Filled With Love

Hi Stampers!

This will be a very short post to show you I'm getting started on my Valentine's treats early....aren't they the cutest?  Thanks to Paper Pumpkin (Stampin' Up!'s monthly kit), these treats are quickly assembled and really darling....who would not enjoy receiving them?....well, no one I know!

I haven't attempted any alternative projects with this kit, as yet....seems a shame not to use all of this sweetness as treats!

Is it a Lemon?

Hi Stampers!

Well, yes it IS a lemon!....A Happy Thing lemon!  The new stamp set (A Happy Thing) seems to be so popular since Sale-A-Bration started...maybe because it offers a chance to use Blendability markers.....

The only two colors in this card (besides the message) are Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi.  I even stamped the image in Wild Wasabi...did you know there are quite a few Stampin' Up! Classic ink colors that are compatible with Blendabilities?  At first we thought we could only use Memento Black or the Blendability color would "run", but No!  Below are the colors you can use with any Blendability marker...

Classic Stampin' Pads
Always Artichoke
Baked Brown Sugar
Blushing Bride
Calypso Coral
Coastal Cabana
Crisp Cantaloupe
Crumb Cake
Crushed Curry
Daffodil Delight
Garden Green
Hello Honey
Marina Mist
Melon Mambo
Lost Lagoon
Old Olive
Pear Pizzazz
Pink Pirouette
Pistachio Pudding
Pool Party
Pumpkin Pie
Sahara Sand
Smoky Slate
So Saffron
Soft Sky
Tangelo Twist
Tangerine Tango
Tempting Turquoise
Wild Wasabi
Wisteria Wonder

And take notice that the Wild Wasabi Blendabilities Markers I used on the image leaves are new in the Occasions Catalog!

The background paper is also from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is called Irresistibly Yours...really it is beautiful all on its own, but if you want it to POP...just color over it with a sponge, dauber, brayer, or direct to paper ink (ink pad to the paper).  Then wipe it with a paper towel or even Kleenex and watch the shiny images stand out!

I love the look of the Tea Lace Paper Doily under the image!

I'm All Shook Up!

Hi to all!

I know I'm "late" with the Paper Pumpkin December kit (All Shook Up), but I've been involved with some family changes, in addition to watching over a small renovation in my kitchen during the month of January!  You've heard the saying..."the faster I go, the behinder I get?"  Well, that's me!

I had to postpone my usual group of Paper Pumpkin ladies so we will need to work on two kits instead of one...but for now, I'm going to show you a couple of All Shook Up cards....one is straight from the kit and one is an alternative card.

I LOVE these kits!  The products are exclusive to each kit....with great stamps and embellishments...of course, all matching the regular Stampin' Up! products, so you can easily create alternative projects.  Best part?  The projects are as easy and quick as you care to make them.  

Below is the kit card...there are other messages, but isn't this so cute?  It doesn't get much better than die-cut words and a Shaker card, too!



Here is a closer look at the background within the shaker...


Now for the alternative card....Smoky Slate is a prominent color in this particular kit and is accented by bright colors.  I used a Smoky Slate card base and some silver foil card stock behind the negative strip left by punching out the Smoky Slate stars (the stars in the shaker card).  Then the Coastal Cabana sequins (from the kit) gave the card a little pop!

Crazy About You

Hi to all,

This entry for the Pals Paper Arts #237 Sketch Challenge has given me an opportunity to use the new Occasions Catalog Stamp set...Crazy About You.  This set is so versatile for pairing up different words...it has 30 different words and phrases and multiple possibilities for combinations! 
 
You can also buy it in a bundle (15% discount) with even more words...Hello You Thinlit Die words...four of them. Are you at a loss for words yet?  

I didn't mention the bonus image in this stamp set is two flowers and one stem of leaves.  We know we can't have too many flower stamps!

After stamping the flower with Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight...then fussy-cutting and popping the flower up on Dimensionals, I placed a Calypso Coral Candy Dot in the middle. The color-matching DSP is Flowerpot.


The tiny sweet flower next to the word, You, is from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog stamp set, Simply Wonderful.

It's Your Day!

Hi Stampers!

The Paper Players Challenge #228 is to create a CAS card, making the sentiment the focal point.  


There are so many large sentiments these days!  And they do make it a little easier to create a quick card, don't they?  I chose the photopolymer stamp set, Big On You from the Occasions Catalog.  The name is so appropriate...the messages are huge!  

I always need birthday cards, but this message could actually be used in several instances such as graduation, promotion, a happy event....


Heat embossing the message in gold really makes it stand out and match the gold flecks in the Birthday Bash Specialty DSP.  This DSP has two Specialty papers that have designs with gold foil shine in the design....Love!

This is supposed to be a CAS card, but I couldn't resist the sequins!

It's a Dotty Day!

Hello and Happy Monday!

Are you a polka-dot lover?  Me, too!  I was shocked not too long ago when someone told me she really dislikes polka-dots...What?

The first 2015 challenge at SUO #114 (Stampin' Up! Only) is to make a card with dots...of any kind.

Well, I didn't have to go far to find the first stamp set I thought of...Polka-Dot Pieces...Perfect!
Alongside some DSP from Sweet Taffy, my card has dots for "days".

I love the sweet, curvy message...and I haven't used Rich Razzleberry ink for some time!

I'm crazy for butterflies lately...must be a yearning for spring!  I matched up this butterfly with one of the DSP layers and painted the pearls with a Rich Razzleberry Blendability.


The flower fits the 1 3/4" Scalloped Circle Punch quite nicely...I "daubered" the edges to give it more definition.

All in all, a bright and cheerful card for a good friend!
