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.

A Classic

Today’s card is one that is masculine but could be used as a Father’s Day or any other reason.  I used the Geared Up Garage stamp set , which is a great one for any guy, or gal, who loves cars.

Geared Up Garage, 148590

 

Everything I used, except for the card stock, is part of the Garage Suite.  I love the coordination of our Suites of Products.  Actually the card stock is part of the Suite as well.  The colors come from the designer series paper.  Tranquil Tide and Crushed Curry are perfect and unexpected at the same time.

Did you notice the little accessory hanging off the ribbon?  It is hard to see, so here is a close up of it.

 

These Classic Garage Metal Elements are also part of the suite.  I think they are awesome.  I chose to use the key since I had showcased the car.  There are also wrenches in the set.  They are all perfect additions to the card.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked a masculine card for a bit of a change.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.  I also have the retiring products link for you as well.

Always

The retiring list of Stampin’ Up! products was published yesterday afternoon.  I have a link to it in my Online Store after this post.  Or you can simply click on the Shop tab at the top of the page and go there anytime.  REMINDER:  There are quite a lot of products that are carrying over.  But if they are part of a bundle currently, they will show that retiring!!!  That is just you can no longer get it in a bundle with the 10% discount after the new catalog goes live.

I am sharing one of the retiring stamp sets from the Occasions catalog.  So do not panic, it is still available now.  It is the Easter Set, His Grace.  I love this set for the sentiments and the images.  I do not think it has been given near enough love by folks.  So I am sharing it today for a non-Easter card.  I hope it will inspire you to try it.

 

His Grace, 148676

This was really a pretty quick card to make.  It is stamped and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  If you follow my blog you know already how much I love coloring with these guys.  This was very simple and I like that.

The corners are punched using one end of the Trio Corner Punch just to give it a little attention other than adding ribbon or other embellishments.

The sentiment is from Accented Blooms, a sweet set from the Annual Catalog.  I love the look of stamping the sentiment across a focal point.

Thank you for visiting today.  I do have the link to the Retiring Lists and hope you will grab anything you are interested in right away so as not to be disappointed.  The retiring In Colors will be among the first items to sell out.  I also have a HOST CODE listed below if you would like to place an order.

 

 

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.

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.

Crafting Forever

Before I get to the project for today……There have been quite a few messages from Stampin’ Up! in the last couple of days.  Some are well received and other not so much.  One thing I have tried to tell myself is that change is good.   Wether it is family, work, or fun, there will be change.  So please do not panic over the discontinuing of the Stampin’ Trimmer and the Big Shot.  My hopes are that the replacements will be even better!

The good and bad of the reception to the latest news is what inspired today’s card.  Crafting is my hobby and I plan on doing it until I simply cannot get the body to work that way.  So I was thinking of the “Keep Calm, and Craft On” sentiment and wished I had it.  LOL!!!  Here is today’s card.

 

Crafting Forever, 143958

I used the Whisper White notecards and envelopes for the project today.  No cutting or measuring, just stamp on the pre-scored card!  It could not be easier to do.

The two stamp sets I used here are from the annual catalog.  The Crafting Forever is so great for quick cards for crafting friends.  And the Playful Backgrounds goes with so many stamp sets as a subtle background.  For this background, I stamped off one time for the stripes and then stamped full strength for the circles or bubbles (I’m not sure which they are?).

The stamp itself was stamped on a scrap, colored with Stampin’ Blends and then cut out.  I raised it with a couple of dimensional.  The final touch is the Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon.  I would love for SU to do more of this type ribbon.  The subtle variations make it match so many more colors than the name itself.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Pal’s Blog Hop and please come back tomorrow.  All of the supplies, as limited as they are, are listed at the bottom of the page.
