Hugs !

I have spent the weekend rearranging my craft space and incorporating the NEW Stampin’ Up! products from my pre-order.  Oh My!!  I am in trouble because I want it all.  I have added a new banner at the bottom of the narrative portion of this post. It is the NEW  Share What You Love Suite of products.  I may have said it, or thought it before, but this is my all time favorite suite that SU has ever created.  By clicking on that picture you will go to my online store and can view all of the products.  There are three different tiers of products you can order, as well as some Ala Carte items.  You get to get a touch of the Demonstrator Perk of ordering before the catalog is live!  But I hope you will check out my card first……..

 

Abstract Impressions, 147513

The stamp set I used is Abstract Impressions, and it is a beautiful Must Have stamp set.  But the star of this card is the gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This flower pattern is probably my favorite of the pack.  Then when I was looking for a color to back the sentiment layer with, I noticed the other side of this sheet and new it was perfect.  I really like the double sided DSP SU always has!

The colors in the DSP are beautiful . If you are wondering about the base color of the card.  It is the new Petal Pink.  Another winner in the new Color Revamp.  It is , at least to me, a more soft peachy pink look.  I believe it pairs wonderfully with the returned Mint Macaron as well.

To further show that SU is really On Trend with the new colors, I was reading the latest HGTV Magazine Friday.  It is all about painting and color.  All of the SU colors, especially the newer ones, are front and center in the magazine!  I was so impressed and pleased.

I hope you are as excited as I am about the new catalog and all of the new products and colors.  Again, if  you do not currently have a SU Demonstrator , I would love to work with you.  And it is always a great time to become a demonstrator.  You can even add a lot of the new products to your starter kit!!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today!  I hope you will return tomorrow and Wednesday is the InKing Royalty Blog Hop.

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.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I have a list of everything I used in the Supply List at the bottom of the page.

Sweet Thoughts

Friendships Sweetest Thoughts is a perfect springtime stamp set.  I love it and will miss it at the end of next month.  Today I have paired it with the Fresh Floral DSP that includes the current In Color Family of colors.

 

Friendships Sweetest Thoughts, 145826

 

 

I believe the DSP pairs perfectly with the little flower cart.  I have mixed my reds in this.  I used Berry Burst Card stock and DSP, Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend, and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend for the bird.  Who knew it would all mesh pretty well???

The cart is stamped and colored with the Stampin’ Blends and then cut out using the Layering Ovals Framelits.  Instead of placing it under an oval cut into the DSP, I decided just to layer it on top.  Without a background layer, the single layer lays flat enough that it appears to be underneath.  A win for quick and not having to measure to find the center!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I have included all of the products used at the bottom of the page.  Remember the Retiring Lists.  The stamp set and DSP are on there.

I Told You

I have quite a bit of different textures going on in today’s card.  The idea continued to evolve as I was putting it together and I like the unusualness of the outcome.  I hope you will as well.

 

Message In A Bottle, 143707

 

 

There is quite a lot of Foil happening on the card.  I have used the Foil Frenzy DSP along with a layer of Silver Foil card stock.   Not finished there, I added Copper and Silver embossing, and finished with Copper and Silver thread under the bottle layer.   The photo really does not do it justice.  So here is a close up section.

 

Message In A Bottle, 143707

 

From this photo you can see that I embossed the bottle in Silver.  I then embossed the love notes in Copper.  The background of the bottle is Pool Party Light Stampin’ Blend.  The foil layer is Silver Foil Card stock..  The Foil Frenzy DSP is the Pool Party dotted one.  And the sentiment is embossed with Copper and mounted on a Silver strip.  To finish my metallic thread…… (a play on words there!)  I added the Silver and Copper Thread behind the bottle layer.

With all of the metallic included here, I still like it and the simple bottle now really pops.   I hope you like it too.  The Message In A Bottle set and the Foil Frenzy DSP are both on the Retiring List.  I truly love the Foil Frenzy paper!  It is a perfect weight for quite a few different types of projects.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate your support and comments.

You’ve Got This 2

For the second card using the You’ve Got This stamp set, I used almost the same products plus some DSP.  I added the Delightful Daisy DSP, another favorite.  It works perfectly with both the Peekaboo Peach, and Night of Navy (yesterday was Dapper Denim).

 

You’ve Got This, 139575

 

When I use DSP, I like to put a layer between it and the base layer.  I don’t want it to fade into the base.  Instead of Dapper Denim, I went with Night of Navy due to the little pieces of it in the floral DSP.  Other than that, I used the same inks and ribbon.  I left off the glitter dots from yesterday.  I think the bow is more than enough for the decoration.  As I said yesterday, this ribbon is a dream to work with.  My bling for this card is that I went over the entire flower with Clear Wink of Stella.  In person it adds quite a bit of shimmer.

I hope you like today’s card.  It has more layers and a bit different layout.  I hope I have I have given you pause in considering some of these retiring items.  Please place your orders soon to insure that you get the items you want.  You can click on any of the items and be taken directly to my online store, or click on the Shop button at the top of the page.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Tomorrow I will be showcasing a different stamp set.  So please check it out.
