COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

Hey all! Miss me?? Fresh of a 2-week family vacation to Hawaii! Then home to a blizzard! Ugh! Trying hard to get back on track! Just wanna be back on the beach tho! lol But anyway, I'm baaacckkkk!!!!

This week's card was stressful for me! lol You'll find out why below!
So hello again to hoppers from Helen's blog! I missed you!  When you head on to Lizzy's blog tell her I said hi!!!

Ok, so this week's challenge! We were to CASE (basically copy! lol) a card from the person behind us in this hop! Well clearly that's Helen! But I consider Helen one of my favorite card makers! I have always loved her designs! She is clean & simple for the most part, but really creative! She knows how to really feature a stamp set!

Here's what I came up with (be gentle!):


So I went with one of her ore simple designs, because I felt I could do it justice! lol  This is a "copy" of her card from Wednesday, March 1. Check out her blog to see it!

I didn't have the Avant Garden stamp set, so I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set. It's similar. It's a nice 1-layer card.  

Now Helen used some Silver Card Stock to matte the main art image.  I didn't have any Silver handy, so I used Smoky Slate.  I also added a piece of Succulent Garden Sweet Sugarplum 1/8" Ribbon for a "pop"  Hers didn't need it. But I think mine did. I did finish it off with a bit of Wink of Stella, but I have a hard time getting it to show in a photo! Trust me-it's there! lol

Either way, it's a pretty birthday card. Thanx Helen for the idea, and the beautiful work you do!!!

Happy Stampin'!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

This week on 
Coloring Down the Lines 
we are featuring our favorite techniques!

If you are hopping with us, you probably arrived from Helen's blog!! Be sure to continue on to Lizzy's blog, then keep going! Join our hop all the way around!!!

So here's my card:


Here's Robbie's inspiration photo:


So I went through all the wonderful techniques I've learned in my many, many years of stamping. Which was my favorite? That's a tough one, but I really ended up going with my "go-to", which to me would indicate a favorite! Watercoloring! Not a fancy schmancy technique-just a plain & simple yet fun & effective technique!

I chose one of our beautiful new stamp sets to feature the watercoloring technique. It's the Beautiful You stamp set.   When I first saw it I was like meh! But now it's one of my faves!!! So pretty!

Here's another example of watercoloring with this stamp set. 


I saw a similar card somewhere so I decided to put my own take on it! Just a different experiment with the Watercolor Pencils & the Blender Pens on the Watercolor Paper. Fun.  

Materials used in these 2 cards include: Beautiful You stamp set,   Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens, Pop of Pink DSP, Falling Petals Textured Embossing Folder, Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (from 
Sale-a-bration Catalog), embellishments from My Paper Pumpkin, 
Pearls Perfect Jewels, Pop of Pink Washi Tape

Enjoy!!!

Happy Stampin'!!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES BLOG HOP

Hello there!!! Welcome to February!!! Lots of fun here on our 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop 
this month!!!  We start off with Projects! 

So before me in the hop is Helen!!! Following me is Lizzy!!! Make sure to keep hopping & visit our other hop-mates! Such cool ideas here!!!

Here's my project:


And Robbie's direction sheet:


So this was a tough one for me. I'm really a card girl! I'm not so much into the cutesie little bags & boxes & such. I mean they're awesome & fun to get & look at. But I'm just not one to send or give them! So I had to dig into my stash of ideas for this week!!

This is a treat that was around a few years ago. I forget what its called, but I call it the Flippin' Tag Card!!! lol  I figured I'd whip it up as a Valentine's treat for my club girls to make this week! It's a fun project without being too elaborate! Ya just pull up that tag & viola! A special tag treat awaits!



This one uses a lot of my Valentines Day goodies! The stamp set used is 
Sealed with Love. There's some Silver Glimmer Paper in there too. Other supplies used are the Sweetheart Punch, Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack, Happy Heart TEIF, and Silver Embossing Powder.  

