Nuts About Squirrels Color Blocking Card

Want to create a big bold look for your next project? Why not try out this simple Color Blocking technique that I used for this card? It’s quick and simple to do but yet backs a wow too.

I’ve used the fun Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper that you can earn when placing a qualifying order or gathering with friends. And got to say it’s a huge stack of paper that you’ll love using over and over again during your crafting since it covers not only the different fall and winter occasions but also has some basic patterns too!

Check out this card that I made highlight 2 of the patterns in this pack of paper.

Fun right? And the 6×6 2022 In Color Glimmer Paper adds a bit of shimmer and shine to this project. I just love this cute little 2 step stamp set, Nuts About Squirrels for projects and treats. Want to see how I made this fun card to send to friends and family this fall?

True Beauty & Back Stage Fun!

Yesterday I shared the first of two swaps that I created for the Back Stage event last week. I I decided I wanted to do both a masculine and feminine card for the swaps. So today I’ll be sharing the swap I made with the True Beauty stamp set (158976).

This stamp set is perfect for feminine cards with it’s floral images and lovely font. The true watercolor look is built into the stamp so it’s soo easy to use and create a multidimensional look for any project!

This set also has a coordinating set of dies and is part of a suite of products, but for this project I wanted to keep it simple. (A late night the day before you fly out will do that lol)

Here is the card I came up with.

Sweet with a bold pop of color. Perfect for a friend! So why not check out my video tutorial and pdf for the project I have created for you? And did you know when I give you a Classic Ink item # on my pdfs I include the reinker item # for the ink pad? I always tell folks to order them together so you’ll never have a dry ink pad. Nothing more frustrating when creating, right? Something I learned the hard way when I first started stamping. Anyhow here is the the video tutorial.

And how about some pictures too – Back Stage is a special event that Stampin’ Up! holds for it’s leaders once a year. It was held in New Orleans this year some place I’d never been before, so it was exciting to see what this town was all about. We stayed in the French Quarter and after I arrived I had some time grab lunch and to explore with new friends before our Sweets & Swaps event that evening.

What a view!

Check in brought a fun swap bag filled with goodies – Stampin’ Up! always spoils us!

Swapping with 500 of your fellow leaders what could be more fun?

and of course there were sweets and entertainment too!

The next 2 days brought lots of wonderful local food, training, fun and fellowship with new and old friends.

And our final night ended with a Mardi Gras parade and party.

As always our hearts were full as we said goodbye at the end of the evening,

until next time when we gather again. Do these Stampin’ Up! events appeal to you too? Why learn more about becoming a Demonstrator and joining my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers HERE or contact me today?
