Painted with Love Treats

Yesterday I shared a fun card that we made during this month’s Blue Mountain Stampers’ Team meeting and promised I’d share some of the wonderful swaps with you too.

So here we go! This first project is a fun box that Deborah showed us how to make – it holds quite a bit of goodies inside and doesn’t use any adhesive which is rather cool. This first one was made with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies (141707) and Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (145580).

It holds quite a bit of goodies inside and doesn’t use any adhesive which is rather cool.

Here is another version she made using the Fruit Basket stamp set (145833) and Tutti-Fruitti Designer Series Paper Stack (145606).

Where did the little fruit come from? It was supply cut out from the Designer Series Paper! Fun right?

And seems we were on a roll with the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper – as you can see it is really versatile. Loving this pack of paper with that fun gold touch!

Here is a little treat bag using the Sure Do Love You stamp set (145763/145766) and the pretty Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack (145588).

Recognize those little gold foil leaves? They are part of the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (1456553).

And here is a fun nugget holder using the Lift Me Up Stamp set (142893/142896) and Up & Away Thinlits Dies (142748).

I love the way the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper feels like a sky with it’s colorful streaks.

And finally a card made with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies (142749)

What can I say, we’ve got a great group and we love to share! Sound like fun? Would you like to come stamp with us too?

So what do you think? Sale-a-bration is a great time to join! Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t loose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too!

Bubble Over & Team Fun

Last week I gathered with my fellow team members to share, learn and create – I really enjoy this time together and always learn something new. This month our newest team member offered to share a fun pop up card with us.

So while she shared the technique I designed the card – don’t you LOVE team work! Want to see what we came up with?

I am loving the Bubble Over bundle from the Occasions Catalog and the coordinating Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration offerings, so that’s what I started with. And since the brick wall in the background kind of made this feel like teenage grunge I also reached for the Epic Celebrations stamp set to decorate the inside.

So what do you think? Great for a teen’s special day? I just love the bold bright colors that our Stampin’ Blends give us. I thought it was a perfect coloring option to go with the bold patterns on the Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing our team swaps with you along with a fun box too that was shared.

Supplies: 

Stamp Set: Bubble Over (145868) and Epic Celebrations (Sale-a-bration 147232/147236)

Inks: Memento tuxedo Black Ink (132708), Basic Gray Archival Ink (140932), and Pool Party Classic Ink (122924)

Paper: Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 147244), Lemon Lime Twist (144245), Calypso Coral (122925), Basic Gray (121044), and Whisper White card stock (100730)

Winter Weekend Team Fun

This past weekend my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, gathered for a few days of stamping, sharing and fun. We gather 3 times a year for these retreats and it is always a blast!

Cindy, gave everyone these sweet little Valentine boxes.

This time there were 7 of us – here is a early morning shot of the space on Saturday morning before the fun began.

This time on Saturday after our Shoe box Swap I introduced the Dice Game – and it seemed to be a hit!

Have you ever played? This game is always fun and it is fast paced!

Here are the rules. There are pans with 2 dice in them, all the prizes are put in the center of the circle. You roll the dice and then pass the pan, if you roll a double you get to choose a prize.

Then after all the prizes are gone from the center the timer is set. Then you start the game again, but this time you steal from each others piles of prizes. Seems there is always one that is highly sought after and is stolen frequently!

When the timer goes off the game is done and everyone gets to open their prizes!

We had so much fun doing this I’m sure we’ll be including it again!

And now on to the cards.

Want to see what we made in our Shoe box Swap? Everyone made great cards to share.

This first one uses the Petal Palette bundle (145973/145974. If you love this bundle of products check out my Class & Events, we’ll be using this in my February 3rd class to create a wonderful stationary box and cards. CLICK HERE for my Calendar of Events.

And here is a elegant card made using the Hold on to Hope bundle (145969/145970) and the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168).

I love the thinlits in the bundle – this larger cross has beautiful detail and the delicate cross in the set not only cuts the cross out, but also embosses a design on it.

