Fab Friday 175

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's time for a new challenge at Fab Friday!  Check it out!

And here's my card!

I stamped my background on Shimmery White in Crumb Cake and then spritzed it lightly.  After it was dry I used my marker to flick a little ink as well.    For my candles, I used the Shimmery Crystal Effects and it's really pretty in real life.  You can see it a little better here.

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

You can find all the supplies on my FB group!

Happy stamping!

Fancy Friday - Annual Holiday Mixer

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday (or maybe Thursday night depending on when you're reading this)!  It's time to hop with the Fancy Friday team and I actually got my act together this month to do it!  If you're new to the hop, we are a group of current and past Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team Members who like to share our fancy creations with you!

I love this month's theme, Annual Holiday Mixer!  How fun!!!!  The challenge was to combine items from the Holiday Catalog with Items from the Annual Catalog to make a holiday project!  We tend to forget about the Annual Catalog sometimes since the Holiday Catalog is so fabulous but they really go great together!

For my project, I combined the Dashing Deer Stamp Set and Detailed Deer Thinlit Dies with the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper!  I think they look like they were made to go together!

To get a little fancy, I decided to use both the positive and negative portions of my die cuts.  I think we often forget about the negative space but it makes for cute cards!  I also added as much gold as I possibly could because what's fancier than gold and lots of it???  I also couldn't pass up making my deer into Rudolph with some rhinestones!

For this card, I used the Ornate Frames Dies which are actually in a Halloween suite, to make my tag.  Use those dies all winter long!

This card uses the very thin frame left over from the main panel from my first card.  It framed my deer perfectly!  Gold embossing ups the fancy factor again!

I really had fun being reminded to use holiday items from the Annual Catalog and I hope you will to!

Now it's time to go check out what my fancy friend, Teneale!  You're going to love what she made!

Happy stamping!

Boo....I'm Back

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  It is Tuesday, right?  Ha!  This last week has been crazy.  Ian got a tummy bug and then we went back to Illinois for my mom's birthday and our annual trek to The Great Pumpkin Patch.  We usually go back for about a week but we only stayed three days this time so we packed a lot of fun in a few days!  That makes for a tired mom when there's two 8-hour drives involved!  Then, when we got back, Ian had a field trip so it's just been busy, busy.  Plus, we have another trip coming up that we're trying to get ready for (as in mom is doing everything, haha).  Anyway, I hope to be able to work ahead to have stuff to share with you!  Things didn't go according to plan with Ian getting sick and then my parents got rid of their internet (who does that)!  So I am, I hope!

Here's todays card.  It's pretty simple!  I combined Wonderfully Wicked with some of the other Halloween stuff!  Bats and cats ;-)

I'm trying to share all the Halloween things but I gotta say, I'm ready (stamping wise at least) to go full on Christmas mode!  It's my favorite to stamp for.  But, I still have more Halloween goodies leading up to the actual day so stay tuned!

If you're looking for the supplies, you can now find those over on my FB page thanks to the new SU platform!

Fab Friday 174

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I'm not going to lie, I hate this card, lol!

I had a bad flare up of my occipital neuralgia yesterday so it is what it is.  At least I managed to stamp something!  It just didn't turn out quite as I pictured and I chose to go rest instead of a redo ;-)

Here's the challenge!

And here's what I made.

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

Halloween Hoot

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  I'm sharing another card today from my live video on World Card Making Day.  You can find that video and the supplies used for the card in my FB group!

It's not often that I think I have a really fantastic idea but I think this one is pretty nifty!  I thought this little owl in Check You Out and these books would work perfectly with the book pattern in the Monster Bash DSP!  See for yourself!

I also love these colors!  I wouldn't normally put them together for Halloween but they work!   And I love that they are unexpected!  I cut all my books and the owl out and popped them up on dimensionals.  I think those books on the DSP could be cute cut out for accents as well!  I probably just gave away my genius idea, hehe!

Take look at your stamps and find unconventional ways to incorporate sets into holiday cards!

Hi stampers!  Happy Hump Day!  I have a simple little card to share today using the Check You Out Stamp Set which is the one I used on World Card Making Day!  This one just uses stamps, ink, and paper again but you can set it apart just a bit with some fussy cutting!

My WCMD cards were kind of girly and I think this one is a little more masculine.  My dad recently had a small surgery so I think I'll send him this one!

You can find the supplies in my FB group.  Make sure to join if you haven't!

