Birthday

Just Peachy

I have an obsession with fruit themed stamps and Designer Series Paper! I went to our Mother’s Day retreat and ended up making several projects with this super sweet bundle!

Today we drove an hour away to check out our friend’s new peach farm in East Texas! I miss the fruit trees we had when I was growing up, so this was an amazing day trip! They had fresh produce, homemade ice cream (YUM!), and baked goods! We got a quick tour of the orchard too! Soon they will have blackberries ready to pick!

But, you want to know how to create super cute peaches with the Sweet as a Peach set!

I used the new Pale Papaya to stamp the peaches and then I took a sponge dauber with Calypso Coral to dab on the side of the peaches.

A great feature of this bundle is that you can stamp then cut out 3 peaches at a time! I added the peaches after I stamped two of the greenery stamps. I did over lap in the center a little, but I knew I was going to cover it with the sentiment and ribbon.

To finish off this card, I stamped the tiny flowers with Pale Papaya and then added Champagne Rhinestones. Such a sweet and adorable card to brighten someone’s day!

I made an easel card too using the bigger peach and the coordinating DSP!

I still love to send out cards. It’s a gesture that needs to be taught and continued! I cherish all the cards my mother sent me over the years. I have them tucked in places and run across them some days. It’s always the perfect message from her in the card for that day. It’s almost like she wants me to find the cards to speak to me! Miss her dearly!

Lovely Bees

Who doesn’t love bees? (well not right in my face) But they are soooo beneficial for the environment, pollination, honey, and defying physics! I love the colors of black, white, yellow, and gold together!!

We had our Team Gathering last month. I have always wanted to do a Card Gut challenge! We all got the same sized pieces of cardstock and DSP in an envelope. We all were allowed to add extra colored paper, embellishments, and stamps. We just couldn’t alter the paper included in the card guts! I posted three of our team’s cards on this post!

During Sale-a-bration, one of the FREE items choices is the Golden Honey Specialty DSP! I LOVE THIS PAPER! Playful and yet elegant patterns of black, white, and gold to make your projects gorgeous! And since it specialty paper, it’s thicker and metallic!

I started with the card guts: Thick Whisper White cardstock, Golden Honey DSP, Basic Black. I ran the Basic Black through the die cutting machine with the Hammered Metal 3-D folder. I wanted a pop of yellow, so I added a mat piece of Daffodil Delight. I ran a piece of Gold Foil through the die cutting machine with the hive die for a fun accent.

To create the bees I stamped with Versa Mark and then heat embossed with the Shimmer Black embossing powder! Have you tried it yet? It made the bees so fun and whimsical! I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment!

Now to show you the team’s creations!

Connie’s Creation using blends, gold foil, and gold edged trim ribbon
Kathy used a sponge technique to color the card base. The bees and bike were colored too!
Kelli used gold foil and the bee dies.

I hope you enjoyed the card cards we all made from the same pieces! Be sure to check out all the great new products in the Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration freebies! Laura’s Stampin Up! website.

Oooh La La

I remember thumbing through the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog and thinking this set was cute. It wasn’t until I saw tons of super adorable cards made on Pinterest and the internet that I HAD to have it! This card was designed in minutes! Simple and perfect for your fashion divas in your life! I can see so many more wonderful ideas coming for this card!

Petal Pink is usually not one of my first colors that I turn to, but it really works with this card! I started by stamping the floral bunches and sprigs on Petal Pink card stock with Black Memento ink randomly. Then I stamped the perfume bottle and cut it out with the coordinating die. There is a fun watercolor swoosh that I stamped with Petal Pink in the center of the bottle. Of course I had to use Wink of Stella to make the perfume bottle sparkle!

Next I stamped the sentiment in Black Memento and cut it out with the scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I adhered the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon behind the cardstock with the sentiment. I used dimensionals to make the images pop! To finish off the card, I placed a Champagne Basic Rhinestone!

Sheltering Umbrella

The Umbrella Builder Punch helps make cards pop in a snap!

My bestie and I just went on a craft retreat last weekend! It was so nice to have some creative time after such a busy holiday! We live in the crazy weather state-Texas! While at the retreat-we had severe weather (including tornadoes) and snow the next morning! Just crazy! But it inspired me to use this lovely Under My Umbrella Bundle!

I saw a card on Pinterest that inspire me to use the No Line Watercolor technique for the main image!i love the softness it created! To create this: use ink pads or markers to stamp the lined portion of your stamp on to paper. The. You will use a Blender pen and re-inker to color the insiders the image in the matching color. The results are stunning!

Next step is to stamp the umbrella on to the card stock color of your choice and punch it out. I added some extra bling with the new Champagne Basic Jewels! That needs to be a staple in our main catalog! Love these! Next, I added some rain drops in Pool Party on Pool Party cardstock. I cut out the stamped image and sentiment using the Stitched Nested labels. Of course I had to add Wink of Stella on the flowers!

Be sure to get your bundle today and start making some adorable cards! With Sale a Bration, you can earn a SAB catalog item with each $50 you order!!
