I Miss You - Super Sweet Card Using Brand New Stampin' Up! Products

Hi everyone!  I have a super quick post for you today.  This card is so sweet and was so incredibly easy to make.  The cute elephant stamp is from a brand new Stampin' Up! hostess set called Love You Lots (you can get this set if you spend $150 or more, either through a worskhop or individually).  The sentiment is from another hostess set called Gift of Love.  I used Gorgeous Grunge to make the background and of course I used the brand new In Color, Sweet Sugarplum and also Basic Grey.


How cute is that little elephant?!?! :)  I'll link for you below everything I used to create this card.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by!

A Stampin' Up! Happy Hello!

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I have a fun card to share with you today using the brand new Swirly Bird stamp set from Stampin' Up!  (I cannot leave that stamp set alone, I LOVE it! :)).  Here's my card:


I used some new incolors on this card, I used Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach.  I then sponged around the panel with Tempting Turquois ink and then stamped the swirls in Soft Sky ink.  The butterfly was cut out using the Bold Butterflies thinlets.  I added some pearls as well.  What do you think?

Thinking of You - Super Simple Card Using Stampin' Up! products

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!  We made it! :)  This is my first week back to work after being on maternity leave so it's been a bit rough, but I'm so glad it's Friday and the weekend is almost here! :)  I have a super simple, easily duplicable card I wanted to share with you today.  This one was so easy to make, but really has that wow effect and I think would make someone's day to receive this in the mail. 



For this card, I used the "thinking of you" stamp from the Pop of Paradise stamp set (one of my favorites in the new catalog).  I first inked it in Versamark ink, then stamped it down and then heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder.  I then cut it out using the Sweet and Sassy heart framelits from the catalog.  I layered it with another heart cut out of Blushing Bride glimmer paper.  I added some gold thread as well.  I also used gold foil paper and new Blushing Bride ribbon.  What do you think? 

Thanks so much as alwys for stopping by.  I'll link for you below all the products I used to create this card.  Have a fabulous day! :)

Happy Father's Day - Using Foxy Friends Stampin' Up! Stamp Set

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday!  Today is my first day back to work after having our sweet baby boy.  I'm glad to get back to work, I really love my job, but I sure do miss my babies.  Anyway, I wanted to share the Father's Day card I created using the brand new Foxy Friends stamp set and the Fox Builder Punch from Stampin' Up!  I had so much fun using these new products.  I'll have a video up soon on how to use the punch with the stamps.  Here's my card:




How cute is this little fox?!?!  I used Tangerine Tango ink for my fox and then used the punch to add dimension to the tail and face.  The little foxes represent our two little boys, I cut them out of the designer series paper pack.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.

Thankful for You - New Card Using Stampin' Up!'s Sheltering Tree Stamp Set

Hi everyone and Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. For today's card, I used one of my absolute favorite Stampin' Up! stamp sets.  It's called Sheltering Tree and I can never let it sit too long without using it, I just love it! :)




I had lots of fun creating this card.  I'll link for you below all the items I used to create this card.  To create the sky, I just sponged around the images with Tempting Turquois ink.  The clouds are from the Tree Builder punch, I just punched them out of white cardstock and inked around them with Tempting Turquois ink.  What do you think? 

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.

Sending Smiles - A Cute CASE using Stampin' Up!'s Swirly Bird Stamp Set

Hi everyone,

I have a super cute card to share with you today. I got the idea from another demonstrator (I can't find the original post now to give her proper credit by name). I tweaked her design just a bit and made it my own. I used the Swirly Bird stamp set for everything but the bear's nose, for that, I used a nose image from the Playful Pals stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect stamp set.  Here's my card:



That's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by!  I will link below all the products I used to create this card :)

Thank You Card Using Brand New Swirly Bird Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Hi everyone!  One of the many fabulous things about  joining Stampin' Up! is the fabulous team I get to be a part of.  We have recently started doing team challenges and we have a theme challenge and a color challenge.  This week's color challenge was to use the following colors: Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, and Rich Razzleberry (the first two colors are brand new In Colors and they are so gorgeous).  Here's my card:



For my card, I used the brand new Swirly Bird stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles thinlet dies.  I inked around the main panel with Sweet Sugarplum ink.  I then added the new ribbon in Flirty Flamingo and then added the sentiment using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and coordinating punch.  I added some gold metallic thread as well as some rhinestones.  What do you think?  I just love these colors together, really beautiful!

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.

Hello - Brand New Card Using Brand New Products from the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Hi everyone and Happy Sunday!  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!  I have a brand new card to share with you today using brand new proudcts from the brand new Stampin' Up! catalog!  I'm so excited to share this with you so here it is:


This card uses the brand new stamp set called Pop of Paradise.  I embossed the flamingo - here's a tip, you can emboss in any color with clear embossing powder; simply ink the image with Versamark ink then put it directly into the colored ink pad of your choosing, then sprinkle with clear embossing powder, then dry with your heat gun.  It's a really cool effect.  I also embossed the pineapples with gold embossing powder.  The DP is brand new as well, it's called Pop of Pink and it's gorgeous.  The baker's twine is also new, it's called thick Melon Mambo Baker's Twine and I love it!  I also embossed the sentiment in gold embossing powder and cut it out using the new nesting circle framelits.  I cut the flamingo and the gold glitter paper out using the Lots of Labels framelits.  What do you think?  Here are some more pictures that really show off the embossing:




I hope you are all super excited for this new catalog.  It's truly the best one yet!  Stop back tomorrow, I got my big catalog order in and I'm going to have a video for you showcasing the new goodies I got.  I'll also be doing a give away soon so stop back often :)  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.

Inky Hugs,

Christine
