Snowflakes in July

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful day yesterday! I picked up my sister Eileen and escaped for a little day trip to Baraboo! We did the Circus World Museum and the Merrimac Ferry … it was a good day!

Sunday I shared my Daisy card with you and said I would show you how versatile the Delightful Daisy Designer paper could be, well, I teamed it up with the amazing Colorful Seasons bundle from the Color Theory Suite and here is the result …

At first glance at the designer paper I got the feeling of a pretty snowfall … the beautiful new Tranquil Tide color, adds to the softness of a snowfall. Kind of brought me back to the days when I was a kid and loved to watch the snow first fall.

The greeting comes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and was stamped in Tranquil Tide Ink. It was cut out with one of the oval shapes from the Stitched Framelits dies.

I made the snowflakes from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  When cutting from the Glimmer paper, I cut from the back (not the glittery side) because it cuts through easier. The new Faceted Gems were added to the snowflakes for even more sparkle and texture.

Another simple layout but the outcome is beautiful. With the heat wave that will soon be upon us … the thought of pretty snowflakes might be a little comforting!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by today!

Simply Sunday: Carols of Christmas

Hello Stampin Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you a card from our “Carols of Christmas” stamp set that will be available to our stampin’ friends as an early release on August 1st.

Demonstrators have been able to pre-order this set since the 1st of July so we can prepare great samples / classes for you… mine is on it’s way!

This is a perfect card when you want to step it up a bit with die cuts but not have to spend all day on one card.  I would cut my trees and greeting out at the same time!

The greeting itself is done simply by coloring the stamp with the colors you want and then stamp. A little strip of glimmer paper and a bow out of bakers twine and you’re done!!

My initial “Carols of Christmas” Class has already filled but I would be happy to schedule a second class for those who are interested.

Thanks for stopping in to see me today.

Have a wonderful day ~

Simply Sunday: Retiring Hero’s

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s that time of year… the Retirement List is out! It’s so sad to see some of our favorites leave, but you know there are some great new stamp sets coming!

One of my favorite stamp sets retiring it the Ronald McDonald House stamp set … “My Hero”. This stamp set touches my heart, because for every stamp set I sell … Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald houses that host families so they can be near their children in the hospital with life threatening illnesses. I can’t image having to go through that, I’ve been very blessed to have healthy kids and grandkid … that’s why it touches me so.

This stamp set is so versatile it should be in everyone’s stamp collection!!  I have 7 card samples for you from this one stamp set! Let’s begin with a card that wishes you well (and the little umbrella ties in with April Showers).

000_3521

The umbrella in the “My Hero” stamp set coordinates with the Umbrella Weather Framelits on page 193 of our annual catalog.

Our next card is easy to make and I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to make my eggs and the Layering Square Framelits for my greeting.  Once you have these framelits … you’ll wonder how you ever made cards without them!

000_3519

This is the card that bears the name of our stamp set “My Hero”. Here I pulled out all the punches to create this card. The greeting stamp coordinates with the Best Badge punch and the Banner Triple punch was used for the banners … let’s not forget our stars!

000_3508

Now here’s a fun one … I this card I used the pumpkin face to adorn the lines cut from the “Swirly Scribbles Framelits”. Gently use the end of your scissors to curl the free ends.

000_3517

I used the Heart stamp to create this cute little Valentine’s card. The pretty paper comes from the “Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper” and the Sweetheart Heart punch.

000_3527

 Next, our cute little “Celebrate” card. The designer paper is the “Festive Birthday”.  Again I used the Banner punch to create my banners and the band in the center was embossed with the Festive embossing folder to give it some texture and a little jazz!

000_3529

And last but not least is our Christmas card.  I used the “This Christmas” Specialty paper which is layered over the “Holly” embossed cardstock. Our greeting was punched out and layered over the Metallic Foil Doily and topped off with a Star from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

000_3515

I wanted to share all of these cards at once so that you could see how versatile this stamp set really is. You can be a HERO, when you purchase the “My Hero” stamp set … $3.00 goes to the Ronald McDonald Houses throughout the US. It’s a easy way to help children fighting for their lives by keeping their families close to them.

Let me know if you have any questions or need help ordering this stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by …

Stay healthy and have a nice day!
