Truckin’ Through the Trees

Here’s another sneak peek for you from the upcoming 2018 Holiday Catalog. As soon as I saw the Festive Farmhouse suite, I knew I had to have it! This card features the image of the truck, having just been loaded with the perfect Christmas tree to take home for the family to decorate it. I love the coordinating die cuts, which include the truck and the tree. So much easier and faster than fussy-cutting. And let’s talk for a moment about the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine. I could not get over how soft it is! And I love that it comes with 3 colors that coordinate with the suite – Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, and Very Vanilla. This stamp set also includes a house and several sentiments with coordinating dies. I chose to use the die with the adorable stitching around the edge for the sentiment. It makes such a nice border. There are so many possibilities with this set and I will definitely be sharing more ideas with you soon.

The Joy of Sets – New Catalogue Blog Hop August 2018

Banner
I am so excited to participate in my first blog hop! There is a wonderful International group on Facebook called The Joy of Sets and everyone is welcome to join! You have hopped to my site from Alejandra Gomez’s and next up after me is Angie McKenzie’s. You can click on the arrows at the bottom of the blog post to continue on your hoppy way. This month’s topic is anything new from the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog. I have used two new stamp sets, one new color, one new ribbon and a new framelits set…such fun!

A coworker asked me to make a Birthday card for her friend…who just happens to be a Stampin’ Up demonstrator like me.  I know this lovely Birthday lady, as our daughters were on the same travel soccer team together a few years ago. As soon as I sat down to make a card, the creative juices flowed freely. This is the first time I inked up the Abstract Impressions stamp set and I am in love! It’s just so pretty!

Below is a close up shot of the gorgeous Poppy Parade Mini Striped Ribbon…and as you look at the photo, perhaps you’ll notice the added stitching on the Flirty Flamingo cardstock strip, complements of one of the decorative embossing dies in the Stitched Labels Framelits. That collection of framelits also includes the beautiful framed piece with striking detail as well.

JOS Abstract Details Close Up
This photo of the inside of the card shows how perfectly the sentiment in Detailed with Love coordinates with the Abstract Impressions set. And we pull it all together with a matching stamped envelope.

Elliott’s Awesome Big Sister Zoey!

As you can guess from the title, we have a new member in our family – my great nephew, Elliott Patrick. He is practically perfect in every way! And he has an awesome big sister, Zoey! I made a congratulations card for my niece and her husband, but I wanted Zoey to feel extra special and get a card just for her. I thought the Z behind the unicorn would be a cute detail. It’s difficult to see in the photo, but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the entire unicorn as well. The inside sentiment is “And an Awesome Big Sister!” that I typed up on my computer and printed in Mint Macaron. She’s 2 ½ years old, so it must be all about Miss Zoey!

Rooted in Blissful Nature

There are still a few days left for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion on select Designer Series Paper (see list at the end of the post). I just opened my pack of the Nature’s Poem paper and it is so gorgeous! I am thrilled that Blackberry Bliss was brought out of retirement to become a core color – the richness of it pairs perfectly with lighter colors. These double-sided papers are the perfect complement to the Rooted in Nature bundle. What’s super fun about the dies in this are the inclusion of embossing dies. Take a closer look at the die cut leaves on the card. I ran the cardstock through the Big Shot twice – once to cut the outline and a second time with an embossing die for texture. You definitely need the Big Shot Embossing Mats for this card. Wonderful effect! This card is the one I made as my thank you to my club members. I included a card in each of their orders. I always want them to know I’m thankful for them!

Garden Impressions Day 4

Today is my final day of highlighting the Garden Impressions 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper Stack. I thought the subtlety of Soft Sea Foam as the background color would help balance the boldness of the Melon Mambo roses. This sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set is the perfect counter-balance of whimsy. As you look back over the past few days, you will notice that all the cards use not only the same Designer Series Paper, but also the same ribbon and I took a mix-and-match approach with the Stitched All Around bundle of stamps and dies as well as the Enjoy Life and Rooted in Nature stamp sets and the Layering Ovals Framelits.  With just a few tools, the options are endless!

If you missed the previous posts, you can see the cards here for Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

Garden Impressions Day 3

Are you in love with the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack yet? The card I’m sharing for Day 3 uses all the same products as yesterday’s card, but with Pacific Point cardstock in place of Soft Sea Foam. I am in love with the font on all the sentiments in the Enjoy Life stamp set and this particular one is simply beautiful.

Garden Impressions Day 2

Today’s card shows off the sweet side of the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack. The pinks and oranges are positively lovely with the Soft Sea Foam background and pop of boldness with the Shaded Spruce leaves. The font of the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set is flawless with the roses and fits perfectly in the die cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits. Shaded Spruce has easily become my favorite new Core Color shade of green.
