Last Chance plus FREE Rhinestones!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share one more card from the Color Your Season Bundle: The Blended Seasons Stamp set and the Stitched Seasons Dies and then we’ll take a look at all of the different and beautiful cards you can make with this one bundle … and this bundle goes away today.  True, today is the last day to order this amazing stamp set and die.

We made this card at my Holiday Catalog Launch Party …

I used the middle size die and stamped the Holly swag onto it.  The holly was colored with the Watercolor Pencil Assortment 2 which are available with the Blended Season stamp set and dies. The designer paper is the Under the Mistletoe and is the driver of my color pallet.

I stamped my greeting in Real Red ink onto the Vellum Cardstock and then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. It is much prettier on the card than what shoes up on the photo. Oh yes … and the little berries on the holly are the pretty Red Rhinestones. YOU CAN GET THEM FREE (Keep reading)

Here is another card with this bundle in which I you could use the Red Rhinestones  …

One more Christmas card to share with you.  Kind of fun to see them all together!

What comes after Christmas … but spring! This is one of Stampin’ Up!s card creations, I just love how they created a wreath using the leaves …

I also have a card that can be used anytime during the year … Spring, Summer, you name it~

How about one more before the color weather returns and the colors begin to change …

Even the last 3 cards look so different from each other … yet all so pretty.

Next would be Fall / Autumn cards … I challenged myself because I had not used the “wheat” stamp up to this point so here it is…

The Country Lane Designer paper used on this card will first be Available Sept.5th).  Now … if you purchase the bundle today, you will qualify for the Bonus Buy and receive a $5 Coupon code to spend next month!!

Here is another card for the upcoming fall season … One of my favorites, this card was heat embossed with Gold embossing powder and colored with the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 and blender pen …

I just want to remind you that this bundle is gone today.  Today is the last day you can order the bundle (See below)

I wish this was in our Annual Catalog … it is one stamp set that I have no trouble trying to come up with ideas for!  One that note, here are a few more cards ~

This card was created with the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 and today is possibly the last to get them for sure …

This was yesterday’s card where I also used the Watercolor Pencils and the Blender pen …

Wow … amazing right!! So many styles, so many occasions … This is such a fun and versatile stamp set and dies.  And don’t forget the Watercolor pencils.  IN FACT, If you purchase the bundle from me and include the watercolor pencils … I will send you the Real Red Rhinestones as a special gift for shopping with me.

A Spooky Little Peek into the Holiday Catalog …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today a I have a spooky little Halloween card from the Holiday Catalog. I’m featuring the Toil & Trouble Product Suite on pages 48 and 49. Today’s card highlights the Cauldron Bubbles Designer Series paper and the “Sponging” technique and has a fun little twist!

First … let’s start with our designer paper, grab the pattern with the bats on, bring over the Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, and Night of Navy ink pads and some sponges.  Wait … I have another technique for you! Masking!! You will need your 1-1/4″ Circle punch.

First you will use the paper that you punched the hole from and align it onto your cardstock so you can sponge yourself a moon.  Now take the circle you punched out, add a touch of removable adhesive (so your mask comes back off) and place it over you moon on your batty paper.

Once your moon is done and you have placed your mask over the top … you can begin sponging your Gorgeous Grape around the sky.  The fun part is … your bats are already there.  Now I added some Night of Navy to create a deeper nighttime color.  I also sponged a little color over the moon to create a spooky little effect.

Now I’m sure you noticed that the bats were flying high about the houses … I love the silhouette look that using the die cuts from the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.  Who said it just had to be used on Christmas cards! I like to cross-over a lot of my stamping supplies – gives me the best value for my buck!

Sponging creates so much dimension on your card and it’s so simple to create. The greeting comes from the Cauldron Bubbles stamp set and was cut out with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  Wow … that at that, you just created this really cute card in minutes.

Thank you for hanging out and stamping with me today.

Make today a good one … enjoy.

And Heaven & Nature Sing …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Did you get a chance to check out yesterday’s blog? It has 3 great card shares … Halloween, Autumn and Christmas. These cards were all from my Holiday Catalog Launch party and I have one more to share with you today!

