Stampin’ Up Hearts Come Home

Hello Stampers ~ The Stampin’ Up Hearts Come Home stamp set and Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover make a great Christmas card.

We had a great time at the pool yesterday.  The girls really enjoyed it.  It was great as there were 2 large pool areas that are no deeper than 2 ft. so it was perfect for Remi.  Zoie played in there a little but she also went over to the deeper pool and stayed at the 3 ft. end.  I spent my time running between the 2 pools.  That was fine as the water was freezing!  I have an appointment this morning for the house and after that we will be going back to the pool again.  I will need a long vacation when Jess gets back!  I hope you are having a great weekend.  I imagine many of you will be having cookouts and family get togethers for Father’s Day.  What ever your plans make sure you are safe and have a great time.

I wanted to play with the new In Colors Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover and show how they will be perfect for a Christmas card.  I went looking for a stamp set and when I saw Hearst Come Home I knew the layout I wanted to use.  Since this card had to be created in 10 Minutes or less all my choices were perfect.  Here is the video showing how I created my Stampin’ Up Hearts Come Home creation.




Is this a fun quick and easy card?  Want to see all the details?  Here is a photo of the creation.

Clean and Simple Masculine

Happy Saturday Everyone ~ my Clean and Simple Masculine creation uses a new designer series paper.

I hope everyone has a great start to your weekend!  I am off to the pool today to take the girls.  They have been dying to go and I figured today would be a good day.  We will go for a few hours in the morning and then come back so that Remi can take her nap.  When she wakes up I am not sure what we will do.  She may want to stamp or even go outside and play on the swing set.  We will find something to do!  She keeps me hopping!

I played with some more of the new designer series paper on my card today.  Are you checking out the designer series paper and making your list?  We will be having a buy 3 get 1 free sale on the designer series paper next month.  Want to see what they look like to see if you want to purchase any?  Check out my Mixed Bag offerings!  In the Bag you get six 4″ x 6″ pieces of designer series paper and 6 coordinating card stock bases.  Here is a way for you to check out the designer series paper before you invest in an entire package.  Perfect way to try before you buy!  My card today used some of the Best Route designer series paper.  I chose to use the Gray Granite grid paper as my background.  I attached it to my Whisper White card base.  Next I use the Blueberry Bushel patterned paper and the Starburst punch to punch a circle.  The Detailed Dragonfly thinlits  were used to cut one of the dragonflies out of Basic Black card stock.  I attached the dragonfly to some vellum and cut around the shape so my dragonfly had some wings.  The Wink of Stella was used to add sparkle to the dragonfly.  The dragonfly was added to the card base using a dimensional.  The sentiment was from Itty Bitty Greetings and stamped with Blueberry Bushel onto a piece of Whisper White.  I flagged both ends and added it to the card base using dimensionals.  The final element  was to add some black faceted dots.  Check out my Clean and Simple Masculine card below.

Quick and Easy Eastern Beauty

Hello Ladies ~ I have a Quick and Easy Eastern Beauty creation for you today.

This will be short and sweet today.  I had the girls last night and did not get everything I wanted to finish done before they got here.  We had to have some play time outside so needless to say it was after they went to bed that I finally could get my post written.  I will let you know how the morning day care run went tomorrow.

I have another Fast & Fabulous creation today.  This one uses some of the new In Colors.  I chose to use Blueberry Bushel and Grapefruit Grove.  This is a great combination.  If you have not signed up for my In Color Club you still have time.  This is the perfect way to get all the In Colors products in an economical way.  Check out the details here.

I used the new colors with Eastern Beauty to show you that you can combine new and old.  I even used one of the framelits to make decorative embellishment for under the sentiment.  Here is the video of my Quick and Easy Eastern Beauty creation.




This is such a quick card and it is so cute.  You could do it in other colors also.  Here is the photo so you can examine all the details.

Tranquil Textures Touches of Texture

Hello Stampers ~ I have a clean and simple Tranquil Textures Touches of Texture creation today.

Yesterday I spent the day in my craft room working on my cards for my blog.  With having the girls this weekend and into next week I want to have all my posts ready to go.  That meant working ahead. I managed to get my cards created through next Tuesday so I am pleased.  I will work on Tuesday’s card tomorrow and I need to  make my video for Friday.  I made the card and totally forgot to record it so I will recreate it tomorrow in a video and then I am set.  I am headed to the yarn store today.  It was good to knit last week and I am looking forward to it again today.

There are some great papers in the new catalog and the pictures do not do it justice.  You really need to see it in person.  That is why my Mixed Bag kits are perfect for checking out the designer series paper.  You can see the kits I have available by checking out my Mixed Bags here.  For my creation today I played with some of the Tranquil Textures designer series paper.  I love the pattern I used on my card.  I have created several cards using this pattern.  For the creation today I used Mint Macaron card base.  Next I cut a piece of the patterned paper and mounted it onto a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.  I used the splatter stamp from the Touches of Texture set and stamped them in the upper left hand portion on the card base using Fresh Fig ink.  A strip of the silver metallic edged ribbon was added down the left hand side of the patterned paper strip.  This panel was added to the right hand side of the card base front.  The image was stamped using Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide ink and then cut out using the Layering Ovals.  The scallop layer is Fresh Fig card stock and was cut using the Layering Ovals also.  My Tranquil Textures Touches of Texture creation is complete.

Sunshine Sayings by Stampin’ Up

Good Morning Stampers ~ are you ready for another One Color Wonder Sunshine Sayings by Stampin’ Up card?

I spent some time yesterday working on some projects that needed finishing up.  I had my Facebook Live cards to finish as well as design my card and make some other samples for ideas for the Facebook Live this week.  I also worked on my card for tomorrow.  Busy day!  Today I do not have any plans so I will work on cards for my blog for the rest of the week.  I have a lot going on right now and I want to work ahead.  I am also preparing for Michaela to be home in a few weeks and I want to have my posts scheduled so I can spend some time with her.

Up today is my One Color Wonder.  This week I had Call Me Clover and Sunshine Sayings.  Every time I think of Call me Clover I have this song going through my mind.  I did take some creative liberty and changed the words up a bit to fit with papercrafting.   As you read this imagine it sung to the tune of Call Me by Nancy Sinatra (yes I am dating myself)!

If you’re feeling confused and puzzled
There’s a service I can render
Tell the one who’s been there also
The problem your having with paper

Call me, don’t be afraid, you can call me
Maybe it’s late, but just call me
Tell me and I’ll help you out!

Ok now that I have that song stuck in your head, I know you want to see my creation.  Here is the video of my Sunshine Sayings by Stampin’ Up creation.



And so you can see that 4 leaf clover really well, here is the photo.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  Did you like my little revamp of an old song?  I am also working on a more popular one.  I would sing it for you but my voice is not what it used to be!  Have a Wonderful Wednesday and what else can you create with Sunshine Sayings by Stampin’ Up?
