Stampin’ Up Accented Blooms Hello

Happy Sunday Ladies ~ I have a beautiful pink and black Stampin’ Up Accented Blooms Hello creation for you today.

Well I got word yesterday that I have electricity at my apartment.  I also talked to my friend who went back yesterday and found the route to take to get through.  They are telling everyone to not come back until Monday morning but I am thinking I will go back today to avoid the crowd.  I know it will take me a little longer but my friends said no one was on 95 South.  I know there are sections further down past where I need to exit 95 that are closed so I am hoping I can get down there without too much traffic.  wish me luck!

I did not have time to make a video for my 10 Minute Creation today so I am sharing the next card on my second round of the Catalog Journey.  I am hoping to make some videos this coming week so I can back on track.  I also hope to be able to do a Facebook Live on Wednesday evening but need to come up with an idea.  I will be thinking about that on my long drive home.  The next stamp set on my second round is the Accented Blooms.  I wanted to use just the stamp set and punch so I decided to make a card that used those along with some dsp and images to add interest.  I began with a 4′ x 5 1/4″ panel of Whisper White.  in the middle on the right I stamped the leaf spray and flowers from Jar of Love and Beautiful Bouquet using the Blushing Bride ink.  I then chose 2 strips of Tropical Escape designer series paper to add to the bottom.  I used some Basic Black baker’s twine and tied it around the middle of the panel.  This panel was then added to a Blushing Bride card base.  The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White using Blushing Bride and then I fussy cut around the edge close to the pink.  A layer was created using Basic Black card stock and the Tailored Tag punch.  The 2 shapes were adhered together then added to the card base using dimensionals.  To finish off the card some Faceted Dots were added.  Here is the completed Stampin’ Up Accented Blooms Hello creation.

Stampin’ Up Soft Sayings Thanks

Good Morning ~ you can use the Stampin’ Up Soft Sayings Thanks card kit to make a quick and easy card.

I heard from my apartment complex yesterday.  They said

At this time, the water retention on property is minimal, with very little, if any, damage sustained at this time.

They also said they expect to to be without power for at least a week.  It is still raining quite heavily down there so I will not be going back for at least a few more days.  I expected this so I am hoping by the time I decide to go back most of the roads are clear and the power is back on.  It will be quite a while before all of the water recedes since the last I heard we had 10 ft in surges.

I have been through all the stamp sets I have on my Catalog Journey.  I am now going to start over. I have gotten a few more sets so I will add them in as I come to them in the catalog.  The first set I have in the catalog is actually a kit.  I have had the Soft Sayings card kit since the last catalog.  I have made many cards using the stamp set as it has some great sentiments in it.  For my card today I used one of the note cards in the kit.  It had a preprinted background so all I had to do was add a sentiment.  I used one of the tags from the kits and stamped the “Thanks” with Powder Pink ink.  I used some of the gold thread and looped it on the back using Tear & Tape to hold the loops in place.  The sentiment was then added with dimensionals that are included in the kit.  Here is the completed Stampin’ Up Soft Sayings Thanks creation.

Thanks for visiting me and I hope I inspired you.  As you can see there were minimal supplies used on my card today.  If you want to start making cards consider one of our kits as all supplies are included.  I also forgot my background paper and “signature R” so I had to make do with what was available.  Have a Super Saturday and isn’t the Stampin’ Up Soft Sayings Thanks creation cute?

 

Serene Garden by Stampin’ Up

Hello Everyone ~ I played with a new stamp set Serene Garden by Stampin’ Up for my creation today.

Well at 7:00 pm last night New Bern lost electricity and Union Point which was downtown had flooded.  This was well before the storm was scheduled to hit land.  They say the electricity could be out for weeks.  They have also changed the storm surge from 9 ft. to 7 – 14 ft.  With that amount of water the roads may be closed for more than a week.  I may be having an extended stay with Jess than I had planned on.  Good thing I brought some craft things to do!

Today is the next video in my Fast & Fabulous video series.  I decided to play with the Serene Garden and Frosted Florals designer series paper both of which I recently received.  Here is the video showing how I created my card.

 

 

 

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

Love What You Do Meets Garden Impressions DSP

Good Morning Everyone ~ are you ready to see another stamp set with designer series paper with my Love What You Do Meets Garden Impressions DSP?

Well sometime today Hurricane Florence is supposed to hit land.  The last I heard it was going to come onshore around Wilmington.  That is about 30 miles south of me so New Bern should get pretty beaten up.  They are talking about storm surges of 9 – 12 feet.  Downtown New Bern is supposed to be under water as it right at sea level.  I am not certain when I will be able to get back.  I am hoping I can get back early next week.  Time will tell when they see the results of the hurricane.  Hopefully we can find an alternate route to get back there.

I played with a stamp set and a designer series paper for my creation today.  My next stamp set on my catalog journey was Love What You Do.  I looked at the stamp set and there was a stamp that looked very similar to one of the patterns in the Garden Impressions DSP.  I decided to use it with the dsp for my card today.  I thought the Navy background with the yellow flowers matched the sprig of flowers in the stamp set.  I stamped the image several times using Soft Sea Foam ink.  I then used a So Saffron marker to color the flowers and the leaves with the Soft Sea Foam marker.  I then cut the panel down and mounted it onto a piece of So Saffron card stock.  I cut a piece of the navy dsp to go across the card front.  I also cut a piece of Night of Navy card stock and used the Subtle embossing folder to emboss it.  The Night of Navy card stock was added to the upper right hand corner of the Whisper White card base.  The strip of dsp was added across the center of the card base.  The colored panel was added using dimensionals.  To finish the card, some rhinestones were added to the card.  Here is the completed Love What You Do Meets Garden Impressions DSP creation.

Monochromatic Pretty Kitty by Stampin’ Up

Hello Ladies ~ A little late but I have a Monochromatic Pretty Kitty by Stampin’ Up creation today.

Sorry this is late.  I left North Carolina about 1 yesterday and did not get to Jess’ until 8.  I was exhausted so opted to go to bed and do the post today.  I left just before the mandatory evacuations so I was ahead of some of the traffic.  There was still a lot of traffic, rain, and accidents to deal with.  I don’t know how long I will be here as time will tell with the storm.  A lot will depend on how much flooding occurs and how many roads are closed.  The main road we use to get down there always floods in big storms.  It can take almost a week to get it open.  We may be checking out alternate routes depending if they are open or not.

Today is my One Color Wonder video series.  This week I had Grapefruit Grove and Pretty Kitty.  Here is the video showing you how I made the Monochromatic Pretty Kitty by Stampin’ Up creation.

 

 

 

Here is the cute card which I will be sending to one of the girls.
