Stampin’ Up! “Love” Blog Hop – Watts of Occasions

This month’s Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Love.”  Have fun hopping around and seeing how everyone interpreted this theme.

My card today starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Polka Dot Basics embossing folder.  I matted this on a slightly larger Whisper White panel and adhered it to the card front.

I then layered up a pattern from the Fresh Florals DSP, a banner of Emerald Envy cardstock, and the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Watts of Occasions stamp set and was stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White cardstock.  (I’m a sucker for a good punny sentiment.)

Next I cut out an oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits out of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I stamped the light bulb from the Watts of Occasions stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using Paper Snips and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I wound around a few times some Berry Burst ribbon and tied a Linen Thread knot around the middle to hold it in place and adhered it to the card using a small piece of Tear & Tape adhesive.


My card today was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge and the Paper Players challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Watts of Occasions Merry & Bright

So excited for tonight, I’ll be going live at 7:30 EST on Facebook giving a tutorial on Monday’s card which uses a coloring technique.  Swing by and check it out.

If you watch live and leave me a comment, I’ll send you a blank homemade card!!

For my card today, I’m using the Watts of Occasions Stamp Set.  I’m a sucker for punny sentiments and I love this set for that exact reason.

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.  I cut a pattern from the Merry Little Christmas DSP to cover the entire card front.  I then cut a smaller panel of Vellum to put over that.

Next I cut a panel of Basic Black cardstock the width of the card and stamped the sentiment from the Watts of Occasions stamp set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.  I put an Old Olive enamel star and shape next to it.

I stamped the light bulb in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using the Old Olive Stampin Blends markers.  I fussy cut it out and adhered to the card.  Next I cut out the light bulb rays using the Pocket Framelits and Old Olive cardstock.



I’m sure you have been awfully good this year.

Do you have Stampin’ Up! goodies on your Christmas wish list?
Are you afraid loved one won’t be the exact items you would like?

I offer gift cards!!!  Give your loved ones my e-mail address ( and I’ll take over from there.


As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period Stampin Up will take as many orders as they receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30.

Please note the following changes:

  • Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
  • Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.


I just ordered the 2018 Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.  I would be happy to mail you one.  Just fill out the form below:
