Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Sneak Peak

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Hope your having a wonderful week so far.

I’ve got another sneak peak for you from the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog.  I used the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life stamp set and the  new Gingham Gala 6X6 Designer Series Paper which will be available January 3, 2019.  Take a look.

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped the cake from Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the bottom.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of the panel.  I colored the word cake in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker and I colored the candle flame in using my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Marker.  I then stamped the border and dots from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the Whisper White panel.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a piece of Highland Heather Gingham Gala 6X6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  This new paper is so pretty.  There is large Gingham on one side and small Gingham on the other in 5 different colors.  This was a must have when I saw it.

I adhered the artwork to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then adhered it to a Highland Heather card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, which I had stamped with the flower image from the Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink.

On the inside I stamped the cake image from Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the Happy Birthday in Gorgeous Grape Ink over the middle of the cake.  I stamped one of the scrolls from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green toward the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cake image from the Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the bottom left front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Gingham Gala 6X6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card. This is just one of the wonderful new sets that will be available January 3, 2019.

Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Sneak Peak

Good Tuesday morning everyone.  Hope your week is starting off great.

I’ve got a sneak peak for you today from the up coming 2019 Occasions Catalog.  I’ve used the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abound Bundle for my card. Take a look.

I started with a Granny Apple Green card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Layering Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Again using my Big Shot, I cut the Butterflies from the upcoming Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies, available January 3, 2019, from Basic Black cardstock.  I adhered the butterflies to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Hello from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Highland Heather Ink.  I bannered the sentiment and adhered it to the right side of the butterflies using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the butterfly.

On the inside I stamped the splatter image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set multiple times in the center of a Whisper White panel in Highland Heather Ink, stamping off once each time.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the splatter image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered it to the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the front left of the envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the same set in Highland Heather Ink by the flowers and on the back envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the sneak peak.  This bundle will be available January 3, 2019.  Purchasing this bundle will also allow you to pick a free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog which starts on January 3, 2019 and runs until March 31, 2019.  Who doesn’t like free products???  I’ll be posting more sneak peaks of the products coming in the new Occasions Catalog in the next few weeks.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Humming Along Sneak Peek for Fab Friday Challenge

Good Tuesday morning everyone.  Hope you’ve had a good start to the week.  Hopefully you have a short work week ahead.

For today’s card I played along with the Fab Friday 150 Challenge.  Be sure to stop by the Fab Friday blog to see all the projects made.  They have a color challenge this time.  Here’s the colors I got to work with.

I’ve got another sneak peek for you for this color challenge.  I used the Stampin’ Up Humming Along stamp set that will be available on January 3, 2019.  Take a look.

I started by adhering a piece of Wood Textured Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Hibiscus image from the Humming Along stamp set, available January 3, 2019, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the leaf from the set on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then fussy cut the leaf using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the artwork to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail then I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Humming Bird in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Blackberry Bliss,Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut it using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the card front.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the Hibiscus from the Humming Along stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink stamping off twice in the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set over the flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail then adhered it to the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the Hibiscus and Humming Bird on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the sneak peek from the Humming Along stamp set.  These images are perfect to color with the Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Happy Stamping!

Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start a short work week.  If you were able to stop by my booth at the Holiday Craft Show, thank you very much I really appreciate it.  I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just 3 days away.  I’ve got a lot of baking and cooking to get done before Thursday.  How about you?

For today’s card I played along with 2 different challenges.  The first one is Freshly Made Sketches #363.  Be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all the amazing projects made.  Here is their sketch challenge.

The other challenge I played along with is Hand Stamped Sentiments #302.  Be sure to stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to see all the beautiful projects made.  Here is their color challenge.

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  I’m giving you a sneak peek of a new Stampin’ Up stamp set called Beauty Abounds that will be available January 3, 2019.  Take a look.

I started with a Thick Very Vanilla card front and stamped it with the Hardwood stamp in Crushed Curry Ink.  I adhered a strip of Merry Merlot on the right side then ran it through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I adhered the stamped panel to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds stamp set, available January 3, 2019, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment on the side in Merry Merlot Ink.  I colored the image in using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the butterfly from the stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added 3 Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the Bokeh dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the Bokeh dots.  I adhered the panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail then adhered it to the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the Bokeh Dots in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap.  I stamped the image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom left of the envelope.
