GSF Blog Hop- We Love Bundles

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy!

I am actually very thankful for today’s TGIF…it’s been the busiest, least amount of sleep week, I have had in a very long time! 

And, it’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop time, to boot! Whoopee! This month our theme is Bundles. There are so many to choose from and I was having a hard time choosing. Then, as I ran out of time in this crazy week…I realized I had this lovely card we did for Hostess Club and I had not had a chance to share it with you yet.

I chose the Peaceful Moments Bundle! It is part of the Peaceful Poppies Suite…an amazing suite that I heartily recommend! So versatile!

I wanted to teach my Hostess club how to make a Double Z card, but got confused by my own written directions that I wrote down while watching JanB on Youtube almost 2 years ago. I went back to Youtube and ended up finding this one with a larger second z and I really like it. Wendy Cranford has a Youtube video on how to make it. She used different colors than I did, though. That was a little too much Poppy Parade for my tastes.

Supplies and measurements are listed below…so, here it is:

Now on to Jan Musselman to see what Bundle she used and the creation she came up with. Enjoy the hop!

ICS – Beautiful Bundles

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy!

It’s time for the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! It’s always fun to see what these talented ladies are up to! This month we are showcasing the new Bundles in the Annual Catalog. I really like how Stampin’ Up! has organized them and put them up front to find right away! Have you seen that?! Just love it!

Let’s get started! I chose the Daisy Lane Bundle to showcase this month. I paired it with a few other parts of different stamp sets since I mainly used the daisy stamps and the daisy punches to create this Birthday Pop Up box card for a class that a customer requested for her and a couple friends. She neglected to tell me they were newbies and had never crafted, not even made a card before. Wowza! What a project to introduce them to card making! 😮

Here is what they made…

1565214603471.jpg

and here are the sides…

I love how fresh and bright it turned out! This is my 3rd pop-up box card and I think there will be many more!

The supplies are listed below and if you would like a PDF of the instructions, please comment below and I will get it to you! Remember to check out the supplies that I used below!

Now you can hop on over to Terri Takashige and see what wonderful Bundle she chose to showcase today! Have fun hopping!

Belated Thanks!

Howdy!

Have you ever gotten sidetracked and forgotten to send Thank Yous to people you know you really should have? Yes, me too! Even as a card maker, I sometimes don’t get the cards out that I should! Well, today I got super motivated to make the Thank You cards for the baseball sponsors…yeah, I know…baseball regular season ended a month ago! Shame on me! I have had the sponsor team pictures sitting in my Creation Studio for awhile, then I bought the frames, then just needed to make the cards…and then got sidetracked with life.

I am taking responsibility for my tardiness, though…and made my first Belated Thank You cards! I used the team colors for each card and a simple sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!

This one was great for using some of my old baseball stamps…yeah, sorry, these stamps are long since retired…they are from before clear and photopolymer stamps were evenaround and are still on wood! They are Stampin’ Up! though!

Here are my cards…

1563472494452.jpg

I used Aqua Painters to make the swishy water color bottoms of the cards. I like the subtleness of it! I used the two main colors of the teams for the thanks and the swish. Gray is obviously a common color theme for our teams. They all wear gray pants. I like the colorful words vs the words being in gray and the swish being in color.

I know…lots of white for this girl! And no distressing the edges…Wait! What? Yes, no distressing! I like them! What do you think? Feel free to leave me a comment about them! I love comments!

Below I will list the supplies and how I used them. That’s it for today! Off to the mountains for some camping and fishing! WooHoo! See you next week!

Balloons for You!

Howdy!

My Boyz (husband and son) are playing on the computers with long distance friends, so I am playing in my Creation Studio! Fun kind of evening for us! I sorta miss them though…we used to do this all in the same room until we changed the Guest Room into the Computer Cave so that I had a whole room for classes. I love the room to myself most of the time and especially for holding classes…but then on evenings like this, I miss hearing their funny conversations and laughter. I could probably have the door open and hear them, but since I am listening to KLove, I figured I would leave it closed. It’s a Catch-22. 

