Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Small Bloom Punch

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 the United States, United Kingdom and Australia! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog (great project, Sandra!). Welcome one and all.

This month we continue to focus on the fantastic, free products from the new Sale-A-Bration brochure. For my card, I am using the Small Bloom Punch. The Small Bloom Punch was a free product with a $100 purchase. However, when I placed my order last month, I had a "moment" and must have really wanted the Lily Impressions DSP more than the coordinating Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set. Hum. Now what? Time to improvise. I think you will love the versatility of this small bloom punch.
The card base is an A2 with the fold at the top (cut 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5). The first layer of the embellishment build is a 3 x 3 of the Blueberry Bushel from the 2018-20 In Color DSP, and the Whisper White layer is 2.5 x 2.5. Each flower is a build of two Small Bloom Punch flowers secured with a small dot of Tombow glue to hold them together and set upon a small strip of Call Me Clover. The centers are the Frosty Epoxy Droplets. A coordinating button with a tiny White Baker's Twine bow in the upper left-hand corner. A very small strip of Blueberry Bushel die cut with the long, scallop edge die from the Stitched Be Mine Dies is placed off center a smidge behind the embellishment build for an eye pleasing break from all that Lovely Lipstick!

The sentiments are from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set.
I think this card is super cute even without the stamped flower image. I will plan better next time. :)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my card. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Krissi Hannah.

Easy Handmade Card Featuring Painted Poppies Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. I am totally loving all the coordinating of the Painted Poppies Bundle and the Peaceful Moments Bundle! This week, however, I thought I would show you an easy handmade card using some basic stamping and coloring techniques and the Painted Poppies Stamp Set (no dies).
Painted Poppies Stamp Set
The card base is Sahara Sand Cardstock and the poppies are stamped using the Sahara Sand ink. This is called a monochromatic color scheme. The center row of poppies is one stamp, stamped twice using the masking technique, to create a continuing row of the poppies. I just used a scrap piece of copier paper to cover the first image of poppies to prevent overlapping. 

Like last week's project, I chose to make a bow from the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon -- it was simple to color the ribbon to match my card using the Poppy Parade Stampin' Blend.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my Painted Poppies card. Please leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can find you and see your creations.

January Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project

Hello, my crafty friends. This week, as I was putting together some of the cute mini cards from the January Paper Pumpkin kit, I thought it would be fun to come up with a full-sized card. This month's PP kit coordinates with the Heartfelt Stamp Set/Bundle (MC p. 10).
The card base is Whisper White Cardstock, then a layer of Mint Macaron (5.25" x 4") stamped with the Handwritten Background stamp in coordinating Mint Macaron classic ink (all not part of the PP kit). The embellishment build is one of the mini cards cut in half (3" x3") and the Mint Macaron mini card front becomes the first layer; the second layer is a 2.25" square of Mint Macaron (not part of the PP kit); and the third layer is the remaining white piece of the mini card stamped with the cute, flowery background stamp from the included I'll Bee Yours Photopolymer Stamp Set, cut down to 2.25" square.

The Rococo Rose flowery heart is one of the die cut images in the PP kit, and the Mint Macaron heart is another stamp included in the I'll Bee Yours Photopolymer Stamp set, punched with the solid heart from the heart punch pack. 

I chose to make a bow from the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon instead of the included baker's twine (I cannot get enough of this ribbon - I LOVE IT!!). I layered 2 of the purple sequins - one on top of the other - and one of the die cut bee images, both from the PP kit. This completes the card perfectly.

Easy Handmade Card Featuring the Little Ladybug Hostess Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Last week was a super cute, handmade card, cased from the new Sale-A-Bration brochure, showcasing the Little Ladybug Stamp Set. Click HERE if you missed it. This stamp set is just so adorable, I thought I would share another card, very similar with small changes.
The base is Whisper White Cardstock, a layer of Whisper White dry embossed with the Layer Leaves 3D Embossing Folder (5" x 3.75") and a layer of the 2018-20 In-Color Designer Series Paper "DSP" (4" x 3"). This time the flower is stamped and die cut using the Stitched Rectangle die and partially fussy cut. The ladybug is fussy cut. Stampin' Blends was my choice for coloring. The ladybug is popped up with a couple of dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped with Grapefruit Grove ink and framed with a slightly larger Classic Label. I added a coordinating button with a Whisper White Baker's Twine bow.

The Little Ladybug Stamp Set is free with a qualifying party or customer order during the Sale-A-Bration which runs through March 31.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my Little Ladybug card and agree that this stamp set is very versatile. Please leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can find you and see your creations.

Casing the Catalog Featuring the Little Ladybug Hostess Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. This week I thought it might be fun to CASE a card from the new Sale-A-Bration brochure. If you are not sure, CASE is shorthand for Copy and Share Everything. The Little Ladybug Stamp Set is super adorable so I thought the example on page 17 would be fun to work with.
The base is Whisper White Cardstock, a layer of Whisper White dry embossed with the Layer Leaves 3D Embossing Folder (5" x 3.75") and a layer of the 2018-20 In-Color Designer Series Paper "DSP" (4" x 3"). I fussy cut the ladybug and the flower. They are colored using Stampin' Blends. The ladybug is popped up with a couple of dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped with Grapefruit Grove ink, framed with a slightly larger piece of coordinating cardstock and also popped up with a couple of dimensionals.

The Little Ladybug Stamp Set is free with a qualifying party or customer order during Sale-A-Bration which runs through March 31 (although how could you wait that long?).

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my CASE card. I tried to demonstrate the versatility of any design. Please leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the January Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States, United Kingdom and Australia! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog. Welcome one and all.

This month we are focusing on the great products from the new Sale-A-Bration brochure. For this card, I am using Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set and the coordinating Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (12 x 12). I think you will love the reversible images in this stamp set.
Simple Stamping Greeting Card
I tried and tried to write out step-by-step instructions on the cuts for this background, however, I think it might be easier with photos! The standard measurement for the first layer of a portrait card is 4" x 5 1/4". This pattern requires a 1/8" space between the parts - so START with a 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" layer of DSP instead. Image #1 - Cut one strip at 1 1/2" (remaining is 2 3/8") and then cut those two strips at 3" (remaining is 2 1/8"). Image #2 - Lay the pieces out as originally cut. Image #3 - Turn over two opposite corners. (I hope the pictures help make this simpler than it sounds!!)
Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my card. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.

ADD THIS TO YOUR TUESDAY TO DO LIST

#1 - Check for new products added to the Clearance Rack. I still cannot believe that The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley is still on the Clearance Rack, available for purchase at 15% off (while supplies last). If you need more information on Stampin' Up!'s product medley, message me for the flyer showing everything that is included. PLUS, that beautiful Rich Razzleberry 1/4" (6.4 mm) Velvet Ribbon and the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit. (You know, if you purchased all three of these products, you would earn a FREE SAB product!) Do not delay in placing your order. 

NEW MINI CATALOG
(January 3 - June 2, 2020)

If you placed an order from me over the past year, you likely have already received a copy of the new 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Spring Occasions Catalog) in the mail. If you did not receive one, please contact me immediately and let's fix that. If you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send you a copy of your very own. Chock full of inspiration and ideas. 

As always, if you have any questions, or need assistance, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)