Today’s card features the Nature Sings stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I think this stamp set is perfect for a masculine card (even a birthday card) or a family that enjoys the outdoors and nature.  We used the pair of deer and the trees …

My color pallet is natural – highlighting the new Shaded Spruce and teaming it with Old Olive. I based these from the pattern of Designer paper I chose in the Under the Mistletoe designer paper… I thought it was cool that there was that pretty deer patterned paper, then I added the stacked wood from the Wood Textures Designer paper stack.  It all fits so … well, naturally! It Brings the wood tones in with the green tones … just like nature gives us.

My base is Shaded Spruce cardstock and the card front is Old Olive … I stamped the trees 2 times before re-inking the stamp onto the front so you get a double shade of the Shaded Spruce. Also gives you an appearance of distance or dimension.

The deer where highlighted by stamping them onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the circle die from the Stitched Shapes Thinlits Dies. The coloring was done with the Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend markers.

I finished off my card with the Bakers Twine (yes … it’s Garden Green) but it looks really nice with the card. The greens tie nicely together and the white ties in the deer on the designer paper and it all brings your eye to the focal point … the Nature Sings stamp set.

I thank you for joining me today and checking out my Christmas card creation.

Hope this inspires you to discover a little nature today … enjoy.

Oh What a Night …

Hello Stampin’  Friends ~

Oh what a night … I always liked that song! And last night was a blast! I held my Catalog Launch party and we gathered to made 8 Holiday cards, ranging from Halloween to Christmas. Even our snacks ranged from Halloweens Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Mummies to White Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispy Yummies!

We all had a great time, met some new people and enjoyed a night full of stamping …

Let’s start our card share with Halloween!! This enchanting card will put a spell on you with it’s bubbling cauldron of fun. It comes from the new Toil & Trouble product suite …

Our Granny Apple Green background was embossed with the  Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder … I like that it looked like little bubbles floating up, just like my cauldron is doing!  It was matted with the Gorgeous Grape and adhered to the Basic Black base… all of these are in the Toil & Trouble Cardstock pack.

My bubbling cauldron is from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series paper and cut with the Cauldron Framelits Dies. I stamped the bubbles above it, added some pearls colored with the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and a touch of the Wink of Stella! I finished off my card with the awesome Black Glitter Ribbon – LOVE IT!!

I forgot to tell you that my sweet -n- spooky ghost was created with the Gorgeous Grape Watercolor Pencil from  Assortment 2, a blender pen and a touch of Wink of Stella.  I also used the Watercolor Pencils on my Fall card …

There it is … that Blended Seasons Bundle again!! I have more cards up in my head because there is are just so many things you can to with bundle. I don’t think I need to explain much on this card, I’ve said it all before with my past cards… This stamp really should be in your stamp collection.

The last card I’m going to share with you is the Christmas card … so simple and so elegant!  My base is the new Balmy Blue. The greeting is from the new Timeless Tidings stamp set and is Heat Embossed in white. It brings out that touch of white that surrounds the silver.

We embossed the “Seasonal Wreath” onto the Silver Foil Sheet. If you like it on the photo, you should see it in person … it’s stunning!!

We also added some Silver Twine and the Clear Faceted Gem to add some bling, dimension and texture.

I hope you enjoyed the cards we made last night, and we’d love to have you join us at our next stamp camp ..

Thank you so much coming over today. See you soon.

Just a reminder that with each $50 purchase (before shipping & handling) you will receive a Bonus Buy coupon code worth $5 from Stampin’ Up! to spend on your September purchase … when the Holiday Catalog goes live!!  AND … you will also get a Virtual Rewards point from me as well … double the fun!



Simply Sunday: Reflections + One

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have some new subscribers … welcome everyone!  I’m so excited today to share my reflection of the Color Your Season cards I’ve created so far (I have 2 more for my Launch Party tomorrow) and a new one to share today.

Lets begin with the Spring / Summer cards … This card was created from a mistake I made in class (there are no mistakes in stamping … just opportunities to improve or embellish!)  I just realized that I never shared the original card! lol  I must admit, I don’t always share the cards we do in class, I want them to be special for my attendees.

