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?

Everyday Hero & tons more!

Recently I was able to get together with my Kathleen and her team for some stamping fun and so I thought I’d share some of the project that we made together along with some of the swaps we did.

The first card I’m sharing with you is a swap from Maria using the Everyday Hero stamp set (143080). Maria used our Watercolor Pencils to color this adorable super hero and the Gold Wink of Stella (141898) to color win the WOW so it sparkles.

More swapping fun included cards from Lorraine and Susan using the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle of products (144728).

If you haven’t already gotten this bundle it’s a great one! Lots of fantastic ideas are out there – the options are endless!

And of course who doesn’t love the Beautiful You stamp set 143004/143637) that Teresa used for her card.

And Linda who is new to the team used the Layering Love stamp set (141962/141965) along with the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (141654) to create this soft lovely card.

She used the Decorative Label Punch (120907) for the end of the banner in a different way – She slipped the card stock into the punch and through the hole so that she only cut one end of the card stock – cool, right?

I just love the versatility of punches!

And finally some of our Make n Takes that I stamped. First this cute little 3d boat made using the Window Box Thinlits Die (142762). Wouldn’t these be great done in red, white and blue for Memorial Day?

And a card using using the Window Shopping Bundle (144742/144743) which includes the same Thinlits, but using it in a different way.

And I love this Suite of products – the Urban District found on page 47 of the Occasions Catalog contains some wonderful coordinating products that include two stamp sets, Designer Series Paper and embellishments! Wow – great for the guys in our lives and so many other uses too.

And finally a Sale-a-bration project using the So Very Much stamp set (143340/143343) that you can earn for free until March 31st.

I loved this emboss resist technique using the 2016 In Colors so much that I’m sending this card out this month to say thank you when you place an order!

Whew! what did I tell you lots of sharing and inspiring going on.  Stamping with my fellow demonstrators is one of the things I enjoy most – it’s a time to gather, learn and inspire each other. And I’ve made some wonderful friendships in my stamping journey because I’m part of the community of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

Inside the Lines Watercolor Challenge

Last month when we met as a team we did some training using our Watercolor Pencils and I challenge everyone to create a project using what they learned. If you’d like to learn more about using our Watercolor Pencils you can click HERE to see the tutorials and worksheets.

Everyone received a piece of the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper as part of the challenge. So today I’m sharing with you a couple of the cards we made.

This first card is one I created. The flowers are water colored using an Aqua Painter. And I used our beautiful Sale-a-bration Glimmer Paper Assortment as the base to my dragonfly. I LOVE this stuff the colors are so rich and beautiful and add a intense pop of color!

On this next card Cindy used the Watercolor Pencils simply as colored pencils for a different look.

A soft subtle look that is definitely Cindy’s Style. She used a layer of vellum that she cut using Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies (138135) and topped that with a layer of Calypso Coral she cut using the Butterfly Thinlits Dies (137360). I like the way that these two sets of dies can be used together or stand on their own. And do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from our Greatest Greetings stamp set (140703/140706) that you can find on page 78 in our Annual Catalog.

Did you know that you can earn this items (while supplies last) now through the end of March? During Sale-a-bration when you place a $50 order you can choose a Sale-a-bration item for FREE! And there are a lot of great choices to choose from.

Dragonfly Dreams & Upcoming Classes

Dragonfly Dreams has been one of the most popular bundles in the Occasions Catalog. And when you see the lovely cards it can make you’ll know why.

This card uses a wonderful watercolor wash background created with our reinkers and Aqua Painter. The simplicity of this card is just wonderful I think.And I fell in love with this background as soon as I saw it – teals and water colored tones are some of my favorite colors so I was thrill when Cara shared with me how she made this background on her swap.  If you would like to see how to create this background too I’ve made a quick video for you.
