Tutti-Frutti Happy Birthday

IMG_7981

OMG, these little critters are so cute! And I don’t say cute very often. The card was created by Deb Geier for our all demonstrator meeting. She used our new Blends alcohol markers to give each critter and trio of white perfect accents some color. So cute!

The Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes are a free with $50 purchase Sale-A-Bration item. See the rest of the Sale-A-Bration options at my online store here. Orders can be placed there as well for all the products used on this project.

Have a nice day!

Tiny Treat Box Pillow Gift

2 2018retreatbox2-001

We had a nice time at our weekend retreat. Lots of projects completed, good food and pillow gifts! I’ll share the pillow gifts in this post and the rest of the weekend photos in a second post.

We had a lunch date with my nephew at Texas Tubb’s Taco Palace on February 16th which is within walking distance of the Gail Ambrosius chocolate shop. We arrived early in the area so decided to stop in the shop. They have the best chocolate covered caramels so that was what I was thinking of purchasing.

But, the heart boxes full of assorted chocolates were on sale since it was a few days after valentine’s day. So I took the opportunity to provide retreat guests with a fancy chocolate and that chocolate needed a fancy box. So I created one!

The stamp set is Better Than Chocolate, the patterned paper is from the Coffee Break package all complimented with early espresso ink, cardstock and seam binding ribbon.

See how to create the box wrap and decorate the top in my how to video.

Beautiful Peacock

I shared this design in yesterday’s blog hop. Thanks for hopping back for the design details. I started with the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes. Bonus is that they are already cut, scored and have tone on tone “v” design printing. 2 24 2018bloghop3-001

The first layer is a diagonal striped rich razzleberry print that is part of the Sweet Soiree Memories and More card pack. It was originally sized at 4×6 inches. A 1×4 inch piece was cut off so it would fit on the card front.

Next, our delicate white doilie was cut in half and adhered as shown.

Close up of the peacock stamped on a piece of 3 x 3 7/8 inch whisper white cardstock. One of the circle stamps was used to create a daffodil delight inked border along one side and then one opposite corner. The “beautiful friend” stamp was cut using the lemon builder punch layered with a 1 inch circle punched rich razzleberry cardstock piece.

Sponge daubers were used to add daffodil light ink to the wing and head feathers. Crumb cake ink daubed underneath the peacock grounds the bird.

The lemon builder punch was used to create the sentiment.

Stamp the inside of the card with a sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set. Decorate the envelope back with daffodil delight inked peacock feathers.

Ink and Share Blog Hop

Welcome to our Sale-A-Bration blog hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Phoebe’s stop. My hop entry is below.

I used 3 different Sale-A-Bration products on my greeting card. The Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes allowed me to get to the fun faster since the card base was already cut and scored and had tone on tone printing. The rich razzleberry striped layer is an option in the Sweet Soiree Memories and More Card pack. Last, I used the Beautiful Peacock stamp set for the focal point.

The inside of the card is stamped as well using a sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set. Check back tomorrow for full design details and how to video creating the peacock focal point.

Fun Mail for Me

The logo drink mug and 30th Stampin’ Up! anniversary pin were delivered within a day of each other. Both are gifts from Stampin’ Up! The 30th anniversary pin celebrates Stampin’ Up!’s 30 years as a business. I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 15 of the last years’. My anniversary is in August.

My family and I have been with Stampin’ Up! for longer than my 15 years as a demonstrator. We made a few of my previous demonstrators happy with our family orders. I decided to sign up to enjoy the demonstrator discount after we moved into our house with an extra room that needed a hobby to fill it.

The pin is attached to my lanyard along with my 5 and 10 year pin. I am looking forward to adding my 15 year pin in the fall. I first used the drink mug at a crop so it has good paper crafting vibes.

Stampin on my friends, Stamp On!
