Highlight on Sale-a-bration & In Your Words

The In Your Words stamp set (156619) is filled with wonderful sentiments to use for all kinds of occasions.

This stamp set is one of our special Host Benefits during Sale-a-bration that you’ll earn in addition to the regular benefits. That is a great way to have fun with family and friends AND get free product!

Let’s check out some cards made with this stamp set and more. These first 2 cards have been teamed up with other Sale-a-bration products. for this first card the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 156630) was used as the back drop. I just love this kind of paper since Black & White is so classic and can be teamed up with the color of your choice like this card does with the pretty Fresh Freesia.

Add a bit of color to the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper with our Blending Brushes and you’ve got tons of choices too!

Or how about these fun birthday cards, perfect for a winter time birthday since it uses the fun Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 158420)?

Circles every where even the back ground on this card since it uses the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders (155432) on the Misty Moonlight layer. And this next card uses the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (Host 155426) as a backdrop along with the fun Stitched So Sweetly (151690) and Basic Borders Dies (155558) to create a wonderful fall color combination.

And if you are loving the Designer Series Paper in our Catalogs how about this next card using the very popular Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499) and Hippo & Friends Dies (153585) found in our Annual Catalog?

And last but not least these last 2 cards were created with my favorite Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (155807).

And who can resist this Mint Macaron fun fold? I love this little sentiment surprise when you open the first panel.

Fun right?

Mahalo Maui Luau & More

Our last full day in Maui was filled with friends, new and old. Stampin’ Up! gave us one last opportunity to gather as a group for a wonderful evening right off the beach.

A Quick pic with Shelli at the Maui Incentive Trip Luau

The smell of Plumeria filled the air as we mingled and gathered at our assigned seats to enjoy the evening and listen to the story of the Island.

Sunset at the Luau with my husband, Larry

My husband, Larry, loved his first Stampin’ Up! event as did our daughter who was able to join us. He told me later that I really need to earn the next Incentive Trip.

The Luau also gave us one last opportunity to wear our beautiful leis that we were given when we arrived.

I got a chance to meet 3 new stamping friends at our table.

It was a wonderful night to remember.

And this beautiful hand crafted necklace was my parting pillow gift that I found when we returned to our room that evening.

It was a trip of a lifetime and I have to say once again, thank you. I couldn’t do what I love and share what I love doing if it weren’t for you! I appreciate you and thank you again for supporting my Stampin’ Up! business and spending some time stamping with me.

If you’d like to see more photos of the Luau and my final day in Maui stop on by my facebook page where I’ll share some photos with you later today.

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.

More Berry Blessings

During this cold winter weather it’s always fun to see the bright reds and blues of berries in my local grocery stores. It’s a sign and promise of what is to come and warmer weather. I’ve had blueberry bushes in my yard for years and always enjoy seeing those little bell shaped blossoms. I was surprised years ago while sitting in our local extension service class learning how to install the bushes to learn all the benefits of those little sticks we were going to pick up. After a few years not only did our bushes at our old house beginning give a bounty of berries they were pretty year round too. Even in the fall the leaves turn bright red before they fall off. How about you? Are you dreaming of soft summer breezes and fresh sweet berries from the yard?

Check out these lovely cards made using the Berry Blessings Stamp set and Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 157613). This first one uses a fun fold and our Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue.

More Berry Blessings

And this next one uses Real Red to create these yummy raspberries. A bit of our Champagne Foil sheets and Basic Pearls adds a bit of shine.

And this last card is a fun way to use scraps,

So what do you think? Which card do you like best?

Lovely Timeless Tulips

I really enjoy using the Timeless Tulip stamp set and it’s coordinating punch. I’ve shared some card tutorials with you using this bundle and today I’m going to share a few more cards with you that I received in a swap.

These first two cards use just the stamp set and 2 step stamping.

The Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (149488) was used on this first card to give a bit of texture and interest. And this second card done in Melon Mambo uses the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set (149275) found in the Annual Catalog to create an elegant feel.

It’s a fun fold that opens a bit differently too.

This next card is a 3d Pop Up Card that folds flat for mailing. I love the look, reminds me of a planter filled with tulips.

And finally some punch art, this card uses just the Tulip Builder Punch and our Pigment Sprinkles (149663) to create this fun colorful octopus. I hope you can see all the depth that has been created simply by using the punch and some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

How fun is that? Simply punch in different widths for the octopus’ tentacles and use the leaves for waves under the little guy. I just love it!

So which is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think?

Then stop back by next week when I’ll be sharing some of my card tutorials with you.
