Wonderful Wednesday Weekly Class Hi Everyone, We've made it to the halfway mark of the week. It's time to share my Weekly class projects. On Monday I shared my Memories & More projects and today I'm sharing the Darling Label Punch Box that is wonderful! Both of my projects were inspired by others. It's great to be able to get inspiration from other great designers. I C.A.S.E'd this project from Peggy Noe. Her card was so cute! I really like how the Lovely Floral Dynamic Embossing folder is shown so well by having the Darling Label punch barely covering. Peggy stamped the punch several times with green cardstock and Grapefruit Grove. She then cut the flowers out and the leaves. I decided to use the leaves thinlits from the Petals and More Thinlits. I then cut off pieces to use as the greenery. The other little trick is that I took some pearls and my Stampin' Blend and colored the pearls to match the Grapefruit Grove color scheme.  This second card for class was C…

Time to Stamp Tuesday with Paper Players Color Sketch #401
Hi Everyone, Welcome back to my Time to Stamp Tuesday blog. Today I'm excited to share my project inspired by the Paper Players color challenge for this week. This color challenge was designed by Joanne. If you haven't seen the new In-Colors for 2018-2020, you are in for a treat. 

My project highlights all three of the new In-Colors for the design challenge. I have been creating a lot of projects using Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green, so adding Highland Heather is fun. This is also the first time I'm using the Hand Delivered Hostess set in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. This set is only available for a minimum party and rewards to the hostess.  The balloon bouquet was created by stamping a second balloon bouquet to get the overflow of balloons. I also colored my images with the classic ink pads and an aqua painter. I find that coloring directly with the Stampin Write markers can be too deep or harsh, so I l…

Memories & More Monday
Hi Everyone, Welcome to the beginning of the week and joining me for Memories & More Monday. Today it's all about the Stampin' Up! Memories & More Card sets. I've blogged before about how I really never got into scrapbook crafting very well. I had such a hard time with layouts and organization. Stampin' Up! then paired with Becky Higgins and came out with Project Life. Well I was hooked. I could create quick and easy memory books, but what is more exciting now is the Memories & More Card sets because I can combine the best of both worlds memory keeping and card making together. 


The projects I'm sharing today are using the Colorful Seasons Memories & More Pack and the new Memories & More Small Note Cards with Envelopes. These are the perfect sized note cards. The small note cards measure 3" x 4". For my fall card above, I simply used the 3" x " fall card and cut out a header from another card as my say…

Stamp Something Saturday CTS #280 Sketch Hi Everyone,
Thanks for stopping in today on this stamping Saturday. Today I wanted to share a project I created for the Case This Sketch Challenge (CTS). Each week a template is posted and you can submit your card that was inspired by the sketch. CTS is all about clean and simple stamping. I really like the templates they display. This week, Chrissy Larson designed CTS #280. This sketch was a fun one to create with. For my project, I used the new Free Cake Stamp set and the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper. I love the bright colors with Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green. 
Something special is coming to customers in August. It's a new set of Water Color Pencils. They reflect some of the new colors as well as more variety. I can't wait until you are able to get them. Stampin' Up! has the best quality of water color pencils. For the cake, I began with the Stampin' Blends using the light colors of Lovely Lipstick and Granny App…

Finding Inspiration Friday
Mini Thank You Notes
Hi Everyone, Thanks for stopping in today for my Finding Inspiration Friday Blog. Today is a fun day to say "Thanks" to my stamping friends. I was inspired by some Garden Impressions DSP scallop circles that I had laying around. In one of my stamping classes, we used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a circle for our project. That left these pieces as scraps. Well there is no such thing as scraps in stamping. I also have been stamping using the new In-Colors and have gotten quite a bit of odd sized pieces. 3" x 3" note cards are the perfect little "Thank You" to pop into a customer's bag.  This cute note card is made with Pineapple Punch cardstock and the Garden Impressions DSP scallop circle. The saying is from the Hostess Set Very Vintage. This is a great stamp set! A little Artisan Pearls adds a great feature to the note card. This project uses Grapefruit Grove as the base of the card. This scallop…

Wonderful Wednesday Weekly Class Go Go Glossy Hi Everyone, Welcome back to my Wonderful Wednesday Blog. Each Wednesday, I share the projects that my customers create at class. This week it's all about Glossy Cardstock. There are so many techniques you can do with glossy cardstock. I usually have 3 projects each week, but since glossy cardstock is so versatile, I added a 4th project. This first project is a simple stamp onto the glossy cardstock technique. There is nothing fancy, but you have to be careful. Stamps can easily slide on the glossy cardstock since it's so smooth. I used the Healing Hugs stamp set along with with the new Gray Granite and Petal Pink as my coloring palette.  Another fun thing to do with glossy cardstock is to use your sponge brayer to create a beautiful background to your project. This card was inspired by a recent card I received from Judy Klock. Project # 3 is a great technique using the Brusho Crystal Colours to create this cloud like background. For thi…

Time to Stamp Tuesday Global Design Project #146 Hi Everyone,  Welcome to my Time to Stamp Tuesday today. I am sharing a project I created for the Global Design Project challenge. These challenges go love each week. You can design your own projects using the design template and send in your project so it can be posted on their blog. It's a great way to get out your supplies and create. For this layout, I decided to use A Good Day stamp set. I haven't used this one yet and this challenge was perfect for the layout. The little characters are so cute. It was so easy too with the coordinating scallop punches. If you've visited my blog before, you know I love the new Dotted Ribbon! I can't seem to stop using it as well as the Garden Impressions DSP stack. I've been using the more bold colored designs, but on my project today, I used the softer side of the DSP for this baby card. If you haven't had a chance to try out a design challenge, why not try it today? See the othe…
