Hello, Hello!

It’s that time again…a Blog Hop with Global Stamping Friends! WooHoo! These ladies are quite talented, live all over the world, and I really enjoy hopping with them! So, let’s get this party started!

Since it is Sale-A-Bration, Stampin’ Up!’s most special time of year…I chose a stamp set from the new Occasions Catalog called Meant To Be. Yes, it is a Valentine’s Day stamp set, however, it can also just be a stamp set of LOVE! We all love the versatility of stamp sets!

Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set

And then there is the framelit set that goes with it, as a Bundle, of course! I LOVE< LOVE< LOVE it! It’s called Be Mine Stitched Framelits! I am truly loving all the stitched framelits they are coming out with!!

Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies

Here is the card I made:

I used Powder Pink cardstock as my card base and Powder Pink ink to stamp the hearts all over the card in random ways…even falling off the card. I used most of the hearts in the set. Then I used my Big Shot and ran these 2 framelits through using Lovely Lipstick cardstock. The little heart at the end of the sentiment is also Lovely Lipstick cardstock from the cloud of hearts framelit that I used for another card you will see in the next post. I almost lined the hearts up perfectly, then asked the Hubster what he thought (he has a good eye for photos and colors) and he agreed that offsetting them and making them wonky looked better. That was the way I was leaning toward as well. Linear has it’s place, just not on this card. 🙂

The sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black ink and actually comes from the Part of My Story stamp set which is FREE with a $50 order in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. It has such great sentiments! You’ll see more of them on my future cards and scrapbook pages!

Hello – Hello!

Time for another Blog Hop with my Global Stamping Friends! I love hopping with these talented demonstrators! This month’s theme is…can you guess from my title? Circles!! Let’s have some fun!

I saw this paper in my new All Is Bright DSP pack that I got last week and thought, “Oooh, elegant!” Plus, I have been drooling over the Beautiful Baubles stamp set and Detailed Baubles Thinlits ever since I saw it in the Holiday Catalog!! It is so gorgeous that I finally just had to order it! It just seemed so right to put the 2 together when they both came in the same box! WooHoo!

MVIMG_20181031_202401  Beautiful Baubles Photopolymer Bundle

At first I was going to use black and white to keep the feel of elegance, but after making a card using a white base…it just fell flat. I won’t bore you with that card…

My hubster actually encouraged me to use the Basic Black cardstock base and give it another whirl…and Oh My Gosh! I think it came out lovely!! And elegant!! Which is what I wanted in the first place!

Want to see it? Here it is:

I am pleased with how it turned out! You can even see the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in the light that is on the “wreath” around the ornaments! That was a lucky picture! I also added the Wink of Stella to the Whisper White sentiment circle, but you can’t see it in this picture. The ribbon already had sparkle in it…probably why they named it Shimmer Ribbon! 😉

What do you think? Did I hit the “elegant” mark on the nose, or what!? It definitely turned out better than the first one or the Turkey I was considering making, but thought I needed ovals for the feathers instead of circles…who knows, maybe I will still make one. It is November after all! LOL If you want instructions on how to make this card, just leave a comment below and I will get them emailed to you. Thanks!
