Simple Christmas Bauble

The Christmas Bauble single stamp is fun to color and easy to color with Blendabilities. I used dimensionals to mount it on the Filigree Frame embossing folder and added Rhinestone bling colored with the medium Blendabilities marker in the center and at each corner.  Cherry Cobbler 1" sheer ribbon and Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details add texture and color.

I'm not so great at leaving a bit of a light spot with the Blendabilities (the streaked spot at the bottom half on the right, so I'll have to work on that. :)

Stampin' Up! An Open Heart Nest Blendabilities on Designer Series Paper

For Shelli Gardner's convention presentation that demonstrators were allowed to see online, she showed a cute little nest made with our Burlap Ribbon.  I think that will be fun for class....I used a combination of Blendabilities and our regular markers to color this little Carolina Wren from the An Open Heart stamp set.  I saw coloring our Designer Series Paper with Blendabilities on a blog post from Stampin' Up! I think it is a fun way to add color to the Back to Black DSP.

Blooming Birthday Flower Fair Framelits Flower Patch Stamp Set MOJO356


Hot summer colors on this Flower Fair Framelit/Flower Patch stamp set card.  I hope you all think it is fun to make this week as well.  MOJO356 made a fun sketch for this card that was quick and easy.  I saw video of our fearless leader, Shelli Gardner, stamping on the large Polka Dot folder using a mask, and I thought this was another easy option.

Yellow Sweetbriar Rose Blendabilities Card

I know Single Roses are typically wild and pink, but since yellow seems to be the prettiest light color we have in the blendabilities right now, I chose it for the last of my swaps. I really like the Venetian Crochet trim with the Lovely Lace embossing folder.  I'm not sure you can see the Dazzling Details in the center of each rose?  I used the Calypso Coral for the centers of the roses as well.  I want to give this to a friend who used Yellow and Navy for her wedding back in the day, so I used Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight with Old Olive.

CASE of Patty Bennett Post it note masked column




I loved Patty Bennett's design using long Post It notes as a mask for a column of sponging.  It is so simple yet really striking I think. I used different colors, but it is a CASE.  Thanks for sharing Patty!

We used 5 inch long Post It notes as a mask.  Patty used the 5 inch wide note cards, but instead I mounted a 5 inch wide layer onto a 5-1/4 inch by 8 inch base with dimensionals.  Add a stamp from the Forever Florals set and ta da! :)

Fry box with Monogram variation...

I made a new tag to go with the Floral French Fry Box you've already seen.  (Decorated with the Flower Fair Framelits and the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die.) At class we all just chose a monogram letter to use with a Pink Pirouette tag and matching Pistachio Pudding and Wild Wasabi leaved decoration.

Cupcake Party Boo Boo card

I made a mistake with this card and didn't catch it until I'd already shipped them AND used them for my classes this month.  I usually mark my retired embossing folders (well any Big Shot stuff) with an R, and I somehow missed marking the Striped Scallop embossing folder from the Spring/Occasions Catalog....so embarrassing!  A big thank you to anyone who decided to go ahead and take the card in the swap.  If I'd noticed my error, I would have used the Fancy Fan embossing folder, and it would have highlighted the scallop-y goodness too.




  Stamps-Cupcake Party
  CS/Ink-WW, Crisp Cantaloupe, Soft Sky, So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding, Crumb Cake
  Accessories- rhinestones, modern label punch, WW cotton ribbon, oval, cupcake, 2-3/8 scallop, 2 inch circle punches,    dimensionals, Daffodil Delight candy dots and..... You are going to use the ~Fancy Fan~ embossing folder.

Forever Florals Corner Garden swap card

My sweet friend, Missi Roeber swapped some cards for me at convention this year....If you'd like to see them, I will be posting them on my blog this week.

It was a lot of fun to make this card...I really enjoy using the new blendabilities...The color is so intense that I do occasionally use the regular markers with them for contrast as on this card.  Try not to look at the little sideways bow...I guess I didn't notice that while I was photographing it. :)

It has an open flap on the front so that you could just write your message in the blank space of Corner Garden (behind the spire flower image)...

  Stamps-Forever Florals, And Many More,  Corner Garden
  Cardstock and Ink-WW, Old Olive, Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz
  Accessories- Wisteria Seam Binding ribbon, White SU! twine, modern label punch, Blendabilities in Old Olive and            Wisteria Wonder (Lightest only) Regular Pear Pizzazz and Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Write markers

This is the card sort of standing open...It was also my prototype for coloring so it isn't quite as bright as the swaps were.

Stampin' Addicts Designer Series Paper Blog HOP



Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Designer Series Paper Blog Hop!! We're showcasing pretty Stampin' Up! dsp patterns in seven short stops for you!

The first six stops are papers that can be purchased using Stampin' Up!'s July "Buy 3 Get 1 Free" promotion (The papers that are $10.95), so I hope you find four that you like. I admit I had no trouble! :)

If you're traveling in order, you've probably come from Sara's Lily's Ink Pad blog where she showed lovely designs with the FUN Flashback paper.  The star cards are expeciallyh wonderful I think.  Should you get lost or want to chat, here is a Post on Stampin' Addicts that can help you get back on track.



My focus is the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper....The bright colors lend themselves to a variety of uses. Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry make great stripes and polka dots, so these prints were fun to see. This card is for the MOJO Monday sketch 353 (MOJO353), and I really enjoy the Hostess set, Nuts about You with it.



Next is this Daffodil Delight monochrome card with the Amazing Birthday set....I just added some Dazzling Details and two Rhinestone Bling around the "Amazing" for emphasis...Quick and Cutesy.


I probably should have shown more restraint on this card...It is bright and busy, but hopefully fun...
Just a quick punch of the Cupcake Party set made the centerpiece for this card.


Now it is time to venture over to Holly's Rubber Redneck Blog for her beautifully detailed creations with the Confetti Celebration designer series paper.

Stampin' Addicts New 2014 Stampin' Up! Catalog Blog Hop Flamingo Lingo



Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts 2014 New Catalog Blog Hop. Each of us can't wait to show you our favorite sets from the New Catalog, so I hope you'll hop through to see some fun creations. Should you want to chat or see all the links in one spot, here is a link to the chat thread on the Stampin' Addicts website.

You may have arrived from Twila's Stamp A Little Longer blog. I really enjoyed her great designs with Bordering Blooms....Lovely color scheme!

I am using this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set....Each year Stampin' Up! provides an opportunity for us to buy a set that benefits this charity.  This year $3 from each set sold will be donated to RMHC.  I always get the set and usually really like it.  I like it especially well this year!

First, I have flowers and leaves in Florida Flamingo colors which provides a quick dress up for the French Fry box.  I used a little bit of the Flower Fair Framelits and the Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die as well as the Chalk Talk Framelit to create the Flamingo tag.  Pink Pirouette, Pistachio Pudding, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White were the colors I used.




Next, is the MOJO Monday sketch for this week, MOJO350.  I used the Lovely Lace Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background and used the All Abloom designer series paper stack for the Blush Blossom based color scheme and paper.  Tickled Pink is great for just a congratulations or for welcoming a new baby girl...


Finally, I just wanted to use a more Coral color with it. :)  I used the Striped Scallop Framelit for a background. The card is Very Vanilla and Calypso Coral...I realize it looks almost Tangerine Tango...sorry...To finish, I put pearls at the top of the card.



Now it is time to visit Holly's Rubber Redneck blog to see her lovelies with the Flower Patch set and matching Flower Fair framelits.
