CCDT-February Blog Hop

Hi friends,

Thank you for stopping by for our Monthly Creative Circle Design Team- we are an International group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and we love to share our latest products, projects and techniques with you! Our team leader is the super talented Liz Holloway, who is a Canadian Demonstrator. This month the team is sharing some Easter Inspirations for you. Since Easter is so early this year, April 1st, we wanted you to have lots of ideas.

This card was made with the new bundle “Hold on to Hope”, with the Cross of Hope Framelits Dies to cut and emboss the silver cross (on page 27). It just pops when mounted on a Daffodil Delight oval that was framed with a so-called oval in Berry Burst. Notice the gorgeous Sweet Soirée Specialty Designer Series Paper? (Each piece has silver foil accents on one side with colorful printed images on the other, super easy to fussy cut the cakes or flowers or use the dies!) This suite is found on page 13 of the Occasions Catalog, with the Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

using the same DSP, this card is done in a monochromatic scheme featuring Old Olive and Always Artichoke card stock. Both cards include the “Happy Easter” sentiment from the ever versatile set ‘Teeny Tiny Wishes”.

Have you noticed that Stampin’ Up! has been indicating the stamp sets that are designed by our million dollar sales achievers? This Hold on to Hope set was inspired by Brandy Cox. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and knew it was a must-have for my collection. I will be featuring some stamping get-togethers and card ministries for my friends in church in the near future. Stay tuned.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Are you ready to hop along and see some more creative projects? Just click below.

Creative Inking Heartfelt Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to our Creative Inking Team Blog Hop! I’m thrilled to be hopping with these 9 talented ladies, I have learned so many awesome techniques, tips and tricks from everyone here, and I know you will too! This month our theme is “Heartfelt Greetings and Gifts” and I am excited to show you some sweet projects featuring our new line up from the 2018 Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs.

I wanted to first show off one of the cards we made at my Stamping Bingo night last week, featuring the brand new stamp set called “Heartfelt Blooms” from our Sale-a-bration catalog! (that means it’s free with a $50 purchase)… scroll down to bottom of this post for supply list, links and more info about how to earn free products!

I always like to feature cards that require no big-shot so my bingo ladies can sit and create and enjoy their night. This card was made with crumb cake ink pad, and then we used a sponge dauber to add some featured colors (daffodil delight, pear pizzazz, and powder pink ink). Super easy, and a quick card to make.

I had planned to show you all the projects from bingo, and the prizes, but we had our big BOGO sale today, and then I had my club make up class (from snow storm last week) and totally ran out of time. Come back another day to see the rest of my bingo offerings.

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!

Holiday Gift Ideas with the Creative Inking Bloggers!

Hello there friends! Thank you for joining us on another blog hop with these amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! This month, we have 10 fabulous participants, to “hop” along and see all their work, just click the icons at the bottom with the cute bunny- and “click” the “next” button to hop forward… it will take you to each one. I am so excited about the theme this month- Holiday Gift Ideas, and I just couldn’t wait to share some ideas with you! (And how perfect that today launches our Online Extravaganza– a special week long sale, with some awesome stamp sets available today only… scroll to bottom for a complete list!)

First, I wanted to show you this adorable hot cocoa gift– perfect use for those test tubes!

How sweet is this? I just love how this finished product came out- who would you give this to?? I’m thinking this would make a great teacher, bus driver, coach, co-worker, neighbor, mail carrier, and friend gift.

In case you wonder where to find this super cute mini mini marshmallow bits- they are in the hot cocoa isle (not where other marshmallows were at my local store). The little mini silver spoons are from the Dollar General store- just a great finish to this “gift”. (sorry about the mess in the background- I totally meant to crop that out!)

This is one of the projects we made tonight at my Stamping Bingo event, I was thrilled to have such a great response to this “Ugly Christmas Sweater” themed event. Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see all my bingo pictures!

 

This is a sweet little gift I featured at my last Girl Scout Troop meeting. The girls voted and wanted to learn about Book Making. (there is a badge for that! lol). They love time in the craft room and I taught them the hot glue gun binding technique. They each made a different cover, the inside pages are thick sketch book/artists paper so they can color and their work won’t seep through). I explained that these are inexpensive gifts they could make for their family members for gifts next month. (I did use some retired DSP and ribbon above).

 

 

 

Here is the complete flyer with all the items included in our Online Extravaganza Sale! Don’t forget that there are items on sale today only- those specials end at Midnight!

You can either click this image (note- this version has all the French stamp sets on the list).

Or click here and open the list I created- and note I removed all the French items.

Stampin Friends Happy Holidays Hop!

Hi there Stampin Friends!

I hope that this blog post finds you all doing well! This is certainly the season where things seem to get more hectic, there’s more illness, and if you’re like me, you just want to simplify and celebrate a meaningful holiday with your loved ones.

I hope this post gives you some ideas. I’m here for you! If you would like to give a meaningful gift this Christmas, I would be honored if you would consider me, and perhaps a Stampin’ Up!  gift certificate or products to make any crafter happy!

I recently hosted a small get together for my sister, her coworkers, and their daughters. Their request was to make some Christmas totes and special packaging for gift giving. In addition to the three projects here, I also let the girls have a little freedom to create cards (they loved that).

This little tote is super easy to make, I don’t know who to credit with the original idea, I’ve modified the pattern through the years to make cutting/prep easy.

I started with a 4″ x 12″ strip of Designer Series Paper, then used coordinating color cardstock, the two handles are 1/2″ x 11″ and the base is 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ scored  at 1/2″ on all four sides (clip corners). (You can also cover the outer top and bottom edges with 1/2″ x 12″ strips of matching card stock for a finished look.

The second project is this glitzy gift bag, everyone loved using the heat embossing tool! I don’t think the photos do this justice, it is just so sparkly! This gift bag would be perfect for giving some jewelry, gift cards, small items that will fit inside (inside measurement is 4 3/4″x 7″) – and the inside is a food safe interior if you want to put your handmade treats inside!

The third project we made is this adorable Christmas Quilt themed pizza box. The felt embellishments are just the shining star here. Pizza boxes are so versatile and are food safe also, and can fit a gift card holder or small gift as well. (inside measurements are 3″x3″).

And since we always share a card as well as our 3-D creations, here is a sweet and simple coordinating card.

We have a give-away! Just comment on each blog with the hashtag #SFbloghop2017 and leave a comment (tell me what you love about my projects).
