Timeless Tropical Treats

Love quick and easy treats? If so our Ombre Gift Bags might be just the think you are looking for since they make creating a treat quick and easy. I was inspired to create my own little gift bag by a swap that I received (you can see it HERE).

Make them up ahead and simply slide your goodie inside when you’re ready.

Bags are 4 3/4″ x 7″ so they’ll hold quite a bit too. This batch I whipped up for a little Team gift for our Meeting, I filled them with a sweet little treat for my along with a little something I picked up on the Maui Incentive Trip in May.

They were a hit for sure.

Want to see how I made them? I’ve got a quick little video tutorial and PDF for you.

Sweet as a Peach

Today’s card uses one of the Suites from the Annual Catalog, It immediately drew my attention with it’s wonderful color pallet. After all I live in Georgia, so how could I resist a set great sentiments and images of peaches? We are the peach state after all.

I think you’re going to really like this Suite, so much so I’m going to be doing a class with it in August! I made today’s card for the Maui Incentive Trip card swap that I will be participating in this week. And really love the way it turned out using a simple sponging technique to create a two tone effect on the fruit and branches.

And it’s a fun fold too! So why not check out my video tutorial and see what you think?

Pinch me… I can’t believe we’re in Maui!

And on a personal note since today is the first day of the Maui Incentive Trip I wanted to share the little package that I received last month with our travel documents.

This little package contained a Maui pin, along with our name tags, luggage tags, travel wallet with paperwork, and masks since Maui has a mask mandate still in place.

I can’t tell you how excited we are to be in Maui, courtesy of Stampin’ Up! And we wouldn’t be going if it weren’t for my amazing team, The Blue Mountain Stampers and my wonderful stampers, and customers. This will truly be a trip of a life time for us. So thank you again and stop back by, as I’ll be sharing some photos will you both here and on my facebook page with you as I’m able.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the cute little 3D project I made for the swap with you.

Enjoy!

Sweet Ice Cream Thank You Card

Today’s card is one I created to share during our OnTour event. I wanted to show case the NEW 2021 In Colors that I had just received during PreOrder. Here is what I came up with.

I like the way the card turned out. I used the Basic Borders Die to create a “table cloth” since I thought the Soft Succulent gave off a vintage vibe. I’m really loving the Evening Evergreen since it can be used as a neutral color like I did here.

I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you. This is a two step stamp set and so you’ve got all kinds of options.

There is still time to sign up for the Sweet Ice Cream Card Class

Handsomely Suited & 2021 Catalog Sneak Peek

If you have a hard time creating for the guys in your life the Well Suited Suite might be just the thing you need to have for creating great cards. While the Handsomely Suited stamp set (154444) is great for the guys the Suit & Tie Dies (154322) that are part of the Bundle (156240) are great for creating all kinds of projects – the choices are endless simply by mixing and matching.

Today I’ll be sharing some cards for the guys in our lives using this suite. This first one uses the fun Well Suited Designer Series Paper (154562) for a fun fold birthday card.

And this next one creates a great card for Father’s Day that’s been done in the classic color combination of red and black.

And this final card uses the Classic Label Punch (Retiring 141491) for the sentiment. Can you see the added texture in the background?

The Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder (Retiring 151590) was used to create some texture. Choose the Suite Collection (155983) and you’ll get everything in the suite in one easy number that includes a 10% discount on the Handsomely Suited Bundle too.

Why not stop by my online store and check it out? And of course while you are there you can stop by the Clearance Rack and the Last Chance List for the 2020 Annual Catalog too. There are some great discounts right now.

2021 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek

The NEW Annual Catalogs are in the mail and are starting to arrive. If you are a current customer of mine you’ll be getting yours soon. So today I thought I’d share my unboxing for some of the great items I was able to PreOrder from the Annual Catalog.

2021 Annual Catalog PreOrder Sneak Peek Video

Of course, the In Colors are always my favorite place to start looking when I get the catalog – nothing like new colors! And this is the first year I think I’ve LOVE them all, typically there is one color that takes me a bit to fall in love with, but not this year. Here is a preview.

Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, and Pale Papaya!!!

There is nothing like them in our color families – so over the next few days I thought I’d share some color comparisons with you. Today I’ll be highlighting Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink for you.

Fresh Freesia is a lovely shade of purple that will bring a smile to your face – I just love purple and am so happy we have this option. I’ve included the retiring Purple Posy for you in this first comparison so you can see its nothing like the Purple Posy that is retiring.

And Polished Pink is cheerful and a perfect shade of pink! A bit softer feeling than our Magenta Madness and Melon Mambo, but bolder and more of a true pink feeling than our Flirty Flamingo

So what do you think? Like the new colors?

Don’t forget and make sure to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the 2021-2023 In Colors Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent with you and some more comparisons too.