WCMD Part 1

Hi stampers!  Saturday was World Card Making Day!  I spent a good portion of the afternoon stamping away and I couldn't be happier!  Since having Ian, I have a hard time staying focused and stamping for long periods of time as well as coming up with ideas!  Even when he's in Daddy-Day-Care (aka sno-cones, bike riding, and video games hahahaha)!  You'll hear me yell at him to go hang out with dad in the video LOL!  The kid is with me ALLLLLLL day and only sees Jon in the evenings yet he still wants to bug me.  I mean, at the end of the day, I don't even want to hang out with ME! ;-)  Anyway, you can find the video here in my FB Group.

In the video, I just kind of thought you could hang out with me while I stamped and see a bit of my creative process!  I started out with a simple card using Stamps, Ink, and notecards and then I did a slightly stepped up version.  Props to Erica Cerwin because I cased the general idea and colors from her <3 p="">

The color is slightly off since it's so dark here in the mornings!  But how cute are these cards?  For the stepped up version, I just cut out the middle book and added a heart on dimensionals.  A couple of glitter dots finished it up, keeping it still pretty simple and mailable!

Stay tuned for something a little unexpected with this little guy (or gal).  You can sneak a peek of that if you join the group and watch the video!    That's also where you can find the supply list!

I  hope you got to stamp on WCMD and had a great one!

Happy stamping!

Sparkly Spider

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  Quick post today with a cute card I made with the Monster Bash Suite.

There are a couple of items I didn't use in the suite on my card but I do have!  Did you know you can get all of the items using only one item number if you want them all???  Pretty nifty!

My sentiment is from the September My Paper Pumpkin Kit and there are still some available as of this post in the online store!  I colored my jars with Blends and that DSP is fabulous because it's all worn looking and I didn't have to do a thing!

It's hard to see in the photograph but I used our Shimmery Crystal Effects on the spider and he's so cute!  If spiders can be cute!

And can you see where I goofed on this card???  I accidentally stamped on watercolor paper in Memento ink so my Blends bled a little bit on the paper but it worked I guess.  I MEANT to use staz-on and watercolor but I just went with it ;-)

Happy stamping!

Baroque and Boos!

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  It's like 60 out and FINALLY feels kind of like fall!!!  Woohoo!  I. Am. Here. For. It.  I'm also here for this cute and spooky Halloween card!

I used my Basic Patterns Decorative Masks to sponge a background on.  I love this one, it's like a baroque pattern.  It's so spooky and extra spooky, I think, if you omit parts of it!

My image is embossed in black and then I just did a little watercoloring!  You can find all the supplies linked in my FB group, make sure to join!  I'm switching over to a group over my page because FB doesn't like to show you posts from pages so you'll be sure to see all the things if you join the group, they are much more user friendly!  You can also set your notification settings the way you want them!

Happy stamping!

An Apple A Day

Hi stampers!  We're halfway to the weekend!  Will you be stamping over the weekend?  Saturday is World Card Making Day so I'm going to try to get in my stamp room!

Here's a fun fall card you could send to anyone!  I love the Harvest Hellos stamp set!  Ian had a little taste test of different varieties of apples last week and keeps talking about it.  That totally reminds me of this card, ha!  His favorite was the pink lady!

Our DPS stacks sure make cute apples!  I used the Brights Collection here with Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green (fitting, no?).

I used some post it notes and masked off the comma and the rest of this sentiment from the set and just used the Hey There.  Don't forget you can usually use your sentiment in any way you want!

I did some pattern mixing yesterday and today should we call this pattern coordinating?  Ha!  I paired the Buffalo Check Background Stamp with the gingham.  I wasn't sure it would work, but it totally does, or at least I think so.  What do you think?

In keeping with our new and improved website, the supply list can now be found on my FB group which you can get to HERE.  Make sure to click and join so you don't miss anything!

Wherever We Roam

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  I'm sharing a sweet card today that I made over the weekend decor the Stampin' Through the Catalog Challenge.  They are focusing on the Holiday Catalog at the moment and I've tried to play along!

I made this card specifically for my bestie who lives in Iowa.  We don't see each other very much but whenever we do, it's like no time or distance has passed!  <3 p="">

First off, I love these colors together!

  • Crushed Curry
  • Terracotta Tile
  • Rococoa Rose
  • Seaside Spray
  • Pretty Peacock

Second, while this set may be in the Holiday Catalog it is NOT just for Holidays.  I cut this sentiment apart and left the part about Christmas off.  The inside says, "Our hearts are next door" and I just love that!  I also love the font mixing in this set!

My houses are also stamped and then cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

Make sure to play along with #STTCchallenge if you have this set!  They will feature you on Instagram!  Tag them with that hashtag up there!

In keeping with the new platform from SU, my supplies are now linked on the images in my FB group.  Please ask to follow along by clicking right HERE!

Happy stamping!
