ALL DAYS ARE BEAUTIFUL THAT BEGIN WITH YOU

“All days are beautiful that begin with you”!  This is the sentinment that I put on today’s card!

This simple message is to celebrate all of the women in our lives that support, protect and love us!  The whole idea for this card came from a combination of three challenges that I’m playing along with.  I don’t usually combine several challenges, but I wanted to keep things clean and simple and these three helped to make that happen.

The Paper Players Colour Challenge,

The SUO Challenge to celebrate women and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

I only took two stamp sets, lol, Floral Essence stamp set provided the sentiment and Butterfly Gala stamp set and matching punch provided that tiny butterfly!

Here’s the list of products used.

Make sure to thank and celebrate the fantastic women in your life and happy stamping to you!

THE OLD BLUE TRUCK

The old blue truck may seem like a strange thing to show on Mother’s Day, but I am remembering the blue truck that my husband and I had when we first got married!

I figure that since it is Mother’s Day, I can post anything I want, right?  This old truck took us many miles and our daughters shared the space with us when they were very little!

This card was the idea that bloomed when I saw the new Freshly Made Sketches layout.

My thought was, YAY, I can use the Garage Gears dies(148521) that pairs really well with the Pedal to the Metal stamp set(151591)!

Here’s the product list for you.  Don’t forget that some of these items are going away by June2, 2020, so get them before they’re gone!

Have a very good Mother’s Day, I hope your family spoils the heck our of you!

LOVE FOREVER WITH BLOSSOMS

Happy Monday to you and the start of a brand new week.  There’s no better way to start a week than with some blossoms that say love forever!

I love this Forever Blossoms stamp set bundle, it’s a beautiful set and so easy to colour!  I really wanted to make them pop and what better way than to add some black!

I was looking for some layout ideas and decided to play along with the FabFriday sketch challenge.

Take care, have a great week and happy stamping to you!

IS IT TOO SOON TO THINK ABOUT MOTHER’S DAY

Is it too soon for Mother’s Day projects?  Probably not, so I went ahead and created a Mother’s Day card with the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle(151087)!

The package of Magnolia Lane DSP(149484) was sitting on my table, so what the heck, let’s do the whole magnolia thing!  I chose to watercolour this beauty and love the way it turned out.  The ribbon was a last minute idea and then I realized that it is unavailable right now.  But hopefully, when things settle down, it will be back!

Here’s the list of products used.  Note that I used the greeting from the Timeless Tulips set with it’s lovely neat and tidy font.

Wishing you a very good weekend and Happy Stamping!

FOR MOM

It’s Good Friday today and the start of a long weekend for some.  I thought that I’d show this simple and bright card that I made to celebrate Mother’s Day.  Yes, it’s early but why not?

I went with Special Celebrations and Itty Bitty Greeting for this to combine two very special sayings for Mom.

The layout from Freshly Made Sketches was perfect for this greeting too!

The Flourish Dies are sticking around and since I haven’t used them a lot lately, I decided that this particular piece would be perfect for this card.  The Big Shot is retiring with the start of the new 2019- 2020 Annual Catalogue and I’m a little bummed by that.  But… Stampin’ Up! will be working directly with a manufacturer and will be adding a replacement machine in the future.

Here’s the list of products and if you haven’t invested in the Big Shot Die-Cutting machine yet, now might be a great time to do that.

Have a great Easter weekend and try to get a little stamping in.  It’s good for the soul!

TEA AND FLOWERS

With the weather taking a turn to the cold, how about a little tea and flowers to warm up?!

This simple card is a good choice for a Mother’s day greeting (yes another one).  I used a combination of the Petal Pink combo and Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends for the flowers.  As well as the Granny Apple green combo for the leaves.  I think they all look great with the Grapefruit Grove card base!

CAS(E) this sketch posted a challenging layout for this week and this card is my take on it.

I’ve been playing along with this sketch challenge for a while now and was delighted to have been chosen as an Honorable mention for last week’s card.  See it HERE.

Here’s the list of products that I used to create this tea and flowers card.

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE HUMMING ALONG CLING BUNDLE

Hi and welcome.  I thought that the Humming Along Cling Bundle needed a day out so welcome little hummingbird!

Matching it up with a piece of designer paper from the Painted Seasons package gave me the colour inspiration so I pulled out a few of our Stampin’ Blends and coloured merrily away!  Mother’s day is a while away but it never hurts to get a small head-start on those special cards.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Have a fabulous Monday and Happy Stamping to you!

MANY LOVELY ROSES WISHING FOR SPRING

Me and these many lovely roses are very fervently wishing for spring!  One of the best things about having a stamping business is that you can create your own season any time you want!  All it takes is some cardstock, ink and a great stamp set like the Climbing Roses Cling Bundle.

I used the Petal Pink and Shaded Spruce combo Stampin’ Blends to colour those little beauties and cut them out with the matching thinlit die.  Don’t they look so pretty sitting on that trellis and label?  I used a combination of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots to arrange them.

This would make a great Valentine’s card but my thoughts when making it were for an anniversary or wedding!  It’s perfect for either one!

Here’s the list of products used.

THIS DRAGONFLY DUO SAYS THANKS

Hello to you – today’s card uses Dragonfly Dreams and matching Thinlits Dies.  This is a stamp set that I haven’t used in quite a while so it was long past time to bring it out!

I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the dragonfly wings by rubbing Versamark over them and then using the Heat Tool to help set the glitter.

This card layout come from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge

which also gave the opportunity to show off a couple more of the beautiful designs in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series paper.  Check out my Website for all of the selections available to you now for the Share What You Love Suite.

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE A PRETTY CALENDAR

A while back I held a class to make calendar pages for this year and today’s post shows four of the pages that were created.

Sometimes it’s hard to decide what each month’s theme will be but these four months were easy!

We have a Mother’s Day theme for May, Father’s Day for June, Canada Day for July and the perfect summer scene for August!

I used Graceful Garden(143849, 143846), Truly Tailored(145735, 145732), the Colorful Seasons Bundle(145348), You’re Inspiring(145808, 145805) and Waterfront(146386) stamp sets for these pages and am so happy with the way that they all turned out.

If you are looking to add some (or all) of these sets to your collection, visit my Website to shop.  The Waterfront and Truly Tailored sets are from the Occasions Catalogue and are available until May 31, 2018.

Happy Stamping!
