Detailed Dragonflies Card and a Last Chance Sale!

Marvelous March just flew by for me.  I got to spend time with all of my kids and grands and it was just wonderful for this Nana!

Detailed Dragonflies Card

The Dragonfly Dreams Stamps Set and coordinating Detailed Dragonflies Dies really make beautiful projects!  This is one of the cards we made at a recent Crafting on the Hill Team Meeting.  Fast and fabulous!dragonfly team meet card

This is a detail of the dragonfly.

dragonfly detail

The background is the dots from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set inked and stamped off in Sweet Sugarplum.  The base of the Dragonfly is stamped in Memento Ink.  The second of the two step Dragonfly is stamped in Fresh Fig.  The wings are also stamped in Berry Burst.  The Dragonfly was then cut out with the Big Shot using the coordinated Detailed Dragonflies Thinlits Dies Set.  Wink of Stella was used to add a little “bling” to the wings and the eyes and a rhinestone added the final touch.  One of my favorite things about using Stampin’ Up products is that everything is coordinated for you!

Look at all the lovely sentiments in this Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.

The coordinated Detailed Dragonflies Thinlits Dies Set makes creating this beautiful dragonfly so easy!

Southern Serenade

Southern Serenade

Southern Serenade Parade of Colors!

The Southern Serenade Stamps Set from the Occasions 2018 Catalog just sings to me!  Such a beautiful set and paired with the Stampin’ Blends it produces gorgeous projects.

serenade 3 w logo

 

This is colored with the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combos.  I adhered it to half of a Doily and the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack, mounted on a sheet of Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  I added a piece of the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon for just the right accent.  The sentiment is from the Southern Serenade Stamp Set, then cut out with a Stitched Shapes Framelit.

serenade 4 w logo

The Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Combo Set just makes the flowers pop!  I used Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock and paper from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  The sentiment is from the Petal Palette Stamps Set.  I used the Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon for a contrast.

welcome card with logo

I entered this card in an online challenge, and I won!!  Woohoo!  Pool Party is one of my favorite colors, so that’s what I used here, as well as the Color Theory Designer Series Paper.  I used the Banners For You Stamps and the coordinating Bunches of Banners Die Set for the sentiment.

serenade pink w logo

I thought the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack provided a great contrast with the Pink Pirouette.  I used the new Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add a little more texture.  Linen Thread is one of my favorite accents–so versatile!

 

Lovely lace and great sentiments really make this Southern Serenade Stamp Set a “not to missed” item to order!

Stampin’ Blends are incredible.  They easily make me look like an artist!  They’re available as a complete set, or you may purchase them singly or as a combo pack.  Such a great variety of colors! You really need to see, feel, touch them to see what beautiful projects they produce.

 

There’s an upcoming Class where you can do just that!

Birthday Memories Suite and February Events Schedule

One of my favorite Suites from the Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog is the Birthday Memories Suite.  Bright and cheerful, colorful and very retro.  Loved it from the first time I got to play with it!  With the cold, gloomy winter weather we’ve had so much of lately, I’ve begun to be drawn to our more colorful Suites and decided I had to create a card with this adorable little girl.

Birthday Memories Card

birthday girl with logo

One of the BEST things about Stampin’ Up is how everything is coordinated for you.  The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper is the background paper here.  The Birthday Girl, present and floral bouquet were all cut from the Designer Series Paper using the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies with the Big Shot.  The little girl  and the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon are both mounted on Pacific Point Cardstock, which is one of my very favorite Stampin’ Up colors.  The sentiment was stamped using the Birthday Delivery Stamps Set.  See how it’s all coordinated for you?!  Makes creating beautiful projects so much easier!

I must admit that I came across a picture a couple of days ago that inspired this card.  One of those “long ago” pictures!  Yep, that’s me.

Little Dixie

We had a Fun Folds Cards Class and made these cards using this same Suite.  See how bright and cheerful this set is?

bday fold card 3bday fold card 2

And here’s the GREAT thing–the stamps, dies and Designer Series Paper are all three available in a Bundle that saves you 10%.  Purchase this set through March 31st and you’ll get a FREE Sale-A-Bration Item of your choice!

Painted with Love Sampler and Card

Painted with Love Sampler and Card

What a winter we’ve had here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia!  Arctic cold temps (colder than Alaska!), snow and ice.  But I’ve begun my SPRING Countdown on my Facebook Page, which I’ve done for several years and now have requests for every year.  A fun way to look forward to spring!

But first…Valentine’s Day!!

Painted with Love Suite Sampler and Card

The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so elegant and gorgeous, I’ve loved working with it.  The whole “Love”ly Suite can be found in the NEW Occasions Catalog. I love samplers because they’re just something pretty to create and enjoy, as home decor or a gift.  It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, and have decided to offer a Class in February.  But today I really wanted to work with this Painted with Love Designer Series Paper to create a Valentine’s Sampler.

One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up products is that everything is coordinated for you, which helped inspire me in the design of the Sampler.

