Simply Sunday: Love You Lots

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share one of the cards that we made in our January Stamp Club using the Heartfelt Bundle.  I will tell you it’s not the best photo (I took it sitting on my couch) but I love the card … it is cased from fellow demonstrator Mary Fish.

The Heartfelt Bundle includes the Heartfelt Stamp Set and the Heart Punch Pack. Use the hearts and arrows in the Heartfelt Stamp Set to create treat tags, boxes, and cards for Valentine’s Day. The greetings are designed to convey love and friendship.

Use the Heart Punch Pack to create a paper heart and a scallop paper heart. Use punched images separately or layer for beautiful coordination. I wanted to show that the beautiful designer paper was created to be “punched” out if you choose. I teamed it up with another pattern from the designer paper.

We punched out the “designer” heart and backed it with a Flirty Flamingo heart punched from the scallop Heart punch included in the bundle.

The playful heart patterns in the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper have red and pink foil accents on some designs. Some images from the paper can be cut out using the Heart Punch Pack. This paper is excellent for valentines, cards, and scrapbook pages.

You’ll get 12 sheets of patterned paper: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs.  It is Acid free and Lignin free! The designer paper colors include: Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Whisper White … we found making our cards that if you stamp off the Flirty Flamingo, you will get that pretty pink that coordinates with the paper!

Oh I can’t wait to get back into my studio and start stamping!! Do you know how hard it is to have off work and not be able to get in your stamp room … I’m going crazy! lol

Thank you so very much for stopping in today. I love using punches, it makes card making go so quickly.

Have a beautiful day ~

How “Suite” are Peaceful Poppies …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

For the past two days, I have been sharing cards created using the Peaceful Poppies and today we’re going to step it up a bit and show you even more of this amazing product suite.  Let me start by sharing a short video … Grab a cup of coffee and join me as we discover the Peaceful Poppies suite …..

You can take your paper crafting to the next level with the Peaceful Poppies Suite by Stampin’ Up!  The Peaceful Poppies Suite has a lot to offer …  It comes with two stamp and die bundles, designer series paper, multiple embellishments, and beautiful poppy elements. Each piece is designed for coordination and beauty to give you an amazing crafting experience.

Can’t wait to show you what I have created ….

This little beauty highlights the stamps and dies of the product suite but there is so much more.  The Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle includes two stamp set and die bundles for even more fun! The outline poppy images accented by watercolor effects allow you to choose from an array of inspiring coordinating colors to design your projects.

Whether you’re sending a birthday card, your deepest sympathy, or celebrating a friendship, your handmade creations are sure to shine as bright as a field of poppies. And here is a close up of a field of poppies, the border of my card …

There is also a close up of my greeting which was punched with the Timeless label punch. Once it’s cut, you can slide it into the punch and create a totally different look.

The fun little die cut design is a flutter of flowers that I just used to create interest to draw the eye to the circle of poppies.

This is such a fun product suite to play “create” with! And the sentiments are so sweet …. “Life is better with a friend like you”.

Thank you for checking back in today, it is appreciated.

Have a wonderful day ~

Simply Sunday: Peaceful Poppies

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and you have set aside some “peaceful” time for yourself. Yesterday I shared a card using the Peaceful Poppies bundle.  Today, I will be sharing a few cards that will show how easy it is to create with our Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper.

First, let me share a quick video revealing all the beautiful paper designs …

Stunning, don’t you agree!?  The patterns are so pretty it was hard to pick just 2 for today’s cards. Let me start with the most obvious … the tall water colored poppies.  This one seems to be everyone’s favorite and it’s easy to see why …..

The color combination that I used is one of my favorite; Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss.  These two colors compliment each other so well and they really make the designer paper shine in all it’s glory. A simple  greeting is all you need, and I used the Peaceful Moments Stamp set from the Peaceful Poppies suite and punched with the Timeless Label Punch.

The next pattern is one of my favorites … the field of poppies. Poppies were always a favorite flower of mine, even as a child … my mom had them in the garden, the color is so bold and beautiful.

The poppy also commemorates the sacrifice of so many men and women who have given their lives fighting for their country.  Fitting that I used “sympathy” on this card, but it would be just as pretty as a birthday card.

The Pretty Label punch was used to punch out the sentiment, then I popped on a couple Peaceful Poppies Sequins to anchor the greeting.

Simple, simple cards … all you need is some beautiful designer paper and a couple of punches, that’s all it takes to create these pretty cards.

 

Thank you so very much for taking time out of your Sunday to join me and explore the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper.

I hope you continue to have an amazing day …  I will see you tomorrow with a card created using the Peaceful Poppies product suite.

Guest Stamper: Brenda M … Painted Poppies

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

The weekend has begun and I am in my craft room preparing some classes, cards for club and planning my upcoming retreat. Today I have a card to share with you that was made for our Stars team meeting swap by Brenda Morateck … one of my team members.

Brenda used the NEW Painted Poppies bundle. The Painted Poppies Stamp Set is inspired by a field of poppies and features beautiful line-art images you can fill in with your choice of coloring techniques.

Brenda did a color on color technique by stamping the poppy image in Poppy Parade ink onto Poppy Parade cardstock… then brought some color by stamping a background of Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry and then stamping the field of poppies across the top of it.

So pretty in it’s simplicity … So much more can be done when you add the coordinating dies. Create labels, tags, gorgeous poppies and leaves, a swirly frame, and more for handmade cards, tags, and other fun paper crafts using the Painted Labels Dies.

Thank you so very much for checking in with me today …

I hope you have a wonderful day
