ICS BLOG HOP-BREWED FOR YOU


Welcome to this month's Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop!  Last month was for the ladies, this month is for the dudes in your life! We are featuring masculine cards! Check out all the cool creations!

Here's my card:



I am sooooo loving this Brewed for You Bundle!!! You get the really cool      Brewed for You stamp set plus the Brewed Dies! Lots & lots of fun beer stuffs! Can be used for other drinks too, but perfect for the brew lovers in your life!
And I particularly love that they included the hops in the dies! What a great idea!

It was so much fun using the window sheets as the glass! Works great when stamped with Black Stazon then cut with the die! Looks just like a glass!!!  The bottle turned out a bit darker than I planned but it's still pretty cool! Lots of clear embossing on it which doesn't really show up in the photo (looks kinda sparkly but not in real life!), but it looks like the outside of a growler bottle-if ya know ya know!!! lol

Other items I used for my card include the Heart & Home DSP (from the January
to June Mini Catalog),  Window Sheets, & the 3D Timber Embossing Folder!  Great guy stuffs!!!

So now if you want to check out some more head over to Sharon's blog! She's next in the lineup! Just click her name here or the icon below! Then keep going!!! Have fun! Cheers!

Happy Stampin'!

PAPER PUMPKIN POSSIBILITIES BLOG HOP-CHANGE IS BEAUTIFUL


Welcome to this month's Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! Change truly can be beautiful!!! And so is this kit!

Here's my card:


And here are the originals as designed:


This is a very pretty kit with a great fun fold! The cards are also super simple yet pack a cool punch! Each has a plain spot on the back for your special messages.

I always try to keep my alternatives to mostly the items in the kit to give ideas on what you can do without having all the bells & whistles! This time the only "outside the kit" items I used are the 2 different colors (Melon Mambo & Granny Apple Green) of cardstock! Everything else is from the kit! So with minimal materials you can create even this alternative!!!

I even had fun with the inside on this one:


Next up is Deb's blog! Can't wait to see what she did with this kit! Simply click her name here or the icon below!!! Then keep going for some great ideas on how to creatively use your Change is Beautiful kit!!!

NEW AT SU BLOG HOP-DAFFODIL DREAM

 


This month on our New at SU Blog Hop we are celebrating                                 Moms, Dads, Brides & Grads!!!                                                                             Lots of great spring events coming up! Good to have these on hand for whatever comes down the road! You'll get some great ideas here!

Here's my card:

I chose a generic "congratulations" card because I think it would work for a wedding, anniversary, Mother's Day, maybe a graduation of sorts. 

This was created with the lovely Daffodil Dream/Daffodil Dies Bundle from the January to June 22 Mini Catalog! Fortunately these products are carrying over into the new Annual Catalog! I absolutely love it! They are perfect images for coloring with our amazing Stampin' Blends!

And it's simplicity works well on the Heart & Home DSP! I wish this would continue! So versatile!  

Sentiment is from Happy and Heartfelt. It's cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies! It's all finished off with the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon & the                  '21-'23 In-Color Jewels!

Be sure to hop around to catch the other great creations! You are sure to find something perfect for your occasion!!! The list of our blog hop is below!!! Enjoy!

Happy Stampin'!

ICS BLOG HOP-TIMELESS TULIPS

 

I can't believe we are already getting our spring on & talking about Mother's Day!!! Now I know it's a month away, but crafting needs to start early! So on this month's Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop you'll get some good "girlie" ideas-and what's more girlie than moms-and what's more moms than Mother's Day! 

Here's my card this month:


I did decide on a Mother's Day card. This is a fairly simple card using the beautiful Flowering Fields DSP as the main focal point! They are lovely tulips! This DSP is beautiful! And fortunately it coordinates fairly well with the Timeless Tulips duo-Timeless Tulips stamp set  & Tulip Builder Punch. Getting my last hurrah out of the stamp set for sadly it's retiring this year.  But you can still get it until May 2! 

The Pastel Pearls will continue over, but the                                               Highland Heather Grosgrain ribbon will not.  Only other supplies besides inks & paper are the Layering Circles Dies. Not sure what I'd do without those!

Hope this inspires your Mother's Day creativity! It's also a lovely girlie card for any sentiment-just change out the sentiment! Girlie to me means colorful & flowery & pretty! And I think this card qualifies!!!

Sharon's blog is up next on the hop! Cant wait to see what she's designed for us! Simply click her name here or the icon below-then keep hopping around! Lots of great girlie stuffs to see this month!!!

Happy Stampin'!

NEW AT SU RETIREMENT PARADE-DAISY LANE

 


We are "hopping" on to feature some of our very favorite Last Chance items! When they're gone, they're gone for good! :(  But still available now so get them while you can! Here are some great tributes to the amazing products! Maybe you will be able to grab one!!!

Here's another card:


These both use the Daisy Lane stamp set, and the second uses the Daisy Punch.  Both are going buh bye! So sad! This has been one of my faves forever!!! I'm also using the retiring 2020-2022 In-Colors! This Bumblebee will be sorely missed by me!!!!

