Let’s Celebrate!


Today is my 200th blog post! It has been so much fun sharing with you!!! The idea to start this blog was my daughter’s brainstorm as a way to keep me busy (so I wouldn’t miss her) while she was away at college. Your comments have not only inspired me but helped me embrace this transition in life. I love creating and sharing with others and I have met so many wonderful people through this journey. Thank you for being my cyber friends!!

Let’s celebrate!  As promised, I am giving away some blog candy! Leave me a comment letting me know something you like about my blog or something you would like to see in future blog posts. I am always learning and trying new things and I will do my best to continue to help and inspire you.

Here’s what I’m giving away:

  • Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack
  • So Very Much Stamp Set
  • A handmade card from me

Deadline for blog candy comments is Wednesday, March 8 at 2:00 PM (EST).  (Now why did I pick 2:00???) I’ll choose a random comment and announce the winner on Thursday. *Note:  I can only ship within the U.S.

In addition to the prize above the winner will receive today’s card.  Let’s talk about this card… I love embossing folders!  I think you get the biggest bang for your buck with these. They add texture and interest to a card. The Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders are unique…they create a debossed impression. I also used the Confetti Embossing Folder which is fun for many occasions. The focal point of this card is the cool Star Blast Edgelits Dies cut from Gold Foil. The finishing touch is the gold bow which I attached with a glue dot.  This card was quick & easy to create.

Have a wonderful day!

A is for Avant Garden Stamp Set

sale-a-bration

It’s time to start Sale-A-Brating!!!  Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sales event of the year is here—and I’m here to help you learn about the products inside and out. This alphabet series will showcase new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am sharing a card I made using the Avant Garden Stamp Set (from the Sale-A-Bration catalog) and All Things Thanks Stamp Set (from the Occasions catalog).

img_8357

I started with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Sahara Sand cardstock for my card base. I scored it at 5 1/2 and added a 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 strip of Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper.  I love how this flower from the Avant Garden Stamp Set goes with the DSP from the Annual Catalog.  I stamped the flower on Whisper White using Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, and Whisper White (for the center of the flower).  I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits (LOVE these!!!!) to cut out the flower and layered it on a piece of Mint Macaron cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  (I love how Stampin’ Up! made it so these Framelits work together to give us more layering options.)  I used the Mini Striped Mint Macaron Ribbon to tie a simple knot around my flower layer and attached it to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from All Things Thanks and stamped in Island Indigo.  Quick & Simple!  I can think of so many people to send this card to. Florals are so versatile for so many different cards. It could be used for a birthday card, congratulations, thank you, or just a note for no special reason.  I really like this sentiment and font!  Keep reading to find out how you can get this card delivered to your mailbox!
