Love My Lavender!

HEMR9526 (1)

When I first saw the Sale-a-Bration catalog, I knew I had to earn the Lots of Lavender set right away!  I love the soft blossoms and that it’s photopolymer!  It makes 2 step stamping so much easier! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and used it for my Quarterly gathering!

I used Perfect Plum for my card base, Petal Passion DSP, and Silver Foil for the side accents.  I already have gone through one of the Silver Baker’s Twin!  So fun!

There is Wink of Stella Clear on the blossoms too!  When I first saw the Classic Label punch, it didn’t wow me.  But I use it all the time!  I love it now!

Don’t forget about the FREE Creative Class to Go this month!  Just purchase the Waterfront set, Wood Designs DSP pack, and Wink of Stella Clear! (I want you to see how addictive it is!!) For more information, go to the February 2018 Post! Watch the YouTube video showing what you get for FREE:Contents of Creative Kit to Go

Here is a sneak peek of one of the cards!!!

Heartfelt Thanks

MUIW9720 (1)

I love a FREE stamp set, don’t you?  The Heartfelt Blooms is one of the many choices that are in this year’s Sale-a-bration catalog!  I just love the details in the image!  I tried it with black, but I really enjoyed how the Smoky Slate ink turned out!  This is for my Sweet & Simple class tonight!

Did you notice the cute dry embossed image?  It’s part of the Petal Passion suite on page 22-23 of the Occasions catalog!  It is a smaller embossing folder and it has 2 in the Petal Pair package!

I wanted to add ribbon, but really didn’t want to distract away from the main statement image.  I just used the Layering Ovals to cut out the Thank You that also is part of the Heartfelt Blooms set!

This is going to be a card for this month’s club too!  I just love how he’s throwing confetti in the air!  I just used the marker to stamp technique to have more than one color on the stamp!  And the new Scattered Sequins Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing folder is just too cute!!

I did use Wink of Stella on the confetti and his party hat!  He just makes me smile!

Snowflake Layers

I have 3 stamp clubs and one of the items is always a technique!  I give each member when they join a little journal book for them to place a sample and a type up of how we created it.  That way they can look back and recreate!

This one I haven’t done in a while and I was inspired by a color combo on Pinterest.  So easy to do too!

  1. Cut a regular card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″  (fold in half) and a light neutral at 5 1/4 x 4″
  2. I then cut another piece the same color as the card base at 3 2/8″ x 4 1/2″; the same neutral was cut to 4 1/4 x 2″
  3. Next I cut the last piece in the same base card color to 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″; neutral is 2 x 3 1/4″
  4. Take all your neutrals and layer them on top of each other.  I used dotto to keep them from moving.  Don’t worry about white spaces when you stamp.  Randomly stamp your pattern.  I started with the biggest to the smallest stamp.
  5. Once your are satisfied, you can attach each layer and then pop up with dimensionals!  Decorate as desired!

Painted Fall Flowers

JVHL4014

I LOVE this bundle!  I have heard that the Painted Harvest Bundle has been our top seller from the Holiday Catalog!  Do you need a copy mailed to you?  Let me know!

I made this one for our monthly club.  I stamped the smaller of the sunflowers with Pumpkin Pie and then followed it with Crushed Curry for the bigger flower.  The center is Chocolate Chip and Wink of Stella.  I also used Old Olive ink to stamp off the filler leaf stamp and used full strength ink for the leaf detail stamp. Next, I used a sponge with Early Espresso to distress the edges of the card stock and DSP.  To add depth and texture, I added dimensionals and linen thread.

The color combinations with this set are endless!  I have seen so beautiful cards and boxes made with this set!

World Card Making Day is coming!  To help celebrate, Stampin’ Up! has a 2 promotions!

Stunning Sunflowers

Painted Harvest 1

When I saw the preview of the Holiday Catalog, the Painted Harvest just called my name! Of course it was first on my list when we could pre-order (one of the many perks of being a demo!) from the catalog this month!  I still want to play with color combinations-and I have seen some gorgeous ones on the blogosphere!

This one will be a card for my Sweet & Simple card class on Tuesday, August 29th! (if you are local, come join us!  Just RSVP 7pm-8:30pm)

To make this card, I used Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight for the two yellow colors.  This set is a 2 step stamp set that makes your cards pop!  I aimed for lining up the center with the 2nd stamp.  It doesn’t matter which one goes first. I then used Garden Green and the more water colored fern stamp to make the background.  Next, I followed up with Chocolate Chip for the center and used Wink of Stella (I really need help….) for the centers! I thought a textured background piece was perfect! So I chose the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder.  I added some distressing with a sponge and lightly brushed it across with Chocolate Chip ink.

Painted Harvest 2

The Painted Harvest come in a bundle option that includes a Leaf Punch.  It’s pretty darn cute to add a quick accent to your card!  To finish it off, I added some Linen Thread and the sentiment.  All done!

September 1st is the day customers can get this beautiful set!  Need a Holiday Catalog?  Let me know, I can drop one in the mail to you!
