So Proud

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There were some great ideas for birthday cards.  You can see my post by clicking HERE.   And you can go thru the full hop from my page.

Today I am sharing the Morning Star stamp set.  It is a sweet stamp set that pairs with the Stitched Stars  Dies that were part of the Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set they were paired with in that catalog retired, but the dies carried on.  I love that Stampin’ Up! is extending the life of dies and punches.  That is so nice on our pocket books!  Here is today’s card.

 

 

The flowers on the card are the morning glory flowers and vines.  Some may consider them weeds actually.  I always thought they were pretty first thing in the morning.  I used the Rococo Rose for the flowers and Pear Pizzaz for the vines.  They are my flowers and don’t have to be the correct color.  I love the Rococo Rose.

I used the flowers as background for one of the larger of the Stitched Stars dies.  The center star is two sizes smaller.  I stamped the star stamp with the Rococo Rose as well.  The stars are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals for depth.

I have loved the Scalloped Linen Ribbon since it debuted.  I just never seem to have the proper place for it.  Today’s project is Perfect!!!  I paired the ribbon with the new Label Me Fancy Punch.  I punched out the sentiment, which is from the stamp set.  I also used the ribbon slot that is part of the punch.  There are guides on the bottom of the punch on each end of the slot to assist you in lining it up.  I was very pleased at how easy it worked.  I usually have a backing for my sentiment layers.  With the ribbon slides and the sentiment like a buckle, I did not feel it needed a backing.  You will see me using that punch a lot more now that I have played with it!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked today’s card and will return tomorrow for another one.

Sending Hugs

I hope you enjoyed the Pals Blog Hop yesterday.  There were some great cards on there.  I have a Poppy card to share for today.  I am sending hugs to anyone in need of a big hug!  I personally love hugs.

 

Stampin' Up!, Poppy Moments, Painted Poppies, Ornate Frames, Perfectly Framed, Jackie Beers

 

On this card, I did the opposite of the previous card with the die cut poppies.   You can see that card HERE.  If truth be told, I made an oopsy!!!!  When I was cutting  I placed the wrong die on the DSP.  But I thought “why not see how it looks”.  That’s what I get for not paying attention at the cutting machine!  I am thrilled that it does work by giving just a hint of the DSP.

I stamped the tall poppy with the attached bud a couple of times and colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I then placed the two large die cut poppies over them and raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I like the look it gives.

The sentiment is from the Perfectly Framed stamp set.  It coordinates with the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday Catalog.  They carried over and were from a Halloween set.  They are gorgeous frames with layers and curly pieces.  I love when new things coordinate with old.  I feel like I get more for my money.

Speaking of more bang for your buck.  Have you checked out the new items that released last week?  They all coordinate with products from the Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs.  The DSP is especially awesome as it coordinates with the various punches that are new in those catalogs.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you will come back tomorrow.

We are half way through February.  That means we have 1 1/2 months left on Sale-A-Bration.  Please check out what I have pointed out with the SAB Join Promotion.  I wish I could get that amount of product for that price!  It really is the most wonderful shopping spree!  If you are at all curious, I would love to talk with you about the promotion and the benefits of being a demonstrator.

So Sweet

We are about one third way through the Sale-A-Bration period.  I thought I would give some extra love to some of my favorite pieces.  I am focusing on the Little Ladybug stamp set.

 

 

I think the ladybugs are just so darn cute!!  And the best part is the stamp set is FREE with a $300.00 order or a party that totals at least $300.00 where you are the Host.  This is on top of the FREE items you can get for every $50.00 you spend.  Woohoo!!

To make this card even better, I used the soon to be released coordinating Ladybug Dies.  They will be released on February 4th .  You can see the flyer just below the post.  There are a few other coordinating dies for SAB and the Occasions Catalogs.  The beginning of February is a perfect time for a party!!  I hope you will give me a call and let’s set one up.

OK, on to the particulars of the card.  The base is a seldom used color that fit perfectly.  It is Call Me Clover and is an In Color that retires this coming June.  It is a perfect Spring, Saintt. Patrick’s Day type green.  I also used several SAB products for this card.  The black and white DSP is the reverse of a sheet from the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper, another FREE SAB item.

