The Beautiful Peacock stamp set is just that – Beautiful!  So I had lots of fun creating this card with it.

As you can see, there are quite a few things going on here.  I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock an Aqua Painter and the new Brusho® Crystal Colour.  I simply applied a wash of water on the paper and then sprinkled the Yellow crystals over it and let them dry.

In the meantime I stamped the peacock body onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out.  The fan and white flourish were heat embossed with white onto a piece of Vellum and, yes, cut out.  All of the pieces were then put together using Mini Glue Dots and then attached to the main panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added two 3/8″ strips of the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper to the edges using our tough and really sticky Tear & Tape Adhesive and attached the entire piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here’s the full list of products that I used so you can give this a try yourself.  If you need any of the products, just click on the picture and it will take you directly to my Online Store.

Our eldest grandson is turning 14 this month (where-oh-where does the time go?) and he likes music so…….I played around with the Sale-A-Bration set, Epic Celebrations.

This set has a set of headphones image as well so is perfect for the music lover.  Since it does have a music theme, I used the Sheet Music background stamp for just a hint of a musical background.  The stamp was inked up with Smokey Slate and then “stamped off” onto a scrap of paper before it was added to the card front piece.  I l love the way it turned out.

To give those cool runners a bit of a kick, I added touches of black with the sharp end of our Stampin’ Write Markers.

Three of the colours(Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim) that I used are part of The Paper Players challenge this week.

Here’s the list of ingredients for you.

Hi and welcome to this tropical post!  I played around with the Waterfront stamp set and gave it a bit of a tropical feeling.  I’m sure most of us would like a little tropical weather right now!

This is a great stamp set and can be found on page 48 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It was easy to add that piece of designer paper from the Delightful Daisy package for the background so it would highlight that soft tropical beach.

You could make this pretty stamp set a part of your collection just by Hosting your own stamping party.  You can also earn Free selections from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue with qualifying sales at your party.  Want more info?  Contact me so we can talk.

Happy Monday and welcome as I start the week off with a little Birthday Wit!

The Birthday Wit stamp set(Page 9 Occasions Catalogue)has some really funny greetings and I love the one I used on today’s card.  Yup, sometimes I forget a birthday and this greeting is perfect to let that person know that I am thinking of them!

I wanted to make this one for the guys and followed along with Freshly Made Sketches for this simple layout.

Of course, I couldn’t forget to use the Celebrate You Thinlits dies that are just one of the great Free selections from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Catalogue!

You can find them on pages 16 & 17 along with some amazing samples to give you more inspiration.

Note that I used three colours for the “celebrate”!  The entire word was cut out with Powder Pink, Calypso Coral and Gold Foil.  Then I cut the Gold Foil and Calypso Coral into pieces and glued each piece over the main part using our fabulous Liquid Multipurpose Glue.

Do you have a special calendar that sits on your desk or crafting table?  Do you fill it with great ideas to fill your schedule?

If not, I invite you to create one with me over the next 3 months starting on Tuesday, January 9, 2018.

This Beautiful Peacock is, quite simply beautiful!  It’s a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set that lets you create some great projects like this card.

It’s a 2-Step stamping set so you can add extras to that peacock image!  I added the “tail” image in Lemon Lime Twist and topped it off with some Garden Green for a little extra pop.  After inking up the image, I stamped it off so it would add just a touch of the darker green.  The same was done with the sprays of leaves.

All you need to do to get this set is spend $60 starting on January 2, 2018!

Here’s the list of products for you.

New Year’s Eve is right around the corner – are you going out to celebrate?  If you are you might like to take a card like this to your host.

It’s pretty simple and was created using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Amazing You and matching Celebrate You Thinlits(also a Free Sale-A-Bration item).  The Iridescent Sequins are meant to show bubbles or maybe some confetti:)

I followed along with the simple sketch layout from Freshly Made Sketches for this which made the choice of stamp set much easier.

Here’s a list of everything I used so you can add some of these to your New Year shopping list.
