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.

Easter Greetings

This adorable bunny brings a smile to my face every time I look at it.  The artists at Stampin’ Up! were perfect on drawing this little guy.  I thought of him on an Easter card from the beginning.  I have that card to share with you today.  However by changing the sentiment, this would be a really cute baby card or just a Spring card.

 

Fable Friends, 148670

 

I think the Basket Weave Embossing Folder is a perfect pairing with the cute rabbit for Easter.  I was sort of surprised as  I was putting the card together that I had chosen all the pieces with texture to them.  My subconscious is better than I am!

I used a variety of products on this card and they are all listed at the bottom of the page.  The only thing to make note of is that I added the pearl on top of the little Frosted Flower Embellishment.  I believe I copied Julie DiMatteo on that.  I love it.  Then I noticed in my photo that it seems to have moved over just a tad.  I did not have time to retake the picture.  Oops!

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another project before the weekend begins.

His Grace for Pals March Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

In looking for a stamp set to meet the Spring theme, I kept coming back to the set His Grace.  I love the flowers, that was what drew me to the set when I first saw it.  So I went with my instinct and made a very soft Easter card.  You can’t get more Spring than this.

 

His Grace, 148676

 

This is a really easy card to replicate as there is not a lot of stamping.  The floral is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  The Tufted layer is just a soft touch I chose instead of using DSP which my detract from the floral.

The die cut circle is from Wonderful Floral Framelits.  It is a simple WOW that I love!  The different look it gives to a simple circle (or it has a touch of an oval maybe?) is a nice change.  I popped it up with some dimensional and added a single pearl for some bling.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 10, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Families First” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Thank you for visiting my page today!  I hope you will come back soon.  I have listed all of the products I used at the bottom of the post.  Now, on to the next blog in the list….Enjoy!!

Beautiful Day for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! We are grinning from ear-to-ear with excitement over all the amazing, new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog – and you’re going to love what we are sharing today. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer sneak peeks at new products from the upcoming catalog. What fun! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My Top of the List Favorite from the new Catalog is the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  Actually, it and all that is in that Suite of products!  From the banner above, it would appear that Brian King loves this paper as well!!  My card for today focuses on quite a few of the products, but especially the DSP.

 

Love What You Do, 148042

 

As I said above, I have used quite a few products from this AWESOME Suite.  In doing so, I have a lot more texture than I normally do.  Of course the star is the Designer Series Paper.  As an unexpected touch, I let it be the main focal point and added a little extra with different ribbons. (All of the supplies are listed at the very bottom of the post.)

The sentiment is part of a “Must Have” stamp set as well.  It is Love What You Do and has beautiful flowers, backgrounds, and sentiments.  I know I say it is all a Must Have, but this catalog is really over the top as far as I am concerned and I do want it all!

One other unexpected item on my card is the lighter base color, which is Petal Pink.  It is an Oh My! color.  I think it has a touch of light peach to the pink.  Whatever it may have, it is gorgeous.  And it pairs well with other colors both bold and bright.

Thank you for stopping by my page on the Blog Hop.  I very much appreciate it and love to read your comments.

I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Deb Cozzone . There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

    It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up!

Spring

I am once again focusing on some of the retiring products.  Today’s feature is the Host Rewards Stamp Set, Background Bits, and the ever popular Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

 

Background Bits, 144029

 

Because this is a Host Rewards stamp set, the only way you can get this gorgeous set is to either host a party, or have a qualifying order.  But, since you are stocking up on your favorite retiring product, this is the perfect time to do either one.

I love the soft Spring colors of this DSP and I tried to coordinate the stamped flowers by using the Wisteria Wonder marker to tie it together.  And of course the Petal Burst Embossing Folder always is a great pairing for flower stamps and/or DSP.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  If you are interested in earning this set before it is gone, please let me know.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Stained Glass

I have a beautiful Stained Glass card today that I made as a sympathy card.  There is no sentiment on the front, so actually it could be for any occasion.  But I needed a sympathy card and was thrilled with how it turned out.  I hope you love it as well.

 

Graceful Glass 6 X 6 Designer Vellum, 146344

 

Doesn’t this actually look like a piece of stained glass?  And the best part is that you do not have to stamp or emboss it.  This is a piece of the Graceful Glass 6X6 Designer Vellum.  I trimmed the panel down to fit on a standard card and then just colored with my Stampin’ Blends.  There are more colors coming in the new catalog and I cannot wait.

This piece is so pretty that it doesn’t really need anything to surround it.  I even thought of making a taller/skinnier card. But in the end decided on the regular A2 size.  To even things out I used to the Softly Falling Embossing Folder to give some texture to the side panels you see.  Sometimes a little bit is all you need.

If you do not currently have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love to hear from you and will be happy to send you the new catalog as soon as they are available.   Better yet, join my team and get a lot of the new products in your Starter Kit.  You get to pick everything for your Starter Kit.  It is the ultimate shopping spree!  Contact me and let’s chat.
