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'!!!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES

Here we are in another week of Silver & Gold 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!! 
Lots of Holiday bling here!!

Welcome from Helen's blog!!! Next hop on over to Lizzy's place!!! It'll be a "blingy" experience!!!

So here's my card this week:


And our inspiration photo:


More Christmas look this week! I LOVE this Pine Bough Embossing Folder & I'm so sad it's retiring! It makes for such an easy but beautiful card!!  And wow, on the Silver Foil Sheet?! Amazing!!!!!! 

The only stamping on this is the sentiment. It's from the Tin of Tags stamp set. I wanted a different shape just because. So I tried (and it worked!) the 
Paisley Framelits! I think I'll use this again! Love how it came out! 

Wanted just a pop of color from the Pine Boughs Framelits! Round it all off with some Rouched Ribbon and some Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine & it's a pretty simple yet elegant card!!!

This will also be my first day of my
"Annual 12 Cards of Christmas"!!!!
 One per day until the big day!!! So be sure to watch back & enjoy some fun cards filled with Christmas cheer!!!

Merry Stampin'!!!

ICS BLOG HOP-HERE'S TO CHEERS/CHEERFUL TAGS!


Yeah it's time for our monthly 
Inspire, Create and Share 
blog hop! This month our theme is "I am Dreaming of a White Christmas", and we're showcasing ideas using white on white! We hope you enjoy this beautiful hop and will become inspired to give the white on white look a try!

Here's my creation:



Close Up!!!
Laid out flat! So pretty!
So I decided not to go with a card this time!!! This is for a special gift for a special friend who is hosting a wonderful Christmas party next week! I thought it would be a perfect way to "pretty up" the bottle of wine I will be bringing as a Hostess gift!!!

This is an amazing bundle that I know I will be using long after it retires!!! It makes a simple little bottle of something look so special!!! Plus, they are sturdy enough so she can pass it on if she likes! I have no problem with re-gifting! 

I love the look of white on white, especially for the Christmas holidays! But I thought for a "pop" the silver would be appropriately festive!!!

Items used in this little tag are Here's to Cheers stamp set, Cheerful Tags Thinlets, 
1 3/4" Circle Punch, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Silver 1/8" Ribbon, 
Silver Glimmer Paper, Silver Embossing Powder, VersaMark ink pad.

Now please hop on over to Candy Ford's blog & enjoy her beautiful white creation! You can get there by clicking her name here or the icon below!!!

And since this is our last hop of the year, a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah
Happy New Years, or a splendid Holiday if you celebrate something different! 
Here's to an amazing 2017 for us all!!!

Happy Stampin'!


COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

Welcome to the first week of December's 
Coloring Down the Lines 
Blog Hop!!! This month we are all about glitz & glam! Our cards will have silver and/or gold!!! Love the bling idea!!! Thanx Robbie!!!

So you're hopping here from Helen's blog!! Love her sparkle!!! After here, head to Sandy's blog! Nice to have her hopping this week!!!

So here's my card:


Here's our inspiration:


So you say Gold I'm going Gold!!! I've had this design in mind for awhile. Not sure why it came to me! lol It's a bit flashy, but I love how it turned out!!!! In the photo, the Glimmer Paper looks like snow!!! lol

So my gold here is from the amazing Gold Glimmer Paper!!! I also used the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper for the snowman! Can u say sparkle!!! lol

The additions to the snowman & the banners were made with Pink Flamingo and Candy Candy Lane Washi Tape.  Just to let ya know, the black washi has bits of gold in it!!! lol

So I simply used circle punches & created the snowman! Simple!  The letters are from the Labeler Alphabet stamp set! I don't know what I'll do if they retire this one!!!  

All finished off with Black & Candy Cane Lane Bakers Twine.  I will say, it helps to add a bit of the Tombo Multi glue under the washi when working with washi on Glimmer paper! Helps it all stick!

So hope you enjoyed! I'm working on more silver & gold for next week!!!

Happy Stampin!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

Here we are-our last 
Coloring Down the Lines 
Blog Hop of November! Wow! Where did the month go??? Well we are happy to share one more week of thanks with you! Then on to the big show!!!

You've probably arrived here from Helen's happenin' blog! When you are through hop over to Lizzy's blog for some thankful cheer!

Here's my card:


Here's the inspiration photo:


So this was just a fun card to use some items I haven't brought out in awhile. I wanted to use my Swirly Scribbles Framelits. Haven't seen them in awhile! There is a stamp set to go with, but I didn't use it here!

You may recognize the 15-17 In-Colors here! Strawberry Slush, Cucumber Crush & Tip-Top Taupe! It was a dreary day when I created this so I wanted something bright to cheer things up!

