More Bloomin’ Love

Today’s cards not only use the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, but have stepped it up by adding the coordinating Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits Die (140621). These two items are found in a great money saving bundle (140818) so you can step it up too and save 15% while you’re doing it!

This first card was given to me by Irene – I just love how the heart is teamed up with our New Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (141897).

Wildflower Meadow

Wildflower Meadow (item 129165/129168) is a background stamp that I think you’re going to love using. It makes a quick and easy card and lends itself to all kinds of different techniques.

Wildflower Meadow (2)

I don’t think the picture shows it well, but if you could see it in person you would notice that the image has a shimmer to it. How did I get it? Well I used our Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin’ Pad (item 126857) and Clear Embossing Powder (item 109130) when I stamped the image. Then I used our coordinating Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder (item 129736) and ran it through the Big Shot.

I used my Stampin’ Markers to create the greeting along with the Label Love Stamp Set (item 130619/130622). And after stamping punched it out with our coordinating punch, the Artisan Label. A quick bit of ribbon tied in a bow and voila’.

The great thing about the new 2013-2014 Catalog is that there are more bundles than ever! Did you notice that I said coordinating items? Well I used two different Bundles to create this card that are available at a 15% discount. The Wildflower Meadow Bundle (item 132735/132985) and the Label Love Bundle (item 132723/132722).

So now when you order items that coordinate, watch for the Bundle & Save box listed by them in the catalog.

Flower Shop

This past weekend I held my Luau Catalog Launch Party here in Clarkesville and wanted to share with you the Make n’ Take we made using the Flower Shop Stamp Set (item 130939/130942).

Luau Catalog Launch Make n Take Flower Shop

I made this card using our Flower Shop Bundle (Item 132727/132726 found on page 95) in our NEW 2013-2014 Catalog. Did you know that there are more bundles than ever are available in the new catalog? And when you purchase any bundle you’ll get a 15% discount! How great is that!

Don’t you love our NEW In Colors they’re just so yummy? I used the Crisp Cantaloupe from the 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (item 130136) and teamed it up with Calypso Coral for a soft tone on tone look.

I think everyone had a good time getting together, seeing all the new catalog items, getting some free goodies, and stamping their Make and Take.

Here are some pictures of everyone stamping on Sunday afternoon. (Ooops, I forgot to take pictures on Saturday.)

Six-Sided Sampler Birthday

Today’s card is one that I created this weekend during the Blue Mountain Stamper’s Retreat with my brother in mind. I thought this set, with its great hexagon images, would be perfect for a masculine card.  His birthday was Saturday so this will be a bit late, but I’m sure he won’t mind. I used the Six-Sided Sampler Bundle (item 132725/132724) along with the Really Good Greetings (item 130330/130333) from the NEW 2013-2014 Catalog.

Isn’t it great that we have more bundles offered in the NEW 2013-2014 Catalog like the NEW Six-Sided Sampler Bundle? Not only do you get the stamp set and punch, but you’ll get a 15% discount when ordering them together! It’s a win, win right?

I mentioned in my last post that I was getting ready for my Blue Mountain Stampers’ Retreat. I can’t tell you how much fun I had spending the whole weekend with my fellow demonstrators. I believe everyone whole heartedly agreed that we should at least make it a yearly event, maybe more – This event is now one of the perks of being part of my team – Fellowship, Fun and Sharing (along with an all night slumber party! What great girl time or just time away from the stresses of regular life, yippee!) Some of the girls have never been to my home here in Clarkesville so they really enjoyed the scenery and quiet. And believe me creative juices flowed well into the night; I know I was shocked to see it was the week hours of the morning when I looked up at the clock!

Here is a shot of my classroom set up and ready for the event.
