ICS Blog Hop – Thinking of You!

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy! 

Well, this is a crazy unexpected week! A long-term sub job started 2 weeks early because she had her baby already. Yikes! I’m actually writing this at school on my prep and then running home to finish this card and take the pictures!

So happy to be hopping with these wonderfully creative ladies from the Inspire Create & Share Blog Hop group! They have some serious talent and I am honored to hop with them! This month our theme is Thinking of you! It could be sympathy, get well, or anything we wanted. I chose to make a Get Well card. Always handy to have during Winter, for sure!

I used the Sale-A-Bration Hostess stamp set called Little Ladybug. I had to have this set since my nickname is Junebug and my business is Junebug Creations and I use a ladybug for it. It is so darling and the new dies that go with it are so fun!

I needed some inspiration and since I love challenges…I went and found 2 fun challenges…and discovered that one of them closed already…Oh, well! I will learn to check dates better, one of these days. 

Global Stampin’ Friends for the colors:

And the sketch was from CAS(E) the Sketch:

Brian King is one of the SU Demos that I follow so it was fun to get inspiration from him!

I even did some coloring…not my best talent, but I am working on it! Here it is…what do you think of my interpretation?

Now on to see what Shirley Merker created for this month! Enjoy the rest of the hop!

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…

1577867012495.jpg

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…

1577867041751.jpg

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!

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o

Howdy Everyone!

Here’s to you all having a very Healthy and Joyous 2020!

I am excited to start off the new decade with a Blog Hop with the lovely ladies of the Inspire, Create, and Share Blog Hop group! We hop together on the first Wednesday of the month. This month we are showcasing items from the new Sale-A-Bration flyer that will go active on January 3rd…2 more days and then you can get your hot little hands on these fun items! If you need the new SAB flyer and Mini Catalog, please let your demonstrator know, or leave me a comment and I will send one to you! Let’s get started!

I chose to showcase the Sending You Thoughts stamp set. It is so versatile because it is a stamp set full of sentiments! I paired it with the Painted Poppies Bundle from the new mini catalog, which also goes live on January 3rd.

Here is my card…

1577859354323.jpg

And here is the inside…

1577859473000.jpg

The supplies are listed below. I kept it simple, yet fun! It’s a lot more white than I tend to use, but I really like how the colors pop! I’m thinking this will become one of the cards in my upcoming Birthday Card Buffet event. We shall see…and you’ll see when the time comes, so stay tuned!

And now, on to Candy Ford who is showcasing ‘Happy Birthday to You’…just click the Next button below and you will hop along…Enjoy!

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

ICS Blog Hop – SU! Sale-A-Bration Time

32665355_10216915228977740_1820335104300417024_o
Hello, Hello!
Happy New Year to you All!! Here’s wishing you much love, joy, peace, prosperity, health, and happiness…plus a good dose of adventure in 2019!
Today is another ICS Blog Hop and since Sale-A-Bration starts tomorrow, the timing is perfect! Take a look at all the goodies these talented ladies share on this hop and then have fun choosing what you have to have in your craft room!
For this hop I chose the Amazing Life stamp set. I am all about positivity in my life and this one is another good one and very versatile!

MVIMG_20181225_224112-1.jpg

I also used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits that are cool because they show the stitching on both sides of the cut. Brilliant! I bought the stamp set and framelits as a bundle (aren’t bundles the best?) and got the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack for FREE! Gotta love FREE! Favorite 4 letter word in our language!

MVIMG_20181225_224301-1.jpg
Had this card idea in my head and it came out pretty close…however I did it both ways color-wise, because I couldn’t decide which way I liked better and neither could the Hubster! 🙂 Tell me what you think!
I used Early Espresso, Grapefruit Grove, and Balmy Blue cardstock and Balmy Blue ink for the sentiment. I also ended up stamping the sentiment 2x because once was not dark enough. That is where photopolymer stamps are a blessing, for sure!!


I also stamped in the corners in the same color as the cardstock.

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!

