Six Sided Sampler

With convention next week I thought I would share with you some of the great cards that I’ve received in the past during my swaps. Today’s card is made with the Six Sided Sampler stamp set (130953/130956) and it is done in shades of Bermuda Bay.

Six Sided Sampler Convention Swap 2013

Don’t you love how our color families work together to create shades of the same color? And of course all the choices we have for the latest hexagon trend.

This card uses the Honeycomb Embossing Folder along with our Hexagon Punch to create this fun bold design. And check out the Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon – it’s part of the Weekly Deals so you can get it at a great price this week.

A Dozen Thoughts

Todays card is one that I received from my friend Cindy. I just love the colors she used to create this card. The Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper is one of my favorites since I love the colors in it – they are bright and cheerful, don’t you think?  And the greetings in the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set are great for a lot of different occasions too. I especially like the one she used on this card from the set.

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!

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.
