New In Colors & Better Together …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared some sweet -n- simple cards that you can make with the new 2016-18 Stampin’ Up! In Colors and the Floral Affection Embossing Folder (set of 2), so today I thought I would “step it up” and create another set of cards using the other image in that set!

I also decided to feature the cardstock more on this card and use it for the base!

Yesterday’s cards were all made without a greeting, so today I have incorporated the “Better Together” stamp set! 

I love this stamp set because it not only has your greeting but it has verses for the inside as well! On the card below I used the verse that would normally be on the inside and used it at my “greeting” …

Then, I took the greeting and stamped it on the inside of my card.  There are no rules in stamping so you can do it however you choose!

Now … have you noticed that I have been changing up the ribbon as well? I used it differently on each of the 5 cards!

Oh yes … all of these greetings come from the same stamp set (and includes the verse for the inside as well). The Sugarplum is the last of my cards … one in each of the new 5 In Colors and each with their own greeting!!

I hope you enjoyed today’s showcase of cards and that it inspires you create. If you are looking for quick -n- easy cards to create that have a clean, pretty style, than today’s and yesterdays cards are for you.

I’d love to hear what “YOU” think about our new In Colors!  Just comment below 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Have a simply wonderful day!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Have you seen the incredible papers in the Sweet Dreams Designer Series Paper pack? They’re so cute and so versatile. The paper was designed for our occasions catalog’s suite of baby-themed products, but it could be used in so many ways. Here are a few that we had fun making!

Sweet Dreams DSP

Showcasing Embossing Folders with beautiful cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

So … what did you think about the cards I shared with you yesterday? Did you notice 2 new ones? Yes, I added two, never before seen cards!

Today I’d like to share the details of those cards with you. Let me start with the wedding card …

000_1967

I used the Beautifully Baroque folder on Pool Party card stock. The “doubled” butterfly is done with vellum paper and the new Butterfly Thinlits Dies. The addition of the pearls really makes the butterfly stand out.

The salutation comes from the stamp set “Big News” and was stamped in Pool Party.

The second card was the “Baby” card …

000_1970

This one is done in Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray and showcases the “Zig Zag” folder. The greeting comes from the “Celebrate Baby” stamp set. I love the combination of stamps that allow you to make many different types of baby cards.

I finished off the card by layering the flowers punched from the Boho Blossom punch.

Don’t forget … the folders are ON SALE through Monday, February 2nd. Click on any of the items below for more information.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you have a beautiful day ~

Celebrating Baby …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share another card we made at my Star’s Christmas Party (The Star’s are the lovely ladies that have joined the Stampin’ Up! family under me) It’s a sneak peek into the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs!

Our base color is Tempting Turquoise … my choice for a gender neutral card. Every now and then you will find expecting parents who still want to be surprised and do not want to know if it’s a boy or a girl!

000_1844

I used the very “fun” Celebrate Today stamp set from the new Occasions catalog … If you are one of my regular customers you should have received yours.. if you didn’t please email me so I can get it sent out to you! (email: lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com)

This is just the cutest stamp set and great for birthdays, babies, graduations and more! I know you ladies will come up with some fantastic ideas of your own too. It’s a “two-step” stamp set!

Now … I am really excited to share with you the coolest designer paper “Irresistibly Yours” Specialty Designer Series paper. The designer paper is white with glossy patterns on them so you can color it! I love, love, love this!!

000_1847

You can sponge it, as we did on this card, you can use your brayer, you can dye it by watercoloring with the Aqua Painters, or spritz it with color … you can even use the “masks” to create an alternate pattern as shown in the Sale-a-bration catalog. Yes … I said Sale-a-bration, which means you can get this awesome designer paper FREE with a qualifying purchase.

000_1844

The new year is right around the corner and so is Sale-a-bration! I can’t wait to stamp with you, and share some fabulous new products with you right here!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Have a super Saturday … it’s the last one this year!

Guest Stampers: Star’s Christmas Party!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you are doing well. I’m great … took the day off yesterday to spend it with my downline to celebrate the Holiday’s, stamp, eat, share ideas and relish the new catalogs!

One of the perks of being a demonstrator is being able to order the new products out of the “Occasions” and “Sale-a-bration” catalogs. I always make sure to order right away so we can look, touch, and play with the new items at the Christmas party.

Today I am going to share two of the cards from the party …. you’ll have to tune in during the week to see more.

First we’ll start with Barb’s card. Oh it just warms you up like a nice spring day … are you ready for spring yet?

000_1776

Barb used the “Everything Eleanor” stamp set for the focal point of her card. The colors are Pistachio Pudding and Wisteria Wonder … how pretty. The greeting comes from the “A Dozen Thoughts” stamp set and was highlighted by using the Large Oval and Scallop Oval punches.

 

Next we have Kathy’s card … a sweet card for baby!

000_1779

Kathy used the “Something for Baby” and coordinated it with the “Baby’s First” framelits. You can save 15% if you bundle the two of these! She also used “Label Love” for the greeting on the card.

This fun card used several punches to highlight the focal points of the card, and topped off with the heart border punch.

I will have a list of ingredients below for both cards.

Thank you for stopping by today … Have a great one!

Guest Stamper: Jenny F.

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’m sharing a card from my (side-line) stampin’ sister Jenny.  Side-line means that we joined Stampin’ Up! under the same demonstrator … so we’re like sisters!

Jenny’s card welcomes baby with a wonderfully neutral color pallet … which means you can use it for a boy or girl. She paired Pear Pizzazz with Smoky Slate … what a wonderful color combination!  The grays are very “hot” right now.

000_1394

The stamp set used to create this sweet card is the “Something for Baby” which coordinates withe the “Baby’s First” Framelit Dies.  Bundle them and save 15%.

Thanks for stopping by …

Hope your day is a wonderful one!
