Stampin Friends May Hop Sympathy/Thinking of You

SFblog

 

Hi there Stampin Friends! Welcome to the May 2016 Blog Hop- we are featuring Thinking of You and Sympathy cards this month. I’d like to welcome our three guest hoppers this month, looking forward to seeing what crafty projects you have come up with this month. Here are the three guest hoppers, be sure to click on “comments” and leave each of the 13 of us bloggers a comment, to be entered to win a mystery gifts from each of us!

Guest Hoppers:

  2. Bibi Cameron

Sadly, sympathy/thinking of you cards are the one type of card that I have needed too many of recently. These are the types of cards that I prefer to make several of ahead of time, so they are ready to go when needed. I’ve gone through my whole stash and even sold out at the craft fair I did on Sunday as well.

This card is one that I made the other night so I could send it out to a very special family who lost a loved one in a tragic motorcycle accident. It is so hard to know what to say or do when someone leaves us so suddenly. I hope my card and gift basket will bring them some comfort and that they will know how much I care.

 

 

This card features two awesome stamp sets-Timeless Textures (clear mount item #140517 or wood mount item # 140514) and Wild about Flowers (photopolymer stamp set item# 138728) (so glad these  are both carrying over!)  I went with Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake for my colors and a pop of gold foil for the butterfly to make it extra special. What do you think?

 

In this blog hop, in addition to the card we also show you a 3D item. I didn’t really have a three dimensional project to coordinate with this theme, so I thought I’d show you the awesome gift card holder in the March Paper Pumpkin kit. I used this project at a recent stamping event with some ladies at a local church. They just loved this quick and simple project. Don’t you just adore Paper Pumpkin? The kit is always there for a quick project, and can easily be altered or modified if needed.

Are you ready to enter to win our monthly mystery giveaway?? (Try saying that three times fast!) Just leave me a comment (scroll down to the bottom of my page- comments are moderated by me to avoid spammers, I will approve your comment as soon as I can!) You must enter your comment and include #SFMayHop with your comment, to be entered in the giveaway. Hope you will consider hopping along to all 13 blog posts today- and leave comments at each one! thanks!

Creative Inking Blog Hop- Saying Goodbye

creative hop

 

Hi there stamping friends! Welcome to another month with the Creative Inking Blog Hop team! This month we are featuring stamps and products that are retiring from the Stampin’ Up! 2015-16 Annual Catalog and the 2016 Occasions Catalog. There are so many great stamps, inks, punches, dies, colors that are leaving us- I’m sure you’ll enjoy this “Last Chance” blog hop- to see things you might want to buy before they are gone forever! It’s hard to believe it’s time to say “good-bye” to them!

I decided to feature these three cards at my May Clubs this month and for this blog hop, don’t you love it when you can “kill two birds with one stone” (where did that saying come from, lol?)

 

This card is a case from a demonstrator from the Netherlands who made it in yellow. Thanks Anja!


This card is my own design featuring the retiring set Hey Girl…

 

Which one do you like better the blonde or the brunette?

I saved my favorite for last, I am so sad that By the Tide is retiring, I absolutely love this coral and all the stamps in the set actually.


Here are some close-ups of the elements on this card. I used our shimmery white card stock for the base and that was beautiful to watercolor, I used crumb cake for the sandy bottom, and then Bermuda bay with some pool party to make the ocean water.

Well what do you think of my retiring offerings? I love to read your comments! Thanks so much for visiting, if you’re ready to go to the next blog to see what Sandy has in store for you,  just click the button below:

Card Making at the Senior Center & Blog Candy Give Away!


Good morning stamping friends! I hope you have had a great week! Do you have fun plans for the weekend? Tomorrow we will be traveling to Syracuse to celebrate Mother’s Day with my family- looking forward to it, we have a lovely brunch at a restaurant called Justin’s Tuscan Grill and then hopefully if the weather cooperates we will head to a local park to visit and hang out together! I don’t want to show you my Mother’s Day cards/projects yet- so be sure to come back on Monday to see my creations.

Today I want to share with you four cards that I did last week at my monthly card class at a local senior center. Shout out to my friend and downline Brigid, she volunteers to come each month and help me with this class. Thanks so much Brigid!

This sweet card is one of two projects you can make from your March 2016 paper pumpkin kit! This kit made four cards of this size, and four gift card holders simply adorable!

 

Because I love my paper pumpkin kit so much, and I’d love to put one in your hands, because I have this prepaid gift card, I am issuing a blog candy challenge, leave me a comment about why you want a kit (what you would use it for, who you might create with, any comment about these fun kits). Be sure to leave a comment on this thread here on my blog, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a spot where you can leave a comment. Be sure to leave a comment by Tuesday, May 10 at 5 PM. I will draw one winner using a random number generator, and I will contact the winner between 8 and 9 PM to redeem this kit I will need your contact info.

This card showcases the free stamp set Stampin’ Up! gifted to us in our April 2016 paper pumpkin kit. The stamp set is called “All About Everything” and it is just gorgeous. I came up with this flower pot design to showcase a flat and simple card. What do you think? Those outgoing in colors just really pop, I used Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, blackberry bliss, and hello honey. Did you stock up on these colors before they retire?

This simple card showcases three products that are carrying over to the next catalog, so glad the kit called water color wishes is carrying over, also happy about the botanical blooms set, and timeless textures from the Occasions catalog!!

This fun card is perfect for that special guy, unfortunately this stamp set called “going global” is retiring, if you want this set, you must order it by May 31!!

Here are a couple variations of this card with other sentiments.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! I hope you have a wonderful day, don’t forget to leave me a comment if you want to be entered to win one free paper pumpkin kit! (This contest is open to everyone, my downline, customers, other demonstrators, and friends!)

We Create Blog Hop-May 2016

WCBH2016

 

Hi there stamping friends, how in the world did it get to be May 1? I surely don’t know, so this blog hop kind of snuck up on me… Hope you don’t mind that I am just going to share four cards I did this week at my Stamp a Stack class I had Monday night featuring some retiring stamps and products. (I have been pet sitting this week and not at home in my own craft room…. my apologies!)

 


 

First up is a card I came up with using the technique I saw at OnStage- this is a perfect technique to use up your designer series paper’s, don’t hoard them get using them! Use a 4″ x 4″ piece of DSP, and then slice it on the diagonal so you can pull apart the paper and have a 1 inch strip to stamp your sentiment within the white space.  The DSP and the stamp (a single stamp called Blended Bloom) is also retiring. I colored the flower with my blender pens and blushing bride and daffodil delight ink. (the darker part of the petal was colored in with just the blushing bride marker).

 

I came up with this card to feature several retiring products: the Beautiful Bunch Stamp set, Fun Flower Punch, white jute ribbon and Decorative Dots textured impression embossing folder. I’m going to miss them all!
This card was cased from a card I found from a goggle image search of the stamp set “Choose Happiness” made by Margaret Raburn. Love the card, thanks Margaret!
This card features the retiring stamp set called “Serene Silhouettes”, the large oval punch and burlap ribbon is also retiring. Grab it before it’s all gone.

It was so great meeting you ladies at OnStage- Julie, Jeanna, and Cheryl (sorry we missed you Tanya!).

Well, I hope you forgive me for not following our normal formula (One card and then a stepped up version of the card). Thanks for understanding. Continue on the blog hop by clicking “next” to go see what Julie has for you this month… and be sure to leave us all a comment.
