Creative Circle June 2016 Blog Hop


Hi there stamping friends! I am so excited about joining Liz Holloway’s amazing Creative Circle Design Team! Thank you for having me Liz and I look forward to learning about my new Silhouette Cameo that I purchased (but haven’t had time to hook up yet) so I can enter the world of electronic-cutters. So very thrilled to join Liz, Sandy, and Carol this month.

One of the thrills of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting to pre-order product before the new catalog goes live. As you know, I also received a lot of new product when I was in Salt Lake City for the OnStage event in April. I’m happy to say I have enjoyed playing with my goodies, and today I am showing you a coordinating card and 3D item. I would love for you to leave me a comment at the bottom of this post before you hop on to all the other ladies blog posts.

First up is this fun Marquee Style Birthday Card, this can be customized with any colors you’d like. I used the softer Very Vanilla card stock for the base of this card and knew that the marquee cut out would look amazing against a brick wall backdrop, do you agree?




I sponged the brick wall piece of card stock with soft suede to give it a grunge look. I peeled the back of the glimmer paper off so I could stamp the little marquee stars and easily cut them out.


Can you see the gold shimmer inside the arrow? That luscious gold is from the Wink of Stella Gold pen, love how easy it is to apply!


Next up is my 3D project- I thought a fun curvy keepsake box with balloons, In-Color highlight and more gold would be super fun, and best part is, I just wedged the arrow and balloons (on a piece of window sheet) within the handles, no glue used, so you can pull them out to open the box and get the goodies. I think these would be adorable for favors at a kids birthday party- what do you think?



Now let’s go see what beautiful creations that Carol has made! Click the Creative Circle Design Team button below.  If you get lost, you can click on their names below to get to each of their blogs.
