Stampin Friends Birthday Surprise Blog Hop!

 

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to our April installment of the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! First, let’s welcome our guest hopper this month, it is Jennifer Knape Cerizo! I can’t wait to see her creations! Welcome Jennifer!! And if you’ve arrived here from Lana Staab’s blog- thanks for joining me!

This month our theme is Birthday Surprise! I thought I would showcase some of my favorite retiring products! Day at the Beach is from our outgoing 2017 Occasions Catalog and Endless Wishes is from the 2016-17 Annual Catalog.

I started with our watercolor paper and stamped with Stazon black ink. Then I use our watercolor pencils to color in the images. I use the greetings from “endless wishes” and stamped with Versamark ink on black card stock and embossed with whisper white powder and our heat tool.

Of course a little wink of Stella helps make the images pop!

This card will be one of the greeting cards we feature in our upcoming stamp camp on April 29, it is easily customizable to any greeting you will need!

Just added a little flap at the bottom of the insert so it would hold a gift card!


My birthday surprise card and mini-treat bag coordinate beautifully and feature our brights color collection.


So what do you think? Can you believe most of these products are going away? Hurry if you want to get your hands on them, before they’re gone forever!

Ready to go check out what the rest of the bloggers have created this month? Just click each name in the list below. Have fun!

Click this image to see a list of items that are totally SOLD OUT, (also- check my website for updates as this list might have changed since yesterday): *Note Stampin’ Up! plans to manufacture stamp sets up to May 22nd, but all others are only available while supplies last.

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.

Retiring Past Paper Pumpkin Kits

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there. My dad is away this weekend, so we will be celebrating one night this week when he is home from camp. I decided to catch up on some work in the craft room, including blogging and sending some emails. I thought you would be interested to learn that Stampin’ Up! has announced that there will be some of our past kits that will be retiring on June 27th- so if you want them, get them before they’re gone!

 

http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=112102

Hurry and order before June 27th, after that they are “retired” and no longer available. As an added incentive, for any online orders between now and June 30th (including these Paper Pumpkin specials, OR anything you just want to order), I have a FREE gift for you- that I will pop in the mail (or local peeps I will give you) as my thanks! I am very close to reaching my sales goal for the month of June, and I need a little help to push me over, (about $500 away from a sweet spot too). So,  I will give you either a clear “D” size paper pumpkin block or one sheet of dimensions with each $25 order from my online store. You must use Hostess Code: XFNCQJF2
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful afternoon.