I found some fun Challenges to get my creative juices flowing…

For my colors I found a fun combo here:

And for my theme, I went to: 

Probably coulda found a sketch and made it a triple…but, that might be going too far. LOL

I’m satisfied with the card I came up with. I had a particular person in mind for this one. I missed sending him a birthday card and a Father’s Day card…ugh, pathetic, I know! So, this one will be in tomorrow’s mail to my One and Only, Best Daddy! (Mom, if you are reading this, don’t tell him!)

The supplies I used on this card will be listed at the end of the post. Here is the card 

1561695675873.jpg

And here is the inside…think he will forgive me?

1561695797448.jpg

That’s it for tonight! Have some Blog Hops coming up next week, so time to switch gears and get focused on them…see you again soon!

Supplies Used (click on what you like and it will take you straight to my online store)
  • Smoky Slate: cardstock for card base and front sentiment punch; ink for Crackle Paint stamp on base and Love on heart balloon

  • Blueberry Bushel: cardstock for balloons, thanks inside; ink for sentiments front and inside, plus distressing the front punch and the balloons
  • Black Bakers twine (retired, sorry, white just was not going to do it for me)
  • Stamp Sets and coordinating dies are Well Said, Meant To BeCrackle Paint
  • Punches are Balloon Bouquet, Tailored Tag, and Banner Triple for the inside banner

Around the Corner w/ Tropical Chic

Howdy, Everyone!

Wow! It’s summer vacation! Yay! However, this is not my usual kind of summer because I got a new teaching job! I started teaching English to Chinese children online. It is lots of fun! I think of it as being a host of my own children’s show! It is really boosting the creative side of my brain! Which means you’ll probably be seeing more posts on here…not a bad thing, right?! That’s the best kind of summer!

I whipped this card up faster than I think I have ever done! Creative juices have been flowing! Love these fun bright colors!

Fusion was the inspiration for the colors…

And here is my card…I did a combination of the colors from the VW and the sketch.

I started with a card base in Daffodil Delight. Created a Whisper White rectangle with the Stitched dies. The stamp set is Tropical Chic with the matching dies for my main focal images. The flowers are in Mango Melody and Melon Mambo while the leaves are in Bermuda Bay.

Then I used the ‘Hello There’ sentiment from the Around the Corner stamp set. I think this might be the first time using both of these sets. Glad they carried over into the new Annual catalog!

I’m truly loving the feeling these bright summer colors give me!! We’re still waiting on summer weather here in Montana! Lots of rain and cool days. Definitely not like in Arizona, where it’s triple digits! Don’t really miss that, just would like some days warmer than 50-60s! 😁

That’s all for today…I’ll be back sooner than usual! I have some graduation cards to share!

Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Hugs from Shelli

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o
Howdy Folks!
Guess what time it is?! Blog Hop time with the fabulous ladies of the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities group! We are bringing you Paper Pumpkin Alternates for May’s kit called Hugs from Shelli. Shelli is the Founder of Stampin’ Up! and she helped design this month’s kit. I loved the original cards so much that my alternate uses ink colors, stamps, and some twine from the kit, but I did not alter any of the items from the kit.
I used this card for my Paper Pumpkin Club, which is where my subscribers and I get together once a month and make our kits and I share an alternate project and all the supplies for that project with them. They have asked that I only use the extras from the kit because they like to make the cards from the kit as is…so, that is what I do.
This month, I was inspired by the flowers and soft colors and this is what I came up with:

1559016208158.jpg

I started with a base of Early Espresso, used 2 pieces of the tissue paper that was in the kit and after adhering, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtles Embossing folder. Then I cut a piece of Pool Party and embossed it with the retiring Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I distressed the edges with the Early Espresso ink pad. The ‘Hugs For You’ is from the included stamp set and stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla in Early Espresso and distressed as well. I like distressing because it helps frame things in. In this case it also went with the worn look of the card. If you have been following me for awhile you will notice that I do distress quite frequently. After the stamping, I used the Tailored Tag Punch to cut it out. I then used a strip of burlap ribbon and made a bow from the kit using the Petal Pink twine for the bottom of the tag. The tag was raised with dimensionals. And, of course, 3 pearls were added to give it the final touch.
I am pleased with the card and the ladies loved it when they came for our Paper Pumpkin Club on Saturday. If you are in the Whitefish area, please feel free to join us! We have a grand ol’ time!

