Fab Friday 97

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  And can you BELIVE that it's almost October already?  September has gone by in a flash!  I am ready for all things fall including cooler temps!!!!

Things have been quiet here as I was on vacation with my in laws so hopefully I'll get into the swing of sharing once things are back to normal ;-)

At least I have Fab Friday for you!  This week is a sketch.


And since it's basically October, I had to do a halloween card!  I did a lot of distressing on this one to up the spook!
Make sure to check out all the inspiration and play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 96

Hi stampers!  At least we have Fab Friday to get me posting :-)  Happy Friday!  It's a happy one here since granny is here for a visit, we've been having a lot of fun and I got to run downstairs to stamp a little.  This week is a little color challenge for you!



I thought these colors would make some great succulents and I wasn't wrong!  I've been doing mainly holiday stamping so it was good to do something different as well!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Live, love, grow
Paper:  Very vanilla, emerald envy, fabulous foil designer acetate
Ink:  Basic black, delightful dijon, emerald envy
Accessories:  Lots of labels framelits, linen thread

Don't look too close or you'll see my sentiment is a little crooked, whoops :-)  That's the beauty of a handmade card though, right? And a quick word about that acetate...it comes with a clear protective backing that you peel off.  Some of it was peeling off and I thought oh no, it's coming apart!  But whew, it wasn't and I realized you had to peel it off, duh!

Make sure to check out the rest of the design team and leave them some love too!  And then play along of course!  I can't wait to see what you make with these rich colors!

Happy stamping!

Pretty Pinecone

Hi stampers!  So I haven't felt much like blogging lately...so I haven't, ha!  Seriously, I'm in a weird place right now as I'm stamping a little but I just have a lot to do lately and feeling overwhelmed and tired at night so I've been resting after Ian goes to bed.  So I apologize for not sharing much.  I realized a long time ago that I'm never going to be a perfect stamper and blogger and my stuff is going to come in spurts so I need to not stress out about it.  I'll post when I can/feel like it :-)  I'm trying to get more organized but I'm not making a lot of progress, ha!

Anyway, I have a simple card to share today.  If you were a part of my Facebook holiday catalog launch party you will have seen some details about how I made the pinecone.  Basically, I used my nail to turn up all the little triangles on the pinecone and then I hit them all with just a bit of clear wink of Stella so it looks like it's a little frosty!  Very pretty in real life!  And you really need to work with this die cut a little bit to make the points stand out or it's very flat and lifeless.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Oh what fun
Paper:  Whisper white, crumb cake, early espresso, garden green, warmth & cheer DSP stack
Ink:  Craft white, cherry cobbler
Accessories:  Clear wink of stella, decorative label punch, pretty pines thinlits, baker's twin trio

Hopefully I'll figure my life out and be back with something else soon :-)

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 95

And here's what I did with it:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:

I've been wanting to use this die since I got it so I finally sat down and got to work with it!   I think it makes a simple yet pretty card!  I used some dimensional behind and I stacked two of them together in the center.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Hi stampers!  Today begins the most wonderful time of the year, at least for me!  The Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog is live today!



You can now get your hands on all the yummy fall, Halloween and holiday products!  These really are my favorite occasions and holidays to make cards for.  If you need a catalog you can see it over on the side bar to the right or let me know and I'll get you a copy.  It's also not too late to join my virtual kick off party!  You'll get to see some of my samples earlier than on the blog and I'll be live streaming tips and tricks! You don't want to miss a party that you can have in your PJ's do you?

My card today is a super simple one and it would be great if you mass produce Christmas cards!  Simple and easy but I think it's pretty too!


Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Wonderful year, stitched with cheer
Paper:  Whisper white, cherry cobbler, emerald envy
Ink:  Cherry cobbler, emerald envy
Accessories: Holly berry builder punch

I LOVE this stamp set and this sentiment and the fonts!  Big stamps like this make great easy cards!  I used the holly stamps from the stitched with cheer set for a little accent.  See, quick and simple!

If you'd like to place an order please use the hostess code GSJPM7BG when you order.  

Again, hope to see you at my FaceBook party!

Happy stamping!

Summer's Almost Over...No Bones About It

Hi stampers!  I totally skipped over Halloween and went right to showing you Christmas stuff from the Holiday Catalog.  But, I love fall and Halloween too!  I need to sit down and make myself focus on some fall projects since it's quickly approaching!  It's almost September which to me, is the unofficial start of fall (even if it doesn't feel like it outside)!

I still can't believe that August is almost over though!  Summer seemed to take forever to get here and now it's over in a flash!  I was kind of sad about it but since our vacation I think I'm ready for fall to bring it!  I've been collecting some new fall clothes and I need to dig out the fall decorations!

Here's a cute little halloween card for you.  Isn't this little guy so cute?

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Labeler alphabet, cookie cutter halloween
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black, halloween night DSP
Ink:  Basic black
Accessories:  Halloween night washi tape, halloween night enamel dots

That cookie cutter punch is just too cute.  I saw somewhere that someone thought this little guy looked like he'd got shocked with a light socket and I totally see it, lol!  And you know I LOVE enamel dots!

Don't forget to check out my Holiday Catalog Virtual Launch Party on my FaceBook page!  You don't want to miss all the fun (in your PJ's if you so choose)!

Happy stamping!

Let's Party....

....a virtual party, that is!  Hi stampers!  The holiday catalog is quickly approaching, it goes live on September 1st.  Let's not talk about how it's almost September already!  I really am going to miss summer but I'm getting really excited for fall and winter and all the holidays that come along!  



Do you follow me on FaceBook?  You really should as it's easier to post there so I tend to post there more than I blog!  You can find me HERE.  I had an online "party" when the annual catalog came out and it was really fun!  I showed projects and tips and new products and everyone had a great time!  Starting on September 1st, I'll be hosting another one for the holiday catalog!  There may even be a few giveaways!  I hope to see you there!  You can find the party HERE.  And make sure to let me know if you need a copy of the catalog as well!

I have a very simple and quick project for you today using my absolute number one go to sketch and I know you've seen it before but you can NOT go wrong with this one.  It helps me to keep my projects super simple when I get new stuff because I get overwhelmed with too many new choices!  If I get washi tape you can pretty much bet I'm going to make a version of this card!  

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Stitched with cheer
Paper:  Crumb cake
Ink:  Crumb cake
Accessories:  Baker's twine trio, warmth and cheer washi tape

I really, really love the stitched with cheer stamp set and it's sentiments!  It's actually made to coordinate with the stitched project kit but it's perfect on it's own as well!  That gold twine in the trio set is so pretty too!  It's not too metallic but has a nice shine.  One thing I wished maybe I had done here was to use some white ink around the main panel but it's still good like this.

Don't forget to join my party and kick off the new catalog and the holidays!

Happy stamping!
