Happy Easter Blog Hop

Happy Easter, everyone! C’mon in and take a peep peek at our April blog hop…

Silly me forgot to snap a photo of the Easter card I sent out to my family this year, so I’ve chosen to show you another card that I did for a fellow co-worker who recently retired. She was moving out of state and taking very little with her, so a bouquet of roses simply wouldn’t have been practical as a gift.  The Petal Passion Suite came to my rescue and I made her a card with roses that would last forever! 


I stamped the roses from Petal Palette stamp set and colored them with Stampin’ Blends markers and die-cut them with the Petals & More Thinlits dies. The sweet little bird is from the same stamp set and also has a coordinating die to cut him out with.  With so many images in this stamp set, it wasn’t difficult to find a greeting and additional flowers to complete the front panel.  The Basic Black card base was layered with two of the lovely patterns found in the Petal Passion designer series paper pack.  A little Whisper White 1/4″ Organza ribbon and a few rhinestones were all the accents needed to complete this card.  With 15 images in the stamp set, 10 dies in the coordinating die set, and the gorgeous papers, ribbon and embossing folders, this suite is by far one of my most favorite in the Occasions catalog!

If only spring would arrive in my neck of the woods.  As I write, it is a brisk 23 degrees out which feels like 14 with the wind chill.  Yes, it’s April and we are still talking about wind chill factors!  I’m heading back to my studio to stamp some more birds and flowers and dream of spring.  I hope you’ll head over to Kathya’s blog and see what she’s stamped for you today.

Blossoming Basket Bundle

There’s still a few weeks left in Stampin’ Up!’s best sale of the year – Sale-a-Bration!  The Blossoming Basket Bundle is one of the newly added items you can earn for free with a $100 order (before tax/shipping).  Did you know that the embossing folder in this bundle will be carried over into the upcoming Annual Catalog? 

I just got this set and can’t wait to play with it.  How about you? 


It’s a Celebration…

I’m using Sale-a-Bration products to celebrate the launch of my brand-spankin’ new blog design!  Whaddya think?  

Red, White, and Blue Brusho Card with Celebrate You Thinlits

I started messing around with the half star burst stamp from the Sale-a-Bration set called Amazing You and realized that by stamping it twice, it kind of looked like a burst of fireworks.  Fireworks made me think of red, white, and blue and since I just happened to have red and blue Brusho crystals on my desk, a 4th of July card started happening.  I had white embossed starbursts, but the piece just needed more sparkle – enter the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (Also a Sale-a-Bration award!) and some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper – the perfect touch!

March begins the final month of Sale-a-Bration – the best promotion of the year!  Don’t wait too long to get your favorite choices – things will start selling out, and are only available while supplies last.  And, for the first time ever, The Celebrate You Thinlits as well as the Basket Weave Embossing Folder will be carried over into the upcoming 2018/2019 Annual Catalog!

Off you go to see what products Kathya has been playing with.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
