Piggy Confidence

I returned from a FABULOUS trip to Charlotte for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event.  I was surrounded but a large group of Demonstrators who were all so thrilled to be there.  The weather was not too hard on us and fun was had!

We did a card swap in my group and I forgot to take a picture of the card I made.  However, I used the same basic card with my Stamp Club last week.  So I am sharing that version.  It is really the same, just different Designer Series Paper.  I will say that using different paper gives it a very different look.  I don’t know why that is.  Today’s version is very bright!

 

This Little Piggy, 143922

 

I adore This Little Piggy!  And am THRILLED to share with you that it is carrying over into the new Annual Catalog.  WooHoo!!!  Seeing the catalog early, and let me tell you that it is AWESOME, is one of the best reasons to be a SU Demonstrator!

Back to the card!!  I stamped the piggy and colored her with the Stampin’ Blends.  You may not be able to see from the photograph, but I added Wink Of Stella to her wings.  Wings should sparkle!!  And that is pretty much it.  I have the measurements for the DSP listed below.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you like this card.  It is a great way to use up scrap DSP, and the small pieces we cut off when trimming layers.  I have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of the post.  I have also added a HOST CODE if you would like to place an order with me.  If you do not currently have a SU Demonstrator I would love to help you and if you will let me know, I will send you a new catalog next month when they become available.

Measurements:

  • Base layer is 8 1/2 X 5 1/2
  • Layer is 4 1/4 X 5 3/8
  • Dsp is 4 X 5 1/4, cut into 2 pieces of roughly 1/3 and 2/3 . I simply flipped over one piece for the two DSP you see.  You can always mix and match if you are doing multiples.
  • The strip is 1/2 X 4 of coordinating card stock, or you could use a strip of ribbon if you prefer.
  • Pig layers are 2 3/4 X 3 and 2 5/8 X 2 7/8

 

 

If you place an order with me, please use the April Host Code of 3KNKXJFH.  If your order is $75.00 (of product) or more, I will send you a small gift.  If it is over $150.00 (of product) I will send you a small gift, but DO NOT use the code. 150.00 is the minimum host rewards so you get the host rewards.

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.

Cheers To You

I have some awesome new products to show you at the bottom of the post. So don’t close out too soon!  But let’s get to the card of the day first.

The layout I have used for today’s card is one that would work for pretty much any card.  And I adore it!  It is also great for the scraps we all cannot stand to through away.  The layers can be adjusted actually so that they would fit the scrap pieces you have.  Isn’t that a great idea?

 

Itty Bitty Birthdays, 148618

I planned this card as a Birthday card, but in adding the categories that it wold fit, I realized this sentiment is an awesome one.  It would be great for a Graduation, which is coming up real soon, or a retirement.  And probably a few others.

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.  I love all of the “Itty Bitty” type sets.  They are the perfect size and usually cover almost any occasion, even the more unusual ones.  Or at least ones that you do not use very often.

I have not used a lot of Grapefruit Grove card stock, so decided to remedy that today.  It is one of the colors in the pack of this gorgeous DSP.  It is the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I also used Night of Navy as the DSP backing , and Pineapple Punch for the sentiment backing.

Thank you so much for stopping in today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s card and will return tomorrow to see another new project.

All The Best

I am trying to use some older products as talk is beginning about the next Annual Catalog.  I know we will be losing some awesome stamp sets.  So I am working my way back through some sets.  Today’s card is a carry over set from the Holiday Catalog, First Frost.

 

First Frost, 148420

 

I love using stamp sets that have versatility.  This set was in the Holiday Catalog, but obviously has other uses than the winter holidays.  I have paired it with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration.  I love this paper because of the black and white on the opposite side from the butterflies.

Another product I do not use often enough is the Tailored Tag Punch.  I really like the versatility of it.  It is a tad larger than some of the others, so it holds a bit larger stamped sentiment.  Also, it is very easy to cut a background for it due to the straight sides.  Here I just secured a little bit larger Basic Black piece of card stock and used my paper snips to cut the edge.  Easy Peasy!!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I appreciate it very much.  All of the products are listed at the bottom of the page.  And the Botanical Butterfly DSP is still available for FREE with a $50.00 order through the end of the  month.

Part of My Story for CTS306

I am playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #306 today.  Brian King was who inspired this sketch.  Of course, I had to give it a try.  My first thought after seeing the sketch was that the Frogs would be perfect.  Here is my card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Part of My Story, So Hoppy Together, Gingham, Jackie Beers

Part of My Story, 149719

Here is the sketch I am CASEing:

As I said above, I decided on the frog from Hoppy Together, A SAB stamp set, right away, and then the Lemon Lime Gingham was a perfect match.  But I could not find the sentiment that seemed to be “Just Right”.  Then I ran across the Part of My Story stamp set, another SAB item, and new I had found the correct sentiment.  “I’m So Glad You Are a Part of My Story” is one that I loved the minute I saw it.  It makes me think of dear friends, loved ones, and especially the friends and family we can just be our super silly self with.  The perfect pairing for the crazy frog!!

Other than finding the perfect match, the card was super quick and easy.  I stamped in Tuxedo Black and colored the frog with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I love that you can see a touch of the Gingham check through the coloring.  It adds a bit of dimension to his body.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for a another new project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.

You Make Me Happy

My first card club of the year was yesterday.  It is so nice to get back in the groove and share what I love with friends!  I could not wait to share with them products from the new catalog.   You will be seeing these cards in the next couple of days.

For the first card I used the Meant To Be Bundle.  Oh My!!  Those dies are fabulous.  You really do need the Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheets for some of the hearts.  It makes adhering them super easy.  And the little step of adding the adhesive sheet before cutting is really no big deal.  For me, it is remembering to do it!  LOL!!

This card is not just for Valentine’s Day.  With the sentiment I used it could be for a variety of reasons, or the sentiment could easily be swapped for another.

 

Meant To Be Bundle, 150587

 

I LOVE everything about these lovely dies.  The stitching, the curly lace look, and the solid hearts (although I did not use one of those on this project), are all perfect for a variety of ideas.

I pulled my colors from this gorgeous DSP. It is the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  And for a change I used the main side instead of the reverse side 🙂  I did stamp the sentiment is Lovely Lipstick, which is also in this DSP.  I needed the darker color to show up on the blue.  I just could not bring myself to use Black on this card.

Color Combination:

 

 

This gorgeous ribbon is one of the Sale-A-Bration items.  This means it is FREE!  And you get five rolls of this beautiful ribbon simply by spending 50.00 on products.  Hint:  the Meant to Be Bundle is 53.00, so there you are!  This Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack contains 5 Yards each of Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist !  WOW!!  That is 25 Yards of ribbon at No additional cost to you!!

Thank you for stopping in this morning.  I very much appreciate it.  I have listed the measurements below and the complete supply list is a the bottom of the page.  You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store.

Measurements:

  • 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored and folded
