Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase wedding, anniversary or Valentine’s day cards. You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

The Be Mine Stitched framelits has 16 dies to select from. I used 5 of the 16 options. The open heart swag created lots of mini hearts to decorate the card with. The flirty flamingo patterned hearts are cut from the All My Love dsp using the Be Mine Stitched framelits.

Use our Heart Epoxy Droplets to create easy bubbles over the mini hearts. A Petal Pink Frosted Flower Embellishment adds balance to the design. A snippet of each of the ribbons in the All My Love ribbon combo pack adds structure.

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop Be My Valentine

28701642_10216314905810036_5229522907894174650_o

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the January Paper Pumpkin kit, Be My Valentine, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from June Olsen’s blog. She had a great project!

The chameleon stamp with the fly friend is part of the included stamp set in the Paper Pumpkin kit. After all the kit supplies are used up, you can still use the stamp set on alternate projects. So I decided to use garden green ink on the stamp and color using ink pads and a blender pen.

All the solid colored paper was processed through the Big Shot using either the new Rectangle Stitched framelits (item # 148551, 13 sizes in this set!) or the squares from the Stitched Shapes framelits (item #145372). The “You’re So Fly” piece was stamped on a strip of whisper white that was 1/2 inch high. Then it was cut using the smallest square framelit giving it a coordinating stitched look on 2 sides.

The full card…

Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop

Welcome to the Celebration themed Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. It’s demonstrators’ choice for the celebration theme! We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. If you are on the hop trail, you may have arrived from Jo Blackman’s blog. She had a great layout!

My project started with the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-bration 2019 stamp set. I had visions of multi-colored cupcake frosting with blackberry bliss wrappers. The 12×12 inch background and top photo mat are blackberry bliss too. The “sprinkles” stamp was used as a background stamp instead of cupcake toppers.

Sale-a-bration 2019 Paper Crafting Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Sale-a-bration 2019 products. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to spotlight buzzing butterflies using the Botanical Butterfly Sale-a-bration 2019 designer series paper and coordinating Butterfly Duet punch. The “a little note” sentiment is part of the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Mini Blog Hop

Today features a mini Blog Hop! Tracy and I are doing a test run of linking our posts. So this hop is just 2 stops. Quick and fun so you can spend a little time in your stamp room recreating our projects:)

My hand stamped greeting card features Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink which is a rich, dark purple. Daffodil delight and whisper white cardstock add contrast to the blackberry bliss. Snippets of organdy ribbon from the Sale-a-bration combo pack provide a soft look reminiscent of luscious frosting.

These are all the supplies I used to create the card. I wanted to show that the Lemon Lime Twist patterned piece has a black and white butterfly print on the opposite side. These 2 prints are my least favorite in the Sale-a-bration Botanical Butterfly DSP package because they are monochromatic. That just means we need to add our own flair to the prints:) The “sprinkles” stamp was inked using blackberry bliss ink and added to the edges of the lemon lime twist paper for my flair.
