Stampin Friends May Blog Hop


Hello Stampin Friends!

Welcome to our May Blog Hop- our theme this month is Flowers or Sympathy cards… I’m sure you will receive lots of inspiration from all of the talented stampers!

If you came to me from Raquelle’s blog- welcome! Isn’t she fabulous? Love her creations! Also, I’d like to give a shout out to Lori Mueller, our guest hopper this month! (we are in another hop together on the 20th of each month, you will love Lori’s projects, she is very inspiring!)


This is a card I created to incorporate both elements from this month’s theme, flowers and sympathy. Sadly, I’ve need far too many sympathy cards in the past few weeks and I depleted my stock in my own card rack. So I made up a bunch of these.

This card features the new Daisy Delight punch, stamp set (yes- it’s a bundle!) and the gorgeous Designer Series Paper. I used the greeting from Heartfelt Sympathy and used the smallest flower punch from the Tree builder punch to make the little yellow flowers (daffodil delight card stock) and then the small white centers are from the small hole punch.

Here it is without a sentiment so you can see the gorgeous DSP.

I totally ran out of time to make a new 3D project… my apologies. I thought I would share the two 3D projects I featured for my last WTGD (Way to Go Day) for my top 4 ladies on my team. This is a new quarterly rewards program I have started for this Stampin’ Up! year, the first one was in January after the first quarter was over. The second one was in April and featured these projects featured here, and we will have two more this year. Here is the original Blog Hop:

Sneak Peek!

This is a card that I prepared for our monthly team meeting at my upline’s house… Dania had just returned from the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to Fiji! It was great to hear her talk about the trip, see the lovely things she brought home, and learn more about the culture there. This card is a sneak peek of our new In-Colors! I’m in love with them!Baked brown sugar, coastal cabana, crisp cantaloupe, pistachio pudding, and strawberry slush are the 2013-2015 In Colors! I’m so thankful that Stampin’ Up! has a pre-order opportunity for demonstrators, and they offered us a new In-Color bundle!
Here is the same card made in a slightly different way, same colors, just colored them in another way:

Which one do you like better? I used the reinkers for the 5 new in-colors with a dry aqua painter, and colored directly on the big new background stamp called Wildflower Meadow. Notice anything else new? This is the new Artisian label punch, and a new stamp set called Label Love! If you are interested in how you can get these items early, you can pick them in your starter kit! Contact me for more details!

Here is a card that Jan Heggan brought for us to make, this adorable tea pot card was make with our oval framelits and oval punch. Fun, fun!!


And here is a card that Karyn Morrison prepared for us to make:
Isn’t this little lion just adorable? This card was made with our punches, and is a bright and cheerful card for a kids birthday, I think.

Hope you all have a great day! And happy stamping to you!
