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 Anastasia Radloff’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to make it easy on myself and use the fabulous Botanical Butterfly designer series paper as the focal point on the hand stamped greeting card. There are lots of already colored butterflies in large and medium sizes on this sheet. Just use a Stampin’ Up! paper snips to cut around the wings and voila! Instant beauty!

Stamp a flourish from the Falling Flowers stamp set and “a little note” from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in balmy blue ink. Use a sponge dauber to highlight the berries in grapefruit grove ink. Change out the inks and cardstock layers to match the colors of the butterfly for cheerful cards.

After I created this post, I thought the card could use a few extra touches. So I swabbed Wink of Stella on the butterfly and embossed the highland heather layer using the Dot to Dot embossing folder.

All the supplies used…plus the Wink of Stella and the Dot to Dot embossing folder. The Faceted Dots name in English was cut off when I sized the photo. Now you know how to say it in a few other languages too:)

February Card Buffet Invitation

It’s a snowy day in my region. My events for today were rescheduled. But I can still work in the stamp room on designs for the next Card Buffet. Would you like to join us at the Card Buffet? Could be your new experience for the day or an experience you share with someone that may think they are not creative. Sessions are Sunday, February 17th, 1:30pm or Wednesday, January 20th, 1pm or Thursday, February 21st at 9:30am.

Projects will feature Sale-a-bration 2019 products with spring Occasion catalog goodies rounding out the designs. Copies Sale-a-bration 2019 and spring Occasions catalogs will be available for you to take home with you.

Card Buffet details:

Create 10 hand stamped greeting cards with all supplies cut according to the samples provided and tucked into the envelopes. You pick which designs to create and how many of each design from a buffet of options. Create 10 cards with envelopes for $20. Let me do the prep work for you! Add additional kits for $1 per kit.

I can provide adhesives for $5 extra or bring your own. I’ll have new packages of glue dots, dimensionals, liquid glue, tear n tape and SNAIL for cash and carry sale as well.

ICS Blog Hop It’s a Love Thing

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

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…