This is one of Stampin’ Up!s card creations, I just love how they created a wreath using the leaves …

Next would be Fall / Autumn cards … I challenged myself today because I have not used the “wheat” stamp up to this point so I’m introducing you to my creation today. This really is a simple card to create, and made easier when I looked up and saw this beautiful pattern paper sitting in front of me (I originally had a hand-stamped background) ~

Sponging is that “old” technique that will never go away … It’s quick, easy and creates a dramatic look!! When I think of wheat, I think of fields of wheat dancing in the breeze on a warm sunny day, and the golden color is so beautiful.

I cut my card front out first with the middle size die (there are 3 in the die set) and the vellum cardstock with the largest die.  I punched a 1-1/4 circle punch and used it to mask my front.  The sponging was done in Crushed Curry and at the very bottom there is a touch of Sahara Sand.

The wheat and the greeting (included in the stamp set) are stamped in Crumb Cake. I know, it looks much darker, but it is the gold tones that really bring out the richness of the Crumb Cake.

Now remember … the background for the base of my card was originally hand-stamped but as fate had it, I looked up and saw the Country Lane Designer paper (Available Sept.5th).  I laid the card front on top of it and knew that is exactly what this card need to finish it off!!

I just want to remind you that this bundle is only available for a few more days (or while supplies last) …

I wish this was in our Annual Catalog … it is one stamp set that I have no trouble trying to come up with ideas for!  One that note, here are a few more cards ~

This card was created with the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 which is also leaving in a few days …

This was yesterday’s card where I also used the Watercolor Pencils and the Blender pen …

My Christmas card was created using the Stampin’ Blends … that is the beauty of this bundle.  There are endless coloring techniques you can use!!

Again, I used the Stampin’ Blends and did some fussy cutting to create the arrangement on my wreath.  The bow is cut from the Silver Foil paper and colored with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend.

So … what do you think? Versatile right? I haven’t shown the bells yet … In class we used them for a wedding card.  Here is today’s card once more, I think it turned out even better than I imaged when I began.

Oh wow … it appears I can’t spell – lol. That is “Blended Seasons” … Oh my!!

Thank you so much for joining me this Sunday. I appreciate you taking the time to visit on your weekend.

I hope you are having a wonderful and relaxing day.




Color Your Season Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful autumn card filled with color and a touch of Gold … oh so pretty.  This is just one of the cards that we created in my Color Your Season Class. I am head over heels with this bundle because there is so much possibility and so many occasions you can create.

This amazing bundle will cover every season and is perfect for Birthday’s, Christmas, Thank You, and even Weddings!

My card today brings on the warmth of the Autumn season and is the perfect card to share with “your” person, the friend that is always there for you …

The leaves were stamped with the VersaMark pad and heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder.  The amazing color in the leaves comes from the new Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen… simple yet stunning!  You could also use your Aqua Painter with the Watercolor Pencils and create a “softer” look.

The Watercolor Pencils and the Color Your Season bundle are only available through August 31st, 2018 or while supplies last! Tomorrow I will be sharing a “Reflection of the Seasons” which will highlight all of the cards that I’ve shared so far and another NEW Creation for you!

Today’s card was done on Very Vanilla, embossed with Gold and backed with Gold Foil Paper.  The beautiful greeting comes with this amazing stamp set and was also heat embossed in Gold …

As the leaves gently fall you will notice that we began with our greens and slowly adding Crushed Curry … then Cajun Craze and finally the Cherry Cobbler – just like the color changes in the fall. I wanted to add a gold leaf just to highlight the gold and pull everything together (plus it’s really pretty).

It really didn’t take long to color and blend on the card and it was very relaxing … brings you back to the days when you were a kid and your Mom gave you a coloring book to keep you busy on a rainy day. We don’t seem to take advantage of that type of downtime … now you can relax and create beautiful cards that will bring joy to a friend. Life doesn’t get better than that.

I thank you for stopping by today and spending some time with me. Stop back tomorrow for a “Reflection of the Seasons” which will highlight all of the “Color Your Seasons” cards that I’ve shared so far and another NEW Creation for you!

Have a beautiful day and share a smile with a friend.
