Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  

Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.

Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  

Happy Stamping!

Color Challenge

I am trying something new.  Every 2 weeks or so I want to have a challenge.  It might be a color challenge or sketch, etc.  For this week it will be a color challenge.  Try making a project using only these 3 colors and a neutral if needed.  I would love to see what everyone comes up with.  However I'm not sure how to make it so you can post your card on this post, if anyone has any tips for me please leave a comment.  I will do some research and hopefully figure it out.  In the meantime please leave a comment and I will be sure to check out your creation.  Good luck and have fun.

OMG!!!  I love this set from the occasion catalog.  When I first saw it I wasn't sure I was going to purchase it but let me tell you this has quickly become one of my favorite sets.  You can get this set in a bundle of 11 stamps and 12 dies.  There are so many possibilities with this set and it is so much fun to play with.  That awesome paper I used for the cups are in the sale-a-bration catalog on page 19.  It is a beautiful water colored look to the paper.  If you would like to own this paper you only have until February 15th to get it, all you have to do is place an order of $50 before tax and shipping and you can pick this or any of the items in the sale-a-bration catalog for free.

Remember pages 16-19 of the sale-a-bration catalog are only available until February 15th, however the items on pages 1-15 are available until March 31st.  Don't miss out on something you really wanted.  

Don't you just love the marbled look this paper gave to the cups.  The cup ring is from a stamp in the Timeless textures set (also in the occasions catalog), so much fun.

Happy Stamping!

For All Things

A little over a week ago we had our "Fall Fest" event.  There were 3 of us that designed for this event.  There were 11 cards and 1 pillow box.  It was a blast.  This is one of the cards I designed for this event.  This is very simple card to make and it turned it very nice. 

The DSP is called "Into the Woods"(139586) and is from the holiday catalog.  CS used is Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, and Whisper White.  The stamp set is "For All Things" (135152) in the annual catalog.  The "thanks" is a thinlit die called Greetings thinlits (138275) also in the annual catalog.  To finish it off I just wrap some linen thread (104199) around the stamped image a few times and tied and knot.  This would be a perfect Thanksgiving card or just a general Thank you card.

Fall Card

This is a card I made this week for a challenge that my upline was having to make a fall card or sympathy card.  This was a Thank you to some ladies I work with for a sympathy gift, so it almost fits in both categories. 

The color on this photo did not show up very accurately.  I used basic black and Pear Pizzazz CS.  I cut out the Thanks using a die from the Greeting Thinlits (138275) on page 172 of the big catalog, I then used the negative space and layered a piece of Cajun Craze CS behind it.  I embossed the Pear Pizzazz with the softly falling EF (139672) from the holiday catalog.  The leafs are left overs from the witching decor project kit, but you could use the Leaflets Framelits (138283) and cut them out in whatever color you want.  The ribbon is the basic black 3/8" stitched satin ribbon.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to take some time to stamp.
