilla Cotton Twine.

Next I cut out a Very Vanilla oval using the Layering Oval Framelits.  I stamped the sentiment from the Alpine Adventure Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink.  When I put the stamp on the block, I sort of maneuvered it so it would wrap around.  The photopolymer stamps are great for this!

Over the twine I adhered another pattern from the Festive Farmhouse DSP in a banner.

Next I cut out a sleigh from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper using the coordinating Alpine Sports Thinlits.

Next I stamped the wreath from the Alpine Adventures Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink and the holly over it in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I cut it out with the same thinlits.  I added a Cherry Cobbler ribbon over the wreath.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Varied Vases – HSS302

As we speak I am on my way with four team members to Orlando for OnStage.

As a demonstrator, this is one of the many perks we get and is a great reason to join today.  Stampin’ Up! is celebrating their 30th anniversary and it’s going to be quite a time celebrating.

Also, not only do we get to see the 2019 Occasions Catalog, but pre-order from it!  I plan on posting tons of pictures along the way on my Facebook and Instagram pages, so be sure to “like” them so you don’t miss anything!!

Now on to today’s card…

Today’s card features the Hand Stamped Sentiment’s newest color challenge!  I just loved these colors together!!  Be sure to play along this week!

My card starts off with Merry Merlot cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

Next I adhered down a piece of Gold Foil over the cards front.

I stamped the frame from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I used the Varied Vases stamp set to stamp the vases and flowers in Merry Merlot, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry ink (stamping off for the inside of the flowers).  I stamped the sentiment also in Merry Merlot ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! First Frost – CTS295

The next two weeks are going to be quite busy for me.

This week I head out for a scrapbooking getaway and next week I’ll be in Orlando for OnStage with Stampin’ Up!

I plan on posting lots of pictures along the way of both so be sure to “like” my Facebook page so you can follow along!

My card today is a simple and sweet one using the First Frost Bundle.  It starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the “vine” image from the First Frost Stamp Set in Mint Macaron three times in the left hand corner.  I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink underneath it.

The Whisper White cardstock got matted on Merry Merlot cardstock.  Next I used the Frosted Bouquet Thinlits to cut out two sprigs from Petal Pink cardstock.

I stamped two flowers in Merry Merlot and Petal Pink ink and cut them out with the same thinlits.

I added a Mint Macaron bow and a few rhinestones to finish it off.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Christmas Card

Notice anything a little different around here?!

I got new graphics!

This is something I’ve been working on for a while and finally was able to switch things over.  Slowly but surely everything will look just a little different.

Different look, but same blog 🙂

My card today starts off with Old Olive cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock which eventually gets matted on Crumb Cake cardstock.

I used the Stamparatus and the Winter Woods Stamp Set to create my trees.  I first stamped the trees in Old Olive ink on the top.  I then came back and stamped the trunks in Crumb Cake ink and added some Poppy Parade and Blackberry Bliss ink to highlight the trees.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Vellum.  I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Finally I used the In The Woods Framelits to cut out two trees from Gold Foil and I added two Gold Sequins to finish it off.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Making Christmas Bright 2018

Come Christmas time I LOVE to decorate.  We usually get right to it the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

My favorite decoration is white Christmas lights tucked into boughs at night when it’s dark and with a few candles lit.  Just thinking about it makes my heart happy.

I wanted to recreate white Christmas lights, but had to figure out a way to do this since the Christmas lights from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set leaves the bulbs for you to color in.

So I made this card for last week’s Facebook Live Tutorial.  I do a tutorial every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm EST.

If you catch the video live and leave some sort of a comment, at the end I draw a name for someone to receive the card (blank of course).

So check out the Facebook Video Tutorial below to see how exactly I created white Christmas lights.  And if you ever miss any of my videos, you can check them all out on my YouTube channel.
