  Be sure and scroll down for the stamping tip!

   I don’t normally go for the cute-sy stuff, but OMG…have you ever seen such cute and adorable animals…and the PAPER…I just can’t get enough of it! If my kids were still little, all of them and all of their friends would’ve been getting Animal Expedition cards for their birthdays this year. And how cute would favors and banners be made out of this suite?! But, alas, my kids are grown and we don’t have grandbabies…yet…I guess I’ll have to hang onto some of these cards for the future…hopefully, not too distant future!

    These little guys were so fun to color with the Stampin’ Blends. So. Much. Fun. Love, love this suite!

  Stamping tip! 

    For each of the animals, after adhering adhesive sheets to the card stock, I cut the colored image out plus two more plain shapes. All with adhesive sheets on the back. Then I adhered them on top of each other easily. This gives these cute little critters a little more dimension.

     So many stamp sets and so little time! I seriously hope we get to stamp when we go to heaven, don’t you?! In the meantime we have to work with real time. These cards did not take as much time as they may look. The details of this first set, appropriately titled “Detailed Love” has so many beautiful…well, details. These cards only show a minimum of the stamps and products in these suites.

You can’t see it in the picture, but for the top right card above I used the Subtle embossing folder. It added just the right amount of texture.

I do most of my coloring while “watching” tv with my hubby. Then it’s just a matter of putting them together. As you can see, I was on a little purple kick here. I just LOVE the new purples!

     Do you have the same problem as me…leftover and unfinished card kits and unused card parts clogging up the shelves and drawers of your craft room or craft space? You can’t just throw them away, but now I can’t remember what the design was originally…so there they sit, collecting dust. Well, Saturday, I decided to do something with them, either make them with whatever design came to mind or disassemble the kits and put the pieces back to where they originally came from.

     This collage has about half of the cards I put together on Saturday. Some of the products are retired. All the Designer Series Paper  is retired and some of the stamp sets are not available from Stampin’ Up! any longer.

     I think Stampin’ Up’s card kits keep getting better and better. As always, pictures never quite capture the beauty of the cards…well, at least not MY photographs. These really are pretty! You get FIVE of each of these four designs, so 20 cards.  Plus when you are done you have a stamp set and Stampin’ Spot ink pad to keep!

    Every one had a choice of one of the top two cards as one of their selections at my card class this month.

    These are the other cards I offered, lots of fun new products! I especially love the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and card.

    Most of my uplines team live out of her area, so she had never held a team event before. She just held her first Team only event a few weeks ago. It was SO FUN!!! You would’ve loved it!! Here’s some photos of the projects we did. The red box, in the lower right two photos, hold color inspiration for us…love this gift! I don’t know if you can see it but there’s a lemonade packet in the cup with a lemon! I LOVE it, it’s so cute!!

These are most of the swaps. Aren’t they awesome! They’re all so cute!!

    One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is meeting other crafty women and becoming friends.  Of course we have paper crafting in common, which makes for an instant connection sometimes. The community of women my upline has created and my growing community of paper crafters, isn’t just about paper crafting.  It’s about supportive and caring relationships. Recently my husband was diagnosed with lymphoma and the love and concern we continue to receive from the Demonstrator community (most of which I haven’t met face to face), not to mention long-time friends and family, was so genuine and heart warming. We received a ton of cards with sweet notes of encouragement, love and concern. Along with our long term friends and family, many prayers were and are being said for my husband. I’m so very grateful for all the new friendships I have through my hobby and business of stamping, they enrich my life further!

   I am happy to report, my husbands cancer is so slow moving, they don’t have to treat it at this point. In fact the risk of further cancer that goes with treatment is higher than the risk of this cancer itself!! Wow, never considered him not having to be treated. Further more, he will have a CT scan approximately every 6 months for the rest of his life. The Doctor didn’t want to wait 6 months for the first scan and did one at 3 months…well…again, not at all expecting it, my husbands cancer has shrunk!!!!!!! No treatment and it has shrunk…personally, I think it’s a God-thing! We did change our diet according to some medical studies, to a vegan plan and I believe this has a lot to do with it too. We anticipate his diabetes being under better control and being able to go off some or even all of the meds he takes because of the diabetes. I’m thinking God allowed Brian to have cancer…to save his life!

    Thank you to all of you that have been praying for my husband and all your encouragement and love.

    What a fun and flashy suite of products! Even, more fun is that it coordinates with June’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. I hope we’ll see Paper Pumpkin coordinating with catalog products again in the future.

WMBB Collage

     To make the word, “Wish” sturdy on the top card, I adhered 3 of the die cuts together. I put the adhesive sheets onto Lovely Lipstick card stock then cut the dies out. This made it really easy to adhere them together. This sturdiness will help it get through the mail in better shape. It also gives added dimension to the card. I used the mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the word up and adhere it to the card.

    The word “Wish” on the bottom right card was stamped with Versa Mark then heat embossed with the new In-Color, Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Emboss powder. After it cooled for a minute, I used the dotted word stamp to to apply versa mark and use Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder, then heat embossed it. In person, it is much more obvious. The candle embellishment is new to the catalog as well.

WMPP Collage

      The above collage is June’s Paper Pumpkin kit with a list of the catalog’s coordinating products.  I pretty much stuck to the instructions with these first two cards. I’m thinking I will probably change it up a bit when I do the remaining cards.

    This suite of gorgeous products is easily one of my favorites to play with! I was asked to make some samples for my upline’s team event, most of these were made for that event.

WMMswyl Collage

     The flowers are really easy to fussy cut out of this gorgeous DSP. I used framelits from the Sweet Cake set and the Natures Roots set for all the black leaves on two of the cards. It’s hard to see in the picture but the white bricks are with the Shimmery White Embossing Paste. It’s so much prettier in person. And the new Glitter Enamel Dots…divine colors…love ’em!