And this final card uses the Brusho Crystal Colours (144101) and the Beautiful Day stamp set (145912/145915) found in the Occasions Catalog. Want to learn more about this fun new product? Check out my March class HERE.

Does this sound like fun to you? Would you love to join a group with those who love crafting as much as you? Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products you love and you can’t loose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, contact me – I’d love to tell you more about joining and answer any questions you may have.

Team Holiday Fun

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love to pamper my team! So for this month’s team meeting we had our Annual Holiday luncheon and enjoyed some time together where we laughed, shared, played and stamped.

Want to see some of the wonderful items they’ve been making since the last meeting?

Fantastic projects, right? I can’t pick a favorite – I’ve got such a great team of folks who just love to paper craft!

We had fun playing the dice game too. Have you ever played this game?

Fun, and fast paced! And of course when the clock runs out – the goodies are yours!

I made these fun Lots of Lavender Bags. The stamp set is one of our Sale-a-bration options and I couldn’t resist the yummy new ribbon from the Occasions Catalog.

Each bag was filled with a little something special from the NEW Occasions Catalog! Everyone was a winner!

And of course we made a couple of projects too- So we did some stamping too! I had so much fun designing for my Santa’s Workshop Class that I had too many projects for just one class. LOL! You know me I love gift items and 3ds!!! So we made some candle holders and learned a fun new technique while we were at it!

I found these yummy lemon candy canes at the Dollar Tree and couldn’t resist putting them with a lemon scented candle and using the Lemon Zest stamp set (143805/143808). This bundle has very quickly become one of my go to favorites! Lemons, oranges, and limes – oh, my!

I thought you might enjoy making some of these for yourself. With all the crazy flavored candy canes out there right now the options are endless, but of course I can’t resist anything lemon!

Here is my Blue Mountain Stampers’ Lemon Zest Candle Tutorial (printable PDF)

I’ve taken it a bit slower this past week and forgot I had this fun video to share with you from my OnStage Product Purchase Premiere – no worries tho, because I can share it with you today and you can see some of our wonderful new items in the Occasions Catalog.

OnStage Live – Product Purchase Premiere Sneak Peek Video

So what do you think? Love the new items too? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2018 Occasions Catalog! And as I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first?

Team Time = Fun Time & more!

Team Time with my peeps is always one of the best parts of the month – we have such fun together sharing and stamping together. Yesterday, we held our monthly Team Meeting, so today I thought I’d share with you some of the wonderful projects that I’ve received during swaps from my team members.

This first card Deborah made using the Colorful Seasons Bundle (145348) of products.

And this card was made using the Mabel Me Pretty  Bundle (145304/145305)

A couple of cute little boxes using the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper (144125)

And a bag using the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (144610) and the Wood Words Stamp (143925/143928) set currently on sale during our World Card Making Day promotion.

And I love how our Multipurpose Adhesive sheets (144106) make this Birthday Thinlits Die (143700) so easy to use! This card has a soft watercolor feel to it since it was teamed up with our Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (144137) that is part of our Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper promotion.

This little square card was made using the Jar of Love (141587) and coordinating Everyday Jars Framelits Dies (141490) Isn’t it adorable?

Love Designer Series paper? How about decorating some note pads like Cindy did? I couldn’t pick a favorite – how about you? You can get your favorites this month during our Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series paper promotion.

And here is the Lemon Zest stamp set (143805/142808) – we got to play with the Embossing Paste (141979) and even added color to it with a Rose Red reinker. How cool is that?

And finally here is a cute little post it note holder that Cindy made for everyone at the Peak Princess event using the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper (144125). This stuff is great for a project like this since it is a bit heavier weight kraft paper.

Whew! Lot’s of great projects and inspiration shared – right?

Celebrating with Peak Princess Day

We also had a special event last month – it’s a day of pampering that I do twice a year, I call it my Peak Princess event – after all we are Blue Mountain Stampers. LOL! We had our largest group qualify this time – 8 in total.

I love to make special appetizers and treats for everyone to enjoy. So we always begin these events with some time enjoying some goodies and sharing.