Love sampler with logo

I used an 8 X 8 Melon Mambo base.  The Whisper White squares are 2 1/4″.  I used 9 different patterns from the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper cut into 2″ squares.  The accents are a gold Metallic Foil Doily, as well as hearts cut from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies in gold foil, Sweet Sugarplum and Powder Pink.  The large gold foil hearts are the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.

I also created a coordinating card to go with it, using some of the same products on a different scale.  So easy when Stampin’ Up products are already coordinated for you!

love sampler card with logo

January Class Cards

Despite the weather, we were able to have the Quick and Easy Cards Classes last week and had a fun time creating some cards and a 3D project.

 

 

bloomin love bday card with logoheart box and card with logo

 

We used the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies to create a box decorated with the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Calypso Coral Cardstock was placed behind the die cut image, then the die cut heart was used on one of the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes.  You can fit four of these cute little cards in the box!

The Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set was used on the other card, stamped in Soft Suede Ink.  Strips of Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper provided the perfect background for this beautiful stamp. The sentiment is from the You’re So Inspiring Stamp Set in the new Occasions Catalog.

Pick a Pumpkin Bundle Cards and Stampin’ Blends

Pick a Pumpkin Bundle Cards and Stampin’ Blends

Pick a Pumpkin Bundle

For many years, Thanksgiving has been a favorite holiday.  Though we should have grateful hearts every day, I love taking a special day to take the time to express that gratitude while surrounded by the ones we love.  Oh, yes…and to eat the food for which we are so grateful!  Yummy!

I love, love decorating for Thanksgiving, too, using lots of pumpkins–real ones on the front steps (hoping the bear doesn’t get them!), pumpkin shaped candles, pumpkin placemats.  All of it!  So, naturally, I immediately fell in love with our Pick a Pumpkin Stamps and Dies Bundle in our Holiday Catalog.  Have you seen it yet?  Here are a couple of cards I made using the stamps and dies.

pumpkins peach bow w logo

The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is used for the background, the rectangle accent and the “fussy cut” pumpkins.  The large pumpkin and leaf dies are from the Pick a Pumpkin Dies Set.  The sentiment is from the Wood Words Stamps Set.

pumpkins w blue w logo

Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango Inks were used here with the Pick a Pumpkin Stamps and Dies coordinated set.  The sentiment is from the Painted Harvest Stamps Set, and the background is the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  A Crushed Curry Twine bow is the perfect accent!

Here’s the Pick a Pumpkin Stamps and Dies.  And it’s so versatile–those leaves could be used year round!

LOVE, LOVE THE NEW STAMPIN’ BLENDS!

This is my very first experience with alcohol markers, and it’s like a whole new artistic world has been opened to me!  They make creating beautiful projects so much easier.

eskimo w logo

This little Eskimo card was created using the Cookie Cutter Stamps and coordinated punch.  I used the Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Combo Packs to color his coat, gloves and boots.  The face was colored with the Ivory Blend and I used a touch of Calypso Coral light for the “rosy cheeks.”  Wink of Stella added to the “snow effect” on the igloo created with you Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then die cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  Such a cutie!

Summer in the South…

There’s nothing quite like the delights of Southern Summers!  I love the long days and warm nights, the sound of the katydids at night, watermelon and snapping fresh green beans on the front porch.  The best part of the summer for me has been visiting with the grands–ALL of them!  Being with them in TN and Maryland has sidetracked my blogs this summer, but what joy for this Nana!  A favorite part of the summer for the kiddos is….

Bike Rides!

At the Crafting on the Hill Summer Stampin’ Team Party last week, we made a card using the fantastically fun Bike Ride Bundle.  I got my first bike for my 9th birthday, and it was BLUE, so I had to make this one blue!

Bike ride with logo

  • I stamped the bike body, tires and rear mount in Pacific Point, one of my favorite Stampin’ Up colors.  Bike rims are stamped with So Saffron.
  • The handles, seat, and brake are stamped with So Saffron, but you could also use a So Saffron marker.
  • The basket is the two stamp baskets, both stamped in Early Espresso.  The base was stamped full strength, the second stamp was stamped off.
  • The flowers were stamped in Wild Wasabi, then colored with Calyspo Coral and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • The “road” and the banner are Crushed Curry from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • The sentiment is from the Birthday Delivery Stamps Set (one of my favorites!), stamped in Pacific Point.  I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut out Pacific Point Cardstock and the sentiment.
  • Adhere the strip of Color Theory DSP. Mount the tires on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use glue dots to attach the bike body and rear mount to the tires, then attach to the card base.  Adhere the basket, then the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • On each tire and the banner, I used coordinating Enamel Shapes.

Such a great summery card!

Here’s the Bundle I used:

Paper Pumpkin Alternate Ideas–And Watermelons!

The June Paper Pumpkin Kit was One in a Melon and it’s luscious!  It was my first experience stamping images of one of my favorite fruits.  Yummy!

Here are couple of the alternates I made:

June 17 PP Kit alternates

The July Paper Pumpkin Kit is Perfectly Picturesque and it makes some stunning cards.

I altered the mountains to look more like the beautiful mountains of North Georgia!
