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!)

Stampin Friends Love Theme Blog Hop

16105586_10154776821071101_7119539629866751638_n

 

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! Thank you so much for joining us today, I hope you enjoy our new format for 2017! This month’s theme is Love and Valentine’s Day. If you’re following along the hop, you’ve arrived from Steph’s blog.

15894722_10154773448991101_1666745528435465476_n

 

First up are my 3-D creations for this hop. I have scheduled a framed art class around the theme love and Valentine’s Day and class members will get to pick which frame they would like to make. I wanted to go with “outside of the box” ideas, what do you think of these projects? I know many people like everything even/level, I went with my squares tilted in the red and white version. The punch art owl (in the red/white framed piece) was inspired by Dawn Olchefske (I am so crazy about owls, my friends and downline always share them with me when they find them on the internet). The little mini lights are battery operated, perfect for my table.

Next up is my Valentine’s Day card that I offered my club members this month and since I also offered a Valentines class last night and none of my club members took that class I was able to use this card again. (I never really use the card if the same stampers are going to be in the class I want them to always have different cards, it can get hectic to keep track believe me). Do you notice the stitched framelits I used for the whisper white square? I am so thrilled these are back in stock and available for you to order they flew off the shelves on November 1 and I can’t remember how long it took to sell out, just a couple days, but they are back now and hopefully here to stay until they launch in the new catalog in June. (they are my favorite die at the moment!)


And this cute little card I came up with to also offer at my Valentine’s Day card class, it’s so fun to feature the new products and mix in some old favorites from the annual catalog, don’t you agree?

You can see the products I used for these projects all the way at the bottom of this post. (If you click any image in that list, it will take you directly to my online store).

Don’t forget to click the Next button to continue on the hop with Cindy’s blog. Our complete group of hoppers for this month is listed below, in case you want to hop around, hop back or you lose your way and need to “reboot”… and scroll to the bottom for my very special offer!

Lots of Love! Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop! 

12495188_10153783583701101_8417573911987275800_n

This month our theme is “Lots of Love!” Well, I don’t know about you, but that has me thinking of Valentine’s Day and sharing some hand-made cards and gifts with the ones I love. I hope you like my projects! Did you notice one of Stampin’ Up!’s newest stamp sets in the 2016 Occasions Catalog called “Beautiful Ride”? The second I saw this stamp set, I just knew I needed it, I had a total flashback to all the old Herbie movies by Disney. Remember watching “Wonderful World of Disney” on Sunday nights?

lovebug1

 

Of course one of my favorite “Herbie” movies was Herbie Fully Loaded, with Lindsay Lohan in 2005 (it feels like just last year- not 11 years ago I saw this with my niece).

43641_1199632684778_full

 

I have been a huge Disney fan all my life, and so are my nieces and nephews. So I thought they would love a Herbie valentine card and gift card holder.

IMG_0144

 

I used so many new Stampin’ Up! products for these two projects, there is a complete supply list of everything down at the bottom of the page.

IMG_0145

 

I used a retired stamp for the “happy valentine’s day” sentiment- remember “Good Greetings” from last year? Well, it was too big to fit in the washi label punch- so I “extended” it- by slipping in the paper you can trim the ends and get the same washi label look.

IMG_0146

Since Herbie the love bug was a pale yellow (remember “barely banana”? that would have been a perfect color to match the original Herbie).  I used So Saffron and fussy cut the car out. Colored the wheels in with my black stampin’ write marker. Notice the shimmer on the windows? That is my new favorite – the Wink of Stella glimmer pen (clear). I just love how instantly it makes everything sparkle- and NO DRYING time! Love IT!!

IMG_0147

 

When I got the card to this point I wondered how to enhance it- so I stepped it up a bit:

IMG_0148

 

What do you think of this version?

Had to decorate the inside! love the stamps in the new “Going Global” stamp set! Perfect for Valentine’s day.

Custom insert to hold a gift card, for inside the Mini Treat Bag.

Well, that is my contribution to the January edition of the Stampin Friends Blog Hop. What do you think?

Creative Inking Blog Hop- Love is All Around

creative hop

 

Hi everyone, thank you so much for stopping here on our monthly Creative Inking Blog Hop! I’m so thrilled to be included in this talented group of ladies, every month I am so inspired by all of their creations and I hope you are too! This month our theme is “love is in the air”. I knew what I wanted to make and I went to get the sentiment “love you” out of the stamp case and it was missing, 😥. We used it at my Monday night monthly club last week, and I sure am hoping it turns up.

I just adore our new stamp set called “Bloomin’ Love”… I used our watercolor paper and white embossing powder, then did a watercolor wash with rose red reinker, and can you see the shimmer? That is our new Wink of Stella brush that really adds a sparkle to your lettering or stamped projects  (it comes in shimmer clear or gold-I use the shimmer clear on this card).

Of course this card was a breeze with our new mini stack of paper called Love Blossoms,  there are 48 pieces of paper in this pad and I just love the color schemes!

The finishing touch was the tiny heart punched out of our new blushing bride glimmer paper.

What do you think? I would love to hear your comments. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
