A WARM CUP OF TEA

Hi and welcome!  I’m starting the week off with a warm cup of tea that uses the Tea Together Cling stamp set and the matching Tea Time Framelits dies.

You will find the Tea Together cling stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and the Tea Time Framelits dies are a FREE choice in the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

The background was created by using the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Vellum.  It’s soooo pretty.

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge to show off that lovely tea cup and beautiful rose.

The tea cup and flowers were first heat embossed with Gold Emboss powder and then the rose was coloured with the Calypso Coral and Old Olive Watercolour pencils.

TIP:  I wanted the embossed vellum piece to stay firmly on the card front so used a Stampin’ Sponge and our Liquid Multipurpose glue.  Just squeeze some of the glue onto the Silicone Craft Sheet and use the piece of sponge to lightly spread the glue onto the back of the vellum.  This way, the glue won’t show and the vellum piece will be firmly attached!

Here’s the full list or products that I used.

Have a great Monday and see you again tomorrow!

HELLO FROM FABLE FRIENDS

Hello from the new Fable Friends Cling stamp set.  This set is full of really cute critters and I picked the little squirrel image to bring greetings to you today!

There’s nothing like bright spring colours to brighten the mood is there?  This little squirrel and his sweet daisy was just too cute to resist and he played in well with the layout from Freshly Made Sketches!

This Fable Friends stamp set is just one of the new Cling stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! has introduced.  They are great – they cling nicely to the clear blocks (no falling off at the crucial moment).  I know that you’re going to love using them.  Enjoy this video below which shows you just how they work.

Here’s the product list for today’s card for you.  You can click on any picture to go directly to my Online Store.

HUMMINGBIRD BIRTHDAY

It’s a hummingbird kind of day here today.  Not literally as we have a couple of feet of snow but the hummingbirds rest in our hearts and minds!

Whenever new products arrive from Stampin’ Up!, I go to the catalogue for inspiration and that’s what I did with this card.  You will find the original on page 36 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

It was a sunny day when I made this card so it was a pleasure to colour this little beauty and imagine seeing the humming birds arrive this summer!

I used quite a few supplies to create this card, so here is the list for you.

WELL, HELLO BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLIES

Happy New year to you!  I thought that I’d start off the new year with a “kaleidoscope” of beautiful butterflies.  After all, don’t we all count the days to spring starting today?

I followed along with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge as I felt that it was the perfect opportunity to show off this beautiful stamp set bundle from the 2019 Occasions catalogue.  Also, there’s some new framelits that will cut out perfect rectangle shapes for you every time!  The Rectangle Stitched framelits!

Here’s the layout that I followed – I used those rectangle framelits to cut out the vellum pieces.

Everything will be available for you to shop on Thursday, January 3, 2019!

CHEERS TO THE NEW YEAR

Hi there!  I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and are ready to say Cheers to a brand new year!  I’m thinking 2019 will be a good one!

I used the Half Full stamp set because there just “needed” to be a glass of champagne on this card to compliment that great greeting from the Warm Hearted stamp set(2018 Holiday Catalogue host set).

Freshly Made Sketches posted this great layout which was the perfect inspiration for this cheery card.

I pulled the Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker out to give that glass of champagne a little colour and the sequins add a few bubbles here and there!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

HAVE A GOLDEN CHRISTMAS

I’m wishing you all a golden Christmas and here’s the card to send those greetings!

This is one last Christmas card for 2018 which allowed me to play along with the What Will You Stamp challenge as well as the SUO Challenge.

Peaceful Poinsettia is the stamp set of choice for WWYS and we can choose our own design for the SUO Challenge so I kept it simple with a little textured embossing and some heat embossing with our Gold Emboss Powder.

Here’s the list of products used.

A SNEAK PEEK FROM THE 2019 STAMPIN” UP! OCCASIONS CATALOGUE

The 2019 Stampin’ Up! and Sale-A-Bration period starts on January 3, 2019!  I couldn’t wait to show you this sneak peed of just one of the beautiful stamp sets that will be available to you on January 3, 2019!

Check out that NEW Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper!  I stamped the images with Versamark and then heat embossed using the Gold Emboss Powder.  The pretty rose was coloured using Stampin’ Blends and the tea cup and rose were cut out with the Tea Time Framelits Dies which are a FREE choice from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  LOve, love, love!

The stamp set used is called Tea Together which highlights a new element in stamping – Cling Stamps!  These stamps are available in the Occasions catalogue and are absolutely great because they cling to the Clear Blocks so tightly – no more “drops offs” while stamping!

The Year-End Closeout is still going on.  Have you checked it out?  There may be some items that you really want so make sure to visit my Online Store and some items are going very quickly and may no longer be available!

Take care and Happy Stamping to you!

ONE RED ROSE

Hello there!  The days are counting down to Christmas but I decided to feature this one red rose that’s destined for someone over this holidays.

I love the drama of the black and silver backgrounds – they highlight that rose perfectly!  It’s a simple layout compliments CAS(E) this sketch!  Check it out.

The silver glimmer lattice was sitting on my crafting table from a previous project, so I used it as a lovely angled background.  Love it!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

AT PEACE BY THE RIVER

Happy Friday and welcome!  Today’s card features the beautiful Peaceful Place stamp set that’s available in Clear-mount and Wood-mount.  One of the stamps features a lovely, peaceful scene so I went all-in and did a little colouring.

It didn’t take much to add colour using our Stampin’ Blends markers and a touch or two of the Colour Lifter gave it just the right amount of shading.

I choose to use Old Olive as the card base and frame to play along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches.

I have another stamp set in mind for this layout as well and will be posting it next week!

In the meantime, here’s the list of products for you.
