Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Pretty Perennials Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Many of my cards this month will feature retiring stamp sets that I have not shown all the love that they have deserved over the past year. The April Simple Stamping Challenge is to create a card with stamps, ink and paper using retiring product so today's super cute and super simple card is perfect.
The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Flirty Flamingo cardstock. The first layer is Pear Pizzazz cardstock cut 4" x 5 1/4". The second layer is Basic White cut 3 3/8" x 5" and I created my own pattern paper. I randomly stamped flowers and leaf images from the Pretty Perennials Stamp Set in Bumblebee, Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink, and Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Give the #simplestamping challenge a try! And, give a go at creating your own pattern paper.  

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Handmade Spring Card Featuring Punch Art Techniques

Hello, my crafty friends. Since it is spring, and Easter is right around the corner, it is time for a break from the string of birthday cards. I will still use the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set for the sentiment. I am in love with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder so I want to use that on my card. I am going to use the Well Written Dies for a super cute blue bird. Check this out.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Pacific Point cardstock. The first layer is the Brights DSP in Pacific Point cut 4" x 5 1/4". The second layer build begins with a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock cut 3 3/4" x 5" and the bottom is covered with a 1 1/2" strip of Soft Suede cardstock embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D EF. The top ledge of the wall is a 3/4" strip of Basic White just a tad longer than 3 3/4" to extend over the edge on both sides. The sentiment is stamped in Pacific Point.

The bunny ears were created using the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch - super cute. The tall, leafy plants are from the Well Written Dies in Just Jade and a Small Bloom Punch flower in Daffodil Delight tucked right behind the wall. (The flower stamp is from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set/Bundle in the Jan-June Mini). The sun is created using the 1 1/2" Circle Punch and the sun's rays are made from a tiny star in the Stitched Stars Dies.

This was a fun card to make. I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Jar of Flowers Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. This month I have been featuring birthday cards and today is no different. I also decided to try another card for the March Simple Stamping Challenge. To refresh your memory, this month's challenge is to create a card with stamps, ink and paper, plus Designer Series Paper.
The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Coastal Cabana cardstock. The first layer is a piece of the Playing with Patterns DSP cut 3 3/4" x 5 1/4". The second layer is Coastal Cabana cut 3 1/4" x 4 5/8" and adhered at an angle. The flower arrangement and jar are stamped on Basic White cardstock, cut 2 3/4" x 4 3/8", using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. (The "odd" sizes for the mats were necessary due to the "height" of the flower image.)

Did you spot the technique I used on this card? I stamped the jar on a scrap piece from the Playing with Patterns DSP, fussy cut it to fit inside the outer edge of the image, and "paper pieced" it over the stamped image on the Basic White cardstock. I think the technique might have been easier to spot if I had not layered the sentiment over the top of the jar image - then you could have seen the different shades of Coastal Cabana on the pattern paper.

If you are careful to not color over the lines, you can use your Stampin' Write Markers on the flower image stamped with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Otherwise, you should use Stampin' Blends for coloring to eliminate the risk of the black ink bleeding into the colors. The marker colors I used were  Calypso Coral (or substitute with Terracotta Tile), Crushed Curry (or substitute with So Saffron), Pretty Peacock (or substitute with Shaded Spruce), Purple Posy (or substitute with Highland Heather).

Give the #simplestamping challenge a try! And, if you would like to try the paper piecing technique, choose any large, line image stamp from your collection.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

March Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the March Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sue Boerner's blog. Great project, Sue! Welcome one and all.

The theme for this month's blog hop is "happy birthday." Now I have been posting birthday cards the last couple of weeks here so today I am sharing this super cute card using the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set in a slightly familiar card design. Stick around for the details.

The card base is a top fold, landscape A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Calypso Coral cardstock. The tulips on the top half of the card are stamped on a Basic White cardstock strip, cut 2" x 5 1/4" using Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz ink. To create the brick wall, I ran this strip through "The Boss" (what I have been affectionately calling the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine!!) using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is stamped on a 1/2" strip of Basic White cardstock with a slim piece of Calypso Coral cardstock along the bottom edge. I hand cut the flagged end and wrapped the other end with Linen Thread.

The bottom panel is a pretty pattern strip from the Playing with Patterns 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, cut 2" x 5 1/4". Since I plan to use this card for this month's online workshop - and some crafters have not yet had an opportunity to purchase the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch - the 3 tulip clusters were stamped on scrap Basic White cardstock and trimmed to fit, approximately 1 1/4" x 1 3/4".

