I’ve Got a Crush on You!

Concord Crush that is! Isn’t this color yummylicious? Is that a word? Not sure, but it sure describes this card. And not just for the cupcake!  This card is part of a group of cards that I made for a display board at the Asheville Retreat – the stamp set is Sweet Cake. It’s available through the end of April in the Mini Occasions Catalog as well as the Wisteria Wonder polka dot dsp featured in the Sweet Shop DSP paper pack. This is an easy card to make – just Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, and Concord Crush colors. I’ll be posting the rest of the cards in the next couple of days. But be sure to get your Concord Crush on because it will be retiring the end of May as part of the 2010-2012 In Colors. A new set of In Colors will be revealed in the new 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalog in June.

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Sweet Cake; Cardstock:  Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush; Ink:  Concord Crush; DSP:  Sweet Shop; Accessories:  Dimensionals, 1/2″ Concord Crush Poly-Stitch Ribbon.

Mocha Morning for Dad

Quick post before I head out the door to go grocery shopping! Stampin’ Up!’s Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper is great for making men’s cards too, like this one for Father’s Day. The colors are great – Soft Suede and Early Espresso, and this was one quick card too. To make this card especially manly, I pulled out my Big Shot and embossed the strip of Soft Suede CS behind the wording with  the Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  See you tomorrow with another Mocha Morning DSP card!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Delightful Dozen; Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and Soft Suede; Ink:  Early Espresso; DSP:  Mocha Morning Specialty; Accessories:  5/8″ Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Dimensionals, Big Shot, Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

It’s Going to be a Mocha Morning Kind of Week!

So much going on right now and I haven’t had a chance to post lately, but while brainstorming last night I remembered I hadn’t shared my Mocha Morning cards from my North Carolina retreat display board on my blog yet. So that’s what I’ll be doing all this week. After you see these cards, you will realize that if you haven’t purchased this lovely Stampin’ Up! Specialty Designer Series Paper yet, you must. But you will have to do it soon as it will be retiring as all good Stampin’ Up! designer series papers do when a new catalog comes out.  And that will be early this year, with the new catalog making its debut in June instead of July.  So I hope you enjoy my Mocha Morning DSP creation today and keep coming back for more the rest of the week.  This is my favorite of the bunch!

Here is a pic of me and my friend, Bonnie Henderson, another SU! demonstrator, who organized the retreat that I attended last month in Asheville, NC . Bonnie was also my roommate and we had so much fun – staying up until the wee hours of the morning laughing at each other’s escapades from years long ago! Thanks Bonnie for allowing me to teach at your retreat and I look forward to doing so again in the fall.

Here is another pic of a great bunch of gals that attended one or both of my classes that I taught at retreat.  They are referred to as the Tennessee Gals. They were so fun and willing to share all their ideas with me as well as including me in with their lunch and dinner groups.

Two of my friends that I met at retreat last fall, Kathy Williams and Sandy Sluder, both from Tennessee, were unable to attend this spring retreat so I decided to swing up through Tennessee on my way back home to Maryland and had dinner with them at the Chop House in Kingsport and got to share all my cards and ideas with them that we did at retreat. It was such a pleasant evening catching up with each other. For some reason my flash was not working on my camera and the room was so dark those pics did not turn out so I don’t have them to share with you.  But here is one of the Tennessee mountains that I took when I was on my way to meet up with them. Such a pretty state!

Supplies:

Stamp Sets:  Bordering on Romance (Mini Occasions – last day to order April 30) and Party Time; Cardstock:  Textured Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso; Ink:  Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Lucky and Limeade; Specialty Designer Series Paper: Mocha Morning; and Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Linen Thread, Basic Pearls, Aqua Painter, Dimensionals and Itty Bitty Backgrounds (retired).

Sugar & Spice – That’s what Girls are Made of!

My neighbors, Phil and Mary, just had a beautiful baby girl, named Catherine Rose. I decorated this cute frame with some flowers to spice it up for their little beauty. Thanks Mary for letting me have my baby fix this morning. I used the new Mixed Bunch stamp set from the Mini Occasions catalog along with the coordinating Blossom Punch to make the flowers. I stamped the flower image in Pretty in Pink and punched out centers of the same color card stock. That’s what’s great about Stampin’ Up! products – coordinating colors in everything from ink, cardstock, markers, ribbons, buttons, etc. ! I added the new 8 mm pearls to the centers of the flowers and on the bow which I made with my Perfect Bow Maker. The smaller flowers were made with the Boho Blossom punch and the Basic Pearls. I added all the flowers to a base which I made out of chipboard covered in Twitterpatted DSP and hot glued to the front of the frame. I also modge podged the large flowers so I could form them to flip up on the edges. Both the chipboard and the modge podge gives the flowers stability as well. I used the Two Step Bird punch (wing section) to make the leaves out of Certainly Celery card stock and sponged them on the edge to give them some depth. I used my Perfect Bow Maker to make the Pretty in Pink Bow. What a sweet little girl full of sugar and spice!

