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!

Cute piggies!

 

Here’s a smile for the day!

Crafting on the Hill Team Member, Elizabeth Adams, absolutely fell in love with the This Little Piggy Stamp Set when we got a sneak peek at OnStage Savannah.  Here’s one of the adorable cards she’s crafted with it:

piggy

Isn’t it adorable?  Of course, so many of us immediately thought of a “certain” precious children’s story, or of a “certain” movie about a very precocious little pig.   She stamped the pig image on watercolor paper, then cut out that and a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Too, too cute!

Here’s the This Little Piggy Stamp Set and you can order it here.

Savoring the last of Summer and Planning for Fall

Seems like everyone has a favorite season, and mine is most definitely summer, with spring coming in a close second.  I love being warm!  But I love that we live in a place where we get to experience seasonal weather for all four seasons.  And fall is absolutely spectacular here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia!

So because it’s still Summertime, we played with water in the August Quick and Easy Cards Class.

Wonderful Ways with Watercolor

We made a watercolor card using Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Sweet Sugarplum Classic Ink Pads and the Aqua Painters on Shimmery White Cardstock.   The Daisy and sentiment are stamped in Berry Burst and the Shimmery White Cardstock is mounted on Berry Burst Cardstock.

One of the versatile uses of the Stampin’ Up Classic Ink Pads is that you can press down on the closed Ink Pad and put ink on the lid, so that when you open it, you just pick up the color from the lid with the Aqua Painter.  You can also use a Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist the paper with water before watercoloring.  So many different options, it’s fun to experiment and find what works best for you! The inks were layered on the paper, with Sweet Sugarplum across the top, then Berry Burst, then Fresh Fig, constantly blending them.

The Shimmery White Paper is so easy to use for watercoloring, and is a slightly different texture from our Watercolor Paper.  Once I got started, I just had to create some more watercolor cards, since it was just too fun!

watercolor daisy w logo

The stamp sets were the Delightful Daisy and Colorful Seasons and the punch is the Daisy Punch finished off with a Faceted Gem.  Just love the cool summery colors on this card!

I also wanted to use the High Tide Stamp Set to create a watercolor card, appropriately!

watercolor seaside w logo

For this card, I used Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist combo and mounted the Shimmery White Cardstock on Marina Mist Cardstock.  I liked the more natural color of Crumb Cake Cardstock for the card base.

And Fall is most certainly coming, so I used leaves from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to create my first autumn card of the season.  I used a Stitched Shapes Framelit to cut out the sentiment, then added some Metallic Accents sequins and a linen thread bow to complete it.

watercolor leaves w logo

Then I decided I HAD to do just one more card with the Delightful Daisy Bundle!

daisy dsp card w logo

I just LOVE this Designer Series Paper!  It’s just SO easy to use to make a beautiful card quickly.  This daisy and sentiment were stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the Designer Series Paper is mounted on Wisteria Wonder Cardstock.  The Thick White Twine Bow completed the look perfectly!

Here’s the Daisy Delight Photopolymer Bundle with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and the Daisy Punch.  Just click on the image for more info.

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.

July 17 pp kit tulips

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

July 17 pp kit mountains

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