My Dad.....

I will be away from my blog for some time. My Dad passed away yesterday morning and my Mom is not doing well. Thanks to everyone that sent prayers and thoughts for our family as my Dad made his journey to heaven with us by his side. I have a few posts scheduled ahead that you will see, for teams I am part of. I have a lot on my plate right now to take care of and will be back when I can.


My Dad suffered from severe COPD and a bad heart. I urge you this: if you are a smoker, know a smoker and also know someone who is a mechanic like my Dad was....work hard at trying to quit smoking, helping someone to quit smoking and take active measures to protect oneself working with diesel or other such chemicals that mechanics are exposed to. It could prolong their life.

Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!



Welcome to our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Our theme today is "Color It". Have you joined in with the Adult Coloring Books that are all the rave? Well today I am using the "Inside The Lines Designer Paper" that you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration. This designer paper reminds me of the Adult Coloring Books. Take a peek at my card:




I used our Watercolor Pencils to color the image with a Blender Pen. I colored with the pencils first, just adding a little bit of color and then spread the color with the Blender Pen. Notice how I added just a tint of light blue around the outside of all the images. It really makes the lined images pop:




Another thing to notice is my cute and shiny bumblebee. Once I had him all water-colored, I used my Fine-Tip Glue Pen and added a layer of glue over the whole bee. Allow to dry and it's rock hard and non-sticky. Neat!

Cupcakes & Carousels!

Have you seen the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit in the catalog? You may have missed it because the photo is so tiny. You'll find this kit on Page 9 of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog. So many accents & ribbon to play with. Take a peek:



I decided to use my kit pieces to create a nice looking birthday card. I added 1/2 of a Lace Doily and two pieces of the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper Stack in the mix:




Isn't the foil-embossed label pretty to stamp on? So perfect to add to my card front:. It was so much fun adding all of the accent pieces from the kit too:





Here are all of the supplies I used on my card today. Did you know that by clicking on the product photo's, you go straight to my Online Store? I would love to have you visit and order from me as your demonstrator!




And while shopping in my store, make sure you use the Host/Hostess Code for the month of February so you can pick some FREE items. I'll also send you a FREE card kit for the month!

I used my Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches to cut out lots and lots of butterflies! Notice the stamped background? This is also from one of the new product offerings from the brochure. The stamp set is called Make A Medallion. A quick way to add a subtle background before gluing the butterflies in place:

Merry Monday Challenge #236!



Good Morning Stampers and welcome to a new challenge at Merry Monday. This week Lori is asking for stockings on your Christmas cards. I hope you plan on playing along with us!




I started my card out by adding tone-on-tone holly & berries on my card base. I used Sahara Sand Ink on Sahara Sand Cardstock and added the sentiment with Real Red Ink.




I stamped my Soft Sky stocking first and overlapped it with a Real Red Stocking. All of the inked holly and berries on this layer were cut with the Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies and glued in place along with a cute little bow.

You're Sweet!

Stampin' Up! is the best company there is when it comes to coordinating products. My project for today proves that. I coordinated a stamp set, a framelits dies set and the designer paper to come up with this simple card:




Do you like my triple-decker ice cream cone? I stamped the image for each scoop on the Tasty Treats Designer Paper and cut out the shape using the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies. So much you can do with these dies, designer paper and coordinating stamp set.




The sentiment was stamped on a square measuring a little over 2" from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I even cut out a few cherries to embellish the sentiment layer and the ice cream cone. So fun!

Create With Connie & Mary!



Up In The Air is our theme for the Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary! Oh the possibilities and decisions....so many stamp sets I could have picked from the Occasions Catalog. I finally decided on Super Duper:




My focus was actually on the "YAY" sentiment. I wanted to make it look like the balloons were attached to a floating sentiment. The design and detail in each balloon gives this card a bright & cheery look doesn't it? I added a few balloons that I fussy-cut by hand and glued in place using Stampin' Dimensionals:




Here's the how-to:

  • Card Base: Chocolate Chip Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2". 
  • Layer #2: Rose Red Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card front.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 4-1/2" x 3-1/4". Stamp the YAY using Chocolate Chip Ink about 1" from the bottom. Add the smaller sentiment below the large sentiment using Wild Wasabi Ink. Stamp several balloons above the sentiments using Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight Inks. Place a Post-It note over the sentiments and even with the top to cover them and stamp the string image to each balloon, connecting the balloons to the sentiment. Remove Post-It note. Glue cardstock piece in place to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Stamp a few extra balloons on a scrap piece of Whisper White and fussy-cut. Glue in place over the balloon cluster using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:

  • Stamps: Super Duper
  • Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Whisper White
  • Inks: Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight
  • Tools: Stampin' Dimensionals