Supplies: Stamp Set: Mixed Bunches; Cardstock: Whispering White, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery; DSP: Twitterpatted; Ink: Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery; Accessories: Punches: 3/4″ Circle, Boho Blossom, Two Step Bird and the Blossom Punch, 5/8″ Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Basic Pearls and 8 mm Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Linen Thread, Chipboard, Frame, Modge Podge and Glue Gun.

Twitterpated Dare to Dream!

Remember in the Bambi movie, when all the animals in the forest became twitterpated, well that’s the way I feel about Stampin’ Up’s new Twitterpated Designer Series Paper from the new Mini Occasions Catalog! So much in love with it that I had to create something fun and creative for one of my upcoming classes entitled “Dare to Dream”.  I love all sides of the double-sided paper and had a hard time trying to decide which ones to use because I wanted to feature them all, but I had to draw the line somewhere. Some of the other items from the new Occasions Catalog are the Elegant Bird and Designer Rosette Bigz Dies, along with the wording from Loving Thoughts, the flowers from Bordering on Romance and the banner from Take it to Heart.  All that beautiful DSP was applied to Stampin’ Up!’s Decor Blocks. The application was very easy – just used a glue stick. I was able to hammer a screwdriver in the tops of the blocks easily to insert my Lollipop Sticks which were wrapped in Sticky Strip in a candy stripe pattern and then applied Dazzling Diamonds glitter to them to dress them up a bit. It might be hard to see in the picture, but they do dazzle in person. The Lollipop Sticks are kept in place with just a mini glue dot on the tip before insertion in the block.  If you would like to make one of these creative displays, I will be offering two classes in my home studio on March 8, 2012 – one at 10:00 am and the other at 6:00 pm.  The cost is $20.00 and you must RSVP and prepay by March 1.  See you in class!

Forever and Always

I recently attended a Tickled Pink Party held by one of my Sherindipity Stamper’s, Erika Clark. Erika is such a wonderful hostess and supplied us with great make & take projects and her yummy Ziti was to die for. She also had plenty of pink snacks on hand. Our swaps had to have pink incorporated somehow. Here is mine:

I will post the other attendees’ swaps and all the cute gifts we received from Erika on another day. You will definitely be impressed – everyone had such beautiful projects. But first let me tell you alittle about mine.  I made the wrap using Pretty in Pink CS and the measurements for the main piece are 4″x12″ with scorings at 3″, 7″ and 8″. The scoring at 3″ will be the front flap of your project and I embossed that flap using the new Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which gave it that cute little scallop edging. Punched a trim using Island Indigo CS and the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I adhered the trim to the back of the front flap and Sticky Stripped it down closing my wrap. I adhered a strip of the new Twitterpatted Designer Series Paper to the top and ran a length of the new Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon across it. Stamped my images using the Take it to Heart Stamp set. The same one I used on yesterday’s project. Hearts were punched out with the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies and the Heart Punch. Added some bling with the new 8 mm Large Pearl Basic Jewels and a Blushing Bride Designer Button from the Twitterpated collection. Forever and Always is from the new Loving Thoughts stamp set and I received the stamp set as part of my Leadership package.

 I filled my swaps with Rice Krispie heart treats that I made with my grandson, Andrew. We had fun making them, and as you can see he wanted to be completely hands on in the cooking process. We also cut out the centers and added one of the yummy gummy heart candies from yesterday’s project. Sorry I didn’t get a final pic, but we had to get them into the cello bags before they dried out. I used SU’s flat medium cello bags and they fit perfectly.

I can’t wait to cook in the kitchen with my other grandson, Owen, too but it will be alittle while yet.  Andrew will be 3 in March and I am so impressed with how smart he is already. Whenever we say goodbye to each other, we always say I love you and then we say Forever and Ever!  His sounds sorta like this: I love you Mimi! And then he says Foreva and eva! Melts my heart every time.

Love that kid and his smile!

Sorry about the sugar tasting Mommy! But we couldn’t resist.

He showed me some love in the pic with his cookie cutter! Isn’t he just adorable! I Heart him back. He actually even helped me with my swap applying dimensionals to the backs of the hearts.

On our way home from the party, I  took a pic in the town of St. Michaels – I found out the residents could purchase a heart for a $50 donation to a local charity and then they got to display their hearts on the telephone poles in town displaying their love to the world! What a great idea!

I also passed by a cute little candy store – do you think they may be wishing for snow on Valentine’s Day?

