PPP BLOG HOP-MY WONDERFUL FAMILY


Welcome to this month's 
Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop
This month's amazing kit is so cool! All about My Wonderful Family! So many options with this! Especially right now where our family is so important-some so far, others close but not seen in awhile.  

Now for my alternative creation this month I kind of went outside of the box! I used the really cool stamp set from the kit to create a different kind of Mother's Day card! Since we can't see our moms for the most part don't forget to send her a card!!!


Now I wouldn't have thought of this if I hadn't had the stamp set laying upside down on my work space! When I looked quick it reminded me of an actual dress i had worn in a play years ago! lol And I happened to have the (sadly retiring) Beautiful You stamp set so I thought this would work!

It's actually a fairly simple card using the retiring In-Colors! Gonna really miss these!!!! The Pearl Basic Jewels were colored with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blend! NO-these are NOT being discontinued!!! lol I've had so many questions about that!!! They are simple reconfiguring! Trust me-they're there!!!

The 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon is also going.  Oh well. Sad to say goodbye to an old friend!

Other items used: Classic Label Punch, Stitched Rectangle Framelits, Stampin' Markers, and the Shimmer Paint.

Hope you enjoyed! Not hop over to Terri's blog & enjoy her creation-then keep on going! All you need to do  is click on either her  name here or the icon below!!! 

Happy Stampin'!

ICS-TIMELESS TULIPS


Welcome to our April 2020 Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop!!! While we are all keeping close to home (at least I hope you are!), let this hop bring you a ray of sunshine!!!  It's just like we're all hanging out together-yet way apart! 

This month we are focusing on monochromatic "girlie" cards! These are some of my faves to create! It's a bit of a challenge to stick to one color (with white, vanilla or black of course), but fun! And my "girlie"friends like to get my cards so here's mine! I went with a "girlie" Easter card because I can't see any of my "girlie"friends this Easter. So sad.  I decided to go with red-in particular 
Poppy Parade- as it fit the stamp set, and flowers because, well, "girlie"!!! lol

So here's my card:


I actually did 2 versions of this card because I couldn't decide which I liked better. This is the 2nd. I just thought it needed "something", and being limited to only red couldn't do any green stems or anything.  IDK, which do you like best? Would love the feedback.


Either way, the stamp set is Timeless Tulip.  I. love. this. stamp. set! So pretty and so easy to use with the coordinating Tulip Builder Punch! Seriously-Stampin' Up! does all the work for ya!!!! I did, of course, needed to use the Very Vanilla and the Basic Black for the stamping.

I sprayed the whole card with some bling! I mix the 
Frost White Shimmer Paint with some rubbing alcohol in my 
Stampin' Spritzer & spray away! See the sparkle here? Wasn't sure if it showed up in the original pics!


Other items used were the Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Metallic Edge Ribbon, Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends and the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

Now please keep hopping to Audra's blog to see which color she used! Just click her name or the icon below! This is the perfect way to "visit" with so many friends yet still keep our social distancing! I know you'll find many creations to enjoy!!!

Please stay home. Stay safe.  Stay stamping.

Happy Stampin'!!!!
