Sneak Peek of Beauty & Joy

Nothing looks better than a topiary on your porch! This set was so much fun to play with and I see a ton of other ideas to use it for too! It can be used for all seasons! Just change up your color scheme and embellishments and you have a stamp set you can use all year!

This set if from the upcoming Holiday Catalog!!! Do you need one mailed to you!?? I can send one your way! This card also features the new Brick & Mortar 3-D embossing folder as well! To create the aged look on the bricks, I took a Craft White pad and dragged it across the top lightly. I then would rub in any areas that looked too streaked.

Then I used a strip of the 6×6 Regals DSP pack, Cajun Craze, to accent the side. The topiary is stamped with Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede, and Cajun Craze. Next, I accented the greenery with Merry Merlot berries and Wink of Stella. It’s all finished with the sentiment of your choice!

The Extra-Extra deal is coming to an end next week! (8/31/19)

For $99-you get to choose $155 in any current catalog (including the holiday)! That is $30 more in product than usual!!! You will have until December 2019 to meet your minimums too! Win win! Click on Laura’s Stampin’ Up! website to sign up now!

Inspired by Carnations

I love flowers-especially carnations! And my husband loves that they are easier on the pocket book! ūüė¨ Seriously-they stay alive so much longer and I can enjoy them!

The Inspiring Iris set was on my “have to have” list! Irises remind me of our childhood house and how they grew along with the daffodils every spring! My mom and I both love purple too! Miss her so much!

I made this card fort Sweet and Simple class. I started with Black Memento Ink and stamped the outline of the flowers. I followed that with Garden Green to fill in the leaves. Then, to create the carnations variation, I stamped with Blushing Bride frost and then rolled the top of the stamp with Rococo Rose. I love the results!

I ran a piece of card stock with the Scripty Embossing folder to tie in the Rocco Rose. Next I added a piece of the Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen ribbon. It was finished off with Wink of Stella clear! Finally, I added the cute and curved “thanks” sentiment on top of one of the flowers!

Mosaic Beauty

When we were at On Stage in April, they gave all of us a pack for the Mosiac Mood Designer Series Paper. It is gorgeous! You could just get a few dies/punches, a stamp set with a lot of differnt sentiments, and you are set! I made this one for my Sweet & Simple class last month.

I have seen so many pretty cards where people have fussy cut the roses, humming birds, and patterns out and just added a sentiment. The Mosaic Moddre is the coordinating stampe set that has a willow tree in it that is so pretty!

I used the scalloped edge die from the retired Be Mine dies. And I love the Stitched Label dies! Just look at the elegant detail! You can make simple cards that will wow your friends!!

I stamped the sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set onto Mint Macaron. Next, I added some pearls to the front and some gold thread to the back. All done in less than 10 minutes!

Be sure to get your hands on the NEW products 24/7! Just shop my store and I will mail you a gift for purchases over $30!

A Walk Down Daisy Lane!

TIP: stamp your daisies on the Very Vanilla on top of the base to align the images.

I was so excited when I saw the Daisy Lane stamp set in the catalog! What a great addition to the Daisy Delight and Daisy Punch from last year’s catalog! AND there is a new Medium Daisy punch that is a little smaller to help you make even more detailed flowers!

I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class that I hold once a month. It is a popular class for people who are new stampers or for those that need a creative fix! I used the new Birch background stamp and stamped Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla. Next, I placed the Very Vanilla piece on top of the Rococo Rose card base (my favorite new IN-Color!) and stamped the stems with Pretty Peacock. This made the placement of the daisies much easier. I then stamped the daisies off-set onto the card base and the Very Vanilla.

As you can see, I learned the hard way. But it’s still a pretty card! To finish the card, I then stamped 2 more daisies on a scrap piece of paper and then punched them out. I jused a dimensionnal to place them on top of the one on the Very Vanilla. I then added some Wink of Stella Clear to the centers. The sentiment was stamped with Pretty Peacock and cut out with the new Timeless Label punch! I added some Pretty Peacock to a sponge and distressed the edges before adhering it with dimensionals.

