Heartfelt Blooms


This is a new kind of stamp from Stampin' Up!   It has a Patent Pending....and It is called a Distinktive stamp. You can't buy this set either...it is a Sale a bration stamp set, FREE with a $50 order.    I didn't need another flower stamp set and had no intentions on getting it.   When I placed my 2nd preorder ( a perk for demonstrators only) I decided to get it for the Greetings! Who was I kidding???!!!  

This stamp makes an impact no matter what color you use, if you use layers, or embellishments or not.   Here are a few I did in different colors and styles.

This first card I used Daffodil Delight ink and stamped the flower all over on Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the greeting from Colorful Seasons in Archival Basic Black ink.   No layers and no embellishments.   Super quick and easy.



This next card we made at my class in January.   I stamped the flower image in Bermuda Bay ink on a Bermuda Bay card.   I also stamped the flower image on a white panel in Bermuda Bay ink and placed it on top of a black panel card stock.  I stamped the greeting in Basic Black Archival ink and punched it out with the new Tailored Tag punch and sponged the edges in Bermuda Bay ink and used dimensionals to add to the card and also added some small pearls on either side of the greeting.


I made a bookmark using Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate inks on Whisper White Cardstock and punched the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, added the greeting in Basic Black Archival Ink from the Stamp Set Artistically Asian and tied some Bermuda Bay Ribbon on top.



This card uses a Tranquil Tide card base and layered Lemon Lime Twist.   I stamped the flower with Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White card stock and used Fine Tip glue to make it shiny on top.    I stamped the dots from the Perennial Birthday stamp set with Crumb Cake ink, stamping off first each time.  I stamped the Greeting, also from Perennial Birthday in Basic Black Archival ink.  I tied some Tranquil Tide ribbon with a knot at the top.


I kept my Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime inks out for this one.   Stamping the flower in both colors on Whisper White Card stock.   I stamped the greeting from Big on Birthdays with Basic Black Archival ink.   - Next time I will used my Stamparatus to stamp that greeting as it didn't turn out as dark as I would have liked.   I tied some Lemon Lime Ombre ribbon with a knot. 


Here are all the cards together.   I made these in about 20 minutes (plus drying time for the Fine Tip Glue).

I hope you enjoyed these cards, they were a lot of fun to make.   Easy and quick.

Heartfelt Blooms by Stampin' Up! - in any color

Flower stamps, we all have them, don't we?   I have so many that when I opened the Sale a Bration (SAB) brochure and saw this set, my first thought was I really don't need another flower set and kept on looking.   I placed a preorder and and chose the thinlit set for my FREE item.   My 2nd preorder was smaller because I had earned $100 FREE from my sales for last year!! WOOHOO.   I decided I would get this set, just for the sentiments as I didn't need another flower set....

BOY was I wrong!   This set stamps well in any color ink and just ink up and stamp.    Here are some of the items I made with this stamp set, all in a short time.    The longest time making any of these was waiting for the Fine tip glue to dry on the Lemon Lime Twist card!   It works like Crystal Effects that we used to carry works, makes it glossy (hard to see in the photo).



What is your favorite color combinations for this set? 



You can only get this set for FREE!   Purchase $50 before shipping and tax and you can choose this set for FREE.   You can place your order on my website,.  Just choose the items you want to purchase, at least $50 before shipping and tax and when you go to the  Shopping Cart it will give your your choices for your SAB item.   Don't forget to use the Hostess Code  XKQU2XDY
to get in a drawing for some FREEBIES from Me.

New Year - Starting New Stampin' Habits


WOW missing in action for a month.   It went by so fast with planning for holidays away from home.   Spending time with family and coming home with pneumonia.   Not as I planned to end the year!

I want to share more and post more this year, at least once a week.  I will try and keep these posts short and sweet, sharing projects and tips I learn and like to share with you.

When my facebook videos get better, I will upload them to YouTube.

Two things I need help on, updating this blog, putting the catalogs in the sidebars, and updating these things.  I need to do them without breaking the bank.   If you have ideas, I would love to hear them.

Here is one of many cards I made this year to send out at Christmas, Everything was stamped and embossed and colored in with markers and Stampin' Blends.   The beach hut and shells were all fussy cut out by hand by my husband!  I wish I would have taken a better photo because I think it is much prettier in person!





The Occasions catalog and Sale a Bration starts in just 2 days,  If you need the catalogs, send me a message so I can get one to you.  Purchase on my website using the Hostess Code in January, XKWU2XDY, gets you some free goodies from me.  Purchase at least $50 before shipping and tax and you get to choose something FREE from the Sale a Bration catalog.

Here is the only thing I have stamped since getting sick with pneumonia...  When people order from the Hostess code in the month.  I put their names in a drawing to receive some FREE goodies.   December I gave away almost $100 worth of current product, some my choice and some the winner's choice.   These are tags to go with their prizes.  Made with the set, Birthday Blooms (which I had never used yet!!!) and Stampin' Blends to color them in.   I used some ovals and circles I had cut out for other projects so it was just a fast project.   
ENJOY!
Stay tuned for more fun in 2018!

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest stamp set - Hedgehog

This was a bonus card from my class last week.   I saw a few of these on Pinterest and knew I had to make one too.   Isn't he cute????

I used the Hello Friend from the Oh Happy Day kit that is in the Annual Catalog.   This kit is fabulous and once your done the kit, you still have the stamp set to use over and over.   The "hedgehog" is made from the Painted Harvest stamp set that is in the Holiday Catalog and it happens to be the #1 selling stamp set from that Holiday Catalog.   I know it was my #1 stamp set that I ordered from that catalog.   I used crumb cake and soft suede inks for the hedgehog and Early Espresso ink for the greeting and his face and Garden Green for the ferns.   The card stocks that I used were Very Vanilla, Garden Green, and Early Espresso.



To get your own Painted Harvest stamp set, you can purchase it from my Online Store  and have them sent directly to you.    Anyone placing an order of $50 before ship/tax this month, using the Hostess Code:  3FFJH7RT will receive one of my Acetate boxes with 4 shimmery Christmas Cards and envelopes.   The box is so Adorable if I say so..

Beautiful you

Here's a birthday card I made for a friend, she also moved and settled on a new house too.   I used 2 stamp sets, Beautiful You and Star of Light.   I stamped the dancing lady on Whisper White and also on Eastern Palace DSP and "fussy cut" both out and glued one on the top of the other and then put her onto the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I used the colors that are in the DSP, Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim and Tranquil Tide.

I used some of the greetings from the Beautiful You stamp set for the inside too.

Like this card to recreate it?   Don't have all the supplies?   You can purchase them from my Online Store  and have them sent directly to you.    Anyone placing an order of $50 before ship/tax this month, using the Hostess Code:  3FFJH7RT will receive one of my Acetate boxes with 4 shimmery Christmas Cards and envelopes.   The box is so Adorable if I say so..
