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:

You Are Loved!

Have you thoroughly flipped page by page of the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Catalogs?  Mine are already dog eared from being flipped through so many times.  But then I have had a head start on you. Please remember that you have access to the online catalogs by clicking on the catalog on the right side of my page.  It takes you to all three current catalogs and you can open the pdf of each.  So they are always at your fingertips!!

Now to share a new project with you.  This is a great new stamp set that pairs with an existing punch and stamp set.  Can you guess which one?  Yes, it is a match to Mary Fish’s Million Dollar stamp set and punch named Varied Vases.  This set coordinates with the punch and has great sentiments and fonts.  For me anyway, pretty fonts are a must have.  So here is my card

Stampin' Up!, Vibrant Vases, Happiness Blooms, Vases Builder Punch, Jackie Beers

Vibrant Vases, 148656

 

I love how vibrant this Night of Navy card and envelope are.  And yes, it is a new item as well!!  It is on the bottom of page 26.  The cards and envelopes come in two sizes in the package of 20.  So you get ten of each size with matching envelopes.  I especially love the striping on the inside of the flap.

This card, and the layout, are super quick and easy.  It would be great for any smaller stamp.  I chose to go with the one single vase of flowers and a beautiful sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this first day of the new catalogs!  I will have more new ideas fo you next week.  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the page.  But please do not stop here.  I have outlined all the great reasons for becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator right now.  Of course, this offer is good during Sale-A-Bration, so you have from now through March to consider it.  I hope you will jump on the opportunity now and begin experiencing all the great products you can choose from.

Valentine Wreath

Happy New Year !!!

I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve and a wonderful beginning to your New Year.  I stayed home and enjoyed the quiet.

Today I am continuing with sharing new projects with some of the Retiring Items from the Holiday Catalog.  Today’s project uses a stamp set that I am surprised did not carry over.  It has multiple stamps for most of the different times of year.  I am referring to the Making Everyday Bright stamp set.  The matching punch and stamp set did carry over however.

I have also used my Stamparatus for another great “Additional Idea”.  I have posted previously about the “Wreath Blank”.  You can see that HERE.  That post explains the wreath process and how to make one of your own.  I will remind you that I used the Layering Squares Dies.  And used the largest of the Non-scalloped ones.  I suggest making a couple of the templates to have on hand.  I store mine in the Stamparatus Carry Bag so I always know where they are.

Here is today’s project, which could be either a “love you” or Valentine card.

 

Making Everyday Bright, 148813

 

I will say that I TWO Step wreath maker on this one.  The stamps were not cut to allow doing the bulb and the glow at the same time.  So I had to do the process twice to get both images.  I believe it was well worth my time to do that.  I am very happy with the final product.

I did have trouble deciding what to put in the center.  I finally decided on the heart from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  I punched it from Flirty Flamingo card stock and then added some Fine Tip Glue Pen glue to the top of it for a bit of added shine.

The inside of the heart lightbulbs are colored with the Light Flirtly Flamingo Stampin’ Blend.  The DSP I used is the beautiful All My Love DSP from the upcoming Occasions Catalog.

Thank you so much for checking out my post. I hope this gives you some cause to review the Clearance Rack for this stamp set.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Love You To Pieces

I want to apologize if you were looking for a post yesterday.  I have been on vacation and though (Haha) that I was scheduled through yesterday.  Well , you know how that goes…..I was wrong.  But I am back now and with a special card.

Today is our 38th Wedding Anniversary!  It really does not seem possible.  But here we are.  So I made a cute card for my hubby.  We are not into gifts anymore and usually go for humor.

 

Love You To Pieces, 147392

 

It is more “cute” than anything, but fits us perfectly.  On a side note:  How do you lose a complete set of dies?  I know I purchased this as the bundle, but the dies are not to be found!!  A nice tip though is that it is really easy to fussy cut these puzzle pieces.  Although it helps if you do not wait until the very last minute and then realize you cannot find the dies!

I kept the card very plain, only two base colors and then the bit of coloring on the heart shape.  I love Night Of Navy with almost anything.  This time I have paired it with Gray Granite.  A great new gray.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate it more than you know.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Wild About You

I have a cute and whimsical card for you today. I have used the Animal Outing stamp set a few times already and just adore it.  But today I have added the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper to compliment the sentiment from the stamp set.

 

Animal Outing, 146600

 

I paired some bright colors for this card.  Truthfully though, they all came from the designer paper.  That is one of the many things I love about Stampin’ Up! and their designer paper.  The paper is so adorable and it takes you out of your normal comfort zone in terms of color.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

The only stamping is for the sentiment.  I just like the alligator and the little bird taking the center stage with the sentiment playing along with their silliness.  To give the sentiment a grounding point I pulled the Poppy Parade from the top and left hand birds.  I had to stop myself from trying to add something else onto the banner.  It was really hard to just leave it blank. LOL!!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for the last of my Blended Seasons cards.  If you have not grabbed up this bundle yet, it is almost gone.  Friday is the last day to order it.  Also, the Bonus Days Coupon goes away on Friday too.  For every $50.00 of merchandise you get a 5.00 coupon to use in September.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • The base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 folded in half
  • The first layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • The DSP layer is 5 1/8 X 3 7/8
  • The banner is 1 1/2 X 3 before being punched.
