Time to Celebrate - Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons

  We're back at Fab Friday with a new challenge today!  It's colors this time.  I have to be honest that these really stumped me!

  I pulled out a punch of stamp sets and tried to get something that I thought did the colors justice.  Nothing seemed to work so I looked to my dies for some inspiration.  I came upon the Seasonal Layers dies which I haven't used in a while and that little Adirondack chair seemed to fit these colors so I went with it.

  There is very little stamping on this card but I do have all 4 colors represented so there is that!


  My Fab Friday team members have done a much better job with these colors so definitely head over to see how creative they all are.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

Bold Rose - Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose

  I'm knee deep in preparing for about 8 different things that I've got going on so there hasn't been much stamping time so I'm digging into the archives for today's card!  I made this one as one of my samples back in June for my new catalog party.

  Neutral with a pop of color are always a fun theme to explore in stamping.  So many great colors to choose from not to mention deciding on which stamp to highlight.  The To A Wild Rose stamp set has that great big blossom that can be colored in so many ways.


 Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Pineapple Punch are a great color trio.

 The card base is Basic Gray, then a layer of Whisper White stamped with the rose outline image in Basic Gray ink. A thin strip of Basic Gray cardstock embossed with the Subtle embossing folder goes down on side of the card front.  A bit of retired Smoky Slate ribbon brings the eye down to the bold rose stamped in Basic Gray and partially filled in with Pineapple Punch ink.  It's cut out and popped with dimensionals.

  The 'Hello' sentiment is embossed in white onto Smoky Slate and then cut out with the Stitched Shapes oval.  I added a retired white enamel dot to the side.

Just Hatched Baby Boy- Stampin' Up! Dino Days

  I don't need as many baby cards as I used to so it's kind of fun to get stamping with a wee one in mind.  A friend of ours and his wife just had their first child so we sent up a little gift along with a card.  I couldn't resist using the Dino Days stamp set for a sweet baby boy card.


  This is another card that I pulled my color inspiration straight from the Dinoroar DSP.    The card base is Mango Melody and then I cut a Stitched Rectangle frame in Whisper White, embossed it with the Subtle embossing folder and backed it with a layer of Dinoroar DSP.  I added some retired candy dots in "close enough" colors to opposite corners.

  The dino is stamped in Pretty Peacock with Mango Melody spikes.  I have him popping out of a Pool Party egg embossed with white accents and sentiment.  I sponged a bit of Pretty Peacock ink around the embossed bits to make them stand out a bit and give the egg some depth.

Feathery Thank You - Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird

Today's share is going to be super quick as it's a busy day and the to do list is long!  Here's another card for you bird lovers!


  There are so many great colors to pull from in the Bird Ballad DSP that it wasn't hard to put this card together.  The striped paper is the inspiration for the coloring of the bird.

  The feathers are fussy cut from one of the other patterns in the pack.  The different layers are pulled together with some stitched die cuts.

  And I realize I have no idea where there 'thanks' sentiment is from as it's not in the Free as a Bird set.  Oh well! No time today to dig through the stamp room to find it!

Seaside Nature - Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature

The title of this post might be a bit misleading as there isn't a beach theme going on here at all.  The Seaside is referring to the new In Color Seaside Spray which is a lovely light blue.  I paired it up with some nature images from Rooted in Nature for a cool thank you card.

  The card base is stamped with various leaf images in Seaside Spray ink.  Next I stamped the wood cut with So Saffron and sponged the edge with Soft Suede to mimic the bark.  The tree is stamped in Night of Navy.  Another leaf is stamped in Seaside Spray with Seaside Spray ink and the final leaf is Crumb Cake ink and cardstock.

  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White and flagged.  Everything is layered to one side and then a Night of Navy/Sahara Sand baker's twine bow is added with a glue dot.

Summer Rose in Green - Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose

  One of the fun things about stamping is not having to stick to realistic color schemes for any images.  You can have purple cats, blue cows and flowers any color you want even if they would never appear that way in ones garden!

  I enjoy finding color combinations from many different places.  I grabbed a fun color scheme on Sunday from cool dress in a pew ahead of me but today's color combination was inspired by this comforter in the Company Store catalog. My rose ended up being green and I don't think that's a real rose color but I don't care because with stamps and ink we can do what we want!

 
These colors just seems so summery to me.  The retired Lemon Lime Twist would have been perfect for the brighter green but since I was designing a card for class I thought that a very light touch with Granny Apple Green would give me the same look and I was right.


