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!

Red, White & Blue Wood Words and July Specials

I love making little note pad holders and today’s project is no exception – I was inspired by the little flags I found in my stash and done in patriotic colors using the Wood Words stamp set I really love the way it turned out.

I’m finding the Wood Words Bundle (145314/145316) is really very versatile and a lot of fun to work with!

Want to make some yourself? They are quick and easy to make with your Stampin’ Trimmer or Simply Scored Scoring Tool. Here are the measurements for a 3 x 3 inch pad of flags.

Measurements:

Night of Navy Card : Cut 6 3/4″ x 3 1/4″; score at 3 1/4″ and 3 1/2″

Real Red Card stock: Cut 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″

Whisper White Card stock: Cut 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″

Instructions:

  1. Stamp sentiment in Real Red Classic Ink in the lower left hand corner of Whisper White Card stock.
  2. Stamp flower image using Night of Navy Classic Ink diagonally across your Whisper White Card stock. Adhere to Real Red Card stock.
  3. Stamp star image using Real Red Classic Ink onto scrap of Whisper White card stock.
  4. Cut out the star using the Framelits Die. Add to center of Whisper White piece using a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  5. Add  Rhinestones scattered around image and star as desired.
  6. Add Stampin’ Dimensional to the back of the Real Red layered piece and add to Night of Navy “lid”.
  7. Fold Night of Navy Card stock on score lines. Adhere note pad onto inside.

Yep it’s that quick and easy. Sorry no PDF for this project or video I’m limping along on my husband’s computer. But I’ve included the supply list below for you.

Wood Words Tutorial

This card was hands down everyone’s favorite at my Catalog Kick Off this month and so I thought you would enjoy seeing it too.

This stamp set was one of the first that I got from the NEW 2017 Annual Catalog. I couldn’t resist the little Wood Crate Framelits Dies (143730) that were part of the bundle when I saw them. After all I LOVE 3d items that I can use as gifts filled with a few goodies.

If you haven’t seen the Copper Trim it is fantastic. I’ve used it in bow form here, but you can see just how versatile it is on my card HERE. And I’ve already used loads of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (144177)!

Want to see just how easy this card is to make? Here is a tutorial showing you how it was made.

Birthday Delivery

The Birthday Memories Suite of products is really quite cool. Not only does it include as great bundle of stamps and Framelits Dies, Honeycomb Balloon Embellishments, ribbon and Designer Series Paper, but the Framelits cut out images from the Designer Series Paper! Like I said cool right?

I shared this card back in April with you (HERE) after attending our On Stage event in Savannah where we not only cut out the image but stamped the sentiment – The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper is sized perfectly to work with the stamps too!

I’ve given you the complete supply list for this card below. If you love these coordinating products you’ll love the fact that Stampin’ Up! has given us a bundle of products that contains not only the stamps and Framelits dies, but also the Designer Series paper.

Who doesn’t love the little Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments (144124) on this card? It’s fun and it’s so cute!

And this fun fancy fold card – bright, bold and colorful.

And how about this sweet little girl gate fold card done in Powder Pink?

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!