GSF – The Neutrals

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy!

It’s the first Friday of the month, so that means the amazing Demos of the Global Stamping Friends are having another hop! This month we are showcasing The Neutrals.

What are the Neutrals you ask? The Neutrals are, in order of appearance, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, and Soft Suede.

neutrals assorted ink pads

These are some very useful colors and most can be used in combination with any of the other color families that Stampin’ Up! has to offer! 

The stamp set I used is Geared Up Garage. Yes! I really do love this stamp set and framelits…A LOT! If you have any doubts, or need other ideas on how to use it, you can check out the other posts here, here, here, and here! 😉 It’s just a perfect set for the guys in my life! 

Here is my newest card creation:

1554017473958.jpg

Then on the inside, it looks like this. The top flap of the card was trimmed off a bit so that the smudge and navy line were part of the inside, too.

1554017534848.jpg

The materials used for this card are:

 

Feel free to shop in my store to get your hands on this amazing stamp set and framelit dies HERE or by clicking on the blue words in the list above! Don’t forget the DSP while you are at it! I sure trust this set makes it into the new Annual Catalog! We will find out soon! I’m not ready to stop using it! 😉

That is all I have for you today. I trust you enjoyed another creation from one of my all time favorite Occasions Catalog stamp sets! Now let’s hop on over to Tricia Butts blog and see what she created with The Neutrals!

Challenges this card is (or was going to be) entered into:

  • Cardz 4 Guys – #216 Let’s Get Messy
  • The design for this card actually came from a new Challenge site I found…Freshly Made Sketches.

    However, since I still have not learned to pay closer attention to closing dates of sketches, I missed out on this one because it closed before this blog post went live. Bummer! I will learn, truly, I will! 

  • The Male Room – #107 DIY (I had also designed this card with this challenge in mind, but it also closed before this blog hop went live, so I missed out. Bummer!

ICS – It’s a Spring Thing!!

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy!

It’s the 1st Wednesday of the month so it’s time for the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop! I love hopping with these lovely ladies!

This blog hop is all about Spring! It’s here according to the calendar…just not according to our actual weather, although the snow is melting.

Since I have 3 Mother-in-Laws (Mom, Step-mom, Father-in-Law’s partner) and 1 mother of my own, I have Mother’s Day on the brain already. So, here is a card I made for one of the Mother-in-Laws…won’t say which one in case they see this. 😉

It started off as a sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and a Color Throwdown combination 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and turned into this:

I like how it turned out! Soft and pretty, just like the lovely lady who will get this card! I even used some Wink of Stella on the embossed flowers. You can kind of see the sparkle in this photo. Subtle, but effective.

Now you can hop along to Tricia Butts blog and see what she created for her Spring Thing! Enjoy the hopping!

Sketch + Colors = Mom?

Howdy!

Was on a good creative roll this weekend and wanted to get the cards blogged before the challenges run out…seems to happen a bit to me lately!

So, here is the color combo from Fab Friday and the sketch from Sketch Saturday. They were some great inspiration for this card!

 

 

And here is my creation using these 2 wonderful inspirations!

I used Wink of Stella on the wreath and the bow to give it a little more pizzazz…who doesn’t love a little sparkle, right? Here is a closer look…
Over all, I love the bright springy colors on this card! I am sure my Mother-in-Law will too!

Last day of Sale-A-Bration! Better get your order in ASAP! Here are a couple last cards of a stamp set and embossing folder that I finally got to play with!

Such a darn cute stamp set called So Hoppy Together! Going to send it to my sister! I also used a sentiment “I believe in you!” from Amazing Life from the Occasions catalog which goes until June 3rd. The other sentiment is from Part of My Story from the SAB brochure. All supplies will be listed below.

Here is the Country Floral Embossing folder card for my Mother-In-Law. I’m working on improving my coloring skills…I think it came out pretty good! Don’t you? Again, I will list the supplies below.
