Blogging Friends Blog Hop
Hi Everyone,

It's an exciting time with the release of the new 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog running through December 31st. What's more fun is that it's time for Blogging Friends Blog Hop, so you can hop to many other demonstrators sharing projects they created using the Holiday Catalog products. The projects I'm sharing a couple of projects I created for an embossing paste class I am holding. Enjoy your time hopping along to everyone's blog.

Spooky Cat Bundle with Embossed Embossing Paste.

Santa's Sleigh and a tree with Dazzling Diamonds and
the tree framelit and Embossing Paste. Then die-cut.

A very cool affect.
I really had a bunch of fun with these techniques using Embossing Paste. When you do the powder embossing with it, be sure to put the embossing powder on right away. The paste dries quickly, so you'll want to do that. Also, the embossing paste will bubble up when heated. That's the water content bubbling. It dries great and shiny.

It's finally time to enjoy the great things the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog has to offer. There are wonderful stamp sets and accessories just in time for your holiday needs. Stamping Up! is also launching a new Host Promotion. You can earn a wonderful set, not found in any catalog, for having a qualifying $300.00 party. The Merry Patterns free set can be earned September 1st-October 31st. 

I know that the other Blogging Friends have great projects to share with you, so be sure to check them all out. Be sure to leave a comment and share. I love to chat. 

Happy Hopping,

Wonderful Wednesday Daisy lane Stamp Set

Hi Everyone, I'm so glad you decided to stop in today. It is an exciting time with the anticipation of the new 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. Many demonstrators went to the On-Stage Event where we all go the new catalog and the Daisy Lane Stamp set. I then received the Birch Background stamp in Prize Patrol. I decided to put both sets together and see what I could create.
For this project, I used the Notecards and Envelopes. I think these make the perfect sized project for something quick and easy.Crumb Cakewas used for the Birch Background Stamp. I stamped off for a lighter background. How cute are the daisies? I stamped them onto the card front with Flirty Flamingo. Then I stamped 2 more on scrap whisper white and punched them out with the large Daisy Punch
In the Daisy Lane Bundle, there is a small daisy punch as well. This set will coordinate with the current Daisy Delight Stamp Set
Before we can get too excited about the new …
# Daisy Lane Winner  Announced
Hi Everyone, Welcome to my blog today. As promised, I am posting to announce a winner of my Daisy Lane Stamp set give-away. There has been a chance to win for a couple of weeks now. You can see my original post for the details. I also recently hosted a swap and would like to share some projects using the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating punch. The card above was created by my friend, Bonnie W. I love her color choices.

One of the things I love about hosting a swap that features products in Stampin' Up! catalogs is that there are so many talented stampers and the projects all are so different from each other. Susan C. combined the Garden Lane DSP for a wonderful look.

This card was created by Sandy H. She has participated in my swaps many times. Its amazing that she fussy cut the daisies on either side of the center one. There is a medium daisy punch that coordinates with the center daisy.

I'm so glad that Jenny G. decided to use the Perennial Esse…
Must Have Colors Monday 2017-2019 In-Colors Retiring

One of the many awesome features of Stampin Up products is our color coordination. Everything matches, it’s like Gar-animals. Remember those clothes when we were kids? The monkey tags went with the monkeys, making it easy to dress your kids in matching clothes. Stampin up is like the Gar-animals of paper crafts lol. Stampin Up has 5 Color Collections: Regals, Subtles, Brights, Neutrals and In Colors.  The In Color collection is a little different from our Core Collection. It’s broken down into 2 groups of 5. Each year 5 of these 10 colors go away, and we get 5 new colors. It’s a great way to introduce fresh and trendy colors. The In Color Collections are named by the year they were introduced and the year they will be retired. For example the collection retiring this year is named 2017-2019 In Colors. They are retired with the Annual Catalog officially retiring June 3, 2019 (t…
