Beautiful Jar of Flowers

Hello and welcome! Today I want to share the beautiful Jar Of Flowers bundle with you. This lovely stamp and punch bundle will be available to purchase starting June 3rd when the brand new Stampin’ UP! Annual Catalogue goes live.

I absolutely adore this bundle!

Fresh-picked flowers in canning jar vases are one of the simple joys of summer. This fun Jar of Flowers bundle brings you a version that stays fresh forever!

The pretty floral images in this stamp set are so much fun to colour and isn’t that mason jar super adorable? Can you spot the brand new in-colours too?

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, Sunflowers are one of my favourite flowers so of course I started with them!! This card starts with a Just Jade card base, a layer of Gray Granite cardstock and Whisper White for stamping. That beautiful Just Jade gingham ribbon is from the Flowers For Every Season ribbon combo pack which will also be available June 3rd.

The ‘Just Because’ sentiment is from another great new product that you can look forward to seeing in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. This stamps set is called Lovely You and features many great sentiments in a fun, fresh font.

Mason Jar Shaker Cards

These next 2 cards both feature the Mason Jar Shaker Domes which perfectly coordinate with the Jar punch. Shaker cards are so much fun to make and these little shaker domes make them easy too!!

Love them!!!

The card on the right showcases three of the new In-Colours … Magenta Madness card base, Just Jade cardstock behind a layer of Misty Moonlight Designer Series Paper. I have used a few Flowers for Every Season gems inside the shaker dome and enamel dots atop the sentiment flag.

Shaker card on the left starts with a Misty Moonlight card base, a layer of BumbleBee cardstock and 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon. Inside this shaker dome I enclosed a pinch of multi coloured sequins. The words stamped in the background are from the current Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set … a must have that covers any and all occasions.

If you have fallen in love with these fabulous new 2020-2022 In-Colours and would like to add them all to your crafting collection please check out the new In-Colour Club here. Last day to register to be part of the club is Monday June 1st.

Thank you so much for popping in today. I hope that these cards and products have you excited for the release of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.

Happy Monday … take care, stay safe and be CREATIVE!!

It’s A Birthday Bonanza!

Hello and welcome! It’s a birthday bonanza in my world for the month of May. I have so many friends and family members to celebrate this month πŸ™‚

When the January – June 2020 Mini Catalogue was released I immediately fell in love with the Birthday Bonanza Suite. This fantastic grouping of products are perfect for creating any and all things Birthday!! The colours are bright, images and sentiments are fun, there are even little printed cello bags that could be filled with a birthday treat!

My first product based class from this catalogue featured the fabulous Birthday Bonanza Suite and it was a hit!! So without further adieu let me show you these amazing products πŸ™‚

Birthday Bonanza Suite

Do you know one of the great things about this product suite? You can actually use the Bonanza Dies to cut images right from the Designer Series Paper (DSP). This makes for quick and easy projects as it eliminates the need to stamp and colour.

Let’s Create!

In addition to loving these products I also love the samples that are displayed in the catalogue. The creations in the photo below were all C.A.S.E’d (Copy And Share Everything) from page 34. I made a few little tweaks to make them my own but the overall project design came straight from the catalogue!

Here are a couple more cards that I made using these super fun products. Again the card on the bottom may look familiar, take a look at page 5 of the January – June Mini Catalogue.

Looking for Inspiration

Inspirations can come from many different sources. I encourage you to look at the Stampin’ UP! catalogues as an idea book, there are many great samples that can be recreated, tweaked and made to be your own! Sometimes we just need that little jump start to get the creativity flowing πŸ™‚

I thoroughly enjoy using the Birthday Bonanza Suite in my papercrafting. Sadly these items are on the retiring items list, but I am happy to have them in my personal stash!! I know that this is one set that I will use for years to come.

Thank you for popping in today. I hope that you get to enjoy some crafty time yourself very soon.

Over the Moon

Hello and welcome! In today’s post I want to share with you the super adorable Over the Moon stamp set. I saw these fabulous little cows on the Last Chance list, and immediately pulled the stamp set out and got to creating. I sure am going to miss this set!

The cute little cows are udderly irresistable and the sentiments are priceless!! Over the Moon is definitely on my list of favourites from the current Annual catalogue!

Today’s cards both feature the sweet image of the cow holding the flower. This guy is just perfect for Spring with his little rain boots and the daisy too!! For both cards I have used the same layout sketch. To change them out I just switched up the colours, the Designer Series Paper (DSP) and used a different embossing folder on each.

Over the Moon meets Purple Posy

For this first card I chose a card base of Purple Posy to give it a nice soft pastel feel, perfect for Spring.

