Humming Along and Home to Roost

Humming Along and Home to Roost

Even in the Deep South, it can get downright cold in January.  Since I love Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends and Watercolor Pencils, what better way to while away the long winter days than color!  The Humming Along Cling Stamp Set and the Sale-A-Bration Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set were the perfect stamps for my projects.

HUMMING ALONG CLING STAMP SET

This was one of the stamp sets that was demonstrated at OnStage Orlando in November, and I loved it at first sight.  There’s a beautiful flower, a hummingbird (we love hummers!) and sentiments to complete the project.

I stamped the hummingbird in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, the colored it with Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  I used a strip of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and the sentiment is from the Humming Along Cling Stamp Set, stamped in Memento.

hummingbird 2 w logo

I used the Stampin’ Up! Shimmery White Cardstock for this one, since it adds just a touch of shimmer.  The hummingbird is stamped in StazOn Ink, then colored with Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter.  The Red Rhinestones were the extra touch of bling I wanted.  The Stitched Labels Framelits Die gave a touch of texture to the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock base.

Shimmery White Cardstock, stamped with StazOn Ink then colored with our Watercolor Pencils.  I also used the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and the Everyday Label Punch for the sentiment from the Humming Along Stamp Set.

But there’s also a gorgeous flower with this stamp set!  This is one of Stampin’ Up’s new Cling Stamp Sets, found in the Occasions Catalog.  Three great sentiments, too.

 

For these two flower images, I used Memento Ink, then the Watercolor Pencils, and the Blender Pen.   The blue flower is Pacific Point and the pink flower is Flirty Flamingo.  I used the light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blend to add contrast around the flowers and make them pop.

The Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper is the perfect background!

I stamped the flower in Versamark on the Pear Pizzaz Cardstock.

Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set

One of my favorite Sale-A-Bration Items is the Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set.  This stamp set is one of the FREE Items you can choose with any $50 Product Order.  Look at the great sentiments!

I used Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Paper for these,  stamped the images in StazOn Ink, then used the Watercolor Pencils and the AquaPainter to color them.

For these I used Whisper White or Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock, stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, the colored with Stampin’ Blends.    I used the Stitched Labels Framelits, and the Pinewood Planks and Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.

One of the items in the new Occasions Catalog that I used is the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  One of my VERY favorites that is already getting a lot of use!

Lots and lots of Framelits in this incredibly versatile set!

Garden Impressions One Sheet Wonder Cards

Garden Impressions One Sheet Wonder Cards

What a wonderful summer it’s been for the Stewart house!  Lots of times with grands and kids equals pure bliss!  One of the things I love about spring and summer (and even fall) is all the flowers that are blooming.  The Abstract Impressions Suite has coordinating floral stamps and floral dies, and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper coordinated beautifully to help create some beautiful projects.

Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper

I decided I wanted to do a One Sheet Wonder Class using the 6 X 6 Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.  I was inspired by the template and card designs of Rebecca Urban, another talented Stampin’ Up Demonstrator.  Here are the cards we made in this fun class.

one sheet wonder Garden Impressions

This paper was just perfect for this Class to show how you can stretch our Stampin’ Up Designer Series Papers and get more bang for your buck!  I used Soft Sea Foam and Calypso Coral Cardstock and Stampin’ Inks.  The sentiments are from the Ribbon of Courage and the Beautiful Day Stamp Sets.  So quick and easy!!  Next I want to try a 12 X 12 One Sheet Wonder Class, and I’m sure the new Christmas Designer Series Papers will inspire me.

The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is just one the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Select Designer Series Paper Sale.  This sale ENDS July 31st, so now’s the time to place your order!  Go to my online store at http://www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net to see all the “pretty papers” that are on sale, or see my July 3rd post for pictures of them.  Either way, NOW is the time to shop!

“You Can Make It” Beautiful Day Bundle

One of the fantastic new things added in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog is the “You Can Make It” Project Ideas that you can purchase a Bundle.  What a fabulous idea!  One Item number to purchase everything you need to make the project.  I decided I really wanted to play with the Beautiful Day Stamps Set and make a set of the cards.

Beautiful Day Craft Project

I stamped the images with the Memento Ink Pad, then colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I didn’t want to stop!

I started with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Combo, then decided to also use the Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos, also. Bright and colorful and a very quick project.

beautiful day butterflies

The flower stamped called out to me, too, so I colored those in Calypso Coral and Lovely Lipstick.   I used Old Olive for the leaves and Daffodil Delight Dark for the flower centers.  Aren’t they just lovely?  And remarkably quick to create such beautiful projects!

beautiful day flowers

Here’s what’s included in the Beautiful Day Cards Supplies Set, Item 149042.  Note cards and envelopes, Beautiful Day Stamp Set, Stampin’ Block, Ink, Stampin’ Blends and twine.  Fun!

Lovely As a Tree Masculine Card

June is a special month around our house, since we celebrate both our Anniversary and my husband’s birthday.  Lots of celebration time!  I decided to use the classic Lovely As a Tree stamp set to create a special card for my guy’s birthday.

SPECIAL CARD FOR MY SPECIAL GUY!

Alvin bday card 18

I really love the combination of blue and brown, so I used Pool Party and Early Espresso.  The Lovely As a Tree Stamp Set is so versatile and can be used for any season.  Great for masculine or fall projects.

The Hardwood background stamp gave it the rustic look I wanted, inked with Early Espresso and using my Stamparatus.  Best stamping tool ever!

The “sploosh” stamp is from Love What You Do, stamped off in Pool Party.  Thankfully, he really liked it!

STAMPARATUS–ONE OF THE BEST TOOLS EVER!

If you haven’t been introduced to this incredible to new stamping tool yet, you need to use it for yourself!  Funny name for a FABULOUS tool!

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?

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!

The new Painted with Love Suite is just stunning, with lots of “bling” to it!  And it’s just one of the new products in this Occasions Catalog.  We’ll be using this gorgeous Painted with Love Designer Series Paper in next week’s Quick and Easy Cards Class to make a special little box.  Fun!  All customers will be receiving copies of the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  But if you just can’t wait, check out the PDF online version of the Occasions Catalog here and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure here.

 

One of the major harbinger’s of spring, of course, is daffodils, so I was absolutely thrilled to see Stampin’ Up’s new You’re So Inspiring Stamp Set–with daffodils!! An added feature is all of the sentiments included with this stamp set.  So many possibilities!!

 

The daffodils just pop when colored using the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

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:

Bike Ride Photopolymer Bundle

Item 145314

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.

July 17 pp kit tulips

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

I used the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper–really liked how the colors coordinated.