Hope this inspired you! If you'd like to learn how to make one of these cards, let me know! I'd love to do a class for a few of your friends!!! Plus, it's still Sale-a-Bration time so you could earn some amazing free stuff!!!!!

Happy Stampin'

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT-SENDING LOVE DSP

This week in our Product Spotlight group we are once again featuring the Sending Love Designer Series Paper (DSP)!  This is a gorgeous 6x6 paper stack with only Real Red & Whisper White! Perfect for Valentine's Day, but any other "red" occasion will work too!!!

This week on our hop please go forward Robbie's blog or backward to 
Helen's blog! Lots of great stuff here!

Here's my card:


So I wasn't gonna do another Valentine's Day card, rather feature the DSP in another way. But I needed some Valentine's cards so I went with it! lol It actually could just be used for a "lovey dovey" kind of moment too! 

The stamp set is Vertical Greetings. This is one of my favorites from the Annual Catalog. I have used this stamp for wedding & anniversary cards, but never before for a Valentine's card! This was a big "outside the box" moment for me! lol

The Red Glitter Embossing Powder worked well with this! So pretty! Adds just the right amount of bling!  Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack rounds out the card!!! I will admit, I removed the heart that says Happy Valentine's Day & put it on the inside after I photographed the card! I liked it better that way!

Hope you enjoyed & are inspired to grab this DSP! Remember, it's 
Sale-a-Bration time!!!

Happy Stampin'!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES-NO HEART!

Hey all! So our challenge this week on the 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop 
I thought was going to put me over the edge! lol It turned out to be one of my faves!!!

First, I'm glad you're here! Helen's amazing blog is before mine in the hop, and Sandy's loveliness follows mine! Please be sure to hop all the way through & check them out! Comments always welcome!

So this week's challenge was to create a Valentine's Day card without using hearts! Wait-What? Well this really forced me to check out my stamp sets to see what I could do!!! I love that! I actually found several that would work perfectly for Valentine's Day that I never considered!!!  I love how this came out!

Here's the card:


And Robbie's instructions:

So this was kind of fun! I first have to say I'm thrilled that Stampin' Up! continued the Red Glitter Embossing Powder from the Holiday Catalog! I've used it more for Valentine's Day than for Christmas! lol  It is currently an addiction!

For this card, I used the Balloon Celebrations stamp set! With all the holidays, I haven't visited my regulars for a bit! Nice to see them again!  The words & lips are from the Sealed with Love stamp set! This is in our current 
Occasions Catalog! Such an awesome set!  I backed the balloons with the beautiful Sending Love DSP, and embellished with the 
Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack.  It's actually a very simple card, but I love how it came out! Valentines with no heart! lol Doesn't sound right does it?!

So I'm so anxious to see what my hop-mates come up with!!! Tomorrow more Sending Love DSP in our Product Spotlight!!!  Hope you enjoy!

Happy Stampin'!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

Here we are beginning our Valentine's Day Celebrations at 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!!!!  
Didn't we just finish Christmas?? LOL

Welcome hoppers from Helen's blog!!!! Keep hopping to Lizzy's place when you are finished here-then keep going!!!! Enjoy!!!

This week our Valentine Card can NOT have red or pink!!! Hmmm??? Tough one? You'll see some beauties here!!!

Here's my card:


And our inspiration:


So I started with my Affectionately Yours DSP. This is one of my all-time paper packs! I just think these colors are beautiful!!!!  Then I pulled out the Blossoms Punch & started punching away!!!! I just thought a flower heart was unique. Haven't seen one out there!  

The sentiment is from the January My Paper Pumpkin kit! Just got it! And it's punch out with the Sweetheart Punch!  Added some of the 
Sending Love Embellishments & Night of Navy Baker's Twine & voila! Valentine with no red or pink!! Well, the Watermelon Wonder is sorta pinkish, but it's definitely not the focus of the card, so I'm ok with that! Plus, it's not really pink! lol

Happy Stampin'!!!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

We are in our last real week ( I hope! lol) of winter loving' here at the 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!  
I'm so over winter already, & it really just started!!! This week we are once again looking at shades of blue with a snow theme, but the kicker is we need to use an embossing folder that is not Softly Falling! That's a tough one because that's a perfect folder for snow! lol 

Hello hoppers from Helen's blog! Make sure you keep hopping on to  
Lizzy's blog to get some great snowy ideas!!! And keep going! Perfect for the snow days that are bound to keep us stampin' in the near future! Ugh! 

