We Create Blog Hop- November!

 

Hi there Stamping Friends!

Welcome to our November Blog Hop! We create two projects- one simple and one “stepped up” to showcase how just a few added embellishments can really make a difference!

Today I’m showing off a card that was inspired by one of my downline, Lisa Mackey. She made this card for everyone as a gift at our team retreat last weekend up in the Adirondacks. We had a gorgeous weekend and enjoyed long walks outside, fun crafting inside and yummy food all weekend long!

Here is Lisa’s original card, notice the crumb cake piece- she hand-scored all those lines! Isn’t this a gem?? Love it! Copper Foil sheets make great leaves!

 

Here is my “case” (Copy and Share Everything):

 

And here is my stepped up version:

So there are actually 3 card ideas for you showcasing our awesome Stampin’ Up! Products. If you have any questions about what I used, please let me know- I’m happy to help you!

We Create Blog Hop September!

Hi Friends!  Did you just hop on over from the amazing Jeanna’s blog?? I just adore her work! Happy September 1st! I do NOT know where the summer went, it just flew by, didn’t it? I’m hoping the weathermen are right that we are going to have a warm September and October! Did you know that TODAY is the first day of the new 2017 Holiday Catalog, and OMG- it is just fabulous! Here is a link to the catalog online (just click the photo of the catalog below) and/or if you need a catalog and don’t already have a demonstrator, then message me your address and I’ll be happy to mail you one!

 

This is a monthly blog hop of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who create one project and then “Step it up” to show you how some slight changes in product and placement can make a big difference! Sometimes I do this with my clubs and classes- it is a terrific way to showcase new embellishments and products!

 

 

My cards today are made with the new gorgeous bundle called “Snowflake Sentiments” (item #146053 for clear mount; or item #146052 for wood mount, found on page 35 of the Holiday Catalog). The sentiments are so sweet, on the inside I stamped the greeting: “Wishing you a season of joy, a season of cheer, but most of all- a wonderful year”. (I forgot to take a picture).  The dies are amazing, and love how the the little holes pop out of the snowflake outline die. So sweet.

 

 

For my second card, the “stepped up version” I used the silver foil paper to cut the intricate snowflakes out. I love how sparkly this card is, so fun to make!

 

What do you think? Are you eager to get creating some Holiday cards?

We Create Blog Hop June!

 

 

 

Welcome to the June edition of the We Create Blog Hop- a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who hope to show you some ways you can “step-up” your projects with a few simple modifications.

First up is a simple card that my guests will be making at my Open House tomorrow night- I always like to have a little Make-and-Take featuring new products whenever I have a New Catalog Launch Party. This card features our New Very Vanilla Note Cards! Love them so much! This card also features a stamp set from my favorite new bundle- Wood Words. Love the Wood Grain Designer Series Paper Stack too (this little 6″x 6″ stack is a MUST HAVE- every piece is wood grain, and the front/back match each other! perfect for our little wood crates!!)

For my stepped up version of this card, I added the little rooster, a breeze to make with our awesome new dies! I used one piece of the wood crate and folded it over to make this card front. I used Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler inks.

What do you think? I love to hear from you- just scroll all the way to the bottom and leave me a comment, I really appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment, I treasure every single one.

Also, if you are interested in joining my 2017 Ribbon Share, there is still time, just scroll below to learn more!

Ribbon Shares are Here!

With the launch of the new 2017-18 Catalog on June 1st, I have been working on a new Ribbon Share deal for you. It was a little more difficult this year as we have over 50 new ribbons in the new catalog and they are absolutely gorgeous! It was a hard decision to make, but I am finally ready to promote my 2017 Ribbon Shares!

Here are the details of my 2017 Ribbon Share: 

  • $50 per person for each ribbon share, plus shipping (or you can pick up at my house).
  • You will receive 2 yards each (consecutive cuts) from 10 new ribbon types, with 34 colors/styles for a grand total of 68 yards of new Ribbon!
  • Payment is due in Full by June 3rd, and will work in groups of 5 people per share (all the ribbons I have selected are in 10 yard rolls, so I need 5 people to make up a “share”). If I don’t have enough to complete a share, I will go in the order that I received payment to fulfill the request.
  • I will order all the ribbons on June 3rd and they should arrive by June 13th if nothing goes on back-order. I will need a few days to cut/wrap and prepare the ribbons for you. My goal is to have it ready by June 17th (so I can bring them with me to the BOGO sale, if all goes well).

Here’s what you will be getting 2 yards each of the following ribbons/colors:

  1. 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in 5 colors: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide
  2. 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding in 4 colors: Berry Burst, Emerald Envy, Night of Navy, and Peekaboo Peach
  3. 1/4″ Stiched Edge Ribbon in 4 colors: Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry
  4. 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon in 3 colors: Crumb cake, Soft Sky, and Whisper White
  5. 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon in 3 colors: Calypso Coral, Island Indigo and Lemon-Lime Twist
  6. 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon in 4 colors: Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Powder Pink
  7. 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon in 3 colors: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive
  8. 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in 5 colors: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum
  9. Mini Sequin Trim in Basic Black
  10. 3/8″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon in Gold and Silver

*I am using hostess benefits to throw in the Basic Black Mini Sequin Trim and the Silver and Gold Metallic-Edged Ribbon as additional ribbons for you.

