ICS July Blog Hop – My Favorite Bundle

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy Everyone!

I am back! 2nd time out of 3 hops this week! Are you excited?! I am!

This is the fun Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop and always the 1st Wednesday of the month! I can’t believe it is July already! EEK! Where is the year going?

We are showcasing our favorite bundles this week! When you order a Bundle you save 10% rather than ordering the items separately! How awesome is that?! Below I have a list of all the stamp set and punch or dies bundles in this new catalog! Or CLICK HERE to see every Bundle in the catalog now! They are amazing!

The bundle I am showcasing is the Peaceful Moments Bundle. It is a carryover from the Spring Mini.

PEACEFUL MOMENTS BUNDLE (ENGLISH)
Price: $52.00

I love this bundle and have become even more enamored of it because I saw my first poppies in person ever! I have a big patch of them in the middle of my new yard and 2 smaller patches on the side of the house! They were amazing to watch grow and bloom! The stamps and dies are truly realistic! Here are the poppies from my yard…

It was interesting to see the differences between the flowers from the different patches. One had the dark insides and 1 layer of petals…that’s my favorite…the big patch has some flowers with many layers of petals and other flowers just had one layer of petals. I fell in love with poppies for sure!!

Here is my version…

I used some Wink of Stella on the poppies to give them a little more pizzazz because I love them so much! 😉

I used a number of the inside layers to capture the depth of the real ones. I think I came pretty close!

That is it for me tonight! Now it’s off to see what Anastasia Radloff has created with the Whale Done bundle. It’s one of the ones on my shopping list, too!

June PPP Blog Hop – Box of Sunshine

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy, Everyone!

It’s Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop time! WooHoo! I love my Paper Pumpkin! And this month we are showing you all kinds of ways to make alternates from the kit Box of Sunshine!

I kept it super simple this month since I am still unpacking! I know, I should be done, but sadly, there is always more than just my Creation Studio to work on! Plus, I am still doing my Online ESL teaching each morning!

Instead of doing a big box of sunshine to give away, I chose to use the Gold Mini Pizza Box and just give a few little treats inside, or a giant brownie! These pizza boxes are always fun since they are food safe. We have the same mail lady as before and she delivered my Paper Pumpkin to me before I even remembered to do my address change! So, I trust she is up for a brownie this week as a Thank you in this fun box!

1593555148231.jpg

I’ll make one of the cards as a Thank you card to let her know I appreciate that she did not send my Paper Pumpkin back like the last time I moved from Colorado!

That is it for me today. Short and sweet and back to setting up my new Stamp counter! Pictures will be forthcoming when I get the room done!

Now you get to hop on to Candy Ford’s website and see what fun thing she came up with! Enjoy the Hop!

GSF – Trees and Wood

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy!

It is that fun time again where I get to hop with the lovely ladies of the Global Stamping Friends…Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! Let’s get started!

This month our theme was Trees and Wood. I was sad to discover that all my wood and trees stamp sets had retired and I forgot to order the new one that I have been drooling over. (I just ordered it, so you’ll see a post on it soon! 😉 ) Therefore, I turned to one of my favorite, although confusing, embossing folders…Woodland. The trees seem to be able to go either way and I get so confused at times. Yes, it is still one of my favorites! It worked, I’m going with it. 😉

Here it is…

1564770977196.jpg

I stamped my scene right onto the embossing folder and then ran it through my Big Shot. I just love this technique and have been wanting to try out this lighthouse scene for some time. Today was the perfect day for it!

I trust you like it…let me know with comments below. It’s always nice to hear from others. 

Now on to Tricia Butts’ blog to see what wonderful creation she has for you!

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

A Petal Promenade from SU!

Hello, again!

See, I am on a roll! It’s still Saturday night and I am getting blogs caught up! WooHoo!!

One last card that I made with the DSP that was on sale last month…yeah, sorry, it’s not anymore. You can still get it…just not the special. There is a different special running though that would certainly help you out with getting all the lovely DSP (Designer Series Paper) that SU! offers…buy $50 worth of product in August and you get a $5 coupon to redeem in September. Check it out here.

This card was completely from scratch! No sketch, no challenge, nothing but my own little creative brain at work…ok, not little, I have a big brain full of ideas! 🙂

I used one of the sentiment squares from the paper as my focal point. I kept it simple, yet it also came out elegant because of the amazing Petal Promenade DSP!

1532305581940

The sentiment stamped in Mossy Meadow comes from the Enjoy Life stamp set! A new favorite of mine! Used it for a card swap I did earlier this summer…oops, I guess I need to blog about that too! Darn! I am further behind in sharing what I have been up to this summer than I thought! I did lots of paper crafting this summer! Lots of blog posts coming…get ready!

The cardstock base is 8.5 x 5.5 inches. A standard A2 card. It is scored differently than usual. I needed to break out of my box of humdrum. It is scored at 2 3/4 inches and 7 inches. The two folded ends meet in the middle…not middle of the card, but meet across the card. The square sentiment is overlapping both sides. Adhere it only to the top flap. You can use either flap as the top…it’s up to you. I chose to use the bigger flap as my top. You could also turn this on it’s side and do a side opening card. Whatever you wish. I may do a few more and give the other options a whirl. When I do…I’ll be sure to tell you about it!

Base cardstock is Mossy Meadow, a returning color to the collection. So glad they brought it back!! I also ran the two top flaps through the Big Shot using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Embossing folder. Then I used Fresh Fig under the sentiment as a frame. Didn’t do a very thick frame as I wanted the flowers from the paper to stand out more than the cardstock frame. I used the Grapefruit Grove Natures Twine for across the top to add a little pop of color.

Again, a simple Thank you card that turned out elegant.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday night! I’m going to go get some dinner and get back to blogging, card making, or scrapbooking! I’ll let you know which!

Blessings, June

SU! Thank you variation…

Good Afternoon!

Finally had a day at home alone! Feeling fully recovered and truly in the mood to craft! Plus, I need Birthday Cards! Almost out! Yikes! That is not a good thing! Going to order some of the Sale-A-Bration birthday themed items today! WooHoo! There is some seriously cool stuff in the Occasions catalog for Birthdays! You can check it out Here.

But, before I do that, I wanted to show you a Thank You card that I did a tad differently than the last one in this style. I think I may like this one better! One of my favorite techniques is to do the “stamping off”, where you ink the stamp one time and then stamp it 2 or 3 times. In this case, I stamped it 2 times, with 2 different colors. I used the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up!- Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum. The swish is from the stamp set Work of Art. Card base is the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 and scored at 5 1/2 to fold top down style. I used the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper stack for the worded paper behind my sentiment. I also ran the sentiment through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling embossing folder. I just like how it came together! What do you think?

1485891985451

Now I am off to make Birthday cards with the Swirly Scribbles thinlits that I got from the Year-End closeout and haven’t gotten to use yet! I am so excited! I’ll post them as soon as I get them made!!

Materials used to make this card can be found Here, they include:

  • Work of Art clear stamp set
  • Dapper Denim and Sugarplum Ink pads
  • 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper
  • Sweet Sugarplum cardstock
  • Big Shot
  • Softly Falling embossing folder

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Blessings, June
