Twinkle Twinkle Card


This card was one of the four make and takes from Saturday's Crop Kingston All Day Crop. In each Grab Bag was the Twinkle Designer Series Paper that was used for all name and takes. I love this paper but not the coordinating stamp set (it is cute but not something I see myself using). The punched image and the designer series paper with a sentiment from another stamp set is perfect to welcome baby!

Our next crop is Sat Sep 22 at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, On! Cost is $30. Sign up here!

Supplies
Stamps: Special Celebrations
Colours: Night of Navy, Gray Granite
Accessories: Night of Navy Solid Baker's Twine, Twinkle Adhesive Backed Stars, Layering Circle Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals

Display Stamper Projects!

I'm headed to OnStage in Orlando, Florida this November. I'm very excited to be able to go and that my husband will travel with me before to do some sightseeing before hand!! Stampin' Up! has asked for Display Stampers so this blog post is all about my application projects.


First up is my scrapbook page, this page uses items from the beautiful Lots of Happy Card Kit. The cards in the kit are awesome the elements in the kit can be used for lots of other projects! To the kit I added a piece of Whisper White 12"x12" cardstock, pieces of Sahara Sand and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the Whisper White panels to frame the pictures. The flowers were all coloured in using the watercolour pencils included in the kit - Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime twist.


The Under the Sea Framelits makes this project easy! The only freehand cutting I did was around the back seaweed. For the sand dollars I stamped the net onto Whisper White cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot with the sand dollar framelits, then used my Aquapainter with a small amount of Crumb Cake ink to muddy the lines a bit.


My first Christmas card this year! It features 2 products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue: Timeless Tidings stamp set and the Sprig Punch. The designer series paper is Under the Mistletoe from the Annual Catalogue. I think the gold really pops with Old Olive. I used the Stampin' Blends to colour in the mistletoe.


My second 3D item is a cute pillow box decorated with the Under the Mistletoe designer series paper and the Stitched Labels Framelits. The Kraft Pillow Boxes already have the polka dots on them and coordinate with so many of our designers series papers and colours.


This card was my first using my new Stampin' Blends - Highland Heather and Old Olive. It's relaxing to sit and colour in the images! It also shows off the new 3/16" Braided Linen Trim from the Holiday Catalogue.



A baby card using the Twinkle Twinkle suite. Instead of the stamp set that is part of this suite I decided to use the Special Celebrations stamp set. Do you notice the Twinkle adhesive-backed Sequins? The sticky stars and the punch are my favourites from this suite.


Thanks for checking out all my projects! If I'm selected I'll share my completed projects for Onstage after the event!

Extraordinary Hop: Happy Anniversary

Welcome to our Anniversary Blog Hop to celebrate 2 years! I haven't participated for all the blog hops but it's fantastic that this group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators have done them for this long! And what better way to celebrate than creating an anniversary card. This card could also be used for so many other celebrations as well - baby, job promotion, moving into a new home, etc.

With my Holiday Catalogue preorder I decided it was time to order some Stampin' Blends and this card was perfect to try them out. I still have to practice but I really like how the leaves turned out! I also used them to colour the pearls using the Dark Highland Heather Blend. The ribbon is new from the Holiday Catalogue, it's the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim and it is awesome! I puffed out the loops of the bow to give it more dimension. 

Supplies
Stamps: Petal Palette
Colours: Highland Heather, Gray Granite, Whisper White
Accessories: Petals & More Thinlits, Pearls, Blends: Highland Heather and Old Olive, Petal Pair Textured Embossing Folders, Stampin' Dimensionals

August Swap Card

I really miss Soft Sky that was retired in May but Balmy Blue works very well with Pool Party. They are both in the Subtles collection so they work together very well!

Supplies
Stamps: Tropical Chic
Colours:  Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Silver, Whisper White
Accessories:  Subtle Embossing Folder, Tropical Thinlits, Metallics Sequin assortment, Stampin' Dimensionals, Pearls

Drinks Galore - Global Stamping Friends

Welcome all to the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Drinks Galore! So glad you are taking some time to visit our blogs and seeing all our wonderful projects. I had to think and do a lot of Pinterest searching for ideas for today's theme! Although I knew that I wanted to use the Coffee Cup Framelits.

My original plan was to make a card but none of my ideas worked. So I dug through my other items to see what I could make for a 3D project! Decided to use the very versatile 3" x 6" gusseted cellophane bag and a coffee pod. Although my husband was concerned that I took his last coffee pod to make this project! I'll make sure to buy him more for this weekend. :)

Supplies
Stamps: Tropical Chic
Colours: Whisper White
Accessories: Coffee Cup Framelits, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, gusseted cellophane bag, Rhinestone, Everyday Label punch, Stampin' Dimensional, Tear & Tape Adhesive

Thank you for stopping by!
