I wanted to show you what my projects were for my monthly Bingo Night. I’m tickled pink that I have had such a great response to Bingo Nights, and I know I’m not the only one who looks forward to this fun night out!

(I either need to get a bigger house, or start renting a space to have it so I can open it up to more people, I hate to leave anyone out).

These cards featured mostly Holiday products, let me know what you think!

Creative Inking-Two Step Stamping Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our July Blog Hop with a great group of 10 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! I’m sure you’ll enjoy all these wonderful samples of Two-Step Stamping, I have to say, it has become one of my favorite techniques since we launched our photopolymer stamps a few years ago. If you happened to stop by earlier today, thanks! If you just arrived from Colleen’s blog- thank you for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy our offerings this month!

First up is a fun new stamp set from the catalog called “Fabulous Flamingo”, I just adore this set and love how perfectly this sentiment from “Eastern Beauty” completes this card (it was a new release bundle in May and I just can’t stop using it- I’m crazy about cursive fonts!!).  This flamingo is actually a 4 step stamp, with three colors and after the two step stamping, there are two more different steps. (It’s not hard at all, I promise- if I can do it, you can too!)

Next up is a card I featured at my Stamping Bingo last month. All the ladies loved getting their hands on this exclusive hostess stamp set called “Tranquil Tulips”. (this stamp set can be your free choice with an order of $150 or more as your “host rewards”… if you have a long wish list, I’d love to help you!) Of course, can you tell I had to keep using the greetings from Eastern Beauty stamp set? I love this little “hello” don’t you?

When I was trying to decide on the colors, I kept playing with the new In Colors, once I paired it with my two new favorites, it made this card a breeze- Lemon-Lime Twist and Fresh Fig with a Very Vanilla base… it really helped make the Designer Series Paper “pop” a little bit, don’t you think?

 

 

Here are the supplies used for the Flamingo Card: (if you click the image it will take you to my store and you can add it to your shopping cart):

Creative Inking- What Goes Around

Hello friends,

Welcome to the May Blog Hop of the Creative Inking Crew. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from the US and Canada, and we bring you inspiration each month.

This month, our theme is “What Goes Around”, and I have decided to feature the cards from the new Eastern Palace Suite that Stampin’ Up! launched on May 1st for customers (demonstrators were able to pre-order it in April).  I advertised the special bundles at my stamp camp and to my customers last month and had a group jump at the chance to have this gorgeous bundle with FREE products as well! As a reward, for everyone who ordered this bundle from me by May 4th, I offered a special class on Wednesday night. Here are the cards we made and I’m throwing in some recent club cards I made so you can see that the possibilities are endless with this suite.

First up is a card featuring our new very vanilla note cards!

This card features our gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) and right under the word “thank you” is one of the gorgeous new gold metallic stickers-yes, that’s right, I said stickers! They are so fun!

This card includes our fun new tassels, some gold foil specialty paper under the die-cut out shape, and more gold stickers! I love the new In-Colors included in this bundle, here on this card I’ve used Lemon Lime Twist with Fresh Fig.

This card was a “wow” card- with some “fussy cutting around the edges of the largest medallion gold sticker. This new color is called Tranquil Tide. A complimentary color to this suite is Dapper Denim from our returning In-Color collection.

Everyone loved making these cards, what do you think?

 

Let me also share with you two cards I featured at my clubs this month, this first one is my own design- featuring the new gorgeous In-Color Lemon Lime Twist! I LOVE it!!

 

This card was inspired by Patty Bennett- when I saw that she had created a sunflower card out of the Eastern Palace Suite, I wanted to see if any other demonstrators had done any sunflowers too. I found a simple card made by Julie D (the paper pixie) and I decided to CASE (copy and share everything) her design for my club members. They loved it and some of them even stepped it up and added some die cut words, and embellishments. (I wish I had thought to take photos of all of them- they were great!).

HERE’S MORE INFORMATION on the two bundles Stampin’ Up! released from the Eastern Palace suite for EARLY customer purchase – these offers are good only until May 31. Get these bundles now- before the products become available in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, (which begins June 1.) *Note that these items will not be offered as a bundle with free product after May 31st (everything will be available individually).


 

Don’t you just love the font? It’s gorgeous!

Here’s a FREE pdf to create three beautiful card ideas using the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle.

You can print a flyer here of what is included in the two bundles.

 

The starter bundle (147196, $60.50) includes FREE Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes. (Does NOT include the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.)

 

The premier bundle (147207, $103.50) includes FREE Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes & NEW Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock (8.5 x 11). It does include the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.

BOTH bundles include THREE of the NEW 2017-2019 In Color Ink Pads, Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. These colors are so on trend right now!

Don’t these colors look gorgeous together?? I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on them! I was so thrilled to get them in April!

