Painter’s Palette

Today’s post is going to be a quick one since I’ve had an unexpected car emergency with my son today.

Why not check out this fun card I made recently using our NEW 2016 In Color, Flirty Flamingo.

Last Chance Coffee & Cards Buffet May 2016 (8)

Our 2016-2018 In Colors are bright and cheerful and right on trend!  And when you stamp off like I did on the palette you’ll get different tones of the same hue. I simply inked up the swash once and stamped three times without reinking in between.

I haven’t had a chance to post my New Catalog Organizational items yet, but stop on by tomorrow when I’ll be start sharing them with you.

No Bones about It – Swapping Fun!

Do you like to see what others create? Well I do – an that is part of the fun getting together for our team meetings. Swapping and learning from each other. Here are three of the cards that I swapped last week at the meeting I told you about last Thursday.

This first card was given to me by Susan and it uses the stamp set No Bones About It (138756) and the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack (138756).

Swaps & more

One of the things that I enjoy about being a demonstrator is stamping with other and sharing ideas. So today I thought I’d share with you some of the swaps that I received during May’s meetings. After all isn’t it fun to see what others are doing with the same stamp set you may have?

Check out this first card from my friend Anna using the Zoo Babies stamp set (130453/130456).

Zoo Babies Swap

And how about this one that Terry gave me using the Butterfly Basics (138813/138816/137154) and Sassy Salutations stamp sets (132070/126707).

Butterfly Basics Swap

And who doesn’t need thank you cards? Here is one from Kathy using the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set (136835). This set has such a great selection of image sizes to choose from.

Another Thank You swap

And don’t you love these colors together? Crushed Curry and Blackberry Bliss along with the Guy Greetings Stamp set (138825/138828/137178). I’m sure you know I love this set – since it has such great images and wonderful sentiments!

Guy Greetings Swap

And while these two cards use some items that are no longer available they were such great cards I thought I’d share them with you anyhow.

This first one uses the Flower Shop stamp set (130939/130942) and is simply elegant done in a shades of brown.

Flower Shop Swap

And do you see the NEW embossing folder, Boho Chic (138286). What a great texture it adds to this card, right?

Vintage Flower Shop

Today’s card is one that has for better term, a vintage feel to it. Isn’t it funny how you can change the whole look of a card with just the choice of card stock and colors you use?

Flower Shop

The base for this card is Naturals Ivory Card Stock (101849) and if you haven’t ever used our Naturals Card Stock you’re in for a pleasant surprise when you try it. It has such a rich earthy feel to it, and it can really make a difference to the whole look of your project. I use the Nautrals card stocks when I’m wanting a more subtle feel of color, (Whisper White or Very Vanilla), and look for a project.

This card uses the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set which is a wonderful set to add to your collection since it is so versatile and lends itself to so many different styles. It is one that you may pass over at first when you flip through the catalog, since it seems a little bland at first – but don’t let that deter you. Once you stamp with it you’ll wonder why you didn’t get it sooner!

Hope to see you this Saturday – There is still time to RSVP!

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.

Really Good Greetings

This week I’ll be sharing some more of the great convention swaps that I received. I hope you are enjoying them. So without further ado…. Here is another great card that I received from Wanda at convention using the Really Good Greetings stamp set. There are a lot of fresh, fun greetings that come in this set that I think you’ll really enjoy. This card uses one of my favorites and isn’t it great it fits right inside one of our Chalk Talk Framelits?

Really Good Greetings convention swap 2013

I just love the way Stampin’ Up! items coordinate together. It is one of the things that initially drew me to Stampin’ Up! when I began stamping all those years ago. I quickly learned that I saved money because I wasn’t always trying to find something that would work together with something I already had like I did when I purchased things at my local big box store.

If you love the Flower Shop stamp set as much as I do you’ll want to check out my video with hints on how to assemble your stamps so they line up easily with the coordinating punch. Click HERE to see that post.

Flower Shop

Flower Shop (item 130939/130942) is one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2013-2014 Catalog. What makes it one of my favorites?

And Best of all the fact that it comes in a Bundle (item 132727/132726)which means you save 15%!

Dazzling Flower Shop

Today’s card uses the Flower Shop stamp set (item 130939/130942) and it may just dazzle you – lol. One of the great things about the Flower Shop stamp set is that it comes with a coordinating punch, the NEW Pansy Punch (item 130698). And I don’t know about you, but I looove punches! (Shhh..don’t tell my husband, but punches are one of my secret obsessions.) And better yet these two coordinating products make up another of our great bundles that save you 15%– The Flower Shop Bundle (item 132727/132726).

Flower Shop

When creating this card I used our yummy Strawberry Slush pattern from the 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (item 130136) as the layer on the bottom. Polka Dots are so much fun aren’t they? So I was very happy to see them in the Paper Stack again.

Next I used one of my favorite ribbons, the 5/8″ Whisper White Organza Ribbon. I bet you’re asking why it is one of my favorites right. Well it’s because it ties beautifully when making bows and is just a really great basic to have in your card supplies.  You just can’t go wrong with a Whisper White ribbon.

Finally I used my Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to add the Dazzling Diamonds to the flower to make it sparkle!

This greeting is from the NEW Hostess only stamp set Express Yourself (130336/130339). Isn’t the font lovely? Would you like one of the exclusive Hostess items for yourself? Why not hold a private party with me and have some friends over for an hour of fun – just email me and we’ll pick a date that works best for you!

Bright Blossom Blueberries – Take 2

Okay, okay, I know I’m a bit OCSD (that’s Obsessive Compulsive Stamping Disorder for those of you who’ve never heard of it before – lol). I couldn’t resist making yesterday’s card again making a change. And I have to say I really do like this one better, the greeting pops just like I thought it would. (You can click here to my first version of the card.) What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best.

Yesterday I promised to show you one of my favorite blueberry recipes using those yummy berries. So here it is – this never lasts long in my house I can already hear my daughter coming – Quick hide the Blueberry Pizza!

Blueberry Pizza

And your going to love how its soooo easy to make.

Blueberry Pizza

1 ¼ c. powdered sugar

1 c. flour

½ c. butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1 (8 oz.) ctn. Cool whip

2 c. fresh blueberries

In a medium bowl, mix together ¼ cup powdered sugar, flour and butter to a soft dough. Spread the dough onto a 12-inch pizza pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden. Let cool. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, remaining cup of powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix well, then fold in whipped topping. Spread mixture over the cooled crust; top with blueberries. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

I know this recipe is called Blueberry Pizza, but it’s just as yummy if you don’t have a pizza pan if you make it in a 9×13 pan. Enjoy!
