GSF Blog Hop – Party!

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy Everyone!

It’s the first Friday of the month! Therefore it is time for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! Whoopee! I really enjoy hopping with these lovely ladies from around the globe! It is fun to see what they create! Let’s get started!

This month’s theme is Party! I love a good party! I’m from Arizona, where we can grill all year long. We had BBQs often with friends and family for any and all occasions! Now living in Montana, and actually having winter, we don’t have BBQs as much, but we do grill for ourselves more than 3 times a week! We love grilling our meats and even veggies! Being such grillers, I was so excited to see the new Outdoor Barbecue stamp set in the new Mini catalog! I knew I had to have it! 

I kept it simple and created a fun little invitation…of which I am pretty sure I will be creating to invite people to our next BBQ…in winter! Why wait when we grill 3+ nights a week anyway, right? We’ll just eat inside!

Here it is…

For the steaks, burgers, and skewers, I stamped the ink off before stamping on here so that the colors would be more muted instead of full on. I wanted the black of the sentiment to stand out. I used dimensionals on the back of the grill after fussy cutting it out. Also, a quick tip to get your ribbon, twine, etc to stay put…use a hole punch to put “dents” in the side where you want it to stay and then a glue dot behind the knot. Stays put really well and is also easier to tie that way!

And here is the back…

When I make these for my actual BBQ, I will probably print the info on the lower portion with the computer instead of writing it out. I might center the invite and flames next time as well and maybe put the ketchup and mustard bottles as the bullet points for the info…kinda like that idea better!

Kept it simple and easy for this hop…love when it comes together so nicely! Supplies are listed below.

Now on to the amazing Angélique Stempelkeuken to see what she has in mind for a Party!

ICS Blog Hop Monochromatic Mania

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy!

It’s the first Wednesday of the month…so that means it is time to hop with the Inspire, Create, & Share ladies! WooHoo! This month’s theme is monochromatic: ‘containing or using only one color,’ according to the dictionary. Monochromatic is not something I do often. I like lots of color! However, this was good for me to get out of my norm and do something different! Whisper White or Very Vanilla were ok to use as well. Although, sometimes you will see monochromatic art with black as a shadow. I might give that a whirl sometime, too.

I had gotten a Halloween card using this new fold and thought it was high time I made one myself…so why not for monochromatic? I chose Lovely Lipstick for my color with some Whisper White cardstock and the Parcels and Petals stamp set. Here is what I came up with…

1573073625052.jpg

I love the little flap! I’m going to make another of these turned on it’s side. Started that way with this one at first, but the sentiments were not working out in my favor.

Using the ‘stamping off’ technique is an absolute favorite of mine! Using it here makes the whole idea of monochromatic easier for me. Ink once and then stamp until the color is gone…it gets lighter as you go, obviously, and is still using 1 color = monochromatic!

Here is what it looks like when it opens…1573073653616.jpg

Feel free to click on the above blue writing to have it take you straight to my store and look over the supplies I used to make this simple card! And make sure you check out the brand new paper trimmer from Stampin’ Up! It cuts smooth as silk! More info below!

GSF – Stamper’s Choice

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy!

Can you believe it is already the 2nd month of the new year?! Wowza! It’s also that time again…the first Friday of the month and a Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! WooHoo!! It is so fun to hop with these amazing demonstrators from around the globe! They are so inspirational!

This month the theme is Stamper’s Choice…so I chose to go with 2 #simplestamping cards! It seemed like the smartest choice since my craftroom is still a bit of a mess from the mini makeover. Stay tuned for more pictures on that this weekend!

I chose a stamp set from the Occasions Catalog called Meant To Be. I LOVE it! So versatile…we just have to love the versatility that Stampin’ Up! brings to their stamp sets!

Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set

I used Melon Mambo on Whisper White cardstock. Since Stampin’ Up! is promoting #simplestamping using paper, ink, and stamps, I wanted to give it a whirl. I am not used to being that simple in my card making, yet it was fresh, fun, and easy to do! I thought this card turned out great! Talk about simple…as in easy! I also used a favorite technique of mine called Stamping Off. You ink the stamp once and then stamp 2 or 3 times. Each time the ink gets lighter and looks like a different color, but it is just lighter shades of the original color…in this case, Melon Mambo (a favorite pink of mine!)

1548864563252.jpg

The next card I made was also a #simplestamping card. I used one of my FREE stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration brochure called Hello Cupcake

Hello Cupcake Photopolymer Stamp Set

This was a fun card to make as well. And, yes, I used the Stamping Off technique here too! I used Whisper White as my card base again and changed the color to Rich Razzleberry for the cupcake paper which I stamped at full strength and the icing was stamped off on scratch paper and then on this card to give it a lighter and fluffier look. Crumb Cake was used for the actual cupcake that shows up between the paper and the icing after stamping off on scratch paper, and then the sentiment was Crumb Cake at full strength.

Easy-peasy card! Yummy looking, too, don’t you think? 

1548864513917.jpg

I think a future post should show you how I might take these cards to the next level. I love watching Connie Stewart’s Now, Wow, or Holy Cow card videos. She is one of the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator’s that I follow on You Tube. She is very inspirational! I have all kinds of ideas running around in my head after watching her videos.

That’s all I have for you today! Back to reorganizing the craftroom. There will be a new post on that this weekend! Now on to see what Tricia chose for sharing with you! Just click the Next picture.16142532_1545314942146166_6627757169686037005_n

Global Stamping Friends – Seasonal Fun

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Hello, Hello!

It’s that time again…First Friday of the month…hopping with my Global Stamping Friends! These are some amazing ladies who make some amazing projects so enjoy the hopping! This month’s theme is Seasonal Fun…so let’s have some fun and I will show you what I created!

I am all about snow right now! I live in Whitefish, Montana and we are supposed to have a lot more snow than we do right now!! Our ski mountain has been making snow to open yesterday. That is so sad! I figure if I keep making cards with winter scenes and lots of snow maybe we will keep getting snow! As a snowmobile rider, I want a lot more snow! I decided to “capture” some snow in a shaker card!

Here is my creation:

1544079113131.jpg

I love purple! So using Gorgeous Grape is a joy! So happy for this new color from Stampin’ Up!! I kept this card simple using the Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White cardstock with a little bit of Tuxedo Black ink. The bow was inked with Gorgeous Grape and stamped off 2 times on other paper before using it on this card. I also used the framelits to make the snowflakes and used silver and lighter colors from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.

I used the Jars of Love stamp set

Jar Of Love Photopolymer Stamp Set

and Everyday Jars Framelit


Everyday Jars Framelits Dies

I used my Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder on the Gorgeous Grape layer after I used the stardust stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set to give it a background pattern. Also from that set are the front sentiment, punch out with the Everyday Label punch and the holly, which I used Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers to ink the leaves and berries and then fussy cut them out. The inside sentiment is from Beautiful Baubles. The inside snowflakes are from the Colorful Seasons stamp set which was inked 1 time and stamped 3 times. Yep, my favorite technique! And I used 3 Pearl White sequin from the Adhesive Backed Sequin set.

 

 

 

 

I am so proud of myself for mixing up my stamp sets…I used to only use what it came with it instead of incorporating others. I am Out-of-the-Box now!! YAY! Finally!

Thank you for hopping with me, now it’s time to enjoy what Jenn made for your delight!16142532_1545314942146166_6627757169686037005_n
