Wonderful Wednesday Weekly Stamp Class

Hi Everyone,
Welcome my Wonderful Wednesday post where I share projects from my weekly stamping class. This week I focused on Sale-A-Bration. We are in the best time of the year for stamping with free products with purchases. Who doesn't love free stamps!? This project pictured by demonstrator, Brian King inspired me to focus on this Sale-A-Bration theme. 
Blossoming Basket Stamp setand the Basket Weave Embossing folder is free with a minimum $100 order. The embossing folder is one of the 3-D impressions folders. This creates a deep impression as you can see from the project above. The flower from Brian's card came from the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper which is free with a minimum $50 order.

Here are the other projects we created at class featuring the Blossoming Basket stamp set and embossing folder.

It's all about the layers for these projects. I love the richness of both by coloring the flowers with deep colors. T…
Memories & More Mondays
Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Memories & More Mondays where I share a little bit of my love for memory keeping and stamping. I love that Stampin' Up! has dedicated a line of products for crafters who love to scrapbook and keep memories while at the same time as offering the same products for stampers. That's exactly what Memories & More is about. 
For today's layout, I used Pacific Point card stock as my base. My daughter's dress made that choice really easy. From there I decided to use the Petal Passion Memories & More Card packto add the embellishments. 

On my layout, I added a bit of splatter with Pacific Point ink and the Timeless Textures stamp set.  I also added a strip of DSP from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper set that coordinates with the Petal Palette Suite from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog. 

I absolutely love this suite of products from the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating framelits, to the DSP a…

Wonderful Wednesday
Weekly Class - Petal Palette

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for joining me today. I wanted to share about my weekly stamping class that I have on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I try to focus on a stamp set or papers and accessories so that my participants can see the variety of products for value. This week I focused on the Petal Palette Suite in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog. This suite is the most popular of all of the products in this limited catalog.
My projects this week were inspired by other demonstrators. Jan Musselman inspired my project above. I love the insert where she lightly stamped the beautiful flowers and then added the greeting over top. I feel the inside of your card is just as important as the outside.

The Petal Passion Memories and More Card Kit is also a stamping favorite! These cards are so beautiful and add to your stamping and memories with little effort. The cards and stamp set coordinate perfectly. Check out this video to see all the wonderf…

Finding Inspiration Friday  Card Challenge & Prize Patrol Hi Everyone,
Welcome to another Finding Inspiration Friday. Once a month I put out a card challenge and hope that many stampers participate and design a card based on the template. I love the possibilities with this card template this month. I think of Washi Tape, Designer Series paper, and Ribbon for this.
My favorite time in stamping is finding that creative inspiration. I have dedicated Fridays as my Finding Inspiration time from creating videos of my inspiration to offering design layout challenges to get my friends inspired to stamp. Today's challenge is so fun! I love this template and hope that you do too. You have an opportunity to create, submit, and win a Stampin' Up! prize.

Finding Inspiration Friday
Loving that Lemon Lime Twist

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Finding Inspiration Friday post where I share projects from products that inspire me to stamp. A couple of projects I worked on recently was a Thank You card for several stamping friends as well as a variety of cards that I put into an acetate box as another gift. One of the In-Colors available for 2017-2019 is Lemon Lime Twist. This color is so vivid and just makes you smile. 

For this dragonfly thank you card, I used Lemon Lime Twist as the base and the color for the dragonfly. Soft Suede is the coordinating color for this card with the wonderful Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP. Dragonfly Dreams is one of the most popular stamp set and framelit sets. The saying came from the Hanging Garden stamp set found in the Occasion's Catalog.
One wow about this bundle is the Thinlits and Framelits. The dragonflies are so detailed and you can do so many things. Demonstrator Dawn Griffith has a great video on a card …
Blogging Friends Seeing Red Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,
Thank you so much for visiting the Blogging Friends Blog Hop today. We are several Stampin' Up! demonstrators who love to create, share, and have fun. This month we are focusing on the theme of RED because Valentine's Day is right around the corner. My projects today include a Valentine's Card and a Birthday Card. I hope you enjoy the time you spend visiting our blogs.

Who doesn't love getting a card full of bling and happiness. I used the red and silver glimmer papers, Real Red card stock, and the Pop of Pink DSP.

Surprise! It is so fun to have a little pop-up to make someone's day. Using the smaller balloon from the Balloon Bouquet punch, these three are super cute. The Happy Birthday came out of the  Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set.

No you didn't! Well yes I did. Isn't this panda love card the cutest thing ever? I love the boldness of the Petal Passion DSP with the red card stock base. The hearts came fr…
