Petal Palette Bundle

Hi folks!

Here’s one of the new bundles available in the new Occasions Catalog. It’s the stamp set Petal Palette and the Petals & More thinlits. There are a few more products in the Petal Passion Suite, and they all coordinate!
Also included are metal embellishments, organza ribbon, a pair of embossing folders, as well as the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. I’ve used that DSP with the bundle in this card:

I love that the DSP is black and white, so you can add as much or as little color you like. In this case, I added some bright colors from the Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter.  In the background are some leaves in Lemon Lime Twist, both stamped and cut out using the thinlits. Here is what it looked like when I first colored it, before blending the colors together:

Super simple, I just scribbled some colors that I wanted, then blended them together with the aqua painter – like a paint brush. It doesn’t matter if you overlap colors, that’s just going to give you better mixed colors.

I hope you liked this version. I originally got the idea from Patty Bennett, who did a video on watercoloring using some notecards with the same colors and basic layout.  Here are some of my versions of those, using some ribbon and cardstock to border the DSP, and the Whisper White Notecards – which are a bit smaller than the standard card size.

The good news is that because it’s Sale-A-Bration time, if you purchase the Petal Palette Bundle, which already includes a discounted price, you can also earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! How cool is that!

Sneak Peek at Beautiful Peacocks

Hi folks!

I have a sneak peek for you today from our upcoming Sale-A-Bration selections that start in January!  Check out this card I made using the new Beautiful Peacock stamp set!

I first saw this set when it Stampin’ Up! showed to us at OnStage. How fun is it!? It has multiple stamps included, so you can mix and match colors! I used Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist here.
We were also shown a really cute way to make the tail with a bit more pizzazz! Also using a sneak peek SAB item, a pack of Shimmer Ribbon including Bermuda Bay, I made this variation! You can unravel the ribbon a bit and you get this –

Fancy tail!  🙂  Super easy to make and it’s so pretty!

Both of these items can be earned for free starting in January, so be sure to check back for more sneak peeks and info on SAB as it gets closer.

Don’t forget to RSVP for my class this Saturday!
Happy Stamping!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop – SAB Thank You Set

Blogging Friends Icon

Welcome to this month’s “Blogging Friends Blog Hop!”

Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’? We are Stampin’ Up! demonstrators all across the U.S. and Canada. Most of us haven’t met in person, but love Stampin’ Up and want to share with you! Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!  Each month we’ll have a different theme; this month it is Sale-A-Bration!

It’s been a busy month and I haven’t had as much time to play with the SAB items as I had hoped, but today I have a set of cards here for you that was so quick to make! I used the SAB set, So Very Much. It’s the kind of set where the sentiment can be the entire card – super easy to do!

I decided to pair it up with some of the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper from the Occasions catalog. I picked three of the colors in the DSP, and used those as the background for the cards.  Here they are all together:


I used the Gold embossing powder with Versamark directly on the DSP, and layered it on Very Vanilla. Off to the side is one of the Lace Doilies with some Gold Metallic Thread. Some of the gold sequins have been added for a little bling to finish them off.

Here are the three versions individually…
Sahara Sand:


Blushing Bride:


Soft Sky:


I hope you like them, and remember – for each and every $50 in merchandise spent – you can earn this set (or other items) for FREE. 🙂
What’s even better, if you join my team you can pick 2 additional FREE stamp sets with your starter kit, ANY stamp sets from the catalogs, as your SAB treat!  Contact me for details, or check it out on my website here!

Before I get to a really cute sample from the SAB catalog with those chickens I mentioned…  I wanted to also say I will have my retired items out available for purchase at my class. I’m doing some crafty housecleaning, and they need to go!!
I’ve been taking pictures and will be posting them online, but you get first pick at my class if interested.

On to my card for today – I used a design right out of the SAB catalog!

New Occasions 2017 Catalog Sneak Peek

Hi folks! I have something cool to show you! The NEW Occasions Catalog is getting ready to launch on January 4th – and I was able to participate in card challenge coordinated by my upline using some of the new products!

I can’t show you the catalog *just* yet… soon, though!  What I can show you is projects I’ve made with the wonderful products in it!  So, today I will show you the card I made for the challenge:


It’s definitely got a bit of everything going on. 🙂  The cool polka dots and other designs inside are from the new Party Animal Designer Series Paper, which is part of the Party Animal Suite.  Who wouldn’t like it with a name like that??

The balloons and banner cutout is from the new Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies. It also has the individual balloons with the dots and stripes. This is great because this also coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch in the Annual Catalog. I used the punch to get the white behind the balloons to make the design stand out more from the Emerald Envy. The “Congratulations” actually came from the Balloon Celebration Stamp set also in the Annual catalog – but there are plenty more sentiments in the new Balloon Adventures set as part of the Suite! (I just don’t have it yet!)

Here is the inside of the card, where I used the same die as the front to create the pop-up look:


Here’s a better look from the top:


It folds right down the middle, but I only put adhesive on half of the middle balloon, so it would not fold – it makes it stick out more! The Happy-Happy came from the Number of Years stamp set. It fit perfectly – I stamped it twice.

To give it all a bit of sparkle, I added Wink of Stella on the balloons, both inside and on the front:


It’s definitely a one of a kind card, and I hope it inspires you to create something colorful!

The new Occasions catalog will be posted on January 4th, and if you don’t have one – but want one!!! Let me know and I will get one to you!
It’s double-y awesome because Sale-A-Bration starts the SAME day! I’ll have some details and samples of that coming up, too.

With all the excitement brewing over the new items, don’t forget about the current Holiday Catalog!!  There are still some fantastic sales going on, and some supplies are running out!  Here is a link right over to the Closeout Specials on my online store so you don’t miss out!