Creative Inking April Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!
Thank you for joining us for our next monthly hop- our theme is actually a Color Challenge and all the Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will be creating projects using Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo! Aren’t these colors just gorgeous together?? What does it make you think of? (Rainbow Sherbert maybe??)

I love a good challenge, don’t you? I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this month!

 

 For my first card using this color challenge,  I decided to do a watercolor wash on our shimmery white card stock, and then stamped right on top with a “day at the beach” stamp set. 


I also stamped it with a greeting from “endless wishes” (which is also retiring) to make this a fun card for someone about to travel, retire or move. 


Next stop was a technique called no-line water coloring. Basically you use the same ink color to stamp and watercolor the image.

What do you think of my two cards using this color challenge? Are you ready to create with these three beautiful colors? 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, please leave me a comment (scroll to bottom, enter where it says “leave a response”). 

Now are you ready to go see what the super talented Sandy Mott has prepared for us?? Me too! (click the next icon below to head to Sandy’s blog):

Creative Inking “Color My World” Blog Hop

ccbh-image

 

Hello Friends,

Thank you for joining us for the February Blog Hop of the Creative Inking team- a wonderful group of all Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. These ladies are just fabulous… be sure to click “Hop this way to the Next Blog” icon at the bottom of this post, and then on all the other blog posts- you will be amazed at the talent in this group!! A few of our regular members are off this month, but we have 8 amazing blogs for you to check out, and hopefully find some inspiration!

When I first saw the theme “Color My World”, I instantly thought of our new watercolor pencils! I absolutely LOVE them! In fact- they have proven to be more popular than Stampin’ Up! predicted, as they’ve flown off the shelves. So, in case you don’t have the pencils, I wanted to also show you some simple water-coloring with our inks.

First up is a birthday card I made for my dear dad:

The base is made with tempting turquoise card stock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″). I used silver foil specialty 12″x 12″ paper cut down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and embossed it in the new hexagon textured impressions embossing folder (tip: only use 1 cutting pad as this is a super thick folder). I used a strip of Party Animal Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the sentiments are from Big On Birthdays (page 6 from the Occasions Catalog).  I used the hammer from the “Nailed It” bundle on page 48 of the Occasions Catalog (you have to LOVE coordinating dies!) on watercolor paper with the watercolor pencils and aqua painter. Dad loved his card! (I had a big family dinner last night to celebrate my dad).

Next up, this trio I made with the Tuscan Vineyard set from page 95 of the Annual Catalog:

This card was water colored with the watercolor pencils on very vanilla card stock. The accent colors are old olive and rich razzleberry.

This card (and the next one) were made with our crumb cake note cards and I colored very lightly with elegant eggplant ink, the stamping was done in crumb cake and elegant eggplant.

This one is my favorite from my little trio, I water-colored with garden green and elegant eggplant ink. The “thanks” is from Cottage Greetings. These were fun and simple to color and put together. Great to make up a bunch and have on hand for thank you card when you need them!

I hope my post inspired you to try some water-coloring! I would love to hear from you, I treasure your comments! Thanks.

Creative Inking Blog Hop-Let’s Sale-a-Brate!

ccbh-image

Welcome to the 2017 Kick-Off of the Creative Inking Design Team! We are thrilled to have you visit our blogs today! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the USA… Today’s blog hop features products from the new 2017 Sale-a-Bration Catalog by Stampin’ Up! and since this is the magical time of year where Stampin’ Up! rewards customers (and hostesses and demonstrators), it’s a great time to Sale-a-brate and celebrate!

 

 

As soon as I saw the cute little trucks in the 2017 Saleabration catalog I knew that there would be a lot of fantastic uses, ice cream truck, taco truck, cupcake truck, the list goes on and on. This is the card I came up with for my Valentines card class I had the other night. This was my first choice stamp set out of the new Saleabration catalog I could not wait to get my hands on this cutie, it is free with your $50 minimum order.

.

I want to share with you a couple of treat holders I also came up with for my Valentine’s Day class. The little test tube is from the September paper pumpkin kit and I filled them with red and white candies called sixlits. The little chocolate holder was made with our tag topper punch (start with a piece of whisper white card stock that is 5 1/2″ long by 2″ wide, punch both ends, then fold in 1/2 and voila!)  This size holds one Ghirardelli chocolate candy and came together very easily with some washi tape, I stamped the image in melon mambo ink and punched it out with our sweetheart punch. (If you want to hold more than one Ghirardelli’s or different sized candy, you can play around with the length and score the bottom to make different size treat holders.)

 

 

These were all the cards my stampers made at class and they just loved them!

 

Well, that’s my offering for today, thank you so much for visiting my blog! I would love to hear from you, and would love to know what your favorite new product from the Sale-a-bration catalog is for 2017?? (scroll to the bottom to leave me a response- I read every one!) Then when you’re ready to hop to the next demonstrator- just click one of the buttons below.
