Global Stamping Friends – Seasonal Fun


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:


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

SU! Holiday Card Swap #4

Hello Out There!

I just realized I forgot to show you card #4 form the Holiday card swap I had done. Jeepers, I really need to get myself organized and consistent!

This one was a fun one! I was again using the Still Night stamp set and thinlits. However, I needed to come up with the Big Shot focal piece. Of course, all my other cards already did that and I was almost freaked out thinking that I had used all possibilities up. Alas, I finally remembered that one of the main ideas I had had before they all blanked out on me was to do a snowy owl. So, here is my snowy owl!


I kept it simple. I used the Whisper White cardstock as a base and distressed it with Pacific Point, which was also my 2nd layer. I also corner rounded it to soften it a bit. The branch is cut from Early Espresso card stock using the thinlits and my Big Shot. I embossed the Pacific Point using the Softly Falling embossing folder (one of my faves!) and had also cut out a few of the snowflakes. I used the clear rhinestones in the center of the larger snowflakes. I also used sheer ribbon across the bottom to keep the branch from just “floating” in the sky. It seemed to ground it.

Of course, after making all these cards using this set…I found ideas on Pinterest that turned the branch sideways. That is something I still will do and see how I like it. For now, I am pleased with my cards and I am pleased with all the other cards I got in return! I am well on my way to having cards stocked up by doing these swaps and making my own cards.

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 with me!

Blessings, June

Bloghop 13 – SU! Colour Challenge

Hello! TGIF!

I have been working on my second Blog hop, ever. It’s a very fun thing to do! This one is from a facebook group I found called Global Stamping Friends. People from all over the world participate and I am honored to be one of them for this Colour Challenge! (Love the English spelling of Colour, so fun!)


So, let me tell you the details…

Here are the colors I needed to use. And they are perfect for the card I needed to make for my brother’s birthday coming up in September! A nice masculine assortment, if you want it to be. I did!


So, I have my colors, now what? Well, since it is his 50th, I have to use the Large Number Framelits and Number of Years stamp set…just in case he doesn’t know how old he is turning, right?!? Hahaha!

And, since it is birthday, I have to pull out my new favorite stamp set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous! I love the balloon stamps in this set! I also pulled out some Whisper White Baker’s Twine for the balloon strings.

I used the Smokey Slate as my card base, and ran it through the Big Shot in the Softly Falling embossing folder! It really needed more back ground texture and that is a favorite of mine as well. I put it in sideways, so it isn’t really falling. Yes, I have a lot of favorites when it comes to Stampin’ Up! stuff! Can you tell?

I used Pool Party, not a favorite for a change. I am not a big user of Subtle colors, yet I like how it added some pop to this card. The Layering Ovals Framelits came in handy for the the background for the numbers. Night of Navy is a popular color for me to use and helps to show off the Pool Party.

I kept this card simple and to the point! My brother is not really into fancy crazy stuff unless it is food. He is a food photographer, and loves to eat and cook! If you are interested you can find his work at Shoot What You Eat. You’ll need a cloth to clean up your drool from seeing all the yumminess! LOL!

Anyway, back to his card, I got sidetracked and I am not even hungry!

I love the Balloon Bouquet punch and Large numbers framelits for birthdays from Stampin' Up!

I am pleased with how this turned out. I am also very excited to be part of this blog! Thank you to the Global Stamping Friends for including me in this blog hop! I look forward to more in the future!

Thank you for “hopping” by! Enjoy your journey!

Blessings, June

June: D’s Stamping Team USA Blog Hop – New Products


Hello! Welcome to my first Blog Hop with D’s Stamping Team USA Blog Hop for the month of June (my favorite month, of course!)!! I am so excited to be participating! There are so many wonderful new products in the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog…so I just chose a couple of my favorites! I also chose to make a 5×5 square card, something I rarely think of doing.



I made this birthday card for my brother-in-law. I asked him what his favorite colors are and he said blue, black, and red, so I challenged myself to make a card using them! The blue became Dapper Denim (a new In Color). The red became Cherry Cobbler (a deeper red, that I prefer), and the black is Basic Black (that was easy)! I also added some Whisper White for the banner and white embossing powder for the sweet little phrase at the bottom.

I used 5 of the stamps from Timeless Textures for the background using Dapper Denim and Cherry Cobbler inks. I just worked it around the edges and toward the center, since that is where I was going to focus the numbers. The numbers and phrases are from Number of Years stamp set…this one will get tons of use in my house, especially since it has the matching framlits! No more fussy cutting! Sweet!

When I used the white embossing powder, I used the Versa Mark ink pad. I also used a small piece of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon to add a flag on the 9. For the black strip in the middle, I cut a 1″ strip and ran it through the center of the Softly Falling embossing folder to give it some more texture. Overall, I am happy with this card! I trust he likes it too!

Thank you for stopping by! Next you will go to Megan Thompson’s blog and see her work of art!
