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.

Without further ado, here are my offerings for this month:

 

 

I used the simple card for my swap for my team get together last week and as one of my five cards for my Stamp-a-Stack class last night. Everyone loved it so much!

They’re Here! The New 2017 Occasions and SAB Catalogs!


Hello friends! Today is a very exciting day! Our new 2017 Occasions (aka “Spring”) Catalog and the 2017 Sale-a-Bration Catalog have launched today!! It is the most “wonderful” time of the year as Stampin’ Up! begins their generous rewards program to customers, hostesses, and demonstrators! My side bar has the new catalogs, or if you see a product below that you like, feel free to click it, and it will take you directly to my online store.

*Sorry if you were trying to get to my online store earlier today, Stampin’ Up! had an unexpected server issue that took hours to fix, it didn’t have anything to do with volume either, those poor IT folks, I can’t image how stressed out they must feel, hope they can feel cyber hugs from NY.

I’ve decided to also apply to become a “display stamper” for the next OnStage which I will be attending in Toronto, Canada (it’s the closest location from where I live in Upstate New York). So this blog post is created with the projects required for the application, and they are all New 2017 products, so I thought you would enjoy this post.

The first requirement is 3 Standard size greeting cards, I decided to showcase the awesome new Valentine’s products:

Can you see the wink of stella shining on that little wooden heart?

This time I first colored the wooden heart with real red marker, then added a touch of Wink of Stella for some more shimmer.

Now on to the scrapbook pages, I have been a huge fan of Project Life, the simple and easy memory keeping system by Becky Higgins… and am soooo thrilled that she partnered with Stampin’ Up! with some exclusive items just for us (not found in any store!). I can’t count how many albums I have made over the years, but I can say this is the best way to get photos in albums the quickest! (If you made a New Year’s Resolution to document your travels, family memories, special occasions and holidays- or hey, if you just want an album of your pets- that’s fine too!) I’m here to help you… In fact- stay tuned, I have some new classes coming up next month that will help you get your photos in albums too!




Now here’s what it looks like inside the albums:


Last, but not least, the application for OnStage asks for two 3-D items:


This easel stand 2017 calendar was fun to make! Don’t you just love the colors in this gorgeous new Designer series paper? it is called “Carried Away” and it coordinates beautifully with the Lift me Up Bundle in the new Occasions Catalog, but this paper is a FREE Sale-a-bration item with your $50 purchase- I love it!


And lastly, my second 3D project is an 8×10″ Love themed framed art piece, what do you think of my color palette? I love Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White together, do you?

Thank you sooo much for stopping by my blog tonight! If you’re on Facebook, don’t forget my New Catalog Launch Party at 8 pm Central Time- hope to see you over there, here’s a link:

Stampin Friends Spring Hop…

marchbloghopa

Hi there Stampin Friends! Welcome to our March Blog Hop featuring lots of Easter, Spring and soft pastel colors to inspire you! I can’t wait to see everyone’s creations! If you arrived from Leanne’s blog, WELCOME, and thank you for continuing with the blog hop! Isn’t she just amazing? I love her work- I love that her initials became her blog name “Literally My Joy”, isn’t that sweet? I got to meet Leanne last summer on my late night flight home from Convention in Salt Lake City, it was great meeting you Leanne! Hope to see you next month at OnStage!

We have three guest bloggers this month, be sure to check out their work (and remember to leave them a comment for the “Mystery Giveaway”):

  1. Barbara Welch
  2. Charlene Luks
  3. Cheryl Piotrowski

 

Ready to see what I have created for you this month? Here is an assortment of projects that I created for this theme of welcoming spring by using soft pastels:


First up a card using the stamp “swallowtail” from the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog. I used my sponge daubers to sponge on pastel colors all over this butterfly. After I was happy with the color I hand cut this butterfly out, and using my bone folder, gave it some 3-D.



The colors are used on the butterfly are daffodil delight, pink pirouette, pear pizzazz, and on the whisper white background I sponged soft sky.


Next up I wanted to make another card using the Rose wonder bundle. This was a big hit at my stamp-a-stack  class last month. It is so easy to remove the Rose piece from the die with the help of the new die brush and sponge pad, what a fantastic tool!!


The past few cards I have made with this technique were birthday cards, but I needed a special Easter card so I changed it up. Can you see the glimmer? The clear wink of Stella pen helped to glam this card up! I made this card by using the negative space from the card stock as my stencil to sponge on the pink and green ink for the background underneath the rose die.

 

Next up is my 3-D project I knew immediately I wanted to try my hand at a project that Erika Cerwin featured last spring on her blog using the intricate butterfly dies here on the curvy keepsake box. She made them in a variety of colors and they’re so beautiful. I followed her video and just added the wink of Stella clear glimmer pen over the vellum butterfly and on the circles made with the stencil and Stampin’ marker- can you see it?


These little treat boxes will be perfect for Easter or any get together really.

So what did you think? I would love to hear from you, I adore reading all of your comments, it really makes my day!

Wishing you all a very Happy  St. Patrick’s Day! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and remember to leave a comment with the #SFMarhop to be entered into the drawing.