 I swapped the main colors but kept the floral theme and also got to work in some shimmer with Shimmer White paper and the new Shimmer White embossing powder.  Both the rose and leaf are embossed with the shimmer powder and it looks really cool in real life.  Just a tip though: when embossing on white paper be very careful not to overheat the image.  It's harder to see the change with the shimmer pay close attention.


  Once the image was heated and cooled I did a bit of light watercoloring with inks and an Aquapainter.  I sprayed a bit of water onto the rose so the colors would be more muted but did not for the leaf so the color would be more bold and not look too similar to the flower.  The center of the flower is Granny Apple Green and then Call Me Clover starts a bit darker then lightens as it reached the edges of the petals.  The leaf is Call Me Clover.

  The rose and leaf are popped with dimensionals over a die cut lattice element backed with a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock.  All of that is backed with a piece of Call Me Clover embossed with the Subtle embossing folder and mounted on a Whisper White thick card base.

  Any sort of sentiment can be used on the inside but we used a birthday on this time.

What a Cute Dino - Stampin' Up! Dino Days

  Sometimes when I set out to design a card for class I have no plan other than to make an "easy" card.  While I think my classes are doable for all levels of stampers sometimes I can have projects that require a bit more time or are technique heavy so to balance those projects sometimes a card is just simply... simple.

  Which brings us to today's card that we made at my July stamp club.  It's just basic stamping, basic die cutting and a basic layout.  I think the Dino Days stamp set is super cute and I just wanted to make a cute card that would balance out the other 2 class projects that were a bit more involved.


 See.  Simple. Basic. Cute.  At least I think so!  Nothing fancy or over the top here just a nice balanced card with some fun colors taken right from the Dinoroar DSP.  The only things to note for this card is when die cutting the back spikes for the T Rex there is a wider than usual "extra" band to the side of the spikes, this extra is so that you can have room to adhere it to the backside of the dino image.  If it cut right along the stamping it would be too narrow for adhesive.

  I gave my stampers a choice of a few of the sentiments that come in the set or to use the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.  A few of those sentiments reference "old" and "age" so for the right person you could tease a bit that they are as old as a dinosaur!

Checking on You - Stampin' Up! Check You Out - Fab Friday 169

Well this week went by quickly didn't it?  Monday started off with a bang with sending my boys to camp for the week and here it is Friday and I'm picking them up already!  And now I have to set aside some time to take care of their laundry.  Gross!  Boys!!

As always any Friday that's a Fab Friday challenge day is a good Friday!  We have a great sketch this time (I think I say that every time!) that I think is very versatile.  What are you going to do with that circle?


   Being a bookworm with a "To Read" list that never seems to get below 80 books as soon as I saw the new Check You Out stamp set I knew I needed it!  We haven't had any (?) book themed sets that I can remember since I've been a demo and that's over 10 years now so it's exciting when it's truly new for me!  So not only is it a cute book theme the sentiments are nice for some thinking of you and congratulations cards.  And it's not so serious which I like too.


  I paired our great sketch up with a color combo I had saved from a bedding catalog and thought it made for a super cute card.  I might be biased though!  

  The card base is Seaside Spray, one of the new In Colors, with the same color DSP from the In Color 6x6 DSP.  I thought the gingham was a nice light background to my wise owl.  The large circle is cut from the Stitched Shapes dies and I used that to build up my elements for the rest of the card.

  The owl is stamped in Soft Suede and has Night of Navy glasses then is fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals.  The books are stamped with Seaside Spray, Flirty Flamingo, Night of Navy and Grapefruit Grove.  The books are also fussy cut and stacked up.

  To be able to use the sentiment from this set on the narrow element in the sketch I had to finagle a bit.  I used the Night of Navy marker to ink up and stamp each word one at a time cleaning my stamp in between.  It's not perfect but I'm happy with the alignment for eyeballing it!  The sentiment is also popped with dimensionals and I added a retired Night of Navy candy dot because I need to use them up.

  Go over to the Fab Friday challenge site to see the rest of the design team.  I guarantee you'll get a ton of inspiration to start your own card to share with us.

Vintage Bluebirds - Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird

  My family thinks I'm a bit of a crazy bird lady as I have a bunch of bird feeders and bird baths throughout our yard as well as a little bird cam inside of the bluebird nesting box.  I get a kick out of seeing all the different birds in our small yard.  Bluebirds are by far my favorite so when I color the Free as a Bird images I think I tend to go straight to blues.

  Today's card is one that we made last week at my monthly stamp club.  And while the birds don't exactly resemble Bluebirds they are sweet nonetheless!

  This card has a great vintage-y vibe with sponging, script font DSP and a nice lacy label for our main image.

