All About Love- Stampin Friends January Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! We are kicking off 2018 with some new designers on our team, so excited to meet new crafters here in the Stampin Friends community. We’d like to welcome you to another wonderful month of our fabulous creative projects and cards! I am so excited to hop along and see what everyone else has made! Did you just arrive from Kirsteen’s awesome blog? She does amazing work! Thank you for hopping by to see my creations!

As the title of this hop states- “All About Love”, I wanted to create some “wow” projects for you! I hope you like!

I found these gorgeous wooden hearts and mini lights at Target, I thought they would be perfect for some home decor for Valentine’s Day.

I wanted to show off our amazing suite of products in the 2018 Occasions catalog called “Painted with Love” (pages 18-19) I absolutely love how easy it is to complete projects with our coordinating product suites. And this new “Sure Do Love You” bundle was on my preorder list in December! I couldn’t wait to create all my Valentine’s projects with these beauties. *note- I used the 2 1/4″ circle punch to create the little envelope “liner” look in the narrow envelopes.. just thought it “jazzed it up”. Do you like it?

 

By now, you know how absolutely crazy I am for cursive fonts, and this one is no exception! “You’re my Valentine every single day” is a sweet sentiment for that special someone, or your favorite niece or nephew (just saying).

This Painted with Love Specialty pack of Designer Series Paper is so colorful and has gold accents on every single piece of the paper!  (brushstroke imagery is on the reverse of the gold accent side of DSP).

These new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes fit perfectly inside this box made with the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies. (Remember you save 10% when you order the bundle!) (the note cards are 2 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ (too small to mail individually but perfect for this little box, or for gift baskets.)

Did you know that you could use our delicate white lace doilies as “trim”? Sure- just cut into the doilies center, remove the center circle, then apply adhesive to back of heart and work the strip of doily around the heart.

Well, that’s all I have for you today, are you ready to go hop around to see what my Stampin Friends have created? Just click the next name on the list below. So thrilled to hop along with these talented ladies. Hope you have a great day! (for my supply list and links to order products scroll down below list for my contact info). Thanks!

 

Remember to leave us a comment, we love to hear from you! thanks!

CCDT Blog Hop- Love is in the Air!

Hello and Happy New Year Friends! Happy New 2018 Occasions Catalog AND Sale-a-Bration Launch Day! Today has been a busy day getting all the links and catalogs updated for this new season! Thank you so much for joining us on our hop! I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this month! With our theme “Love is in the Air”, I’m getting ready for Valentine’s Day, I hope you like my card.

This is a card I made for Valentine’s Day and for an organized swap I participated in last month. I loved using our new Brusho Crystals for watercolor. (this new product is a dry powder- in 5 colors and is so fun to play with!)

First I made the card by cutting out large letters “I” and “U” from Whisper White card stock. Then I embossed the heart in whisper white embossing powder on our Shimmer Paper (it is thicker and more absorbent). Then get the paper very wet with an aqua painter. Then sprinkle the brusho crystals on (tip- just poke a hole in top of your crystals with paper piercing tool- to make a shaker jar, DON’T peel the sticker off as it will be too hard to shake/control it.) Then blend the powder until you cover all the paper/area that you want. You can play with adding a second (or more) color, but for Valentine’s Day I only wanted to use the red.

I wasn’t quite happy with this look, so went back to the drawing board, this time, I decided to cut the “I” and “U” out of the Shimmer paper that I used for my base. I also stamped and used matching framelits for the little heart.

Now this is an “Eclipse” technique card- I just love making cards with this technique, don’t you? Don’t you just love the new gold glitter? What do you think?

Are you ready to go visit the other talented Demonstrators? This is an International Group- you will be amazed by all their wonderful projects! Enjoy!

We Create Blog Hop January 2018

Happy New Year Friends!! I hope you all had a happy and safe New Year’s Eve last night!

Do you like our new blog header? The talented Jeanna gave us a little make-over, I just love it! (you probably just hopped to me from her site- isn’t she amazing??? I just love all her creations!) So we decided to continue our theme of “Step it Up” where we create one project and then “step it up” somehow. Since we are just 2 days away from the release of the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions catalog and the launch of our most awesome reward season ever- Sale-a-Bration, I think this blog hop will be a fantastic showcase of new products.

This was my first must have stamp set from Sale-a-Bration! My first demo preorder had to have these cute pandas! Party Pandas stamp set comes in clear or wood mount, is free with a $50 order.

New this year, Stampin’ Up! Is offering two price point rewards- You are familiar with our rewards for s $50 purchase, new this year are two exclusive rewards at the $100 level. we have an awesome set of thinlit dies called “Celebrate You” as a free gift with a $100 order!

I counted 10 birthdays on my calendar for January- I know I will be making more of this fun card.

What do you think?

Thank you so much for visiting me today! Are you excited to go see what the talented Kimberley has prepared for us? Me too!