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Take it to Heart and Loving Thoughts; Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink, Island Indigo and Whisper White; DSP: Twitterpated;  Ink:  Blushing Bride; Marker:  Island Indigo; Accessories:  Big Shot, Hearts Collection Framelits Dies, Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Twitterpated Designer Buttons, Blushing Bridge 3/8″ Pleated Satin Ribbon, Sticky Strip, Scallop Trim Border and Heart Punches, Paper Snips, Basic Pearls and Large Pearl Basic Jewels, Mini Glue Dots, Linen Thread and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Take it to Heart

I’m back! I never did find my old camera so I finally had to buy a new one and now I have lots of projects to share!  This project was a gift for my hair dresser, Ashleigh, at West Wing Salon. She’s such a sweetie! I am meeting with her and her mom Friday evening to plan her wedding invitations. I can’t wait. She has a tight wedding budget, so I told her how she could save money on her invites. She’s planning on having a workshop with all the ladies in her family and her bridal party to earn all the products she needs to make her invitations with. Then I will show her how to make them and she will save herself oodles of money and will have the great memory of making the invites herself.

So this is the cute jar of goodies I gave her this morning – just in time for Valentine’s Day! I used the “Take It to Heart” stamp set featured in the new Mini Occasions Catalog as well as the Hearts Collection Framelits. Love the framelits – they are thin, wafer-like dies that perfectly cut out my stamped image of the boy and girl on the bicycle. There are 6 different sizes of hearts. The jar I used is a Collection Elite mini Ball jar that I purchased at the Big “W” and filled with yummy gummy heart candy I got from my local Amish Market. Wow, if you ever want to see a collection of candy you’ve got to go there!

Since the Ball jar lids are in two pieces. I put a couple of mini glue dots between the twist frame and the lid to hold it together. I then ran a length of Sticky Strip around the top edge of the lid and then ruffled my satin ribbon around the top as shown in the next picture, pinch pleating as I rounded the jar. I added some doubled up Dimensionals to the center of the lid.  The Dimensionals will keep the top cover that I will apply in the center level with the ribbon around the edge.

 I then used the #2 Circle Scallops Die and Real Red CS to cut a top for my jar. It fit perfectly!  I then stamped my main image in Real Red Ink and used the Framelit Die to cut out my image. The small assorted hearts are cut from the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die.

Do you like my perfect bow? Well, I learned a trick at Leadership Conference I will share with you later this week. I’ll never freehand another bow again!

Here’s an even better close up of the top of the jar.

 

Supplies: Stamp Set: Take it To Heart; Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink; Ink: Real Red; Accessories: Big Shot, Hearts Collection Framelits Dies, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die; #2 Circle Scallop Die, Dimensionals, 5/8″ Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Sticky Strip; Non-Stampin’ Up! Supplies: Elite Collection Ball Jars and Candy.

Enchanting Swap!

Camera is still MIA! Hoping it will reappear before I leave for Leadership this weekend. I don’t want to have to use my camera phone the whole trip so I am still searching. But I wanted to show you all my swap card so the camera phone it is.  I used the new Everyday Enchantment Designer Series paper because I needed something quick that would pack alot of elegance at the same time.  The Soft Suede flower is punched with the new Blossom Punch from the Mini Occasions Catalog. There is a matching stamp set to use with the punch called Mixed Bunch, but I didn’t purchase it as it comes as a part of my Leadership packet. I will feature it in another posting. However, so my blossom wouldn’t look naked I ran it through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to give it some texture. The center of my flower was stamped using a Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Fresh Vintage. This set coordinates with the Everday Enchantment Designer Series Paper. Both are available beginning January 24 in the new Sale-A-Bration catalog. Sale-A-Bration is a wonderful time to hostess a workshop! As Hostess you can earn FREE product in addition to the regular hostess benefits and as an attendee of a workshop with every $50.00 you purchase, you get FREE product! The Everyday Enchantment DSP and Fresh Vintage stamp set are two of the items you can get for FREE! My greeting is from another new stamp set you can get for FREE – it is called Elementary Elegance. It features a beautiful frame, two word greetings and some cute little stamps such as the butterfly featured next to my greeting. Pearls add a finishing touch to my butterfly and the center of my flower and some of the new 1/8″ Lucky Limeade Organdy Ribbon as leaves for my flower. Hope you enjoy!

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Elementary Elegance and Fresh Vintage; Cardstock:  Poppy Parade, Soft Suede, Lucky Limeade and Very Vanilla; Ink:  Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and Lucky Limeade; DSP: Everyday Enchantment; Accessories:  Blossom Punch, 1/2″, 1-3/8″ and 1-1/4″ Circle Punches, Oval and Oval Scallop Punches, Basic Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Very Vanilla 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and Lace Crochet Trim, 1/8″ Lucky Limeade Organdy Ribbon.

