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:)

Life’s too short to say No to Cake!

Life’s too short to say No to Cake! I agree! A slice from Carl’s Cakes makes the day better. I love the mocha flavor. Mom and I get a cake at every chance. I’ll be bringing apricot hazelnut to celebrate her birthday the next time I visit.

I designed the flirty flamingo greeting card version above to share at the February Card Buffet. My sister baked a cake for her husband so I designed the balmy blue and silver foil version and got it in the mail quick!

Would you like to stamp a few of these cards at the Card Buffet? The session is Thursday, February 21st, 9:30am. Full details are in this blog post.

Please click the contact button to RSVP so I will prepare kits for you. I’ll reply back with confirmation that I received your RSVP with a few more details.

Hope to stamp with you on Thursday!

Double Points during Double Digit Polar Vortex Wind Chills

7 2017onlineshopperbanner-001

It’s a little breezy where I live and a little cold with wind chills in the negative double digits. Mail delivery has been suspended, senior living sessions have been rescheduled and the oven is being used for meals in an effort to heat the surroundings. Yesterday was Italian for dinner and today was espresso #Yumbutter cookies. I am debating a new recipe for overnight rye rolls and soup for tomorrow.

While we are trapped inside due to the double digit polar vortex wind chills, I hope you are enjoying our favorite hobby, paper crafting of course! As you gaze over the pillowy snow out your stamp space window, are you dreaming about new stamp images, new Big Shot accessories and Sale-a-bration freebies? If so, take advantage of earning Double Online Shopper Reward Points through February 3rd for placing online orders at my online store.

Here is the Online Shopper Reward tracker sheet for you to track your orders.