  The card base is Very Vanilla thick, then a layer of Pretty Peacock.  On top of that we have a panel of Sahara Sand that has a lot of stamping.  First using a sponge we inked up the All Wired Up background stamp with Sahara Sand ink.  The sponging gives a lighter tone as well as a less full image.  Over the top of the All Wired Up the blossom, bud and branch are stamped again in Sahara Sand and finally the edges are sponged. 

  Along the one edge is a strip of 1/2" Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen ribbon adhered with Tear Tape and then a very narrow strip of 6x6 In Color DSP.

  The birds are stamped in Soft Suede and then colored with Blends (colors listed below).  The gorgeous label die from the Stitched Labels die set might get overlooked but this die set is great for mixing and matching for some detailed shapes to enhance any layout.  The edges of the label are also sponged with Sahara Sand and then popped on dimensionals. 

  The final detail is the Hello sentiment stamped in Pretty Peacock.

Chic Welcome - Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic

  Today's card is one of those that came together from bits and pieces from my scrap pile.  I had a bunch of random parts that didn't make the cut on other cards so I built up this welcome card around those.  My husband gave this to a new hire to his team a few months ago.  It was the start of the hot season here so the tropical theme seemed appropriate! Change out the "welcome" and it could be for just about any other occasion.


  I guess I have a thing with Grapefruit Grove flowers this week!  Once flower is full strength ink and the second is stamped off once for a lighter look. 

  The leaves are stamped in Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz.  The flowers and a few die cut leaves are clustered on the side of the stitched circle die cut and the Basic Black "welcome" from the Well Written die set is adhered across the middle.

Rosy Birthday - Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose

  You can't go wrong with a floral birthday card!  I designed this card a while back as a sample for my new catalog party.  You can get really detailed with layering the To a Wild Rose stamp set or be more basic and just use the bold outline stamps.  That's one of the things I really like about this set; it's very versatile to do multi-step stamping or simple.


  I went detailed for the rose but simple with the leaves on this card.  The rose is stamped with all 3 layers using Grapefruit Grove which ends up being a nice peach when stamped off before layering.  The outline is full strength ink.

  The rose is layered over the top of the nice sized label die that is in the coordinating Wild Rose die set.  I stamped a leaf outline in Soft Sea Foam as well as a few behind the Stitched Lace die detail.  I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Basic Gray.

Promotion Congratulations - Stampin' Up! Welcome to the Team

 Not only do I make cards to send to friends and family for special occasions I also make cards for my husband to use at work.  He makes sure to bring a hand stamped birthday card for his team members on their special day as well as for other significant achievements.  The Welcome to the Team stamp set is perfect for some work themed projects.

  My husband was able to promote 2 people on his team recently so that gave me the perfect excuse to ink up Welcome to the Team.  I had fun mixing and matching colors to create these 2 cards.

Congrats in Mango Melody

Congrats in Pool Party
 I took my colors from the Dinoroar DSP. The non dino themed sides have fun all occasion patterns. Since the office chair stamp is kind of small I put it on a Stitched circle die cut and then embossed the sentiment on a Pretty Peacock Tailored Tag punch.

  The chairs are colored with Stampin' Blends and I didn't add any embellishments except for some retired candy dots because I still have sooooo many of them left.   

  These were fun to make not only because I got to play with a new stamp set but because it was such a great reason to get to make some cards.

Big Birthday Fish - Stampin' Up! Best Catch

 With so many fishermen in my family I was very excited that the Best Catch stamp set and coordinating Catch of the Day dies carried over to the new annual catalog.  We haven't had that many fishing sets over the years and the short time period of the Occasions catalog didn't allow much time to do this set justice.

  In a constant struggle to not drop older products each time new ones are released I wanted to mix some "old" and new products and I did that by combining the Best Catch stamp set with one of the new In Colors; Pretty Peacock.


  So far just 2 months into the new annual catalog I think that Pool Party and Pretty Peacock make for a pretty good pairing.  Remember when Stampin' Up! had "Dynamic Duos"? Totally dating myself with that one right?  But if they still did those color pairings I think this would be one!  Add in a few neutrals and we've got a nice masculine birthday card. 

  The base is Pretty Peacock and then I created a little background rectangle with Very Vanilla, stamped with Sahara Sand then embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  I backed this panel with a slightly larger piece of Pool Party. 

  Our big fish is stamped with Versamark onto Pool Party then embossed with copper embossing powder.  Once the big guy cooled down I cut him out with the coordinating die.  It's hard to see but the fins are cut so you can pop them out a bit.  That's a really fun detail that you can't always tell from the pictures in the catalogs.  The fish is popped with dimensionals over a length of Braided Linen Trim that I pulled apart for more a netting look.

