Heaps of Happiness and more

I apologize for being so late posting today.  It has been a crazy morning.  But it has allowed me to update my blog with the DSP Sale Flyer!  WooHoo!  This is one of my favorite times of the year.  It is the very popular Buy 3, and Get 1 Free on Select Designer Series Paper.  The flyer is at the end of the post so you can see which ones to choose from.  My September Host Code is at the bottom as well.

Another AWESOME bit of news is tomorrow is the beginning of the Holiday Catalog!  I cannot wait for you to be able to order these wonderful items.  I want it all!!

Now on to today’s project.  It is a Happy card, and great for showers of any kind.

 

I love this stamp set!  It is the Birthday Goodness set that has donuts and macarons.  What is not to LOVE??  I wanted to do a variety of colors because I love the different flavors of macarons.  However, the choice of paper made me settle on just two.

I chose the Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow to go with the Daffodil Delight roses.  The designer series paper is a reverse side of one of the Magnolia Lane DSP.

The adorable ribbon combo is actually a Ribbon Combo (HaHa!) from the Magnolia Suite of products.  It is Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo and is the great linen like ribbon with a Mossy Meadow Baker’s Twine to match.

Thank you for checking in today.  Be sure and check out the DSP Sale the starts tomorrow and add it to your list from the Holiday Catalog.  If you do not have a Holiday  Catalog and would like one, please contact me and I will get one to you.

Love And Joy

I hope you love the Woven Heirlooms suite of products as much as I do.  Partly because I think it is a fabulous suite.  And partly because I have another card from it to share with you today.  This will be the last of my favorite piece of the DSP, because I am out of it.  It is on my next order list though!!

 

As I have said before, this is an awesome set but additionally it has made me fall in love with the Seaside Spray InColor.  It is a beautiful blue with just a hint of a purple, at least in my opinion.  Having used it so much with the DSP, it has become a fast favorite.  To top that off, Stampin’ Up! added a Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon to the Holiday Catalog.  WooHoo!!!  As you can see from the photo, it has a touch of shimmer to it.

Since I love the designer series paper so much, and the added beauty of the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon, I had to have an equally gorgeous sentiment.  I love this sentiment, which is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set .  I believe it is great for a birthday or wedding, and maybe other occasions.  And I love the fonts used in the sentiment as well.  To showcase the sentiment I looked through my dies and found the Stitched Labels Die.  The sentiment fit perfectly and the die really stands out on the card.  Yay!!

Thank you so much for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.  Also, please remember that the Stampin’ Up! Join Promotion is coming to an end on Saturday.  I truly love being a demonstrator, I love Stampin’ Up! products, and most of all I love all of the friendships I have made because of it.  I would be happy to answer any questions you have if you are thinking about becoming a demonstrator.  It was one of the best decisions I have ever made!  And I would love to have you join my team.

Botanical CASE Catalog

Today is another of the Royal Challenge cards I made last week.  This one is a CASE of the catalog.  I chose to use the catalog card as the idea, but used everything different than they used.  A CASE can be just the idea, layout, or a pretty much copy.  I love that we SHARE EVERYTHING!

 

This is a CASE from page 41 of the Annual Catalog.  When I saw the DSP behind the cut out, I realized I had done a similar one recently.  But I love the look and I just happened to be playing with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  I knew I had to use it.  This gorgeous paper is simply above and beyond all the other beautiful paper Stampin’ Up! carries.

For my card, I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelit Dies and cut out Daffodil Delight.  I then stamped on the “frame” with Daffodil Delight Ink and a stamp from Botanical Bliss stamp set.  I also die cut the Garden Green stems using the Botanical Tags Dies.  The sentiment and flower is from Botanical Bliss as well.  It is stamped and then punched with the Darling Label punch.  I love this almost square punch.  It is the only one that is not more oval shaped!

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I will have another new project to share with you tomorrow.

Wishes For You

I have been using the well loved retiring products for a while with only a sneak peek of new items.  Today I have another new suite to share.  And the paper is AWESOME!!  I know, I tend to love all the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper.  But if you have not seen the Perennial Essence DSP, be prepared to be in awe!  The piece I am showing today is beautiful but not close to the prettiest of the pack.

 

Stampin' Up!, Floral Essence, Perennial Essence DSP, Perennial Essence Vellum, Leaf Punch, Jackie Beers

I wish I could paint like this DSP.  It is a beautiful watercolor.  You almost hate to cover it up with anything.  I was sweating when I stamped the sentiment onto the DSP.  I love the unexpectedness of that.  But I am always saying a small prayer to not mess it up!

The flower is from the Floral Essence stamp set.  I stamped it and colored with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Combo.  It is fussy cut with my sharp Paper Snips.  The vellum leaves are just perfect for the softness of the DSP I believe.  This suite of products has , not only the Perennial Essence DSP, but Perennial Essence Vellum!  A definite WOW!  There are several soft shades of vellum that match the DSP.  This is definitely a suite where “I Want It All!”.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you like this card.  It is a bit different than my usual cards.

Wedding Wishes

Before I get started on today’s post I wanted to give you a heads up!  I am going to be traveling after today.  I will not return until the end of the month.  Woohoo for me!  A big vacation / girl trip!!  But that means that I will not have new blog postings.  I just have not had the time to plan ahead.  I apologize and I hope you will come back the end of the month when I return.

So for today’s card I have another card from the awesome set Wishing You Well.  I really do love this set. The card I am sharing today is one I gave for a wedding over the weekend.  What better use of “Wishing You Well” than for a bride and groom.

 

Wishing You Well, 147864

 

I think of this as a simple elegance.  I hope you do as well.  I utilized the Subtle Textures Embossing folder on the So Safron layer.  The flowers are stamped in Crushed Curry to stand out more.  I then topped each one with a small pearl.

Even though in the picture it looks almost black, the dark layer is Blackberry Bliss which matches the bow.  That bow is my favorite stamp in the entire Stampin’ Up! inventory I believe. 🙂

Thank you for visiting today.  I apologize for going to be absent for a little over two weeks.  I will post some photos when I return.

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! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