And this time the Olive Bread was a huge hit! So I thought I’d share the recipe with you too. It’s really yummy – my guys were tickled they got some too! (Just a tip cut the bread evenly so the cheese doesn’t melt and slide down one side. This half was not the prettiest, but oh so good!)

Olive Cheese Bread

1 loaf French Bread

About 25 Mezzetta © Spanish Queen Pimento Stuffed Olives

6 oz. can of Black Olives, drained

2 stalks Green Onions (scallions)

1 stock Butter, room temperature

1/2 c. Mayonnaise

3 c. Monterey Jack Cheese, grated

Roughly chop both black olives and pimiento stuffed olives. Slice green onions into thin pieces. Combine butter mayonnaise, cheese, olives and green onions in a mixing bowl. Stir together until thoroughly combined.

Spread mixture thickly onto French bread that has been sliced lengthwise. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and browning.

Mixture can also be made in advanced and refrigerated for up to 2 days.

 

We also get to celebrate and recognize achievements with team gifts.

And we make projects too so everyone had a make ‘n take packet ready for them – after all we love stamping together!

Shoe box fun at the Blue Mountain Stampers’ Weekend Retreat

This past weekend was my 5th Annual Weekend Retreat – (wow it’s so hard to believe we’ve been doing this that long already!) This event is held each June so that we can gather and have fun playing with our new catalog goodies. It’s a laid back, full of stamping and laughter – just a great weekend of sharing and fellowship. I feel really blessed to have such a wonderful team.

There were a total of 8 of us this time and we had a lot of fun with a project Cindy has been wanting to try – Shrinky Dinks!

Several of the group had never played with Shrinky Dinks before, so you know what that means! Who doesn’t love watching them watch them curl up and shrink?

We also did a shoe box swap on Saturday, so I thought I would share the cards everyone made for it.

This first card is made with Pocket Full of Sunshine (143719) and the Pocket Framelits Dies (143750) that you can get in a bundle allowing you to save 10% (145345). I think it is a very fun set, perfect for those younger folks in our life.

And this next card uses the Daisy Delight stamp set (143669), Daisy Punch (143713) and the Wood Words stamp set (143925/143928). Can you guess where the scallop comes from?

It’s the Seasonal Layers Framelits Dies (143751).

The Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set (143937/143940) was used to create this lovely Powder Pink card.

And how about this great card made with the Daisy Delight Bundle (145361) and the sentiment from Swan Lake (142974/142977).

And the final card today, is a wonderful Masculine card made in rich bold colors using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies (143700). You are going to love the NEW 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding (144189) and

Pinewood Planks 3d Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (143708) since it creates a wonderfully deep, dimensional images!!!

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing my shoe box and a FREE tutorial so you can make one too.

Sound like our team might be the right fit for you? If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can the first to get new Stampin’ Up! products PLUS get a discount on them!

Touches of Texture & More

Team time = fun and swaps, so today I thought I’d share some of the cards that my team members made for March’s Team Meeting.

This first card is Deborah’s and she used her new skills that she learned using the Watercolor Pencils to add color to her flowers.

I’ve included the recipe below for this card. (You’ll have to scroll way down to the bottom.)

Mary’s card uses the wonderful Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (144728) and our yummy Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper (140550) and Falling in Love Designer Series Paper (142788) with it’s soft colors it’s perfect for spring!

And this final card is from Cindy. Cindy loves soft pastels, so this card is very Cindy as our team says. LOL!

Cindy used the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die (140621) and Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (141706) to create this beautiful Easter card focal point along with the Suite Sentiments Stamp Set (140709/140712).

My team is a large part of what makes my Stampin’ Up! experience so special – they are a wonderful group of crafters who love to stamp, share and we inspire each other with what we love to do….paper craft. What could be better?

Peak Princess Day

I love to pamper my team and Peak Princess Day is all about the pampering! So today I thought I’d share some photos from our last Peak Princess Day in February so you can see what it’s all about.

The day is about pampering, fellowship and sharing as a team so we have some goodies to enjoy while we visit and stamp.

And of course I made these fun little treats for everyone. (You can see more about these Rabbit Mini Coffee Cups HERE).

And  we share too – Here are some 3d projects that Deborah and Cindy brought to show what they were making.