Here's my snowy card this week:


So the folder I chose to use is the Woodlands Embossing Folder!  It always reminds me of a walk through the woods-whatever the weather! But right now my woods look very white having just had an 8" snowfall. Nothing for us New Englanders, but it's still pretty white!

Now I don't like how the bottom of this photographed. I tried so many photos to get the sparkle to show up! The Dazzling Diamonds Glitter doesn't really pop as nicely in the picture. But in real life it truly looks like glittering snow!

The stamp sets used are the snowflakes from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set and the sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set.  Sentiment was cut out using 
Lots of Labels Framelits!

The beautiful ribbon is from the new Occasions Catalog. It's from the 
3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo 2-pack! The other one has pretty gold in it! Great ribbon!!

So I hope you felt snowy today! I'm so not a fan of snow & very much looking forward to spring!! But this snowy card warmed my heart!  Hope it did yours too!

Happy Stampin'!

SEALED WITH LOVE! PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT!

Welcome to the Thursday Project Spotlight!!! This week we are featuring the Sealed With Love 
product suite from the brand NEW OCCASIONS CATALOG that went live just yesterday!!!! So excited!!!

We are a little blog hop here, so we have a few ideas for you! This week it's just the three of us-myself, Robbie and Amanda!!! Be sure to check out their blogs too for some fun ideas for this AMAZING group of products!

Here's my card this week:


So I really wanted to feature the items in a non-Valentine's way! I wasn't feeling Valentines when I made this as I still had my Christmas decorations up! lol It's also cool to show that these items do not need to be used for a holiday-specific project!!!

This is just a simple "love note"!!!  Using the Sealed with Love stamp set and the coordinating Love Notes Framelits really makes this whole suite easy! Here I paired it all with the Affectionately Yours DSP instead of the red/white coordinating one, and used the Mint Macaron background instead of red or pink. I don't think this is very Valentines-y do you?

Look at that cool edge on the Love Notes Framelits! So awesome!!! And that little envelope is so fun!!! There are actually 2 sizes in the framelits for envelopes. So much fun! The little embellishments from the 
Mini Paper Clip Combo Pack are great too!!

The amazing OCCASIONS CATALOG is NOW LIVE!!!! Check it out!!!! 

And don't forget about SALE-A-BRATION!!!! It's that AMAZING SALE of the year!!! EVERYTHING in the SALE-A-BRATION CATALOG is FREE!!!!!
Oh ya! You heard me right!!!!  FREE!!!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!!

ICS BLOG HOP-HEY CHICK!


I am so excited my stampin' pals today we kick off the annual Sale-A-Brations promotion AND to inspire you our blog hop theme this month is 
Let's Sale-A-Brate! 
How fun and how lucky are we to kick off the annual promo with a hop! 
Have you seen the Sale-A-Brations catalog yet...oh my so many choices! You can view it HERE!!!!! It went live today!!! You may have already received yours. If you don't have a demonstrator and need a copy feel free to make arrangements to come get a copy!

Here's my project this month:


I have had so much fun with these little guys!!! The stamp set is called Hey, Chick!!! I still can't believe you can get it for FREE!!!!!

Instead of a single card, I made these 4 little 3x3 "love" notes. I think they make a really cute little gift set. I've done this before. Created several similar 3x3's then wrapped a pretty ribbon around them & gave as a gift! These are the cutest ever though!!!!! lol  

I also wanted to try out the new Watercolor Pencils!!! They work great with the 
Blender Pens or Aqua Painters! Just enough color!!!

Here's what each one looks like:





I surely don't have a favorite!!! These chicks (and egg-although it doesn't matter which is first!) are equally adorbs!!!!