However, most products used are also retired! Here's what I used-PLUS the retiring In-Colors! Copping to retired ribbon but it's in the In-Colors so I won't be using it much soon!


You are now ready to travel through the rest of the Retirement Parade! You won't want to miss any of the other "last chance" products we've loved and collect the fabulous ideas shared!

PAPER PUMPKIN POSSIBILITIES KIT REUNION-BEYOND THE HORIZON

 

We know that many subscribers are waiting on their kits. While we are waiting we are doing a Kit Reunion this month so you will see ideas from various past Paper Pumpkin kits. We are getting busy with the Paper Pumpkin stamp sets and kit leftovers that we have on our shelves. Hopefully this will inspire you to tackle some of your older kits too. You might also see some Beyond the Horizon projects, it is sure to be a variety of projects to delight you!

Well, I was one of the lucky ones who received the kit on time!!! Woot woot!!  So my card is actually an alternative from the brandy new March Beyond the Horizon kit!!!! Here it is:


And here are the originals from the kit:

This month's kit has a beautiful new and EXTRA stamp set!!! There are some very pretty flowers included! I so wanted to play with that stamp set, so I've used it here in my card! I do try hard to use only items from the kit! The only non-kit item I used are the Layering Circles Dies and of course some of the ink colors! That really cool ribbon is included! And so is that beautiful leaf die cut! It's a great kit!!!!

Now hop over to June's blog to see which kit she is using! Did hers come in or is she enjoying one of our older kits? Just click on her name here or the icon below to find out! Enjoy the hop!

NEW AT SU-HELLO LADYBUG


Welcome to this month's New at Stampin' Up! Blog Hop! We are a group of demonstrators from around the world! This month we are CASEing the             Annual Catalog using products from the January to June Mini Catalog! What fun!!!!!

Here is my card:


And here is the photo from the Annual Catalog-page 43!


It's a simple CASE (Copy and Share Everything)! I love these little ladybugs-my granddaughter is my little ladybug, so they hold special meaning for me!
The Hello Ladybug stamp set bundled with the Ladybug Punch really makes this fun & easy!
I didn't have any DSP that I thought would be just right so I created my own using the leaf from the stamp set! Add some Black Matte Dots & it's a fun little card! Simple & sweet-like the strawberries!

I love this layout! Perfect for these little punches!!!

Next up on our hop is Ginger! Click her name here or the icon below & visit her blog! Then check our all the other CASEs! This was a lot of fun!

Happy Stampin'!

ICS BLOG HOP-NEW HORIZONS SUITE

 


This month on our Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop we are exploring our favorite bundles! I have quite a few, but my current "most" favorite is the                        On the Horizon Bundle.                                                                                This is actually part of the New Horizons Suite which has some DSP to die for and some other cool elements! It can be found in the                                            2022 January-June Mini Catalog!

Here's my card:


One of the elements I love the most in this bundle is the fence die.                      The New Horizons 6x6 DSP is so pretty! It looks like landscapes! Simply add the fence posts, & it's a beautiful scene!  Oh and those Pebbles Enamel Shapes are one of my favorite embellishments ever! So fun! Sentiment is cut out with the   Tasteful Labels Dies

Here's another one with a different piece of DSP. Same basic layout but a very different feel. Just has a bit of grass from a die cut is all I really added. And the fence is embossed. 

These cards literally took no time to put together yet they look like so much!!!! That's the beauty of the suite! You NEED this one!

Happy Stampin'!!!

PPP BLOG HOP-SAFARI CELEBRATION!



 

Welcome to this month's Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are sharing some fun ideas from our February kit called Safari Celebration! This is a fun kit! Check out our alternatives!!!

Here's my card:

As usual, I try really hard to keep the alternatives to the materials within the kit. I think it's important to feature what fun can be done with only the kit materials! While it is fun to pull in all our other materials, I like to think of the kit as a      "grab-&-go" experience! That way if you go on vacation. or the doctor's office, or waiting in the pick-up line, you can use all the materials that are self-contained! Right in your little Paper Pumpkin box!

I kept the leaves the focus of the card. It totally changes the tone of the kit! Although I do miss the fun animals!

Here are what the original designs in the kit look like:

So cute right? I have so many more ideas running in my head!

Now hop to Lisa Ann's blog. She's up next! Simply click on her name here or the icon below! Then visit the rest of the blogs in our hop! So much fun & ideas!

And don't forget, through the end of February a purchase of $50 or more will get you an amazing Sale-a-bration item too!!!

Now this girl here is from Cape Cod, so anything ocean or nautical really gets my attention! And this Oceanfront stamp set is the vision in my mind 24/7!

Now I've been working hard on my simple stamping. I'm a very clean & simple stamper anyway-clean lines r us! But simple stamping is a bit difficult for me. I feel like I'm not putting in the effort! lol Well this stamp set is simple stamping at its best!!!! I really added so little because I simply let the stamps & ink take the lead here!!!

Gotta decorate the inside:

Other items used in this card are the stamp sets Special Moments &                  On the Horizon, and the Pebbles Enamel Shapes.  That's it! Simple Stamping!!!!!
