Magenta Madness Beautiful Moments

Simply stamp your project, then stamp the image again onto the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper (153070) and cut out with a Paper Snips. Add it to your stamped image and voila! Like I said soooo simple and it really makes an impact.

Way to Goat Card Class


Yesterday I shared the card that I created April’s birthdays that I’m sending out and so today I thought I’d share the wonderful cards that I received for my birthday last month. It was such a wonderful surprise each time I found one of these special little envelopes in my mail box. Such happy mail from my friends and fellow stampers! And a wonderfully uplifting experience as we were transitioning through March to the shelter in place we have now.

So on to the fun part, sharing with you! I’ll start with the fancy folds

This first card uses the It Starts with Art stamp set (149303) and it’s coordinating dies. Can you see the sheen on the ribbon? Both the Clear Wink of Stella and our Fine Tip Glue Pen has been used to add some shimmer and shine!

This next card uses the Daisy Lane stamp set (149325) and it’s coordinating Daisy Punches.

The Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (149478) adds a bit of interest and the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder (152321) adds some texture to this lovely little card.

And this next card is soft and lovely

Done in Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz it uses our Tin Tile 3D embossing Folder (151801) and the Healing Hugs stamp set (148223).

And finally this fun easel card using the scallop circle as it’s base – fun right?

Decorated with the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (151324) and stamped with the Painted Poppies stamp set (151599) and coordinating Painted Labels Dies (151605). These dies are currently on back order but will be back in stock soon for ordering!

And how about a couple more cards using these products?

This last card cleverly uses the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper (149443) from the Annual Catalog.

And here is another card this time using the Night of Navy patterns from the paper along with this lovely image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set (151677). I just love how versatile this Designer Series Paper pack is!

Here is a card using one of my favorite stamps, Waterfront (146386). A great set for creating scenes like this one.

How about this lovely card using the Lovely Lilypad products that were available during Sale-a-bration last month.

and another using the Happy Birthday to You stamp set that was added to the Paper Pumpkin Kit. I just love how our products work together!

And finally some kit cards – using past Paper Pumpkin Kits among others. This shows you just how great our Paper Pumpkin kits have been and the variety you can expect when you subscribe.

I love how kits make crafting so easy to do!

Whew! That’s all I’m able to share for today, (my internet is giving me fits right now) – But stop by my Facebook page where I’ll be sharing all the cards I received this year.

Beautiful Moments

This stamp set is filled with beautiful sketched images, sentiments using a lovely font and is perfect for your favorite coloring technique.

Today I wanted to share this lovely card I received that uses our Stampin’ Blends to color these lovely images.

Done using the Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. Texture was added with our Basket Weave and Texture 3D Embossing Folders. (Speaking of our wonderful 3D Embossing Folders – Did you know we have a special 3D Embossing Plate that you can use to make sandwich for embossing quick and easy when using your Big Shot or other Die machine? We also have replacement cutting plates available too.)

And here is another card I’ve shared with you earlier using this set. This time using bold Rich Razzleberry and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends inspired by the Poppies Designer Series Paper.

The options are endless since you can use the coloring method of your choice and each coloring tool you choose will give you a different feel which makes it a lot of fun to create with!

Are you at home? With the request that we stay in place, you’ll need a way to fight the boredom . Why not think about stamping? And of course staying connected with our family and friends by sending a card? Just because we have to be physically apart doesn’t mean we can’t reach out to others through different methods, like a phone call or sending a card. Not only will you brighten someones day, you’ll feel better too!

And of course I have class options that will allow you to still create while at home – check out my kit to go options found on my Calendar of Events or contact me today to learn more. Or my new Virtual Class option that I shared with you last week.

Spotlighting the Blue Mountain Stampers

Last week we had our monthly Team Meeting and so today I wanted to share with you some of the projects that were brought by everyone to share. It’s always fun to see what everyone has been up to since we last stamped together.

This first card is a fun fold, pocket card and it is done in our bright Flirty Flamingo and always a favorite Blackberry Bliss.

Shirley used the Peaceful Moments Stamp set (151595) and Poppy Moments Dies (151594) for this lovely pocket card. This fold is very easy but always packs a wow.

Spring is coming and this next card makes me think spring since it uses the Sending You Thoughts stamp set (152297 Sale-a-bration) and the Coordination product, Sending Flowers Dies (153589). Wanda also chose to make her cards with a variety of colors, this time our 2018-2020 In Colors. I just love the difference color makes.

Did you know that March is a great time to fill in your 2018-2020 In Color Collections? Not only will you get to earn Sale-a-bration products when you order during March but you’ll also beat the Retirement List rush. So why not check your collection and make sure you have all your favorites? Ink Pads, Card stock, ribbon, etc. – You’ll want to make sure to get the reinkers too if you don’t already have them since they are the first to fly out the door!

Here is the adorable Little Ladybug stamp set (152384 Sale-a-bration Host set) and coordinating Dies (153588).

Sue made this little Magnet Slider Card to share – so cute.

And this card is perfect for spring (and our neck of the woods, since we’ve already racked up 1/2 a year of rain already!)

The Under My Umbrella Stamp Set (151518) and Umbrella Builder Punch (151293) were used to create this lovely Double Z Fold card.

And if you love the NEW 2nd Release Sale-a-bration items, you’re going to love this soft lovely card done with our Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends.

How can you not love this Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (152312 Sale-a-bration)? It’s gorgeous! and the So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper (152313 Sale-a-bration) is just that. It just shimmers with it’s pearly finish.

And last but not least some 3d projects. This first one is a treat that Pat made special for the up coming St. Patty’s Day. Pat cleverly used the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (149488) to create this card in shades of green.

And Wanda made this little treat bag using our Acetate Card Boxes (144628) that she cut in 1/2.

It uses the Beautiful Moments stamp set for it’s sentiment, along with the very popular Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper (153558) – love the soft spring colors that this paper contains AND the fact it coordinates with our punches too.

Shining a spotlight on the Blue Mountain Stampers

Each month we gather and share as a team. And so today I thought I’d share some of the swaps that everyone brought this month.

These first two cards use items that you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order. This first card uses one of my favorite sets, Thoughtful Blooms and it’s coordinating Small Bloom Punch.

Done in Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade it’s bright and cheerful.

And this next card uses the Power of Hope and Stone 3D Embossing Folder Bundle found in the Sale-a-bration brochure.

It a trifold that opens to create a screen

If you love dies you’re going to love this next card that uses the Poppy Moments Dies (151594).

This set of dies is filled with beautiful images that stand alone, but also can be purchased with the coordinating stamp set, Peaceful Moments as a bundle (153824). The sentiments cover all kinds of occasions for your crafting needs.

This next card teams up the very popular Painted Poppies stamp set (151599) with the Beautiful Moments stamp set (151677).

Colored with our Stampin’ Blends it is quite striking

And finally a fun box card using the Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp set (152871) and the fun Dinoroar Designer Series Paper (149589) found in our Annual Catalog. Perfect for those little dinosaur lovers in your family!

Like I said, it’s always a lot of fun to see what everyone is up to during the month.