#GDP170 – Sketch Challenge

Hello, Hello!

Christmas Day ended up being a play day for us here in our little family. The guys played on the computer and I found this challenge to work on! Happy Day!

I have decided to pick a few challenges to do each week/month and stick with them on a regular basis. Since Global Design Project is all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, I figure it’s a good one for me to find inspiration with our products and learn a thing or two from some very talented folks!

Here is this week’s challenge sketch…actually, due to the holidays, it’s 2 weeks. I’m a jump ahead! WooHoo!

And here is my take on the card using my current favorite color combination in all areas of my life right now…purple and green…Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green in Stampin’ Up! color names.

1545787378103.jpg

I had ordered a stamp set called Amazing Life from the 2019 Occasions catalog and thought I would use it along with the lovely Organdy Ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. January 3rd will be here soon! 

My base is Whisper White cardstock with Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green cut with the new Stitched Rectangles. I use the Stitched Squares and Circles a lot and knew that I would have to have the rectangles in my collection! Plus, it was a Bundle, and who doesn’t like bundles?! They work a little differently because they show a stitching on both sides of the cut. I will have to practice more with them as I had to run them through a few times to get it cut all the way through. I am sure it was user error! Feel free to leave me a tip below if you have one! 

I used my Big Shot to cut not only the stitched Rectangles, but also the ‘Amazing’ from the Celebrate You thinlits. I did it in Basic Black and Granny Apple Green to help it stand out a bit more. I used Gorgeous Grape for the cake and Granny Apple Green for the corner designs. Tuxedo Black was used for the side sentiment on the Granny Apple Green cardstock. I like making the pieces a little wonky…kinda like me! 😉

You can see the layers. I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the words to each other and to the ribbon. Then I used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it all to the card.

Inside I put another sentiment and added some embellishment. Not sure who started the trend of putting the embellishment in the corner and the sentiment on the bottom, but I saw it on a You Tube video from Connie Stewart and thought it looked neat. What are you thoughts on it? We’ll see when I send this card how I like it. It’ll be weird to write above versus below. 🙂

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!

Blessings, June

SU! Sealed with Love

Hello! TGIF!!! (almost)

Wowza! What a crazy week this has been for me! I haven’t worked out once no matter what great intentions I had! I am short on sleep, water intake, and my house is a bit of a disaster! BUT, I have blogged this week! Crazy, crazy!

This is the last of the newest cards from this past weekend that I made. I trust I will be able to get some more done this weekend before my In-Laws come for a visit next Tuesday. Our son is in a 6th grade Musical called “Grunch” next week and they are driving from Canada to see it! Should be a fun time! Will be getting house in order, planning meals, and make cards or scrap pages this weekend!

So, on to the card!

This one started as a sketch challenge for another new blog that I found. It’s called Try Stampin’ On Tuesday. Cool name, right?! Anyway, here is the sketch…

And her is my card…

1487114170594

I used the Playful Palette Designer Paper Stack that I have been working with lately! Still have not braved the super-duper crazy patterns, but I will.

The card base is Very Vanilla and I adhered the Playful Palette paper over the complete front of the cardstock and then edged it with the Emerald Envy dauber. I used a strip of Sweet Sugarplum across the bottom part of the card and stamped it with a line of hearts from the Sealed with Love stamp set out of the current Occasions catalog. The Hello Love and the decorative swirl above it are also from that stamp set and stamped in the Sweet Sugarplum as well. Then it is backed with the Emerald Envy cardstock. The tag is from a Paper Pumpkin kit and was a left over. The Emerald Envy swirl is an innard of one of the swirls from cards shown here from the Swirly Scribbles Framelit set.

This was a fast card to put together and I really like how it turned out. Like I have said before, this paper stack is really a challenge for me and I am glad that I am using it to show others that it really does make some pretty cards! Oh, and I did give this card to my 2 special Loves of my Life! Hubby and son!

Enjoy your weekend! I trust you have fun things planned with family and friends besides crafting!

Blessings, June
