Simply Sunday: Beautiful Day!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh my goodness … I’m slackin’ a bit today!! I have to work which is unusual for me on a Sunday but I wanted to let my staff have a “sleep in” day after their prom.

Today I have I have a beautiful card to share with you that is very easy to make yet quite elegant. We made this card for our May Stampin’ Club meeting …

I used one of the designer papers from the Share What You Love … Got to Have it All bundle.  It is so pretty! We then stamped our greeting and the flowers to wrap around the greeting.

The flowers coordinate with the designer paper, so I decided we should watercolor our flowers as well.  We used the Aqua Painters and a drop or two from the ink refills… then colored them in.  We used the coordinating marker to draw the lines in …

Those that know me well and have attended my classes, clubs and / or retreats know that I love “sparkly” things, and the Glitter Dots are one of my favorite.  I was sad to see these on the “RETIRED” list but happy to see they are back … just in pretty new colors!!  Wooo Hooo!!

Here is the Level 3, or should I say “Got to have it All” bundle!!  This awesome bundle is what I used to create my card.

The bundles (there are 4 of them; listed below) are available to you as a special pre-order … in this kit your FREE gifts include the “Share What You Love” Embellishment Kit, Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes and the “Statement of My Heart” stamp set!!

I can’t forget to mention the ribbon … the beautiful velvet ribbon!! I coordinates so beautifully and gives the card an added dimension, texture and warmth.

Thank You so much for stopping by my blog today.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Saturday …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m visualizing a Happy Saturday! I don’t normally work on Saturday or Sunday (which I am tomorrow) but I’m working so my staff can have off for their prom.  So I’m thinking it’s going to be a good day!

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and whether your favorite guys are sports fans or outdoorsmen or techie nerds, they’ll never tire of getting a handwritten “I love you” in big, swirly letters on their special day, especially inside a card made by you. Watch the Manly Moments unboxing video now and get a jump on Father’s Day by creating your cards today!

Here is a cute little saying I found this morning … with my cup of coffee of course! I thought it was too cute not to share.  So enjoy your day and let me know if you “make” something!! I love to share it on my blog.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Check back with me tomorrow for my Simply Sunday series.

Have a Happy Saturday~

We Share what we Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have I have a beautiful card to share with you that we made at our Annual Spring Stamping Retreat. The card was cased from fellow demonstrator and Artisan member; Kim McGillis.  I could not resist her beautiful card and the dimension on this card … it was almost like getting a bouquet of flowers!

We used the “Got to Have it All” bundle from the Share What You Love product suite.  This is still available on a pre-order for you before the end of May.  What is different from waiting until the catalog comes out June 1st?  FREEBIES … Stampin’ Up! has added extra product for you in each of the bundles … the bigger the bundle, the more free product!!

Here is the “Got to have it All” bundle!!  This awesome bundle is what was used to create today’s card…

In this kit your FREE gifts include the “Share What You Love” Embellishment Kit, Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes and the “Statement of My Heart” stamp set!!

As I stated earlier, this card was cased by fellow demonstrator Kim McGillis. Each of our cards turned out slightly different because each guest got a 6 x 6 piece of the beautiful designer paper (shown in the lower left-hand side of the picture) and they cut out the flowers they wanted to add to their card.

The big flower you see centered in the doily has a shimmer to it. This is not only a beautiful designer paper, it is a specialty paper … there are several of the sheets that have the shimmer on them.  What I love is the shimmer coordinates with the new Pearlized Doilies – they coordinate … oh heck, they just look beautiful together!!

I have surprise to share with you!! This comes from fellow demonstrator Marlieke Smetsers!! Oh my gosh, this is so clever … look at all the different patterns Marlieke created using the Pearlized Doilies!! You could use them to highlight a greeting … as snowflakes … to embellish a part of your card, the possibilities are endless.

Today I’d like to “THANK” Kim and Marlieke … my fellow demonstrators for “Sharing What They Love”. We have a large community of sharing and caring demonstrators, it is a wonderful group to be a part of! I’d love to have you join my group and the Stampin’ Up! family … because that is what we all are.

Thank You so much for stopping by my blog today.

Have a wonderful day!

Petal Pallet: Life Is So Much Better

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you got to enjoy a wonderful weekend and got spoiled a little!  I also hope you got a chance to check out my post yesterday to see the new In-colors. I love these cards and the simplicity yet they were so pretty!

Today I have one of the cards that I created for the Spring Stamping Retreat.  Our retreat highlighted “caring” cards … cards that we create to make someone feel better, to cheer, encourage or relay our sympathies. This was one of those cards …

I began with the Petal Pallet bundle and designer series paper. I knew I wanted to use the beautiful floral die in the bundle.  I also want a little bit different of a fold … just for fun! Petal Pallet will be in the upcoming catalog but it will no longer be a bundle (Save 10%) after May 31st.

We used the Multipurpose adhesive sheets with the Silver Foil sheets and then cut them out with the BigShot! Turns them into stickers … and then we just pressed them onto our card.  This made it super simple to watercolor the flowers using ink and Aqua Painters. Then we drew the little lines into the flower petals with the coordinating marker.

I’ve used the Petal Pallet bundle quite a few times already, it is a very versatile stamp set and I love the coordinating dies. It has great verses / greetings as well … and I will admit, that will sway me towards a stamp set.  Sometimes I will choose a stamp set just because of the beautiful verses.

Thanks for dropping in for the visit today …

I hope you have a marvelous Monday!