The beautiful background is from the Affectionately Yours DSP. The only embellishments are the Burlap Ribbon, Natural Twine & Pearl Basic Jewels.  The sentiment is from the Crazy About You stamp set!

So just a fun card this week! Next week we begin the month of December! And you can probably guess what we will be featuring then!!! Can I just say-BLING!!! WOOHOO!!!!!

Happy Stampin'!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

Well it's Thanksgiving week!!! And our third week of thank you cards on our 
Coloring Down the Lines 
Blog Hop!!!  
This has been a fun month! Lots of great thank you cards with one more week to go!

You may be hopping here from Helen's blog! Be sure to hop on over to 
Lizzy's blog next!!! I'm very "thankful" to be the bologna in their sandwich! lol

Here's my card this week:


Here's the inspiration:


So this is a fairly simple card for a reason-it's designed for a good friend who did something really nice last week or me! She is awesome, and she likes the simple things in life! Not really flashy or busy! She loves my CAS (Clean & Simple) cards. So this is for her!

The flower is from the Sunshine Wishes Framelits collection! I love these! There is a cool stamp set to match! But I didn't use it for this card.

I used my favorite DSP like ever-Serene Scenery!! I love this little pack!!!! It just add such a pop! When you see it in person, this card actually looks textured!!! It's so cool!!!

To finish it off, I simply added some Burlap Ribbon, Pearl Basic Jewels, and a sentiment from Sheltering Tree! Simple yet effective!!!!

I would like to wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving! And always remember to be thankful for the little things in life!

Happy Stampin'!

So the stamp set is called Paisleys & Posies! It has the most amazing matching Paisley Framelits!!! It's so easy & versatile1 Perfect for any occasion! It's my current fave! You'll see lots of it! lol

I heat embossed the images with Copper Embossing Powder on our most beautiful Copper Foil Sheets! Wow are these beautiful in person!!! The embossing really brings it out too!!!!  Then I added some Burlap Ribbon and a few Pearl Basics to finish it off! I'm very happy with how this card turned out!!!

COLORING DOWN THE LINES!

Welcome to Week 2 of Thanks here on the 
Coloring Down the Lines 
Blog Hop!!!  November is definitely the month for gratitude!!

Hello hoppers from Robbie's blog! Don't forget to head over to Lizzy's blog when u r through here!! We are only 4 this week! But 4 Strong!!!

Here's my card:


Here's our inspiration photo:


So one more week without going all fall! Because I totally have one beautiful fall thank you's coming up! I just wanted something that didn't make me focus on the winter days ahead! I'm such a summer girl that the thought of cold and nastiness ahead just makes me quiver! But the warmth of Thanksgiving holiday & Christmas ahead warm my heart! But this week, just a cute thank you card!

So I visited my old friend Grateful Bunch stamp set! This one is so striking! Especially when you cut out the flowers with the coordinating Blossom Punch. They really pop!  All the stamping, including the sentiment, is from that one set! I like to feature the stamp sets that way. Show their versatility.

I simply punched out a tag with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and added a bit of Night of Navy Bakers Twine for affect!  Hope you like & feel loved & thanked!!!

Happy Stampin'!

This month we are "giving thanks" with our 
My Paper Pumpkin 
kits!!!!

So first, here's my card this month-the altered My Paper Pumpkin card:


Here are the original My Paper Pumpkin cards as included in the kit:


So our job this month was to create an altered card/project using materials from the October My Paper Pumpkin kit! Now the kits usually reflect the concepts for the following month-so October was for November. Make sense? Give ya time to craft!! So our October kid was for giving Thanks!

Well, there are so many beautiful ways to alter the intended creations from the original kit. You can use other beautiful Stampin' Up! materials to create something else, or you can use only the exclusive kit materials to create something different! I always like to use the materials exclusive to the kit so you can see the versatility of the kit! They give you the card ideas, but it's fun to come up with other ideas.  You will see both examples on this blog hop!

So all the materials used in my altered card come from the kit! No extras!  Maybe you got an idea on how to alter your kit!!!

If you love these creations and want to explore My Paper Pumpkin for yourself, visit my store & check it out! Just click the link above! I'd love to help you discover the fun!!!! One month, 3 months, 6 months or even a year!!! The kits even come with an exclusive stamp set each month!!! Everything you need to create the monthly project is included!!! Plus lots of extras for your other projects! Join the fun!!!

Now keep hopping onto Darla's blog and beyond to see the versatility of these amazing monthly kits!!!! You can get there by clicking her name here or the icon for our hop below!!!

Happy Stampin'!!