Tea for Two!

Yes, Please! Isn’t this teacup from Stampin’ Up!’s new stamp set, “Tea Shoppe”, absolutely wonderful?  The pansies on the cup are so delicate and are one of my favorite flowers – as a young girl I remember my mom planting them every year in our garden. This card is a great way to invite a friend over for tea and cookies and a chat come Springtime.  Yes, I know we are just coming up on winter, but we can plan ahead, can’t we?  Make a couple of these cards, then set aside a few days in March to invite a friend over, each on their very own special day. We are all so busy and our calendars get filled so fast these days, why not send them out now so you can make sure everyone’s date on their calendar is available, including yours! Get some girl time in! There are two new products featured here, along with the Tea Shoppe stamp set:  the Framelits Dies – Labels Collection and Embosslits Die – Fashionable Hearts. They become available for purchase on January 4 from the new Mini Occasions Catalog!

A Perfect Shade of Blue and Blog Candy!

A Perfect Shade of Blue Daisy

Blue Daisies! Only in the papercrafting world can you make any shade of flower that you want! LOL! I had been wanting to use Stampin’ Up!’s new Paper Daisies in the IB&C and decided what better way than to pair it up with the new Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper in the Mini Occasions catalog. This card was part of a Baggie Sampler that I created for my Sherindipity Stampers group meeting in January showcasing products from the new Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  The paper daisy was so easy to color! I used my Marina Mist marker and colored a little on each petal and then used my aqua painter to spread the color around. Use only a small amount of water with your aqua painter – do not soak your flower!  I dried it quickly using my heat tool. Repeated the process to  get a little tie-dye effect going on.  You can also color the daisy by placing a few drops of one of the reinkers into a small dish with some water and paint it on with your aqua painter.  But you don’t get as much control this way on how the color turns out I thought.  Any way you do it, it’s pretty easy. I then splattered some ink on the flower using my color spritzer tool and a marker to make it look real. I also folded up each petal for more definition.  I used the Punch Bunch from Sale-A-Bration to make the center of my flower.  Use markers on the stamp so you can color each section of the stamp. Don’t forget to huff on the ink to rewet it before stamping! The cute little hearts also express the perfect shades of blue too!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Nature Walk and Punch Bunch; Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and Marina Mist; Designer Series Paper:  Botanical Gazette; Ink:  Early Espresso and Marina Mist; Accessories:  Heat Tool, Aqua Painter, 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Itty Bitty Buttons, Linen Thread, Color Spritzer Tool, Early Espresso, Old Olive and Marina Mist Stampin’ Write Markers, Stampin’ Dimensionals, and Paper Daisies.

Easter Blooms - # 122057 Clear Mount/#121905 Wood Mount

BLOG CANDY!!!

Do you have a favorite shade of daisy?  Leave a comment below letting me know your favorite shade to win some blog candy shown here!  Check back on Friday for the winner! It is the stamp set featured in yesterday’s post – Easter Blooms.  I received this clear mount stamp set as a prize at Leadership, but I already have it in wood mount. Do you want to be the lucky recipient?

I prefer wood mount stamps myself.  I’ve been using them for 12 years – it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks. I just prefer the feel of wood in my hand.  But Stampin’ Up! now offers you a choice between the two styles of stamps that they offer. Clear mounts are great if you don’t have alot of storage space. They fit on a shelf just like your DVD’s.  The images are not attached to anything. When you are ready to use them, you just mount the image on a clear block and stamp away.  They also sell the empty clear mount stamp cases in a set of 4 for $4.95 (Item #119105). Watch for a new class I will be offering on how you can use the empty cases later this week!

What’s Hootin’ Valentine?!

It’s a New Year and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner already! I created this cute Valentine Card as part of a baggie book sampler that my downline group, Sherindipity Stampers, and I worked on last weekend.  We prepared samples using 7 different stamp sets to show our customers for upcoming workshops and open houses featuring stamps and accessories from the new Mini Occasions catalog which runs from January 4 – April 30 and the Sale-A-Bration catalog which runs from January 25 – March 31. Aren’t the little owls so cute? They are made by stamping the owl from the new “Punch Bunch” set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and then punching them out using Stampin’ Up!’s owl punch.  You can get this stamp set FREE with a $50 purchase beginning January 24! I was so happy with the way this card turned out, especially using the new Red Glimmer Paper from the Mini Occasions catalog, that I decided to use the idea for my scrapbook layout class that I will be teaching at a crop in Ocean City later this month at the Princess Royale Hotel.