 I used Itty Bitty Birthdays and my card colors to make the sentiment panels.  Don't be afraid to mix and match smaller sentiments to make for a larger element on your card.  Sometimes a tiny sentiment just disappears.  Also, on this design it created a bit of balance to the fish in the lower corner.  And it's a great way to use up some narrow scraps that I know you all have been saving!

Is That You Ferdinand? - Stampin' Up! Over the Moon

I know. I know!  This is cow not a bull but I just had to name this one Ferdinand with those flowers all around!   As you can see I'm getting a kick out of the new Over the Moon set and having fun combining it with some old favorites.

 

  This was a sample that I made to show at my new catalog party last month to feature the stamp set as well as the new In Color Rococo Rose.  I paired the Rococo Rose with Grapefruit Grove and So Saffron for a sweet combination.

  Beautiful Bouquet is a go to set for a variety of flower images as well as stems, leaves and sentiments and you can use them individually for small areas or group multiples to fill in more space.

  I really like the cows in the Over the Moon set because not only are they sweet images they don't take that long to color.  Sometimes you just want a quick coloring session and these gals fit the bill.  I used Blends to color on this card and the Crumb Cake light and dark and Petal Pink light and dark are all it took.  See!  Quick!

Dinos for Days - Stampin' Up! Dino Days - Fab Friday 168

  Vacation Bible School is kicking my butt this week so I haven't had time (or energy) to sit down and blog though I have done a bit of stamping.  But today is the last day of VBS and it's a Fab Friday challenge day so I pulled myself together to get this post written.

  We have a fun, bright set of colors this time around.  Almost a rainbow I thought when I first saw it.  I thought it would be a great set of colors for a birthday card.


  My friend Julie totally talked me into the Dino Days bundle.  I thought it was a really cute set but then I figured that my boys are older and not into dinosaurs really so it wouldn't get much use.  Well lo and behold I kept going back to it in the catalog and it somehow made it's way onto my last order!  Thanks Julie lol! 

  These dinos are perfect for our bright challenge colors.  I simply stamped them in various colors, added a bit of detailing in other colors, die cut them and arranged them around the happy birthday sentiment. 

  Some added details on the card; the pterodactyl is popped on dimensionals, the heart on the "i" and some of the dino details are colored with Wink of Stella and the background of the sentiment panel is embossed with the Subtle embossing folder. 

  Don't forget you have almost 2 weeks to join us with this Fab Friday challenge. No excuses!  Get those projects made and shared!

All the Green Leaves - Stampin' Up! Wild Rose Dies

  Sometimes a card doesn't need a lot of stamping because the die cuts and Designer Series Paper is plenty!

  I wanted to make a card where the Garden Lane DSP could shine and show off all the lovely greens that Stampin' Up! has.


  I was able to get 3 of the 5 greens in this pack of paper on this one card!  The card base is Soft Sea Foam with a layer of Garden Lane DSP.  I used a strip of retired Mint Macaron ribbon across the center.

  After cutting 3 leaves in Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam with the Wild Rose dies I adhered them to a Stitched Nested Labels die cut and popped the whole panel up on dimensionals.

  The sentiment from Itty Bitty Greeting was stamped in Mint Macaron and cut out with a small Stitched Nested Labels die.

  Sweet and simple!

Pretty Vases - Stampin' Up! Varied Vases

I'm so glad that Stampin' Up! kept the Vase builder punch and the 2 coordinating stamp sets.  I'm still seeing great projects made with these products and I didn't want the fun to end.  I highlighted the punch and the Varied Vases stamp set in one of my last classes of the just retired catalog.  It's not a difficult card but the embossing gives it a nice wow factor.


  The trick to getting the images placed just right so the vases fit onto the shelf is to use the Stamparatus.  I lined up everything just right so that my stampers could ink up the flowers, shelf and hello all at once stamp onto the Sahara Sand cardstock.  Trying to do each one individually would have resulted in smudges, crooked images and misalignment's.  Stamparatus makes it easy.

  Once the embossing was done some quick punching for the vases and popping them up with mini dimensionals set the stage for adding a pop of purple.  The solid vase is Gorgeous Grape and the other is the now retired Gingham Gala DSP in Highland Heather but any DSP would look great in this clean and simple design.

  To finish off the look a bakers twine bow goes across the card front and an adhesive sequin and rhinestone decorate one vase.

Party Cow - Stampin' Up! Over the Moon

 You can't go wrong with with a funny animal card for a masculine birthday.  The cute cows in the new Over the Moon stamp set fit the bill!

