Love you to pieces

love you to pieces1

I had to have the Love You to Pieces Bundle when I saw the new catalog!  I have a few friends who have children with Autism that I would love to make these for!  I have a few other designs floating around in my head as well!  I can’t wait to get back into the stamp room!

What I really like about this bundle is the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits that coordinate with the stamp set!  Stampin’ Up! now offers Embossing Pads that turn your Thinlits/Framelits into dry embossed images!  So you can create even more with this bundle!

I used 4 pieces of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 squares of the following colors: Real Red, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushell, and Daffodil Delight. I lined them up as shown below-makes for one pass through the Big Shot. how to puzzle

Boy, that close up of my clear plates makes me want to order some new ones!  Wow!

Impressed by Abstract Impressions

final-14

I finally was able to play with some of my new goodies at our retreat a couple weeks ago!  This card was one of the 3 projects our stamp club made!  If features a new color, Soft Sea Foam, as well as Abstract Impressions stamp set!  It makes the most beautiful floral cards!  The DSP is from the new Garden Impressions 6×6 pack, which coordinates with the Metallic Ribbon Combo.  The combo has the new Shaded Spruce color and Petal Pink that both have glimmer weaved in each.

Did you notice the stitching?  It came from the new Stitched Labels Framelits!!  There are so many fun shapes that include stitching that add that special texture to your creations!  final-15

I love the deep, rich color of the Shaded Spruce and Blueberry Bushel!  The color on the pad case just doesn’t do it justice!  The flowers were made with 3 colors: first was Blushing Bride, then Calypso Coral, and lastly, Melon Mambo.   I did finish it off with some Wink of Stella!

June also marks the Creative Class To Go’s return!!  I am almost done typing it up and it’s a great set of cards!  It features the new Lily Pad Lake bundle!  Look out for details on how to get your FREE card kit June 1st!

Lemonade!!

LBJF1502

How fun are lemons when it starts to feel like summer??  We made this card for my Stamp a Stack of cards a few weeks ago.  This card is simple to make with the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Punch!  The lemons have the thick black and white striped paper from the Petal Passion DSP (that is retiring! -sniffle!) that anchors the main images.  Then the petals and lemons were stamped with Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  To create depth, we used dimensionals.

Next, we wrapped Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the Whisper White piece of paper.  To finish the card, we added Basic Rhinestones and a bright Lemon Lime Twist card base!

Such a fun card for a birthday-and uni-sex too!

Pink Petals

IMG_0016

There is a beautiful pack of Designers Series Paper (DSP) in the Occasions Catalog!  Petal Passion!  It’s all black and white, but you can use all sorts of techniques to create gorgeous cards!  I made this one for a dear friend’s birthday earlier this month!  They are easy to color with Blends (like the one above), color with the Sponge Brayer & Ink, and even your Stampin’ Write Markers!

You know I had to add Wink of Stella to the blossoms!  You can make 6 cards per sheet of DSP!  And the pack has 12 sheets (2 of each of the 6 designs) You can’t go wrong!  Just throw a sentiment and some ribbon, and your done!

Sweet Tulips

I will truly miss the Tranquil Tulips hostess set!! It was a popular set with my girls this past year! The two step Stampin makes the final product so realistic! I made this card for one of my SWAPS for On Stage the other week.  I loved it so much that I am using it for the Sweet & Simple cards too!

Sahara Sand paired with the Pinewood Plank Embossing Folder created that Greige color that is so popular right now!  I stamped off the more solid petal and full strength with the detailed part of the petals.  There is Wink of Stella on the pistils too!

Be sure to stock up on your favorite colors while they last!  There are several DSP packs that are SOLD OUT!  Delightful Daisy, Coffee Break, Petal Garden, A Whole Lot of Lovely, Fast Fuse refill/full; Pansy Punch, and Fluttering Embossing Folder!

And I added links to the retired list for both the Occasions Catalog and the Annual Catalog 2017-2018!  You can have it shipped to you even if you are not local to me!

Here is the April Hostess Code B9SXQTFB!  Happy Stampin’!

Basket of Berries

Fruit Basket is one of those stamp sets that I passed by in the Occasions Catalog and then I started seeing a ton of super cute cards made with it!  And then, one of my customers ordered the Tutti-Fruiti DSP pack!  I HAD to get the whole suite after that!  The suite includes the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack, Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, Adhesive Backed Sequins, DSP, and Washi tape!  There is a set of Tutti-Fruiti Stampin’ Spots too!

The Sale a Bration Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing folder is carrying over to the NEW catalog!!! So, I whipped this card up!  I started by stamping some berries and then embossing with Silver Embossing powder over them to make the basket!  Then, I stamped & punched out some berried to layer on top. I added some DSP and a Lemon Lime Twist banner for the sentiment!  All done!  I love how it turned out!

Delightful Criss-Cross Card

IMG_3020

I am so excited that Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage is around the corner!  I made this card for a Fun Folds SWAP and it was so cute, that I had my club girls make it too!  I used the directions from Splitcoast Stampers under recourses.  Just look up Criss Cross.

I didn’t use the DSP the way it shows in the instructions.  I loved the way it looked with out the DSP.  I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets: Daisy Delight!  I just stamped it twice with Night of Navy ink and punch it out with the Daisy Punch.  I then took the two flower centers and used Daffodil Delight.  TIP: to make the textured center stamp image stand out, I stamped that on in full strength.  I followed it with the solid center, but stamped off the Daffodil Delight on my grid paper.  I used the coordinating Delightful Daisy DSP for the belly band.  The finishing touches were the Night of Navy Gingham ribbon and the Wink of Stella center.

The insert was stamped with the flower outlines, stems, and leaves.  I used the sentiment from Flowering Flourishes.

This is the last weekend to order the FREE Creative Class to Go! The cards are super cute and all the supplies come in a stamp case with PDF instructions!  Your order for the stamp set/bundle comes directly from Stampin’ Up!