I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends.  They were then die cut using the Ladybugs Dies.  I have them early from a perk for being a Demonstrator.  I raised the ladybug with dimensionals but glued down the flower.

I have a list of all of the colors of Stampin’ blends listed in the Supply List. Thank you for stopping by today.

Wonderful Adventure

I have a very different card for you today. It is quite different from my normal style.  I have layers and layers of die cuts.  This bundle of products lends itself perfectly to this style of card.  So I had to give it a try.

 

 

See what I mean???  Very unlike my normal card.  But I am happy with this one.  The products are the Sea of Textures and the Under The Sea matching Dies.  They were previously a bundle, but carried over to this current annual catalog and are no longer at the 10% bundle discounted price.  They are definitely still a great deal though.

I chose “water” colors of Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, and Pool Party card stock to make this card.  I added in some Soft Suede and Sahara Sand as well.

I love this sentiment!  What a great one for encouragement for a graduate or someone headed to a new job or off to college.  I paired it with the Story Label and Timeless Label punches.  My sweet friend Julie DiMatteo is who showed me how well these two punches layer together.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back on Monday for more new projects.

Thankful for Pals September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  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.

When I saw the theme for this month’s blog hop, I knew immediately the sentiment I would be showcasing.  As I have gotten older I realize how fortunate I am in so many ways.  One of those  things I include is the stamping community of course.  In that regard this sentiment speaks to me.

 

Stampin' Up!, Country Home, Gather Together, bouquet Bunch, Stitched Rectangle, Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaron,Jackie Beers

 

My Thankful sentiment is from the Country Home stamp set.  It carried over to the new annual catalog and I was so happy!  The new Gather Together stamp set in the Holiday Catalog pairs perfectly with it  , as does the Come Gather Designer Series Paper.

As I generally do, I chose my colors from the designer series paper.  Pretty Peacock is quickly becoming one of my favorites and I love how well is pairs with Mint Macaron.  Looking at them separately you would not think so.  I also added Sahara Sand for the pitcher and the flecks in the bouquet.

The greenery is from the Bouquet Bunch Dies.  The pearls around the edges of the Stitched Rectangles are our basic Pearl colored with the Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.  I hope you will give this a try.  Surprisingly they dry almost immediately.

The bit of shimmer ribbon is the Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon.  I added a Linen Thread bow to tie in to the Sahara Sand pitcher.

Thank you for looking at my project.  I really appreciate you stopping by and I would love to see what you think.

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, October 9, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share “My Favorite Season” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Textures

I have what I consider a very Clean card to share today.  To me, Clean means it doesn’t have much going on.  I kept looking at the card wondering what it needed or what I should add.  I didn’t want to leave it like this.  But then I decided anything I added would not work.  So here is a bit of a different look for me.

 

Can you believe there is No Designer Series Paper?  I was shocked myself!  LOL!!!  I have been intending to use this die for some time.  I saw another card with the flowers created as I have done.  I apologize that I cannot remember who created it!!  But ever since then I have wanted to do this.

Creating the added color in the flower is very simple.  I cut the design from the top layer in the Bermuda Bay Card Stock.  I pushed out and saved all of the petals.  I then did the same with a piece of So Saffron Card Stock.  I adhered the top layer to the card base. ( I do love the look of Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay!)   All I did to adhere the petals was put just a dot of Multipurpose Glue in the slot and lay the petal inside.  I had my paper piercer ready in case I needed to slide the petal around at all.

The sentiment really hit home with me.  I have been trying to grow my Stampin’ Up! Team and have friends who tell me that I can do it.  One especially is helping me come out of my “norm” and be more creative in my plans, so this sentiment was spoke to me.  I layered the Story Label and Timeless Label punches.

The only accessories that I added for this card was the pearls at the center of each flower.  I felt like it needed more but just couldn’t think of anything that would Help, as opposed to being Too Much.  So here you have it.  A Clean card from me.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I know it is a Holiday and some of you will be working anyway.  I had one of those jobs that didn’t take off for weekends and Holidays.  I hope you all have a good day though.
