Fab Friday 144

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  We have a new color challenge for you over at Fab Friday today!  It seems that summer is quickly turning to fall since schools are starting (it seems way too early for me but whatever) but we have a pretty bright and summery seeming challenge for you.

However, I didn't got summery at all.  I actually wanted to try to do a Christmas card with these colors and I think I succeeded.  What do you think???

Ack!  I think it worked and I think I love it!  I based it off a card I'd seen by Brenda Nelson when I'd been stalking for sneak peeks during the Alaskan Cruise a few weeks back.

Don't forget you can order it next month AND if you order this month, you can earn bonus coupons to use towards it!  Five off for every fifty spent!  That's a good deal!!!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Color Your Season Some More

Hi stampers!  We have been busy with all the grandma's and grandpa's this week so I haven't been blogging, but I do have some time to share with you today.  I kept forgetting to share this awesome card with you!  There is still time to get your hands on the limited release Blended Season Bundle!

I was sold on this bundle for the dies alone, which you can see why in this card!

The stitched shapes are just so great as is that leaf!  A tip for the leaf, is that if you have some raised dots from the release holes, you can just rub them smooth with your bone folder.  I decided to give Brusho a go with the leaf stamp and I was not disappointed.  I embossed in gold and then very carefully shook a bit of the crystals in different colors and combinations.  I tried to stay near the middle to not get a lot on the surrounding paper.  Then, I blended them together a bit and spread the color out with my aquapainter.

The colors turned out to vibrant!  And they looked SO great on that woodgrain DSP!  For the life of the though, I don't remember where my sentiment is from :-)  Sorry!  I made it a long time ago and we've been so busy!

I hope you'll try this bundle and combine it with Brusho if you haven't!

Happy stamping!

Mailable Monday - Feathers & Frost

Hi stampers!  Quick card and quick post today!  I LOVED the Feathers & Frost set when I saw the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  I tried to resist but I couldn't.  I love the fonts and you know I'm a sucker for fonts and great sentiments and I mean, loooooook how cute!

It was made for the Blends so that's what I used.  I love how colorful but clean this is!  I think it will be an under-rated set but I LOVE it!  What about you?

Happy stamping!

Country Lane

Hi stampers!  It's been quiet around here.  We've been busy with Ian's birthday last week and my parents were here who also always keep me busy :-)  I suppose using the Country Lane suite is appropriate today because Ian went home with Granny and Grandpa to the farm!  I'm ALONE for the first time since we moved to Oklahoma (and longer than that lol)!  I thought I'd get a lot of stamping and blogging done but of course, that's yet to many things on my to do list lol!  But I had to post today, an IG follower asked to see something from this suite so here it is!

I stamped and colored this as soon as I got my order but the one side is cut off a little so I set it aside but I decided it was too pretty to not use!  It's made for the Blends'll see some new colors from the Holiday Catalog.

I also used the new Galvanized Metallic Paper and it's so cool!  I was a little skeptical since we already have silver but this is so different!  It's shiny yet more matte at the same time and really does look like galvanized metal!  Pair it with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (say that 10 times fast lol) and it's amazing!  I also dabbed it with a little Copper Shimmer Paint which is new!  We have had it in the past (and I still have mine) but not in this color!  And here's a tip; if your paint daubs on too heavy, just use a paper towel to blend it around a little bit.

I'm trying to limit my DSP purchases because I never use enough of it so I actually didn't get the paper that coordinated with this suite, but it IS so pretty!  Instead, I used some of the Share What You Love DSP.  Don't forget to mix and match in your suites!

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek and I hope I get some time to sit down and create today ;-)

Happy stamping!