  Not only are the cows cute they are really easy to color with Stampin' Blends!  I used Petal Pink and Soft Suede for this cutie.  The moon is Daffodil Delight and the grass tufts are colored in with light Granny Apple Green.

  I kept the accessories to a minimum with just a bit of Pineapple Punch grosgrain ribbon to highlight the sentiment.

Well Said Birthday - Stampin' Up! Well Said - Fab Friday 167

We are back this week with the latest Fab Friday challenge.  We've got a sketch this time around and I think it will be very versatile and I can't wait to see what you all come up with.  The creativity among stampers is always fun to see and inspiring!


 I went with a bright color combo paired with some emboss resist to make my long panel.  The colors were inspired by this newer to me challenge; The Library Challenge.  It's a fun challenge that used books as the inspiration for each challenge.  See the end of this post for the graphic that inspired my colors.  I used Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry to sponge over the white embossed flowers.  The flower image is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

 I used some black accents to make the colors pop even more.  The sentiment is from Well Said and is embossed in white on Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I used a smaller die of the Stitched Nested Labels set to back the sentiment and then added some black embossed flowers that were sponged with color.

  Check out the rest of the Fab Friday Design Team and then join in the fun!

Copper Tipped Leaves - Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature

I'm digging back in the files for today's card share.  My stampers made this one at my May class where I was featuring stamp sets with coordinating dies where the bundle pricing was going to be ending with the start of the new catalog.  This card uses the Rooted in Nature stamp set and Nature's Root dies.  If you didn't get this with the bundle pricing during the last catalog never fear the items are still available just separately.

  We did an ink direct to paper technique which had us dripping drops of reinker onto the silicone craft mat, lightly spritzing with water then laying watercolor paper over the top and gently pressing the paper to the ink/water.  After you pull the paper up you get a lovely blend of colors and splotches.  Each person did theirs a bit differently and the results were all beautiful!

  After drying the watercolor paper the die cut leaves were tipped in copper embossing powder and heated and adhered to the card front around the sentiment.  I had lots of sentiment choices for my stampers but I went with the father's day theme for my sample.

  I want to try this technique again with some different colors for a whole different vibe.

Wild Rococo Rose - Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose

  And today I'm sharing the 3rd and final project that my stampers made at my new catalog party.  The To a Wild Rose bundle is a great bargain for a large flower set along with coordinating dies.  I really like this stamp set as you don't have to use all 3 layers of the flowers or leaves at once.  You can mix and match the layers and even use just the outline images and color them in in other ways.  And it's nice to have a big outline flower stamp for all those fun techniques out there.

  This card not only shows off To a Wild Rose but all 2 of the new In Colors; Rococo Rose and Terracotta Tile.  Rococo Rose is a nice medium pink that isn't too bright and works great for a more subdued look than say Melon Mambo.


  My stampers made this card using the Stamparatus for perfect placement of the rose layers.  We just used layer 2 & 3 and skipped the outline stamp this time.  The rose center is Terracotta Tile as well as the sentiment.

  The background leaves are stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto the Crumb Cake card base.  To keep things simple at my new catalog party we used the Crumb Cake ink on the Garden Green cardstock as well to stamp our leaf sprig.  I like the almost watercolor look of this leaf stamp.

  Using the Wild Rose dies we cut out the flower and leaf and then adhered them to the card front with the flower being popped on dimensionals.

Sweet Bovine - Stampin' Up! Over the Moon

  I think I might have an animal stamp set problem!  Looking as my past few stamp set purchases I am very animal theme heavy.  I have cats, dogs and now cows!  I couldn't resist the new Over the Moon set and these cute cow faces.  And they will be fun to color with Blends as well.

  I kept this card simple as it was a new catalog party project and I just wanted my stampers to see the new products and get to play with them without a lot of fuss.

 
With this card I wanted to highlight the Over the Moon stamp set, the new In Color Purple Posy and the Garden Lane DSP.

  The cow is stamped in Memento Black and colored with Blends.  I didn't have the new In Color Blends yet when I designed this card but the Highland Heather light Blend marker is a good match if you haven't gotten your new ones yet either.

  The rhinestone is colored with the Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blend for a nice coordinating accessory.  Pearls can be colored as well so you can always make them match your project.

Bird Love - Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird

I held my annual new catalog party last week so I designed some projects to show off the fun new Stampin' Up! products in the 2019-2020 catalog.  The first item on my pre-order was the Free as a Bird bundle as I love birds and I also love the new Stitched Nested (get it? bird? nest?) Label dies.  The shape of the dies are great for highlighting images but also sentiments.  You'll be sure to see a lot of these dies on my blog in the future.

