     I love making favors…there are so many possibilities. I used the 5 new In-Colors for my Catalog Launch Party recently. Then I used 3 of them again for my Card Buffet Class. I love these bright cheerful colors!

Here’s a peek at the fun we had Wednesday night at my Catalog Launch Party!

     Most of the time when you are making treat projects, it’s a mass production process. Below you can see how I work when mass producing. It takes less time to do the same task repeatedly until you are finished with it, rather than going back and forth for all the elements of the projects.

     I hope you ladies that came to my events, enjoyed your treats!

      This bundled set is already one of my favorites…I just want to sit on those benches with those flower filled gardens surrounding me. I can also imagine a cup of coffee…or a glass of wine in my hand. Maybe by myself for some quiet moments or with my hubby for some relaxation…

    Scroll down if you want to see the bench…swing bench…I sit on occasionally in my back yard!

     You can’t really see it in the picture but the wood bench has more depth than the rest of the elements on this card. Below is a simple tutorial, so you can try this out and see what you think. The “wrought iron” bench is heat embossed…with Stampin’ Up!’s new Black Embossing Powder…boy am I glad to have that back!

     I was selective in taking pictures, mostly in our backyard. Our gardens are in bad need of some love. I haven’t touched it since Fall of 2016. I was out all last year with a back injury that ended in surgery last August. It wasn’t until just a couple weeks ago that I thought I might be able to garden again…maybe even this summer! My husband has had frozen shoulder for about the same period of time as my back. Needless to say, our garden could use some sprucing up but there are still some really pretty things growing as you can see. And there is my arbor swing…I love sitting there on a warm summer night.

Paper Pumpkin MAY18

     Being a lover of all things floral, it’s out of my comfort zone to do a card with a lot of straight lines. I just had to add something to the card  with plaid. I went to the stamps from the new “Rooted in Nature” Bundle to solve my “too many lines” problem. I thought I was going to like the leaves the best but the one with the pine trees stole my heart!  The card on the lower right side got a little covering of the DSP (Designer Series Paper), called Nature’s Poem in that same suite of products. (Pages 142-144 in the new Annual Catalog) I hadn’t intended to use the dsp on these cards, but when I dropped my inked stamp onto one of my perfectly stamped cards…I did what any good stamper does, I covered it up, lol.

     June’s Paper Pumpkin kit coordinates with the Broadway Bound Suite on page 69 of the annual catalog!

     These are the cards we made at the May CB. The multiple card photos are just showing the different DSP’s, (Designer Series Paper) available for the different cards. The top card was cased from my friend, Patti Dolan, who cased it from Julie Salva. I just LOVE the color combo of that one and the Beautiful Day card…black really makes the Bermuda Bay and Pink Flamingo really pop! The flower from the top card in the collage is from the “Remarkable You” stamp set…soon…VERY SOON…to be retired!! Like in 10 days!! Get it while you can, it’s really a beautiful set.May18CB TWOCollage

 

     There’s a mix of very soon to be retired products and not available until June 1st, 2018 on these cards. If you’d like a FREE catalog from me, just make a $50 purchase and I will send one out to you! Or, I will send you a catalog, I just ask that you pay the S&H.

     I love stamping with these amazing ladies! They make it so fun and worthwhile to do the Card Classes. I love hearing who they sent their cards to!

Hello Stamping friends!

     What a blessing to spread the joy of stamping and see the joy of our loved ones as they receive our creations!  Always remember the impact of receiving a greeting card at a time when you are low, and it lifts your spirits, or when you are celebrating something special and someone remembers it with an encouraging card…and when it’s handmade, all the better.  Bless someone today!

     There is lot’s to be excited about with the new catalog coming out June 1st.  I hope you are as happy about the changes as I am, (several listed below). As a demonstrator, I have been able to purchase some of the new catalog products on a preorder…I am having a blast with them and I think you will too!

     I’ve been wanting to use this stamp set for awhile, I’m so glad I finally got the chance! This is a set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog and is not for sale…until the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog comes out in June! Yep, it made the cut! I’m so glad because I definitely want to play with it some more!

 I used Stampin’ Blends to color all but the lower left card, that I watercolored with reinkers. Personally, I’m a white wine girl, but the red wines look so pretty! I thought the Wood Textures DSP was a good fit…wineries so often have a rustic woodsy feel to them. I bring you more good news…SU! is keeping the Wood Textures DSP too! Such a great basic essential to card making…I think anyway…and apparently SU! thinks so too.

    Just the name of this stamp set can brighten your day! What a fun set to play with! Adhering a bunch of die cuts isn’t my favorite thing to do on a card, but by using the adhesive sheets it made these cards a breeze. I love that the set has various cloud dies…it makes for more interesting cloud arrangements, don’t you think?

     One of the embellishments that is not carrying over to the 2018-2019 catalog are these Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes. I’m definitely going to be stocking up on these, they are so cute on flowers…glass jars…raindrops…

     I couldn’t decide which I liked better, all fluffy white clouds or a combination of both fluffy white and darker more foreboding clouds. So, I made both! My husband liked the all fluffy white clouds. After making them and photographing them, I think I’m inclined to agree with him…they just look so cheerful!

   This adorable stamp set bundle is completely going away, either when it sells out or by May 31st. So make sure you get your Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes and Sunshine & Rainbow Bundle before it’s too late!