Materials used were Hey, Chick stamp set, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Cupcake & Carousels DSP Pack, Very Vanilla Baker's Twine, Wink of Stella.

Since both the new Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration Catalog are NOW LIVE, keep hopping to get some great ideas!!! And remember, Sale-a-Bration stuff is exclusive and FREE!!!!!!

Next up is Candy.  Then just keep going! You will be so inspired!!!!! You can get to her by either clicking her name or the icon below!!!! Comments always welcome! Thanks for joining us!

Happy Stampin'!



COLORING DOWN THE LINES!!

Happy New Year! And welcome to our first 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop 
of 2017!! I can't believe Christmas is over & it's already January 4!!! Yikes!!!

This week we are using blues with snow and a pop of bling!!! You may have noticed that if you came here from Helen's blog! You'll see more great stuffs if you continue on to Lizzy's blog & beyond!!!!

Here's my card:


Here's the inspiration photo:


So trying to do this card without making it a Christmas card was a bit challenging! Especially after making Christmas cards almost exclusively during December! lol But I thought this worked as a nice thank you card for the Christmas or Hanukkah gifts! Appropriate, right?

I decided to revisit an old technique that I loved back in the day. It's called the Brick Wall Technique! I changed it a bit here from the old way though.

So here's the story! I used my Brick Folder Embossing Folder and created "lines" like a brick wall on my embossed and sponged cardstock.  Then I cut along those lines and placed them like a brick wall! Easy peasy, but I think it looks cool!!!

My bling here is the white Heat embossing of the beautiful snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes!!! If you look very closely, you can see the little 
Metallic Embellishment stars in the center of the big snowflakes. Usually the camera picks up the shine, but I couldn't get it to happen this time. When you see it in person though, there is a nice shimmer there! 

Materials used besides the stamp set, and those listed are the 
Dapper Denim Rouched Ribbon, Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment, Snowflake Builder Punch, VersaMark & Dapper Denim Ink Pads!

Hope you enjoyed and that the only snow you see is that here on our hop! I'm not a winter girl!!! lol

HappyStampin'!!!!

CHEERFUL TAGS PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT!

So our Thursday Focus/Product Spotlight group is once more featuring the 
Cheerful Tags Thinlets!!! I love these things!

Welcome my Canadian friends (and non-Canadian friends too!)from Jenilee's amazing blog!!!! When you're finished here you will hop on to Helen's very creative blog!!!! Enjoy all the way around!

Here's my project this week:



Now I know I could go outside of the box like my hop mates, but I just so love these little tags!!! And this one was designed with New Year's Eve in mind! You know it's going around the neck of a nice champagne bottle!!! lol

It's very simple to make these!  Just cut them out with the Big Shot! The 
Cheerful Tags Thinlets do all the work!!! I also so love that there's the Here's to Cheers coordinating stamp set!!! Stampin' Up! does that quite well-coordinating products! Makes life so much easier!



I used my Copper Embossing Powder and Copper Foil Paper for the "bling" here! If you look carefully, there's also some Copper Metallic Thread just for fun! This fun little tag is finished off with the Natural Trim! This is literally a 10-minute tag, and what an impact it makes!!!

To all my friends on this blog hop, I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!!!!! See you next year with some more fun new featured products to help your creative juices flow!!!!

Happy Stampin'!!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

Well here we are-our last 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop 
of the year!!! Also our last week of Silver and Gold!!! I'm loving my card this week!!!

Hello hoppers from Helen's blog!  Happy New Years to you all! And also to those in Lizzie's blog, where you will go after this one!!! Yikes! 2017!!

Here's this week's bling:


Here's the inspiration photo:


So I had fun with this card & really LOVE how it came out!!! It's one of those cards ya make but never wanna send! lol  I know some of you get that! lol

I used my Gold Glimmer Paper, Gold Metallic Paper and 
Metallic Foil Doilies to create "champagne bubbles"! Pulled out all the gold for this one!! Cool right?  The stamp set is one of my all-time favorites, 
Mixed Drinks!!!!  Even the ribbon has gold-its the Natural Trim!!! 