I keep my projects for my new catalog party pretty basic so that my stampers can make them without a lot of guidance.  I wanted to show off the dies, stamp set, Bird Ballad DSP and new In Colors.  That's a lot for one card but I made it work....I think!  Seaside Spray is the In Color that's shown off on this card.  It's a great light blue that is a less "sweet, baby-like" blue than Balmy Blue.


  The background flowers are stamped on the Seaside Spray card base in Seaside Spray ink.  The feather print from Bird Ballad DSP is adhered to one side.

  The bird and branch are stamped with Memento black on Whisper White then colored with blender pens and ink (Seaside Spray, Pretty Peacock, Old Olive).  The branch and beak are colored with markers (Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede).  Remember not to over color with blender pens, it will pill up the paper and make the Memento blur.  If you keep a light touch you'll be fine.

  Once the image is all colored it's cut out with the Stitched Nested Label dies and popped on the card front with dimensionals.  The final touch is a Scalloped Linen ribbon knot in Pretty Peacock.

In Color Flowers - Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird - Fab Friday 166

Hey stampers!!  Such a busy month for me but I'm back for this new Fab Friday challenge!  Us Stampin' Up! demonstrators are really excited to share some projects using the new set of In Colors.  We have a nice set this time around and I think it will be fun to work these in with the regular colors for some fun new combinations.

  This time we have all 5 new colors as our Fab Friday challenge.  Try to use all 5 but if it doesn't work try for as many as you can.

  I managed to get all 5 colors onto my CAS card.  That's the only way I could come up with something I like!


I paired up a few new products that just happen to be a bundle in the new catalog.  Free as a Bird stamp set and the Stitched Nested Label dies.  Instead of using the obvious bird images from this set I went with the cute flower.

The flowers are embossed in white and then fussy cut.  I arranged them around the Stitched Nested Labels with the sentiment from Rooted in Nature stamped in Pretty Peacock.  Some of the flowers as well as the sentiment panel are popped on dimensionals.

I hope these colors inspire you have some fun with these new colors and share your creation with us in our Fab Friday gallery.

Tropically Fab - Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic - Fab Friday 164

   Did you all think that I had fallen off the face of the earth??  I'm still here and kicking but we've made an addition to our family that has been taking up a lot of my time!  Meet our new pup Aggie!!


  She's a very sweet pup but I've had to adjust to the "new baby in the house" routine and it hasn't left me with much time for stamping. It seems that once she falls asleep I race around trying to get to all of my regular tasks around the house and stamping has fallen to the bottom of the list.  I haven't tried bringing her into the stamp room yet.  I think I need to Aggie-proof it first.  Who knows what she'd find on the floor in there!  Are dimensional backings bad for dogs?? 

  But even with my limited stamping time I made sure to make time for this week's Fab Friday challenge!  It's a great color combination!  Do you see spring in these colors?  Here in Central VA it is leaning towards hot early summer these days but I can still appreciate some spring like colors.


   My mind went immediately to the Tropical Chic bundle.  The bundle pricing will be going away once the new catalog comes out so don't wait to order this one!


  You can't get more tropical than this!  My favorite things on this card are the Soft Seafoam die cut leaves that are popped over the leaf frame.  They fit just right and look cool hanging just over the edge of the frame diecut.  I also love the stepped down stamping of the blossom.  I only inked my blossom stamp once with Flirty Flamingo and then stamped it 3 times to get the gradient colors.  

  Definitely check out what the rest of the Fab Friday team has done with these colors!  I guarantee that you'll see something to inspire your own stamping!

Crazy Cats - Stampin' Up! Nine Lives

  I'm late to the cat punch love fest but once I got the Nine Lives stamp set from the Occasions catalog I had to design a card for my last class to show off how cute this stamp set is along with the punch.

  While everyone can do the 'stamp your image then punch it out' thing I always like to show my stampers some other ways they can use their Stampin' Up! products that maybe they haven't thought of.  I decided to show them how to create a background using different colors of cardstock and the punch.  This is also a nice way to use up some smaller scraps.  If you can get even a small part of the cat punched you can use it to fill in some of the extra spaces.  Just punch all the cats and then arrange them on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I arrange them first then take a quick picture with my phone then adhere them referring back to picture to see how I had them 'just so'.  After you have the cats adhered just trim off the overhanging bits and use of those pieces to fill in space if needed.


  The cat background panel is adhered to a Gray Granite card base.  The stamped and punched cat is mounted on a stitched rectangle die cut with dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black and the whole panel is popped with dimensionals.

