Balloon Celebrations Video

 So today I've finally got a video for you.
I'm sure you've seen cards using the Black and White Stripes on Pinterest. They are all stunning. This is my take with the Neutrals Collection Designer Series Paper and the Balloon Celebrations bundle. Save 15% when you get the bundle, which includes the stamp set and matching punch.
Card Base, 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2" Thick Whisper White Cardstock
Striped Designer Series Paper, 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Basic Black, 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
Thick Whisper White, 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Check out my video for all the details. Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube Channel at the end!
Here is a list of all the products I used in my video.

A couple more samples for you. This one I used Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo.
 This one I used Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron.

Which is your favorite? Maybe I should have added some Rhinestones to the other two cards.......hmmmm, what do you think? Rhinestones, or NOT?

Have a great week-end!

What I Love, Sale-a-bration Stamp Set



It seems here lately that Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron are my "go to" In Colors these days. Maybe its because I love this lace ribbon. I stamped both flowers on another piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock (I love the thick cardstock) and cut them out. Then stamped the leaves with the Mint Macaron by stamping full strength and then again without re-inking my stamp. I did that 3 times and placed the cut out flowers off center a bit over the leaves, one with snail and the other on dimensionals. I added a Wink of Stella over both flowers which made it look like I colored it in a bit. Plus my flowers now sparkle. Win/Win!
I stamped the sentiment with Black Memento Ink off to the side, added my lace ribbon and glued it with snail to my Watermelon Wonder card base cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored in half at 5 1/2". The Thick Whisper White is 4" x 5 1/4".

You know you can get this stamp set for FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration. Time is running out, you only have until March 31, 2016.

Happy Birthday Paper Pumpkin


Hard to believe that Paper Pumpkin has been around for 3 years. Next month our boxes won't be orange, they will be Bermuda Bay.
Here is an alternate project using the supplies from this months Paper Pumpkin.
One of our favorite things to do is mix and match other Stampin’ Up! products with Paper Pumpkin. Use the Dots and Stripes Decorative Mask, a Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Pad, and a Sponge Dauber to lightly stamp a background on a Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bag. Then, insert a card and/or treat for a perfect little birthday gift.
These are all the supplies you will receive in the re-fill kit.  You can now order re-fill kits as long as you are already are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, which is one of the perks of being a subscriber. Re-fill kits don't come with the stamp set. #141336
This is the stamp set that came with this months kit. Super Cute, don't you think. I've already used this stamp set for some Easter Goodies. I will be sharing those this week. I love the font is this stamp set too. Now we need a couple of punches for those cute flowers......just sayin'......

Party Pants Birthday Card

Here is another card using the NEW, Party Pants, Sale-a-bration (SAB) set. This stamp set goes so well with the It's My Party Suite of Products. I used Washi Tape on top, then the Designer Series Paper and the Lots of Labels Framelits and the Fun Baker's Twine Combo Pack.
The sentiment is punched with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and matted with the 1 3/8" Mint Macaron Circle Punch.


I added the little cupcake from the Party Punch Pack. Stamped it in Melon Mambo and Mint Macaron and layered them together. And lets not forget that the Balloon Banquet Punch coordinates with this stamp set too! Score!

Don't forget you can get this stamp set for FREE with you place a $50 order in my Online Store.




Have a great week-end,

February Paper Pumpkin, Oh My!

Ok, every month we get a better k. This one is no exception. Check it out!

These are two of the cards you can make with this kit. Super cute, right?
The one on the left is also one of the original cards. The one on the right is my alternative. I only added the 2 1/2" Circle Punch in Whisper White, and the flowers are from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and some Pearls. The kit comes with Blackberry Bliss ink, I added Pool Party and Calypso Coral, and my card base is 4 1/4" x 11" in Calypso Coral.

The Envelopes in this kit are so pretty, I just couldn't leave them as envelopes. I cut the whole center of the envelope out and added a couple stamped flowers.

Check out these cute stamps that come with the kit. I will be using these stamps a lot. I love the font, and I think the hello sunshine sentiment is just so cute, don't you think?

Pedal Pusher Valentines Card

This is the card I made for my husband.

Another Brand New Sale-a-bration stamp set. I cased this right off the brochure.

For my card I used the Color Me Irresistible Specialty Paper. Tell me why I haven't used this paper before? I sponged some Lost Lagoon (sad this color will be retiring in May) ink over the entire piece cut at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2", then I put a tick mark at 2 1/2" on the right side, and a tick mark at 2 1/2" on the left. Put it in my paper trimmer and cut from the 2 1/2" to the 3 1/2" which gives you this nice angle. Now you have another piece and you can make two of these cards. 

I added half of a Doily with Snail and 3 pieces of Linen Thread tied in a bow to finish it off. The Bike is colored with the Wink of Stella and some Lost Lagoon re-inker. The hearts were colored the same way with Blushing Bride re-inker. The basket is stamped with Crumb Cake and I added a bit of "Stella" to it as well. 

TIP: If you are going to be water coloring make sure you use either Basic Black, Archival Ink or Black Stazon Ink. This way your ink won't smear.

You can get this stamp set for FREE with a $50 order.

Party Pants, Brand New Sale-a-bration Stamp Set

It's Tuesday and time for another round of Stampin' Up! Only Challenge. This week its all about Sale-a-bration. You can play along too: http://suochallenges.com/


Isn't this a fun stamp set? It works perfectly with the It's My Party Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Enamel Dots, and Washi Tape. 

Base of my card is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Sahara Sand
Melon Mambo is 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
It's My Party Designer Series Paper is 3" x 4 1/4" 

I added Washi Tape to the center of my card. I just eye balled it. (I'm such a rebel.....). Added the designer paper onto the Melon Mambo and added dimensionals to the back and added it to my card base.

Stamped the Balloon 3 times. Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron. Notice the Wink of Stella highlights to each balloon and the Enamel Dots? I added some Whisper White Baker's Twine to each balloon and tied them up with a bow. Added my greeting to the Mini Macaron balloon along with a dimensional. The other two balloons were snailed on and then added the Mint Macaron balloon. The Balloon Punch works perfectly with this stamp set.

I thought it would be fun to decorate the inside too with Washi Tape and a Washi Tape Balloon.


This set it isn't in the Sale-a-bration Catalog, #141327, but you can get it FREE with a $50 order. 

I would love to see what you come up with for this Challenge:http://suochallenges.com/.

Valentines

Between all three of my grandkids we needed about 90 Valentines. Yikes!
They had to be simple. Tags all ready to be stamped.
This is Jocelyn. She is using a retired stamp set for hers. I can't remember which one and I put all my retired stamps away........

Gianna (my crafter) wanted to use the Bloomin' Love set. She did some that were Bermuda Bay and Some Melon Mambo.

We stapled the tag to the bag of treats.

Added that cute little heart from the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper. I think we ended up skipping the ribbon. Kids don't care. But one thing both of the girls said, we are the only ones that "make" our Valentines. They had a sense of pride, I think. Made me feel good.

This one the hearts are Silver Glimmer Paper.
For my grandson, (he was at his Dad's house, so my daughter and I made his), we used the No Bones About it stamp set. It was perfect for a "boy" Valentine, and he loved them. I think he was a little sad he didn't get to stamp them, but they had one Holiday and we had to get them done or they wouldn't get made.

For his, they all have a Red Glimmer Heart.
These were the treats my daughter bought. They all had something different.