I just simply used lots of Circle Punches for this one!! Bubbles bubbles bubbles!!   And paper-saver note: if you were to lift up the top layer, you would see holes in the Glimmer Paper!! Paper conservation-my motto!!! lol

The background is accentuated with the 
Large Polka Dots Embossing Folder-keeping it round! And lastly, the "champagne" is simply Gold Wink of Stella!!! Such a fun card to make!!!!

As this is the last day in this hop for 2016, I just want to wish everyone a blessed, happy & healthy 2017!! May it be filled with fun, family, good health and lots of stamping!!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!!!

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT-CHEERFUL TAGS FRAMELITS

Hello all!!! I am participating in a new fun blog hop designed to spotlight one or more of our amazing products!!! This is my first week with this hop!!! So glad to be joining my friends to bring you some great ideas to use with some of our fun goodies!!!

Welcome my visitors from Canada & Jenilee's blog!!! We met several years ago at convention & she remains one of my Stampin' Up! besties!!!!

After you're finished here, you will hop on to Robbie's blog! You may remember her from our weekly Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop. She is one of the creators of this hop-and that hop!!! Cool beans!

This week we are featuring The Cheerful Tags Thinlets!  This is such a fun little set & fortunately it's carried over into the Occasions Catalog! Works for every occasion!!! 


I paired the Thinlets here with the coordinating stamp set-Here's to Cheers! I think it works great for a nice bottle of wine as a gift, but the tags also work for a bottle of water for a stamp club or bottle of soda or juice just because!!!

This one is very Christmas-y as I'm sure I'll use it on a gift this coming weekend! The sentiment was embossed using the awesome 
Emerald Envy Glitter Embossing Powder!!!  Luv that!!! The ribbon is the beautiful Emerald Envy Rouched Ribbon

These little tags are very simple to make but create such a nice presentation!!! I posted one last Wednesday for the ICS Blog Hop! You will see another next Thursday when we feature this product once again!!!

A very Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah to you all!!!!!

Merry Stampin'!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

It's our last 
Coloring Down the Lines 
blog hop before the "big day"!!!!  Boy I need to finish my shopping! lol  We are continuing with our Silver and Gold theme this month!!! Perfect for the Holiday feel!!!

Hello hoppers from Helen's blog!!!! Merry Christmas to you all!!!! And as you travel on to Lizzy's blog, I hope you all have a spectacular holiday!!!!!

Here's my "bling" this week:


Here's the inspiration photo:


So this is just a simple snowflake card! lol  It's hard to tell in the picture, but the snowflakes are heat embossed with Silver embossing powder & super shiny! And guess what I discovered? If you stamp lightly with the  Smoky Slate ink, it looks more silver than gray!!!  

The beautiful snowflakes are from Flurry of Wishes stamp set! Such a pretty set. The largest of the flakes is punched out with the coordinating 
Flower Medallion Punch, and the 2 smaller ones punched out with the 
Snow Flurry Punch.  I so love how Stampin' Up! makes everything coordinating!!! Makes my life so much easier! lol

The only real embellishment on this card is some beautiful 
Silver 1/8" Ribbon.  The little red dots are simple little circles punched from Cherry Cobbler card stock.  It needed some color. I will admit that after  I photographed it, I went back and added a couple of silver Metallic Sequins for excitement. Not necessary, but I just wanted to! lol

I am having so much fun creating with my new goodies from the brand new Occasions Catalog & Sale-a-Bration Catalog that go live January 4!!! I can't wait to share with you!!!! But not yet! Still in holiday mode  & enjoying my goodies from the Holiday Catalog. They'll be gone soon! :(

So hope you likey! And seeing as this is the last blog hop before the holiday, I would love to wish you all a safe, happy and very Merry Christmas, and to my friends of the Jewish faith, a wonderful Season of Lights/Happy Hanukkah!  May your holidays be filled with family, fun, friends, love and magic!!!!

Merry Stampin'!!!