  After this card was finished it reminded me of a favorite picture book of my boys when they were little.  It's called Cat Count by Betsy Lewin  The boys loved counting the cats on each page and the rhyming gives the story a nice pace.  Definitely check it out if you see this one at your library and have little ones.

Wild Highland Rose - Stampin' Up! To A Wild Rose - Fab Friday 163

  We're back with another fun Fab Friday challenge!  We have a great sketch for you this time...what can you do with!  Don't forget to share your creation in the gallery so we can all ooohh and aaahh over it!


  I used a whole bunch of new products on this card because I couldn't wait to break into my preorder when it came on Monday!

  So. Many. Awesome. New. Things!! I don't even know where to start!


I guess we'll start at the beginning!  The DSP is the lovely new Garden Lane.  Great designs using different greens.  Next is the new Scalloped Linen ribbon in Purple Posy (a new In Color!!)...look at that soft purple!  I didn't stick with the flag from the sketch but changed it to a stitched label die cut in Mossy Meadow from the Wild Rose die set.

  Next is the lovely Stitched Lace die that is big enough for a whole card front if you want.  I just cut a bit to keep with the sketch but it's beautiful as a large piece or a smaller on.

  The rose comes next and is a beautiful multi-layered blossom!  I used all 3 stamps starting with the outline in Smoky Slate, then the next layer is Highland Heather stamped off once, then the final layer in full strength Highland Heather.  The coordinating die makes quick work of cutting it out.  The leaf is stamped in similar fashion except using Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow inks.

  The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Purple Posy cardstock using the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  The flower, leaf and sentiment are popped on dimensionals.

  I can't wait to see the gallery for this challenge!  Check out the rest of the Design Team too; they always inspire with their creativity!

Bluebird Ballad - Stampin' Up! Free As a Bird

  So I have no (or very little) self-control when there is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator pre-order!  I admit it!  I want it all and I want it now!  Actually I think I do ok and just order a few things to play with because I really just want a hard copy of the catalog.  It could be really easy to go nuts but I try to limit myself to get items that I absolutely love. My preorder came on Monday and I wasted no time opening up that box and seeing my new goodies!

  The Free As a Bird bundle jumped out at me because I love birds and we just had our first nest of bluebirds for the season fledge.  I knew I had to make a bluebird card to celebrate.  How cute are these guys?


  I got some of my inspiration from my fellow Fab Friday Design Team member Brian King who is also on the Global Design Project team and his card is the inspiration this week.  The Balmy Blue gingham paper is a sweet background for these birds.

  I did a lot of coloring with my Stampin' Blends on the birds and flowers.  Prepare yourself for a lot of upcoming bird cards!  The flowers were stamped, colored then fussy cut; they're small so it's pretty easy!

  The new Stitched Nested Label dies are going to be really fun to work with.  They have a nice shape and the set has 9 dies so you'll be sure to have just the right size for your project.

  The little Old Olive leaf sprigs come from the also new Wild Rose dies which you'll be seeing a lot more of as well!

  What are you most excited to see in the new catalog?  What are you going to miss when it retires from the current catalog?

Mirrored Giraffe Love - Stampin' Up! Animal Outing

  Why does this time of the year always seem so busy and it always seems to catch me off guard?  You'd think after all these years of having kids in school and sports and whatever else our family is involved in that I would plan for the end of April until school gets out as being crazy busy!  Nope. Can't seem to do it.  So it ends up being that I haven't blogged in a while and my to do list is a mile long and I have stamping stuff piled on my dining room table left from a class last week! *sigh* At least I found a few minutes to take some card photographs today so that I could share when I have a moment to breathe!

  Today's card is one of the projects we made at my April stamp club last week.  I wanted to show off the Animal Outing bundle.  The stamp set and dies are carrying over to the new catalog but they won't be offered at the bundle pricing.  You definitely don't want to miss out on savings on something you're planning to buy anyway right?

  I was browsing Pinterest for some inspiration and came across the mirror technique on several cards.  Now in the past I've never had much luck getting a crisp mirror image when I've tried the technique using various plastic sheets so when I saw this card from BJ Peters along with a quick video of the technique I knew it was something I needed to teach my stampers.  It's so easy with the Stamp-a-ratus!  Definitely watch the video to see how easy it is. 

  We made these 2 giraffes who are clearly in love and turned them into a polaroid picture.  Once we had the giraffes and leaves stamped and colored in with Blends we cut the frame in Balmy Blue with Layering Square framelits.  Added a punched heart from the dog builder punch and a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings.  An adhesive sequin with a grosgrain ribbon knot finish off the frame accents.