And here is a card Cindy shared using the Falling in Love Stamp set (143106/143109), Window Box Thinlits Dies (142762) and Succulent Garden 3/8″ Ribbon combo Pack (142781).

There has to be some prizes, right? So we drew some names from everyone who qualified for this special day of pampering!

Melanie, Donna, Mary and Deborah all were winners!

We went on to stamp together and tried our hands at some new techniques for our Make n’ Takes.

Can you believe I forgot a team picture? Sigh….next time!

Sound like fun? Would you like to join us next time? Now is a great time and there is no obligation when you join.

Would you like to be a happy Shopper? If so Sale-a-bration is a great time to join!

Team Time & Swapping

Inspire, Share and Create – That’s what we do as a team once a month at our meetings when we get together. Today’s items that I’ll be sharing with you are swaps that were made by my fellow team members, a group of wonderful stampers! While we’ve all been stamping for different lengths of time it’s amazing how much we learn from each other! Oh, and did I mention we just have fun?

This first card is one that Mary made. It’s a peekaboo pullback card using the Watercolor Wings stamp set (139424) and Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies (138135).

Done in the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper (141663) and using just two colors – it’s quite striking.

How how about this card Cindy made using the Hey, Chick (Sale-a-bration item 143328/143331) and Greatest Greetings (140703/140706) stamp sets.

Cindy used the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (142778) and Woodgrain Embossing Folder (127821) to create a fun textured background for this little water colored image.

And how about some fun goodies too? Deborah made these fun little bags using the Oh, So Succulent Bundle (145184) and wrapped it all up with a bow!

If you haven’t felt the Succulent Garden 3/8″ Ribbon (142781) – it’s sooo soft and luxurious feeling. I wasn’t sure about this suite of products when I first saw them, but I’ve definitely added them to my wish list!

And finally a little file folder filled with a Ghiradelli chocolate. I love the soft colors of the Cupcakes & Carousel Designer Series Paper Stack (142744) Cindy teamed up with the the  Designer T stamp set (Sale -a-bration item 143356)  sentiment. Can you guess where the sentiment on the tab comes from?

Well it’s the Pretty Kitty stamp set (141861/141864). Of course, the cloud and little bird are from the Tree Builder Punch (138295). Fun right and who wouldn’t smile when they got this little treat? If you’d like to learn how to make these little treat folders you can click HERE to see my video tutorial.

Winter Weekend Retreat & More

This past weekend I held my Annual Winter Weekend retreat for my team – a fun weekend of fun, fellowship and stamping, of course. Today I thought I’d share some pictures we took during the 3 day event.

This first one is our team name tags for the tables and an extra special little goodie bag.

The bag contained these wonderful Team Aprons.

Here is our team photo from the retreat. I feel so blessed – they are the best team members!

We always have a Shoe box Swap on Saturday and so today I thought I’d share with you some of the wonderful cards everyone designed for the swap.

This first card is Cindy’s – I just love the way that she used the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper. A great  use of this paper since it is so masculine at first glance.

And how about this card Mary made using the Oh So Succulent stamp set (142992) and coordinating Framelits Dies (142757).

And this soft and lovely card that Deborah brought was made using the Avant Garden stamp set (143272) from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. This set is is just one of the FREE items you earn a Sale-a-bration item with a minimum $50 purchase.

Melanie designed this fun Valentine card using the Sealed with Love stamp set (142815) and coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies (142752).

I love sparkle – So this fun card from Marni using the Balloon Adventures stamp set (14823) and Balloon Pop-up Thinlits Dies (142753) fills the bill and is so classic too with it’s color choice.

And this final card that Anna made is bright and cheerful – It used the really cool Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder (142760).

It’s so quick and easy to create this card with the debossed impression folders – just add some ink and voila!

Team Holiday Fun

Last week our Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers had it’s annual Christmas Party so I thought I’d share some of what we did with you.

This year our December meeting consisted of a luncheon, BINGO and of course stamping! Here are some pictures from the event.

BINGO was something new we tried as a team – I’m thinking it was a hit!
