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.

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!

Why I joined Stampin’ Up! And August Specials!

Why I joined Stampin’ Up!

30th logo

My papercrafting journey began 11 years ago when I first started (and fell in love with!) scrapbooking.  My Stampin’ Up!  journey began about 6 months later, when I first started using (and fell in love with!) Stampin’ Up! products.  I  joined Stampin’ Up! as an Independent Demonstrator about 2 ½ years ago, and what a great choice it was!  So why did I finally take the plunge and decide to become a Demonstrator rather than a customer?  Several reasons!

  1. The Ultimate Bundle Starter Kit and the opportunity to get $125 in product of my choice for $99, shipping included. What a deal!  Plus, a free Paper Pumpkin Kit and a 20% discount on all product purchases.
  2. Everything is coordinated for me! One of my biggest challenges has always been coordinating all the design elements, whether it was cardmaking, scrapbooking or a 3D project.  Stampin’ Up! solves that for me because everything is coordinated for me!  The cardstock, the “pretty papers,” inks, markers, dies, embellishments, stamps—everything!  It amazed me how much more quickly I was able to design and complete my projects when I didn’t have to spin my wheels trying to coordinate all the products I was using. Plus I get a discount on all my purchases!
  3. I immediately joined a community of stampers, absolutely one of the very best things about joining Stampin’ Up! I had been in Stampin’ Up! Stamp Clubs, but when I joined as a Demonstrator, it took the connection to a whole different level.  I quickly started my own Cards Classes and now have my own Team Members. It has really made this a joyful journey to have the opportunity to be with others who want to regularly get together for some fun stamping time.  So many new friends!

So why should you join Stampin’ Up!?  Why not?!?  Let’s get you started on your Stampin’ Up! journey today!  You can join by going to www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net and click the “Join” tab, or just contact me and we’ll set up a time to talk!

Lots of Happy Card Kit

Lots of Happy Card Kit

Lots of Happy Card Kit

The Lots of Happy Card Kit from the new Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog makes me “HAPPY!”  It’s an all inclusive Kit with everything you need to complete to make 20 cards, including stamps, ink, a stamp block, adhesives, embellishments, envelopes and FOUR watercolor pencils.  Watercoloring these cards was actually quickly done using Blender Pens.

Here’s a “group shot” of these gorgeous cards.  Truly beautiful!

As you can see, I used the stamp set that was included to decorate the envelopes, also.

The close up shots of each card:

Stampin’ Up also offers a complete set of Watercolor Pencils with even more colors, so I pulled out a couple of those for some alternate ideas.

I wanted a truer blue for the lavender, so I used the Pacific Point Watercolor Pencil.

I used the Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil and Wink of Stella on this card. See the shine on the flowers?  Just that little extra touch with Wink of Stella!

So much fun to complete this Kit!

Look at everything that’s included!