  The vine die was used to make the accent at the bottom of the card front and we adhered a strip of the Animal Expedition DSP so that the Lemon Lime Twist color would show through the cut outs.

  I love the bright colors and fresh clean lines of this card.  Now I just need someone to get engaged so I can send it out!

Beautiful Butterflies - Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala - Fab Friday 162

Wow!  Mindy put the test to the Fab Friday design team this week!  It's a 5 color challenge this time around at Fab Friday!  I know you can all do it!  It's called a challenge for a reason and we want to see all of your creations in our gallery!


    They are lovely aren't they?  I couldn't decide on which colors I wanted to highlight so I made the same card twice to see what I liked better and I still can't decide!  I'm so glad the Butterfly Gala bundle is back because I really can't get enough of this fantastic stamp set and coordinating punch!


  For the first sample I used Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana cardstock on the card front and stamped the butterflies in Poppy Parade and colored them in with my Petal Pink Blends.


 
The second sample is a bit more bold with Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride and Petal Pink as the cardstock on the front and the butterflies stamped in Coastal Cabana ink and colored in with Pool Party Blends.

  The butterfly bodies and sentiment are stamped with Basic Gray.  Some Polka Dot tulle ribbon tied in a knot and a sprinkling of rhinestones finishes off both cards.

  So which do you like better?  Let's see what you can come up with and share it with us at Fab Friday!

Cute Pup - Stampin' Up! Happy Tails

I have been MIA lately and haven't been stamping much.  We've been busy with the start of spring soccer, Easter and just general life stuff.  And pulling all of my retiring products off my shelves and out of my drawers was a bit depressing lol!  It took a while to make sure I had everything; the list is really long this year.  Once I had it all pulled I didn't quite know what to do with myself so I just looked at the large laundry basket full of stuff for a few days.

While I'm getting myself and my class next week sorted I thought I would share a fun card we made last month at class.  I know I've used the Happy Tails a lot but it's so cute I can't resist!  This card is a fun and easy fun fold.  Just a few scores to make the pieces.


  The base is Tranquil Tide which is retiring and really is a great green and will certainly be missed.  Cut the base to 8.5" x 4.25" and score at 5.5".  We put some Nature's Poem DSP on the front flap.

 Next are the pawprints across the Crumb Cake panel as well as the sentiment in Tranquil Tide.  For this panel just adhere the one side to the card front leaving it loose on the other so you can open it up.


  The Mint Macaron strip is 4.25" x 1.5" scored at 2.5".  Adhere the smaller end under the panel on the inside of the card.  Stamp and punch out the sweet pup and put him/her on this flap.


  It's hard to photograph fun folds and show the details so I hope you can see how the pieces fit together!


 And here it is with both flaps opened.  I love the little paw prints on the inside as well.  That little pup has been all over the place!

I hope to be back with some new designs soon!

Blooms in Romance - Stampin' Up! All That You Are

  I ran out of time yesterday morning to post a project and just never found time to do it later in the day.  If I was really on the ball I would schedule my posts the day before but I'm really not that organized!

  Today's card is one we made in my February class.  I haven't shared it before now because each time I wanted to the photo was too horrible to put out in the universe.  I think I took 3 sets of pictures of it and each time I got them uploaded and went to edit them with my watermark I could see how poor the quality was.  So I would set it aside and do it again with the next group of cards I made.

  Finally a "good enough for government work" photo of it to share!

  My stampers really enjoyed getting to work with the Floral Romance Specialty paper from the Occasions catalog.  Not only are the colors and patterns beautiful you get 2 printed vellum patterns which are really fun to work with!  We used 2 of the regular patterns on this card and the Petal Pink design is the vellum.  It's a great mix with the leaves and lacy vellum.  The pieces are adhered to a Whisper White panel cut with the Stitched Rectangles die.

  A bit of Powder Pink ruffled ribbon (very close match to Petal Pink) wraps around the DSP panel.

 For the flowers I showed my stampers a fun way to use Stampin' Blends.  Instead of stamping the flowers in Mossy Meadow and then coloring in the flowers we scribbled the blends onto Whisper White blending the colors together and then stamped the flower image over the top and then cut them out with the Frosted Bouquets framelits.  We added a Mossy Meadow leafy branch and popped the flowers on dimensionals over the top.

  Add in a few adhesive sequins and this card is finished!  It's a great Mother's Day, Easter or all purpose spring card with those gorgeous pinks and greens!

  And now for some Stampin' Up! business; the Last Chance list has been released.  Head over to my Stampin' Up! site to see what's retiring so you don't miss out!
