I’ll Bee Yours …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … I did it this time!  On Tuesday night I had a meeting at work and we decided to walk to the meeting place and back, just about the time I got back to my car, my knee gave out. Woooh … haven’t felt that much pain since I herniated the disc in my back!

I actually went to the doctor and he put me on bed rest (which means I can’t get into my stamping room!!) and steroids. He believes it’s arthritis and that I had a flair up.  So … please be patient with me while I work through this. I’m going to do my best to keep you informed through my posts.

Meanwhile, Paper Pumpkin’s first kit of 2020 is all about L-O-V-E. Whether you want handmade favors for Valentine’s Day, a bridal shower, or a remarkably romantic wedding, this kit has your number: 20 treat bags, 10 mini cards and envelopes, and embellishments. It’s everything you need to celebrate your favorite friendships and love stories. So, make it a “LOVE”-ly year with Paper Pumpkin! Watch this how-to video to see the I’ll Bee Yours kit in action.

I love those little bee’s and can’t wait to get my kit in the mail … Maybe it will be here tomorrow, my kids will bring it in and I can play!!

Cheers Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card for you … straight out of the Annual Catalog!!  I’m sharing this card from my website and it was created with the Time for Tea Bundle found on pages 14 and 15.  You will find an entire product suite on these pages.

Our color pallet includes Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand,  Whisper White and Vellum Cardstock … also included is the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The images were stamped and colored with our Watercolor Pencils before pulling out the Bigshot and cutting out the images with the coordinating die set.  So simply yet so cute!  Did you catch that touch of ribbon behind our greeting? It’s a fun way to highlight your greeting (and use up some scraps!)

I know that the Occasions catalog is amazing … but let’s not forget how many beautiful stamp sets and bundles we have in the Annual Catalog.  And … It’s still Sale-a-bration! We have a few days left, don’t miss out!

Thank you for stopping back today. Enjoy your Monday

Simply Sunday … Spring Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share a touch of “spring” with you. I have two cards that I created using the Sheer Perfection Vellum… I’m so sad this will be gone in a couple of days! I teamed up the Vellum with the “Crazy About You” stamp set and the coordinating “Flower Medallion Punch” on both cards.

000_2106

 

My first card fits well with my “Simply Sunday’s” theme ….

000_2110

Simple flowers with a touch of Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie from the Brights Collection of Markers. The vellum is placed over our Whisper White with a Basic Gray mat … popped up on a Daffodil Delight card base. Add a simple ribbon and your card is complete.

000_2112

Inside I added a bit more of the vellum and created a greeting from the “Crazy about You” stamp set. The stamp set is great for creating your own sayings because it has so much to choose from.

137137G

My second card has a few more steps but still easy to recreate. I again began with the vellum and colored it in with an Old Olive marker … also from the Brights Collection. Because it takes a bit to dry, I dipped it in clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. This gave it some added texture and really made the green pop!

 000_2113

The vellum was mounted on Old Olive and then matted on the Basic Gray, and secured to the Old Olive card base. I used the Oval Collection Framelits for the greeting and topped off the flower with a rhinestone.

000_2114

I finished off the inside with a couple of left over strips of cardstock and stamped the flower in the corner.  There are more great patterns in the vellum, and if you need to put in an order, do it before the Sale-a-bration period ends on Tuesday … don’t miss out.

As for my Stampin’ Tip … I wanted to show you a neat way I was shown to store my Photopolymer sets.

I took the clear sheet with the images on & slide it into my stamp case … make sure that the words are “backwards”, then you can place your photopolymer stamps directly onto the case. They stick just fine.

      000_2107       000_2108

With this set I needed to use both sides of the case, so I slide in a piece of plain white computer paper to block the writing that is on the sleeve.  You could do this to both sides if you like the brighter image on the left.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to visit my blog.

Have a wonderful day ~
