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.

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.

There are No Mistakes in Stamping …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share a cute card that I created from a “boo boo” that I made during my Color Your Season Class on Thursday night.  On our first card we stamped the floral image and colored it, on the third card we use two of the dies to create some layers …. however, I cut the die shapes out, out of my floral image Oh my …  so I created a form of the eclipse card!!

Can you see the beautiful layering? From a boo-boo it turned out pretty cool … lol.  My card front it popped up with the dimensionals, the second layer is adhered directly to the base of my card and the center is popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals as well… giving this card a very unique look.

It was created on Whisper White cardstock and was stamped in Momento Ink using the floral image from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set. I used the New set of Watercolor Pencils to color in my image and the blender pen to give it a more watercolor effect. Our class also used the Stampin’ Blends and Aqua Painters to create cards with this bundle and the new Watercolor Pencils (they are amazing) this whole bundle is amazing!!

Our colors of the Watercolor Pencils were Gorgeous Grape, Night of Navy, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green. Oh yes, and Crushed Curry for our flower centers.  Simply color just like you did as a kid, then use the Blender Pen to soften the look!  After layering the pieces I added the new Glitter Dots to the card to take up just a little of the white space.

See … there really are no mistakes in stamping, just opportunities unfolding!! Hope you enjoyed todays card and that it inspires you to create outside of the box. Or at least, not to throw your boo-boo’s away!!

Thanks for checking in on my today, tomorrow I will share my “Sneak Peek” into the holiday catalog with you.

Have yourself an awesome day!!

Simply Sunday: Christmas Season

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So what did you think of the sneak peeks? Oh my … this is an awesome catalog, and I have one coming to you! I’m trying to wait patiently for my pre-order to come … then I can play!  Meanwhile ~ We have the exciting “Share Your Season” Promotion and I have another beautiful card to share with you today!!

Today’s card celebrates the Christmas season (Thursday I shared my Autumn card using the watercolor pencils and blender pen). It’s time to share how the fabulous Stampin’ Blends markers work with this stamp set and coordinating framelit dies.

I began with the middle sized frame in the die set and cut it out of Whisper White. I then stamped the spray of Holly near the bottom (fits right in) then turned it 180 and stamped it again.  When I colored the leaves I started with the Old Olive Light first then just added a dash of the Old Olive dark on the center line of the leaf and then went back over with the Light to blend it in.

A touch of Real Red on the holly berries and Daffodil Delight on the sprigs and your coloring is complete! I added just a hint of the Wink of Stella to give it a little glitz.

The card base is Old Olive cardstock and I created a focal point with a swatch of 3″ x 4 1/4″ Under the Mistletoe Designer Series paper and a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Real Red mat. Then our greeting was simply popped up onto the card and your done!! Simple and Sweet … no hassle, just a fun and easy coloring project.

So here are the two cards I made to far with the Blended Seasons Stamp set and Stitched Season framelits, and if you like these …

You won’t want to miss the amazing cards that we will be making (includes envelopes) in my Color Your Season class. I still have a couple spots left. RSVP today: 262-334-1009

Autumn Card with Watercolor Pencils …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We are past the halfway point of the week and on the road to the weekend!!  Wooo Hoo! I can’t wait to share this beautiful card with you today … I created this card for my Stars Team meeting this past Saturday to highlight the beautiful Color of Seasons …

Because Stampin’ Up! is also offering a brand new set of Watercolor Pencils as a coordination product with this bundle I just had to play!! Who doesn’t love the ease of the Watercolor pencils when you want several different colors on your Autumn leaves?

Well … let me just show you, a picture is worth a thousand words (or should I say oooooh and aaaaah!!)

I stamped the images with the Momento Ink and began with the Garden Green Watercolor pencil. I used it along the vein in the center of the leaves, then I just colored in some Crushed Curry, then some Cajun Craze and finally a little Cherry Cobbler near the edges.  Each leave was a little different.

Once I was done with the Watercolor Pencils … I used my blender pen to move and blend the color.  Wow … the pencils are definitely artist quality pencils, they blend so easily and looked beautiful in spots where I hardly blended at all!

I did have to fussy cut my leaves out, but I must say that while sitting around the table with a group of friends (my Stars Team members) and just chatting & catching up, before we knew it, they were all cut out!!

After that we added just a touch of the Wink of Stella … and we did that because it really brought together the colored leaves and the die cut leaf. (The die comes with the bundle!)

Our greeting comes from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set (see below) and was punched out using the Pretty Label punch! Popped it up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves too. The background was done with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder … the autumn leaves look so good against it!!

I can’t stop playing with this bundle … it can be used all year long and for any occasion (Even Weddings – there is a bell with a coordinating die)!! Stampin’ Up!’s® Blended Seasons Stamp Set, coordinating Framelits™ Dies, and Watercolor Pencils are perfect for every season of creating! Plus, save 10% when you buy the stamp set and Framelits in a bundle! But don’t wait—these exclusive products are only available until August 31 while supplies last.

Because the Blended Season Stamp Set and Stitched Season dies are “Limited Time Only” offer … I am hosting classes that will highlight the “Seasons”.  The first class has filled so I am adding another class on Thursday the 9th of August …

Your cards will include the envelopes … All you need to bring is your favorite adhesive.  Three spots have already been reserved so don’t wait / Contact me right away to reserve your spot.  Call 262-334-1009

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me …

Have a wonderful day ~
