Hi Everyone,
Welcome to the Blogging Friends Blog Hop where we share all about Stampin' UP! and all the crafting we love. Each month, several of us come together to share projects inspired by a theme. This month's theme is Recycle. I love this! I decided to share something old with something new for this month. Be sure to hop on over to all the other wonderful blogs today.

For my projects today, I decided to take some cards I received many years ago as swaps for Stampin' Up! conventions.

This first pair of cards is my old project (upper left) and the new project (lower right). I kept the layout of the old project, but changed it for updated colors and designer papers.

If you have been with or have known Stampin' Up! for years, you might remember More Mustard and Baroque Burgundy. I believe these were the colors for this older project.

This updated and refreshed project inspired by the old one uses the Petal Burst Embossing folder, the Tropical Chic Designer Series Paper and Tranquil Tide and Blushing Bride Cardstocks. I also added pearls for the center of the flowers. 

For the next pair of projects, I used the old project (upper left) as my inspiration for my new project (lower right). What caught my eye in the original project was the framelit. It was called the Top Note Die. Framelit wasn't being used yet in 2011-2012. 

For the new project. I kept the "Top Note" idea by using the new Stitched Seasons Framelits that are part of the Color Your Season Promotion. The stamps also come from this suite of products with the Color Your Season Stamp set available for purchase for a limited time. I absolutely love the richness of the Mossy Meadow and Mango Melody Cardstocks. The Brick Wall Embossing folder adds more texture. I also used the new Water Color Pencils that have more wonderful colors. 

Today begins the Color your Season promotion. Customers can purchase the stamp set, framelits, and new water color pencils during August until supplies last. Here are more projects created by Stampin' Up! employees.

I hope you have enjoyed your stop today for the Blogging Friends Blog hop. Simply click below to hop on over to other wonderful shares today.

Happy Stampin'

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…
