Free As A Bird

The next two days I am breaking out some new stamp sets.  I know other demonstrators have been using them for a few weeks.  I wanted to give some last minute LOVE to the retiring products first.  And I will continue to do that.  But I thought you would like to see some new items, and I was getting antsy wanting to play with them!!

 

Stampin' Up!, Free As A Bird, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

I assume that you guessed the stamp set from the title of the page today!  Aren’t these birds adorable?  And the designer series paper is a WOW!!!  Stampin’ Up! colored several of the pages with the Stampin’ Blends and then photographed it for the paper.  Extreme Talent!!

I chose the branch full of birds and decided to make them Robins.  I know the colors are not perfect, but I love coloring.  You will probably see many variations of colors as I play with this set more.  The Designer Series Paper, Bird Ballad, is great with birds, feathers, flowers, etc.  I chose the feathers today because of the colors and it leaves white space to match the birds.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great day and will return tomorrow.  I have another new stamp set to share!

Be Happy

I have a very simple and quick card to share today.  I have fallen back to the annual catalog for the Rooted In Nature stamp set.  I wanted to showcase some of the retiring colors and thought the nature set would be perfect.

 

Rooted In Nature, 146482

 

I used the Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist retiring ink colors as well as Granny Apple Green.  The leaf that looks sort of Blue is the Tranquil Tide.  It is really amazing how colors sort of change when next to other colors.

The sentiment is a favorite of mine.  I love the look it gives.  I flanked it with the Lemon Lime Twist smaller leaves and then made a tag from the Banner Triple Punch.  Of course I had to add something else.  So I decided on the Linen Thread.  You can never go wrong with that thread!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate it and as always have listed all of the products used at the bottom of the post.

Dear Friend

One of the best deals that Stampin’ Up! has in every catalog are the Host Rewards Stamp Sets.  They are basically half price sets.  The downside is that you can only purchase them if you are a host or you place a qualifying order of $150.00.  I know reaching that dollar amount is very easy!! LOL!!  But having a party with a group of friends is even better.  I would love to share some stamping with you and a few friends.  Think about it please!

I am showcasing one of the Host Rewards sets today.  It is the fabulous Very Vintage stamp set.  I love the look of the faded/distressed cards you can make with this.  I hope you like it.

 

Very Vintage Host Rewards set, 146801

 

I just adore the softness of this card.  I paired Sahara Sand with Highland Heather and I think it worked beautifully.  I stamped off with the Sahara Sand ink for the background.  I stamped the doily three different times.  I then stamped the flowers over top.  The Highland Heather is dark enough to overcome the Sahara Sand easily.

To finish the card off, I tied a knot with the Braided Linen Trim.  I am thrilled that it will be carrying over into the new annual catalog.  I also stamped the flowers on a scrap of paper and punched the small butterfly from the Butterfly Duet Punch.  The punch is back in stock and is also carrying over to the next catalog.  I gave just a touch of bling to the butterfly by adding the smallest of the rhinestones to it.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow.  If you would like to check out all of the retiring products, I have the Last Chance link below.  I also have a Host Code if you place an order.

I will be ordering the new Annual Catalogs soon.  If you do not currently have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love to help you.  And I would be glad to send you the new catalog when they become available.  Please send me a message if you would like one.  I answer emails pretty quickly.

A Good Day

I am mixing two of my most favorite stamp sets today.  One is A Good Day stamp set.  It is so versatile, especially when you need a small sentiment or circle.  I really am sad to see it on the retiring list.  The second is Wishing You Well.  It is a great distinctive stamp set.  The bow is probably my favorite.  So to combine the two I made an Easter wreath.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Good Day, Wishing You Well, Touches of Texture, Jackie Beers

A Good Day, 145873

This little bunny has been a favorite from day one.  I think he is just adorable, and the perfect size for so many things.  I was surprised when I had the wreath idea that he fits perfectly!

The background splatter is from Touches Of Texture stamp set.  I stamped under the wreath with Mint Macaron and then above and below is Mint Macaron stamped off once.  This is another set that will be missed.  I will be looking for a new favorite background splatter!

To finish off the card I went around the outside of the wreath circle with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker.  It is a great way to differentiate the white when layering a white piece onto white.  I thought it needed a bit more though.  So I added the Copper Thread under the wreath.

Thank you for visiting today.  I am a bit late on today’s post, but life happens.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Be sure to check the retiring products list.  Some may already be selling out. Usually the retiring In-Colors go first!  I also have a host code for the  month listed below the Last Chance sticker.  You can click on the Last Chance and go straight to the retiring products.

Animal Expedition

I have been finishing my swap cards and 3D swaps for OnStage in Charlotte this weekend.  Whooo!! I have been really far behind on all of that.  But I am down to just putting the boxes together.  They will get worked on during the ride up there tomorrow.  I will share that project with you next week.

Before I get to  my card, I snapped a picture of my gorgeous azalea bush that has decided to pop out in the last couple of days.  Here it is.

 

For todays card I have a really quick and sweet card.  I have been using some Annual Catalog stamps this week and today continues that theme.  I went with the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  It is so adorable!  And the Label Me Pretty stamp set for the little sentiment.

 

The only stamping on this card is the sentiment.  The sweet animals were punched from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  How easy is that!!!  I paired it with another piece of DSP from the same package.  The base colors are Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  They are both on the soon to be retiring list.  They are in the 2017-2019 In Colors.  So we have known they would be leaving us.  I really do wish the Lemon Lime Twist could stay.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I will share my swaps next week.  Please Like my FaceBook page, Blue Line Stamping, and you may get to see some sneak peeks at new products coming soon.

Tea Together

I have a cute cup of tea to share with you today!  All I need to go with it is a lovely scone.  I have traveled across England and Scotland eating my way in scones!  So anytime I see the lovely Tea Together stamp set I want a scone to go with the tea.  Alas, no scones for today’s card but there is a sweet rose instead.

 

Tea Together, 148779

 

I love the unexpected of the rose inside the tea cup.  I die cut it with the Tea Time Framelits.  They were part of Sale-A-Bration and is supposed to carry over to the next annual catalog.  The rose is the only part of the card that is die cut.  I wanted a simpler look for today.  When I adhered the rose, I straight cut across the bottom of the rose to match the cup edge.  Also, I did not put adhesive on the leaves, only the rose.  I sort of lifted up on the leaves to give them the 3D look.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched it out with the 1 1/8″ scallop circle punch.  The heart is the Heart Epoxy Droplets that I colored with the Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend.  I love these hearts, and the ability to make them any color you want.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I very much appreciate you looking at my projects.  I also, love to read your comments.

As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.