**If you were to purchase all of these 34 rolls of ribbon yourself, it would be over $300 to purchase these with tax and shipping.


Well, that’s it for today, thanks for visiting me twice today, it’s funny how the calendar works sometimes I have 2 Blog Hops on the same day.

We Create May Blog Hop!

Hello Friends!

Happy May! Did you have a nice weekend? I sure did! Lots of stamping fun for sure!  Today I am showcasing all of the projects at our Stamp Camp we had on Saturday morning.  Each stamper made 2 of the following cards and one treat holder (which doubled as a gift card holder too). (You saw my summer fun cards last week, but the others are all new designed specifically for stamp camp to showcase some products which are retiring and some which are continuing into the next catalog!)

So thrilled the Mini Treat Bag thinlit is returning! I don’t use this enough! It could hold candy, a gift card, gift certificate and much more. I used the DSP stack of our returning In Colors (Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum). I used So Saffron for the scalloped circle behind the Endless Wishes birthday cake and sentiment.

This card is similar to the summer fun card I made last week, this time I just stamped on colored card stock and trimmed down to fit amongst the watercolored images.

The Whisper White Pack of notecards was perfect for these cute thank you cards featuring Bella and friends as well as Pretty Kitty and Endless Thanks.

This card features Swan Lake, only we made them into little ducklings here.

Here I combined In the Meadow (retiring) with Up and Away (returning).

This adorable card was a favorite- and I cased this from a card given to me by one of my downline- thanks Tiff!

We had to move Stamp camp to the Charlton Freehold Presbyterian Church as my church accidentally doubled booked the room. I actually grew up in this church, and all went well.

We set up 6 tables, one for each project. We had 3 big shot stations, a catalog/ordering area and of course a snack bar.

I only got a few action shots, we were busy all morning. The ladies love the format of stamping at their own pace, and rotating around the room (it really makes for a fun and relaxing morning).

Huge thanks to my teammates: Laurie, Kathy, Sharon, Elizabeth, and Sheila for helping this event to be a huge success! And thanks to all who came out to stamp!

We’ll be planning another one this summer! Stay tuned!

Since today is May 1st- I have exciting news for you! Stampin’ Up! has a very special offer for you! You can order this new bundle STARTING TODAY-MAY 1!


HERE’S MORE INFORMATION on the two bundles Stampin’ Up! is releasing from the Eastern Palace suite for EARLY customer purchase – May 1 – May 31. Get these products up to a month before they are available in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, (which begins June 1.)

We Create Blog Hop- Step it up April!

 

Holy cow, how did it get to be April 1st? Did you play any April’s Fool’s jokes on anyone? Did anyone play a good one on you? I’d love to hear them all, leave me a comment (scroll all the way to the bottom of this page and type in where it says “Leave a response”) thanks!

Today’s post is a quick one, to showcase some recent cards I made and featured in my March Watercoloring Class at the Scotia-Glenville Continuing Education program. I’d love to hear from you- which one do you like best? 


This first card was made using So Detailed Dragonflies from the Occasions Catalog, Shimmer White card stock, Rich Razzleberry re-inker, Tempting Turquoise re-inker, (colored with the aqua painter) and finished with clear Wink of Stella. Can you see the shimmer on the wings of the dragonflies?


This card base was made with Watercolor Paper and our awesome watercolor pencils. I used Rich Razzelberry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight pencils and the aqua painter to blend. 




 Well, that’s it for now, are you ready to go check out the amazing Kimberley’s blog post? I love her work! Just click the “Next Blog” button below.

We Create Blog Hop- March Step it Up!

img_9579

Hello everyone, and welcome to our March Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who love to show you a simple project and then a “stepped up” version- it’s wonderful to get so many ideas and inspiration from this talented group!


First up is this sweet birthday card I made at a gathering of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator’s recently and this card was designed by the talented Jacqueline L. I love the watercolor wash on our watercolor paper that was with blushing bride ink. The three little succulents are die-cut from our new Oh So Succulent dies and the colors used are: blushing bride, pear pizzazz, and sweet sugarplum. The happy birthday greeting is from “rose wonder”. (also Gorgeous Grunge was used to add the little dots).

 


When I got home from the gathering I knew that this would be a perfect card to use for our blog hop- to show a “stepped up” version and show off our new glimmer paper. (this was a new addition to our Saleabration items that we launched on February 21). And this card I made especially for a dear friend’s birthday. I know she treasures hand-made cards. I did use the sweet sugarplum ribbon and stepped up the “happy birthday” greeting with the layering ovals dies.

 

What do you think? Do you like the dazzling dragonfly?

In case you missed it, here are the three new offerings for Saleabration:

I thank you all so much for joining us on today’s blog hop! I have another hop later tonight, I will probably be in bed when it’s published… But I hope you can pop back over and see some other awesome new creations.

Hi there friends! Welcome to our February edition of our We Create Blog Hop featuring all Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! I just love this hop, and am always inspired by the talent in this group, I always learn some new fun technique and am inspired by the projects created!

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! (If you want to see the other 4 Stamp-a-Stack cards, be sure to head back here on Friday for all those details. For my “stepped up card” I have someone special in mind who would love to receive this in the mail.
