I love that ad on TV where the two women are talking about her new blue suede couch and she says “I had to have it!”  and then the burglars are in the living room in the dark saying “had to have it!”.  It’s kinda funny, the lady uses her credit card to get her dream couch and the burglars use a crow bar lol.  Well that’s how I feel about this stamp set!  As soon as I saw it in the new cattie, I was like “I have to have it!!!”  Hopefully, no one is gonna break into my house with a crowbar and steal it 😉

Creative Tips:

  1. I didn’t have Powder Pink ribbon on hand when I started this card but I wanted a ribbon-y embellishment to go behind my teepee.  I just used a narrow strip of card stock that I pulled back and forth with my bone folder to bust up the fibers and make it soft and easily looped.  I also used a small piece that was left on the left side under my card front to give another pop of pink.
  2. I absolutely love the tiny images in this set for borders and backgrounds.  I stamped them on a tiny strip of whisper white, it adds a nice bit of interest to the card front.
  3. There are so many fun things you can do with this teepee, I can’t wait to make more teepee projects!

This stamp set and embossing folder along with these colors just make me happy pants!!  I love the bright cheerful colors, they make me feel like spring may actually be coming even though we just had a snow storm in Colorado this week lol!

Creative Tips:

  1. The circle image is stamped in several colors (Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Berry Burst).  It is stamped full strength and then stamped off once and twice.  It gives a nice layer of dimension to have all these different colors popping off the card.
  2. The “Happy” is stamped first in Lemon Lime Twist on Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and then embossed with the embossing folder.  I love the look of this.
  3. Splatter and rhinestones and the new beautiful glitter enamel dots add the finishing touch.

All products depicted are not yet available, they will ALL be available on June 1, 2017!!!  Whoop!!!

Just for you….

I have been thinking about the “So Detailed” Thinlits for a few days.  I wanted to make something pretty with them and this cute card popped into my brain.  It was quick & easy which is right in my wheelhouse lately.  There don’t seem to be enough minutes in my day to play in my craft room as much as I would like.

This card came together super fast!  Watercolor paper is cut with the die image and watercolored randomly in Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is stamped in Watermelon Wonder and fussy cut.  The large flower image from the coordinating “So in Love” stamp set is stamped on Whisper White in Daffodil Delight.  The die cut is stapled over the flowers and the sentiment is popped up on top with a strand of burlap ribbon twisted underneath.  Final touches are the Sprinkles Embellishments.

I hope you are able to carve a few minutes to create into your day!

Today I have a different take on love and the Sending Love Suite.  I combined the images and dies from the love suite with the colors of the Cupcakes & Carousels Suite.  I think the results are sweet and romantic and a little different than your typical Valentines colors.  Yum!

This project can be as simple or as complicated as you feel like making it 🙂

This little beauty is up in my craft room & I just love gazing at it!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 81

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dani Dziama’s blog.  As always, we have some amazeballs inspiration to share today 🙂

I (just barely) returned home from a Stamping & Scrapbooking Cruise in the Caribbean.  It was soooooo much fun!  The ship was beautiful, the ports were great, time spent with friends old and new was priceless!  One of the fun swaps I participated in was an 8″ x 8″ recipe card swap.   I not only received some amazing projects but some absolutely yummy recipes 🙂

This was my recipe card swap.  This truly is the best peach cobbler evah and I combined the Everyday Jars Framelits and the Jar of Love stamp set with the Pop of Pink DSP to make my cute recipe card.

The 8″ x 8″ inch base is Basic Black cardstock, strips of Pop of Pink designs and gold foil are added next.  The recipe is printed out and stapled to the front of the recipe card and Pop of Pink Washi Tape is added for interest.  The most difficult part of the page is the “Jar of Love” made into a little shaker.  The full jar is die cut in black and in transparency.  The jar is also stamped on Thick Whisper White in Archival Black and die cut.  On this jar, the center is also die cut out.  The transparency jar is adhered to the stamped and die cut jar on the inside to create a clear window.  Foam adhesive strips are added underneath.  Once the foam is on, punched hearts in Melon Mambo are put “inside the jar” along with sequins from the Metallics Assortment.  The back of the jar is sealed with the full black die cut jar.  A small tag is stamped and die cut using the Homemade for You stamp set, it’s attached with Melon Mambo thick twine.  The finished jar is adhered to recipe front with Gold Thread swirled underneath.

It’s definitely a time for peace, the holidays are coming and it is truly a time of year to set aside our differences and love one another 🙂

I am totally in love with the Star of Light stamp set and coordinating Starlight Thinlits.  I think the star image is so delicate and lovely!

This card features Marina Mist and Sahara Sand ink.  The swoosh is stamped in Marina Mist on the card front and accented with Sahara Sand stars.  The main image is stamped in Marina Mist and die cut with the large star cut out.  Another piece of Sahara Sand is die cut and layered behind the main star.  “Peace” is die cut from Marina Mist and stapled to the card front.  Add ons are gold thread, rhinestones and gold foil stars.

It was a perfect fall day here in Colorado,  the leaves are turning and Facebook is full of everyone’s lovely pics of the leaves.  Here in my stamp room we are moving on to Christmas, I can hardly believe it!!! Honestly, the holidays are fast upon us and before we know it 2017 will be here!  This time of year seems to fly by at super speed!

Today I am sharing a beautiful holiday card featuring the Christmas Pines stamp set and the coordinating Pretty Pines die set.  I am obsessed with these delicate and lovely dies!

The base of the card starts with Whisper White embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  The sentiment is gold embossed on vellum and die cut with a circle die.   The branches are cut in Wild Wasabi and Garden Green, the pinecones are die cut in Early Espresso and the sweet bow is die cut in Cherry Cobbler.  All the parts are layered onto the card front over gold thread and stapled down.  Final touches are rhinestones and gold metallic enamel shapes.
