Eclectic Wisteria Twist

The more I use Lemon Lime Twist, the more I love it…and it is so pretty paired with the soft Wisteria Wonder. This card features Designer Series Paper from the first Sale-a-Bration brochure, which is currently available.  The stamp set is from the Sale-a-Bration second release, which will be available for you to earn from February 16 – March 31. It is such a versatile set with all the background pieces. Definitely a must-have!

Southern Blends

These cards feature a stamp set in the new Occasions catalog that I think is easily overlooked. It’s on page 49; opposite of the Waterfront set, which is getting a lot of (rightly deserved) attention.  I bought the set knowing that I wanted to use the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers. I also popped on a few of the Glitter Epoxy Shapes. I thought the iridescence of them would help to highlight the Clear Wink of Stella shimmer that I added to the flowers. It’s so hard to get that shimmer to show up in the photo. You’ll just have to take my word for it. The yellow one is my favorite. Which is yours?

Sweet Baby Bear UN-challenge

I had so much fun making this card. I’m entering it in FOUR challenges! I titled this UN-challenge, though, because it all came together so quickly and sweetly. When I read the Global Design Project #GDP123 – New Beginnings, I thought a baby card would be good. Then I read the TGIF Color Challenge #TGIFC145 – Blushing Bride, Powder Pink, and Sweet Sugarplum, I just knew the baby card would be great. Then I saw the Freshly Made Sketches FMS322 and knew it would be the perfect layout. And to round it all out is Watercooler Wednesday WWC155 – Anything Goes. I don’t think I’ve ever had a card come together as swiftly as this one. The color palette is adorable and I had to go with the Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon (Sale-a-Bration) because pink and gray are gorgeous together! I won’t bore you with how many pink and gray outfits I had back in 5th grade. Thanks for letting me play along!

Embossed Picture Perfect Candles

The Picture Perfect Party suite on pages 4 and 5 of the Occasions catalog is so colorful and happy! This suite sure was named appropriately – the Designer Series Paper stack features double sided 6” x 6” paper with photographic images on one side! I loved the candles and wanted to preserve how long they were. I also wanted to use the “Happy” embossing folder from the Celebrations Duo. The bright colors coordinate perfectly and the Tutti Frutti sequins from the Tutti Frutti Suite on pages 28 and 29 have 3 colors that are also in the Picture Perfect Party suite! One card uses a Berry Burst sequin and one uses Pool Party. I think I’m liking the Pool Party one a little more. Which one do you like better?

Tailored Fresh Pears

Today I’m sharing with you the thank you cards for my Birthday gifts. It’s been awhile since I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board and I sure have missed it! It’s so fun making envelopes to match your cards. Here’s a set of 6 cards with envelopes that only use 2 sheets of cardstock and 2 sheets of Designer Series Paper (DSP), along with some scraps of neutral. The card bases are cut 3” x 8” and scored at 4”. This adorable size requires a 6” square piece of DSP to make an envelope. So, we’re using one full piece and half of the second for the envelopes. That leaves half a sheet to cut front layers. These cards feature some retired products, but I just love pears (especially Anjou!) and wanted to use the lovely Fruit Stand DSP.

Tailored Fresh Pears

Stamp Set:  Fresh Fruit*
Cardstock:  Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper:  Fruit Stand*
Ink:  Pear Pizzazz
Lovelies:  Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon*, Pearl Basic Jewels
Tools:  Tailored Tag Punch, Washi Label Punch*, Envelope Punch Board

Playful Bermuda Celebration

I am all about the challenges this week…today’s card is my entry for SUO Challenge 192: Fun With Just One Color! I chose Bermuda Bay since it’s such a vibrant, fun color. This card features debossing with the Celebrations Duo embossing folder. I bought the Happy Celebrations stamp set with the coordinating folders quite a while ago…and kicking myself because this is the first time I’ve played with them. The debossed effect is super cool! I made my own background with the bubbles stamp from the Playful Backgrounds set and topped it off with some Brights Enamel Shapes and retired ribbon.

Here’s a look at the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders, to help give a better idea of the debossed look:

Epic Rainbow of Sneakers

Today I got my hands on the Stampin’ Blends…and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Definitely a learning curve, but one I’m willing to take the time to master! Below is an assortment of adorable 3” x 3” cards.  I used standard Whisper White for the stamped piece, but decided to use the Thick Whisper White for the card base. It really makes a difference.  I wanted to give several Blends colors a try and thought the sneakers would be fun for my club member thank you cards (I like to give a thank you to each of them with every order). I feel like Epic Celebrations isn’t getting the recognition it deserves…it’s a darling set and I can’t wait to make a card with the headphones and guitar! It’s part of the Sale-a-Bration going on right now, so the only way you can get your hands on this  set is with a minimum purchase of $50 and the stamp set is FREE!

Epic Rainbow of Sneakers

Stamp Set:  Epic Celebrations
Cardstock:  Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pool Party, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Thick Whisper White
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Stampin’ Blends:  Bermuda Bay, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango
Lovelies: Brights, Regals & Metallic Enamel Shapes
