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!

Delightful Daisy Designer Series Papers and Stamps Set

daisy dsp card w logo

The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Papers has gorgeous designs that have lots of spring colors that coordinate with it.  This card has the Designer Series Paper mounted on Wisteria Wonder.  The sentiment and flower are from the Daisy Delight stamp set stamped in Flirty Flamingo.watercolor daisy w logo

The daisy stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped twice in Berry Burst, then punched with Daisy Punch. A Clear Faceted Gem is the perfect touch for the center.  I used Berry Burst Ink to watercolor on a piece of the Watercolor Paper, then mounted it on Berry Burst Cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

This is one of the cards we made in the Spring Into Stamping Class this week.  The Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper made this card so quick and easy!  A strip of the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon set the card off perfectly!

Fun with the Petal Passion Suite

Fun with the Petal Passion Suite

At the February Quick and Easy Cards Class, we used the Petal Passion Suite to create 6 beautiful cards.

Petal Passion Suite Designer Series Paper

 

The Petal Passion Designer Series Paper is gorgeous, but it becomes even more versatile when you color it!

petal palette DSP coloring w logo

At the Cards Class, we used the technique on the left, a Sponge Brayer and Stampin’ Ink.  This piece of the Petal Passion Paper was inked with the Pool Party Stampin’ Ink Pad.  The Sponge Brayer makes so easy!  I put alcohol and a Stampin’ Up Ink Refill in the Stampin’ Up Stampin’ Spritzer, then sprayed the middle piece.  On the third piece, I used the Stampin’ Up Sponge Dauber and picked up the color from the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Up Ink Pad to daub it on the Petal Passion paper.  Amazingly simple to create so many different looks!

Petal palette blends w logo

Look at the stellar results from using the Stampin’ Blends to color it!  I truly love this Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.  And the Blends make even me look like an artist!

Here is a list of the Stampin’ Up Products used in these projects:

Sponge Brayer    Item 141714    $8

Sponge Dauber   Item 133773   $5

Stampin’ Spritzer  Item 126185  $3

Stampin’ Blends  $4.50 each or $9 Combo Pack

Stampin’ Ink Pads  $6.50 each

We made 3 cards in Class using the Petal Passion Suite.

On this one we used the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Love the Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock paired with the Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Ink.  The Petals & More Thinlits Dies were used to cut out the “flyaway” leaves and the sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set.

petal palette pink card w logo

We also made 2 other cards using this fabulous Suite.

petal palette class cards

I just love, love this little bird, which is stamped here in Marina Mist, but it’s also adorable stamped in pink or yellow or black, and can easily be colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  The flowers are from the Petal Palette Stamps, stamped in Berry Burst.  So versatile!!

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!

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.

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.

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!