I had my NEW Catlaog Launch & Customer Apprecition event last weekend! It was a hit! AND I reached my first career sales milestone!!! 100k! Here are a few items I made with the new IN Colors ! A set of cards using the A Little Lace stamp set and the In Color 6×6 card pack.

Bookmarks that show case the new In Colors! Everyone recieved one of these in their goodie bags!

Stampin’ Up! has already placed the Daisy Lane stamp set as a top seller!!! I can see why! The Medium Daisy punch is on it’s way here-I can’t wait to create more with it!

Free as a Bird is one fun set to create with for me!¬† The birds are just so stinkin’ cute sitting on the branch!¬† Notice the fun shape for the frame it is stamped on?¬† It’s from the new Stitched Nesting Dies!¬† There are several sizes and with the double stitching, you can use the negative piece as well as the original piece!¬† Paper saving always makes me happy!!

I created the background using the coordinating Bird Ballad DSP and Soft Suede stamped with the new Birch background stamp!  I love the new cling stamps, especially with the background stamps! You can use the Stamparatus to make your background come out perfect!  It sticks in place while you ink and clean the stamp!!

There are some darling embellishments in the Bird Ballad Trinkets!  I chose a key this card, but you can add a sprig, a flower, or a bow too!

To create the watercolor look, I did use the Stampin’ Blends: Calypso Coral (light/dark), Soft Suede (light/dark), Mossy Meadow (light/dark), and Crumb Cake (light/dark).¬† Then I went over where I wanted to blend and highlight with the Color Lifter.

Magnolia Madness!

VGZF8107

I had so much fun creating this card last weekend at our craft retreat weekend!  We timed our retreat perfectly so we can play with our pre-order products!  The Magnolia Lane Suite became my favorite to create with!  You will have to have this suite in your stash! (especially if you are from Texas).

To create this 3-D card, I used the Magnolia Memory dies to create the flowers and leaves.  I used a Sponge Dauber and some Blushing Bride to color from the center to the outer section of the petals. I used a couple Glue Dots on the backs to layer them together.  Next, I cut out the pistils with Blushing Bride and layered them on top of the Whisper White petals.  To finish off the flowers, I added some Wink of Stella and a pearl.

They looked more like orchids, so I used the branch from the Seasonal Layers dies. The background was using one of my favorite go-to embossing folders, Subtle!!¬† It’s a must have! The sentiment was cut out using the new Stitched Nested Labels!¬† (I went a little crazy with this card!!)

Did you know that if you join our team today, you can order off the PRE-order as part of your custom kit???  Just think how jealous your friends will be that you have the newest products before they do! For $99, you get to pick $125 of current product offerings!

Amazingly Beautiful

7271E5F2-8954-4F16-88B2-15982210E5E1My it’s been a busy couple of weeks!¬† I can’t believe we are half way through April too!¬† I have been preparing my roomie gifts, swaps, and club projects the past few weeks.¬† I made this card for a On Stage Swap and had to use it for club too!¬† I can let you in on a secret….the Beauty Abounds stamp set and dies are carrying over!

I have to say Highland Heather is one of my favorite colors right now!¬† I used the Lace 3-D embossing folder to make the Basic Grey add more texture to the card.¬† I added some of the bubbles using Highland Heather and I used Smoky Slate for the grainy stamp.¬† The butterflies were stamped with Gorgeous Grape and cut out with the Die Cutting Machine. Of course I had to add Wink of Stella to this card….it just called out for it!

I love the Silver Baker’s Twine-it helps add some dimension and whimsy to the sentiment that I used from A Big Thank You stamp set.

We had an amazing time at On Stage San Antonio! I always enjoy spending time with my team, seeing familiar faces/friends, meeting new friends, and seeing all the NEW products!!! The best part was watching my dear friend (and downline) attend her first On Stage!  Plus-she promoted to Silver the week before!  I am so proud of her and what she brings to inspire others!
