Fresh Prints & Watercolor Wonder

With the Occasions Catalog ending tomorrow June 1st I thought I would share some cards that use the wonderful Designer Series Paper that you’ll find inside its pages.

These first two cards use the same basic colors and the Designer Series Paper Stack, Fresh Prints (132996). but are totally different looks. Our stacks are great for card making since they contain lots of different patterns that are 41/2″ x 6″, just right for a card front.

Perfectly Penned

I love the paper peeking out from the tag, don’t you? Punches are great to create negative space, here the Petite Petals Punch (133322) was used along with the Bitty Butterfly Punch (129406). And who doesn’t love the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (133324)? There are so many fun ways to use it. Can you see the texture in the Real Red background? If you guessed our Arrows Embossing Folder (132187) from the Occasions Catalog you are right!

I love bundles and this next card uses two of our bundles, Flower Shop (132727/132726) and the Petite Petals Bundle (134821/134822). Coordinating punches just make things sooo quick and simple!

Petite Petals

The sentiment is from the single stamp Vivid Vases (133818) that you can find in the Occasions Catalog.

Watercolor Wonder meets Peaceful Petals

This card was given to me by one of my Team members, JoAnn. I love the color combinations found in the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (132994) they are so soft and subtle.

Peaceful Petals

JoAnn used the Peaceful Petals stamp set (133104/133107) added some texture with the Stampin’ Distress Tool (127562) and a little touch of shine when she used a few sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim (132983). So simple but a lovely card anyone would enjoy getting.

Have you ever thought about becoming a Demonstrator? We have a wonderful special going on right now where you can join for just $50! and it’s a great time to join with the 2014 Catalog going live in just a couple of days.

I’d love to speak with you and have you as part of my team, we have a lot of fun together and are very active. Click HERE for more details.

Hello, Sailor & Another Great Year

Here are a couple of fun cards that use the Hello, Sailor stamp set (133275/133278), High Tide Designer Series Paper (132992), and the Pacific Point 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon from the Occasions Catalog.

Hello, Sailor (3)

This card holds a little surprise with the way it opens for the inside sentiment which I thought was rather clever since the Pacific Point (111350) background it a bit dark for writing on compared to the Pool Party Card Stock (122924).

Hello, Sailor inside

This second card while it used all the same basic elements as the first card does, it also includes a layer of  Smoky Slate and the World Map Background stamp (130342/130345).

Hello, Sailor (1)

Don’t you love the feel of these two cards? I do – of course for me any sets to do with water are always a hit since I miss Lake Michigan and now live in the land locked Georgia mountains. LOL.

Another Great Year

Here is a wonderfully easy set to work with that will no longer be available after June 1st when the Occasions Catalog ends and is one I’m going to miss. Another Great Year (133038/133041) has this wonderful image that is so easy to use and creates a great focal point for any card along with several other images and a sentiment.

Another Great Year

This particular card uses paper piecing to create this colorful Coastal Cabana (131297)banner. Polka dots made with some scraps of Tangerine Tango, Baked Brown Sugar, and So Saffron card stock and of course, the Gold Sequin Trim (132983). Just pull a few sequins off the string and you’re in business! Now you can a little shine to any project quickly and easily!

The items from our Occasions Catalog are only available until 11:50 p.m. (MT) on Sunday, June 1st so there is still time to get your favorite items.

Peachy Keen & On Film Framelits

Did you know that the Occasions Catalog is ending on Sunday, June 1st? Well it does, and so today I thought share with you some projects that I made using the bundle (135224/135225) of products along with some of the other items you’ll find in the Occasions Catalog.

This first project is a 3d box that I made and filled with some chocolates for a friend as a thank you. The little gable box holds quite a bit of chocolate too which is always a plus when it comes to chocolate LOL.

Peachy Keen 3d

To create the focal point on this box I first stamped my heart image from the Peachy Keen stamp set (133110/133113)  in Real Red (126949) and then used my VersaMark Pad (102283) and the Pool Party Embossing Powder (129398). The polka dot pattern came from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (132996).

This next card is one of my Shoebox Swaps

Peachy Keen  Leadership swap

I really love the little bow we made using the 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (132140). All I did was cut one end to expose the thread and pulled a couple off to use for this project. Cool, huh?

And this last card was also made with the On Film Framelits (132969) along with the Happy Watercolor stamp set (133188/133191). I stamped my image onto Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650) and placed my photo frame cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock (131201) on top. Added a bit of our Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape (133000), a Very Vintage Designer Button (129327) and a piece of Gold Bakers Twine (132975) that I placed through the button and tied a knot in.

Happy Watercolor Leadership swap

I really love the little pop of color that our Brights Candy Dots (130931) added the Banner Punch (133519) pieces too.

Stop by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some cards made with the Hello, Sailor stamp set.

So Very Happy

I cut my squares 1 3/8″ and then used the Project Life Corner (135346) to round two of the corners. Stamped my image using the new Memento Tuxedo Black Pad (132708)and colored my flowers using the new Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Markers (130998).  You’ll need the new Memento pad when working with our new alcohol markers and I can’t begin to tell you how much fun the new Blendabilities are to play with!

Do you enjoy stamping with others? I know I do and I always love going to my friend Kathleen’s monthly meeting and learning new things while spending time with my demonstrator friends.

Today’s project is one that uses the Geometrical stamp set (133158/133161) and Triangle Punch (133375) from the Occasions Catalog.

Back to the card, this fun card was one of the projects I made during our monthly meeting as a Make ‘n Take. We simply stamped our triangles in the color we wanted, curled the ends with a Bone Folder and attached to a circle to hold them in place before adding it to our card front. The stem is just a scrap and of course this fun greeting is one you’ll find in the Really Good Greetings stamp set (130330/130333).

Want to join in the fun? Have you ever thought about becoming a demonstrator? Want to earn a little extra cash or get a discount – the choice is up to you when you’re a demonstrator, so why not join my TEAM? I’d love to speak with you about it and we’ve got a special promotion starting tomorrow so it is a great time to join.

Betsy’s Blossoms Pop Up Post It Note Holder

Yesterday I held my annual Retirement Party and I gave everyone a little gift who attended, a little Pop Up Post It Note Holder that I made using the Betsy’s Blossoms Stamp Set. They were such a hit I thought that today I would share with you how I made them.

Pop Up Post it Note Holder Besty Blossoms

They are so easy to make and I really love the way the top pops up and is displayed when you set them on your desk. And can you see the little sentiment? It’s from the Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set (128577/120501) which is retiring. This set gives you so many choices to choose from to create just the right phrase that you’re looking for.

Betsy’s Blossoms is one of the fun sets that is retiring from the 2013 Catalog on June 4th. I’m going to miss this set with it’s bold images. If you’d like to see all the items on the Retirement List CLICK HERE.

Love You To the Moon

Today’s card is one I made to send a friend that is having a rough time lately and I wanted to let her know that she always is a ray of sunshine in my life not matter how rough things get.

And this paper coordinates with our Scallops Embossing Folder (132971) from the Occasions Catalog. Don’t you love the way Stampin’ Up! products work together whether they are new or retiring?
