Lotus Blossom

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Lotus Blossom sample-3

This is the third card we made at stamp club this month with the Lotus Blossom stamps set.

It uses one of my very favorite colors – Coastal Cabana – with Bermuda Bay.

Is it really going to be a retiring color come next annual catalogue???  I’m starting to stress over it…

I did receive my very first Paper Pumpkin craft kit in the mail last week and kinda squealed.  There are A LOT of stamp images included in this month’s kit. Have you seen it yet?

My oldest daughter and I took a few minutes last Saturday and put a few of these fun guys together.

Can’t wait to see what next month’s kit is going to be!!

Don’t forget – during Sale-A-Bration – you can order a 3 month subscription for a lowered price of $68.85.  This also qualifies you for a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration offerings!  It’s a win-win!!!

Place an order HERE with item #137859 (3 month subscription) and get a FREE product!

TTFN!

Irresistibly Yours Specialty Paper

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Lotus Blossom sample-2

I loved getting together with my stamp clubs last week and featuring some Sale-a-Bration items Stampin’ Up! is offering FREE with any $60 purchase this year.  The Lotus Blossom stamp set is SOOOO fun to work with and it has pretty forgiving images too, meaning, you don’t have to line everything up perfectly to make a striking flower!  Bonus for us stampers!!

The other free item on this card is the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper.  This paper package is on page 15 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure and it’s hard to tell what the paper actually looks and feels like by the product photo.  Each page is a strong white cardstock with clear embossed images on it.  You can add color to the cardstock by sponging, spritzing, stamping, coloring, etc.  The embossed images resist the color and a pattern emerges as ink is added creating your personally designed DSP!!

To create the background paper I used on today’s card, I sponged the Irresistibly Yours cardstock with Pear Pizzazz and a sponge avoiding some of the edges and corners.  I then stamped some images from Gorgeous Grunge in Always Artichoke ink and finished it off by buffing the whole piece with a clean dry tissue.  This removed any ink on the embossed sections and kept everything in the background.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Lotus Blossom, Gorgeous Grunge

Ink & Paper – Whisper White, Irresistibly Yours DSP, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Always Artichoke, Pear Pizzazz, Stazon black ink

Accessories – Big Shot & Deco Labels framelits, dimensionals, rhinestone gem

What is your favorite Sale-A-Bration offering this year?

Computers – love em’ or hate em’?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Good grief!  I have not been able to get onto my website to post for about 10 days now!  Everytime I turned my computer on, the wireless router would stop working on all devices in our home.  After three new routers, two trips to our internet provider, and countless problem solving hours put in by my genius husband Chris, he has found the source of the problem – my new camera program.  Ugh!  Now, I have internet on my computer, but am not able to download any new photos until Chris has time to figure out why the internet/router hates my Canon camera program.

Good thing I have a bunch of projects to still show you from my February events!

Paper Pumpkin Excitement

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Hello stampin’ friends!

I’m back from Leadership in Orlando Florida and although the sky is just as blue, the temperature where I live (Calgary, AB Canada) is NOT even close to temperatures we enjoyed last week!  Oh well…what do you do…

Attending the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference is always a highlight of the year for me.  Its a welcome getaway after the busy holiday season and the conference energizes me and fills me with excitement for the coming year.

What did I get super excited about this year?

PAPER PUMPKIN KITS

A 3-month Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscription is a perfect way to give Paper Pumpkin a try!

For the first time ever, Stampin’ UP! is lowering the price of the 3-month prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription.  During Sale-A-Bration, you can save money and instantly qualify for a Sale-A-Bration FREE product of your choice!

Why did Stampin’ UP! choose to discount the 3 month subscription? Because all good things come in threes! Here are three things I, and you’ll, love.

  1. Save $6.00 on your subscription.
  2. The price point instantly qualifies for a FREE Sale-A-Bration product.
  3. Skip to the fun for three months with all the stamps, ink, and paper ready to go for amazing papercrafting projects.

I’ve seen a sneak peak of the next few monthly kits and they looked so fun, the first thing I did when I got home was to sign up to receive my own monthly kits!  Here are a few sample of past kits:
