Stampin’ Up Oh So Eclectic in Petal Pink

Happy Wednesday Stampers ~ I have the Stampin’ Up Oh So Eclectic in Petal Pink creation to share with you today.

Well I did not get good news yesterday.  I have to have the lid to the septic tank replaced.  There were too many cracks for the guy to feel comfortable repairing it.  I was not happy to hear it but at least there are no more hurdles to jump over.  This has been very stressful for me and will be glad when it is all over!  I still have a lot of packing to do.  I managed to get another stamp set completed for my Catalog Journey.  I will do some more packing today and hopefully get another stamp set completed.  One step at a time!

Today is my One Color Wonder video creation.  This week I had Oh So Eclectic and Petal Pink.  AS you know Petal Pink is not one of my favorite colors.  I managed to get a card made that is not too bad.  Here is my Stampin’ Up Oh So Eclectic in Petal Pink creation.



Petal Pink does not photograph very well so here is a photo of the creation so you can see it better.

Daisy Delight and Navy Gingham Check

Hello Stampers ~ I used the Daisy Delight set again and created this Daisy Delight and Navy Gingham Check.

Well Jess came over last night.  We had a good 2 hours of work and we got a lot accomplished.  The back of my car is loaded with stuff I need to donate today.  I have someone coming to the house this morning and I will go out after that and drop off all the stuff.  It won’t take me long and then I will be back and taking some time to play.  I did not get any time yesterday so I want to do it today.  We did start packing up the stamp room yesterday.  There is some more I can do in there and I want to finish up upstairs as there is a little left up there to do.  I want to take the next 2 days and finish up the last of my commitments and Catalog Journey and then I can pack it all up until I get to the apartment.  I did get some news yesterday I was not expecting.  I thought the movers were delivering my things to the apartment on the 27th when I get the keys.  They told me today that they have scheduled for sometime between the 27th and the 1st of September.  It will be an interesting week with no furniture or bed.  My friend says there are plenty of people who can help me out.  Did change the way I was planning on packing my car.  Stay turned for further developments.

Our challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge this time.




I loved these colors together and when I saw them I immediately thought of my favorite stamp set ~ Daisy Delight.  I know I used that set yesterday so you are lucky and get 2 ideas in a row.  I stamped my daisies ~ 3 of each color ~ and punched them out.  I stamped the leaves with Granny Apple Green and cut them out.  I used a piece of Granny Apple Green card stock and the Layered Leaves embossing folder to create the background.  I added my Night of Navy gingham ribbon (which is very close to the Blueberry Bushel ink on the daisy) and attached the embossed panel.  My flowers were added with glue dots and the leaves were tucked underneath with glue dots.  I tied a bow and added it with glue dots.  To finish off my card, I added some clear faceted gems to the center of the daisies.  Here is my completed Daisy Delight and Navy Gingham Check creation.

Make sure you head on over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge blog  to check out what the other ladies on the team created using these colors.  I am sure there is a lot of inspiration for you.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  Made a lot of phone calls yesterday canceling services and turning off electricity as well as made a hotel reservation for the Sunday until I can get into the apartment.  I am a little worried my car may not hold all my things that I have to take myself lol.  Wish me luck with the packing.  Have a Terrific Tuesday and do you think my Daisy Delight and Navy Gingham Check fits the color challenge?


Daisy Delight in Lemon Lime Twist

Happy Monday Everyone ~ I have a fun Daisy Delight in Lemon Lime Twist creation for you today.

I changed my plans for yesterday.  It was not as hot as it normally has been so I decided to week my flower bed.  I started with the largest one and that is the only one I got done.  I had to stop and come in as it was a lot hotter than I thought it was.  It is suppsed to rain today so I might be able to get out there and do another one this evening.  We’ll see.  I have an appointment up the road and when I get back I will work in my craft room making some more cards for my Catalog Journey.  I have to finish my sets this week week as I need to pack up my craft room.  I also need to get my donations delivered this week as well as finish packing.  I will have a busy week!

For my Catalog Journey the next set was Daisy Delight.  The Daisy Delight set is one of my favorite sets.  There is another demo, Bronwyn Eastley, who posted a lot of color combinations for daisies when the set first came out.  I decided to use one of her color combos for my daisy today.  Here is the one I chose to use.












I decided to use the Lemon Lime Twist and Fresh Fig for the daisy.  I punched 3 of the daisies out of Lemon Lime Twist.  The sponge dauber was used with Fresh Fig ink to color the center.  The flowers were then layered using glue dots.  A clear faceted gem was added to the center.  For my card base I used Whisper White and embossed the front with the Polka Dot Basics embossing folder.  A strip of the Tranquil Textures designer series paper was added to a strip of Fresh Fig card stock and then was added to the card front using Tear & Tape.  My flower was then added with glue dots.  To finish my card I stamped the sentiment from Postcard Pals with Lemon Lime Twist ink and mounted it onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock.  The sentiment was added to the card front using dimensionals.  Here is my clean and simple Daisy Delight in Lemon Lime Twist.

Animal Outing Hello

Hello Ladies ~ I made an Animal Outing Hello creation to send to the girls.

Well the septic guy came out yesterday.  He is coming back tomorrow with his helper to see if we can repair the lid or if he will have to replace it.  I am crossing my fingers he can repair it as the price difference is about $ 1200.  Cross your fingers for me so that he can repair it.

Yesterday I was very busy.  I had a workshop and after the workshop I started packing up more of the kitchen.  I have only 2 cabinets left and 2 drawers which all have the things I will used until the movers come.  I ran out of small boxes or I would have finished the packing.  I will pick them up tomorrow so I can finish up the packing in the kitchen.  I also have my final hair appointment with my lady here.  I have been with her for almost 20 years.  She understands my hair well.  I will be on the lookout for a new person when I move.  I am also going to try and play in my craft room as I need to make some cards and pack some In Color kits up to mail out tomorrow.  Busy day ahead again.

Today I have another 10 Minute Creation.  This one is a little longer than 10 minutes.  The coloring of the animals took a while as well as determining what size to cut my squares.  I also have some hints for coloring with the blender pen in the video.  Here is the video showing how I made my Animal Outing Hello creation.




Here is the photo of the card so you can see all the details.

Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic with Tropical Escape

Hello Stampers ~ wait until you see my Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic with Tropical Escape creation!

Well I hit a snag with the septic tank.  My guy will not replace or repair the top.  They will only put in a new septic system and tie into the existing lines.  This is a very expensive fix that is not necessary so not going that route.  The guy my agent found came out but did not bring a hook to open the tank so nothing from him.  I called a friend of mine who’s husband used to be a plumber and I talked to him.  He gave me the name of a guy whom I called and he is coming out to look at the top.  He said he just replaced the top for a guy locally who wanted to sell his house and had the same issue.  The new guy is supposed to come out either tomorrow or Monday and look at the tank.  Please, please, please cross your fingers for me.  This is the last hurdle that I need to jump over.  If I cannot get it taken care of I cannot sell the house until it passes.

I played with the Tropical Chic bundle again.  This time I used the stamps to stamp the flower a couple of times and a couple of the leaves.  I used the framelits to cut it out.  Then I used the leaf window framelit and cut out one from Mossy Meadow.  I took a piece of the Tropical Escape designer series paper and put behind the window.  I attached this panel to the Whisper White layer.  The 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon was added to the bottom.  This panel was then attached to the Blushing Bride card base.  The leaves and flowers were added using glue dots and dimensionals.  I used a piece of the burlap ribbon to tie a knot around the ribbon.  My Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic with Tropical Escape creation is complete!
