Party Wishes…

I have a cute and easy project for you today using an upcoming set from the Occasions Catalog:  Party Wishes.  I think I have trouble with super simple lol!  I just didn’t love this card as I was making it, it felt naked or something.  The struggle is real!  I’ve fallen for it now that it’s complete and I’m sharing it with you 🙂

I used the Party Wishes stamp set and the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.  The solid cake was stamped in Mint Macaron and then cut out.  The sentiment was stamped on a piece of vellum and cut to the same size as my DSP.  I then lined the cake up under the vellum and adhered it to the DSP using dimensionals.   The vellum was stapled on top, slightly offset.  A piece of Melon Mambo was added along with small banners at the top.  A few other touches and voila…a cute birthday card for someone!  Embellishing with staples is a great way to not only secure your card elements but add dimension to it as well.  They have become one of my favorite accessories and you will see them often in my creations.  They are a “must have” item in my book!

I am still in Pensacola at Kimberly’s which means I am getting to use her super cute photo backdrop.  Love, love, love!  We are working on something big right now…stay tuned for more info!  I promise you won’t be disappointed 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I’ve inspired you to create something pretty today.

P. S. Again, the stamp set and DSP are not part of the product showcase below since they are not yet available for order.  They will be available on January 5, 2016 or for pre-order for demonstrators only on December 3, 2015.


Birthday Blooms!

I am soooo excited about the new Occasions Catalog that is being released by Stampin’ Up in January!  I am still enjoying every second of the Holiday Catalog but I cannot lie, I do love new goodies 🙂  This new catalog features lots of fun new stamps and coordinating dies and some really fun new accessories….what’s not to get excited about I ask?

Here is a sneaky peak of a tag I made with a new stamp set and Designer Series Paper that will be available on January 5, 2016.  Happy, happy new year to us 🙂

I am sure you have not noticed that I am obsessed with watercolor, the big flower image in the Birthday Blooms set is absolutely PERFECT for watercoloring.  I white embossed the image on watercolor paper and then used Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow re-inkers to watercolor.  It is lovely!  Super easy to pop on the sentiment embossed on vellum and staple everything to a tag cut out of the Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper.

Do you want these beauties right now???  As a demonstrator, we can pre-order the Occasions Catalog items on December 3rd!!  Contact me for more information.
