Healing Hugs

Todays project is all about wishing someone well. I chose Daffodil Delight because this color is bright and cheery; exactly what you need on a rainy day. 

I love the Distinctive Stamps which are available in the new catalog. The stamp image looks almost like a photograph. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Bouquet Blooms Gift Package

I wanted to make little gifts I can hand out to friends and family and what is better than giving something they can actually pass on to somebody else. Spread the love!!! I wanted to make a couple of Notecards and wanted to put them in an envelope type packaging.

I did some research on Amazon and found these cool plastic snaps which can be used for a lot of different things. They come in a kit which includes all the tools to get started. 

I made two easy notecards and included envelopes, now if I really wanted to be nice I could add the stamps to mail it too. Well, we have to see. 

I used the Shimmery White Paper and used the envelop punch board to create the envelope which the cards fit snug into. 
I can only hope to get one back. LOL

Blended Seasons

One of the benefits being a Demonstrator is, that we are first in line to see and get new product. That was the case with the Blended Season bundle.  The reason we get to order it first is, so we have time to play with it and make beautiful projects so our customers get an idea what they can create. 

This was my first try with it, and I have to say it is so worth getting it. Remember also, if you buy the bundle you will save 10%.  I colored my flowers with Watercolor Pencils which are also shown in the picture below, but are not included in the bundle . I do recommend if you do not have Watercolor Pencils it might be good to invest in some. 


This beautiful Bundle will be available to you until August 31st. As you can see in the pictures below it is so beautiful and versatile on top of it.  

Let me know if I can order one for you! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Mini Notebook Key Chains

It's getting warmer here and the best place to stay cool is my craft room. As you can see I have been a little busy today. But these cute little Mini Notebook Key chains are way to much fun to make.

And look at this Share What You Love Specialty paper, isn't it so beautiful. I had to try every design.
In this picture I was actually able to capture the shimmer on the paper. Isn't it gorgeous.

I made so many of these cute little pads, that I would like to give some away.
The first 10 customers which are placing a $25 or more order on my Stampin' UP! website (which you can reach when you click on the shopping cart on the top right corner) until the July 31, will receive one of these cute little notebook key chains. Use Hostess Code TS9GFSDV for orders below $150.
Gifts will only be shipped in the continental US.
Looking forward to sending one to you!

Painted Harvest

For this card I combined two of my favorite things, which are warm colors and sunflowers. I love to combine different shades of colors and stamps. For this card I used a piece of Vanilla cardstock and sponged it with Real Red and Mango Melody. These two colors combined are reminding me of the beautiful sunsets we get here in Idaho. I finished the card of with a little twine and of course these gorgeous looking sunflowers.
I didn't put a sentiment on the card yet, because I'm waiting for the right occasion to give this card.  
I hope you liked todays project, and hope you will be back to see more.

Lined Alphabet

I used the Lined Alphabet stamp set to create this cute little birthday card. It comes in a bundle with matching Framelits and the possibilities with this Bundle are just endless. I just started easy for the beginning but will have a lot more fun with it.

I used the Birthday stamp and the candles from the Birthday Banners set which is an oldie but still in the currant catalog, it sure completes the look of the card.  For the final touch I embossed the stamped image with the Subtle Embossing Folder, which became an absolute favorite of mine.

Dandelion Wishes

Just looking at the Dandelion Wishes stamp set makes me become poetic. LOL! But it's true, this stamp set has something going on, which is hard to describe. It definitely can be used for a lot of occasions, and I love when a stamp set can be used for more than one reason.  
For this card I used Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Basic Black Cardstock. I achieved the Bokeh look by using Sponge Daubers in two different colors. I love the simplicity of this card!
Let me know how you like this stamp set and the card.
 I would love to hear from you!
Have a fantastic weekend!

Beautiful Day

For todays project I used the no lines and water coloring technique.  I wanted to try this for the longest time but never got around to it.  Guess I was waiting for the right stamp set. Well, I found it, Beautiful Day is perfect for any coloring technique.
I inked up the flower stamp in crumb cake, but before I stamped it on the cardstock I took a little color off by stamping it on some scrap paper. This is called stamp on, stamp off technique.  I wanted to have just a light stamped image which wouldn't show through the water coloring. I embossed the butterfly in bronze embossing powder on vellum and colored it also with water colors. The background was sponged with Mint Macaroon and for the edging I used Garden Green.
Thanks for stopping by!

2018-2020 In Colors

I joined a online catalog convention with our team and part of it was the new 2018-2020 In Colors. Not only did we play with the new cardstock, but also with new punches and embossing folders. This was just an awesome way to play with new items in the catalog.  
I'm in love with all the new items in the catalog but especially with  the 2018-2020 In Colors. They are so bright and cheery and they go well together.
What do you think?
You can actually receive these new In Colors for free during the month of July. If you are interested in how to get them, just contact me.
Thanks for checking in!

Bouquet Blooms

I had to make another card with the Bouquet Blooms Bundle, it is just so pretty. This time I decided to emboss the flower cluster with bronze embossing powder and used my Stampin' Blends to color the flowers.
My favorite colors are the bright and cheery ones and I do like the outcome of this card. If you like to see more of the Stampin' Blends you can find them right HERE
Have a great weekend!

Brusho Crystal Colours

This was my first try using Brusho Crystal Colors and I have to admit I started with something very easy. When I first heard about them I was kind of curious but also apprehensive, I didn't know what to expect. Now since I went through my first trail run I have to admit easier than it looks.
I had a lot of fun playing with them, and you will too!
Thanks for stopping by!