So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Terri Stewart.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Timeless Tulips Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. It has been a couple of months since I have participated in the Simple Stamping Challenge so let's give the March challenge a try with the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set. This month's challenge is to create a card with stamps, ink and paper, plus Designer Series Paper! Easy peasy.
#simplestamping

The card base is a top fold, landscape A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Magenta Madness cardstock. The tulips are stamped on Basic White cardstock, cut 3 3/4" x 5" using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the splatter image to slightly fill the color in the main flower and I used the blender pen to spread color on the flower bud and the leaves. 
The DSP strip is from the 2020-22 In Color DSP Assortment, cut 3/4" x 4". Actually, the DSP is a scrap from my swaps for next month's Stampin' Up convention, held via Zoom, but the piece is a perfect fit and perfectly fulfills the challenge!

Give the #simplestamping challenge a try!

REMINDER: I want to keep everyone motivated and crafting so this month I am giving away a Timeless Tulips stamp set. As I have offered for the last several months, for all orders of $25 or more using the February or March host code, I will send you the card kits for the March workshop (this month to be held on March 27 via Facebook Live on my business page). In addition, I will be picking 1 winner from those orders of $25 or more using the February or March host code (see March host code below or on the sidebar) for your own Timeless Tulips stamp set. (NOTE: If you place your order after the monthly workshop, you will receive the next month's workshop card kits - unless you let me know you really want the current month's card kits.)

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and Tulip Builder Punch

Hello, my crafty friends. Today I am reaching back to our crafting in March of 2020...back when we first started meeting virtually for classes. If you recall, I asked everyone to purchase the Timeless Tulips stamp set and Tulip Builder Punch so we could craft together - virtually. So dust off your stamp set and punch and let's try another card.

The card base is a side fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Bumblebee cardstock. The mat is Pear Pizzazz cardstock, cut 3 3/8" x 5". The DSP strip is from the 2020-22 In Color DSP Assortment, cut 1" x 5". The tulips are stamped on Basic White cardstock, die cut using the largest scalloped edge rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Don't you love, love, love the Bumblebee ribbon and the font of this birthday sentiment - beautiful!

I want to keep everyone motivated and crafting so this month I am giving away a Timeless Tulips stamp set. As I have offered for the last several months, for all orders of $25 or more using the February or March host code, I will send you the card kits for the March workshop (this month to be held on March 27 via Facebook Live on my business page). In addition, I will be picking 1 winner from those orders of $25 or more using the February or March host code (see March host code below or on the sidebar) for your own Timeless Tulips stamp set. (NOTE: If you place your order after the monthly workshop, you will receive the next month's workshop card kits - unless you let me know you really want the current month's card kits.)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Pattern Play Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Today I thought I would share a couple of cards based on my card design from earlier this month using the Playing with Patterns Suite (AC pp. 100-102).

The card base is a side fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Misty Moonlight. The mat is a 2 1/4" strip of a pretty pattern sheet from the Playing with Patterns 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, and a second 2 1/4" strip of the Misty Moonlight pattern sheet from the 2020-22 In Color Designer Series Paper Assortment. I covered the seam between the two different sheets of DSP with a 1" strip of Night of Navy. The "HBD" initials were cut using the Playful Alphabet Dies, and a second set of "HBD" initials were cut from a scrap of Pool Party cardstock - inlaid to create this fun element.

The sentiment is from the Pattern Play Stamp Set and I used the "sparkle" images in Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay in the background to coordinate with the pattern sheet.

This second card, based on my original card design in Crushed Curry, was the card that we made in the monthly FaceBook LIVE workshop. Since I sent out kits to everyone, I kept it simple, but it turned out so cute.

There are only a few more days of Sale-A-Bration. I would appreciate it if you would place your order using the February host code (below or on the sidebar). Any orders this month will receive the card kits for next month's workshop. PLEASE MAKE A NOTE: Normally, the workshops are the third Saturday of the month, but I need to move next month's workshop to March 27.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

February Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the February Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Annette McMillan's blog. Great project, Netty! Welcome one and all.

For this month's blog hop, we are all featuring Sale-A-Bration product in our projects. As you know, there is an awesome collection of stamp sets and paper to select from as your reward for purchases. Today I am mixing it up and have created this super cute card using three Sale-A-Bration products: Berry Blessings Stamp Set (SAB Level 2, pp. 14-15), Punch Party Stamp Set (SAB Hostess, p. 17) and Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (SAB Level 1, p. 7).

I was so excited to earn the Punch Party Stamp Set because there are three coordinating punches: Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch, Double Oval Punch, and the Heart Punch Pack. (After weeks of valentine's cards, I decided to give everyone a break from the hearts today!!) 

Tip: Double punch two of the images with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to create the squares!! Don't you love the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch!

The Berry Blessings Stamp Set and Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper coordinate with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle (Jan-Jun 21 MC, p.44, Item# 156214), however, I did not use the bundle on this card.

So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Maureen Rauchfuss.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Be sure to check out the Business News section below - there is lots of information and updates to share, including a discussion on free products from the Sale-A-Bration flyer with each $50 purchase. BUT, all good things must come to an end and these fantastic Sale-A-Bration products will no longer be available after February 28 so time is of the essence!!