The second layer (4 x 5.25″) of cardstock is embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. This product is so versatile, I am very pleased to see that it is carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue in June. Every paper crafter should definitely have this embossing folder in their stash!

I added in a bit of Pretty Peacock for big contrast against the Purple Posy. The perfectly coordinating DSP is found in the Best Dressed paper pack. Of course the card needs a little “bling” so I added three 2019-2021 In-colour faceted dots for that finishing touch.

Deep and Rich Blackberry Bliss

My second card has a bit of a different look to it by simply switching up the key components. I used Blackberry Bliss cardstock in place of the Purple Posy from the first card. For the second layer I used the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder rather than the Brick & Mortar. And I chose different patterns from Best Dressed DSP. I still used the Faceted Dots but just switched up the colour.

I really enjoyed using this sketch layout in designing these cards and will certainly be using it again!

Above the Clouds

Hi and welcome! Today let’s talk about the adorable Above The Clouds Bundle. This bundle consists of the Above The Clouds stamp set and the coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch. Sadly both of these items are being retired and are available until June 2nd OR while supplies last! If either of these items have been on your wish-list now is the time to order!!

I love this bundle! The images and sentiments are so versatile that the possibilities really are endless. From graduation, a job promotion, or a big move to a simple heartfelt “hi friend” this stamp set has you covered. Lift your loved ones up with all kinds of projects featuring the Above The Clouds Bundle.

These are two of the cards that I have designed using this fabulous set. I used the masking technique to get the background in the card on the left. Then I added some heat embossed white clouds and a Happy Birthday greeting from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

In the card on the right I have stamped and punched the hot air balloon image in Rococo Rose and added a little sparkle using the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. This card would make a wonderful wedding card for a happy couple.

See it in Action

Stampin’ UP! has a great video showcasing the Above The Clouds Bundle .. check it out by clicking on the link below, Check out the little tip about how you can stamp your balloon and basket and punch them both out at once. This is a great tip and a time saver too!

Isn’t that a handy tip? It works for many of the builder punches and saves fiddling around with getting all those little pieces lined up in the punch.

Please remember that this set is on the Last Chance product list and is only available until June 2nd or while supplies last. If you would like to order yours today visit my online store and use host code E9CMED2B before you check out!

Thank you for popping in today! I hope that you find a little time in your day to be creative and spread a little sunshine into the world.

Happy Stamping!

What’s the Buzz?

Hello and Welcome!

Have you seen the ever popular Honey Bee Bundle? The products in this bundle are Oh, so sweet!! The adorable bumble bee, hive and floral images are paired perfectly with sentiments of friendship and support.

I have enjoyed using this bundle endless times. Today I want to share just three of the sweet cards that I have created.

Aren’t they fun? I have used the traditional yellow and black colour scheme for these lovely Bumble Bee cards, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black.

I have used the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper on all three cards. This paper was available through Sale-a-Bration 2020 promotion. As this promotion has ended this paper is no longer available. Keep reading to the bottom of this post for a special offer πŸ™‚

A Closer Look

Notice the little yellow hexagons, they are the remaining pieces cut from the little honeycomb die and are attached using mini stampin’ dimensionals. I love that fantastic stamped bee image. And it is even sweeter that it can be cut out with the co-ordinating Detailed Bee Dies.

These stitched circles from the Stitched Shapes dies are perfect size to layer behind both of the fun little bees. To add some extra dimension I popped both up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Usually I refer to these little foam gems as “Bump-its”.

Thirdly, I made this card which uses the stamped beehive image and a fabulous golden bee cut from the Designer Series Paper. Both the first and third cards use the lovely 1/4″ ruched ribbon in Daffodil Delight. I was excited to see that this beautiful ribbon will be returning in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue!

Unlike that pretty yellow ribbon and the fabulous Champagne Rhinestones both the Honey Bee stamp set and the Detailed Bee Dies are on the Last Chance Product list. That means that they will only be available to purchase until June 2nd or while supplies last.

What About that Paper?

Isn’t that Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper just stunning? I love the gold foil that is worked into the different pieces, it adds such a classy touch!

As I mentioned before, this paper pack is no longer available. Because it pairs so seamlessly with the Honey Bee Bundle that I’ve showcased today I have a special offer for you.

The next 8 people to order the Honey Bee Bundle will receive a FREE 6″ x 6″ sampler of this fabulous paper. The sampler will include two double-sided pieces of each, for a total of 12 pieces of 6″x6″ paper.

You can place your order through my online store. When checking out please use the April host code 7VDN6WAN or the current host code in the teal coloured banner at the top of the page.
